There are about 11866 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Italy. 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.
International, Multicentre, Parallel-group, Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Phase III Study Evaluating the effect of Dapagliflozin on Exercise Capacity in Heart Failure Patients with Preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common diseases resulting in large burdens on society. Among the emerging treatments, Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC) intra-articular injections are a promising regenerative approach. However, they offer only a temporary benefit since they target synovial and chondral tissues but fail to address the osteochondral interface, which plays a key role in the onset and progression of joint degeneration. This project will investigate the efficacy of combined BMC injections, targeting both intra-articular tissues and subchondral bone, to treat OA in a Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT).
Fast-track total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a well-established concept including optimized logistics and evidence-based treatment, focusing on minimizing surgical stress and improved post-operative recovery. The aim of this protocol is to compare the standard care and fast track total hip arthroplasties in terms of functional and subjective outcomes, hospital staying, number of transfusions and analgesic consumption.
This study will compare two different needles for interfascial blocks. All participants will execute the block on simulator with both needles. The participants will be randomized in two groups to choose the starting needle.
This is a non-randomized, open label, phase I/II, dose-escalation study, involving a single injection of Temferon, an investigational advanced therapy consisting of autologous CD34+-enriched hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells exposed to transduction with a lentiviral vector driving myeloid-specific interferon-ɑ2 expression, which will be administered to up to 9 patients affected by multiple myeloma in early relapse after intensive front line treatment.
Aim of this study is to evaluate whether treating HCC recurrences in resected elderly patients is advantageous or not.
Prospective validation of the ultrasound-assessed internal jugular vein distensibility (JVD) ratio to identify patients with systolic chronic heart failure and right atrial pressure (RAP) of 7 or less mmHg measured by the right heart catheterization. In a calibration cohort, a threshold ratio will be identified, above which the RAP is normal with the highest accuracy. This diagnostic tool with a defined threshold of the JVD ratio will be assessed in a second prospective validation cohort.
Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) plays a key role in endothelial function and may be a link for the known interaction of periodontitis and coronary heart disease (CHD). The investigators compared the impact of gingival health, periodontitis (CP), CHD or of both diseases (CP+CHD) on saliva and serum ADMA levels.
Vitamin D has been considered to possess anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activity which may be a link for the known interaction of periodontitis (CP) and coronary heart disease (CHD). This study investigated the association between serum vitamin D levels and periodontitis in patients with CP and with CHD. Furthermore, the objective was to determine if periodontitis and CHD had an impact on serum vitamin D levels.
BMI is a simple and widely recorded variable that may capture obesity or cachexia in cancer patients. How BMI is associated to health-related quality of life (HR-QoL) in such patients is poorly investigated. High BMI may be associated to obesity, an increased burden of comorbidity, reduced physical activity and, in some settings, to more aggressive oncological disease. On the other hand, low BMI may reflect enhanced weight loss, cachectic syndrome, higher tumor burden and adverse prognostic features which all deteriorate quality of life. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the association of BMI and HR-QoL as measured by the EORTC-QLQ-C30 questionnaire in several cancer settings (such as localized vs metastatic or distinct primary tumors).
