NCT ID: NCT03193255 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Contact Lens Solution Toxicity

Efficacy and Safety of cleadewGP for Rigid Contact Lenses

Start date: June 14, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Multipurpose solutions (MPS) are the most commonly prescribed regimen to clean, disinfect and rinse rigid lenses. The preservatives used in MPS may cause hypersensitivity and the presence of quaternary ammonium compounds (QAC) may increase development of antiseptic resistance mediated by QAC resistance genes, thus lowering the efficacy of disinfection. Povidone-iodine (PVI) has been safely used as a disinfectant for ophthalmic operations and eye drops. The cleadew GP (Ophtecs, Japan) tested in the current study is a PVI based rigid lens disinfecting solutions which does not employ QAC. If its efficacy and safety can be confirmed in this study, it will be a good alternative rigid lens care regimen for children.

NCT ID: NCT03191942 Recruiting - Myopia Clinical Trials

Variation of Orthokeratology Lens Treatment Zone (VOLTZ) Study

Start date: June 14, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This project aims to study the effects of treatment characteristics on myopia control in orthokeratology by investigating the effects of modified treatment zone by reducing the lens back optic zone diameter on the effect of myopia control. The project will be a two-year randomized, double-masked (examiner - mask axial length only) study conducted at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University recruiting sixty Chinese subjects aged between 6-11. Subjects will be randomly assigned to two ortho-k groups. The Control group will wear KATT BeFree lens with a BOZD of 6mm while the Test group will wear KATT MC lens with a modified BOZD of 5mm.

NCT ID: NCT03185273 Recruiting - Child Development Clinical Trials

Parent-child Relationship Among Low-income Families in Hong Kong

Start date: March 9, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

This is a prospective cohort study building upon the existing cohort study on the effectiveness of the Trekkers Family Enhancement Scheme. This study will sample 200 low-income parent-child pairs and follow them up for 24 months with yearly assessment on parental stress and child health using both subjective measures and objective physiological parameters. Additional data on parenting style, neighbourhood cohesion, child physical assault and neglect potential, parental mental health and HRQOL and family disharmony will also be collected at each assessment time point for testing mediating and moderating mechanisms between parental stress and child health. The baseline assessment will be carried out in 2016-17 with three repeated assessments after 6 months, 12 months, and 24 months.

NCT ID: NCT03184259 Recruiting - Stroke Clinical Trials

Interactive Exoskeleton Robot for Walking

Start date: July 1, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

A new lower-limb training system is introduced to enhance the clinical service for post-stroke lower limb rehabilitation and to assist the establishment of public clinical trial in different settings and share experiences on the robot-assisted functional training.

NCT ID: NCT03183635 Recruiting - Stroke Clinical Trials

Rapid Movement Therapy for Stroke Rehabilitation

Start date: September 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Stroke survivors have higher risks of falling compared to other healthy non-stroke adults. Stroke patients' balance can be trained by Kinect-based training that enable user friendly and interactive training.

NCT ID: NCT03182790 Not yet recruiting - Smoking Cessation Clinical Trials

Promoting Smoking Cessation in the Community Via "Quit to Win" Contest 2017

Start date: June 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The present study will examine (1) the effectiveness of regular messages and semi-personalized instant messaging with AWARD brief advice and active referral to smoking cessation (SC) services and (2) explore the use of CBPR model to build capacity and to engage community partners in taking on this important public health issue for sustainability in the community. In addition, a process evaluation will be conducted to assess the effectiveness of the recruitment activity and how it is linked with the overall program outcomes.

NCT ID: NCT03182764 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Survey on Tobacco Control

Tobacco Control-Related Policy Survey

Start date: April 28, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Aim: to collect further information on issues related to tobacco control which should be addressed and advocated in further tobacco control measures in Hong Kong The objectives of this policy-related survey are as follows: 1. to update information on trends and prevalence of secondhand smoke, smoking attributable health effects, cessation services, and e-cigarette; 2. to investigate the level of public support on current and future tobacco control measures and taxation; 3. to address the timely impacts of smoke-free policies, public support for further tobacco control measures and assist COSH in shaping policy direction for government. Current study is a cross-sectional retrospective telephone survey based on questionnaires. In total, 5,104 subjects will be randomly selected for a telephone interview. The subjects will be categorized into three groups, i.e. never smokers (1,700), ex-smokers (1,700) and current smokers (1,704). They will be required to answer a questionnaire via telephone. All data shall be collected using a Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI) system, which allows real-time data capture and consolidation. All interviews shall be conducted anonymously. Analysis of survey data will aim to identify current opinion on tobacco control policies and implications for future policies. Analyses will be controlled for confounding variables as required by stratification into sub-groups based on important pre-defined characteristics and/or by multivariate analysis. Comparison with past trends and, where possible, extrapolation of future trends will be explored. Weights will be applied to adjust for the sex and age of Hong Kong population, and to handle the over-sampling issues of current smokers. The data analysis will be conducted by statisticians.

NCT ID: NCT03180931 Active, not recruiting - Coronary Thrombosis Clinical Trials

Independent OCT Registry on Very Late Bioresorbable Scaffold Thrombosis

INVEST
Start date: December 2, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

Bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS, ABSORB BVS1.1, Abbott Vascular) has been approved (CE mark) and is used in daily clinical practice. While recent randomized controlled trials comparing BVS versus metallic drug-eluting stent showed higher risk of definite or probable device thrombosis after BVS implantation, the causes underlying thrombotic events occurring beyond one year after scaffold implantation remain unclear and require investigation in an independent manner. The INVEST registry is a world-wide, multi-center, observational, retrospective, investigator-initiated registry, which will include any patients who suffered from very late (>1 year) scaffold thrombosis, underwent optical coherence tomography (OCT) at the time of thrombosis and provided informed consent for the further use of their health related data for this registry.
