There are about 1823 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Ireland. 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.
This is a phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial designed to compare the efficacy and safety of the humanized monoclonal anti CD19 antibody tafasitamab plus lenalidomide in addition to R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone) versus R-CHOP in previously untreated, high-intermediate and high-risk patients with newly-diagnosed DLBCL
In Phase I the sponsor will systematically test conditions for lavage filtration that increase tumor cell fraction without reducing tumor mutation yield. The Sponsor will also transition all lavages to luteal phase timing, when endometrial shedding is least. In Phase II the Sponsor will examine our data in context of clinical characteristics, particularly age, to develop a multivariate model that determines optimal mutant allele frequency (MAF) diagnostic threshold by patient. Furthermore, the sponsor will explore a highly innovative idea, entailing empirically determining each individual's background mutation load, agnostic of the aging or mutagenic exposures responsible, and using this as a personalized calibrator to determine optimal MAF diagnostic threshold.
SETANTA study will investigate the incidence of cardiac abnormalities as assessed by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in unselected patients after acute SARS-CoV-2 infection and correlation with immunological response and biomarkers of coagulation.
Babies who have brain injury also frequently have involvement of their kidneys, lung and heart. Although clinical care in the neonatal period is well defined there are few guidelines and evidence for developmental, heart and kidney followup in childhood. The investigators aim to develop and implement guidelines for health care workers and families on Followup after Neonatal Brain Injury. Inflammation is an important factor in brain injury of newborns and also affects their heart lungs and other parts of their body. The investigators will use tests from the newborn period to predict outcome and help parents with planning health needs for their baby rather than waiting until any issues arise later on. By understanding inflammation the investigators can find methods to decrease the negative effects and improve outcomes in the future for babies and families.
The ongoing corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a viral acute respiratory tract infection caused by server acute respiratory syndrom coronavirus typ 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The signs and symptom of SARS-CoV-2 infection vary and most people with COVID-19 experience illness of mild or moderate severity and recover with symptomatic treatment outside of hospital. Studies have found that some people experience lingering/long-lasting symptoms and only a minority of patients were completely free from COVID-19 related symptoms after two months. About one third still had up to two residual symptoms and 55% had three or more. As far as we know no study on lingering symptoms has been published in patients after a mild or moderate infection managed in primary care settings. The aim of this study is to explore the course of disease over a one year period and describe lingering symptoms and their impact on well-being and daily activities in adult non-hospitalized patients with previous established COVID-19 infection.
The aim of the questionnaire and semi structured interview was to understand how the Covid 19 pandemic has impacted the cardiovascular health, physical activity levels, sedentary behavior, sleep, anxiety levels and eating habits of children with ASD in comparison to before the pandemic.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the drug levels, efficacy, safety, and tolerability of subcutaneous nivolumab versus intravenous nivolumab in participants with previously treated clear cell renal cell carcinoma that is advanced or has spread.
Evidence is emerging that many individuals who recover from Covid-19 are experiencing a range of residual problems. These include fatigue, pain, reduced exercise tolerance and breathing issues. This study includes participants who are experiencing problems with their lungs such as breathing difficulties, shortness of breath, and/or reduced exercise tolerance. The intervention is a twice weekly singing and breathing retraining intervention conducted over ten weeks. A range of self-report questionnaire measures will evaluate the efficacy of the intervention in addressing these problems. Focus groups and individual interviews will also be used to gather information on the impact and acceptability of the programme.
The trial is open to all patients with a diagnosis of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) who are PCR-positive for the PML-RARα transcript and less than 18 years of age.
During a general anaesthetic, patients cannot breathe on their own and have to be artificially ventilated. This is achieved by connecting the patient's windpipe (trachea) to a ventilator via the use of a plastic tube called an endotracheal tube (ETT). To place this ETT into the patient's trachea, an instrument called a laryngoscope is used to lift the tongue and view the entrance to the trachea. This process is called laryngoscopy. The act of placing this ETT into the trachea is called intubation. In anticipation of this procedure, the airway is assessed by the anaesthetist before the patient is put to sleep. This airway examination helps predict if the patient's airway will prove to be difficult to intubate. This assessment is usually carried out face to face with the patient. Since the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic, we have been trying to minimise patient footfall performing anaesthetic assessments before surgery through a video platform. The objective of this study is to compare these video airway evaluations to assessments carried out face to face. We anticipate that the virtual airway assessments will be similar if not the same as the in-person airway assessments.
