There are about 325 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.
OPERA Study is a randomized, open-label, prospective, pilot, and a monocentric clinical trial involving outpatients within Abu Dhabi Stem Cells Center (ADSCC) with a confirmed diagnosis of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). The patients will be randomly allocated (1:1) in a parallel assignment involving two groups of participants: Group A (Regular-intensity arm): Extracorporeal Photopheresis (ECP) on a regular-intensity regimen described in the Protocol as add-on T1DM standard of care, or Group B (Accelerated-intensity arm): ECP on an accelerated regimen plus T1DM standard of care.
Robot-assisted gait training (RAGT) can provide a longer training duration with a higher repetition of stepping while maintaining a stable pattern of movement. However, the existing evidence of its effectiveness is not clear. The aim of this study is to investigate the feasibility and the effect of increased frequency (4 times per week) of RAGT compared to the most common frequency (2 times per week). we hypothesize that increased frequency of RAGT will result in greater improvements on the gait functions. This research will investigate the effect of increased frequency on robotic assisted gait training (RAGT) in a frequency of 4 times per a week, and will compare the effect of robotic assisted gait training (RAGT) with increased frequency and with usual frequency (2 times per a week) in regards with gait functional parameters such as balance, speed, endurance, and quality of gait among cerebral palsy (CP) children's.
Shoulder pain is one of the most prevalent and disabling musculoskeletal condition. A new diagnostic terminology used to describe shoulder pain is rotator cuff-related shoulder pain (RCRSP), as histological findings were similar in many of shoulder condition such as; subacromial impingement syndrome, subacromial pain syndrome and rotator cuff tendinopathy The objectives was to find the effectiveness of single exercise into pain program versus Shoulder Symptom Modification Procedure (SSMP) with early tendon loading, Heavy Slow Resistance exercise in patients with rotator cuff-related shoulder pain. The investigators will conducted a randomized clinical trail in out patient physiotherapy department at Thumbay hospitals Ajman, in patients with rotator cuff-related shoulder pain . After meeting the inclusion criteria, participants were randomized into Single exercises into pain program (SEP) (intervention group) or Shoulder Symptom Modification Procedure (SSMP) with early tendon loading, Heavy Slow Resistance exercise program (control group). A 13 weeks of outpatient musculoskeletal rehabilitation sessions consisting of 3 sessions per week will provided to both the groups. Intervention group will receive single exercises into pain by preforming resisted isometric shoulder abduction with TheraBand and progressed to functional rehabilitation, whereas control group will receive a combination of shoulder symptom modification to control the pain, early tendon loading to target the series elastic component of the muscle and heavy slow resistance program to target contractile component of the muscles and improve mechanical strength followed by functional rehabilitation. The investigators will measured Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI), Numerical Pain Rating Scales (NPRS), and Digital Wall (D-WALL) H-Sport Quality Of Life at the baseline assessment, 6th weeks and 13th weeks
Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most underdiagnosed and undertreated medical condition worldwide . The microbiome and vitamin D deeply influence each other and the immune system in many different ways. It is evident that the immune system and the microbiome are interconnected, and that vitamin D is a critical intermediary player in this dynamic . Probiotics were shown to increase vitamin D intestinal absorption and increase vitamin D receptor protein expression and transcriptional activity . Likewise, vitamin D receptor status seems to be crucial in regulating the mechanisms of action of probiotics and modulating their anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and anti-infective benefits, suggesting a two-sided pathway . The objective of this study is to assess the different absorption of Vitamin D (Vit. D) between patients treated with Vit. D supplementation combined to a probiotic containing L. casei DG® and patients treated with Vitamin D supplementation and placebo
SYBRA is an open-label, phase 3, randomized controlled clinical trial that aims to assess the use of synovial biopsies in predicting response to biologic therapy in patients with rheumatoid arthritis that have failed disease-modifying drugs. The project has the potential to help change the current practice by offering the best treatment option. The decision to choose the best treatment for a particular patient is especially important in the context of the growing number of therapies available as a first-line option and the lack of specific biomarkers to predict response to treatment.
The purpose of the study is to assess the relationship between body posture and dynamic balance in adults with childhood-onset asthma and compare them to a non-asthmatic control group matched for gender, age, weight, and height.
Maintaining proper oral hygiene is essential in the prevention of oral as well as general illness. The use of herbal medicine in dentistry is growing exponentially over the years. Today, herbal medicine is considered an effective alternative to manufactured medication. The objective of this current randomized control study is to assess the anti-plaque efficiency of Miswak (Salvadora Persica) and Eucalyptus toothpaste in the treatment of gingivitis. Materials and Methods: This randomized experimental study enrolled 30 healthy individuals as controls and 30 individuals with mild to moderate gingivitis. The study lasted 20 days and included a two-week washout period between Miswak and Eucalyptus toothpaste. The gingival and plaque index were measured at specific time intervals during the research period.
The present prospective observational multicentric study will assess the nutritional status of critically ill patients, cumulative calorie and protein balance and the effect of calorie and protein balance on clinical outcomes.
Evidence has./ indicated increased risk of type 2 diabetes with white rice consumption in Asian population. It is shown that glycemic response to carbohydrate-containing food may differ in people of different ethnicities. The large increment in glucose concentration induced by high glycemic index food often exaggerates the body's anabolic responses, which facilitates the overproduction of insulin and eventually results in pancreatic beta-cell failure, causing type 2 diabetes mellitus. Given that rice is the staple food of Asians and Emiratis, and extent to which rice influences postprandial glycemia could have potential relevance in the prevention and treatment of diabetes. In this study, the investigators intend to compare the glycemic and hunger satiety response to rice among overweight Emiratis, Asians, and Caucasian. The primary objective of the study is to compare the glycemic (glucose) and hunger satiety (hormone ghrelin and peptide YY) response to glucose and rice among overweight Emiratis, Asians, and Caucasians.
To study the influence of different daily rec-FSH dosages (150 IU versus 300 IU), performed in the same patient in consecutive cycles, on the relation between FSH- and LH-receptors of the granulosa cells of the growing follicle.
