There are about 2390 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.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of ustekinumab in participants with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who have not adequately responded to one or more standard of care treatments.
This is a study of pembrolizumab (MK-3475, KEYTRUDA®) in combination with lenvatinib (E7080) versus treatment of physician's choice (doxorubicin or paclitaxel) for the treatment of advanced endometrial cancer. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either pembrolizumab and lenvatinib or treatment of physician's choice. The primary study hypothesis is that pembrolizumab in combination with lenvatinib prolongs progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) when compared to treatment of physician's choice.
The purpose of this study is to determine in hospitalized adult participants infected with human metapneumovirus (hMPV - a virus closely related to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and has been identified as an important cause of acute respiratory infections, affecting all age groups) the dose-response relationship of multiple regimens of lumicitabine on antiviral activity based on nasal hMPV shedding using quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) assay.
This trial proposes a therapy for pediatric Hodgkin lymphoma with the objective of achieving high levels of long lasting complete remission with less risk of late effects. Patients of both genders, between 2 and 18 years, with newly diagnosed classical Hodgkin lymphoma are admitted. Initial staging provides stratification in three groups: low, intermediate and high risk. An initial set of two chemotherapy courses is administered to all cases after which a new disease assessment is performed. According to disease response a final therapy group is assigned. Rapid early responders benefit from less chemotherapy. At the end of chemotherapy, radiotherapy is delivered only to patients who do not achieve a complete response. Thus therapy is tailored to initial extension and disease responsiveness. Complete responders at the end of chemotherapy do not receive radiotherapy. Those who are in partial remission receive low dose (30Gy) involved node radiotherapy. Stable or progressive disease at any moment is assumed as a trial failure and new therapeutic strategies are offered to patients off protocol. Chemotherapy is based upon regimes with well known effectiveness in Hodgkin lymphoma. (i.e. ABVD: doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine and dacarbazine and ESHAP: Etoposide, methyl prednisolone, citarabine and cisplatin). The schedules are delivered with low cumulative drug doses and avoiding the use of toxic alkylating agents. Risks of secondary leukemia and infertility are thus minimized. Doxorubicin and bleomycin do not achieve cumulative doses that may expose to significant risk of heart or lung damage. Radiotherapy reduction avoids late radiation sequels. This clinical study proposes a therapeutic approach based on chemotherapy that do not sum up high cumulative toxic doses. Therapy is tailored according to initial risk assessment and disease responsiveness. Those who achieve a complete response to chemotherapy do not receive additional radiotherapy, thus avoiding further late effects.
Since 2006 there was a plateau in world wide mortality from asthma. Overreliance in Short Acting Beta2 Agonists (SABA) was associated with increased risk of death from asthma. Long acting beta agonists (LABA) alone was not permitted as treatment for asthma as it was determined by FDA by the "black box". By contrast SABA does not have a "black box", despite similar overuse alerts associated with increased risk of death from asthma. the investigators want to know if exist asthmatic subjects that do use another rescue medication; not SABA, and to compare their features, Asthma Control Test (ACT), and lung function in a outpatient facility. First consecutive visits at outpatient Pulmonary Section of asthmatic subjects were described. Asthma Control Test (ACT) that was routinely used to assess asthma and spirometry were performed.
The aim of the study is to determine the incidence of failure of extubation in high-risk patients using High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC) to prevent such failure in the Intensive Care Unit. A prospective cohort study was performed. To all adult patients receiving invasive mechanical ventilation ≥ 48 hours and ready for scheduled extubation according to tolerance of spontaneous breathing trial, with at least one of the criteria for high-risk for extubation failure (age greater than 65 years, hypoxemic acute respiratory failure as a cause of invasive mechanical ventilation, > 1 spontaneous ventilation test failed consecutive, history of chronic heart failure, history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or PaCO2> 45 mmHg, body mass index >30 kg/m2, post-operative solid organ transplantation), HFNC is applied for 24 hours. Demographic variables and clinical and gasometric parameters at the end of the spontaneous breathing trial, at 60 minutes, at 6 and 24 hours after the start of HFNC are recorded.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of investigational doses of once weekly dulaglutide when added to metformin in participants with type 2 diabetes with inadequate blood sugar control.
This is a global Phase III, two-arm, open-label, multicenter, randomized study to investigate the pharmacokinetics, efficacy, and safety of the fixed-dose combination (FDC) of pertuzumab and trastuzumab for subcutaneous (SC) administration in combination with chemotherapy in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive early breast cancer in the neoadjuvant/adjuvant setting.
This protocol provides guidelines for the management of non-metastatic unilateral retinoblastoma and introduces an innovative adjuvant therapy for higher risk patients based upon the results of the Grupo de America Latina de Oncologia Pediatrica (GALOP) I study. Conservative therapy will be not protocolized.
This study tests the hypothesis that the combination of radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy performed with the Swiss DolorClast device (Electro Medical Systems, Nyon, Switzerland) and a specific rehabilitation program (hereafter, "rESWT + RP") is effective and safe in treatment of acute hamstring muscle complex injury Type 3b, and is statistically significantly more effective than the combination of sham-rESWT and RP (hereafter, "sham-rESWT + RP").
