The 'rising tide' of antimicrobial resistance is a source of concern across most infectious diseases. In the UK, for example, 6.8% of the ~8,500 tuberculosis patients seen in 2012 were resistant to the cheap and effective first-line drug isoniazid. It is of great importance to prevent the loss of current anti-tuberculosis drugs and preventing the spread of resistance by treating such patients as well as possible. Currently, guidance on the best treatments for isoniazid resista...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new disposable supra-glottic airway device, the i-gel airway (Intersurgical Ltd., Wokingham, England). We propose to test its ease of insertion, position within the airway, drain tube patency and anatomic sealing properties during mechanical ventilation in non-obese anesthetized patients undergoing elective general surgery. The study device will be compared to the current standard in the industry, the LMA Unique.
An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a dilation of the aorta, defined as an aortic diameter of ≥3cm. It is a significant cause of death internationally and in England each year causes c.4,000 deaths with 8,000 patients undergoing preventative surgery. AAA are often asymptomatic and there is a latent period between development and rupture. This represents an opportunity to screen by ultrasound which has been shown in trials to reduce AAA related mortality by half. In E...
Smoking during pregnancy is the single most preventable cause of illness and death among mothers and infants. Because of the stigma associated with tobacco use during pregnancy, pregnant women are less likely to disclose their smoking status to doctors or study researchers. This study will evaluate the use of a new biomarker of nicotine metabolism to estimate tobacco use in a group of pregnant women who participated in the New England Smoking Cessation and Reduction in Pregnanc...
RATIONALE: Gathering information about genetic and environmental factors from patients with lung cancer and their partners and first-degree relatives may help doctors learn more about the disease. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is looking at the patterns, causes, and control of disease in patients with lung cancer in the North Trent (England) region.
This trial aims to reduce unnecessary prescription of antibiotics by general practitioners (GPs) in England. Unnecessary prescriptions are defined as those that do not improve patient health outcomes. The intervention is to send GPs a letter from the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) that gives feedback on their practice's prescribing levels. Specifically, GPs in practices whose prescribing has increase by more than 4% over the past year will receive a letter stating that "The great ...
Background: - Bladder cancer often recurs after treatment and patient survival varies greatly. - More knowledge is needed about factors that can help identify patients who are at greater risk of disease recurrence and progression to minimize the need for screening and to help guide treatment. - The New England Study of Environment and Health (NESEH), conducted by the departments of health in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, the Dartmouth Medica...
HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is the use of anti-HIV medicines by HIV negative people in order to prevent them from becoming HIV positive if exposed to HIV. Currently, the combination drug containing tenofovir and emtricitabine is licensed in Europe for use as HIV PrEP. We know from previous studies worldwide that this combination drug is very good at reducing the risk of HIV infection and several countries have implemented PrEP programmes to provide PrEP to individuals ...
In Scotland tobacco-related illnesses account for in excess of 56,000 hospital admissions and a quarter of deaths each year. The resultant financial impact on NHS Scotland is over £300 million per annum. To minimise the clinical and financial burden of tobacco on national healthcare systems, Scotland's tobacco control strategy aims to create a "tobacco-free" generation by 2034, with the prevalence of smoking in the adult population reduced to ≤5 %. The multifaceted approach ...
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a condition resulting from environmentally induced lung damage e.g. cigarette smoking and air pollution which, over time, causes individuals to suffer from symptoms including chronic cough and progressive breathlessness. In the UK COPD is predominantly caused by cigarette smoking which may have occurred decades before the symptoms appear and the disease is diagnosed. The aim of this study is to identify those COPD patients who cu...
The purpose of the study is to develop a detailed pregnancy registry of patients with Multiple Sclerosis in the New England states. Women with a diagnosis of MS that are either pregnant or actively planning to become pregnant are eligible to participate. The study will solely take place through phone interviews. One of the study coordinator at the Partners MS Center will contact the participant for an intake phone interview where general information about the individual, their...
About 17% of people with ID living in the community have challenging behaviour such as aggression to others or property, self-injury or hyperactivity. There are concerns that adults with ID and challenging behaviour over-use medication, spend large periods of time in hospital, and miss out on living in the community. Hospital care is expensive, and costs are increasing. NHS England has produced draft guidance about Intensive Support Teams (ISTs) proposing that they should be pa...
The overall aim of this study is to develop a test that predicts the prognosis of IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis) and which could be used to determine whether new treatments for IPF are likely to work.
Premature babies, born several weeks before their due date, are often very ill in the first weeks and months of life, compared with those born at full term. Because babies' brains and bodies are still developing at this time, early birth puts them at increased risk of later problems with health and development. It is important that we do everything we can to try to improve the overall health of these children. Not only will this help children and families, but it will also help...
Study of patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) who are newly prescribed NOACs (Novel Oral Anticoagulants) in routine clinical practice in England
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether there is an association between stroke or heart attack and reactivation of varicella zoster virus, measured by antibody levels, using linked data from the Health Survey for England and secondary care.
The purpose of this pilot study is to assess the feasibility and acceptability of randomising the phasing-in of the age extension of the NHS Breast Screening Programme in six volunteer sites in different areas of England.
In a population of patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF), and treated with oral anticoagulants (OAC) in routine clinical practice in England, this study will describe patients treated with each OAC, and to estimate and compare event rates of treatment discontinuation, bleeding, and healthcare resource utilisation (HCRU) across OAC treatments.
The purpose of this research is to review data already collected and to collect new data from adults and children in England with Gaucher Disease to determine clinical factors which predict severity and response to therapy of Gaucher disease especially in the areas of bone, cancer and brain conditions.
Observational comparative effectiveness study of individual patient data using interrupted time series analysis techniques of linked data sources to establish clinical and health economic effects of moving from systemic heparin anticoagulation to regional citrate anticoagulation during continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) for patients treated on non-specialist Intensive Care Units (ICUs) in England and Wales.
A unique multinational study was conducted simultaneously in the USA, England and Australia. The goals of the study were to answer two questions: Does psychosocial support for the family enhance the effectiveness of drug treatment for Alzheimer's disease? Is the added value of psychosocial support the same in all 3 countries?
Acute kidney injury requiring dialysis (AKI-D) has increased considerably over last 15 years. The national rise in incidence of acute kidney injury has several ramifications in terms of cost to the health services resulting not only from cost of therapy but also from the later consequences of AKI from development of chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease. Mortality in patients with AKI-D is very high and remains unchanged in the last decade in England. In recent year...
