There are about 180 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Jordan. 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.
Efficacy of Intracavernous injection of Wharton jelly Mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in diabetic patients.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common types of cancer worldwide in general and in Jordan in specific. The studies that investigate the role of Probiotics supplementation in improving the inflammatory response, gastrointestinal toxicity and life quality of patients with colorectal cancer during radiotherapy are limited. So, this study aimed to study the effect of probiotics on the response of inflammatory markers, gastrointestinal toxicity, and quality of life in patients with colorectal cancer during radiation therapy. An interventional double-blind randomized clinical trial (RCT) design will be used in this study. Forty patients will be recruited and randomly assigned to the placebo group (n=20) to receive 3 times a day placebo capsules; and probiotics group (n=20), to receive 3 times a day probiotic supplement. The demographic data, anthropometric measurements, Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire and blood samples will be collected at baseline and at end of radiation therapy. Interleukin-6, interleukin-1,interleukin-10 IL-10, C-reactive protein, tumor necrosis factor alpha and complete blood count (CBC) will be measured. The results will approve or disapprove the beneficial effect of using probiotics as adjuvant therapy for CRC patient and other types of cancer to reduce the side effects of radiotherapy and raise body weight as well as improving their quality of life.
Vital pulp therapy (VPT) is a general term for multiple procedures (indirect pulp cap, direct pulp cap and pulpotomy) all directed toward preserving pulp vitality and enable complete root development in immature teeth. The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical, radiographic and histologic (if any teeth later are doomed for extraction for orthodontic or other reasons) success rate of VPT on treating cariously exposed permanent teeth with developmental defects of enamel. This will be a a prospective case series study including children between 6-16 years old having tooth with enamel hypomineralization defect with deep caries, restorable teeth , and no signs of infection. The teeth will be followed up both clinically and radiographically for 1 year after treatment. It is expected that the teeth will maintain vitality with resolution of symptoms (if present) and completion of root development in immature teeth after vital pulp therapy.
Endodontic failures are not uncommonly encountered despite improvements in routine root canal therapy. Endodontic microsurgery is one way to manage such failure. The placement of a retrograde filling material is considered the most important prognostic factor in endodontic microsurgery. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical and radiographic outcome of a fast set bioceramic root end filling material in human teeth.
Given the heightened risk of NCDs and mental health issues, it is critical for Jordanians and Syrian refugees to have access to prevention based health services. To address this need, the following project seeks to examine the capacity of Primary Care Health Centers to provide preventive services to empower patients to manage NCDs and potential mental health issues for those who are experiencing distress. The primary research question in this evaluation study is: Does prevention-based health and mental health services in primary health clinics improve health status of Jordanians and Syrian refugees? This research proposal will consist of three study conditions examining: - Condition 1: an existing NCD preventive intervention consisting of 24 sessions, which are 45 minutes covering diabetes, hypertension, obesity, reproductive health, cardiovascular diseases, allergies and smoking; - Condition 2: The existing NCD preventive intervention with 4 added mental health awareness sessions covering traumatic stress reactions, individual strategies for coping with stress and traumatic events and collective strategies for coping with stress and trauma; - Condition 3: Treatment as usual A group randomized study will be conducted in three clinics with patients of the respective clinics. The clinics will be identified prior to the study based on similar demographics, service utilization and staff capacity. Once the three clinics are identified they will be selected to one of the three study conditions. This research will be conducted in collaboration with the University of Illinois (UIUC), AmeriCares, and the Royal Health Awareness Society (RHAS) of Jordan. AmeriCares will work as the operational humanitarian organization collaborating with and providing support to RHAS and UIUC. RHAS's healthy community clinic is a community-based health project launched in 2011 conducted with the Ministry of Health (MOH). The project aims to build the capacity of participating Health Centers to provide better preventative services to empower patients to manage their diseases and reduce future complications. The Healthy Community Clinic, established within existing MOH facilities, provides medical practitioners with the training and resources necessary to implement management and prevention-based care to patients in underserved communities.
a randomized controlled single-blinded study. the hypothesis of this clinical trial is that disjunctive use of diode laser improve the clinical parameters of periodontists , and there are significant difference between the conventional treatment and diode laser as an adjunct
Primary Objective: Assess effectiveness of insulin glargine (U300) in achieving glycemic goal measured by hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c). Secondary Objectives: - Assess effectiveness in achieving glycemic goal measured by HbA1c; - Assess effectiveness on change in HbA1c, fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and self-monitored plasma glucose (SMPG) ; - Assess requirement for intensification of therapy by additional antidiabetics. - Assess incidence of hypoglycemia; - Assess other safety endpoints: adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs); - Assess change in body weight.
This study aims to examine the short term and long term safety outcomes of the treatment of PD patients with umbilical cord derived stem cells as indicated by the presence of adverse events that are confirmed to be related to the therapy.
The purpose of this multicenter randomized study is to compare efficacy and safety of dasatinib 50 mg once daily and dasatinib 100 mg once daily in patients with early chronic phase (CP) chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)
