NCT ID: NCT03526770 Not yet recruiting - Oral Hygiene Clinical Trials

Comparison of 5 Buffering Agents on Changes in Salivary pH in Individuals Previously Exposed to a Test Carbonated Drink

Start date: May 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The diurnal variation in the flow of saliva and hence the composition of saliva is an established fact. Consumption of acidic and sweetened food and beverage is known to reduce the salivary pH and some of them reduce it to critical pH levels and result in structural damage to the hard tissues of the tooth. The purpose of this study is to ascertain the effect of the select commercially available test carbonated drink containing sugar on the salivary pH and assess the buffering capacity of the saliva with or without various intervention measures following the exposure to the test carbonated drink at different time intervals.

NCT ID: NCT03520595 Completed - Clinical trials for Crown Lengthening Procedure With Ostectomy

Analgesic Efficacy of Arnica Montana in Comparison With Diclofenac Sodium Following a Periodontal Surgical Procedure

Start date: December 1, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Introduction: Homeopathy is a deep healing, comprehensive and distinct system originally developed by Samuel Hahnemann about 200 years ago. Small doses of specially prepared ("potentized") remedies which set the body's systems back in order and stimulate a body's own energies toward a natural healing process. It is entirely distinct in both theory and in practice from other healing systems from ordinary or main-stream ("allopathic") medicine, but also from acupuncture, naturopathy, chiropractics, etc., although some homeopathy often finds its way into these other fields of practice.Homeopathy is based on the concept "similia similibus curentur" which means symptoms, caused by the original substance in healthy subjects, can be reversed by the homeopathic remedy in patients having similar symptoms.Homeopathy has the advantages such as it is inexpensive (the only expense is the homeopath's time and training - the remedies themselves cost practically nothing), non-toxic (although "side affects" which reflect the body's own healing processes may occur - such as fever, discharge, rash, etc.) and non-intrusive (the remedies are carried on tiny sugar granules which are dissolved in water or in the mouth, or swallowed).Arnica is one of the most popular medications in homeopathy medicine. This remedy can be extracted from several plant species belonging to the Aesteraceae family including Arnica montana, Arnica fulgens, Arnica cordifolia, Arnica chamissonis and Arnica sororia, and it is widely sold as tincture, ointment, cream, gel, and tablet. It has been used for the treatment of numerous pathological conditions, including pain, swelling and stiffness associated with trauma, contusions, sprains, myocarditis, angina pectoris, cardiac insufficiency, arteriosclerosis, postoperative clinical conditions, and for symptomatic relief in osteoarthritis.Conventional NSAIDs work by inhibiting cyclooxygenase (COX) and prostaglandin synthesis as well as by other less understood mechanisms. Onset of analgesia occurs rapidly with all NSAIDs, usually within one hour.Diclofenac is one of potent, standard and most unique NSAID for the therapy of postoperative pain. Diclofenac inhibits the lipoxygenase pathways, which reduces the formation of the leukotrienes (also pro-inflammatory autacoids) and also inhibit phospholipase A2. These actions explain the high potency of diclofenac.NSAIDs cause a variety of side effects including nausea, diarrhea, constipation, dizziness, headache, confusion, edema, rash, and pruritis. They can also cause more serious toxicities such as gastrointestinal (GI) ulceration/bleeding, hematologic disturbances, bronchospasm, angioedema, renal dysfunction, and hepatotoxicity. Many of these side effects are due to NSAID inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis other than at the desired site of action.Arnica being clinical efficient and high tolerable makes it a potential therapeutic alternative target to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.In this study investigator will compare and evaluate the efficacy of Arnica as a substitute for analgesics such as Diclofenac Sodium, through which side effects of NSAIDS can be avoided and get the same analgesia effect through Arnica without any of the undesirable effects for minor surgical procedures. AIM: To compare and evaluate the analgesic effect of Arnica Montana with Diclofenac sodium after crown lengthening procedure with ostectomy. Objectives: To assess the analgesic effect on crown lengthening procedure with ostectomy patients of Arnica Montana and Diclofenac Sodium.

Start date: April 9, 2018
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This is a Phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center, international study assessing the efficacy and safety of durvalumab given concurrently with platinum-based CRT (durvalumab + standard of care [SoC] CRT) in patients with locally advanced, unresectable NSCLC (Stage III).

NCT ID: NCT03519165 Recruiting - Ovarian Cancer Clinical Trials

Restrictive or Individualized Goal-Directed Fluid Replacement Strategy in Ovarian Cancer Cytoreductive Surgery

Start date: June 2016
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This is a single center prospective randomized controlled study comparing the postoperative outcome after cytoreductive surgery in ovarian cancer patient after using restrictive or individualized goal-directed fluid replacement strategy (GDT). Aim of this study will be to test the hypothesis that intra-operative SVV-guided fluid optimization during ovarian cancer cytoreductive surgery: 1. reduces the postoperative length of hospital stay, 2. cost-effective, 3. GDT will be more beneficial in cases of PDS compared to IDS or cytoreductive procedures of shorter duration. 4. GDT improves intraoperative tissue perfusion/ oxygenation and improves immediate postoperative morbidity. Intra-operatively fluid of choice in both groups will be lactate-free crystalloid at 1.0 ml/kg/h for maintenance and gelofusine for fluid bolus of 3ml/kg over 5 minutes. In group C intraoperative fluid therapy will include maintenance fluid and replacement of the surgical loss. Aim will be to maintain MAP > 65 mmHg, CVP 8-12 cm H2O and urine output > 0.5 ml/kg/h. In group G intraoperative fluid therapy will be targeted to SVV <13%, SVI > 35ml/m2/ beat, SVRI more than equal to 1900 dynes-sec/cm-5/m2 in addition to clinical parameters like MAP, CVP and urine output. Primary outcome will be length of hospital stay (LOS). Secondary outcomes will be cost of surgical treatment episode (admission till fit to discharge), postoperative morbidity survey (POMS) and 30 day morbidity and mortality.

NCT ID: NCT03519152 Completed - Clinical trials for Chronic Periodontitis

To Compare Efficacy of Low Dose Diclofenac (25mg) in Management of Postoperative Pain After Periodontal Flap Surgery

Start date: March 20, 2016
Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

Pain after periodontal surgical procedures is a common manifestation. The perception of pain is highly subjective and varies substantially among individuals. Many factors affect pain perception, such as the nature, duration, and extent of the surgery and psychological aspects (e.g., stress and anxiety). Pain after periodontal surgery is an example of acute dental pain of mild to moderate severity. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have a significant advantage in the control of pain after periodontal or oral surgical procedures. Diclofenac is a powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic drug that is well suited for local use in the oral cavity. Diclofenac competes with arachidonic acid in a dose dependent manner for binding with platelet COX. This results in decreased production of PG and thus reduces inflammation, swelling and pain. As Diclofenac associated with many adverse effects, like gastric irritability, nausea, headache, dizziness. Undesirable effects may be minimized by using the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration necessary to control symptoms. As many of clinical trials have suggested Diclofeanc 50 mg alleviates the postoperative pain. So main aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of low dose Diclofenac(25mg) in reducing the post operative pain after periodontal flap surgeries. Thus comparing the effects of low dose Diclofenac and Diclofenac 50mg for reducing post-operative pain.

NCT ID: NCT03518853 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Adenocarcinoma of Prostate

Short Course Radiotherapy for Localized Prostate Cancer

Start date: December 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Hypofractionated external beam radiotherapy has been clinically used for localized prostate cancer in view of the low estimated alpha/beta ratio of prostate cancer cells. Moderate fraction sizes of <4Gy per fraction has been investigated in several phase II/III studies and has been found to be well tolerated with comparable biochemical control in comparison with standard fractionated dose-escalated regimens. Fraction sizes of > 4 Gy has also been investigated in single center studies. However, its toxicity and disease control outcomes is less well known. In this Phase I/II single arm study the investigators aim to treat non-metastatic prostate cancer with stageT1-T4N0M0 and Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) <60 ng/ml to a regimen of 35Gy in 5 fractions delivered once a week with a view to determine acute toxicity, biochemical control with PSA and late toxicity.

NCT ID: NCT03512366 Recruiting - Local Anaesthesia Clinical Trials

Comparison Between Desarda and Lichtenstein's Technique for Inguinal Hernia Repair Under Local Anaesthesia

Start date: December 9, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Inguinal hernia repair is done by two methods. The conventional method uses a prosthetic mesh for strengthening the defect but has been associated with complications. Another new method uses a strip of the external oblique aponeurosis to do the same.There is a necessity to conduct studies comparing the two methods of hernia repair under local anaesthesia in terms of feasibility, economic benefits, faster ambulation with less complications. The purpose of the study is to find a method that will lead to faster disposal of patients and early return to activities, thereby reducing the waiting list of patients that compromises their financial and social spheres and overwhelms the welfare system.
