There are about 2145 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Singapore. 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 1 dose-escalation study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of combination treatment of AZD5363 + Olaparib + Durvalumab and to determine the RP2D in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumor malignancies. The purpose of this trial is to determine if combination treatment of drugs, Olaparib, AZD5363 and Durvalumab has beneficial effects in advanced or metastatic cancers and to determine the effects it has on patients and their cancer. Primary Objectives • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of combination treatment AZD5363 + Olaparib + Durvalumab and determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD), Dose-Limiting Toxicities (DLTs), and Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D) for patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumor malignancies. Secondary Objectives - To determine the pharmacodynamics (PDn) of combination treatment AZD5363 + Olaparib + Durvalumab in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumor malignancies - To describe anti-tumor response using immune RECIST of combination treatment AZD5363 + Olaparib + Durvalumab in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumor malignancies Exploratory Objectives - To evaluate anti-tumour response using RECIST v1.1 for combination treatment AZD5363 + Olaparib + Durvalumab in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumor malignancies - To explore molecular correlates of the relationship between mutations in Akt/ PIK3CA/PTEN pathway and response to AZD5363 +Olaparib+ Durvalumab - To understand the role of tumour microenvironment in regulation of intratumoral immune regulators (i.e. T-regulatory cells) in improving response to Durvalumab - To understand the role of AZD5363 as an immunomodulator - To evaluate the role of PD-1 and PDL-1 immunohistochemical and tumour MMR status in predicting response to immune check point inhibitors.
This study aims to determine the incidence of hypothermia in the local paediatric population in the peri-operative period, identify the risk factors involved, and thereafter develop and implement clinical practice guidelines to reduce IPH such that temperature monitoring and heat conservation measures can be implemented in a cost-effective way. The secondary objectives are to determine the adverse outcomes of hypothermia and warming measures
Patients with severe dry eye who have exhausted conventional treatment are not uncommon and are difficult to manage. They and their physicians are helpless when faced with these scenarios. A small HPRG group, Health Science Authority (HSA) and IRB approved study of autologous plasma eye drop therapy for patients with recalcitrant dry eye has been completed recently by investigators at the Singapore National Eye Centre. The unique feature of the previous protocol was that the autologous plasma preparation was made and contained in sealed segments of intravenous tubing until use by the patient. The study showed that the corneal fluorescein staining of patients who regularly used autologous plasma over a 6 week period improved significantly. Additionally, there was a significant reduction in the total number of topical eye drop treatment required. Investigator did not encounter any cases of infected eye drop preparation or any cases of eye infection. Seventy percent of these patients would recommend this treatment to their relatives and friends suggesting that this form of treatment is a valuable additional modality for dry eyes. Now, investigator would like to extend the short-term pilot study into a long-term single arm clinical trial, in order to determine the best protocol/logistic for this treatment that is practical and still effective, and allowing for more than one plasmapheresis during the study. To achieve this, investigator aim to perform a longitudinal prospective study of patients with severe dry eye who cannot be satisfactorily managed with conventional dry eye treatments using a proposed regime for plasmapheresis and plasma storage.
The use of povidone iodine solution for prophylaxis of endophthalmitis is well established for intraocular procedures like cataract surgery and for injections of anti-VEGF agents for retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration. Unfortunately iodine is unfriendly to the ocular surface, and when repeated often enough (some patients require up to monthly injections of anti-VEGF agents for the entire year), corneal epitheliopathy and secondary dry eye results. Unfortunately, there is no good alternative to cleaning patient's eyelid at the moment. Ocudox is a relatively new antibacterial product (spraying on eyelid wipe) which contains Neutrox (pure hypochlorous acid) that kills many microbes, but remain very friendly and non-toxic for the ocular surface.
In efforts to promote a healthy diet, the Singapore Health Promotion Board (HPB) has attempted to use Front-of-Pack (FOP) labelling to supplement traditional nutrition labelling. The Healthier Choice Symbol (HCS) identifies food items within a specific category of foods as healthier choices. The original logos were enhanced to include additional information focusing on particular macronutrients, taking one of two themes; it either indicates that a product contains more of a healthier ingredient, or less of a less healthy ingredient. However, there is a lack of scientific evidence on the role of the existing symbols in assisting consumers make healthier food purchasing decisions. Thus far, studies have established that the United Kingdom's Multiple Traffic Lights (MTL) label, and the new French Nutri-Score (NS) label, are amongst the top performers. However, there is little consensus on which is the most effective FOP label to promote diet quality. Thus, the investigators propose to conduct the following: Use a three arm randomized controlled trial (RCT) and an experimental fully functional web-based grocery store to test two competing approaches of front-of-pack (FOP) labelling on measures of diet quality: 1) United Kingdom's Multiple Traffic Lights label (MTL) or 2) France's Nutri-Score (NS) labelling scheme. The investigators hypothesize that diet quality as measured by the Alternative Healthy Eating Index (AHEI-2010) (primary outcome) will be highest in the NS arm, followed by MTL, and lowest in the no logo control arm.
The objective of this study is to demonstrate the ease of deployment of a novel magnetically-controlled ingestible weight loss microcapsule* and the functionality of the magnetically controlled inflation of the balloon within the stomach.
The research project aims to perform data extraction, integration and analysis across multiple clinical, administrative, financial and pharmacy databases in the participating institutions. The key data components will include clinical cardiovascular specific data, procedural data, financial and administrative data (e.g. cost of medications and supplies, length of stay, diagnosis codes etc.), short-to-long term clinical outcomes (including hospital re-admissions, cardiovascular events, death), and quality-of-care indices (e.g. compliance to guideline-recommended therapy and medications). The research project will involve all patients proven and/or suspected with coronary artery disease (CAD), congestive heart failure (CHF) and atrial fibrillation (AF) admitted to National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) and NUH.
Clinical trial applying CURATE.AI, a Phenotypic Precision Medicine (PPM) platform, to velcade and cyclophosphamide dosing in multiple myeloma patients to show improvement in response.
The presence or development of AKI impacts on outcomes in patients presenting with acute conditions to the ED. As a result, treating physicians are often concerned with the risk of AKI and take such risk in consideration when making subsequent therapeutic and diagnostic decisions which may result in delaying or withholding therapeutic measures in order to prevent further kidney damage (i.e. avoid imaging studies with contrast media). If clinicians could be informed early that a patient is at minimal risk for AKI, they could deploy timely and optimal diagnostic and treatment procedures for the underlying disease of the patient without major concerns for causing or exacerbating kidney damage
Glucosamine is commonly used as a treatment for Osteoarthritis (OA). While oral administration remains the most commonly used route, topical administration could offer numerous advantages such as targeted delivery to affected joints and overcoming the negative effects of the passage of the drug through the digestive system. The objective of this study is to assess the bioavailability of glucosamine in the synovial fluid of osteoarthritic joints, following the topical application of a commercially available transdermal glucosamine cream. Joint fluid samples will be collected from 2 groups of participants with knee OA: the Control group will not be subjected to any treatment while the Test group will apply 2g of transdermal glucosamine cream 1 to 3 hours before the joint fluid collection. Glucosamine concentration will be determined and the results obtained from both groups will be compared. This trial will potentially provide data to support that glucosamine can cross the skin and be delivered to the affected joint fluid when formulated in a transdermal cream base.
