There are about 4478 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Norway. 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.
The present study is the last part of a larger project investigating the health, quality of life and function of men having received radical treatment for prostate cancer in 2014-2018. In this study, physical function and level of physical activity will be tested and registered in a selection of older men who participated in the foregoing parts of the project. Comparisons will be made to similar data from a population-based cohort, matched on age and education.
Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma is a rare neoplasm. The most common type, the epithelioid type, has been further divided into histological patterns of tubulo-papillary, acinar, adenomatoid, micropapillary, or solid. Its prognosis is improved by the use of a locoregional treatment combining extensive cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), which increases survival up to 50 months. Histology is one of the most important prognostic variable that, forms the basis for treatment decisions. However, the prognostic of the epithelioid type varies greatly due to its tumor heterogeneity. It is therefore necessary to find prognostic factors of malignant epithelioid peritoneal mesothelioma in order to better define the therapeutic strategy. Among histological factors, solid growth, tumor necrosis, nuclear atypia, and mitotic count were found to be independent prognostic factors in epithelioid malignant pleural mesothelioma. However, in epithelioid malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (EMPM), these factors were studied in small and heterogeneous series in terms of histological growth and definitions used for histological factors. The present large study was conducted to investigate the prognostic impact of several histologic factors in EMPM. Their prognosis impacts were assessed using overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) in EMPM.
Examine whether daily oral ingestion of a immunomodulatory mushroom extract (AndoSanTM) in patients with asthma and allergy, undergoing allergen specific immunotherapy or who have asthma proven by metacholine provocation test, experience clinical and biochemical improvement in their disease. A prospective randomised study comparing the mushroom extract with placebo.
Proton therapy is a powerful tool enabling oncologists to spare normal tissue around the target for irradiation much better than what can be achieved with photon irradiation. The infiltrative nature of IDH-mutated grade II and III diffuse glioma, however, renders proton therapy a potential problem. A randomized controlled trial (RCT) is the only option when trying to ensure that chances of long-term survival are not impaired seeking to reduce unwanted late treatment effects. Non-inferiority of proton therapy compared to photon irradiation is the primary endpoint of the RCT. Hence, PRO-GLIO has two main objectives. First, PRO-GLIO will evaluate if proton therapy is safe in patients with IDH-mutated grade II and III diffuse glioma, showing that survival figures at 2 years from radiotherapy are not poorer in the proton arm than in the photon arm. Second, we want to find the true number of patients in need of rehabilitation in both arms, and evaluate if proton therapy conveys a higher QoL than photon irradiation at 2 years from radiotherapy.

The overall aim of the study is to explore substance use, tobacco use and lifestyle-related health problems among ageing patients in Opioid Maintenance Treatment (OMT), and other SUD treatment. The study will use already collected data from the multi-center, longitudinal, observational NorComt study (Norwegian Cohort of Patients in Opioid Maintenance Treatment and Other Drug Treatment study). NorComt is the largest longitudinal study of SUD patients in Norway. The data consists of data from OMT and other substance use disorders (SUD) treatment (N=548).
This is a prospective cohort study that will follow 60 patients treated with Proximal Medial Gastrocnemius Recession for Chronic Mid-Portion Achilles Tendinopathy for 5 years postoperatively.
Sleep disorders commonly co-occur with psychiatric disorders. Sleep disorders are often treated with medication or not at all in psychiatric care, although there exist a plethora of documentation of the effectiveness of sleep interventions. There is also an increase in studies showing effectiveness of sleep-interventions when the sleep disorder co-occurs with psychiatric illness. The recommended treatment for Delayed Sleep-Wake phase disorder is light therapy at gradually advanced timing and/or melatonin administered in order to help phase-advance the circadian rhythm. There is a great gap in the knowledge on how sleep disorders can be treated effectively when they occur comorbid to moderate and severe psychiatric illness. In this project the we therefore seek to investigate the effect of psychological and behavioural, group-based treatment in a randomized controlled trial (RCT) where sleep and psychiatric symptoms are the primary outcome measures.
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of multiple therapies in participants with locally advanced, unresectable, Stage III NSCLC with eligible biomarker status as determined by Version 8 of the American Joint Committee on Cancer/Union for International Cancer Control NSCLC staging system.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and preliminary clinical activity of CC-95251 alone and in combination with antineoplastic agents in participants with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia and relapsed or refractory and treatment-naive higher risk melodysplastic syndromes.
