Breath Test for Chemicals (Volatile Organic Compounds)

Background: - Some types of cancer, like cancer of the esophagus, are difficult to detect at an early stage. A possible detection method involves collecting breath samples to look for chemicals that may be signs of cancer. However, more research is needed to determine how different chemicals appear in different breath samples. This study will involve healthy volunteers. Objectives: - To study chemicals appearing in breath samples of healthy volunteers. Eligibili...

Adjunctive Supplementation of Antioxidants (Vitamins E + C) Plus Omega-3 Fatty Acids

This research study helps to demonstrate that adding vitamins and fats (nutritional supplements) to a diet will help reduce body weight and improve the lipid profile. This will be done by examining the body weight and chemicals in the blood. The chemicals are the result of the brain using the fat that subjects eat in their diet. Some medications may also change the amount of these chemicals in a person’s blood.

Microbial Community Composition and Metabolism in Cystic Fibrosis

Scientist have begun to realize that many types of bacteria often live together as a complex community, and the investigators wish to apply that idea to the bacteria in the respiratory system of people with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). It is possible that the survival of the many millions of bacteria in the CF lung depends on the production of special chemicals that might be made only by very few types of bacteria. If that is true, medicines that interfere with those chemicals could t...

Taking Action to Thrive - A Healthy Lifestyle Intervention Pilot Study

There have been some preliminary studies, primarily in animals, that suggest that exposure to some of the chemicals in our everyday environment, such as the chemicals found in plastics, may cause weight gain. It is not clear whether this also happens in humans, or whether decreasing exposure to these chemicals can improve success with weight loss when people adopt healthy lifestyle changes. The THRIVE Study is a 4-week group healthy lifestyle education program that is designed...

Penn Uterine Transplantation for Uterine Factor Infertility Trial

In the Penn UNTIL trial, the investigators propose to successfully achieve live birth after uterus transplantation from deceased donors. The investigators plan to transplant five women who will ultimately undergo embryo transfer, pregnancy, delivery, a...

Biomarkers for Obstructive Sleep Apnea

The purpose of the study is to: - recruit subjects with untreated sleep apnea; assess overnight changes in their blood and urine chemicals - review the overnight changes in blood and urine chemicals after they have been treated for sleep apnea - assess the overnight changes in blood and urine chemicals in healthy individuals with no sleep problems - compare the amount of fat in the belly using a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner...

CSC OnDemand: An Innovative Online Learning Platform for Implementing Coordinated Specialty Care

Role of Leukotrienes and Adenosine in Hyperpnea-induced Bronchospasm

This research is being conducted to help us better understand what causes exercise induced asthma. The investigators hypothesize that two types of chemicals, cysteinyl leukotrienes and adenosine, play an important role. The investigators will be measuring these chemicals in the exhaled breath of volunteers with exercise induced asthma as they undergo a test to mimic exercise induced asthma. The investigators will determine how the levels of these chemicals change in associat...

Study of Inflammation and Oxidative Stress in Persons Undergoing Dialysis

Little is known about how some drugs affect inflammation or clotting factors in people receiving hemodialysis. It is not yet known if these drugs help prevent heart damage as they do in people not undergoing hemodialysis or whether they could increase the risk of heart problems. The purpose of the study is to measure certain chemicals in the blood and see how those chemicals may change during hemodialysis when certain drugs are given.

Emergency Department-Initiated Palliative Care

This is a two-arm, multi-site randomized controlled trial of 1,350 older adults (65+ years) with either advanced cancer (defined as metastatic solid tumor) or end-stage organ failure (New York Heart Association Class IV Heart Failure, End Stage Renal Disease defined as GFR < 15 ml/min/m2; or oxygen-dependent chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)) who present to the Emergency Department (ED), along with 675 of their informal caregivers, to compare nurse-led telephonic cas...

Penn State Hershey Sitting and Health Study

The purpose of this study is to: (a) evaluate if a desk-based elliptical device can help employees to increase their daily physical activity without compromising work productivity; and (b) evaluate the effects of different types of incentives for pedaling the desk-based elliptical device on employees' pedaling quantity over a one-month intervention period.

A Smartphone App to Improve Physical Activity

The purpose of this study is to develop, test, and optimize a physical activity (PA)-tracking smartphone app and specialty features, which are designed to facilitate older adults' PA by targeting common barriers in this population. For example, one feature sends messages throughout the day about the good things about growing older to combat negative views about aging which has been linked to decreased PA. Participants will include older adult smartphone users who are between th...

Risperidone (Risperdal) Augmentation in Depressed Partial Responders to SRI Treatment

This is a study of the chemistry of depression in people who are taking an antidepressant but it is not working well. The changes in brain chemicals that occur when an SSRI type antidepressant is supplemented with risperidone (Risperdal®) will be studied. Spinal fluid is used to measure chemical levels of dopamine, serotonin, and other chemicals thought to be involved in depression. The study has potential to help understand and treat depression.

The purpose of this study is to find out how chemicals in the blood of patients with chronic kidney disease affect how medications are removed from the body. The patient will take one dose of three different drugs, one on each week, for a total of three single doses. The investigators want to find out if these three different medications are affected in different ways by the chemicals in the blood of patients with kidney disease.

Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Pediatric Anxiety and Depression in Primary Care

Breath for Better Health Study

Breath analysis is becoming of increasing interest to researchers throughout the world for disease identification and monitoring. It is known that small chemicals dissolved in the blood can pass through the blood/air barrier within the lungs and be exhaled in normal breath, with many of these chemicals being potential biomarkers for a broad range of diseases. These specific biomarkers need to be identified so that gas analysis instruments and sensors can be designed to detect t...
