There are about 283 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 is a pilot quasi-experimental study to evaluate the impact of adding a family garden intervention to an existing wrap-around nutrition intervention for children with chronic malnutrition and their family. The existing nutrition intervention is provided by community health workers affiliated with Wuqu' Kawoq | Maya Health Alliance. A single community in rural Guatemala will participate in the intervention, with the goal to recruit approximately 70 families in the combined nutrition/garden intervention. A nearby community, also participating in the nutrition intervention, will serve as a nonrandom contemporaneous control. Aims of the study include: 1. Evaluate the impact of the garden intervention on maternal and child dietary diversity, child growth and household food insecurity. 2. Use the Reach Effectiveness Adoption Implementation Maintenance (RE-AIM) framework to conduct a preliminary implementation analysis, to guide a future, well-controlled study.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of pembrolizumab (MK-3745) in combination with chemotherapy (Cisplatin combined with 5-Fluorouracil [FP regimen] or oxaliplatin combined with capecitabine [CAPOX regimen]) versus placebo in combination with chemotherapy (FP or CAPOX regimens) in the treatment of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) negative advanced gastric or GEJ adenocarcinoma in adult participants. The primary hypotheses of this study are that pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy is superior to placebo plus chemotherapy in terms of overall survival (OS), and progression-free survival (PFS).
In this study, the investigators will be using a smartphone application that the investigators developed to guide community health workers through the clinical assessment of patients with diabetes including collection of demographic data and past medical history, assessment of medication history, adherence, and adverse effects, measurement of glycemic control, screening for complications, medication administration and titration, and patient counseling.
The study will compare the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab plus trastuzumab in combination with standard of care (SOC) chemotherapy versus trastuzumab in combination with SOC chemotherapy in participants with HER2-positive gastric cancer. The primary hypotheses of the study are that pembrolizumab plus trastuzumab in combination with chemotherapy is superior to trastuzumab plus chemotherapy in terms of 1) progression free survival (PFS) per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors 1.1 (RECIST 1.1) as assessed by blinded independent central review (BICR), and 2) overall survival (OS).
To provide real world data on patient characteristics, disease management, healthcare utilization, and outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes and established micro- and/or macrovascular disease
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.
The primary objective of this study will be to evaluate the efficacy of gefapixant (MK-7264) in reducing cough frequency as measured over a 24-hour period. It is hypothesized that at least one dose of gefapixant is superior to placebo in reducing coughs per hour (over 24 hours) at Week 24.
The primary goal of this study is to assess the impact of an innovative strategy to prevent undernutrition and obesity in early childhood in children 0-24 months in Guatemala. This study is designed to evaluate the impact of promoting adequate infant an young child feeding practices and the use of SQ-LNS (Small Quantity Lipid-Based Nutrient Supplements) on the nutritional status of infants and young children. The study will be conducted in Baja Verapaz, Guatemala in conjunction with Fundazucar, Guatemala.
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 1050: (350 Cases and 700 Controls).
