NCT ID: NCT03922113 Completed - Healthy Clinical Trials

Muscle Function After Intensive Care

Start date: September 1, 2015
Study type: Observational

Final objective of critical care is no longer only survival. The role of medical and paramedical teams should also be to restore functional capacities, autonomy and quality of life. What has been call "intensive care unit - acquired weakness" (ICU-AW) is associated to acute and long term increased mortality, prolonged ICU and hospital stay, prolonged duration of mechanical ventilation, altered quality of life in survivors and increased health-related costs. In order to target efficient secondary prevention and early rehabilitation, prompt identification of muscle weakness is crucial. Several methods, aiming to assess muscle mass, muscle strength or physical function, are described. Manual muscle testing using the Medical Research Council (MRC) scale is still the most commonly utilized tool to diagnose ICU-AW (MRC <48/60). Dynamometry is an objective alternative and one of the most accurate clinimetric tool to assess muscle strength. Literature is overflowing with insufficiently standardized dynamometry data. Using the investigator's published standardized protocol of quadriceps strength (QS) assessment, this observational study aim to describe physical performances of CC patients and thus to define the weakest ones, by comparing them to surgical and healthy subjects.

The Effect of a Botanical Plant Extract on Gut Health, Immunity and Metabolic Disorders in Healthy Adults

Start date: July 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

There is an enormous increase in diabetes mellitus worldwide, especially in developed countries. Ninety percent of diabetes cases worldwide are of Type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM) as a result of greater prevalence of sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet and rise of obesity, as well as an increasing number of elderly populations. T2DM can be attributed to relative deficiency of insulin involving insulin resistance, aberrant synthesis of hepatic glucose and progressive deterioration of pancreatic beta-cell functions resulting in chronic hyperglycaemia. A growing amount of evidence has emerged in the last several years linking various nutrients and food sources with a positive management of T2DM. In in vitro studies, various botanical extracts have been found to significantly inhibit the activity of alpha-glucosidase and alpha-amylase. The inhibition of these enzymes' activity is a rational approach in managing glucose level for borderline and T2DM sufferers as inhibition of both alpha-amylase and alpha-glucosidase activity can profoundly reduce post-prandial increase in blood plasma glucose concentration following a mixed carbohydrate intake. Excessive levels of blood plasma glucose and free fatty acids impose a stressful condition for pancreatic beta-cells and other insulin sensitive cells resulting in the local secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines causing a continuous low levels of abnormal inflammation that alter insulin's action. As the body becomes less sensitive to insulin, the resulting insulin resistance leads to further inflammation, with more inflammation causing more insulin resistance, causing blood plasma sugar levels to continuously increase, eventually resulting in T2DM. In in vitro animal models, various compounds of botanical origin have also been shown to possess anti-inflammatory activities which can be beneficial in managing T2DM.

NCT ID: NCT03920410 Recruiting - Healthy Clinical Trials

Effect of Serotonergic Stimulation on the Gut-brain Axis

Start date: April 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors increase the level of serotonin. This study will use functional magnetic resonance imaging to examine how subjects with, and without, irritable bowel syndrome patients respond to serotonergic stimulation. Brain activation during emotional and arithmetic tasks and during visceral pain will be measured after serotonergic stimulation using the oral administration of Escitalopram (20 mg). The investigators will further integrate background parameters of the irritable bowel syndrome subjects and healthy controls (such as microbiota composition, genetic markers of serotonergic and inflammatory pathways, intestinal permeability, state of mood and visceral sensitivity) with the responses to the various challenges on the level of functional brain imaging. These responses may reveal a 'footprint' of the individual gut-brain axis function. Analyses of these individual footprints in multiple subjects with and without irritable bowel syndrome may reveal biosignatures characterising certain groups of patients according to specific gut-brain signalling response patterns. These biosignatures may be used to develop an individualised treatment algorithm for irritable bowel syndrome therapy.

A Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetic Study of Tucatinib in Healthy Japanese and Caucasian Subjects

Start date: April 2019
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

This study is being done to compare the pharmacokinetics (PK) and safety/tolerability of tucatinib in healthy Japanese and Caucasian participants. Three cohorts of healthy Japanese and Caucasian men and women will be admitted to the Clinical Research Unit (CRU) and receive multiple oral doses of tucatinib over 14 days with and without food. Subjects will be in the study for up to 45 days, including the screening period. Due to practical considerations, each cohort will be dosed sequentially (this is not a dose escalation study).
