There are about 8543 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Switzerland. 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.
Prospective, randomized, double-blinded, trial regarding the effect of local wound infiltration at the end of spine surgery; randomizing 1:1:1 between NaCl, Ropivacain, Levobupivacaine combined with Tramadol
The objectives of this study are to evaluate the performance and safety of the Vantage Mobile-Bearing Total Angle System. This study will follow subjects for a period of up to 10 years post-surgery.
This exploratory project will evaluate the biomechanical and functional intermediate-term outcome (2 to 5 years) after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (ARCR) with modern non-invasive ultrasound techniques (especially shear wave elastography (SWE)), standardized physical examinations and patient-reported outcomes. It is to evaluate the biomechanical properties of tendons and muscles of the rotator cuff, as well as the biceps muscle after ARCR and to compare elasticity and structural properties to the healthy contralateral side.
The investigators retrospectively analyzed patients who underwent extraarticular corrective osteotomy of the distal radius via a palmar approach and without the use of a bone graft, even in the absence of cortical contact after corrective osteotomy. The goal of this retrospective observational study is to determine whether secondary dislocation or nonunion occurs after corrective osteotomy without bone grafting.
The present trial is a single center, prospective, observational pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics (PKPD) cohort study investigating whether patients suffering from a hematological disorder and treated with amikacin due to febrile neutropenia (FN) achieve the predefined amikacin target concentration (Cmax ≥60 mg/L).
The goal of this clinical trial is to determine the safety and efficacy of IP-001 for intratumoral injection administration following thermal ablation of a solid tumor.
In this multi-center open-label, non-randomized phase I/II intervention study three consecutive doses of donor-derived EBV Tscm-CTLs will be administered to 10 patients with treatment-refractory EBV lymphoma, diseases or PTLDs. EBV Tscm-CTLs will derive from hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) or third-party donors.
Researchers are looking for a better way to prevent an ischemic stroke which occurs when a blood clot travelled to the brain in people who within the last 72 hours had: - a stroke due to a blood clot that formed outside the heart (acute non-cardioembolic ischemic stroke), or - temporary stroke-like symptoms with a high risk of turning into a stroke (high-risk transient ischemic attack), and who are planned to receive standard of care therapy. Ischemic strokes or transient ischemic attacks result from a blocked or reduced blood flow to a part of the brain. They are caused by blood clots that travel to the brain and block the vessels that supply it. If these blood clots form elsewhere than in the heart, the stroke is called non-cardioembolic. People who already had a non-cardioembolic stroke are more likely to have another stroke. This is why they are treated preventively with an antiplatelet therapy, the current standard of care. Antiplatelet medicines prevent platelets, components of blood clotting, from clumping together. Anticoagulants are another type of medicine that prevents blood clots from forming by interfering with a process known as coagulation (or blood clotting). The study treatment asundexian is a new type of anticoagulant currently under development to provide further treatment options. The way it works, it aims to further improve the standard of care with regard to the risk of bleeding. The main purpose of this study is to learn whether asundexian works better than placebo at reducing ischemic strokes in participants who recently had a non-cardioembolic ischemic stroke or temporary stroke-like symptoms when given in addition to standard antiplatelet therapy. A placebo is a treatment that looks like a medicine but does not have any medicine in it. Another aim is to compare the occurrence of major bleeding events during the study between the asundexian and the placebo group. Major bleedings have a serious or even life-threatening impact on a person's health. Dependent on the treatment group, the participants will either take asundexian or placebo as tablets once a day for at least 3 months up to 31 months. Approximately every 3 months during the treatment period, either a phone call or a visit to the study site is scheduled on an alternating basis. In addition, one visit before and up to two visits after the treatment period are planned. During the study, the study team will: - Check vital signs such as blood pressure and heart rate - Examine the participants' heart health using an electrocardiogram (ECG) - Take blood samples - Ask the participants questions about how they are feeling and what adverse events they are having. An adverse event is any medical problem that a participant has during a study. Doctors keep track of all adverse events that happen in studies, even if they do not think the adverse events might be related to the study treatments. In addition, the participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire on quality of life at certain time points during the study.
The goal of this clinical trial is to learn about the effects of phase-targeted auditory stimulation in depressed patients and healthy controls. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Is auditory down-phase stimulation efficient in improving depression symptoms as compared to sham stimulation? - Can mood and other outcomes be prospectively estimated by multi-parametric passive data? Participants will perform auditory stimulation using a wearable device at home and provide data on their phone usage and activity. Researchers will compare depressed patients and healthy participants to see if auditory down-phase stimulation effects them differently.
The CBI registry is a prospective, interdisciplinary, multimodal observational registry of patients with covert brain infarction. Methods: A standardized workup in analogy to manifest ischemic stroke including cerebral MRI, long-term rhythm monitoring (3 x 7 days ECG), echocardiography, laboratory work-up and risk factor assessment as well as noninvasive angiography of the cervical and intracranial arteries will be performed.
