NCT ID: NCT06349096 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Facial Skin Wrinkles

Safety And Efficacy Investigation Of The Effects Of ClearLift Q-Switched Nd:Yag 1064nm Laser Module In The Treatment Of Facial Skin Wrinkles

Start date: March 26, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Alma Lasers ClearLift is a fractional non-ablative Q-Switched laser, allowing practitioners to use the benefits of a high intensity QS laser for the treatment of aged skin. Alma Harmony ClearLift uses a fractional QS laser to achieve a deep mechanical effect beneath the epidermis via a photoacustic effect. This creates a controlled dermal wound while leaving the epidermis intact. The wound healing process stimulates growth of new collagen, skin contracture and tightening. This procedure is virtually painless with no downtime and is safe for all skin types. Based on this background, we have considered an interest to design a study aimed at assessing the efficacy and safety of a treatment course with ClearLift Module in patients with facial skin wrinkles

NCT ID: NCT05966571 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Ovarian Innervation Study in Patients With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Start date: July 1, 2023
Study type: Observational

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine disorder characterized by hyperandrogenism, insulin resistance, and ovulatory dysfunction. One of the diagnostic criteria for PCOS is the presence of polycystic ovaries, which are enlarged ovaries with multiple follicles on ultrasound. However, the mechanisms that lead to the development of polycystic ovaries in PCOS are not completely understood. One potential area of investigation is the role of ovarian innervation in the pathophysiology of PCOS. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the ovarian innervation in PCOS patients through ovarian biopsy sampling.

NCT ID: NCT05947903 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Validation of the European Oncology Quality of Life Toolkit

Start date: April 1, 2024
Study type: Observational

The improvement or preservation of quality of life (QoL) is one of the three pillars of the European Union (EU) Mission on Cancer, which underpins the needs of patients from cancer diagnosis throughout treatment, survivorship, and advanced terminal stages. Clinical studies and real-world data show that the use of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) for QoL assessment in routine oncology practice has positive effects on patient wellbeing and healthcare resource utilization. However, full implementation of PROMs is not yet part of standard of care and is not adequately considered in cancer policies and programs. A comprehensive tool incorporating the perspective of patients at different stages of the disease trajectory and widely applicable across Europe is still lacking. The European Oncology Quality of Life Toolkit (EUonQoL-Kit) is a unified patient-centred tool for the assessment of QoL, developed from preferences and priorities of people with past or current cancer experience. The EUonQoL-Kit includes three electronic questionnaires, specifically designed for different disease phases (patients in active treatment, survivors, and patients in palliative care), available in both static and dynamic (Computer Adaptive Testing, CAT) versions and in several European languages. This is a multicentre observational study, with the following aims: - The primary aim is to perform the psychometric validation of the EUonQoL-Kit. - Secondary aims are to assess its acceptability, to validate the CAT version, and to provide estimates of QoL across different European countries. The EUonQoL-Kit will be administered to a sample of cancer patients and survivors from 46 European cancer centres. The sample will include patients in active treatment (group A), survivors (group B), and patients in Palliative Care (group C). Each centre will recruit 100 patients (40 from group A, 30 from group B, 30 from group C), for an overall sample size of 4,600 patients (at least 4,000 patients are assumed to be enrolled, due to an expected lower recruitment rate of 10-15%). Three sub-samples of patients (each corresponding to 10% of the total sample for each centre) will fill in an additional questionnaire: - EORTC QLQ-C30, to test concurrent validity. - Live-CAT version, to test the feasibility of such implementation. - EUonQoL-Kit, 2-7 days after the first completion, to assess test-retest reliability.

NCT ID: NCT05719259 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Ventilator Associated Pneumonia

Perpetual Observational Study - Ventilator Associated Pneumonia

Start date: August 3, 2022
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

Ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) is one of the most frequent healthcare associated infections in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and a significant burden among ICU patients under invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV). Several preventive and therapeutic treatment options are being developed in the field of VAP that will require evaluation in future randomized controlled trials (RCTs). RCTs are the gold standard for evaluating medical interventions but are difficult to perform in a population at risk of, or with, VAP.

NCT ID: NCT05648383 Recruiting - Hypertension Clinical Trials

Promote Health With Digital Tools Among Adults With Type 2 Diabetes/Prediabetes and/or Hypertension

Start date: October 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The DigiCare4You project will use digital tools for early screening, prevention and management of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and hypertension (HTN). An implementation study will be conducted, targeting more than 10,000 families in two Middle Income Countries (Albania and Bulgaria) and two High Income Countries (Greece and Spain), considering vulnerable groups. Schools will be used as an entry point to the community. Building on an existing procedure for children's periodic growth assessment, conducted by school nurses or in collaboration with local community health centers, parents/ caregivers will be screened via a non-invasive self-reported digital screening tool. Those identified at high risk for T2D will be referred for glycaemia testing (fasting plasma glucose and glycated hemoglobin, HbA1c), as well as blood pressure (BP) measurements, at local community health centers. Parents/ caregivers confirmed to have pre-diabetes or diabetes (and possibly high BP) will be invited to join a mHealth self-management intervention coordinated by the community healthcare workforce. The goal of this intervention is to involve high-risk adults in the treatment process and decision-making on personalized behavioral goals (e.g. diet, physical activity, smoking, alcohol, medication compliance) that meet their needs, and ultimately improve the health status of parents/caregivers, as well as the lifestyle of the entire family.

Start date: November 18, 2021
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Multi-Center, Randomized, Double-Blinded Phase 3 Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of IMU-838 versus Placebo in Adults with Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis (ENSURE-1)

NCT ID: NCT05060718 Completed - Clinical trials for Ventilator Associated Pneumonia

HOspital NEtwork STudy - Preparation for a Randomized Evaluation of Anti-Pneumonia Strategies

Start date: May 20, 2020
Study type: Observational

Hospital Acquired and Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (HAP/VAP) pose a significant burden to patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Reported incidence ranges from 10-16% in all ICU patients (including HAP and VAP) and around 20-30% in ventilated patients (VAP). Patients with HAP/VAP have a high mortality rate. The estimated attributable mortality of VAP is 6-13%. Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) are the gold standard for evaluating medical interventions, but are difficult to perform in this population. Several preventive and therapeutic treatment options are being developed that will require evaluation in phase-III trials. These trials are challenging due to the relatively low incidence of the outcome (e.g. HAP/VAP) or of the domain under study (e.g. specific antibiotic resistant infections) and the requirement of informed consent in critically ill patients. There is a need for a well-organized and well-trained international RCT network that enables efficient execution of a series of RCTs in this population. The aim of the current study is to set up an infrastructure to prospectively enroll patients at risk of HAP/VAP in ICUs in several European countries. Site personnel will be trained to obtain a GCP (Good Clinical Practice) certification (if not already done), to timely identify and enroll patients at risk of HAP/VAP, to timely identify occurrence of HAP/VAP, collect informed consent forms, collect source data, enter data into a clinical database, and use a dedicated system to reply to queries. Site sample collection, processing, identifying the causative organism, and antibiotic susceptibility testing will be validated and adapted if required where possible. Where site infrastructure and regulations allow, the possibility of automated data collection of included participants will be explored to ensure sustainability of the future platform. Furthermore, collected data will be used to inform future diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic trials. E.g. they may support assumptions in sample size calculations and expected number of enrolled participants, they may help in prioritizing interventions, or they may be used in simulations of adaptive trials to optimize decision rules.

NCT ID: NCT04887142 Recruiting - COVID-19 Clinical Trials

Predictors of Disease Severity in COVID-19 Patients

Start date: April 4, 2020
Study type: Observational

The primary goal of the VIRIONUM project is to analyze the association of clinical, socio-demographic characteristics of patients and their genetic polymorphism, inflammatory and other biochemical markers with disease progression and death in subjects with COVID-19 disease. The research is an observational, cohort study with nested-case control design, including adult, male and female COVID-19 inpatients. Primary dependent variable will be outcome of disease, defined as discharge from the hospital or death. The outcomes and putative risk factors will be analyzed using binary logistic regressions. The proposed multi- and inter-disciplinary study should provide additional scientific evidence about risk factors for the development of severe forms of the disease and the COVID-19-related death.
