Through this study, The investigator believe to evaluate the impact in terms of overall quality of life of adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced endometrial cancer at a distance from their care
Three months of balance training with follow-up 6 and 12 months thereafter.
This study aims to investigate how knowledge of gluten immunogenic peptide (GIP) levels in stool and urine affects subsequent adherence to a gluten-free diet. Half of the participants will receive results in real-time using a home device and the other half will store samples to be tested at the end of the 30 week study. Participants will also have a diet review with a dietitian at the beginning of the end of their study and be asked questions about their symptoms, gluten-free diet adherence and quality of life.
A single-center, observational, prospective, two dynamic cohorts study with before-after design. Group 1: Treatment with 6 sessions using dry needling with DNHS® (Dry Needling for Hypertonicity and Spasticity) on the spastic muscles of the affected arm in patients with stroke plus standard physiotherapy treatment. Group 2: Standard physiotherapy treatment. Spasticity will be assessed by Modifying Modified Ashworth Scale (MMAS), functionality with the Fugl-Meyer scale for the upper limb, motor recovery with Brunnstrom Stages Scale (BSS) and upper limb spasticity pattern (ULP), pain by 10-points Numerical Rating Scale (NRS10) and the quality of life with the Euro QoL 5D 5L survey. In both groups the valuations will be made following the same schedule.
Decreased muscle mass (sarcopenia) and strength (dynapenia) are common during aging, with a rate of muscle mass loss that is approximately 6% per decade between 30 and 70 years of age. Muscle mass loss results in reduced strength and physical function (frailty), increased risk for falls and bone fractures, and decreased quality of life. The age-related decrease in testosterone plays a key role in the loss of muscle mass and strength for aging males. There is increasing interest in nutritional and exercise strategies to prevent aging-related losses in muscle mass and strength. Sexual dysfunction has a high prevalence among men (31%), and include erectile difficulties (10%), lack of interest in sex (9%), and inability to achieve orgasm (7%). There are multiple causes including low testosterone. There is growing interest in natural supplements, and this study will compare under double blind procedures two natural supplements with placebo (Men's Perfect Multi Formula and Andro Vitality) that have been formulated by Purity Products. The supplements contain micronutrients, plant extracts, and herbs, with the primary bioactives Rhaponticum carthamoides and magnesium. Rhaponticum carthamoides, commonly known as maral root or Russian leuzea, is a perennial herb that grows in South Siberia, and has been used to enhance muscular and sexual function, but more evidence from properly designed human trials is needed to determine both efficacy and safety. The purpose of this study using a randomized, parallel group design, is to evaluate the effect of two supplements relative to placebo on strength, serum free and total testosterone levels, sexual function, mood state, and quality of life compared to placebo over a 6-week period in 120 males.
Exploration of abdominal pain post sleeve gastrectomy in morbid obese patients
To date it is unknown how physical activity levels in adults is limited before and after lumbar spine surgery and if physical activity level is associated with disability and limitations of quality of life. The main objective is to compare physical activity preoperatively and 6 and 12 weeks postoperatively in patients undergoing lumbar spine surgery with norm data. In addition, we will study the association of changes in physical activity, disability and quality of live.
This randomized controlled study evaluates the effect of home biofeedback compared to pelvic floor physical therapy for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence. Half of the participants will use a home biofeedback device for 3 months and the other half will attend pelvic floor physical therapy appointments for 3 months.
Dental caries (tooth decay) is the most prevalent childhood disease in the world. Multiple interventions are available to treat and prevent caries. The aim of the proposed study is to compare the benefit of silver diamine fluoride (SDF) and fluoride varnish versus fluoride varnish and glass ionomer sealants. This study is a five-year, cluster randomized, pragmatic controlled trial conducted in public elementary schools in New York City.
In dentistry, one of the most common surgical procedures is the removal of included third molars. This surgery generates great morbidity to patients for causing pain, edema and trismus due to surgical trauma. The use of photobiomodulation (PBM) (low-power laser or light emitting diode - LED) in the postoperative of these procedures has shown excellent results in the control of postoperative sequelae. The objective of the present study is to evaluate the effectiveness of PBM with LED in the control of pain, facial edema, trismus and quality of life resulting from the extraction of retained lower third molars. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial involving 34 adult patients, who search the Discipline of Buccomaxillofacial Surgery and Traumatology (CTBMF) II of FO-UFRGS for the removal of included lower third molars will be conducted. Before and after the surgeries, the facial and mouth opening measurements of all patients will be done. Immediately after the surgeries, the patients will be randomized by means of envelopes in two groups. In the LED group the patients will receive daily LED applications (intra oral with 660nm and extra oral with 850nm) from the immediate postoperative to 7 days after the surgical procedure. In the control group the patients will be treated in the same way as in the LED group, however, the person in charge of the application will simulate intraoral and extraoral irradiation with the LED kept off. Pain (EVA and NRS-101), postoperative edema, trismus, temperature, dysphagia and hematomas, as well as the impact of the surgical procedure on patients' quality of life will be evaluated after 1, 2, 5 and 7 days. For the analysis of the oral health impact profile (OHIP-14 Questionnaire) and anxiety analysis (Beck anxiety inventory -BAI) the questionnaires will be applied preoperatively and 7 days after treatment. Initial descriptive analyzes will be performed considering all variables measured in the study, both quantitative (mean and standard deviation) and qualitative (frequencies and percentages). Later, the appropriate statistical tests will be applied for each specific analysis. In all tests, the significance level of 5% probability or the corresponding p-value will be adopted. All analyzes will be performed using the statistical software SAS for Windows, version 9.1.3.
