Genetics and Markers of Degenerative and Inflammatory Eye Diseases

Objective: This project will study epigenetic mechanisms, the inheritance of (both Mendelian and complex) and biomarkers of Immune Mediated Eye Diseases, in families of many nationalities and ethnic backgrounds in order to identify the genes that, when genetically mutated or epigenetically regulated, cause immune mediated eye disease, and the pathophysiology ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Statin Therapy on C-Reactive Protein Levels in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (COPD)

Patients with chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) have an ongoing systemic inflammation, which can be assessed by measuring C-reactive protein (CRP). CRP is found to be a strong and independent predictor of future COPD outcomes. Statins are a class of cholesterol lowering drugs that decrease mortality from cardiovascular disease and ...

Phase

MR Histologic And EM Imaging Of Intravenous Ferumoxytol In Central Nervous System (CNS) Inflammation

Subjects are recruited as patients in one of the neurology, neurosurgery, neuro-oncology, Multiple Sclerosis Clinic or cardiothoracic surgery clinics at OHSU. Eligible subjects will be enrolled in different groups based on their disease (MS, cardiac surgery or CNS vascular surgery, stroke). Subsequently a MRI and MRA of the brain using ...

Phase

PET/CT Imaging of Aneurysm Wall Inflammation

Rationale: Aneurysm development, progression and rupture are characterised by extensive inflammation, dominated by the infiltration of T-cells, B-cells and macrophages. Recent studies into the pathophysiology of aneurysm wall degradation suggest a close relation between increased mechanical stress and the local activation of infiltrated lymphocytes and macrophages. The non-invasive detection of ...

Phase N/A

Removal of Endotracheal Tube Secretions Comprehensively Until Extubation

Thirty mechanically ventilated adult patients will be managed with standard suction catheters. Just prior to extubation, their physiological parameters (including work of breathing) will be recorded and acoustic reflectometry used to measure the degree of secretion accumulation within the endotracheal tube. The endotracheal tubes will then be cleaned using the ...

Phase

Followup of Glenoid Fix Utilizing Auto Bone Graft in Shoulder Replacement

This is a case study to evaluate the adequacy of fixation and functional outcome of the glenoid anchor peg following autologous bone grafting around the prosthesis at the time of implant.

Phase N/A

Study on Laparoscopic Operation for Perforated Appendicitis

The role of laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) for perforated appendicitis is under investigation. According to the results of a previous retrospective study conducted in Far-Eastern Memorial Hospital comparing the clinical outcomes between perforated appendicitis patients treated by laparoscopic and open approach showed favored clinical outcomes for LA. Same as a few ...

Phase N/A

A Multi-Center Study of Rehabilitation to Stable Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Patients

This is a multi-center prospective follow-up study.More than 20 hospitals participate the research. More than 300 stable COPD patients will be recruited.It is a two-year study. There are four groups, cycling and walking group(C-WG),cycling and non-walking group(C-nonWG),walking and walking group(W-WG),walking and non-walking group(W-nonWG). 1. All patients from four groups will ...

Phase N/A

Hypertonic Saline for Outpatient Bronchiolitis

In Santiago, Chile, a near collapse of health services is a notorious feature of every winter when vast numbers of small children line for attention because of respiratory distress caused by a probable RSV infection. Our study will examine if nebulized salbutamol diluted in hypertonic (3%), instead of normal (0.9%) ...

Phase

The Effect of Sitagliptin on Hypertension Arterial Stiffness Oxidative Stress and Inflammation

Background: Recently, a new category of hypoglycemic therapy has emerged, aimed to modulate the incretin system in diabetic patients. Compared to other drugs that induce insulin secretion, these agents do not cause hypoglycemia. However, until now the differential effects of incretin modulators and the classical insulin inducers on hypettension, arterial ...
