Trial to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of Lenabasum in Dermatomyositis
This is a Phase 3 multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study assessing the efficacy and safety of lenabasum for the treatment of dermatomyositis. Approximately 150 subjects will be enrolled in this study at about 60 sites in North America, Europe, and Asia. The planned duration of treatment with study drug is 52 weeks.
Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Abatacept in Combination With Standard Therapy Compared to Standard Therapy Alone in Improving Disease Activity in Adults With Active Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathy
Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Abatacept subcutaneous (SC) in Combination With Standard Therapy Compared to Standard Therapy Alone in Improving Disease Activity in Adults With Active Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathy
Triathlon® Partial Knee Replacement (PKR) Outcomes Study
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the Triathlon® PKR Knee System and determine whether or not the success rate of this device is no worse than the reported success rate of similar devices.
TrueTear in Sjogren's Disease Patients
The purpose of this study is to evaluate acute tear production produced by the intranasal tear neurostimulator in participants with Sjögrens syndrome and aqueous tear deficiency. Our primary goal is to evaluate whether Sjögrens patients respond to this intervention and whether there is a baseline tear production level below which these patients do not respond.
Turmeric for Patients With Basal Joint Arthritis
The aim of this study is to assess whether the use of a commercially available nutraceutical, turmeric, is an effective option to manage pain and stiffness in patients with basal joint arthritis. To conduct a pilot Randomized Controlled Trial evaluating the impact of turmeric on basal joint arthritis.
Two Point Discrimination
SPECIFIC AIMS Pain in both youth and adults is a complex, subjective and personal experience, and remains poorly understood. One particularly perplexing dimension of some forms of pain is the tendency of pain to spread outside of an affected body site to adjacent location, and then to unaffected body sites. Such widespread pain may reflect an altered spatial tuning of somatosensory processing, such that lateral inhibition is diminished, thereby allowing pain to spread. To date, no therapies exist which are designed specifically to diminish or even reverse the spatial spread of pain. However, training in two-point discrimination holds the ...
Two Year Study With Robotic-Arm Assisted Hip Surgery.
This study will involve a quantitative assessment of prospectively collected computed tomography, radiographic and patient outcomes data from multiple centers. Specifically looking at acetabular cup placement during Total Hip Arthroplasty by either traditional or robotic-arm assisted placement.
UKA Manual Versus UKA MAKO Robotic
The purposes of this investigation is to 1) To determine if Robotic-arm assisted UKA (RA-UKA) allows for more accurate component placement than manual UKA (MI-UKA)and 2) prospectively assess the learning curve, radiographic, and clinical outcomes of use of the RIO system as it is incorporated into our clinical practice and compare it to historical data on manual UKAs and TKAs.
Ultrarunners Longitudinal TRAcking Study (ULTRA)
Health status information and physical activity level will be collected longitudinally on a large group of individuals who are ultramarathon runners at the time of enrollment to determine if very high levels of physical activity alter health risks compared with sedentary or moderately active lifestyles.
Ultrasound and CT to Measure Muscle in Hip OA
This study will examine alterations in muscle in individuals with hip osteoarthritis compared to individuals without hip arthritis. All individuals will receive imaging of their hip and low back muscles in order to compare differences between groups. The investigators hypothesize that there will be differences between groups and that these differences will be related to strength, functional, and balance impairments which will also be measured in all individuals.
