There are about 534 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.
Gait training in stroke is a complex process of motor learning although restoring patients ability to walk would not prepare the individual with the challenges faced in the real environment. The aim is not simply walking in controlled environment, but to achieve dynamic walking. Dynamic walking is the ability of an individual to adjust to the changing surfaces and terrains. thereby returning to achieve active participation in the community. Hence, recovery of walking ability is the primary goal when planning treatment for patients with stroke.
always reliable.Pain is an important diagnostic tool in dentistry. The type of treatment, extent of treatment and, sometimes, even the decision on whether to treat or not is dependent on the pain history obtained from the patient.The absence of an accurate description of dental pain is a factor that severely limits dental treatment planning in children with CP. The aim of this study is to study to evaluate the salivary cytokine profile of children with CP who have severe dental problems and to compare this to verbal children who have a similar dental profile.
The use of alternative therapy, particularly herbal treatment is becoming prevalent among patients. Many herbs are in-use for various ailments such as diabetes, digestive problems, fever, hepatitis and hypertension etc. The common belief is, herbs are safe and easy to access as compared to conventional therapy, however, most of the studies reported different side effects which may be toxic at times. These adverse effects are mostly due to incorrect use or lack of patient education. Parsley is a plant with antioxidant, diuretic and antimicrobial properties. Literature reported use of parsley as a diuretic by different communities in throughout the world. In vitro studies in animal have also reported the diuretic effect as well as proposed mechanisms for the use of parsley as diuretic however none of the studies have been conducted to investigate the diuretic effect of parsley in humans. This study aims to evaluate the diuretic and hence antihypertensive effect of parsley in hypertensive patients.
This study aims to investigate the relative effect of handgrip strengthening exercise in improving function, pain, strength, and active range of motion (AROM) of the shoulder among patients with primary sub-acromial impingement syndrome (SAIS).
Stress affects the health and is prevalent among medicine and pharmacy students. A number of factors such as busy schedules, course load and lack of recreational time during semesters as well as exams, have been reported to be associated with stress. Study reports that the use of aroma oils especially those with relaxant properties can alleviate the level of stress. This study aims to investigate the effects of aroma oils in stress during exams in pharmacy students.
The purpose of this observational study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of biosimilar Infliximab in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in Saudi Arabia where no visits or intervention(s) additional to the daily practice will be performed.
Saudi Arabia has the highest prevalence (24%) of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) among the modern nation states in the world. In addition, majority of Saudi diabetic patient do not have their blood glucose controlled. Data suggests that diet, rich in olive oil and nuts, significantly reduces fasting plasma glucose and HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin). Olive oil has been associated with weight reduction as well as improvements in lipid profile (increase in high density (HDL) and decrease in low-density lipoprotein (LDL)). No randomized controlled trial has specifically examined the effect of olive oil as a supplement on blood glucose among diabetics. The study objective is to test the effect of daily consumption (30 mL) of extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) on HbA1c among patients with type 2 diabetes.
This is a multicenter, international, double-blind randomized Phase III study to evaluate the pathological complete response (pCR) according to Chevalier classification between Fulvestrant® and the combination of Fulvestrant® plus Palbociclib as neoadjuvant therapy of hormone-sensitive patients with operable luminal breast cancer. Eligible patients will be assessed upfront using the OncotypeDX® molecular test (Recurrence Score <31).
Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) was introduced in 1990 for the first time as a minimally invasive procedure instead of the conventional open surgical repair, with the aim to decrease morbidity and mortality . Nowadays EVAR has become an acceptable management for patients with infra-renal aortic aneurysms (AAA) . A lot of anesthetic techniques have been used successfully for EVAR. EVAR requires sedative analgesic medications to achieve an acceptable level of comfort to the patient and cardiorespiratory stability. This is prospective randomized single blinded study of patients presenting with aorto-iliac aneurysm who will undergo EVAR. Patient's demographic data will be assessed, as well as clinical presentation, intraoperative complications. 30 patients undergoing elective EVAR will be included and will be divided equally into 2 groups. First group is the psoas compartment block (PCB) (15 patients): 30 ml of bupivacaine 0.25% will be infused over 3 minutes at the anatomical landmark. Second group is the LA and remifentanil group (LR) (15 patients): lidocaine 5 ml of 2% will be injected subcutaneous as local infiltration then remifentanil infusion with rate 0.03-0.1 μg kg−1 min−1. to achieve visual analog scale (VAS) 3 or less. Vital date will be recorded as baseline then every 5 minutes till the end of the procedure. VAS will be recorded as baseline then every 5 minutes till the end of the procedure. Also stress response which will be measured subjectively as vital data and VAS and objectively as cortisol level in the blood which will be measured as base line and immediate after the end of the procedure.
Background: The foot is considered a sensitive structure of musculoskeletal system that bears significant loads of the body weight during walking. So, the evaluation of the body weights on planter pressure distribution during walking among adult obese subjects is very critical for foot dysfunctions.The aims:To evaluate the planter pressure distribution in normal ,over weight and obese adult during dynamic situation. Subjects and Methods: A one-hundred fifty normal adult (male and female) subjects will be recruited in this study. They will be divided into Group-I: includes 50 normal subjects Group-II: includes 50 of over weight subjects.group-III 50 obese adult subjects The all three groups will be detected according to the individual BMI. The details of the study will be explained to each participant and a consent form was signed by each subject.Each participant should be free from any musculoskeletal or locomotors disorders Conclusion: Results of this study can help physical therapists to understand the foot pressure distribution map for normal , over weight and obese and non-obese subjects to detect any foot abnormalities and detect any causes of foot dysfunctions.
