IRB No. 15-118-1 (Dr. Jun Lu, PI): A Phase 3, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo and Active Comparator-controlled Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Guselkumab for the Treatment of Subjects with Moderate to Severe Plaque-type Psoriasis (VOYAGE 1)
Study description not available
IRB No. 16-055-2 (Dr. David Steffens, PI): Department of Psychiatry: Adult Repository
The purpose of the repository is to prospectively collect biological samples along with clinical data to facilitate future research studies and pilot analysis related to medical and behavioral health research.
IRB No. 16-086-1 (Dr. Kai Chen, PI): Endothelial Dysfunction in Coronary Artery Disease and Diastolic Heart Failure
Congestive Heart failure, including systolic and diastolic heart failure, is a major public health hazard and its prevalence continues to rise. While the mortality of systolic heart failure has significantly reduced over the past decade thanks to the advances in pharmacological therapy, there has not been a single therapy that has shown to be survival benefit on diastolic heart failure. A significant gap in knowledge on diastolic heart failure has to be bridged before we may design a therapeutic strategy to target this disease. Recent elegant studies have revealed evidence of systemic and myocardial inflammation in endomyocardial tissues. A new paradigm of the pathophysiology of diastolic heart failure has been proposed - systemic proinflammatory state, coronary endothelial inflammation, impairment in endothelial-cardiomyocyte nitric oxide signaling, inflammatory cell infiltration and proinflammatory cytokines, collectively lead to diastolic dysfunction. Therefore, our central hypothesis is endothelial dysfunction contributes to diastolic function and clinical exacerbation of heart failure.
IRB No. 16-111-1 (Dr. Efthimia Ioannidou, PI): Novel Paradigm to Improve Inflammatory Burden in ERSD
The study proposes to examine, for the first time in dialysis patients, the short and long-term effect of systemic and repeated oral health interventions on inflammation and clinical oral parameters. The ultimate goal of this proposal is to improve access to oral care and quality of life by implementing continuous and repeated in-center oral health programs in dialysis populations.
IRB No. 16-234-1 (Dr. Bruce Liang, PI): UConn Health Cardiology Center Research Screening Protocol
This protocol will be used to gain permission from cardiology patients for Cardiology research staff to access health medical records in order to determine eligibility for research studies and clinical trials. The protocol does not involve actual scientific research.
