There are about 1481 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Ireland. 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.
A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical study to evaluate the efficacy of raspberry extract to alleviate symptoms of osteoarthritis in the knee.
The process of bone remodeling exhibits pronounced diurnal pattern that is important for bone health. A balanced rate of bone resorption is required to maintain bone health, a balance that can be disturbed during the life-cycle to effect net rate of formation (as occurs during growth and development to adulthood) or net resorption (as occurs, for example, during the menopause). Bone turnover is a nutritionally modulated process and the investigators believe a milk-based protein supplement (MBPS) can modulate beneficially the rate of bone resorption over the time period when bone remodeling is most active i.e. late evening/overnight. In this novel approach to the timing of nutrient ingestion, the proposed nutrient intervention seeks to modify (reduce) the rate of bone resorption and promote the rate of bone formation to the benefit of bone health in this at risk population..
This is a translational, multicentre and multinational study. The aim of this study is to identify new patient stratification tools in microsatellite stable RAS mutant metastatic Colorectal Cancer
A trial to investigate if a single dose of the oral corticosteroid, Dexamethasone is as effective in treating exacerbations of asthma in children as 3 days of treatment with another oral corticosteroid, Prednisolone
This is an exploratory, translational and non-interventional clinical study. The aim of this study is to identify a blood biomarker signature for glioma.
The main purpose of this study is to compare two different types of HIV treatments, in terms of effectiveness and improvement of side effects, for patients who are diagnosed with a more advanced HIV infection. Patients with advanced HIV infections are otherwise known as 'late presenters'. There are many effective treatments for HIV available; however, for late presenting patients the investigators do not know which type of treatment performs best. This is the first large study to compare treatments for patients in this situation, and the investigators hope that the results of this study will help doctors decide which treatments to use in the future. The two different types of treatment the investigators are comparing both contain a mixture of drugs that work together to combat HIV: The Boosted Protease Inhibitor combination (PI) which is a combination tablet containing: darunavir, cobicistat, emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide. It was approved for use in Europe under the brand name Symtuza®. The Integrase Inhibitor combination (INI). Which is a combination tablet containing: bictegravir, emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide. This is a a newer combination which was approved for use in Europe in June 2018 under the brand name of Biktarvy®. The main difference between the two treatments is how each one fights a HIV infection. They both stop a part of the virus from working (i.e. inhibit it), to prevent it from making copies of itself. The PI treatment contains drugs to stop the protease part of the virus, whereas the INI treatment contains drugs to stop the integrase part. In recent studies, it appears that treatments containing integrase inhibitors may be better for late presenting patients. They have been shown to quickly bring down the amount of virus in the body, and the side effects may be more acceptable to late presenters. To compare the two treatments, half of the participants on this study will be given the PI treatment, and the other half will be given the INI treatment.
This study randomises patients with venous leg ulcers, to be managed either using conventional compression bandages or a bridged vacuum assisted closure system under compression.
This study will be looking at the effect of compression therapy in patients having Mechano-Chemical Ablation (MOCA) therapy for truncal incompetence of their varicose veins using the ClariVein® device. Patients will be randomised to either the compression group (group A) or the no compression group (group B). The pain scores, compliance, quality of life scores, occlusion rate at 6 months as well as the cost effectiveness of each intervention will be assessed.
This is a phase 2 study to evaluate safety and efficacy of ABBV-105 and ABBV-599 (ABBV-105 plus upadacitinib) vs placebo on a background of conventional synthetic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (csDMARDS) for the treatment of signs and symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) at 12 weeks in biological disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs(bDMARD)-inadequate response (bDMARD-IR) or bDMARD-intolerant participants with moderately to severely active RA and to define optimal dose for further development.
Sickle cell anaemia is an inherited blood disorder which results in abnormal sickle shaped red blood cells which do not fit well through small blood vessels. These blockages prevent oxygen (in blood) from reaching different parts of the body resulting in painful crisis. This study will compare the effectiveness of two types of pain medication, one given through a vein and one squirted up the nose.
