Testing the Effectiveness of a Modified Community Model in Improving Child Health Outcomes in Mashonaland East Zimbabwe

Seventy -four percent of these death occur at community level due to the delay in deciding to seek care . The government of Zimbabwe has intensified facility based health systems though very little has been ...

Phase N/A

Breast Cancer Lung Late Effects

This project involves repeat chest computed tomography (CT) imaging and blood draws in subjects with breast cancer with radiation treatment to the affected breast and chest wall. The investigators are studying women receiving one of 2 types of radiation, either conventional X-rays (IMRT) or protons at the University of Florida ...

Phase N/A

IgG Dependent Monocyte Activation in Proximal Venous Thromboembolism

The secondary objectives of this study include to compare the IgG-dependent monocyte activation profiles as a function of laboratory thrombophilia parameters. Essentially: Is IgG-dependent cell activation associated with the presence of anti-phospholipid antibodies (or their subtypes?), or do these profiles indicate something beyond the nosology of anti-phospholipid syndrome?

Phase N/A

Magnesium for Neonatal Neuroprotection and Mothers

Purpose Neonatal neuroprotection is a new indication for magnesium. Meta-analysis of the available literature suggests beneficial neonatal outcomes, but the direct effects on maternal health have not been studied. Unwanted effects of magnesium therapy such as sedation and respiratory insufficiency may be potentiated by neuraxial anesthesia placing the mother at ...

Phase N/A

Renal Agenesis Fetal Therapy

In fetal life, urine production by the kidneys is responsible for sustaining amniotic fluid in the uterus. This fluid is critical for fetal lung development during gestation. Complete lack of amniotic fluid, known as anhydramnios, leads to lethal pulmonary hypoplasia in 100% of patients. A common cause of complete anhydramnios ...

The CAROLE (CArdiac Related Oncologic Late Effects) Study

Background: Within the United States, there are an estimated 3.1 million women alive who have been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and approximately 56% of them have received radiation. Worldwide, there are 1.4 million diagnosed annually and, in 2012, it was the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. As patients ...

Protecting From Pneumococcus in Early Life (The PROPEL Trial)

Members of the clinical trial team will base themselves within the government run antenatal clinics at the clinical trial sites in order to identify potentially eligible pregnant women. Working closely alongside government midwifery and nursing staff they will aim to identify pregnant women who are yet to reach 34 weeks ...

Computed Tomography CT Venography During Postpartum Venous Thromboembolism

Pulmonary embolism (PE) remains a leading cause of maternal death during postpartum in developed countries; Thoracic computed tomography angiography (CTA) is the first-line diagnostic test for PE suspicion, but has a 20 to 35% rate of inconclusiveness during pregnancy and postpartum, 2 to 3 times higher than that of the ...

Phase N/A

Respiratory Depression During an Analgosedation Combining Remifentanil and Ketamine in TCI for Oocyte Retrieval

The actual protocol for conscious sedation during oocyte retrieval in at the Erasmus hospital (Brussels) consists of Remifentanil in TCI-mode, with premedication by Midazolam. However, episodes of bradypnaea with or without desaturation are still common. The primary objective is to observe if with the addition of ketamine, it is possible ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Antenatal Corticosteroids on Neonatal Morbidity.

The study will be a double blind randomised controlled trial. There will be two study groups and one control group. The first study group will be the pregnant women at risk of late preterm birth that will receive antenatal corticosteroids in the form of intramuscular dexamethasone sodium phosphate. The second ...
