NCT ID: NCT03656965 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Drug Use for Unapproved Schedule

EBV Positive Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Treated With Concurrent Chemo-radiotherapy With or Without Anti-Viral Drug

Start date: May 1, 2018
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

PCR-DNA of EBV test is a good prognostic indicator for survival after treatment (report: Prognostic Impact of Plasma, Epstein-Barr Virus DNA in Patients with Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Treated using Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy. The chances of the local recurrence or metastasis are higher in the patients at same stage with positive PCR-DNA of EBV in Nasopharyngeal carcinoma after same treatment.(ref.) Antiviral drugs have been used to inhibit EBV replication and target viral DNA polymerase are Foscarnet and phosphonoacetic acid both interact directly with the pyrophosphate-binding site of the enzyme, where Acyclovir as antiviral drug act at two levels: as competitive alternative substrates, competing with GTP on the substrate-binding site, and as DNA chain terminators, by incorporating into the growing DNA chain and blocking its elongation due to their acyclic structure.

NCT ID: NCT03618147 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Primary Immune Deficiency Disorder

Primary Immunodeficiency in Kuwait

Start date: July 16, 2018
Phase:
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

- Background/Rationale: Epidemiological data about Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders (PIDD) in Kuwait is needed to better understand peculiarities and to compare them with other regions and ethnicity. - Study hypothesis: PIDD is relatively common in Kuwait compared to populations from different geographic areas. The distribution of PIDD in Kuwait is different from other geographic areas with more severe forms being more frequent. - Brief inclusion and exclusion criteria of study participants: PIDD patients presented at different clinics/hospital in Kuwait. Patients with secondary immunodeficiencies (drug induced, virus induced, and immunodeficiency associated with metabolic disorders... ect), will be excluded - Estimated sample size of the study: All patients who were registered in KNPIDR since 2004 will be included in the study along with the new patients who will be recruited during the study period. - Primary objectives: - Determine the prevalence and frequency of different PIDD in Kuwait - Identify clinical presentation patterns for PIDD in Kuwait - Identify natural history of PIDD in Kuwait - Help to asses epidemiology of PIDD in Kuwait - Determine particularities about PIDD affecting the population in Kuwait - Determine the health impact of PIDD in Kuwait - Development of strategies to improve the care and the quality of life of patients with PIDD

NCT ID: NCT03532737 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Locally Advanced Head and Neck Cancer

Concomitant Immune Check Point Inhibitor With Radiochemotherapy in Head And Neck Cancer

Start date: October 1, 2018
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

Background: Locally advanced head and neck cancer (HNC) is a challenge as, in spite of initial good control with chemoradiation, the majority of patients fails systemically. In the last 2 years, immune check points inhibitors (mainly Programmed Death (PD)-1 inhibitors) were approved for metastatic/recurrent HNC. The favorable toxicity profile and durable responses was the main benefit of these drugs along the scope of cancers they were approved for. Aim of the study and methods: This will be a phase II non-randomized trial to define safety and efficacy of combining the PD-1 inhibitor pembrolizumab given concomitantly with the usual standard of care chemoradiation/bioradiation for locally advanced non-nasopharyngeal HNC. Primary end point will be assessment of toxicity and tolerability while the secondary end points will be response rates (RR) and progression free survival (PFS)

NCT ID: NCT03396263 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Dietary Modification

Online vs. Face-to-face Nutritional Advice in Kuwait (EatWellQ8)

EatWellQ8
Start date: December 24, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Dietary assessment is via the validated Food4Me FFQ (with an updated user interface that has been designed for better usability) and dietary feedback is derived according to adherence to an 11-item modified US Alternative Healthy Eating Index (m-AHEI).

NCT ID: NCT03387722 Recruiting - Severe Asthma Clinical Trials

Assessment of Treatment Patterns of Severe Asthmatic Patients Across the Gulf Region - SevEos Study

SevEos
Start date: December 31, 2017
Phase:
Study type: Observational

SevEos is a cross-sectional, multi-center, non-interventional study aimed to describe the treatment patterns in 250 severe asthma patients across the Gulf region. In addition, the study will determine the current level of asthma control and quality of life in these patients; describe the exacerbation patterns; and determine the current levels of blood eosinophils for the enrolled patients.

NCT ID: NCT03358394 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1

Mindfulness-based Arabic Guided Self-help for Parents of Children With Type 1 Diabetes

Start date: October 26, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Kuwait ranks as the third country worldwide for the incidence of type 1 diabetes (T1D) with an incidence of 37.10 per 100,000 children. A systematic review revealed that anxiety and depression are common in parents of children with T1D . Despite the high incidence rate, only one study to date has examined the psychological impact of diabetes on parents of children with T1D in Kuwait. It was found that 50.8% of parents had elevated levels of anxiety and 46.7% had elevated levels of depression. Recent research shows that mindfulness is associated with a range of positive outcomes as well as decreased psychological and emotional distress. The earlier A doctor of philosophy (PhD) study found that mindfulness explained large amount of variance in anxiety and depression in a sample of parents of children with T1D. Mindfulness is defined as "paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally". The model of mindful parenting can be taught and provided as an intervention to improve psychological outcomes in parents of children with long term health conditions. In line with this idea, one study examined the effectiveness of a mindfulness-based intervention on perceived stress and psychological anxiety among parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in Jordan. The results indicated a significant decrease in stress and psychological distress in the intervention group compared to the comparison group. In the present pilot study, we will extend this work by evaluating a guided self-help a mindfulness intervention that aims to increase mindfulness and reduce psychological distress in parents of children with T1D in Kuwait.
