There are about 9 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Andorra. 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 PROFIT study has two complementary aims. The first aim is to compare, in a cohort study enrolling N=257 older adults (>65 years) with lung, gastrointestinal and prostate cancer, different easy measures of frailty (Geriatric 8 questionnaire (G8), Short physical Performance Battery (SPPB) and the IF-VIG), testing their ability to predict survival, functional status (ECOG, Barthel Index), quality of life (EuroQol5D) and resources utilization (visits, hospital admissions, treatments) at 3, 6 and 12 months. The second aim, which motivates the registration in ClinicalTrials.gov, is to conduct a randomized controlled trial (RCT) enrolling N=134 patients per group, with similar characteristics to those enrolled for aim 1, but with mild-moderate frailty (G8≤14 points); we will compare a multi-component CGA-based intervention including physical exercise and nutritional recommendations with usual care, measuring the impact on the same outcomes as for aim 1, at 3 and 6 months. The use of ad hoc eHealth solutions (App/platform for exercise) will foster patients' empowerment and sustainability of the intervention. We will also assess patients, caregivers, and professionals' experience with the intervention through focus groups. Participants will be recruited from outpatients and from post-acute care units.
Dry eye syndrome is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Consequences of dry eyes range from subtle but constant eye irritation to significant inflammation and even scarring of the front surface of the eye. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) refers to the condition where the glands are not secreting enough oil or when the oil they secrete is of poor quality. Tixel is a fractional skin rejuvenation system, which relies on direct thermal energy delivery, free of any radiation type such as laser, RF, etc. The energy is transferred via a continuously sterile, thermal titanium element (the "Tip"), located on the applicator (the "Handpiece"). In this study, the principal investigator will undertake standard treatment of periorbital wrinkles with Tixel and observe the effect on dry eye disease symptoms and signs.
One-year follow-up prospective observational study involving male and female patients (over 18-years-old) with unilateral or bilateral knee osteoarthritis treated with intraarticular injection of stromal vascular fraction (SVF) treatment. Clinical, biological and radiological data before the treatment and 1-month, 6-month and a year after are collected. The research hypothesis supports that SVF treatment enhance functionality and quality of live, relieves pain and improves magnetic resonance images of joint cartilage in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
This study aim to compare a new postural garment (Posture Plus Force ®) versus exercises in women with non specific cervical pain. The investigators focus on nurses and allied health professionals due to the importance of posture in work related musculoskeletal disorders.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of reamed intramedullary nails in tibial shaft fractures (as a standard treatment), in raising intracompartmental pressures and therefore determine if they are a risk factor for compartmental syndrome.
A study to assess the safety and efficacy of moxifloxacin compared to that of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid for the treatment of subjects with acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis.
Moxifloxacin, is being tested at approximately 60 study centres in 15 countries to determine if this drug, when taken periodically in addition to the patients normal treatment, is effective at reducing the number of flare-ups of chronic bronchitis he has. Approximately 1132 subjects will participate, and it is expected that the study will run for 2 years in order to reach that goal. The patients individual involvement in the study will be 17 months. Moxifloxacin will be compared to a placebo drug (no active ingredients). The study medication (moxifloxacin or placebo) will be taken in addition to the patients normal medication for chronic bronchitis. In addition to the first clinic visit, called a screening visit, the patient will be required to come back to the clinic for ten more study visits, every 8 weeks. At the first visit the study co-ordinator will provide him with the dates for all the visits. Over a period of 48 weeks the patient will return to the clinic on 6 occasions where he will receive the study medication which he will take for five days, in addition to his normal treatment for chronic bronchitis. After this time the patient will enter a follow up period for 24 weeks, where he will come to the clinic for assessments and continue to take his normal medication but not receive the study drug. A complete medical history will be taken at the first visit, including the patients past and current smoking habit. A breath test will be performed to assess how well his lungs are functioning. In addition, he will also be asked to provide a sputum sample for a microbiological examination to identify any bacteria present in the sample. The patient must be able to provide a sputum sample at the screening visit. If the patient meets all the inclusion / exclusion criteria for the study, he will be allocated randomly to one of the following treatment groups at the second visit.- Treatment group 1: Receives moxifloxacin orally once daily for five days.- Treatment group 2: Receives a matching placebo once daily for five days.In between each visit (four weeks after your clinic visit), the study site co-ordinator will contact the patient to check on his well being. If the patient or the doctor decides to stop the patients participation in the trial for any reason, the patient will be required to return to the clinic for a physical examination, take a breath test, provide a sputum sample (if possible) and have a blood sample taken.
This is a multicenter, randomized, open-label, assessor-blind, event-driven, non-inferiority program for efficacy with a study treatment duration of 3, 6 or 12 months in patients with confirmed acute symptomatic pulmonary embolism (PE) with or without symptomatic Deep-Vein Thrombosis (DVT) (Einstein-PE).
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of LAS 34273 compared to placebo in patients with moderate to severe COPD during one year of treatment.
