Aesthetic appearance of repaired incisions is very important to surgical patients. It has been stated that if the edges of a wound are closed in such a manner that will result in eversion, or pouting of the edges that the end cosmetic result will be superior when compared to wound edges that are simply approximated. The purpose of this study is to compare cosmetic outcomes of incisions that are closed with everted edges to those in which the edges are simply approximated.
This is a Phase 1 clinical trial examining the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of escalating doses of the vascular disrupting agent NPI-2358 in patients with refractory solid tumors or lymphoma. The formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) is an important component of tumor growth and vascular disrupting agents are intended to target the differences between these tumor blood vessels and the blood vessels in normal tissues. NPI-2358 has also been seen to dire...
This study examines the effectiveness and appropriateness of a written physical activity policy implemented in licensed centre-based childcare on the physical activity levels of toddlers (1-2) and preschoolers (3-5 years). Half of the childcare centres will adopt the physical activity policy while the other half will continue with their typical daily programming and care. It is hypothesized that children enrolled in childcare centres that adopt the policy will display increased...
This is a clinical trial examining the vascular disrupting agent NPI-2358 combined with docetaxel in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) is an important component of tumor growth, vascular disrupting agents are intended to target the differences between these tumor blood vessels and the blood vessels in normal tissues.
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...
This pilot study on the impact of a non-commercialism policy in Seattle schools will assess and evaluate obesity-related health outcomes of a real-life policy decision, recently voted on and adopted by the Seattle School Board. The policy reduces the exposure to advertising and other marketing pressures, including those from commercial food vendors.
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.
In a cluster randomized design it will be investigated whether teaching local leaders how to implement active pregnancy policy results in less sickness absence among their pregnant employees. Further it will be investigated to what extent Active pregnancy policy is implemented at the departments and whether it results in higher sense of security and wellbeing among the pregnant employee. Finally the cost and benefits of the intervention will be analyzed.
This study investigates the effectiveness of parathyroid hormone (PTH) in combination with alendronate, a standard treatment for osteoporosis that blocks or reduces bone loss. We are using alendronate because it may help protect patients against any possible harmful effects of PTH in cortical bone such as the long bones or hip. We are testing two different treatment schedules of PTH-one in which we give PTH daily and one in which we give PTH for 3 out of every 6 months in a cyc...
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...
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...
Acromegaly is a rare disorder characterized by excessive production of growth hormone most often by a pituitary adenoma. A pituitary adenoma is a tumor, almost always benign or non-cancerous, that grows on the pituitary, a small gland located at the base of the brain. Treatment of acromegaly usually involves surgery, medication, or radiation, but can involve a combination of these three treatments. Subjects for this study will be recruited if they are: 1. Adults, male...
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...
Growth hormone and gonadotropin deficiency after brain injury (TBI, ischemic stroke, SAH): the effects of hormone replacement on cognition, quality of life and body composition Randomized, controlled, 3 arm (group 2: double-blind; groups 1 and 3: open), multi-center, pilot study (Phase II)
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...
The purpose of this study is to examine the short-term effects of two different doses of growth hormone on the brain's secretion of growth hormone and the body's glucose metabolism. We hypothesize that growth hormone administration will alter the body's endogenous pulsatile growth hormone secretion and that higher dose growth hormone may decrease insulin sensitivity.
The objectives of this policy-related survey are as follows: i. to study updated trend and prevalence on secondhand smoke, smoking-attributed health effects, cessation services; ii. to investigate the level of public support on current and future tobacco control measures and taxation policies; iii. to address the timely impacts of smoke-free policies, substantiate public support on further tobacco control measures and assist Hong Kong Council On Smoking and Health (COSH) in sh...
The investigators' hypothesis is that restriction of circulating fluids in comparison to a liberal fluid administration policy would lead to a reduction of allogenic red blood cells exposure in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) for primary coronary artery bypass graft supported by reinfusion of washed shed blood from thoracic cavities.
To evaluate specific markers of cardiovascular risk before and after growth hormone replacement therapy in a population of growth hormone deficient adults, as compared to an age, gender, and BMI-matched healthy population.
PP1- The purpose of this study is to determine whether giving more of the hormone produced by everyone called growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) can improve heart function in individuals with congestive heart failure. You must be 50 years old or older, have a diagnosis of congestive heart failure, and have a high likelihood of having lower than normal growth hormone effect. GHRH is approved by the US FDA for treatment in children with growth hormone deficiency because GHR...
This study performs assessments of pituitary functions by basal hormone levels in the acute phase after TBI and/or SAH followed by detailed endocrine tests (insulin-induced hypoglycemia or growth hormone releasing hormone-arginine-corticotropin releasing hormone-leuteinizing hormone releasing hormone [GHRH-arginine-CRH-LHRH] test) after 4 and 12 months.
An Epidemiological Study of Subjects With Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura to Evaluate the Relationship Between Platelet Counts, Endogenous Thrombopoietin Levels, Endogenous Anti-Thrombopoietin Antibodies, and Selected Autoimmune Markers
This study involves the collection of blood samples from patients with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) to evaluate the relationship between platelet counts, blood levels of a hormone called thrombopoietin that controls platelet production by the bone marrow, and blood levels of antibodies against thrombopoietin that could interfere with the action of this hormone. Blood samples will also be stored if separately agreed to by the patient for analysis of genes that might af...
Background: - Cushing s disease can be caused by a tumor of the pituitary gland, a small gland about the size of a pea located at the base of the brain. These tumors produce high levels of hormones, which cause obesity, diabetes, and growth problems. The cure for this type of Cushing s disease is to have surgery that removes the tumor but leaves the pituitary gland alone. Currently, magnetic resonance imaging scans are the best way to find...
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine whether release of endogenous growth hormone (GH)-releasing hormone is involved in GH responses to clonidine, pyridostigmine, levodopa, arginine, GH-releasing peptide, insulin-induced hypoglycemia, and exercise in patients with acromegaly. II. Determine whether endogenous GH-releasing hormone influences the maintenance of GH hypersecretion.
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.
