There are about 113941 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in United States. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
This study is designed to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) and safety of multiple doses of PBI-4050 combined with midazolam in healthy adult subjects.
This study is a 24-week crossover design study in adolescents enrolled in the 6-8th grade within the Center School District in the Kansas City, MO. This school will begin their 'Breakfast in the Classroom' program during the fall 2018 school year. Baseline data will be collected to include anthropometric measures, participant characteristics, and past eating habits. For the first 8 weeks, the students will be provided with breakfast meals containing the USDA nutrition requirements. These meals are typically higher in carbohydrates and lower in protein. For the second 8 weeks, the students will be provided with higher-protein breakfast meals. These meals also contain the USDA nutrition requirements but include high-quality protein-rich foods. For the remaining 8 weeks, the students will be provided both types of meals and will be permitted to choose which they prefer to consume each day. At the end of each 8-week period, eating habits, appetite, mood, cognitive performance, and anthropometrics will be completed along with measurements of breakfast waste.
The purpose of this study is to compare a short, behavioral treatment for insomnia with sleep monitoring to determine whether these approaches are effective in reducing insomnia and improving sleep quality among patients with heart failure (HF). This study will also examine the relationship between insomnia and cognitive functioning in HF and the effects of the behavioral treatment on cognitive functioning, self-care, distress, HF symptoms, and functional status. Participants will be randomly assigned to four-sessions of a behavioral treatment (Brief Behavioral Treatment for Insomnia; BBTI) or sleep monitoring.
This study will be a randomized cross-over design over the course of 2 academic years. 40 subjects -20 overweight women and 20 over weight men will be recruited. Each subject will have body composition tested, blood lipid profile, and resting metabolic rate done in the beginning of the first academic year and at the end of the first academic year. The intervention group will receive activity trackers, diet counseling, and fitness counseling for one academic year. The second year, all outcome measures (a body scan, blood lipid profile, and resting metabolic rate) will be performed again at the start of the academic year 2, except the intervention group will now be the control group and the control group will now receive the same intervention. All final outcome measures will be performed at the end of the second year.
Hyponatremia is defined as sodium below the normal range of 135-145. Symptomatically, it can cause patients to experience a wide range of symptoms including lethargy, headache, nausea, vomiting and in severe cases coma and even death. The goal of this study is to prospectively compare two approaches to the postoperative fluid management of patients undergoing transsphenoidal resection of a pituitary tumor or cyst to decrease the occurrence of postoperative delayed hyponatremia. One group will be placed on moderate fluid restriction and the other group will be placed on ad lib fluid intake.
To further test the effectiveness of oxytocin in heavy drinkers, half of the cohort in the proposed study will meet criteria for heavy drinking (>35 standard drinks/week [men], >28 standard drinks/week [women] for at least 4 consecutive weeks). However, the investigators think it important to expand the cohort of the proposed study to include subjects with moderate Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) who meet lower drinking criteria so the outcome of the study will be relevant to a larger percentage of individuals who have AUD. The lower drinking criteria will be minimum of 14 drinks/week (women) or 21 drinks/week (men) with an average of at least two heavy drinking days (≥5 standard drinks for men and ≥4 standard drinks for women) each week in the 4-week period prior to screening. As in the R21-funded Preliminary Study, individuals recruited from the community who meet study criteria based on assessment during a screening clinic visit will be randomized to twice a day (BID) intranasal oxytocin or intranasal placebo during a subsequent clinic visit. After instruction by research staff during the randomization clinic visit, subjects will self-administer intranasal treatments from blind-labeled spray bottles that they take home. During clinic visits at 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 weeks after randomization, drinking since the last visit will be quantified and other measures summarized above will be obtained. Subjects will self-administer test intranasal treatments for 12 weeks. Drinking will also be quantified during clinic visits at 6 and 12 weeks after cessation of intranasal treatments. This clinical trial will be the first adequately powered, double blind, placebo-controlled trial examining the efficacy and tolerability of BID intranasal oxytocin (40 IU/dose; 80 IU/d) on alcohol drinking in AUD. The trial will also be the first to prospectively examine the effects of intranasal oxytocin on anxiety symptoms in individuals with AUD.
This research study is studying several new investigational drug combinations as a possible treatment for follicular lymphoma. The drugs involved are: - Rituximab - Utomilumab - Avelumab
The study will examine urinary sodium excretion induced by psychological stress and its diurnal pattern as a novel biological mechanism that may underlie an abnormal diurnal pattern of blood pressure. The study will test the hypotheses that lower stress-induced sodium excretion is associated with an abnormal diurnal pattern of sodium excretion, and that an abnormal diurnal pattern of sodium excretion is associated with an abnormal diurnal pattern of blood pressure. Primary Aim 1: To examine the association between urinary sodium excretion after provoked psychological stress and the diurnal pattern of sodium excretion. Primary Aim 2: To examine the association between the diurnal pattern of sodium excretion and the diurnal pattern of BP. Secondary Aim: To examine whether the association between urinary sodium excretion after provoked stress and the diurnal pattern of sodium excretion is modified by ecological momentary levels of perceived stress, experienced during the daytime period. Exploratory Aim: To determine the socio-demographic, behavioral, and psychological traits, chronic stress, and biological stress-related factors that are associated with lower stress-induced sodium excretion. Identification of these factors will help determine who is at risk for having a differential sodium excretion response to psychological stress.
This research study involves an investigational product: Ad-RTS-hIL-12 given with veledimex for production of human IL-12. IL-12 is a protein that can improve the body's natural response to disease by enhancing the ability of the immune system to kill tumor cells and may interfere with blood flow to the tumor. Nivolumab is an antibody (a kind of human protein) that is being tested to see if it will allow the body's immune system to work against glioblastoma tumors. Opdivo (Nivolumab) is currently FDA approved in the United States for melanoma (a type of skin cancer), non-small cell lung cancer, renal cell cancer (a type of kidney cancer), Hodgkin's lymphoma but is not approved in glioblastoma. Nivolumab may help your immune system detect and attack cancer cells. Ad-RTS-hIL-12 and veledimex will be given in combination with Nivolumab to enhance the IL-12 mediated effect observed to date. The main purpose of this substudy is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a single tumoral injection of Ad-RTS-hIL-12 given with oral veledimex in combination with nivolumab.
The purpose of this study is to examine, in healthy controls, whether LED lighting that has a color spectrum similar to that of sunlight is able to differentially impact mood, circadian rhythms, sleep, and behavior, as compared to standard fluorescent lighting.
