There are about 1047 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.
This study will investigate BMS-986165 to assess its effects in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
To examine the impact of health determinants at the individual (e.g. health related behaviors) and societal level (e.g. environmental factors, health related policy, quality of health systems) on health outcomes (e.g. death, non-communicable disease development) across a range of socioeconomic and health resource settings. Additional components of this study will examine genetic factors for non-communicable diseases. This will be examined both through a cross sectional component, and prospectively (cohort component).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of pembrolizumab (MK-3745) in the neoadjuvant (prior to surgery) or adjuvant (after surgery) treatment of adults with gastric and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma. The primary hypotheses of this study are that pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy is superior to placebo plus chemotherapy in terms of overall survival (OS), event-free survival (EFS) and pathological complete response (pathCR) rate.
Primary Determine the impact of prescribing a routine pre-surgical walk scheduled compared to conventional intervention (not recommended exercise) in reducing the length of hospital stay and the time of onset of ambulation during postoperative hospitalization, in patients with ability to move, ≥30 years who will undergo non-cardiac surgery. Secondary 1. Evaluate ischemic cardiovascular events (AMI), stroke (CVA) and cardiac mortality during hospitalization. 2. Evaluate the incidence of falls during hospitalization. Methodology The PAMP project phase II, as a component of CARDIECOL program will be implemented by designing a pilot study, a randomized controlled trial. Adult-patients with greater than or equal to 30 years old entering elective non-cardiac surgery, prior informed consent will be randomized to an intervention prescribed of walking in the period of 2-3 weeks before surgery or will be assigned to a Control group/conventional care. The study was not blinded to patients, but evaluation and analysis of the data will be blinded for researchers and statisticians. Patients will be evaluated on their previous level of physical activity and will be evaluated by a physiatrist doctor for prescribing the walk (exercise). This study will include a sample of 500 patients, with capacity to mobilize, ability to walk at least 30 min/by day (150 min by week) for at least 1 week before surgery. Patients have to be hospitalized for at least 24 hours after the surgical procedure. Outcomes are length of stay, and time to first walk. Other results are evaluation falls during hospitalization and the presence of falls, report of cardiovascular events, and death by group. Expected results
Fear of falling is a major health problem among community-dwelling older adults that may contribute to avoidance of activities that they are capable of performing. Studies show that the fear of falling may lead to a continual, complex decline in older adults that includes a loss of auto efficacy, restriction of physical activities and social participation, physical frailty, falls and disability. Apart from these effects, the fear of falling may also have financial implications for health care systems and the general public. Several interventions have been shown to reduce fear of falling with multifactorial interventions, including physical and behavioral components, being most successful. Behavioral components usually comprise strategies to reduce catastrophic thinking and fear-related avoidance behaviors while physical components usually comprise falls prevention exercise programs. However, multifactorial programs are not always feasible or preferred by older people. In this framework, the objective of this works is to assess the effects (benefits and effectiveness) of three interventions programs (Tai Chi, postural control exercises and behavioral therapy intervention) to improve functionality and decrease fear of falling in older people living in the community.
The proposed project seeks to implement a cluster-randomized controlled trial (RCT) to measure the impact of increasing women´s incomes and providing gender equality trainings on women´s empowerment and risk of intimate partner violence (IPV) in Colombia. This project will be the first in Latin America to evaluate rigorously the impact of a marketing intervention, alone and combined with IPV prevention training. The knowledge generated from this evaluation has the potential to identify the most effective solutions to empower women, as well as to drive transformative change in current approaches to reduce IPV and promote gender equality in highly vulnerable populations in Colombia, and worldwide.
This is a multi-center case-control study that aims to define the association between the exposure to an arbovirus infection and the development of a neurological syndrome in patients from Colombia. The study makes part of the Neurovirus Emerging in the Americas Study (NEAS) that is a collaborative effort that looks to combine the efforts of researchers, healthcare providers and patients in Colombia to establish a comprehensive registry of the clinical, radiological and laboratory profile of patients with new onset of neurological diseases associated mosquito-borne viruses, known as arboviruses.
Background: Transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation is an effective therapy for controlling urinary incontinence. Premature ejaculation (PE) and urinary incontinence are anatomically and physio-pathologically similar. Based on this, the use of this therapy is considered to be viable for the control of PE. Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve electrostimulation for the ejaculatory reflex. Patients and Methods: Phase II clinical trial. Patients with a diagnosis of premature ejaculation who are treated at the Colombia Boston Medical Group clinic will be included. The participants will receive 3 transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation therapies per week for 12 weeks. The IELT and the PEDT scale will be evaluated on week 6, at the end of treatment and three months after completing the protocol.
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the drugs dapagliflozin and saxagliptin in patients with Type 2 Diabetes who are aged 10 to below 18 years old and are currently taking metformin, insulin, or both drugs. Dapagliflozin and saxagliptin are both approved for use in patients with Type 2 Diabetes aged 18 years or older. This study will assess how well dapagliflozin and saxagliptin work by finding out how these treatments affect blood glucose (sugar) levels compared to placebo (a pill that contains no active drug), in children and adolescents. Dapagliflozin and saxagliptin are considered investigational products in this study since while they have been approved for use in adults (patients 18 years or older), they haven't been approved for children and adolescents due to lack of clinical studies in this specific population. Patients with Type 2 Diabetes have higher levels of blood glucose (sugar) than patients who do not have this disease. The high level of sugar in the blood can lead to serious short-term and long-term medical problems. The main goal of treating diabetic patients is to lower blood glucose to a normal level. Lowering and controlling blood glucose help prevent or delay complications of diabetes, such as heart disease, kidney, eye and nerve diseases, and the possibility of amputation. Dapagliflozin is a drug that helps to reduce blood glucose (sugar) levels by helping the kidneys to remove excess glucose from the blood and excrete it in the urine. It prevents the kidneys from returning glucose from the urine back into the bloodstream. Saxagliptin increases insulin production when blood glucose levels are high. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows the body to use sugar (glucose) from the food that is eaten for energy or to store glucose for future use. Saxagliptin helps to improve blood sugar levels in response to a meal and between meals if blood glucose levels are not lowered effectively. Saxagliptin does not work when the blood glucose is low. Saxagliptin also helps to decrease the amount of sugar made by the body. Together, these processes reduce blood glucose levels and help to control Type 2 Diabetes. Dapagliflozin (alone or in combination with other antidiabetic drugs) has been shown to be effective in lowering blood glucose in adults with Type 2 Diabetes and is available for use in adults (patients 18 years or older) in approximately 40 countries worldwide including the USA and Europe. Dapagliflozin has not yet been studied in children (pediatric patients). Saxagliptin (alone or in combination with other antidiabetic drugs) has been shown to be effective in lowering blood glucose in adults with Type 2 Diabetes and is available for use in adults (patients 18 years or older) in approximately 90 countries worldwide. Saxagliptin also has not yet been studied in children (pediatric patients). The subject will either receive one of the active study drugs or a placebo (a pill that looks identical but contains inactive drug). This study will be double blind; this means that neither the subject, nor the study doctor will know which treatment the subject will receive. Which treatment the subject receives is decided by a computer, purely by chance; this is called a "random assignment". For this study, there will first be a screening phase of up to 6 weeks, followed by a 2 week lead in phase. Thereafter there will be a 26 week short-term treatment phase (week 1-week 26), and a 26 week long-term treatment phase (week 27-week 52). Following this there will be a follow-up telephone call on week 56 and a post study visit at week 104. At day 1 visit after the lead in phase the subject will be randomly assigned to receive one of 3 treatments: dapagliflozin 5 mg, saxagliptin 2.5 mg or placebo in a blinded manner. This treatment will continue up to week 14. Then after week 14, and until the end of the study, the subject will be assigned to receive one of the following 5 treatments: dapagliflozin 5 mg, dapagliflozin 10 mg, saxagliptin 2.5 mg, saxagliptin 5 mg or placebo in a blinded manner. The drugs assigned after week 14 will be the same drugs as at Day 1, but some of the groups will receive them at a higher dose. After completion of the 26-week short-term phase, the subject will enter a 26 week long-term phase. The same treatment that the subject had been assigned to at week 14 visit will be continued. This long-term phase is primarily designed to provide additional information on how well dapagliflozin and saxagliptin are tolerated. Following the treatment phases, there will be a follow-up telephone call at week 56. The subject will be asked to visit the clinic at week 104 again for a final evaluation of the physical development (based on the stage of puberty).
