Summary

The objective of this study is to obtain viable mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from umbilical cords in uncomplicated planned cesarean deliveries. Potential donors will be screened prior to donation of umbilical cords to confirm no infectious disease, viruses and/or diseases. The overall goal is to obtain MSCs from healthy donors for eventual transfusion into patients for potential treatment of diseases, such as chronic pancreatitis, systemic sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, COVID 19, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and other diseases in studies approved by the IRB. We also want to store the cells as repository for other potential therapy.

Summary

The primary purpose of this study is to compare extended-release buprenorphine (CAM2038) to buprenorphine placed under the tongue (sublingual) in pregnant women with opioid use disorder to see if CAM2038 is as effective as sublingual buprenorphine. We are looking to recruit pregnant women who are between 18-41 years old; are between 6-30 weeks pregnant and are not planning to terminate the pregnancy; have opioid use disorder, and are enrolled or are planning to enroll in outpatient buprenorphine treatment at The Medical University of South Carolina. Participation in the study would last between 13 and 21 months total with up to between about 63-102 total visits, including weekly medication check visits and research visits.

List of Studies

Keywords

Summary

We propose to play the song "Weightless" during epidural placement on an iPhone set to medium volume. The song (all 6 continual parts) is 43 minutes long and will be started just before epidural placement and stopped just after end of procedure. The control group will be expectant mothers who do not have "Weightless" playing during their epidural placement. The goal is to determine if playing "the most relaxing song in the world" helps to reduce laboring parturients anxiety and improve their overall satisfaction with the experience.
