There are about 777 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 purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of treatment withdrawal vs continued treatment with golimumab (GLM) administered by subcutaneous (SC) injection on the incidence of a "flare" in non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis over up to 12 months. The primary hypothesis is that continued treatment with golimumab is superior to treatment withdrawal, based on the percentage of subjects without a "flare" during up to 12 months of blinded therapy.
The primary objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of vilaprisan in subjects with uterine fibroids compared to ulipristal The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of different treatment regimens of vilaprisan in subjects with uterine fibroids
Stroke is a leading causes of death and disability. At least 20% of strokes occur during sleep, so- called 'wake up stroke'. Thrombolysis with the clot-busting drug alteplase is effective for acute ischaemic stroke, provided that it is given within 4.5 hours of symptom onset. Patients with wake-up stroke are currently ineligible for clot-busting therapy. Previous studies indicate that many wake-up strokes occur just before awakening. In this study, patients with wake-up stroke will be randomized to thrombolysis with tenecteplase and best standard treatment or to best standard treatment without thrombolysis. Tenecteplase has several potential advantages over alteplase, including very rapid action and that it can be given as a single injection. Prior to thrombolysis, a brain scan must be done to exclude bleeding or significant brain damage as a result from the stroke. We will use a CT scan to inform this decision. CT is used as a routine examination in all stroke patients. Other studies testing clot-busting treatment in wake-up stroke are using alteplase and more complex brain scans, which are not routinely available in the emergency situation in all hospitals.
This is a multicentre, randomised, double-blind, parallel group study to compare the pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD), immunogenicity, safety, tolerability and efficacy of JHL1101 versus MabThera in subjects with moderate to severe RA who have previously failed at least 1 tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF) inhibitor (i.e., intolerance or documented active disease despite at least 12 weeks treatment according to the TNF inhibitor-approved treatment and dosage), and are on concomitant treatment with MTX.
The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of guselkumab treatment in participants with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) by assessing the reduction in signs and symptoms of PsA.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate how safe, how effective and how well tolerated, the study drug Olokizumab is, in the long-term, in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) who have previously taken part in and completed 24 weeks of blinded treatment in one of the core studies - CREDO 1, 2 or 3.
A 1-year Clinical Investigation on the On1 Concept.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of intranasal esketamine 84 milligram (mg) compared with intranasal placebo in addition to comprehensive standard of care in reducing the symptoms of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), including suicidal ideation, in participants who are assessed to be at imminent risk for suicide, as measured by the change from baseline on the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) total score at 24 hours post first dose.
Purpose of our study is to evaluate effectiveness of Kinesio Taping method for knee osteoarthritis. Using simple concealed randomization procedure to form two groups (kinesio taping and control-nonspecific taping) of 100 knee osteoarthritis patients in each. 1 month all patients (depending on the group they will be allocated to) will receive either kinesio taping applications or non-specific taping: 4 applications per subject. Three times: before taping, after a month with tapes, and after 1 month without tapes evaluation of knee function, mobility, quality of life will be evaluated, including clinical examination of knee joint, measurements of knee flexion and extension by goniometer, circumference of leg over the knee, in ½ of thigh and in ½ of calf (to evaluate edema); pain will be evaluated by questionnaire, patella tendon algometry; force of calf flexors and extensors will be evaluated using Lovett manual muscle testing scale, goniometry for knee flexion/extension; for mobility, knee function, life quality evaluations - 10 Meter Walk , Five Times Sit to Stand Tests will be performed, Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) and Medical Outcomes Study Short Form 36 2 version (SF-36 2v) questionnaires will be used. Also data about the need of analgesic medicament will be collected from subjects.
LEDA (Lithuanian Echocardiography study of Dyspnea in Acute settings) is a prospective observational cohort multicenter clinical study. Project is carried out by Vilnius University together with a partner Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, in conjunction with a research protocol of international GREAT consortium (Global Research on Acute Conditions Team). The aim of this project is to find the specific novel biomarkers of acute heart failure (AHF), to evaluate their diagnostic and prognostic role in association with echocardiographic parameters of AHF. Primary endpoint is 1-year all-cause mortality and rehospitalization. Secondary endpoints are 1) in-hospital all-cause mortality 2) post-discharge 1 and 3 month all-cause mortality and rehospitalization 3) post-discharge 1 and 3 month cardiovascular mortality and rehospitalization 4) one-year cardiovascular mortality and rehospitalization. During the project a sizeable national database (2000 Lithuanian patients) will be integrated into database of GREAT network. Novel cardiac biomarkers together with ultrasound parameters of right ventricular (RV) function are in the focus of the study. During the acute phase of heart failure, up to 15 novel cardiac, vascular, renal impairment and inflammation biomarkers in plasma samples will be investigated in Lithuania and France (INSERM laboratory). Plasma samples will be taken during 4 hours after admission and frozen at -80ºC to allow batch analysis. The extensive evaluation of innovative ultrasound parameters of right ventricular structure and function will be performed in the early hospitalization period, along with standard echocardiography examination. The first database of AHF patients in Lithuania will provide demographic data and trends of morbidity and mortality, as well as analysis of diagnostic and prognostic value of novel biomarkers and echocardiography parameters in the Baltic region. Quantitative parameters of RV systolic function and deformation will be measured. It is expected that optimal use of novel biomarkers and reproducible echocardiography parameters in the setting of emergency and critical care would reduce unnecessary hospitalizations, cost and hospital length of stay without decrease in the quality of diagnostics and treatment. An estimation of correlation of echocardiographic parameters and biomarkers could help create an accurate algorithm for risk stratification and diagnosis of AHF in an emergency setting.
