Start date: July 15, 2022
Study type: Observational

The present study is a 5-year follow-up of the Allergy Reduction Trial (A.R.T.) birth cohort study of 551 infants at high-risk for allergy. The A.R.T. 5-year follow-up study, aims to investigate the prolonged effect of each feeding regimen [formula-fed (exclusively or partially) with the partially hydrolyzed formula (pHF) or the standard formula (SF), or exclusively breastfed] within the first 6 months of life on the development of any allergic manifestations up to the age of 5 years. Allergic manifestations within this time period will include the presence of any of the following: atopic dermatitis, food allergies, respiratory allergies, urticaria, drug allergy and insect venom allergy. In addition, differences on growth (weight, height, BMI) will be examined.

NCT ID: NCT05399823 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Physical Performance

The Effect of Taping in Addition to Self-stretching Exercise in the Elderly With Hyperkyphosis

Start date: January 14, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Aim: The aim of the study is to investigate the effectiveness of kinesio taping and sham taping in addition to self-stretching exercise on hyperkyphosis angle, neck pain and quality of life in elderly individuals with hyperkyphosis. Method: 60 elderly individuals with hyperkyphosis aged 60-85 years will be included in the study. Subjects will be divided inti three groups. Kinesio taping, sham taping and self-stretching exercise. The kinesio taping group will be given kinesio taping in addition to self stretching exercises. The second sham taping group will be given sham kinesio taping in addition to self stretching exercises. The third self-stretching group will be given a program consisting of stretching exercises for pectoral, erector spinae, latismus dorsi, multifidus, rhomboid and trapezius muscles. Individuals will be asked to do these exercises on their own for 15-20 minutes at home or in the office every day for four weeks. Before and after the study, the subjects will be test for the kyphosis angle will be evaluated with a flexible ruler and Scoliosis Research Society Outcome questionnaire (SRS22) will be used to evaluate spinal curvatures.The Neck Disability Questionnaire will be used to evaluate neck pain. The occiput-neck distance and mini mental test will be used in this srudy.

NCT ID: NCT05396976 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Premenstrual Syndrome

The Effect of Yoga and Progressive Muscle Relaxation Exercise Practices on Premenstrual Syndrome

Start date: June 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Yoga and progressive relaxation exercises are seen as a valuable approach for the management of PMS, which is very common in young women and has significant negative effects on academic participation, social activities and quality of life. Despite the conclusion that yoga and progressive relaxation exercises are an effective method in the treatment of PMS in a significant part of the studies in the literature, it is mentioned that the data are insufficient in terms of method and methodology and the necessity of studies that can support the results. In this study, it was aimed to determine the effects of yoga and progressive muscle relaxation exercises on menstrual symptoms, depression, anxiety and stress in university students with premenstrual syndrome.

NCT ID: NCT05374161 Recruiting - Depression Clinical Trials

An Intervention for Female Breast CANcer: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (I-CAN-ACT) for Depression and Physical Pain

Start date: January 20, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

As a result of the cancer diagnosis and medical therapies, women with breast cancer often encounter debilitating cooccurring psychological and physical symptoms. While pain constitutes one of the most common adverse physical side effects of medical treatment reported by breast cancer patients, the most prevalent psychological symptom they seek psychological help for is depressive symptoms. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in psychosocial oncology care may be particularly beneficial in targeting depression and cancer-related pain. The aim of the I-CAN-ACT project is to examine in a RCT the efficacy of a brief ACT-based intervention for both depression and physical pain (6 online sessions) compared to a waitlist control on various outcomes in women with breast cancer. Outcomes will include quality of life, physical pain intensity and interference, depression, and anxiety in women with breast cancer. These will be assessed at post-treatment and at the 1-month, 3-month, 6-month and 1 year follow-ups (for Marianna Zacharia's PhD thesis, results will be presented until the 3-month follow-up). Also, the Acceptability and Feasibility of the intervention will be assessed. That is, participants' treatment acceptability and adherence to the brief ACT intervention in terms of retention, treatment engagement and satisfaction with each session and with the overall treatment will be assessed. Participants' reasons for dropout will be recorded.

NCT ID: NCT05337631 Recruiting - Oropharynx Cancer Clinical Trials

Special Care Patterns for Elderly HNSCC Patients Undergoing Radiotherapy

Start date: June 1, 2021
Study type: Observational

The number of elderly head-and-neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients is increasing; however, the evidence regarding the ideal treatment for this often vulnerable and frail patient cohort is limited. Although the benefit of concomitant chemotherapy has been reported to decrease in elderly HNSCC patients based on the MACH-NC meta-analysis, it remains unknown whether state-of-the art radiotherapy techniques such as intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), modern supportive treatments and alternative chemotherapy fractionation (e.g., cisplatin weekly) may have altered this observation. The objective of this retrospective multinational multicenter study is to determine the oncological outcomes of elderly patients (≥65 years) with locally advanced HNSCCs undergoing definitive (chemo-)radiation and to investigate the influence of concomitant chemotherapy on overall survival and progression-free survival after adjusting for potential confounder variables such as age, performance status and comorbidity burden.

NCT ID: NCT05328830 Completed - Performance Clinical Trials

Soft Tissue Mobilization Effects on Doms

Start date: January 4, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Aim: The aim of the study was to examine and compare the time-dependent effects of IASTM and FR applications on delayed muscle pain and physical performance. Method: 50 physically active healthy male individuals between the ages of 20-35 will be included in the study. Participants will be divided into 3 separate groups as instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization(IASTM), foam roller (FR) and control group. DOMS creation protocol will be implemented after preliminary evaluation. IASTM and FR groups will be treated after the formation of doms. The control group will not be applied. participants are evaluated 1 day before the doms were created and at 24, 48 and 72 hours after doms created. Subjetcs were tested for physical activity level with IPAQ-SF, flexibility with sit and reach test, pain with Visual analog scale, edema with thigh circumference measurement, explosive power with horizontal and vertical jump test, dynamic balance with y balance test and isokinetic muscle strength of the quadriceps and hamstring muscles with isokinetic dynamometer.

NCT ID: NCT05300061 Completed - Specific Phobia Clinical Trials

Values Interventions for Increasing Engagement With What is Feared in Individuals With Specific Phobias

Start date: September 1, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Exposure is considered the therapy of choice for specific phobias (SPs). Nevertheless, therapy engagement is extremely limited. SPs are maintained through avoidance of feared stimuli and as such willingness to approach what is feared constitutes a key factor that could explain limited treatment engagement. Values interventions, a key element of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), might be one way to increase engagement, yet to this date limited research exists in this area. For the purposes of the current study, two brief values interventions were developed: (a) a personal and (b) a prosocial one. These will be compared to (c) a no-instructions control in increasing willingness to approach and approach behaviour towards phobic stimuli. Ninety participants with flying phobia will be randomly allocated to one of the three groups. To measure willingness to engage with feared stimuli and approach behaviour two behavioural approach tasks using novel technologies (virtual reality), which aimed to expose participants to situations analogous to real life, were developed. Willingness and behavioural approach towards airplanes at a one month follow up will also be assessed. Therefore, it is hypothesised that: 1. Participants in either of the two values intervention groups will have greater willingness to engage and approach behaviour towards feared stimuli compared to those in control, during the study tasks. 2. Participants in either of the two values intervention groups will have greater willingness to engage and approach behaviour towards feared stimuli compared to those in control at follow up. Additionally, as prosocial values provide an evolutionary advantage, the second study aim was to identify if they lead to greater engagement with phobic stimuli compared to personal ones. Therefore, it was also hypothesised that: 3. Participants in the prosocial values group will have greater willingness to engage and approach behaviour towards feared stimuli compared to those in personal values group, both during the study tasks and at follow up. 4. Participants in the prosocial values group will have greater willingness to engage and approach behaviour towards feared stimuli compared to those in personal values group at follow up.

NCT ID: NCT05287815 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Nurse-Patient Relations

Determination of Health Care Needs of Elderly Individuals According to the Omaha Classification System and Investigation of the Effects of Implemented Nursing Interventions on Healthy Lifestyle Behaviors and Quality of Life

health elderly
Start date: February 1, 2022
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

As in the whole world, there is an increase in the elderly population in the TRNC. However, no systematic care is provided for the registration and follow-up of elderly individuals. In this study, it is aimed to determine the health care needs of the elderly with a systematic method with the Omaha Classification System (OSS), which is used in the home care system in the world and in Turkey, and to examine the effectiveness of the nursing interventions applied according to the health care needs of the elderly people. With this method, it is thought that the continuity of monitoring and monitoring the health care needs of elderly individuals with a systematic approach will be ensured.
