This study will evaluate if there is a difference in recovery of tendon structure and mechanical properties between males and females with Achilles tendinopathy receiving exercise treatment. It will evaluate recovery of tendinopathy with exercise intervention using outcome measures for tendon structure and mechanical properties along with validated measures of muscle-tendon function and symptoms.
The purpose of this prospective clinical data-collection is to document the performance and clinical outcomes of the Vanguard™ Complete Knee System.
The purpose of this trial is to collect clinical outcomes including radiographic and CT outcomes in patients who undergo interbody spinal fusion using the EVOS Lumbar Interbody System.
This study is the extension of the double-blind study GLPG1690-CL-204 (NCT03798366). The main purpose of the study is to see how GLPG1690 is tolerated in participants with systemic sclerosis and whether there are any side effects in a long-term treatment period.
The study will assess the impact of pharmacokinetics (PK), safety and immunogenicity after switches between PF-06410293 and adalimumab and with continuous dosing with adalimumab in combination with methotrexate in subjects with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis.
The purpose of this study is to explore the possible effects Kinesio Tape may have on proprioception in individuals with patellar tendonitis. A supportive knee application, a facilitative hip application, and a combination of the two will be applied and compared. Within and between group comparisons will be drawn. Participants will report for two research sessions with 24-36 hours between. Prior to arrival, they will complete a digital Victorian Institute of Sport Assessment for Patellar Tendonitis (VISA-P) and email it to the researcher. Participants must score less than 80 (out of a possible 100) to be considered for this study. If the...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of one 5 ml leukocyte-poor platelet-rich plasma (LP-PRP) injection to the intra-articular (IA) space in comparison to one 5 ml LP-PRP injection to the IA space with the addition of 3 ml injection into the surrounding extra-articular (EA) structures for the treatment of hip OA (Kellgren Lawrence Grades 1-3). Our hypothesis is that patients receiving both IA and EA LP-PRP injections will have equivalent improvements on HOOS JR and VAS scores over a 12-month period compared to those in the active comparator group (IA LP-PRP injection).
The purpose of this study is to compare outcomes of patients with degenerative disc disease undergo lumbar spinal fusion with Stryker's Tritanium® Posterior Lumbar Cage or the UniLIF PEEK implant.
This study will determine whether patients who have been infected with the Lyme bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, and treated with antibiotics still have the bacteria alive inside them and whether it is causing their symptoms. The information from this study may serve as a basis for developing stringent diagnostic criteria for Lyme disease and the establishment of future treatment trials. Individuals in the following categories may be eligible for this study: chronic Lyme disease; chronic Lyme arthritis; seropositive control (are infected with the bacteria that causes Lyme disease but do not have disease symptoms); recovered control (have...
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a disease in which the immune system attacks the healthy cells and tissues, causing inflammation that can damage organs in the body. About 50% of SLE patients experience inflammation in the kidneys. The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness and safety of two dosing arms of ACTHar gel in treating proliferative Lupus Nephritis (LN). This study hypothesizes that both dosing arms of ACTHar are safe and effective in treating proliferative LN (Class III and IV).
