There are about 162 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in United Arab Emirates. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
A quantitative prospective cohort study will be conducted, where blood samples will be collected at different timings during the IVF protocol, to assess the impact of fertility medications on metabolic parameters of patients undergoing IVF treatment.
Poor glycemic control in patients with Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) is due to multiple factors and suboptimal dietary pattern is one of them .Assessing eating/dietary patterns (combinations of different foods or food groups) among individuals with diabetes may be beneficial in understanding the focus areas of dietary modification among the Emirati community and further developing dietary interventions for management of T2D. Only a few observational studies are reported in this region exploring the eating practices, although none to the investigators knowledge described the frequency of consumption of food groups in the T2D patients in the United Arab Emirates(UAE). Hence, in this study the investigators aim to describe the trends in frequency of consumption of food groups and analyze the association of frequency of food item consumption and glycemic control among the T2D UAE patients. This retrospective cross sectional study will include the data from Hospital information system of 800+ T2D patients to describe the trends in frequency of consumption of food groups and analyze the possible association of frequency of food group/item consumption and glycemic control.
SevEos is a cross-sectional, multi-center, non-interventional study aimed to describe the treatment patterns in 250 severe asthma patients across the Gulf region. In addition, the study will determine the current level of asthma control and quality of life in these patients; describe the exacerbation patterns; and determine the current levels of blood eosinophils for the enrolled patients.
The investigators propose to undertake a controlled dietary intervention study in UAE subjects with visceral obesity to examine the feasibility of a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and/or whole-grain fiber in the UAE population. The research will also investigate the longer-term influence of increased fruits, vegetables and fiber consumption on health and its capacity to sustain lifestyle change.
Step-down approach and late follicular phase progesterone level
For shoulder analgesia, both ISO block and low volume scalene (LVS) block (using 5 ml of local anesthetics) are suggested to have a low incidence of hemi-diaphragmatic pariesis (HDP). The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of HDP and the analgesic efficacy of the LVS block versus ISO block.
Observational study to evaluate, under real-world practice conditions, the safety and effectiveness of regorafenib in patients diagnosed with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (uHCC)
This is a Phase III/IV, single-arm, multicenter study of the long-term safety and efficacy of atezolizumab treatment in participants with Stage IIIb or Stage IV NSCLC who have progressed after standard systemic chemotherapy (including if given in combination with anti-programmed cell death protein 1 [anti-PD-1] therapy or after anti-PD-1 as monotherapy). The study will consist of a Screening Period, a Treatment Period, a Treatment Discontinuation Visit, and a Follow-Up Period.
To examine the impact of health determinants at the individual (e.g. health related behaviors) and societal level (e.g. environmental factors, health related policy, quality of health systems) on health outcomes (e.g. death, non-communicable disease development) across a range of socioeconomic and health resource settings. Additional components of this study will examine genetic factors for non-communicable diseases. This will be examined both through a cross sectional component, and prospectively (cohort component).
It had been shown that high percentage of severe preeclampsia patients got a high cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) due to abnormal autoregulation of cerebral blood vessels with associated endothelial dysfunction and disrupted blood brain barrier. Moreover, patients with high CPP is more likely to present with headache compared to other patients with normal CPP.In this particular scenario, use of magnesium sulphate is associated with marked reduction of CPP and. hence prevention of cerebral damage.This hypothesis was confirmed by new magnetic resonance techniques that demonstrated brain edema in eclampsia/ severe preeclampsia patient mostly due to vasogenic edema and less commonly attributed to cytotoxic edema. Changes in the optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) mirrors the changes in the Intracranial pressure(ICP), subsequently when the intracranial pressure increases the optic nerve sheath diameter (ONDS) also increases. The aim of this study is to determine the effect Magnesium sulphate infusion on intracranial pressure, in patients presented with severe preeclampsia by measuring changes in the ONSD using ultrasound examination.
