Collection of Human Tissue Samples From the Neck Region for Characterization of Its Molecular and Biochemical Signatures
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatment||adults presenting for surgery in the neck area|
|Sponsor||Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes, Florida|
|Start date||November 2014|
|End date||September 2019|
|Trial size||40 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02274805, TRIMD FH 644456|
The purpose of the study is to gather tissue (from the neck region), specimens (blood and urine) and medical record data from many patients and store them in one place so that scientists have the information they need to conduct research and learn about new ways to predict, identify and treat illness, specifically those related to obesity and diabetes.
Collection of brown adipose neck tissue
time frame: Day of scheduled surgery
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Adults aged 18 and older presenting for surgery in the neck area - Able to provide informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - Unable to provide informed consent
|Official title||Collection of Human Tissue Samples From the Neck Region for Characterization of Its Molecular and Biochemical Signatures|
|Principal investigator||Lauren Sparks, PhD|
|Description||This protocol is designed to actively collect biospecimens (specifically, tissue from the neck region) and clinical data for donation to the TRI-MD, specifically, Dr. Sparks' laboratory. These specimens and data will be available to Dr. Sparks for future research activity in accordance with the Florida Hospital and Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes (TRI) policies.|
