There are about 428 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Indonesia. 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.

Prevalence of osteoarthritis increases every year, as a chronic and progressive disease. Osteoarthritis also gives many negative impacts in socio-economic life. Current management of osteoarthritis only aimed to relieve pain but not to resolve the degeneration of cartilage. Mesenchymal stem cell is one kind of adult stem cell that has potency in tissue engineering. Sources of mesenchymal stem cell are bone marrow, adipose tissue and umbilical cord. Researchers want to explore the potential of umbilical cord as the source of allogeneic MSC, because the gaining process of MSC is not invasive. Some countries have started some In vitro studies, Animal studies, and human research, but in Indonesia the study of mesenchymal stem cell implantation from umbilical cord in genu osteoarthritis management has not been reported. This study will be held into two years in Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital and include 9 participants minimally. The researcher also compares the efficacy and safety of MSC implantation from umbilical cord applied to genu osteoarthritis with synovial artificial and recombinant human growth hormone therapy.
Gastroesophageal varices occurs in approximately half of the patients with liver cirrhosis. Variceal bleeding is the most common lethal complication directly from cirrhotic portal hypertension. The golden standard for diagnosing gastroesophageal varices and evaluating the risk of variceal bleeding is the esophagogastroduodenoscopy. According to the Baveno VI consensus, for those with high-risk varices (varies needing treatment), either non-selective beta blockers or endoscopic band ligation is recommended for the prevention of the first variceal bleeding. However, the invasiveness and uncomfortableness during the esophagogastroduodenoscopy procedure has hindered its routine use in clinical practice, especially in compensated cirrhotic patients. The important role of transient elastography for defining the presence of high-risk varices was highlighted in the Baveno VI consensus workshop that cirrhotic patients with a liver stiffness measurement (LSM) of less than 20 kPa and a platelet count of greater than 150,000/μL can avoid screening endoscopy. In addition, transient elastography-based models (e.g. LSM combined with platelet count, liver stiffness spleen diameter-to-platelet score) were shown to have potentials in distinguish the absence of high-risk gastroesophageal varices. However, this cutoff value of LSM was validated mainly in cohorts with alcoholic or hepatitis C virus dominated cirrhosis. The unmet need is a precise cutoff to rule out high-risk varices in hepatitis B virus dominated cirrhosis, which is an outstanding issue in Asia-Pacific population. FibroTouch (Hisky Medical Technologies Co. Ltd, Wuxi, China) is a new-generation of transient elastography based on a two-dimensional image-guided system to ensure the precise orientation. In the present study, the investigators aim to conduct an international prospective diagnostic trial with 16 sites to develop and validate the diagnostic performance of FibroTouch-based models for assessing risk of gastroesophageal varices bleeding in compensated cirrhosis.
Erythema Nodosum Leprosum (ENL) is a painful, debilitating complication of leprosy. Patients often require high doses of corticosteroids for prolonged periods. Thalidomide is expensive and not available in most countries. The use of corticosteroids for long periods is associated with adverse effects and mortality. It is a priority to identify alternative agents to treat ENL. Methotrexate (MTX) is a cheap, widely used medication which has been reported to be effective in ENL resistant to steroids and thalidomide.
