There are about 45 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Bahrain. 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.
Observational study is to demonstrate a clinically significant reduction of ionizing radiation exposure during transcatheter ablation of supraventricular tachycardias using the EnSite precision mapping system in a real-world clinical setting without compromising efficacy and safety.
Dried dates (Phoenix dactylifera) have the second highest phytoestrogen content of any fruit, only secondary to dried apricots with 329ug of phytoestrogens per 100g. The date palm is one of oldest planted trees on the earth at around 2,000 years old. Dates are nutritionally rich and a good source of fiber and carbohydrates and their potential medicinal and nutritional effects have been suggested in a number of studies. Date sugars have also been shown to be phenol rich, potent antioxidant, and strong inhibitor of α -glycosidase that may also have benefit in diabetes. In addition, dates are rich in micronutrients that may also have benefit for diabetes and insulin resistance . Dates have a glycemic index of 50 and studies have shown that the consumption of differing varieties of dates do not significantly affect the acute glycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of date phytoestrogens on HbA1C and fasting blood glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes in comparison to the same glycemic load of raisins that have low phytoestrogen content.
This is an open-label, interventional exploratory study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 5-ALA-Phosphate + SFC in subjects with acute moderate or severe respiratory illness secondary to infection with SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19) involving 40 subjects. The primary objective is to evaluate the safety of 4-week oral administration of 5-ALAPhosphate + SFC. This study is expected to last for 4 weeks and will include follow-up until day 28 in the hospital or in an outpatient setting if the subjects are discharged earlier.
This is a multicenter, randomized, double blind, parallel placebo controlled, phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate the protective efficacy, safety and immunogenicity of inactivated SARS-CoV-2 vaccines in healthy population 18 years old and above.
Hydroxychloroquine is widely used to treat autoimmune diseases. Clinical investigation has found that a high concentration of cytokines were detected in the plasma of critically ill patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, therefore, hydroxychloroquine as anti-inflammatory agents may reduce this response in accord with their use in autoimmune disease where the cytokine response can be reduced. Favipiravir is an antiviral drug developed in Japan that the data sheet notes that it is a pyrazinecarboxamide derivative with activity against influenza viruses, west nile virus, yellow fever virus, foot and mouth disease virus as well as against flaviviruses, arenaviruses, bunyaviruses and alphaviruses. In February the drug was used for COVID-19 disease in China and was declared effective in treatment, and a report published (in press) comparing Favipiravir with Lopinavir /ritonavir suggested that Favipiravir was superior for prevention of disease progression and viral clearance. The objective of this pilot study is to compare three arms: hydroxychloroquine; favipiravir; standard care (no specific SARS-CoV-2 treatment) only, in symptomatic patients infected by SARS-CoV-2 in an open label randomized clinical trial. The difference between groups will allow an effect size to be determined for a definitive clinical trial.
Plasma therapy using convalescent plasma has been shown to be effective in severe acute respiratory syndrome, Ebola virus infection and in H1N1 influenza. More recently there has been a report of the use of convalescent plasma in the treatment of 5 ventilated COVID-19 patients with the suggestion of expedited recovery as the patients improved 1 week after the transfusion. However, this was not a clinical trial and the patients were on other antiviral medication.; therefore, there is a need to undertake such a trial to see if deploying plasma with SARS-CoV-2 neutralizing antibody has utility in managing patients infected with COVID-19 in respiratory distress. The objective of this pilot study is to compare plasma therapy using convalescent plasma with antibody against SARS-CoV-2 to usual supportive therapy in COVID-19 patients with pneumonia and hypoxia, and to determine if the clinical course is improved. The difference between groups will allow an effect size to be determined for a definitive clinical trial.
Unfortunately for some infertile women, gonadotrophin administration results in a desultory ovarian response. While this is commonly due to diminished ovarian reserve, as indicated by advanced age and/or elevated basal day 3 FSH concentrations, a subset of these patients are <41 years old and have normal FSH concentrations. To overcome this problem several strategies have been reported, with limited success. With approval of the Board, 100 women with a history of previous poor response to vigorous gonadotrophin stimulation. All with AFC ≤3, AMH;≤0.5 and they give only ≤3 oocytes in their previous cycles will be included in this study using this new protocol: clomiphene citrate 150 for 7 days starting on DAY2, associated with HMG 300 IU & Groth hormone 8 units in alternating days (i.e.; HMG on D2,4,6,8 while GH on D3,5,7,9) then folliculomonitoring will be started on D9, then Antagonist may be added till triggering then will see the response compared to their own ovarian response before
a comparative study among dual trigger, urinary HCG and recombinant HCG regarding the outcome of ICSI- antagonist cycles
Investigators will test the superiority of Superiority Trial of Fluticasone-Vilanterol as needed in mild asthma compared to standard of care
Eligible subjects will be those age 18 years or more with mono-microbial blood stream infection caused by E. coli, Klebsiella species, Enterobacter species, Serratia species, Citrobacter species, or Proteus species, who have achieved adequate source control, are afebrile and hemodynamically stable for 48 hours or more and have received microbiologically active intravenous therapy for 3-5 days. The bloodstream isolate must be susceptible to amoxicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanate, fluoroquinolones, oral cephalosporins and/or trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and the subject must be able to take oral medication directly or through a feeding tube. Exclusions criteria include allergy to all in-vitro active antimicrobials which are available in oral formulations, pregnancy, infective endocarditis, central nervous system infection, terminal illness with expected survival less than 14 days, absolute neutrophil count less than 1,000/ml and hematopoietic or solid organ transplantation within the preceding 90 days. Randomization will be stratified by urinary versus non-urinary source of bacteremia. The primary outcome is treatment failure at 90-days with 10% margin for non-inferiority in the 95% confidence interval around the difference in outcome between the two study groups.
