There are about 571 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Saudi Arabia. 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.
Primary Objective: Assess effectiveness of insulin glargine (U300) in achieving glycemic goal measured by hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c). Secondary Objectives: - Assess effectiveness in achieving glycemic goal measured by HbA1c; - Assess effectiveness on change in HbA1c, fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and self-monitored plasma glucose (SMPG) ; - Assess requirement for intensification of therapy by additional antidiabetics. - Assess incidence of hypoglycemia; - Assess other safety endpoints: adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs); - Assess change in body weight.
To evaluate the healing effect of advanced platelet-rich fibrin (blood clot charged with growth factors) taken from the patient own blood on the extraction site.
This is a two arm, double blind RCT comparing the use of a single dose ciprofloxacin prior to SWL to saline alone. The multicenter trial will be conducted with a pragmatic emphasis including both high volume and low volume sites internationally.
The standard-of-care preventive measures to stop early tooth decay from becoming worse is by fluoride application, diet counseling, and oral hygiene instructions. This standard way is not always successful. The purpose of this study is to compare standard-of-care preventive measures to stop further tooth decay to standard-of-care preventive measures in addition to a light curable resin modified glass ionomer (RMGI) varnish material (Vanish XT). The material is used for root surface sensitivity treatment, site specific protective coating for newly erupted teeth and other tooth surfaces including early tooth decay. To be in this study the child must be five to eight years old, medically healthy, attending the Pediatric Dentistry Clinics in King Abdulaziz University Dental Hospital (KAUDH),diagnosed to have at least two primary molars and/ or first permanent molars with early-stage caries (using bitewing radiographs, near infrared digital imaging transilluminaton (NIDIT), and visual assessment), and willing to return for follow up visits. If the child is eligible and the parents agree to the participation of their child in this study, the researcher will review the child's personal and medical history. The child's two included molars diagnosed with early-stage caries will be randomly assigned to one of two groups: Control Group: will receive standard-of-care preventive measures. Test Group: will receive RMGI varnish application plus the standard-of-care preventive measures. The child will be followed up at six months and 12 months. A dental examination will be done using the same methods used in the first examination to determine whether the caries has become deeper or not. The child may be withdrawn from the study at this point if the caries has become too deep and the tooth will then need a filling. The child's medical status will be up-dated, reinforcement of oral hygiene instruction and diet counseling will be provided, and fluoride varnish application will be applied to all the teeth in both six and 12 months follow-ups.The RMGI varnish will be reapplied to the test teeth at the six months follow up.
This research project is important because there is no gold standard to rely on regarding the effect of the extraction of primary canines as an interceptive treatment for children with mesioangular displaced canines. Further investigations are needed to assess the impact of extractions of primary canines approach on the eruption rate or change in position of mesioangular displaced canines by comparing to non-extraction control group in an attempt to overcome the deficiencies in study designs of previously published studies.
HV correction surgery using SERI appear to sufficiently reduce the severity of HV deformity in all radiological measurements (HVA, IMA, DMAA) and the correction of subluxation of the first MTP joint and the sesamoids. SERI technique is an easy, inexpensive, less invasive, more cosmetic, with shorter operative time and with minimal complication rates. To our knowledge, there is no report regarding HV treatment using SERI from Saudi Arabia or in any part of the Middle East. Therefore, this study conducted to determine the radiological measurements done preoperatively and compare the measurements done at one year postoperatively, recording the complication happened and measuring the cost effectiveness of such procedure.
One of the most serious sequelae of femoral neck fractures (FNFs) is avascular necrosis (AVN) and nonunion, and this translates to a significant morbidity and mortality. This study was conducted to determine the relationship between the etiologies and management of FNFs in our institution and its relationship to the development of AVN or nonunion.
This prospective study of comparing between Transrectal and transperineal prostate MRI targeted biopsy to provide evidence for clinicians to select the appropriate biopsy approach under different conditions.
NET originate in neuroendocrine cells throughout the body. The goal of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of the combination of everolimus and the intravenous radiolabeled Lu-177 DOTATATE Therapy as a 1st line therapy in unresectable well to moderately differentiated metastatic neuroendocrine tumors of all GI, lung and pancreatic origins. This is a phase 1 - 2 study. The phase 1 part involves finding the maximum tolerating dose (MTD) of Everolimus.
The aim of this study was to investigate potential benefits of adding augmented biofeedback training to standard therapy in improving visual motor integration (VMI) visual perception (VP) and motor coordination (MC) in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy .Participants were divided randomly into three equal groups. Group (A) received specially designed program of physical therapy intervention strategies to facilitate visual motor integration and visual perception over a period of three months. Group (B) received augmented biofeedback training only, and group (C) received augmented biofeedback training and same physical therapy program as group (A).
