NCT ID: NCT05200715 Recruiting - Uveitis Clinical Trials

AutoInflammatory Disease Alliance Registry (AIDA)

Start date: August 6, 2020
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

Autoinflammatory diseases (AID) are clinical entities characterized by recurrent inflammatory attacks in absence of infection, neoplasm or deregulation of the adaptive immune system. Among them, hereditary periodic syndromes, also known as monogenic AID, represent the prototype of this disease group, caused by mutations in genes involved in the regulation of innate immunity, inflammation and cell death. Based on recent experimental acquisitions in the field of monogenic AID, several immunologic disorders have been reclassified as polygenic/multifactorial AID, sharing pathogenetic and clinical features with hereditary periodic fevers. This has paved the way to new treatment targets for patients suffering from rare diseases of unknown origin, including Behçet's disease, Still disease, Schnitzler's disease, PFAPA (periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis and cervical adenitis) syndrome, chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO), non-infectious uveitis and scleritis. Gathering information on such rare conditions is made difficult by the small number of patients, along with the difficulty of obtaining an accurate diagnosis in non-specialized clinical settings. In this context, the AIDA project promotes international collaboration among clinical centres to develop a permanent registry aimed at collecting demographic, genetic, clinical and therapeutic data of patients affected by monogenic and polygenic AID, in order to expand the current knowledge of these rare conditions.

NCT ID: NCT05161611 Recruiting - Serum Bilirubin Clinical Trials

Effect of Oral Zinc Sulfate on Jaundice in Neonates Admitted to Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Start date: December 17, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Start date: July 1, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

In patients initiating Liraglutide for weight management, the objective is to compare the effect of Med diet, high protein/low carbohydrate (HP/LC) diet and low fat (LF) control diet on CV parameters, namely arterial stiffness, measured by carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV), and visceral adipose tissue, in addition to other metabolic indicators.

NCT ID: NCT04945291 Recruiting - Weight Loss Clinical Trials

Calories Counting Using an App for Weight Loss

Start date: June 16, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This research aims to measure anew way of calories counting using a mobile app on weight loss and adherence to the mobile app. The participants should be adults who is overweight or obese and should have a smartphone with access to the internet. The participants will fill a baseline survey, take the height and weight measurements, watch a video about the use of the calories counting and app. A follow up visit will be in 4 weeks to take the height and weight measurements and fill a questionnaire. There is an option for the participants to continue with the research for additional 11 months with visit at 3, 6 and 12 months.

NCT ID: NCT04942808 Recruiting - Periimplantitis Clinical Trials

A Study of the Crestal Bone Loss Around Bone Level Versus Tissue Level Implants in Non-compliant Patients With Healthy or Reduced Periodontium After 5-8 Years in Function

Start date: June 1, 2021
Study type: Observational

The goal is to evaluate, after 5 to 8 years, the marginal bone loss around tissue-level implants and bone-level implants in patients who have not followed the maintenance program. Medical records of patients who have been implanted for at least 5 to 8 years and who have been lost during this period are collected from three private clinics in Beirut,Lebanon and the Saint Joseph University Health Center in Beirut,Lebanon. On an individual sheet, the patient as well as the implants data will be noted. Patients will be called for reevaluation after 5-8 years. After signing the informed consent, the measurements by a PCP-15 probe of the plaque index (FMPS) and the bleeding index (FMBS) as well as the height of the keratinized tissue are indicated on the sheet. If the smoking status has changed, this will be mentioned too. The marginal bone loss will be measured on the X-rays taken immediately after the implant placement, after 1 year of loading and then at the reevaluation session.

NCT ID: NCT04938089 Enrolling by invitation - Smoking Clinical Trials

Effect of Periodontal Maintenance Therapy on Tooth Loss in Regular and Irregular Compliant Smokers and Non-Smokers: A Cohort Retrospective Analysis With a Follow-up Up to 40 Years

Start date: November 2021
Study type: Observational

Periodontal diseases are infections cause by dental plaque (Socransky, 1970). Risk factors are present which modify the course of disease progression. One of these risk factors is tobacco smoking, which was first evaluated by Pindborg in 1947 and later by Grossi et al. in 1995. They found that tobacco smoking was strongly associated with attachment loss, bone loss, and lastly, tooth loss. Tooth loss in one of the most visible results of periodontal disease, which negatively affects physiological and psychological patient's life. The effects of cigarette smoking on periodontal status are independent of the plaque index and oral hygiene of the patient, due to the direct influence of tobacco on periodontal tissues. Several studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of periodontal therapy in reducing the rate of tooth loss as well as the importance of patient compliance with periodontal maintenance therapy and adequate oral hygiene practice in achieving this reduction. Compliance is the main problem faced in periodontal maintenance therapy. Low rates of compliance and patient adherence to a maintenance program was reported in the literature. Periodontal maintenance therapy can be considered a critical factor for success in controlling periodontitis and in the long-term maintenance of teeth. In addition, neglecting a regular periodontal maintenance therapy program has been associated with increased risk of reinfection and progression of periodontitis, as well as increased tooth loss. The establishment of a criteria for time interval between different supportive periodontal maintenance visits, is still controversial. Smokers are associated with low level of compliance to prevent being constantly reminded of quitting smoking as well as the health complications associated with the habit. There is a void in the literature addressing the direct influence of compliance and adherence in periodontal maintenance therapy and its contribution to arrest periodontitis progression, minimizing tooth loss, specifically in tobacco smoking patients, whether they are regular or irregular compliant with a long term follow-up up to 40 years. On the other hand, there is moderate scientific evidence that the independent effect of smoking is associated with the occurrence of tooth loss in individuals undergoing periodontal maintenance therapy. Lastly, only very few studies reported the specific outcome of periodontal maintenance therapy on tooth loss in regular and irregular compliant smokers compared to regular and irregular compliant non-smokers. The focused question in this study is "Does periodontal maintenance therapy affect annual tooth loss rates differently in regular and irregular compliant smokers and non-smokers?".
