The study aims to evaluate the hypothesized benefits of a systematic organic diet for children, over those of a conventional diet. The specific objectives of this study are to: i) Demonstrate the decreased body burden of pesticides for those children consuming an organic diet, and ii) Evaluate the effects in specific biomarkers of inflammation and oxidative stress in children systematically consuming an organic diet.
In Quebec, thousands of workers are concomitantly exposed to heat and chemical compounds. Exposure to heat induces physiological responses that help maintaining a stable body temperature. Those changes can affect organ functions implicated in absorption and metabolism. According to literature, those changes could lead to increased concentrations of chemical compounds in the body and their toxicity. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the pulmonary absorption and tox...
Introduction: Neuromotor losses are those that most affect the functionality of the elderly person. One of the preventive measures is the habit of practicing exercises regularly. Objective: To evaluate the motor fitness and the quality of life of elders before and after intervention, performed on soil and aquatic environment. Methodology: This was a randomized controlled trial, with blind evaluator and total sample of 38 elders, divided into three groups: control (n=15), soil (...
The hypothesis of the investigators is that patients with septic shock in ICU have acute intestinal insufficiency favoring subclinical microbial translocation, which is the consequence of alterations of the epithelium, and is accompanied by qualitative and quantitative changes in the gut microbiota. The primary objective is to determine the incidence of microbial translocation by measuring 16S rDNA and 18S rDNA plasma levels in a patient population with septic shock. Se...
The effect of microbial exposure on healthy human subjects will be investigated. Changes in cytokine and IgE and vaccine response will be measured. The hypothesis is that microbial exposure increases the measured responses.
Results from a small number of human cohort studies are also available and indicate that there are positive associations between organic food consumption and reduced risk/incidence of certain acute diseases (e.g. pre-eclampsia, hypospadias) and obesity/overweight. Results from animal dietary intervention studies suggest that (i) switching to organic food consumption results in significant changes in hormonal balances and an increase in immune system responsiveness and (ii) dif...
Healthy volunteers will be exposed to ambient air near a roadway under the conditions of with and without a facemask and their responses will be evaluated.
Cognitive impairment is one of the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and it may occur during the first years of the disease. It usually affects attention, information processing speed and short term memory. To date, the mechanisms of this specific symptom remain unclear (local or global inflammation, neurodegenerative processes). Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) can be useful to understand the pathophysiology of cognitive impairment in MS. The investigators will combine con...
The primary purpose is to improve and quicken the microbial diagnosis in severe infections, since only one third of the cases are documented by blood cultures and adequate anti-infective therapy in the 48 hours reduced mortality and morbidity. Our hypothesis is that detection of microbial DNA in blood by real time PCR may increase the number of cases diagnosed for bacteraemia or fungemia and shorten the time to positive results, which will provide information for an adequate a...
The main objective of the trial is to investigate the effect of known genetic variants in organic cation transporter 1 (OCT1) on the effect of morphine after major surgery
The goal of this study is to characterize tau kinetics and tau aggregation in the human CNS and to test the hypothesis that tau kinetics are altered (i.e. increased production, decreased clearance, and increased aggregation rate) in tauopathies.
The objective of this pilot study is to assess the feasibility of fecal microbial transplants for the therapy of pediatric ulcerative colitis. Specifically, the investigators will test the hypothesis that a protocol of twice-weekly retention enemas over six weeks, using fecal transplant material from an anonymous donor previously associated with significant therapeutic response, will improve the efficacy of fecal microbial transplant in pediatric ulcerative colitis patients.
Organic nitrates increase levels of circulating endothelial progenitor cells (Thum et al., Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2007 Apr;27(4):748-54). Here, we want to test the effects of two different organic nitrates (PETN, ISDN) on number and function of endothelial progenitor cells and endothelial function.

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the prevalence of white matter lesions in Chinese migraineurs with and without right-to-left shunt. The aim is to study the relationship among right-to-left shunt, migraine and white matter lesions.
BACKGROUND: Malignant tumors may lead to a catabolic state with loss of muscle and adipose tissue. The full picture of catabolism is termed cachexia and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality of cancer patients. Although the full picture is rarely observed up to 50% of children with cancer suffer from significant malnourishment. Additionally to tumor-induced catabolism, side-effects of chemotherapy may be problematic for the patients. In this regard up to 60% of...
Women were given a vitamin A tracer, and blood was sampled to determine individual and group vitamin A kinetics. Data were subsequently modeled using compartmental analysis to determine effects of study length on model outcomes.
Environmental factors constitute an important but underappreciated risk factor towards the development and progression of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Environmental exposure in variable pollutants is implicated in the derangement or propagation of adverse pathophysiological processes linked with atherosclerosis, including genetic, hemodynamic, metabolic, oxidative and inflammation parameters. However no data exists concerning environmental pollution in rural or semi-rural area...

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the first non-traumatic cause of disability in young people, responsible for physical but also cognitive deficits. MS is an inflammatory demyelinating and degenerative disease of the central nervous system. Recently, MRI technics have demonstrated their sensibility to the different processes involved in MS. Particularly, MRI has evidenced that the pathological process of MS is not restricted to the macroscopic lesions of the white matter but also invo...
Pharmacological Recruitment of Endogenous Neural Precursors to Promote Pediatric White Matter Repair: Establishing Correlations Between Visual Outcomes, Saccadic Function and MEG Oscillations in Children With Demyelinating Disorders in Comparison to Healt
The neural circuits in our brains require a layer of insulation in order to transmit signals in a rapid and efficient fashion. This insulation is called White Matter and is comprised of a specific type of brain cell called an oligodendrocytes. Damage to brain white matter occurs following injury and in disorders like Multiple Sclerosis and results in sensory, motor, and cognitive problems. Currently there are no effective medical therapies to promote brain repair and reduce dis...
Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and the third leading cause of death in Canada. Most stroke survivors live with residual impairments that diminish independence and quality of life. This may include vascular cognitive impairment (loss of ability to plan, think and reason) which can lead to dementia and loss of mental and functional independence. The current treatment to reduce stroke induced brain tissue injury is limited to thrombolytics (clot busters), a thera...
White matter fiber tracking may provide a novel tool to assess the integrity of injured motor tracts in the cervical spine. It provides information about fiber directions which is not given by conventional MRI. White matter fiber tracking in the brain is used at several institutions, including our own medical college, for presurgical planning of tumor excision. We believe that the technical and clinical experience gained for the brain can be applied to fiber tracking in the cer...
