There are about 93 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Algeria. 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.
Blood pressure reduction and control are associated with reduced risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease. There is evidence that ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) results more accurately reflect the risk of cardiovascular events than do office measurements of blood pressure. New international guidelines recognize the importance of ABPM which has an important and growing role in the diagnosis and in guiding antihypertensive therapy. In 2011 in the United Kingdom, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended that ABPM be performed on all patients with suspected hypertension to confirm the diagnosis and reduce unnecessary treatment in people who do not have true hypertension. The aim of this observational study is to describe the utility of ABPM generally and specifically in the management of hypertension by Cardiologists in the Algerian context.
Many data suggest that patients with low rectal adenocarcinoma who achieved ypT0N0 status have improved survival and disease-free survival (DFS) compared to all other stages however only few data are available regarding the specific prognosis factors of this subgroup. This retrospective multicentric study aimed to predict the prognosis of patients with complete pathological response after neoadjuvant treatment.
This study will look at the change in the participant's body weight from the start to the end of the study. This is to compare the effect on body weight in people taking semaglutide (a new medicine) and people taking "dummy" medicine. In addition to taking the study medicine, the participant will have talks with study staff about healthy food choices, how to be more physically active and what else the participant can do to lose weight. Overweight and obesity is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Therefore, weight loss has shown to have a beneficial impact on the blood sugar levels. The participant will either get semaglutide or "dummy" medicine - which treatment the participant get is decided by chance. The participant will need to take 2 injections at the same time once a week. The study medicine is injected with a thin needle in a skin fold in the stomach, thigh or upper arm. The study will last for about 1.5 years
This study is a prospective, multicenter, open-label, single-arm effectiveness and safety study in participants with progressive multiple sclerosis (PMS).
The aim of this observational study is to evaluate the quality of life in patients with congenital afibrinogenemia using the Haemo-QoL SF for kids and the Haem-A-QoL for adult patients.
This is a multicenter, international, double-blind randomized Phase III study to evaluate the pathological complete response (pCR) according to Chevalier classification between Fulvestrant® and the combination of Fulvestrant® plus Palbociclib as neoadjuvant therapy of hormone-sensitive patients with operable luminal breast cancer. Eligible patients will be assessed upfront using the OncotypeDX® molecular test (Recurrence Score <31).
The objective of the present study is to estimate the overall survival of patients with cervical cancer after the administration of monoclonal antibody (mAb) Nimotuzumab (hR3) in combination with chemotherapy of first intention. Patients will be randomized in two parallel treatment groups. The first group will receive a dose of 200 mg of monoclonal antibody anti-hR3 (weekly during 18 weeks), combined with a chemotherapy (6 cycles, every 21 days of Cisplatin 70mg/m2, Vinorelbine 60 mg/m2 (Per Os) at D1 and D8 and then 80mg / m2. The second group will receive a placebo in combination with the same chemotherapy regimen as the first group. At the end of the first intention chemotherapy treatment, a dose of maintenance of Nimotuzumab will be administered at the dose of 200mg every 14 days until progression. A second chemotherapy in the second intention is proposed, this one is based on Carboplatin ( CBP) in an AUC (area under curve) of 6, and Paclitaxel (Txl) in 175 mg / m2 / BSA (body surface area ) in drip of 3 hours, every 3 weeks, concomitant with the administration of hR3, every 14 days, until a limit of toxicity or an ECOG (Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group) status superior to 3, appears.
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of atezolizumab plus chemotherapy compared with placebo plus chemotherapy in patients with inoperable recurrent triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).
A multinational, prospective and observational study that will assess the management of ACS in real-life practices in Middle East North Africa area.
This study evaluates the effect of clean wound management and dressing on complex zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by L. major in the MENA region (Algeria). The patients will participate in the wound dressing themselves. The objective is to determine the amount of patients that can avoid systemic chemotherapy with pentavalent antimony which is compulsory for patients with complex CL lesions. In Algeria, this requires expensive hospital care because of the eventual toxic side effects of Sb(V).
