There are about 2277 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.
This randomized, active-controlled, multicenter, open-label, Phase III study is designed to investigate the efficacy and safety of alectinib compared with platinum-based in the adjuvant setting. Participants in the experimental arm will receive alectinib at 600 mg orally twice daily (BID) taken with food for 24 months. Participants in the control arm will receive one of the protocol specified platinum based chemotherapy regimens for 4 cycles. Following treatment completion, participants will be followed up for their disease until disease recurrence. At the time of disease recurrence, participants will enter a survival follow-up until death, withdrawal of consent or study closure, whichever occurs earlier.
Patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) suitable for endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) with Treovance were eligible to participate. Main inclusion criteria were: age 18-85 years; infrarenal AAA without significant infrarenal or distal iliac landing neck calcification or thrombus formation; infrarenal or distal iliac landing neck size requirements specified in the instructions for use. Main exclusion criteria: dissection/ruptured aneurysm or prior AAA endovascular or surgical repair. The primary endpoints were standard EVAR criteria.
Patients sedated under mechanical ventilation with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure with a PaO2/FiO2 equal or less than 200mmHg (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, ARDS and non-ARDS) will be included in the study early in the course of the disease (first week of mechanical ventilation). At enrollment, data on the clinical condition of the patient will be recorded together with ventilation settings: ventilation mode, the fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2), PEEP, tidal volume, set pressure, respiratory rate, time of the respiratory cycle, recent blood gas parameters. Airway pressure, flow, and esophageal pressure (or alternatively electrical activity of the diaphragm, Eadi) will be recorded 3 times a day for 7 days: 1. Period 1 (morning): duration 20-30 minutes 2. Period 2 (afternoon): duration 20-30 minutes 3. Period 3 (evening / night): duration 20-30 minutes Registration will be ended at extubation, death or at eight days from the first recording. Monitoring of vital parameters (hemodynamic and respiratory) will be continuous throughout the duration of the study, as per normal clinical practice. All drugs used during the day of the measurements will be recorded. The patient will then be followed until discharge from the ICU and after 60 days of discharge to evaluate mortality. The analysis of the recorded waveforms will be performed in a single center by a centralized system that will quantify dyssynchrony and its intensity, calculate pressure time product, collect clinical and physiological data and outcome, and investigate possible correlations.
Tubal ligation is an everyday procedure for permanent female sterilization. It is usually performed after a vaginal delivery. Minilaparotomy is generally performed by doing small incision at infraumbilical area. This minimal access surgery requires adequate operative field exposure. Bowel interference, which obscures visualization of the operative field has been recognized as one of the major obstacles during this procedure. We found problems while doing surgery in small space and one of them is bowel interferance which obscures vision. This could lead to prolonged operation and complications. Simethicone is an antifoaming agent that use in bowel preparation prior to various procedures including laparoscopy, colonoscopy, endoscopy, and open major abdominal operations. Simethicone is proven to break the bubble and reduce intraluminal gas. This effect could result in reduction of bowel dilatation that interfere with the proper identification of the adnexal area. Benefit of taking simethicone prior to do minilaparotomy for tubal resection has not been examined. Objectives: To examine the effect of simethicone on reducing bowel interference during minilaparotomy for tubal resection. Design: A randomized controlled trial in women, age 20-45 years, undergoing postpartum sterilization after vaginal delivery at Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University hospital. The participants will be randomly assigned into one of two study groups: intervention (taking simethicone) and control (not taking simethicone). For the intervention group, each woman will take simethicone (80 mg) 2 tablet chewing with water 50 ml at 2-8 hours before surgery. Fasting at least 6 hours before surgery. For the control group, the women will receive the same standard perioperative care without taking simethicone. The primary outcome measure will be surgeon-rated operative difficulty score, which is a visual analog scale based on assess from exposure of to the operative field in visual analog scale by surgeon. The secondary outcome will be operative time and incidence of intraoperative and postoperative complications.
Retrospective descriptive study
This study was designed as retrospective chart review to test our hypothesis whether there are the differences in inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators between asthmatic and ACOS patients with small airway obstruction, and COPD
Common bile duct stone cholangitis is a potentially fatal condition, characterized by an obstruction and bacterial infection of biliary system. The principles of management are appropriate biliary drainage and systemic antibiotics. There has been limited data about appropriate time of antibiotics in patient with successful endoscopic drainage.
An open-label randomized controlled trial to compare two vancomycin dosage adjustment methods
Chronic HBV infection is major problem in Asian countries. Years after chronic infection, in some cases serum HBsAg level declines to unmeasurable level. Some of patients develop anti-HBsAb but there is no standard treatment to accelerate HBsAg seroconversion. There is a study to determine efficacy and safety of HBV vaccine in who is Chronic HBV infection and lost their HBsAg without seroconversion to anti-HBsAb.
H.pylori is an organism which causes gastric inflammation, peptic ulcer disease (PUD), mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma and gastric cancer. Practical guideline for treatment of patients with dyspepsia and H.pylori eradication recommended the 14-day triple therapy regimen which had curable about 70% by using proton pump inhibitor (PPI) combined with antibiotics including amoxicillin, clarithromycin and metronidazole. Up to date, there has been no evidence about the cure rate for H.pylori eradication with once-daily dose regimen of high dose rabeprazole and levofloxacin based therapy. This research is to study the 7-day and 14-day cure rate of H.pylori eradication treatment with once-daily regimen of high dose rabeprazole-levofloxacin based quadruple therapy.
