chlorhexidine Clinical Trials

Comparison of Surgical Skin Preps During Cesarean Deliveries
In women that undergo non-emergency cesarean delivery, we are comparing the skin preparation solutions for best outcome of surgical site infection. The three different solutions are: Group 1: Iodine povidone based skin preparation solution. Group 2: Chlorhexidine based skin [more...]  preparation solution or Group 3: Combination usage of iodine povidone and chlorhexidine based skin preparation solutions. Women are prospectively randomized to one of the three groups and followed until thier postpartum visit at 6-8 weeks following delivery.
Status: Recruiting Start Date: February 2013 Completion Date: July 2014
Prevention of Perinatal Sepsis (PoPS): Evaluation of Chlorhexidine Wipes of Birth Canal and Newborn
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether use of the disinfectant chlorhexidine administered to the birth canal during labour and newborn at delivery can protect a woman and her baby from bacterial infections after birth. If effective, this could be used as [more...]  an inexpensive alternative to antibiotics to prevent newborn infections in resource-poor countries.
Status: Recruiting Start Date: April 2004 Completion Date: November 2007
Efficacy of a Mouthwash Containing Propolis
Characterization of green propolis and development of mouthwash containing propolis to control plaque and gingivitis. A Phase I.
Status: Not yet recruiting Start Date: February 2013 Completion Date: July 2016
Topical Umbilical Cord Care for the Prevention of Colonization and Invasive Infections
Umbilical catheters are necessary for many infants admitted to the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU)and utilized when indicated for up to 7 to 14 days. Bacterial colonization can occur at the umbilical stump and potentially lead to serious bloodstream infections (BSIs). [more...]  This study is a prospective, randomized controlled feasibility trial to evaluate three types of hygiene products on umbilical line stumps, on the effect of line colonization and subsequent infections. Infants admitted to the NICU with an umbilical line(s) will be randomized into one of four study groups, three products against standard of care (no product). The three products that will be evaluated are currently being used in different capacities for skin care in the UVA NICU. The study hypothesizes that daily topical application of 1 or more antiseptic to the top of the umbilical stump will decrease colonization of the umbilical stump while umbilical lines are in place.

Chlorhexidine & Pneumonia in Nursing Home Residents
The purpose of this study is determine if topical oral application of a chlorhexidine antimicrobial spray will significantly reduce pneumonia and respiratory infections, and improve oral health compared to a placebo solution in nursing home residents.
Status: Active, not recruiting Start Date: January 2006 Completion Date: December 2009
Effect of Chlorhexidine Skin Cleansing on Skin Flora
Given the potential of skin cleansing with chlorhexidine as a safe, feasible, and cost-effective intervention for reducing neonatal death in developing country settings, this study follows a trial already underway in Nepal to test the impact of a single cleansing of [more...]  the skin with baby wipes cotaining chlorahexidine.
Status: Active, not recruiting Start Date: March 2004 Completion Date: March 2005
Efficacy of Two Commercially Available Chlorhexidine Mouthrinses Non-alcohol Base
The purpose of this study was to compare the antiplaque efficacy of a 0,12% chlorhexidine and 0,05% cetyl-pyridinium chloride mouth rinse (Perio-aid®) with a 0,2% chlorhexidine non-alcohol base mouth rinse (Corsodyl Care®).
Status: Completed Start Date: October 2011 Completion Date: March 2012
Hexetidine and Chlorobutanol for Lesions Due to Prostheses
Objectives: The study aimed at assessing the efficacy of a new mouthwash in treating oral lesions due to removable prostheses. Methods: The present prospective randomized clinical trial was performed on 44 patients. The experimentation lasted for 4 weeks and [more...]  4 operators participated. The effects of the mouthwash were evaluated subjectively and objectively, with questionnaires, Visual Analogic Scales and clinical examinations. The results were statistically analyzed. The following variables were recorded: presence of mucosal lesions due to incongruous removable prostheses and lasting of pain after rinsing.
Status: Completed Start Date: February 2010 Completion Date: March 2010
The Efficacy and Safety of Flurbiprofen Chip Versus Chlorhexidine Chip (Periochip®) in Therapy of Adult Chronic Periodontitis
The purpose of the study is to assess efficacy and safety of Flurbiprofen Chip versus Chlorhexidine chip (Periochip®) in therapy of adult chronic periodontitis.
Status: Completed Start Date: August 2009 Completion Date: June 2010
The Effects of Pistacia Mutica on De Novo Dental Plaque Formation, Gingival Inflammation and Oral Microorganisms
Dental plaque is a well known etiologic factor for gingivitis. Recently, herbal extracts are a matter of scientific interest to inhibit plaque accumulation on teeth. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of pistacia Mutica (PM) mouth wash on de [more...]  novo dental plaque plaque formation, gingival inflammation indices and oral microorganisms.
Status: Completed Start Date: May 2008 Completion Date: May 2009
Safety of Skin Cleansing With Chlorhexidine in Preterm Low Birth Weight Infants
The purpose of this study is to examine if single skin cleansing with 0.25% chlorhexidine affects skin condition, temperature, and bacterial colonization in stable preterm (28-36 weeks gestational age) low birth weight (1001-2000 g) infants admitted in a health facility.
Status: Completed Start Date: August 2005 Completion Date: February 2006
Chlorhexidine Versus Povidone-Iodine for Prevention of Epidural Needle Contamination in the Parturient
Infection after epidural catheter placement is fortunately rare. When it does happen, the affected person can become seriously ill. This study examines which skin disinfectant, chlorhexidine or povidone-iodine, decreases the number of bacteria that can be grown from [more...]  the skin washed with each disinfectant prior to placing an epidural catheter for pain control in labour.
Status: Completed Start Date: November 2004 Completion Date: January 2008

 

Clinical trials allow volunteers access to medical treatment options before they are available to the general public. Participants often receive the best healthcare available for their condition.

Risks are a reality, however, and may include more frequent doctor visits, health risks (possibly life-threatening), and/or the treatment being ineffective. Trials are federally regulated with strict guidelines to protect participants.

chlorhexidine Clinical Trials Information presented on ClinicalTrialsSearch.org is not intended to be a substitute for qualified medical advice visit or treatment with a real physician. We are not physicians. Always consult with a medical doctor (MD). ClinicalTrialsSearch.org is a website dedicated to listing clinical research studies in human subjects, including those specifically related to chlorhexidine. Clinical research trials and medical trials take place in hundreds of cities across the United States. A clinical trial or clinical study is a research project with human volunteer subjects. Clinical drug trials and pharmaceutical clinical trials generally measure the effectiveness of new treatments and drugs. The purpose of the studies is to answer specific human health questions. Clinical trials are a popular way for doctors, government agencies, and private sector companies to find treatments for all kinds of conditions. Clinical trials allow volunteers access to medical treatment options before they are available to the general public. Many times the participants receive treatment for free, and sometimes they are paid for their time. Participants often receive the best healthcare available possible for their condition. Risks are a reality, however, and may include more frequent doctor visits, health risks (possibly life-threatening), and/or the treatment being ineffective. U.S. - based chlorhexidine studies are federally regulated with strict guidelines to protect patients.
