There are about 1123 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Colombia. 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.
Evaluation of neuropsychiatric and cardiovascular side effects of low dose ketamine analgesic infusion for postoperative pain
Randomized clinical trial that aims to determine the effectiveness of a counseling intervention to modify the stage of behavioral change in risk behaviors (smoking and risky alcohol consumption) in patients candidates for scheduled surgery or diagnostic procedures at the Hospital Universitario de San Ignacio. Bogotá-Colombia
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.
This project offers the opportunity to obtain detailed measurements on the health of body composition, metabolic health, and intestinal microbial diversity in overweight adults; moreover to provide information about the effects of physical exercise on them. The aim of the research is to advance in the understanding of the mechanisms induced by physical exercise, which includes the measurement of nutritional parameters, clinical and biochemical biomarkers of hepatic/cardiometabolic health, as well as the application of differential proteomics technologies by means of Arrays of cytokines and intestinal microbiome, making this study a novel and pioneer in sensitive areas of primary health care in Latin America.
Metabolic and cardiovascular diseases are the first cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world, including Latin America and Colombia. Asymptomatic elevations of blood glucose, insufficient response to normal insulin concentrations (called insulin resistance), overweight and obesity can cause severe damage to body organs, leading to complications and even death. Worryingly, the prevalence of prediabetes is on the rise and efforts in public health policies made to contain this epidemic have had a very limited impact. This has prompted an intense search for non-pharmacological interventions. One of the most promising areas is research on "nutraceuticals", foods capable of positively impacting risk factors. However, there are insufficient nutritional or supplementary alternatives to favorably impact carbohydrate metabolism and cardiovascular risk factors in individuals at risk of diabetes. This project will evaluate the effects of the administration of a dietary supplement composed of vegetable oils. The fat composition of these oils is likely to impact positively on the metabolic profile of subjects at risk of diabetes and cardiovascular conditions.
The objetive of the study is to evaluate the effect of personalized quantum sonotherapy on the level of anxiety and pain in outpatients schedule for orthopedic surgery under regional anesthesia in a second level center. The investigators believed that personalized quantum sonotherapy could reduce the levels of anxiety and pain before and after surgery evaluated through hemodynamic variables and scales for pain (analogous visual scale) and anxiety (STAI Spielberger anxious state questionnaire).
The current trial focuses on the effectiveness evaluation of Semillas de Apego in Tumaco, a municipality in Colombia heavily affected by violence and poverty. Over a time-span of 23 months, the researchers will follow the implementation of Semillas de Apego with 40 groups of 16 participants each, all of them mothers or primary caregivers of children 2 to 5. This will allow the researchers to reach a total of 640 participants and their children. The impact evaluation will be based on a cluster- randomized control trial in which the researchers will assign 1280 eligible subjects, nested within 18 child development centers, to either an intervention arm or a control group. The former group will participate in 15 group-led session over the period of 3 months; the latter will continue to have access to the regular early childhood programs offered through the centers to which children are affiliated. Data will be collected at baseline and two follow-ups: 1 and 12 months after the implementation has concluded. The researchers hypothesize that the program will have a positive and sequential impact on the following dimensions: (i) primary caregiver's mental health, (ii) child rearing practices, (iii) quality of child-parent emotional bond, (iv) children's mental health, and (v) children's cognitive and socioemotional development.
This study evaluates patient response to a motivation evolution chart for a medical-nutrition intervention as a continuation of a previous study: adherence to an overweight and obesity treatment available at: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25101227
This population-based descriptive study will characterize first-time users of three NOACs (rivaroxaban, dabigatran and apixaban) in prevention of stroke in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (SPAF) patients and will assess the patterns of drug utilization in routine general practice in Colombia
