There are about 8127 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.
An orthosis in the ballet shoe to see if pain reduction during dancing on pointes will decrease. One group of pre-preprofessional ballet dancers will receive an orthosis and will train during four weeks with it. The other group without a orthosis will be the control group.
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 purpose of study is to test the effect of an experimental medication GED-0301(mongersen) and evaluate its safety in patients (≥ 12 years of age) with active Crohn's disease. The study will test GED-0301 compare to placebo for 12 weeks. The study treatment is blinded which means that patients and the study doctor will not know which treatment has been assigned. Patients in this study will be allowed treatment with stable doses of oral aminosalicylates, oral corticosteroids, immunosupressants and antibiotics for the treatment of Crohn's disease. Adolescent patients will also be allowed treatment with stable doses of exclusive enteral nutrition and growth hormone. All patients who complete the study will have the option to enter a long term active treatment study.
Dose distribution calculations for proton therapy are more accurate when based on DE-CT than on SE-CT. It is however unclear what the quantitative benefit of repeated DE-CT calculations is for lung cancer patients.
This is a randomized controlled trial. One group (intervention group) will get in advance to the prostate biopsy rectal approximately 5 cc Instillagel. And one group (control group) will get in advance to the ultrasound -guided prostate biopsy rectal gel. Pain is measured using the Numerical Rating Scale (NRS). The NRS is an imaginary line from 0 until 10. The 0 is no pain and 10 is most worst imaginable pain.
This will be a phase II trial testing if the combination of SBRT and L19-IL2 improves the progression free survival in patients with limited metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Treatment will be divided in two cohorts: patients eligible for ablative stereotactic body radiotherapy to all metastatic sites (treatment with curative intent) and patients not eligible for stereotactic body radiotherapy to all sites (life prolongation).
Clinical study to evaluate the safety and performance of the CardiAQ-Edwards™ Transcatheter Mitral Valve
This monocenter randomized controlled trial aims to compare postoperative outcomes of a laparoscopic valvuloplasty with a Toupet fundoplication in patients with GERD with a maximum hiatal hernia of 3cm. In addition, an economic evaluation of the new intervention will be done in order to determine cost-effectiveness and costs per quality-adjusted life-year (QALY).
After failure on docetaxel, which has been the standard first line therapy for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), several treatment options are currently available. In retrospective studies, resistance has been described to two of the treatment options, enzalutamide and abiraterone, when a splice variant of the Androgen Receptor (AR-V7) is present on circulating tumor cells (CTCs). The investigators hypothesize that patients with AR-V7 positive CTCs do have a meaningful response to cabazitaxel.
Life expectancy of children with congenital heart disease (CHD) has increased dramatically during the past years, due to the successes of cardiac surgery. Nearly all of these children with CHD can be operated at young age and more than 90% reach adulthood. However, many adults with CHD are life-long affected by cardiac events, particularly arrhythmias and heart failure, putting them at risk of premature death. These events have a large impact on quality of life of patients and their families and merit life-long hospital visits in a medical center specialized in adult CHD. Especially for adults with CHD patient care with a smartphone is suited because of their young age and chronic condition. So far, data are lacking on smartphone interventions in patients with CHD.
