There are about 1060 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Malaysia. 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.
Spinal biopsy is important to obtain culture and histopathological diagnosis in spine infection and tumors. To date, there is no prospective randomized study comparing both techniques. Therefore, the aim of this prospective randomized trial was to evaluate the accuracy, safety and diagnostic outcome of both these techniques.A prospective randomized trial was performed in 60 patients divided equally into fluoroscopic and CT guided spinal biopsy groups. Transpedicular approach was done with 8G core biopsy needle. Specimens were sent for histopathological examinations and cultures. Diagnosis were made based on biopsy results, clinical criteria and disease progression during 6 months follow up. Radiation expose to patients and doctors were measured with optically stimulated luminescence dosimeters (OSLDs).
This is a cross-sectional study to evaluate the utilities of a panel of biomarkers (Procalcitonin, Interleukin-6, Serum Amyloid A and Apolipoprotein C2) versus the gold standard blood culture result diagnosing late-onset neonatal sepsis (LONS) and/or necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Neonates who meet the initial screening criteria for suspected LONS or NEC will be recruited into the study. A group of 50 neonates who are clinically well, admitted to the nursery or general ward for reasons other than neonatal sepsis or NEC will also be recruited into the study.
1) To evaluate the efficacy and safety of cariprazine at a target dose of 3.0 mg/d compared with placebo in prevention of relapse in patients with bipolar I disorder whose current episode (i.e. index episode) is manic or depressive, with or without mixed features; 2) To evaluate the efficacy and safety of cariprazine at a target dose of 1.5 mg/d compared with placebo in prevention of relapse in patients with bipolar I disorder whose current episode (i.e. index episode) is manic or depressive, with or without mixed features who were initially stabilized on a target dose of 3.0 mg/d
To compare the performance of the comparator Flexima 3S appliance to a new 2-piece appliance in patients with enterostomy.
The objective of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of upadacitinib for the treatment of adolescent and adult participants with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (AD) who are candidates for systemic therapy.
Background: The exit strategy after ureteroscopy for stone treatment remains a topic for discussion. Current EAU guidelines on urolithiasis state that postoperative stenting is indicated in patients at increased risk of postoperative complications. Stenting is not considered necessary in all other cases, and after uncomplicated procedures. Objective: To analyse the postoperative ureteral stenting strategy in clinical practice looking at the indication, type of stents used and the duration of stenting after ureteroscopy for stone treatment. Furthermore, the investigators will examine in what setting the stents are being removed postoperatively. Study design: This study is a prospective, observational, international, multicentre registry study executed by uCARE. Study population: All patients >18 years with a ureter or renal stone who are planned for ureteroscopic treatment by semi-rigid and/or flexible ureteroscopy are eligible for this study.
This study will assess the safety and efficacy of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for the treatment of migraine.
To provide real world data on patient characteristics, disease management, healthcare utilization, and outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes and established micro- and/or macrovascular disease
The primary hypothesis in this trial is that the treatment with vericiguat 10 mg or 15 mg in patients with HFpEF improves the KCCQ PLS (Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire Physical limitation score) compared to placebo after 24 weeks of treatment.
The objective of this study is to address the anti-inflammatory effect of tocotrienol supplementation in subjects with moderately elevated inflammation. It is hypothesized that 6 months supplementation of tocotrienols will reduce inflammatory markers of subjects.
