There are about 6188 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.
The study is a genetic historical cohort study in a military combat recruits - this study does not examine a specific treatment but rather examines a statistical link between medical history of traumatic fractures, clinical diagnosis of stress fractures and the presence of unique SNPs in subjects DNA.
Small-scale experiments conducted by our group have led to the hypothesis that Localized Provoked Vulvodynia (LPV) may be due to laxity of the Utero-Sacral ligaments (USL). According to this hypothesis, the pain experienced by women with LPV is due to the USL's inability to provide appropriate support for the pudendal nerve. In order to test this hypothesis we will conduct a single-blind randomized control trial in which patients with LPV will undergo a pressure-test - pressure will be temporarily applied to the posterior fornix using a speculum, thus strengthening the USL and adding support to the pudendal nerve. While the pressure is being applied, the cotton-swab test will be performed (palpating vulvar and vestibular sites using a cotton-swab), and each patient will rate the elicited pain on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 - not painful, 10 - worst pain imaginable). The results for each patient will be compared to their baseline level of pain (which will be recorded in the beginning of the experiment) and to the level of pain they report while inserting a speculum but not applying any pressure.
In this study we will compare the effect of manipulated vs. non-manipulated feedback during the rehabilitation of individuals with disability due to stiff shoulder following multiple trauma. This will be accomplished using the state-of-the-art real-time motion capture technology.
The study has 2 phases: - The Retrospective Phase (50 patients were diagnosed to have sepsis according to our definition and criteria and 30 patients as a controlled cases ) - The Prospective Phase (600 patients who will be admitted and monitored in ICU in order to get at least 30 sepsis cases, according to our definition and criteria). Measurements will be made from the forehead using the TTP's biocompatible sensor Unit that will be attached to the skin. The SU will transfer data to the MCU.
A prospective, single arm, multi-center clinical study to evaluate the safety and performance of the SRS (Lyra Medical) vaginal mesh in POP patients
Create a personalized time and context curve of patient circulating α1-antitrypsin (AAT) levels and functions before hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and throughout progression into GVHD. PRIMARY ENDPOINT 1. Serum AAT levels and activity, before myeloablative preconditioning, as well as on days (-3),0,7,14,28 from HSCT and every 21 days thereafter. SECONDARY ENDPOINTS 1. Correlation between AAT patterns and: - Circulating immune cell activation profiles on day of ablation, 28 days from HSCT and once GVHD is diagnosed. - Patient survival - Liver function tests - GVHD grade: skin manifestations, weight, GI and liver histopathology - Graft-versus-leukemia effect
Background: Procedures of hand hygiene are an important component in prevention of cross-transmission of infections in hospitals. In recent years, hand washing with antiseptic soap (chlorhexidine) was replaced with use of alcohol-based hand rub. This change brought an increase in compliance with hand hygiene regulations from 30-40% to over 50%, and in other places up to 70%. However, even 70% compliance is not enough. One of the reported reasons for lack of compliance of staff to the use of alcohol-based preparations is skin irritation and dryness of the hands as a result of frequent use. At Sheba, like the majority of Israeli hospitals, the product used for handwashing is Septol (Teva), which includes 0.5% chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) and 70% ethyl alcohol. The CDC, WHO and FDA guidelines approve for use of hospital hand hygiene, products that contain between 61-85% ethanol. The investigators will replace the Septol currently used with a different alcohol-based antiseptic that is more user-friendly, and aim to determine whether this will increase the compliance with hand hygiene protocols. The investigators will assess 1. Satisfaction of staff. 2. Increase of hand hygiene compliance.
This study will evaluate the clinical performance and safety of a self-administered abortive treatment for migraine headache using combined occipital and supraorbital transcutaneous nerve stimulator (Neurolief device, Relievion™).
As for today, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is indicated only in symptomatic patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) at high surgical risk. As cancer therapy improves, some AS patients suffering active malignancy (including advanced metastatic diseases) may be more endangered by their untreated valvular disease than their oncological disease. Among these patients, TAVI may be indicated before cancer related surgery or cardiotoxic anti-cancer therapy in order to achieve better anti-cancer therapy outcomes. Individualized life expectancy assumptions should be evaluated by the heart team in the clinical decision-making process as an essential factor in weighing the risk-benefit ratio for oncologic patients undergoing TAVI. A multicenter, international TAVI in Oncology Patients with AS (TOP-AS) registry was designed to collect data on patients with an active malignancy and severe AS undergoing TAVI. The aim of the study is to evaluate the outcomes, benefits and risks of oncology patients undergoing TAVI, mainly the patients' survival and cause of death and also the interactions between the valvular and the oncologic conditions.
Establishing that mucosal healing (MH) has occurred after therapy is an important treatment goal, and the gold standard is endoscopic evaluation. In UC it is unclear if clinical parameters are adequate. The pediatric ulcerative colitis activity index (PUCAI) has demonstrated good correlations for clinical remission and disease severity, but its role for establishing mucosal healing after therapy has not been validated . The ability to predict mucosal healing may be different for patients in long term remission compared to assessment after obtaining clinical remission. No previous study has prospectively validated the use of PUCAI as a proxy for MH specifically during clinical remission after therapy.
