Bathing Babies and Allergy
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic allergic skin disease with onset in early childhood and increasing prevalence in Westernized countries. Current well newborn guidelines for washing babies with soap were adopted by U.S. hospitals in the 1970s, before the rise in prevalence of allergic disease and AD (also called eczema). Increased transepidermal water-loss (TEWL) in newborn skin at 2 days of life was recently identified as a predictor of AD and allergy development by age 2 years. Risk for AD in babies was also linked to decreased skin colonization with certain skin microflora, such as staphylococcal organisms. Together, these data raise...
Belimumab (BENLYSTA®) Pregnancy Registry
This global Belimumab Pregnancy Registry will collect prospective data on pregnancies and pregnancy outcomes on a voluntary basis in women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who have received commercially supplied belimumab within the 4 months prior to and/or during pregnancy. The registry will also evaluate outcomes of infants born to mothers who were exposed to belimumab within the 4 months prior to and/or during pregnancy. This registry will add to the current clinical experience with belimumab and will complement reproductive data from animal toxicology studies. It will also assist clinicians in weighing the potential risks against...
Benefit of Scarf Support on Skin-to-skin Time and Portage in Neonatology and at Home
Carrying (or kangaroo carrying) is known to reduce neonatal and child morbidity and mortality and improves the quality of survival of premature and term children during the most fragile growth period, the first thousand days of life. Carrying is also a growing brain protection technique and becomes a routine of care in all neonatal units around the world. In University hospital of Saint-Etienne, the developmental care program has been developed since 2002 in all neonatology units and advocates the practice of skin-to-skin carrying between the parent (father or mother) and his baby, from the time of the hospitalization. Professionals in...
BENLYSTA® Special Drug Use Investigation
The objective of this study is to collect and assess the information about long-term safety and effectiveness of Benlysta for intravenous injection and Benlysta for subcutaneous injection (hereinafter referred to as "Benlysta") in daily clinical practice. The aim of conducting this drug use investigation (DUI) in all subjects until data are accumulated from a certain number of subjects after Benlysta being marketed, data will be collected on safety and effectiveness of Benlysta in an early stage and thereby to take the necessary measures for proper use of Benlysta. Approximately 600 subjects will be enrolled in to this study. The ...
Biochemical Correction of Severe EB by Allo HSCT and "Off-the-shelf" MSCs
This is an open-label, single institution, phase II study in patients with epidermolysis bullosa (EB). The underlying hypothesis is that the infusion of bone marrow or umbilical cord blood from a healthy unaffected donor will correct the collagen, laminin, integrin, or plakin deficiency and reduce the skin fragility characteristic of severe forms of EB. A secondary hypothesis is that mesenchymal stem cells from a healthy donor will enhance the safety and efficacy of the allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant as well as serve as a source of renewable cells for the treatment of focal areas of residual blistering.
BioDay Registry: Data Collection Regarding the Use of New Systemic Treatment Options in Patients With Atopic Dermatitis
The BioDay Registry aims to address the need for daily practice data regarding the effectiveness and safety of new systemic treatment options in patients with AD and effect on other atopic comorbidities in a multicenter setting. The registry already consists of several additional modules concerning atopic comorbidities, like food allergy and asthma, and a module for conjunctivitis during dupilumab treatment.
Biology of Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformations and Prognosis of Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformations
The cerebral arteriovenous malformations correspond to the formation of an entanglement of morphologically abnormal vessels called nidus, which shunt the blood circulation directly from the arterial circulation to the venous circulation. The cerebral arteriovenous malformations are an important cause of hemorrhagic stroke. The hypothesis is that cerebral haemorrhage associated with a cerebral arteriovenous malformations would come from peri-nidal micro-vessels, in connection with infiltration of leucocytes and / or defective maintenance of microvascular integrity by platelets.
Bleach vs. Bubbles: Assessing the Impact of the Bathroom Environment on Eczema
Purpose: Evaluate the impact of cleaning the bathroom environment on the severity of eczema. Determine if part of the efficacy of bleach baths may be in cleaning the bathroom. Record data on the process in order to improve future interventions. Participants: Patients and families with eczema Procedures (methods): - Obtain baseline eczema severity scores and bacterial cultures from bathtubs - Randomize subjects to receive (1) a bathtub culture alone; (2) a culture and bathroom cleaning; and (3) a culture, cleaning, and bleach baths. - Measure changes in eczema severity scores over 4 weeks - Qualitatively...
Bone Health in Patients With Atopic Dermatitis
This study examines the bone health in children with atopic dermatitis
BUBOLight®, a New Phototherapy Device for the Treatment of the Newborn's Jaundice
About 50% of full-term newborns and 80% of premature infants develop jaundice which is due to hyperbilirubinemia. In the majority of cases, jaundice disappears naturally without treatment within three weeks of birth, but the bilirubin level may remain too high, which can lead to a serious neurological disease: kernicterus. To avoid this, a therapeutic management must be instituted, and in some cases, one or more phototherapy sessions (PT) may be prescribed. The aim of this trial is to evaluate the safety and level of satisfaction of parents and healthcare team with one innovative device for phototherapy BUBOLight® included two removable ...
