There are about 4198 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.
In this study Triamcinolone acetonide will be applied intratympanically before cochlear implant surgery. After round window exposure, a perilymph sample and simultaneously a blood sample will be drawn. Triamcinolone levels will then be analyzed in the samples.
The study is a phase I multicentre randomized, open, parallel-arm clinical trial conducted to investigate the IMP, namely 111In-CP04. The study consists of preclinical (to establish a clinically useful formulation for the radiolabelled peptide CP04), and a clinical step. The main objective of the clinical part of the project is to establish the safety of i.v. administration of a high peptide amount and to assess the tracer biodistribution and dosimetry in MTC and normal tissues and to determine critical organs as well as the evaluation of the potential of CCK2 receptor scintigraphy to detect cancer lesions for both low (10ug) and high (50ug) peptide amount and the decrease of kidney dose after co-administration of gelofusine /gelaspan as a nephroprotective agent. To achieve this, the following study design has been accepted: the first 4 patients will receive 2 peptide amount of CP04: low peptide amount (for diagnostic purpose) and high peptide amount (for therapeutic purpose) of CP04. If no SAE is present, the remaining pts will be randomized for 2 arms: high peptide amount of 111In-CP04 with and without gelofusine/gelaspan infusion. It is expected that CCK-2/gastrin receptor imaging will become a valid diagnostic method for a specific non-invasive staging and follow-up of patients with MTC, and treatment of recurrent and disseminated disease will be more efficient with minimized nephro- and myelotoxicity (if 111In labelled).
Research project in which blood samples of patients undergoing UVB phototherapy for the treatment of different cutaneous diseases will be investigated for changes of folate levels and further vitamins over the course of treatment.
To evaluate the discriminative power of BIS monitoring to classify the degree of mental state associated with the PCT graded sepsis cascade, and to assess its utility for monitoring the improvement or deterioration of sepsis.
The primary objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of vilaprisan in subjects with uterine fibroids compared to ulipristal The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of different treatment regimens of vilaprisan in subjects with uterine fibroids
This 3-part study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of an oral kallikrein inhibitor, BCX7353, in the treatment angioedema attacks in subjects with Type I or II hereditary angioedema (HAE). In each study part, subjects will treat 3 attacks with BCX7353 (2 attacks) or placebo (1 attack), in a randomly allocated order. In Part 1, the dose of 750mg will be assessed relative to placebo in up to 36 patients. If this is shown to be effective, then a further 12 patients will be enrolled at a 500mg dose (Part 1), followed by a further 12 (if efficacy still shown) at a dose of 250mg (Part 3) to determine the minimum effective dose of BCX7353 compared to placebo for treating HAE attacks. Efficacy will be determined by subject diary entries completed at pre-defined times post-dose.
This study investigates the effect of 4 different methods of rapid sequence induction (RSI) in morbidly obese patients on the amount of air insufflation into the stomach.
The GLOBAL LEADERS Adjudication Sub-StudY, GLASSY, is based on a re-assessment of all the events reported in the dataset of the parent trial (COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF 1 MONTH OF TICAGRELOR PLUS ASPIRIN FOLLOWED BY TICAGRELOR MONOTHERAPY VERSUS A CURRENT-DAY INTENSIVE DUAL ANTIPLATELET THERAPY IN ALL-COMERS PATIENTS UNDERGOING PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTION WITH BIVALIRUDIN AND BIOMATRIX FAMILY DRUG-ELUTING STENT USE) by an independent Clinical Event Committee (CEC), composed of three physicians not involved in the main trial. The substudy include the first 19 top-enrolling sites of the GLOBAL LEADERS to reach the estimated sample size of 7,186 patients for the two co-primary outcomes of death, any non-fatal myocardial infarction, any non-fatal stroke or urgent target vessel revascularization and bleeding events classified as 3 or 5 according to the Bleeding Academic Research Consortium (BARC) criteria. To ensure a comprehensive assessment of clinical events, a triggers logic is adopted to identify other potential events qualifying for study endpoints but not reported as such by local investigators.
Background: Even today, postoperative infection is the commonest complications after surgery although all aseptic precautions are taken and causes significant postoperative morbidity, mortality, prolongs hospital stay, and increases costs. Infections that are related to orthopaedic procedures are considered particularly severe when implantation materials are used which further increases the risk of infection and holds the risk of biofilm formation. This is of particular concern since biofilm-mediated infections are difficult to diagnose and effective treatments are lacking. Therefore, new strategies for implant infection are currently being researched worldwide. In this study the relatively new approach for infection control by using an Er:YAG laser was adapted to an orthopaedic and traumatologic setting. This laser vaporizes all water containing cells in a very effective, precise and predictable manner and shows only a minimal thermal damage. Methods: For preliminary testing 42 steel pins and 42 plates were cultivated with cocultures for 2 weeks. The minimally necessary laser energy for biofilm removal was determined. We subsequently compared the effectiveness of biofilm removal with the Er:YAG laser and a cleansing of the metal implants with Octenidine soaked gauze. The temperature rise within the metal during the laser procedure was also measured. In order to achieve an approximation to a clinical setting we want to compared the same effectiveness of biofilm removal similarly on steel pins directly after explantation from patients treated with external fixators for at least 2 weeks. Sonication and SEM will be used for analysis. Preliminary Results Laser fluences exceeding 2.8J/cm2 caused a complete extinction of all living cells by a single laser impulse. Temperature rise within the implant is dependent on repetition frequency but overall negligible. The effectiveness of biofilm removal after cleansing with Octenidine soaked gauze and irradiation with the Er:YAG laser will be evaluated on cultivated and extracted pins. Conclusions We want to compare the effectiveness of the Er:YAG laser and Octenidine in the removal of biofilms from half-pins. We hypothesize that thee Er:YAG laser offers a secure, complete and non toxic removal of all kinds of pathogens from steel implants without damaging the implant or possible development of resistances. The precise non-contact removal of adjacent tissue could be an advantage over other disinfectants. Level of Evidence (II-a) Clinical Relevance: Having one more arrow in the quiver for disinfection of percutaneous implants or for septic revision surgery when osteosynthesis equipment or arthroplasties are meant to be left in place would be extremely desirable.
Long-term proton pump inhibitor use has been linked to intestinal dysbiosis, inflammation and gastrointestinal symptoms. Probiotics has been shown to correct dysbiosis, reduce inflammation and strengthen the gut barrier. The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of a three months intervention with a probiotic on intestinal inflammation, bowel symptoms, dysbiosis and gut permeability.
