NCT ID: NCT00842101 Completed - Tibial Fractures Clinical Trials

Compartmental Overpressures Associated to Reamed Intramedullary Nails

Start date: December 2005
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of reamed intramedullary nails in tibial shaft fractures (as a standard treatment), in raising intracompartmental pressures and therefore determine if they are a risk factor for compartmental syndrome.

NCT ID: NCT00656747 Completed - Chronic Bronchitis Clinical Trials

Moxifloxacin Versus Amoxicillin Clavulanic Acid in Treatment of Acute Exacerbation of Chronic Bronchitis

Start date: March 2008
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

A study to assess the safety and efficacy of moxifloxacin compared to that of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid for the treatment of subjects with acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis.

NCT ID: NCT00473460 Completed - Lung Diseases Clinical Trials

Intermittent Moxifloxacin Therapy For The Prevention Of Acute Exacerbations In Patients With Chronic Bronchitis

Start date: October 2004
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Moxifloxacin, is being tested at approximately 60 study centres in 15 countries to determine if this drug, when taken periodically in addition to the patients normal treatment, is effective at reducing the number of flare-ups of chronic bronchitis he has. Approximately 1132 subjects will participate, and it is expected that the study will run for 2 years in order to reach that goal. The patients individual involvement in the study will be 17 months. Moxifloxacin will be compared to a placebo drug (no active ingredients). The study medication (moxifloxacin or placebo) will be taken in addition to the patients normal medication for chronic bronchitis. In addition to the first clinic visit, called a screening visit, the patient will be required to come back to the clinic for ten more study visits, every 8 weeks. At the first visit the study co-ordinator will provide him with the dates for all the visits. Over a period of 48 weeks the patient will return to the clinic on 6 occasions where he will receive the study medication which he will take for five days, in addition to his normal treatment for chronic bronchitis. After this time the patient will enter a follow up period for 24 weeks, where he will come to the clinic for assessments and continue to take his normal medication but not receive the study drug. A complete medical history will be taken at the first visit, including the patients past and current smoking habit. A breath test will be performed to assess how well his lungs are functioning. In addition, he will also be asked to provide a sputum sample for a microbiological examination to identify any bacteria present in the sample. The patient must be able to provide a sputum sample at the screening visit. If the patient meets all the inclusion / exclusion criteria for the study, he will be allocated randomly to one of the following treatment groups at the second visit.- Treatment group 1: Receives moxifloxacin orally once daily for five days.- Treatment group 2: Receives a matching placebo once daily for five days.In between each visit (four weeks after your clinic visit), the study site co-ordinator will contact the patient to check on his well being. If the patient or the doctor decides to stop the patients participation in the trial for any reason, the patient will be required to return to the clinic for a physical examination, take a breath test, provide a sputum sample (if possible) and have a blood sample taken.

NCT ID: NCT00439777 Completed - Pulmonary Embolism Clinical Trials

Oral Direct Factor Xa Inhibitor Rivaroxaban in Patients With Acute Symptomatic Pulmonary Embolism - The EINSTEIN PE Study

Start date: March 2007
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This is a multicenter, randomized, open-label, assessor-blind, event-driven, non-inferiority program for efficacy with a study treatment duration of 3, 6 or 12 months in patients with confirmed acute symptomatic pulmonary embolism (PE) with or without symptomatic Deep-Vein Thrombosis (DVT) (Einstein-PE).

A Trial Assessing LAS34273 in Moderate to Severe Stable Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Start date: August 2006
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of LAS 34273 compared to placebo in patients with moderate to severe COPD during one year of treatment.
