There are about 1306 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.
To investigate the safety and efficacy of abatacept with steroid treatment in comparison to steroid treatment alone in up to a 28 week taper of steroid treatment to sustain remission of Giant Cell Arteritis in adults.
This is a multicentre, multinational, prospective observational investigation on ICU critically ill patients affected by nosocomial pneumonia, defined as: Out of ICU Hospital-acquired Pneumonia (HAP), Non-ventilator ICU-acquired Pneumonia (NV ICUAP), Ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) Ventilator associated tracheobronchitis (VAT).
The Low Von Willebrand in Ireland Cohort (LoVIC) study focuses on the bleeding phenotype and biological mechanisms underlying low Von Willebrand Factor (VWF) levels.
The purpose of the trial is to investigate new clinical tests that could predict what treatments work best for certain patients with advanced prostate cancer by identifying markers and indicators present in blood and tissue which correlate with treatment response.
Emerging evidence suggests that microorganisms acting via the Brain-Gut axis may have potential benefits for the management of stress-related conditions. The majority of studies have focused on animal models. Preclinical studies have identified the Lactobacillus Rhamnosus JB-1 strain as a putative psychobiotic with an impact on stress-related behaviours, physiology and cognitive performance. Whether such preclinical effects could be translated to healthy human volunteers remains unknown.
This study aims at evaluating real life effectiveness of originator adalimumab (Humira®) participants with active non-infectious intermediate, posterior and panuveitis (NIIPPU) despite high-dose corticosteroid therapy; including effect on ocular inflammation, health-related quality of life, health resource utilization, work ability and medication burden, as well as describe the characteristics of NIIPPU participants treated with Humira® in the real-life setting.
This study is a phase Ib, open label, multi-centre trial designed to estimate the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of lithium when combined with a standard chemotherapy regimen of oxaliplatin and capecitabine in patients with advanced, unresectable, oesophago-gastric or colorectal cancer who have received no previous treatment for advanced disease (previous adjuvant or neo-adjuvant treatment is acceptable if completed at least 6 months prior to registration). The study follows a modified Fibonacci, 3+3, dose escalation design. Patients are enrolled in cohorts of 3. All three patients in each cohort must complete at least two cycles of treatment to be evaluable for toxicity. If a patient cannot complete 2 cycles, another patient will be enrolled.
To establish the effectiveness of an internet-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy pain management programme (CBT-PMP) on people with spinal cord injury pain compared with usual care.
Based on new evidence renal dietitians in Ireland are revising the diet sheet that is used to teach patients about reducing blood phosphate. Changes that renal dietitians plan to make to the dietary phosphorus prescription - Inclusion of some nuts and pulses - More detailed education re phosphate additives - More accurate protein prescription - Inclusion of more whole grains - Encouraging the use of foods with a low phosphorus to protein ratio The investigators want to test the two diet prescription to find out, which one is better at reducing blood phosphate and which one is more acceptable to patients. The investigators also want to make sure it is safe.
Pain following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is associated with delayed recovery, impaired mobility, increased morbidity, longer hospital stay and greater cost. Adductor canal block has recently been shown to improve the pain control of patients following TKA. It is not known whether a single shot technique or a continuous catheter-based infusion technique provides optimal analgesia. The investigators hypothesize that a continuous technique would provide better analgesia and permit patients to achieve objective measures of recovery following TKA than a single shot technique.
