There are about 21182 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Germany. 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 ExpoBiome project will analyze the impact of fasting on patients with Parkinsons's Disease (PD) or rheumatoid arthritis (RA) on a clinical level as well as the effect of fasting on their immune system and gut microbiota. ExpoBiome will combine metagenomics and other "omics" [meta-transcriptomics, meta-proteomics and (meta-)metabolomics], bioinformatic analyses and biostatistics under a systems biology framework to gain new mechanistic insights into microbiome-immune system interactions in the context of chronic diseases with inflammatory signatures. Besides a one time crossectional study of healthy participants, patients with RA and PD a longitudinal fasting study with two arms (RA and PD) is planned.
The Activa IM-Nail™ is used in the fixation of forearm fractures with cast to achieve a level of reduction and stabilisation that is appropriate to the age of the child. The post-market clinical follow-up study will be performed to identify the residual risk related to re-fracture and to determine its impact to the risk/benefit ratio of Activa IM-Nail™.
Researchers are looking for a new way to treat women who have symptoms by hormonal changes, like those that happen in women during menopause. These symptoms can include hot flashes, night sweats, and changes in blood pressure. These symptoms are caused by hormonal changes occurring during menopausal transition when women may have also changes in their monthly cycles. The menopausal transition most often begins between ages 45 and 55 and leads to menopause, a point in time 12 months after a woman's last period. The study drug, elinzanetant, was designed to treat symptoms caused by hormonal changes. Before a new treatment can be approved for people to take, researchers perform clinical trials to better understand how this treatment works and to investigate safety. The purpose of this study is to assess the blood levels of elinzanetant when given as 2 capsules of dose A (what is intended for further research and future commercialization) and also to compare the blood levels when given as 3 capsules of dose B (what was used for research up to now). Furthermore, researchers want to find out if taking of elinzanetant on two time points leads to differences in blood levels of elinzanetant. This trial will be performed in healthy women aged 40 to 65 years.
This clinical investigation evaluates the feasibility of the Rodeo Micro Mapping Catheter in combination with cryoablation ssystem (sclerotherapy of muscle tissue of the heart by freezing) in patients with atrial fibrillation (permanent atrial fibrillation excepted). Further aims of this study are the evaluation of safety of the device and average procedure and fluoroscopy times.
The aim of this prospective multicentre study is to evaluate the influence of individual clotting factor level while being physically active
As the most common carcinoma in men, prostate cancer is a significant tumor entity in oncology. In addition to the surgical approach, definitive radiotherapy is an equivalent therapy alternative in the non-metastatic primary situation. However, radiotherapy usually stretches over a period of several weeks (7 to 8 weeks) during which the patient receives irradiation on a daily basis. For this reason and for radiobiological considerations the total treatment time is increasingly shortened. It has been shown in several randomized phase III studies that shorting radiotherapy to about 4 weeks by increasing the single dose (so-called hypofractionation) is possible. Meanwhile there is also more data on extreme hypofractionation (max. 10 radiation sessions) available, however often times, extensive preparations are necessary (such as the invasive introduction of markers into the prostate). The current, prospective, non-randomized, multicentric, Phase II SMILE study is now testing whether the MRI-guided radiotherapy with a greatly shortened radiotherapy of the prostate over 5 radiation sessions is possible and safe.
Investigator-initiated, prospective, non-randomized, open label, non-interventional multicenter registry to evaluate current treatment of three major cardiovascular disease entities in clinical practice using a standardized variable-set of relevant covariates and outcome measures.
The RIP-HIGH trial is a two-arm randomized controlled trial aiming to compare the impact of combined remote ischemic conditioning (RIP) and local ischemic postconditioning (PostC) vs. standard of care on clinical outcome in high-risk ST-elevation myocardial infarction patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention.
The study's primary aim is to develop and validate a multivariable diagnostic model for the prediction of difficult videolaryngoscopy (the 'PeDiAC classification') in children undergoing general anesthesia with tracheal intubation. The secondary aim is to compare the diagnostic performance of the PeDiAC-classification with the Cormack-Lehane classification.
The purpose of the study is to determine the frequency with which individual guideline recommendations on preoperative evaluation of patients scheduled for non-cardiac surgery are implemented as well as identifying the guidelines that are most frequently violated.
