There are about 8954 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Denmark. 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 aims to describe the biochemical coagulation profile and investigate the effect of Low molecular weight heparin and Apixaban on this profile in patients with nephrotic syndrome.
DISRUPT is a Danish nested case-control study that is currently being conducted to explore the impact of prenatal exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals on testicular cancer risk (including histological sub-groups) with emphasis on the analysis of exposure mixtures. Pregnant mothers provided serum and amniotic fluid at recruitment up to 50 years ago. By registry linkage within highly reliable national population and disease registries cancer cases and matched controls will be identified. Levels of EDCs including DDT, DDE and other organochlorine pesticides, PCBs, PBDEs, PFAS, phthalates and triclosan will be quantified in cases whose sons develop testicular cancer during 40 year follow up and compared to controls.
The aim is to determine the sensitivity and specificity of a screening tool to identify patients who undergo ACL reconstruction (non-copers) after 3 months of standard rehabilitation following an anterior Cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common bacterial infections worldwide. It affects 150 million people annually. Treatment of patients with UTI entails a high consumption of antibiotics and large social and health costs. With this protocol, we want to elucidate alternative treatment methods for especially recurrent urinary tract infection. Bacteria have internal competitiveness (bacterial interference) and it is known that the non-pathogenic E.coli can outcompete the pathogenic E.coli in laboratory studies. We intend to strengthen the clinical evidence that it can be used as patient treatment through a clinical, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial at Odense University Hospital.
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™.
Anatomical total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is a well-established treatment for pronounced glenohumeral osteoarthritis. However, the effectiveness of TSA has not been compared to non-surgical treatment in a randomised controlled trial. Shoulder exercises may be an effective treatment for reducing pain and improving function in glenohumeral osteoarthritis. The primary aim of this trial is to examine if TSA followed by standard postsurgical rehabilitation is superior to a 12-week exercise programme in patients with primary glenohumeral OA eligible for unilateral TSA. We hypothesise that surgical intervention followed by standard rehabilitation, results in clinically relevant (18-point, on a scale from 0-100) improvement compared to the exercise intervention.
Asparaginase is a cornerstone in the treatment of ALL. In most contemporary protocols like in NOPHO ALL2008 prolonged asparaginase treatment has been implemented. Publish data from NOPHO ALL2008 show sufficient treatment of the majority of patients (analysing trough levels of asparaginase after 2 weeks) but 13% of the patients experience an allergic reaction to this foreign protein (85% of them after the 2nd or 3rd dose) and they have no enzyme activity even before the reaction, meaning that they don't benefit from the treatment at all. In addition 4-5% of the patients have no enzyme activity through the whole treatment without hypersensitivity symptoms. So in reality approximately 20% of the patients don't receive any asparaginase treatment. Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM) of asparaginase has been established in Aarhus, Denmark, under the leadership of Birgitte Klug Albertsen (BKA). From February 2017 the centers have been invited to send samples (extended sampling) in order to gain more knowledge about the pharmacokinetics, to identify patients without activity and to establish the logistics for TDM of asparaginase, which will be mandatory in the next protocol ALLTogether, presumably opening in 2018. From February 2016 an extended sampling for enzyme activity measurements was started and will continue until NOPHO ALL2008 closes. These samples will make it possible to do more in depth pharmacokinetic studies as well as identify the optimal sampling time points for identifying no-activity patients in the future. A database is being developed for TDM in ALLTogether, but it will also include all the asparaginase measurements in ALL2008.
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common malignant disease in childhood. Survival rates exceed 90% in children and 75% in adults (aged 18-45 years). During the induction period Asparaginase is an indispensable part of the multiagent treatment, but is often associated with hypersensitivity, either with clinical allergy or silent inactivation. In both cases, Asparaginase is inactivated. It is well known that truncation of Asparaginase treatment due to inactivation reduces survival. To approach understanding Asparaginase dynamics and hypersensitivity in ALL patients it is important to examine the pharmacokinetics of Asparaginase. The aim of this study is to identify serological parameters for prediction of hypersensitivity reaction after the first doses of PEG-Asparaginase given intravenously on the ALLTogether protocol.
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) serves a growing spectrum of patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis (AS). Approximately 80% of surgical aortic valve replacements is performed using a bioprosthesis1. Durability of surgical bioprostheses varies based on the patient's age at the moment of implantation, type and size etc2. TAVI has become the preferred treatment for degenerated aortic bioprostheses in elderly patients3. The median time since index surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) and for bioprosthetic valve degeneration is typically 8 - 10 years4-6. TAVI in this setting has proven to have equally favorable results as in native aortic valves7. Balloon expandable8 and self-expanding9 transcatheter heart valves (THV) can be used in a degenerated bioprosthesis and each have specific assets and limitations. TAVI in a failed bioprosthesis can cause coronary obstruction, THV migration, paravalvular leakage and prosthesis patient mismatch. The SAPIEN-3 / Ultra and EVOLUT R/Pro are the 2 most commonly used THV platforms in contemporary clinical practice including treatment of failing surgical aortic bioprostheses. Objective: To compare TAVI with EVOLUT R/Pro vs. SAPIEN-3 / Ultra in terms of device success. Study design: International multi-center randomized study with 1:1 randomization to TAVI with SAPIEN-3 / Ultra or Evolut R/Pro. Study population: 440 patients with a failing surgical aortic bioprosthesis (aortic stenosis with or without aortic regurgitation) and selected for transfemoral TAVI by heart-team consensus. Investigational intervention: Transfemoral TAVI with SAPIEN-3 / Ultra or Evolut R/PRO Main study parameters/endpoints: 1. Primary endpoint is device success at 30 days Defined by - Absence of procedural mortality AND - Correct positioning of a single prosthetic heart valve into the proper anatomical location AND - Intended performance of the prosthetic heart valve (no severe prosthesis- patient mismatch and mean aortic valve gradient < 20 mmHg or peak velocity < 3 m/s, AND no moderate or severe prosthetic valve regurgitation). Severe prosthesis patient mismatch is defined by effective orifice area (EOAi) ≤0.65 cm2/m2 2. Safety endpoint at 1 year defined by the composite of all-cause death, disabling stroke, rehospitalization for heart failure or valve related problems.
