There are about 1074 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.
Levels of blood pressure in adolescents with preeclampsia and eclampsia: Multicenter case-control study (Latin America). Maternities in Latin America: Two hospitals in Panama, one hospital in Mexico, one hospital in El Salvador, one hospital in Guatemala, two hospitals in Honduras, one hospital in Colombia, two hospitals in Peru and two hospitals in Bolivia. The objective is to evaluate the basal levels of blood pressure during pregnancy and determine if there is any increase that is associated with the development of preeclampsia and eclampsia without reaching the known values of 140/90 mm Hg. The sample is 718: (240 Cases and 478 Controls).
There are not published studies evaluating the incidence, nature, magnitude and/or duration of bacteremia after periodontal treatment. The pre-surgical antibiotics have been studied particullary over Gram positive bacterial but not over gram negative bacterial and their secondary effects over the systemic pro-inflamation. Objective: to evaluate the efficacy of intensive periodontal therapy and pre-medication with oral amoxicilline on inflammatory bio-markers and the incidence, duration and magnitude of bacteremia in patients with chronic periodontitis.
The pharmacogenomics of the Colombian population with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), understood as the individual response to drugs depending on the genome of each patient, can be an explanation for the problems of effectiveness and safety that appear during the pharmacotherapeutic treatment of RA. Currently, there are limited studies on the pharmacogenomics of the Colombian population; Therefore, it is necessary to identify and classify the genetic polymorphisms characteristic of Colombian patients with RA, which influence the response of methotrexate, infliximab, etanercept, adalimumab and thus contribute to precision medicine and medical prescription according to the Specificity of the genome of each patient. This project aims to determine the association of genetic polymorphisms with the response to inhibitors of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) and methotrexate. To do this, a prospective study of cases and controls will be performed in patients in 3 hospital of Colombia with pharmacotherapeutic treatment of methotrexate, infliximab, etanercept, adalimumab, in monotherapy or combination therapy. As a result, it is expected to contribute to the performance of specific genetic tests for RA and the generation of a pharmacogenomic basis of the Colombian population with RA.
Interventional study that evaluate analgesia and side effects of Ultrasound guided Caudal block preoperatively in benign canal anal surgery
The purpose of this study is to determine in hospitalized infants and children who are infected with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) the dose-response relationship of multiple regimens of lumicitabine on antiviral activity based on nasal RSV shedding using quantitative real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR).
The purpose of this long-term follow-up (LTFU) study is to evaluate the incidence of the clinical diagnosis of asthma and the frequency of wheezing in infants and children with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection who were treated with (lumicitabine or placebo) and have completed their last planned study‑related visit in a feeding Phase 2 study (64041575RSV2004).
Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of 12 knowledge transfer clips of maternal and neonatal health in order to generate knowledge appropriation. Methodology: Randomized cross-over clinical trial with a non-probabilistic sample of intentional feature of 150 subjects: pregnant women, non-pregnant women and men. Participants will be evaluated during the observation of 13 clips (one of them is the control clip) in which sequence will be assigned randomly. The level of attention will be assessed by means of eye tracking, to see the ocular gaze and fixation in relation to the content of clips, and emotional reaction through the psychophysiological record (galvanic skin response). In addition, recall of information will be assessed through the application of questionnaires at the end of each video. The analysis will focus on identifying differences in the three outcomes between intervention clips and the control clip, and between the three groups, and determine the clips and segments that generate greater emotional response, attention and recall.
The effectiveness of micronutrient powders or MNP as a strategy for the prevention of micronutrient deficiencies has been described in the literature. However, few studies have shown the impact of the inclusion of other simultaneous actions on the different dimensions of food and nutritional security (as in the case of the project "Papas más nutritivas") that will contribute to the improvement of nutritional status, obtaining potentially greater benefits. The objective is to establish the existence of difference in hemoglobin values (and other biochemical parameters as secondary outcomes) among children aged 6 months to 5 years who receive home fortification with micronutrient powders (MNP) belonging to the project "Papas más nutritivas", and children with home fortification with MNP but not belonging to the project.
The patients with primary erectile dysfunction (IIEF-EF <26 points), will be randomly assigned to three shockwave treatment protocols: Protocol 1 six sessions, one per week; Protocol 2, six initial sessions, one per week, followed by monthly maintenance sessions (every 4 weeks) for five months; Protocol 3, six monthly sessions. The EHS and IIEF-EF scores will be compared as well as the possible adverse events from the therapy upon beginning and completing the treatment and at the 3-month and 6-month follow-ups. Self-esteem and quality of life will also be evaluated using the SEAR scale.
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is currently considered one of the most effective strategies to improved cardiorespiratory fitness, which is recognized as a protective factor for cardiovascular diseases and metabolic diseases such as overweight and obesity. However, current evidence is still limited and requires clarity (frequency, time per session and intensity) regarding to greater increases attributed to HIIT. The aim of this study is to compare the effect of a low-volume high-intensity interval training versus a moderate-intensity continuous exercise on maximal oxygen consumption in overweight women 18 to 44 years old.
