During one month, from 1st to 30th November 2016, all patients admitted in one of the medical Dpt of our Hospital (Internal Medicine Dpt, Endocrinology, ICU) will be screened for multi-drug resistant bacteria carriage (after written consent). They will answer to a questionnaire about previous travel in a foreign country during the previous year, hospitalization or not during this travel.
This study also aims to raise awareness among both patients and health-care providers about the importance of pre-travel health consultation and preventive interventions prior to international travel. Through appropriate health counseling, cancer patients will have less risk of having travel -related health complications and thus have a better quality of life and overall improved sense of wellbeing.
This study is part of a larger prospective cohort study (JOKA), designed to study febrile illness occurring during a travel to the tropics, as well as the evaluation of the clinical use of malaria rapid diagnostic tests (RDT) by travelers or their peers during travel, as a decision aid for the management of febrile illness in the tropics. Filter paper blood spots and paired serology are used in addition to routine post-travel evaluation, to study the incidence and etiological ...
This prospective, observational pilot study is designed to assess feasibility, refine the target population, and quickly test qualitative and quantitative changes in the microbiome after short-term travel to South or Southeast Asia, regions where rates of travelers' diarrhea and intestinal colonization with antimicrobial resistant bacteria are highest. To measure the diversity change of the intestinal microbiota, participants will complete a questionnaire and provide a stool s...
Research questions: What effect does provision of food vouchers have on uptake of voluntary medical male circumcision? What is the amount of food voucher that should be given? Hypothesis: The percentage of men who are compensated for costs of travel to and lost wages due to VMMC and who undergo VMMC will be higher than the percentage of men who are compensated for lost wages or travel and undergo VMMC, and both of these percentages will be higher than the percentage of men ...
New mobile Health (mHealth) technology creates an opportunity to approach travel medicine research in a different way, revolutionising our understanding of risks to travellers. Using mHealth technology, the Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Prevention Institute (EBPI), University of Zurich (UZH), developed a TRAVEL app in collaboration with the Eidgnössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zurich. By using this new technology, an extensive collection of data (prospective collection...
Since it is not routine practice in France to raise public awareness about the risk of acquiring multidrug resistant Enterobacteriaceae (MRE) during international travel, the investigators aimed to determine, among French travelers attending a consultation for travel medicine, patients level of knowledge about the risk of acquiring MRE.
Observational study to investigate circadian rhythm patterns
International travel is well reported to be associated with acquisition of multidrug-resistant organisms, however, the impact of colonization of these multidrug-resistant organisms is currently uncertain. As colonization of multidrug-resistant organisms had been demonstrated to be associated with distinct intestinal microbiota composition and travellers constitute a generally healthy population with minimal antibiotics exposure; by evaluating serial stool samples before and aft...
This study is part of a larger prospective cohort study (JOKA), designed to study the incidence and etiological spectrum of febrile illness occurring during a travel to the tropics, as well as clinical course, care, treatment and outcome of these febrile illness episodes. Its objective is to evaluate the clinical use of malaria rapid diagnostic tests (RDT) by travelers or their peers during travel, as a decision aid for the management of febrile illness in the tropics. I...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if supplemental oxygen during air travel can be reliably titrated using a Hypoxia-altitude simulation test (HAST). Also, the effect of oxygen supplementation given with the various oxygen equipment allowed for air travel is studied.
Self-defining memories (SDMs) are memories that are still important today to understand who the investigators are and participate to the maintain of personal identity. SDMs are also linked to our capacity to project ourselves into the future. In bipolar disorder, life events play an important role in the course and outcome of the disease. the study is the first to investigate SDMs and self-defining future projections in a population of remitted patients with bipolar disorder.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether motivational text messages and/or travel vouchers are effective in increasing cervical cancer screening rates in urban and rural regions of Northern Tanzania.
Due to the hypobaric hypoxia during air travel, some patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) need supplemental oxygen during air travel. The study aims to evaluate if adding exercise desaturation to the pre-flight evaluation will help predict requirements for in-flight supplemental oxygen.
The aim of this study is to conduct a small randomized controlled trial (RCT) for a 10-week mobile phone intervention using principles of Cognitive Behavior Therapy to target general and minority stressors and treat anxiety and depression in young men romantically/sexually attracted to men.
The objective of this study is to assess the impact of a structured intervention and/or free distribution of condoms during the pre-travel consultation on sexual risk behavior of young persons traveling alone.
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has sponsored a consortium of investigators to conduct a clinical treatment trial, Treatment Options for type 2 Diabetes in Adolescents and Youth (TODAY).

Subjects will be asked to take one capsule containing a mixture of probiotics or a placebo capsule a day, within the week before departure, during the travel and up to 3 days after return. They will note the following outcomes in a diary: occurence of diarrhea, number and consistency...
Induction of labor is one of the most common obstetrical medical procedures performed today. Iatrogenic stimulation of uterine contractions prior to the onset of spontaneous labor is undertaken for various maternal and fetal indications and spans 20% of deliveries today. 1. During the past years there has been an additional rise due to elective inductions 2. Induction is undertaken when potential risks of prolonging pregnancy outweigh the risks of induced delivery, p...
Women having abortions are at high risk for subsequent unintended pregnancy and repeat abortion. Clearly, encouraging contraceptive use after abortion is a high priority. Long acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs, Implants and intrauterine contraception) are the most effective methods to help women avoid a repeat unwanted pregnancy and abortion. Studies in surgical abortion patients, show that "quickstart" of a LARC - i.e., inserting it during the surgical procedure - is ass...
