There are about 2484 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Argentina. 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.
Cardiovascular risk factors and disease burden has been showed to affect more deeply to poorer populations. People who live in slums are the most vulnerable subgroup in the populations where, paradoxically scarcity of data exists on risk factors and cardiovascular disease burden. Our study aim to describe the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors and cardiovascular disease burden in a representative sample of an urban slum of Buenos Aires city, using validated questions from the National Risk Factors Survey (edition 2013). Also, the investigators will measure blood pressure and cardiac rate to all study participants.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of baricitinib in combination with topical corticosteroids (TCS) in participants with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis.
Coughing during tracheal extubation can be associated to adverse effects like tachycardia, arterial hypertension (AHT), increase of intracranial pressure (ICP) and intraocular pressure (IOP), and the dehiscence of surgical wounds. In ophthalmic, head and neck, and abdominal surgery, and in several other neurosurgical interventions it is vital to prevent these effects. The incidence of laryngeal irritation due to orotracheal intubation hinders patient comfort in the immediate postoperative (POP) period and no pharmacological intervention has been yet proven to prevent it. At the end of the surgical procedure, the depth of the anesthetic plane decreases with the concomitant suspension of the anesthetic agents. However, the patient still requires ventilatory support through the endotracheal tube (EDT). The physical stimulation of the trachea created by this foreign body leads to the activation of the sympathetic nervous system, expressed in AHT, tachycardia, and ICP. To tolerate the EDT and prevent these effects, different maneuvers have been tested such as extubating the patient in a deep anesthetic plane or administering intravenous (IV) narcotics with the entailed complications: airway (AW) obstruction and hypercapnia, and the aspiration of an unprotected AW. Progress has been made with the introduction of ultrashort acting opioids, with significant statistical results. Moreover, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors and dexmedetomidine have been used to decrease the hemodynamic impact associated to tracheal extubation. The use of both IV and intratracheal lidocaine in doses ranging from 1 mg/kg to 3 mg/kg, has been studied with controversial results. In view of the above, and as lidocaine is the most commonly used low-cost drug in all operating rooms with a good safety profile when used at low doses, the purpose of this study is twofold: to assess its effects at reducing coughing and to evaluate its hemodynamic impact when administering IV 1 mg/kg prior to extubation. Then, the efficiency of reducing the incidence of sore throats after the immediate POP shall be investigated.
The purpose of the trial is to assess the efficacy and safety of tirzepatide taken once a week to insulin glargine taken once daily in participants with type 2 diabetes and increased cardiovascular risk. The study will last about 108 weeks and may include up to 30 visits.
Evaluate molecular testing and treatment patterns for EGFR mutation in two different cohorts of stage IV NSCLC, at diagnosis (treatment naïve) and at the moment of progression to EGFR-TKIs. This study is non-indication seeking (NIS), descriptive in nature and does not attempt to test any specific a priori hypotheses.
The primary objective of the current study is to investigate the bioequivalence of a newly developed 120 mg nifurtimox tablet formulation (Test treatment) compared with the 120 mg nifurtimox tablet currently used in the Bayer pediatric clinical development program (Reference treatment). The new tablet formulation assessed in this study is intended to replace the 120 mg nifurtimox tablet formulation currently used in clinical practice. It is an immediate-release tablet with an altered composition compared to the reference formulation. The new tablet overcomes pharmaceutical quality issues seen for the current formulation, e.g. sensitivity to humidity. Due to safety reasons, the study drug will be administered under fed conditions to adult male and female patients suffering from Chagas' disease and not healthy subjects (see also Benefit-risk assessment below). In addition, the PK, safety, and tolerability of nifurtimox will be assessed as secondary objectives.
The Percutaneous Microelectrolysis ® (MEP®) is a technique that employs a galvanic current up to 990 uA, which is applied percutaneously with an acupuncture needle connected to the cathode. Although it is used in tendinopathies, trigger points and muscle injuries, among other conditions, its bases are mostly empirical and there is lack of evidence. Ischemic compression is a manual therapy that is usually applied in muscle pain. Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) usually presents painful myofascial trigger points (MTrPs). One methodology used to quantify the pain in MPS is the algometry, which measures the pressure pain threshold (PPT). The aim of this study was to compare the effects of MEP® with ischemic compression on MTrPs with algometry.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of relatlimab plus nivolumab, alone or in combination with various standard-of-care treatments in participants with gastric cancer (GC) or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma that has come back or spread to other places in the body after prior therapy.
Morbid obese patients present changes in respiratory physiology caused by weight overload. Intraoperative atelectasis is a pulmonary complication that affects not only gas exchange but also respiratory mechanics. The present study was aimed to test the role of different parameters for monitoring the treatment of atelectasis by a lung recruitment maneuver.
Study MO39939 is an open-label, single-arm, multicenter trial in patients with unresectable, locally-advanced or metastatic, clear or non-clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who have not received prior systemic therapy (who are treatment naïve in either the [neo]adjuvant or advanced/metastatic setting for clear and non-clear cell RCC). The study consists of a Screening Period, a Treatment Period, an End of Treatment Visit occurring approximately 30 days after the last dose of study medication, and a Follow-Up Period of 4 years after last patient enrolled.
