There are about 10744 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Belgium. 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.
Our aim was to compare 2 postoperative complication scoring systems in predicting length of hospital stay and in-hospital costs after colorectal resections.
Due to increasing age and an increasing prevalence rate of neurocognitive disorders such as Mild Cognitive Impairment and dementia, independent living may become challenging. The use of socially assistive robots is one solution that can enable older adults with cognitive impairment to remain independent. However, at present, there is a lack of knowledge about the impact of assistive robots on older adults with MCI and their caregivers. A 12-month trial will be conducted to measure the impact of the robot. A total of 120 participants living in independent living facilities, nursing homes or patients part of a rehabilitation program will be recruited. The outcome measures will be defined based on experiences from previous pilot trials with the robot. The primary outcomes will be active engagement and loneliness. Participation, physical and cognitive functioning will be defined as the secondary outcomes.
Previous research by TARGID (KU Leuven) has demonstrated the feasibility to assess gastric content volume by means of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) while simultaneously evaluating gastric motor function by means of an isovolumetric balloon technique. This and other research concluded that in general, the motility readout of the isovolumetric balloon is associated with gastric contractions. However, the exact relation between individual gastric contractions and individual intraballoon pressure waves remains incompletely understood. Simultaneous assessment of gastric motility by means of an isovolumetric balloon and dynamic cine-MRI can validate that slow, high-amplitude intraballoon pressure waves are indeed induced by gastric muscle contractions. This evaluation might also enable us to attribute artefacts present in the pressure signal to physiologic processes such as cardiac, respiratory, intestinal and whole-body movements. To date substantial uncertainty exists on the optimal procedural approach to evaluate gastric motility simultaneously with cine-MRI and the isovolumetric balloon. The aim of this pilot study is to verify the feasibility of a several aspects of a larger confirmatory study protocol. This includes the evaluation of contrast of the balloon catheter on MRI (this would omit the need for radiographic confirmation), timelines, practical hurdles, analysis procedures and data management.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of NASAFYTOL® on COVID-19 positive hospitalized patients as a supportive treatment to standard-of-care in improving clinical parameters safely during hospital admission (maximum 14 days). The study is a standard-of-care comparative, open, parallel two-arms and randomized trial in 50 adult patients positive to COVID-19 infection and hospitalized. It will be monocentric but may be extended to several investigation sites (multicentric) depending on the evolution of the epidemic within the hospitals.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the safety and tolerability of JNJ-67835989 versus placebo after single (or divided) oral dose administration (ascending dose levels) in healthy participants, pharmacokinetics (PK) of JNJ-67835989 in plasma and urine after single (or divided) oral dose administration in healthy participants, effects of JNJ-67835989 following single (or divided) oral dose administration in healthy participants on cardiovascular parameters, effects of JNJ-67835989 following single (or divided) oral dose administration on dissociative symptoms in healthy participants, and sedative effects of JNJ-67835989 following single (or divided) oral dose administration in healthy participants.
This is a multicenter, prospective, single arm, non-randomized, open-label, phase 2 clinical study to evaluate safety and efficacy of valemetostat tosylate (DS-3201b) in patients with relapsed or refractory B cell lymphoma with 6 cohorts of patients including 2 biology-driven cohorts. Up to 141 patients will be enrolled in 6 different cohorts (40 patients with aggressive B-cell lymphoma, 41 with follicular lymphoma (FL), 20 with Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL) and 20 with other indolent lymphomas, and 20 patients with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL)). FL patients with EZH2 mutant (gain of function mutations) will be enrolled in the cohort 2bis. At least 8 aggressive B-cell lymphoma patients with EZH2 mutant will be enrolled in the cohort 1. The primary endpoint is the overall response rate (ORR) determined by investigator assessment.
In this study, adults with Fabry Disease who have not had any treatment for this condition will be treated with Replagal. The main aim of the study is to check if Replagal improves kidney function and heart structure of participants with Fabry Disease. Participants will receive one Replagal infusion every other week for up to 104 weeks. They will visit the clinic every 12 to 14 weeks during treatment with a follow-up visit 2 weeks after treatment.
The investigators would only include the children who received propofol (Propolipid, Fresenius Kabi, Schelle, Belgium) for sedation, the investigators would exclude the children that didn't receive propofol during the procedure. The investigators would analyze the incidence of hypersensitivity reaction to propofol in children allergic to egg, soy or both egg and soy and to compare those with the incidence of hypersensitivity reactions in children without allergy to egg and/or to soy. Those data were retrieved following longitudinal follow-up after the intervention. Allergy tests by skin and radioallergosorbent tests were performed in all children before the gastrointestinal endoscopy under anesthesia took place, but no results were known at the time of the sedation. A patient was defined as allergic to egg and/or soy if the patient had specific S-IgE level more than the normal level set by our institution (0.35 kU/L). The investigators would also investigate the influence of other obtained parameters in the dataset (age, ASA score, weight category, type of investigation, respiratory and neurological comorbidities, respiratory infections, GERD, other allergies) on those results with multivariate analysis. We considered that clinical features suggesting a hypersensitivity reaction present during anaesthesia were cutaneous, respiratory or cardiovascular manifestations. Depending on the severity of the reaction, necessitating prompt hemodynamic resuscitation with the administration of epinephrine, antihistamines, inhaled beta-agonists or corticosteroids.
The study will be a prospective, randomized, split-face, double blind, controlled, clinical trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Lumina™ for the treatment of Nasolabial Folds (NLFs). Subjects will be randomized to receive treatment (Lumina™) in one NLF and control (Restylane® Defyne) in the contra-lateral NLF. 118 subjects will be treated.
Sickle cell disease is associated with significant morbi-mortality hence the interest in an early and targeted care. At present, there is no plasmatic marker able to identify infants at higher risk of developping severe complications later in life. However, recent studies have demonstrated a correlation between certain complications of the disease and biomarkers of the endothelial dysfunction characterizing it. Investigators prospectively followed a cohort of children diagnosed with SCD through the universal neonatal screening using inflammatory and haemostatic plasmatic markers to study their annual evolution. Investigators then will evaluate potential associations between these biological markers and the occurrence of SCD related complications. A secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the repercussions of therapeutic intervention on these markers. .
