There are about 7780 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Belgium. 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.
A register and prediction model will be developed to predict the outcome of preterm labour and birth.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the acute effect of propylene glycol and glycerol intake on cardiorespiratory blood parameters.
The purpose of this clinical trial is to identify the highest dose of MEN1309 drug with acceptable safety profile and that can be used in patients affected by CD205-positive solid tumors and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
The aim of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of using rehabilitation-specific gaming in physical therapy of children with cerebral palsy. The primary goal of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of integrating 15 to 20 minutes of gaming using a rehabilitation-specific gaming platform into standard physiotherapy sessions on the achievement of individual goals of children with bilateral spastic cerebral palsy with GMFCS level III-IV. The secondary goal of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of integrating 15 to 20 minutes of gaming using a rehabilitation-specific gaming platform into standard physiotherapy sessions on trunk control and gross motor function of children with bilateral spastic cerebral palsy with GMFCS level III-IV.
Introduction. Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a common chronic gastrointestinal disorder with a high socio-economic impact. Acotiamide, a new prokinetic agent, was shown to be efficacious in the treatment of FD, especially in the postprandial distress syndrome subgroup. To date, the exact mechanism of action of acotiamide is incompletely elucidated. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of acotiamide on gastric motility, gastric emptying rate and gastrointestinal symptom perception in healthy participants in a randomized, placebo-controlled, cross-over study design. Participants were treated with acotiamide (100 mg t.i.d.) and placebo for 3 weeks, separated by a one-week wash-out period. At the end of each treatment period, gastric emptying and motility were assessed on two consecutive study days. During gastric motility assessment, epigastric symptom scores were collected at multiple time points.
The purpose of the study is to assess the efficacy and safety of single-agent olaparib as a maintenance treatment in patients with relapsed High Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer (including patients with primary peritoneal and/or fallopian tube cancer) or high grade endometrioid cancer who do not have known deleterious or suspected deleterious germline BRCA mutations (non-gBRCAm) and who had responded following platinum based chemotherapy.
To derive the maximum tolerated dose of hypofractionated stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) using dose painting by numbers with cyclophosphamide in patients that are reirradiated for recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
Cold laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the gold standard for the management of symptomatic vesicular stones. There is considerable controversy as to whether it should be practiced in outpatient surgery or as part of inpatient surgery, regarding to patient safety. "Minor" surgical procedures, such as anal surgery or simple inguinal hernia interventions, were initially considered eligible for an outpatient procedure. Advances in surgical techniques, anesthesia and early rehabilitation have also made it possible to consider more "heavy" interventions, such as cholecystectomy. The aim of this study is to identify eligible patients for laparoscopic cholecystectomy in outpatient surgery, taking surgical criteria into account.
The aim of this present study is to investigate the use of benralizumab as treatment for severe nasal polyposis. The effect of benralizumab on nasal polyps will be assessed over a 56 weeks of treatment period in patients with severe bilateral nasal polyposis who are still symptomatic despite standard of care therapy, i.e current use of intranasal corticosteroids (INCS) and prior surgery and/or use of systemic corticosteroids. The first 200 patients that complete the 56-week treatment will have a 6 month follow-up (FU) period without dosing.
Sickle cell patients have a high prevalence of alloimmunization. This high rate of alloimmunization can be partially explained by the existence of an antigenic difference between the predominantly Caucasian donor population and the sickle cell patients of African origin. Genetic and environmental risk factors have also been described. The main risk factors that have been shown in retrospective or cross-sectional studies are some HLA alleles, the age of the patient, the number of leukocyte-depleted erythrocyte concentrates (CED) transfused, the number of transfusion episodes, the age of the CEDs, the existence of an inflammatory event at the time of transfusion and the presence of anti-erythrocyte autoantibodies.There is also evidence of an impaired TH response but the underlying immunological mechanism is not fully understood. The aim of this study is to study the prevalence and the risk factors for anti-erythrocyte alloimmunization in pediatric and adult patients with Sickle Cell Disease (with a SS genotype) who are being followed at Queen Fabiola University Children's Hospital (HUDERF) and at the CHU Brugmann Hospital. The identification of risk factors would allow the investigators to improve, or at least adapt, their transfusion policy to certain clinical or immuno-haematological situations.
