There are about 973 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Iran, Islamic Republic of. 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 investigate life-style and psycho social factors of major cardiovascular events in patients with myocardial infarction in three different provinces of Iran and to design a risk assessment chart for major cardiovascular events in patients with MI.
This study is an open-label, active-controlled,non-inferiority trial comparing efficacy and safety of levetiracetam versus valproate in idiopathic generalized tonic-clonic epilepsy.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of amblyopia therapy on cases who will receive Interactive Binocular Treatment (IBiTTM) without patching compared with those who will receive standard patching of the dominant eye with placebo IBiTTM. In this randomized clinical trial, 40 unilateral amblyopic children (3 to 10 years old) will be studied. All unilateral functional amblyopic children with best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) worse than 0.30 LogMAR at least in one eye or a difference of two BCVA lines of Snellen between the two eyes will be included and randomly will divide into the case (n=19) and control (n=21) groups. Cases will play I-BiT™ games, while controls will have standard patch therapy and will play with placebo IBiTTM for one month. All subjects will be underwent comprehensive ophthalmic examinations at baseline and at one-month follow-up.
The purpose of this multicentre, randomized, double-blinded, single dose, two-way cross-over study, is to compare the pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) of two different doses of the biosimilar eptacog alfa (activated) with Novoseven in 48 patients, adult and children (>12 years), not bleeding, with hemophilia A or B with inhibitors. Patients will be randomized to receive either a single dose of eptacog alfa biosimilar 90 μg/kg or 270 μg/kg and one single dose of NovoSeven 90 μg/kg or 270 μg/kg, or vice versa, with doses separated by a washout period. All patients will be followed 12 months and will receive biosimilar eptacog alfa, on demand, for every bleeding episode that should occur - or - for prophylaxis, with the aim of monitoring of inhibiting antibody formation, lack of efficacy and collection of safety data.
This study is a community trial that aims to establish and evaluate an mHealth screening and promotional tool for improving eye health in Iran. Sampling frame is a region in Tehran province with around 1 million sub-urban and rural inhabitants. investigators have obtained the list of health centers and their underserved population from the health authorities. In this region, health services are delivered through rural health houses, urban health posts and overhead health centers (221 units in total). investigators choose 27 units using cluster random sampling method with a probability proportional to size strategy, then investigators randomly assign them into three arms (explained below). The interventions will be at community level with the community as the unit of randomization. Arm 1- Training of the Primary Health Care (PHC) workers + PHC workers will be empowered with the mHealth tool to monitor, screen and promote community members Arm 2- PHC system will be strengthened with health promotion and screening programmes (same content as the mHealth tool) and PHC workers will deliver eye health messages and screening tests by the conventional facilities. Arm 3: Control group: only observation and registering of routine care
The main aim of this study is to investigate the effect of melatonin on clinical outcome, quality of life, and cardiovascular function of the patients with heart failure, as well as its effect on their skeletal muscle mass and function.
To investigate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of using a donor lenticule created during small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) in patients with advance ectasia
The purpose of the study is to collect information on how the medicine Victoza® (liraglutide) works in people with Type 2 diabetes in Iran. Patients will get Victoza® as prescribed to them by their study doctor. The study will last for about 5 to 8 months. Patients will be asked to complete some questionnaires about their health and diabetes treatment. Patients will complete these during their normally scheduled visits with study doctor.
This study is a randomized controlled clinical trial to compare the pregnancy outcomes of mild and minimal stimulation in infertile women with polycystic ovarian syndrome. The study population consisted of all infertile women with polycystic ovary syndrome based on Rotterdam criteria who have not succeed to achieve fertility despite multiple treatments such as drug therapy, laparoscopic surgery, and the frequent failure of induction therapy using gonadotropins and are now candidate for in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intra cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in Reproductive Biomedicine Research Center, Royan institute, Tehran Iran.
The purpose of this prospective cohort study is to compare upper GI symptoms and endoscopy findings in Canada with Japan and Iran, and correlate this with the upper GI microbiome. The investigators plan to recruit 500 new patients referred for upper GI endoscopy in Canada (McMaster University) and 500 in Japan (Tohoku University Hospital) and 500 from Iran (Tehran University of Medical Sciences). Written consent will be obtained from all participants. Patients will complete three symptom questionnaires and a demographic one before endoscopy. Then saliva collection device will be applied for collecting saliva and microbiota from the oral cavity. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) will be performed thereafter and brushing of the esophagus, stomach, and the duodenum will be done using a sterile sheathed brush (one for each site) to sample collect gut microbiota and gastric biopsies will be done for assessing H.pylori status. In addition, a group of these patients will undergo measurement of nitrate reductase activity (NRA) in their oral cavity. This will be done on twenty erosive gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) patients, twenty non-erosive GERD patients, and twenty patients without any endoscopic or clinical GERD. This latter part of the study will be done at the Canadian and Iranian sites only. Bacterial community profiling of the 16S rRNA gene will be carried out using paired end reads of the V3 region. Triplicate amplifications will be pooled for 150 or 250 nt paired-end Illumina sequencing in the McMaster Genome Center. For specific substudies analysis of the mycome will also be carried out.
