Warning By FDA Against High Dose Antidepressant Prescription May Be Unwarranted
Source: Depression News From Medical News Today [2013.05.07]
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's warning that high doses of the antidepressant citalopram can cause potentially serious abnormal heart rhythms might be doing more harm than good. In 2011, the FDA attached a warning to the drug, also known as Celexa, based on data linking higher doses of the drug to potentially fatal abnormal changes in the electrical activity of the heart...
Published Studies Related to HMS (Medrysone Ophthalmic)
Predicting hospitalization due to worsening heart failure using daily weight measurement: analysis of the Trans-European Network-Home-Care Management System (TEN-HMS) study. [2009.04]
CONCLUSION: A MACD algorithm is more specific but less sensitive than RoT when trying to predict episodes of WHF based on daily weight measurements. However, many episodes of WHF do not appear to be associated with weight gain and therefore telemonitoring of weight alone may not have great value for heart failure management.
Noninvasive home telemonitoring for patients with heart failure at high risk of recurrent admission and death: the Trans-European Network-Home-Care Management System (TEN-HMS) study. [2005.05.17]
OBJECTIVES: We sought to identify whether home telemonitoring (HTM) improves outcomes compared with nurse telephone support (NTS) and usual care (UC) for patients with heart failure who are at high risk of hospitalization or death. BACKGROUND: Heart failure is associated with a high rate of hospitalization and poor prognosis. Telemonitoring could help implement and maintain effective therapy and detect worsening heart failure and its cause promptly to prevent medical crises... CONCLUSIONS: Further investigation and refinement of the application of HTM are warranted because it may be a valuable role for the management of selected patients with heart failure.
Identifying patients at risk of death or hospitalisation due to worsening heart failure using decision tree analysis: Evidence from the Trans-European Network-Home-Care Management System (TEN-HMS) Study. [2011.07.02]
OBJECTIVES: To stratify patients recently discharged from hospital with heart failure (HF) according to their risk of death and/or hospitalisation for worsening HF (WHF), to enable timely and appropriate monitoring and intervention... CONCLUSIONS: Decision trees are an alternative classification method used to differentiate risk in patients with HF. The resultant models are concise, free of subjective variables and understood easily by clinicians. Further exploration of their potential and validation in other data-sets is justified.

Hyper reactive malarial splenomegaly (HMS). [2006.07]
Hyper reactive malarial splenomegaly (HMS) is a relatively rare chronic complication of malaria. Previous name of the disease was Tropical splenomegaly syndrome (TSS).The boy was discharged with malaria prophylaxis for a long time & advised to come to our unit every month for further follow up.
Clinical Trials Related to HMS (Medrysone Ophthalmic)
Hï¿½meenlinna Metabolic Syndrome Research Program: Surrogate Indicators for Atherosclerosis [Recruiting]
Mechanisms that link metabolic syndrome to atherosclerosis are incompletely understood. As a
part of Hämeenlinna Metabolic Syndrome Research Program (HMS) surrogate indicators for
atherosclerosis are studied in 120 men with metabolic syndrome, 120 men with coronary heart
disease and 80 physically active controls and in different settings.
Effect of Undenatured Cysteine-Rich Whey Protein Isolate (HMS 90ï¿½) in Patients With Parkinson's Disease [Recruiting]
This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase IV trial , comparing HMS 90® versus
placebo (soy protein) as add-on (adjuvant) therapy in subjects with idiopathic Parkinson's
The principal objective is to evaluate the changes in biomarkers of oxidative stress
and,plasma amino acids, as well as improvement of clinical symptoms and brain function
Text Messaging and Atopic Dermatitis [Recruiting]
Atopic dermatitis is a common problem faced by patients of all ages and backgrounds.
Treatment regimens and specific therapies may be time consuming and multiple studies have
documented a parallel decrease in compliance as time after an office visit increases. The
adolescent population is an extremely challenging sub-group of patients in terms of
complying with a treatment regimen. Not only are they striving for independence and thus
lacking supervision of a regimen by a parent, but their complex thinking skills are
immature, leading to forgetful behavior. By introducing a reminder system for these
vulnerable patients that is easily incorporated into their daily lives, the investigators
propose that patients will have better compliance at applying their medication and thus
improving their atopic dermatitis. Text-messaging via cell phones has become very popular
among teenagers and adults and provides a non-obtrusive method of sending a treatment
Clinical and Economic Impact of an Electronic Medical Record Interfaced Decision Support System Reinforced With Patient Specific Pharmacogenetic Data for Minimizing Severe Drug-Drug Interactions [Not yet recruiting]
Leumit Health Services, an health maintenance organization operating in Israel, will
incorporate a web-based, decision support system for handling drug-drug interactions and
drug information, termed DDI+ reinforced with patient specific pharmacogenetic data. The
investigators hypothesize that implementing such a system will reduce health-care
expenditures (e. g., hospital admissions, referrals to ERs, Imaging procedures).
Interruptions in the Coagulationsystem in Relation With Cardiac Surgery - A Study Comparing Two Heparinization Strategies During On-pump Cardiac Surgery [Not yet recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to find the heparinization method, which
1. affect the heparin-protaminsulfate ratio in the best way to achieve haemostasis
2. gives the smallest change in endogenous thrombin potential (ETP)postoperative compared
to preoperative (deltaETP) as an indicator for haemostatic activation during cardiac
The hypothesis is that the deltaETP is larger in the Haemochron Signature Elite group than
in the Hepcon-group because of the heparinization-method. Therefore there is a potential
higher risk for use of bloodproducts postoperatively.
