This study is try to understand current patients with fibroids and there choices for management. We will follow women through their journey and obtain patient reported outcomes, through questionnaire's, following their current therapies for Uterine Fibroids, including symptoms, quality of life, work productivity impact, and satisfaction.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and benefits of treating mild chronic hypertension (CHTN), or high blood pressure, with medication during pregnancy vs non treatment. Medication prescribed is medication currently approved to treat severe CHTN.
The purpose of this study is to test how safe and effective using Muscle Derived Cells are at treating stress urinary incontinence. Muscled derived cells are normal immature cells found in all muscle, that when stimulated, can grow into normal mature muscle cells. These cells will be obtained from the thigh muscle of subjects via a biopsy and injected back into the subjects around the urethra to grow a new urethral sphincter. This will be done in patients suffering from stress urinary incontinence, which is felt to be due in part to a weak urethral sphincter.
This is a national database to track patient information and outcomes from surgical and non-surgical treatment for pelvic floor disorders. This will allow for best practices to be identified, and will also track surgeons and institutions in order to recognize clinical centers of excellence. Individual practitioners will be able to track their own data on outcomes for reporting purposes.
The purpose of this study is to validate a test developed to determine preterm labor, to determine the optimal time to preform the test, and to discover biomarkers that will date a pregnancy and predict the time to birth.
The purpose of this study is to study an alternative to unopposed estrogen in premenopausal women that have endometriosis-related pain at the time of hysterectomy (removal of the womb). We will compare a type of estrogen alone with another combination medication that has the same type of estrgrogen plus another medication called bazodoxiphene (Duavee). We will compare the effect of Duavee with estrogen alone on endometriosis-associated pain scores after 6 months of therapy.
Long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) services (including the contraceptive implant and intrauterine devices, or IUDs) are the most effective forms of reversible contraception. The immediate postpartum period (inpatient), prior to discharge from the hospital, can be a particularly favorable period to initiate a contraceptive method, reducing the risk of unintended pregnancy as many women resume sexual activity before their postpartum check-up or do not attend this checkup. Women who are pregnant and ineligible for Medicaid and without access to other forms of insurance are eligible to apply for Emergency Medicaid to cover the cost of hospital-based labor and delivery. Currently, Emergency Medicaid does not cover the costs of inpatient postpartum LARCs (or any other form of contraception). South Carolina Medicaid does cover these services, and the three hospitals participating in this study (Greenville Health System, Palmetto Health Richland, and the Medical University of South Carolina) currently provide inpatient LARC services. We propose to offer women delivering at these three hospitals with Emergency Medicaid coverage no-cost postpartum inpatient LARCs. Before they are discharged from the hospital, we will conduct brief surveys with women to assess their contraceptive choices and reasons; we will also review medical charts to describe prenatal care utilization and receipt of contraceptive counseling. The results of this study will inform discussions with South Carolina?s Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) on expanding the scope of Title X Family Planning contracts with hospitals to include inpatient postpartum LARCs so that this population of women has greater access to highly effective contraceptive services and is better able to prevent unintended pregnancies.
The purpose of this study is to test how well patients with heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids respond to a medication called Elagolix. It aims to possibly find out how heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids and related conditions develop and progress and how they can be diagnosed, monitored, or treated, possibly develop tests to identify which patients are likely to have different diseases, respond to the study drug or drugs of the same or similar class, or to predict the progression of the heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids, and to possibly develop new therapies, research methods, or technologies. Participation in the study will last approximately 20 months.
This study is for female subjects with previously untreated Stage III or IV high grade serous epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer. The investigational drug in this study is Veliparib (ABT-888). The purpose of this study is to compare the combination of carboplatin, paclitaxel and veliparib to carboplatin, paclitaxel, and placebo followed by continued therapy with either veliparib or placebo to determine if it slows the progression of your cancer.
This study will evaluate a remote patient monitoring solution for low-risk pregnancies to assess whether or not it produces equivalent care with regards to clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction at a lower cost to the healthcare system and its participants. Furthermore, we will measure the ability of participants to collect and record the necessary data.
