There are about 37 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Iraq. 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 was conducted to assess the impact of two doses of coenzyme Q10 on seminal fluid parameters and antioxidant status in infertile men.
The study was conducted to assess the impact of coenzyme Q10 and selenium on seminal fluid parameters and antioxidant status in infertile men.
Periodontal diseases and caries are essentially initiated and progressed by accumulation of dental plaque. Thus, daily effective plaque control is valuable as a preventive measure and maintaining oral health. Mechanical plaque control is important but has limitations; therefore, an adjunctive chemical plaque control such as mouthwash is helpful. Various medicinal plant-derived galenicals might be used as safe and stable alternatives to synthetic mouthwashes. For example, a combination of Salvadora persica L. (Sp) root sticks and green tea (Gt) aqueous extract has been found to reduce plaque accumulation over 24 hours. Moreover, these extracts were reported to have anti-microbial activity against many oral bacteria. The objective of this study was to investigate the efficacy of the combination of Gt aqueous extract and Sp aqueous extract in reducing plaque buildup for 4 days duration.
Postpartum haemorrhage keeps to be the leading cause of maternal mortality in middle and low-income countries, including Iraq. Much advancement had been made in the field of treatment for postpartum haemorrhage but no much progress had been made in the field of prevention, where one of its main component is the administration of uterotonic, preferably oxytocin, immediately after birth of the baby. In many low- and middle income countries, the efficacy of oxytocin cannot be assured since access to sustained cold-chain is unavailable. Regarding the other uterotonics; ergometrine degrades when exposed to heat or light. Misoprostol degrades rapidly when exposed to Moisture. Innovation in the manufacture of carbetocin had meet the stability requirements for hot and humid climates. This study had been accomplished to evaluate the uterotonic effect of carbetocin compared with oxytocin for the prevention of postpartum haemorrhage in emergency caesarean delivery. Looking if carbetocin is superior to oxytocin in term of reduction in the need for additional uterotonic agents or the occurrence of PPH.
Tranexamic acid has been proposed and used for prevention and management of antepartum and postpartum hemorrhage.
Atherogenic Dyslipidemia (AD) is a risk-conferring lipid/lipoprotein profile that comprises a higher proportion of small LDL particles, reduced HDL-C, and increased triglycerides. It is characteristically seen in patients with obesity, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes mellitus and has emerged as an important marker for the increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk observed in these populations. Optimal cardiovascular risk reduction in patients exhibiting the lipid triad of AD requires integrated pharmacotherapy to normalize HDL-C, Triglyceride (TG) and LDL-C levels. Recent studies have focused on optimizing treatment for AD and compare the efficacy and tolerability of combined lipid-altering drug based therapies, however, an optimal pharmacologic approach has not yet been established. The present study was intended to evaluate the restorative efficacy of Extended Release Niacin (ER Niacin) and Fenofibrate as mono and combination therapies , as well as their safety and tolerability in females with obesity-induced AD.

Assessment is now seen as a learning experience. there is little literature on objective structured clinical examination role for formative assessment especially in developing world Many studies showed that formative-OSCE contributes positively to final summative examination performance though most studies address this point through the students' perception toward the formative-OSCE. Having research that evaluates the effect of formative-OSCE introduction on a subsequent summative-OSCE in randomised controlled design may be of benefit for institutions considering the establishment of their own formative-OSCEs particularly in low resource countries.
During the last decades, assisted reproductive technique has been transformed from a miracle to real and has become widely used for treatment human infertility. this was associated with increased the rate of twin pregnancies
Background: The exit strategy after ureteroscopy for stone treatment remains a topic for discussion. Current EAU guidelines on urolithiasis state that postoperative stenting is indicated in patients at increased risk of postoperative complications. Stenting is not considered necessary in all other cases, and after uncomplicated procedures. Objective: To analyse the postoperative ureteral stenting strategy in clinical practice looking at the indication, type of stents used and the duration of stenting after ureteroscopy for stone treatment. Furthermore, the investigators will examine in what setting the stents are being removed postoperatively. Study design: This study is a prospective, observational, international, multicentre registry study executed by uCARE. Study population: All patients >18 years with a ureter or renal stone who are planned for ureteroscopic treatment by semi-rigid and/or flexible ureteroscopy are eligible for this study.
