The accurate identification and efficient management of poor responders remains one of the most enigmatic challenges in assisted reproductive technology (ART). The investigators study will compare the letrozole/antagonist protocol to the hMG/antagonist protocol in women who poor responders.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether accelerated BEP chemotherapy is more effective than standard BEP chemotherapy in males with intermediate and poor-risk metastatic germ cell tumours.
In this study we intend to treat patients with chronic hepatitis C of genotype 2 or 3 having characteristics associated with poor treatment response for additional 12 or 24 weeks beyond the standard treatment of PEG-IFN alpha-2b plus ribavirin. The objective of this study is to compare the efficacy of a treatment extension of 12 versus 24 weeks in patients with HCV-genotypes 2 and 3 who are treated with 1.5 µg/kg PEG-IFN alpha-2b and 800-1400 mg ribavirin (standard dose) for ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and concentrated platelet-poor plasma (PPPc) can reduce the duration of post-operative air leak after lobectomy for lung tumours.
The role of sleep in patients admitted to the intensive care unit is an emerging field of research. There have been studies that show patients in the ICU have poor sleep including sleep fragmentation, multiple arousals, decreased stage 3 sleep and reduced REM sleep (1, 2, 3). Causes of poor sleep in the ICU include severity of illness, abnormal light exposure, and frequent arousals for medical care. Not only does poor sleep contribute to reduced cognitive function and delirium,...
Gemcitabine and cisplatin represent the standard first-line chemotherapy in metastatic bladder carcinoma. This regimen has replaced in most centers the MVAC combination showing a similar efficacy but less toxicity. Almost all responding patients relapse within the first year, with a median survival of 12 months. Prognosis is very poor in patients who display progressive disease after receiving combination cisplatin-based chemotherapy. No standard has yet been establishe...
In this phase II trial, we will evaluate the weekly schedule of topotecan in the first-line treatment of elderly and/or poor performance status patients with extensive stage small cell lung cancer. Patients eligible for this trial will be those considered poor candidates for standard combination chemotherapy or other investigational regimens
The aim of this study is to evaluate if the intracoronary infusion of autologous bone-marrow derived CD133+ endothelial precursor cells is able to promote neovascularization and to improve myocardial perfusion and contractility in patients with refractory coronary heart disease, characterized by poor response to standard coronary interventions, severe impairment of the quality of life, and poor prognosis.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of polestriding (walking with poles) and traditional walking on physical endurance in subjects with poor circulation in their legs. Another goal is to evaluate the effectiveness of a walking program in increasing the amount of oxygen in the calf muscles and therefore improving overall physical activity and quality of life.
RATIONALE: Video-assisted surgery followed by radiation therapy may be an effective treatment in patients whose poor heart and lung function make them high risk for standard surgery. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of video-assisted surgery followed by radiation therapy in treating patients with stage I non-small cell lung cancer and poor heart and lung function.
This purpose of this study is to understand the differences between people who have a good response to deferasirox (exjade) compared to people who have a poor response to this medication when used for transfusion-dependent iron overload. The hypothesis is that patients with poor responses have physiologic barriers to deferasirox that may include absorption, pharmacokinetics of drug metabolism, hepatic clearance and/or genetic factors.
Consistent adherence to antiretroviral therapy is necessary for treatment success. People with poor health literacy skills experience considerable difficulty adhering to their medications. Effective strategies for improving adherence in patients with poor health literacy must be tailored to achieve optimal adherence and therefore viral suppression. This proposal requests support to conduct a randomized clinical trial of a theory-based HIV treatment adherence intervention tailor...
Failure to respond to controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) is still a major concern in assisted reproduction and there is no consensus on the ovarian stimulation choice regime for poor responders. Aim: To evaluate and compare the efficacy of a microdose GnRH agonist flare (MF) and a GnRH antagonist/letrozole (A/L) protocols in poor responders undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Methods: One hundred eighty ...
The purpose of this study is to understand how the components of osteoarthritic knee joint fluid (synovial fluid) change after lavage treatment with platelet poor plasma. Additionally, the study participants will complete outcome questionnaire surveys before and after the treatment in conjunction with when synovial fluid is removed from the knee (2, 4, and 6 weeks after lavage). This data will help determine if the treatment of an osteoarthritic knee joint with platelet poor pl...
This is a randomized controlled trial of couples with a history of poor embryo quality undergoing a repeat in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle for unexplained infertility. Couples will be randomized to sperm selection by the clinical standard of centrifugation and density-gradient processing compared to the microfluidic sperm sorting chip.
Asthma has an especially great impact on poor urban children and their families. In addition to higher asthma prevalence and morbidity, those in low SES urban areas are at risk for low health literacy. Low health literacy is associated with poorer asthma outcomes. The provision of a written asthma action plan has been shown to help with asthma management and to reduce hospitalizations and ER visits. Poor urban families who may have low literacy may need an alternative asthma...
The main purpose of this study is to examine Taiwanese subjects identified as CYP2C19 poor and extensive metabolizers while taking single and multiple dosing a rosuvastatin calcium.
The aim of this study is to assess the role of AMH in prediction of poor ovarian response as well as the relation between ESR2 (+1730G>A) (rs4986938), FSHR p.Thr307Ala (c.919A>G, rs6165) and FSHR p.Asn680Ser (c.2039A>G, rs6166) SNPs and the poor response in Egyptian women undergoing IVF procedure. Discovering the genetic variants associated with ovarian response is an important step towards individualized pharmacogenetic protocols of ovarian stimulation.
Background: - Severe aplastic anemia is a rare and serious blood disorder. It happens when the immune system starts to attack the bone marrow cells. This causes the bone marrow to stop making red blood cells, platelets, and white blood cells. Standard treatment for this disease is horse-ATG and cyclosporine, which suppress the immune system and stop it from attacking the bone marrow. However, this treatment does not work in all people. Some pe...
The purpose of the study is to determine the overall response rate to treatment with AG013736 in patients with poor prognosis of AML or MDS.
Most treatment-seeking smokers will fail in their attempts to quit smoking in the early days and weeks of quitting. Poor sleep (e.g., short duration) is an overlooked, but important nicotine withdrawal symptom that can affect up to 80% of treatment seeking smokers and predicts relapse. Addressing sleep deficits could promote cessation, particularly in smokers who may be vulnerable to poor sleep in one or more sleep metrics even before quitting. This study will address this conc...
In this study the suitability of two -sequential and single step- commercially available culture media from the same brand was compared. The aim of such study is to verify whether is possible to improve the efficiency of infertility treatments in those couples who usually have a high cycle cancellation rate, such as poor responder patients and severe male infertility. The study population is composed of couples attending the fertility clinic: to this purpose all those couples a...
There is a rising incidence of kidney failure in the US, with poor outcomes and high cost. End-stage renal disease (ESRD) affects almost 375,000 individuals in the US at a cost of more than $14 billion per year. Despite advances in dialysis and transplantation therapies, kidney failure leads to poor outcomes, poor prognosis and high health care costs. Malnutrition and the underlying systemic inflammatory response developed during the course of chronic kidney disease, worsen dur...
Various definitions of poor dentition in older adults has been linked with inadequate intake of nutrients and poor diet quality. This study aims to look at the associations between poor dentition as defined by the composition of functional tooth units, and dietary intake of nutrients in community dwelling older men.
Response to psoriasis treatment is variable in large part because of poor adherence treatments. Studies using electronic monitors have assessed adherence to topical and injectable psoriasis treatments and to biologics, yielding critically important insights. Adherence to oral psoriasis treatments is not as well characterized but is also critical, as the therapeutic windows for these treatments are narrower than for other psoriasis treatment options. The proposed study wi...
