Active
clinical trials

Allergology and immunology

Allergology and immunology deal with the study of allergic reactions and immune disorders. Allergists diagnose and treat allergic diseases such as hay fever, asthma, allergic dermatitis and food allergies. Immunologists monitor the immune system and treat autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, and provide support for patients with weakened immune systems.

Cardiology and angiology

Cardiology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the heart and circulatory system, while angiology studies blood vessels. Cardiologists treat conditions such as coronary heart disease, arrhythmias, heart failure and monitor the general health of the heart. Angiologists deal with vascular diseases such as varicose veins, thrombosis and atherosclerosis and provide therapy to improve blood circulation.

Dermatology

Dermatology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair and nail problems. Dermatologists treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, skin tumors and infections. They also provide prevention and protection against skin problems and help patients maintain healthy skin.

Endocrinology, diabetes and metabolic diseases

Endocrinology deals with hormonal disorders, and diabetology specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes. Endocrinologists monitor conditions such as disorders of the thyroid gland, adrenal glands and hormonal imbalance. Diabetologists are dedicated to controlling type 1 and 2 diabetes, monitoring blood sugar regulation and helping to prevent complications.

Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive system. Gastroenterologists treat conditions such as gastritis, peptic ulcer, Crohn's disease, colitis and liver cirrhosis. They provide therapy, dietary guidance and monitoring to maintain a healthy digestive system.

Nephrology

Nephrology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of kidney and urinary system diseases. Nephrologists monitor conditions such as chronic kidney disease, kidney stones, hypertension and kidney failure. These specialists provide therapy and advice to maintain optimal kidney function and urinary tract health.

Neurology

Neurology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. Neurologists treat conditions such as migraines, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and neuropathies. Their goal is to preserve the health of the brain and nerves and improve the quality of life of patients.

Pulmonology

Pulmonology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the respiratory system. Pulmonologists treat conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung infections, and respiratory allergies. Their purpose is to improve lung function and make it easier for patients to breathe.

Advantages of clinical research

No special preparation is required for the first interview. Make sure you bring your complete medical documentation. The study doctor will answer all your questions during the first interview, so it is a good idea to write down everything that is not clear. If necessary, the patient can bring a trusted person with him/her for support.

Yes, the patient may choose to leave the study at any time. It is only necessary to inform the leading study physician, who will record the reason for the patient’s withdrawal from the study.

Each study is based on a protocol which covers the clinical study plan in detail. The protocol is carefully designed to ensure the safety of participants (patients) and the relevance of the final results. The protocol defines, among other things, what characteristics a patient must have in order to be included in a particular clinical study, the schedule of diagnostic tests, procedures related to the administration of study drug(s) and drug doses, and the duration of the study. In accordance to the protocol, patients regularly undergo clinical examinations by a competent physician to monitor their health status and determine the safety and efficacy of the study drug used.

Many studies are conducted in such a way that one group of patients receives a new experimental drug or other inovative treatment, while the other group receives the standard treatment or placebo. The latter group is referred to as the control group and is used to compare the results of the study drug with the current standard.

Clinical trials are conducted in phases. The preclinical phase of testing is the initial stage when in vitro (in laboratory) studies and in vivo (on animals) studies are performed. This is followed by the clinical phase of the trial, which can be divided into four segments:

Phase 1. Researchers are testing a new drug on a small group of healthy individuals (20-80) to analyze the safety of drug administration for the first time, in order to determine the safe dose of the drug and identify possible side effects.

Phase 2. The study drug is administered to a slightly larger group of patients (100-300) to analyze the efficacy of the drug and to continue monitoring of side effects.

Phase 3. The study drug is administered to a large group of patients (1000-3000) to confirm efficacy, monitor side effects, compare the effect of the new drug versus standard therapy, and to gather data that allows the drug to be safely administered.

Phase 4. These are so called post-marketing studies, which gather additional information of the risks and benefits of the drug and determine the optimal use of the drug.
