There are about 14 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Uzbekistan. 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.
Pityriasis alba (PA) is a common, benign skin disorder occurring predominantly in children and adolescents. It is characterized by ill-defined hypopigmented macules and patches, round or oval in shape. They are most commonly located on the face (especially the cheeks), arms, and upper trunk; and they are more noticeable in people with darker skin types. Sun exposure accentuates the lesions. Patients and their parents are often anxious about the cosmetic appearance of the lesions. PA is not seasonal, although peeling may be worse in the winter (as a result of dry air in homes) and lesions may be more obvious in the spring and summer (as a result of sun exposure and darkening of the surrounding skin).No specific cause of PA has been identified. It is not contagious, and no infectious etiology has been reported. It is most common in individuals with a history of atopy, although it may occur in nonatopic individuals. In the present study, we will investigate the role of serum vitamin D levels and serum total IgE levels with development and course of PA. Plasma levels of 25(OH) vitamin D and Total serum immunoglobulin E will be determined by using ELISA technique.

This is an expanded access program (EAP) for patient with Melanoma and Glioblastoma who have progressed after prior Protocol therapy including Bevacizumab, Temozolomide ( TMZ ), Ipilimumab, BRAF and MEK inhibitors. The patients whose tumors are EGFR, MET or ALK positive should first receive an EFGR or ALK inhibitor, respectively, prior to treatment with pembrolizumab.
The purpose of this study is to obtain additional data on efficacy and safety of 12-week course of therapy with Anaferon for children for prevention of influenza and other acute respiratory viral infections in children during the peaks of seasonal morbidity. Primary objectives of the study: 1. To assess duration of the period from the first dose of the drug until manifestation of the symptoms of influenza or another acute respiratory viral infection (ARVI) in two groups of subjects receiving preventive therapy with the study drug (Anaferon for children) or Placebo. 2. To compare duration of periods from the first dose of the drug until manifestation of the symptoms of influenza or another ARVI in two groups of subjects (Anaferon for children and Placebo). 3. Based on the comparison of duration of periods from the first dose of the drug until manifestation of the symptoms of the disease in these two groups, to assess efficacy of Anaferon for children for prevention of influenza and other ARVI in children during the peaks of seasonal morbidity and demonstrate superiority of the study drug over placebo. Additional study objectives: 1. To assess and compare percentage of children not falling with influenza or another ARVI in the two groups during 4-, 8- and 12-week course of preventive therapy. 2. To assess and compare percentage of children in the two groups with the symptoms of respiratory or ear-nose-throat bacterial infections requiring antibacterial therapy within 12-week preventive therapy. 3. To assess and compare percentage of children hospitalized with influenza/ARVI or their complications in the two groups within 12-week preventive therapy. 4. Based on collection and analysis of adverse events during the therapy, to obtain additional information on safety of the study drug
The purpose of this study is to obtain additional data on efficacy and safety of Ergoferon in the treatment of viral intestinal infections in inpatient children
The primary goal of this study is to directly compare repeat doses of sublingual and buccal routes of 400 mcg misoprostol following mifepristone for second trimester abortion in order to determine if sublingual route confers an advantage with respect to efficacy and median time to complete abortion.
TB PRACTECAL is a multi-centre, open label, multi-arm, randomised, controlled, phase II-III trial; evaluating short treatment regimens containing bedaquiline and pretomanid in combination with existing and re-purposed anti-TB drugs for the treatment of biologically confirmed pulmonary multi drug-resistant TB (MDR-TB).
Multidrug resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) is a growing problem and few people have access to adequate diagnosis and treatment. The current recommended treatment regimen for MDR TB has a minimum of 20 months duration with high toxicity. Scale up of MDR TB treatment is associated with high default rates, and experience in the Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) programme in Uzbekistan shows that the current standard treatment greatly limits the ability to scale up to meet the high rates of MDR TB in the region. Evidence from Bangladesh in 2010 showed that a 9-month short-course regimen could achieve a relapse-free cure rate of 88%. Several countries in West Africa started implementing similar regimens with similar outcomes. Evidence of effectiveness of this shortened regimen among regions with high second line drug use and resistance is still limited. The investigators propose an observational study under programmatic conditions to evaluate the effectiveness of a shortened course MDR TB regimen in the high MDR/extensively drug resistant (XDR) TB prevalence and high second-line drug resistance setting of Karakalpakstan, Uzbekistan.
It is a common understanding that patients with coronary heart disease are suffering, among others, from reduced myocardial perfusion. In order to increase (normalize) the reduced perfusion, when conventional approach failed, coronary bypass surgery, coronary vessel dilatation/stenting are performed. The similar situation with reduced myocardial perfusion may be found in patients with stenosis of the aortic valve, where aortic valve replacement may increase myocardial perfusion by left-ventricular remodelling. However, there is presently no method established to measure myocardial perfusion quantitatively and noninvasively before and after a therapeutic intervention. Data of pre- and post-therapeutic myocardial perfusion, quantitatively measured in ml/100g/min would strengthen the indication for specific therapeutic approach and enable an objective control of effectiveness of the applied therapy. Hypothesis: There is a measureable difference in quantitative myocardial perfusion values before (lower) and after (higher) interventional or surgical procedure. The goal of the study is to measure myocardial perfusion by advanced CT technology (e.g. iCT 256 Brilliance ) quantitatively in ml/100g/min in three groups of patients: 1. Before and after coronary bypass surgery 2. Before and after coronary vessel dilatation/stenting 3. Before and after aortic valve replacement. The investigators will not assign specific interventions to the subjects of these three groups. Therefore, the research is strictly observational. Design: Prospective study to measure quantitatively myocardial perfusion in the above mentioned three groups of patients with simultaneous control and registration of all essential, physiological determinants of myocardial perfusion immediately prior to each CT study. The CT myocardial perfusion measurements will be performed directly after the indication for intervention or surgery and on the last day before discharge from hospital. All the collected data (determinants) inclusively the CT-studies will be anonymised and archived on a local server. The investigators of the University of Medical Computed Sciences and Technology, Innsbruck / Austria will perform the evaluation of the myocardial perfusion measurements and all statistical analysis independently of the CT-studies performing physicians.
The primary goal is to examine the efficacy and feasibility of a mifepristone-misoprostol medical abortion regimen in terminating pregnancies 13-22 weeks in Uzbekistan.
