There are about 442 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Jordan. 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.
In epileptic and non Epileptic children, the full dentition of each patient was split into four quadrants, starting from the upper right quadrant (1) and moving clockwise until the lower right quadrant (4). Bundled into two groups: quadrant (1+3) vs. (2+4). After randomization, each of these pairs of quadrants had the same treatment modality; test quadrants received treatment with airflow to remove soft biofilm, and ultrasonic scaler for areas with calculus deposits, and control quadrants were treated with conventional rubber cup polishing to remove soft biofilm and ultrasonic scaler for calculus deposits.
The goal of this clinical trial is to compare the effect of melatonin, diazepam, and placebo on the level of anxiety in patients undergoing surgery. The main question it aims to answer is: • Is melatonin effective in reducing the anxiety of patients undergoing surgery? Participants will be asked to answer a questionnaire then they will receive either melatonin, diazepam, or placebo, and then after an hour, they will answer the same questionnaire again. Researchers will compare melatonin, diazepam, and placebo to see if melatonin is as effective in reducing the level of anxiety as diazepam in patients undergoing surgery.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic and intricate musculoskeletal disorder characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, and tenderness in specific anatomical regions. Although its prevalence varies among populations, understanding the prevalence in different geographical areas is crucial for healthcare planning. This cross-sectional study aims to determine the prevalence of fibromyalgia in adults residing in Al-Karak, Jordan. The city's unique demographic and environmental characteristics may influence the occurrence of fibromyalgia among its adult population. The study aims to address gaps in knowledge, provide localized insights, and shed light on fibromyalgia's burden on the community's health. Accurate prevalence data aids healthcare planning and resource allocation.

Background: Hemodialysis affects patients' lives and is associated with social, occupational, psychological, and societal problems. Mind-body interventions (MBIs), like mindfulness meditation, have been gaining popularity in the health sector. Pain, sleep quality, and self-esteem have all been positively impacted by MBIs in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Health care providers may be able to provide more thorough care if they are aware of these interventions. Purpose: To assess the impact of mindfulness meditation on pain, quality of sleep, and self-esteem, and self-management in patients with ESRD undergoing hemodialysis in Jordan. Methods: An experimental repeated measure, randomized, parallel control design was conducted on 60 patients with ESRD undergoing hemodialysis between March and June 2023 in the dialysis center at Alkarak governmental hospital, Jordan. Participants were randomly assigned to the experimental (N =30) and control groups (N =30) using a simple random assignment method. The experimental group practiced mindfulness meditation for 30 minutes three times per week for five weeks during their hemodialysis treatments. The control group's patients continued to receive hemodialysis treatment as usual, with three hemodialysis sessions for five weeks without any additional intervention. The study variables for both groups were measured at baseline (T0), two weeks after intervention (T1), and at the end of intervention (T2). Variables were measured by the Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS), the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES-M) questionnaire. Descriptive statistics like frequency, mean, and standard deviation were used to describe participants. The repeated measures ANOVA (within-subject) tests were used to examine the study hypotheses.
Background: Hemodialysis is considered as an effective therapy to remove harmful wastes from the body and to improve the quality of life in patients suffering from end-stage renal disease (ESRD). However, patients who receive hemodialysis perceive various stressors that are harmful to their physical and psychological well-being, particularly the immune system. Therefore, it is necessary to implement effective and practical therapeutic strategies to enhance the quality of life in this population. Mindfulness-based intervention is an effective mind-body connection program that is inadequately used in patients undergoing hemodialysis. Objective: The current study aimed to investigate the effect of mindfulness-based intervention on physical and psychological symptoms (e.g., stress, anxiety, and depression) and pro-inflammatory biomarker levels (e.g., TNF, interleukin-6, and C-reactive protein) in patients with ESRD undergoing hemodialysis. Method: Repeated measures, randomized, control experimental design was used. A convenience non-probability sampling technique to select the sample from the hemodialysis unit in the Princess Haya Bint AL_Hussine Hospital. The participants who were eligible and agreed to participate were randomly distributed into experimental (n = 31) and control (n = 30) groups. During their hemodialysis sessions, the experimental group' participants practiced 30-minute mindfulness-based intervention; three times a week for eight weeks). The Mindful Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS), Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scale - 21 (DASS-21), Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-15), and serum blood levels (for tumor necrosis factor, interleukin-6, and C-reactive protein) were used to measure the dependent variables for both groups at baseline, after five weeks of the intervention, and at its end (eight weeks).
Psilocin is the active metabolite of psilocybin a natural material found in several types of fungi. The bioavailability of psilocybin, the prodrug of psilocin, has been reported to be over 60%. However, pharmacokinetics and bioavailability of psilocin mucate has not been reported. This Phase I "First in Man" study of psilocin mucate is designed to determine its safety, pharmacokinetics, and bioavailability. The study is conducted under the supervision of physicians and psychiatrists who also will administer a mini-mental state evaluation and report observable anti-anxiolytic effect of the dosage. Safety and possible indications of efficacy will be tracked during the study period, a week following the dose administration and one month after.
Vitiligo is a auto immune that impact 2% of the global population, regardless from the phototype. Even though it affects patients in a physical way through loss of pigmentation, it is also impacting them on a mental/emotional way.11-12 Current treatments offer a symptomatic solution to patients, however the response rate can be low and results can be slow. Pediatric patients in vitiligo deserves special care as frequently (50%), the disease onset is before 20 years of age and, in 25% of the cases, it starts before the age of 10 years.13 Also, the current treatments for children are limited since it can involve pain and claustrophobia. The combination therapy of the study could offer a painless and easy treatment to follow. If the combination of those two therapies can fasten and improve the response rate, this could be a good option to treat this condition not only in children, but also for adults patients.
Endodontic periradicular microsurgery is a dental procedure to treat apical periodontitis in cases in which healing has not occurred after non-surgical treatment or if it is not feasible. Recent advances in techniques and materials have resulted in more predictable outcomes. Piezotome is a new and innovative device, but limited evidence is available regarding its use in endodontics. The aim of this study is to assess the healing pattern of conventional periradicular microsurgery and piezoelectric periradicular microsurgery in 2- Dimensional and 3-Dimensional imaging, and further to perform histological analysis for the presence, location, and arrangement of bacteria in the excised apical portion of the root canal system.
