An Integrative-"Omics" Study of Cardiomyopathy Patients for Diagnosis and Prognosis in China

Identification of novel biomarkers is needed to improve the diagnosis and prognosis of cardiomyopathy. Also,the marked variation of genes which is still unclear, may influence clinical outcomes is determined in part by genetic heterogeneity of the systemic response to pathological process. Specific aim: Proteomics, microRNA-seq and metabolomics will be to ...

Phase N/A

Non Syndromic Congenital Heart Defect and Array-CGH in Prenatal Diagnosis

Comparative genomic hybridization (CGH)-based microarrays are now often used during pregnancy in case of fetal polymalformation in order to assess significant genomic alterations. Up to now, in case of isolated heart defect, only fetal karyotype with FISH 22q11 was usually offered. However, micro deletions or duplications could not be identified ...

Phase N/A

The Leiden Nonischemic Cardiomyopathy Study

Rationale: Sudden cardiac death, mainly caused by ventricular arrhythmias (VA), is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM). Therapies that effectively prevent VA are lacking. Improved understanding of the substrate and mechanisms of VA in NICM may allow more effective, individualized and substrate-based therapies to be ...

Validation of a Novel Oxygen Consumption Measurement Technique in Neonates

The measurement of how much oxygen a baby consumes provides important information about the health of the baby, and of how much energy they are consuming. Currently, there is no device which measures either oxygen consumption, or another variable that depends on oxygen consumption - resting energy expenditure - in ...

Clinical and Genetic Examinations of Dilated Cardiomyopathy

Title Clinical and genetic examinations of dilated cardiomyopathy Background Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a severe disease of the heart muscle characterised by reduced pumping function and dilatation of the left ventricle without any obvious cause like hypertension, ischemic heart disease or heart valve disease. The patients often complain about shortness ...

Phase N/A

The Rhytmia System to Determine the Precise Location and Potential Mechanism of Premature Contractions

This is a purely observational study. No special methodology choice, no comparison. The study want to find the determination of precise location of the focus and mechanisms involved constitutes a challenge for conventional electrophysiology, even with tridimensional systems, because of the time needed for accurate delineation of the location (due ...

Phase N/A

Tetralogy of Fallot for Life

Background: Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is the most common cyanotic heart defect consisting of 7-10% of all congenital heart disease with an estimated annual global incidence rate of 38,000. It is fatal if untreated; only 50% of patients are alive at 1 year of age. Surgery has dramatically improved the ...

Mental Imagery Therapy for Autism (MITA) - an Early Intervention Computerized Brain Training Program for Children With ASD

Visual puzzles have been used for centuries to facilitate early development in kids. Mental Imagery Therapy for Autism (MITA) is a unique, early-intervention application for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The app includes bright, interactive puzzles designed to help children learn how to mentally integrate multiple features of an ...

Phase N/A

Registry of Cell Therapy in Non-Ischemic Dilated Cardiomyopathy

Registry will include all patients who underwent intracoronary or intramyocardial cell therapy as a part of clinical trials performed at UMC Ljubljana from January 2005 until January 2018. Patients will be followed on regular basis in a dedicated heart failure outpatient clinic, clinical data will be collected and stored in ...

Phase N/A

NOACs for Atrial Tachyarrhythmias in Congenital Heart Disease

Rationale: Adult patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) with atrial tachyarrhythmias need to be anticoagulated. It is not known whether non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOAC) in this patient group are efficient and safe. Aim: The purpose of the NOTE registry is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of NOACs ...
