Phase I Study of Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide in Patients With Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome and Sepsis

PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study. Patients receive vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) IV over either 6 or 12 hours. Cohorts of 3 patients each receive escalating doses of VIP over either 6 or 12 hours until the maximum tolerated dose is determined. Patients are followed for 30 days.


Observational Study of Sepsis and Pneumonia to Develop Diagnostic Tests

3 interdependent aims are proposed to discover and initiate development of novel, in vitro diagnostic tests (IVD) for severe sepsis (SS) and community acquired pneumonia (CAP). Specific Aim 1: Discovery and initial development of an IVD for early diagnosis of severe sepsis. In patients with suspected sepsis, early, accurate identification ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Variation and Immune Responses After Injury

The goal of this research proposal is to identify relationships that exist between specific genetic markers, immune responses to injury and infection (sepsis), and post injury clinical outcomes. Specifically, we will investigate the clinical impact of mutations involved in the innate immune response, which likely influence host response. To accomplish ...

Phase N/A

Effect of APC and Epo on the Inflammatory Response During Sepsis

An observational study to determine the effect of APC and Epo in reducing the systemic inflammatory response during severe sepsis. Patients already prescribed either drug will be enrolled. The microcirculation of the sublingual vascular bed will be observed with a microscope to detect the alterations in the inflammatory response.

Phase N/A

Prevention of Perinatal Sepsis (PoPS): Evaluation of Chlorhexidine Wipes of Birth Canal and Newborn

We are conducting a randomized, controlled clinical trial in Soweto, South Africa to evaluate the efficacy of 0.5% chlorhexidine wipes of the birth canal during labour and of the infant at birth in reducing 1) vertical transmission of leading pathogenic bacteria from mother to child during labour and delivery, and ...


Procalcitonin in Diagnosing Bacteremia in the Emergency Department

Nowadays, a physician plays a more important role in managing patients with potential infectious complications in the emergency room. Previous studies demonstrated the importance of early and adequate anti-microbial therapy in reducing the mortality and morbidity of patients with severe sepsis. However, in one study, about 6% of clinically significant ...

Phase N/A

Regulation of Endocrine Metabolic Immune and Bioenergetic Responses in Sepsis

The objectives of this study are to examine the relationship between the severity of illness, and temporal changes in the activity of endocrine, metabolic and bioenergetic pathways, and consequent immune dysfunction in critically ill patients with sepsis and multiple organ failure in the Intensive Care Unit. This study will be ...
