TACT 2 - Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy

The Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy 2 (TACT2) is an NIH funded study which aims to find out if chelation treatments given through the vein and vitamins and minerals by mouth lower the risk of new heart problems. Events that are being studied include death, heart attack, chest pains, or heart surgery to open blood vessels.

Participants over 50 years old with diabetes and previous heart attack(s) will receive a weekly infusion (through the vein) of either chelation or a placebo (an inactive substance). They will also receive pills to take daily, which are either vitamins and minerals, or a placebo. These groups will be compared to see if receiving chelation and multivitamins reduces the risk of another heart attack.

All the forces in the world are not so powerful as an idea whose time has come. -Victor Hugo Not what we were expecting! When analyzing the results of the first Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT), researchers found that a subgroup of patients with diabetes who received EDTA chelation had fewer cardiovascular events than ...

MOSAIC- Placebo-Controlled Study for Selonsertib in Subjects with Moderate to Advanced Diabetic Kidney Disease

This study aims to test an experimental drug named selonsertib (SEL) for the treatment of moderate to advanced diabetic kidney disease (DKD). Diabetic kidney disease is a type of kidney disease caused by high blood sugar levels which damage tiny blood vessels in the kidney, causing progressively worsening kidney function.

Participants of ages 18-80 who have an eGFR 20-60, proteinurea, and have no history of cancer will test this drug. Study procedures include questionaires, blood and urine testing, vital signs and measurements, EKG, a physical exam, 6 minute walk test, and a sit-to-stand test.

COAG Study - Non-Contact Measurement of Whole Blood Coagulation in a Smoking “Well” population

COAG study aims to test the effectiveness of a non-contact method for measuring coagulation called acoustic tweezing thromboelastometry. This method, based on the acoustic levitation phenomenon, can measure the coagulation status of blood more accurately and quickerthan standard laboratory tests.

This study consists of a single visit, in which the Acoustic tweezing thromboelastometry test and standard coagulation assay test is performed on blood of healthy non-smoking and healthy smoking volunteers of ages 18 to 50 years.

At the moment, health care is one-size-fits-all. But imagine a future where your health treatments are individualized and as unique as you are. This is called precision medicine - and we can make that future possible.

Participants may be asked to:

  1. Answer Surveys Online
  2. Share your electronic health record (EHR)
  3. Give blood and urine samples
  4. Have your physical measurements taken

CHAP Project : Antihypertensive Therapy for Mild Chronic Hypertension during Pregnancy:A Pragmatic Multicenter Randomized Trial

A large pragmatic randomized trial with a primary aim to evaluate the benefits and harms of pharmacologic treatment of mild Chronic Hypertension (CHTN) in pregnancy. Pregnant women with mild CHTN (<160/105) with or without prior antihypertensive treatment will be randomized to either primary therapy (with labetalol or nifedipine ER) or to American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) standard treatment (antihypertensive medication only if BP≥160/105 mmHg). The participants will be followed until delivery and for 6-12 weeks postpartum.

RAGE Ruptured Aneurysms Treated with Hydrogel Coils

This is a prospective, non-randomized, multicenter post-market study. The RAGE study is designed to determine the safety and blockage rates of hydrogel coils in patients with ruptured aneurysms. The data from these procedures is collected and recorded for research purposes and includes clinical follow-up evaluations performed at 30 days (20 - 60 days) and 18 ± 6 months, and an angiogram follow-up evaluation will be performed at 18 ± 6 months.
