There are about 3534 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Turkey. 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.
While lung cancer are rare disease in the early 20th century, its incidence increased in parallel with the increase in smoking habits. It is the most common type of cancer in the world. Despite advances in the efficacy of chemotherapy and radiotherapy regimens, surgical resection is the most effective curative treatment modality to improve survival in non-small cell lung cancer. Pulmonary resection candidates are selected according to not only tumor type and stage, but also functional status, exercise capacity, underlying lung disorders and health-related quality of life assessments. Patients with lung cancer often have lung and heart comorbidities that affect the outcome of the outcome measures and restricts cancer treatment options. In patients with lung cancer, shortness of breath, physical inactivity, weakness in peripheral muscles and exercise intolerance are described. Pulmonary rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary treatment designed to improve exercise capacity, functional status, health-related quality of life and to reduce the attenuation of chronic shortness of breath and fatigue in patients with chronic lung problems. In literature, the effect of surgery in patients with lung cancer on postoperative respiratory muscle strength is not clear. There is no study investigating the effect of chemotherapy and radiotherapy on respiratory muscle strength. For these reasons, the aim of the study was to evaluate the curative period of non-small cell lung cancer patients with reliability and validity assessment methods. The hypothesis of our study was; when compared with patients with lung cancer and healthy individuals, exercise capacity, respiratory and peripheral muscle strength, physical activity levels, sleep and quality of life of lung cancer patients are reduced; dyspnoea, fatigue, depression, cough and pain levels increase.
In our study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between STOP-BANG and 4-Variable Screening questionnaires in postoperative period in patients who underwent bariatric surgery.
Burn injuries are related to longer hospital stay. Patients who have a burned child are affected prolonged hospitalization. Social life and quality of life are affected by burn injuries. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the effects of burn injury on parents.
This study was performed on 66 patients who were admitted for third molar extraction under local anesthesia. The patients were divided into three groups: group 1 with verbal information, group 2 with written information, and group 3 with previous surgical experience. Spielberger State Anxiety Inventory (STAI-S), Dental Fear Scale (DFS), Modified Dental Anxiety Scale (MDAS), and Visual Analog Scale (VAS) were used pre- and postoperatively to evaluate dental anxiety
This study, we are aim to make the Turkish version validity and reliability of the Cranifacial Pain and Disability Inventory, Jaw Functional Limitation Scale-20, and Jaw Functional Limitation Scale-8.
Behçet's Disease (BD) is a chronic, inflammatory, rheumatic disease that is characterized by mucocutaneous lesions. Promoting physical activity level is one of the major goals in the management of patients with rheumatic diseases, it is important to determine the factors affecting physical activity level and exercise barriers. The aim of this study is to investigate physical activity level and exercise barriers in patients with BD. Physical activity level, exercise barriers, disease activity, fatigue, depression, pain, sleep disorders, aerobic capacity and quality of life will be assessed using International Physical Activity Questionnaire-Short Form (IPAQ),Exercise Benefits/Barriers Scale, Behçet Disease Current Activity Form (BDCAF), Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), McGill Pain Questionnaire- Short Form (MPQ-SF), Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, 6 minute walk test and Behçet's Disease Quality of Life Questionnaire, respectively.
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is one of the most common causes of sexually transmitted diseases and its link with malignancies is well established, especially with anogenital tract cancers (cervical, vaginal, vulvar, anal cancers). HPV 16 and 18 are the most commonly isolated HPV types in cervical cancer, however not all infections with HPV 16 or 18 progress to cancer. After the HPV test has been used in cervical cancer screening, there have been concerns about whether women carry this virus. Although HPV testing may cause negative emotional responses, adverse emotional responses are related to HPV infection rather than testing. In this respect, there were several studies which evaluated the quality of life and psychological responses of women with positive HPV test results and it is known that positive HPV test results cause additional anxiety, distress and negative emotional responses in women. We hypothesized that the awareness of having a sexually transmitted infection in women with HPV and, therefore, a close follow-up and the need for further investigation such as colposcopy can affect their sexual life. In this study, we aimed to observe the changes in sexual function and anxiety of the HPV positive women with validated objective tools after being informed about their co-test results.
The study was carried out randomized-controlled experimental research to determine the foot health status and factors affecting it among elderly individuals, to develop a protective and developmental protocol for foot health of elderly individuals and to determine the effect of this protocol on foot health problems, foot care knowledge levels and foot care behaviors.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease characterised by polyarthritis and erosive synovitis. Articular and extraarticular sympthoms are mostly seen in patients with RA. Additionally, extra complaints such as depression, fatigue, kinesiophobia and physical inactivity may accompany. Positive effects of physical activity and exercise are known. In some studies, effects of pilates exercises have been investigated on many different diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Ankylosing Spondylitis and breast cancer. The aim of this study is to investigate effects of clinical pilates exercises on fatigue, depression, aerobic capacity, pain, quality of life, disease activity and sleep quality.
