This study intends to evaluate the nasal mucociliary clearance (NMC) by determining the value obtained for saccharin transit time (STT) test over the course of 12 hours following a single cigarette use in smokers, to compare it relative to never smokers, and to examine the relationship between plasma nicotine levels and STT value in smokers and never smokers. Safety will also be monitored during the study. The planned maximum study duration for a single study participant from ...
The purpose of this research study is to test the ability of Mucinex, an oral, over-the-counter, FDA approved expectorant) to stimulate the clearance of inhaled particles from the subject's lungs (called "mucociliary clearance"). The study will also monitor the metabolism of the drug by the subject's body.
This is a 14-day, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel group, masked clinical trial of oral guaifenesin for the therapy of Chronic Rhinitis in 36 children between the ages of 7 and 18 years. The study investigates the effectiveness of guaifenesin in the relief of nasal symptoms in children with CRS using the sinonasal 5 survey (SN-5) in comparison to nasal airway volume, and biophysical properties of nasal secretion. The investigators hypothesize that Guaifenesin use over a...
The objective of this study is to determine the effect of airway surface liquid (ASL) volume on mucociliary clearance in cystic fibrosis (CF). A two-isotope nuclear medicine technique will be utilized. This pilot trial will include the imaging of n=7 CF subjects and n=7 healthy subjects. The trial will include one study visit per subject that will take approximately 3 hours. Hypothesis: The simultaneous imaging of both a "floating" and a "penetrating" radioisotope tag will...
The purpose of this study is to Evaluation of absorption, metabolism, and excretion of [14C]-K-312 and estimation of the absolute bioavailability of K-312 in healthy male subjects
It is a biomedical research without direct individual benefit, exploring and comparing the mucosal immune response after oral, nasal and sublingual administration of B-subunit of non-toxic cholera toxin (CTB) in healthy adult volunteers.
It has been suggested that mitochondrial dysfunction might play a role in the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy. From animal studies, it has been suggested that an altered PPAR and PGC1 expression is involved in the reduced cardiac mitochondrial function, however human data on cardiac mitochondrial function and PPAR regulation is scarce. The latter is due to the fact that there is no validated measurement for assessing cardiac mitochondrial function non-invasively in vivo....
Purpose of the present research project is to study a new in-vivo test for abnormal platelet function and to study the effect of certain drugs on clinical bleeding. This is a randomized clinical trial of a new in-vivo test of platelet function known as the bleeding volume test(BVT)which relies on an on-line measurement system. This trial will assess the sensitivity and specificity of the new BVT by studying the effects of aspirin which is known to affect platelet function in-...
This study will assess the effect of inhaled AZD5634 on Mucociliary clearance (MCC) in patients with Cystic fibrosis (CF) after single-dose administration.
The purpose of this project is to determine if intranasal corticosteroids have an effect on nasal obstruction in patients with nasal septal deviation.
1. Assessment of a high speed video camera with a green light source for the measurement of ciliary beat frequency (CBF) in the nasal airways of patients. 2. Assessments of the effect of drugs and other therapies on CBF using the study system. 3. Comparison of results with standard methods such as ciliary brush biopsies
Iron deficiency is still the most common and widespread nutritional disorder in the world according to WHO. In a recent iron absorption study in adult women with low iron stores in our lab (publication under review), we found that 15 g of GOS given with an iron supplement in the form of iron fumarate acutely increased iron absorption when given with water and a bread based meal. The dose of 15 g of GOS was tolerated well by the participants. As a follow up to the study m...
We, the investigators, aim to study, in vitro and in vivo, the bioavailability of added b-cryptoxanthin and phytosterols and evaluate in vivo its effect on biochemical markers of bone remodelling and cardiovascular risk. Specifically, we will 1) assess the stability in the food and the bioavailability of b-cryptoxanthin in the presence of phytosterols (absorption modifiers) by using a complementary approach; in vitro and in vivo studies; and 2) we will study in post-menopausal ...
The main purpose of this open randomized, ex-vivo comparative study, is to assess and to compare the inhalable dose of inhaled corticosteroid collected through a nasal filter and a mouth filter located in a partitioned face mask and delivered to an infant with asthma via a Tipshaler® holding chamber
The aim of the study is to test the absorption and clinical effect of nasal administration of sufentanil+ketamine (nasal spray) for procedure-related pain in hospitalized children.
The aim of this project is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the biomaterial made of HAP/TCP (BCP, Kasios®), in septoplasties of multi traumatized human nose. The use of this biomaterial will avoid the graft sampling and we expect it to be a good substitute to support the nasal pyramid while favouring the respiratory epithelium regeneration. Thus, that would confirm previous in vitro and in vivo studies.
The goal of this prospective randomized study is to compare the effect of nasal tip lifting during nasotracheal intubation. The question the investigators are trying to answer is: If the nasal tip is tilted, will the E-tube be more likely to enter the lower passage during nasal intubation?
The intent of this study is to see if the rate that the body breaks down l-methamphetamine (l-MA) could be used as an accurate estimate for the rate that the body breaks down d-methamphetamine (d-MA). l-MA is sold over the counter as a nasal decongestant where as d-MA is the commonly abused form of methamphetamine.
Conventional indirect indicators of iron status, using serum and red blood cell biomarkers, are confounded by inflammation from common infections in sub-Saharan Africa, a region with a high prevalence of iron deficiency, making the assessment of iron balance and efficiency of iron intervention difficult. A new method allowing accurate measurement of long-term oral iron absorption and allowing the estimation of iron requirements is highly needed. Such a novel method to quantify ...
Sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG)-acupuncture has been shown to exhibit distinct effects in treatment of nasal inflammatory disease, but the mechanisms remain largely unknown. Investigators aimed to assess the effects of SPG acupuncture for nasal ventilation function and autonomic nervous system in health volunteers. The randomized, double-blind, controlled clinical trial enrolled healthy volunteers.Healthy subjects were randomly assigned to either active SPG-acupuncture group or s...
This research study is examining the absorption of the sedative dexmedetomidine (DEX) in the blood when given by nasal spray. The study will help us determine the best dosing amount for children undergoing sedation or anesthesia with DEX.
Evaluation of the effect of fluticasone propionate vs placebo applied as nasal spray on the increase of allergen-specific serum IgE levels following nasal exposure to recombinant allergens. Nasal sprays will be applied for four weeks starting two weeks before nasal provocation and serum IgE levels will be followed during eight weeks after nasal provocation.
The purpose of this study is to determine if acquired (partial) Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) deficiency contributes substantially to the pathogenic mechanisms underlying Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS), creating a localized environment that impairs mucociliary clearance (MCC).
This study aims to assess the effect of nasal high flow oxygen therapy on regional function measured by volumetric computed tomography, in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Patients with cystic fibrosis frequently develop chronic rhinosinusitis. Bacterial colonization is facilitated by a reduced mucociliary function and some previous studies suggest that the microbiology of the upper airways might influence the microbiology of the lower airway. The aim of this randomized control study is to demonstrate efficacy of antibiotic delivered by nebulized sonic aerosol therapy to decrease the bacterial load in sinuses and medium ostia and to improve the s...
