There are about 5792 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Australia. 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 to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the study drug ZGN-1061 in participants with type 2 diabetes.
Observational studies among patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) have shown an association with fluid accumulation and increased mortality. Trials among other subgroups of critically ill patients have demonstrated that restricting fluid input after the initial resuscitation appears safe. The objective if this study is to determine whether a fluid restrictive treatment regimen will lead to a lower cumulative fluid balance at 72 hours from randomization in critically ill patients with AKI and whether this approach is safe and feasible.

To evaluate the feasibility of adding induction and maintenance Avelumab to the standard combination of R-CHOP in patients with stage II, III and IV diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL)
To confirm the long-term efficacy and safety of Bronchial Thermoplasty (BT) at 10 years follow-up or beyond in subjects previously enrolled in any of the following Boston Scientific-sponsored, controlled pre-approval studies: AIR, RISA and AIR2.
Aim: In subjects with acute sciatica (≤ 4 weeks duration), this is a pilot comparative effectiveness study to evaluate feasibility and to determine final sample size for a future adequately powered randomised controlled trial of (i) CT-guided transforaminal lumbosacral epidural steroid injection, and (ii) oral dexamethasone, in a masked (blinded), randomised, sham injection and oral placebo controlled trial. Study Design: 60 patients with acute sciatica will randomised 1:1:1:1 to receive either (i) epidural steroid injection & oral placebo, (ii) epidural normal saline injection & oral placebo, (iii) oral dexamethasone & IM sham-injection, (iv) IM sham-injection & oral placebo. Outcomes: The primary outcome is reduction of disability at 3 weeks using the Oswestry Disability Index. Secondary outcomes include reduction of disability at 6 and 48 weeks.
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 study is a phase 2, randomised, placebo-controlled, multicentre study to investigate the safety and efficacy of Deferiprone in participants with Prodromal Alzheimer's Disease (pAD) and Mild Alzheimer's Disease (mAD). In this phase 2 study, the investigators aim to determine whether Deferiprone (15 mg/kg) slows cognitive decline in Alzheimer's patients. As secondary outcomes, safety and iron levels in the brain will be evaluated.
This registry is designed as a multi-centre longitudinal cohort study of patients diagnosed with HCC between 1st January 2013 and 30th June 2018 in nine countries (ie, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore). Approximately 30% of the sample size will be identified retrospectively and 70% will be identified prospectively from the start date of the registry (October 2016), with an even distribution of consecutively diagnosed patients within the different years.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common nocturnal breathing disorder characterized by complete (apnea) and partial (hypopnea) breathing cessations during sleep. Currently, clinical diagnosis of OSA is based on the clinical symptoms, especially excessive daytime sleepiness, and apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) providing a limited overview of the breathing cessation event frequency during the night. Longer obstruction events and deeper desaturations have been suggested to be more harmful than shorter and shallower events and these individual characteristics are completely neglected by conventional and currently used AHI. The investigators have previously introduced novel diagnostic parameters incorporating the number, duration and morphology of individual obstruction events and shown that they improve the severity estimation of OSA compared to traditional measures. Even though, the novel diagnostic parameters have so far tackled some of shortcomings of AHI, they need to be refined to further increase the accuracy of the OSA severity estimation. It has been shown that age, body mass index (BMI) and sleeping position are strongly related to the severity OSA. However, it is not thoroughly studied whether the severity of individual obstruction events progress over time (the aging process) and which factors affect to this progression. In addition, AHI has poor correlation with excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) albeit both of them are used to estimate the severity of OSA. It is known that OSA patients with similar AHI values, durations of individual breathing cessation events can differ significantly. Longer and deeper events are connected to increased mortality rate in patients with moderate or severe OSA and thus, could be considered to be more detrimental than shorter and shallower ones. However, it has not been thoroughly investigated whether in severe OSA patients with identical AHI values, sleep efficiency or hypertension is related to the severity of individual breathing cessation events. The investigators planned to explore, whether the individual breathing cessation event severity progress over time and how different confounding factors affect this progression. Furthermore, the correlation of EDS with the individual breathing cessation event severity, sleep structure, and frequency and occurrence of cortical arousals will be investigated. Also, the investigators will explore whether the percentage time of disturbed breathing from total sleep time is related to sleep efficiency or hypertension in severe OSA patients having similar AHI. Moreover, Positional therapy (PT) i.e., the avoidance of the supine posture during sleep is the treatment of choice for Positional Patients (PP) having most of their breathing abnormalities while sleeping supine. Since it is known that apneas/hypopneas are more severe while sleeping supine, this time the investigators will assess the therapeutic value of PT for severe Non Positional patients (NPP).
