Description
PROSPER Trial: A Randomised Trial of Rectal Prolapse Surgery in the Birmingham Clinical Trials Unit

Protocol

Description
ASTRAL is a multicentre, randomized, unblinded clinical trial, comparing revascularisation in addition to medical therapy versus medical therapy alone in patients with atherosclerotic renovascular disease (ARVD). The aim of ASTRAL is to assess whether renal arterial revascularisation with balloon angioplasty and/or endovascular stenting can safely prevent progressive renal failure among patients with ARVD. ASTRAL closed to recruitment in October 2007 having recruited 806 patients, and is now in long term follow up until 2017. The trial is managed by the BCTU at the University of Birmingham.

Psychological resilience - School of Psychology

Description
Our work is concerned with cognitive, affective and social processes that influence behaviour and support adaptation to adversity, stress or change.

Public Health & Clinical Epidemiology

Description
In this research area, there is a strong focus on epidemiological oral health surveys of UK and international patient populations. This has helped identify disease trends and healthcare needs and thus strongly impacts upon healthcare policy and delivery. Importantly, our novel analyses have now identified significant relationships between oral and systemic diseases, including associations between periodontal diseases and cardiovascular disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
