There are about 7604 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.
The study purposes are to compare the effects of different combinations of sensory interventions on newborns' pain responses, physiological distress (heart rate and oxygen saturation), and crying event during heel stick procedures.
Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the top three most common cancers in Taiwan. Targetable driver mutations in NSCLC are more prevalent in Asian population compared to those in Western population, which offers chances to apply suitable targeted therapies worldwide. For patients who failed to the treatment of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), the genetic mutations from next-generation sequencing (NGS) reports can serve as the reference of treatment selection. Moreover, the expression of PD-1/PD-L1 serves as a helpful indicator for the response of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs). On the other hand, patients with wild-type EGFR/ALK mutations and PD-L1-negative NSCLC who received chemotherapy had relative poorer survival than those received suitable targeted therapies and ICIs. To further elucidate the underlying molecular genomic aberrations, as well as the clinical demographics and therapeutic outcomes in above subpopulations, it is necessary to have a national, multi-centers and population-focused research project to collect data completely. Tumor tissue will be collected from advanced NSCLC patients with wild-type EGFR/ALK or EGFR/ALK mutation after resistant to TKIs for real-time next-generation sequencing analysis in a platform of data storage and sharing. The purpose of the precision medicine project is to establish tumor molecular profiling of specific NSCLC populations in Taiwan, to facilitate patients to have corresponding potential targeted therapeutics and suitable clinical trials, and to extend the median overall survival.
This is a post-market clinical follow-up study that use questionnaires such as Visual Analog Scale (VAS), the Neck Disability Index (NDI), or the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) to compare the clinical improvement effects before and after surgery.
The main purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of Tirzepatide (LY3298176) in participants with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and obesity.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of Sodium Zirconium Cyclosilicate (SZC) on arrhythmia-related cardiovascular outcomes in participants on chronic hemodialysis with recurrent hyperkalemia.
ABSTRACT Background: Pulse diagnosis is a core clinical technique used in Chinese medicine to establish a patient's physiologic or pathologic status. Methods: We performed non--invasive recording of the radial arterial pulses for 36 pregnant women, and then compared the harmonics of the radial arterial pulse after Fourier transformation with those of 50 healthy nonpregnant women (controls).
This is an open-label Phase 1 study to determine the feasibility, safety, and the recommended maximum tolerated Dose (MTD) of a single infusion of RPM CD19 mbIL15 CAR-T cells for adult patients. Approximately 24 subjects will be enrolled and it is anticipated approximately 16 subjects will be infused at the varied doses of T cells.
This investigator-initiated, prospective, single center, randomized, controlled clinical trial enrolled patients with stable Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease stage II-IV chronic obstruction pulmonary disease. The primary outcome was 2-year acute exacerbation rates.
The sit-to-stand and dynamic weight-shifting ability of stroke patients is highly associated with walking performance. Therefore, in order to improve the dynamic weight-shifting ability in sit-to-stand and parallel or tandem standing, a real-time visual or auditory feedback is used in our design to allow patients to realize the weight-bearing condition (by using load cells) in both sound and affected legs immediately. It can help patients to learn to control muscle to shift weight effectively which will improve patients' walking performance. By integrating physical therapy planning with electro-mechanical technology, the goal of this study is to develop a standing balance training system by requiring patients to control their center of pressure (COP) in performing sit-to-stand and maintain a standing posture via the use of their core and lower extremity musculature.
