There are about 176 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.
The purpose of this study is evaluate the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, immunogenicity and anti-tumor effect of of fully human anti - VEGF monoclonal antibody LY00101 and explore the potential prognostic and predictive biomarkers. This study will not take into account the results of molecular-genetic tests of patients enrolled in the study
The study is aiming to describe the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of intravenous meropenem, ertapenem, cefepime, colistin, Ceftazidime/Avibactam , Ceftolozane/Tazobactam , and piperacillin/tazobactam in the plasma and determine how much is removed by Renal Replacement Therapies to ensure adequate dosing
The study aims to investigate the validity of 2 hour post-prandial UCPCR test in paediatric and adult patients with diabetes duration greater than 2 and 5 years, respectively, for the purposes of distinguishing between patients with type 1 diabetes and MODY in the UAE population.
To evaluate the role of Inhibin A as bio marker for the number of mature oocytes, compared to Estradiol
The scientific aims of the project are to understand the genetic basis of Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH) in the Emirati population and estimate the overall prevalence of the disease. In addition, a clinical aim of the project is to explore the effectiveness of screening the relatives of individuals affected by FH and other lipid disorders ("cascade" screening) within Emirati families.
The Health Authority - Abu Dhabi (HAAD) approved the reimbursement of the slow release FAc implant (ILUVIEN) and it is now available for the treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME) in persons who have been previously treated with a course of corticosteroids and did not have a clinically significant rise in intraocular pressure. We performed a retrospective 12-month audit to assess the efficacy and safety of the FAc implant in our clinical practice.
The study aims to identify the number of MODY patients to be found among Emirati women with GDM as the incidence and prevalence of monogenic diabetes among this group of patients is unknown. This will enable improvements in diagnostics, treatment and the counselling of these women.
The study aims to identify novel monogenic phenotypes from specific pedigrees and discover the underlying causal genetic variant using genetic sequencing (Sanger and/or Next Generation Sequencing - Panel/WES/WGS) methodologies in families across the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The purpose of this survey is to collect the data on perceptions, behaviours and awareness related to obesity and obesity management for People with Obesity (PwO) and Health Care Professionals (HCP) treating obesity. Data will be collected via online surveys among each of the respondent groups. The surveys are expected to take approximately 25 minutes to complete and will be unique for PwO and HCP. As a cross-sectional study, there will be no treatment of patients.
This study aims to explore breastfeeding and complementary feeding practices of mothers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and its relation to the early life determinants of obesity and non-communicable diseases (NCDs). This research study will follow a prospective cohort approach. Two hundred and fifty mother-infant pairs will be followed for 18 months. The hypothesis of this research study is that exclusive breastfeeding of the infant will provide potential protective effect against cardiometabolic risk factors. This study will also hypothesize that mothers who exclusively breastfeed their newborns would experience greater postpartum weight and body fat loss than mothers who are not breastfeeding.
