There are about 61 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Honduras. 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.
Pulmonary Disorders are often categorized as Obstructive or Restrictive disorders. This study will establish two channels of investigation, one group within each type of pulmonary dysfunction. State-of-the-Art Objective analytics will be employed to track patients from baseline and 6 month intervals for up to one year. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a lung-related disorder that is characterized by long-term, often progressive state of poor airflow. Primary symptoms include low oxygen tension, shortness of breath, productive cough, and broncho-pulmonary inflammation and interference with oxygen-carbon dioxide exchange. COPD is generally considered those who are able to better inspire air than to expel. Restrictive lung dysfunctions are generally considered those who are unable to achieve full inspiration function. Both can create some of the same symptoms, low Oxygen exchange, activity intolerance of exertion, shortness of breath (SOB), Pulmonary Hypertension, Loss of lung structure, Pneumothorax (in emphysema), may mandate supplemental Oxygen therapy, failure of airway mucus management (chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, etc), and other failure of lung function issues. Restrictive lung disorders represent a group of pulmonary function losses which are due to acquired fibrosis, congenital fibrotic disorders, functional airway damage (scarring), vascular abnormalities in arterial/venous supply, Air pollution and tobacco smoking, chemical inhalation damage, etc. are felt to be common contributor of these issues. Diagnostic testing is based on poor airflow measured by lung function studies and whose symptoms do not improve much with anti-asthma bronchodilators, steroids, and a variety of combination of topical medications. Study is an interventional study to document the safety and efficacy of use of cSVF in chronic broncho-pulmonary disease within both groups.
This study will evaluate whether sending educational and supportive mobile phone text messages to mothers of infants, from babies' day of birth until 6 months of age, increases the rate of exclusive breastfeeding in Roatan, Honduras.
Purpose of study is to determine safety and efficacy of use of autologous Adipose-Derived cellular Stromal Vascular Fraction (AD-cSVF) suspended in Normal Saline and delivered via intravascular system of quality of life and alteration of documented Advanced Muscular Sclerosis (MS). It is believed that the heterogeneous cell population which includes multipotent stem/stromal cells plus non-multipotent cellular elements are capable of immune modulation/inflammatory modulation properties. Exam of disease progression and quality of life changes will be evaluated by sophisticated mathematical non-biased MRI analysis.
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).
This study will be conducted at La Liga Contra el Cancer in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The overall objective of this project is to improve symptom management for patients undergoing chemotherapy in Honduras. The first step in this line of research is a "proof of concept" feasibility study in which the investigators will demonstrate their ability to train nurses to administer a non-pharmacological, telephone-delivered, symptom management program for chemotherapy patients.
This prospective, surveillance study will assess the operational Zika virus definition for use in future Zika purified inactivated virus (ZIKV) vaccine efficacy trials in order to identify Zika virus disease (ZVD) cases among the study cohort.
To establish the bioequivalence between test drug, Pimecrolimus Cream, 1% with that of reference listed drug, Elidel® (pimecrolimus) Cream 1%, in the treatment of mild to moderate Atopic Dermatitis. To establish superiority of each active treatment over the placebo.
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Causalgia, and Fibromyalgia represent progressive systemic pain conditions which often worsen over time. They appear to be dysregulation of the central nervous system (CNS) and the autonomic system (sympathetic/parasympathetic) which cause extensive functional losses, impairment, and disabilities. They are often associated with injury sites (including surgical) which produce constant, often disabling pain and motor-sensory losses. Treatments are often ineffective and include medications (often high dose opiates), Physical Therapy (PT), and surgical interventions (sympathectomy, ablation) or insertion stimulators of the CNS. Study is an interventional study to document the safety and efficacy of use of adipose-derived cellular stromal vascular fraction (AD-cSVF) in chronic pain and dysfunction disease groups.
This study will evaluate the clinical sensitivity and specificity of the FilmArray Global Fever (GF) Panel.
