There are about 884 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 hypothesis of this prospective, cohort study is that hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia and unstable glucose levels in the first seven days of life in infants born very preterm and at very low birth weights can harm long-term neurodevelopment. The objective of the study is to investigate the relationship between early neonatal glycemia, neonatal characteristics, and developmental outcomes in preterm infants. All infants born before 32. gestational week or below 1500 g admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit will be included in the study. According to the glucose values, the infants will be divided into the normoglycemic group and the group with disturbed glucose concentration. In the corrected age of two neurodevelopmental outcome will be assessed and categorized as normal, mild, moderate or severe impairment. Since the results of published studies about the effects of asymptomatic neonatal hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia on neurodevelopment are inconsistent, the correlation between early disturbances in glucose levels and neurodevelopmental outcome will be assessed.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of a yoga program based on "Yoga in daily life system" in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The investigators want to explore whether this program will improve health-related quality of life and psychological well-being in patients. In addition they want to explore its potential positive modulation of the immune system.
This study will compare the efficacy and safety of molecularly-guided therapy versus standard platinum-containing chemotherapy in participants with cancer of unknown primary site (CUP; non-specific subset) who have achieved disease control after 3 cycles of first-line platinum doublet induction chemotherapy.
All kidney transplant recipients require immunosuppression, the net level of which is difficult to assess. Current practice in assessing immune reactivity is to monitor levels of some immunosuppressive drugs. QuantiFERON Monitor® (QFM) is an in vitro diagnostic test that detects interferon-γ (IFN-γ) release in peripheral blood. Its clinical utility in assessment of the net state of immunosuppression in kidney transplant recipients has not been well studied. The aim of our study is to evaluate the discriminating value of QFM testing results for infection and rejection in a single-centre cohort of kidney transplant recipients.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the association of signals recorded and analysed with Ventica® LFTS in infants and preschoolers during acute airway obstruction/asthma exacerbation and recovery thereof for changes in the IP-derived TBFV curves within and between nights.
Introduction and objective: The current state of glucose monitoring includes the use of A1C, self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG), and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). CGM technology has got the potential to revolutionize diabetes care in the near future striving to optimal diabetes management and tight glucose control. Until very recently, this determination could only be achieved by the attainment of multiple capillary blood glucose determinations each day and/or measuring hemoglobin A1C. Those methods are not accurate in cases of unrecognized hypoglycemia, unrecognized nighttime events or in cases of large swings in blood glucose. Our aim is to analyze the benefit of tracking patterns of glucose values by using professional CGM technology used for "blinded" collection of glucose data retrospectively in patients with T2DM in secondary care- diabetologist clinic.
The purpose of this program is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of guselkumab in participants with Crohn's disease.
IPILIMUMAB Extended Access Program for patients who received chemotherapy and / or radiation therapy before the protocol, before or after the operation.
Aim: to search for reasons for seeking orthodontic treatment, compliance during orthodontic treatment, drop-out from orthodontic treatment and success of orthodontic treatment. Methods: evaluation before, during and at the end of orthodontic treatment. Clinical and diagnostic evaluation of complexity before and at the end of orthodontic treatment, evaluation of awareness of treatment need, impact on social and psychological aspects, functional disturbances, impact of malocclusion on quality of life, social interaction, ability to perform daily activities.
Percutaneous coronary intervention for myocardial infarction with ST elevation could be complicated with thrombus embolisation to the more distal segments of the culprit artery. Hypothesis - lower injection pressure could reduce the incidence of this complication. In this study the investigators compare two different protocols for dye injection - first one with higher and the second one with lower injection pressure.The impact of different pressure will be evaluated using the estimation of completeness of resolution of ST elevation as well as Myocardial Blush Grade on the end of the procedure. Patents will be followed for in-hospital mortality and MACE.
