The Boston Scientific ACCESS trial seeks to study the safety and to evaluate the success of the Fusion™ Vascular Access Graft for patients in need of early vascular access for hemodialysis.
Childhood obesity has increased in prevalence over the past several decades and is predictive of adult type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Recent studies of children and youth suggest that exercise reduces cardiometabolic risk factors. Minimal data are available, however, on the effects of "exergaming" , interactive technology- mediated approaches to increasing physical activity in children and youth. This project involves a partnership between UMass Boston/GoK...
To determine whether the Boston Scientific nitinol drug-eluting stent shows acceptable performance at 9 months when treating Superficial Femoral (SFA) and/or Proximal Popliteal Artery (PPA) lesions.
This study is designed to evaluate the effect of pacing on post-MI patients.
The purpose of this study is to follow a cohort of HIV-infected adults who have alcohol and/or drug use to: 1) test the associations between alcohol (and illicit drugs and polypharmacy (multiple prescribed medications)) and falls (fractures secondarily), and whether frailty mediates these associations; and 2) test the associations between alcohol (and illicit drugs and polypharmacy) and utilization (emergency department use and hospitalization for falls and fractures), and whet...
Early life exposures may lead to adverse effects on health in later life. The Boston birth Cohort study is designed to study a broad array of early life factors and their effects on pregnancy, infancy, and child health outcomes.
This is a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized, exploratory, single-arm study characterize the effects of programming spinal cord stimulation (SCS) in patients undergoing a Boston Scientific (BSC) spinal cord stimulation (SCS) temporary trial
The primary objective is to characterize the programming effects of Boston Scientific Vercise™ PC System using the DBS Directional Lead for bilateral STN DBS for the treatment of Parkinson's disease in acute and chronic settings.
Boston Medical Center provides care to cancer patients on oral cancer medications through the use of Boston Medical Center Specialty Pharmacy (BMC SP). The use of oral medications in cancer treatments is relatively new and unfortunately, very little is known about adherence in cancer patients. This study will evaluate the influence of a pharmacist-driven medication management program on adherence and persistence rates. Boston Medical Center's Specialty Pharmacy Adherence Progra...
The ARGOS-IO pressure sensor is intended to be implanted in the human eye in combination with Boston Keratoprosthesis (BKPro) surgery and to remain in place indefinitely. It is intended to be used together with the hand-held Mesograph reading device to telemetrically measure the intraocular pressure (IOP) of patients with a BKPro. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of the ARGOS-IO system in patients undergoing concomitant implantation of a BKPr...
The main purpose of this study is to look at relationships between types of flu viruses and characteristics of infected patients, including vaccination status, organ system involvement, and disease severity. In this study, 500 patients with respiratory illnesses will have nose/throat fluid samples collected. At Children's Hospital Boston, patients 30 days to 5 years of age will be recruited; at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, patients of any age will be eligible. The rese...
This application is to obtain approval for clinical use of the Fenix, a Humanitarian Use Device. The Fenix device was just approved by the FDA as a Humanitarian Exempt Device for fecal incontinence. It has only been utilized in small numbers in Europe. There was a previous device produced by American Medical Systems, who sold their artificial bowel sphincter to Boston Scientific. Boston Scientific has elected to not continue the manufacturing of the artificial bowel sphincter. ...
The objective of the study is to characterize the relationship between select objective metrics and clinical outcomes in chronic pain patients treated with Boston Scientific commercially approved neurostimulation systems.
This clinical study is a prospective, non-randomized, multicenter study to demonstrate the acceptable safety and performance of angioplasty with the Ranger DCB in native femoropopliteal artery lesions. It is intended that all patients with qualifying lesions would be considered for enrollment and treated with the Ranger DCB catheter. Approximately 123 patients with femoropopliteal artery lesions will be enrolled. All lesions will be treated with the Ranger DCB. Up to 15 clinica...
The study is a blinded cross over test of in-home air filtration. Participants will have a window unit air filter (HEPA) installed that will filter for 3 weeks and do sham filtration for another 3 weeks. During the time that the filter is installed in the home a machine that measures particulate air pollution of the type that the filter is designed to remove will be installed. A survey will be administered, blood samples taken and blood pressure measured immediately prior to st...
The purpose of this study is to establish the safety and long-term effectiveness of coronary stenting with the ABT 578-eluting balloon expandable stent (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN) vs. the sirolimus-eluting balloon expandable stent (Cordis Johnson & Johnson, Warren, New Jersey) and the paclitaxel-eluting stent (Taxus liberte, Boston Scientific) for the treatment of coronary stenosis in routine clinical practice.
A Pilot Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Refined Methods to Mitigate Indoor Allergens in North Carolina and Boston, Massachusetts Homes
The trial has the following primary objective: To compare the safety and effectiveness of primary acute MI intervention with ABT 578-eluting balloon expandable stent (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN) vs. sirolimus-eluting balloon expandable stent (Cordis Johnson & Johnson, Warren, New Jersey) vs. paclitaxel-eluting stent (Taxus Liberte, Boston Scientific).
Oxycodone is an oral opioid analgesic that is most commonly prescribed for the management of pain in post-operative patients at Boston Children's Hospital. Oxycodone has been widely used in adults and children to relieve post-operative pain. However, its pharmacokinetics (what it does in the body) and pharmacodynamics (how it works) have not been well established in children. Some children, because of their specific genetic make-up, may metabolize the drug more quickly and ther...
The purpose of the SPIRIT IV Clinical Trial is to continue to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the XIENCE V® Everolimus Eluting Coronary Stent System (XIENCE V®). The XIENCE V® arm will be compared to an active control, represented by the FDA-approved TAXUS® EXPRESS2™ Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System (TAXUS®), commercially available from Boston Scientific. TAXUS® EXPRESS2™ Paclitaxel Eluting Coronary Stent System is manufactured by Boston Scientific.
The Boston Keratoprosthesis type I (KPro) is a prosthetic cornea used to treat several causes of corneal blindness. Some categories of patients, including those with auto-immune diseases such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis syndrome and mucous membrane pemphigoid, have a higher risk of failure for the KPro. Because of chronic inflammation, the cornea supporting the KPro may melt, leading to a higher risk of infection, loss of the KPro and loss of the eye...
