The goal of this VA demonstration project is to show that the Brain-computer interface (BCI) technology is a clinically practical and important new communication and control option that can improve the lives of veterans with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The project will test four well-supported hypotheses: (1) that people with ALS who find (or will soon find) conventional assistive technology inadequate can and will use a BCI system for important purposes in their daily...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that changing aligners weekly provides similar results to changing aligners every two weeks.
This study compared a plant-based, olive oil diet to the diet recommended by the Prostate Cancer Foundation for weight loss and improvement in some laboratory biomarkers.
There is current evidence that maintaining ICU patient's blood sugar between 4.4-6.1 saves lives. However, this is difficult to do in the ICU and carries risks of lowering the blood sugar too much. In addition, the best way to achieve this control is not known. Many strict nomograms that provide a standardized approach for nurses have been developed and validated, including one here at SMH. However, these nomograms cannot apply to all patients at all times, especially ICU p...
A methodical evaluation of novel sound changing principles in CE-labelled Sonova brand hearing instruments (e.g. Phonak hearing instruments) is intended to be conducted on hearing impaired participants. These sound changing principles are enabled by respective hearing instrument technologies and hearing instrument algorithms. The aim of the study is to investigate and asses strength and weaknesses of these novel sound changing principles in terms of hearing performance to deter...
The Alpha-1 Foundation Research Registry is a confidential database made up of individuals diagnosed with severe alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (Alpha-1) or the carrier state.
hypothesis: changing to Travatan Z therapy increases the tear film break up time of subjects on Xalatan therapy presenting with ocular surface disease.
The purpose of this study is to audit the effects of changing all hemodialysis patients from intravenous to subcutaneous administration of ESA's, to ensure that a cost-saving is achieved and that this does not occur at the expense of anemia control. The dose changes will occur according to usual clinical care of patients and not along a protocol.
The goal for COPD patients in pulmonary rehabilitation programs is to improve the quality of life. COPD is known to be worse at night as are other respiratory problems such as CHF. Saturation is known to get worse nocturnally as well. Furthermore, these COPD rehabilitation patients tend to be older and increasing age is associated with an increase in the incidence of sleep disorders. We suspect that there is an increase in the incidence of sleep disorders in COPD patients. We p...
In this treatment development project, the investigators propose to develop and assess the feasibility and acceptability of a narrative-based video intervention and accompanying workbook (entitled MATTeRS: Medication Assisted Treatments: Telling Real Stories) designed to be used by people in inpatient opioid detoxification. Using the Health Belief Model as a framework, videos will provide information about the uses and outcomes of Medication Assisted Treatments (MATs) compared ...
Subjects that participate in the practical workshop will improve their quality of life and will stay longer in remmision , in compare to the participants that will continue their regular threatment
This randomized controlled trial will compare strategies to reduce the risk of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection and re-hospitalization in MRSA carriers. This trial will provide critical answers about the role of decolonization versus standard-of-care education in preventing MRSA infections in the large group of high risk MRSA-positive patients being discharged from hospitals. Findings could potentially impact best practice for the 1.8 million MRSA ca...
Various studies showed how extent elements not directly linked to the state of the patient were involved in the failures in particular in surgery. That's why it's common to use check list system to avoid human mistakes or any other situation which could impact on the surgery. Here the study 's aim is to assess a tool set up by the Foundation for Oral Rehabilitation ; it's a check list which cover all the treatment phases concerning dental implant surgery.
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether changing from conventional smoking to electronic cigarettes causes changes in conventional lung function parameters, bronchial reactivity, fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO), Carbon monoxide (CO), health effects and smoking behaviour.
This project will work to increase knowledge about the utility of a website for management of chronic pain, Our Whole Lives (OWL). It will do so by examining barriers and facilitators to patient use. In order to gather this information, the investigators will conduct a Science Cafe with 30 individuals (including participants with chronic pain, who have family members with chronic pain or are a stakeholder in the chronic pain community) to gather feedback about how to tailor the...
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of a home-based depression treatment intervention called "Program to Encourage Active, Rewarding Lives (PEARL)". We hypothesize that over a 12-month period, compared to usual care, those receiving the PEARL intervention will show more improvement with their depression, have higher quality of life and function, and use fewer medical services.
The purpose of this study is to determine the value of changing anti-HIV medications in children with progressive HIV disease who have received previous treatment. Plasma viral load (the level of HIV in the blood) is probably most effectively reduced by giving patients anti-HIV drugs which affect the virus at various stages of development. Changing the medications may enhance the results of treatment.

A randomized controlled trial to determine whether changing of gloves by the surgical team during cesarean section may decrease post-operative infectious morbidity and wound complications
PRIMARY: To compare the clinical efficacy of two decision making strategies for initiating or changing antiretroviral therapy: decision making based on current clinical practice alone (i.e., initiating or changing therapy based on CD4 count decline and/or clinical progression) versus decision making based on plasma HIV RNA quantitation in addition to current clinical practice. SECONDARY: To evaluate toxicity, biological markers, and patient management in the two arms. A...
The purpose of this study is to determine the changing patterns of infection caused by Candida species in urban medical centers and its influence on patient outcomes. A retrospective cohort study design will be employed with the main outcome measure being hospital mortality. Secondary outcomes including microbiologic clearance of the infection, duration of hospitalization, and the intensive care unit (ICU) length of stay will also be assessed.
This study is designed to determine the effectiveness of florbetapir (18F) in changing patient management and to evaluate the association between scan status and cognitive decline.
We know that changing lifestyle can prevent type 2 diabetes. The challenge is how to help people changing their lifestyle. We have people in 2 groups: half of them is meeting in grops of 10 persons (interventiongroup), the other ones are just visiting their doctor (controlgroup).
To explore and illuminate the cultural, social, and psychological factors that either facilitate or serve as barriers to behavioral change in angioplasty patients. Through a series of open-ended questions we will explore and build a better understanding of how culturally different patient groups perceive heart disease and the difficulties in changing health behavior. In addition, we hope to better understand and anticipate barriers and issues that participants face in success...
The purpose of this study is to assess efficacy and tolerability of changing to DuoTrav® (Travoprost 0.004%/Timolol 0.5% BAK-free) from prior Xalacom® or Ganfort® fixed combination pharmacotherapy in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension with uncontrolled intraocular pressure (IOP).
