The main objective of this study is to highlight a relationship between exposure to PAHs, genotoxic effect biomarkers on spermatozoa and follicular cells, as well as embryonic quality and embryo implantation rates at a given time. IVF attempt. This study therefore analyzes the possibility of using this exposure biomarker as a reliable means of evaluating the quality of gametes in order to estimate the chances of success in IVF.
Polyethylene wear debris from metal-on-polyethylene articulations are one of the main causes of periprosthetic bone loss and non-infectious loosening in total hip arthroplasty. Ceramic articulations have a very low wear rate when measured in the laboratory and the investigator's hypothesis is that hip arthroplasty with an all ceramic articulation will have less osteolysis and wear in addition to equally good fixation and clinical outcome compared to the same hip arthroplasty de...
Biomedical implant metals are reactive when in contact with body fluids. Some reactions may adverse the biocompatibility character of the material and should be studied. This can be achieved by direct measurement through electrochemical, gravimetric, spectrophotometric and surface analysis of reaction occurring at the interface between functionalized metal samples and body fluids (synovia) directly extracted from patients. The general aim of this project is to contribute to de...
This research may explain whether a shortage of three special compounds called aromatic amino acids is responsible for the severe illness and high death rate of children with the kwashiorkor type of malnutrition and whether supplying adequate amounts of these compounds in the treatment diet will speed up recovery from this condition. We propose that decreased availability of the aromatic amino acids may be the reason why children with kwashiorkor are sicker and more difficult t...
Firefighters are at increased risk of cancer, and both inhalation and dermal routes contribute to overall exposure to carcinogens, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The purpose of the current study is to determine if post-fire firefighter rehabilitation in an infrared sauna: a) affects absorption of PAHs as measured by urinary metabolites; and b) changes core body temperature and heart rate.
This is a multi-center, randomized study to compare blood and urine cobalt, chromium, and titanium ion levels of a metal-on-metal articular bearing coupled with two different head sizes to that of a conventional metal-on-polyethylene bearing.
Bloodstream infections cause significant morbidity and mortality and their prompt identification is an essential part of modern medicine. False positive results in blood cultures are primarily due to contaminants. It has been estimated that up to 50% of positive blood cultures represent contamination. These false positive cultures, at the microbiological laboratory level, require significant additional resources for workup. Additionally, they result in unnecessary antibiotic tr...
Younger hip patients often need revision of their hip replacement due to wear and loosening. Newer concepts (resurfacing and large head total hip replacement) with articulation surfaces in metal may reduce the wear, increase the longevity of the implant and give an improved function. The possible downside is that these concepts releases metal debris to the body. The investigators wish to see if the newer interventions are a clinical improvement compared to standard. The investi...
This randomized, double blind, parallel group study, compared the efficacy of spray containing aromatic essential oils of some herbal plants, against placebo in the treatment of patients with acute viral Pharyngo-tonsillitis. Study objectives: Primary to demonstrate a throat pain relief within 20 minutes after first administration of treatment with the spray. Secondary to demonstrate a reduction of a defined symptoms sum score based on symptoms and signs comparing basel...
The purpose of this study is to monitor the performance and compare the metal ion release of two bearing combinations, ceramic-on-metal and metal-on-metal in the treatment of patients with hip joint disease requiring a total hip replacement. Patients who enter the study will be randomly allocated to one of the bearing combinations and will be evaluated at regular intervals using, patient, clinical and x-ray assessments. Patients will also have blood samples taken at regular int...
This study is being conducted to determine the rate of symptomatic and asymptomatic nonmalignant, noninfective soft tissue mass presence (referred to in the literature as pseudotumour, ALVAL, ARMD, cysts or lesions) in primary metal on metal hip replacement patients. The primary objective of the study is to determine the prevalence of masses in unbiased Metal on Metal (MoM) samples drawn from one study centre. The subjects receiving the Metal on Metal devices will be observed a...
Phenylalanine and tyrosine are aromatic amino acids that people need to obtain in their diets. Amino acids are the building blocks for protein, are are therefore required to form tissues in the body. It is well known that pregnant women require more protein in their diets, but the exact amount for each amino acid is undetermined. To find out how much of phenylalanine and tyrosine pregnant women require, the investigators plan to study pregnant women in early and late gestation ...
Slightly elevated blood metal levels have been found in adults undergoing hip and knee replacement. It is unknown whether pediatric patients with metal implant(plates/screws/rods) have elevated blood metal levels. This may have an impact on practice if children have high blood metal levels with routine orthopedic implants. If researchers find elevated metal levels, they may recommend patients to have the plates removed or may switch to a different type of metal. Further work on...
Neuroblastoma (NB) is the most common malignant tumor of infancy. Approximately 60% of NB patients are clinically diagnosed as the stage IV disease and have a very poor prognosis with the 5-year survival rate no more than 30%. Molecular markers of NB have great impacts on the tumor behavior. MYCN amplification is the most well-known marker to predict a poor outcome in NB patients. However, how MYCN affects the NB cell behavior remains unknown. In our preliminary studies, we per...
Orotracheal intubation following general anesthesia requires blades to be performed. The risk of patients contamination with infectious agents related to reusable metal blades leads to promote single-use blades. Some of these latter are plastic and this material may need more strength to lift the jaw and expose the larynx before orotracheal intubation. Sometimes, change of blade, from plastic to metal, during the procedure is necessary to increase the larynx exposure. This cha...
The purpose of this study is to monitor the performance and determine the metal ion release of the Pinnacle™ Cup with a metal-on-metal bearing combination in the treatment of patients with hip joint disease requiring a total hip replacement. Patients who enter the study will be evaluated at regular intervals following hip surgery using patient, clinical and x-ray assessments. A subset of patients will also have blood samples taken at regular intervals to allow the metal ion l...
This clinical trial expansion is to offer patients, who are not enrolled into the Phase I/II trial, a chance of treatment, to extend the experience in this gene therapy, and to increase the dosage slightly to waive the drug dilution procedure.
