Clinical Trials Related to Soma Compound with Codeine (Carisoprodol / Aspirin / Codeine)

Supplementation With Omega-3: Mechanism of Action [Suspended]
This is a trial of two marketed fish oil supplements, one with a high EPA: DHA ratio and the other with a high DHA: EPA ratio, to examine differential effects on platelet function, blood pressure, and fasting triglyceride levels.

Effects of Berries on Post-meal Blood Sugar [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether berries are effective in lowering blood glucose and insulin responses to meals containing starch or sucrose.

Prevention of Radiation Pneumonitis After Three-dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3D-CRT) in Patients With Non-small-cell Lung Cancer [Active, not recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the interest of breath holding for the prevention of radiation pneumonitis following conformal radiation therapy. Eligible patients will be randomly assigned in a 2-arm trial to free breathing or breath holding during conformal radiation. The primary objective of the study is to establish the efficacy of breath holding, compared to free breathing, in the prevention of early pulmonary toxicity following conformal radiation. Several departments of radiotherapy, many pneumology units and two basic and applied research laboratories take part in this multicentric study. The number of patients required to demonstrate a reduction in radiation pneumonitis from 45 % to 22. 5 %, assuming an alpha risk of 5% in a two-sided test and 95% power, is 240 (120 per arm). With a planned accrual of 7 patients per month, it is estimated that the inclusion period should be approximately 3 years.

Parotid-Sparing Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy Compared With Conventional Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Oropharyngeal or Hypopharyngeal Cancer Who Are at High Risk of Radiation-Induced Xerostomia [Active, not recruiting]
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Intensity-modulated radiation therapy delivers thin beams of radiation of different strengths directly to the tumor from many angles. This type of radiation therapy may reduce damage to the parotid (salivary) glands, prevent xerostomia (dry mouth), and improve quality of life. It is not yet known whether intensity-modulated radiation therapy is more effective than conventional radiation therapy in preventing xerostomia and improving quality of life in patients who have throat cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying intensity-modulated radiation therapy to see how well it works compared to conventional radiation therapy in treating patients with oropharyngeal or hypopharyngeal cancer who are at risk of developing xerostomia caused by radiation therapy.

Trial of Safety Nets In Hospitalized Patients [Completed]
This study compared standard hospital restraints to a newer safety net restraint system to compare them for acceptability, tolerance, duration of restrain, length of stay in the hospital, and satisfaction of MD, nurse, and relatives of patients.
