Growth Hormone and Chromosome 18q- and Abnormal Growth

We, the investigators at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, want to learn if height and IQ (intelligence quotient) scores are improved by growth hormone (GH) treatment in children with chromosome 18 deletions and abnormal growth. Data from a previous study showed that growth hormone improved height in all children with 18q- and growth hormone deficiency. In addition, most of the study participants on growth hormone treatment showed an increase in IQ...

Evaluation of the Information Letter to Relatives in the Context of Genetic Assessments

The decree of June 20th 2013 (n° 2013-527) suggests a protocol regarding the transmission of information to the relatives after genetic diagnosis of a serious condition. This decree includes a specific model of letter that can be sent to relatives by genetic professionals. We evaluated the understanding and feelings after the reading of the decree's letter (letter A) on patients and the public. A focus group drafted a new version of the letter (letter B) through these observat...

Personalization of Cover Letter and Response Rate

Several studies indicate that a survey that adapts personalized design features achieves higher participation rates. A feature can be a personalized cover letter which appears more relevant and interesting for the sample member. In the spirit of adaptive design, this study seeks to establish whether it can be advantageous for participation overall to use cover letters with targeted content and whether the effect on participation of different versions of the cover letter varies ...

The Usefulness of Patients Receiving Their Own Letter After an Outpatient Attendance

As part of the NHS plan it has been proposed to extend some consultants' usual practices and to send all patients copies of the letters sent to their general practitioners (GPs) following outpatient consultations. The current Secretary of State for Health has further extended this proposal and suggested that patients should have a specific letter to themselves after a hospital consultation. The aim of this study is to send patients both a copy of the letter sent to their GPs ...

Effects of Growth Hormone on Glucose and Protein Metabolism in Children With Growth Hormone Deficiency

The purpose of the proposed study is to investigate the effects of rhGH treatment on glucose, protein and fat metabolism in GHD children. Specifically, we will measure the rates of glucose production, gluconeogenesis, glycogenolysis, insulin sensitivity and glucagon response before and after treatment with rhGH.

Specifically, GPs in practices whose prescribing has increase by more than 4% over the past year will receive a letter stating that "The great ...

rhGH and rhIGF-1 Combination Therapy in Children With Short Stature Associated With IGF-1 Deficiency

IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1) is a hormone that is normally produced in the body in response to another hormone called growth hormone. Growth Hormone is produced by a small gland at the base of the brain (the pituitary). Together IGF-1 and GH are large contributors to growth during infancy, childhood, and adolescence. Children with IGF Deficiency are short and have an imbalance in the levels of growth hormone and IGF-1 that their body produces. Their growth hormone lev...

Childhood Influenza Immunisation Invitation Trial in Schools

This study will investigate whether influenza vaccine uptake by school-age children (in school-based clinics) can be increased by making behavioural-insight informed changes to the invitation process which encourage parents to return consent forms.

ColonCancerCheck Mailed Invitations: An Evaluation

This study evaluates effectiveness of mailed invitations for colorectal cancer screening among screen-eligible Ontarians who are due for screening. The study will evaluate the effectiveness of mailed invitations in general (compared to no invitation) but will also determine if new invitation letters (2 letters for male, 1 letter for females) are more effective than current invitation letters used by the ColonCancerCheck program.

Exploring Interactions Between Growth Hormone and the Microbiome

The goal of this study is to characterize the microbiome of children with Growth Hormone (GH) deficiency, following GH treatment initiation and compare it to healthy children and develop a model for predicting growth response to GH treatment based on clinical and laboratory parameters.

Mail Outreach To Increase Vaccination Acceptance Through Engagement

The aim of this study is to determine whether receiving a core letter signed by the Surgeon General or the Director of the National Vaccine Program that provides only information about influenza, or a core letter signed by the Surgeon General with an added basic or enhanced implementation prompt, will increase rates of influenza vaccination among Medicare beneficiaries when compared to a control group.

Effect of Brief-tele Support on Attendance at Physiotherapy Sessions

Patients on the waiting list for physiotherapy treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction will be randomly divided into three groups: - a group that gets a telephone call before their invitation letter is sent. - a group that gets a telephone call after their invitation letter is sent. - a group that does not receive a telephone call. The phone call is a brief 5-10 minute call, which will be semi-structured. It will remind the patient of their appointment time, i...

Growth Response in Short Children Suffering From a Disease With Growth Retardation and Treated With Somatropin

Growth hormone therapy will improve the height of short statured children with pathological conditions that lead to growth retardation. Growth hormone therapy will show an increase in height velocity >1 SD compared to pretreatment height velocity. and the therapy will be safe.

Stanford Letter or Traditional Advance Directive in Advance Care Planning in Patients Undergoing Bone Marrow Transplant

The purpose of the proposed research study is to evaluate whether bone marrow transplant patients prefer the Stanford letter advance care planning tool to the standard Advance directive. Completion of advance care planning prior to BMT is very important, but not often done. The investigators believe that the Stanford Letter will be preferred by patients and will allow them to feel more comfortable and share more of their wishes with family members and the medical team.

Recruitment of Patients Through Invitation Letters

Recruitment of patients with schizophrenia to clinical trials is difficult and in an ongoing project different methods of recruitment have been used in order to recruit. One of the methods used have been sending potential participant to the study an invitation letter with information of the study and an invitation to make contact with a project nurse.

Endocrine Dysfunction and Growth Hormone Deficiency in Children With Optic Nerve Hypoplasia

Hypotheses: 1. The prevalence of endocrinopathies, and growth hormone (GH) deficiency in particular, among young children diagnosed with optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH) is higher than is commonly thought. 2. Early treatment of children with ONH and GH-deficiency can prevent adverse outcomes. Aims: 1. Determine the prevalence and types of endocrinopathies in children diagnosed with ONH. 2. Correlate endocrine outcome with radiographic, ocular, and...
