There are about 1214 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.
Vasovagal syncope is an entity frequently in the emergency services, its treatment includes pharmacological and non-pharmacological measures, and in some severe cases, requires the implantation of cardiac stimulation devices, specifically, those pacemakers that have closed-loop sensors (CLS). This research is an intervention study, multi-institutional, randomized and double blind that will be carried out in patients older than 18 years, with a diagnosis of neurally mediated type 1, 2A or 2B syncope documented in a tilting table test, who have had at least 2 syncope in the last year and that significantly affects the quality of life despite the use of pharmacological and non-pharmacological non-interventionist therapy. This study aims to evaluate the effect of cardiac pacing therapy with CLS pacemakers on quality of life, recurrence of syncope and pre-syncopal symptoms in patients with a diagnosis of neurally mediated syncope in this group of patients.
Observational study looking at the burden of illness in achondroplasia subjects aged 3 and above. The study will include a 3 year review of historical clinical data as well as a single point collection of questionnaire data to look at the impact on the following in individuals with achondroplasia versus a normative population: - Quality of life - Clinical burden - Healthcare resource use - Socio-economic burden - Psychosocial burden Up to 175 subjects will be enrolled in sites in Argentina, Colombia and Brazil.
Overweight and obesity are a public health problem for society, reflected by an increase in its prevalence worldwide, being more frequent in women and related to low levels of self-esteem, accumulation of subcutaneous fat and internal organs, reduction of muscle mass (MM) and basal metabolic rate (BMR). Women are more predisposed to present weight gain because they are metabolically less efficient, have greater food intake, greater physical inactivity, and genetic factors. The different methods of physical training used for weight control are continuous training (CT) and the high-intensity interval training (HIIT). Both CT and HIIT have shown benefits without finding superiority of any of these methods. Nevertheless, there is a trend to the use HIIT programs, since they are more time-efficient and supports their use to induce physiological and metabolic adaptations over time, since this is a barrier to adherence to exercise programs. Overweight and obesity causes individual alterations in body composition and exercise leads to increase in MM, increase in caloric expenditure during the training session and increase in BMR due to the onset of muscle growth, secondary to an increase in the activity of the mitochondrial enzymes (greater mitochondrial biogenesis in the muscle), adaptations that could depend on the type of exercise, its intensity and the volume of it, but it is not clear due to the lack of evidence regarding this. The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that a HIIT program of short duration in a real-world setting has a standardized mean difference (SMD) higher than 0.84 in the improvement of self-esteem when comparing with a moderate-intensity continuous training (MICT) in women 18 to 44 years with overweight and obesity and low self-esteem, during eight weeks. The secondary objective is to demonstrate that a low-volume HIIT in a real-world setting improves MM in 2% compared with MICT during a period of eight weeks in women 18 to 44 years.
It is of great importance to generate interventions that help ensure greater inclusion and social participation of the population that was and is a victim of the armed conflict, especially in the post-conflict transition in Colombia, and to influence development in the post-accord period through relationships between groups and society. Therefore, the question for this investigation is, what is the effectiveness of a community-based cross-sector network for the management of mental problems and disorders associated with forced displacement due to armed conflict in the commune of Soacha - Cundinamarca, in order to contribute to inclusion and social participation in the post-accord period? Objective: To design a community-based cross-sector network for the management of mental problems and disorders associated with forced displacement due to armed conflict in the commune of Soacha - Cundinamarca, in order to contribute to inclusion and social participation in the post-accord period in Colombia.
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of erenumab in migraine prevention in children (6 to <12 years) and adolescents (12 to <18 years) with episodic migraine. The study hypothesis is that in pediatric subjects with episodic migraine, the combined erenumab dose group has a greater reduction from baseline to week 9 through week 12 (month 3) in monthly migraine days (MMDs) when compared with placebo in the double-blind treatment phase (DBTP).
Quasi-experimental, retrospective, before and after study, with a control group, to evaluate the effect of an intervention based on disease management, on metabolic control and hospitalizations, in a group of patients with type Diabetes 1, attended in a Provider Institution of Health Services of the city of Medellin - Colombia.
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of erenumab in migraine prevention in children (6 to <12 years) and adolescents (12 to <18 years) with chronic migraine. The study hypothesis is that in pediatric subjects with chronic migraine, the combined erenumab dose group has a greater reduction from baseline to week 9 through week 12 (month 3) in monthly migraine days (MMDs) when compared with placebo in the double-blind treatment phase (DBTP).
Interventional study that evaluate dermatomal distribution and its demographic determinants in patients who underwent to Erector Spinae Plane (ESP) block
Based on the current evidence, it is known that Pilates is an exercise technique that has been used mainly by women in sport, fitness and rehabilitation. Most research has been developed with women. The participation of men in the research studies is reduced and methodology rigor is low, therefore, there is insufficient evidence on the effects of this type of training in men, in addition, there are no studies that have proven the effects of a Pilates-based mat exercise with resistance band on strength of core muscles. The main objective of this research is to identify the effects of a Pilates-based mat exercise program versus a Pilates-based exercise mat program with resistance band on the isometric strength of the core muscles in men 18 to 25 years.
Introduction: Obstetric hemorrhage is the most feared complication that can occur during childbirth and continues to be the leading cause of death in pregnant women worldwide, about 7 women die every hour in the world. This is defined as an accumulated loss of blood of more than 1000 mL with signs and symptoms of hypovolemia within 24 hours of the birth process. The main objective of resuscitation in these patients is precisely to reduce the deleterious effects that are generated from the depletion of volume and the altered capacity of oxygen transport. The current debate focuses on the safety and efficacy of each particular liquid during resuscitation and on improving long-term patient outcomes. At present, there is no conclusive evidence on the impact at the level of acid-base status, hydroelectrolytic balance and potential kidney injury with respect to the use of balanced solutions such as Plasma-Lyte or Ringer's Lactate. Objective: To determine the differences in the volume of liquids and blood products required with the use of balanced crystalloids (Ringer's Lactate or Plasma-Lyte) in patients with obstetric hemorrhage in the Hospital Universitario Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá during 2018 - 2019. Design, Materials, and methods: Historical cohort analytical study. All patients over 18 years of age who present an obstetric hemorrhage defined as bleeding> 1000 mL or less associated with signs or symptoms of hemodynamic instability will be included. The most important exclusion criterion is the presence of active infection at the time of the event. Patients will be divided into two groups, those who underwent hydroelectrolytic resuscitation with Plasma-Lyte and Ringer Lactate. Results and conclusions With this study, we intend to describe the differences in the base acid status measured by arterial gases in patients with obstetric hemorrhage. The aim is to find a relationship between the different groups with clinical outcomes, such as days of ICU stay and hospitalization, blood transfusion requirement, electrolyte disorders, acute kidney injury and survival.
