Among Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) the rupture of the Achilles tendon is the most common. Up today, the mechanical and elastic properties of the Achilles tendon are still unknown, and that both in healthy subjects in pathology. The viscoelastic properties or dynamic mechanical properties are directly related to the tendon of the health status and its elongation capacity. The laboratory UMR Inserm U930 - CNRS ERL 3106 in Tours has developed a non-invasive ultrasonic de...
The symptoms associated with COPD include overproduction of mucus and inflammation in the lungs. Overproduction of mucus results in impaired lung function and it encourages bacterial growth and associated COPD exacerbations. Therefore, a treatment that inhibits mucus overproduction or blocks inflammation could benefit COPD patients. The drug under evaluation in this study, BIO-11006 Inhalation Solution, is a new drug that may inhibit overproduction of mucus and may have impo...
The purpose of this study is to compare the acute effects of different duration and intensity of static stretching exercises on the viscoelastic properties of the hamstring muscle and the knee proprioception.
Mucus clearance is impaired in cystic fibrosis. Inhaled surfactants may reduce adhesive forces between mucus and airway surfaces and improve mucus clearance. This in turn my improve lung health. The investigators propose to measure mucus clearance before and after lucinactant or vehicle administration in patients with cystic fibrosis.
The purpose of this research is to understand the properties of mucus in persons with COPD, specifically Chronic Bronchitis. The investigators hypothesize that those with Chronic Bronchitis have dehydrated mucus, and thus have a harder time coughing it out of their lungs. This leads to a greater vulnerability for lung infection, inflammation and airflow obstruction. Ultimately, the investigators' goal is to understand how mucus dehydration contributes to the progression of C...
The purpose of this study is to help us determine how hormones impact the production of cervical mucus which is a fluid secreted by the opening of the uterus, also called the cervix. During a normal menstrual cycle, cervical mucus changes in response to two hormones that the ovaries make: estrogen and progesterone. Many of the birth control methods women use thicken mucus and make it less likely for sperm to enter the uterus. The goal of this study is to better understand the e...
The purpose of the study is to describe the differences in measurements of viscoelastic tests of coagulation by two different devices in adult trauma patients.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical outcome and safety of flutter mucus clearance devices in elders of geracomium.
The conduit arteries exhibit a viscoelastic behavior. Visco-elasticity is partially regulated by endothelium and contributes to the optimization of the heart-vessel coupling. Aging or high resting heart rate (HR) could altere visco-elastic properties leading to increase stiffness of the conduit arteries, an independent cardiovascular risk factor, and degradation of heart-vessel coupling. Lowering HR with ivabradine could reduce these effects. The objective of this study ...
To determine if PMC viscoelastic coagulation parameters correlate with those generated by a marketed device in adult patients who require hemostasis monitoring or who are at risk of bleeding or thrombotic indications
This is a study to learn more about the common cold from studying the nasal secretions produced during a cold or episode of allergic rhinitis.
This study evaluates 20% n-acetylcysteine (NAC) in the treatment of moderate-to-severe asthma that is complicated by mucus in the airway, as determined by CT imaging. The study is a crossover design, which means that half the study participants will get 20% NAC in the first 14-day treatment period and placebo in the next 14-day treatment period; and the other half will get placebo in the first 14-day treatment period and 20% NAC in the next 14-day treatment period.
The purpose of this study is to determine the beneficial effect of n-acetylcysteine (NAC), an inhaled medication that breaks down mucus, on lung function. NAC is a medication approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of chronic diseases of the respiratory system, including asthma. With CT lung imaging, the investigators seek to identify a subgroup of patients with asthma with a 'mucus' profile. This is a single-arm study which means all participant...
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass surgery (RYGB) ameliorates type 2 diabetes within days after surgery. Studies indicate that the gastric sleeve procedure has comparable effect on type 2 diabetes, but to what extent and how is not fully elucidated. This study investigates the effect of the surgeries on incretin levels, glucose effectiveness and hepatic insulin sensitivity.
Many cystic fibrosis patients die of lung failure caused by repeated lung infections from thick, sticky mucus. Past studies have shown Bronchitol inhalation may help to facilitate the clearance of mucus by altering its rheology and replenishing the airway surface liquid layer in these patients, thereby enhancing the shift of stagnant mucus from the lungs. The study aim is to determine the optimal dose of mannitol to generate clinical improvement in patients with cystic fibros...
Glycemic carbohydrates are associated with metabolic disturbances, such as type II diabetes, due to rapid digestion of starch into glucose. The specific properties of starch within these foods has been studied for the purpose of slowing their digestion rate and improving related physiological outcomes, such as gastric emptying rate. The current study investigated the relationship among starch digestion, gastric emptying rate and satiety in white and brown rice.
This study will prospectively assess the clinical effect of ab‐interno transluminal viscoelastic delivery and trabeculotomy performed using the OMNI Surgical System in combination with Cataract Extraction on intraocular pressure (IOP) and the use of IOP‐lowering medications in patients with mild‐moderate open angle glaucoma (OAG).
The purpose of this study is to investigate how mucus (phlegm or spit) is broken down once it forms in the airways (bronchial tubes) of people with lung disease. This research study will also examine whether blood groups have an effect on lung function or the type of mucus found in the lung. This study is not designed to be a treatment for asthma, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, or other lung disease. It is designed to help the investigators learn more about the causes of airway...
Study will assess the safety and effectiveness of 12 week treatment with the study medication, Bronchitol, in subjects with bronchiectasis (a lung disease where patients have trapped, and often infected, thick, sticky mucus). Past studies have shown Bronchitol inhalation may help to facilitate the clearance of mucus by altering its rheology (making it less thick and sticky), thereby enhancing the shift of stagnant mucus from the lungs. On completion of the double blind phase...
Critically ill and intubated patients on mechanical ventilation (IMV) often present retention of respiratory secretions, increasing the risk of respiratory infections and associated morbidity. Endotracheal suctioning (ETS) is the main strategy to prevent mucus retention, but its effects are limited to the first bronchial bifurcation. Mechanical in-exsufflation devices (MI-E) are a non-invasive chest physiotherapy (CPT) technique that aims to improve mucus clearance in proximal...
No accurate, inexpensive and non-invasive test for gastric cancer screening is currently available. The investigators' recent study identified a1-antitrypsin and other proteins as potential biomarkers of gastric cancer in gastric juice. The aim of this study was to develop a novel non-invasive modality for detecting gastric cancer by measurement of biomarkers in gastric juice.
COPD is a major cause of ill health and death in Australia with 40,000 hospital admissions, and a national cost of $898,000,000 annually. The gold standard treatment of COPD is steroids for inflammation, antibiotics for infection and bronchodilators and oxygen for respiratory failure. However, associated mucus hypersecretion is responsible for much of the inflammation and infection. The use of pharmaceutical agents to assist in the early clearance of the retained mucus has be...
