There are about 836 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Slovenia. 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 study is to examine the relationship between lipid subfractions, inflammation and structural-functional properties of the arterial wall in patients after myocardial infarction with high lipoprotein (a) (Lp (a)) levels, to study genetic polymorphisms that determine lipid subfractions concentration on the functional and morphological properties of the arterial vascular wall in patients after myocardial infarction with high Lp (a) levels, to study the effect of pelacarsen on lipid subfractions, inflammation and structural-functional properties of arterial wall in patients after myocardial infarction with high Lp (a) levels and to study the influence of NOS-3 gene expression on the functional and morphological properties of the arterial vascular wall in the same patients. Impaired blood fat metabolism and chronic inflammation represent possible causes of atherosclerosis. Lp (a) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease and a prognostic predictor in patients after myocardial infarction. Despite recommended screening for elevated Lp (a), there is no specific drug treatment approved to reduce cardiovascular risk through lowering Lp (a). Besides subtilisin-kexin convertase type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors, antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) are currently only therapeutic agents that significantly reduce serum Lp (a) concentration. Pelacarsen by using an ASO directed against the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) of apolipoprotein (a), reduces the production of apolipoprotein (a) in the liver and thus, the level of Lp (a). However, there are no data on the relationship between Lp (a) values and polymorphisms for Lp (a), indicators of inflammation and impaired arterial function, and response to treatment with pelacarsen in patients after myocardial infarction with extremely high Lp (a) levels.
Infertile PCOS women with obesity were included into lifestyle change weight loss program prior to inclusion to IVF procedures. They attended group as well as individual workouts and they were advised on healthy eating.
The aim of the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, one-period effectiveness study is to compare the effects of multiple-dose 12 weeks daily dietary supplementation with 10 g collagen alone or 5 g or 10 g of collagen in combination with MSM on skin in healthy human subjects in comparison to placebo product. The main objective is to show that test products have beneficial effects on dermis density, and also on other skin parameters and to investigate differences in the effects among test products.
Patients after stroke with upper limb spasticity treated with botulinum toxin-A (BTX-A) will be included in this two-part study. In the first part, goal attainment scaling and comprehensive assessment of motor functioning will be performed before BTX-A application and after two weeks. In the second part, the patients will be randomised into a test group performing prescribed regular exercise for two weeks and a control group exercising at their own discretion during the same period, whereby the patients' health-related quality of life will be assessed at the beginning and end of the two-week period.
The study evaluates the effects of Hericium erinaceus on microbiota, cognition, and other health parameters in older adults. All measurements will be performed at baseline and ten weeks after daily consumptions of either Hericium erinaceus or placebo.
This registry will make it possible to describe real life management of patients with rare actionable fusions and to better understand these cancers. In addition of clinical data from the medical files, a quality of life questionnaire (QLQ-C30) will be complete at inclusion, at each new treatment and then every 6 months. The patients will be followed for a period of at least 2 years after the inclusion. This TRacKING registry is a European collaborative tool to improve the management of patients with actionable fusions, by sharing of data from rare tumor indications.
Cytokine hemoadsorption is a novel therapy used to improve outcome in critically ill patients with a dysregulated cytokine response and hemodynamic instability. Patients on extracorporeal membraneous oxygenation (ECMO) often develop severe systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). Cytokine removal using different types of hemoadsorption devices is believed to block the vicious circle of inflammation dysregulation when other basic therapeutic measures fail. To date there are very limited reports on ECMO and cytokine hemoadsorption combination therapy. The aim of this retrospective study is to evaluate feasibility and effectiveness of hemoadsorption in veno-arterial and veno-venous ECMO patients.
General objectives of the project Defining healthy ageing factors; Setting up content-related bases of the international excellence centre (SLO-ITA) in the field of health of elderly citizens; Raising awareness on the significance of healthy ageing, social inclusion and mobility of less privileged populations (the elderly); Reducing the costs of health care; Connecting the existing health care, social and private entities and improving their mutual coordination.
The aim of our study is to compare plasma metanephrines in patients with cyanotic and acyanotic congenital heart disease and possible association with chronic hypoxic stress.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of guselkumab treatment in participants with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) by assessing the reduction in signs and symptoms of PsA.
