There are about 8738 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.
This a double blind, randomized, placebo controlled, single and multiple ascending dose (SAD/MAD) study in healthy subjects. Safety evaluation will include adverse events (TEAEs), clinical laboratory values, vital signs, ECGs, and physical examinations.
This will be a Phase 1, randomized, double-blind, single center, placebo-controlled, multiple ascending dose (MAD) study in a maximum of 3 cohorts of 8 healthy male and female subjects each. Subjects in Cohorts 1, 2 and 3 will receive ascending multiple IV doses of NPT189 or matching placebo.
To improve detection of esophageal (pre)malignant lesions during surveillance endoscopy of patients at risk of developing malignancies, for example in Barrett's Esophagus (BE), there is a need for better endoscopic visualization and the ability for targeted biopsies. Optical molecular imaging of neoplasia associated biomarkers could form a promising technique to accommodate this need. It is known that the biomarker Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) is overexpressed in dysplastic and neoplastic areas in BE segments versus normal tissue and has proven to be a valid target for molecular imaging. The University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) developed a fluorescent tracer by labeling the VEGF-targeting humanized monoclonal antibody bevacizumab, currently used in anti-cancer therapy, with the fluorescent dye IRDye800CW. The phase I study, named VICE, completed within the UMCG, showed that synchronal use of VEGFA-guided near-infrared fluorescence molecular endoscopy (NIR-FME) and high-definition white light endoscopy (HD-WLE), following topical or systemic tracer administration, could be practiced to recognize dysplastic and early EAC lesions in patients with BE. Furthermore, early lesion detection was improved by ~33% using the topically applied tracer approach compared with HD-WL/NBI endoscopy. With this phase 2 intervention study the investigators aim to statistically confirm previous pilot (Phase I) clinical data showing that the combination of HD-WLE and FME using labelled bevacizumab improves early EC detection over the current clinical standard.
Premature infants often receive respiratory support and supplemental oxygen for a prolonged period of time during their admission in the NICU. While maintaining the oxygen saturation within a narrow target range is important to prevent morbidity, manual oxygen titration can be very challenging. Automatic titration by a controller has been proven to be more effective. However, to date the performance of different controllers has not been compared. The proposed randomized crossover trial Comparing Oxygen Controllers in Preterm InfanTs (COCkPIT) is designed to compare the effect on time spent within target range. The results of this trial will help determining which algorithm is most successful in controlling oxygen, improve future developments in automated oxygen control and ultimately reduce the morbidity associated with hypoxemia and hyperoxemia.
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy (rate of very good partial response [VGPR] or better as best response as defined by the International Myeloma Working Group [IMWG] criteria) of daratumumab subcutaneous (Dara-SC) in combination with carfilzomib and dexamethasone (Kd) with the efficacy of Kd in participants with relapsed refractory multiple myeloma who were previously exposed to daratumumab intravenous (Dara-IV) to evaluate daratumumab retreatment.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of 4 or more DNA-repair defects in a population of men with metastatic Prostate Cancer (PC) and to use the variants reported to assess biomarker eligibility for niraparib interventional studies.
The purpose of this study is to assess safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of M254 after administration of a single ascending dose and repeat doses in healthy volunteers and immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) patients. The pharmacodynamics of the drug will be measured as platelet response in patients with ITP.
Current efforts to arrest the epidemic of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have had limited success. Thus there is an urgent need for effective approaches to prevent the development of T2DM. It is widely accepted that the current epidemic is driven by an increase in global food abundance and reduced food quality, making changes in diet a key determinant of the T2DM epidemic. Dietary factors can affect cardio-metabolic health; among these factors, advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) in food are potential risk factors for insulin resistance and T2DM. AGEs are a heterogeneous group of unavoidable stable bioactive compounds. Endogenous formation of AGEs is a continuous naturally occurring process, and is the result of normal metabolism. However, increased formation of AGEs occurs during ageing and under hyperglycaemic conditions. AGEs are implicated in the development of diabetes and vascular complications. Over the past several decades, methods of food processing have changed and meals now contain excess fat and sugar and are most susceptible for the formation of AGEs. In addition, AGEs in food are highly desirable due to their profound effect on shelf life, sterility, flavour, colour, and thus food consumption. Hence, a substantial portion of AGEs are derived from exogenous sources, particularly food. These exogenous AGEs are potential risk factors for insulin resistance and the development of T2DM. We recently found that dietary AGEs represent a significant source of circulating AGEs, and have similar pathogenic properties compared to their endogenous counterparts including the development of insulin resistance and T2DM. Taken together, dietary AGEs are proposed to play a pivotal role in the development and progression of T2DM and its complications. Reduction of dietary intake of AGEs may therefore be an alternative strategy to reduce the risk of vascular disease and insulin resistance. We therefore hypothesize that dietary restriction of AGEs in overweight individuals improves insulin sensitivity, β-cell function, and vascular function.
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a rare, progressive life-threatening disease that is characterized by exertional dyspnea and persistent dry cough. Cough in IPF is both a presenting and a complicating clinical feature, which affects approximately three quarters of IPF cases. It is often a debilitating symptom that adversely affects quality of life (QoL) and is usually refractory to medical therapy. Inhaled RVT-1601 (formerly, PA101B), a new inhalation formulation of cromolyn sodium delivered via the eFlow® Closed System (CS) nebulizer, is being evaluated in this Phase 2b study for the treatment of persistent cough in patients with IPF.
This study aims to evaluate the pathologic response at 12 months after single dose preoperative partial breast irradiation in early stage breast cancer patients. Furthermore, the aim is to collect data on response monitoring. Patient-reported outcome measures and treatment-induced toxicity will be evaluated.
