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: 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.
