Phase N/A

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an inflammatory disease of the esophagus, characterized by eosinophilic infiltration and gastrointestinal symptoms. Swallowed, topically acting corticosteroids, such as fluticasone, appear to be effective in resolving acute clinical and pathological features of EoE. APT-1011 is an orally disintegrating tablet (ODT) formulation of fluticasone propionate. This study ...

Phase

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) Oncology Registry

Participating centers will need to describe its own mechanism for patient identification and eligibility screening. A data manager, identified by the Principal Investigator at each participating center, will screen all patients for eligibility. Appointment, diagnosis and treatment data will be reviewed using information such as clinic records, appointment lists, pathology ...

Reducing Dysphagia Associated With Anterior Cervical Spine Surgery by Maintaining Low Endotracheal Tube Cuff Pressure

Post-operative dysphagia is a well-documented complication of anterior cervical spine surgery (ACSS) with an estimated risk of 30 - 50% that patients will experience some degree of post-operative swallowing dysfunction. While symptoms often subside within 6 months the impact of swallowing difficulties may be far reaching within the health-care system. ...

Efficacy of Voice Treatment for Parkinson's Disease

This is a research project designed to look at various areas of function, such as speech, voice, swallowing, related communication behaviors and body movement of individuals with idiopathic Parkinson disease (PD) and to investigate how two different forms of speech therapy affect these areas. We are asking up to 620 ...

Phase

Sonographic Assessment of Laryngeal Elevation

Dysphagia is a common problem in rehabilitation medicine. To accurately evaluate its disorder is crucial in managing this group patient. Videofluoroscopic examination of swallow (VFSS) is generally regarded as the “gold standard” in the assessment of oropharyngeal dysphagia, especially in the detection of laryngeal penetration or subglottic aspiration. However, its ...

Prospective Interventional Study Evaluating the Feasibility and Safety of the Esophageal Cooling Device

Controlling patient's body temperature, and in particular, reducing body temperature in a treatment referred to as targeted temperature management, has been shown to improve outcomes for many conditions, including neonatal hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, cardiac arrest, and traumatic brain injury. However, available modalities for inducing targeted temperature management have a number ...
