There are about 2932 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Finland. 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 the SAMISEN study is to assess the performance and safety of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures with the newly designed Olympus Motorized Spiral Enteroscope (PowerSpiral).
The study will evaluate the feasibility of Nonin SenSmart H500 device to measuring brain oxygenation during prehospital anesthesia of adult patient. The study also estimates the incidence of cerebral hypoxic events of anesthetized patients during prehospital care. The study does not affect the treatment of the patient. The study is pilot study and will be followed with a main study to assess the association between cerebral oxygenation during prehospital care and outcome of the patient.
The PK of tiotropium is compared after orally administered tiotropium capsule with and without concomitant oral activated charcoal administration. The efficiency of the charcoal block method to be used to prevent GI absorption in PK studies of Tiotropium Easyhaler will be evaluated.
PropoStatus is a prospective observational study investigating the EEG changes seen in neurologically healthy patients during induction of general anesthesia with propofol.
The global challenges caused by dementia affect society from both the public health and economic perspective, and are exacerbated by the rapid growth of the population in the oldest age groups. Reducing the risk of developing dementia and improving the overall health status, psychosocial wellbeing, and the quality of life of the oldest old would bear individual and public health benefits, as well as social and economic advantages. Data from long-term longitudinal cohort studies can provide invaluable information about the factors that play a key role in healthy ageing and in the development of dementia. The aim of CAIDE 85+ is to better understand the factors that, from mid- to late-life, determine the development of cognitive disorders such as dementia, as well as the overall health status, psychosocial wellbeing and quality of life in the oldest old segment of the population. CAIDE85+ is the third follow-up of the main Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Aging and Dementia (CAIDE) study conducted in the Kuopio and Joensuu areas in Eastern Finland. During midlife, participants were initially part of two population-based health surveys (North Karelia project and FINMONICA study) carried out between 1972 and 1987. In 1998, a random sample of 2000 individuals (aged 64-79) from these cohorts were invited to participate in a first re-examination as part of the CAIDE study. A second re-examination of this population was carried out between 2005 and 2008. Individuals who are still alive and living in the Kuopio and Joensuu areas will now be invited for a third re-examination. Participants' cognitive functioning and physical fitness will be assessed, and they will be asked questions about their health status, psychosocial wellbeing, and lifestyle. Blood samples will be also collected to investigate biomarkers that may be relevant for dementia-related diseases.
Capability of oxytocin in improving the efficacy of MRI-HIFU is studied. Patients undergoing MRI-HIFU treatment are given oxytocin during treatment and the efficacy of the treatment will be analysed by patient reported symptom questionnaires and imaging data.
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blinded, controlled Phase 3 trial of cabozantinib in combination with nivolumab and ipilimumab versus nivolumab and ipilimumab in combination with matched placebo. Approximately 676 eligible subjects with intermediate- or poor-risk advanced or metastatic RCC by IMDC criteria will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio (~338 per treatment arm) at approximately 150 sites.
INNODIA is a global consortium linking 26 academic institutions, 4 industrial partners, a small to medium enterprise (SME), and 2 patient organisations, bringing their knowledge and experience together with one common goal: "To fight type 1 diabetes". (www.innodia.eu). The project, approved in November 2015 and launched in January 2016, runs under the framework of the Innovative Medicines Initiative - Joint Undertaking (https://www.imi.europa.eu/projects-results/project-factsheets/innodia) with a dedicated governance structure ensuring close interaction, communication and adherence to the objectives and deliverables of the consortium. The overall aim of INNODIA is to advance in a decisive way how to predict, stage, evaluate and prevent the onset and progression of type 1 diabetes (T1D). For this, INNODIA has established a comprehensive and interdisciplinary network of clinical and basic scientists, who are leading experts in the field of T1D research in Europe, with complementary expertise from the areas of immunology, Beta-cell biology, biomarker research and T1D therapy, joining forces in a coordinated fashion with industry partners and two foundations, as well as with all major stakeholders in the process, including regulatory bodies and patients with T1D and their families. One of the objectives of INNODIA is to develop a new European clinical research network with standardized protocol based on repeated measures of C-peptide (including home measurements) and comprehensive collection of appropriate biological samples for 'omics', immune, viral and microbiome studies in new onset T1D patients and high-risk auto-antibody positive subjects. A protocol for the harmonization of sample collections in newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic patients and first degree relatives of patients with type 1 diabetes was developed following extensive preliminary work involving partners from across all specialities. Core laboratories with experience in their respective field were set up for analysis of auto-antibodies, fresh immune cells, handling of frozen immune cells, C-peptide measures. A series of standard operating procedures for sample collections and analysis were agreed. Sample tracking between clinical centres and central laboratories was included into a purposely designed electronic case report form (eCRF) into which all clinical and laboratory data collected are captured.
The main objective of the trial is to evaluate the effect of point-of-care testing of respiratory pathogens at a pediatric emergency room on the antibiotic consumption and hospital admissions in acutely ill children.
Electronic patient reported outcome (ePRO) tools have improved survival and quality of life (QoL) of cancer patients receiving chemotherapy, and in the follow-up of lung cancer patients. Current study investigates electronic patient reported outcome tool in the follow-up of cancer patients receiving immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy. Current study aims to evaluate 1) patient reported symptoms and their severity, 2) Number of triggered alerts by the tool and their correlation to treatment side-effects, cancer progression, other medical events or survival, 3) Correlation between different symptoms and the correlation of symptoms to treatment side-effects, cancer progression, other medical events or survival,4) QoL of patients and correlation of changes in QoL to treatment side-effects, cancer progression, other medical events or survival, 5) Patient compliance, 6) Correlation of baseline laboratory values to treatment side-effects, cancer progression, other medical events or survival.
