Rituximab Versus Cyclophosphamide in Connective Tissue Disease-ILD

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is characterised by inflammation and scarring of the lung and is the leading cause of death in patients with systemic sclerosis, and contributes significantly to morbidity and mortality in many other connective tissue diseases (CTDs) such as polymyositis/dermatomyositis and mixed connective tissue disease. When ILD is ...

New Orleans Pulmonary Hypertension Biobank

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a serious condition characterized by a mean pulmonary artery pressure >=25mmHg on right heart catheterization (RHC). Despite advances in PH care, outcomes are still sub-optimal and further research is required into the pathobiology of the disease and development of biomarkers that can guide clinical care. The ...

Complex Aortic Aneurysm Repair Using Physician Modified Endografts and Custom Made Devices

Endovascular repair of complex aortic aneurysms is limited by the need to maintain blood flow to the critical organs that receive blood from the aorta, such as the kidneys, liver and intestines. While there are some commercially available devices that may treat some of these patients these devices may not ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Small Fiber Neuropathy in Rare Diseases Using Sudoscan

Small fiber polyneuropathy (SFPN) is diagnosed through a combination of symptoms, signs and confirmatory diagnostic testing. Nerve conduction studies are not sensitive enough in most of the cases leaving the ankle skin biopsy with measurement of intraepidermal nerve fiber density (IENFD) as the main diagnostic tool. Despite its utility and ...

Angiotensin II Receptor Blockade in Vascular Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (ARCADE)

vEDS is a rare life-threatening inherited condition due to mutations at the COL3A1 gene encoding the pro-alpha 1 chain of type III procollagen (OMIM #130050) with unpredictable and recurring arterial dissections/aneurysms starting in the early adulthood. The investigators have previously shown that a treatment with 200-400 mg per day of ...

Characteristics and Disease Progression of Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system produces antibodies against the body's healthy cells and tissues. These antibodies, called autoantibodies, contribute to the inflammation of various parts of the body and can cause damage to organs and tissues. Mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) is ...

Phase N/A

Pathogenetic Basis of Aortopathy and Aortic Valve Disease

Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is a type of aortopathy describing dilation of the proximal aortic dimensions including the aortic root, which is a risk factor for aortic dissection and sudden cardiac death. TAA and other forms of aortopathy (e.g. aortic tortuosity or aortic hypoplasia/stenosis) develop in the presence or absence ...

Phase N/A

Trial to Evaluate the Sirolimus-Eluting Collagen Implant on AV Fistula Outcomes

The objective of this study is to evaluate efficacy and safety outcomes following use of the Sirolimus-eluting Collagen Implant (SeCI) in subjects undergoing surgical creation of an AV fistula for vascular access (index procedure). Following successful creation of the AV fistula, the cohort randomized to the treatment group will receive ...

Concentration and Attentional Deficits in POTS and Other Autonomic Neuropathies

People with POTS, autoimmune autonomic neuropathy (AAN), pure autonomic failure (PAF), SFN and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) do not only suffer from orthostatic symptoms such as dizziness, headache, neck pain, blurred vision or (pre-) syncope. They also experience deficits in attention and concentration (more precisely deficits in selective perspective, operating ...

Phase N/A

Two Point Discrimination

STUDY DESIGN Prior to commencing this investigation, investigators will optimize the tactile discrimination threshold testing (i.e. as per baseline visit, below), and the training conditions, in up to ten participants (patients and/or healthy controls). This will serve as a pilot to refine operational aspects of study procedures before investigators commence ...
