There are about 8553 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.
Anxiety disorders are the most common childhood psychiatric disorders, with prevalence rates as high as 15% to 20%. Success rates of the first choice treatment strategy (i.e. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy; CBT) are around 50%. Non-response increases the risk for other psychiatric disorders, school dropout, social isolation, alcoholism, and suicide attempts. These negative consequences endorse the urgent need to develop more effective and accessible treatments that enhance effectiveness of current treatment options. A promising new treatment for childhood anxiety disorders is Attention Bias Modification Treatment (ABMT). ABMT is based on evidence that anxiety-disordered individuals selectively allocate their attention toward threatening information (i.e. attention bias). This bias in early and automatic attention processes starts a cascade of subsequent biases in information processing and memory, resulting in heightened anxiety. Attention bias is an underlying mechanism of anxiety. Thus ABMT, which implicitly trains individuals to attend away from threatening information should alleviate anxiety. In contrast to ABMT, CBT explicitly targets later stages of information processing that are under volitional control. Meta-analyses of studies in adults have shown that ABMT indeed results in increased recovery rates and clinically significant changes in anxiety, compared to so-called "sham" attention training (control condition). Imaging studies have shown that ABMT modifies lateral prefrontal cortex activity to emotional stimuli. Despite its promising results, fewer studies have examined ABMT in anxiety-disordered children. The aim of this trial is to enhance treatment effectiveness by combining web-based ABMT with CBT in a large sample of anxiety-disordered children. The primary aim is to compare ABMT-augmented CBT with CBT as monotherapy on recovery rates for anxiety disorders and changes in anxiety. The secondary aim is to compare ABMT with sham attention training on anxiety disorder recovery rates and changes in anxiety. We hypothesize that (1) ABMT-augmented CBT will result in a significantly better treatment success than CBT alone, and (2) ABMT will result in a significantly better treatment success than sham attention training. The design will be a randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical trial.
Patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit after severe injury are prone to suffer from infectious complications and even sepsis. Despite tremendous efforts the etiology of this increased susceptibility to infectious pathogens is incompletely understood. Clinical signs and symptoms as well as current diagnostic clinical tests (WBC, CRP, cytokines, interleukines) lack sensitivity or specificity for adequate prediction of the development of infectious complications or sepsis. Neutrophil granulocytes, cells of the innate immune system, play an important role in the defence against invading bacterial pathogens and are crucial in preventing fulminant infections. For successful eradication of a bacterium neutrophils need to exert specific functions: chemotaxis, migration, phagocytosis, degranulation and production of radical oxygen species. Much research has focused on the effect of trauma on neutrophil's individual capacities to kill bacteria with conflicting interpretations as a result. For adequate determination of the neutrophil's capacity to eradicate bacteria from tissue of trauma patients we developed novel in-vitro assays in which neutrophils are tested for all of these functions combined. This assay allows us to identify dysfunctional neutrophils adequately. The main focus of this study is the determination of the functionality of aberrant neutrophils circulating in the peripheral blood of severly injured following trauma.
Neosaxitoxin is a new compound that is in clinical development as local anesthetic for surgical anesthesia and postoperative analgesia. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the systemic and local safety and tolerability of ascending doses of neosaxitoxin alone and in combination with fixed doses of bupivacaine (with and without epinephrine), following brachial plexus blockade in healthy male subjects. Secondary objectives: - Evaluate the pharmacodynamics (PD) of ascending doses of neosaxitoxin, alone and in combination with fixed doses of bupivacaine (with and without epinephrine), following brachial plexus blockade. - Characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) of neosaxitoxin and bupivacaine after brachial plexus blockade with neosaxitoxin alone or different drug combinations: neosaxitoxin and epinephrine, neosaxitoxin and bupivacaine, or neosaxitoxin and bupivacaine and epinephrine.
Purpose of the study is to test whether study drug BAY1128688 brings relief for pain to women with endometriosis and if so to get a first impression which dose(s) work best.
The purpose of this study is to investigate experimental medication BMS-986251 taken by mouth in healthy patients and patients with average to very serious Psoriasis (a condition characterized by itchy, dry skin with a scaly rash).
Inflammation and abnormal amount of lipids in the blood are key factors for the development and progression of atherosclerosis (thickening of the artery wall) and cardiovascular disease. Lipoprotein (a) is a pro-inflammatory plasma lipoprotein that is believed to be a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Vascular inflammation generates a range of effects, including endothelial dysfunction and migration of white blood cells into the vessel wall, which results in increased risk of cardiovascular events. This study is designed to assess the effects of multiple monthly intravenous infusions with the fully human antibody called PC-mAb, in subjects with elevated lipoprotein (a).
The study is designed to collect data on LV latency in CRT-D patients by the CRT-D and compare measurements to 12-lead ECG data
With microwave ablation (MWA), using the heat generated from electromagnetic waves in the microwave energy spectrum, hair follicles and apocrine glands in the (hypo)dermis are ablated through thermolysis. MWA was recently approved for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis (miraDry) and removal of axillary hair (miraSmooth). By permanent removal of hairs and sweat glands, the investigators hypothesize a beneficial and long-term sustainable preventive effect of MWA in HS patients.
Primary Objective: To assess the effects of SAR407899 on coronary vasomotor function using the coronary flow reserve (CFR) in patients with microvascular angina (MVA) and/or persistent stable angina despite angiographically successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Secondary Objectives: - To assess the effects of SAR407899 on quality of life using Seattle Angina Questionnaire physical limitation domain (SAQ-PL) in patients with MVA and/or persistent stable angina despite angiographically successful PCI. - To assess the safety of SAR407899 in patients with MVA and/or persistent stable angina despite angiographically successful PCI with a focus on identified risks such as hypotension and orthostatic hypotension. - To assess SAR407899 plasma concentrations in MVA patients and/or persistent stable angina despite angiographically successful PCI.
The Moderate Alcohol and Cardiovascular Health Trial (MACH15) is a multicenter, worldwide, randomized clinical trial of ~15 gm of alcohol daily versus abstention, using a balanced parallel design and single-blind assessment of all outcomes among approximately 7,800 participants aged 50 years and older with advanced cardiovascular risk. Intervention will average 6 years in duration with a common close-out date. Following recruitment and pre-screening, participants will attend a screening visit followed by a two-week abstention washout period, a baseline visit and randomization, and subsequent visits at 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, and then annually until close-out.
