There are about 275 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Georgia. 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.
This study will evaluate two novel approaches to improve access to Hepatitis C virus (HCV) confirmatory viremia testing. Both approaches are "Harm reduction site-based (HRS)" because HCV viremia testing will be initiated and test results will be provided at the HRSs. These approaches will be compared to the current standard of care (control) in which anti-HCV-positive individuals must travel to a HCV treatment centre for HCV viremia testing. The investigators hypothesize that improving access to viremia testing improves linkage to care and reduces loss to follow-up among those who screen anti-HCV-positive.
Study Population: Subjects with Mild Acute Ischemic Stroke in the anterior circulation within 24 hours from onset. Study objectives: 1. Identify the personal stimulation level for each patient based on physiological biomarkers 2. Identify improvement in stroke symptoms during ISS treatment at the personal stimulation level
To provide real world data on patient characteristics, disease management, healthcare utilization, and outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes and established micro- and/or macrovascular disease
Patients who have shown previous implantation failures, despite transferring good quality and chromosomally normal embryos (diagnosed by PGT-A), could have a displaced Window of Implantation (WOI) and consequently, alterations in their endometrial receptivity. The correction of this displacement can improve the results of the Assisted Reproduction Treatments (ART). The ERA test (Endometrial Receptivity Analysis) evaluates the transcriptomic endometrial profile to determine if the patient's uterus is receptive when the embryo is transferred during an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) process, and identifies the personalized WOI of the patient. This process is called Personalized Embryo Transfer (pET). The Preimplantation Genetic Test of Aneuploidies or PGT-A (Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidy), is currently carried out using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and serves to identify chromosomally normal embryos prior to their transfer in an IVF treatment. Aneuploidies are rarely compatible with life or can cause congenital diseases. So, the identification of chromosomally normal embryos, improves the success of reproduction in cases in which infertility is caused by such aneuploidies. Therefore, the aim of this study is to determine, in a randomized and prospective way, the clinical benefit of adding the ERA test to the embryonic aneuploidies test for patients with a PGT-A indication.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of actovegin in participants with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) Fontaine Stage IIB.
The purpose of this program is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of guselkumab in participants with Crohn's disease.
This is a Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to demonstrate the effect of oral ozanimod as maintenance therapy in subjects with moderately to severely active Crohn's Disease.
This study evaluates whether Echinacea angustifolia (AnxioCalm) is a safe and effective treatment for mild to moderate Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) symptoms. Half the participants will receive Echinacea angustifolia and half will receive placebo.
This study compares the efficacy of a fixed combination of black cohosh (EP-40) and Rhodiola rosea (EPR-7) with low (6.5 mg) and high doses (500 mg) of a standardized black cohosh extract only in adult woman with menopausal complaints.
This is a matched-pairs community randomized controlled trial (CRCT) to examine the impact of coalitions promoting smoke-free air policies on individual secondhand smoke exposure (SHSe). This proposal will build the capacity of Georgia (GE) and Armenia (AM) researchers to conduct high-quality mixed methods tobacco research and test the Community Coalition Action Theory (CCAT) as a framework for impacting local community-driven policy change to inform such processes for the region more broadly. Researchers from the GE National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) and AM National Institute of Health (NIH) will collaborate with Emory to execute the proposed research, train tobacco control researchers within their organizations and partnering universities, and train practitioners within local communities to build local coalitions for tobacco control policy. Twenty-eight communities (14 per country) will participate in the population-level tobacco survey at baseline and follow-up. Within each country, 7 communities will be randomized to the intervention condition and 7 to the control condition (14 communities per condition). In the intervention communities, public health center staff will form a coalition by recruiting partner organizations from civil society and other government sectors (e.g., health care, education), conduct situational assessment, and develop and implement action plans to promote the adoption and enforcement of smoke-free policies in worksites and restaurants, settings selected based on general support for smoke-free policies in these settings and the likelihood of impacting population-level SHSe through widespread reach. The GE NCDC and AM NIH will establish subcontracts with the local public health centers in the randomly selected communities to provide funding for local staff to develop local coalitions and to support program activities. The 14 communities assigned as controls will participate in the population-level survey and be provided with a site-specific summary of findings but will not participate in any aspects of the intervention. Additionally, to examine potential contamination in the control communities, a follow-up interview will be conducted with public health center leaders to assess any local coalition or grassroots actions regarding tobacco control that may have naturally occurred or be influenced by coalition activity in other communities.
