NCT ID: NCT05198453 Completed - COVID-19 Clinical Trials

Impact of Vaccination in Acute COVID-19

Start date: August 16, 2021
Study type: Observational

The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between vaccination with one of the four SARS-CoV-2 vaccines authorized for use in the European Union-BNT162b2, ChAdOx-1S, mRNA-1273 or Ad.26.COV2.S-and progression to critically severe disease among adult patients with PCR-confirmed acute COVID-19.

NCT ID: NCT05191290 Recruiting - Anticoagulation Clinical Trials

Comparison of Biocompatibility of Plasmapheresis Procedures With Citrate and Heparin Anticoagulation

Start date: December 28, 2021
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

Membrane plasmapheresis is one of the methods for treating immune diseases. Plasmapheresis removes autoantibodies and immune complexes, paraproteins, lipoproteins and reduces the concentration of cytokines. In membrane plasmapheresis, plasma is separated from blood cells by a highly permeable membrane. The filtered plasma is then discarded and replaced with replacement fluid. During the procedure, there is an activation of the coagulation system, because of the extracorporeal blood circulation. The anticoagulation during the procedure is therefore necessary.

NCT ID: NCT05185024 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Iron Deficiency Anemia

Daily Oral Iron Supplementation for Replenishment of Depleted Iron in Adults

Start date: January 10, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The study is designed as a parallel, randomized, double blind, three-arm single-center study exploring the efficacy and safety of 12-week once daily oral dosing of iron for correction of overall iron status in 150 otherwise healthy iron-deficient adults presenting with or without mild microcytic anemia. Three iron-containing preparations in the form of either Ferrous Sulfate Capsules, >Your< Iron Forte Capsules, or >Your< Iron Forte Liquid will be tested. Potential study participants will be recruited from the general population of 18-50 year old adults. Participant eligibility will be determined by screening for hemoglobin and ferritin (in combination with C-reactive protein) levels in a sample of venous blood. Eligible individuals will be invited to participate in the study. Enrolled participants will be randomized into one of three intervention groups in a 1:1:1 ratio, receiving either Ferrous Sulfate Capsules, >Your< Iron Forte Capsules, or >Your< Iron Forte Liquid. Efficacy and safety of the assigned interventions will be evaluated through analyses of relevant hematological (hemoglobin, red blood cell indices) and biochemical (ferritin, transferrin saturation) iron-related parameters and reported adverse events after the first 4 and after a total of 12 weeks of intervention.

NCT ID: NCT05166278 Completed - Education Clinical Trials

The Effectiveness of De-escalation in Management of Aggression

Start date: April 1, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

A multicenter, intervention study will be conducted in all psychiatric hospitals in Slovenia. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effect of verbal and non-verbal de-escalation techniques on the incidence and severity of aggressive behavior and on the incidence and duration of physical restraints. The proposed hypothesis is that de-escalation training and regular use of de-escalation can reduce aggressive incidents and the use of physical restraints in the acute psychiatric ward. In Slovenia, inpatient psychiatric treatment is provided by six psychiatric hospitals. There are two acute psychiatric wards in each hospital, one for male and one for female patients. All hospitals will be invited to participate in the study. The study will be carried out in two phases, a baseline period of five consecutive months and an intervention period of the same five consecutive months in the following year. At the end of the baseline period, hospitals will be randomly assigned to either the experimental or control group. The intervention will include training on verbal and nonverbal de-escalation techniques for staff teams in experimental wards. The first part of the education is based on theoretical backgrounds: aggressive behavior in a psychiatric patient, risk factors, communication, de-escalation. The second part is a practical workshop. The training will be 16-hour duration in total. A short handbook and a list of verbal and non-verbal approaches will be prepared for all staff members involved in the training. For the baseline and intervention phase, data on the number and severity of aggressive incidents, the number and duration of physical restraint episodes, and the number of aggressive or restrained patients will be obtained.

NCT ID: NCT05156177 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Correlation of Fecal Microbiome and Its Metabolites With Outcome of Radiotherapy in Head and Neck Carcinoma

Start date: December 1, 2021
Study type: Observational

Preclinical studies have shown that the response of solid tumors and normal tissues to radiotherapy can be regulated by gut microbiota and its metabolites. In this study, the composition of gut microbiota in patients with locally advanced head and neck cancers undergoing definitive radiotherapy will be analysed together with bacterial metabolites in stool and blood and a possible correlation with treatment outcome and treatment toxicity will be determined.

NCT ID: NCT05155865 Recruiting - Heart Failure Clinical Trials

Conduction System Pacing Versus Biventricular Pacing for Cardiac resYNChronization

Start date: January 10, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) with biventricular pacing (BiV) is the cornerstone treatment for heart failure patients with ventricular dyssynchrony. Recently, a new concept, conduction system pacing (CSP) with permanent pacing, including His bundle pacing and left bundle branch pacing, has been proposed as a potential alternative to conventional BiV-CRT. The prospective, randomized trial will compare echocardiographic, electrocardiographic, and clinical effects of CSP versus conventional BiV pacing in heart failure patients with reduced ejection fraction (LVEF ≤ 35%), sinus rhythm, and left bundle branch block. Patients will be randomized to either CSP or biventricular pacing study group and followed up for at least 6 months. The study will explore whether CSP is non-inferior to BiV pacing in echocardiographic, electrocardiographic, and clinical outcomes.

NCT ID: NCT05143853 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Acromioclavicular Separation

HORizontal Instability AC Joint Study A Prospective Randomised Clinical Trial

Start date: April 23, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Comparing different treatement strategies in augmenting clavicle stabilisation

NCT ID: NCT05123768 Enrolling by invitation - Cerebral Palsy Clinical Trials

Genetic Etiology in Patients With Cerebral Palsy

Start date: April 1, 2021
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a permanent disorder of movement or posture due to non-progressive impairments of the developing brain. Current estimates indicate that as many as 30% of CP cases may be genetic in nature. In our study, the investigators will re-examine the data of children with CP, who are registered in the Slovenian National Registry of Cerebral Palsy. All children will be invited to the University Children's Hospital, University Medical Centre Ljubljana, where they will be re-examined by a neurologist. Blood for genetic testing will be taken. In the case of confirmed genetic ethiology of CP, the search for specific therapy will be possible.

NCT ID: NCT05100680 Completed - Nail Damage Clinical Trials

Study of the Effect of 12-week Dietary Supplementation With a Multicomponent Nutritional Supplement on Nails and Skin

Start date: November 25, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled efficacy study in one period will include 34 participants divided into two groups. One group will receive a test product (n = 22; test group; multicomponent dietary supplement including MSM and several vitamins and minerals); the other group received placebo capsules (n = 12; placebo group; only modified starch). Volunteers will take two capsules / day orally continuously daily for 12 weeks to assess the effect of these substances on nail growth and condition and skin.

NCT ID: NCT05095805 Recruiting - Amputation Clinical Trials

Weight-bearing Exercise for Trans-tibial Amputees

Start date: October 14, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

A simple weight-bearing exercise has been designed using off-the-shelves devices (Nintendo Wii Balance Board) and centre of pressure (COP) analysis software (Python) for trans-tibial amputees receiving their first prosthesis. A pilot randomised control study will be conducted to check the progress with weight-bearing training using COP-based objective measures. Additionally, gait and functional task performance will be assessed by means of clinical test. Participants will be divided into 2 groups: test group (performing additional weight-bearing exercises) and control group (receiving only conventional training for fitting of initial prosthesis).
