- Healthy volunteers over the age of eighteen that have been recently dismissed from the Emergency Department at Mayo Clinic Hospital, Saint Marys Campus.
- We will recruit a convenience sample of 100 patients from the Emergency Department who have completed their Emergency Department evaluation and treatment and are being discharged to home with non-painful conditions.
- We will exclude persons under the age of eighteen
- Vulnerable populations (pregnant patients and prisoners)
- Those with an allergy to any of the study agents
- Those with acute pain
- Those using antihypertensive or antiarrhythmic agents
- Those with significant cardiopulmonary comorbidities (namely history of arrhythmia, coronary artery disease, hypertension, and heart failure)
- Those with concomitant use of MAO-Inhibitors
- Those with a diagnosis of angle closure glaucoma or BPH
- Those with a history of cerebrovascular disease
- As well as those with a history of previous nasal surgery or known nasal anatomic abnormalities.
Do adults and older children (greater than 7 years of age) with unilateral or assymetric hearing loss benefit from cochlear implantation on the worst hearing side.
This is not a funded study. All costs are billed through insurance for reimbursement. There is an insurance approval process that we move through after a participant has been evaluated at the Mayo Clinic and found to be a candidate for cochlear implantation.
The investigators propose to study the safety of autologous mesenchymal stromal cell transfer using a biomatrix (the Gore® Bio-A®; Fistula Plug) in a Phase I study using a single dose of 20 million cells. Twenty adult patients (age 18 years or older) with refractory, complicated perianal fistulizing Crohn's disease will be enrolled. Subjects will undergo standard adjuvant therapy including drainage of infection and placement of a draining seton with continuation of pre-existing anti-Crohn's therapy. Six weeks post placement of the draining seton, the seton will be replaced with the MSC loaded Gore® Bio-A® fistula plug as per current clinical practice. The subjects will be subsequently followed for fistula response and closure for 24 months. This is an autologous product derived from the patient and used only for the same patient.
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of repeat dosing with multiple dose levels of bimagrumab on patient physical function, skeletal muscle mass and strength in older adults with sarcopenia. In addition, this study will generate data on the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of bimagrumab in older adults with sarcopenia.
Glaucoma is a major cause of blindness. The inability to predict a patient's IOP response to medications is a critical barrier for the clinician to consistently provide highly effective IOP-based treatments. Current trial-and error approaches to glaucoma management are inefficient and have not addressed this barrier as there are no predictive factors for drug response. Our long-term goal is to improve outcomes by identifying biomarkers and environmental factors that profile a patient at risk for glaucoma by age-of-onset, rate of disease progression, "poor response" to treatment, and large IOP fluctuation. Our purpose of this research project is to address this critical barrier by focusing on physiological factors that predict IOP response to drugs.
The primary objectives of the study are to assess the safety, tolerability and evidence of activity of multiple intravitreal (IVT) injections of APL-2 in subjects with Geographic Atrophy associated with Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
This study aims to demonstrate that the investigational drug AUT00063 is effective and safe in the treatment of age-related hearing loss.
- Endometrial cancer is one of the most common gynecologic cancers. If it is caught at an early stage, it can be treated more easily. Women who have this type of cancer often have a history of irregular menstrual bleeding. They may also have abnormal findings during gynecologic exams. Pap smears and cervical cell collection may be able to collect cell samples for cancer testing. However, samples from the vagina or endometrium may produce more accurate results. Researchers want to collect vaginal and endometrial cell samples to improve their tests for and understanding of endometrial cancer.
- To collect vaginal and endometrial cell samples to study endometrial cancer.
- Women at least 18 years of age who have had symptoms of abnormal uterine or post-menopausal bleeding, or abnormal ultrasound findings.
- Participants will be screened with a physical exam and medical history.
- Participants will have a pelvic exam. Before the exam, they will insert a small tampon in the vagina. The tampon will stay in place for about 10 to 30 minutes. The tampon will then be removed and collected for the study.
- During the pelvic exam, tissue will be collected from the uterine lining with a special brush. An additional sample (biopsy) will be collected from the lining.
- A blood sample will also be collected as part of the study.
The purpose of this study is to describe the occurence of adverse events which lead to the reduction in dose of afatinib in elderly patients with non-small cell lung cancer, who have common EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) mutations.
The purpose of the Cystic Fibrosis Patient Registry is to gather and maintain data on all patients with the disease so that current and accurate data can be provided to researchers and clinicians regarding practice patterns, age and gender distributions, clinical outcomes, mortality and morbidity rates, and so that epidemiologic research can be performed.
