There are about 1041 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.
This study will look at how a known study medicine N8-GP works in previously N8-GP treated people with haemophilia A. The aim is to look at how N8-GP works during regular use. Participants will get N8-GP. N8-GP has been tested in more than 200 people with haemophilia A for several years. Participants will get an injection of N8-GP into a blood vessel, one, two or three times weekly. Participants will get more doses if they bleed or if they will need a surgery. The study will last for about 2 years. Participants will have at least 9 visits with the study doctor. If participants agree to be in this study, they will get their first injection (in this study) at the first visit. Participants will also get an injection at visit 3, 5 and 7. Participants will be trained to give all other injections themselves. Participants must not use any clotting factors other than N8-GP or any anticoagulants (blood thinners) during the study.
Towards the goal of reducing melioidosis, this study will help clinicians in Sarawak to diagnose and understand the causes and risk factors for melioidosis. The data will help the clinicians to provide faster test results and better clinical care. The investigator's laboratory efforts will supplement available diagnostics by adding a new, easier-to-use test involving lateral flow immunoassay to rapidly detect Burkholderia pseudomallei, a bacterium causing melioidosis. The study aims to study up to 100 patients with melioidosis-like symptoms who are admitted to Kapit Hospital, Sarawak, Malaysia. No participants will be enrolled from other sites. The study will also examine the demographic, behavioral and occupational risk factors associated with hospital admissions to understand any existing associations between these variables and melioidosis prevalence.
A randomized, open-label study with antacid-control will be performed over 48 hours period by continuous pH impedance and bravo capsule monitoring. Asymptomatic obese patients will be separated into either groups according to alginate antacid group [Gaviscon Advance (GA)®, Reckitt Benckiser, UK] and non antacid alginate group [simple antacid]. Both groups will be studied for 48 hours using the ambulatory wireless capsule and pH impedance. Participants according to their group will take either alginate antcid [Gaviscon Advance (GA)®, Reckitt Benckiser, UK] or non alginate antacid [simple antacid] which has equivalent strength of antacid after taking late night standardised meals.
After completion of 5 years of medical school training, the next step of becoming a House Officer is said to be associated with high levels of stress. It has been associated with mental health problems amongst HOs and sometimes quitting the medical line altogether. In Malaysia, the number of HOs not completing housemanship training within the allocated time is slowly declining from 86.4% (2009) to 58.8% (2012). The dropout rate is said to be increasing yearly. This causes a lot of constraints on the HO, their family, sponsors, patients and also the country. Amongst the reason for stress is the feeling of incompetency or "fear of making mistakes". Other work-related issues include workload, time management, financial, colleague and superior related issues. Medicorp is a company that specializes in training for junior doctors and has come up with a module to help medical graduates cope with these issues. The module is a 3-day-course named the HO Preparatory Course. It was initially the brainchild of the Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia (IMAM) but was later privatized to accommodate the demand and the running of the module and courses. The module has been re-evaluated through feedback of participants and trainers to cater to the needs and wants of the newly graduate; be it local or overseas. Therefore, the investigators would like to assess whether this intervention module is effective in addressing HO stress, therefore consequently reduce the risk of drop out and extension in HO training.
The purpose of this study is to determine in hospitalized adult participants infected with human metapneumovirus (hMPV - a virus closely related to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and has been identified as an important cause of acute respiratory infections, affecting all age groups) the dose-response relationship of multiple regimens of lumicitabine on antiviral activity based on nasal hMPV shedding using quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) assay.
This study compares the effect of two types of suturing techniques in the postoperative swelling and mouth opening after surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molar. total wound closure will be performed in one group of participants while partial closure will be performed in the other group.
This clinical trial aims to investigate the efficacy of 20 mg Parecoxib when it is given as an addition to 20 ml 0.75% ropivacaine in patients receiving ultrasound-guided supraclavicular brachial plexus block prior to the upper limb surgeries. It is hypothesised that the addition of parecoxib to ropivacaine will provide superior sensory and motor blockades to those who only received 0.75% ropivacaine. Eighty six (n=86) patients were randomised in one-to-one ratio to either receiving 20 mg parecoxib and 20 ml 0.75% ropivacaine (n=43) or 20 ml 0.75% ropivacaine and 1 ml 0.9% saline (n=43). The primary efficacy outcomes of interest are a) The time to onsets of sensory and motor blockades (measured in minutes); b) The time to recovery from sensory and motor blockades (measured in hours). The secondary efficacy outcomes of interest are a) The presence of complete sensory blockade at 30 minutes post intervention (recorded as a binary yes-no categorical variable); b) The presence of complete motor blockade at 30 minutes post intervention (recorded as a binary yes-no categorical variable).
This study aimed to compare the impact of anticipatory guidance on the caries incidence of 2-3-year-old preschool children and their 4-6-year-old siblings, as well as on their mothers' oral health literacy, as compared to the conventional Ministry of Health (MOH) programme.
This study compares the the efficacy of buccal infiltration of 4% Articaine and 2% Mepivacaine without any palatal injection during extraction of maxillary teeth. One group of patient receives buccal infiltration of Articaine and another group receives buccal infiltration of Mepivacaine.
A 46-week study to compare the efficacy of relamorelin with that of placebo in participants with diabetic gastroparesis (DG). At the end of the 40-week Treatment Period, participants will either continue on relamorelin or placebo for 6 additional weeks.
