The absence of common tool of evaluation of the children entraine a big deal in prescriptions and the practices of the nursing.The aim of this study is to estimate the improvement of the food empowerment of the premature newborn children after the introduction of a help tool at the food progress which allows to fit the prescription of food(supply) to th...
Since it is very difficult to have the real thing (Mediterranean diet) we need to find an alternative to reduce cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk in subjects with moderate hypercholesterolaemia (a major CVD risk factor) living in western countries. Therefore, this proposed study is designed to assess if giving olive oil supplements, with or without stanol ester, is equivalent to following a Mediterranean diet. Furthermore, the stanol-olive oil combination may prove to be superi...
It is difficult to predict which patients with acute small bowel obstruction require operative intervention and which ones can be handled conservatively. Similarly, strangulation remains difficult decision. The rationale for this observative study is to collect prospective cohort of patients with small bowel obstruction to create scoring system to predict early 1) small bowel obstruction resistant to conservative therapy, 2) strangulation.
The purpose of the study is to determine the effectiveness of an acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) pseudoephedrine combination for the treatment of pain and congestion symptoms compared to the effectiveness of the individual components of the medicine and the placebo (dummy treatment that looks like the real thing).The combination product of acetylsalicylic acid / pseudoephedrine is already marketed in several European countries as Aspirin® Complex.
Measurement of the small bowel length studied by anatomists, surgeons and radiologists. Results were highly different among these series. Technical and mechanical factors have major effects on measures. Investigators decided to reach a standardization for the measurement of small bowel length.
Background: Investigators have previously shown that misoprostol can heal small bowel ulcers in aspirin users with small bowel bleeding. However, the rate of small-bowel mucosal healing was low with use of misoprostol alone. There is evidence to suggest that bacteria contribute to the development aspirin-induced ulcers and antibiotics may be useful in its treatment. Rifaximin, a non-absorbed oral antibiotic that target the gastrointestinal tract have been shown to be safe and e...
Sudoscan™ (Impeto Medical, Paris France) uses electrochemical skin conductance as a novel noninvasive method to detect sudomotor dysfunction. Several small studies have recently shown that Sudoscan use in the assessment of small fiber polyneuropathy (in diabetes mellitus) can be performed non-invasively, quickly and effectively. The investigators aim to study the use of Sudoscan in rare disease condition associated with small fiber polyneuropathy.
Small bowel capsule endoscopy is a test used to investigate for any abnormalities in the small bowel. The small bowel is about 4 meters long. The battery time of the capsule is about 8 hours. During this time the capsule takes pictures as it passes through the small bowel. In about 15-20% of capsule tests the battery expires before the capsule passes through the entire small bowel into the colon. Incomplete tests indicate that a variable portion of small bowel was not visualize...
Physical activity is an important factor in understanding how diseases can affect a child. Decreases in physical activity are sometimes the first thing that happens before a child is diagnosed with a disease. When a child sees their doctor, that visit reflects a single point in time. It does not capture how a child feels during the days in between visits to their doctor. This study plans to use special monitors called actigraphs to collect information about physical activity in...
The study is designed to explore the potential of the epigenetic agent RRx-001 to sensitize small cell and non-small cell lung cancer and high grade neuroendocrine tumor patients who previously responded and now have failed a platinum based doublet to the previously effective therapy.
This is a Phase I study of the ALK/FAK/Pyk2 inhibitor CT-707 in patients with ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer. The purpose of the study is to determine the MTD/RP2D of CT-707 and evaluate whether CT-707 is safe and has beneficial effects in ALK-positive advanced non-small cell lung cancer.
The investigators aimed to confirm the efficacy and safety of transdermal penis enlargement for 24 weeks after CMDHA0101 injection in subjects who wanted penile enlargement in male patients with small-penis syndrome *. *Small-penis syndrome is the anxiety of thinking one's penis is too small - even though it isn't.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of small molecule therapy in primary cells derived from patients with lysosomal storage disease. The study will focus on activity of small molecules, in terms of measurements enzymes activity and level of substrates accumulations. Also, the effects of small molecules on cell function, including autophagy-lysosomal pathways, metabolism, mitochondrial function and immune reaction will be investigated.
The purpose of this study is to learn if using an Interspace between the Popliteal Artery and Capsule of the Knee (iPACK) injection technique (also called a "nerve block") that numbs the nerves going to the back part of the knee to aid in physical therapy after surgery. The iPACK technique uses a numbing solution (local anesthetics) that is injected behind the knee to reduce pain and to help straighten the knee. This block may affect movement in the leg and make the legs weak, ...
This trial will evaluate two separate groups of patients with stage IIIB/IV non-small cell lung cancer. The objective of Group 1 is to investigate an FDA-approved drug in stage IIIB/IV non-small cell lung cancer patients that has spread to the bones. The objective of Group 2 is to see if a blood test can be used to predict when cancer-related bone lesions develop. This trial is seeking patients 18 years or older that have been diagnosed with Stage IIIB or Stage IV non-small ce...
This clinical study is being conducted at multiple sites to determine the activity, safety, and tolerability of XL999 when given weekly to patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). XL999 is a small molecule inhibitor of multiple kinases including VEGFR, PDGFR, FGFR, FLT-3, and Src, which are involved in tumor cell growth, formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis), and metastasis.
The study compares 2 medicines used for the treatment of children who are born small and who stayed small: somapacitan given once a week (a new medicine) and Norditropin® given once a day (the medicine doctors can already prescribe). Participants will either get somapacitan or Norditropin® - which treatment is decided by chance. Both participants and the study doctor will know which treatment the participants get. The study will last for 4 years. Participants will take eithe...
Purpose: To compare the accuracies of computed tomographic (CT) enterography and magnetic resonance (MR) enterography for the detection and radiomics characterization of small-bowel tumors (including gastrointestinal stromal tumors, adenomas and lymphomas, etc); Hypothesis: MR enterography was noninferior to CT enterography for the diagnosis and evaluation of small bowel tumors in generally well-distended small bowel.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of FR901228 in treating patients who have refractory or progressive small cell lung cancer or non-small cell lung cancer.
The purpose of the present study is to determine whether use of a small volume spacer is associated with better bronchodilatation in an unselected population of patients with documented reversible airflow limitations.
Little is known about the prevalence of small bowel polyps in patients with sporadic Duodenal/Ampullary polyps. The investigators aim to investigate the prevalence of small bowel polyps in patients with sporadic (ie not related to FAP or PJS) duodenal/ampullary adenomas by performing small bowel capsule endoscopy and comparing the results to those acquired from a control cohort undergoing VCE for accepted indication at our centre.
