There are about 1845 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Slovakia. 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 project aims to explore the mechanisms by which lifelong exercise can promote healthy aging and slow down the negative impact of aging on the muscular system, immunity and the circadian system. The main goal of the project is to investigate the effect of lifelong endurance exercise on physical fitness, body composition, bone density and selected hormonal, biochemical, histological and molecular indicators of metabolic health and circadian clock function based on blood, immune cell and skeletal muscle tissue analyses in volunteers differentiated by age and weekly volume of physical activity. It is hypothesized that lifelong endurance exercise may have beneficial effects on the circadian system stability and many, but not all health outcomes. Osteopenia/osteoporosis and low-grade malnutrition may be more prevalent in the group of endurance-trained senior runners. In order to achieve the above research aims, sixty male subjects in total will be recruited according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. Four groups of subjects will differ according to their age and physical activity levels: - a group of endurance-trained seniors (age range 65 - 75 year old, n=15) ● a group of sedentary seniors (age range 65 - 75 year old, n=15) - a group of well endurance-trained young men (age range 20 - 30 year old, n=15) ● a group of sedentary young men (age range 20 - 30 year old, n=15). Subjects must meet the following inclusion criteria: 1. for athletes' groups: defined as more than 150 minutes of running activity per week; for young athletes at least 3 years and for master athletes at least 15 years history of running. 2. for groups less active than recommended: no history of regular physical activity training and no more practice than 150 minutes of moderate or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity per week. The standard inclusion criterion for every group will be body mass index (range 18.5-30 kg/m2). No experimental study has been published on the potential of life-long exercise to attenuate the aging-induced disorganization of the circadian system and thus to promote healthy aging. In this aspect, the proposed study is original and up-to-date. Moreover, also other aspects of the study, e.g. exercise and inflammaging or the risks (besides the benefits) of the long-life endurance training on bone tissue etc. have been studied only scarcely. Therefore, more scientific information is needed before it can be safely prescribed to the aging population
This study is investigating how Mim8 works compared to other medicines in people with haemophilia A, who either have inhibitors or do not have inhibitors. Mim8 is a new medicine that will be used for prevention of bleeding episodes. Mim8 works by replacing the function of the missing clotting factor VIII (FVIII). When and how often participants will receive Mim8 is dependent on their previous treatment - but is otherwise decided by chance. The study will last for 72-124 weeks (17-29 months) depending on how long participants will be followed before it is decided when they start receiving Mim8 - the period before this is decided is called the 'run-in'. Participants will have 13-17 clinic visits. Mim8 will be injected into a skinfold on the stomach with a thin needle either once a week or once a month.
This study will evaluate the prevalence of diastasis m. rectus abdominis after delivery. And relations between diastasis of m. rectus abdominis and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction in woman after delivery.
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of LY3502970 in participants with type 2 diabetes (T2D) who failed to achieve adequate glycemic control on diet and exercise alone or on a stable dose of metformin. This study will last about 30 weeks.
To compare visual outcomes, contrast sensitivity, glare occurrence, incidence of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) and subjective satisfaction in patients implanted with trifocal, accommodating and monofocal lens in long term period.
This study is conducted to see if ziltivekimab reduces the risk of having cardiovascular events (for example heart attack and stroke) in people with cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease and inflammation. Participants will either get ziltivekimab (active medicine) or placebo (a dummy medicine which has no effect on the body). This is known as the study medicine. Which treatment participants get is decided by chance. Participants chance of getting ziltivekimab or placebo is the same. Ziltivekimab is not yet approved in any country or region in the world. It is a new medicine doctors cannot prescribe. Participants will get the study medicine in a pre filled syringe. Participants will need to use the pre filled syringe to inject the study medicine into a skinfold once-monthly. The study is expected to last for up to 4 years. Participants will have up to 20 clinic visits. Participants will have blood and urine samples taken at most of the clinic visits. Participants will have their heart examined using sound waves (echocardiography) and electrodes (electrocardiogram). Women cannot take part if pregnant, breast-feeding or planning to get pregnant during the study period.
This is a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center sequential phase 2b and Phase 3 study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of AZD4831 administered for up to 48 Weeks in participants with heart failure with left ventricular ejection fraction > 40%. The study will consist of 2 separate parts, Part A and Part B, approximately 660 participants will be randomised in Part A, 825 in Part B.
The main purpose of this study is to learn more about the safety and tolerability of LY3361237 and any side effects that might be associated with it when given to participants with psoriasis. LY3361237 will be administered by injections just under the skin. The study will last up to 41 weeks and may include up to 15 visits to the study center.
AZD8233 is a PCSK9-targeted ASO for the reduction of circulating levels of LDL-C. This study aims to evaluate safety, efficacy and tolerability of AZD8233.
This is a follow-up study of a recently completed trial (17.14.INF) evaluating the growth of pre-term infants. Enrolled children will undergo neurocognitive assessments at 18- and 24-months of corrected age (CA).
