There are about 2568 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 purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of an intramuscular regimen of two doses (1*10^11 viral particles [vp]) of an investigational respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) vaccine candidate (adenovirus serotype 26 respiratory syncytial virus pre-fusion conformation stabilized F protein [pre-F] [Ad26.RSV.preF]) in adults aged 18 to 50 years and RSV-seropositive toddlers aged 12 to 24 months.
This Phase 3 study is intended to assess the efficacy of the Quadrivalent VLP Influenza Vaccine during the 2017-2018 influenza season in healthy adults 18 to 64 years of age. One dose of Quadrivalent Virus-Like Particles (VLP) Influenza Vaccine (30 μg/strain) or of placebo will be administered to approximately 10,000 subjects.
Fibromyalgia (FM) is a world widely common syndrome, characterized by widespread pain, often accompanied by general fatigue, soreness, and abnormal sensations (like "pins and needles"). The reasons and the mechanisms (pathogenesis) of FM are still poorly understood. Efficacious therapies cannot be developed without understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms of the disease or syndrome. FM patients suffer from pain and sense of weakness and fatigue in the muscles, and often report difficulty in relaxing their muscles. So far, the studies on muscle activation in fibromyalgia (mostly using surface electromyography) have shown some unusual functioning, a kind of overuse, but the results have been somewhat contradictory. FM symptoms share some features with small fibre neuropathy, which is a disease or abnormality of small nerve fibres with a diverse aetiology. Recently, several research groups have shown (studying both the electrical function of superficial nerves and nerve endings of skin samples) that up to 50% of the FM patients with severe symptoms have small fibre neuropathy: their small nerves do not function properly and small nerve fibre density in their skin is reduced. However, as this phenomenon is common but not a rule, it might be rather a consequence of some underlying mechanisms of the syndrome, creating even more symptoms. The aim is to investigate whether there would exist metabolic changes in FM patients that would create pain and lead to functional changes and damage in small nerve fibres. The investigators also aim to explore the muscle function particularly in distressed situations and at rest. The hypothesis is that a towards-overuse-altered function would create unfavourable metabolic changes. Third, the aim is to investigate some psychological factors (such as tendency to get anxious or distressed) to find out, if there is any association between them and muscle function. The FM patients as well as healthy control subjects will be recruited at Helsinki University Hospital Pain Clinic and from primary care at Vantaa Health Care Centre. The voluntary test subjects will attend 1. A muscle function examination of 30 minutes with electromyography using surface electrodes, including mentally distressing tasks and relaxing periods. At the same session, the subject will reply to some questionnaires regarding their symptoms and measuring some psychological factors. Actual pain level will be assessed. 2. A glucose tolerance test, with other blood samples 3. A bicycle ergometer exercise test of 20 - 30 minutes, with both physiological and chemical (blood samples) recordings. Actual pain level will be assessed as well. At this stage, 40 patients and 20 healthy control subjects will be recruited.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and tolerability of golimumab in children, adolescents, and young adults with pre-symptomatic stage 2 type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D).
This study evaluates the safety and tolerability of CDNF in patients with Parkinson's disease, when dosed directly into the brain using an implanted investigational drug delivery system (DDS). Safety and accuracy of the DDS is also being evaluated. One-third of the patients will receive monthly infusions with placebo and two-third of the patients will receive monthly infusions with either mid- or high-doses of CDNF for a period of 6 months.
This study is testing whether stratification of the patients according to biological risk factors for different treatment groups will improve the outcome of patients with clinically high diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL).
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of omalizumab compared with placebo in adult patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) who have had an inadequate response to standard-of-care treatments.
The study evaluates the effectiveness of the game-intervention in promotion of physical activity self-efficacy and physical activity behavior among early adolescents (10-13 year olds). Half of the study participants will receive the game-intervention and half of the study participants will receive a commercially available sport and fitness application for running, cycling and every-day training.
The study evaluates the effectiveness of the WellWe-intervention in promotion of parental self-efficacy for healthy behaviors and mindfulness in parenting from the perspective of families. Aim is also to evaluate the effectiveness of the WellWe-intervention in facilitation of family-centered approach of the health visit in Child health clinic perceived by the families and Public health nurses (PHN). Half of the participants will receive WellWe-intervention and half of the participants will receive usual care.
Blood pressure variation and the risk of essential hypertension have an important genetic component. In most cases susceptibility to essential hypertension is likely determined by the action of more than one gene. The identification of genes causing susceptibility to hypertension is important, since it would give new tools for the diagnosis and enable better etiological classification and specific treatment of the disease. The innovation of this study is to use the response to antihypertensive therapy as an intermediate phenotype. In the study, each subject uses one of four antihypertensive drugs, each as a monotherapy in a rotational fashion, for 28 days in a randomized order. The antihypertensive drugs to be tested include a thiazide diuretic, a beta-adrenergic antagonist, an angiotensin-II receptor antagonist and a calcium channel blocker. The drugs that are selected for the study are "typical" representatives of their groups and long-acting, and the dosages are sufficient but well tolerable.
