There are about 3354 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Norway. 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 current research project aims at investigating whether it is possible to obtain an increase in physical activity among inpatients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders by the use of motivational interviewing and environmental interventions, and whether interventions will be associated with an increase in physical fitness and/or improvement in mental health. The Norwegian health care system operates with a catchment-area based organization, which make high levels of representability of patients possible. Patients will be recruited from intermediate-long term inpatient departments where patients typically have schizophrenia spectrum disorders and are admitted for longer periods. There are thus unique possibilities for coordinated efforts to motivate for and change dysfunctional habits.
The potential use of marine protein hydrolysates (MPH) as a supplement with similar or better health benefits than a regular white fish meal, can be regarded both cost-effective, environmental friendly and sustainable. The aim of this study is to investigate the potential effect of increasing/different doses of MPH supplement on urinary nitrogen retention in healthy elderly, to provide a basis for the optimalization of the daily dose for further use of MPH in clinical study protocols in elderly patients with sarcopenia, other inflammatory conditions or abnormal glucose metabolism.

The World Health Organization recommend all stable low birth weight neonates to have Skin-to-skin-Contact (SSC) after birth. Intermittent SSC is used in Sweden in neonatal units. Observations indicate that SSC makes neonates feel good. However, there is limited research done on SSC treatment on neonates born prior to week 33. The aim of this study is to investigate whether Skin-to-skin-Contact (SSC) leads to an improved physiological stabilization, altered epigenetic profile and improved longterm psychomotor outcome in neonates born in gestation age between week 28+0 - 32+6. This is a parallel, two-arm, multicentre, randomized controlled superiority trial. The two arms to be compared are a) immediate SSC with one parent/caregiver continous during the first 6 hours after birth and as much as possible during the first 72 hours, and b) conventional method of care during the same time.
Changes to gastric pH, gastric emptying time, gastrointestinal transit-time or the pre-systemic metabolizing effect of enzymes secreted in the mucosa may all alter the pharmacokinetics of medicines. These factors are potentially influenced by bariatric surgery. Little is so far known about how gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy impacts the biological availability of medication. In this study the pharmacokinetic effects of bariatric surgery on metoprolol are investigated.

PATHWAYS is a 3-year project that directly contributes to the 2014 Work Programme by focusing on action 220.127.116.11 regarding the development of innovative approaches to promote the professional integration and reintegration of people with chronic diseases and improve their employability. The main aim of PATHWAYS is to provide evidence-based recommendations for the effective professional integration of people with chronic health conditions in Europe
This trial will compare the clinical response to intramuscular and intranasal naloxone in pre-hospital opioid overdoses. Objective of the study is to measure and evaluate clinical response (return of spontaneous respiration within 10 minutes of naloxone administration) to a new nasal naloxone formulation in real opioid overdoses in the pre-hospital environment. The aim is to demonstrate that intranasal administration of naloxone is not clinically inferior to intramuscular administration, which is now standard treatment of care.
This randomized clinical study aims to compare success and survival of two different ceramic tooth restoration materials. The hypothesis for the study is that fluoride treated zirconia will retain as good as lithium disilicate reinforced glass ceramic when cemented by the same resin cement. One group of patients will receive a restoration in fluoride treated zirconia, the other group will receive a restoration in reinforced glass ceramic. All restorations will be cemented in the same manner. At 3, 6, 12 and 24 months the participants will be examined.
The purpose of this project is to assess if playing a newly developed videogame that require physical activity (e.g. exergame) can lead to health benefits. The project will include 50 adult participants that are not particularly physically active. They will be randomized into two groups where one group will be given free access to the exergame for 6 months. The physical fitness (maximal oxygen consumption), blood markers of cardiometabolic health and body composition of the subjects will be tested before, mid-ways and after the intervention period. Also, the participants gaming frequency will be registered throughout the 6-month period. Aim of this study is to investigate if access to this game can provide health benefits for individuals who are not motivated to take part in regular physical activity.
