Social phobia is one of the most prevalent anxiety disorders in the western world. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is the psychological treatment that has the largest empirical support. However, the availability to CBT is very limited in Sweden due to lack of therapists with proper training. Therefore it is important to evaluate alternative forms of treatment that are more time efficient. One of these methods is Internet based self-help therapy, which has proven to be an ef...
This Study is a collaborative project with partners (people with scleroderma and stakeholders) designed to refine an internet program for patients with scleroderma and to compare the internet program to an authoritative educational book (Taking Charge of Systemic Sclerosis [TOSS]). During a 16-week comparative effectiveness 16-week randomized controlled trial, the investigators will recruit up to 250 patients who will be randomized to either TOSS or authoritative book for pati...
The effects of prolonged negative energy balance, commonly observed in sustained military training and combat operations, on systemic inflammatory responses has not been determined. To define the putative role of energy balance on inflammation and its downstream effects, we will conduct a controlled laboratory study that simulates extensive physiological stressors to determine if inflammation is exacerbated by underfeeding. This design will test the hypothesis that maintaining ...
High quality behavioral weight loss programs are not widely accessible. The Internet offers one way to deliver health behavior programs to a wider audience. However, effective weight loss treatments are intensive and program delivery over the Internet may not be capable of duplicating the level of engagement typically generated during traditional in-person treatment. The goal of this study is to test the effectiveness of three weight loss interventions: Internet alone, Inter...
The purpose of this project is to determine the feasibility and effectiveness of a 6-week, internet-based, Energy Conservation and Activity Management intervention among women who report cancer-related fatigue following breast cancer treatment.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Patients require good communication with the physician to improve control illness. Shared decision making is a promising opportunity for chronic disease management due to the relative cost, medicine optimization and decreases hospital admissions/re-admissions
The objective of this study is to demonstrate that frequent atrio-ventricular (AV/PV) and inter-ventricular (V-V) delay optimization using QuickOpt in patients with CRT-D device results in improved clinical response over standard of care (i.e. empiric programming or one-time optimization using any non-IEGM optimization methods).
This study will evaluate the effectiveness of an Internet intervention designed to reduce the behaviors and symptoms of pediatric encopresis.
Amikacin dose optimization is challenging in critically ill patients. The use of BestDose software algorithm-based drug optimization could help to achieve the recommended target concentrations (60-80 mg/L) after administration of the second dose of amikacin, associated with improved outcome. The study investigators hypothesize that 80% of patients undergoing drug dosing optimization using the BestDose software in the interventional group will reach the predefined PK/PD targets.
This purpose of this study is determine whether the use of internet technology to communicate with adolescents about contraception is feasible and to determine whether it is more effective than traditional methods. Study subjects will complete baseline and follow-up surveys at 3, 6, and 12 months about their contraceptive practice and sexual behaviors. Subjects with internet access will be randomized to either completing surveys remotely over the internet through email ...
The present study examines the efficacy of a brief intervention for problematic Internet use based on Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in a sample of students screened proactively in vocational schools in Northern Germany. Participants will be randomized in an intervention and a control group. It is hypothesized that after 12 months, participants of the intervention group fulfill less DSM-5 criteria for Internet use disorders, spend less tim...
Sudden cardiac death is the most frequent cause of death in industrialized countries. The most efficient interventiont in ventricular fibrillation is defibrillation in an appropriate timely manner. But since the intervention of defibrillation the optimal shock energy is unknown. As a too low energy is not able to terminate ventricular fibrillation a too high energy may cause asystole wich jeopardizes survival itself. We study the efficacy of different shock energies on the term...

Deciding about prolonged life support for critically ill patients can be very difficult. Therefore, the investigators are doing a study to see if an internet-based decision aid can improve the quality of decision making for substitute decision makers of patients who are in the intensive care unit (ICU).
30% of heart failure patients that receive a device for cardiac resynchronization therapy fail to show clinical improvement. The reason for lack of response is still unclear but factors such as scar tissue in the heart musculature, inadequate lead placement, device-settings and the degree of dyssynchrony before implant seems to be important. In this study, these factors are further investigated.
This study evaluates the effect of the "hunger hormone" ghrelin on human decision-making. Participants will be given an injection of ghrelin or saline on different study days and will then be asked to make a series of computer-based decisions. The investigators hypothesize that ghrelin will increase participant's preference for energy-dense foods and will also increase impulsiveness in decision making.
Systemic autoimmune myopathies are a heterogeneous group of rheumatic diseases that primarily affect the skeletal muscles. The transcranial current stimulation technique has been frequent, for example, in patients with ischemic stroke or for the optimization of muscular performance in athletes. However, to date, there are no studies evaluating this technique in patients with systemic autoimmune myopathies. Therefore, the main objective of the present prospective, randomized, do...
