There are about 2643 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Greece. 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.
Retrospective analysis where patients with histologically confirmed Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) were centrally evaluated for the presence of KRAS and EGFR mutations.
Autologous ovarian Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment may enable restoration of the menstrual cycle in perimenopausal women, and subsequently enable the possibility of pregnancy employing their own oocytes.
To-date there have been only very few studies to examine the effect of cataract surgery to patients with wet age-related macular degeneration. The evidence on the effects of cataract surgery in such patients suggests improvement of their visual function and quality of life, but at the same time a subclinical susceptibility to macular edema and exacerbation of the choroidal neovascularization. Therefore it is highly important to identify the optimum treatment regime, pursuing the best anatomical and functional postoperative results.
In this observational study researchers want to learn more about changes in visual acuity (clarity of vision) with proactive flexible treatments over time in patients suffering from wet age-related macular degeneration (wAMD) after decision to treat with Aflibercept (Eylea) was made. Wet AMD is an eye disease that progressively destroys the macula, the central portion of the retina, impairing central vision.
Autologous ovarian Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment may enable ovarian rejuvenation, increase of AMH levels, and improved oocyte retrieval yield in poor responders undergoing single IVF cycle.
The main goal is to determine the optimum dose of ropivacaine, a local anaesthetic, that provides regional anaesthesia with no or minimum adverse effects (i.e. hypotension) when given spinally in healthy full term tall parturients scheduled to undergo caesarean section under combined spinal / epidural anaesthesia (CSEA). The participants' height threshold is based on a local anthropometric research, which included over 2000 people. According to the above research the investigators calculated the female height distribution and decided to include in the study those distributed in the upper quartile (75th to 99th percentile). The female height distribution of the upper quartile ranges from 167 to 184 cm. Secondary objectives are adverse effects related to the anaesthetic technique (hypotension, discomfort, nausea, vomiting and pruritus), the speed of installation and the duration of the regional block (both sensory and motor), blood gas analysis of the newborn umbilical blood as well as newborn Apgar score and lastly the mothers' degree of satisfaction. This is a prospective non randomized double-blinded trial in which a specific algorithm for the local anaesthetic dose will be adopted (up-down sequential allocation). A written informed consent will be required by all participants. The perioperative management of all participants will follow standard clinical protocols. The dose of ropivacaine for each parturient is determined by the response of the previous participant to a higher or lower dose according to the sequential distribution algorithm (up-down sequential allocation). Specifically, the dose of ropivacaine for each parturient (except for the first) will fluctuate by 0.375 mg depending on the success (decrease by 0.375 mg) or failure (increase by 0.375 mg) of the spinal anaesthesia of the previous parturient enrolled in the study. The local anaesthetic dose of the first participant will be determined by a short pilot study.
Muscle power is one of the most important parameters in almost every athletic action, and expresses the ability of the human muscle to produce great amounts of force with the greatest possible speed. Thus, muscle power is critical for high performance in athletic actions such as jumping, throwing, change of direction and sprinting. For enhancing their muscle power, athletes comprise several resistance training programs as part of their training. Muscle power training comprises of eccentric muscle actions, and the magnitude of these actions depend on the emphasis that is given on the concentric or eccentric action, respectively, of the muscles during the exercises. However, eccentric muscle action, especially when unaccustomed, can lead to exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD), and deterioration of muscle performance. Despite the fact that muscle power training comprises eccentric muscle actions, and consequently can lead to muscle injury and muscle performance reduction during the following days, the recovery kinetics after acute muscle power training have not been adequately studied. However, information regarding the recovery of the muscles after a power training protocol, is critical for the correct design of a training microcycle, and the reduction of injury risk. The aim of the present study is to investigate the muscle injury provoked after acute muscle power training using three different power training exercise protocols. Additionally, we will examine the effect of these protocols on muscle performance and neuromuscular fatigue indices.
This is an RCT pilot study to explore the potential effects of the Guided Imagery & Music method for women with breast or gynecologic cancer, during active treatment. The study explores the potential impact in quality of life parameters such as mood, fatigue, and hope.
Aloe vera, sometimes described as pharmaceutical aloe, is a flowering succulent plant with many therapeutic properties such as wound and burn wound healing, treatment of diabetes and reduction of blood lipid profile. These benefits have been primary attributed to its high content in polysaccharides, anthraquinones and lectins. However, aloe vera includes more than 200 ingredients and nutrients (i.e. vitamins, saponins, amino acids, anthraquinones, minerals and trace-elements, salicylic acid, saccharides, lignin, enzymes, sterols) the combination of which offers more powerful effects and health-related benefits compared to each one of them separately. Thus, based on the ingredients and nutrients included, it has been proposed that aloe vera may also offer anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, analgesic and anabolic benefits. Exercise training, especially when it is unaccustomed or characterized by increased intensity, results in skeletal muscle microtrauma accompanied by elevated plasma levels of Creatine Kinase (CK), increased sensation of muscle soreness (DOMS), reduced force generating capacity and marked declines in speed and agility. Both anti-inflammatory and antioxidative mechanisms in skeletal muscle are crucial for the termination of inflammatory response and muscle healing process following exercise-induced aseptic muscle injury and inflammation. Although, it has been proposed that ale vera may elicit anti-inflammatory and antioxidative activity, its effectiveness in alleviating exercise-induced skeletal muscle injury and its symptoms, has not been investigated yet. Therefore, the aim of the present pilot study is to examine the effect of transdermal aloe veral delivery on skeletal muscle damage symptoms following an intense eccentric exercise protocol.
The aim of the HEM-POWR study is to understand better how Damoctocog alfa pegol (Jivi) is used to treat people with Hemophilia A in day-to-day life, how well the treatment is tolerated and how satisfied patients and physicians are with the treatment.
