There are about 3163 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.
Fifty six patients of CRU attending the urticaria clinic in the department of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh will be recruited in the study calculated by using equivalence analysis assuming power of 90%, significance level of 5% and standard deviation of 1 and adjusting 5% of expected drop-outs after taking written informed consent. This study is undertaken with an intention to treat the patients of chronic refractory urticaria completely. Patients will be randomized into two groups A and B using computer generated random number tables, group A will receive Cyclosporine and group B will receive Azathioprine; wherein, 28 random single and double-digit numbers from 1-56 will be selected before recruitment, and patients coming on these numbers will be randomized in a particular group. Random number generation, recruitment and randomization, were all done by the same investigator..
The aim of this study is to determine the effect of a new design of FAB type on compliance and treatment outcomes of idiopathic clubfeet treated by the Ponseti method. Very little literature exists on the effect of brace type or the difference between reported and actual at-home compliance, which is integral to the success of treatment with the Ponseti method. Eighty children less than 1 year of age will be enrolled in the study into two arms, using block randomization. These two groups will use two different designs of foot abduction brace (FAB). Outcomes will be measured by number of recurrences per group (using recasting and/or surgical procedures and Pirani score as indicators), time of recurrences (in months), compliance with brace wear using sensors and comparing the data with brace wear reported by parents, and parent satisfaction with FAB (measured on a modified Orthotics and Prosthetics User Sur vey). Enrollment will be on a rolling basis; subjects will be enrolled at their last cast application and followed for approximately 6 months. Recurrences, time of recurrence, parent satisfaction, and reported vs. actual compliance will be analyzed.
The Purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of active ( video game) and passive (video) distraction techniques on reducing fear and anxiety and improving oral health knowledge of children undergoing extraction in the dental operatory
POC Medical Systems has developed a Point of Care system for the screening of breast cancer in the general population. Via a proprietary algorithm, the MammoAlert™ is expected to determine breast cancer's risk level for a subject by identifying the presence in plasma of known biomarkers. The present study aims to determine the Sensitivity and Specificity of the test in plasma samples of subjects of whom the status vis-à-vis breast cancer is known.
Through this study, the investigators shall compare the effectiveness of atenolol with propranolol in the treatment of IH. In addition, the investigators shall try to elucidate the mechanism of action of beta blockers by assessing their action on triggers such as hypoxia. The study design will be a parallel group comparative study wherein patients of IH will be randomized into two groups. One group will receive propranolol and the other atenolol for a maximum period of 9 months. The patients will then be followed up regularly for regression of the IH based on Physician global assessment, hemangioma activity score(HAS), serial photography and lesional ultrasonography. Any side effects encountered during the treatment period will also be noted. Also serial measurements of hypoxia inducible factor 1 alpha(HIF-1α) will be made to ascertain the mechanism of action of the drugs.
This study is undertaken to compare the effects of treatment with commonly used OCP containing ethinylestradiol-cyproterone acetate and metformin in women with PCOS. Special attention will be paid to changes in ovarian stromal blood flow by using Color Doppler and they will be correlated with changes in hormonal parameters post-treatment.
The primary objective of the study will be to compare intraoperative post TOF repair RVOT gradient under two different anaesthetic depths. Secondary objectives will be to follow up change in RVOT gradient till 1 month post-operatively, observe extubation time, inotropes used post-operatively by vasoactive- inotropic score (VIS), RV functions at discharge from ICU and at 1 month follow- up
Following stroke, patients loses functions of the motor, sensory and higher brain cognitive faculties to various degrees which lead to diminished balance. It has been documented that hemiplegic or hemiparetic stroke patients presented with more posture sway, asymmetric weight distribution, impaired weight-shifting ability and decreased stability capability. There are many balance exercises and strategies; to improve balance in elderly age group population, to prevent fall prevention. But we have very few evidences of giving manual perturbation balance training in stroke patients to improve speed, balance and function. Therefore this study is taken up to examine whether the manual perturbation balance training is more effective in improving speed, balance and function in stroke patients.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the periodontal parameters in terms of periodontal healing by periodontal surgical therapy with simultaneous or delayed endodontic therapy in management of concurrent endodontic -periodontal lesion without communication
