Clinical Trials Related to Ovace Plus Shampoo (Sulfacetamide)

Intraductal Meibomian Gland Probing Trial [Recruiting]
In this research study, the investigators are looking at the effects of Meibomian Gland Probing (MGP) versus a sham (fake) procedure in patients with refractory MGD who have already tried traditional management with no success in resolving their clinical signs (as seen by their ophthalmologist) or their symptoms. The investigators are also evaluating the effects of using two (2) post-procedural medication treatments: Blephamide or GenTeal PM Night-Time to determine if treatment after the MGP procedure has an effect on its outcome.

Patients Response to Early Switch To Oral:Osteomyelitis Study [Not yet recruiting]
Based on the current literature, investigators hypothesize that patients with osteomyelitis who are treated with the standard approach of intravenous antibiotics for the full duration of therapy will have the same clinical outcomes as patients treated with the experimental approach of intravenous antibiotics with early switch to oral antibiotics. The primary objective of this study is to compare patients with osteomyelitis treated with the standard approach of intravenous antibiotics for the full duration of therapy versus patients treated with intravenous antibiotics with an early switch to oral antibiotics in relation to clinical outcomes at 12 months after discontinuation of antibiotic therapy. Secondary objectives of the study include the evaluation of adverse events related to the use of antibiotics as well as the cost of care evaluated from the hospital perspective.

The Effect of Sodium Thiosulfate Eardrops on Hearing Loss in Patients Who Receive Cisplatin Therapy [Recruiting]
This is a pilot, randomized, self-controlled study of the effects of intratympanic sodium thiosulfate (STS) on the degree of hearing loss in patients receiving cisplatin therapy. Sodium thiosulfate is an inactive ingredient contained in sulfacetamide ophthalmic solution which is used routinely as an otic solution delivered to the middle ear space.

The hypothesis of this study is that local administration of sodium thiosulfate (STS) will result in improved hearing compared to ears not receiving the study drug in patients receiving systemic cisplatin therapy.
