There are about 1034 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.
The study is performed to assess the efficacy and safety of Vilaprisan in subjects with uterine fibroids compared to standard of care
Purpose: The ATTACH trial, as currently designed, will primarily test whether a treatment with Amiodarone for at least 6 months has a trypanocidal effect among individuals with mild-to-moderate Chronic Chagas Cardiomyopathy. A secondary goal will be to confirm, in this population, a clinical benefit from this treatment (in terms of reducing mortality or cardiac arrhythmic events), and to explore whether a potential trypanocidal effect is associated with a clinical benefit.
A phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate the the efficacy of different benznidazole regimens (300mg/day for 60 days, 150mg/day for 60 days, and 400mg/day for 15 days) for the treatment of chronic Chagas disease in adult patients. The efficacy is assessed through the proportion of patients with negative parasitaemia measured by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) during the first 12 months after starting treatment. The study will be performed in Spain, Brazil, Argentina and Colombia.
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is a minimally invasive procedure considered as the treatment of choice for the management of large-scale and fully-formed kidney stones.This procedure has a 5% risk of complications including bleeding, the lesion of the collecting system, the risk of urinary infection and bacteremia. New surgical tools such as dilatation of the nephrostomy tract with mechanical dilatation contribute to the reduction of these risks, together with an improvement in the operative times and a lower rate of complications. At present there are multiple scales measuring the lithiasic morphology (Guy, the STONE nephrolitometry score system and the nomogram of the Office of Clinical Investigation of the Endourology Society - CROES) which allow to evaluate the degree of complexity of the stone, the possibility of residual stones and the risk of complications. These tools allow us to do a better analysis of the risk factors of the patient who will be taken to this type of endoscopic procedure in order to decrease morbidity and complication rates. Hypothesis: The use of pneumatic dilators during percutaneous nephrolithotomy reduces the rates of intraoperative and postoperative complications, which would have an impact on hospitalization times and surgical success for the management of renal stone.
Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) in a non-antibiotic antimicrobial agent used in clinical medicine. Nevertheless, its antiplaque oral effect has not been evaluated. Chlorhexidine (CHX) is the gold standard as an antiplaque agent for its high substantivity in plaque and saliva. There are no published studies evaluating the substantivity of hypochlorous acid compared to CHX. Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of mouthwashes of HOCl in substantivity evaluated by reduction of bacterial viability in saliva during 7 hours compared to CHX rinses and a placebo.
This prospective, surveillance study will assess the operational Zika virus definition for use in future Zika purified inactivated virus (ZIKV) vaccine efficacy trials in order to identify Zika virus disease (ZVD) cases among the study cohort.
Breast cancer has become a major public health problem in Latin America, as it is the most common form of cancer among women. Women are more likely to develop breast cancer at younger age, and to be diagnosed at an advanced stage compared to western women. Over the past twenty years, the mortality from breast cancer in Latin America has also been increasing very rapidly, and is currently the leading cause of cancer mortality. Little is known on specific risk factors for premenopausal breast cancer in general, and in Latin America in particular. There is a lack of specific knowledge on tumor molecular and pathological characteristics of breast cancer in Latin America premenopausal women, and this has major consequences on cancer treatment and survival. To improve our understanding on determinants of breast cancer incidence and mortality in young Latin America women and support preventive actions, we implemented an international, population-based multi-center study in Latin America: the PRECAMA study (Molecular Subtypes of Premenopausal Breast Cancer in Latin American Women (PRECAMA): a multicenter population-based case-control study). PRECAMA is coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), and is conducted within 4 Latin American countries: Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia and Chile. Major aims of the project are the following: 1. To develop a multi-centric population-based case-control study on breast cancer in premenopausal women in several countries in Latin America with structured collection of individual, clinical, pathological information and biological specimens, according to strictly controlled protocols 2. To characterize, in these populations, the subtypes of premenopausal breast cancer on the basis of their molecular and pathological phenotypes 3. To improve the identification of specific endogenous/exogenous factors, and disentangle the interplay of these different factors with regard to breast tumor subtypes. 4. Provide advanced training, induce a structuring effect on the breast cancer research community in Latin America and influence the public health agenda regarding the management of breast cancer. The results of our study will be of utmost importance to understand the etiology of breast cancer in Latin America countries, and would provide important information on the role of modifiable exposures for breast cancer prevention.
The main purpose of this study is to compare how long subjects with esophageal cancer live overall or live without disease progression after receiving nivolumab and ipilimumab or nivolumab combined with fluorouracil plus cisplatin versus fluorouracil plus cisplatin
The main purpose of this study for patients with gastric or gastroesophageal cancer is to evaluate how well the tumor is responding to treatment with nivolumab by itself, or in combination with ipilimumab. For patients with esophageal cancer, the main purpose is to evaluate how well the tumor is responding to treatment with the combination of nivolumab and ipilimumab.
This study evaluates remote ischemic preconditioning as an strategy to avoid contrast induced nephropathy. All of the patients will receive endovenous normal saline to prevent nephropathy, half of the patients will receive remote ischemic preconditioning while the other half will not.
