An Oral Amoxicillin-Clavulanate Regimen to Prevent Bacteremia Following Dental Procedures

Although controversy exists regarding the efficacy of antibiotic prophylaxis for patients at risk of infective endocarditis, expert committees continue to publish recommendations for antibiotic prophylactic regimens. Recently, the investigators have evaluated the efficacy of the intravenous administration of 1000/200 mg of amoxicillin/clavulanate for the prevention of bacteraemia following dental extractions. …

Automated Oxygen Control by O2matic to Patients Admitted With Acute Hypoxemia

The aim of this study is to examine if automated oxygen delivery with O2matic allows for faster weaning from oxygen supply and better oxygen control than manually controlled oxygen therapy for patients admitted to the emergency department with acute hypoxemia. Furthermore it will be tested if O2matic compared to manual …

Evolution of Lung 18FDG Uptake in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Receiving Pirfenidone

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a rare and fatal lung disease characterized by unpredictable changes with variable kinetics of progression. Changes in pulmonary function (FVC, DLCO) assessed at the time of diagnosis, or decline in pulmonary function within 12 months after diagnosis, are the best predictors of survival, but poorly …

Brain Imaging in Tobacco Smokers During a Quit Attempt

The proposed study will help fill gaps in existing research by determining if nicotine-dependent cigarette smokers show changes in 7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) availability when compared to matched historical controls using positron emission tomography (PET) imaging and the radioactive ligand [18F]-ASEM (3-(1,4-diazabicyclo[3.2.2]nonan-4-yl)-6 [18F]fluorodibenzo[b,d]thiophene 5,5-dioxide), an 7 nAChR antagonist. The …

Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Systemic Sclerosis

The purpose of this study is to determine whether a regimen of high-dose immunoablative therapy will demonstrate safety that is consistent or improved with other published regimens in SSc patients, while maintaining a treatment effect. We also hypothesize that our mechanistic studies will yield biomarkers that may herald disease recurrence …

JUUL vs. Mod E-cigarette Study

Some smokers who try e-cigarettes transition completely from cigarettes to e-cigarettes, but others continue to use both products, or abandon e-cigarettes and return completely to cigarettes. One factor that likely impacts these tobacco use patterns is the e-cigarette device used. The majority of e-cigarettes purchased today are one of two …
