There are about 4 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Faroe Islands. 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.
Introduction: Regular exercise training improves prognosis in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). This study investigates whether the beneficial effects of exercise can be partly explained by favourable changes in haemostasis and inflammation. Methods: 150 CAD patients are randomised to a supervised long-term exercise program (3 months) or usual care. Blood samples are obtained at baseline, 1.5 months, and 3 months after randomisation. Results: The investigators will evaluate platelet turnover and aggregation, coagulation, fibrinolysis, and inflammatory markers before and after short- and long-term exercise, and the two randomised groups will be compared. Perspectives: The present study will increase our knowledge of the beneficial mechanisms underlying the effect of exercise in CAD patients, potentially paving the way for improved exercise recommendations.
The investigators established the Faroese Alzheimer's Cohort with the aim to unravel genetic and environmental factors that influence the risk and/or susceptibility of Alzheimers disease (AD). It is believed the Faroese population represents a unique opportunity due to its characteristics as a geographic, environmental and genetic isolate with a homogeneous genetic background and founder effects. It has an 'engaged' population with superbly detailed genealogy going 400 years back, unfettered patient access to health care, traditionally high participation rates in research and low probability of losing subjects to follow-up, and presents a unique opportunity to more readily identify genetic and environmental factors involved in AD. The specific aims of this project are: 1. Enrolment of patients with AD, incl.1st degree family members of selected familial patients and age and gender matched control subjects. 2. Detailed genealogical investigation of patients with Alzheimer's disease 3. Identify genes influencing risk and/or susceptibility of AD in the Faroese population
Randomized intervention by nutritional supplements and training in postoperative patients after discharge
Open-label, dose escalation, monotherapy, basket trial with biomarker specific MTD expansion cohort/Phase II part. The trial will consist of 2 parts: 1. Dose finding part to determine the MTD 2. Biomarker specific MTD expansion cohort/Phase II part to assess clinical anti-tumour activity in included tumour types
