There are about 3424 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in India. 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.
Phacoemulsification in eyes with a shallow anterior chamber (ACD < 2.2mm) presents with problems of safe access to the cataract and increased vulnerability of the endothelium and a higher tendency of complications such as descemet's detachment and iris prolapse. A shallow anterior chamber is also responsible for the high incidence of glaucoma and postoperative complications after cataract surgery. Femtosecond assisted cataract surgery has made cataract surgery safer and more predictable. The effective phacoemulsification time and intra-operative manipulation is greatly reduced in FLACS. However phacoemulsification still remains the most widely performed cataract surgery around the world. Post-operative outcomes after phacoemulsification in patients having shallow anterior chamber have been extensively reported in literature over the years. There is no head to head comparison in terms of intraoperative performance and post-operative outcomes between FLACS and phacoemulsification in eyes with shallow anterior chamber. The aim is to compare the intra-operative performance and post-operative outcomes in eyes undergoing femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery versus eyes undergoing phacoemulsification in eyes having shallow anterior chamber. The study will bring an understanding on the question: Do patients undergoing Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery behave differently from those undergoing phacoemulsification?
Upper gastrointestinal (UGI) bleed of variceal origin is a common medical emergency. Prompt endoscopic variceal ligation (EVL) is therapeutic as well as diagnostic. Terlipressin, a vasopressin analog (intravenous, 2 mg q 4 hourly), is widely used promptly in any suspicious case of variceal haemorrhage (VH) before endoscopic procedure, along with volume and blood resuscitative measures. As per guideline, after EVL Terlipressin therapy (1 mg IV q 4 hourly) is continued for 2-5 day to prevent re-bleed. But the prolong use of Terlipressin is not completely safe as well as it is expensive also in resource constraint setting. At present there is no clinical trial available to prove the efficacy of post-EVL Terlipressin therapy in preventing re-bleed and mortality in cases of acute variceal haemorrhage. During the post marketing surveillance Terlipressin therapy has been found to be associated with life threatening complication like cardiac arrhythmia, myocardial ischemia, critical vasoconstriction of peripheral as well as internal organ leading to ischemia or gangrene, severe hyponatremia, hypertension, fluid overload and pulmonary oedema. So the justification of continuing Terlipressin therapy for 5 days after EVL is questionable, as haemostasis is primarily achieved by EVL and the risk versus benefit of Terlipressin therapy after EVL is still unknown. Continue IV Terlipressin therapy also prolongs in-hospital care causing further increase of health care burden. There is still lack of data of Terlipressin therapy, regarding its efficacy in preventing post-EVL re-bleed, mortality, adverse drug events and cost effectiveness. The investigator will study to evaluate the utility of Terlipressin therapy after EVL, in acute variceal haemorrhage.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate clinical and laboratory safety of eribulin mesylate in treating participants with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer, who have progressed after at least one regimen of chemotherapy which has included anthracycline and taxane therapy.
Ultrasonography is a commonly used diagnostic and procedural adjunctive modality in intensive care. Weaning of neurosurgical patients off ventilatory support is a critical procedure, fraught with risks of hypoxia and hypercapnia. Weaning involves sequential reduction of ventilatory support and regular assessments for extubation followed by spontaneous breathing trials. In this study, we evaluate parameters of ultrasonographic evaluation of lung aeration and cardiac function in neurosurgical patients undergoing weaning and their ability to predict successful weaning and extubation.
This study is undertaken to compare effectiveness of homoeopathic treatment versus integrated approach of homoeopathy and yoga in the treatment of menstrual disorders in females with Polycystic ovarian syndrome.
This study is intended to compare the efficacy of platelet-rich fibrin as a graft and a membrane versus hyaluronic acid(Gengigel) and amniotic membrane in the treatment of mandibular grade II furcation defects.
India's poor tribal communities have far worse health and social indicators than the general population. Most tribal people live in remote forested or desert areas where illiteracy, trying physical environments, malnutrition, inadequate access to potable water, and lack of personal hygiene and sanitation make them more vulnerable to disease.The aim of Chhatralaya initiatives taken by Arsha Vidya, Jaipur was to address the exclusion of the socially and economically disadvantaged children of the tribes and to provide a fair opportunity to all.
BBC Media Action is presently implementing two large scale mobile health (mHealth) initiatives in India: Kilkari and Mobile Academy. Kilkari is an outbound service that delivers weekly, time-appropriate audio messages about pregnancy, childbirth, and childcare directly to families on their mobile phones, starting from the second trimester of pregnancy until the child is one-year-old. Mobile Academy (MA) is an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) in-service audio training course for Accredited social health activists (ASHAs) in India designed to refresh their knowledge of life-saving preventative health behaviors and improve their interpersonal communications skills. Both programs were initiated in Bihar in 2012, and have been scaled widely in a number of states with support from Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) at the national level, National Health Missions (NHM) at the state level, and an alliance of donors (Gates Foundation, USAID, Barr Foundation, and UK Department for International Development (UKAid)). The Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Oxford Policy Management, and University of Cape Town are supporting BBC Media Action and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) are conducting an external evaluation of both Kilkari and Mobile Academy (MA). The evaluation spans through April 2020.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of lenvatinib in participants with recurrent, metastatic radio-iodine refractory differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC).
The profiling of bi-spectral index (BIS) monitored facilitation of general anesthesia (GA), including, anesthesia induction and maintenance of GA depth state, emergence characteristics, and postoperative recovery parameters, is now extensively available. However, majority of the data supporting the use of BIS have emanated from western Caucasian patient population. Though research on BIS monitoring have also emerged from Asian subcontinent, the data generated, at the best, is too scattered, random, and non-homogenous to reflect onto how BIS guidance fares in Asians on a population basis. We aim to undertake a multi-centric prospective cohort trial in Asian patient population to analyze as to whether BIS guidance toes the profiling and the evidence in Caucasians.
