There are about 1814 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.
To investigate whether ocular imaging and proteomic biomarkers; and systemic biochemical, metabolomic, and genetic biomarkers predict treatment response to intravitreal aflibercept in a cohort of patients with DME. To identify if subjects with DME who do not have a rapid response to intravitreal aflibercept, will benefit from intravitreal steroid therapy, and identify the biomarkers that predict response to steroid therapy.
The purpose of the study is to determine the efficacy of video coaching training for neonatology attending providers on tracheal intubation procedural outcomes in neonatal ICUs.
This is a prospective single arm open-label Phase 2 study utilising the combination of Fulvestrant, Metformin and Simvastatin in post-menopausal ER-positive metastatic breast cancer, with the primary endpoint being Clinical Benefit Rate (defined as complete response, partial response or stable disease, equal to or more than 24 weeks). The hypothesis is that the addition of Metformin and Simvastatin to Fulvestrant will improve the Clinical Benefit Rate from 40% (historical data from control arm of PALOMA-3 study) to 60%. A total of 28 patients will be enrolled over a period of 24 months. Eligible patients will receive 500 mg Fulvestrant by intramuscular injection on days 1 and 15 of cycle one and then on day one of each subsequent cycle (28 days). Patients will be given 850mg oral Metformin twice-a-day (based on xenograft models which showed that Metformin had anti-tumor effects at a minimum dose of 1500mg per day), and 20mg oral Simvastatin every night (drawing reference from the investigators' group's window-of-opportunity study), daily throughout the cycle. As part of the in-build safety and tolerability design, all patients will have a lead-in period of 7 days where they receive 850mg oral Metformin twice-a-day and 20mg oral Simvastatin every night. Special adverse events of interest include lactic acidosis, diarrhea, bloatedness, transaminitis and rhabdomyolysis. If no dose-limiting toxic effects (DLT) occur, Fulvestrant will be commenced, and considered the start of cycle 1. If DLT occurs in any of the patients, the combination of Metformin and Simvastatin will be modified for the affected patient as per protocol, with further monitoring for another 7 days. This combination will be deemed safe for that patient if no DLT occurs, following which cycle 1 can officially commence. At the time of study entry, blood samples will be drawn to establish baseline physiological parameters including fasting insulin, glucose, lipids and Homeostasis Model Assessment 2 (HOMA2). In patients who have accessible tumor sites and are willing to provide tissue for translational research, pre- and post-treatment (at end of 8 weeks) biopsies will be taken for correlative biomarker studies. Patients will be evaluated on an 8-weekly basis for toxicities and efficacy assessments during the first 6 months of treatment, followed by 12-weekly thereafter until disease progression, unacceptable toxicities, or patient withdrawal.
This study is carried out to test the safety of a study drug called PRL3-ZUMAB. PRL3-ZUMAB is an investigational drug that has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or any other regulatory authorities for commercial purposes. This is the first study in which PRL3-ZUMAB will be given to humans. The study drug has been tested in animals and was found to be well-tolerated with minimal side effects. This research study will test different doses of the drug to see which dose is safest in people.
The ATR(ataxia-telangiectasia and Rad3 related protein) inhibitor BAY1895344 is developed for the treatment of patients with advanced solid tumors and lymphomas. The purpose of the proposed trial is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of BAY1895344, and to identify the maximum tolerated dose of BAY1895344 that could be safely given to cancer patients. Further, the response of the cancer to the treatment will be determined.
This is a phase II study in patients with recurrent platinum resistant or refractory C5 high-grade serous, endometrioid or undifferentiated ovarian, primary peritoneal or fallopian tube cancer. All patients with high-grade serous, endometrioid or undifferentiated primary peritoneum, fallopian tube or ovarian cancer will be eligible to be screened for this trial and will be required to sign a pre-screening consent form.
Bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS, ABSORB BVS1.1, Abbott Vascular) has been approved (CE mark) and is used in daily clinical practice. While recent randomized controlled trials comparing BVS versus metallic drug-eluting stent showed higher risk of definite or probable device thrombosis after BVS implantation, the causes underlying thrombotic events occurring beyond one year after scaffold implantation remain unclear and require investigation in an independent manner. The INVEST registry is a world-wide, multi-center, observational, retrospective, investigator-initiated registry, which will include any patients who suffered from very late (>1 year) scaffold thrombosis, underwent optical coherence tomography (OCT) at the time of thrombosis and provided informed consent for the further use of their health related data for this registry.
Majority of patients with hypertension have primary hypertension (without an underlying cause). Secondary hypertension (due to an underlying disease) is important to recognize, as treatment can lead to cure of hypertension. Primary aldosteronism (PA) is the most common cause of secondary hypertension, and can be found in 5-10% of patients locally. PA is caused by excessive release of a hormone (aldosterone) from the adrenal glands, which can be unilateral (one gland) or bilateral (both glands). Distinction between two is crucial as unilateral disease is treated with the aim of cure by surgery, and bilateral disease is treated by medication. It has been shown that excess aldosterone has other harmful effects in addition to hypertension, such as directly affecting the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, diabetes and quality of life. This is supported by studies showing reversal of these effects after treatment for PA. In addition, improvements after surgery appears to be superior to medical treatment, although studies have found variable results. Hence, the investigators aim to accurately subtype patients with PA into unilateral or bilateral disease and study the post-treatment response after both surgery and medicine with regards to the effects on blood pressure, cardiovascular, renal, metabolic and quality of life.
PIPAC is a procedure that involves the administration of intraperitoneal chemotherapy using an innovative concept that enhances the efficacy by taking advantage of the physical properties of gas and pressure. The chemotherapy drugs will be delivered in aerosolised form. This results in a superior distribution and depth of penetration of the drug. This research study serves to determine the safety profile and tolerability of PIPAC with oxaliplatin. It may offer a novel and effective option of treatment for patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis, who, at present have limited options involving the use of systemic chemotherapy and who suffer from poor life expectancy and poor quality of life.
This study aims to study differences in clinical and functional outcomes at 2 years based on hamstring graft size after single bundle anatomic ACL reconstruction using either 4-strand or 5-strand hamstring grafts. We also propose to study the characteristics of hamstring graft in our subset of patients in Asian population context.
