There are about 3542 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.
Phase II, single-arm study to assess the safety and efficacy of osimertinib (80 mg, orally, once daily) as first-line therapy in patients with EGFR mutation-positive, locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who have not previously treated with an epidermal growth factor tyrosine kinase inhibitor agent.
There is an urgent need to implement novel diet approaches to combat the increasing rates of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). The primary aim of this study is to establish the feasibility of time-restricted eating in pregnancy, to prepare for future larger controlled trials in this research project to determine the efficacy of time-restricted eating in women at risk of GDM. Expectations: 1. Women who have an increased risk of GDM will be able to adhere to time reduced eating during pregnancy. 2. Time reduced eating will improve short-term glycemic control in pregnancy.
The use of natural bioactive products for prevention and treatment of a wide spectrum of conditions, including gastrointestinal disorders and conditions is well known. Based on current evidences, the scientific validity of such products is limited. However, there is sufficient preliminary data to indicate that bioactive compounds may be novel for potentially clinical use, thus further clinical trials investigating effect are needed. This trial is meant to evaluate the effect of an marine protein hydrolysate (MPH) supplement on composition of microbiota, inflammatory markers and symptom severity in people diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome.
The intervention consists of a digital decision support system delivering a weekly plan of suggested activities that the participant can use to self-manage their low back pain (LBP) via an smartphone app.
This study aims to validate the use of contralateral designs in studies of effects of resistance exercise. It will recruit healthy young (18-35 years) individuals, which will be allocated to 4 experimental groups. In two of the experimental groups, 3x10 or 6x10 repetitions of heavy resistance exercise on one leg will be combined with no training of the other leg for 7 weeks. In the third group, 3x10 repetitions of heavy resistance exercise on one leg will be combined with 6x10 repetitions of heavy resistance exercise on the other leg for 7 weeks. In the fourth group, which serves as a control group, a period of no training (similar in length to the training period of groups 1-3; 7 weeks), before both legs will train 3x10 repetitions of heavy resistance exercise in an unilateral manner.
In autoimmune adrenal insufficiency, or Addison's disease (AD), the immune system attacks the adrenal cortex. As a result, the adrenal cells producing hormones such as cortisol and aldosterone are destroyed, leaving the body with insufficient levels to meet its needs. The common perception is that upon diagnosis of Addison's disease, basically all adrenal hormone production has ceased. There have, however, been found a few individuals who preserve some residual secretion of cortisol even years after diagnosis. The objectives of this study is to find out how common it is, and to explore if residual function have impact on patient outcome. That is, do patients with and without residual function differ when it comes to quality of life, working ability, medication dosages, and risk of adrenal crisis?
Does sepsis response team in the emergency department increase the portion of sepsis patient who receive adequate treatment within one hour?
There is increasing recognition of the need to stabilize sleep-wake cycles in individuals with major mental disorders. As such, clinicians and researchers advocate for the use of interventions targeted at sleep and circadian dysrhythmias as an adjunct to the standard treatments offered for acute illness episodes of a broad range of diagnoses. To determine the trans-diagnostic generalizability of chronotherapy, the investigators will explore the benefits of admitting individuals with major mental disorders to an acute psychiatric inpatient unit where changes in light exposure are integrated into the therapeutic environment. A two-arm pragmatic effectiveness randomized controlled treatment trial, where individuals admitted for inpatient psychiatric care will be allocated to a ward with blue depleted evening light or to a ward with the same layout and facilities but lacking the new lighting technology. The trial will test whether the experimental lighting conditions offer any additional benefits beyond those associated with usual treatment in an acute psychiatric inpatient unit. The main objectives are to examine any differences between groups in the mean duration of hospitalization in days. Additional analyses will compare groups differences in sleep, functioning, symptoms, medication usage, and side-effects and whether length of stay is associated with stability of sleep-wake cycles and circadian rhythms. Given this unique research opportunity, ancillary investigations will determine any benefits according to diagnostic subgroups and potential drawbacks such as any adverse effects on the well-being of professionals working across both wards.
Chest pain is a common cause of visits in the Emergency Room and General Practice, and is most commonly connected as a symptom of coronary disease, as for instance angina pectoris and acute myocardial infarct. Approximately 75-80% of these patients are not diagnosed with coronary disease or other cardiac findings. However, many of these patients still report chest pain and worries about cardiac disease. This study is based on patients that are referred to a CT-examination of the coronary arteries on the background of chest pain, where the CT-examination shows normal coronary arteries. The study aims to evaluate whether providing an intervention to this group of patients has an effect on patient satisfaction, patient's worry of cardiac disease and incidence of chest pain. The intervention group will be compared with a similar group going through the same CT-examination, but is receiving the examination result from their regular general practitioner (RGP), which is considered standard care. The hypothesis is that patients with chest pain with no coronary findings receiving extended information before getting the normal examination results experience a better patient satisfaction than those receiving the examination result from their RGP.
The study aims to investigate the Norwegian adult achondroplasia population regarding degree and extent of symptoms and clinical manifestations and how this population manages in daily life, including demographics, physical function, and work participation.
