To improve the understanding of oral health in El Paso, the City of El Paso Health Department has teamed up with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso in a collaborative effort to determine the factors that contribute to poor oral hygiene, and lead to cavities and periodontitis. The team will collect saliva, oral debris, leftover teeth and plaque from ch...
The purpose of this study to investigate attitude, oral health literacy and psychological factors in order to evaluate if these factors are important for oral health in adults.

The purpose of this feasibility study is to test the potential for successful implementation of an intervention designed to study the effect of six hours out of bed time on the overall level of deconditioning in pediatric stem cell transplant (SCT) patients. Previous research has demonstrated that deconditioning occurs rapidly over the course of the hospitalization post-transplant and can negatively impact quality of life. By encouraging patients to be out of bed for six hours ...
The investigators will develop a "risk report" within the primary care electronic health record (EMIS) for patients attending for their National Health Service Health Check. The value of the report for reducing cardiovascular risk will be assessed qualitatively and also quantitatively in a non-randomised comparative trial.
Intellectual disabled persons faced more dental problems.

Older adults living in subsidized housing report poorer health. Their low income and age make it harder for them to use community services. Many older adults have heart disease and diabetes, which lead to frequent emergency calls and hospital admissions. To decrease the costs of treating heart disease and diabetes through emergency and hospitalization, improved screening and health education is needed. The Community Health Assessment Program through Emergency Medical Services (...
The assessment of a daily oral care lozenge (PTx800) will be compared to a placebo control in a cohort of older adults who visit adult senior centers and who also have mild to moderate gingivitis. The comparison of the pre-to post change in gum health and pathogen burdens will be measured over a 6 week period. In addition, the feasibility and acceptability of using the lozenges will be assessed in this older adult population.
This is a prospective interventional clinical study whose main objective is to determine the impact of oral hygiene guidance on the oral health status of patients with Parkinson disease
Currently, both oral and written health education make certain assumptions about the health literacy of patients and their parents. The prevalence of health literacy issues is unknown in the adult congenital heart disease (CHD) population. Having a better understanding of a patient's and/or their parents' health literacy will help us develop appropriate education and teaching tools to meet the patient's and their parents' needs.
The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of a lifestyle intervention for patients living with stable coronary artery disease (CAD). One group will receive the the intervention, and the other will receive treatment as usual (TAU). The investigators hypothesize that, compared to the TAU group, participants receiving the intervention will 1) experience greater confidence in managing their cardiac disease, as indicated by perceived self-efficacy and illness percept...
Celiac disease leads to malnutrition and secondary conditions including osteoporosis. The dietary habits of adults with untreated, undiagnosed celiac disease has not yet been observed, but presents a critical piece in understanding the effects of the disease on bone health. Objective was to evaluate differences in nutritional intake of calcium, vitamin D, and phosphorus; serologic indices of these nutrients; and bone health among adults with and without celiac disease. Cross-se...
The patients with chronic kidney disease suffer from many oral problems affecting the quality of life. The aim of our study is to assess their oral health to provide the proper management and increase their awareness
This research targets the evaluation of the impact of oral health educational programs on the gingival status and oral health related quality of life in early adolescence of the Egyptian population. Each participant will benefit from the education of the proper oral hygiene practices under the supervision and follow up of the investigator in addition to the potential improvement of his/ her oral health related quality of life.
This project tests the cost-effectiveness of two promising evidence-based health promotion/ behavior change interventions. The first intervention is the COACH Program, a revised version of the Health Enhancement Program (HEP) that has been implemented to date with older adults at multiple Senior Centers across the country (Leveille et al, 1998). The second is the web-based RealAge program which is also being implemented for older adults at multiple sites nationally and intern...
This project aims to measure the impact of a physician report card (also called an audit & feedback report) on colonoscopy performance. Endoscopists in Ontario will be randomly assigned to either receive the endoscopist report card or to no feedback. Using Ontario health administrative data, the quality of colonoscopy will be compared between those who received the report card and those who do not. The investigators will also measure the effect of receiving endoscopist report c...

The PRO Health Study is a single-center, prospective, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of streptococcus-containing supplementation in healthy adults.
Relatively few health promotion and disease prevention programs have included or targeted people with disabilities, and even fewer have focused on individuals with intellectual disabilities. The long-term objectives of the Healthy Lifestyles for People with Intellectual Disabilities Study (HLID) are to increase the health of persons with intellectual disabilities by establishing the efficacy of a health promotion program and promoting its adoption. The HLID Study is base...
NIH-Healing Experience in All Life Stressors (NIH-HEALS) is a 35 item self-report questionnaire developed by the NIH Clinical Center Pain and Palliative care. It assesses an individual's mechanisms for coping as a means to reach "healing" during life's difficult situations and/or life limiting challenges. The factorial structure of the tool has been recently re-examined with 200 patients. The three main factors are: Connection (including religious, spiritual, interpersonal), Re...
Oral complications during and after cancer treatment are common. A key role in maintaining oral health plays saliva. In the last decade numerous studies have investigated immunological biomarkers such as cytokines in saliva samples. In children, the few studies have investigated salivary cytokines (sCK) suggesting that these are associated with oral health (sCK). One study investigating sCK in adult oncology patients showed an association between Interleukin-6 (IL-6) and severi...
The lack of efficacious research-based interventions for sexual and gender minority (SGM) older adults living with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, combined with the heightened risk of cognitive impairment in this population, presents a significant public health problem. SGM older adults are at elevated risk of social isolation and experience significant barriers to healthcare access. Existing interventions for older adults with dementia have been found to be effective ...
