There are about 7543 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Netherlands. 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.
Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) guidelines have been changed, favoring dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with the more potent P2Y12 inhibitor ticagrelor over clopidogrel (besides aspirin). This change is based on studies that showed benefits of ticagrelor. However, study participants were only partly treated by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). In patients who were treated by PCI, this was generally performed using of bare metal or first-generation drug-eluting stents (DES). CHANGE DAPT is an investigator-initiated, prospective, single centre registry, in which we evaluate the impact of the guideline suggested change in the primary DAPT regimen (from clopidogrel to ticagrelor) on 1-year clinical outcome in ACS patients treated by PCI with newer-generation DES in the Thoraxcentrum Twente.
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is increasingly used to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis who are at increased risk for surgical aortic valve replacement and is projected to be the preferred treatment modality. As patient selection and operator experience have improved, it is hypothesised that device-host interactions will play a more dominant role in outcome. This, in combination with the increasing number of valve types and sizes, confronts the physician with the dilemma to choose the valve that best fits the individual patient. This necessitates the availability of pre-procedural computer simulation that is based upon the integration of the patient-specific anatomy, the physical and (bio)mechanical properties of the valve and recipient anatomy derived from in-vitro experiments. Patient-specific computer simulation may improve outcome of TAVI by proposing the valve size that best fits the individual patient. The aim of this study is to assess the added value of patient-specific computer simulation in valve size selection.
The aim of this project is to investigate the effectiveness of phase-based trauma-focused therapy (PBT) and intensive trauma-focused therapy (I-TFT) for adult patients with PTSD related to childhood abuse. We will carry out a RCT, randomizing 150 patients to receive either standard TFT, PBT or i-TFT. The effects will be assessed at two endpoints of treatment (4, 8 and 16 weeks) and after a 6 and 12 months follow-up in an intention-to-treat analysis.
The purpose of this study is to compare the pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of the autoinjector and pre-filled syringe of SB4 in healthy male subjects.
To investigate the safety and efficacy of abatacept with steroid treatment in comparison to steroid treatment alone in up to a 28 week taper of steroid treatment to sustain remission of Giant Cell Arteritis in adults.
The Alpha Omega Cohort is a prospective study of 4,837 state-of-the-art drug-treated Dutch patients aged 60-80 years who had a clinically diagnosed myocardial infarction up to 10 years before enrolment. During the first 40 months of follow-up, patients took part in an experimental study of low doses n-3 fatty acids (Alpha Omega Trial, ClinicalTrials.gov NCT00127452). At baseline (2002-2006), data on medical history, medication use, diet, lifestyle and other factors were collected by means of questionnaires. Patients were physically examined by trained research nurses and blood samples were obtained. Follow-up for vital status and cause-specific mortality is ongoing. The trial was approved by a central medical ethics committee (Haga Hospital, The Hague, The Netherlands) and all patients provided written informed consent.
A randomized controlled prospective clinical trial assessing the efficacy and safety of progressive esophageal dilation compared to conservative esophageal dilation in patients with severe benign esophageal strictures.
This is a phase IIIb, single arm, open-label, multi-center study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of emicizumab in participants with congenital hemophilia A who have documented inhibitors against Factor VIII (FVIII) at enrollment. Approximately 200 participants, aged 12 or older, will be enrolled in this study and are expected to be enrolled at approximately 85 sites globally. Participants will receive an initial weekly dose of prophylactic emicizumab subcutaneously for 4 weeks, followed by a weekly maintenance dose subcutaneously for the remainder of the 2-year treatment period.
The main aim of this observational, prospective cohort study is to assess associations of diet and other lifestyle factors with colorectal cancer recurrence, survival and quality of life.
This study tests the hypothesis that dapagliflozin lowers proteinuria in patients with non-diabetic chronic kidney disease.
