There are about 481 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.
This is a phase IIIb, single arm, open-label, multi-center study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of emicizumab in participants with congenital hemophilia A who have documented inhibitors against Factor VIII (FVIII) at enrollment. Approximately 200 participants, aged 12 or older, will be enrolled in this study and are expected to be enrolled at approximately 85 sites globally. Participants will receive an initial weekly dose of prophylactic emicizumab subcutaneously for 4 weeks, followed by a weekly maintenance dose subcutaneously for the remainder of the 2-year treatment period.
Comparing the beneficial effect of cord milking versus deferred cord clamping in preterm neonates. A randomized controlled trial
This study is a parallel group randomized controlled trial among female university students designed to test the effect of a physical activity intervention on daily walking. Both groups will receive messages 2-3 times per week via WhatsApp. Intervention group will receive orientation and wear a pedometer for the study period. The follow-up duration is 3 months.
This Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of atezolizumab (MPDL3280A, an anti-programmed death-ligand 1 [PD-L1] antibody) administered in combination with paclitaxel compared with placebo in combination with paclitaxel in participants with previously untreated, inoperable locally advanced or metastatic, centrally confirmed TNBC. Participants will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive atezolizumab or placebo plus paclitaxel until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity or end of study, whichever occurs first (maximum up to approximately 45 months).
Noninvasive brain stimulation (NIBS) refers to a group of modalities that are used to induce electric currents to and within the brain for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. Two major types of NIBS techniques are currently in use on humans for clinical and research applications: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Transcranial Current Stimulation (tCS). Moreover, the studies evaluating the clinical benefit of mental practice in stroke so far are mostly small feasibility studies, while the few randomized controlled trials reported had relatively small sample sizes. As such, the evidence for mental practice in the treatment of movement disorders following stroke, and other neurological conditions, remains somewhat anecdotal. Purpose of our research is to show the effect of combining brain stimulation and mental imagery on functional recovery of upper limb in stroke.
Keratoconus is a ocular disease classified under ectatic diseases which often results in bilateral and asymmetrical corneal distortion. It usually affects patients at young age and can cause severe visual loss. The overall goal of this study is to assess the prevalence of keratoconus (KC) in children and adolescents in various regions of the world based on modern tomographic imaging methods, and to verify whether the occurrence rates reported from literature should be corrected. Our hypothesis is that the prevalence of the disease is much higher than that traditionally reported. At each site, corneal tomography examinations (Pentacam) will be performed bilaterally in children and adolescents, who are not ill or with any ophthalmological symptom. The population to be studied will be composed of children and adolescents on medical visits for non-ophthalmologic reasons, aged between 6 and 20 years. Multiple cities, from different continents (North America, South America, Asia and Europe) will participate.
Changes in alveolar bone following teeth extraction can compromise implant placement. Socket preservation (alveolar ridge preservation) is considered as a surgical procedure employed to preserve the ridge volume within the envelope existing at the time of extraction.The ultimate aim of such procedure is to compensate the expected amount of horizontal and vertical alveolar bone resorption. In order to better understand which socket preservation materials might be more effective for ridge preservation and to strengthen the evidence that is relevant to the clinicians' choice of socket preservation materials, two different materials were compared in a randomized controlled approach. (1) Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBM) Putty and Putty with Chips allograft covered by collagen membrane, and (2) Deprotonated bovine bone xenograft covered by collagen membrane. The independent variable is the grafting material while the dependent variables are the change in socket height, and width; the ability of implant placement without the need for grafting and the success rate of implants at the time of loading.
College students from physical therapy department will be assigned into four groups. Participants will be tested for trunk extensors endurance and will be given endurance training program to do at home for 6 to 8 weeks. Spinal mobility and lower extremity mobility will be measured. Isokinetic outcome measures for extension and flexion at two different speeds will also be measured at baseline, after 6 and 8 weeks.
This study investigate the short term effect of Maitland in comparison to Mulligan mobilization with sub-acute and chronic non specific neck pain to improve neck pain, pain pressure threshold, rang of motion, joint position sense, disability, and to evaluate the interaction with psychological factors. Study design: experimental study
Cardioplegic arrest is an essential part of cardiac surgery which aims to allow myocardial preservation and minimise myocardial swelling ,while providing a motionless and bloodless field ,.Blood cardioplegia has proven its efficacy for several decades and surgeons are still preferring to use it for myocardial protection of paediatric cardiac surgery ,although it is thought to be more time consuming since it is given with interrupted doses, . Even when advancement has came along the field of myocardial protection and cardioplegia solutions with the introduction of Bretschneider Histidine-Tryptophan-Ketoglutarate solution ,custodiol ,in 1970 ,which is given as a single dose and believed to be convenient, simple to deliver , and less time consuming . Many Surgeons haven't change their practice possibly due to paucity of studies comparing cardioplegia solutions in paediatric cardiac surgery and conflicting reports regarding the superiority of different cardioplegia solution.The investigators aim to provide evidence that will help paediatric cardiac surgeons to choose the optimal solution for their practice .
