COVID-19 Clinical Trials Category: Health Care

There is currently an abundance of COVID-19 clinical trials around the world and within the United States. The amount of clinical trials and complexity involved can be daunting for many. Our patient centric clinical trial approach can help you or a loved one find the right clinical trial. Search for COVID-19 (Corona Virus) clinical trials on the Modern Trials site and we encourage you to look for all resources available. https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?cond=covid&term=&cntry=&state=&city=&dist= The Modern Trials clinical trial team is here for you.

Why Clinical Trials Are So Important Category: Health Care

The results from this trial were positive, and it is likely that these observations open the door for further research on the abscopal properties of Fresolimumab. Going into the trial, researchers will not have known the effects of the drug and so this encouraging result will give researchers more momentum to further test its capabilities. In time it is hoped that this new drug can improve survival rates for stage 4 breast cancer patients across the world. Many patients struggle with entering clinical trials due to the fact that they are testing drugs for the very first time without knowing what the potential side effects could be. However, without trials, there would be a much narrower range of effective treatment for a whole host of diseases. In fact, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of people still alive today because they took part in a clinical trial of a new and more effective drug. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 1,000 potential medicines are tested before one makes it to the clinical trial phase. They must all first be discovered, purified, and tested in pre-clinical trials before they can even be considered. With regards to breast cancer it takes an average of 6 years of testing before a medicine or a drug is considered for clinical trials. Therefore, despite the fact that clinical trials are often the first test of a drug’s performance, there are already indicative results of how it should perform in the human body, which helps to allay any fears patients may have.

What Are Clinical Trials Category: Health Care

Clinical trials are a type of medical research involving people. There are two main types of medical research: observational studies and clinical trials. Observational studies involve the observation of a group of people in normal settings over time. The goal is to monitor a specific risk factor, diagnostic test, treatment, or other intervention and its overall effect on health. Researchers gather information, group volunteers according to broad characteristics, and compare changes over time. For example, researchers may collect data through medical exams, tests, and/or questionnaires to learn more about the effects of smoking on the development of lung cancer over time. These studies may help identify new possibilities for clinical trials. Clinical trials are research studies performed in people. These studies are aimed at evaluating a specific medical, surgical, or behavioral interventions. They are the primary way that researchers find out if a new treatment, such as a new medication, diet, or medical device is safe and effective in people. Clinical trials are often used to determine if new treatments are more effective and/or have less harmful side effects than the current standard treatment. Clinical trials pioneer medical advancement through: - Promising new therapies - Important discoveries - Advances in treatment - Groundbreaking possibilities Through medical research, physicians can discover new ways to improve treatments and the quality of life for patients. The importance of trials has taken the spotlight in the last few weeks as COVID-19 (novel Corona Virus) has taken the world by storm. Therapies and vaccines are on the frontline to re-open the world.

Type II Diabetes Category: Health Care

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose) — an important source of fuel for your body. With type 2 diabetes, your body either resists the effects of insulin — a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells — or doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain normal glucose levels. Type 2 diabetes used to be known as adult-onset diabetes, but today more children are being diagnosed with the disorder, probably due to the rise in childhood obesity. There's no cure for type 2 diabetes, but losing weight, eating well and exercising can help manage the disease. If diet and exercise aren't enough to manage your blood sugar well, you may also need diabetes medications or insulin therapy. Symptoms Signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes often develop slowly. In fact, you can have type 2 diabetes for years and not know it. Look for: Increased thirst Frequent urination Increased hunger Unintended weight loss Fatigue Blurred vision Slow-healing sores Frequent infections Areas of darkened skin, usually in the armpits and neck Causes Type 2 diabetes develops when the body becomes resistant to insulin or when the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin. Exactly why this happens is unknown, although genetics and environmental factors, such as being overweight and inactive, seem to be contributing factors. How insulin works Insulin is a hormone that comes from the gland situated behind and below the stomach (pancreas). The pancreas secretes insulin into the bloodstream. The insulin circulates, enabling sugar to enter your cells. Insulin lowers the amount of sugar in your bloodstream. As your blood sugar level drops, so does the secretion of insulin from your pancreas. The role of glucose Glucose — a sugar — is a main source of energy for the cells that make up muscles and other tissues. Glucose comes from two major sources: food and your liver. Sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream, where it enters cells with the help of insulin. Your liver stores and makes glucose. When your glucose levels are low, such as when you haven't eaten in a while, the liver breaks down stored glycogen into glucose to keep your glucose level within a normal range. In type 2 diabetes, this process doesn't work well. Instead of moving into your cells, sugar builds up in your bloodstream. As blood sugar levels increase, the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas release more insulin, but eventually these cells become impaired and can't make enough insulin to meet the body's demands. In the much less common type 1 diabetes, the immune system mistakenly destroys the beta cells, leaving the body with little to no insulin. Risk factors Factors that may increase your risk of type 2 diabetes include: Weight. Being overweight is a main risk factor for type 2 diabetes. However, you don't have to be overweight to develop type 2 diabetes. Fat distribution. If you store fat mainly in the abdomen, you have a greater risk of type 2 diabetes than if you store fat elsewhere, such as in your hips and thighs. Your risk of type 2 diabetes rises if you're a man with a waist circumference above 40 inches (101.6 centimeters) or a woman with a waist that's greater than 35 inches (88.9 centimeters). Inactivity. The less active you are, the greater your risk of type 2 diabetes. Physical activity helps you control your weight, uses up glucose as energy and makes your cells more sensitive to insulin. Family history. The risk of type 2 diabetes increases if your parent or sibling has type 2 diabetes. Race. Although it's unclear why, people of certain races — including black, Hispanic, American Indian and Asian-American people — are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than white people are. Age. The risk of type 2 diabetes increases as you get older, especially after age 45. That's probably because people tend to exercise less, lose muscle mass and gain weight as they age. But type 2 diabetes is also increasing dramatically among children, adolescents and younger adults. Sign-up today and lets end diabetes.
