There are about 16053 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Spain. 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 purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of Sodium Zirconium Cyclosilicate (SZC), as adjunct to ACEi/ARB therapy (lisinopril or valsartan), on slowing CKD progression (assessed as the reduction in participant's glomerular filtration rate [eGFR] decline over time) in participants with hyperkalaemia or at high risk of hyperkalaemia.
A pilot study to establish the efficacy and safety of supplementation with postbiotics in patients with macular degeneration.
This is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter clinical trial in which 18 patients affected with chronic traumatic incomplete cervical spinal cord injury will be randomized to either the active treatment (2 doses of intrathecal WJ-MSC 3 months apart) or to placebo (2 intrathecal infusions, 3 months apart). Thereafter, patients will be followed-up for 12 months for safety and efficacy assessment.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has been extensively studied in the context of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) due to its higher prevalence and its association with obesity and syndrome metabolic, a well-established risk factor for NAFLD. Although several studies have reported the accumulation of liver fat in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D), the prevalence, etiology, and the consequences of NAFLD in patients with T1D are poorly characterized, requiring more studies in this field. In addition, liver involvement at the metabolic level in patients with T1D raises the differential diagnosis between NAFLD and glycogen hepatopathy (GH), a rare complication associated with the poorly metabolic control of diabetes and probably underdiagnosed, since the ultrasound pattern is the same than the NAFLD. The investigators have designed a cross-sectional observational study with the objective of describing the prevalence of metabolic liver diseases (NAFLD and GH) in the population of patients with T1D in the healthcare area of Hospital del Mar and Hospital de Vilafranca, as well as studying the relationship of these pathologies with the degree of metabolic control, the presence of metabolic syndrome and the presence of micro and macrovascular complications.
Diagnosis and treatment of differentiated thyroid carcinomas cause anxiety and depression. Additionally, these patients suffer hormonal alterations, associated with psychological symptoms (changes in mood, emotional instability, memory loss, etc.). This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a psycho-oncological intervention based on Counselling to reduce anxiety and depression related with the treatment in patients with differentiated thyroid carcinomas.
The Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune disease characterised by the appearance of lesions, characterised by heterogeneity in their anatomopathological, clinical and radiological presentation. Its aetiology is complex and multifactorial, with genetic and environmental interactions with a predominance in women (3:1) and is the second leading cause of disability in young adults (25-30 years). It has a socio-economic impact, affecting interpersonal relationships and causing a significant reduction in quality of life. MAIN OBJECTIVE To assess the effect on spasticity of the Percutaneous Ultrasound-guided Neuromodulation (PMN) technique in patients diagnosed with MS with upper limb spasticity. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES - To assess changes in the strength parameter of the wrist flexor musculature wrist before and after the application of a PMN programme. - To assess changes in the functionality scales (modified Asworth, established for spasticity - To assess changes in the range of motion (ROM) of the joints under study. - Assess changes in the quality of life scale (MSQOL54). - To assess the adverse effects of the technique. All patients will receive a Percutaneous Echoguided Neuromodulation (PNM) in the median nerve at the elbow, medial to the brachial artery, running between the humeral and ulnar heads of the pronator teres muscle. Once the nerve is located, a needle shall be inserted in the vicinity of the nerve and is stimulated using an electrical current with a frequency of 10 Hz, with a pulse width of 250 µs and a tolerable intensity causing a visible muscle cont raction for 1.5 minutes. After assessing the correct application of ethics in the study, it was decided to use the individual's own baseline data as a control group, as simulating the technique is complex.
This is an observational, prospective follow-up post-marketing study of CE marked medical devices aimed at treating astigmatism in patients with cataracts. The main objective is to evaluate the response of the intrastromal arcuate incisions procedure for the correction of low corneal astigmatism with the Catalys femtosecond laser using the Cassini Ambient equipment with iris registration in cataract surgery.
This study is investigating how Mim8 works compared to other medicines in people with haemophilia A, who either have inhibitors or do not have inhibitors. Mim8 is a new medicine that will be used for prevention of bleeding episodes. Mim8 works by replacing the function of the missing clotting factor VIII (FVIII). When and how often participants will receive Mim8 is dependent on their previous treatment - but is otherwise decided by chance. The study will last for 72-124 weeks (17-29 months) depending on how long participants will be followed before it is decided when they start receiving Mim8 - the period before this is decided is called the 'run-in'. Participants will have 13-17 clinic visits. Mim8 will be injected into a skinfold on the stomach with a thin needle either once a week or once a month.
Extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) offers an alternative to standard immunosuppression and shows an immunomodulatory rather than an immunosuppressive effect, which is associated with less toxicities and side effects. Additionally ECP has been shown to allow tapering of steroids and immunosuppressant agents which should be a goal of GvHD therapy. ECP has been used for the management of GvHD since first described in 1994 and as its use has continued over the decades. The treatment was incorporated into a number of guidelines as a second line therapy in steroid refractory or steroid dependent GvHD patients. As well as being used in addition and after steroids, it is also used in combination with CNI Inhibitors, MMF and other immunosuppressant agents. However, despite the current widespread use of ECP in the treatment of patients with GvHD, clinical data from randomized studies is limited and small prospective and retrospective trials are the main evidence base .This is also the case for other commonly used immunosuppressant agents, which have been used in GvHD since ECP was introduced. The systematic review concluded that ECP is an effective therapy for oral, skin, and liver SR-cGVHD, with modest activity in lung and gastrointestinal SR-cGVHD. In the USA Ibrutinib is the only FDA approved agent for second line cGvHD therapy once steroid therapy has failed and Ruxolitinib had been approved in the USA for the treatment of steroid refractory GvHD. While studies have shown the effectiveness and safety of ECP in GvHD treatment, there is limited data to show how it is being used in combination with the recently approved agents. Using existing registry data targeting centres where the newer agents are being used and enhancing the capture of treatment data we believe we can undertake a larger scale study, which will include the new treatment protocols. The aim of the current study is to improve the evidence basis on the potential benefit of ECP use as treatment of GVHD.
Celiac disease (CD) is an immunological disorder that mainly affects the small intestine, generating an inflammatory process in response to the presence of gluten (a protein). Autoimmune diseases are part of a group of diseases that are difficult to diagnose without a specific protocol or consensus to detect them due to the number of symptoms and diseases with which it has a relationship. The incidence of CD in Spain -according to data from the rest of the European Economic Community, since there is no study on incidence in Spain- is assumed to be approximately 1 per 100 live births. It is more frequent in women, with a 2:1 ratio. The only treatment consists of a STRICT GLUTEN-FREE DIET FOR LIFE. This results in the disappearance of symptoms, normalization of serology and recovery of intestinal villi. Failure to follow the diet can lead to important complications which, especially in adulthood, can manifest themselves in the form of osteopenia, osteoporosis and a high risk of neoplasms in the digestive tract, mainly. The main objective is to achieve a physical and physiological improvement in menopausal or post-menopausal celiac women. The specific objectives will be to know the influence of a dietary-nutritional program combined with physical exercise in menopausal or post-menopausal celiac women on: - Physical condition (strength, endurance, functional autonomy...). - Body composition. - Psychological aspects. - Physiological parameters (heart rate, maximum oxygen consumption, blood analysis...).
