This is a prospective, real-world observational study in which patients with RA who are initiating treatment with a JAK inhibitor medication will self-report disease activity and treatment satisfaction measures using their own web-enabled device such as a smartphone. Secondary objectives include analyzing the epidemiology and natural history of the disease, its comorbidities, and current treatment practices.
The study will assess whether patients of providers participating in Project ECHO for ILD experience reduced stress, including financial stress, based on their ability to receive timely and local care and services, The study will employ nested mixed-method design at baseline, at 6 months and at 12 months to answer the study question.
The purpose of this study is to assess the degree of improvement seen patient reported outcomes after 30 sessions of UVA-1 therapy in treating systemic scleroderma, morphea, and sclerodermatous Graft-Versus-Host Disease. While patients have verbally reported improvement of their sclerosing skin disease with UVA-1, patient reported outcomes have not been rigorously studied. In sclerosing skin diseases where clinical change is difficult to measure, patient reported outcomes may offer a better way to study the impact of treatments like UVA-1. This will be a non-blinded, non-randomized prospective trial using UVA-1 phototherapy in ...
The purpose of this study is to collect data needed to satisfy the European Union (EU) Medical Device Regulation (MDR) clinical post-market surveillance (PMS) and reporting requirements, and to support future regulatory submissions and peer-reviewed publications on device performance and safety.
The goal of this study is to find an effective treatment for chronic patellar tendinopathy (PT). Investigators will conduct a 32-week randomized controlled clinical trial to determine whether platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections improve disease-specific clinical outcomes with correlation to a new method of ultrasound (US) imaging assessment called Acoustoelastography (AE). Positive findings of PRP compared to control would suggest future larger scale studies to help establish an optimal protocol for the nonsurgical management of PT.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of occipito-cervico-thoracic spine surgery using posterior fixation as measured by reported complications, radiographic outcomes, and patients reported outcomes (PROs).This study is being undertaken to identify possible residual risks and to clarify mid-to long-term clinical performance that may affect the benefit/risk ratio of posterior fixation systems.
Sponsor is conducting this post market clinical follow-up (PMCF) study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of its EVOLUTION® Revision CCK Tibia and EVOLUTION® Revision CCK Femur with EVOLUTION® CCK Tibial inserts. These type of studies are required by regulatory authorities for all devices that have been approved in Europe (EU) to evaluate the medium and long term clinical evidence. This study has been designed in accordance with MEDDEV2.12/2 rev 2 (European Medical Device Vigilance System) and ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 14155:2011 guidelines.
MicroPort Orthopedics Inc. (MPO) plans to market the EVOLUTION® NitrX™ Non-Porous Keeled Tibia and EVOLUTION® NitrX™ CS/CR Non-Porous Femur with the EVOLUTION® Cruciate Sacrificing (CS) Tibial Insert globally, including in the European Union (EU). MPO is conducting this post market clinical follow-up (PMCF) study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the EVOLUTION® NitrX™ Non-Porous Keeled Tibia and EVOLUTION® NitrX™ CS/CR Non-Porous Femur. These components are used along with the EVOLUTION® Cruciate Sacrificing (CS) Tibial Insert components that is marketed in the European Union (EU). This type of data collection is required...
This will be an open label, prospective study to determine the association between specific genotypes, epigenetics and behavioral factors, with the phenotypes, defined by pain perception, postoperative pain, analgesic and side effect responses to perioperative opioids, chronic postoperative pain and gene expression in adolescents following major spine surgery.
This study aims to combine multi-center data of robotic assisted spine surgery, to evaluate the true scope of this advancing technology.
