There are about 45 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Jamaica. 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.
The primary hypothesis is that the intervention video - based on strategies from cognitive psychology - can correct women's misinformation about long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) and result in higher use of LARC. While there are no direct benefits to participants from being in the study, the research could benefit women in general by providing evidence to help prevent unintended pregnancy. Unlike many interventions that are not feasible for scaling up once shown to be effective in changing people's behavior, the proposed intervention has been carefully designed to impose a low burden to clinic staff and require few resources for translating to wider use. Thus, the investigators expect the intervention to have high potential for influencing clinical care and research for addressing the overall goal of reducing unintended pregnancy.
An open label, safety and pharmacokinetic study of oral hydroxyurea solution administered to children from 6 months to 17.99 years (i.e. to the day before 18th birthday), with a 12 15 month treatment period for each participant. The study treatment duration will be for 6 months at the maximum tolerated dose [MTD], which is usually reached by 6 months after initiation of treatment. For patients in whom time to MTD is longer than 6 months or not achieved at all, the maximum duration of study treatment will be 15 months.
This is a single dose clinical trial to assess the Pharmacokinetics of two (2) dosages; 10 mg and 20mg of THC: THCa of Prana P1 bionutrients in healthy volunteers.
The purpose of this study is to identify the prevalence of back pain in preclinical second year and clinical fourth/fifth year medical students at the University of the West Indies; to assess their knowledge, attitude and practice of good spine health; and to determine the outcome of a standardize spine exercise program on one group, the clinical second year medical students, using a prospective randomized control design.
This study evaluates the effectiveness of ginger on the incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing gynaecological surgery. Half the patients were given an oral dose of ginger preoperatively and half received placebo.
Many individuals with sickle cell disease experience both a poor quality of life and stigma. Individuals with SCD often experience high levels of stigma which can be a barrier to good self-management and hinder quality of life. The purpose of this research is to improve understanding of the relationships between stigma, self-management, and quality of life in SCD in the United States and Jamaica. The findings from this project will contribute to the development of a tool to measure self-management strategies and will also guide the development of interventions to improve SCD self-management.
This is a multi-center, double-blind, randomized, parallel group, dose-ranging study to investigate the efficacy and clinical usability of STAP-001 in adult (18 years of age and older) subjects with epilepsy with a predictable seizure pattern. These subjects have an established diagnosis of focal or generalized epilepsy with a documented history of predictable seizure episodes. This is an in-patient study. The subjects will be admitted to a Clinical Research Unit (CRU) or Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) for study participation. The duration of the stay in the in-patient unit will be 2-8 days. One seizure event per subject will be treated with study medication. The duration and timing of the seizure event and occurrence of subsequent seizures will be assessed by the Staff Caregiver(s)1 through clinical observation and confirmed with video electroencephalogram (EEG).
To prospectively compare erectile function at 12 months, utilizing the abbreviated International Index of Erectile Function-5 (IIEF-5) score, for men treated with an immediate repair versus a delayed repair.
FACT 4 Child is a follow up study of mothers who participated in the Folic Acid Clinical Trial (NCT01355159) and their children at 4-6 years of age to determine the effect of high dose folic acid supplementation on social impairments associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), and deficiencies in a range of executive function and emotional and behavioural problems in young children, and the risk of death.
