There are about 16 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Mauritius. 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.
STUDY OBJECTIVE To confirm the incidence of in-hospital postoperative complications in adult surgical patients in Africa. STUDY DESIGN Seven day, African national multi-centre prospective observational cohort study of adult (≥18 years) patients undergoing surgery. Patients will be followed up for a maximum of 30 days. We will follow the original International Surgical Outcomes Study (ISOS) study design. The primary outcome is in-hospital postoperative complications in adult surgical patients in Africa. Secondary outcomes include in-hospital mortality and the relationship between postoperative complications and postoperative mortality. The intention is to present a representative sample of surgical outcomes across all African countries. This study will run between February and March 2016.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ILT-101 (human recombinant interleukin 2 (IL-2)) in patients with moderate to severe systemic lupus erythematosus.
This is a multicenter open-label, prospective study in subjects with dark skin from one of the 3 ethnic/race backgrounds: Asian, Latin American and Black/African-American and with moderate to severe acne vulgaris on the face. All eligible subjects will receive Adapalene 0.3% - BPO 2.5% gel (Epiduo Forte/TactuPump Forte) once daily on whole face. The purpose of this trial is to evaluate subject reported outcomes with the combination of Adapalene 0.3% - BPO 2.5%, Epiduo Forte / TactuPump Forte gel, after 16 weeks of treatment of moderate to severe acne in dark skin phototypes (IV to VI).
Primary Objective: To demonstrate safety of 14-day repeated lixisenatide doses with 3 ascending doses as compared to placebo in pediatric patients with T2DM. Secondary Objectives: - To evaluate plasma concentrations of lixisenatide after repeated doses (3 ascending doses) and pharmacokinetic parameters of repeated lixisenatide doses in pediatric patients with T2DM. - To evaluate the change from baseline in fasting and post-prandial plasma glucose concentrations during a standardized meal test after 3 ascending repeated doses of lixisenatide in comparison to placebo.
The goal of this study is to determine the impact of the food on the absorption of the ABX464.
This current Phase 3 study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of administration of subcutaneous (sc) IPP-201101 in patients with active SLE.
ABX464 is a first in class that showed efficacy as an anti-HIV therapy. The present study is intended to assess the safety, the tolerability, and pharmacokinetic parameters and to evaluate the effect on viral load of repeated oral administrations of ABX464 in patients infected by HIV, not previously treated for their HIV. Two types of design are intended in this protocol: dosing every 3 days or dosing every day. The goal is to determine the best dosing regimen to reduce viral load and minimize adverse events.
New treatments are required to improve health outcomes in patients with ischemic heart disease. This is especially so in developing countries such as Mauritius in which optimal therapy for acute myocardial infarction may not be widely available. For example for patients presenting with a heart attack (caused by a blockage in one of the heart blood vessels) the treatment of choice would be to remove the blockage by primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using an angioplasty balloon and put a stent (a spring-like structure) to keep the artery opened. However, PCI is not widely available in Mauritius and heart attack patients are given clot-busting therapy to remove the blockage, but this is not as effective as PCI. Therefore, in this research study we investigate a new cheap treatment that may help protect the heart against damage during a heart attack, called remote ischemic conditioning (RIC), in which a blood pressure cuff is placed on the upper arm and inflated for 5 minute and deflated for 5 minutes a cycle which is repeated 4 times in total in patients presenting with a heart attack. By temporarily depriving oxygen and nutrients to the arm with the blood pressure cuff a protective signal can be relayed to the heart to reduce the amount of damage occurring during the heart attack and thereby prevent the onset of heart failure. Study hypothesis: Remote ischaemic conditioning will reduce the amount of damage occurring to the heart muscle during a heart attack..
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of oral Pyridorin 300 mg BID in reducing the rate of progression of nephropathy due to type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The primary purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of omega-3 supplementation on behavior problems in children.
