There are about 130 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Macedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic of. 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.
Surgery is the primary curative option for patients with cancer, with the overall objective of complete resection of all cancerous tissue while avoiding damage to healthy tissue. In addition, sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping and resection is an essential step in staging and managing the disease. Even with the latest advancements in imaging technology, incomplete tumor resection in patients with breast cancer is at an alarming rate of 20-25%, with recurrence rates of up to 27%. The clinical need for imaging instruments that provide real-time feedback in the operating room is unmet, largely due to the use of imaging systems based on contemporary technological advances in the semiconductor and optical fields, which have bulky and costly designs with suboptimal sensitivity and co-registration accuracy between multimodal images. To address these challenges, the investigators have introduced an innovative design comprising a bio-inspired multispectral sensor which can significantly improve image-guided surgery. The objective of this clinical study is to determine the feasibility of using a bio-inspired multispectral imaging system to detect sentinel lymph nodes and cancerous tissue during intraoperative procedures in patients with breast cancer.
The aim of this study is to develop an adapted version of a low-cost parenting program (Parenting for Lifelong Health for Young Children, PLH) to the specific needs of families in three low- and middle income countries (LMICs) in southeastern Europe (Romania, FYR of Macedonia and Republic of Moldova). The investigators want systematically evaluate key barriers and facilitators at the local, national and international levels that impact prevention of child behavioral disorders. The investigators will prepare training materials adapted to Romanian, Moldovian, Albanian, Macedonian, and Russian and train facilitators and mentor coaches in the delivery of the PLH program in each country. Also, a pre-post study will be conducted testing the feasibility of the program and the evaluation and implementation methods with 40 families at each country site. This includes examination of outcomes related to implementation fidelity, program acceptability, and preliminary program effectiveness on reducing child behavior problems and associated risk factors. This feasibility study is part of a larger implementation project. Developed on the MOST framework (the multiphase optimization strategy), this specific study will reflect the implementation of the first phase. There are two more phases to come: the Parenting for Lifelong Health for Young Children program will be optimized within the three countries by determining which components are most efficacious and cost-effective (phase 2). The optimized PLH programs will be tested in three RCTS in the countries (phase 3).
This is a phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of oral BCX7353 in preventing acute angioedema attacks in patients with Type I and Type II HAE.
This is an open-label study to evaluate the long term safety and effectiveness of oral treatment with BCX7353 in preventing acute angioedema attacks in patients with Type I and Type II HAE.
The purpose of this program is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of guselkumab in participants with Crohn's disease.
This randomized, active-controlled, multicenter, open-label, Phase III study is designed to investigate the efficacy and safety of alectinib compared with platinum-based in the adjuvant setting. Participants in the experimental arm will receive alectinib at 600 mg orally twice daily (BID) taken with food for 24 months. Participants in the control arm will receive one of the protocol specified platinum based chemotherapy regimens for 4 cycles. Following treatment completion, participants will be followed up for their disease until disease recurrence. At the time of disease recurrence, participants will enter a survival follow-up until death, withdrawal of consent or study closure, whichever occurs earlier.
This study will evaluate the efficacy of ipatasertib + paclitaxel versus placebo + paclitaxel in participants with histologically confirmed, locally advanced or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and in participants with locally advanced or metastatic hormone receptor positive (HR+)/ human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative (HER2−) breast adenocarcinoma who are not suitable for endocrine therapy.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of Cemdisiran in patients with aHUS.
This 3-part study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of an oral kallikrein inhibitor, BCX7353, in the treatment angioedema attacks in subjects with Type I or II hereditary angioedema (HAE). In each study part, subjects will treat 3 attacks with BCX7353 (2 attacks) or placebo (1 attack), in a randomly allocated order. In Part 1, the dose of 750mg will be assessed relative to placebo in up to 36 patients. If this is shown to be effective, then a further 12 patients will be enrolled at a 500mg dose (Part 1), followed by a further 12 (if efficacy still shown) at a dose of 250mg (Part 3) to determine the minimum effective dose of BCX7353 compared to placebo for treating HAE attacks. Efficacy will be determined by subject diary entries completed at pre-defined times post-dose.
The study compares two lengths of medication therapy (a shortened versus a prolonged dual antiplatelet therapy) in order to prevent thrombus (blood cloth) formation after the successfully treatment for coronary heart disease with a drug covered stent (metallic tube). This comparison will be done in patients who, compared to the average patient, are more likely to suffer from complications on antiplatelet therapy (bleeding). Both durations are within the current medical recommendations. The aim of this study is to help improve further standard antiplatelet duration guidelines.
