There are about 100 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Morocco. 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 aim of the study was to compare the clinical effects of systemic use of doxycycline to amoxicillin plus metronidazole as adjunctive treatment in nonsurgical debridement of aggressive periodontitis (AgP). Twenty four patients with aggressive periodontitis were enrolled in this clinical study. They all received oral hygiene instruction and full-mouth nonsurgical debridement using manual instruments. The test group received as adjunctive antibiotic treatment 200 mg of doxycycline the first day followed by 100 mg per day during 14 days. The control group received 500 of amoxicillin and 250 of metronidazole, three times a day for 7 days.
Surgery for digestive cancers is managed according to quality standards, validated by the scientific community. Despite the diffusion of these standards through the benchmarks of good practice, the results of the surgery remain disparate. In many countries, this "inequality of opportunity" has justified the establishment of quality assurance systems to measure the results of surgery for one or more localizations of digestive cancer. These surgical audit experiments have shown a positive, rapid and cost-effective impact on complication rates, recurrence rates and overall survival even in the absence of interventional measures. The data collected also helped to improve the management of subgroups of patients usually excluded from clinical trials. In Morocco, the National Cancer Prevention and Control Plan provides for the establishment of a quality assurance system with the introduction of a system for monitoring and evaluating the care of patients. This pilot project is part of this framework, for the group of patients who are candidates for surgery for digestive cancers.
During inflammation hepcidin concentrations are increased, leading to a decrease in iron absorption. In iron deficiency anemia hepcidin is suppressed due to the activation of erythropoiesis. Whether inflammation or anemia has the stronger effect on hepcidin is uncertain.
The overall objective of this study is to develop a reliable method to obtain habitual iodine intakes from spot urinary iodine concentration (UIC) and to assess the prevalence of inadequate iodine intake in school-age children and women of reproductive age. We will evaluate different methods to estimate iodine intake from UIC and estimate the prevalence of inadequate and excess iodine intake in UIC studies conducted in populations with low, adequate and high iodine intakes using the the established estimated average requirement (EAR)/Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL) cut-point method.
Many data suggest that patients with low rectal adenocarcinoma who achieved ypT0N0 status have improved survival and disease-free survival (DFS) compared to all other stages however only few data are available regarding the specific prognosis factors of this subgroup. This retrospective multicentric study aimed to predict the prognosis of patients with complete pathological response after neoadjuvant treatment.
This study is a prospective, multicenter, open-label, single-arm effectiveness and safety study in participants with progressive multiple sclerosis (PMS).
The aim of this observational study is to evaluate the quality of life in patients with congenital afibrinogenemia using the Haemo-QoL SF for kids and the Haem-A-QoL for adult patients.
This is a multicenter, international, double-blind randomized Phase III study to evaluate the pathological complete response (pCR) according to Chevalier classification between Fulvestrant® and the combination of Fulvestrant® plus Palbociclib as neoadjuvant therapy of hormone-sensitive patients with operable luminal breast cancer. Eligible patients will be assessed upfront using the OncotypeDX® molecular test (Recurrence Score <31).
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of atezolizumab plus chemotherapy compared with placebo plus chemotherapy in patients with inoperable recurrent triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).
This is a Phase III/IV, single-arm, multicenter study of the long-term safety and efficacy of atezolizumab treatment in participants with Stage IIIb or Stage IV NSCLC who have progressed after standard systemic chemotherapy (including if given in combination with anti-programmed cell death protein 1 [anti-PD-1] therapy, after anti-PD-1 as monotherapy, or after tyrosine kinase inhibitor [TKI] therapy). The study will consist of a Screening Period, a Treatment Period, a Treatment Discontinuation Visit, and a Follow-Up Period.
