The role of vitamin D in the treatment of nerve pain in diabetes

Print record Print record
Trial Information

Trial summary

Vitamin D deficiency is common amongst people with type 2 diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes frequently develop painful neuropathy ("nerve pain" especially in the feet). The study hypothesis is that vitamin D supplementation may improve symptoms of nerve pain. The study is therefore designed to investigate the impact of vitamin D supplementation on nerve pain in people with type 2 diabetes

International Sarcoma Kindred Study: Identification of inherited risk in individuals with sarcoma

Print record Print record
Trial Information

Trial summary

This study aims to identify inherited risk in individuals with sarcoma to aid in the creation of a research resource consisting of biospecimens and associated data.
Who is it for?
You may be eligible to join this study if you have been diagnosed with sarcoma. 
Study details
Participants will be identified at key sarcoma clinics, asked to complete a questionnarie and provide biospecimens (blood and tissue). The biospecimens will be stored indefinitely in a tissue bank to be utilised by researchers investigating genetic factors contributing to cancer. Information obtained from the questionnaire will be used to ascertain the family history of cancer and other factors that may contribute to development of the disease. The ongoing nature of the project will enable continual provision of important practical information for clinicians and patients leading to more favourable outcomes.
Sarcomas contribute disproportionately to cancer burden in our community, because they affect the young, treatment is costly and prolonged and morbidity and mortality is high. Genetic factors appear important in sarcomas, although they have not been well studied for the adult population. Early detection by identifying those at risk may lead to better prognoses. This project aims to create a vital research resource to enable further study into the genetic factors contributing to the hereditary risk of developing sarcoma.

How androgens exert their anabolic effects. Interaction of testosterone and growth hormone at the hepatic level.

Print record Print record
Trial Information

Trial summary

Observations from previous studies suggest that the full action of GH requires the presence of male hormones like Testosterone (T). We will test the hypothesis that T enhances GH effect acting on the liver. We will compare the body protein production after delivering T exclusively to the liver (capsules) and to peripheral tissues (patch).
The first phase (11 weeks, 6 visits) aims to find the T dose which exposes the liver to normal/physiological T levels.
The second phase (16 weeks, 5 visits) will compare the effect of delivering T to the liver and to peripheral tissues.

Personalised Medicine in Pre-diabetes and Early Type 2 Diabetes

Print record Print record
Trial Information

Trial summary

Prediabetes is a common condition in overweight individuals affecting approximately 35% of
American adults and 30% of Australian adults. Like diabetes, prediabetes is a serious risk
factor for cardiovascular disease, eye, kidney and liver disease, and some types of cancer.

Appropriate blood glucose control is crucial in preventing pre-diabetes complications and
onset of diabetes, yet clinical practice, backed by randomised trials, reports that many
patients treated with standard dietary guidelines or with the first-line treatment of
diabetes patients, metformin, do not improve blood glucose control sufficiently.

The overarching goal of the present project is to improve the efficacy of metformin
mono-therapy in pre-diabetes and early type 2 diabetes.
