Active clinical trials for "Heart and Blood Diseases"
Community-based Complex Exercise for Stroke PatientsStrokeExercise
A lot of physical and social effects of exercise programs and daily physical education have already been proven for stroke patients after discharge. However, stroke patients have shown a passive attitude in participating in physical education or exercise programs for life, and the local community lacked appropriate guidelines or experience in guiding exercise and physical education for stroke patients, so they had a burden on instructing exercise. In this study, an appropriate complex exercise program was established for patients after discharge through analysis of domestic and foreign research data to provide an environment and opportunity to exercise in the community, and based on the results, stroke patients actively exercise in the community in the future. The goal is to provide a basis for doing so.
Safety and Efficacy Evaluation of the Robotic Enhanced Error Training of Upper Limb Function in...StrokeBrain Injuries4 more
Background: Cerebrovascular accident [CVA or commonly known as stroke] and traumatic brain injury (TBI) are common causes of morbidity, and motor impairments. Many stroke and TBI patients encounter severe functional impairments of their arm and/or hand. Recent studies have indicated that robotic training can improve upper limb function by enabling repetitive, adaptive, and intensive training. One type of robotic training is error enhancement during three-dimensional movements. The goal of this approach is to elicit better accuracy, stability, fluidity and range of motion during reaching. Previous research indicated the potential of robotic training with error enhancement as a viable clinical intervention for individuals facing motor deficits. Objectives: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a new robotic system based on error enhancement and intended for rehabilitation of motor hand functions of post-stroke and TBI patients. Methods: A randomized, multi-center study with an open-label design. The study sample will consist of 96 participants who will be randomized into 2 separate groups. The intervention group consisting of 48 patients will receive training with the new robotic system, while the control group consisting of additional 48 patients will receive only standard practice treatments (with no exposure to the new robotic system). The outcomes of safety (adverse events and treatment tolerability), and efficacy (motor function, speed, tone, and spasticity) will be assessed and compared between the two groups. The assessment of the outcomes will be conducted at four different time points: (1) prior to the initiation of the four-week intervention, (2) after 2 weeks of intervention, (3) at the conclusion of the intervention, and (4) at a three-month follow-up session.
Remote Ischemic Conditioning in Aneurysmal SAHSubarachnoid HemorrhageAneurysmal1 more
The goal of this clinical trial is to examine the effect of limb occlusion therapy (remote ischemic conditioning, RIC) in subjects with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. The main question it aims to answer is whether RIC can improve long-term recovery in participants with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. Researchers will compare levels of functional independence in participants in the RIC-group to participants in the sham-group.
Efficacy and Safety of SBRT Combined With Cardonilizumab and Lenvastinib in the Treatment of Unresectable...Hepatocellular Carcinoma Non-resectablePortal Vein Tumor Thrombus1 more
This study is a single-arm, multicenter clinical study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of SBRT combined with cardonilizumab and lenvastinib in the treatment of unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma with portal vein tumor thrombus
Evaluation of the Effect of Liposomal L-Arg and Vit C Integration on Mitochondrial Function in Patients...Heart Failure
Pilot study to assess the effect of L-Arg and Vit C liposomal supplementation on mitochondrial function in patients with heart failure, through analysis of the viability of mitochondria isolated from peripheral blood of mononucleate cells (PBMC).
Stroke and CPAP Outcome Study 3Ischemic StrokeIntra Cerebral Hemorrhage4 more
A problem with breathing during sleep, called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), likely increases the risk of stroke and is common in people who have had a stroke, present in about 2/3 of stroke survivors. There is also evidence that OSA predicts worse outcome after stroke. The question being addressed in the Stroke and CPAP Outcome Study 3 (SCOUTS3) is how to improve use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy to treat OSA when started during intensive stroke rehabilitation.
Protocol to Support Breastfeeding for Postpartum Women and Mothers of Babies With Congenital Heart...BreastfeedingCongenital Heart Disease
To evaluate the effect of applying a hybrid protocol (face-to-face and via call center) of breastfeeding assistance and guidance on the duration of breast milk supply to babies with congenital heart disease for 6 months.
A Randomised Control Trial of Power Versus Temperature-controlled Irrigated Radiofrequency Ablation...Ventricular Tachycardia
Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) is a life threatening heart rhythm that comes from the bottom chambers of the heart (the ventricles) and is a leading cause of sudden cardiac death. The majority of patients that are at risk of VT or suffer a cardiac arrest will have an Internal Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD) in situ to treat the abnormal heart rhythm. The ICD can deliver a painful shock to restore normal heart rhythm but importantly does not treat the underlying cause. Current treatment for the prevention of recurrent VT include catheter ablation (CA) or medication. Long-term results with global 12 month VT-free survival rates with CA are around 50%. The trial is to compare 2 different types of ablation catheter that are used to cauterise small areas of unhealthy tissue within the heart that are responsible for VT: Diamond Temp (DT) and Tacticath/Tactiflex (TF). Our hypothesis is that the DT ablation catheter will provide comparable efficacy and safety for the treatment of VT as the current industry gold standard (TF).
A Study to Investigate the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of DFV890 for Inflammatory Marker...Coronary Heart Disease
This Phase 2a clinical trial will evaluate the effectiveness, safety, and tolerability of increasing dose strengths of an oral daily medication, DFV890, administered for 12 weeks, to reduce key markers of inflammation related to CVD risk, such as IL-6 and IL-18, in approximately 24 people with known heart disease and an elevated marker of inflammation, hsCRP.
Mezigdomide (CC-92480) Post Idecabtagene Vicleucel in Treating Patients With Relapsed Multiple Myeloma...Multiple Myeloma
This phase I trial studies the safety, side effects, best dose and effectiveness of mezigdomide (CC-92480) when given after idecabtagene vicleucel (Abecma chimeric antigen receptor [CAR] T-cell therapy) in patients with multiple myeloma that has come back after a period of improvement (relapsed). CC-92480 works by binding to a protein called CRBN that triggers the breakdown of proteins: Ikaros and Aiolos, leading to cell death in multiple myeloma cells. Giving mezigdomide after Abecma CAR T cell therapy may extending the amount of time that the CAR T cells persist in the body in patients with relapsed multiple myeloma.
