There are about 143 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Cyprus. 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.
The study was planned to determine the effect of arnica montana, green tea mouthwash and ice particles impregnation on postoperative sore throat and hoarseness.
Despite successful maneuver applications in the treatment of BPPV, complaints of balance problems and dizziness persist. Many studies supports the notion that virtual reality (VR) allowing visual-vestibular interaction with a large number of visual stimuli, contribute to successful outcomes in BPPV. VR applications using eye tracking algorithms and 'glasses' can be effective however. The research to date covers the VR technologies on the treatment of BPPV, however, there is no research comparing the effects of 2D and 3D VR gaming technologies with a control group. Therefore, this study aims to examine the effects of different virtual reality applications and vestibular rehabilitation on gait, reaction time, balance functions, activities of daily living, and quality of life in individuals with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) having residual dizziness and balance problems.
The aim of this study is to determine the effect of training given with the Roy adaptation model on the self-care agency and coping strategies of patients with plaster casts.
Hypo-Combi Trial: A Prospective Phase I/II Study of Combined Hypofractionated External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT) plus Interstitial High-Dose-Rate Brachytherapy (HDR-BT) for Intermediate/High Risk Prostate Cancer
The aim of our study is to compare the effects of progressive exercise therapy, administered as a home program under the supervision of a physiotherapist, on adduction angle, pain, functional status, quality of life, and kinesiophobia in individuals aged 18-64 years with a hallux valgus angle of 15-40 degrees (mild-moderate).
This study aimed to examine the effects of a public health nursing intervention plus m-Health applications for hypertension management on enhancing the Self-care, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and quality of life in older adults during the lockdown period in Jordan. Study Hypothesis: There are no differences between the three groups in: H01 HTN self-care (SC-HI) score. H02 Health-related quality of life (SF-36) score. H03 The management of systolic and diastolic BP levels.
The aim of this study was investigate the comparison of postoperative effects of local antibiotics mixed with platelet-rich fibrin and postoperative systemic antibiotic applications prescribed for mandibular impacted third molar tooth extraction. The study included a total of 75 patients with impacted mandibular third molar. Patients were evaluated in 5 randomly separated groups. For the first and third group, Platelets Rich Fibrin+ systemic Antibiotics were applied into the tooth socket and for the second and fourth group, Platelets Rich Fibrin + local antibiotics were applied, respectively. There was a control group which only Platelets Rich Fibrin was applied into the socket. The outcome variables were pain, swelling, the number of analgesics taken, and trismus. These variables were also assessed based on first, second, third, and seventh days following the operation.
Surgical Site Infections (SSI) develop as a complication of surgical care 30-90 days after surgery without implants and within 1 year after implanted operations. Despite advances in asepsis practices, sterilization methods, surgical technique and antibiotic prophylaxis, SSI is the most important cause of hospital stay, morbidity and even mortality. SSI, which constitutes approximately 20% of healthcare associated infections (HAI) all over the world, is also the HAI with the highest cost. Although it has been reported that 60% of the SSI can be prevented by using evidence-based guidelines, 2-5% of the operated patients develop SSI, the hospital stay of patients with SSI is 7-11 days longer, the risk of death increases 2-11 times, It was reported that the cause of death was direct SSI. In the United States of America (USA), SSI constitutes 31% of HAI, it is seen in 2-5% of inpatients, approximately 160,000-300,000 SSIs occur each year, the most common and costly HAI.Abdominal surgery; It includes the treatment of diseases of organs such as stomach, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen, liver, small intestine and large intestine. It has been reported that the incidence of SSIs after abdominal surgery is 15-25% higher than other types of surgery. In a study conducted by Alcan et al. (2020), 69.8% of nurses stated that they used Povidone Iodine as skin antisepsis. Wistrand et al. (2015) compared preoperative 36 ° C and room temperature 20 ° C Chlorhexidine Gluconate solutions, but reported that there was no difference in bacterial colonization and SSI rates. In their study in Turkey, Gezer et al. (2020) reported that the prevalence of SSI was significantly lower in the Povidone Iodine group heated to 37 ° C before surgery compared to the Povidone Iodine group applied at 25 ° C room temperature.
A trial study was proposed as part of the project "Biocomposite Packaging for Active Preservation of Food" (acronym BIOFOODPACK) that has been funded by the M-ERA.Net Call 2016. A crossover trial with a behavioral intervention study will be conducted. The behavioural intervention treatment consists of: i) avoiding the consumption of packaged (cans, plastic, paper) ready to consume foods, and foods from take away/delivery/fast food, and ii) using the proposed bio-based packaging material to package foods ready for consumption; this bio-based packaging material (Silvex Ltd, Portugal) does not contain plasticizers, it is biodegradable and made out of plant-based materials (corn, starch, etc.). The objectives of this study are: 1. To describe the body burden of plasticizers for women aged 18-40 years systematically adopting the intervention treatment package during the 5-day period. 2. To assess the diurnal variability of the plasticizers, based on regular daily activities of the young adult women.
Aim: To evaluate the effectiveness of thymus honey on radiation induced-oral mucositis and xerostomia. Background: Oral mucositis and xerostomia are two of the most severe side effects that head and neck cancer patients confront during and after the completion of radiotherapy. Although several medications are used for their treatment, these fail to provide a fully effective and comprehensive management. Honey and thyme have been studied for the management of various treatment-related side effects. Design: Α double blinded randomised controlled trial will be used for this study. Methods: 200 head and neck cancer patients who receive radiotherapy will be included in this study. Patients will be randomised and divided into two equal groups of 100 participants; the intervention group (oral spray with thyme and honey + standard care) and the control group ( placebo spray + standard care). Assessments with xerostomia and oral mucositis scales additionally to 4 self-administered questionnaires will occur in both groups at baseline and then weekly and 6 months following completion of treatment. The duration of the study will be 3 years from the day of approval of this research protocol.
