To test the hypothesis that PPAR-gamma agonist, rosiglitazone, induces carotid plaque regression in diabetic ESRD patients on maintenance PD via its anti-inflammatory property.
The purpose of this study is to determine if treatment with a drug called fenofibrate, which is a PPAR-alpha agonist and controls how the heart metabolizes fats, will reverse the age-related decline in cardiac fat metabolism and mechanical function.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether rosiglitazone, a peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPAR-gamma) agonist, induces regression in carotid atherosclerotic plaques in diabetic patients with vascular disease and/or hypertension over a 12 month period.
According to the above evidence, though the exact mechanism contributing to the Thiazolidinediones (TZDs) associated peripheral edema is still unclear, the investigators hypothesize that the genetic variations of certain candidate genes involved in peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) gamma itself and PPAR gamma-regulated genes may contribute to TZDs-associated peripheral edema. Therefore, the investigators plan to conduct a case-control study to test the associati...
We propose to test the hypothesis that bezafibrate, a pan-PPAR agonist, may be effective and safe for bipolar depression with the following specific aims: Aim #1. Proof-of-Concept Safety and Tolerability Aim: To assess the safety and tolerability of bezafibrate added to lithium for bipolar depression, especially with regard to worsening manic symptoms and suicidal ideation. We will conduct a phase IIa, 8-week, open pilot trial of bezafibrate added to lithium in 20 parti...
The current management of primary FSGS is predicated on the assumption that the disease is caused by an immune-mediated disturbance in glomerular barrier function. Therefore, most treatment protocols have involved immunosuppressive drugs given singly or in combination. However, the efficacy of this type of therapy has been disappointing and the long-term prognosis for renal survival in patients with resistant FSGS is poor. An alternative approach that targets the fibrosis pathw...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether PPAR-delta agonist (GW5015156)had favorable effect on lipoprotein metabolism.
In Mexico, alcoholic liver disease is the fourth cause of mortality (INEGI). Patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis have a high mortality at 28 days and 6 months, patients receiving standard treatment with prednisone that are non responders (Lille> 0.45) have a survival of 53.3 ± 5.1 % to 28 days. At present, there is not a completely effective treatment this non responders patients, with a high mortality, so it is necessary to look for other therapeutic strategies. T...
The objective of the study is to compare PPAR activities (increase of adiponectin level) between MICARDIS and amlodipine after 6 weeks of treatment in hypertensive patients with metabolic syndrome. Moreover, this study will compare serum level of inflammatory markers of the metabolic syndrome after 6 weeks of treatment. An ancillary study performed in one center will assess adipocyte differentiation (PPAR gamma stimulation) in 30 subjects (15 per arm).
To test the hypothesis that stimulation of PPAR-γ receptors has a therapeutic role in the treatment of asthma.
An open-label, Phase I, dose escalation study of CS-7017 administered by mouth in sequential cohorts of 3 to 6 patients with advanced or metastatic malignancies.
The purpose of this research study is to find out if a certain type of hormone therapy, gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRH agonist), affects the way the body produces and responds to insulin. The investigators will evaluate the changes in insulin sensitivity during and after GnRH agonist treatment for prostate cancer. The investigators are assessing the possibility that treatment-related insulin resistance may contribute to the risk of diabetes and/or cardiovascular...
The long-term goal of the TEDDY study is the identification of infectious agents, dietary factors, or other environmental agents, including psychosocial factors which trigger T1DM in genetically susceptible individuals or which protect against the disease. Identification of such factors will lead to a better understanding of disease pathogenesis and result in new strategies to prevent, delay or reverse T1DM.
The ultimate goal of this study is to find specific polymorphism of candidate genes associated with endophenotypes and/or phenomenological phenotypes of ADHD. We propose to replicate the analysis of the candidate genes identified by previous genetic studies on ADHD using the candidate gene association study design (family-based case control study using parental controls) to validate the findings from other research groups. These results will lead our team: (1) to resolve contro...
The primary objective was to evaluate the PSA (biochemical) progression-free survival (PFS) of high-risk metastasis-free PC patients, treated with LH-RH agonist for one year with or without docetaxel after prior radical prostatectomy (RP) or radiotherapy (RT). The study was powered at 80% to detect a 25% improvement in biochemical PFS for a total sample size estimated at 252 patients, with a two-sided type I error rate of 5% (non-parametric methods.
Moderate alcohol consumption is associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. The association of alcohol consumption with cardiovascular disease is mediated by a functional polymorphism of alcohol dehydrogenase 1c, but the effect of this polymorphism on alcohol metabolism is only investigated in vitro. The risk reduction of moderate alcohol consumption for cardiovascular disease is explained largely by an increase of HDL cholesterol, but an in...
Pioglitazone, an agonist of the peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR), is a relatively new oral anti-hyperglycemic drug. Since its first approval in the USA in 1999, a potential link with bladder cancer has been a subject of debate. US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September, 2010 and European Medicines Agency in July, 2011 issued an alert about a potential relation between the occurrence of bladder cancer and the prescription of pioglitazone, based on the d...
The principal objective of this study is to explore the role of 18F-FDG PET in identifying sorafenib-induced metabolic shift in HCC, thus in predicting treatment response and disease outcome in advanced HCC patients candidate to systemic treatment with sorafenib.
GSK Biologicals is developing a number of candidate malaria vaccines for the routine immunization of infants and children living in malaria-endemic areas. The candidate vaccines are designed to offer protection against malaria disease due to the parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Candidate vaccines containing the RTS,S antigen would also provide protection against infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV). This study will evaluate two candidate vaccines. The Protocol Posting has been...
During pregnancy lead crosses the placenta freely and can have adverse effects on the fetus, with the potential for life-long impact on the child. Identification of dietary patterns and food groups in pregnancy in relation to measures of lead status could provide a more useful alternative to a nutrient-specific advice to minimise fetal exposure to lead during pregnancy. The aim is to evaluate whether dietary patterns and food groups are associated with blood lead concentrations...
A Study of the Effect of Glucagon-like Peptide 1(GLP-1) Receptor Agonist in Combination With Metformin Therapy on Diabetes Remission in Subjects With Newly Diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes Who Are Overweight or Obese
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of GLP-1 receptor agonist on inducing diabetes remission in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes who are overweight or obese
The Phase I/II study will be conducted as an open label, multiple center study of CS-7017, an experimental drug and paclitaxel chemotherapy in subjects with advanced anaplastic thyroid cancer. Biopsies will be obtained from patients with accessible tumor at baseline, two-weeks after the first CS-7017 dosage (prior to the start of combination therapy) and at the end of the first study cycle (week 3 of combination therapy), in order to evaluate the effects of the study drug alon...
AGO study - adjuvant treatment, with NSAID, of endocrine ophthalmopathy in Graves´ disease Background - Already at diagnosis of Graves disease approximately 98% of the patients have morphological changes of the retrobulbar tissue concordant with ophthalmopathy. Factors known to induce clinical symptoms of ophthalmopathy are mainly unknown. An interesting observation is that a patient with stable and inactive Graves´ disease developed ophthalmopathy when treated with...
Even with optimal anti-malaria therapy and supportive care, severe and cerebral malaria are associated with a 10-30% mortality rate and neurocognitive deficits in up to 33% of survivors. Adjunctive therapies that modify host immune-pathological processes may further improve outcome over that possible with anti-malarials alone. Investigators aim to evaluate a PPARγ agonist ( "rosiglitazone") as adjunctive therapy for severe malaria.
The recent developments of research on iPS (induced pluripotent stem) cells lead to the establishment of mature cell lines such as cardiomyocytes or valvular interstitial cells with genetic and cellular characteristics of the donors. These cells represent a biological material more readily available to identify the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in the diseases of BrS or ERS patients, which will lead to the identification of genetic markers.
