Most European surgeons prefer the use of Intracameral (IC) antibiotics whereas topical fluoroquinolone that prescribed perioperatively is the most common pattern in the United state(US). The current study aimed to evaluate the effectivity ...
To explore in a pilot randomized clinical trial, the impact of Home Blood Pressure Monitoring with patient directed information as compared to usual care on the postoperative management of blood pressure.

Eligible patients have multiple myeloma with measurable disease in the blood and a targetable soft tissue or bony lesion with radiotherapy. All eligible patients will receive immunotherapy (Nivolumab) plus radiotherapy, 6 Gy x 5 fractions, to a targetable lesion. Immunotherapy treatment starts with the first radiotherapy fraction. Nivolumab will be given every 2 weeks. Patients will have specified laboratory values measured bi-monthly and evaluated for response at 12 weeks as d...
Indirect promontofixation with prostheses is the standard surgical technique for the reference of uterine prolapse. There is no validated examination to control the position of the prostheses postoperatively. These prostheses are echogenic and perineal ultrasound could be a means of postoperative monitoring. There is no data in the literature on the relationship between prosthesis position and postoperative symptoms
The present study aims to evaluate management of neonates with neonatal sepsis admitted to the Neonatology Unit, Assiut University Children Hospital according to the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics, 2018, searching for defects, obstacles, or needs to improve the management of such cases. We consider that this critical appraisal of our own performance, is a crucial step before any further corrections or developments of that performance could take place.
Validation of a Test System to develop new medications for alcoholism (TEMA) The 'TEMA', a progressive-work alcohol self-administration paradigm, can be validated by reproducing the effect of Acamprosate and prove the effect of Calcium to reduce motivation to work for alcohol after 14 - 19 days of treatment during a period of 15 - 20 days of alcohol abstinence in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled three-arm parallel-group design.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the experimental medication BMS-986224 in participants with varying levels of renal function.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic (PK), and pharmacodynamic (PD) profiles of escalating doses of RMC-4630 monotherapy in adult participants with relapsed/refractory solid tumors and to identify the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of the experimental medication BMS-986256 in healthy participants.
Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of FOLFOX + Panitumumab Followed by FOLFIRI + Bevacizumab (Sequence 1) Versus FOLFOX + Bevacizumab Followed by FOLFIRI + Panitumumab (Sequence 2) in Untreated Patients With Wild-type RAS Metastatic, Primary Left-sided, Unres
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of FOLFOX + panitumumab followed by FOLFIRI + bevacizumab (Sequence 1) versus FOLFOX + bevacizumab followed by FOLFIRI + panitumumab (Sequence 2) in untreated patients with wild-type RAS metastatic, primary left-sided, unresectable colorectal cancer
Inserting a Bladder catheter during catheter ablation is standard practice at most Institutions. Unfortunately, bladder catheters are associated with adverse outcomes, including catheter associated cystitis, hematuria, dysuria, and urethral damage. The investigator proposes a prospective, randomized clinical trial comparing group A that will receive a catheter during the ablation procedure and group B that will not receive the procedure. The Investigator hypothesizes the group...
This is a multi-centre, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose escalation first in human (FIH) study in healthy adults and in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease. The study is designed to systematically assess the safety (including immunogenicity) and tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), and pharmacodynamics (PD) of AL002.
The main purpose of this study is to investigate the long-term safety and tolerability of TAK-935/OV935 as an adjunctive therapy in patients with epileptic seizures.
The current phase II trial is designed to investigate the immunogenicity, safety and tolerability of MV-CHIK as well as the long-term durability of anti-Chikungunya antibody response after administration of different dose levels of MV-CHIK in three different formulations. A randomised, observer-blinded study design was chosen to allow an objective recording and assessment of all adverse events.
The primary objective is based on Week 12 co-primary endpoints of PASI (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index) 75 and sPGA (Static Physician's Global Assessment) 0/1, and overall safety Secondary objectives are to evaluate the safety of BI 730357 through 24 weeks of treatment, and the effects of dose escalation and longer treatment duration on efficacy
A Phase 2 study to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of TD-1473 in subjects with moderately-to-severely active Crohn's Disease with up to 36 weeks of treatment.
Caring for a family member after a stroke can be very difficult and worsen the physical and mental health of untrained caregivers. The Telephone Assessment and Skill-Building Kit (TASK III) intervention is a unique, comprehensive caregiver intervention program that enables caregivers to develop the necessary skills to manage care for the survivor, while also taking care of themselves. The long-term goal of this study is to offer training and support for family caregivers throug...
This is a multi-center, prospective, single-arm phase I/Ib safety trial. Patients eligible for treatment must be diagnosed with non-metastatic, biopsy-proven p16-negative histology squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity, oropharynx, larynx, or hypopharynx, and must be eligible and amenable to surgical resection.
The main aim of the current study is to assess cardiovascular effects of remote ischemic conditioning in patients who have suffered from stroke. A group of stroke patients will be subjected to four weeks of daily remote ischemic conditioning and four weeks of placebo and vascular function is assessed as a primary outcome.
Background Fractures of the distal radius are among the most common. Major complications, including irritation and rupture of the extensor tendons, may occur if epiphyseal screws of inappropriate length are used. Questions/Purposes The main objective of the present study was to determine whether the optimal epiphyseal screw length can be determined by reference to the diaphyseal screw length. Methods Forty CT scans were semi-automatically segmented. A 3D model of the vo...
There is evidence that the current dosing recommendations of ceftazidime in hemodialysis patients may not reach the critical pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamics thresholds associated with maximal efficacy. The primary objective is to assess whether the standard doses of ceftazidime (1 or 2 g) administered at the end of the dialysis session (intermittent dialysis) allow to obtain a trough level equal or superior to 8 mg/L if the causative organism is not identified or 1 x th...
Background: The worldwide prevalence of obesity has tripled since the 1980s. Metabolic imprinting through early childhood nutrition seems to play an important role in the aetiology of obesity. Overweight at age two and later in life is associated with excessive weight gain as early as three months of age. Breastfeeding in the first year of life appears to be a protective measure against risks for obesity development. Objective: of the "Josef Ressel Centre for Early Life Metabo...
