There are about 6633 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Denmark. 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 phase 1B, multi-center, dose-finding study of RO7082859 administered in combination with obinutuzumab (Gazyva; [G]), rituximab (R) and standard doses of CHOP (G/R-CHOP or R-CHOP) in participants with Grades 1-3a r/r FL and untreated diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Evaluating the safety, preliminary activity, pharmacokinetic (PK), and pharmacodynamic effects of this combination will be the main objectives of this study. The study is divided in two parts: - Part I: Dose finding in participants with r/r FL - Part II: Dose expansion in which the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) (or optimal biologic dose [OBD]) determined in Part I will be further assessed in participants with r/r FL and those with untreated DLBCL (>60 years old with an age-adjusted International Prognostic Index [IPI]) of 2-3), and the impact of using G in place of R in Cycle 1 on safety and tolerability will be assessed via a randomized, unblinded, two-arm design in participants with untreated DLBCL.
Treatment with iron isomaltoside and ferric carboxymaltose in subjects with iron deficiency anaemia due to inflammatory bowel disease and comparison of the incidence of hypophosphatemia
The aim of the study is to determine the efficacy of selinexor in adults with TETs determined by overall response rate (RECIST 1.1) in two parallel cohorts of patients with advanced thymomas or thymic carcinomas. The study is an international, multicenter, open label phase II trial using Simons two stage design. The study population is adults with histologically confirmed, advanced, inoperable TETs who are progressing after treatment with least one platinum containing chemotherapy regimen. This study is comprised of 2 similar phase II tirals, one running in EU (25 patients) and one running in US (25 patients). There are two study arms: Arm A: Thymoma - Stage 1: 15 patients - Stage 2: 10 patients Arm B: Thymic carcinoma - Stage 1: 15 patients - Stage 2: 10 patients
A pilot study to investigate the safety and feasibility of stem cells treatment of complex anal fistula in patients with Crohn`s disease.
The study is a 44 weeks, prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded, parallel group two-center trial. Forty patients are recruited among the outpatients of the COPD clinic, Hospital of South West Jutland and Lillebælt Hospital according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The patients are randomized to receive liraglutide 3 mg per day (initial dose 0.6 mg, increasing by 0.6 mg weekly until 3 mg is reached) or placebo. At baseline, after four weeks (assessment of the acute effect of liraglutide), 20 weeks, and 40 weeks (assessment of the combined effect of liraglutide and weight loss) and at week 44 (assessment of the weight-loss after discontinuation of liraglutide) the patients are assessed by physical examination, carbon monoxide (CO) diffusion test, pulmonary function test, biomarkers of inflammation (CRP, IL-6, MCP-1), FDG/PET-CT scan of the lungs, 6-minute walking test, respiratory polygraphy and validated questionnaires including basic dyspnea index, transition dyspnea index, COPD Assessment Test (CAT)-score, SF-36 and Epworth Sleepiness Score.
The purpose of this study is to assess progression‑free survival (PFS) from treatment with ibrutinib plus venetoclax (I+VEN) compared with obinutuzumab plus chlorambucil (G-Clb) as assessed by an Independent Review Committee (IRC).
The main objective of this study is to examine the efficacy of a new psychological intervention, called Back2School, in helping youths with problematic school absenteeism to return to school. Furthermore, the study will examine how well this program fares against the treatment or interventions that are usually given to youths with school absenteeism (treatment as usual or TAU). Based on previous studies we hypothesize that the Back2School intervention will be better at improving levels of school attendance as compared with treatment as usual (TAU).
Nine healthy, moderately fit male volunteers participated in the study. The subjects gave written informed consent after having been informed of any possible risk and discomfort associated with the study. The study was approved by the regional ethics committee in Denmark (Journal number: H-4-2013-071) and performed in accordance with the Declarations of Helsinki II. All subjects underwent 3 clinical investigations (day 1, day 2 and day 5) during a 5 day glycogen supercompensation regime. The subjects were asked to refrain from physical activity and to eat a controlled diet containing 60% carbohydrates (CHO) for 4 days prior to the initial experiments. Upon arrival at the laboratory on day 1, the subjects performed one-legged knee extensor exercise for 1 hour at 80% of PWL interspersed by 5 min bouts at 90% of PWL. This was followed by interval exercise until exhaustion containing 4 min bouts starting at 100% PWL followed by 1 min at 50% of PWL. Upon cessation of exercise the subjects showered and rested in the supine position for 4 hours. Then a 120 min hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp was initiated by a bolus insulin injection (9.0 mU/kg, Actrapid, Novo Nordisk, Denmark) followed by continuous insulin infusion (1.42 mU/kg/min insulin) reaching a level of plasma insulin around 100 µU/mL (n=9). At least 2 hours before the insulin clamp, catheters were placed in both femoral, one antecubital and one dorsal hand vein. A heat pad was placed around the lower part of the arm and hand in order to "arterialize" blood drawn from the hand vein. Substrate uptake/release across the legs was calculated by multiplying the arterial-venous (AV) difference in blood substrate concentration by femoral arterial blood flow (measured by ultrasound, Philips DICOM). Blood glucose levels were maintained at the euglycemic predefined target by continuously adjusting the glucose infusion rate (GIR) (20% glucose solution; Fresenius Kabi, Sweden). Concurrent measures of substrate AV differences and blood flow were performed every 20 min. Muscle biopsies from m. vastus lateralis were obtained under local anaesthesia (3-5 ml of Xylocaine, 20 mg/ml.) in the basal- and insulin-stimulated state (120 min) by use of needle biopsy technique. Muscle specimen were frozen within 20 sec in liquid nitrogen and stored at -80°C for further analysis. A new incision was made for every biopsy and spaced 4-5 cm apart. This insulin clamp procedure in combination with basal and insulin stimulated muscle biopsies was repeated in the rested state (without prior exercise) on day 2 and day 5. The subjects arrived in the morning in the overnight fasted state at day 1, day 2 and day 5. During the 5 day supercompensation regime the subjects were provided a predefined isocaloric diet containing 80% carbohydrates, 10% fat and 10% proteins. All food items were handle out to the subjects and compliance of the diet regime was ensured by survey.
Patients diagnosed with high-grade gliomas (HGG) experience a complex symptom burden including high-levels concerns. As a consequence to this life-threatening disease, the rely on close contact with a specialized neuro-oncological team as well as support and practical assistance from their families. However, multidimensional burden of caregivers has been reported. CARES seeks to facilitate and activate the existing resources within the patient and the network using a new model of systematic family care approach. Specialized neuro-oncological nurses are responsible for an expanded area providing an opportunity for the nursing profession to establish a new model of nursing care. This may not only benefit the patients and their families but also contribute to strengthen the nurses' professional identity and support further development of neuro-oncological specialist team.
Despite systems for early detection of critical illness, 12% of patients in the emergency department develop clinical deterioration with an increased risk of death as a result. There is a need for a intervention to support the identification and clinical management of patients at risk of clinical deterioration earlier hospitalization. The Cincinnati Children's Hospital has introduced a model that systematically complements systems for early detection of critical illness with the assessment of patient and relatives concern, clinical intuition and concern of the staff. In addition, the model includes formalized organizational processes aimed at systematic review of risk patients and early treatment efforts. Studies from United States indicate that the model can lead to reduction of serious incidental events and increase the staff awareness of the situation. The Cincinnati model is designed for children and has not yet been studied in a controlled study. Purpose To develop and investigate the impact of a Danish patient safety model. Method A literature review is conducted to identify risk factors that should be included in a model aimed at detecting and managing clinical deterioration. A patient safety model is developed on the basis of the literature review and the Cincinnati model and is tested in a pilot study. In a controlled intervention study, the effect is investigated against severe clinical deterioration. The intervention is carried out at the emergency departments at Horsens Regional Hospital and Viborg Regional Hospital with the regional hospitals in Randers and Herning as control departments.
