There are about 9215 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Taiwan. 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.
1.Written informed consent must be obtained before any study specific procedures are undertaken.Qualified participants were identified at the pre-anesthesia evaluation clinic or ward. 2.80 patients with American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) score of I-II in our medical center scheduled to undergo elective surgery for hypertrophy of labia minor with MAC. Patients were randomized 1:1 into the Group 1 (normal saline) or Group 2 (lidocaine 1.5 mg/kg/hr, ideal body weight) by using a table of random, computer-generated digits in sealed and numbered envelopes by an anesthesiologist. All surgical procedure was performed by the same surgeon and the anesthetic data was recorded by a nurse anesthetist. All patients were fasted overnight before the procedure, and no medications were allowed before induction of anesthesia. Standard monitoring, such as non-invasive arterial blood pressure, electrocardiography (lead II), pulse oximetry, end-tidal carbon dioxide pressure (EtCO2) was applied for each patient. Participants were pre-oxygenated and adequately maintained with 100% oxygen at 3 L/min via a nasal cannula during the entire procedure. During anesthesia induction, all patients received intravenous fentanyl 0.1 mcg/kg, continuous infusion of propofol with target-controlled infusion (TCI; Fresenius Orchestra Primea; Fresenius Kabi AG, Bad Homburg, Germany) with the Ce of 4.0 mcg/mL and parecoxib. In addition, continuous infusion of equal volume normal saline and lidocaine 1.5 mg/kg/hr (ideal body weight) in group I and 2, respectively. In all patients, maintenance of the Ce of propofol was adjusted upward or downward by 0.5 mcg/mL to keep patient adequate sedation with acceptable pain (remaining moveless). If upward 2 times of propofol and the patient still move which affect the surgical procedure, fentanyl 0.05 mcg/kg was prescribed, and mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR) within baseline levels. As soon as the last suture, the propofol and lidocaine were discontinued. After the procedure, all patients were sent to the PACU for further care under clear consciousness.
This is a Phase II, open-label, multi-drug, multi-centre study designed to assess the efficacy, safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and immunogenicity of novel combination therapies in participants with locally advanced unresectable or metastatic gastric or GEJ adenocarcinoma.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether milvexian compared to placebo reduce the risk of recurrent ischemic stroke.
Alimentary tract cancer patients treated at National Cheng Kung University Hospital during 2013/01/01 to 2020/12/31 were reviewed.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy between dienogest and danazol.
Currently, orthodontic treatment takes 2-3 years.. If we accelerate tooth movement by low energy laser therapy, we could reduce treatment time. Low Level Laser Therapy(LLLT) applied in Orthodontic Tooth Movement, which stimulates formation of osteoclast-like cells expression in vitro. Osteoclast can be served as an index for tooth movement. Increasing the number of osteoclast will increase bone formation and tooth movement. We plan to find a useful clinical protocol to improve the efficiency of orthodontic tooth movement. Test low energy laser in vitro. Find an effective wavelength and irradiation time to stimulate formation of osteoclast. Develop an useful protocol that clinical orthodontist could follow and reduce orthodontic treatment time.
Sleep disturbances are one of the most frequent complaints brought to the healthcare professionals during routine prenatal care visits.The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate a Sleep Training and Education Program (STEP) for improving sleep and health in women during pregnancy.
This study is aimed at women's pelvic floor muscles, especially urinary incontinence caused by pelvic floor muscle relaxation or pelvic prolapse, to observe whether the use of (HIFEM) high-intensity focused magnetic energy chairs can help the pelvic floor muscles after this treatment Strengthening to improve the symptoms of urinary incontinence caused by the compression of the sacral nerve plexus caused by the downward movement of the uterus, thereby improving the social life and quality of life of the patient.
The study investigates the dietary habits in relation to low doses of omega-3 fatty acids in subcutaneous adipose tissue, disease activity and atherosclerosis. The low intake of omega-3 and high intake of carbohydrate among patients with SLE appear to be associated with worse disease activity, adverse serum lipids and plaque presence.Three-month-old mice received an injection of pristane or saline solution and were fed with different experimental diets: sunflower oil diet or extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) diet. After 24 weeks, mice were sacrificed, spleens were collected and kidneys were removed for immunoinflammatory detections. The study have demonstrated that EVOO diet significantly reduced renal damage and decreased cytokine: TNF-α, IL-6, IL-10 and IL-17 production.The ketogenic diet utilizes a high fat, adequate protein, low carbohydrate diet that control type of food and exchange. The aim of the present study that ketogenic diet treated in SLE patients may decrease overactive immunity and associated inflammatory markers.
To investigate the effects of pedal degree on the biomechanical characteristics of the healthy adults' lower limbs during stepping on the pinnacle trainer.The purpose of this study are compare the biomechanical characteristics of low limbs at different angle of pedal during stepping on Pinnacle trainer. The investigators hope to provide this outcome to therapists can make the rehabilitation training more effective and delay the disease progression of KOA patients.
