This study seeks to correlate microbiome sequencing data with information provided by patients and their medical records regarding Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS).
This study will determine the effectiveness of a nutraceutical in treating the lingering effects of Lyme Disease after antibiotic treatment.
This is a post-market prospective, 1:1 randomized, multicenter non-inferiority study to compare the femoral broaching time for THA with the Anterior Advantage approach with KINCISE vs. without KINCISE. Follow-up will continue through 24 weeks post-op.
This is a prospective, single arm clinical study to evaluate fusion status and patient reported outcomes utilizing the Stryker Tritanium® C Anterior Cervical interbody device at one or two contiguous levels. Subjects that are recommended for surgical treatment of either a 1- or 2-level ACDF (Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion) between the levels of Cervical Spine 2 to Thoracic 1 (C2-T1) and diagnosed with degenerative disc disease will be screened for the study.
The Researchers want to assess the short-term safety of Anterior Vertebral Body Tethering (AVBT) in skeletally immature subjects with moderate to severe scoliosis and compare them with a fusion cohort.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an occlusive antimicrobial barrier dressing or portable negative pressure wound dressing is superior in preventing wound complications and infection rates in obese patients undergoing total joint arthroplasty (TJA). Approximately 240 subjects (120 for total knee arthroplasty and 120 for total hip arthroplasty) will be enrolled to evaluate the outcomes associated with silver impregnated dressings and negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in treating this subset of patients and analyze the cost benefit of each.
"This is a Phase 2 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover, multicenter study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, efficacy, Pharmacokinetics (PK) and Pharmacodynamics (PD) of treatment with KZR-616 in patients with active Polymyositis (PM) or Dermatomyositis (DM). Patients will be evaluated for eligibility during the Screening Period. Eligible patients will be randomized 1:1 to Arm A or Arm B of the study. During the 32-week treatment period, patients will receive study drug subcutaneously (SC) once weekly with 2 treatment periods of 16 weeks each. This study will be conducted on an outpatient basis.
LOU064 is an oral Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor. This study is an adaptive phase 2 study designed to establish safety and efficacy and characterize the dose-response of LOU064 in subjects with moderate to severe Sjögren's syndrome.
The objective of the current study is to assess the immunogenicity and safety of transitioning subjects with RA to DRL_RI from US-rituximab/EU-rituximab to continued treatment with US-rituximab/EU-rituximab. The primary objective of this study is to assess the immunogenicity of transitioning subjects with RA to DRL_RI (biosimilar rituximab) from US-rituximab/EU-rituximab to continued treatment with US-rituximab/EU-rituximab To assess the safety of transitioning subjects with RA to DRL_RI from US-rituximab/EU-rituximab to continued treatment with US-rituximab/EU-rituximab.
This study will examine the effect that a dose of intramuscular (IM) oxytocin (naturally occurring hormone) has on fear of pain and movement and trust in the physical therapist during outpatient rehabilitation after total knee replacement has been performed. Investigators will ask participants to answer questions about fear of pain and movement before several outpatient physical therapy session and investigators will ask participants questions about trust of the physical therapist several times after the outpatient physical therapy sessions.
