There are about 113 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Luxembourg. 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.
Patients who are hospitalized in intensive care unit (ICU) require basic nursing care to improve patient hygiene, to promote comfort, to prevent pressure ulcer, and foot or hand's retractations. Those nursing cares require mobilization very frequently which expose critically ill patients to occurrence of serious adverse events (SAE) such as i) hemodynamic, neurologic, and respiratory variations ii) unplanned dislodgement (lines, drains, catheters, endotracheal tube..) Few study have evaluated relation between SAE occurence and several patient's, service's, health-care provider's caracteristics. We plan to analyse those factors to find some ways to prevent SAE occurence during nursing and hygiene cares.
This study evaluates the use of the FD2 automated closed loop insulin administration in Adolescents with a poor metabolic control . All youth will be treated in a random order by their usual pump treatment or an Automated system and we will evaluate whether this has an impact on metabolic control and sleep
Observational study to evaluate, under real-world practice conditions, the safety and effectiveness of regorafenib in patients diagnosed with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (uHCC)
Stereotactic radiotherapy is an innovative treatment enabling to target accurately brain metastases. The aim of this study is to evaluate tumoral response and acute and late toxicity of this treatment.
Focused stereotactic radiation treatment of localized prostatic adenocarcinoma. in order to quantify the delay between the focused treatment and the salvage procedure.
This study will evaluate the long term performance and safety data for the Cadence™ Total Ankle System (CTAS) when used for primary arthroplasty in patients with primary arthritis (e.g. degenerative disease), secondary arthritis (e.g. post-traumatic, avascular necrosis, if minimally 2/3 of the talus is preserved), and systemic arthritis of the ankle (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis, hemochromatosis)
Robotic Stereotactic Radiation treatment of prostatic adenocarcinoma of the elderly. Inclusion criteria : T1-T3b, MRI pelvic nodes negative, M0, any Gleason Score, PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) <30ng/ml. Dose : 36.25 Gy in 5 fractions, in 10 days, considering CAPRA Scores≤5 AND 37.5 Gy in 5 fractions, in 10 days, considering CAPRA Scores>5. Primary objective : acute and late toxicity evaluation at 36 months. Secondary objectives : PSA and MRI response.
Physical activity is not only efficient for primary prevention of several cancer types, but it also plays an important role in cancer survivors. Physical activity after a cancer diagnosis has been associated with reduced overall and cancer-specific mortality. It has significant positive effects on physical fitness and several cancer-related symptoms including fatigue, sleep disturbance, depression and anxiety. The evidence is considerable and consistent for breast, colorectal and endometrial cancers. However, patients are generally insufficiently active, and participation rates in physical activity opportunities offered by specialized organizations are low. This pilot study will evaluate the feasibility, efficacy and cost-effectiveness of an intervention seeking to increase active lifestyle and physical activity participation of cancer patients. To encourage this behavioural change, motivational interviewing will be used, a patient-centred approach aimed at increasing the patients' motivation for a behavioural change through open-ended discussions. Seventy patients with breast, colorectal or endometrial cancer will be recruited within a time period of 12 months. Patients will be randomly assigned to an intervention or a control group. The intervention group will receive standard care alongside 12 motivational interviewing sessions within 12 weeks. The control group will receive standard care only. Physical activity behaviour (3D-accelerometer) and physical fitness (cardiovascular and strength fitness) will be measured in the week preceding and following the intervention. Additionally, a subgroup from both study arms will be assessed 12 weeks after the completion of the intervention. The investigators hypothesize that sedentary time will decrease and time spent in moderate and vigorous physical activity, physical fitness and quality of life of cancer survivors will increase to a greater extent in the intervention group than in the control group. Furthermore, health-related quality of life and resource use (intervention and healthcare costs, out of pocket costs) will be measured to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the intervention.
Hippocampus and amygdala are parts of the brain involved in the recognition of emotions, memories, memory, language ... It is therefore very important to protect them during irradiation of the brain. The aim of this study is to evaluate cerebral irradiation with saving hippocampus and amygdala protects these brain functions in patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC) Radiotherapy of the brain
The present register has been designed to confirm the hypothesis that while using high quality Intensity Modulated Radiation Techniques (IMRT) and a reduced external beam stereotactic boost component it would be possible to maintain the late severe toxicity rates under the 5 % level in situations where brachytherapy could not be proposed as a boost.
