There are about 2691 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Romania. 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 benefits of single or repetitive administration (1 to 6) can have similar result in terms of muscular strength and patients' quality of life improvement, benefiting of the advantages of polymerized polynucleotides (IRADYN) formulation.
The aim of this study is to objectively evaluate the effectiveness of radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy (rESWT) and conventional physical therapy program on the gait pattern through a new gait analysis system which encompasses spatiotemporal and kinematic parameters and to correlate the findings with the clinical evaluation.
Acute heart failure (AHF) is defined as rapid onset or rapid worsening of typical signs and symptoms of heart failure (HF) according to the 2016 European Society of Cardiology Guidelines. AHF is the first cause of hospitalization in people over 65 in Western countries, accounting for more than 1 million hospitalizations per year in the USA. This disease has many repercussions not only in terms of mortality and morbidity, but also in terms of resources and infrastructures necessary for these patients' treatment, which constitutes a high economic burden for the national health care system. Even with growing knowledge and means, nowadays, the prognosis of AHF is still poor and there are no proven therapies that lead to long-term benefits in terms of reduced mortality. A better management of the acute phase of decompensation, including the definition of effective diagnostic-therapeutic workup and the use of innovative drugs, could improve the course of the disease, with positive effects on the patient (gain in survival and reduction of admissions), but also on the community (containment of the overall health costs). In recent years, numerous scores have been outlined in various AHF settings, considering only a small number of parameters. Several prognostic models have been developed suggesting how difficult it is to evaluate the AHF patients' prognosis. All this effort towards the development of so numerous prognostic models is justified by the fact that, despite the evolution of treatments, the risk of re-hospitalization and of both intrahospital mortality and after discharge remains high. Several studies have investigated potential prognostic factors that could help evaluating the risk of cardiovascular events, but now there is no accurate and complete prognostic score, particularly for AHF patients. Therefore, to date there are no accurate scores or determinants of short- and medium-term prognosis that allow to improve the management of these patients. This will be an observational, prospective, multicentric, international, non-commercial (non-profit) study. The primary endpoint will be to evaluate the best parameters, among clinical, laboratory and echocardiographic variables assessed within 24 hours from the hospital admission and before discharge, that are able to predict rehospitalization for HF and cardiovascular death at 3 and 6 months, in patients admitted to the cardiology department for acute exacerbation of chronic HF or de novo AHF.
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.
This study assess the relationship between lower limb spasticity and trunk movements during static and dynamic balance in post-stroke patients who also underwent conventional physical therapy, visual feedback balance training and radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy intervention.
The purpose of the study is to enable participants with pulmonary hypertension (PH) currently treated with study intervention(s) in a clinical study (parent studies [NCT03422328, NCT03904693 and NCT04565990]), to continue to benefit from the intervention after closure of the parent study in case they have no alternative means of access to the study intervention. This study will allow assessment of the long-term safety of each study intervention. .
ORFAN is a prospective, multi-centre, multi-ethnic cohort observational study collecting CT scans, biological material and outcomes data, to develop and validate novel biomarkers of cardiometabolic and other disease risk.
Background: Online interventions can be a fast, cost-efficient, and convenient medium for providing breast cancer patients (BCP) with access to evidence-based interventions that address their emotional needs. As true as that may be, online interventions are still a novel research area that struggles in implementation. Objectives: This study aims to determine the acceptability, feasibility, and efficacy of Oncovox, an iACT-BC, a guided internet delivered ACT intervention designed to improve psychosocial outcomes in BCP diagnosed within the last two years when compared to treatment as usual. The primary outcomes in this study are health related quality of life, behavioural activation, symptom interference and reward observation. The secondary outcomes are psychosocial distress, anxiety and depression and psychological flexibility. Methods: A two-arm, parallel, open label, waiting list randomised controlled trial will investigate the effectiveness, feasibility, and acceptability of Oncovox. Expected results: It is anticipated that Oncovox will show to be effective, feasible and acceptable programme in improving health related quality of life, behavioural activation, symptom interference, reward observation, psychological distress, anxiety, depression, and psychological flexibility in BCP diagnosed in the last two years, as opposing to a waiting list control under treatment as usual. The results of this research will be published in accordance with CONSORT 2010 and CONSORT-EHEALTH guidelines and should be available for publication in September 2022.
The purpose of this Phase III study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of MEDI3506 Dose 1 and Dose 2 administered subcutaneously (SC) in adult participants with symptomatic COPD and history of ≥ 2 moderate or ≥ 1 severe exacerbation of COPD in the previous 12 months. Participants should be receiving optimised treatment with maintenance inhaled therapy (ICS/LABA/LAMA triple therapy, or dual therapy if triple is not indicated or contraindicated) in stable doses throughout at least 3 months prior to enrolment.
PALBO is a Non-Interventional, Single-Institution Study Of Real-World Evidence In Estrogen Receptor Positive, Her2 Negative Metastatic Breast Cancer Patients Treated With Palbociclib During A 2.5 Years Follow-Up Period. The primary objective is to identify pathological and clinical features of MBC that is associated with Palbociclib's best efficacy, measured by response rate (overall response rate, duration of response and best clinical response), progression free survival and OS. Safety of Palbociclib will also be evaluated.
