Zinc as Adjunct to Treatment of Pneumonia

Community-acquired pneumonia is a common and potentially serious infection that affects children worldwide. The annual incidence of pneumonia in children younger than five years of age is 34 to 40 cases per 1000 in Europe and North America, higher than at any other time of life [1]. In developing countries, ...

Targeting Peroxisome Proliferator-activated Receptor-gamma in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients - Will it Reduce Inflammation Atherosclerosis Calcification and Improve Survival of Peritoneal Dialysis Patients?

Peritoneal dialysis patients are at increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and are related to the presence of accelerated atherosclerosis. Our recent data showed that inflammation predicts mortality and cardiovascular death, independent of other cardiovascular risk factors in peritoneal dialysis patients. As a considerable proportion of peritoneal dialysis patients ...

Phase N/A

Minimally Invasive Surgery: Using Natural Orfices

This is an observational study of pain and outcomes from females undergoing transvaginal NOTES removal of their appendix or gallbladder. Female subjects who elect to have a transvaginal NOTES removal of their appendix or gallbladder and agree to be in this study (through signature on the informed consent form) will ...

Phase N/A

Minimally Invasive Surgery: Using Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES)

This is an observational study of pain and outcomes from patients undergoing transgastric NOTES removal of their appendix or gallbladder. Subjects who elect to have a transgastric NOTES removal of their appendix or gallbladder and agree to be in this study (through signature on the informed consent form) will be ...

Phase N/A

Initial Versus Delayed Operation for Treatment of Complicated Appendicitis In Children

To determine the most cost effective way to treat children with perforated appendicitis we will randomize all children presenting with perforated appendicitis to initial operation, with in 24 hours of admission, or to initial antibiotics, with or without percutaneous drainage, and subsequent interval appendectomy after 8 weeks. Our outcomes will ...

Phase N/A

NOTES Transvaginal Cholecystectomy and Appendectomy

Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) is considered by many leading expert surgeons to be the next step in MIS (Minimally Invasive Surgery). This is a rapidly evolving area of preclinical research and several groups worldwide are developing this surgical approach together with industry support. In this new surgical technique, ...

Phase N/A

Effects on Glutamine on the Outcome of Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplant Recipients

The primary purpose of this project is to investigate if addition of glutamine, an amino acid, to standard parenteral nutrition, may improve the clinical outcome of the bone marrrow transplantation reducing the occurrence of veno-occlusive disease and severity of mucositis.

Phase N/A

Safety and Efficacy of Gardasil in Females With Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA)/Seronegative Arthritis

Each individual subject's participation is scheduled to last approximately two years. Patients will be given Gardasil injections at months 0, 2, and 6. Patients will have geometric mean titers (GMT) measured at 7, 12, and 24 months. Questionnaires about health and function will also be completed at each visit.

Phase

Vascular Risk Progression in Normal and Diabetic Control Subjects.

Cardiovascular disease remains the greatest cause of mortality in people with diabetes mellitus. This observation study will evaluate non-traditional risk factors for their contributions to vascular disease progression as determined by carotid intima media thickness and history of vascular disease events over 1 year. This study requires annual checks of ...

Phase N/A

Pilot Study to Identify the Mediators and Inflammatory Cell Surface Receptors Involved in Allergic Airway Inflammation

The production of chemotactic cytokines or chemokines by the airways is one of the mechanisms thought to be responsible for the recruitment of inflammatory cells to the airways (Makay 2001). While the chemokine receptor-ligand systems responsible for immune cell homing to the mucosal surface of the gastrointestinal tract have been ...
