There are about 17041 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Canada. 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 global Phase III, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of neoadjuvant treatment with atezolizumab (anti-programmed death-ligand 1 [anti-PD-L1] antibody) and nab-paclitaxel followed by doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (nab-pac-AC), or placebo and nab-pac−AC in participants eligible for surgery with initial clinically assessed triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).
This leucine-enriched protein gummy (as a gummy bar/slab) will be studied to address age-related loss of muscle mass and strength/function in older persons. The product is small volume (approximately 35 g per serve) and low energy (approximately 100 kcal per serve). It is easy to chew and swallow with the consistency of a firm Jello. In addition, it contains an effective dose of leucine in a high-quality protein matrix consisting of milk proteins. Understanding the efficacy of this product on changes in levels of blood amino acids and the molecular signaling required to enhance muscle growth will provide helpful insight for the suggestion of supplemental use.
This study will analyze the effects of Greek yogurt consumption and an 8 week exercise intervention on muscle size, body composition and bone health in untrained, university-aged males.
Psychological factors such as stress, distress, anxiety, depression, and poor coping strategies may be associated with ongoing pain following injuries such as fractures. In order to study this relationship, researchers at McMaster University have developed the Somatic Pre-Occupation and Coping (SPOC) questionnaire, which identifies illness beliefs that may help to predict which patients are at risk for ongoing pain, reduced quality of life, and delays in returning to work and leisure activities after a fracture requiring surgical treatment. Previous research using the SPOC questionnaire suggests the possibility that fracture patients with illness beliefs that put them at risk for developing ongoing pain could be identified early in the treatment process. These patients may benefit from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) which is designed to modify such thoughts with the goal of reducing ongoing pain and improving quality of life. The goal of this study is to determine if CBT is effective in reducing ongoing pain and improving quality of life in fracture patients who show illness beliefs that may place them at risk for developing ongoing pain.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and effects of a cognitive intervention for youth following concussion
Before going off to sleep patients are given oxygen to saturate blood with oxygen to extend time before a decrease in the level of oxygen in the blood occurs. During this period, obese patients have a faster decrease in the level of oxygen in their blood. This study uses a device called "high-flow nasal cannula" (HFNC), which delivers humidified high-flow oxygen through 2 small plastic tubes placed just inside nostrils. In the intensive care unit settings this device has been used extensively and has become a standard practice. Purpose of this study is to determine whether these high-flow nasal cannula increase the time safely when going to sleep during elective surgery.
The objectives of this study are to: a) evaluate and correlate the severity of paravalvular leak (PVL) assessed by both cardiac MRI and transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with Medtronic Evolut-R or Evolut PRO bioprostheses; b) assess the inter and intraobserver variability of both imaging methods; and c) correlate the severity of PVL with post-TAVR changes in LV remodeling and clinical outcomes.
The aims of the study are to determine whether an online drug tapering program can lead to successful drug tapering in hypnotic dependent insomnia and whether such tapering is associated with improved daytime functioning and sleep.
The purpose of the study is to determine the efficacy of video coaching training for neonatology attending providers on tracheal intubation procedural outcomes in neonatal ICUs.
Non-invasive brain stimulation can both study and potentially treat neurological disorders. Transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) is an emerging safe and tolerability form of stimulation and has been used increasingly over the last decade. The purpose of this research is to see if two different types of tDCS can improve motor function in healthy children. tDCS has been shown to safely enhance hand motor function in healthy adults, and those that have suffered stroke and other conditions. Recently the investigators demonstrated that tDCS may enhance hand motor function in healthy children, however, how it does so is unknown. In addition to assessing changes in motor function when tDCS is given during motor skill training, the investigators will perform various tests before and after stimulation to understand the changes that happen in the brain accompanying motor skill learning and brain stimulation. The investigators hypothesize that there will be an accelerated acquisition of motor skill, when training is paired with conventional anodal tDCS, HD-tDCS, or sham tDCS.
