This protocol offers diagnosis and standard medical treatment for various parasitic gastrointestinal infections. Gastrointestinal parasites are either worms (helminths) or one-celled animals called protozoans which live in the human intestines. Often, parasitic infections do not cause illness. In these cases, drug treatment is not indicated, because treatment can have adverse side effects. Patients will be examined for their immune responses, correlation between the number of p...
Recurrent urinary tract infections are quickly becoming a public health obstacle in our aging population. Almost 50% of women have at least one urinary tract infection in their lifetime; following this first infection, there is a 25-35% chance that she will have another infection in the subsequent 3-6 months. With each documented infection, a patient receives anywhere from a three to seven day course of antibiotics for treatment. Repeated courses of antibiotics often lead to th...
With the use of molecular methods new viruses have been detected in respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts of both patients and asymptomatic subjects in recent years. The clinical importance of these viruses has not been adequately studied. The aim of this study is to use molecular methods to detect viruses in upper respiratory tract and gastrointestinal tract of children with acute bronchiolitis, acute gastroenteritis and febrile convulsions and to try to correlate the seve...
Nosocomial infections are infections that occur from the time of 'entry in the hospital up to 48h after discharge. In most developed countries, the incidence of nosocomial infections in children is between 5% and 44% with the predominance of respiratory infections and gastrointestinal infections. Nosocomial infections prolong the time of hospital stay, reduce the effectiveness of treatment, significantly increasing hospital costs. Current measures for prevention of nosocomial i...
Fecal calprotectin is a very sensitive non-invasive inflammation marker in the detection of inflammatory bowel disease and, to a lesser degree, has also proven to be useful in adenomatous polyps, neoplasias, and infectious gastroenteritis. Elevated calprotectin levels can also be found in patients with lesion only in the upper gastrointestinal tract. However, the diagnostic value of calprotectin has never been tested in this setting. The aim of the study is therefore to determi...
External control of capsule endoscopy (CE) by means of an applied magnetic field is a possible way to maneuver the movement of CE in gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and feasibility of magnetic maneuvering of a capsule endoscope in the upper gastrointestinal tract, including the esophagus, stomach and duodenum in healthy subjects.
The purpose of this study is determine whether a vaginal mucosal vaccine given to women with a history of recurrent urinary tract infections can reduce the number of infections occurring in a six-month study period, as compared to placebo treatment.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses light to create pictures of living tissues and has been successfully used to generate high resolution cross-sectional images of tissue in the human eye and skin. OCT systems are now commercially available for eye and skin use, and several clinical reports on the use of OCT in the gastrointestinal tract have been published as well. The purpose of this study is to develop a high-speed noninvasive O...
In this prospective study the function of gastrointestinal tract was assessed using constipation questionnaire (Rome criteria and bowel function index).
Up to date, some clinical trial have evaluated the efficacy and safety of Vitamin D supplementation in children with RRI, with no conclusive information. Therefore, we designed a prospective, single-blind, clinical trial to evaluate whether oral supplementation with vitamin D from October to April reduces the global health burden of recurrent respiratory tract infections in a primary care setting. The primary outcome was evaluated if Vitamin D supplementation during autumn an...
This is a laboratory-based, exploratory study using tissue obtained from our clinical practice. The purpose of this study is to confirm our ability to characterize miR expression in various tissues (proximal and distal esophagus, stomach and duodenum) obtained from the upper gastrointestinal tract in preparation for the study of MiR in patients with Barrett's esophagus and other inflammatory conditions of the upper gastrointestinal tract.
The aim of this non-interventional study is to evaluate the efficacy of a monofilament, mid-term absorbable suture material (Monosyn®) for anastomosis performed in the gastrointestinal tract using the frequency of anastomosis leakage as a primary parameter. Postoperative complication rate, length of hospital stay, costs, time to perform the anastomosis and handling will serve as secondary endpoints. The question is addressed, whether a monofilament suture material is as effe...
The purpose of this study is to identify the substances in cranberry juice that make it effective in reducing urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women.
RSV infections can develop into serious, life threatening conditions among immunocompromised patients. The objective of this study (ADMA 001) is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of RI-001 for the prevention of lower respiratory tract infections in immunocompromised patients identified as being infected with RSV in the upper respiratory tract.
Previous studies have suggested that serum carotenoids may be associated with risk of gastrointestinal tract cancer (GIT cancer), but the results were inconsistent. Thus, we conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate the associations between serum carotenoids and risk of GIT cancer.
Laparoscopic Ultrasound (LUS) is an important part of the pre-treatment evaluation of patients with upper gastrointestinal tract cancer (esophageal, gastric, pancreatic and liver cancer). When a suspect lesion is visualized during LUS a biopsy should be provided in order to differentiate between benign and malignant lesions. A new system for LUS guided biopsy has been developed, but how often these biopsies are clinically relevant (i.e. changing patient management)and how relia...
Observation of the initial Procalcitonin values and the clinical course of consecutively included patients with Acute Respiratory Tract Infections at general medical practices in greater Hannover.
We hypothesize that ivermectin, a drug used to treat parasitic worm infections, interacts with the human innate immune system and that this contributes to its anti-parasitic effects. Participants will donate blood before and after being administered the normal human dose of the drug. We will compare the cell types present in the blood and the chemicals known to influence the human immune system before and after the drug is given, as well as measuring any changes in gene express...
The specific objectives of this investigation are to assess the effectiveness of daily gargling and vitamin D supplementation as preventative measures against incident upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) in students attending McMaster University. Investigators hypothesize that 1. Vitamin D3 supplementation will decrease the incidence of symptomatic upper respiratory tract infections in university students 2. Gargling will decrease the incidence of symptoma...
Primary Objective: 1. Assess the clinical activity defined by response rate of irinotecan and cisplatin in untreated patients with metastatic or unresectable high grade neuroendocrine carcinoma of the gastrointestinal tract. Secondary Objective: 1. To assess the safety profile of irinotecan and cisplatin in untreated patients with metastatic or unresectable high grade neuroendocrine carcinoma of the gastrointestinal tract.
RATIONALE: Vaccines may make the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells. PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to compare the effectiveness of two different vaccines in treating patients who have cancer of the gastrointestinal tract.
The investigators aim to assess the effectiveness of a 7-day compared with a 10-day course of antibiotic treatment for febrile urinary tract infections (UTIs) in children. It is formulated a hypothesis that a 7-day course of antibiotic therapy is equally effective as a 10-day course of therapy and would entail a lower risk of adverse events and better compliance.
This study will determine whether cranberry juice is effective in reducing recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women who have had a UTI within the past year.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate whether LYS228 can be developed for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, tolerability, and safety of BEZ235 alone and in combination with RAD001 to support further development to reduce the incidence of respiratory tract infections (RTIs) in elderly subjects.
