There are about 1641 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Malaysia. 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.
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is an increasingly common condition of pregnancy and is associated with adverse foetal, infant, and maternal outcomes. Over 50% of women with history of GDM will develop type 2 diabetes (T2D) in later life. Asian women experience disproportionate risk of both GDM and T2D compared to women from other ethnic groups. Lifestyle interventions have been proven to be effective in preventing progression to T2DM in high-risk populations. This is a two-arm, parallel feasibility RCT. Sixty Malaysian women with GDM will be randomized to receive the intervention or standard care in the antenatal period to 12 months postpartum. The intervention is a diabetes prevention intervention delivered via a smartphone application developed based on the Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills (IMB) model of behavior change and group support utilizing motivational interviewing, which will provide women with tailored information and support to encourage weight loss through adapted dietary intake and physical activity. Women in the control arm will receive standard care.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prophylactic effect of JNJ-64281802 with respect to the prevention of laboratory-confirmed dengue virus (DENV) infection up to last day of dosing among participants who have no evidence of current DENV infection at baseline.
The main purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence of Malaysian children aged ≥ 6 to ≤ 36 months at risk of anaemia by measuring Total Haemoglobin (SpHb) using a non-invasive haemoglobin assessment. Eligible subjects, and their parent(s) / legally acceptable representative(s) where applicable, who fulfil all the inclusion and none of the exclusion criteria will be enrolled into the study. Parameters will be recorded during the subjects visit at the MCHC using a self-administered 24-hour Diet Recall. Demographics and subject / family characteristics will be recorded at this visit by using questionnaire built into Iron Strong app which act as a data collection tool.For subjects with haemoglobin level <12 g/dL, the subject will be considered "at risk of anaemia" and as a standard operating procedure, the child will be referred to HCPs for further clinical assessment.
To examine the degree of nausea, vomiting between the acupressure and control group in women with hyperemesis gravidarum
This study will evaluate the safety efficacy of nanatinostat in combination with valganciclovir in patients with relapsed/refractory EBV-positive solid tumors and in combination with pembrolizumab in patients with recurrent/metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma
Chronotype and chrononutrition, both are emerging research fields in nutritional epidemiology. However, its association with glycemic control in the global population is less clear. A better understanding of how activity/ eating time can influence glucose levels in prediabetic individuals may improve strategies for blood glucose control. The present paper described the research protocol which aims to determine the associations of chronotype and chrononutrition with glucose tolerance among prediabetic individuals in Malaysia.
Gathering knowledge on the use of Dymista® in Asian patients who receive Dymista® for the first time in routine clinical practice
This is a sham-controlled randomized trial to identify the effectiveness of treating insomnia induced by anxiety with self-administered auricular acupressure in Malaysia.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the positivity rate of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza virus and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in high-risk participants presenting with acute respiratory infections (ARIs) in outpatient settings during the influenza/RSV season and to evaluate the association between lower respiratory tract disease (LRTD) and ARI-related hospitalization in participants positive for RSV.
Background and objective(s): Periodontitis is initiated by a dysbiotic host-microbe relationship. Standard periodontal treatment involves oral hygiene education, mechanical debridement and periodic follow-ups with the aims of pocket closure and maintaining a symbiotic microbial community. Nonetheless, this therapy alone may fail due to the limitations of mechanical instrumentation. The use of antimicrobial in combination to subgingival debridement has been proposed for initial and recurrent periodontitis to enhance the effectiveness of mechanical instrumentation. Antimicrobial peptide (AMP) comprised of a wide range of peptide, was found naturally in various life forms or manufactured as a synthetic compound. This study was conducted to evaluate the use of AMP as an adjunct to non-surgical periodontal treatment in terms of clinical and microbiological outcomes. Hypothesis • There are changes in clinical periodontal parameters and subgingival microbial profile following treatment with locally delivered synthetic AMP.
