There are about 6836 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Brazil. 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.
International, Multicentre, Parallel-group, Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Phase III Study Evaluating the effect of Dapagliflozin on Exercise Capacity in Heart Failure Patients with Reduced Ejection Fraction (HFrEF)
Little is known regarding the effectiveness of neonatal oral hygiene and its relationship to colonization by Candida spp. in edentulous oral cavities. Thus, the objective of this study is to evaluate whether the oral hygiene of edentulous infants favors colonization by Candida spp. Newborns with up to 48 hours of life will randomly allocated to two groups. The mothers will instructed to clean the oral cavity with gauze and mineral water three times a day, in the test group, and not to clean, in the control group.
Pregnancy relates to arterial hypertension; it is an aggravating factor for pre-existing chronic arterial hypertension or a trigger for preeclampsia in normotensive women. The gestational hypertensive disease is managed conventionally with the pregnant woman's hospitalization and/or the use of antihypertensive medications. Nevertheless, this treatment may present some risks. The investigators seek to determine whether the intervention compared to the control can reduce the increase in blood pressure that pregnant women in the transition from the 2nd to the 3rd trimester.
Observational study looking at the burden of illness in achondroplasia subjects aged 3 and above. The study will include a 3 year review of historical clinical data as well as a single point collection of questionnaire data to look at the impact on the following in individuals with achondroplasia versus a normative population: - Quality of life - Clinical burden - Healthcare resource use - Socio-economic burden - Psychosocial burden Up to 175 subjects will be enrolled in sites in Argentina, Colombia and Brazil.
Background There is little information regarding the longevity of the restored tooth, considering the health of the pulp-dentine complex, in children who do not sufficiently cooperate with dental treatment. Aim To evaluate the longevity of primary molar teeth with an occluso-proximal cavity that was treated with the selective removal of carious tissue. Design A total of 150 children were allocated to two parallel groups: group 1 (G1, n = 70, control, Ketac Molar Easymix®, 3M/ESPE, Seefeld, GE) and group 2 (G2, n = 80, test, Maxxion®, FGM, Joinville, BR). The study was double-blinded, and an operator specialized in paediatric dentistry performed the selective removal of soft dentine and the restoration of the cavity with GIC. During the follow-up periods, the teeth were evaluated via periapical radiography by two trained examiners specialized in radiology. Statistical analysis was performed using Stata 11.2 software (StataCorp, Texas, USA) and a survival curve (Kaplan-Meier).
This project was developed to analyze the clinical, biochemical and functional impact of tDCS on depressive symptoms in participants with temporal lobe epilepsy, intending to collaborate directly in the development of new therapeutic strategies for participants with epilepsy and associated mood disorders. Another objective of this work is to add knowledge about biosafety, possible behavioral and electrophysiological effects of tDCS in participants with temporal lobe epilepsy. Depending on the findings, the study as proposed may provide immediate results for the care of participants with epilepsy.
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy (rate of very good partial response [VGPR] or better as best response as defined by the International Myeloma Working Group [IMWG] criteria) of daratumumab subcutaneous (Dara-SC) in combination with carfilzomib and dexamethasone (Kd) with the efficacy of Kd in participants with relapsed refractory multiple myeloma who were previously exposed to daratumumab intravenous (Dara-IV) to evaluate daratumumab retreatment.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of 4 or more DNA-repair defects in a population of men with metastatic Prostate Cancer (PC) and to use the variants reported to assess biomarker eligibility for niraparib interventional studies.
Hepatic Glycogen Storage Diseases are a group of 10 serious genetic diseases that present in childhood and are characterized more frequently by the occurrence of repetitive hypoglycemia and dyslipidemia. Regarding treatment, the most commonly used strategy is the frequent administration of uncooked cornstarch, in average, every 4 hours. Although this treatment is successful, the use of large amounts of cornstarch can lead to overweight and, especially, to the decrease in the quality of life of patients and caregivers, due to the need to use the starch during the night. The search for a treatment that is widely available and that can lead to the prolongation of the fasting time, can collaborate to improve the care of these patients. The main scientific question to be answered by this research is: does sweet polvilho, a Brazilian product, safely prolong the fasting time (with normoglycemia) of the patients as already suggested in experimental models? Main objective: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of the use of uncooked sweet polvilho in the treatment of patients with hepatic Glycogen Storage Diseases, using as model the Glycogen Storage Diseases type Ia.
Phase II randomized study of the use of pre-and probiotics during the definitive treatment of chemotherapy-radiotherapy (Ch-RT) for patients with localized anal canal squamous cell cancer (ACSCC) with the objective of increasing the effectiveness of conventional treatment based on the assumptions of that there is a need for research that increases the cure rates of the definitive treatment of Ch-RT in the ACSCC; ACSCC is a virus-associated tumor in many cases and therefore potentially immunogenic; immunotherapy is a promising strategy in ACSCC; and that pre- and probiotics can stimulate the immune system through modulation of the intestinal microbiota, and improve oncological outcomes.
