There are about 2145 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Thailand. 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.
There are two stages in the study. In Stage 1, 2000 Thai MSM, MSW and TGW/TGSW will be screened at the Thai Red Cross Anonymous Clinic (TRCAC) or Besides walk-in clients of TRCAC, potential participants could be referred to TRCAC by Rainbow Sky Association of Thailand (RSAT), Service Workers In Group (SWING) Foundation and Sisters Foundation. Each participant will complete a short standardized questionnaire on risk behavior, including use of amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) and other drugs. HIV testing will be done following usual HIV testing and counseling (HTC) guidelines. Stage 1 will collect data on ATS use in the community. The results from stage 1 will also be used to stratify participants for inclusion in stage 2 of the study. Participants from the screening will be invited to participate in stage 2 of the study, which is the longitudinal cohort study. Recruitment will be stratified by HIV status and ATS use as listed in to ensure an adequate number of ATS users for data analysis. Participants in stage 2 will follow-up every 6 months for 18 months.
Two new rapid HIV tests by Alere™ have the potential to substantially decrease the window period for rapid tests. First, the Alere™ HIV Combo is a rapid fourth generation test. The performance in a laboratory based setting was recently assessed at the Thai Red Cross Anonymous Clinic Laboratory in Bangkok, Thailand (personal communication). Of 50 confirmed acute HIV samples, Alere™ HIV Combo could detect 37 (74%), while none of these 50 cases could be identified by the currently used third generation tests. These data have not yet been published, but the preliminary results indicate a very favorable performance of the Alere™ HIV Combo in a facility-based laboratory setting. Second, the Alere™ q HIV-1/2 Detect is a qualitative, cartridge based, nucleic acid amplification test designed for Point of Care use. Data from several early infant diagnosis studies in Sub-Saharan African countries have assessed the performance of the Alere™ q HIV-1/2 Detect. The test was performed in the field, by a range of health professionals, from nurses and laboratory technicians to medical doctors. The pooled analysis showed a sensitivity of 99.07% (95%CI 95.48 - 99.95%) and a specificity of 99.94% (99.72-100%).
The purpose of this international, multicenter service review is to describe and compare ventilation management in patients at risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) versus patients not at risk and patients with established ARDS, and to ascertain whether certain ventilator settings and ventilation parameters are associated with pulmonary complications or development of ARDS after start of ventilation in patients in intensive care units (ICUs) in Asian countries. Participating centers will include adult patients undergoing mechanical ventilation in the ICU during a 28-day period. Patients' data will be collected during the first 7 days in the ICU, or until ICU discharge. Follow up is until ICU discharge. The primary outcome includes two main ventilator settings, i.e., tidal volume and the level of positive end-expiratory pressure. Secondary endpoints are development of ARDS in patients without ARDS at the onset of mechanical ventilation, worsening of ARDS in patients with ARDS at the onset of mechanical ventilation, pulmonary infection, other pulmonary complications, need for tracheostomy, duration of ventilation, length of ICU stay and ICU mortality.
To compare the sensitivity of Tzanck smear with methylene blue stain versus traditional Giemsa stain in patients with herpes infection.
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (type 2 DM) is an important disease with increasing prevalence worldwide. More than 60% of diabetes patients die of CVD. Diabetes is associated with 2-to 4- fold increase in the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD). Diabetes patients with stable ischemic heart disease may have more prevalent of asymptomatic ischemia or silent ischemia due to autonomic neuropathy. Therefore, detection of total myocardial ischemia including both symptomatic and silent ischemia using ambulatory electrocardiogram monitoring may provide better accuracy in ischemic burden and prognosis in diabetes patients. DDP-4 inhibitors have favorable effects on atherosclerotic risk factors beyond glycemic control. Furthermore, DPP-4 inhibitors may have favorable effects on ischemic preconditioning in patients with CAD. For this study we aim to compare the effects of between vildagliptin and Dapagliflozin on ischemic burden defined by total ischemic time, markers of autonomic function, biomarkers of myocardial injury and biomarkers of inflammation.
This is a phase 2/3, global, multicenter, open-label, multi-cohort study designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of targeted therapies or immunotherapy as single agents or in combination in participants with unresectable, advanced or metastatic NSCLC determined to harbor oncogenic somatic mutations or positive by tumor mutational burden (TMB) assay as identified by two blood-based next-generation sequencing (NGS) circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) assays.
forty DLE lesions from patients will be recruited in the study. The lesions on one side of the body were block-randomized into the treatment group and the other side served as a control. The patients can continue their systemic treatments and the PDL is designed to be used as an adjunctive treatment. Treatments with the PDL will be delivered in the treatment group every 4 weeks for 4 consecutive months while the lesions in the control group received a sham. The patients will be evaluated at baseline (week 0), week 4, 8, 12, and at follow-up period of 4, 12 weeks after the final treatment (week 16, 24). Erythema index (EI), Texture index (TI) will be obtained and digital photographs will be taken and modified Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Area and Severity Index (mCLASI) will be assessed in every visit. The digital photographs will later be evaluated by 3-blinded dermatologists. Moreover, side effects and patients' satisfaction score will also be recorded.
The study is about drug patch tests in patients who have history of severe cutaneous drug reaction including Steven Johnson syndrome (SJS), toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), Drug-induced eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS), AGEP (Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis) and generalized bullous fixed drug eruptions. This study also investigate in Enzyme-linked immunosorbent spot assay (ELIspot) and lymphocyte transformation test. We also trying to prove the correlation among result of drug patch tests, ELIspot and LTT.
The present international, multi-center, open-label, single-arm study aims at collecting clinical safety, tolerability and efficacy data with the use of everolimus combined with exemestane in the Novartis Oncology Emerging Growth Market (EGM) countries for the treatment of post-menopausal women with hormone receptor (HR) positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) negative locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer after documented recurrence or progression following a non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor (NSAI) therapy.
Kidney transplantation is the most appropriated treatment in end stage renal failure patients in order to improve quality of life. However, patients have to take immunosuppressive drugs to prevent graft rejection. Tacrolimus is the most common immunosuppressive drug used now. However, tacrolimus has narrow therapeutic level and needs regularly therapeutic monitor because of inter-individual variation in dosage regimen. Not only age, body weight and drug interaction but also genetic factor in metabolic pathway of tacrolimus plays an important role in tacrolimus blood level. Previous data showed CYP3A5 genetic polymorphism was significant effect tacrolimus blood level. From previous study showed the mean dose of tacrolimus required for the induction phase was significantly higher (P= 0.006) in the CYP3A5*1/*1 group at 0.142±0.050 mg/kg/day than that required by patients who carried either the CYP3A5*1/*3 group of 0.097±0.040 mg/kg/day or the CYP3A5*3/*3 group of 0.077±0.020 mg/kg/day. Tacrolimus maintenance dose required for CYP3A5*1/*1 group of 0.12±0.03 mg/kg/day was 1.3 times higher (P<0.0001) than used for the CYP3A5*1/*3 at 0.09±0.03 mg/kg/day and 2.4 times higher than the CYP3A5*3/*3 group of 0.05±0.02 mg/kg/day. Therefore, the investigators plan to investigate a prospective study to determine the clinical outcome of tacrolimus treatment in kidney transplant recipients between genotype guided dosage regimen group and conventional group.
