There are about 17706 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Italy. 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 objective of the study will be to evaluate the efficacy of intravitreal injections of Umbilical Cord Blood Platelet-rich Plasma (CB-PRP) in order to reduce or stabilize the atrophic progression in dry Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Despite the availability of highly effective endoscopy-based and computed tomography (CT)-based biopsy procedures, up to 50% of patients with advanced lung cancer potentially eligible for targeted therapies or immunotherapy do not have access to a diagnosis or to a thorough molecular profiling for different reasons. Enlarged and/or positron emission tomography (PET) positive cervical/supraclavicular lymph nodes (CSLs) are ideal targets for a minimally invasive diagnosis of lung cancer through a percutaneous ultrasound-guided biopsy (US-NAB). However, the prevalence of metastatic involvement of CSLs in patients with advanced lung cancer was never specifically assessed. Furthermore, the possible association of malignant CSLs involvement with molecular status was never investigated, unlike what was done for several other metastatic sites.
The goal of this clinical trial is to evaluate the efficacy of a musical interventionand non-invasive brain stimulation in neurological patients. The main questions it aims to answer are: - to evaluate the residual neuroplastic processes in DOC state related to music exposure - to determine the putative modulation of the aforementioned processes and the clinical outcome of DOC patients by non-pharmacological strategies, i.e., electric (tDCS) and music stimulation - to evaluate the impact of this intervention on caregiver's burden and psychological distress. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of three different music-listening intervention groups. Primary outcomes will be clinical, that is based on the neurologist's observations of clinical improvement, and neurophysiological, collected pre-intervention, post-intervention and post-placebo.
Evaluating the outcomes of patients undergoing open anterior inguinal hernioplasty comparing two different techniques: Lichtenstein/plug and mesh and ProFlor. The outcomes of these two groups of patients, respectively the Lichtenstein inguinal hernia repair with static flat mesh and the defect obliteration with 3D dynamic scaffold Proflor, are compared in respect to defined variables along stages: intraoperative, early and long term postoperative.
The hypothesis under the study is that there could be a link between a dysfunction in peripheral microcirculation, sublingual microcirculation or cardiovascular control and the development of post cardiac surgery major morbidities (stroke, acute kidney injury, prolonged intubation, mediastinitis, surgical reopening, death). The state of sublingual microcirculation, of peripheral microcirculation and cardiovascular control will be assessed in 100 patients undergoing cardiac surgery during general anesthesia before the intervention and at the end of the intervention at the arrival in post-surgery ICU by means of signal processing techniques. The extracted markers will be used to assess a statistical prediction model of major morbitities.
The aim of the study is to evaluate autonomic function and cerebrovascular control in 30 healthy subjects by means of noninvasive analysis of time series variability. To this extent, heart period, systolic and mean arterial blood pressure, cerebral blood velocity, peripheral resistances, respiration will be recorded from subjects during an orthostatic challenge. The interactions between autonomic cardiovascular function, cerebrovascular and peripheral control will be evaluated explioiting the most advanced signal processing techniques.
This study is a retrospective pharmacological study, of a historical cohort. Collection of Retrospective data from February 2020 to 30 September 2021 The index date is the date of COVID-19 positive PCR test. The data will be collected until last news (last clinical visit or death). There are no defined study visits. In the course of the study, the clinical data recorded are those corresponding to the standard medical procedure. The goal of this study is to assess the impact on continuing or stopping adalimumab treatment on the occurrence of a severe COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) in patients with Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Disease (IMID), during the first month after the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection. To our knowledge, no comparisons have been performed between IMID patients stopping or not their maintenance treatment. In the context of the COVID-19 epidemic, the goal is to minimize the risk of disease flare while simultaneously minimizing the risk of severe COVID-19. In this study, we hypothesized that patients treated by adalimumab for IMID might not be susceptible to severe COVID-19 disease course.
The purpose of this prospective observational study is to evaluate the incidence of Post-Operative Bile Leakage (POBL) using the ABSOLOK™ Clip System during liver parenchymal resection by evaluating the intraoperative and short-term postoperative results. In addition, it will attempt to determine the factors that determine the surgeon's peripheral glissonian pedicle closure method and economic outcomes.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the association of casein phosphopeptide plus amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACPF) mousse and photo-bio-modulation therapy (PMBT) (diode laser, RAFFAELLO 980 BIO - Dental Medical Technologies - DMT S.r.l.) in the treatment of dental hypersensitivity (DH) in children with Molar Incisor Hypomineralization (MIH) . Children aged 6-14 years with hypersensitive teeth were randomized into 3 groups. Group A received the application of CPP-ACPF mousse (GC MI Paste®) and sham light therapy; group B got the application of placebo mousse (Elmex Junior®) and PMBT; group C received both CPP-ACPF mousse and PMBT.
Nephrotic syndrome is considered a disease caused by an interplay of immunological stimuli with adaptive immunity(CD80/CD40) as trigger and Treg in the mid between co-stimulatory molecules and effectors. The positive effect of drugs blocking CD20 maturation in SDNS suggests a main role of these cells in regulating the system. Multidrug dependent, multidrug resistant nephrotic syndrome as well as post transplant FSGS recurrence patients can be considered difficult to treat patients and the association of two drugs, one targeting CD20 and a targeting plasmacells can be use in order to block the stimulatory cascade at more sites.
