There are about 4433 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Austria. 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 aim of this study is to compare two different surgical methods for treating benign prostatic obstruction (BPO). The investigators are going to compare the risks and benefits of bipolar transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and bipolar transurethral enucleation of the prostate (BipolEP). Furthermore, the investigators are going to compare the amount of tissue resected per minute, in order to assess the efficiency of each surgical method. It is a prospective, interventional, multi-centre (2 centres total), randomized trial. Approximately 84 patients will be included
The aim of this study is to identify whether actively induced dynamic hyperinflation can cause left-ventricular diastolic dysfunction in healthy male subjects in order to explore the mechanisms of developing cardiac dysfunctions in patients with COPD.
Otitis media with effusion (OME) is very common in children and characterized by fluid in the middle ear without signs or symptoms of acute ear infection. Treatment options are tympanostomy tubes and/or adenoidectomy. However OME often reoccurs after these procedures. Goal of this study will be to evaluate the Balloon Eustachian Tuboplasty (BET) in children as an additional treatment option and to assess long-term effects of BET. Beside the standard procedure, children (4 to 10 years of age), with equal pathology on both ears, will be assigned for BET on side.
This study will compare the efficacy and safety of molecularly-guided therapy versus standard platinum-containing chemotherapy in participants with cancer of unknown primary site (CUP; non-specific subset) who have achieved disease control after 3 cycles of first-line platinum doublet induction chemotherapy.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of investigational doses of once weekly dulaglutide when added to metformin in participants with type 2 diabetes with inadequate blood sugar control.
The clinical study is planned as a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, single-centre exploratory clinical study with the aim to investigate the analgesic efficacy of the Neodolpasse® Infusion Solution in comparison to a 75 mg diclofenac only infusion. Included will be Patients receiving elective cruciate ligament surgery. The effectiveness will be measured by the use of additional analgesic medication via PCA during the first 24 hours postoperatively as well as by using a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). Furthermore the local and systemic tolerability and safety of the clinical study medications (i.e. Neodolpasse® Infusion Solution and 75 mg diclofenac only infusion) will be assessed.
Prospective open-label, uncontrolled clinical study to assess the safety and efficacy of autologous cultured epidermal grafts containing epidermal stem cells genetically modified with the aid of a gamma-retroviral vector carrying COL17A1 complementary DNA (cDNA) for restoration of the epidermis in patients with junctional epidermolysis bullosa. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the safety and efficacy after one or more treatments with genetically corrected cultured epidermal autograft (Hologene 17) in patients suffering of junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB) with COL17A1 mutation.
Changes in homocysteine values after bariatric surgery remain controversially discussed. This is the first comprehensive summary to depict timeline changes in homocysteine levels following laparoscopic roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Safety and Efficacy Study of Dutogliptin in Combination with Filgrastim in Early Recovery Post-Myocardial Infarction
Background: Neuronal plasticity is the brain's ability to continuously adapt to experiences and learning of new skills. Although this affects multiple characteristics of the brain such as structure, function and metabolism, direct interactions between these aspects are largely missing. Aim: Using recent advancements in neuroimaging we aim to identify novel relationships how neuronal plasticity is related across these characteristics. Design: 40 healthy subjects will undergo two simultaneous PET/MR measurements at baseline and after 4 weeks. During the measurements a cognitively challenging task will be performed and the training group (20 subjects) will practice during the 4-week period. Implications: We combine simultaneous PET/MR and novel task-specific PET imaging to study brain metabolism, structure and function in a single measurement session. This provides optimal sensitivity for assessment of multimodal neuroplasticity associations. Knowledge how cognitive training affects multiple characteristics of the brain will also increase our understanding of disorders like depression, dementia and brain injuries, since these are diagnosed with cognitive evaluations. Considering the vast usage of the applied imaging procedures in diagnosis and therapy monitoring, the thorough investigation of multimodal associations offers benefit for the interpretability of neuroimaging in clinical routine.
