Circulating RNAs in Acute Congestive Heart Failure

The purpose of this American Heart Association-funded and NIH-funded study is to examine circulating RNAs in the acute CHF setting, how they change with decongestive therapy, and their function in vitro and in vivo. The investigators are testing the hypothesis that ex-RNA levels change significantly during decongestion therapy and can be used as a marker of those individuals who respond to CHF therapy (in terms of cardiac structure or outcome). Additionally, the translational ...

Determining the Impact of Penicillin in Latent RHD: The GOAL Trial

Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) affects at least 32.9 million people, mostly children living in low-resource settings. Long-term intramuscular benzathine penicillin G (BPG) prophylaxis is proven to prevent progression of chronic valve changes in patients with established rheumatic heart disease (RHD) and to allow regression of valve changes in patients with a history of acute rheumatic fever (ARF) with mild RHD. However, in low-resource settings ARF is an elusive diagnosis, and m...

Study and Follow-up of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1

Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type I (MEN1) or Wermer syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease that predisposes patients to the development of endocrine tumours, principally parathyroid, pituitary or duodenal-pancreatic tumours. It is due to mutations that abolish the function of the MEN1 gene, which contributes to tumour regulation. It is a rare disease, with an estimated prevalence in the general population of 1/30,000. Penetrance of the disease is late but very high (almost ...

Natural History Study of Patients With X-linked Retinal Dystrophy Associated With Mutations in Retinitis Pigmentosa GTPase Regulator (RPGR)

The rod-cone dystrophies (often referred to as retinitis pigmentosa (RP)) are a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of disorders in which there is progressive loss of rod and later cone photoreceptor function leading to severe visual impairment. RP usually occurs as an isolated retinal disorder, but it may also be seen in association with systemic abnormalities.

A Comparison of Eleview Versus Hetastarch as Injectate for EMR

EMR is a technique used for the removal of flat or sessile neoplasms confined to the superficial layers of the GI tract using a snare. Injection-assisted EMR is commonly used during resections of larger flat lesions as it provides submucosal lift of polyps, adenomas, other gastrointestinal mucosal lesions or early-stage cancers prior to EMR. This has been found to minimize mechanical or electrocautery damage to the deep layers of the gastrointestinal tract wall as the injectate...

Hong Kong Prostate Cancer Study Group Database

Prostate cancer (PCa) is ranked 3rd in annual incidence of male cancer and ranked 5th for cancer-related death in men in Hong Kong which accounts for about 9.1 deaths per 100,000 men in 2011. Its incidence is rising rapidly, almost tripled in the past 10 years.

Influence of ABO Blood Group on the Risk of Complications in Alcoholic or Viral C Cirrhosis?

The non-O blood group is a risk factor of deep vein thrombosis and recurrence of thromboembolic events, especially when associated with Factor 5 Leiden or prothrombin G20210A mutations. A recent study suggests that non-O blood group may promote portal vein thrombosis in non cirrhotic patients. In addition, in general population and chronic hepatitis C, non-O blood group combined with one or the other of the above genetic abnormalities is associated with an increased risk of ...
