There are about 6670 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Israel. 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.
Prospective, Multinational, Multicenter, Randomized, Parallel Controlled, Two arms, Single Blind, Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of D-PLEX Administered Concomitantly with the Standard of Care (SOC) IV Prophylactic Antibiotic Treatment vs. SOC in Prevention of Post-Cardiac Surgery Sternal Infections. Study to assess D-PLEX efficacy and safety in preventing sternal infections over a period of 90 days (3 months) post cardiac surgery with median sternotomy, in patients with high risk for infection compared to the control arm.
The aim of the study is to evaluate the feasibility and safety and efficacy of collecting and infusing autologous umbilical cord blood (UCB) in newborn infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and transposition of great arteries (TGA). Rationale: Neonates with HLHS and TGA have significant brain injury as demonstrated by peri-surgical MRI. Moreover, there a substantial tendency to suffer from chronic cardiac condition as low cardiac output state and valvular insufficiency. Treatment of neonates after hypoxic ischemic injury at birth with autologous UCB was shown to safe and improved developmental outcome. The effect of UCB is most likely achieved by reduction of free radicals injury and pro-inflammatory and apoptotic process. Hypothesis: Treatment with UCB immediately after the first cardiac surgey, with in the first week life will reduce the brain injury demonstrated by MRI and reduce the choronic cardiac problems
As bleeding is a major risk in bariatric surgeries, we aimed our study to find any predictors to such bleeding within the surgery or 30 days after surgery. Our study is a retrospective study collecting patients data, surgeons data and hospitals data in order to find if any of the factors influencing patients, surgeons or hospitals, has to do with bleeding in these surgeries and if it does impact bleeding in what way. The goal is finding a predictor that it's neutralizing may prevent bleeding in bariatric surgeries.
Objectives: Our primary objective is to evaluate the effect of anesthetic method (general versus regional anesthesia) on neural outcomes in the preeclamptic population undergoing cesarean delivery. Secondary outcome is to examine the fetal cerebral outcomes associated with the anesthetic method. Methodology: This prospective, observational study, will include 50 preeclamptic parturients undergoing cesarean section under general and regional anesthesia. Neuron specific enolase and S100B Protein are neuronal injury biomarkers. Increased levels of these biomarkers in serum indicate neuron damage. Following enrollment venous blood will be drawn from the participants and assessed for NSE and S100B serum levels at the following points; Upon hospital admission and one day postpartum. Furthermore in order to evaluate fetal outcomes upon fetal delivery, umbilical cord blood will be assed for NSE and S100B. Study significance: While spinal anesthesia is the preferred anesthetic method for the preeclamptic parturient undergoing cesarean delivery, it remains uncertain which anesthetic method is neuroprotective. This study will be the first study, to our knowledge, to examine the effect of anesthetic method on neuronal outcomes for a parturient with preeclampsia undergoing cesarean delivery, by the use of noninvasive cerebral biomarkers.
Epidural analgesia is considered a gold standard method for treatment of labor pain. One of the major risks with epidural analgesia is an accidental dural puncture, which leads to a post dural puncture headache. This headache is associated with significant maternal morbidity and can result in severe maternal consequences. Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is defined as an anxiety syndrome, resulting from a traumatic experience. Postpartum PTSD, is a form of PTSD that can occur in relation to a traumatic birth experience. As PDPH is unexpected and can cause severe maternal sequele, PDPH can exhibit a posttraumatic stress response. Therefore we hypothesize that parturients who suffered from a PDPH are at higher risk for developing PP-PTSD. To date, very few reports have examined the long term outcomes of parturients suffering from a PDPH. As a follow up to the national survey of PDPH management in Israel the investigators aim, in this prospective multi center, observational study, to evaluate the long term outcomes of parturients suffering from a PDPH, including chronic headache, backache, postpartum depression, decreased breastfeeding and the development of PP PTSD.
This study will look at the change in participant's body weight from the start to the end of the study. This is to compare the effect on body weight in people taking semaglutide (a new medicine) and people taking "dummy" medicine. In addition to taking the medicine, the participant will have talks with study staff about healthy food choices, how to be more physically active and what a participant can do to lose weight. The participant will get semaglutide for the first 20 weeks. Then the participant will get either semaglutide or "dummy" medicine - which treatment the participant gets after the 20 weeks is decided by chance. The participants will need to take 1 injection once a week. The study medicine is injected with a thin needle in a skin fold in the stomach, thigh or upper arm. The study will last for about 1.5 years.
The purpose of this study is to characterize neuropsychological mechanisms mediating processing of social feedback in people with different levels of social anxiety, by implementing functional and structural MRI.
The primary hypothesis in this trial is that the treatment with vericiguat 10 mg or 15 mg in patients with HFpEF improves the KCCQ PLS (Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire Physical limitation score) compared to placebo after 24 weeks of treatment.
A Feasibility Study To Evaluate the Safety and initial Effectiveness of MR guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery in the Treatment of pain resulting from Metastatic Bone Tumors with the ExAblate 2000 strappable system.
SpO2 instability is in the nature of premature infants. Hypoxic episodes occur spontaneously in many of these infants, especially after the first week of life. Different interventions have been shown to influence the incidence of hypoxemic episodes in premature infants. A few studies point towards potential clinical benefits of better oxygenation and less hypoxic events by positioning very low birth weight infants prone, though a recent meta-analysis didn't find a clear benefit of prone position. The aim of this study is to evaluate the changes in oxygenation among preterm infants receiving respiratory support when positioned prone versus supine, as documented by SpO2 histograms.
