There are about 123 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Morocco. 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.
Background: Although acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication in patients receiving extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), and the CRRT impact is widely studied. The incidence of simultaneous use of ECMO and CRRT remain unclear. Objective: The investigatore conducted this retrospective study to define the incidence of concomitant CRRT with ECMO therapy and to determine the overall impact of this strategy on patient outcomes such as mortality and renal recovery. Methods: The investigatore retrospectively analyzed data of patients of all ages, genders and ethnicities, admitted in the intensive care unit of Mohammed VI University Hospital, Oujda, Morocco, on a cumulative period of 2 years (January 2019 - December 2020). Were enrolled in the study patients who benefited from ECMO, and presented an acute kidney injury afterwards, using 'Microsoft Excel' as a software to utilize the information collected from the computerized patient database. 30 patients were included in the final study.
Background: Procalcitonin (PCT) is a biomarker that has been proposed as a helpful tool in inflammatory Clinique cases specially patient with pulmonary bacterienne infection . Materials and methods the investigatore had retrospectively reviewed the electronic records and lists of all 582 COVID-19 patients admitted on the ICU of Hospital university Mohammed VI , Oujda. Between 01 juin 2020 and 31juanary 2021 , and analyzed the relation of PCT value and mortality at 30 days until we can defined a cut off Procalcitonine to use as a marker of severity and high mortality .
Introduction: The main manifestation of COVID-19 pneumonia is acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which in some cases can be more severe than intubation, extracorporeal membrane venous oxygenation (VV-ECMO) to ensure hematosis. Despite support from VV-ECMO, some patients may remain hypoxemic. One possible therapeutic procedure for these patients is the application of the prone position. Objective: The main aim of this study was to investigate the modification of the PaO2/FiO2 ratio, the compliance of the respiratory system in VV-ECMO with refractory hypoxemia. The secondary objective was to evaluate the safety and feasibility of the inclined position for ECMO. Methods: the investigators reviewed the electronic records and lists of all 23 COVID-19 patients. were placed for the first time in PP with an average duration of 16 h . patient characteristics, pre-ECMO characteristics, ventilator/ECMO settings, and changes in ventilator/ECMO settings and blood gas analysis before and after PP.
This study is a cluster randomized trial carried out in schools of secondary cities of four low- and middle income countries. Baseline surveys in 30 randomly selected schools will assess the health behaviours of 13-17 year old students as well as school policies and practices. The intervention arm (15 schools) will use the baseline information to develop a package of actions in collaboration with students, teachers, and local authorities that will subsequently be implemented an monitored over two years. Follow-up surveys to evaluate the effectiveness of the implemented actions will be conducted after two years in all 30 previously selected schools.
Proteins play an important role as structural and functional components for the human body and prevent stunting. Protein quality has a great importance in meeting the nutritional needs of populations across the world throughout the life course, particularly during pregnancy and early childhood. Dietary protein deficiency is mainly due to protein indigestibility limiting indispensable amino acids (IAAs) bioavailability. In Morocco, as it's the case in many developing countries, diet is mainly based on a large consumption of cereals, fruits, vegetables and pulses, and is generally low in meat, which is the main source of protein and IAA. The general objective of this study is to evaluate the digestibility of Fava bean proteins and bioavailability of IAA using a dual-tracer method with stable isotopes.
Through its anti-inflammatory role, molecular hydrogen could have a beneficial effect in preventing the runaway inflammatory reactions that lead to complications of Covid-19. This hypothesis is supported by numerous preclinical and theoretical arguments, as well as by some Chinese clinical studies (the Chinese guidelines for the management of Covid-19 recommend the inhalation of hydrogen), a recommendation whose interest has just been confirmed by a publication describing the very positive results of a clinical study in China. Through its anti-inflammatory role, molecular hydrogen could have a beneficial effect in preventing the runaway inflammatory reactions that lead to complications of Covid-19. The ingestion of water saturated with molecular hydrogen has been the subject of several clinical studies in other indications than Covid-19, and no side effects of this ingestion have been reported. A recent publication recommends initiating clinical trials using a hydrogen fortified beverage.
Post Mastectomy Pain Syndrome (PMPS) is a major complication of breast surgery responsible for depression and disability. The project consists of a prospective cohort on patients going for oncological breast surgery at National Institute of Oncology of Rabat. Chronic postoperative pain (CPP) remains a disturbing and obscure clinical problem, which could last for more than 3 months after surgery. The aim of present study was to assess the prevalence of CPP, investigate its impact on life quality and explore its potential risk factors. After informed consent was signed, patients receiving surgery under general anesthesia in Peking Union Medical College Hospital and other medical centers participating in this study during 2018 will be included. Patients' preoperative information will be collected from medical record, including basic demographic data, primary disease and previous chronic diseases. Intraoperative information will be obtained from anesthesia record, including surgical scope, duration, length and location of incisions and blood loss. Acute pain will be evaluated in the ward of the department of surgery, when an app will be installed on patients' mobile phones. Our long-term postoperative follow-up would be performed by sending out survey questionnaires via this app in the 4th, 8th, 16th, 32th, and 48th weeks after surgery. The survey covers questions regarding the intensity, characteristic, location and impact on daily activities of CPP. Information regarding treatment of CPP will also be collected, if any. All the data gained will be summarized in our database and analyzed.
The QoR-15 Is a post operative recovery score developed in 2013 from the QoR-40 with an advantage of simplification. The investigators Aim to translate and to validate a such useful score in Arabic adapted for Morocco by a full psychometric evaluation of the Arabic version, by testing its validity, reliability, responsiveness, and clinical acceptability and feasibility, with patients undergoing abdominal, thoracic, gynecological surgery, or digestive endoscopy in the National Institute of Oncology of Rabat, affiliated to Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco.
This study compares 2 medicines for type 2 diabetes: semaglutide (new medicine) and a dummy medicine (placebo). Semaglutide will be tested to see how well it works compared to the dummy medicine. The study will also test if semaglutide is safe in children and teenagers. Participants will either get semaglutide or the dummy medicine - which one is decided by chance. Participants will take 1 tablet of the study medicine every morning on an empty stomach. They have to wait 30 minutes before they eat, drink or take any other medication by mouth. The study will last for about 1 year and 3 months (66 weeks). Participants will have 12 clinic visits and 8 phone calls with the study doctor. At all 12 clinic visits, participants will have blood samples taken. Participants will also be asked some questions.
