There are about 29 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Bahrain. 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.
Colonoscopy is one of the most commonly performed outpatient procedure for diagnosis and treatment of lower gastrointestinal tract disorders. It has been largely accepted as an effective tool for colorectal cancer(CRC) screening, given its ability to detect and remove identified polyps. Increased colonoscopy utilization is associated with the observed decline in the incidence of CRC and its diagnosis at earlier stages. Diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy can successfully be performed using moderate sedation in the ambulatory setting. Techniques of sedation must guarantee the comfort and safety of patients, and at the same time allow a rapid turnover of patients.. An anaesthetic agent with rapid onset and offset of action, and convenient titration of anaesthetic/analgesic depth as well as rapid recovery to enable discharge from the endoscopy unit as soon as possible would be ideal as most such procedures are performed in the Non-Operating Room Anaesthesia(NORA) settings. There is recent interest in the use of Remifentanil, in endoscopic units as it might have advantages over other drugs because of its profound analgesic effects, rapid onset and offset time and rapid titration to the individual patient's requirements and intermittent pain during colonoscopy. The aim of this randomized study is to test the hypothesis that a colonoscopy of good quality in terms of pain relief, patient comfort and discharge times with less cardiorespiratory side effects can be performed using Remifentanil as a sole agent as compared with the standard midazolam/fentanyl protocol. The second group combining Remifentanil with Midazolam is taken to evaluate if there is any advantage of adding an anxiolytic amnesic drug as used in the standard Midazolam/Fentanyl Protocol.
Selection of side of embryo biopsy that will not interfering with implantation power of developed blastocyst embryo during biopsy procedure arranged for PGT.
The investigators aim to experimentally manipulate presence of questions on positive or negative affective attitudes to see if including these moderate as intention to become an organ donor. The methodology will be replicated across three international sites (RCSI Dublin, RCSI Bahrain, RCSI Perdana University).
A Multi-Centre, Phase II, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to investigate Efficacy and Safety of Sevuparin Infusion for the Management of Acute Vaso-Occlusive Crisis (VOC) in Subjects with Sickle-Cell Disease (SCD).
Comparing the efficacy of tow factors for artificial Oocyte Activation for poor quality Oocytes and Teratozoospermia patients.
Novel approach for Oocyte fertilization failure for difficult cases not respond to traditional methods of assisted reproduction as intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
Expecting using bipolar RF at six points, in spite of potentially consuming more intraoperative time, to be more effective and long lasting in the management of pain resultant from chronic sacroiliac joint arthropathy than the other 2 techniques using the monopolar RF even if using six points.
In this newly developed protocol, and idea, is to manage those abnormally developed zygotes from different ART procedures. The investigators developed the plan and requirements needed to select the target extra nucleus or pronuclei to be extruded from fertilized egg in order to maintain developing healthy normal embryo.
This study evaluates the quality of sperm produced after semen processing using Density Gradient (DG) and swimming down (SD).
The investigators evaluate the feedback of using swim down semen processing method during preparation for ICSI and compare the results of pregnancy and embryos quality with the cases used density gradient method for their semen processing.
