There are about 277 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Guatemala. 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 is a prospective, multicenter, open-label, single-arm effectiveness and safety study in participants with progressive multiple sclerosis (PMS).
This study proposes to investigate the association of nutritional status of a children assessed by body mass index (BMI), triceps skinfold thickness (TSFT), and mid upper arm circumference (MUAC), with body composition, measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), in 60 children undergoing treatment of ALL at Unidad Nacional de Oncologia Pediatrica (UNOP), in Guatemala City, Guatemala. The study also aims to establish normative values of body composition in children residing in an LMIC by examining 160 healthy siblings of children under treatment, and to measure habitual physical activity in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at diagnosis and during therapy.
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).
The goal of this study is to assess whether 3-5 years-old children who have Vitamin A intakes above the tolerable upper intake level (UL=900 ug per day) have higher total body Vitamin A stores and biomarkers of excessive vitamin A status, compared to children with Normal Vitamin A intakes (250-600 ug per day).
This is a Phase III/IV, single-arm, multicenter study of the long-term safety and efficacy of atezolizumab treatment in participants with Stage IIIb or Stage IV NSCLC who have progressed after standard systemic chemotherapy (including if given in combination with anti-programmed cell death protein 1 [anti-PD-1] therapy, after anti-PD-1 as monotherapy, or after tyrosine kinase inhibitor [TKI] therapy). The study will consist of a Screening Period, a Treatment Period, a Treatment Discontinuation Visit, and a Follow-Up Period.
This is a phase IIIb, single arm, open-label, multi-center study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of emicizumab in participants with congenital hemophilia A who have documented inhibitors against Factor VIII (FVIII) at enrollment. Approximately 200 participants, aged 12 or older, will be enrolled in this study and are expected to be enrolled at approximately 85 sites globally. Participants will receive an initial weekly dose of prophylactic emicizumab subcutaneously for 4 weeks, followed by a weekly maintenance dose subcutaneously for the remainder of the 2-year treatment period.
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab plus cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) chemotherapy versus placebo plus cisplatin and 5-FU chemotherapy as first-line treatment in participants with locally advanced or metastatic esophageal carcinoma. The primary efficacy hypotheses are that both progression-free survival (PFS), according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 and determined by blinded independent central review, and overall survival (OS) are superior with pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy compared with placebo plus chemotherapy in all participants as well as participants whose tumors are programmed cell death-ligand 1 (PD-L1)-positive.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, efficacy and pharmacokinetics (PK) of CF-301 in addition to background standard of care (SOC) antibacterial therapy for the treatment of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) bloodstream infections (bacteremia), including endocarditis in adults. Patients will be randomized to receive a single intravenous dose of CF-301 or placebo in addition to SOC antibacterial therapy. Patients will be prescribed standard of care antibiotics selected by the investigators based on their professional experience, practice guidelines and local antibiotic susceptibility information for the treatment of S. aureus bacteremia. CF-301 is a lysin and member of a new class of targeted protein-based antimicrobials that has demonstrated activity against S. aureus in laboratory (in vitro) and animal studies, alone and in addition to conventional antibiotics.
This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of crenezumab versus placebo in participants with prodromal to mild AD. Participants will be randomized 1:1 to receive either intravenous (IV) infusion of crenezumab or placebo every 4 weeks (q4w) for 100 weeks. The primary efficacy assessment will be performed at 105 weeks. The participants who do not enter open-label extension will enter for a long term follow-up period for up to 52 weeks after the last crenezumab dose (Week 153).
The objective of this research project is to investigate specific behaviors and exposures related to sugarcane work and their association with non-communicable diseases, specifically Chronic Kidney Disease of Unknown Origin (CKDu) among sugarcane workers in Guatemala. Over the course of the 6-month sugarcane harvest the investigators will assess risk factors for declining kidney function, and also changes in biomarkers of kidney function pre and post work shift of field and factory workers and their possible relationships with dehydration and heat stress. The investigators will also evaluate the effectiveness of an intervention aimed at increasing hydration and reducing heat stress. Finally the investigators will measure biomarkers of exposure and environmental samples for heavy metals, agrochemicals, and infectious disease (Leptospira).
