Echocardiographic Assessment of Intrapulmonary Vasodilatation: Agitated Saline Versus Polygeline

Intrapulmonary vasodilatation is a frequent finding in patients with cirrhosis. Its diagnosis is established via contrast enhanced echocardiography. One used method is the contrast agent agitated saline and another frequently used method is the contrast agent polygeline. The purpose of this study is to compare these two echocardiographic contrast agents ...

Phase

Urotensin II and Vascular Tone in Cirrhosis

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

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

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

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

Feeding Behavior and Taste Sensitivity Before and After Liver or Renal Transplantation

Background and Aims: Protein-energy malnutrition is associated to cirrhosis with a high prevalence and greatly increases the morbidity and mortality of the disease. Malnutrition results of numerous causes including intestinal malabsorption, increased energy resting expenditure, metabolism disturbances, impaired sensory taste and changes in food preferences which might participate to a ...

Phase N/A

Identification of New Biomarkers to Promote Personalized Treatment of Patients With Inflammatory Rheumatic Diseases

Introduction: The medical treatment of inflammatory rheumatic diseases has improved dramatically during the last decades primarily due to the introduction of biological disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (bDMARDs). However, bDMARD treatment failure occurs in 30-40% of patients due to lack of effectiveness or side effects. The tools to predict treatment outcomes ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Evaluation of HIV Patients Using Non-invasive Methods for Estimation of Liver Fibrosis and Steatosis

In HIV-positive patients with or without chronic viral hepatitis co-infection, the primary aims of this project are: (i) to estimate the prevalence and incidence of liver injury (including progression of fibrosis, necro-inflammatory activity and steatosis) and to report the normal values of non-invasive methods in HIV population; (ii) to validate ...

Phase N/A

Extracellular RNA Markers of Liver Disease and Cancer

The goal is to identify an extracellular RNA candidate for the detection and diagnosis of liver cancers such as hepatocellular cancer or biliary cancer, and chronic liver diseases. The use of selected exRNA biomarkers for diagnosis of hepatocellular cancer (HCC) or biliary tract cancers in patients with cirrhosis will be ...
