There are about 7967 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Poland. 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 aim of the study will be to evaluate the effect of oral messages on wrist and finger flexor muscle activity during the application of sham therapy in the form of paper plaster. For years, research has been conducted on the effects of dynamic plaster and rigid plaster on muscle function. In many cases, reports from different authors are contradictory. Therefore, the planned study will use placebo paper plaster with no proven therapeutic effect.
The aim of the study is to assess impact of Fecal Microbiota Transfer (FMT) on clinical symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Assesment of tremor, slowness of movements and balance problems before and after FMT will be performed. The effect of FMT on frequency of constipations, which are common among Parkinson disease patients and have negative impact on quality of life and drug absorption will also be assessed. Detailed assessment of absorption of levodopa, which is the golden standard of treatment of Parkinson disease, is planned. It is planned to recruit 40 patients with diagnosis of Parkinson disease and indications for colonoscopy (constipations, age >50 years). Patients will be randomly assigned to the group receiving treatment with FMT or identically looking placebo. It will be administered to intestine during colonoscopy. Patients will be assessed by neurologist few times after the procedure. Psychological assessment and examination of gait and balance by physiotherapist is also planned. The last assessment will be performed after 12 months to see if the clinical effect can be observed for such a long time. The composition of the intestinal microbiota will be carefully assessed before and after the procedure in order to identify pathogens that may affect the course of the disease.
Being active has a beneficial effect on human immunology. Patients hospitalized for COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) will be surveyed for their prior physical activity. In order to show the relationship between the level of usual physical activity and the course of the disease, the following variables will be analyzed to express the disease severity: death or discharge from the hospital, length of the in-hospital stay, laboratory parameters, used ventilation method.
Autoinflammatory diseases (AID) are clinical entities characterized by recurrent inflammatory attacks in absence of infection, neoplasm or deregulation of the adaptive immune system. Among them, hereditary periodic syndromes, also known as monogenic AID, represent the prototype of this disease group, caused by mutations in genes involved in the regulation of innate immunity, inflammation and cell death. Based on recent experimental acquisitions in the field of monogenic AID, several immunologic disorders have been reclassified as polygenic/multifactorial AID, sharing pathogenetic and clinical features with hereditary periodic fevers. This has paved the way to new treatment targets for patients suffering from rare diseases of unknown origin, including Behçet's disease, Still disease, Schnitzler's disease, PFAPA (periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis and cervical adenitis) syndrome, chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO), non-infectious uveitis and scleritis. Gathering information on such rare conditions is made difficult by the small number of patients, along with the difficulty of obtaining an accurate diagnosis in non-specialized clinical settings. In this context, the AIDA project promotes international collaboration among clinical centres to develop a permanent registry aimed at collecting demographic, genetic, clinical and therapeutic data of patients affected by monogenic and polygenic AID, in order to expand the current knowledge of these rare conditions.
The trial will determine the impact of an information- and education-focused interventions on the anxiety levels, and patients' experiences as well as satisfaction of patients aged 10-14 and their caregivers during the MR examination.
The overall objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of rabbit antithymocyte globulin in the treatment of Graves orbitopathy (GO) after ineffective treatment with moderate-to-high doses of glucocorticoids.
The effects of air pollution on the frequency of hospital admissions and mortality due to acute coronary syndromes, atrial fibrillation, and renal disfunction are noted also in areas perceived as pollution-free (due to the lack of large industry). The aim of the project is to assess the impact of air pollution in Eastern Poland on regional public health.
The diaphragm performs many functions that are vital to the body as a whole. Some of them are not related only to ventilation. The diaphragm is part of the myofascial system in the human body. Therefore, the proper functioning of the diaphragm should be a significant element of physiotherapy, e.g. in patients reporting pain in the lumbosacral spine. Considering the complex role of the diaphragm, it seems reasonable to investigate the influence of the mobilization of the diaphragm (aimed at reducing diaphragm tension) on the tension of the extensor muscles of the lumbar spine. The assumption of this reserach is to investigate the correlation between the tension of the fascia in the area of the diaphragm to the tension of the muscles in the area of the lumbar spine. The fascial connections between the diaphragm and the muscles in the lumbar spine presented above suggest that the manual therapy performed within the diaphragm can effectively prevent the occurrence of pain, and might be a supportive measure in the treatment of pain in the spine. The aim of the study is to investigate the corellation between the tension of the fascia within the diaphragm and the tension of the posterior superficial tape. Research questions: 1. How does manual therapy in the area of the tendon attachments of the diaphragm affect the relaxation of the extensor muscles of the lumbar spine? 2. How can the therapy conducted only within the diaphragm, without interfering with the structures surrounding the spine, reduce the tension of the extensor muscles of the lumbar spine and, consequently, increase the range of its mobility in all planes? 3. How will the introduced therapy change the tidal volume of the lungs?
The aim of the study is to compare two methods of oxygen therapy in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome in the course of SARS-CoV2 pneumonia. The initial method of oxygen supply during coronavirus pneumonia is conventional oxygen therapy using a face mask or nasal cannula. However, there have been reports in the literature that early initiation of high-flow oxygen therapy with a nasal cannula is associated with better prognosis. The study we perform is intended to provide reliable evidence for confirmation this hypothesis.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of guselkumab in participants with Crohn's disease.
