The effect of the additional impact of testosterone replacement therapy in hypogonadal men on muscle strength and quality of life in comparison to physical exercise alone will be assessed. Treatment duration will be 54 weeks, to monitor the increase as well as the "steady state" of the parameters assessed.
This research is being done to see whether testosterone replacement in men who take opioid-based pain medications and have low testosterone levels will show improvement in pain tolerance, pain perception and quality of life. Some men who take opioid-based medications (narcotics) for pain develop low testosterone levels. Research has shown that low testosterone levels may make a person more sensitive to pain. This means that if a person with a painful condition develops low t...
In this randomized, cross‐over study 20 subjects who are undergoing testosterone (T) therapy for the treatment of T deficiency will receive both subcutaneous testosterone therapy and intramuscular testosterone therapy. One group will receive a SQ injection followed by an IM injection and one group will receive an IM injection followed by a SQ injection. The primary objective of this study is to measure testosterone concentration in men after these two treatment routes and det...
Low testosterone and diabetes mellitus are each associated with increased risk for fractures. Men with diabetes mellitus are commonly found to have low testosterone as well. Testosterone has been shown to improve the bone health of patients with low testosterone but has not been tested in patients who also have diabetes mellitus in addition to low testosterone. To date, there is no treatment that is specifically recommended for bone disease among patients with diabetes. This st...
The principal objective is to assess the diagnostic accuracy of the PoC assay (Genedrive, Epistem) to detect HCV RNA against the reference standard of commercial real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay (RealTime HCV, Abbott) using stored heparinized plasma from patients with chronic hepatitis C and non-infected controls.
Low testosterone may be responsible for "soft" erections in men. The purpose of our study is to see whether the daily application of a testosterone gel to raise testosterone levels will also increase the "hardness" of a man's erection.
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of having testosterone deficiency in men with diabetes and with obesity. The study will also evaluate the effect of testosterone therapy. This will be done by comparing the changes in several body response indicators following treatment with testosterone in diabetic or obese-non diabetic men with low testosterone levels and comparing them to diabetic or obese-non diabetic men with low testosterone who are not treated with testo...
The Testosterone Trials are a multi-center set of trials involving 12 clinical sites geographically distributed across the United States. The primary specific aims are to test the hypotheses that testosterone treatment of elderly men whose serum testosterone concentrations are unequivocally low - and who have symptoms and objectively measured abnormalities in at least one of five areas that could be due to low testosterone (physical or sexual function, vitality, cognition, and...
In this case‐controlled, observational study, 24 subjects will participate in a 12‐hour blood collection with a single blood draw at +24 hours. 12 men will have low testosterone levels (hypogonadism) and 12 men will have normal testosterone levels. Blood samples will be drawn every 2 hours and later analyzed for total testosterone and calculated free testosterone. The primary objective of this study is to assess the degree of diurnal variation in men with testosterone defic...
This is a retrospective external validation study of a novel in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) assay that will include review of medical charts of 4500 pediatric patients to whom ImmunoXpert™ test was taken as part of routine workup for acute febrile illness. The investigated assay requires the measurement of three host-related, blood-based, protein bio-markers that will be integrated using a formula into a single score. Based on this score, each patient is classified into one of t...
Low testosterone is a condition that occurs when the body is unable to produce sufficient quantities of testosterone. The medical name for low testosterone is hypogonadism. Hypogonadism can be caused by many factors. Symptoms include: decrease in libido, lack of energy and mood swings. The goal of testosterone replacement therapy is to return testosterone levels to the normal range and relieve symptoms. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the ability of Fortigel testoste...
The purpose of this study is to see if treatment with testosterone will reduce abdominal fat in HIV-positive men. Many HIV patients on antiretroviral therapy show an increase in abdominal fat. Studies have shown that treatment with testosterone may decrease abdominal fat. This study will determine if testosterone will reduce abdominal fat in HIV patients.
We hypothesize that testosterone replacement will improve mood and quality of life in older men with low testosterone and mild depression. Study subjects will receive either testosterone gel or a placebo (inactive) gel for 12 weeks. Neither the subject or the investigator will know whether they are receiving placebo or testosterone gel. At the end of the initial 12 week period, all subjects will receive testosterone gel for 12 more weeks. Mood and quality of life measures w...
Measurement of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) in dyspneic patients increases diagnostic accuracy for congestive heart failure (CHF). Limited information is available regarding economic outcomes attributable to BNP assay. The aim of this study was to assess the economic impact of BNP assay in elderly dyspneic patients presenting to the emergency department (ED).
Measure and evaluate the level of testosterone in blood, and determine the safety and tolerability following daily applications of testosterone gel. Subjects who complete this trial may participate in the extension part (UMD-01-080E).
The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of testosterone replacement therapy in frail elderly female hip fracture patients who have testosterone deficiency, and to obtain preliminary information about the effects of testosterone therapy on muscle strength and size, bone density, mobility, daily functioning, and quality of life.
We will investigate if testosterone is preferentially given to patients at higher risk of cardiovascular events. If this is the case, then observational studies may be prone to selection bias resulting in overestimation of the cardiovascular risk associated with testosterone when compared to a healthier population not taking testosterone
With advancing age testosterone levels decline in men. Low testosterone levels plus certain symptoms are called "Late Onset Hypogonadism (LOH)". Adipose tissue may contribute to testosterone deficiency. On the other hand testosterone deficiency again leads to a decrease in lean body mass and an increase in fat mass - one of the clinical signs / symptoms of LOH. Lifestyle changes (diet, exercise) alone or in combination with testosterone replacement (TRT), have an influence on t...
Cystatin C, a protease inhibitor produced by most nucleated cells, is freely filtered by the kidneys, and its plasma assay reflects the GFR. Compare, in HIV patients, the predictive performance of 11 formula to estimate GFR based on assay plasma cystatin C with that of the MDRD formulas.
The purpose of this pharmacokinetic study is to determine whether oral testosterone ester formulations can be used effectively to treat men with low testosterone.
Testosterone replacement treatment is the most effective way of treating hypogonadism in men. Acrux has a proprietry testosterone replacement product - Testosterone-MD Lotion, and this study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of this product.
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate if testosterone solution can raise testosterone hormone levels into the normal range, and also improve levels of sexual arousal, interest and drive and/or energy level, in men with low testosterone and decreased sexual arousal, interest and drive and/or decreased energy. The study will last about 16 weeks, followed by an optional 24 week open label treatment phase to investigate the long term safety of testosterone solution.
The purpose of the study is to find out the effect of replacing testosterone in the form of a gel (Androgel®) on the amount of fat mass in males with low testosterone and diabetes.
