There are about 42 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Cuba. 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.
To evaluate the attitude of pre menopausal women with breast cancer faced with the risk of loss of fertility caused by chemotherapy using EORTC's Fertility Questionnaire.
The aim of the study is to test whether a resource-sparing 4-week, 20-fraction course of accelerated hypofractionated radiotherapy is non-inferior to accelerated radiotherapy delivering 33 fractions over 5.5 weeks in the treatment of patients with Stage I-IV squamous cell carcinoma of the pharynx, larynx and oral cavity with the exception of paranasal sinus, nasopharyngeal and stage I-II glottic carcinomas.
This study evaluates the effect of applying low level laser light therapy to individuals with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease to see if it may improve their memory, thinking and behaviors. Half of the participants will receive the real treatment with the laser device and the other half of the participants will receive a placebo treatment (not active laser).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of 2.5, 5 and 10 mg doses of mifepristone against a placebo in women with laparoscopic diagnostic of endometriosis. The hypothesis of the study is that the 5 mg mifepristone dose is safe and effective and should be used in future studies on medical treatment of endometriosis.
- Obesity is an important and growing public health worldwide - Obesity is highly related to the development of metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancer - An extensive body of evidence from efficacy trials has shown that weight loss is achievable, however, a modest weight loss is achieved in a small proportion of patients - Important adverse events have been reported with the use of antiobesity drugs. - The use of natural products with potential effects inducing weight loss is an alternative strategy for treating patients with overweight and obesity. However, efficacy and safety should be evaluated in RCT. - Obex combines different molecules with potential effects inducing weight loss and control on metabolic parameters such as fasting glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides. - Therefore, the administration of Obex in overweight and obese patients with impaired fasting glucose could be an excellent strategy to induce weight loss and ameliorate the metabolic disturbances related to obesity and overweight.
Objectives: to evaluate the efficacy, safety and quality of life by using 2.5 and mifepristone 5 mg daily doses to treat uterine fibroids over 3 months with a 9 months follow-up period. The hypothesis of the study is that the 2.5 mg dosage resulted in a lesser reduction in fibroid size but a similar improvement in quality of life when compared to the 5 mg dose.
This is a prospective, randomized, open label, parallel-group, multicenter phase III study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of active specific immunotherapy with racotumomab plus best supportive care versus best supportive care in patients with advanced NSCLC who have achieved an Objective Response (Partial or Complete Response) or Stable Disease with standard first-line treatment. Also immunological parameters will be evaluated. Best supportive therapy will be administered to all patients in the study according to institutional standards and includes any subsequent onco-specific therapies. 1082 patients will be included in the study, with non-small cell lung cancer in stages IIIA (non-resectable), IIIB or IV.
This is a prospective, multicentre, randomized clinical trial comparing two different neo-adjuvant radiation-based strategies prior to intended surgery for locally advanced adenocarcinoma of the rectum. This trial may establish the investigational therapy to be superior to, or at least not inferior to conventional treatment.
This study compares two different field set-ups in patients with breast cancer following a breast resection (mastectomy). These two set-ups are as follows: arm a - radiotherapy to the chest-wall only, and arm b - radiotherapy to the chest-wall and the supraclavicular fossa. Patients in both treatment arms will receive radiotherapy with a shortened fractionation schedule. Study hypothesis: irradiation of the chest-wall only is not inferior to irradiation of the chest-wall and supraclavicular fossa in terms of loco-regional control, survival and treatment toxicity.
The aim of the study is to asses the hydration status of incident peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients and its evolution over a period of four years, independent of the PD treatment modality (APD or CAPD) and the PD solution type.
