There are about 769 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Estonia. 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.
To investigate the safety and efficacy of abatacept with steroid treatment in comparison to steroid treatment alone in up to a 28 week taper of steroid treatment to sustain remission of Giant Cell Arteritis in adults.
Stroke is a leading causes of death and disability. At least 20% of strokes occur during sleep, so- called 'wake up stroke'. Thrombolysis with the clot-busting drug alteplase is effective for acute ischaemic stroke, provided that it is given within 4.5 hours of symptom onset. Patients with wake-up stroke are currently ineligible for clot-busting therapy. Previous studies indicate that many wake-up strokes occur just before awakening. In this study, patients with wake-up stroke will be randomized to thrombolysis with tenecteplase and best standard treatment or to best standard treatment without thrombolysis. Tenecteplase has several potential advantages over alteplase, including very rapid action and that it can be given as a single injection. Prior to thrombolysis, a brain scan must be done to exclude bleeding or significant brain damage as a result from the stroke. We will use a CT scan to inform this decision. CT is used as a routine examination in all stroke patients. Other studies testing clot-busting treatment in wake-up stroke are using alteplase and more complex brain scans, which are not routinely available in the emergency situation in all hospitals.
The purpose is to compare median two-year clinical outcome after OCT guided vs. standard guided revascularization of patients requiring complex bifurcation stent implantation
Neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a major cause of death or long-term disability in infants born at term in the western world, affecting about 1-4 per 1.000 life births and consequently about 5-20.000 infants per year in Europe. Hypothermic treatment became the only established therapy to improve outcome after perinatal hypoxic-ischemic insults. Despite hypothermia and neonatal intensive care, 45-50% of affected children die or suffer from long-term neurodevelopmental impairment. Additional neuroprotective interventions, beside hypothermia, are warranted to further improve their outcome. Allopurinol is a xanthine oxidase inhibitor and reduces the production of oxygen radicals and brain damage in experimental, animal, and early human studies of ischemia and reperfusion. This project aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of allopurinol administered immediately after birth to near-term infants with HIE in addition to hypothermic treatment.
The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of guselkumab treatment in participants with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) by assessing the reduction in signs and symptoms of PsA.
A prospective, single-center, open-label, randomized controlled trial to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the OptiVein IV Catheter in the pediatric population. The study hypothesis is that OptiVein IV Catheter use will be superior to the control in successful venous access after first attempt.
A study to assess effectiveness and safety of a drug FP-1201-lyo (Recombinant Human Interferon Beta-1a) in the Prevention of Multi-Organ Failure on patients after Open Surgery for a Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
This is a multicenter, Phase 2, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in subjects with active Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). A total of approximately 100 subjects will be randomized to one of 2 treatment arms in a 1:1 ratio: oral filgotinib tablets q.d. or matching placebo q.d. Treatment duration will be 12 weeks. Each subject will stay in the study for a maximum of 20 weeks (from Screening visit to Follow-up visit).
The purpose of this study is to determine whether SYL1001 ophthalmic solution is safe and effective in the treatment of signs and symptoms of Dry Eye Disease.
Evaluation of the long-term safety and tolerability of vortioxetine in child and adolescent patients with a Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition (DSM-5™) diagnosis of MDD
