There are about 27 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Oman. 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.
Physicians know that their patients can react differently to the same medical treatment: for some of them, the drug will prove inefficient, whereas for others it might provoke side-effects, sometimes rather serious. Such differences in response to drug intake are due to several factors, of which molecular variations in specific genes, named " ADME " (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion). This project aims at investigating the evolutionary mechanisms responsible for the diversity of ADME genes in human populations. Because of their role at the interface between the organism and its chemical environment, ADME genes are likely targets of recent selective pressures linked to changes in the environments in which humans evolved, such as changes in dietary habits for instance. The aim of this project is to study the diversity of ADME genes and of their expression in five populations located along a latitudinal axis that extends from East Africa to Central Europe, passing through the Arabian Peninsula and the Mediterranean area, so as to take into account environmental factors that might have influenced the evolution of this diversity. This project is thus intended to evidence the evolutionary mechanisms that shaped genomic regions that are functionally important from the clinical and epidemiological point of view. Moreover, it will allow us to extend the knowledge of human molecular diversity and its evolution to a key-region of the peopling history of our species.
140 SCD patients [70 on Hydroxyurea] will receive Omega-3 capsules whereas another 140 SCD patients [70 on Hydroxyurea] will receive placebo and will be recruited from the Sultan Qaboos University Hospital [SQUH] haematology specialty clinics. Patients will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive placebo or Omega-3 for 52 weeks. The aim is to investigate the therapeutic potential of omega-3 fatty acids in the prevention of vaso-occlusive crisis in Omani patients with sickle cell disease[SCD].
A Multi-Centre, Phase II, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to investigate Efficacy and Safety of Sevuparin Infusion for the Management of Acute Vaso-Occlusive Crisis (VOC) in Subjects with Sickle-Cell Disease (SCD).
This long-term study will provide Elaprase treatment to children enrolled in this study and will utilize data from both enrolled patients and Hunter Outcome Survey (HOS) patient registry data to conduct the primary growth analysis to assess changes in height and weight in patients with Mucopolysaccharidosis II (Hunter syndrome) MPS II.
This is a randomized, open-label, multicenter, two arm, phase II study to evaluate treatment compliance and change in serum ferritin of a deferasirox granule formulation and a deferasirox DT formulation in children and adolescents aged ≥ 2 and < 18 years at enrollment with any transfusion-dependent anemia requiring chelation therapy due to iron overload, to demonstrate the effect of improved compliance on iron burden. Randomization will be stratified by age groups (2 to <10 years, 10 to <18 years) and prior iron chelation therapy (Yes/ No). There will be two study phases which include a 1 year core phase where patients will be randomized to a 48 week treatment period to either Deferasirox DT or granules, and an optional extension phase where all patients will receive the granules up to 5 years. Patients who demonstrated benefit to granules or DT in the core phase, and/or express the wish to continue in the optional extension phase on granules, will be offered this possibility until there is local access to the new formulation (granules or FCT) or up to 5 years, whichever occurs first.
DISCOVER is a Non Interventional Study study to describe the disease management patterns and clinical evolution over three years in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients initiating a second line anti-diabetic treatment.
The purpose of this study is to document the pharmacological treatment strategies used in treatment naïve and previously treated relapsed/refractory iNHL/CLL patients in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region. This study will also record encountered tumor subtype and stage and the instituted pharmacological treatments, as well as assess the clinical outcomes of treatments.
The e-Ultimaster will further validate the safety and efficacy of Ultimaster DES system in unselected patients representing everyday clinical practice. Also the study will assess the impact of non-compliance with dual antiplatelet therapy, one month after stent implementation (frequently observed in every day clinical practice), on stent thrombosis.
Observational, open label, prospective, multi-center, post-marketing drug surveillance program.
The main purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the study drug known as prasugrel for the reduction of Vaso-Occlusive Crisis events in pediatric participants with sickle cell disease. The study will also investigate reduction in daily pain in children who have sickle cell disease.
