A Study of the Natural Progression of Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)

We propose to acquire data and blood samples on all patients being cared for by the Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) program. Additionally, we will collect data and blood samples from a control group for comparator purposes. In doing so, we will be able to describe the "phenotypic" expression of these ...

Phase N/A

HMB for Denutrition in Patients With Cirrhosis (HEPATIC)

Scientific & technical aspects State of the art: Patients with cirrhosis present a chronic inflammatory state and alterations in protein metabolism. These alterations lead to elevated levels of insulin and catecholamines along with the development of glucose intolerance and insulin resistance. The reduced availability of glucose as energy source translates ...

Phase N/A

Screening At-risk Populations for Hepatic Fibrosis With Non-invasive Markers

This protocol describes a prospective screening study at Odense University Hospital, Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. The investigators will use liver stiffness measurements with transient elastography to screen 3000 patients from at-risk populations and 1000 participants from the general population for advanced liver fibrosis. At-risk is defined as either (A) ...

Phase N/A

A Protocol of the Canadian Prospective Study for Hepatocellular Carcinoma Surveillance Using Biomarkers

This study is a prospective randomized controlled trial (RCT) comparing surveillance for hepatocellular carcinoma with ultrasound alone versus ultrasound and standard biomarkers. The study will be conducted initially at UHN (TGH and TWH). One arm will undergo surveillance for hepatocellular carcinoma using ultrasound (US) alone and the other will undergo ...

Phase N/A

Studying Patients With a Personal or Family History of Cancer Caused by a Virus

OBJECTIVES: - Conduct clinical, laboratory, and epidemiologic studies of patients with a personal or family history of viral-associated cancer. OUTLINE: Patients undergo an interview, physical examination, and blood sample collection. Other clinically indicated biological samples, such as urine, sputum, saliva, tears, or semen or cervical, anal, oral, or nasal swabs, ...

Phase N/A

Urotensin II and Vascular Tone in Cirrhosis

This study looks at the iontophoresis of urotensin II in chronic liver disease patients.

Phase N/A

Incisional Negative Pressure Wound Therapy for Preoperatively Irradiated Lower Extremity Soft Tissue Sarcoma Wounds

Postoperative surgical site infections pose a significant challenge to the orthopaedic oncologist, especially in wounds that have been previously irradiated with neo adjuvant external beam radiation therapy (EBRT). There are many studies demonstrating the relatively high risk of wound complications after lower extremity sarcoma resection. Published data suggest that these ...

Phase N/A

Determination of Kidney Function

The study of various kidney disorders will be facilitated by determinations of true glomerular filtration rate and/or effective renal plasma flow employing inulin or non-radioactive iothalamate and/or para aminohippurate (PAH), respectively. Selected patients with proteinuria will be asked to participate in studies of glomerular capillary wall permselectivity calculated from the ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation and Treatment of Patients With Connective Tissue Disease

This protocol allows for the screening and diagnosis of a broad array of patients with disorders of bone and connective tissue, and in so doing to expand our knowledge about these disorders and provide access to patients of interest for research, teaching, and clinical experience. This protocol also serves as ...

Phase N/A

Toward Self-management in ILD

Treating and caring for people with long term conditions accounts for a substantial proportion of health care resources. Self-management is advocated as a mechanism that can empower service users with long term conditions to choose healthier options and also transform the relationship between service user and caregivers from one in ...
