There are about 1083 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.
Pragmatic opened labeled trial. Participants will be randomly divided into control & intervention group during admission to hospital using random numbers. Participants were randomized into two groups: the carbohydrate-protein (CHO-P) group and control (CO) group. Participants were given a specific drink to their group on the evening prior to surgery and three hours before operation. The CHO-P group received 474ml (evening drink) or 237ml (3hours prior to operation drink) of a solution contain 14% whey protein, 86% carbohydrates and 0% lipids and the CO group nil-by-mouth at 12 midnight day of operation. All participants fasted for solids for 6 hours from the operation.
This trial will test if adding nitric oxide (NO) gas to the cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) circuit in infants undergoing an arterial switch operation (ASO) for Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA) changes the incidence of major postoperative adverse events (AEs). Major postoperative AEs include cardiac arrest, emergency chest opening, use of ECMO (machine that acts as an artificial heart and lung during surgery), and death. Participants will be randomised to receive oxygen plus nitric oxide (intervention arm) or oxygen without nitric oxide (control arm) during CPB.
This study is conducted to examine GLP-1, insulin resistance and insulin sensitivity portfolio in Malay, Chinese and Indian populations in Malaysia and to study the effect of DPPIV inhibitor in T2DM patients with different GLP-levels.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the antiviral activity, clinical outcomes, safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic relationships of different oral dose levels of JNJ-53718678 in children greater than or equal to 28 days and less than or equal to 3 years of age with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) disease (hospitalized participants [Cohort 1] or outpatients [Cohort 2]).
The study aimed to assess the effectiveness of intravenous thiamine as compared with placebo in reducing the lactate level in septic shock patients.
Orthopaedic surgeries involving the legs can be done under nerve block, where patients will be numb of pain at the operated site but awake during surgery. Sedation can be given to allay anxiety and provide comfort throughout the surgery. Sedation can be given by the anaesthetic doctors by using target-comtrolled infusion pump, or self-administered by patients by means of specialised machines. This study compares two method of administration of sedation, patient-controlled sedation (PCS) versus target-controlled infusion sedation (TCIS) by anaesthetic doctors, in people undergoing orthopaedic surgeries under nerve block.
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection can be treated, but therapy is usually lifelong and has side effects, so a cure for HBV is a critical endpoint. This study examines the key steps to HBV cure in the setting of HIV-HBV co-infection, where rates of development of antibodies against HBV after starting HBV treatment are higher than in people with HBV alone starting treatment. In Asia both HBV and HIV are common so this provides a unique opportunity to study HBV. We will investigate how an effective immune response against the two main HBV proteins is developed. If we can understand how the immune response works against HBV, this could be used to develop new therapies towards a cure for HBV
The incidence of prostate cancer has been rising steadily both globally and in Malaysia. Besides an ageing population, another reason cited to explain the increase, is the corresponding increase in the prostate cancer screening rates, especially using non-invasive tests like the prostate specific antigen (PSA). General practitioners, being front liners in medicine, play an important role in helping men make an informed decision on prostate cancer screening. In Malaysia, about 50% of GPs would routinely screen asymptomatic men and 95% of them would use PSA as a screening tool. Despite this, the evidence for screening is inconclusive, as evidenced from two major trials on screening [The European Randomised Study of Screening for Prostate Cancer (ERSPC) and Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian Cancer Screening trial (PLCO)]. Furthermore, clinical practice guidelines globally provide conflicting recommendations on this subject, and none has been published in Malaysia to date. Therefore, our study aims to determine the effectiveness of an online training module in helping GPs' better understand the controversies surrounding prostate cancer screening, and in so doing, improve their practice of screening. The investigators hypothesise that GPs who are randomised to receive their online module will be less inclined to screen unnecessarily for prostate cancer.
The main aim of this intervention study is to test the hypothesis if helmet initiative program will significantly increase helmet usage in primary school students. The secondary aim of this intervention is to evaluate the behavioral change in standard child safety helmet usage among the parent/adult riders. The study was conducted in 23 primary school in Selangor from 1st January 2016 to 31st December 2018 in three different phases.
The main aim of this intervention study is to test the hypothesis if school based educational intervention program will significantly improve the knowledge of primary school student on childhood burn prevention in Kuala Lumpur. The secondary aim the evaluate the association of demographics background, burn injury history with knowledge on burn. The study was conducted in 12 primary school in Kuala Lumpur from 1st January 2015 to 31st December 2017 in three different phases.
