There are about 2182 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Romania. 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.
IPILIMUMAB Extended Access Program for patients who received chemotherapy and / or radiation therapy before the protocol, before or after the operation.
The study investigates the effect of 4 weeks of twice daily treatment of four different doses of RPL554 (a phosphodiesterase [PDE]3/4 inhibitor) or placebo in patients with moderate to severe COPD. Patients will be equally allocated to one of the five treatment options.
Renal excretion is a minor elimination route of telotristat etiprate. So this trial is intended to assess the drug behaviour in subjects with decreased renal function. This is a staged study with Part B contingent upon the results of Part A. Part A will enrol a total of 16 subjects, eight with severely impaired renal function and eight healthy subjects. Part B with enrol a total of 16 subjects, eight subjects in each additional renal function group, i.e. mildly impaired renal function group and moderately impaired group.
A randomized control trial comparing a standard bowel preparation for colonoscopy with an individualized bowel preparation strategy based on patient characteristics
Pilot, open non-controlled trial to assess the feasibility of implementing objective parameters as primary endpoints in a clinical trial with patients affected by knee osteoarthritis.
This is a prospective single center open label randomized controlled trial aiming to assess the effectiveness and safety of a low protein diet (0.6 g/kg-day, mainly vegetarian) supplemented with ketoanalogues of essential amino-acids (sLPD) as compared to a mild protein restriction (0.8 g/kg-day, MPD) in reducing Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) progression, with a planned total duration is of 18 months. Adult diabetic patients with CKD stage 4+ [estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) using the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease 4-variable (MDRD4) formula <30 mL/min per year], with stable renal function (historical reduction of eGFR of < 10 ml/min-year) , proteinuria > 3g/g creatininuria and good nutritional status (SGA A) will be enrolled.
The primary objective of this study is to show superiority of vilaprisan in the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) in subjects with uterine fibroids compared to placebo. The secondary objectives of this study are to additionally evaluate the efficacy and safety of vilaprisan in subjects with uterine fibroids.
The objectives of Sub-Study 1 are to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of risankizumab as induction treatment in subjects with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC), and to identify the appropriate induction dose of risankizumab for further evaluation in Sub-Study 2. The objective of Sub-Study 2 is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of risankizumab compared to placebo in inducing clinical remission in subjects with moderately to severely active UC.
Recent studies have shown that the systemic inflammation caused by periodontal disease (PD) can determine important changes in the coronary arteries, favoring atherosclerosis progression and development of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). The aim of ATHERODENT study is to assess the interrelation between PD, inflammation and progression of coronary atherosclerosis in patients with ACS. Material and methods: This case-control observational study will enroll 100 patients (group 1 - ACS and associated PD, and group 2 -ACS and no PD), in whom the following data will be collected: (1) demographic and clinical data, (2) cardiovascular risk factors, (3) full characterization of PD markers, (4) systemic inflammatory biomarkers, (5) imaging biomarkers derived from transthoracic echocardiography, computed tomography, coronary angiography, optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound, and (6) assessment of the presence of specific oral bacteria in samples of coronary plaques collected by coronary atherectomy, which will be performed during percutaneous revascularization interventions, when indicated in selected cases, in the atherectomy sub-study. The follow-up will be performed at 1, 3, 6, 12, 15, 18 and 24 months. The primary endpoint of the study will be represented by the rate of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE rates) in PD vs non-PD patients and in correlation with: (1) the level of systemic inflammation triggered by PD and/or by ACS at baseline; (2) the vulnerability degree of atheromatous plaques in the coronary tree (culprit and non-culprit lesions); and (3) the presence and burden of oral bacteria in atheromatous plaques. Secondary endpoints will be represented by: (1) the rate of progression of vulnerability degree of non-culprit coronary plaques; (2) the rate of progression of atheromatous burden and calcium scoring of the coronary tree; and (3) the rate of occurrence of left ventricular remodeling and postinfarction heart failure.
In the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) this bedside method of assessing lung congestion could be useful in a better management of the critically ill patients with a wide range of respiratory failure causes (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, COPD, acute pulmonary edema, pneumonia etc.). Fluid management is a key issue in the ICU where patients are either hemodynamic unstable and/or mechanically ventilated. A randomized study is proposed where in the interventional arm the fluid management (volume replacement, diuretics, use of vasopressors) will be guided using the BLS as a sign of pulmonary congestion.
