Influence of Fish Oil Based Intravenous Fat Emulsions on the Epidermal Barrier Function

The epidermal barrier efficacy is determined by the physicochemical properties of the epidermal lipid matrix, among which -6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) play a key role. Inversely, the -3 EFAs are not found in the epidermis. For patients receiving lipid-containing parenteral nutrition (LCPN), the improvement of the epidermal barrier through ...

Clinical Efficacy of Changing the InterStim Parameters in Patients With Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome

Purpose Primary: to demonstrate better symptoms control (pain, urinary urgency and frequency) with sacral neuromodulation (SNM) in patients with interstitial cystitis /painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS) using a stimulation frequency of 40 hertz (experimental) compared to a frequency of 14 hertz (standard). Secondary: The evaluate the efficacy of the two frequency ...

Lanreotide in the Treatment of Small Bowel Motility Disorders

The investigators hypothesize that in patients with small bowel motility disorders, Lanreotide helps in alleviating the symptoms. Lanreotide is an FDA approved medication for management of acromegaly and neuroendocrine tumors, but has never been used for treating small bowel motility disorders. However, Octreotide which is similar to Lanreotide but is ...

Remote Ischemic Conditioning in Patients With Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic relapsing inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). At the time of diagnosis it is not possible to predict the course of the disease, which can range from a few flares in a lifetime to uncontrollable disease leading to hospitalization, surgery and stoma.

Surefire Infusion System vs. Standard Microcatheter Use During Holmium-166 Radioembolization

Study design: clinical within-subject randomized controlled trial. Study population: 25 patients with unresectable, chemorefractory, liver-dominant colorectal liver metastases. Intervention: scout and therapeutic doses of holmium-166 microspheres will be administered in the left and right hepatic artery during two sequential angiography procedures on the same day. In all subjects, the use ...
