The purpose of the study is to acquire kinematic in vivo fluoroscopy data from subjects who were implanted with Stryker Posterior Cruciate Retaining (PCR) , Stryker Posterior Stabilized (PS), Zimmer PCR, and Zimmer PS Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKAs). Our lab has previously collected data for the Smith & Nephew PCR, bi-cruciate retaining (BCR), and bi-cruciate stabilized (BCS) TKA.
The purpose of this study is to identify potential markers for curve progression in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Despite its prevalence and impact on child health, the etiology of AIS and molecular mechanisms underlying its development and progression remain poorly understood. Clinical criteria and features cannot adequately predict which children, diagnosed with mild disease, will undergo subsequent curve progression requiring intervention. The investigators hypothesize that alterations in specific genetic markers will be correlated with the progression of AIS curves over time. Thus, these markers could be used in the...
The purpose of this study is to determine the dose effect of a single injectable acellular amniotic membrane derived allograft for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis and to confirm whether the use of 2 mL of the same amniotic injection offers a statistically significant advantage over the 1 mL injection when compared to a placebo.
The main purpose of this clinical study is to evaluate a 6-valent OspA-based Lyme disease vaccine (VLA15) for prevention of Lyme disease within North America and Europe. Approximately 18,000 healthy participants 5 years and older will be recruited from areas with high levels of endemic Lyme disease to receive VLA15 or placebo (an inactive substance consisting of saltwater). Each participant will have about a 50% chance of receiving VLA15 and about a 50% chance of receiving placebo. A subset of participants will receive VLA15 from 3 different lots or placebo (1:1:1:3 ratio) to assess lot equivalence. Participants will receive a...
Spondylolysis, a stress fracture in the pars interarticularis of a lumbar vertebra, is the most common identifiable cause of low back pain (LBP) in adolescent athletes, occurring in 14-30% of athletes who experience LBP. Spondylolysis can cause significant pain and disability and months of exclusion from sports or an active lifestyle. Standard care of spondylolysis in adolescent athletes is primarily based on expert opinion, with dramatic variations in clinical practice, including restrictive bracing, extended rest periods before the intervention, long durations out of sport and activity, and suboptimal long-term clinical outcomes....
The purpose of this Phase IIa study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of ALLN-346 in subjects with hyperuricemia.
This clinical study will assess the metal concentrations present in the blood serum of patients who receive surgical treatment with the PRESTIGE LP™ Cervical Disc at two contiguous cervical levels from C3-C7. The information obtained from this clinical investigation will be used to support the post market surveillance for a PMA supplement for the PRESTIGE LP™ Cervical Disc implanted at two contiguous levels.
The purpose of this study is to examine the long-term safety of Abatacept for the treatment of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) with particular in interest in the occurrence of serious infections, autoimmune disorders, and malignancies.
Primary Objective: To evaluate the relative risk of major structural birth defects, specifically a pattern of anomalies, in sarilumab-exposed pregnancies compared to disease-matched unexposed pregnancies. Secondary Objective: To evaluate the risk for sarilumab-exposure relative to the group of healthy pregnant women, and the effect of exposure on other adverse pregnancy and infants outcomes.
This study seeks to correlate microbiome sequencing data with information provided by patients and their medical records regarding Lyme Disease
