There are about 10259 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.
This study adopted an experimental research design to explore the effects of a warm water foot bath program on fatigue, sleep, and heart rate variability in patients with heart failure. The subjects of the study were heart failure patients in the cardiology outpatient department. The patients were randomly assigned to the experimental group and the control group. The control group received routine care and wore an actigraph. The experimental group received 4 additional care in addition to routine care and wearing an actigraph. Weekly warm water foot bath, data collection includes subjective sleep quality and fatigue level, physiological measurements: sleep quality-sleep time and efficiency, and heart rate variability index.
Research Questions: 1. Due to the fact that most participants in past clinical trials on the Mediterranean diet were cognitively healthy individuals, and while the observed effects were significant, they were not particularly substantial, does the Mediterranean diet have similarly significant and more pronounced effects on both physical and cognitive functions in older adults with subjective cognitive decline (SCD)? 2. What is the mechanism behind the effects of the Mediterranean diet on physical or/and cognitive function? Is it through vascular protection or improvements in brain structure/brain network function? Research Objective: Conduct a cross-over randomized controlled trial to investigate the effects of a three-month Mediterranean diet on the physical and cognitive functions of older adults with subjective cognitive decline (SCD) in the community. Utilize brain MRI and circulatory biomarkers measurements to elucidate the underlying mechanisms.
The aim of this study is to investigate whether there are the additive effects when implementing both high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and probiotics simultaneously on improving cardiorespiratory endurance and metabolism in middle-aged women.
Introduction: WHO defines youth as 15-24 years age group. At this stage, the brain is still under development, with high impulsiveness, being fond of stimulation and yearning for peer life. Compared with traditional interpersonal interaction, modern youths use the Internet as a main interpersonal interaction platform and conduct lots of leisure activities on the Internet. Poor cognitive emotion regulation strategies and personal traits may extend to new types of mental health issues; and are associated with depression, anxiety, suicidal/self-injurious behaviors, and cyberbullying. Objectives: (1) To investigate whether emotion regulation strategies while facing stressful events are highly related to with cyberbullying, social media, and internet gaming disorder. (2) To investigate the relation between cyberbullying and depression, anxiety, suicide/self-injury among Taiwanese youths. (3) To investigate the probability of cyberbullying, social media addiction, and internet gaming disorder occurring at the same time. Method: This cross-sectional study recruits cases of youths from 15 to 24 years old and collects data through questionnaires survey. In addition to collection of basic data, Internet using habits, and medical history, self-rated questionnaires include Suicide/Self-Injury Ideation Questionnaire, The Beck Depression Inventory 2nd Edition, Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children-Taiwan version, Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire, Cyberbullying Questionnaire, and Internet Gaming Disorder Scale-Short Form.
The goal of this interventional study is to compare investigate the short-term and long-term effects of 8-week real-time telehealth-based diaphragmatic breathing exercise and pelvic stabilization exercise on pain, disability, and quality of life in postpartum women with pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain.
This study aims to assess the efficacy of intraoperative wound irrigation with iodine-containing and chlorhexidine-containing solutions in reducing bacterial colonization during spine surgery, and to determine which solution is more effective. Additionally, we aim to evaluate any side effects associated with the use of these two antiseptic solutions for wound irrigation.
This study will evaluate the effect of triple ICS/LAMA/LABA therapy with BGF MDI 320/14.4/9.6 μg on cardiopulmonary outcomes relative to LAMA/LABA therapy with GFF MDI 14.4/9.6 μg in a population with COPD and elevated cardiopulmonary risk.
This is a non-interventional study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Saxenda® in obese adults and adolescents in Taiwan. The participants will recieve Saxenda® treatment which is a medicine that doctors can already prescribe. The study will last for about 26 weeks.
The purpose of this study is to learn about lorlatinib for the possible treatment of lung cancer which could not be controlled. This study is seeking participants who: - have lung cancer that could not be controlled. - have a type of gene called anaplastic lymphoma kinase. A gene is a part of your DNA that has instructions for making things your body needs to work. - have received at least 1 treatment before. All participants in this study had received lorlatinib. Lorlatinib is a tablet that is taken by mouth at home. They continued to take dacomitinib until their cancer was no longer responding. The study will look at the experiences of people receiving the study medicine. This will help to see if the study medicine is safe and effective.
