There has been very little investigation into the management of pain from 2nd trimester termination of pregnancy or unexpected fetal loss. The standard of practice in North America is usually intravenous patient controlled analgesia (IV PCA), using a narcotic wuch as fentanyl. The goal of this study is to compare the quality of recovery after termination of pregnancy using fentanyl IV PCA or patient controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA), a standard of care ... Read More

This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II trials test the effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific cancer. "Investigational" means that drug is still being studied and that research doctors are trying to find out more about it-such as the safest dose to use, the side effects it may cause, and if the drug is effective for treating different types of cancer. It also means that the FDA has ... Read More

STA9090 is a drug which inactivates or blocks the work of a protein called Heat Shock Protein 90 or HSP90. HSP90 is a protein that helps some molecules inside your cells to have the right shape. By stopping HSP90's activity, those molecules never get to have the right structure of be functional and they are destroyed. The investigators believe that if they stop the activity of HSP90, the rapidly dividing cells that are in your tumor(s) may slow down. In this ... Read More

Background: Poor wound healing and the development of surgical site infection (SSI) continue to occur and remain a significant cause of disability among operated patients. In spite of the substantial advances in our understanding of the epidemiology, pathogenesis and prevention it remains one of the most common complications in conventional abdominal surgery with an incidence in the literature between 4% and 17%. As it is known that surgical sutures ... Read More

The fact that dental caries remains a major public health problem mandates that oral-health researchers explore new strategies for assessment of caries risk, as well as for caries prevention and management. Dental caries occurs when acids produced by bacterial glycolysis of dietary carbohydrates causes demineralization of the tooth enamel. A major focus of caries research has been on identifying and characterizing acid-generating bacteria and the mechanisms ... Read More

Chronic renal failure is a syndrome that renal function is decreased, and the patient number is increasing. In addition, patients on dialysis have also increased. Depending on the chronic renal failure aggravated, the deterioration of life caused by the conduct of dialysis patients is caused. In addition, a problem in dialysis treatment is ongoing economic burden surface to increase the life of the patient and family. A solution to this problem is, or stops ... Read More

The current guidelines still recommend emergent PCI of the culprit lesion and state that primary PCI should be limited to the culprit vessel with the exception of cardiogenic shock and persistent ischaemia after PCI of the supposed culprit lesion. This recommendation is based on a high number of studies. However, several studies are present about the safety and efficacy of non-culprit vessel PCI during acute MI. Nowadays, the debate is increasingly going on ... Read More

This study is focused on comparing patients' pain scores on a visual analogue scale (VAS) and the difference in analgesics use post-operatively (with the same prescription defining only the maximum frequency) between lidocaine with epinephrine & bupivacaine with epinephrine as local anesthetics in wide-awake hand surgery. The investigators' hypothesis states that a longer acting local anesthetic agent (bupivacaine) would be able to provide better ... Read More

The aim of the study is to evaluate whether walking capacity in patients with intermittent claudication is improved more by home-based 5+ exercise training than by current recommendations of daily walking. The study will elucidate if such a potential effect is dependent on changes in mitochondrial respiratory capacity, blood flow or both. Read More
