There are about 6662 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.
This is a long-term, multi-center, longitudinal, observational study in children with achondroplasia (ACH). The aim is to study height velocity and comorbidities in children with ACH. This is a natural history study and no study medication will be administered.
This study is intended to develop a better method for stopping potentially lethal heart rhythms than currently available defibrillators. This new method, called Unpinning Termination Therapy (UPT), is hypothesized to be effective in stopping these dangerous heart rhythms at lower voltages and energy than current defibrillators. Consequently, UPT may improve survival, reduce patient pain from shocks, and lead to longer lasting and smaller implantable defibrillators.
The main purpose of this study is to demonstrate the superiority of S 95005 in combination with bevacizumab over capecitabine in combination with bevacizumab.
The investigators are conducting a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the antidepressant effects of nitrous oxide in people with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). MDD is a global medical condition that causes significant health and economic burden. Recent studies have shown that a single dose of ketamine, an NMDA-antagonist, has fast and long lasting anti-depressant effect. Nitrous oxide, another NMDA-antagonist, is widely used for anesthesia and analgesia, safer to administer and has fewer side effects than ketamine. A randomized controlled crossover feasibility study showed significant reduction in depressive symptoms at 2 and 24 hours after a single 1-hour treatment session of inhaled nitrous oxide compared with placebo. Nitrous oxide is inexpensive and can be safely administered by any trained clinician. If found to be efficacious, it could be used to provide rapid anti-depressant effect whilst the benefit of traditional anti-depressants has its delayed effect. Another potential application could be in acutely suicidal patients. This investigated-initiated phase 2b trial will enable confirmation and extension of the findings from the feasibility study, and identify the optimal dose and regimen in a broader population of those with MDD. Participants will be randomized to receive a weekly 1-hour inhalational sessions of either nitrous oxide or placebo (oxygen-air mixture) for 4 weeks, and the nitrous group will be further randomly assigned to a dose of 50% nitrous oxide or 25% nitrous oxide. Depression severity will be assessed by a blinded observer pre-treatment and at weekly intervals during and for 4 weeks after treatment using the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, preliminary efficacy, and PK/PD of SCB-313 (recombinant human TRAIL-Trimer fusion protein) administered once via intrapleural injection (SAD) and once daily over 2 to 3 days (MAD)for the treatment of cancer patients with symptomatic malignant pleural effusions requiring drainage.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a new antibiotic, Cefiderocol which works against a wide variety of gram negative bacteria, is equally effective as the antibiotics that are currently used as current standard of care.
To evaluate long-term BOS-free survival outcomes of the OCS™ Lung INSPIRE Trial patients.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of multiple intravenous (IV) infusions at a single dose strength of GB301 in subjects with mild to moderate AD.
Patients with a primary invasive melanoma are recommended to undergo excision of the primary lesion with a wide margin. There is evidence that less radical margins of excision may be just as safe. This is a randomised controlled trial of 1 cm versus 2 cm margin of excision of the primary lesion for adult patients with stage II primary invasive cutaneous melanomas (AJCC 8th edition) to determine differences in disease-free survival. A reduction in margins is expected to improve patient quality of life.
Paget's disease of the bone (PDB) is a metabolic bone disorder which in some individuals can cause pain, bone deformity, arthritis and deafness, although in many patients it does not cause symptoms. Paget's disease has a strong genetic component and SQSTM1 is the most important susceptibility gene. People who inherit mutations in SQSTM1 have a high risk of developing PDB later in life. This study is an extension of the ZiPP (Zoledronate in the Prevention of Paget's) study which was is randomised trial currently in progress to determine if the bisphosphonate zoledronic acid (ZA) can prevent or delay the development of PDB-like bone lesions compared with a dummy treatment (placebo) in people who inherit SQSMT1 gene mutations. Although the ZiPP study will provide information on whether early ZA treatment can favourably influence bone lesion development the significance of this to the patient in terms of symptoms is unclear as yet. The aim of the extension study is to keep these individuals under surveillance for any symptoms or signs of PDB over a further 5 year period and to evaluate if there has been any progression of PDB-like lesions by bone scan at the end of this period.
