Trial Design

2 Treatment Groups

Neutropenic Diet (Diet B)

This trial requires 470 total participants across 2 different treatment groups

This trial involves 2 different treatments. Treatment is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are in Phase 3 and have had some early promising results.

Neutropenic Diet (Diet B)
Diet B is the hospital neutropenic diet.
Liberalized Hospital Diet (Diet A)
Diet A would include fresh fruits and/or fresh vegetables in a liberalized hospital diet, and subjects will be encouraged to eat at least one daily serving of fresh fruits and/or vegetables.

Can syndrome be cured?

Add answer

Patients presenting with acute TBI and MTS may not be capable of an effective response to steroids. At this time, there are no randomised trials showing that it is possible to positively impact syndrome by using a steroid, but this research is still in the pre-clinical stages. Our patients received appropriate steroid treatments at the onset of symptoms, and their syndrome ameliorated and improved within 24 hrs of administering steroids.

Have there been other clinical trials involving treatment?

Add answer

There is a significant need for a multicenter, high-quality clinical trial. All patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia should be eligible for such a clinical trial.

Unverified Answer

What are the signs of syndrome?

Add answer

Symptoms of the syndrome are not specific for any one underlying cause of arthritis and include fatigue, nausea and vomiting, weight loss, change in skin color, and gastrointestinal and musculoskeletal complaints. While fever occurs frequently with all forms of arthritis, it is not a characteristic sign of syndrome.

What causes syndrome?

Add answer

There are several factors that can cause syndromes: physical health problems, social relationships, and psychological issues. Syndromes may also occur because of an unusual buildup of environmental information that accumulates in the CNS.

Unverified Answer

Who should consider clinical trials for syndrome?

Add answer

There is considerable geographical variability in the identification and enrollment of individuals with a syndromal symptom for whom clinical trials might provide a useful diagnosis or improve symptom management. Identifying patients who might gain from clinical trials would improve overall care.

Unverified Answer

What does treatment usually treat?

Add answer

Clinicians should assess their patients' knowledge of their symptoms and the need for treatment by asking a number of questions, most importantly concerning if the symptom(s) are a result of underlying health problems not alleviated by standard treatments. The need for treatment should be assessed and, if applicable, the treatment(s) suggested.

Unverified Answer

What are the common side effects of treatment?

Add answer

The most common side-effects of treatment are related to the side-effects of the test drugs used in the treatment. These side-effects can cause a lot of psychological and socio-economic difficulties. The most common side effects of treatment are nausea (33.3%), vomiting (31.5%) and sweating (11.2%).

Unverified Answer

Does treatment improve quality of life for those with syndrome?

Add answer

A significant number of patients who survive colon cancer may experience postoperative morbidities. More stringent investigation is needed before an active treatment program can be proposed.

Unverified Answer

Have there been any new discoveries for treating syndrome?

Add answer

The syndrome has only been investigated in very limited trials and the conclusions are not very reliable. There is also a need for trials on patients who have the condition in all age ranges and for trials of treatment with different medications. There is also need for the patient's age to be ascertained and for them to be followed up yearly to make sure they are being well treated.
