What is a clinical trial?

Although there are many definitions of clinical trials, they are generally considered to be biomedical or health-related research studies in human beings that follow a pre-defined protocol. We have both interventional & observational types of studies. Interventional studies are those in which the research subjects are assigned by the investigator to a treatment or other intervention, and their outcomes are measured. Observational studies are those in which individuals are observed and their outcomes are measured by the investigators.

December 2014 - December 2015
The purpose of this project is to assess the efficacy of loratadine in decreasing the incidence and severity of bone pain following G-CSF administration in patients with hematologic malignancies, patients undergoing mobilization of hematopoietic progenitor cells, and patients who have undergone an autologous hematopoietic cell transplant. This is a different patient population than those being assessed in current clinical trials.

Fruquintinib administered at 5mg once daily(QD) in 4 weeks treatment cycle (three weeks on and one week off) was well tolerated and demonstrated encouraging preliminary clinical antitumor activity in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) in phase Ib and phase 2 study. This study is aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Fruquintinib in the treatment of patients with metastatic CRC who have progressed after second line or above standard chemotherapy

The investigators plan to recruit patients for a prospective study in patients in need of evaluation for lung lesions suspicious for cancer. Saliva samples will be collected before diagnostic evaluation including biopsy with subsequent blinded examination of the salivary markers without knowledge of the disease status. This prospective recruitment with retrospective blinded evaluation or PRoBE design satisfies the highest standards recommended by the National Cancer Institute for biomarker development. This process limits the selection bias that can confound retrospective studies. As the primary endpoint, a pre-specified multi-marker panel will be evaluated based on the combination of sensitivity and specificity. In addition, seven pre-specified individual candidate mRNA cancer markers and six internal reference or "housekeeping" genes will be evaluated. The performance of new multi-marker panels will also be assessed and compared with the prior pre-specified model based on sensitivity and specificity combinations as well as the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve.

This trial is conducted in the United States of America (USA). The aim of the trial is to investigate the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of Single Doses of NNC0174-0833 in Overweight to Obese but Otherwise Healthy Male Subjects.

Obesity is a medical condition which increases the risk of other diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Obesity-related risk factors for the development of other metabolic diseases include unstable glucose levels and high blood pressure. Dapagliflozin and exenatide are both approved worldwide for treatment of patients with Type 2 Diabetes. Dapagliflozin works by lowering glucose levels by inhibiting the renal reabsorption of glucose and thereby promoting its urinary excretion and energy loss and thereby reduction in body fat. Exenatide exhibits many of the same glucose-lowering actions of that of a naturally occurring hormone and leads to weight loss mainly via reduced energy intake, most likely via a central effect on appetite regulation. The purpose of this exploratory study is to investigate if a combination treatment with dapagliflozin and exenatide have a synergistic effect on weight loss in non-diabetic obese subjects. Subjects will be treated for 24 weeks with either active combination treatment or placebo (non-active treatment). Neither study personnel nor subjects will know what treatment is given.
