Evaluation of Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease Education Literature

Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease that results in joint inflammation, pain and swelling. It may progress to advance stages that render patients unable to carry out their daily activities. It also results in joints deformity and is a leading cause of disability globally. Patient education plays an important role in the management of disease. Adequate patient ...

Autologous Tolerogenic Dendritic Cells for Treatment of Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis

Tolerogenic dendritic cell (tDC)-based clinical trials for the treatment of autoimmune diseases are now a reality.

The general objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a single intra...

A Specification Clinical Application Research of Tripterygium Wilfordii Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that results in a chronic inflammatory disorder that may affect many synovial joints, and may cause serious disability. It has been confirmed that Tripterygium Wilfordii has effects of anti-inflammatory, immunosuppressive and cartilage protection. This is a multicenter ,double Blind, randomized study to evaluated the effica...

Inspiratory Muscle Therapy in Subjects With Fontan Circulations

Individuals who have undergone the Fontan procedure are uniquely dependent upon respiratory mechanics to support pulmonary blood flow (PBF). The investigators hypothesized that enhanced respiratory muscle function via inspiratory muscle training (IMT) would improve performance on cardiopulmonary exercise stress testing (CPET).

Efficacy, Safety and Immunogenicity of Enerceptan Compared to Enbrel in Rheumatoid Arthritis

The purpose of this study is to asses the compared efficacy, safety and immunogenicity of ENERCEPTAN® with ENBREL® in combination with Methotrexate for the treatment of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Active Bodysuits for Adult Degenerative Scoliosis

Adult degenerative (de novo) scoliosis (ADS) is a condition of the ageing population caused by degenerative changes without pre-existing spinal deformity. Pain is the most frequent problem, especially low back pain and radicular pain, and seriously affects the daily activities and health of ADS patients. The current treatment for ADS is not well defined. The main interventi...

Trial of Posture Correction Girdle for Adolescents With Early Scoliosis

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a prevalent chronic condition that gradually leads to the three dimensional deformity of the spine. Spine curvature increases in youths as puberty progresses. Generally, only observation is suggested for adolescents with early scoliosis (Cobb's angle ≤ 20°). Rigid brace treatment is too draconian for them due to the high correctiv...

Stromal Vascular Fraction Cell Therapy to Improve the Repair of Rotator Cuff Tears

Rotator cuff disease is one of the most prevalent musculoskeletal conditions across the world. Patients with chronic rotator cuff tears often have substantial muscle atrophy and fatty infiltration. Surgical repair of the tear does not reverse the atrophy, and many patients continue to experience weakness, pain, and a persistent reduction in the quality of life. An important...

The Value of Orencia in Rapidly Progressing Rheumatoid Arthritis

The purpose of this study is to investigate the value of Orencia in rapidly progressing Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).

Adult Scoliosis Correction by Bipolar Mini-invasive Assembly Without Graft

The objective of the study will be to estimate the correction obtained with a metallic instrumentation, by mini-invasive technique with bipolar assembly and ilio-sacred EUROS ®) screw , without transplant at the adult as compared to that obtained with the surgery with complete exhibition of the rachis and bone graft.

Effects of Bladder Training and Pelvic Floor Muscle Training on the Symptomatology of Overactive Bladder Syndrome

The question is whether vesical training and TMAP can be used in isolation without treatment of overactive bladder syndrome? ALSO will be evaluated in urinary symptoms, a function of the MAP, a quality of life and a satisfaction of the women with the treatment offered.

Brace Weaning Protocol Comparing Gradual and Immediate Weaning

This is a non-blinded, randomized controlled trial for testing two brace weaning protocols namely immediate removal of brace or gradual weaning of brace over a course of 6 months for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients. These patients will have follow-up visits at 6-month and 12-month intervals. By comparing between the two groups in terms of change of Cobb angle...

Ultrasound in Psoriatic Arthritis Treatment

BACKGROUND Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a systemic inflammatory disease with articular and extra-articular features. Establishing the prognosis of a patient with PsA is hence important to define the treatment strategy. Currently, observational and prospective cohort studies have identified prognostic factors correlating with the achievement of therapeutic response. Neverthe...

Clinical Assessment of a Motorized Spinal Distraction Rod in the Severe to Early Scoliosis Child

The purpose of this biomedical research is to evaluate the feasibility of the treatment with the new spinal distraction device ASTS in patients aged 4 to 10 years with severe early onset scoliosis. The hypothesis of this project is that the new fully implantable motorized spinal distraction device may provide a correction of scoliosis and progressive elongation ensuring pa...

Ultrasound Guided Versus Landmark Guided Small & Medium Joint Arthrocentesis

Arthrocentesis is the removal of synovial fluid for analysis of pathologic processes. Small & medium joint arthrocentesis will be defined as the following joints: elbow, wrist, finger, ankle and toe. Ultrasound (US) and landmark (LM) small & medium joint arthrocentesis are both performed within the clinical setting. Both techniques are considered standard of care. Selection...

MCJR Joint Replacement Clinical Outcomes Database

The purpose of this research study is to develop a database of information regarding the diagnosis, treatment, and outcome of participants who have had a joint replacement. The more information gathered, the better the investigators will be able to treat future patients who need a joint replacement. For example the investigators learn what works well to help design implants...

Pre and post-operative CT scans will be reviewed and analysis with previously proven metrics will be performed.

Sensory Mapping of Lumbar Facet Joint Pain

Low back pain is a major contributor to the chronic pain burden in the community. Although there are numerous pain generators in the spine, lumbar facet joints are one of the most common sources of pain.
