There are about 294 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in United Arab Emirates. 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.
dry eye disease after corneal collagen cross linking affect ocular function leading to reduced vision, photophobia, glare, halos, and foreign body sensation.
This is randomized, blinded and controlled design. Among the randomly selected subjects who have been vaccinated with two doses of Inactivated COVID-19 vaccine (Vero cell), based on a step-wise approach, the subjects will receive one dose of recombinant COVID-19 vaccine sequentially at different shedules of 1-3 months, 3-6 months and ≥ 6 months after two doses of vaccination, and the subjects vaccinated at different schedules will be randomly assigned to different sequential immunization groups. At the same time, each sequential immunization group will be matched with a control group with the inactivated COVID-19 vaccine (vero cells) as the booster dose.

The use of extended embryo culture to the blastocyst stage and preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A) has enabled identification and selection of embryos with the best developmental potential and improved in vitro fertilization (IVF) clinical outcomes. While numerous types of commercially available human embryo culture media exist for culture to the blastocyst stage, the impact of culture conditions on blastocyst development and aneuploidy formation is not well understood. Culture conditions are very important for the success of the IVF cycle, many of the factors involved in the process have been extensively studied, including the use of sequential culture medium vs single step culture medium, humidified incubators vs dry incubators and refreshing the medium on day 3 vs uninterrupted culture till day 5. However, none of the studies investigated the effect on euploid rate in a sibling oocyte design with PGT-A, which requires culture till day 7.
Need for study There are a few studies published on this topic from various parts of the globe and the results are mixed. Hence further research is required in this area and none of the studies have included samples from the Middle East. Some studies done in this area focus on biomechanical aspects of gait (Cherni, 2018) and our study mainly focuses on functional aspects of gait and quality of life. Studies done on this area focus highly on gait components and very little is available on the literature on improving balance. Since balance and stability are crucial for walking, it was decided to exclusively assess balance. Due to a wide range of therapeutic benefits, it is paramount to evaluate the effectiveness of different therapies provided to improve gait. Aim of the study: The aim of the proposed research is to investigate the effectiveness of robotic assisted gait training using Lokomat device as an adjunct in improving gait, balance and quality of life in children with cerebral palsy.

Insufficient clinical evidence correlates the progression of diabetic kidney disease with electrolyte homeostasis in patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), especially in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) population and what are the most effective interventions to slow chronic renal failure progression. In our research, we test the hypothesis that low serum magnesium and potassium levels are directly associated with the decline of kidney function in diabetic patients who did not have severely impaired renal function at baseline. In addition, we describe the effect of long-term multifactorial adherence interventions on medication adherence, diet adherence and follow-up visits using a telemedicine approach such as mobile applications in reducing the progression of chronic kidney disease and other diabetes-related complications. This study is a single-blind randomized control trial to demonstrate the causal relationship between potassium and magnesium levels and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) decline. The intervention group will be evaluated for manifestations of electrolyte imbalance and correction of serum magnesium and/or potassium levels will be initiated based on the last updated laboratory test. Moreover, they will receive education to reinforce diet and exercise changes at each follow up visit by a specialized dietitian with pharmacist-led comprehensive medication therapy management utilizing multifactorial adherence interventions to measure potential drug-drug or drug-food interactions, as well as medication and follow-up adherence through an integrated mobile application and fixed medication possession ratio (FMPR). This research is under progress, and summary of its findings will be reported. This study will suggest if additional national monitoring guidelines may be warranted. In addition, it will reduce diabetic burden, medication cost in UAE and improve patient satisfaction by reducing or delaying the progression of diabetic kidney disease in diabetic patients.
In this study, a multidisciplinary team of researchers was established including credible researchers from the UAE, Australia and the United Kingdom to launch the First United Arab Emirates 3-year birth cohort study. The study aims to recruit 250 pregnant Emirati women within their first trimester, which is defined by the study as from 8 to 12 weeks pregnant, recruited from obstetric and gynaecology clinics in the UAE. Participants will be recruited via face to face interviews and will receive a total of 11 visits with 1 visit in each trimester of pregnancy and 8 visits after delivery. Maternal data collection includes, socio-demographic and lifestyle factors, dietary intake, anthropometric measurements, physical activity, maternal psychological state, and blood samples for biochemical analysis. Post-partum, visits will take place when the child is 0.5, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24 months old, with data collection including infant anthropometric measurements, young child feeding practices, dietary intake, supplement use and the eating environment at home, as well as all maternal data collection described above, apart from blood samples. Additional data collection for the child includes developmental assessments taking place at three timepoints, 1) within 2 weeks of birth, 2) at 10-14 months and 3) at 22 - 26 months of age. Developmental assessments for the infant include vision, health, neurological examination, neurodevelopmental and sleep assessments.
Rashakaty (Fitness for Me) study aimed to design a new technologies-based intervention using a website and smart phone applications and to test the feasibility of implementing a lifestyle intervention using these technologies for overweight and obese university students. The intervention was implemented in two universities in the United Arab Emirates
