There are about 99 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.
This Phase III, global, multicenter, open-label, randomized, controlled study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of atezolizumab (an anti-programmed death-ligand 1 [anti-PD-L1] antibody) compared with a single agent chemotherapy regimen by investigator choice (vinorelbine or gemcitabine) in treatment-naïve participants with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who are deemed unsuitable for platinum-containing therapy due to poor performance status (Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group [ECOG] performance status of 2-3).
The main goal is to investigate the influence of shoe cushioning and body mass on the risk of running-related injury. This study will allow to determine if shoe cushioning needs to be adapted to the mass of the runner in order to minimize injury risk. The influence of shoe cushioning on running technique will also be investigated. This study consists in a 6-month follow-up period during which leisure-time runners are required to perform a running activity at least once a week and to upload all their running as well as other sporting activities onto a secured web-based training calendar named "Training and Injury Prevention Platform for Sports" (TIPPS) on a weekly basis. Any injury sustained during this period should also be uploaded onto the TIPPS system using the injury questionnaire provided on the website. Finally, the day of the visit to the laboratory (study start), their running style will be analysed during a 15-minute run on an instrumented treadmill at the participant's usual running speed. Anthropometric measurements will also taken. Before the beginning of the study, the participants will receive a pair of running shoes free of charge. These shoes will either have a soft or hard sole. Both shoe versions have cushioning properties that correspond to the range of values from the shoes available on the market. They will be administered through random allocation. Neither the participants nor the research team will know which shoe version was provided to the participant, in order to respect the double-blinded methodology of this study. The participants will be required to use these shoes for all running sessions, and only for running activities. Hypotheses: H1: Running shoes with greater stiffness are associated with a higher injury risk in leisure-time runners. H2: High body mass is associated with a higher injury risk in leisure-time runners. H3: Runners with a high body mass experience a lower injury risk in shoes with greater stiffness. H4: A higher step length, a lower step frequency, and higher peak vertical impact forces are associated with a higher injury risk. H5: Running shoes with greater stiffness will be associated with higher vertical impact peak forces and a shorter contact time. H6: High body mass will be associated with higher peak vertical impact forces, increased contact time, increased duty factor, and decreased step frequency.
The study is an open label single centre randomised cross over study to evaluate the impact of a sensor augmented pump (SAP) with a predictive algorithm to suspend temporarily insulin administration (640G® with the Smart Guard feature) versus the use of the same pump for insulin administration with 'only' continuous glucose measurements (not interacting with the pump, Freestyle Libre ® ) on the time in glucose target , in hypo- and hyperglycemia. Exploratory endpoints are the effect on sleep and quality of life in children with type 1 diabetes and their caregivers.
The suggested clinical trial is part of the KidsAP project funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Framework Programme. The project evaluates the use of the Artificial Pancreas (or closed loop systems) in very young children with type 1 diabetes (T1D) aged 1 to 7 years. The suggested trial is a feasibility study to pilot the setup of a large-scale outcome trial and to address the specific needs of this population. The results of the pilot trial will feed into the design of the outcome study. In this study the investigators will compare closed loop insulin delivery using standard strength insulin to closed loop use with diluted insulin in very young children with T1D. Diluted insulin is a standard treatment approach for children with low insulin requirements. The investigators hypothesize that diluted insulin will lead to more stable glucose levels by reducing inaccuracies accentuated by delivery of minute amounts of insulin (frequently less than 0.1U/h [1μl/h with standard strength insulin] in small children compared to 1U/h in adults). These inaccuracies may result from pump plunger micro-jumps, tissues pressure build-up, and infusion set kinking. This study builds on previous and on-going studies of closed loop systems that have been performed in Cambridge in children and adolescents with T1D in clinical research facilities and in the home setting. The study adopts an open-label, multi-centre, multinational, randomised, two-period crossover design contrasting closed loop glucose control using diluted insulin and closed loop using standard insulin strength under free-living home conditions. The two intervention periods will last 3 weeks each with a 1 to 4 weeks washout period in between. The order of the two interventions will be random. A total of up to 30 young children aged 1 to 7 years with T1D on insulin pump therapy will be recruited through outpatient diabetes clinics at participating clinical centres to allow for 24 completed subjects available for assessment in each of the study arms. Prior to the use of study devices, participants and parents/guardians will receive appropriate training by the research team on the safe use of the study pump and continuous glucose monitoring system, and the hybrid closed loop insulin delivery system. Carers at nursery or school may also receive training by the study team if required. During the intervention periods, subjects and parents/guardians will use the closed loop system for 21 days under free-living conditions in their home and nursery/school environment without remote monitoring or supervision by research staff. The primary outcome is time spent in target range between 3.9 and 10.0 mmol/l as recorded by CGM. Secondary outcomes are the time spent with glucose levels above and below target, as recorded by CGM, and other CGM-based metrics. Safety evaluation comprises the tabulation of severe hypoglycaemic episodes.
The purpose of the BIOLUX P-III BENELUX Registry is to further investigate the safety and clinical performance of the Passeo-18 Lux Drug Coated Ballon when used in daily clinical practice for the treatment of isolated atherosclerotic lesion (vessel narrowing) in popliteal arteries
Study Objective Allergies affect up to 20% of the population of developed countries and can cause substantial individual disease burden. For some allergies, immunotherapeutic regimens ("hyposensitization") have been established, e.g. for insect venom allergies and pollen allergies. This project aims at identifying the T cell activation potential in vivo from resting T cells of patients undergoing immunotherapy (IT) via a systems biology approach. For the participants, it involves blood draws and stool collection as well as gathering some basic medical information. The participation takes one week for patients undergoing insect venom IT and three months for patients undergoing pollen IT. This study is a cooperation project between the Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg (CHL), the Luxemburg Institute of Health (LIH), the University of Luxembourg and the Integrated Biobank of Luxemburg (IBBL).
ILCOR guidelines recommend Target Temperature Management (TTM) to between 32°C and 36°C after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, based on low quality evidence. In a previous trial, TTM at 33°C did not confer a survival benefit or improved neurological function, compared to TTM at 36°C. A lower target temperature might be beneficial compared with normothermia and early treatment of fever. Therefore the primary purpose of the TTM2-trial will be to study any differences in mortality, neurological function and quality of life between a target temperature of 33°C and standard care avoiding fever.
The purpose of this active, observational, open-label, non-randomized, post-market surveillance study is to confirm that EDWARDS INTUITY Elite reduces cross clamp time (XCT) in MIS setting when compared to published data with a conventional valve within the MIS setting.
