Found (9) clinical trials

For the past 30 years, the laboratory of Clinical Microbiology/Immunology at The Rockefeller University has been studying Rheumatic Fever. For over one hundred years, the question of whether this disease has a genetic basis remains unresolved. In order to examine this question, we would like to contact the following: Families ...

Phase N/A

RhEumatiC Heart diseAse Genetics

There are an estimated 2.4 million children between 5 and 14 years of age affected by RF and/or RHD in developing countries of the world, approximately one million of whom live in sub-Saharan Africa (>40%) (1). A systematic review of prevalence studies found exceptionally high rates of RHD in sub-Saharan ...

Speckle Tracking for Timing of Surgical Operation in Severe Mitral Regurge

Rhumatic heart disease patients with mitral regurge untile know had adibat for timming of surgical interferance our study aim to solve this problme using a new technic in echocardiography called speckle tracking which is more accurate in estimating a changes occure to myocyte of the heart and so chosing the ...

Phase N/A

Phenomics in Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases

The family of inflammatory/autoimmune systemic diseases (IAD) represents a large group of human diseases. For most if not all of these IAD, the pathophysiological processes or exact causes remain poorly understood. Progresses in molecular understanding of these IAD have led to realize that these are not two distinct categories of ...

Phase N/A

Glucocorticoid-induced Osteoporosis in Patients With Chronic Inflammatory Rheumatic Diseases or Psoriasis

Glucocorticoids remain to be among the most important and most frequently used anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive or immune-modulatory acting drugs to treat rheumatic (and other) diseases. Unfortunately, glucocorticoids also exert undesired effects, especially if higher dosages have to be given over longer periods of time. The available data describing frequency and ...

Phase N/A

INVestIgation of rheumatiC AF Treatment Using Vitamin K Antagonists Rivaroxaban or Aspirin Studies Non-Inferiority

This program is a comprehensive evaluation of rheumatic valvular heart disease (RVHD), Atrial fibrillation (AF)/flutter and stroke. A prospective, randomized, parallel group, open-label clinical trial of rivaroxaban versus standard vitamin K antagonists (VKA) therapy to evaluate non-inferiority of rivaroxaban to VKA, with testing for superiority if non-inferiority is satisfied.


Determining the Impact of Penicillin in Latent RHD: The GOAL Trial

Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) affects at least 32.9 million people, mostly children living in low-resource settings. Long-term intramuscular benzathine penicillin G (BPG) prophylaxis is proven to prevent progression of chronic valve changes in patients with established rheumatic heart disease (RHD) and to allow regression of valve changes in patients with ...


RIvoraxaban in Mitral Stenosis

Study rationale: Since the introduction of warfarin as the main oral anticoagulation therapy in patients with MS and AF, no other drug has been replaced/suggested by any medical community for this group of patients. Warfarin is considered a drug with marginal therapeutic effect, with a need for constant monitoring, with ...


The Effect of Ramipril in Suppressing ST2 Expression in Rheumatic Mitral Stenosis Patients

Efficacy of secondary prevention is limited in the prevention of RHD progression. For this reason, new strategies and therapies are needed to prevent the progression of RHD. Neutralizing inflammatory cytokines or antagonizing their receptor function has been considered as a useful therapeutic strategy to treat autoimmune diseases. In this respect, ...
