Lipoprotein Metabolism in Normal Volunteers and Patients With High Levels of Lipoproteins

We propose to investigate human in vivo lipoprotein metabolism using radiolabeled apolipoproteins on plasma lipoproteins. Paired kinetic studies using dual-labeled iodinated lipoproteins and apolipoproteins are performed in healthy volunteer controls with normal lipids and subjects with dyslipidemia under controlled metabolic conditions. Studies are designed to formulate metabolic pathways in patients …

Phase N/A

Early Detection of Cardiovascular Disease

Study Design: The investigators will conduct a prospective, single-center, observational study at the Cardiovascular Imaging Network at Queen's (CINQ, This facility allows a CEUS protocol to be conducted on the same day as the angiogram. It is anticipated that 100 participants can be recruited per month with a total …

Phase N/A

Implementation of Telemedicine for Patient With Lower Extremity Wounds

This is a clustered trial where patients identified as having lower extremity ulcers with peripheral artery disease and diabetes are given the option to be seen by specialty care providers through telemedicine vs. normal standard in person referral. The study is being conducted in rural areas where there are no …

Phase N/A

Characterization of Patients With Uncommon Presentations and/or Uncommon Diseases Associated With the Cardiovascular System

We propose to characterize the etiology and natural history of rare and uncommon diseases, both known and unknown that present with symptoms and signs associated with the risk of overt or potential cardiovascular dysfunction. We will also study rare genetic modifiers and identify novel disease mechanisms contributing to common cardiovascular …

Phase N/A

Coronary Artery Geometry and the Severity of Coronary Atherosclerosis

The angulation of the side branch take-off has been reported to influence the severity of atherosclerosis in coronary bifurcations, as larger angles have been associated with increased plaque burden. Data from computational fluid dynamics studies have confirmed this finding by demonstrating that even in the absence of alterations in the …

Project to Improve Communication About Serious Illness--Hospital Study: Pragmatic Trial (Trial 1)

OVERVIEW: This is a large pragmatic trial of the Jumpstart intervention designed to promote goals-of-care discussions for older, seriously ill, hospitalized patients. The trial recruits consecutively eligible patients from three UW Medicine hospitals. The Jumpstart Guide is a communication-priming intervention that addresses hospitalized patients' goals of care. It includes information, …

Phase N/A

Causes and Natural History of Dyslipidemias

The lipoprotein transport system is vital to the delivery of the hydrophobic fats that are carried in the aqueous environment of the blood. The lipoprotein particles that comprise this system are polydisperse and contain triglycerides, free and esterified cholesterol, phospholipids and proteins. Inborn errors in the lipoprotein transport system lead …

Phase N/A

Stella Supera Siberia

Patient will be recruiting during 1 year. Patient will be followed in the study during 2 years. Pre-operative exams are collected. Patients are asked to give their oral authorization to participate in the study by their surgeon. Patient can be included up to the next day of the intervention. Endovascular …

Phase N/A

Effect of Smoking on Pain and Atherosclerosis in Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis

The study will recruit patients with rheumatoid arthritis (age 20-60 years) at rheumatology clinics in Vstra Gtaland. All patients meeting the inclusion criteria will be informed of the study in a letter and later contacted by the study coordinator and if interested booked for a study visit at the rheumatology …

Phase N/A

HCQ for the CVD in CKD

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the most prominent cause of morbidity and mortality among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), and end stage kidney disease (ESKD). Unfortunately at the present time, the investigators do not have an effective treatment to reduce the high CVD mortality in these populations. Accelerated atherosclerosis, inflammation, …
