Prevention of Tuberculosis in Prisons

Despite being a known disease of mankind over 9000 years, tuberculosis (TB) is still a major public health problem in developing countries, mainly due to so-called highly endemic sites, such as prisons. It is Infectious disease, with airborne transmission, TB can present both the active or latent form. Despite the ...

Effects of Hormonal Anabolic Deficiency and Neurovascular Alterations on Mortality in Male Patients With Heart Failure

One hundred and fifty six patients have been enrolled so far. Methods were as described below Muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) was directly recorded from the peroneal nerve using the microneurography technique ; All patients underwent symptom-limited cardiopulmonary exercise test performed on a cycle ergometer, using a ramp protocol with ...

Phase N/A

Propylene Glycol/Glycerol Intake and Cardiorespiratory Function

Background. Propylene glycol/Glycerol intake is increasingly popular. The propylene glycol/glycerol intake effects on cardiorespiratory function are unknown. Weaning of propylene glycol/glycerol could allows a quick clearance of propylene glycol/glycerol from the body, with subsequent recovery of cardiorespiratory function. Specific aim of the research. This research proposal tests the following hypothesis ...

Phase N/A

Association Between Testosterone Levels and COPD Severity

The Aims of the study are estimate the association between the severity of COPD and free testosterone level and the prevalence of hypogonadism in adult men with stable COPD

Phase N/A

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Job Exposures Study

A case-control study to investigate whether job exposures are an under-recognized cause of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) using an interview to collect information about previous jobs and a blood test to investigate genetic susceptibility.

Phase N/A

Biological Markers for Professional COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a frequent disease, mainly linked to tobacco smoking leading to chronic respiratory failure. It is characterized by an inflammatory spate with modification of protease-antiprotease and oxidant-antioxydant balances. Local modifications are associated with systemic changes. Many occupational factors have been associated with an excess of ...

Efficacy of Weekly Rifapentine and Isoniazid for Tuberculosis Prevention

Tuberculosis (TB) remains the most important infectious disease in the world. Preventive treatment plays an important role in successful control of TB. For preventive therapy, the three-month (12-dose) regimen of weekly rifapentine and isoniazid (3RPT/INH) are now recommended by WHO for its non-inferiority, safety and convenience compared with 6~9 months ...

Regional Lung Imaging Using Hyperpolarized Xenon Gas

Currently, the gold standard for assessment of lung function in chronic respiratory disease is spirometry. This is combined with anatomical imaging (chest x-ray and computed tomography) for structural assessment. Spirometry only measures global lung function. It provides no information regarding the different regions of the lung or about the supporting ...

Lung Protective Ventilation During Robotic Assisted Prostatectomy

Protocol Summary Purpose: The project will investigate whether a suspected lung protective ventilator therapy in connection with surgery for cancer of the prostate (prostate) have a relevant beneficial effects on lung function, renal function and circulation associated with keyhole surgery performed with surgical robot. Trial method: The trial is a ...

Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB) Pumps and Blood Activation

Blood activation induced by cardiopulmonary bypass may compromise the postoperative outcome. The goal of this study is to compare blood activation induced by cardiopulmonary bypass performed with centrifugal pump or roller pump in patients undergoing coronary artery surgery.
