The purpose of this study is to compare the performance and compare the wear characteristics of two polyethylene cup liners, Marathon™ and Enduron™, in the treatment of patients with hip joint disease requiring a total hip replacement. Patients who enter the study will be randomly allocated to one of the polyethylene cup liners, Marathon™ or Enduron™ and will be evaluated at regular intervals using clinical and x-ray assessments.
The purpose of the study is to determine whether crosslinked Marathon and standard Enduron polyethylene liners show differences in survivorship due to wear-related revisions at minimum 14-year follow-up and every 5 years after.
Through this study, we intend to describe the profile of marathon and half marathon runners older than 70 years old, in terms of medical, social and psychological characteristics. First, in order to acquire a better knowledge of these aged runners: who they are; on a medical, social and psychological point of view; to figure out their motivations; to assess the impact on their life, their health and aging process. Then, in order to be able to offer them a better medical care,...
In Quebec, thousands of workers are concomitantly exposed to heat and chemical compounds. Exposure to heat induces physiological responses that help maintaining a stable body temperature. Those changes can affect organ functions implicated in absorption and metabolism. According to literature, those changes could lead to increased concentrations of chemical compounds in the body and their toxicity. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the pulmonary absorption and tox...
This randomized phase III trial studies Tokyo-172 strain bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) solution with or without a vaccination using Tokyo-172 strain BCG to see how well it works compared with TICE BCG solution in treating patients with bladder cancer that has not spread to muscle. BCG is a non-infectious bacteria that when instilled into the bladder may stimulate the immune system to fight bladder cancer. Giving different versions of BCG with vaccine therapy may prevent bladde...
To determine if pre-race training effects heart damage induced by marathon running.
Using blood testing and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the investigators aim to determine if there are necrotic areas of myocardium in participants who complete a marathon. In addition, the investigators aim to describe the acute and chronic structural abnormalities that occur as a result of endurance training. The study hypothesis is that myocardial necrosis is present in runners completing a marathon competition.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the benefit and tolerability of IQP-AS-119 for reduction of susceptibility to infections and other complaints after extreme physical stress (participation in a marathon).
There is growing evidence to conclude that part of the cascade leading to heatstroke is related to an inflammatory reaction triggered by the heat stress. The reduced ability to sustain heat stress - "heat intolerance" is also attributed to over-expression of inflammatory cytokines. Acclimation to heat improves human sustainability to heat and is a leading protective factor against heat stroke. The investigators hypothesize that the lower stress encountered during the process of...
Acute physiological consequences of ultra-marathon running are still unknown, particularly in women. Some studies have suggested that the proportion of fatigue attributable to peripheral and central mechanisms varies between males and females; however, results are contradictory. The results from the investigators of the present experiment in two studies conducted in 2009 and 2012 showed that: - A large part of fatigue induced by a mountain ultra-marathon could be attribute...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether crosslinked Marathon and standard Enduron polyethylene liners show differences in bone loss around the hip implant.
There is substantial research on the effects of physical exercise on cognitive functions. However, less attention has been paid on the requirements of training intensity and length to enhance cognitive abilities in the elderly. To the investigators knowledge no studies have evaluated the effects of extensive endurance exercise training on cognitive functions by studying elderly marathon runners and bicyclists. On the basis of the scientific literature published so far it is not...
The purpose of this study is to determine if enhanced endothelial arterial distensibility observed with heat therapy translates into improved cardiorespiratory fitness. The following aims are proposed: Aim 1: to determine if chronic heat therapy results in improvements in cardiovascular function. Aim 2: To examine potential mechanism(s) of action of heat therapy in cardiovascular function.
An open label, randomized, controlled, equivalency trial to compare the efficacy of the percutaneous route of administration with the intradermal route of administration of Japanese (Tokyo) 172 BCG, in the prevention of tuberculosis during the first two years of life.
This study evaluates cardiac biomarkers and their association to coronary artery disease in marathon runners.
This study had three aims: 1. To determine the impact of consecutive days of exercise on thermoregulation and cardiovascular strain. 2. To determine the efficacy of a hand cooling device to cool individuals throughout a heat acclimation period. 3. To assess the maintenance of thermoregulatory and cardiovascular adaptations derived from heat acclimation during a 25-day intermittent exercise-heat exposure protocol.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether endomicroscopy can improve the detection of Early Gastric Cancers (EGC).
The objectives of this study are to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the new 6Fr sheath (Glidesheath slender; Terumo, Tokyo,Japan ; GSS) compared with the contemporary 5Fr sheath (Hydrophilic coating sheath from Terumo; Tokyo, Japan (standard of care ; SOC).
The purpose of this study is to assess whether the MMF07 Foot Massager and/ or heat therapy may improve symptoms of restless legs syndrome (RLS). It will also assess the effect of the MMF07 Foot Massager and/ or heat on quality of life and sleep in people affected by RLS. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of four treatment groups; 1. MMF07 Foot Massager device 2. Heat therapy 3. Heat therapy and the MMF07 Foot Massage device 4. Neither heat n...
Lower back pain is one of the most common and most expensive impairments costing time and expense in the work force today. With the effects on cognitive skills and addictive side effects of opioids and other prescription pain killers, there has been increasing interest in alternative medical treatments to relieve pain. Two of these that are commonly used are heat and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). In the present investigation, there are two objectives 1) to...
The overall goal of the project is to develop a feasible, effective and sustainable school-based program to manage anxiety in elementary and middle school students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other special learning needs. There are two phases to this Department of Health and Human Services/Health Resources and Services Administration-funded research. In the first phase, there will be engagement of community partners in the process of developing the adapted intervent...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of acetaminophen extended release caplets to placebo in treating the muscle aching and pain (soreness) that occurs after a marathon.
Study EGL-4104-C-1502 is a phase 2, single-site, open-label, randomized, 2-arm parallel study of Ryanodex for the adjuvant treatment of exertional heat stroke (EHS) administered intravenously (IV), to current standard of care (SOC). SOC for the treatment of EHS is defined as effective body cooling, which should be implemented as quickly as available after diagnosis of exertional heat stroke.
The purpose of the study is to investigate whether long-term heat therapy (i.e. 8 weeks of hot tub 4-5x per week) improves biomarkers of cardiovascular health in young, healthy, able-bodied individuals. Although exercise is a potent means of improving cardiovascular health, many patients are unable to exercise effectively, and thus there is high demand for novel therapies to better manage cardiovascular risk in these patients. If successful, this study will set the groundwork f...
