There are about 3456 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 aim of the study is to compare early performance measures and economic aspects of organized breast cancer screening for women screened using digital breast tomosynthesis+synthetic mammography (DBT+SM) to women with a prior DBT+SM or digital mammography (DM) from To-Be 1 (NCT02835625).
The aim of this study is to investigate the potential effect of a marine protein hydrolysate (MPH) supplement before a meal on postprandial glucose tolerance in healthy subjects, to achieve more knowledge on this presumed beneficial, blood glucose lowering effect
This study aims to compare the treatment results of HIFU and Radical prosatectomy
The purpose of this trial is to assess patient important benefits and harms of IV fluid restriction vs. standard care fluid therapy in patients with septic shock.
About 5000 total knee arthroplasties (TKA) are performed annually in Norway. Pain and reduced physical function is present in patients operated with TKA up to a year after surgery and about one of five patients are not satisfied with the outcome from TKA surgery. The use of tourniquet during surgery may also have impact on pain and physical function. Whether TKA surgery should be performed with or without the use of tourniquet, is a much-debated issue in orthopedic surgery today, and there is still no consensus in this field. This study will investigate early muscle strength and power recovery, neuromuscular recordings, neuronal changes and patient reported outcome measures after surgery with tourniquet versus not tourniquet.The findings in this study are expected to have implications for rehabilitation and the outcome of the TKA surgery.
Urology departments from all over the world are invited to join the Global Prevalence Study on Infections in Urology (GPIU-study) and the GPIU Prostate Biopsy Side Study. The GPIU study is taking part annually in November since 2003. European urologists were the first group of specialist to register hospital acquired infections on an international level. More than 20.000 patients have been screened and more than 2000 patients are currently listed in this database. Why? Infectious complications after urological procedures, such as prostate biopsy and increasing antimicrobial resistance are posing significant threats to modern urology The GPIU-study is a combined quality improvement initiative and a scientific study. Once the participating departments have filled in the report forms they will get access to statistics showing the accumulated results for all participating hospitals. The participants can anonymously compare their own results with hospitals from all over the World. The GPIU-study application has been designed as an instrument to ongoing follow-up of the development of important factors related to infection on international, national and local levels. Take responsibility for the future of urology - join the GPIU-studies! http://gpiu.esiu.org Prof. Dr. Florian M.E.

The purpose of this project is to assess if playing a newly developed videogame that require physical activity (e.g. exergame) can lead to increased physical activity and health benefits in children and adolescents. The project will include 52 children and adolescents, between 12-18 years, who are not sufficiently active according to current guidelines (< 60 min daily moderate/vigorous activity) and report to play video games for more than 10 hours per week. The physical fitness (maximal oxygen consumption), blood markers of cardiometabolic health, body composition and objectively measured physical activity will be tested before, mid-ways and after the intervention period. Also, the participants gaming frequency will be registered throughout the 24 week period. Aim of this study is to investigate if access to this game can provide health benefits for children and adolescents who are not motivated to take part in regular physical activity.
Iron deficiency is prevalent in heart transplant recipients, and may be associated with reduced functional capacity. The IronIC trial is designed to assess the effect of intravenous iron isomaltoside on exercise capacity, muscle strength, cognition and quality of life in iron-deficient heart transplant recipients
The overall aim is to investigate effects of saturated versus polyunsaturated fat on glycemic regulation and satiety in a postprandial study with healthy individuals. The potential effects will be related to changes in gut microbiota, the circulating levels of short chain fatty acids, inflammation and gene expression in peripheral mononuclear blood cells.
An increasing proportion of women with heart disease now go through pregnancy and childbirth. More knowledge about the risk of complications and adverse outcomes for the mother and the baby is needed to guide clinical care in this diverse patient group. The purpose of this study is to, in a cohort of pregnant women with heart disease; - determine fetal growth, and risk of fetal growth restriction and preterm birth - determine whether maternal blood biomarkers are associated with development of preeclampsia, the time of delivery and maternal and perinatal adverse outcomes - determine the risk of hypertensive pregnancy complications The expected outcome of the project is to increase the knowledge of optimal diagnosis and treatment of women with heart disease that go through pregnancy to be able to improve clinical care and the outcomes for mother and baby.
