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.

Current & upcoming clinical trials - Updated 9/21/2014
September 2014 - October 2015
This trial is conducted in the United States of America (USA). The aim of the trial is to investigate safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics (the exposure of the trial drug in the body) for single doses of NNC9204-0530 alone and in combination with liraglutide in overweight to obese but otherwise healthy male subjects.

By analyzing energetic and biomechanical basis of walking, and the subsequent changes induced by hypoxic vs normoxic training in obese individuals, it may optimize the use of walking in hypoxia to gain perspective for exercise prescription to set up training programs that aim to induce negative energy balance and to deal with weight management. However to the investigators knowledge, the analysis of changes in mechanics, energetics and efficiency of walking after continuous hypoxic training (CHT) has not been performed yet. The aims of the present study were: 1. Comparing the changes in body composition between continuous hypoxic training (CHT) and similar training in normoxia; e.g. continuous normoxic training (CNT) in obese subjects. 2. Comparing the metabolic and energetics adaptations to CHT vs CNT. 3. Finally, comparing the associated body-loss induced gait modification since walking intensity at spontaneous walking speed (Ss) is lower in CHT than in CNT.

This study has several purposes. DCE-MRI will be used to image the tumor. Safety of cetuximab given before surgery will be studied. Cetuximab delivery to the tumor will be studied. In Stage 2 of this study, the safety of cetuximab and PEGPH20 given before surgery will be studied. Also, the effects of PEGPH20 on tumors will be studied.
Sponsor: Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
Study type: Interventional
September 2014 - October 2015
The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of implementing a randomized controlled study of the intervention (Geriatric Assessment followed by an integrated care plan carried out by the multidisciplinary geriatric oncology team) designed to maintain/improve quality of life and functional status in older adults with advanced gastrointestinal, genitourinary or breast cancer referred for first line chemotherapy. Secondarily, the study will investigate the impact of the Geriatric Assessment on the cancer treatment decision of the cancer specialist.

Study type: Interventional
September 2014 - September 2016
Emerging endoscopic techniques are minimally invasive and can mimic the anatomic alterations achieved by surgical sleeve gastrectomy. The study hypothesis is if endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is effective and useful in the treatment of patients with obesity
