Part A will randomly compare three different doses of botulinum toxin type A (abobotulinumtoxin A) for the treatment of upper anterior gummy smile with larger gingival exposure (> 4 mm). Part B will assign one of two doses of botulinum toxin type A for participants with smaller gingival exposure (< 4 mm). Follow-up visits with photography will occu...
Black young men who have sex with men (BYMSM) are at high risk for contracting and transmitting HIV, and represent a priority population for developing effective interventions. Within the House Ball community (HBC), a clandestine subculture of the Black gay community, HIV is highly stigmatized. This stigma, coupled with high HIV prevalence rates and elevated levels of undiagnosed/untreated HIV infection, places BYMSM in HBCs at incredible risk for HIV infection. Community-level...
Adults with asthma living in Chicago's West and Southwest side who completed the home-based Community Health Worker (CHW) intervention called Helping Chicago's Westside Adults Breathe and Thrive (HCWABT I) after October 2015 were eligible to participate in a randomized control trial called HCWABT II, which will evaluate the long-term impact of the intervention on their asthma control, asthma severity, healthcare use, and asthma-related quality of life. Participants are randomly...
In an earlier Phase 1/2 clinical trial using the Edmonton Protocol of steroid free immunosuppression, investigators at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) demonstrated the safety of islet preparation, iset transplantation, and medical treatment at UIC. Therefore, the primary purpose of the present Phase 3 clinical trial is to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of allogeneic islet transplantation in improving glycemic control in Type 1 diabetic patients using the UIC protoc...
This cluster randomized trial will test the affect of individual participation in culturally- and socially-related activities on health and well-being, in comparison also with the classic individual determinant, in relation to urban renovation schemes. Investigators will using a questionnaire based on several areas such as individual psychological well-being (PGWBI), individual happiness positioning (Keyes Scale) and health status perception (SF-12 Health Survey).

This assessment is carried out by in situ multiparametric study with multiple immunofluorescence staining for cluster of differentiation 3, cluster of differentiation 4, cluster of differentiation 8, PROGRAMMED DEATH-1, PROGRAMMED DEATH-L1, PROGRAMMED DEATH-L2,...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety of triptorelin when used for the protection of the ovaries (pair of female reproductive organs) during cyclophosphamide therapy for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE; lupus) and to see what effects (good or bad) it has on patients. The study will be done with female patients who have been diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus, are younger than 21 years of age, and require intravenous cyclophosphamide to control the disease....

A detailed review was made of data pertinent to the occurrence of chronic Chagas disease in the United States.
Plasmodium falciparum malaria is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in tropical and sub-tropical areas worldwide. Repeated P. falciparum infections in endemic areas induce protective immunity, thus providing optimism that an effective malaria vaccine can be developed. Key to the development of such a vaccine is an understanding of the immune mechanisms underlying protection and the longevity of these responses in the absence of continuous P. falciparum exposure. Anecdotal...
African American women account for 66% of HIV infections in women in the U.S., AIDS is a leading cause of death for African American women, and African Americans have the lowest medication adherence rates compared to other groups in the U.S. One of the reasons for low medication adherence among African Americans is fear of stigma. HIV stigma has been linked to depression, psychological distress, poor quality of life, poor medication adherence and service utilization contributin...
