According to one embodiment, such client programs may, for example, be downloaded and installed over the network. Further, these ...
Given a potentially huge set of candidate criteria, our goal is to help users choose the most appropriate criteria from among the candidates. In this work, we assume that the candidate criteria exist in some document(s) in a given repository, either separately from different documents or together in the same document, and our technical objective is to rank these candidates according to their appropriateness to the task at hand. As mentioned previously, such task would be to put together a clinical trial protocol about some particular disease, treatment, or drug.. To provide a concrete idea of our problem, the following is a snippet of a clinical trial protocol, downloaded from the clinical trials website http://www.clinicaltrials.gov, and modified for presentation as an example. It shows the title, the objective of the clinical trial as well as the inclusion and exclusion criteria.. Title: Antioxidant Systems and Age-Related Macular Degeneration Objective:. The objective of this study is to ...

Moderna has just announced that its RNA based vaccine is starting a phase 3 clinical trial with 30,000 subjects, so I thought it might be useful to take a look at the publicly available information about the trial, and how they got there. Lets go logically and chronologically and start with the phase 1 safety study. The Phase 1 study A phase 1 study is a safety study. They usually have relatively few subjects, and different doses are given because dosing in terms of side effects is usually an important endpoint in a safety study. Here is the Brief Summary of the Phase 1 study published by Moderna Brief Summary: This is a phase I, open-label, dose-ranging clinical trial in males and non-pregnant females, starting at 18 years of age, inclusive, who are in good health and meet all eligibility criteria. This clinical trial is designed to assess the safety, reactogenicity, and immunogenicity of mRNA-1273 manufactured by ModernaTX, Inc. mRNA-1273 is a novel lipid nanoparticle (LNP)-encapsulated mRNA-based
Self-monitoring of blood glucose in patients with diabetes has traditionally been considered to be a pillar of diabetes self-care. Scientific examinations of SMBG in T2DM have provided mixed results. An early epidemiological evaluation of the issue using a retrospective, longitudinal analysis showed that nonfatal micro- and macrovascular event rates along with fatal event rates were lower in individuals performing SMBG routinely as compared to those who were not [3]. A multitude of clinical trials followed. Several showed a significant benefit from SMBG testing on improving glycemic control [4-7], while others found no evidence of benefit [16]. In fact, some studies even suggested harm from routine SMBG in patients with T2DM, specifically, higher rates of depression and increased cost without accompanying benefits [31].. Given these mixed results, a series of meta-analyses and systematic reviews were conducted to investigate the benefit or lack thereof of SMBG on glycemic lowering in patients ...
Discussion. We found that ACPAP simplified and facilitated the effective management of patients at intermediate risk of adverse cardiac events at our hospital. Two-thirds of patients assessed with ACPAP were reclassified as low risk and discharged early a mean of 14 hours after presentation, allowing early return to work and normal activities; 1% of these patients had cardiac events (all elective revascularisations) by six-month follow-up, compared with 19% of high-risk patients. We have identified no missed AMIs since adopting the protocol. However, a low rate of missed AMI depends on the willingness of emergency staff to enrol patients with both typical and atypical symptoms in the protocol, particularly the elderly and those with diabetes, whose presentations are often atypical or even silent.. A limitation of the study was that it was a clinical audit and not a prospective controlled trial of differing strategies in managing chest pain. However, although observational, our study had ...

The WHO Regional Office for Europe is revising five clinical protocols on treatment of and care for people with HIV and AIDS, which were part of the 13 protocols set combined in one volume in 2007.. The protocols are the cornerstone of the strategic actions that WHO has taken as part of its contribution to ensure universal access to treatment and care for people living with HIV and to comprehensively address their health problems, including preventing and treating co-infections and co-morbidities - one of the six priority areas of the European Action Plan for HIV/AIDS 2012-2015.. Addressing the diverse capacity of the countries in the WHO European Region to implement recommendations, the revised protocols provide preferable, alternative and acceptable options which allow countries to choose appropriate recommendations depending on the available resources. Five revised clinical protocols are envisaged for publication this year.. ...
The condition of effectiveness is not fully fulfilled - the new unified clinical protocol was developed based on evidentiary medicine, however the focus is made on the compliance with clinical efficacy without due consideration of the economic aspect. For example, in cases when resistance profile is not known (for a term of 2 months), it is economically more advantageous to start treatment with more expensive and more effective treatment regimen, as not only the cost of medication should be accounted but the cost of a patients stay in a hospital as well (which includes not only material costs but also psychological challenge for a patient to be apart from his/her usual social environment for a long time). Another example: according with WHO recommendations, for diagnosis with molecular DNA tests, there should be developed extended criteria regarding the patients who must undergo such tests; however, such criteria in the applicable unified clinical protocol are essentially restricted (article ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Best Practices in Evaluating Novel Biomarker Fit for Purpose and Translatability. AU - Baker, Amanda F. PY - 2016/1/1. Y1 - 2016/1/1. N2 - This chapter discusses various tactical aspects to consider when evaluating novel biomarker translatability. The evaluation procedures warrant careful attention in order to leverage the most appropriate traditional and novel biomarkers in the relevant biological matrices. Integration of biomarkers into clinical protocols requires incorporation of biomarker analysis into one of the study objectives. The chapter also describes the use of fit-for-purpose biomarkers in different phases of drug development. When translating a biomarker from preclinical to clinical studies, the species specificity of the assay should be evaluated. Evidence-based protocols for sample collection should be developed and implemented for each biomarker analyzed. When multiple biomarkers are to be analyzed, multiple types of collection containers/tubes may be necessary. ...

There are many reasons why clinical trials dont work well. A major one is not making them useful or interesting to patients. I had high hopes when I heard about the recent clinical trial protocol (plan) template from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Joint Leadership Council (JLC). Unfortunately, it looks like they…
This study suggests that, compared with conventional management, a treatment programme for failure to thrive delivered by health visitors using strict diagnostic criteria and assessment protocols, with limited additional support, results in a weight gain of around half an intercentile space using UK charts, equivalent to about 550 g. This was despite only just over half of the intervention group receiving the full programme, because a fifth showed prior spontaneous recovery and another quarter exercised their right to decline aspects of the programme. The fairly low levels of compliance with the follow up home visit were also disappointing, but compliance rates were similar in both arms, and those interviewed were representative of the original group. It is fortunate, however, that routine follow up weights were also retrieved for a high proportion of the group, which also showed a significant treatment benefit.. The severity of failure to thrive found in this cohort was similar to previous ...

It is well accepted that the clinical features of patients with HPV-driven HNSCC are distinct from those of patients with HPV-negative disease. These include distinct sites of origin of the disease (e.g., tonsil and base of tongue), younger age, and improved relapse-free survival following initial definitive treatment. Clinically, an emphasis on protocol development for patients with HPV-driven HNSCCs has consisted largely of de-escalation of standard therapy with a lower dose of radiation, more limited resection, or deintensification of chemotherapy.. Initial NGS studies of HPV-positive patients confirmed that these individuals harbor few genomic alterations in TP53 and/or CDKN2A, presumably due to the activity of the HPV E6 and E7 viral oncoproteins (11). These studies also suggested that HPV-driven HNSCCs display less genomic complexity as compared with HPV-negative disease, though TCGA and other more recent cohorts did not confirm this finding, perhaps due to tobacco use in the HPV-positive ...

The experts of ICMRs National Task Force for Covid-19 and the Joint Monitoring Group held its meeting on Thursday to deliberate on whether the drug should be included in the national treatment guidelines
This multicenter randomized trial assigned patients 1341 patients to protocol EGDT (Early Goal Directed Therapy), protocol-based standard therapy that did not require the placement of a central venous catheter, administration of inotropes, or blood transfusions or usual care which was not standardized. The data was analyzed with intention to treat to determine in protocolized treatment of sepsis had a mortality benefit as was shown in the original Rivers Trial. No significant 60 or 90 day mortality benefit was found to the protocol therapy and greater hospital resources such as ICU admissions were found in the protocol based groups. ...
This is the first multi-district Standardised Patient (SP) study in South Africa. It measures the quality of TB screening at primary healthcare (PHC) facilities. We hypothesise that TB screening protocols and best practices are poorly adhered to at the PHC level. The SP method allows researchers to observe how healthcare providers identify, test and advise presumptive TB patients, and whether this aligns with clinical protocols and best practice. The study was conducted at PHC facilities in two provinces and 143 interactions at 39 facilities were analysed. Only 43% of interactions resulted in SPs receiving a TB sputum test and being offered an HIV test. TB sputum tests were conducted routinely (84%) while HIV tests were offered less frequently (47%). Nurses frequently neglected to ask SPs whether their household contacts had confirmed TB (54%). Antibiotics were prescribed without taking temperatures in 8% of cases. The importance of returning to the facility to receive TB test results was only explained

The instructions given here are for the original, and what I like to call, Classic Protocol 1000. If you do further research you will find that we and many other people have tried various versions of Protocol 1000 over the years. While most all of the slight variations of Protocol 1000 have been successful, according to reports we have received from around the world the success has never been as good as the original protocol of mixing the dose fresh every hour. Protocol 1000 is taking a maximum of 3 drops of activated MMS (MMS1) in 4 ounces/120 ml of water once each hour, for eight consecutive hours, every day, for three weeks or until well. Do not start out at 3 drops an hour. Try to build up to 3 drops slowly. If your body does not tolerate an increase of drops, stick with what works best for you. Your health may be recovered taking less than 3 drops in each dose. Some people have recovered their health taking 1 or 2 drops per hour, and in rare cases even less. It is best to start out slow and ...

Rationale: Stroke and poststroke depression are common and have a profound and ongoing impact on an individuals quality of life. However, reliable biological correlates of poststroke depression and functional outcome have not been well established in humans. Aims: Our aim is to identify biological factors, molecular and imaging, associated with poststroke depression and recovery that may be used to guide more targeted interventions. Design: In a longitudinal cohort study of 200 stroke survivors, the START - STroke imAging pRevention and Treatment cohort, we will examine the relationship between gene expression, regulator proteins, depression, and functional outcome. Stroke survivors will be investigated at baseline, 24h, three-days, three-months, and 12 months poststroke for blood-based biological associates and at days 3-7, three-months, and 12 months for depression and functional outcomes. A sub-group (n=100), the PrePARE: Prediction and Prevention to Achieve optimal Recovery Endpoints after ...

Given the continued destruction, disturbance and fragmentation of tropical forests, and the associated extinction of species (Sayer & Whitmore 1991; May, Lawton & Stork 1995; Turner 1996), there is an urgent need to develop and test standardized methods for sampling biodiversity (Sutton & Collins 1991; Stork & Samways 1995). This has prompted a growing literature on the search for bioindicators, particularly for insects, because they form the bulk of species and animal biomass in terrestrial habitats and have a strong influence over many ecosystem processes. McGeoch (1998) reviewed the selection and utility of insects as indicators, and emphasized the need for explicit aims and hypothesis testing when nominating a species or group of taxa as a bioindicator. The basic purpose of bioindicators, whatever the ultimate aim, is to indicate a relationship with another biotic or abiotic variable. These relationships with other variables are, however, only as good as the sampling method employed to ...

Explicate the Management Strategies and Strategic Components to Identify Structural Practices (Participants: approximately 5775 online participants).. We propose to use an iterative online engagement strategy based on the Qualtrics [40] platform to explore variation in Management Strategies and Structural Practices focused on HAI-prevention across an initial sample of hospitals. In this step, we will build a survey instrument and deploy a computer-assisted Delphi method to conduct this assessment. The Delphi method is an iterative engagement technique where knowledgeable individuals are systematically asked a series of questions in multiple rounds of queries in five process stages, Preparation, Generation, Structure, Analysis, and Summary. Throughout this process, the research team will provide summaries of results to participants as findings emerge across the different participants perspectives. The Delphi study stages are explained below.. Stage 1, Preparation will involve identification of ...
|strong|Introduction|/strong|: Zambias under-resourced public health system will not be able to deliver on its health-related Millennium Development Goals without a substantial acceleration in mortality reduction. Reducing mortality will depend not only upon increasing access to health care but also upon improving the quality of care that is delivered. Our project proposes to improve the quality of clinical care and to improve utilization of that care,through a targeted quality improvement (QI) intervention delivered at the facility and community level. |strong|Description of implementation|/strong|: The project is being carried out 42 primary health care facilities that serve a largely rural population of more than 450,000 in Zambias Lusaka Province. We have deployed six QI teams toimplement consensus clinical protocols, forms, and systems at each site. The QI teams define new clinical quality expectations and provide tools needed to deliver on those expectations. They also monitor the care that
In recent years, evidence-based protocols of bundled therapies have improved survival of severe sepsis in developed countries. In sub-Saharan Africa, simple therapies such as IV fluids and early antibiotics are frequently under-utilized. Studies of fluid interventions in the region, however, have demonstrated conflicting results. Outcomes in septic patients may be further affected by delays in the diagnosis of tuberculosis-associated severe sepsis.. The aims of this study are (1) To assess the impact on survival of a simple evidence-based protocol for severe sepsis with hypotensionor septic shock, (2) To evaluate the cost of implementation for a simplified severe sepsis protocol, (3) To develop a clinical diagnostic score for identifying tuberculosis in HIV positive patients with severe sepsis, and (4) To assess the performance of the Xpert TB/RIF rapid PCR system and urine lipoarabinomannan assay for diagnosing tuberculosis in HIV positive patients with severe sepsis. ...

Because the advantages of clinical trials registries are so great and because several forces now demand their creation, the challenge is to develop systems that will be accessible to a range of persons and serve a range of interrelated purposes (39). Given these broad goals, several authors have suggested the types of elements that should be included in a clinical trials registry (7, 22, 25, 27). All agree on the high-level categories of information that should be present in a full clinical trials protocol (40), although there are differences in the emphasis placed on those categories. General and administrative information includes the trial name or title, a registration number, the funding source, the site at which the trial is being conducted, the name and affiliation of the investigators, the study start and completion dates, and the recruiting status of the trial. The purpose and objectives of the trial include the disease or condition being treated or evaluated, the treatments or ...
Infertility is defined as inability of a couple to conceive naturally after one year of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. It remains a major clinical and social problem, affecting perhaps one couple in six. Evaluation usually starts after 12 months; however it may be indicated earlier. The most common causes of infertility are: male factor such as sperm abnormalities, female factor such as ovulation dysfunction and tubal pathology, combined male and female factors and unexplained infertility. The aim of this study is to provide the healthcare professionals an evidence-based management protocol for infertile couples away from medical information overload.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Several changes in the management protocols of anaesthesia for geriatric patients were introduced into clinical practice to improve the outcome. Very few studies have evaluated the impact of these management protocols. The aim of our study was to evaluate impact of some of the changes in the peri-operative management protocols of geriatric patients undergoing elective orthopaedic lower limb surgeries on the outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of thirty-eight surgical patients from 1999 (Group 1999) before the introduction of changes and 107 patients from 2007 (Group 2007) after establishing changes was performed and data of peri-operative variables were collected and analysed ...

Here are the facts:. ___. COVID-19 vaccine does not spread by inhalation or skin contact. CLAIM: Pfizer admits in its COVID-19 clinical trial protocol document that vaccinated people can shed the vaccine, emitting materials that can spread to unvaccinated people by inhalation or skin contact.. THE FACTS: Pfizers COVID-19 vaccine does not shed from person to person, nor has the company admitted any such thing. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is a synthetic mRNA vaccine and does not contain any virus particles. Because there is no virus produced in the body, no shedding occurs within the human body, Pfizer spokesperson Jerica Pitts told The Associated Press in an email. The vaccine cannot be inhaled via shedding and can only enter the human body through an administered dose. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Pfizers vaccine in December after extensive clinical trials. Women who were pregnant or breastfeeding were excluded from joining those early clinical studies, and ...

Three randomized clinical trials have recently provided data on the lack of effectiveness of early-goal directed therapy (EGDT) (i.e. optimization of tissue oxygenation in the first 6 hours since sepsis diagnosis using different therapeutic interventions based on the assessment of the central venous oxygen saturation to titrate such interventions) in the initial management of patients with septic shock. In a first trial including 31 US hospitals (the ProCESS study, N.=1341), three different therapeutic strategies (EGDT vs. protocol-based therapy vs. usual care) were compared and no difference in the primary endpoint (60-day mortality) was found (EGDT 21%, protocol-based therapy 18% and usual care 19%). No significant difference in death by 90 days or in other secondary outcomes, including serious adverse events, was found, as well. A second trial (ARISE, N.=1600), mostly conducted in Australia and New Zealand, randomized patients to EGDT or usual care. Ninety-day mortality was similar between ...
Assessment should begin with a review of the institutions mission statement and overall goals. What are the institutions priorities, and what evidence can demonstrate their achievement? How can the institution best combine summative assessment (which focuses on learners development at a particular time) and formative assessment (a more holistic approach that uses multiple points of measurement to provide continuous feedback and improve educational opportunities) to meet its goals? By answering these and related questions, administrators can determine which assessment methods and tools to use.. The next step in developing an assessment protocol is to explore the institutional context and available resources, including others who are already engaged in assessment. This process should lead to the creation of a multiunit assessment team, as the undertaking is too complex for any one office to implement.

Subarachnoid hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury and cardiogenic shock are diseases that can be life-threatening and might require weeks of intensive medical care. Administration of medication is an essential part of the treatment. According to current practice, the route of drug administration in critically ill patients can be enteral or parenteral depending on the available drug format and vigilance of patients. However, there are many studies in the literature that report a disturbance of gastrointestinal function in critically ill patients. Therefore, the question of whether the enteral route of drug administration in critically ill patients is pharmacokinetically meaningful should be investigated in this study ...
The aim of this non-investigational study is to determine the symptoms and burden at the moment of diagnosis and in the further course of an incurable cancer disease. The needs and preferences of patients suffering from cancer (ovarian carcinoma, breast cancer, malignant melanoma, lung cancer, stomach cancer, oesophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, cancer of the hepatobiliary system, colorectal cancer, head and neck cancer) will be examined by various questionnaires. The data obtained by these questionnaires will be collected together with information obtained by the treating physicians at four time points during the study: T0 - patient´s enrollment, at the moment of diagnosis and before the start of tumor therapy, respectively; T1 - 3 months after the patient´s enrollment; T2 - 6 months after the patient´s enrollment; T3 - 12 months after the patient´s enrollment. This highly innovative project offers the chance to identify medical services deficits and risk circumstances for the burden of ...

This summary abstract describes the methodology used to evaluate the effect of pellet pellet and pellet clad interactions with consideration of the interfacial bonding efficiency on UNF vibration integrity. This methodology provides a solid roadmap for further protocol development with respect to effective lifetime prediction of a UNF system under normal transportation vibration. The proposed methodology that couples FEA simulations and experimental exploration efforts is also under development. The current methodology is focused on assessing the influence of interfacial bonding at the pellet pellet and the pellet clad interfaces on UNF vibration integrity. The FEA simulation results were also calibrated and benchmarked with the fatigue aging data obtained from reversible bending fatigue testing. ...

Clinical Research, Clinical Study, Clinical Trial, and Clinical Protocol all concern the same topic. These terms are often used interchangeably to talk about scientific studies that use people to understand if new drugs, treatments and devices are safe and effective. Clinical studies cannot happen until basic research in a laboratory determines the new treatment, drug or device is successful and safe. Once basic research indicates scientific promise, the FDA must approve continuing the research and beginning to test in people. Carefully controlled and well-designed clinical trials are performed by highly trained medical professionals to understand how this new treatment will work in people. The clinical trial is trying to duplicate the promising lab results in people.. Clinical Trials are conducted in four phases that occur in sequential order. Each phase tends to have a different purpose and helps answer different questions. Each phase is considered a separate trial. After completion of each ...
As a resident computer scientist at NINDS Translational Neuroradiology Section (TNS) lab, Moayeri developed code that helped accelerate data-processing steps in experiments tied to spinal cord research and worked side by side with leading scientists conducting basic and clinical biomedical research. He also worked in the clinical center, which left him with a strong sense of validation that his contributions could make a difference.. Often, patients who come to the NIH come out of necessity, as the already established clinical protocols are not sufficient to help these patients, says Moayeri. Seeing how many people would come from all over the country to the NIH really led me to believe in what I was working on and gave me a new sense of purpose.. Moayeris work in the TNS lab focused on measuring and capturing data of MS disease evolution taken from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Examining MRI scans of spinal cord lesions, Moayeri isolated quantitative data. Typically, this ...

One can reduce the complexity of making a diagnosis of SLE by using conceptual models. There are two such models, one separate illnesses, the other linear illness; both cluster SLEs disparate elements. The separate illnesses model posits that typical, overlap, UAS and antibody-only SLE are separate but related illnesses. A strength of this model is that it assigns different, targetable biological mechanisms to each diagnosis. Another strength is that a diagnosis, once made, does not change.37-40 Weaknesses of this model are that, in clinical practice, ambiguous diagnoses occur often, blurring the separating lines, and that diagnoses do sometimes change. Clinical protocols that rigidly adhere to sharp distinctions among diagnoses may remove options available to the treating physician. Another weakness is that insights suggested by evolving phenotypes may be unseen if an investigator believes that change of diagnosis cannot occur.30 The linear illness model posits that UAS, overlap, antibody-only ...

It is estimated that over half of current adults within Great Britain under the age of 65 will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime. Medical Imaging forms an essential part of cancer clinical protocols and is able to furnish morphological, metabolic and functional information. The imaging of molecular interactions of biological processes in vivo with Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is informative not only for disease detection but also therapeutic response. The qualitative and quantitative accuracy of imaging is thus vital in the extraction of meaningful and reproducible information from the images, allowing increased sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis and precision of image guided treatment. Furthermore the utilization of complementary information obtained via Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in integrated PET-CT and PET-MR devices offers the potential for the synergistic effects of hybrid imaging to provide increased detection and ...
