The primary purpose of this study was to determine if cannabinoid use decreases narcotic consumption in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
More than 100 hospital based outpatient wound centers in the USA and Puerto Rico agree to transmit structured data on all patients followed with chronic wounds and ulcers (e.g. diabetic foot ulcers, venous ulcers, pressure ulcers, arterial ulcers, surgical wounds, and traumatic wounds). Data are collected at point of care including adherence to wound care quality measures developed by the USWR as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR).
ArthritisPower is a patient research network and database (registry) to collect prospective information about demographics, self-reported diagnoses and medications, and willingness to participate in research from participants with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), spondyloarthritis (SpA), and other musculoskeletal conditions. Participants will provide information from their smartphones or personal computers. The information will be used by researchers to help patients and their providers make better, more informed decisions about treatment of RA/SpA and other musculoskeletal conditions. ArthritisPower is part of a larger national research ...
Arterial inflammation will be compared using PET scanning in 3 groups: 1) Non-smokers, 2) Tobacco cigarette smokers, 3) Electronic cigarette users.
This prospective registry was designed as an observational study to ascertain how commercially available NanoBone products are being used by surgeons performing foot and ankle surgery which involves bone grafting, as well as determining relevant patient outcomes.
A randomized withdrawal study in which responders to open-label treatment with tofacitinib will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to tofacitinib or placebo in a double-blind phase. In the double-blind phase "time to sJIA flare" will be evaluated as primary endpoint and subjects will be discontinued once they experience sJIA flare. Once 31 flares are reported the study will be completed.
There is an urgent public health need to reduce reliance on opioids for effective long-term pain management, particularly in knee osteoarthritis (KOA). This effectiveness trial will compare commonly recommended treatments to reduce pain and functional limitations in KOA.These results will lead to improved patient selection for treatment and inform evidence based guidelines by offering well-tested, effective, non-surgical alternatives.
This study represents the first trial to assess the efficacy of oral treprostinil therapy in patients with symptomatic primary or secondary Raynaud's Phenomenon (RP) resistant to vasodilatory therapy. The study will be randomized 1:1 UT-15C to placebo. The design is a crossover study and all subjects will be randomized to receive oral treprostinil sustained release tablets or matching placebo for 12 weeks and then crossover for 12 weeks. All subjects will be exposed for 12 weeks of treatment with oral UT-15C during the study.
Gout is an autoinflammatory disease characterized by flares of painful joint inflammation. This inflammation occurs in response to uric acid that crystallizes. After a gout attack, patients usually enter a period that is accompanied by low grade inflammation but is otherwise relatively asymptomatic. Gout is typically associated with certain markers, and this study is going describe specific markers in patients that are in between gout attacks. Research has been focused on studying this phase between gout attacks in hopes to manage and prevent the onset of future gout attacks. Biopsies will be taken from the affected joint and blood...
Chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS) is an unexplained multisymptom/multisystem disorder for which there are currently no validated treatments. The present exploratory clinical trial aims to advance our understand of the mechanisms of in situ GSH synthesis control through assessment of the response of brain GSH and plasma markers of oxidative stress to different doses of NAC in comparison to placebo, as a potential treatment for ME/CFS that would provide neuroprotection against oxidative stress by restoring cortical GSH reserves. If successful, this exploratory clinical trial would address a significant public...
