For example view clinical trials on Prostate Cancer.
While perinatal ischemic stroke is the most frequent form of childhood stroke, early determinants of outcome remain poorly understood. Two main structural biases limit the accuracy of most studies: heterogeneity of the population and short follow-up. Perinatal ischemic stroke includes several conditions that differ in pathophysiology and timing of occurrence. Yet, it is not surprising that risk factors and outcome depend primarily on the type of stroke. Age at evaluation also ...
The objective of this Clinical Trial is to define the methods to be used to document that illumigene® Mycoplasma Direct meets its intended use claims, using the illumipro instrument, with throat swab samples collected from symptomatic patients.
Surgery plays a central role in kidney cancer management being the only therapy that offers the possibility of healing the patients. Currently, the partial nephrectomy is a standard technique because it meets the principle of nephron sparing surgery. A partial nephrectomy requires a control of the renal blood flow using a clamp, which can be parenchymal or vascular (pedicular). In France, most of the centers use pedicular clamping. It is well established that this technique res...
The goal of this project is to create a biological collection of blood samples from patients with advanced stage IIIB/IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with clinical annotations.
The purpose of this study is to determine if Cyrcadia's Circadian Biometric Recorder (CBR™), which is attached to soft biometric patches worn on the body, can improve early breast cancer detection along with mammography or as a stand alone device.
The purpose of this study is to compare the use of an electronic incontinence identification system with nursing home support (Tena Identifi) versus usual care on the quality, resource use and outcomes of continence care for older residents of nursing care homes.
Young infants are most vulnerable to severe disease and even death when infected with Bordetella Pertussis. The current vaccines and vaccination programs do not guarantee protection of neonates. During the last weeks of pregnancy, maternal IgG antibodies are transferred actively to the fetus. Administration of a pertussis containing vaccine during pregnancy offers protection through high titers of maternal antibodies transferred to the child. Since transplacental transport is i...
Multi-center, single stage, phase II study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Flumatinib in accelerated or blastic Phase chronic myelogenous leukemia patients.
In western Kenya the prevalence of malaria in
The appearance of intact macronutrients in the small intestine induces an intestinal brake; a negative feedback mechanism from different parts of the intestine to the stomach, the small intestine and to the central nervous system. These processes inhibit food processing, appetite sensations and food intake, and furthermore they increase feelings of satiety and satiation. Several studies showed that intraileal infusion of nutrients resulted in a reduction in food intake. However...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Systane® Balance following 90 days of QID (4 times/day) dosing among Indian subjects with dry eye. This study will be conducted in India.
Objectives.-Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive stimulation methods that became widely used as therapeutic tools in neuropsychiatric research. The aim of this study is to Evaluate the therapeutic impact of different frequencies of repetitive transcranial stimulation (1HZ, 10HZ) in OCD patients. Material and Methods; Forty five patients of OCD were participated in the study. All patients fulfilled the diagnostic criteria of DSM-IV-TR. The mean a...
The purpose of this pivotal, phase 3, randomized, multicenter study is to compare VB-111 plus bevacizumab to bevacizumab in adult patients with recurrent GBM.
This study was done to determine whether Simvastatin (a medication commonly used to treat patients with high cholesterol levels in the blood increases blood flow to the kidneys and improves renal function in normal volunteers and patients with impaired renal function secondary to polycystic kidney diseases.
Background: - Chronic hepatitis D is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis D virus. It can be severe and progressive. Most people with hepatitis D will develop scarring and damage to the liver. There is no FDA approved drug to treat chronic hepatitis D. Researchers want to know if the drugs lonafarnib and ritonavir can help people with chronic hepatitis D. Objective: - To find out if treatment of hepatitis D with lonafarnib and ritonavir is safe and effective. ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the test characteristics of a rapid intrapartum real- time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) compared to the intrapartum GBS culture as the standard in preterm patients presenting with threatened preterm labor or with obstetric indications for preterm delivery.
Measurement of the cardiac output is one of the important hemodynamic monitoring tools in cardiac surgery. It helps determine the type of medications needed to maintain optimal hemodynamic status in the entire perioperative period. Thermodilution method using pulmonary artery catheter is considered has the gold standard for the measurement of cardiac output. Investigators would like to compare the most popular minimally-invasive devices used to measure cardiac output using arte...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of a metronome improves chest compression rate and depth during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on a pediatric manikin.
This study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial. The main purpose of this study is to determine if postsurgical pain ratings are improved with treatment with oral Propranolol, and if the effectiveness of treatment can be modified by the presence or absence of SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) associated with Cathecol-O-MethylTransferase (COMT) and mu-opioid receptor (MOR1) activity. The treatment period will last for three days and the observatio...
This study evaluates the current situation and follow-up of chronic HCV infection in patients co-infected with HIV in Andalusia.
Electroconvulsive therapy has been used in clinical practice since 1938, a number of randomized trials found significant differences favoring ECT in response rates between individuals with depression receiving real and sham ECT. Results of early studies performed on patients with schizophrenia weren't so clear, only few of these trials found appreciable differences between real and sham ECT in clinical outcome. The recent, more reliable studies have found that ECT is efficacio...
The purpose of this study is to see whether one dose of palliative radiation therapy directed to the liver in combination with standard BSC might help to reduce liver pain/discomfort due to cancer when compared to getting standard BSC alone.
Allergic patients especially those undergoing de-sensitization treatment have an altered immune responsiveness. The investigators aim to find out whether this influences immune responses to primary and booster vaccinations.
The main objective of this study is to reach 80% circumcised men in a random sample of men living in the township of Orange Farm (South Africa).
