There are about 1240 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.
We aim to determine the prevalence of pre-treatment of resistance-associated mutations (RAMs) in a naïve and recently diagnosed HIV infection in 18 centers from 12 cities in Colombia. This evaluation will include the genotyping of all three enzymes, reverse transcriptase, protease, and integrase. This type of complete primary resistance profile has not yet been reported in Colombia and there is only scanty data regarding resistance-associated mutations to NRTIs, NNRTIs, and PIs in the country
The purpose of this study is to characterize the multiple myeloma (MM) population concerning demographics and clinical characteristics (for example. frailty, risk strata, manifestations of target organ damage [TOD]) in 6 countries (that is Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Panama); and to profile the treatment landscape of Latin American MM participants, including factors associated with health-care provider (HCP) selections of different treatment regimens. These factors can include a participant's demographic and clinical characteristics and availability of different therapy options per institution in each country.
The aim of the HEM-POWR study is to understand better how Damoctocog alfa pegol (Jivi) is used to treat people with Hemophilia A in day-to-day life, how well the treatment is tolerated and how satisfied patients and physicians are with the treatment.
Operative site infection remains the most common complication after performing a gynecological procedure, and has a great implication in the morbidity and mortality of patients. Gynecological procedures, including laparoscopic hysterectomy, represent a unique challenge due to the amount of microorganisms found at the skin level of the vagina or the endocervix. However, there is no clear evidence that the complication decreases with the use of postoperative antibiotics. With the completion of this study, a multicentre triple-blind controlled randomized controlled trial is intended to determine the behavior of the application of this intervention. Patients who attend an outpatient clinic with benign pathology will be selected, in which indication of laparoscopic hysterectomy, consents are completed and research content is widely explained. Prior to surgery, the sample is taken for a gram of vaginal discharge and in the post-surgical phase delivery of the medication will be performed. Follow-up will be carried out by surgical control and by telephone. The investigator intend to find that with the prophylaxis not only of presurgical cephalosporin, but with the formulation of metronidazole ovules in the postoperative, the incidence of laparoscopic post-hysterectomy vaginal abscess and cellulitis of cuff is reduced.
The objective of this study is to establish the bioequivalence of two valproic acid formulations through the estimation of valproic acid in plasma samples, according to Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), World Health Organization (WHO) and Colombian National Vigilance Institute for Drugs and Food (INVIMA) guidelines.
The researchers are doing this study to look whether the type 2 diabetes medicine, semaglutide, has a positive effect on heart disease. Participants will either get semaglutide tablets or placebo tablets ("dummy" medicine) - which treatment is decided by chance. Participants must take one tablet with water every morning on an empty stomach and not eat or drink anything for at least 30 minutes. The study will last for about 3.5-5 years. Participants will have up to 25 clinic visits and 1 phone call with the study doctor. Women cannot be in the study if pregnant, breast-feeding or if they plan to become pregnant during the study period.
the purpose of the study is to look for differences in dimensional variations of augmented maxillary sinuses with or without the placement of a collagen membrane subjacent the sinus mucosa.
the aim of the present study was to evaluate the dimensional variation and healing of the antrostomy left unprotected or protected with a collagen membrane
Hepatitis C is a public health problem and the high cost of the Direct-Acting Antivirals (DAA) is one of the main limitations for treatment worldwide. In Colombia, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection (MoHSP) has made progress in addressing Hepatitis C problem in order to control the infection and resolve barriers to access to medicines. One of the strategies implemented was the purchase of DAA, in association with the PAHO, and the instauration of the Clinical Pathway for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C. The implementation of the Clinical Pathway has required the integration of health care processes and the respective report in the health information systems, allowing a high level of control in the monitoring of the Hepatitis C and the subsequent generation of indicators. However, there is limited information on the effects of the strategic purchase and the instauration of the Clinical Pathway on the costs of care, clinical outcomes and the quality of health care for patients with Hepatitis C in Colombia. The aim of this study is to establish the effect of strategic purchasing and the Clinical Pathway for the treatment of chronic Hepatitis C, in the clinical results, in the general costs and quality of health care of Hepatitis C patients in Colombia.
This study evaluates the efficacy in achieving clinical cure in non-bacteremic urinary tract infections (UTI) caused by Escherichia coli or Klebsiella pneumoniae producers of extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBL) in adult patients. Half of participants will receive Piperacillin/Tazobactam as treatment, while the other half will receive Carbapenems. The investigators will verify that Piperacillin/Tazobactam is not inferior in achieving clinical cure, and that is not associated with a higher risk of adverse events in the directed treatment of non-bacteremic UTI compared to Carbapenems. The researchers hope to improve the use of antibiotics in the non-bacteremic UTI, reducing the "collateral damage" related to a deterioration in the prognosis of patients and the generation of resistant germs caused by the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics as carbapenems.
