There are about 347 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Lebanon. 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.
Aim: The aim of this study to Assess the healing process of the immediate implant loading with two different provisional techniques (direct and indirect). Materials and methods: 20 implant in the aesthetic zone either in the incisor or in the canine area and excluding the lateral location and then immediate loading is achieved for the 20 implants (10 for direct and 10 for indirect method) Clinical Aspect :color change , healing and bone resorption Esthetic assessment and patient acceptance will be assessed using specific tools. Lab aspect: surface roughness and Marginal fit will be measured to have clue vision.
This is a multicenter, multinational, double-blind, 1:1 randomized, parallel-group, equivalence Phase 3 study to compare the efficacy and safety of MB02 plus chemotherapy (carboplatin and paclitaxel) versus Avastin® plus chemotherapy (carboplatin and paclitaxel) in subjects with Stage IIIB/IV non-squamous NSCLC
This proof-of-mechanism study is being performed to investigate the safety, tolerability, efficacy, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of multiple oral doses of bitopertin in adults with NTD beta-thalassemia. Participants will undergo a 6-week dose-escalation period followed by 10 weeks of treatment at the attained target dose. Thereafter, participants will be observed during a no-treatment follow-up period of 6 weeks.
Background: Lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow, is a common musculoskeletal disorder that causes pain and functional limitation. Although different nonsurgical conservative therapies such as bracing, physical therapy, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and corticosteroid injections in addition to surgical approaches have been used, yet there is no standard treatment for lateral epicondylitis. Objectives: The primary objective of this study is to assess the effectiveness of nerve stimulator guided radial nerve block for treatment of lateral epicondylitis. The primary outcome measure is pain measured through the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) at 1 and 2 weeks. Methods: This is a prospective randomized, double blind clinical trial that will be conducted between September 2017 and March 2018. Patients will be randomly allocated into two groups. Group I will receive radial nerve block guided by a nerve stimulator. Group II patients will receive placebo through radial nerve block. Patients will be followed up for 2 weeks.
Myofascial pain is an important cause of neck pain or neck and shoulder pain. Neck shoulder pain is a common socioeconomic problem that negatively affects the quality of life. Different treatment strategies with limited effectiveness or application have been implemented. However, medication remains a widely used approach. The levator scapulae is one of the muscles involved in myofascial pain leading to levator scapulae syndrome. The muscle limits the rotation of the neck. It is innervated by branches of the third and fourth cervical nerves through the cervical plexus. Hence, performing superficial cervical plexus block may have some potential effect in reducing myofascial pain.
Background: It was long believed that newborns could not experience pain. As it is now documented that newborns have all the necessary systems to perceive pain, pain management can no longer be ignored. Pharmacologic agents are not recommended in neonates for pain relief in minor procedures and still there is debate regarding the efficacy of oral glucose, in different strengths, on alleviation of pain among neonates. Aim: The objective of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety oral administration of glucose, in different concentrations, on pain relief in full term neonates undergoing heel prick test. Methods: The investigators will conduct a prospective, randomized, double blind placebo controlled trial to investigate the effect of glucose solution on alleviating the pain of heel prick test in around 360 healthy full term newborns who will be randomly allocated to one of three groups (around 120 neonates in each group): First group will receive 5% glucose, second group will receive 30% glucose and third group will receive sterile water as a placebo, 2 minutes prior to the procedure. Specially trained nurses will take turns to carry out blood sampling. Neonatal pain will be assessed by the Neonatal Infant Pain (NIPS) as well as by duration of crying, changes in heart rate, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation.
Paravertebral Block (PVB) was shown to be a successful and useful technique of anesthesia and analgesia. Its effect was evident in thoracic and abdominal surgeries. In the setting of appendectomy, somatic PVB has been used for pediatric patients. It was shown to decrease opioid consumption and provide prolonged pain relief. Hence, it would be beneficial to examine the analgesic effect of PVB on appendectomy in adult patients.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of the intradermal injection of botulinum toxin in lower face rejuvenation. The study will also compare this intervention with the "Nefertiti Lift" intramuscular injection technique.
The botulinum toxin was first identified in the late 19th century(1). With its 40 different subtype this toxin is produced mainly by the gram positive anaerobic bacteria Clostridium Botulinum(2). This neurotoxin has great affinity to the neuro muscular junction preventing neurotransmitter release in the synaptic space of acetylcholine(3). The first clinical use was reported by Alan Scott in 1980(4). The most commonly used subtype is toxin A commercially found as BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA, Allergan, approved by FDA in 1989), Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA, Medicis, approved by FDA in 2009) and Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA, Merz, approved by FDA in 2010). As for other commercial toxins botulinum neurotoxin serotype B product (MYOBLOC™). Neurotoxin Blast generally 12-15 weeks compared to 3-6 month for neurotoxin A. the FDA approved its use for strabismus in 1989(5), blepharospasm and hemifacial spasm in 1990(6,7), cervical dystonia in 2000(8), glabella in 2000, hyperhidrosis in 2004(9), chronic migrane and detrusor overactiviy in 2014. Other off-label uses have emerged like lanyngeal dysponia, chronic pain etc… (10). Multiple studies with a reduced number of patients have aimed to quantify the effect of botulinum toxin on brow higth. Some studies used injections only to the lateral part of the orbicularis,while others added a corrugator injection. We aimed in this study to compare a known techniques in brow lifting and associanting that with 2 frontalis injection techniques. The main objective is to evaluate the shape of the brow and the elevation in multiple brow landmarks before and after the injection and to see if the frontalis botulinum bloc causes brow ptosis
This is a prospective comparative randomized controlled study investigating the effect of Myo-Inositol-based co-treatment on oocyte quality measures in women with PCOS.
