There are about 920 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Croatia. 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 primary objective of this study is to assess the chances of increasing the number of antral follicles in ovarian tissue of patients with diminished ovarian reserve by activation of primordial follicles through ovarian cortex fragmentation. Secondary objectives are to assess potential association with the number of oocytes retrieved and pregnancy rates after IVF.
According to the results from the literature, it has been shown that levosimendan usage 24-48 hours before LVAD implementation can improve short and long-term outcome in these patients regarding to the patients without preoperative pretreatment. The aim is to compare short and long-term outcome in patients who underwent to LVAD implementation and pretreated with levosimendan regarding the patient without pretreatment or with other medications.
The aim of the study is to investigate the effect of preoperative epidural dexmedetomidine compared to dexamethasone on postoperative pain control, analgesic consumption and oxydative stress response in patients undergoing thoracic surgery
A prospective, multi-national, open-label clinical study which is conducted to asses the safety, feasibility and performance of the TRVD™ System in hospital-admitted patients with Acute Decompensated Heart Failure (ADHF) and evidence of reduced left ventricular ejection fraction. The study will include patients who present with significant venous congestion, as evidenced by clinical, laboratory and imaging signs of fluid retention. Study participation, for each enrolled subject, will last approximately 3 months post index procedure. Patients will be evaluated from enrollment until hospital discharge, then at 30, 60, and 90 days post procedure.
The objective of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of upadacitinib for the treatment of adolescent and adult participants with moderate to severe AD who are candidates for systemic therapy.
The aim of this cross-sectional study is to investigate the level of stress and quality of life in parents of children with developmental disabilities (Down syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, pervasive developmental disorder, cerebral palsy) and parents of children chronic diseases (diabetes mellitus type 1, epilepsy, asthma) compared to parents of healthy children. The investigators will analyze the level of stress, quality of life, self-esteem, optimism, resilience, happiness, stigmatization, depression, anxiety, sleep quality, parenting challenges and some physiological indicators of the stress such as level of cortisol and heart rate variability. Also, the investigators will measure Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs) in the skin. The investigators assume that parents of children with developmental disabilities and chronic diseases have higher level of stress and lower quality of life compared to the parents of healthy children.
This is an investigational study of experimental medication BMS-986165 in patients with moderate to severe Crohn's Disease, a chronic bowel disease that causes severe inflammation of the digestive tract.
The aim of the study is to compare the effectiveness of two therapeutic protocols in the treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection. The hypothesis of our research is that the two therapeutic options (hybrid and concomitant therapy) will be equally successful in the treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection. In other words, in both therapeutic groups we expect successful treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection in or more than 90 % of patients. In other studies, both therapeutic options have the same efficacy in treating H. pylori infection. On the other had there are no studies available in Croatia to compare the effectiveness of these therapeutic options so far, which is the main objective of our research. The secondary goals of our study will be: the existence of differences in the occurrence of possible side effects, as well as the compliance between patients in both therapeutic options. It is also our aim to compare the quality of life of patients with Helicobacter pylori infection before and after treatment, via a questionnaire that is common for this purpose. The study is expected to include a total of 174 patients (87 patients in each therapy group), and the planned duration is 6 months.
The objective of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of upadacitinib for the treatment of adolescent and adult participants with moderate to severe Atopic Dermatitis (AD) who are candidates for systemic therapy.
Participants will be randomly given one of two formats containing descriptions of health interventions. In one format, participants will have to read short summaries where results of the intervention are presented as frequencies and the side effects of health intervention are presented as percentages, while in another format the frames will be reversed (results will be presented as percentages and side effects as frequencies). After reading, participants will be asked several questions about the content of the summary and its conclusions.
