There are about 2972 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Mexico. 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 objective of the present study was to assess the effect of a growing-up milk on growth and micronutrient status in children 12 to 30 months of age. The study was conducted in Cuernavaca, the state capital of Morelos, Mexico. The investigators included children who attended day-care centers. These day- care centers are part of a national government program which main objective is to support working mothers and those who intend to work and do not have access to a health service and are at risk of poverty. The study described herein is a randomized, parallel, double-blind, controlled trial by administration of growing up milk (GM) and fortified milk (FM). Results showed a significant improvement in linear growth in both supplemented groups, with no statistical difference between treatments. By using an artificial, population-based comparison group, the investigators conclude that this improvement was attributable to the supplements.
This is an open, randomized (randomization ratio: 1:1), multiple dose, three way, three period cross over study to assess the potential for drug drug interactions between gemigliptin (a DPP-IV inhibitor mainly metabolized by CYP3A4) and metformin in a sample of healthy Mexican volunteers, aimed to determine whether the observed lack of drug-drug interactions between gemigliptin and metformin in the Korean population is reproducible in an ethnically different population characterized by a significant difference in the frequency of CYP3A4 polymorphisms associated with decreased enzymatic activity, such as CYP3A4*1b, in comparison with Asian populations.
A 65 year old female participant , right handed, started with progressive bilateral visual loss in her temporal field, over 10 months, the participant underwent an MRI and it was found a sellar lesion that compressed the optic chiasm, an endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery was done for the resection of the lesion, using a novel bilaminar chitosan scaffold to assist the closure of the sellar floor. After a follow up of 2 years the participant returned to its normal visual function, without evidence of the sellar lesion on the postoperative MRI, and without complications.
A clinical controlled, randomized and double blind trial that included adult patients (≥18 years) receiving kidney transplantation (KT) at the INCMNSZ. The intervention group will receive disodium fosfomycin 4 g intravenously in three moments: preoperative of transplant surgery, prior to removal of the urinary catheter and finally prior to removal of ureteral catheter. The control group will receive placebo in the same moments. Both groups will receive prophylaxis standard for urinary tract infection (UTI), with trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole 160/800 mg per day. This prophylaxis will be administered once the estimated glomerular filtration rate is greater than 30 mL/min/1.73m2. The primary objective is to compare the average number of episodes of UTI´s and asymptomatic bacteriuria in both groups after 7 weeks of follow-up. The secondary objectives are to know the incidence of asymptomatic bacteriuria, the incidence of hospitalizations for IVU, the days of hospital stay, the pattern of bacterial resistance, the safety of disodium fosfomycin, and assessment of the function of the graft and rejection rate.
Sleep deprivation produces changes including alteration of mood, irritability, fatigue, less focus and disorientation, also perceptive distortions, visual hallucinations and considering tasks harder and less pleasant. In resident phsycians, these alterations have been shown to affect their work performance. Naps have proved to improve arousal and attention, alertness and performance. Those longer than 90 minutes promote a learning process similar to that ocurring in REM sleep. Therefore a nap schedule could improve the decision making of residents during their working hours.
The objective of the study was to demonstrate the efficacy of a nutritional intervention based on the Social Cognitive Theory and the Transtheoric Model in the favorable modification of eating habits in adolescents of secondary education. The hypothesis was that secondary school adolescents receiving a nutritional intervention based on Social Cognitive Theory and the Transtheoric Model presented more favorable modifications in their eating habits than adolescents who only received nutritional information. A community trial was conducted with pilot testing for the validation of the study instruments. Adolescents from the second grade of the afternoon shift of the Jalisco Technical High School Nº46 participated in the 2015-2016 cycle. Self-completed questionnaires evaluated socioeconomic variables, physical activity habits, stage of change (Transtheoric Model), constructs of the Social Cognitive Theory and five eating habits: consumption of fruits and vegetables, natural water, dairy products, sugary drinks and processed foods ; As well as anthropometric variables. The intervention group had twelve workshops on healthy eating habits and two sessions for parents. The control group received three sessions of nutritional information. All variables were measured again at the end of the intervention to evaluate results in the short term and three months later to know results in the medium term.
The Atkins Diet Modified (ADM) is the best alternative treatment for drug-resistant epilepsy, There is a high prevalence worldwide , especially in Latin American countries, including Mexico. Low income earners, many of which do not have a social security, must meet the high costs by Antiepileptic Drugs (AEDS), which in addition should be used in conjunction or combination therapy, because monotherapy is insufficient . The diet adkins makes some changes in the traditional food habits by others that are accessible and not necessarily expensive, whose mechanism allows for better control of the seizures.
Background: Detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) is important due to its high prevalence and its medical and economic implications. Purpose: A systematic review of the diagnostic performance of stress echocardiography (Echo), SPECT, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), CT Perfusion (CTP) and PET versus invasive coronary angiography (ICA) or fractional flow reserve (FFR) using hierarchical summary ROC (HSROC) methods. Data Sources: MEDLINE, EMBASE and SCOPUS for literature published in English or Spanish from January 1970 to December 2015. Study Selection: For inclusion, studies had to meet the Cochrane guidelines, had to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity methods, and use ICA and/or FFR. Only those studies with STARD methodology ≥60% were included. Data Extraction: Ten investigators extracted patient and study characteristics and 4 resolved any disagreements.
Aim. To compare the outcome of preoperative administration of single-dose ketorolac, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug and placebo on postoperative pain in teeth with irreversible pulpitis and apical periodontitis.
The aim of this non-dispensing fitting study is to evaluate the short term lens fit, vision performance of three monthly replacement sphere lenses.
