There are about 60 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Armenia. 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.
Nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and Nasal High Flow (NHF) therapy are two primary therapies for the treatment of respiratory distress in newborns. However, a considerable number of infants, who are initially treated with CPAP and NHF, will develop worsening respiratory failure and eventually require intubation for mechanical ventilation and the administration of surfactant. Infants who fail noninvasive respiratory therapy may suffer the consequences of delayed intubation, surfactant administration and other adverse outcomes. The most challenging decisions in the management of respiratory distress after birth is to decide when to move from a noninvasive respiratory support to invasive mechanical ventilation and give surfactant to decrease pulmonary damage and improve outcomes. There are no clinically adequate predictors of early CPAP failure at the time of admission to the neonatal intensive care unit. Many measurements have been investigated for their ability to predict CPAP failure in infants such as fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2), partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2), PaO2/FiO2 and the stable micro bubble test as soon as possible after birth. Roca and colleagues first established the ROX index to predict the success of NHF therapy in adults with pneumonia. The ROX index combines three common measurements: FiO2, peripheral oxygen saturation (SpO2) and respiratory rate. Combining the ROX values with the change in the respiratory rate and FiO2 can indicate whether escalation is required. It was proposed that XY plot of the key components of ROX may show the direction of changes in vector form. The investigators hypothesized that the ROX index and ROX vector can be used for predicting the failure of CPAP and NHF in neonates.
This study will evaluate the relative bioavailability of ginsenosides Rg5, Rk1, and Ck of Red ginseng HRG80 preparations containing gamma-cyclodextrin (GCD) in the blood plasma of healthy subjects after oral administration of two different formulations of HRG80: A. Capsules containing red ginseng preparation HRG80 (reference product) B. Chewable tablets containing red ginseng preparation HRG80 and GCD (modified product). Dissolution testing measures the rate and extend water solubility of ginsenosides from the reference (A) and the modified (B) products. The difference of in vitro dissolution profiles between the reference (A) and modified (B) products will be assessed.
In this study, we will evaluate the relative bioavailability of Berberine (BB) from capsules containing Indian Barberry (Berberis aristate DC.) Bark and Root Extract in the blood plasma of healthy subjects after oral administration of: A. Capsules containing Berberine and GCD (BBA Berberine MetX™ Ultra Absorption, 250 mg) B. Capsules containing Berberine (BB, Berberine MetX™, 500 mg) - (reference product).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of implanting 2 novel interposition supraciliary implant as a stand-alone therapy for lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) who have failed at least one class of topical medical therapy
Eligible Glaucoma patients will undergo pre-surgery examination including: medicines list, blood tests and ECG. On surgery day: intraocular pressure (IOP) will be measured. Then a sub-conjunctival injection of Mitomycin C will be administered . The Minimally Invasive Micro Sclerostomy (MIMS) procedure is designed to create a drainage channel at the sclera-corneal junction by penetrating through the wall [scleral tissue] . MIMS procedure may be combined with cataract surgery. Patients will be followed up to 52 weeks post operation.
The purpose of the trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of MarzAA for on-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes in hemophilia A or B patients with inhibitors compared with their standard of care (SOC).
Treatment with nasal high flow therapy (NHF) is an increasingly popular method of respiratory support in newborns. Safe and effective use of NHF requires selection of an appropriate nasal prong-to-nares ratio because leak can influence the delivered pressure. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to investigate the effect of using different NHF cannula size on peripheral oxygen saturation in newborns with respiratory distress.
Since December 2019 the world has been shaken with an enormous global threat: the Covid-19 pandemic. This new kind of coronavirus is generating an unprecedented impact both on the general population and on the healthcare systems in most countries. Health services are trying to expand their capacity to respond to the pandemic, taking actions such as increasing the number of beds; acquiring necessary equipment to provide intensive therapy (ventilators), and calling retired health professionals and health students so they can assist the overwhelmed health care workforce. Unfortunately, these organizational changes at health facilities, along with the fears and concerns of becoming ill with the virus or infecting their families, put an enormous emotional burden on workers in health services which may lead to negative outcomes on mental health in this population. Recent cross-sectional studies in China indicate that health service workers exposed to people with Covid-19 reported higher rates of depressive and anxious symptoms. This negative impact on mental health among health workers in China has also been informally reported in other countries where the Covid-19 pandemic has been devastating in its effects (such as Spain and Italy), as well as in countries where the pandemic is becoming a growing public health problem. This is particularly relevant in regions with fewer resources (Latin America, North Africa), where there are limited means and the response from the health system is usually insufficient. Moreover, it is necessary to study these negative effects longitudinally considering that some effects will appear over time (post-traumatic stress). The COVID-19 HEalth caRe wOrkErS (HEROES) study is a large, bottom-up, South-North initiative aimed to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of health care workers (HCWs). HEROES encompasses a wide variety of academic institutions in 19 LMICs and 8 HICs, in partnership with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and with support from the World Health Organization (WHO). The HEROES study is led by Dr. Rubén Alvarado at University of Chile, and Dr. Ezra Susser and Franco Mascayano at Columbia U Mailman School of Public Health.
This study will investigate the effect of coral calcium complex supplementation on BMD of osteoporotic individuals either when used alone or in combination with ibandronate. Ibandronate alone will also be tested in comparison to coral calcium supplementation alone or in combination.
In the BP-CON-ESH study we are going to include and analyze treated hypertensive patients seen consecutively by the ESH Excellence Centres. Blood pressure will be measured as usually done in the office, but care will be adopted to make measurements highly standardized in all Centres. The primary goals will be to determine the global, regional and country rates of hypertension control in Europe. Other goals will be to identify global and regional factors associated with blood pressure control in different European regions. The results obtained in the BP-CON-ESH project will be used to refine treatment strategies for improvement of blood pressure control and will serve as a basis for assessing future changes and trends in Europe.
