There are about 973 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.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical performance of Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative in Class I and Class II restorations compared to the conventional incremental technique using Filtek Z350XT over the period of 2 years. The null hypothesis of this study is that the bulk-fill composite will exhibit same result and clinical performance as conventional composite using incremental technique which has been used widely by dentists nowadays.
Hyperthyroidism is the second most common endocrine disorder in the world with Graves' disease being the commonest. Anti thyroid drugs including methimazole, carbimazole, and propylthiouracil are effective treatments but take in most cases between 6 to 8 weeks to achieve euthyroidism. This study aim to assess the efficacy of cholestyramine and prednisolone as adjunctive treatment to standard treatment in patients with overt hyperthyroidism in 4 weeks.
This is a multicenter, multinational, double-blind, 1:1 randomized, parallel-group, equivalence Phase 3 study to compare the efficacy and safety of MB02 plus chemotherapy (carboplatin and paclitaxel) versus Avastin® plus chemotherapy (carboplatin and paclitaxel) in subjects with Stage IIIB/IV non-squamous NSCLC
A Non-Interventional Retrospective Study To Assess The Level Of Asthma Control Among Adults at 2 Tertiary Care Centres In Malaysia; Institute Of Respiratory Medicine (IPR) And Hospital Serdang. The specific objective of the study is to assess, in real-life clinical practice in Malaysia, the level of GINA-defined asthma control and the potential risk factors for uncontrolled disease in asthma patients
Plaque accumulation on tooth and gingival surfaces is a causative factor for oral diseases such as demineralization, dental caries, gingivitis, and periodontitis. Tooth brushing and flossing have been the cornerstone of oral hygiene and health. However, the high incidence and prevalence of gum problems in both the developed and developing world show these mechanical routines are not enough. Furthermore, many patients find it difficult to comply with this daily regime of brushing and flossing. Consistent with problems associated with maintaining oral health, periodontal disease is one of the most common chronic infections in adults. According to Philstrom, et al. up to 90% of the world's population has or will suffer from periodontal disease.Thus, the maintenance of an adequate level of plaque control by the individual through his or her daily oral hygiene is vital to prevent and control periodontal disease. Studies demonstrate that poor oral hygiene is widespread with about 60% of plaque found on the surfaces of the teeth after brushing. This may be due to the lack of manipulative skills, lack of motivation and compliance.Hence, increasing education and improving brushing technique by improving oral hygiene products is one way to enhance plaque removal in everyday brushing. The ability to see plaque while brushing will enhance patient's awareness and encourage them to be more thorough when performing oral hygiene.
To evaluate the outcome of a prednisolone and low dose methotrexate based protocol in Down syndrome children with ALL (DS-ALL) in an Asia-wide study. The treatment protocol was modified based upon backbone of Taiwan Pediatric Oncology Group (TPOG)-ALL protocol in which risk classification will be guided by level of flow minimal residual disease (MRD) instead.
This project aims to study the benefits of probiotics namely Lactobacillus plantarum P8 for brain health properties, primarily alleviation of stress, among adults in Malaysia aged from 18 to 60 years.
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the 6th most common cancer in the world but the 2nd most important cause of cancer death. Because of its highly heterogeneous nature, the current approach to identifying druggable targets have not delivered efficacious therapies in HCC and is a main reason for the high case fatality. Even when surgical resection is potentially curative in early disease, tumor recurrence remains high and long term survival poor because of the absence of useful adjuvant therapy. To address these unmet needs, the investigators bring together internationally recognized scientists from genomics and immunology and established clinician investigators in a synergistic team. This TCR capitalizes on recent collaborative advances made by the PIs in the consortium. The investigators have shown through multi-region sampling of freshly resected HCC and phylogenetic analysis, that significant intra-tumoral heterogeneity exists and have identified the specific positions of known clonal drivers. Simultaneously the investigators have analyzed the immune landscape of the tumor microenvironment with deep immune-phenotyping and found unique inter-patient immune landscapes predictive of clinical trajectory. This TCR is a prospective study that samples resected HCC from multi-ethnic sites within the established Asia-Pacific Hepatocellular Carcinoma (AHCC) Trials Group, which has enrolled approximately 1000 patients through 6 multi-center trials in 35 centers in the region. Clinical trajectories are tracked and genomic and immunological studies are repeated when tumors recu r, to confirm clonally dominant driver mutations and immunological processes that are targetable. Concurrently, representative pre-clinical models will be developed from the tissues sampled. The investigators aim to combine these approaches to overcome the challenges posed by genomic heterogeneity and to guide the development of therapeutics and precision medicine in HCC.
Based on recent nutrition survey (SEANUTS Malaysia) on a total of 3542 Malaysian Children aged between 6 months to 12 years old, 4.4% of the children had vitamin A deficiency. Rural areas recorded a higher prevalence of vitamin A deficiency (6.4%) compared with urban areas (3.8%). Besides, prevalence of iron deficiency due to low ferritin concentrations is 4.4% and anaemia based on low haemoglobin concentrations is 6.6%. It is proposed that a red palm oil intervention programme to be conducted in alliance with RMT in Malaysia to enhance the Vitamin A status of school children in underprivileged community in Malaysia.
This is a retrospective descriptive study, to study the treatment indications, changes in transfusion need, coagulation profiles changes and clinical outcome (survival, complication) of non-haemophiliac patients who received activated factor seven (rFVIIa / NovoSeven®) during massive bleeding in Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM)
