There are about 48 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.
Early identification of a patient with infection who may develop sepsis is of utmost importance. Unfortunately, this remains elusive because no single clinical measure or test can reflect complex pathophysiological changes in patients with sepsis. However, multiple clinical and laboratory parameters indicate impending sepsis and organ dysfunction. Screening tools using these parameters can help identify the condition, such as SIRS, quick SOFA (qSOFA), National Early Warning Score (NEWS), or Modified Early Warning Score (MEWS). The 2016 SCCM/ESICM task force recommended using qSOFA, while the 2021 Surviving Sepsis Campaign strongly recommended against its use compared with SIRS, NEWS, or MEWS as a single screening tool for sepsis or septic shock. We hypothesised that qSOFA has greater prognostic accuracy than SIRS and EWS (NEWS/NEWS2/MEWS).
Study Design: This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 3 clinical efficacy study evaluating NONS in adult volunteers as a treatment for high-risk asymptomatic and symptomatic individuals with mild COVID-19 infection. thru facility).
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is potentially a deadly disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that targets the lung mainly, resulting in respiratory tract infections in humans. It has developed into a pandemic with serious global public health problems. Recent research has shown that the new SARS-CoV-2 variants reduces the efficacy of the vaccinations and are predominantly more transmissible or infective. A few countries namely Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and Turkey have recently started introducing a booster dose following primary two doses of the COVID-19 immunization series. This study aims to identify which booster dose is more effective; taking a booster dose from the same vaccine initially taken or a booster dose from a different vaccine than initially taken.
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
