There are about 3144 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 current epidemic of obesity relates to the transition from traditional to industrialised diets. The present project investigates the effect on body energy of recommending the consumption of traditional "home meals", which may be a useful recommendation against obesity. A randomized controlled trial design is applied assigning participants to a recommendation of consuming during 12 weeks either "home meals" or "healthy meals." Frequency of consumption of energy-dense foods and of exercise is monitored throughout the intervention; weight and body fat are measured at baseline and at four-week intervals. The hypothesis is that consuming more frequently "home meals" reduces at least as much weight and adiposity as "healthy meals".
The prevalence of arterial hypertension has remained the same in the last 5 years, however, almost 50% of the population continues without an adequate adjustment according to the National Health Survey of the Midway 2016. It has been shown that the variability of blood pressure (VBP) during 24 h and visit-visit is associated with cardiovascular diseases (CVD) over the effect of blood pressure (BP) itself. On the other hand, arterial stiffness is well known as an independent factor of CVD risk and for its evaluation the ambulatory arterial stiffness index (AASI) has been proposed. AASI and the VPA obtained through an evaluation by ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM) individual of 24 h. Dapagliflozin is an inhibitor of the sodium-glucose cotransporter type 2 (iSGLT2) for the treatment of diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM2) that promotes natriuresis and osmotic diuresis, which produces a decrease in plasma volume and a decrease in BP. The aim of ths study is to evaluate the effect of dapagliflozin on VBP and AASI in individuals with stage I hypertension whitout DM2. The investigators hypothesis is that the administration of dapagliflozin decreases the VBP and AASI in individuals with stage I hypertension whitout DM2.
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is common in Mexico, while morbidity and mortality is high. Drug therapy can relieve angina pain and stabilize plaque, but it is not able to re-flow a coronary artery. Balloon angioplasty and/or stent placement, re-establishes coronary blood flow; however, the risk of re-stenosis and/or development of new coronary events remains latent. Endothelial damage, reflected by the degree of endothelial dysfunction, inflammation and oxidative stress, promotes atherogenesis, which plays a central role in the pathophysiology of CAD. These mechanisms have been studied in animal models; however, it is widely unknown whether it influences the coronary circulation in humans. Therefore the present study explores the impact of an intracoronary profile of biomarkers of endothelial dysfunction, inflammation and oxidative stress on the prognosis of coronary remodeling and new adverse cardiovascular events in patients with chronic stable coronary syndrome undergoing angioplasty and stent placement.
A 46-week study to compare the efficacy of relamorelin with that of placebo in participants with diabetic gastroparesis (DG). At the end of the 40-week Treatment Period, participants will either continue on relamorelin or placebo for 6 additional weeks.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of risankizumab in subjects with ulcerative colitis (UC) in subjects who responded to induction treatment with rizankizumab in a prior AbbVie study of risankizumab in UC. This study consists of three sub-studies: Substudy 1 is a 52-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled maintenance study; Substudy 2 is 52-week, randomized, exploratory maintenance study; and Substudy 3 is an open-label long-term extension study for subjects who completed Substudy 1 or 2.
A multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of maintenance and long-term treatment administration of upadacitinib, an orally administered Janus kinase 1 inhibitor, in adult participants with Crohn's Disease.
Diabetes Mellitus (DM) affects patients' quality of life in different dimensions. Therefore, it is considered a priority to design and create specialized intervention programs in order to prevent and decrease complications. The peer support program studies have shown to Increase adherence to treatment and the proportion of patients with adequate long-term metabolic control. The benefits that these programs bring are the social and emotional support in the daily management of the disease through shared experiences and communication in a continuous way. There are only a few peer support programs in Mexico, thus it is required to investigate the effects of their implementation in our environment to promote empowerment and maintain long-term lifestyle changes. The present study has the objective to enhance self-care behaviors and health empowerment in patients with diabetes through peer support.
The trial is conducted in North America. The aim of the trial is to assess the safety of turoctocog alfa under conditions of routine clinical care in patients with haemophilia A in Mexico
The purpose of this study is to investigate the long-term safety and efficacy of risankizumab in the treatment of moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of filgotinib in participants who have completed one of the parent studies of filgotinib in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
