NCT ID: NCT03764631 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2

Post-authorization Safety Study in Type 2 Diabetic Patients in Saudi Arabia Treated With Empagliflozin to Assess the Incidence of Ketoacidosis, Severe Complications of Urinary Tract Infection, Volume Depletion, and Dehydration

Start date: September 27, 2018
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The objectives of this study are to assess the risk of ketoacidosis, severe urinary tract infections, volume depletion, and dehydration associated in patients with T2DM initiating Empagliflozin compared to patient initiating a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors over a 12-month period of follow-up, including the month of Ramadan

NCT ID: NCT03762642 Completed - Breast Cancer Clinical Trials

Trends of Mastectomy and Breast-Conserving Surgery in Female Breast Cancer Patients

Start date: July 17, 2017
Phase:
Study type: Observational

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women across the world, accounting for 25.2% of cancer cases among females and 14.7% of cancer-related deaths among females worldwide. The survival rates are markedly lower in the developing countries compared to developed countries, as well as the age at diagnosis. Core management of breast cancer includes surgical removal of the tumor either by breast-conserving surgery (BCS) or mastectomy (removal of the whole breast). Choosing between these two procedures may be influenced by factors that have yet to be studied in Saudi Arabia. The investigators aimed to determine the prevalence of BCS and mastectomy and the factors that may influence the choice of procedure. This retrospective study was carried out by reviewing the records of female breast cancer patients who underwent BCS or mastectomy at King Abdulaziz University Hospital between 2009 to June 2017, excluding those with metastasis (distant spread of the cancer) or recurrence. Using frequencies for the rate, and multivariate tests, the investigators analyzed different demographic, clinicopathological, and radiological factors to detect correlations with procedure choice.

NCT ID: NCT03759080 Completed - Motor Activity Clinical Trials

The Effects of Mental Practice Combined With Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation on Muscle Strength of Upper Limb and Hand Grip

Start date: May 8, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The effects of mental practice combined with proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation on muscle strength of upper limb and hand grip were measured in 30 healthy female students with right dominant hand, they were recruited from College of Applied Medical Sciences, Jazan University. Their age ranged from19 to 26 years old. Subjects were randomly assigned to either proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) group or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation with mental practice (PNFMP) group. PNF group: 15 individuals, these subjects received only PNF training. PNFMP: 15 individuals, these subjects received PNF training combined with mental practice.

NCT ID: NCT03753165 Enrolling by invitation - Clinical trials for Chronic Low Back Pain

Effect of High Intensity Interval Exercise on Chronic Low Back Pain Patients

CLBP
Start date: September 1, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Patients with low back pain (LBP) often report an overall reduced physical activity and fitness that could consequently lead to an altered autonomic balance. Dysregulation of autonomic nervous system (ANS) is also implicated to be an underlying cause in the initiation and persistence of chronic muscle pain.High intensity interval exercise (HIIE) is a newer modality where short bursts of high intensity exercise are interspersed with rest intervals. Method:Study Design: It is a single blinded randomised clinical trial.Sample Size: Experimental Group (HIIE+ standard regular physiotherapy) = 40 Positive Control Group (standard regular physiotherapy) = 40 After the ethical approval of Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, Dammam, eighty (80) patients with nonspecific CLBP (either sex, age range 18-65 years years) will be recruited. These patients, with mild to moderate disability/pain according to Oswestry index, will be referred from the orthopedics clinic, rheumatologist, neurology, rehabilitation specialist, to the physiotherapy department. Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) will be completed for all CLBP patients. Pre and post assessment includes pain intensity, disability, resting heart rate (HRrest) and blood pressure, maximum heart rate (HRmax) after graded maximal exercise, heart rate recovery after graded maximal exercise (HRR). Tests of autonomic function will be done by recording ECG and analyzing he ECG for variability in heart rate (HRV), the Expiratory/inspiratory ratio in deep breathing (HRVdb) and baroreceptor sensitivity (BRS) at rest. Additionally each subject will be exposed to an orthostatic challenge and his responses will be evaluated. The recording will be done first in supine position and then asking the patient to quickly stand up and remain standing for 5 min. Data will be entered in Microsoft excel and comparisons and correlations will be done using either excel or SPSS version 20.

NCT ID: NCT03752788 Completed - Stroke Clinical Trials

Dual-Task Training With Different Priority Instructional Sets on the Gait Parameters in Patients With Chronic Stroke

Start date: May 15, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Balance is controlled through a complex process involving sensory, visual, vestibular and cerebral functioning which get affected by various neurological disorders such as in stroke. Different types of exercises are designed to target to cope up with the imbalance developed due to these neurological disorders. This study aimed to compare the efficacy of dual-task training using two different priority instructional sets in improving gait parameters such as self-selected velocity, fast speed, step length, and stride length in chronic stroke patients.

NCT ID: NCT03752424 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Infection, Bacterial

Topical Silver Nanoparticles for Microbial Activity

Start date: January 13, 2019
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

Silver nanoparticles are one of most nanoparticles use nowadays in the research area because it has specific physical and chemical properties, in medical fields silver nanoparticles can involve in diagnostic and treatment processes. Silver nanoparticles have antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiangiogenic, antioxidant, cosmetics, antitumor, anti-inflammatory, the drug carrier, imaging, water treatment, and biosensing effects. Silver nanoparticles prepared with reducing agent tri-sodium citrate then incorporated in a topical cream to obtain a significant inhibition of the bacterial strains, inhibition of growth of bacterial strains in the face or other parts in the bodies.
