There are about 17 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Bahamas. 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.
Diabetes, recently declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, is a risk factor for increased mortality and morbidity. Its multi-functional complications, in the short and long term, are a serious problems for the global public health. Millions of patients, the world over, suffer Diabetes, a chronic and degenerative disease without treatments today. America, and particularly the Caribbean and Central America Region, is seriously affected despite the efforts of the Public Health Systems. Caribbean Region presented nearly twice the incidence and prevalence of type 1 and type 2 diabetes when compared with the rest of the Americas. Today stem cells are emerging as a valid alternative of treatment. In vitro experiments with adult stem cells demonstrated their ability to migrate and differentiate into cells of different lineages. The bone marrow stem cells are safe, effective and have a lot of scientific evidence that supports the carrying out of clinical research in phases II and III. Our protocol is an Autologous Bone Marrow Stem Cell Transplantation, without immune suppression or cell cultures. Our hypothesis is that the stem cells will act as immune modulators, angiogenic and in a regenerative way stimulating quiescent stem cells and improving the metabolic control by endogenous secretion of insulin.
Epidermal grafts are believed to promote healing by two mechanisms: graft take and the promotion of wound healing through the delivery of growth factors and the essential elements of tissue repair and wound healing.28 This study is intended to establish the superior effectiveness of epidermal grafting and multi-layer compression over that of multi-layer compression alone, in the treatment of venous leg ulcers. Millions of Americans are afflicted with painful, open, draining sores on their lower extremities. These sores are referred to as venous leg ulcerations (VLUs). Under the best of circumstances these ulcers require weeks or months to heal. Not uncommonly wound care specialists see patients who have suffered for years or faced amputation of the limb as their only option to alleviate the pain. Standard of care will result in healing in 50% of venous leg ulcers in 12 weeks. However, roughly half of patients suffering from venous ulcers will require advanced therapy. Epidermal grafting has been a reconstructive option for decades; however, to date there has not been a reliable and reproducible system to harvest epidermis. The CelluTome® Harvesting System permits the harvesting of epidermal blister grafts at the patient's bedside without the need for anesthesia. The grafts can be easily transferred to the wound bed. In case studies, epidermal grafting appeared to be effective in reducing wound size and accelerating closure of venous leg ulcers.
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study in overweight and obese subjects with CV disease and/or multiple CV risk factors.
This is a phase 2 multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, two-arm study for subjects with locally recurrent or metastatic triple negative breast cancer. Patients will be randomized 2:1 to either tivozanib hydrochloride and weekly paclitaxel or placebo and weekly paclitaxel. Subjects will be stratified based on Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance score (0 vs 1) and line of treatment (first vs second). All subjects will be evaluated for progression free survival and overall survival as well as safety and tolerability. Biomarker and pharmacokinetic (PK) analysis are also included in study. This study will determine whether tivozanib hydrocholoride combined with weekly paclitaxel improves clinical outcomes in patients with triple negative breast cancer.
The objective of the study is to actively gather additional information on safety, device performance and possible emergent risks following the use of Celotres in a post-market setting when used to reduce the recurrence rate, volume, appearance and/or symptoms associated with keloid scarring in subjects undergoing surgical excision of keloids as compared to the scientific literature.
The objective of the study is to evaluate the initial safety and efficacy of MF-4181, a hydrogel scaffold, in the reduction of the volume, appearance, and/or symptoms associated with keloid scarring in subjects undergoing surgical revision of keloid scars.
Study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, antitumor activity, and pharmacology of MEDI-573 in combination with an AI in adult subjects with HR+, HER2-negative MBC.
This randomized, 3-arm, multicenter, phase III study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) with pertuzumab or trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) with pertuzumab-placebo (blinded for pertuzumab), versus the combination of trastuzumab (Herceptin) plus taxane (docetaxel or paclitaxel) in participants with HER2-positive progressive or recurrent locally advanced or previously untreated metastatic breast cancer. Participants will be randomized to 1 of 3 treatment arms (Arms A, B or C). Arm A will be open-label, whereas Arms B and C will be blinded.
This 3 arm study will assess the tolerability, safety and efficacy of 3 neoadjuvant treatment regimens in patients with locally advanced, inflammatory or early stage HER2-positive breast cancer. Before surgery, patients will be randomized to receive either A) 6 cycles of pertuzumab plus Herceptin, with FEC (5-fluorouracil/epirubicin/cyclophosphamide) for cycles 1-3 and docetaxel for cycles 4-6, or B) FEC for cycles 1-3 followed by pertuzumab plus Herceptin with docetaxel for cycles 4-6, or C) 6 cycles of pertuzumab plus Herceptin with docetaxel and carboplatin. Pertuzumab will be administered at a loading dose of 840mg iv, then 420mg iv 3-weekly, Herceptin at a loading dose of 8mg/kg iv, then 6mg/kg iv 3-weekly, docetaxel at 75mg/m2 iv, increased to 100mg/m2 iv 3-weekly, and FEC and carboplatin iv 3-weekly at standard doses. Following surgery patients will receive Herceptin 6mg/kg iv 3-weekly for a total of 1 year, as well as adequate chemo-, radio- and hormone therapy. Anticipated time on study treatment is 4-12 months, and target sample size is 200-300.
This study is investigating the effects of an experimental drug (neratinib) in combination with paclitaxel versus trastuzumab in combination with paclitaxel for the treatment of women who have not received previous treatment for erbB-2-positive locally recurrent or metastatic breast cancer. The study will compare the effectiveness of each regimen in shrinking tumors and extending the lives of women with erbB-2 (HER2) positive breast cancer. The study will also compare the safety of the two regimens and as well as the quality of life of subjects receiving either regimen.
