A Comparison of mNT-BBAVF and BCAVF in Hemodialysis Patients

A well-functioning vascular access is essential for effective hemodialysis. The native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the preferred vascular access because of the lower thrombosis and infection risks compared to either synthetic arteriovenous grafts or central venous catheters. Brachiocephalic arteriovenous fistula (BCAVF) and transposed brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula (T-BBAVF) are recommended when there is either a primary failure or no suitable vessels for the forearm f...

SleepHelsinki! CIRCADIAN SLEEP REGULATION IN ADOLESCENCE

Adolescence associates with alterations in sleep-wake organization, such as later circadian phase preference. Simultaneously external pressures, such as evening-driven social activities increase. These may lead to delayed sleep phase, which may cause serious problems for waking up at socially accepted times, and absenteeism from the school may follow. This project aims at tracking risk factors for later circadian regulation problems, characterizing interconnections of biologica...

AC6 Gene Transfer for Congestive Heart Failure

Dr. H. Kirk Hammond and associates are conducting a research study to find out 1) whether gene transfer using an agent called Ad5.hAC6 (adenovirus-5 encoding human adenylyl cyclase type 6) can be given safely to patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) and 2) whether this agent may be of benefit in heart failure.
