NCT ID: NCT03502525 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Substance Abuse, Intravenous

Break the Cycle: Prevention for Reducing Initiation Into Injection Drug Use

Start date: August 31, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Break the Cycle is a two-session, one-on-one, in-person intervention study designed to reduce the role persons who inject drugs (PWID) play initiating non-PWID into injection drug use. Study implementation is at two sites: New York City and Tallinn, Estonia. At baseline, quantitative data are collected via a structured computer-assisted personal interview, after which the intervention is conducted. At the 6-month follow-up, a modified version of the interview is repeated. The study uses a pre- versus post- design to compare the proportion of participants who helped with first injections, and who promoted injecting among non-PWID, in the 6 months prior to baseline with the proportions at the 6-month follow-up. Break the Cycle intervention follows a motivational interviewing approach to enhance current injectors' motivation and skills to avoid helping with and promoting first injections among non-PWID. The intervention's core is a discussion between an interventionist and each participant on the following eight topics: the participant's first time injecting drugs; the participant's exposures to situations where helping with others' first injections is an option, and the extent to which they have helped; PWIDs' behaviors that might encourage non-PWID to inject for the first time; the range of risks associated with injection drug use; role-playing scenarios in which the participant develops behaviors and scripts for avoiding or refusing requests to initiate others into injection drug use; role- playing talking with other PWID about not encouraging non-PWID to start injecting; imparting safer injection practices when helping with a first injection seems like the best option; and receiving training in and using Narcan to reverse overdoses.

NCT ID: NCT03498521 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Cancer of Unknown Primary Site

A Phase II Randomized Study Comparing the Efficacy and Safety of Targeted Therapy or Cancer Immunotherapy Versus Platinum-Based Chemotherapy in Patients With Cancer of Unknown Primary Site

Start date: May 10, 2018
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This study will compare the efficacy and safety of molecularly-guided therapy versus standard platinum-containing chemotherapy in participants with cancer of unknown primary site (CUP; non-specific subset) who have achieved disease control after 3 cycles of first-line platinum doublet induction chemotherapy.

NCT ID: NCT03467581 Recruiting - Metabolic Surgery Clinical Trials

Five-year Outcome of Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve

Start date: October 8, 2008
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The aim of this study is to evaluate the long-term (5-year follow-up) results of laparoscopic gastric sleeve (LGS) in terms of weight loss and obesity related comorbidities, as well as the risk factors associated with postoperative nutritional deficiencies.

NCT ID: NCT03439657 Recruiting - Herpes Zoster Clinical Trials

Immunogenicity and Safety Study of GSK Biologicals' Herpes Zoster Vaccine GSK1437173A When Co-administered With Prevenar13 in Adults Aged 50 Years and Older

Start date: April 18, 2018
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to assess immunogenicity and safety of GSK Biologicals' HZ vaccine when its first dose is co-administered with a pneumococcal polysaccharide conjugate vaccine (Prevenar13) in adults aged ≥50 YOA, as compared to the control group where the two HZ/su doses are administered subsequent to Prevenar13.

NCT ID: NCT03431844 Recruiting - Myocardial Ischemia Clinical Trials

Humanin Isoforms in Cardiac Muscle and Blood Plasma and Major Complications After Cardiac Operation

Start date: January 1, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Objective of the study is to clarify humanin-like peptide concentration in myocard tissue and in blood and to study if its concentration level is related to early complication occurrence and frequency after cardiac operation. Hypothesis of the study is that previously described elements are related to each other.

NCT ID: NCT03409679 Recruiting - Pneumonia Clinical Trials

Pivotal Study in VAP Suspected or Confirmed to be Due to Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

Start date: March 23, 2018
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This is a phase 3, multicenter, open-label, randomized active-controlled, parallel group to investigate the efficacy, safety and tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of intravenous murepavadin combined with of one anti-pseudononas antibiotic with that of two anti-pseudomonas antibiotics in the treatment of ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia (VABP) in adult subjects.

NCT ID: NCT03400371 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

Biology of Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

Start date: July 13, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The investigators are collecting genetic information through blood samples as well as clinical and EEG data from over 1000 people with Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME) across the UK, Europe and North America. This study will draw on both existing and new samples from JME patients. These will be compared to anonymised data from samples for 2000 controls. The goal of this study is to find the genetic cause of JME. Finding the cause will help create better treatments for JME, as well as improve patient outcomes by allowing us to detect it earlier.

NCT ID: NCT03381196 Recruiting - Influenza A Clinical Trials

A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Pimodivir in Combination With the Standard-of-Care Treatment in Adolescent, Adult, and Elderly Non-Hospitalized Participants With Influenza A Infection Who Are at Risk of Developing Complications

Start date: January 18, 2018
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical and virologic benefit of pimodivir in combination with Standard-of-Care (SOC) treatment compared to placebo in combination with SOC treatment.

NCT ID: NCT03322540 Recruiting - Lung Cancer Clinical Trials
