There are about 177 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Kuwait. 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.
KDD is developing a new line of no-added-sugar products in line with its metabolic reengineering initiative and its metabolic matrix. The recipes fundamentally do not alter total saturated fat or protein levels and mainly offer the benefit of no added sugar and a significant reduction in net carbohydrates as well glycaemic index.
Kuwait and the Gulf Region lack large longitudinal studies that identify risk factors dictating the onset of prediabetes and the progression to diabetes. The Kuwait Diabetes Epidemiology Program (KDEP), previously carried out at Dasman Diabetes Institute, was designed to develop a research dataset providing a random sampling of the Kuwaiti population. The dataset contained primarily epidemiology data for healthy, prediabetic and diabetic individuals; and was designed to serve as a resource for research and prevention programs on obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. The KDEP data supported research studies at DDI to delineate risk factors for metabolic disease from the views of genetics, biochemistry, immunology and epidemiology. One of the main limitations of the KDEP study was that it only captured a cross-sectional view of the participants in terms of diabetes status as well as lack of extensive phenotyping. In the current study, the investigators aim to perform a follow up on the non-diabetic KDEP cohort participants to enrich it with detailed physiological, genetic, biochemical and environmental data and thereby to establish an association between the development of diabetes and multidimensional risk factors. the investigatorswill also recruit family members of the KDEP and RA2010-005 participants as well as others with family history of diabetes to better identify familial patterns in risk factors. The outcome of this effort will immediately serve as a scientific baseline for developing prevention strategies for the control and management of obesity, diabetes and associated complications such as cardiovascular disease. Given the magnitude of the social and economic burden of diabetes on the Kuwaiti population, longitudinal data from the KDEP Follow-up study should play an important role in establishing the incidence of T2D progression in non-diabetic participants that were enrolled in the initial study as well as of progression to diabetes complications. This will have a positive impact on the population by providing clinicians with data to better target their patient management and by supporting policy and decision-makers in developing comprehensive health promotion programs to control these diseases at the national level.
A Multicountry, Multicenter, Non-interventional, Retrospective Study to determine Real-world treatment patterns and associated outcomes after FIRST LINE Osimertinib in patients with advanced and Metastatic NSCLC harboring EGFR-activating mutations in the GCC Region
The aim of the current study is to determine the effects of resistance exercise on performance of the Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test and the Colour Trails Test.
The aims of the current study are 1. to compare the effects of acute morning and afternoon resistance exercise on blood glucose levels in people with type 1 diabetes. 2. to compare the effects of morning and afternoon resistance exercise training on cardiometabolic health outcomes in people with type 1 diabetes
Safety and efficacy of wide awake local anesthesia no torniquet technique (WALANT) in ankle surgery. Studying risks and benefits from WALANT compared to general anesthesia . WALANT expected to decrease in intraoperative/post operative pain at the surgical site and decrease hospital time .
Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is the most common presentation of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). It causes significant morbidity and mortality. The Gulf Registry of Acute Coronary Events (Gulf RACE) was conducted in 2007 and filled a wide gap in our understanding of ACS and its management in Kuwait and the Arabian Gulf region. However, the management of ACS has undergone tremendous advances over the last two decades involving pharmacotherapy and device therapy. Practice guidelines have also changed over the last decade. For example, in 2007, there was no catheterization laboratory in any of the general hospitals in Kuwait, primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was not being practiced, and the rate of in-hospital cardiac catheterization for all ACS patients was very low at around 10%. Currently, of the eight general hospitals in Kuwait, six have catheterization laboratories and five of the six serve as primary PCI centers. There is no contemporary ACS registry in Kuwait, studying its incidence, management, and influence of current changes in clinical practice on patients' outcomes. This multicentre disease-based, country-wide registry is guided by the American Heart Association policy statement for expanding the applications of existing and future clinical registries and the User's Guide published by the Agency for Health care Research and Quality guidance.
A prospective, controlled, interventional clinical study, includes all patients (16 years) with symptomatic epiphora and diagnosed with grade 1 or grade 2 acquired punctal stenosis. All patients undergo punctal dilatation, canalicular probing and nasolacrimal duct irrigation. Afterwards, patients are divided into two groups: Group A: patients receive only medical treatment in the form of topical 0.05% cyclosporin (Restasis®, Allergan Inc) twice daily for 6 months. Group B: patients receive mini-Monoka stent insertion in the lower canaliculus for 6 months. Outcome measures are changes in Munk scoring, grading of the punctum, functional and anatomical success. Functional success is defined as Munk score 0 to 1. Anatomical success is defined as grade 3 punctum.
The goal of this clinical trial is to assess the efficacy and outcome of sealer-based obturation (SBO) using a new calcium silicate sealer in comparison with warm vertical compaction (WVC) using a resin-based sealer, which is the current gold standard.
As both oxytocin and carbetocin are used daily in obstetric units all over the world, the investigators find it compelling to investigate whether the hemodynamic and myocardial effects of oxytocin and carbetocin are comparable in healthy women during delivery and determine any potential harmful effects following the use of oxytocin or Carbetocin as uterotonic. Other endpoints relating to uterus tone, blood loss, blood pressure, heart rate, post-operative pain and side effects will also be assessed.
