Overnight Trials With Heat Stress in Autonomic Failure Patients With Supine Hypertension

Primary autonomic failure is a neurodegenerative condition characterized by loss of efferent sympathetic function and severe baroreflex impairment. The clinical hallmark of autonomic failure is disabling orthostatic hypotension, but at least half of patients are also hypertensive while lying down. This supine hypertension can be severe and associated with end-organ ...

Phase N/A

Late-Life Stress and Inflammation

Over 18% of Americans aged 65 years and older have depression. Recent evidence suggests that there is a link between depression and inflammatory disease. This study investigates the relationship between inflammation in the brain and depression. Comparing biological and psychological differences in depressed and non-depressed people allows researchers to find ...

Examining the Effect of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder on Vascular Function and Exercise Tolerance

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a disabling psychiatric condition characterized by a persistent maladaptive reaction resulting from exposure to severe psychological stress. It has been revealed that individuals with PTSD, in addition to adverse mental health symptoms, also possess higher prevalence rates for physical comorbidities such as hypertension, obesity, diabetes, ...

Phase N/A

Neuromodulation for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

The investigators propose to use a clinical trial to test Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (TNS) to examine the efficacy of TNS as a new treatment for PTSD in veterans. Recruitment will take place at the PTSD Outpatient Clinic at the VA GLA. Study participants will be asked to complete, at most, ...

As PTSD symptoms' structure is comprised of several unique clusters which include re-experiencing, avoidance, numbing/depression and hypervigilance the investigators ...


Effect of Metadoxine on Oxidative Stress in Non-alcoholic Hepatic Steatosis

Oxidative stress is produced by imbalance between reactive oxygen species and antioxidant systems. This state is frequently associated with chronic diseases like obesity, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and hepatic steatosis. In the liver, the oxidative stress may trigger the progression of fatty liver disease, from triglyceride accumulation to inflammation, cirrhosis ...


Individual Differences in Drug Response

This study will assess a broad range of potential outcomes related to administration of a double-blinded, but FDA-approved study medication. Participants will be required to spend the night on a clinical research unit, located on the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Campus, for 4 consecutive nights (Monday - Friday). Participants will ...

Dynamic Stress Perfusion CT for Detection of Inducible Myocardial Ischemia

Rationale: Cardiac computed tomography (CT) provides accurate assessment of the coronary arteries and detects significant coronary stenosis with high diagnostic accuracy. However, the hemodynamic relevance of these stenotic lesion remains unclear, although highly relevant for clinical decision-making. Recent technical developments with third-generation dual-source CT allow to determine myocardial perfusion during ...
