There are about 894 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Lithuania. 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.
The objectives of this study are to demonstrate the equivalence of Xlucane to Lucentis® in treatment of subjects with wet (ie, neovascular) age-related macular degeneration (wAMD).
Phase II, single-arm study to assess the safety and efficacy of osimertinib (80 mg, orally, once daily) as first-line therapy in patients with EGFR mutation-positive, locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who have not previously treated with an epidermal growth factor tyrosine kinase inhibitor agent.
The study is designed and performed as a prospective randomized controlled single-center study. Patients who underwent rectal resection with preventive ileostomy due to rectal cancer will be included. The study investigates the effect of reversing a temporary ileostomy after 30 vs 90 days.
The aim of this study is to compare three different modalities for treatment of symptomatic 2 ° to 3 ° haemorrhoids: open haemorrhoidectomy, intrahaemorrhoidal laser procedure and haemorrhoidal pedicle ligation. To assess early outcomes (after one week and one month) of the procedures: pain, bleeding, wound healing, return to work and quality of life; To assess late outcomes (after one year) of the procedures: late functional results (continence) and recurrence of symptoms and haemorrhoids. Study design This is a multi-center, double-blind, prospective RCT comparing three different modalities for treatment of symptomatic 2 ° to 3 ° haemorrhoids: open haemorrhoidectomy, intrahaemorrhoidal laser coagulation and haemorrhoidal artery ligation.
The purpose of this double blind randomized study is the evaluation of the safety and efficacy of the Moderato System. The Moderato implantable pulse generator is indicated for patients who have hypertension and also require a dual chamber pacemaker in order to reduce their blood pressure. In this amended CS-03 protocol Version 3.0, the study will evaluate the safety and efficacy in a randomized, double-blind study following active treatment vs. a control patient population for a period of 3 month for efficacy and 12 months for safety (In comparison to 6 months for patients under protocol CS-03 Ver 1.1, NCT02837445). The device will be considered to have a clinical effectiveness with regard to its anti-hypertension function if there is a statistically significant and clinically meaningful reduction in mean 24-hour ambulatory systolic blood pressure in the treatment group compared to the control group. The primary efficacy endpoint will be evaluated 3 months after randomization. The Primary safety analysis will compare the treatment and the control after 12 months of treatment.
The purpose of the study is to assess the efficacy and safety of 4 doses of cenerimod versus placebo in adult subjects with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
Lichtenstein herniorrhaphy still remains one of the most often performed inguinal hernia repair techniques. It is frequently associated with acute postoperative and chronic pain. Due to insufficient effect of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, they are often overdosed. However opioids have many side effects. Interventional treatment, such as transversus abdominis plain (TAP) block requires an additional intervention and has relatively short effect, also could not be applied in outpatient conditions. The hypoalgesic effect of transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation (TENS) is well known for many years, but effectiveness during postoperative period is still controversial and maybe therefore didn't come to daily practice. However it could be a promising part of multi-modal pain treatment for hernia patients. This study analyse the hypoalgesic effect of TENS and its impact on hernia specific quality of life (QoL) after Lichtenstein hernia repair. Aim#1 To determine whether use of TENS is effective for acute postoperative pain relief. Aim#2 To determine whether use of TENS have impact on hernia specific QoL in early and late postoperative period. Aim#3 To identify factors associated with effectiveness/ineffectiveness of TENS procedures. Aim#4 To determine whether a psychological condition (depression, anxiety and pain catastrophisation) is somehow associated with TENS effectiveness.
Quantitative Flow Ratio (QFR) is a novel method for evaluating the functional significance of coronary stenosis. QFR is estimated based on two angiographic projections. Studies have shown a good correlation with the present wire-based standard approach Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) for assessment of intermediate coronary stenosis. The purpose of the FAVOR III Europe Japan study is to investigate if a QFR-based diagnostic strategy will results in non-inferior clinical outcome after 12 months compared to a standard pressure-wire guided strategy in evaluation of patients with chest pain (stable angina pectoris) and intermediate coronary stenosis.
The TricValve® Transcatheter Bicaval Valves System is indicated for relief of tricuspid insufficiency in patients with symptomatic heart disease who are judged by a heart team, including a cardiac surgeon, to be at extreme risk or inoperable for open surgical therapy.
Background: Deep caries is the most frequent reason for performing root canal treatments. Minimally invasive methods for the treatment of deep carious lesions might therefore be relevant to avoid pulp exposures and consequently to prevent root canal treatments. A 2 step carious removal approach has shown to avoid exposures. But we do not know whether a selective removal of carious tissue in well-defined deep caries lesions involving the pulpal quarter of the dentin can be successfully completed in 1 step. Objectives: To investigate partial (selective) excavation by 1 vs 2 step in the treatment of deep caries in permanent teeth. Design: RCT multinational superiority study with 2 parallel groups and blinded outcome assessment. The allocation sequence for partial (selective) carious removal vs 2 step stepwise carious removal (1:1) will be centralized and computer-generated, stratified for age and centre and concealed for the investigators. Inclusion criteria: children (≥9 years) and adults with primary well-defined deep caries in a permanent tooth. The lesion should reach the pulpal ¼ of the dentin with presence of a radiodense zone on a bitewing. Exclusion criteria: spontaneous and prolonged pain within the last 6 months; pain causing disturbed night sleep; negative pulp test; apical radiolucency; restoration in close contact with pulp; the patient has communication problems; no written informed consent. Experimental intervention: 1-step selective carious removal to soft or firm dentine at central site , and peripheral non selective carious removal to hard dentin followed by a permanent resin restoration. Control intervention: Stepwise excavation (2- step, involving first step which is identical to the experimental intervention but a base material and a temporary glass-ionomer restoration is placed. The amount removed is as much as a proper restoration can be placed. After 4-6 months the patients are recalled and the temporary restoration is removed and final selective carious removal is completed until firm dentin remains followed by permanent resin restoration. The primary outcome is to avoid pulp complication at the 1-year follow-up evaluating. The secondary outcomes are to arrest caries progression and sufficient restoration at the 1-year follow-up. All outcomes will further be assessed 3 years after inclusion.
