There are about 8342 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.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of the experimental medication BMS-986256 in healthy participants.
Cognitive performance is negatively related to an impaired glucose metabolism, possibly due to impairments in brain vascular function. Supported by the statement from the American Heart and American Stroke Association that healthy plant-based diets, which consist of soy foods, protect against cognitive decline, we now hypothesize that soy-induced changes in glucose metabolism cause beneficial effects on brain vascular function thereby improving cognitive performance. The primary objective of this intervention study is thus to evaluate in elderly men and women the effect of a 16-week soy intervention on cerebral blood flow, as quantified by the non-invasive gold standard magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) perfusion method Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL). Cerebral blood flow is a robust and sensitive physiological marker of brain vascular function. Secondary objectives are to examine effects on glucose metabolism using the oral glucose tolerance test and cognitive performance as assessed with a neurophysiological test battery.
Obese people have a disturbed postprandial metabolism and thereby a decreased postprandial vascular function. Nitric oxide plays an important role in the postprandial vascular function. Multiple studies already focused on various nutritional compounds to improve the postprandial vascular function by increasing the nitric oxide bioactivity. However, the vast majority of the trials has been performed with relatively high doses of the individual components, which are problematic to convert into daily food measures, thereby preventing translation of these findings. Well-designed trails studying the effect of feasible amounts of nutritional supplements on the bioactivity of nitric oxide and vascular function are missing.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the experimental medication BMS-986165 compared to placebo and a currently available treatment in participants with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of RO6867461 administered at 8-week intervals or as specified in the protocol following treatment initiation, compared with aflibercept once every 8 weeks (Q8W), in participants with diabetic macular edema (DME).
Cholangiocarcinoma is an epithelial cell malignancy arising from varying locations within the biliary tree and is difficult to diagnose due to the often-silent clinical nature. The best chance of long-term survival and potential cure is surgical resection with negative surgical margins, but many patients are unresectable due to locally advanced or metastatic disease at diagnosis. Because cholangiocarcinoma is difficult to diagnose at an early stage and extends diffusely, most patients have unresectable disease at clinical presentation, and prognosis is very poor (5-year survival is 0-40% even in resected cases) There is a need for better visualization of tumor tissue, lymph nodes and resection margins during surgery for perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (PHCC). Optical molecular imaging of PHCC associated biomarkers is a promising technique to accommodate this need. The biomarkers Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF-A), Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) and c-MET are all overexpressed in PHCC versus normal tissue and are proven to be valid targets for molecular imaging. Currently, tracers that target these biomarkers are available for use in clinical studies. In previous studies with other tumor types, the investigators tested the tracer bevacizumab-IRDye800CW for the biomarker VEGF-A with very promising results. Since all markers show roughly similar expression in ex vivo studies, the initial study will be performed with bevacizumab-IRDye800CW as the investigators have the most experience with this tracer. The investigators hypothesize that the tracer bevacizumab-IRDye 800CW accumulates in PHCC tissue, enabling visualization using a NIR intraoperative camera system and ex vivo NIR endoscopy. In this pilot study, the investigators will determine if it is possible to detect PHCC intraoperatively and by ex vivo NIR endoscopy using bevacizumab 800CW, and which tracer dose gives the best target-to-background ratio. The most optimal tracer dose will be selected for a future phase II trial.
This is an international, multicentre, parallel-group, event-driven, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in HFpEF patients, evaluating the effect of dapagliflozin 10 mg versus placebo, given once daily in addition to background regional standard of care therapy, including treatments to control co-morbidities, in reducing the composite of CV death or heart failure events.
This is a prospective, multi-center, single-arm study to evaluate safety and efficacy of the VenTouch System for treatment of subjects with functional MR.
MPS IIIA is predominantly a central nervous system disease causing cognitive disability, progressive loss of acquired skills, behavioral and sleep disturbance. LYS-SAF302 is a gene therapy which is intended to deliver a functional copy of the SGSH gene to the brain. This is a phase 2-3 study to assess the efficacy in improving or stabilizing the neurodevelopmental state of MPS IIIA patients.
The aim of this randomized controlled trial is to demonstrate that a nurse-led sexual rehabilitation intervention significantly improves sexual recovery and functioning among gynaecological cancer (GC) patients treated with radiotherapy (RT), compared with usual care (i.e., oral information by a nurse or doctor and written information). Women with GC (n=220) who receive RT in one of the participating Dutch GC centres (n=9) will be randomized to either the sexual rehabilitation intervention (n= 110) or usual care (n= 110), stratified for combined RTBT vs. RT alone, and for having a partner (yes/no). Women are eligible for participation if they: have been diagnosed with either cervical, endometrial, or vaginal cancer; are treated with radiotherapy; are 18 years or older; and wish to retain their sexual activity on the short or long term. The intervention consists of four one-hour sessions at 1 month, 3, 6, and 12 months after RT. Women who received RTBT will receive an additional appointment with the nurse (2 months after RTBT) to promote regular use of vaginal dilators in order to prevent stenosis. Participants are requested to complete questionnaires at baseline and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months post-RT. The primary endpoint is sexual functioning at 12 months. Secondary endpoints include vaginal symptoms and body concerns, fear of coital and non-coital sexual activity, sexual distress, treatment-related distress, generic health-related quality of life, psychological distress, and relationship dissatisfaction. Hypothesis: The investigators expect women who receive the nurse-led sexual rehabilitation programme to report a greater improvement in sexual functioning from immediate post-radiotherapy to 1 year post-radiotherapy than women in the control group.
