The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of LX211 as therapy in subjects with active non-infectious uveitis
The IRIS™ Registry (Intelligent Research in Sight) is the nation's first comprehensive eye disease clinical registry. The American Academy of Ophthalmology is developing it as part of the profession's shared goal of continual improvement in the delivery of eye care.The IRIS Registry will be a centralized system for ophthalmology practices to promote practice innovations and achieve clinical excellence.
To make intravenous (IV) ganciclovir available to immunocompromised patients with life-threatening or sight-threatening Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, where the symptoms of the disease are too severe to allow admission to a controlled clinical study of ganciclovir therapy. To determine the safety and tolerance of 2 - 3 weeks induction course of ganciclovir IV followed by a maintenance course of ganciclovir IV for an indefinite duration. To tabulate the patient's clinical resp...
Identify one or more flat bread mixes that produce a reduction in positive incremental area under the curve (iAUC) of post-prandial glucose relative to the control product.
The aim of this study is calibrate (adjust and tune) the CAS FORE-SIGHT Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) monitor when used to measure the tissue oxygen saturation of internal organs (StO2). This is a measure of the amount of oxygen carried by the blood within the internal organs. In addition the study will assess the degree of similarities between StO2 and mean mixed venous oxygen saturation - a measure of the amount of oxygen carried in the blood returning to the heart.
We sight to evaluate whether patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) have more epicardial fat than patients without CAD, which would suggest that epicardial fat may be more than an “innocent bystander” and be actively involved in the disease process. Its role as a modulator of vascular response and myocardial function could potentially lead to new areas of cardiac research. We also sight to evaluate whether epicardial fat from patients with CAD releases more adipokine...
Growth hormone (GH) induces fat metabolism. The mechanisms underlying the fat metabolizing effects of GH remain elusive. However, it is known that insulin suppresses fat metabolism, and GH inhibits the expression of certain insulin-dependent signaling proteins. We therefore hypothesize that the fat metabolizing effects of GH depend on abrogation of insulin-dependent signaling pathways. In order to investigate the fat metabolizing effects of GH, we'll analyze consecutive ...
Hypertension is common side effect of Cushing Syndrome (CS): in patients with endogenous CS and those treated with glucocorticosteroids (GCs). The impact of the intravenous GCs therapy on blood pressure (BP) remains unclear. According to the European Group On Graves' Orbitopathy (EUGOGO), patients with active, severely symptomatic and sight-threatening Graves' orbitopathy (GO) should be treated with high dose intravenous methylprednisolone (IVMP) pulses. There are, however, rep...
Glaucoma is an eye disease that leads to damage of the optic nerve, visual field loss and can progress to blindness. Traditionally, glaucoma and its treatment have been closely linked to intraocular pressures. In normal tension glaucoma, damage to the optic nerve occurs without any increase in intraocular pressure. Normal tension glaucoma most often occurs in the elderly and can lead to loss of sight and significant disability. Subjects with progressive visual field loss are of...
Diabetic retinopathy(DR) is a sight threatening condition that occurs in persons with diabetes. DR arises as a consequence of damage to the retinal blood vessels and is related to the high and fluctuating sugar levels in the blood stream. An eye with DR will have abnormal appearing retinal blood vessels which become engorged and dilated, leaky and fragile or undergo closure. The net result is a picture of haemorrhage and or ischaemia (lack of blood supply). A particular feature...
To this study and identify the sequence of alterations occurring in the chorioretinal interface during progression of AMD from "dry" AMD to sight-threatening chorioretinal neovascularization (CNV).
This study will determine whether blood biomarker changes predict sight-saving benefits of exercise.
Characterize potential biomarkers of sight-threatening eye diseases based on the information acquired in clinical practice at CEC, AIBILI
The alterations of coagulation and fibrinolysis parameters have been described in patients with endogenous Cushing's syndrome (CS) and those treated with glucocorticosteroids (GCs). The change in hemostatic process is associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolic events (VTE) and pulmonary embolism (PE). Anticoagulation prophylaxis reduces thromboembolic complications in endogenous and exogenous hypercortisolism. The impact of the intravenous GCs therapy on hyperco...
Frequently glaucoma is not controlled with clinical treatment ("eyedrops") or laser surgery to control your eye pressure. If this raised pressure is sustained over a long period of time it can lead to permanent damage to the optic nerve (glaucoma) and in severe cases it can result in blindness. You also have cataracts, an opacification of the natural lens inside the eye that is impairing your vision. To prevent further vision loss due to glaucoma, your doctor has recommended gl...
Growth hormone (GH) is essential for longitudinal bone growth and somatic development. These protein anabolic effects require sufficient nutritional supply. During fasting and caloric restriction GH predominantly promotes fat metabolism. GH counteracts the effect of insulin in many tissues, of which insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in skeletal muscle has been most extensively studied. Substrate competition between elevated free fatty acids and glucose is suggested as a mechan...
The goal of this project is the development of an EEG-cap (min. 21 electrodes) with user-friendly active dry electrodes that meets the expectations of the users regarding comfort and esthetics, without losing sight of the functional and technical demands for recording high quality EEG signals. The purpose is to use the EEG-cap to investigate clinical neurological disorders (e.g. epilepsy). The EEG-cap could also be used at home so that hospital admission in the EMU can be avoid...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of HuMax-CD20 in patients with active Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Achromatopsia is a recessively inherited condition characterised by a lack of cone photoreceptor function resulting in impairment of colour vision and visual acuity, central scotoma often with eccentric fixation, disabling hypersensitivity to light (photophobia) and involuntary eye movements (pendular nystagmus). Children with CNGB3-related achromatopsia have profound sight impairment from birth or early infancy. The condition is currently untreatable, but there is a real poss...
A highly desired result during carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is the ability to predict and warn the surgeon if the brain is at risk of damage during the period of time that the carotid artery is cross-clamped for surgical repair of the vessel narrowing. A number of approaches for cerebral monitoring have been developed, including EEG, cerebral oximetry, and measurement of arterial to jugular venous concentration differences of oxygen, glucose or lactate. This study will utilize ...
The purpose of this study is to test the belief that specific areas of the brain are connected differently in blind patients than patients with sight. In addition, the study will examine the different anatomical connections between brain areas of patients who became blind early in life versus patients who became blind later.
The purpose of the ACTIVE study was to test if cognitive training interventions could maintain functional independence in elders by improving basic mental abilities, with follow-up assessments through five years.
The Prostate Active Surveillance Study (PASS) is a research study for men who have chosen active surveillance as a management plan for their prostate cancer. Active surveillance is defined as close monitoring of prostate cancer with the offer of treatment if there are changes in test results. This study seeks to discover markers that will identify cancers that are more aggressive from those tumors that grow slowly.
Ectasia after refractive surgery is a relatively rare complication which can lead to sight-threatening complications if not detected and treated in time. It is important to continue our quest to improve our methods of identifying absolute and relative risk factors of ectasia following various keratorefractive surgical procedures.
