There are about 2315 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 main reason for RelevarEM project is the creation of a registry based on a web platform to facilitate the collection of epidemiological data of multiple sclerosis patients from multiple sources in Argentina. The platform will provide the data in a global way that will show the frequency and distribution of the disease in our environment at low cost.
Hearing is the ability to perceive sounds through the ear. If the transmission of sound is defective, the person suffers some degree of hearing loss. Cochlear Implants (CI) provide partial hearing by stimulating auditory nerve cells. The evaluation of the functionality of the CI is facilitated by several analysis tools, such as the clinical calibration software. This offers the possibility of measuring electrical impedances in the cochlea. The electrical impedance is the opposition to the current flow between two electrodes. It is composed of two main elements: resistance and reactance. The impedances in a cochlear implant are not stable over time. The value is minimal immediately after surgery, and increases progressively in the first 2 to 3 weeks after the procedure due to the immune response of the organism against a foreign body and the trauma of the array insertion. Several authors have suggested the use of topical or intravenous corticosteroids to decrease intracochlear fibrosis. The use of Dexamethasone could have a protective effect by reducing the initial inflammatory response, apoptosis, and delayed fibrosis, which could impact the impedance. There is limited evidence on the effect of intra-surgical topical corticosteroids on the impedance of the cochlear implant. The aim of this clinical trial is to evaluate the impact of topical dexamethasone on the electrical impedance of the cochlear implant, with special attention to the analysis of the capacitive component. It will be carried out through an experimental, prospective, randomized and double-blind study. Objective To determine whether the use of topical dexamethasone in a single dose applied in the tympanic cavity (middle ear) during cochlear implant surgery modifies the capacitive component of the electrical impedance of the electrodes in the cochlea before the activation of the cochlear implant. Material and methods A phase 3 clinical trial will be conducted. The design is a parallel, randomized, controlled and double-blind experimental study. Expected impact The use of local dexamethasone during cochlear implant surgery would decrease the inflammatory response, improving postoperative impedances.
This study evaluates seroconversion against measles, mumps, rubella and yellow fever following vaccination. One-third of children will receive both yellow fever and measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccines on the same day; one- third of children will receive MMR vaccine at enrollment followed by yellow fever vaccine 4 weeks later; one-third of children will receive yellow fever vaccine at enrollment followed by MMR vaccine 4 weeks later.
Introduction: the prevalence of falls in adults aged 65 years or older living in the community is 30%, being the second cause of accidental fatal injury and the fifth cause of death. About 20 to 30% of falls result in injuries: 10% constitute serious injuries, from which 5% are fractures. As a result, older adults decrease their mobility, are afraid of falling depressed and socially isolated, increasing the risk of later falls, death and health costs. Falls and their consequences can be prevented, so knowing and assessing the demographic, medical, self-perceived and functional characteristics constitutes an important information for health professionals. Given the high rate (29.59%) of older adults treated at the Physical Therapy outpatient consult of the "Hospital Francisco Santojanni" and the relevance of falls in this population, it is convenient to take a behavior and start by knowing their risk characteristics. Objectives: to determine the incidence of falls of adults aged 65 years and older, seen in the Physical Therapy outpatient consult of the "Hospital Francisco Santojanni"; to describe the characteristics of these population and to identify the potential risk-of-falling factors. Subjects and Methods: observational, prospective, longitudinal cohort study. Demographic (age and sex), medical (history of falls, visual alterations, medication and walking aids), self-perceived (fear of falling and instability perception) and functional characteristics (Test of Timed up and Go, Dynamic Index of gait and balance tests) will be evaluated in those patients of 65 years or more who initiate physical treatment in the outpatient consult of the of the "Hospital Francisco Santojanni" "Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, from March 2017 to February 2018, with a follow-up of 6 months until August 2018, to verify the development of the fall event
Probiotics have been proposed as useful therapeutic alternatives for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome patients. Bacillus clausii is a probiotic that has been used for the treatment of acute diarrhea among adults and pediatric patients, as well as an adjunctive therapy for the treatment for Helicobacter pylori infection. It has been proposed that Bacillus clausii is effective for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome-related symptoms (especially diarrhea and bloating) in non-controlled trials. We sought to determine whether the administration of Bacillus clausii during two weeks plus dietary advice compared to antispasmodics plus dietary advice would be an effective and safe alternative.
This study compares weekly versus daily administration of iron for prevention of anemia in 6 months old infants. One third of the infants that are exclusively breast fed will not receive iron, the second third will receive iron weekly and the last third will receive iron daily. Half of the infants that take infant formula will receive iron weekly and the other half will receive iron daily.

A Multicentre, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled, Parallel Group, Phase 3 Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Tezepelumab in Adults and Adolescents with Severe Uncontrolled Asthma
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that injection cycles consisting of a single administration of paliperidone palmitate 6-month (PP6M) (700 or 1000 milligrams equivalent [mg eq.]) are not less effective than 2 sequentially administered injections of paliperidone palmitate 3-month PP3M) (350 or 525 mg eq.) for the prevention of relapse in participants with schizophrenia previously stabilized on corresponding doses of paliperidone palmitate 1-month (PP1M) (100 or 150 mg eq.) or PP3M (350 or 525 mg eq.).
