There are about 1098 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Lithuania. 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 study is conducted to see if ziltivekimab reduces the risk of having cardiovascular events (for example heart attack and stroke) in people with cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease and inflammation. Participants will either get ziltivekimab (active medicine) or placebo (a dummy medicine which has no effect on the body). This is known as the study medicine. Which treatment participants get is decided by chance. Participants chance of getting ziltivekimab or placebo is the same. Ziltivekimab is not yet approved in any country or region in the world. It is a new medicine doctors cannot prescribe. Participants will get the study medicine in a pre filled syringe. Participants will need to use the pre filled syringe to inject the study medicine into a skinfold once-monthly. The study is expected to last for up to 4 years. Participants will have up to 20 clinic visits. Participants will have blood and urine samples taken at most of the clinic visits. Participants will have their heart examined using sound waves (echocardiography) and electrodes (electrocardiogram). Women cannot take part if pregnant, breast-feeding or planning to get pregnant during the study period.
Coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19) affected the health care systems all around the world. The collateral damage of the pandemic on the cardiovascular (CV) care and CV mortality has been noticed and reported early. In Lithuania, first quarantine measurements were introduced on 16th March and lifted on 16th June of 2020, limiting contact appointments to urgent care only. This led to a substantial proportion of routine cardiovascular appointments, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures being cancelled and greatly limited the availability of cardiovascular care. The prognostic impact of this has not been appropriately analysed. Also, comprehensive analyses of the changes in national CV services, including outpatient care and hospitalisations and CV mortality, during different periods of the pandemic (during first and second waves and in between) are scarce. The objectives of this population-based study were: (1) to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on CV care (2) to compare rates of outpatient care visits and hospitalisations of cardiovascular patients in different periods of 2019 and 2020 (3) to compare the rates of CV mortality in Lithuania in different periods of 2019 and 2020 (4) to investigate sex and age differences in CV care and CV mortality
The aim of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of proanthocyanidins as an adjunctive periodontal therapy in patients with periodontitis. Recently proanthocyanidins were proposed as a viable adjunct to periodontal treatment. Preclinical studies have shown high antibacterial and anti-inflammatory capacities of proanthocyanidins, that could reduce periodontal inflammation and promote periodontal tissues regeneration. In addition, proanthocyanidins demonstrate a specific antibacterial characteristic to attack periodonto-pathogenic bacteria (Porphyromonas gingivalis) but save the oral commensal bacteria (Streptococcus salivarius). Patients with periodontitis (stage III-IV) were included in this study. Healthy individuals were also enrolled as no-treatment control. Patients with periodontitis received two different treatment modalities: subgingival instrumentation only (SI group) or subgingival instrumentation and subgingival application of collagen hydrogels with proanthocyanidins (SI+PACNs group). Clinical periodontal parameters (PPD, BOP, PI) were evaluated before treatment and after 6 weeks. Concentrations of immunological markers MMP-3 and TIMP-1 in saliva were investigated.
The study "Competitive Accuracy of Radiological Imaging Compared to Liver Biopsy in Patients With Liver Fibrosis" is designed to test the accuracy of non-interventional radiological imaging and compare its results with the "gold standard" liver biopsy. This is prospective non-randomized single patient group study.
The aim of the study is to describe the post-covid-19 syndrome in Lithuanian population regarding the remaining symptoms and their impact on physical functioning, work ability and needs of rehabilitation.
The purpose of this study was to assess the effect or ordinary and differential learning based physiotherapy for torso control, balance and gait on subjects with ischemic stroke in the second phase of rehabilitation
The purpose of this study is to assess the performance and safety for the use of the OPTRELL Catheter for intracardiac mapping in the atria and ventricles.
The aim of the biomedical research is to determine the informativeness and prognostic factors of surface electromyography by assessing the probability of recovery of balance and gait parameters in the second stage of rehabilitation of persons with cerebral infarction.
This is a Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, multicenter, non-inferiority study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of FEP-ZID vs. meropenem in the treatment of hospitalized adults with cUTI or AP. Approximately 504 hospitalized adult subjects (≥ 18 years of age) diagnosed with cUTI or AP will be enrolled in the study. The diagnosis of cUTI or AP will be based on a combination of clinical symptoms and signs plus the presence of pyuria. The total duration of treatment with study drug is 7 to 10 days. Each subject must remain hospitalized during the study drug treatment period; no outpatient parenteral antibiotic therapy is allowed.
This is a randomised, double-blind, multicentre clinical study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, tolerability, PK, and immunogenicity of SB17 compared to Stelara® in subjects with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
