There are about 7105 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.
The objective of this study is to investigate the potential GLP-1-mediated contribution to the well-established glucose-lowering effect of sevelamer-induced bile acid sequestration . Exendin9-39 has been demonstrated to act as a potent and specific GLP-1 receptor antagonist with no partial agonistic potential and is considered a useful tool in the assessment of GLP-1 physiology. The aim is to evaluate any contribution of sevelamer-induced GLP-1 secretion to the reduced plasma glucose concentrations observed after treatment with sevelamer. A randomised placebo-controlled cross-over study involving two 17-day treatment periods with sevelamer and placebo, respectively, in metformin-treated patients with type 2 diabetes, will be conducted. The impact of bile acid sequestration on GLP-1 secretion and effect will be examined during two randomised experimental days after 15 and 17 days of treatment with sevelamer (1,600 mg three times a day) and placebo, respectively. During each of these two experimental days, a meal test with concomitant exendin9-39 infusion or placebo will be performed (for evaluation of any GLP-1-mediated effects). Postprandial plasma glucose excursion is the primary endpoint, and secondary endpoints include postprandial plasma/serum excursions of insulin, C-peptide, GLP-1, glucagon, glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP), glucagon-like peptide-2 (GLP-2), peptide YY (PYY), oxyntomodulin, ghrelin, fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-19, FGF-21, C4 (an intermediate in the de novo synthesis of bile acids), cholecystokinin (CCK), bile acids and plasma lipids. Furthermore, gastric emptying, gallbladder emptying, liver fat content, appetite and ad libitum food intake will be examined.
The purpose of this study is to examine the hemodynamics of stroke patients with near-infrared spectroscopy before, during and after endovascular treatment and their relations to disabilities and mortality 3 months after treatment.
This is a Phase III randomised, double-blind, multi-centre study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of durvalumab in combination with standard of care platinum based chemotherapy and bevacizumab followed by maintenance durvalumab and bevacizumab or durvalumab, bevacizumab and olaparib in patients with newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer.
In the present project the investigators will evaluate whether glucagonotropic properties of the gut-derived incretin hormone glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) may be utilized as a safeguard against hypoglycemia in the daily life of participants with type 1 Diabetes
The main goal of this study is to evaluate the effect of the proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitor evolocumab on cardiac allograft vasculopathy in de novo heart transplant recipients. Secondary objectives are to assess the impact of treatment on: i) cholesterol levels, ii) renal function, iii) inflammation, iv) quality of life, v) cardiac function as assessed by biomarkers and echocardiography, vi) the number of rejections, and (vii) safety and tolerability. As an exploratory outcome, the investigators will asses the effect of treatment on clinical events (death, myocardial infarction, cerebral stroke, cancer, end stage renal disease).
In recent decades, local healthcare services have undergone dramatic changes. The World Health Organization (WHO) refers to a shift from specialized hospital to local healthcare services to meet the growing expectations for better performance and outcomes in health care and better value for money. It is unique that Central Denmark Region has assigned phase II cardiac rehabilitation (CR) as a local healthcare task. However, there is sparse knowledge about how this reform may influence processes of care and outcomes in CR. This association is important to investigate when dramatic organisational changes in settings of evidence based interventions is implemented, as well as in relation to helping people with heart disease return to an active and satisfying everyday life.
The main purpose of the study is to assess whether repeated sessions of repetitive trancranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) applied on left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex main boost the pain thresholds.
This project is aimed to investigate the feasibility of employing communication and sensor technologies for the patient after a knee operation. In the study, it is hypothesized that the effectiveness of postoperative rehabilitation programs might be improved by establishing electronic communication between healthcare professionals and the patients. It is also believed that users satisfaction and patients quality of life will be improved. The telerehabilitation program promises a synchronized communication as well as an individualized training program (by health professionals) based on the patient's electronic reports.
In breast cancer patients treated by mastectomy and adjuvant post-mastectomy radiation therapy (PMRT) reconstruction is often delayed until 6 - 12 month after completion of chemotherapy and PMRT, due to high risk of complication. In this trial the safety of the delayed-immediate reconstruction method is tested, where a skin sparing mastectomy and reconstruction with silicone implant is performed at primary surgery to save the native skin for the final delayed reconstruction.
Exercise training combined with other lifestyle changes are essential elements in conservative management of patients with Intermittent Claudication (IC). IC is essentially caused by atherosclerosis, which reduces blood flow to the legs and leads to cramping leg pain when walking. Patients suffering from IC may have difficulty in exercising and changing lifestyle without systematic intervention despite the risk of morbidity, mortality and hospitalization. Today, rehabilitation programs, including supervised exercise, exist for patients suffering ischemic heart disease but not for patients with IC, despite evidence that exercise therapy is highly beneficial for patients suffering IC. The overall aim of the present study is to examine the effect of conservative management of patients with IC provided as a three month, cross-sectoral exercise and lifestyle intervention program based on the already established cardiac rehabilitation program. Outcome will be assessed on walking distance and secondly on lifestyle changes and patient reported outcomes. Implications: The project will provide evidence for the effect of cross-sectoral collaborative conservative management of patients with IC, using the existing rehabilitation program already offered to patients suffering ischemic heart disease. Moreover, it will elicit knowledge on patient perceptions of conservative management of IC provided as a proactive cross-sectoral intervention and ways to support patients with IC in adhering to conservative management.
