NCT ID: NCT03529838 Recruiting - Hypertension Clinical Trials

Hemodynamic and Salivary Responses of 12 Weeks of Training With Different Anti-hypertensive

Start date: March 1, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Different classes of antihypertensives may have different responses when associated with exercise. Thus, this study aims to compare the responses of the association of 12 weeks of aerobic exercise and weightlifting with different classes of medications in 45 postmenopausal hypertensive women.

NCT ID: NCT03529500 Completed - Malnutrition, Child Clinical Trials

Chronic Malnutrition and Oral Health Status in Children Aged One to Five Years

Start date: February 2, 2017
Phase:
Study type: Observational

Malnutrition is a public health problem that can exert a negative impact on the general and oral health of children. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of chronic malnutrition on the oral health of children aged one to five years. An observational, analytical, cross-sectional study was conducted at the Nutritional Recovery Center and involved 82 children between 12 and 71 months of age. Nutritional status was evaluated using anthropometric indicators and oral health status was measured using the dmft index. Non-stimulated saliva was collected. Flow rate and buffering capacity was then measured with the aid of a pH meter.

NCT ID: NCT03528499 Not yet recruiting - Shoulder Pain Clinical Trials

Scapular Movement Training Versus General Exercises for Individuals With Shoulder Pain

Start date: June 1, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Interventions focused on the scapula have been frequently used to treat shoulder pain. However, most studies do not assess the contribution of scapular movement alteration for the symptoms. Objectives: To compare the effects of two interventions for shoulder pain: Scapular Movement Training and General Exercises.

NCT ID: NCT03528356 Recruiting - Tooth Discoloration Clinical Trials

Impact of Dietary Counseling on Efficacy of Tooth Bleaching

Start date: May 15, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The aim of this study will be to evaluate if subjects submitted to a white diet counseling during home dental bleaching will present better results than subjects that maintained their usual diets. Forty patients will be divided into two groups and randomly allocated to each group: usual diet (control) or white diet, avoiding dye-containing food and beverages. patients will be assessed through a food frequency questionnaire and color measurement using a spectrophotometer at baseline and six months after bleaching.

NCT ID: NCT03526757 Recruiting - Aging Clinical Trials

Effects of Pilates Standing Exercises on Walking Mobility and Postural Balance

Start date: March 1, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Importance: Aging is characterized by numerous molecular, physiological, functional, motor and psychological changes, such as loss of postural balance and reduced muscle mass/strength. Such modifications often lead to reduced physical-functional capacity in the elderly and increased risk of falls. Currently, physical exercise is widely used to improve physical performance and reduce, at least in part, postural instabilities and the risk of falls. In this context, the Pilates method may be a good strategy to improve body balance, muscle strength and, potentially, the perception of quality of life in this population, depending how the exercises are performed. This study seeks to assess whether practicing Pilates exercises in orthostatic position results in differential effects on walking mobility and postural balance in healthy elderly women when compared to the standard sequence in the Pilates method, which involves less time performing exercise in the orthostatic position. The study hypothesis is that a higher relative volume of Pilates exercises performed in the orthostatic position can promote greater benefits in terms of walking mobility and postural balance compared to the standard Pilates protocol in the elderly.

NCT ID: NCT03526393 Completed - Training Clinical Trials

Construction of the Training Mode Adjustable Equipment Sitting Volleyball

Start date: August 16, 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The individual adapted sport modalities concentrate most of the technological development for equipment and auxiliary devices, the collective modalities need implements that aid in the development of training and the game.

NCT ID: NCT03526133 Recruiting - Sleep Apnea Clinical Trials

Validation of Sleep Apnea Diagnosis Device

Start date: July 7, 2017
Phase:
Study type: Observational

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is common and largely underdiagnosed disease. The standard method for the diagnosis of OSA is a complete night polysomnography (PSG). Simple methods for OSA diagnosis are necessary. The overnight oximetry with the oxygen desaturation index (ODI) has been largely investigated as a diagnostic test for OSA but its accuracy remains undefined. The aim of our study is to evaluate if an wireless polygraph (Oxistar) is accurate to diagnosis OSA in patients referred to a Sleep Lab.

NCT ID: NCT03525340 Not yet recruiting - HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials

Improving Health Outcomes for Women Living With HIV

Start date: May 7, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study will develop and conduct a trans-specific peer navigation intervention in Brazil, which integrates the I-Care approach developed in South Africa with the Model of Gender Affirmation (GA), developed by the investigators to specifically address HIV prevention and care among trans women.

NCT ID: NCT03524768 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Chagas Cardiomyopathy

Microvascular Endothelial Function in a Cohort of Patients With the Cardiac Form of Chronic Chagas Disease.

Start date: June 2018
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The present study aims to evaluate the microvascular endothelial function of a single centre cohort of patients with the cardiac form of Chagas disease, and to search for associations with clinical and laboratory variables.

NCT ID: NCT03523598 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Medicaments Substances in Therapeutic Use

Potassium Nitrate and Post-bleaching Sensitivity

Start date: May 26, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study will determine the effectiveness of the use of desensitivity gels prior in office bleaching on risk and intensity of tooth sensitivity caused by in-office bleaching using 35% hydrogen peroxide and using different types of potassium nitrate. Materials and Methods: Seventy five patients will be selected for this triple-blind, randomized, cross-over, placebo-controlled clinical trial. 10 minutes prior to bleaching procedure, patients will receive the the potassium nitrate 2% or placebo gel application on vestibular surface and Toothpaste 15 days before start the bleaching procedure (group 1: placebo gel + Colgate toothpaste; Group 2: Placebo gel + Nitrate toothpaste Sensodyne and Group 3: Potassium Nitrate + Colgate toothpaste). The whitening treatment with 35% hydrogen peroxide will be carried out in two sessions with a 7-day interval. Tooth sensitivity will be assessed before, during and 24 hours after the procedure using analog visual and verbal scales. Color alteration will be assessed by a Vita Guide scale at the end of the last session. Relative risk to sensitivity will be calculated and adjusted by session; while comparison of overall risk will performed by McNemar's test. Data on the sensitivity level and color shade will be subjected to the Friedman, Wilcoxon (α = 0.05). If necessary, multiple comparation will be done using Tukey's test.
