Constipation

About Constipation

Constipation occurs when bowel movements become difficult or less frequent. The normal length of time between bowel movements ranges widely from person to person. Constipation is usually caused by a disorder of bowel function rather than a structural problem. The definition of constipation includes the following:

  • Infrequent bowel movements (typically three times or fewer per week)
  • Difficulty during defecation (straining during more than 25% of bowel movements or a subjective sensation of hard stools), or
  • the sensation of incomplete bowel evacuation
  • Treatments for Constipation

The main treatment of constipation involves the increased intake of water and fiber (either dietary or as supplements). The routine use of laxatives is discouraged, as having bowel movements may come to be dependent upon their use. Enemas can be used to provide a form of mechanical stimulation. However, enemas are generally useful only for stool in the rectum, not in the intestinal tract.

As of today, there is no “best treatment” for Constipation that can relieve all the symptoms and completely cure it. If you or someone you know has been suffering from Constipation, there might be a well suited option for you at Medvin Clinical Research.

Alternative Treatments Through Clinical Trials

Often times, there are new and novel treatments for certain indications that are available to you through FDA approved clinical trials; however, they can be easily missed. At Medvin Clinical Research, we are continuously investigating new treatments and drugs that are being developed by pharmaceutical and biotechnical companies. These studies are specifically designed to test the safety and efficacy of investigational drugs in humans.

The level of involvement in each study can vary depending on the protocol. It can be as simple as authorizing the clinical staff at Medvin to have a copy of your medical records and test results, however, most studies will require you to visit our clinic on a regular basis in order to complete certain diagnostic tests, questionnaires and receive the treatment for the disease.

As an eligible subject, you will be Compensated for your time and travel. Study medication and related medical care including diagnostic tests, physical examinations and blood tests are provided at no charge. Health insurance is not required.

You may be eligible to participate in one of the several Constipation trials that are currently ongoing at Medvin Clinical Research. Contact our clinical staff today!

 

Back Pain

About ConstipationChronic low back pain (LBP), the leading symptom of Axial Spondyloarthritis (SpA), precedes the development of radiographic evidence often by many years. Axial spondylitis is a type of inflammatory arthritis involving the spine and/or sacroiliac joints. Axial spondylitis is strongly related to the presence of the HLA-B27 gene. A genetic test for HLA-B27 is available to confirm the diagnosis.

The treatment will depend on the severity and predominant manifestations of the disease. The basis of treatment management remains physical therapy and pain killer medications along with some injections.

As of today, there is no “one standard treatment” for Chronic Low Back Pain that can relieve all the symptoms and completely cure it. If you or someone you know has been suffering from Chronic Back Pain, there might be a well suited option for you at Medvin Clinical Research.

Crohn’s Disease

Crohn's Disease

Crohn’s disease, also known as regional enteritis, is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus, causing a wide variety of symptoms. It primarily causes abdominal pain, diarrhea vomiting, or weight loss, but may also cause complications outside the gastrointestinal tract such as skin rashes, arthritis, inflammation of the eye, tiredness, and lack of concentration.

Crohn’s disease is caused by interactions between environmental, immunological and bacterial factors in genetically susceptible individuals.

There is no cure for Crohn’s disease and remission may not be possible or prolonged if achieved. In cases where remission is possible, relapse can be prevented and symptoms controlled with medication, lifestyle changes, and, in some cases, surgery. Adequately controlled, Crohn’s disease may not significantly restrict daily living; however, regular treatment for flare-ups is advised.

As of today, there is no “one optimal treatment” for Crohn’s Disease that can relieve all the symptoms and completely cure it. If you or someone you know has been suffering from Crohn’s Disease, there might be a well suited option for you at Medvin Clinical Research.

Diabetes

About Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus type 2 or adult-onset diabetes is a metabolic disorder that is characterized by high blood glucose in the context of insulin resistance and relative insulin deficiency. This is in contrast to diabetes mellitus type 1, in which there is an absolute insulin deficiency due to destruction of islet cells in the pancreas. The classic symptoms are excess thirst, frequent urination, and constant hunger. Type 2 diabetes makes up about 90% of cases of diabetes with the other 10% due primarily to diabetes mellitus type 1 and gestational diabetes. Obesity is thought to be the primary cause of type 2 diabetes in people who are genetically predisposed to the disease or are at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease.

Type 2 diabetes is typically managed by increasing exercise and through dietary modification. If blood glucose levels are not adequately lowered by these measures, medications such as metformin or insulin may be needed. For those who are on Insulin, there is a need to constantly check the blood glucose level.

As of today, there is no “magic pill” for Diabetes that can relieve all the symptoms and completely cure it. If you or someone you know has been suffering from Diabetes, there might be a well suited option for you at Medvin Clinical Research.

Gout

About Gout

Gout is a kind of arthritis that occurs when uric acid builds up in blood and causes joint inflammation.

  • Acute gout is a painful condition that typically affects one joint.
  • Acute gout is a painful condition that typically affects one joint.
  • Chronic gout is repeated episodes of pain and inflammation, which may involve more than one joint.

Gout is caused by having higher-than-normal levels of uric acid in your body. This may occur if:

  • Your body makes too much uric acid
  • Your body has a hard time getting rid of uric acid

The exact cause of Gout is unknown. Gout could be genetic. It is more common in men, in women after menopause, and those who drink alcohol. People who take certain medicines, such as hydrochlorothiazide and other water pills, may have higher levels of uric acid in the blood.

Gout is treated with medicines to relieve symptoms and measures to eliminate causes. Specific treatment depends on whether you are having an acute attack or are trying to prevent future attacks. The most common treatments include NSAIDs, corticosteroids and colchicine.

As of today, there is no “wonder pill” for Gout that can relieve all the symptoms and completely cure it. If you or someone you know has been suffering from Gout, there might be a well suited option for you at Medvin Clinical Research.

Impetigo

About Impetigo

Impetigo, one of the most common skin infections among kids, usually produces blisters or sores on the face, neck, hands, and diaper area. This contagious superficial skin infection is generally caused by one of two bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes.

Impetigo usually affects preschool and school-age children. A child may be more likely to develop impetigo if the skin has already been irritated by other skin problems, such as eczema, poison ivy, insect bites, and cuts or scrapes due to minor trauma.

Good hygiene can help prevent impetigo, which often develops when there is a sore or a rash that has been scratched repeatedly (for example, poison ivy can get infected and turn into impetigo). Doctors can usually diagnose impetigo based on the appearance of the rash. Occasionally, they may need to take a sample of fluid from blisters. Impetigo is typically treated with either an antibiotic ointment or medication taken by mouth.

As of today, there is a keen need of a medication in the market that is fast acting and safe enough for children in treating this disease. If you or a loved one has been suffering from Impetigo, there might be a well suited option for you at Medvin Clinical Research.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

About Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects your large intestine (colon). Irritable bowel syndrome commonly causes cramping, abdominal pain, bloating gas, diarrhea and constipation. Despite these uncomfortable signs and symptoms, IBS doesn’t cause permanent damage to your colon..

IBS is often classified into four subtypes based on a person’s usual stool consistency. These subtypes are important because they affect the types of treatment that are most likely to improve the person’s symptoms. The four subtypes of IBS are

  • IBS with constipation (IBS-C)
    • hard or lumpy stools at least 25 percent of the time
    • loose or watery stools less than 25 percent of the time
  • IBS with diarrhea (IBS-D)
    • loose or watery stools at least 25 percent of the time
    • hard or lumpy stools less than 25 percent of the time
  • Mixed IBS (IBS-M)
    • hard or lumpy stools at least 25 percent of the time
    • loose or watery stools at least 25 percent of the time
  • Unsubtyped IBS (IBS-U)
    • hard or lumpy stools less than 25 percent of the time
    • loose or watery stools less than 25 percent of the time

Most people with IBS find that symptoms improve as they learn to control their condition. Only a small number of people with irritable bowel syndrome have disabling signs and symptoms.

Though there is no cure for IBS, the symptoms can be treated with a combination of the following:

  • changes in eating, diet, and nutrition
  • medications (Fiber supplements, laxatives, anti-diarrheal etc)
  • probiotics
  • therapies for mental health problems

As of today, there is no “one optimal treatment” for IBS that can relieve all the symptoms and completely cure it. If you or someone you know has been suffering from IBS, there might be a well suited option for you at Medvin Clinical Research.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)

About Constipation

Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.

Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because its signs and symptoms often mimic those of other ailments. The most distinctive sign of lupus — a facial rash that resembles the wings of a butterfly unfolding across both cheeks — occurs in many but not all cases of lupus

SLE is much more common in women than men. It may occur at any age, but appears most often in people between the ages of 10 and 50. African Americans and Asians are affected more often than people from other races.

There is no cure for SLE. The goal of treatment is to control symptoms through:

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) treat arthritis and pleurisy

Corticosteroid creams to treat skin rashes

An antimalaria drug (hydroxychloroquine) and low-dose corticosteroids for skin and arthritis symptoms

You should wear protective clothing, sunglasses, and sunscreen when in the sun.

As of today, there is no “wonder pill” for Lupus that can relieve all the symptoms and completely cure it. If you or someone you know has been suffering from SLE, there might be a well suited option for you at Medvin Clinical Research.

Osteoarthritis (OA)

About Osteoarthritis (OA)

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people around the world. Often called wear-and-tear arthritis, osteoarthritis occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears down over time. Causes include aging joints, previous injuries, and obesity, among others. Symptoms of osteoarthritis include joint pain and stiffness.

While osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, neck, lower back, knees and hips.

Osteoarthritis gradually worsens with time, and no cure exists. But osteoarthritis treatments can slow the progression of the disease, relieve pain and improve joint function. There is no special osteoarthritis diet, but weight loss may improve symptoms of osteoarthritis.

As of today, there is no “wonder pill” for Osteoarthritis that can relieve all the symptoms and completely cure it. If you or someone you know has been suffering from OA, there might be a well suited option for you at Medvin Clinical Research.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

About Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

Rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, is a form of inflammatory arthritis and an autoimmune disease. For reasons no one fully understands, in rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system – which is designed to protect our health by attacking foreign cells such as viruses and bacteria – instead attacks the body’s own tissues, specifically the synovium, a thin membrane that lines the joints. As a result of the attack, fluid builds up in the joints, causing pain in the joints and inflammation that’s systemic – meaning it can occur throughout the body.

RA is a chronic disease, meaning it can’t be cured. Most people with RA experience intermittent bouts of intense disease activity, called flares. The symptoms and course of RA vary from person to person and can change on a daily basis. Your joints may feel warm to the touch and you might notice a decreased range of motion, as well as inflammation, swelling and pain in the areas around the affected joints. RA is symmetrical, meaning if a joint on one side of the body is affected; the corresponding joint on the other side of the body is also involved.

There is no known cure for rheumatoid arthritis. To date, the goal of treatment in rheumatoid arthritis is to reduce joint inflammation and pain, maximize joint function, and prevent joint destruction and deformity. Two classes of medications are used in treating rheumatoid arthritis: fast-acting “first-line drugs” and slow-acting “second-line drugs” (also referred to as disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs or DMARDs). The first-line drugs, such as aspirin and cortisone (corticosteroids), are used to reduce pain and inflammation. The slow-acting second-line drugs, such as methotrexate, and hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil), promote disease remission and prevent progressive joint destruction. In addition to that, there are multiple biologics (injections and infusions) available to treat and control the symptoms of RA

As of today, there is no “magic drug” for RA that can relieve all the symptoms and completely cure it. If you or someone you know has been suffering from RA, there might be a well suited option for you at Medvin Clinical Research.
