Use lay language. Oxaliplatin is a reference anticancer drug in the treatment of colorectal cancer. However, its use is hampered by a specific neurotoxicity, which is characterized by acute thermal hypersensitivity, notably to cold temperatures, and by chronic neuropathy appearing with the repetition of chemotherapy cycles. To this date there is no effective therapy able to prevent and/or to treat these adverse drug reactions. So oncologists are sometimes ... Read More

A prospective case-control study was performed to investigate the effect of iloprost on the intraoperative flow volume in diabetic and non-diabetic patients as well as the effect of peripheral neuropathy in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) undergoing arterial reconstruction (primary endpoint). 100 patients undergoing femoral artery reconstruction or femorodistal bypass surgery were included. Prior to surgery, peripheral nerve ... Read More

The current study proposes to investigate Point of Care Testing (POCT) (Coagcheck®) and compare obtained results versus standard laboratory coagulation parameters prothrombin time (PT) and partial thromboplastin time (PTT). The time difference in obtaining the two results will also be examined. A total of 100 pediatric patients undergoing spinal surgery or cardiopulmonary bypass will be enrolled and consented per protocol. Blood samples will be obtained ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to determine how a single dose of cyclosporin affects the pharmacokinetics (ie, how the body affects the drug) of multiple doses of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754). The safety and tolerability of canagliflozin will also be assessed in healthy volunteers. Read More

Evaluate visual outcomes and contrast sensitivity for subjects undergoing bilateral myopic LASIK with a Nexisvision Shield or bandage contact lens placed postoperatively. Early speed of visual recovery results indicate that the visual recovery in the first 4 hours after the LASIK procedure show the most variability. A patient's ability to drive after their LASIK procedure would potentially alleviate a challenge that patients often face in taking additional ... Read More

This study will evaluate the importance of arterial stiffness and wave reflections as determinants of persistent left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and fibrosis (assessed using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]) after correction of severe stenosis of the aortic valve. The hypothesis will test whether stiff arteries and increased wave reflections impede pumping of blood by the LV after aortic valve replacement (AVR)and precent adequate regression ... Read More

Primary Objective: - To assess the effects on glycemic control of lixisenatide in comparison to placebo as an add-on treatment to basal insulin with or without metformin in terms of HbA1c reduction over a period of 24 weeks in insufficiently controlled type 2 diabetic patients. Secondary Objectives: - To assess the effects of lixisenatide over 24 weeks on : - percentage of patients reaching HbA1c<7% or ≤6.5%, - 2-hour ... Read More

Objective: To assess the effect of bevacizumab on tumor vessels, and the reversibility of the effect, using contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) and histology in patients with metastatic liver tumors derived from colorectal cancer. Background Data: Direct evidence on the reversibility of any change in tumor vascularity upon bevacizumab cessation in the clinical setting is lacking. Methods: The study included 10 patients who received chemotherapy ... Read More

- A reduce in renal mass may result in remnant single nephron hyperfiltration, with associated proteinuria and an accelerated loss of kidney function. - Live-donor kidney transplantation is generally considered the best choice for patients who have renal failure and are awaiting transplantation, because these kidneys function better than kidneys from deceased donors, and waiting times for deceased-donor transplants are long ...

Foot surgery often causes severe and prolonged pain postoperatively. Prior methods of postoperative pain control included oral narcotics, single injection regional techniques and more recently continuous nerve catheters. Recent studies have demonstrated a benefit with continuous popliteal catheters when compared to single injection techniques in regards to postoperative pain control and patient satisfaction for foot surgeries. Nerve blocks in the popliteal ... Read More

Malnutrition occurs in up to 50% of patients requiring elective surgery for neoplastic diseases. It exerts a detrimental influence on outcome of surgery, because it can suppress immune function, exaggerate stress response and cause organ system dysfunction. Increased susceptibility to infection, protracted wound healing, impaired blood clotting and vessel wall fragility have been shown to be the leading causes of postoperative morbidity and mortality in ...

After implantation of an Ahmed glaucoma valve in patients with glaucoma, hyperencapsulation phase is an unwanted postoperative phenomenon, typically occurring with the free 3 months postoperatively. When this does occur, it is treated with aqueous suppressant eye drops. This study aims to determine if it is possible to reduce the rate of hyperencapsulation phase. Patients in the treatment group will receive aqueous suppressant eye drops before the ... Read More
