The investigators want to compare the efficacy of plasma exchange treatment with using two different citrates ( 4% and 15% ) as anticoagulants in plasma exchange treatment. The efficacy of plasma exchange treatment is better with using 15% trisodium citrate as anticoagulant during the plasma exchange procedure.
The results found in the literature do not allow to define objectively the indications respective for a one-step or a two-step exchange of prosthetic joint. Some criteria could help to decide for one-step exchange or two-step exchange: bacteria is/are identified, profile of the bacteria, anesthetic difficulties,.. A puncture could allow to identify the bacteria involved in the prosthetic joint infection (PJI) and an antibiotherapy for a few days can be given to the patient in ...

This study will evaluate how the CHR is used and its clinical and financial impact to better understand the CHR's value, and to identify opportunities to enhance the sys...
Chronic infection after total joint arthroplasty generally requires implant exchange. Two stage exchange is considered as the gold standard procedure. However, some authors suggest that one stage exchange may be as effective. No consensus exists in the current literature. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the cost of both strategies in comparison to their success rate.
This is a multicentric, prospective, observational study on the use of Cetrotide to control the endogenous gonadotrophin levels in Gonal-f stimulated ART treatment cycles in the Asia-Pacific region. The study plans to enrol approximately 1800-2000 subjects over a 9-month period at each participating centre. This observational study is initiated to collect information on the use of Cetrotide (GnRH antagonist) in ART cycles in routine practice across the Asia-Pacific region. The...
This was an observational, prospective, multicentric study conducted in a cohort of subjects with type 2 diabetes and prescribed with Glucophage XR therapy from hospitals or clinics in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore. Glucophage XR is being used in the Asia Pacific region for the treatment of subjects with type 2 diabetes. This study was designed to provide information on the day to-day experience of using Glucophage XR in the management of subj...
This is a study to compare two different, but normally, used methods of colonoscopy in patients undergoing colonoscopy without sedation. There will be two arms in this study: WE (water exchange) control, and WE (water exchange) plus cap (placed at tip of the colonoscope). The patient will prepare himself/herself for the colonoscopy as per normal instructions and he/she will be given the information for the study at that time so that he/she can make a decision to participate in ...
The purpose of this study is to understand the utilization patterns of doripenem in Asia Pacific, including the profile of the patients treated with carbapenems.
This research trial studies how well Oncology Research Information Exchange Network (ORIEN) works in improving genetic screening rate in patients with cancer. Implementation of Progeny Genetic Pedigree and Family History Questionnaire software across all ORIEN member institutions may add value and utility for recognizing and caring for patients with an inherited susceptibility to cancer.
Since the infectious aetiology of AECOPD has been suggested to vary according to geographical region, the primary purpose of this study (which will be conducted in several countries in Asia Pacific) is to evaluate the occurrence of bacterial and viral pathogens in the sputum of stable COPD patients and at the time of AECOPD. Given the increasing and projected burden of COPD in the Asia Pacific region, this study will also evaluate the frequency, severity and duration of AECOPD,...
Rituximab (a monoclonal antibody raised against CD20) is used to treat various immune disorders. In some cases such as treatment of humoral acute rejection of renal transplant, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, vasculitis or cryoglobulinemia, rituximab is often associated with plasma exchange. The pharmacokinetic of the rituximab can be affected by plasma exchange but the knowledge is poor in this matter. The aim of the study is to explore the influence of plasma exchange o...
This study will determine the prevalence of HIV-related neurological disorders in the countries of the Asia-Pacific Region.
Crescentic IgA nephropathy (CreIgAN) has a poor prognosis despite aggressive immunosuppressive therapy. The efficacy of plasma exchange (PE) in CreIgAN is not well defined. This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of plasma exchange as adjunctive therapy for severe crescentic IgA nephropathy compared to pulse methylprednisolone on a background of oral prednisolone and cyclophosphamide in prevent kidney failure.
For thousands of years people in the South Pacific have used Atuna racemosa extract as a topical anti-inflammatory. We, the researchers at the Mayo Clinic, have shown this extract to also have antibacterial properties. While this extract has been used for decades in the South Pacific, a controlled clinical trial to evaluate toxicity has never been performed.
The Primary objective of this registry is to assess the control of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) over one year in patients attending clinical or specialized practices. The Secondary objectives are: - To describe key demographics and treatment features in AF patients visiting cardiologists in various countries in Asia-Pacific. - To establish correlation between control of AF and clinical outcomes. - To establish correlation between treatment strategies and AF ...
Our objective is to develop intuitive, meaningful and ergonomically efficient informative displays specific to the user's domain. Specifically we aim to enhance and refine the display prototype of ABG information to include gas-exchange, acid-base balance, lung mechanics, ventilation, oxygenation, and metabolism information.
The current study aimed to test a culturally tailored program designed to help Pacific Islanders (PIs) between the ages of 18 and 30 quit smoking cigarettes by using a randomized controlled trial design with one intervention group and one control group.
This study will determine if gas can pass between the environment and the middle ear by way of the eardrum. This route of gas exchange was observed in animals but has not been studied in humans. If gas exchange across the eardrum is documented and the rate is sufficiently high, this can help explain certain past observations such as why middle ear pressure does not change very much in some children and adults when they have a cold or flu. The investigators also expect that th...
The Northwest Coalition for Adolescent Health (NWCAH) replicated the Teen Outreach Program (TOP) in five states across the pacific northwest including Idaho, Alaska, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. The purpose of this study is to measure: at the end of the program year, were TOP students less likely than control group students to report ever being pregnant or causing someone to be pregnant?
