There are about 118947 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in United States. 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.
The Connected Catheter is a fully internal, urethral indwelling urinary prosthesis designed for improved bladder management in males with urinary retention disorders requiring catheterization. It is a sterile, single-extended-use device that resides fully internally to the male lower urinary tract (urethra + bladder neck) for an intended service life of up to 7 days per Catheter
This is an open-label, non-randomized, fixed sequence study conducted at a single study center with primary aim to assess the pharmacokinetics (PK) of AZD9977 in healthy volunteers when administered alone and in combination with multiple doses of itraconazole.
This study will measure Interleukin 6 (IL-6), a well-documented inflammatory biomarker that is increased in the acute phase of stroke, and to compare its levels after the administration of melatonin - a well-documented anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant - that regulates circadian rhythm, which helps promote sleep.
This is a multicenter, expanded access protocol of intradermal autologous Vigil immunotherapy. Subjects meeting expanded access eligibility criteria will receive a minimum of 1 immunotherapy dose of Vigil (1 x 10e4, 1 x 10e5, or 1 x 10e6 cells/injection), intradermally every 4 weeks as monotherapy.
This study is part of a larger overall study that seeks to characterize clinical and pharmacological neuroimaging biomarkers. The purpose of this registered protocol is understand the effect of emotion on cognitions by specifically examining the effect of reward processing on working memory in patients with schizophrenia.
The long-term goal of this proposal is to identify non-opioid drugs that harness endogenous anti-inflammatory mechanisms resulting in the suppression of proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-1ß providing a novel approach to treat chronic pain in people while lacking potential for addictive side effects. Specific Aim I: pramipexole blocks the activation of NLRP3 and consequent production and release of the proinflammatory cytokines IL-1ß, IL-6 and TNF-α, and increases production of the anti-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-10 (IL-10). The goal of Aim I (Phase I) experiments is to examine the specific anti-inflammatory mechanisms of pramipexole on PAMP, DAMP and opioid stimulated immune cells, THP-1 cells will be used. Specific Aim II: pramipexole treatment will provide therapeutic benefit to patients experiencing suboptimal pain relief from current standard therapy with concurrent reduction of TLR4-NLRP3-cytokine expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells. The goal of Aim II (Phase II) will be to determine the therapeutic benefit of pramipexole for pain, which is a repurposing of this FDA-approved drug with a good safety profile. 1.2. Our overarching hypothesis is that pramipexole will control clinical pain by suppressing the activation of the TLR4-NLRP3-IL-1ß pathway and prevent IL-1ß release from peripheral immune cells. These findings have provided the current impetus to examine pain therapeutic drugs targeting immune-related factors either upstream or downstream of IL-1ß signaling.
The purpose of this study is to determine the recommended phase 2 dose of the drug Vorinostat in children, adolescents and young adults following allogeneic HCT and determine whether the addition of Vorinostat to the standard preventive therapy (tacrolimus / methotrexate) will reduce the incidence of graft versus host disease (GVHD) following unrelated donor, myeloablative transplant in children, adolescents and young adults.
Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is a significant public health problem, with prevalence rates of 13.9% for current and 29.1% for lifetime diagnosis (Grant et al., 2015). AUD creates harm at the individual, familial, and societal level, with an estimated societal cost of $249 billion (Sacks et al., 2015) per year. The course of AUD typically is characterized by periods of relapse to problematic drinking (Maisto et al., 2014), signaling a need for better treatments and understanding of mechanisms of behavior change. The goal of this research is to conduct a randomized clinical trial with 140 participants who have an Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). Each participant will complete behavioral assessments, self-report surveys and brain imaging before and after receiving psychotherapy treatment to change their drinking behaviors. Various aspects of behavior change will be looked at to better understand changes in brain function and emotional reactivity when someone changes their patterns of alcohol use. The two treatment used in this study have been found to be helpful in reducing alcohol use. Participants will be randomly assigned to either Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) or Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) that will be completed in 12 weekly therapy sessions. It is anticipated that there will be numerous changes in brain function that are found when someone reduces or stops their alcohol use after the completion of 12 weeks of treatment.
This is a research study of adults with hemophilia that have limitations in elbow joint motion that is the result of bleeding into the joint. People with hemophilia who have bleeding into their elbow joint may have limitations in elbow joint movement and pain in the joint. This research is being done to determine the effect a strength training program has on the amount of movement people with hemophilia and elbow joint disease have.
This randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled study was intended to measure the effects of the GWMP with Release supplement versus GWMP with placebo supplement in a representative group of obese subjects with or without diabetes at one outpatient medical practice.
