Osteoarthritis (OA) represents a significant cause of disability worldwide and the knee is the most commonly affected joint. Oxytocin (OT) is a mediator of endogenous analgesia in animal and human studies. This proposal will test the efficacy and safety of self-administered intranasal OT over 4-weeks in older individuals relative to placebo (P) evaluating its effects on pain and function in aging and testing potential underlying neurobiological mechanisms.
The purpose of this study is to measure arterial 99mTc-Tilmanocept uptake using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT/CT) scanning in HIV infected subjects known to have subclinical coronary atherosclerosis as assessed by contrast-enhanced coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA).
This is a Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) study. The purpose of this research study is to determine in RA flare, whether musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) inflammatory scores and/or disease activity scores improve with Acthar treatment.
The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical efficacy of a novel dynamic compression intramedullary nail for tibiotalocalcaneal (TTC) arthrodesis.
This study will investigate if mindfulness training via a smartphone mobile app is effective in improving OA-related knee pain.
The purpose of this study is to allow patients to undergo surgery with the SR™ MCP (Metacarpophalangeal) Implants for finger arthritis. This is NOT a research study, but rather, a requirement by the FDA for humanitarian use of device.
This will be a multi-center, prospective, single-blinded randomized clinical trial to investigate the effectiveness of using cooled radiofrequency ablation (CRFA) for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) hip pain and function in subjects treated with CRFA compared with standard of care intra-articular steroid injections
This will be a single-center, prospective, single-blinded randomized clinical trial to investigate the effectiveness of using cooled RFA for the treatment of OA hip pain and function in subjects treated with cooled RFA compared with standard of care intra-articular steroid injections
The primary objective of this study is to assess the overall safety and general tolerability of extended release triamcinolone acetate (TA-ER/FX006) in patient with rotator cuff disease. The study will enroll 65 patients, aged 40-75 years old, in a longitudinal case series level IV study using extended release triamcinolone to treat shoulder pain from rotator cuff disease. Inclusion criteria will be shoulder pain without a history of trauma and physical exam consistent with rotator cuff tendinitis, impingement syndrome or rotator cuff tear.
Interferential Current Therapy (IFC) is a form of electrical therapy that utilizes two simultaneous low frequency electrical stimulation which when they cross interfere with one another resulting in an interference or beat frequency. This beat frequency provides a therapeutic area of relief by blocking painful stimuli at the area of interest. IFC is different from the other electrical treatment modalities used because the cancellation effect allows for establishment of the treatment area to be in the deeper tissues of the body, whereas other electrical modalities can only be used to treat superficial body parts that lie just under the...
