Epicardial Delivery of XC001 Gene Therapy for Refractory Angina Coronary Treatment (The EXACT Trial)

This is a Phase 1/2, first-in-human, multicenter, open-label, single arm dose escalation trial of XC001. Approximately 12 subjects (N=3 per cohort) who have refractory angina will be enrolled into 4 ascending dose groups, followed by an expansion of the highest tolerated dose with 17 additional subjects.

Bright Light Therapy in the Treatment of Non-seasonal Bipolar Depression

Bipolar disorder (BD) is a severe brain disorder characterized by the recurrence of mood episodes. Patients presenting with BD spend more time with depressive symptoms than with manic ones, which have a major impact on the quality of life and is associated with poorer outcomes including recurrences and suicide. In ...


The Effects of Kynurenine Aminotransferase Inhibition in People With Schizophrenia

The purpose of the study is to examine whether high dose N-acetylcysteine (NAC) blocks the adverse effects of increased kynurenic acid (KYNA) on selected measures of brain chemistry, function and behavior, through the inhibition of kynurenine aminotransferase (KAT) II, which converts kynurenine to KYNA. The study will be a double-blind, ...


Siltuximab in Schizophrenia

A pathophysiological role for inflammation in schizophrenia has been one of the more enduring findings in the field. Recently, increased understanding of complex interactions between inflammation and the brain in other chronic diseases has better informed this relationship in schizophrenia. Several trials have found that treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ...


D-serine Augmentation of Neuroplasticity

Schizophrenia (Sz) is a major public health problem associated with core cognitive deficits that are amongst the strongest predictors of impaired functional outcome. In addition, Sz patients show reduced cortical neuroplasticity, defined as reduced learning during training on exercises that place implicit, increasing demands on early auditory information processing. As ...


Ocrelizumab for Psychosis by Autoimmunity

Some people who have what doctors currently call schizophrenia or bipolar disease may actually have a brain disease caused by auto-antibodies. Auto-antibodies are produced when the normal defense mechanism of the body goes wrong and begins to attack the body, similar to "friendly fire." Auto-antibodies attack brain receptors and then ...


Cromoglycate Adjunctive Therapy for Outpatients With Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia (SZ) extracts a heavy personal and public health cost, primarily because there is no effective treatment. Though many drugs are currently available, the majority provide only partial relief for psychotic phenomena and none guarantee more than modest relief for 'negative symptoms' or for cognitive impairments. The Investigators must search ...


Cooking for Health Optimization With Patients

Cooking for Health Optimization with Patients (CHOP) is the first known multi-site prospective cohort study with a nested Bayesian adaptive randomized trial in the preventive cardiology field of culinary medicine. It is also the first known longitudinal study to assess the impact of hands-on cooking and nutrition education on patient ...


Active Preoperative Anemia Management in Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

Anemia and transfusion are independent predictors of morbidity and mortality in the cardiac surgical patient population. Even so, active preoperative anemia management is not currently the standard of care at our institution. Cost associated with erythrocyte transfusions at University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) University Hospitals exceeds twenty million dollars annually, ...


Can Imagination Change Upsetting Memories of Trauma?

Research suggests that imagination is a powerful tool to change images inside our heads (e.g. memories) and make them less upsetting. It is thought that this occurs through changing the meaning attached to the memory (e.g. I am weak), therefore making it less upsetting to remember. Research has also linked ...
