There are about 1833 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Portugal. 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 investigators aim to test an evidence-based intervention, allocated to a mobile app designed to parents and their children with 3 to 6 years old, identified by family doctors or nurses at well-child care visits as overweight or obese for age. This intervention aims to improve parent's perceptions and attitudes regarding children's weight status and food intake, leading to better dietary intake and children's' eating behaviors through positive parental child-feeding practices. In this study, the investigators aim to assess the feasibility of the intervention and explore its impact on the beliefs and attitudes of parents.
This study aimed to translate and adapt to portuguese an original british instrument useful to measure respiratory patients' self-efficacy specific to the context of Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
This First In Human study is aimed to evaluate the safety and initial efficacy of the Vibe delivery system in delivering Botox (TM) to the bladder wall in patients diagnosed with overactive bladder.
The thoracic erector spinae plane (ESP) block was first described by Forero et al in September 2016. In their article, the authors presented the possibility of using this block as an option for the control of thoracic neuropathic pain as well as post-operative thoracic pain. The ESP block is done by administering local anesthetic in the plane deep to the erector spinae muscle, which spreads through the costotransverse foramen to the dorsal and ventral roots of the spinal nerves. Since then, there have been reports about the successful use of this block for bariatric surgery, ventral hernia repair, radical mastectomy, rib fractures, major abdominal surgery and hip replacement. However, there are no studies in the literature comparing the efficacy of the ESP block to other nerve blocks. The purpose of this study is to compare the post-operative analgesic efficacy of the ESP block to the fascia iliaca (FI) block after total hip replacement (THR).
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, especially in Western countries. CRC is currently considered a preventable disease and screening has been endorsed by several societies, since it has been shown that screening and surveillance are effective in reducing both CRC incidence and mortality. However, recently, concern has risen regarding colonoscopy effectiveness, especially in the right colon. The most accepted explanation for this effectiveness variability is attributed to sessile serrated lesions (SSL), which are more frequent in the proximal colon, more difficult to detect because of their flat morphology and associated with interval CRC, which is the occurrence of CRC after screening colonoscopy and before the next scheduled procedure. Several techniques are emerging to increase the sensitivity of colonoscopy for pre-cancerous lesions, especially adenomas. Recently an endoscopic cap, the Endocuff, was developed to improve adenoma detection. Several studies demonstrated improved adenoma detection with Endocuff-assisted colonoscopy when compared with conventional colonoscopy. Still, the available data for its' role in detecting SSL is very limited. The aim of this randomized controlled trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of Endocuff-assisted colonoscopy in detection of colorectal SSL.
This is a multicenter, open-label, extension study to evaluate the long-term safety, tolerability, and efficacy of treatment with AG-348 in participants who were previously enrolled in Study AG348-C-006 or Study AG348C-007.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of treating participants with treatment-resistant depression (TRD) who have failed at least 2 (and no more than 6) prior antidepressant (AD) treatments in the current moderate to severe depressive episode with flexibly-dosed esketamine nasal spray plus a newly initiated oral standard-of-care AD compared with placebo nasal spray plus a newly-initiated standard-of-care oral AD, in achieving remission and staying relapse-free after remission.
The objectives of this study are: 1. To assess the tolerability and safety of cytisine as a single oral dose. 2. To define the Cmax levels associated to the occurrence of dose-limiting adverse events.
An aerobic physical exercise protocol will be applied to patients admitted in ward due to decompensated heart failure, in order to validate the efficacy and safety of physical exercise in this phase of clinical stabilization, through the said training protocol - ERIC program.
End stage renal disease patients (ESRD) should be educated to take care of their arteriovenous fistula (AVF). Educational programs should have clear objectives and the interventions should be well defined. Therefore, assessing the interventions that can have the strongest impact on the patient's acquisition of self-care behaviors with AVF is extremely important. The aim is to assess the effectiveness of a structured intervention on the frequency of self-care behaviors with AVF by patients with ESRD on hemodialysis (HD).
