There are about 3625 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.
This study aims to build capacity in India by: 1. Developing tailored protocol methodologies for research including technical capability in imaging (MRI/S protocols & customised software), dietary intervention delivery, dietary evaluation, and biochemical analyses, using available local resources in Kerala. 2. Training and enhancing imaging skills of clinical radiographers in Kerala for research studies 3. Training local professionals and researchers in skills necessary to design, deploy and evaluate diet/lifestyle interventions, including patient engagement, in Kerala. This study will deliver and evaluate a simple dietary intervention pilot study in the Kerala region in conjunction with local nutritionists, healthcare professionals and partner researchers at PHRI (Population Health and Research Institute, Trivandrum, Kerala, India).

- Periodontal disease- Inflammatory, Multifactorial, and Threshold disease. Periodontal disease is a highly prevalent dental disease, an almost 100% prevalence in developing countries. - Non-surgical periodontal includes scaling and root planing (SRP) an essential part of successful periodontal therapy. - The spread of infection through aerosol and splatter has long been considered one of the main reason for the possible transmission of infectious agents and their ill effects on The Health of patients and Dental Health care Professionals. - Aerosols are generated during Tooth preparation/Rotary instrument/ air abrasion/Air-water syringe, Ultrasonic scaler, and while doing Air polishing. - Studies have also reported an association of these aerosols with Respiratory infections, Ophthalmic and Skin infections, Tuberculosis, and Hepatitis B. current research suggests that having patients use an antimicrobial rinse before treatment may decrease microbial aerosols. - Chlorhexidine mouthwash is regarded as Gold Standard mouthwash but, have many local side effects including have many local side effects including extrinsic tooth and tongue brown staining, taste disturbance, enhanced supragingival calculus formation, less commonly, desquamation of oral mucosa, and even liver damage in rats. - In the emerging era of pharmaceuticals, herbal medicines with their naturally occurring active ingredients offer a gentle and enduring way for the restoration of health by the least harmful method. - Ocimum Sanctum (Tulsi) is known as THE QUEEN OF HERBS effective in reducing plaque accumulation, gingival inflammation, and bleeding & has no side effects as compared to Chlorhexidine. Very few studies which can be counted on fingers have been conducted worldwide in this direction, globally showing their beneficial effects.
All consenting, adult patients aged 18 years and above who will require elective ventilation after liver transplant recipient surgery will be enrolled for the study. Patients in acute liver failure, hepatic encephalopathy or patients with history of allergic reactions to propofol will be excluded from the study. This is an observational study. As per institute treatment protocol, propofol will be given post-operatively at a dose of 1 mg/kg/hr and than titrated to maintain a Bi-Spectral Index (BIS) score of 60-80 till the patient is on ventilator. There will be no deviation from our routine institutional protocol and no other sedative drugs like opioids or benzodiazepines will be used and no interventions will be done. Hemodynamics will be maintained targeting a mean arterial pressure (MAP) of at least 65 mm Hg. during the study period using appropriate measures.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety of perampanel in the treatment of partial onset seizures in participants of age 12 years and older with epilepsy.
This study is designed to evaluate and compare the effect on hemodynamics, extubation response and patients satisfaction score in patients with ETT cuff filled with either mixture of lignocaine with sodium bicarbonate or with a mixture of lignocaine with dexamethasone.
The objective of this study is to perform a randomized study, comparing the outcomes of the above two types of cystoscopy in terms of discomfort experienced by the patient, while undergoing the procedure.
To study and evaluate the Effectiveness of Treatment by Percutaneous Electrical NeuroStimulation (PENS) for post-operative pain in Cesarean Section patients using First Relief
Alcoholic liver disease has become one of the foremost causes of chronic liver disease across the world, and a cause of considerable morbidity and mortality. Alcoholic steatohepatitis is an entity in this broad spectrum, with severe alcoholic hepatitis transitioning to acute on chronic liver failure carrying a one month mortality of as high as 20 to 50%. The current management guidelines for severe alcoholic hepatitis show benefit with prolonged alcohol abstinence, nutritional support, the use of corticosteroids, pentoxifylline or N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) and early liver transplantation. However, major studies and meta-analyses have demonstrated that these interventions, with the exception of early liver transplantation, do not improve mortality rates to the level of statistical significance. Owing to the high short term mortality associated with severe alcoholic hepatitis, the inadequacy of a treatment that could significantly impact this short term mortality, and the limited applicability of early liver transplantation, a study on newer modalities of treatment is warranted. The role that human gut microbiota plays in health and disease is receiving considerable attention. Targeting intestinal dysbiosis, a phenomenon found to be intricately linked with the causation of alcoholic hepatitis, could provide insights into novel therapeutic strategies. Fecal microbiota transplantation is a novel approach that has gained widespread acceptance in in the management of recurrent severe Clostridium difficile infection. It's role is also being studied in other diseases where an association with gut dysbiosis has been found, such as in inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome. The role of FMT has also been studied in liver diseases such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), liver cirrhosis and primary sclerosing cholangitis. In this process, a diseased recipient is transferred fecal material containing the microflora of a healthy individual. It limits the colonization of pathogens, inducing colonization resistance, affects microbiota composition in the gut, as well as metabolism in the microbial pathogens. FMT helps alleviate gut dysbiosis and restores gut microbial diversity. Our aim is to evaluate the role of FMT on short term survival and improvement in scores of prognostic significance (CTP, MELD, MELDNa, mDF) in patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis.
Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) is defined as a functional renal failure in a patient with chronic liver disease, or liver cirrhosis.The splanchnic circulation undergoes severe vasodilation, as a result of portal hypertension, causing an underfilling of systemic arteries.This results in intense renal vasoconstriction and functional renal failure. The best treatment options for HRS I would be a drug which has renal vasodilator property and additional splanchnic vasoconstriction. An increase in circulating blood volume would be of additional benefit. Currently Terlipressin is considered superior to other drugs in the management of HRS I. Other drugs in use are Noradrenaline and Midodrine. Albumin is added to these drugs in order to expand plasma volume. Terlipressin, a Vasopressin analog, has agonistic activity at V1 receptors. Noradrenaline acts as an agonist at α-adrenergic receptors with mild β-agonistic activity. The two major drugs used in the management of HRS act at different receptors and have completely varied mechanisms of action. Thus, a combination therapy would improve the rate of response considerably. There have been multiple studies, measuring the efficacy, safety and dosing of both drugs, but none combining both Terlipressin and Noradrenaline. Hence our study would be a pioneer in formulating a new and possibly more efficacious treatment protocol for patients of Type I HRS, in whom the treatment options are otherwise very limited. If successful, this would open new horizons of therapy for Terlipressin refractory HRS, which, otherwise is an ominous condition.
