Drug Clinical Trials
Hundreds of drugs that have been prescribed for children may not be safe or effective for pediatric use or may require different doses than currently suggested, but some of this information may not be reaching the medical community.
The most immediate application of this technology is in clinical trials.
Five Spanish Hospitals start international phase III clinical trial with H5N1 influenza pandemic vaccine.
Researchers have unraveled the structure of an important new drug target from the virus that causes SARS, severe acute respiratory syndrome.
People with no disability should probably not enter into a clinical trial or be recruited into clinical trials, because where is the potential benefit to them if nothing is wrong.
Bayesian approach is better for doctors, patients who participate in clinical trials and for patients who are waiting for new treatments to become available.
Physicians reported not using proper techniques when collecting urine samples for drug tests on adolescents and were often unaware of the tests' limitations.
Computer controlled simulated patients can improve the design of clinical trials before any real patients are even enrolled.
A new drug, edifoligide, designed to prevent the clogging of veins used in coronary bypass surgery was no more effective than a placebo.
The results of a new Phase III clinical trial have demonstrated that a new class of drugs, called "NK 1 receptor antagonists," is more effective at reducing vomiting after surgery.
Antipsychotic drug trials asses the evidence for death associated with their use in elderly patients with dementia.
A vaccine to protect adults and adolescents against illness due to Bordetella pertussis infection, or whooping cough, has proved more than 90 percent effective.
The sample of people on the study is not fully representative and provides biased estimates of safety and tolerability which drug companies can sometimes use in their marketing promotions.
Scientists have begun to clarify how one of the body's molecules controls the trafficking of T cells through the blood, lymph nodes and on to tissues to fight infection.
A new drug is not a suitable replacement for protamine, a drug that has been used for more than 40 years after coronary artery bypass surgery to return thinned blood to its normal state.
Efficacy of the vaccine was determined by continuous abstinence from smoking between week 8 and 24 after treatment start and was measured by self-reporting of the participating smokers.
Cytos Biotechnology AG (SWX:CYTN) announced today that its vaccine candidate CYT002-NicQb to treat nicotine addiction has achieved proof of efficacy. The phase II clinical trial results were presented by Prof. Dr. Jacques Cornuz (CHUV Lausanne), principal investigator, at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Orlando, USA, on behalf of the three Swiss study centres.
The drugs aspirin and clopidogrel, which reduce the formation of blood clots, work better together than aspirin alone at reducing microembolic signals detected by transcranial Doppler.
Researchers have shown that four new and experimental drugs can strongly inhibit the growth of deadly brain tumors in animals.
Clinical trials play a vital role in improving medical care. The technology that is being assessed may be a diagnostic tool, a drug, a device or a behavioral intervention to improve human health.
Doctors theorize that keloid scars are the result of an overly active healing process: after a wound has occurred to the skin, both skin cells and fibroblasts (connective tissue cells) begin multiplying to repair the damage.
Physicians at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine are beginning a research study to determine if a new medication can lower blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes.
The largest prospective trial ever examining the anti-inflammatory drug Vioxx as a chemoprevention agent found that the risk of developing a cardiovascular "event," heart attacks and/or strokes, was almost double in patients who received the drug.
Patients given a class of anti inflammatory drugs before and after minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery experienced less pain with fewer postoperative complications and an earlier return to normal activities.
A new and experimental breast cancer drug called lapatinib inhibited tumor growth in nearly half of women who took it for eight weeks in a national Phase I clinical trial.
Findings could ultimately lead to improved drugs to prevent or treat Salmonella infections.
