There are about 4910 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Sweden. 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 study aims to evaluate whether a convergence dialogue during sick leave, between the employee and the employer, with the Primary Care Centre Rehab Coordinator as discussion leader, leads to reduced sick leave time compared to those individuals who only have contact with a Care Manager during the period of sick leave. The study will be performed as a randomised controlled trial with randomisation at the PCC level where intervention PCCs offers a convergence dialogue meeting with the work place representative during sick leave in addition to Care Manager contact.
Single-centre open-label prospective study, enrolling 100 children and adolescents aged 6-17 years, who receive medication for ADHD of any subtype (presentation). Long-term results are evaluated with tests of ADHD symptoms (Qb-test), intellectual ability (Wechsler scales; WISC), adaptive functioning (Vineland scale), everyday functioning (Weiss Functional Impairment Scale; WIFRS), and quality of life (Child Health and Illness Profile-Child Edition Scale; CHIP-CE) during 24 months of ADHD treatment.
Sepsis is a condition with a high mortality. Septic patients are frequently difficult to identify because of their non-specific presentations. There is also a low sensitivity of clinical judgment among health care personnel, and of existing screening tools, which are in turn typically based on vital parameters. Despite prior research, no unique sepsis biomarker has been identified so far. There is a need for new strategies to identify sepsis which do not rely on vital parameters and traditional laboratory blood tests alone. The hypothesis of the investigators is that a combination of clinical variables measurable in the ambulance can be used to predict sepsis. The aim of the current study is to determine the predictive value of keywords related to symptom presentation, vital parameters and point-of-care (POC) blood tests, alone and in combination, with respect to the outcome sepsis. The study is performed in the Stockholm ambulance setting from April 2017. A total of 648 adult non-trauma patients will be included.
It is important that asylum seekers should have as accurate age assessment as possible and that children's fundamental rights are met by choosing methods based on best available knowledge. The aim is to provide, on the basis of best available knowledge, suggestions for methods of medical age assessment of whether a person is over or under 18 years of age. The primary issue is to investigate whether five selected growth zones in knee joint, ankle and wrist individually or in combination can better determine the 18-year limit compared with previous research.
The primary objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of vilaprisan in subjects with uterine fibroids compared to ulipristal The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of different treatment regimens of vilaprisan in subjects with uterine fibroids
This pilot study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of CCM therapy in heart failure patients with baseline EF≥50% (HFpEF) who have New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class II or III symptoms despite appropriate medication. The terminology of the HF classification HFpEF is based on the 2016 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Heart Failure Guidelines.
The primary objective is to compare the failure rate due to splenic bleeding between the patients undergoing pre-emptive splenic arterial embolization (SAE) as part of non-operative management (NOM) and the patients not undergoing SAE. We hypothesize that the use of pre-emptive SAE will decrease the delayed bleeding rate and increase the success rate of NOM.
Today most fracture prevention measures targets the bone and osteoporosis. However, only about 20% of individuals with fractures have osteoporosis and at least 90% of all fractures are caused by a fall. Therefore, the present project builds on previous findings from our group identifying postural sway as an important risk factor for falls and aims to intervene against this risk factor in a randomized controlled trial targeting subjects at the highest risk for falls.
This Phase I/II trial evaluates LOAd703 in patients with cancer (pancreatic, biliary, colorectal or ovarian) together with their standard of care chemotherapy or using gemcitabine immune-conditioning. LOAd703 is administered by intratumoral image-guided injections. Maximum 50 patients can be enrolled. LOAd703 is an immunostimulatory gene therapy using an selection replication competent adenovirus as a gene vehicle. The virus is derived from serotype 5 adenovirus with the fiber from serotype 35. It expresses the transgenes trimerized membrane-bound isoleucine zipper (TMZ) TMZ-CD40L and 41BBL under control of a cytomegalovirus (CMV) promoter.
To examine the impact of health determinants at the individual (e.g. health related behaviors) and societal level (e.g. environmental factors, health related policy, quality of health systems) on health outcomes (e.g. death, non-communicable disease development) across a range of socioeconomic and health resource settings. Additional components of this study will examine genetic factors for non-communicable diseases. This will be examined both through a cross sectional component, and prospectively (cohort component).
