No study has been performed to prospectively record the presenting complaints, signs, symptoms and comorbidities of children who raised the suspicion of pulmonary embolism (PE). Clinicians must extrapolate what is known about PE in adults to children. Perhaps as a result, the mortality rate of PE is the same in children as it is in adults. On the other hand, tens of thousands of low risk children and adolescents are unnecessarily exposed to increased lifetime cancer risk from ionizing radiation from CT scans done to search for PE they do not have.
The purpose of this research study is to determine how well individualized caffeine dosing recommendations work to recover performance during continuous extended sleep loss. Results from this study will be used to help develop technology that can be deployed in the field to prevent sleep loss related declines in performance in soldiers. Work has been done to develop models that predict behavior based on previous sleep patterns, but these models have not been tested against laboratory results. This study aims to test how well one specific version of this model works.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) remains an elusive, unsolved medical problem. Current mainstream approaches address the problem at the site of symptoms, but this approach only partially accounts for the causes and effects of CTS. Growing evidence suggests that CTS impacts not only the nervous system at the hand, but also impacts the brain.
A team at the U of A and Banner Health is looking for people who have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes to join a study about a new approach to managing your blood sugar.
The study will last about 1 month and will take place at a UA/Banner Health outpatient clinic near BUMC-Tucson South. You will attend an individual education session and receive information that might help you lose weight.
Completion of the proposed studies will correlate the specific genes, proteins, nucleic acids or bacterial species with gastrointestinal, pancreato-biliary and hepatology disorders, including but not limited to cancer. A secondary point will be to determine whether specific biomarkers found in bodily fluids or tissue predict qualitative and quantitative changes in metabolic pathways.
A research team at the U of A is looking for people who have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes to join a study about a new mobile application being designed to help people manage Type 2 diabetes.
We will ask you to review different ways to track your diet and give us your opinions about them. If you join the study, you will attend a one-time in-person visit with the researchers at a UA facility near BUMC South.
The study aims to assess the safety and efficacy of Viaskin Peanut to induce desensitization to peanut in peanut-allergic children 1 to 3 years of age after a 12-month treatment by EPicutaneous ImmunoTherapy (EPIT)
