Although the primary organ of gas exchange is the lung, it has been recognized for some time that other organs have a potential role in gas exchange. There is emerging evidence that the gastrointestinal tract may have the capacity to act as an organ of gas exchange. Several recent studies in both animals and humans have indicated that orally administered oxygenated nanobubbles is a safe intervention that can improve tissue oxygenation. Oxygen nanobubbles can reduce the hypoxia in tumours when injected, in conjunction with sonodynamic therapy. In mice, researchers have shown a reduction in tumour hypoxia and improved response to sonodynamic therapy occurs even when the oxygen nanobubbles are orally administered. This will be an in vivo randomized, double-blinded, cross-over, placebo-controlled study consisting of rowers. By measuring the time taken by participants to complete a 2000m row after consuming an Oxygen nanobubbles drink, and a placebo drink, the investigators will evaluate the efficacy of the nanobubbles on the exercising ability of the participant.
A Dual-center , Randomized, double-blinded and Parallel-controlled Study to Assess the Pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamics, Safety and Immunogenicity of HS-20090 Injection and Xgeva® in Healthy Adults
The investigators previous pilot study showed that the brain remained activated after 3 minutes of intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS). Therefore, an open question remains that how long the effects will last and when the maximum effects will be achieved. In addition, many pioneering works showed the positive effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on working memory. Intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS) is a patterned form of rTMS, it has shown a non-inferior efficacy in depression but with a much shorter time (approximately 3 mins) than traditional rTMS (approximately 40 mins). As discussed above, this study aims to investigate the effects of prefrontal iTBS on working memory using concurrent iTBS/fNIRS and to explore the duration of the effects.
This research study is being done to provide comparative data to the Mayo Clinic Adult Congenital Heart Disease Registry.
Study to Evaluate the Safety and Immunogenicity of Recombinant HIV-1 Envelope Protein SOSIP v8.2 763 Vaccine, Adjuvanted with MPLA Liposomes, in Healthy, HIV-Uninfected Adults
The goal of this observational study is to test whether it is possible to detect particular lung sounds that are unique to patients with the lung disease pulmonary fibrosis and whether any such sounds could be analysed using machine learning to make diagnosing disease easier. Participants will have a sound detection device placed in different locations on the chest and audio sounds will be recorded for analysis. Researchers will compare audio recordings from clinically diagnosed patients with recordings from healthy controls of a similar age to see whether the sounds are sufficiently different within that age group.
The SKyRoCKeT Study (Surface-Knit and Reformulate CADENCE-Kids for Translation) will recruit a sex- and age-balanced sample of 360 young people 6-20 years of age to develop an integrative, physiologically-coherent age-cadence-log(metabolic equivalent, MET) surface-based model, reformulate the prior R21 CADENCE-Kids study (1; NCT01989104) by providing individualized, more precise, age-specific and coherent cadence-intensity thresholds, investigate additional differences by anthropometric factors, and translate cadence-intensity thresholds to over-ground walking. The SKyRoCKeT Study is an innovative critical step to provide a coherent, interpretable, objectively monitored step-based intensity metric to inform (inter)national physical activity (PA) guidelines by transforming currently vague guidelines of PA intensity into quantifiable PA recommendations that can be of widespread use, which clinicians, young people, parents, and researchers can integrate into preventive care management and action plans for personalized care. The SKyRoCKeT Study will allow for a user-friendly, interpretable metric to more accurately inform public health/behavioral interventions, assessments, analyses, school-based health and physical education curricula and programs, and public health messages for young people and their caregivers.
The human brain presents outstanding challenges to science and medicine. Brain function and structure span broad spatial scales (from single neurons to brain-wide networks) as well as temporal scales (from milliseconds to years). Currently, none of the tools available for studying the brain can fully capture its structure and function across these diverse scales - "the neuroimaging puzzle". This poses crucial limitations to understanding how the brain works, and how it is affected by numerous diseases. The central goal of this project is to expand currently available tools for non-invasive human brain imaging, to bridge critical gaps in the neuroimaging puzzle. New methodologies will be developed, focused on ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging (UHF MRI) and its combination with electroencephalography (EEG). New contrast mechanisms and technological advances enabled by UHF MRI and EEG will be explored to allow unprecedented views into the microstructure of brain regions like the thalamus, and to capture the activity of large-scale neuronal networks in the brain with high sensitivity, temporal and spatial specificity. These advances will be directly applied to address open questions in the diagnosis and treatment of essential tremor, and psychosis. In general, improved brain imaging techniques are critical for a deeper understanding of how the brain works, and to detect and characterize diseases more effectively, thereby improving clinical management and leading to a healthier population. The non-invasive characterization and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases like tremor is particularly relevant to aging modern societies.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of dairy consumption on short-term cognitive performance, subjective mood and emotions, and glycemic response in healthy children aged 9 - 14 years. The investigators hypothesize that the consumption of dairy products as a mid-morning snack will improve mood and cognitive performance in children. Furthermore, the investigators hypothesize that all dairy products consumed as a mid-morning snack will imbue more benefits on mood and cognitive performance over 2-hours compared to fruit juice or snack skipping.
