There are about 3238 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 primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of intrathecal (IT) administration of SHP611 on gross motor function, using the Gross Motor Function Classification in Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (GMFC-MLD) compared with matched historical control data in children with metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD).
End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is a world public health problem, with high morbidity and mortality. Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of mortality in ESRD; uremic toxin retention and inflammation are considered non-traditional risk factors, as they have an active role in atherosclerosis and vascular calcification pathogenesis in dialysis patients. Uremic toxins may be generated by internal protein metabolism, however, some toxins that can't be efficiently eliminated by dialysis such as indoxyl sulphate and p-cresyl sulphate (protein bound toxins), are generated by the microbial metabolism in the large intestine by proteolytic bacteria, and may diffuse easily through the intestinal lumen, as a leaky gut characterizes kidney disease. The gut has been recognized as a potential source of inflammation in ESRD patients; accumulation of nitrogen compounds, presence of gastrointestinal symptoms, dietary changes and multiple drugs and supplements use, stimulates microbiota alterations as bacterial overgrowth and translocation. These phenomena, may active the immune system, promoting local and systemic inflammation, which in turn has negative effects increasing endothelial dysfunction, muscle catabolism, insulin and erythropoietin resistance, and decreases appetite. Some methods have been proposed to decrease inflammation and uremic toxin accumulation, as more efficient dialysis and anti-inflammatory drugs; however, some of them have limited efficacy and high cost. Nutritional treatments focused on modifying intestinal environment, as pre- and probiotics have promising effects by altering production and absorption of uremic toxins and decreasing inflammation; nevertheless, there is scarce information regarding its use and their role in ESRD, particularly in peritoneal dialysis, which is a widely used therapy in México. Furthermore, there is no clinical study comparing the effectiveness of prebiotics, probiotics, and symbiotics on serum concentrations of uremic toxins and inflammation in ESRD patients. It is possible that the administration of a nutritional supplement of probiotics and/or prebiotics decreases the serum concentrations of uremic toxins and inflammation markers in ESRD patients on automated peritoneal dialysis compared to placebo.
Dry eye syndrome is a common eye disease that affects 1 to 2 out of 10 persons around the planet. One common cause of this disease is the meibomian gland dysfunction. Meibomian glands are very small glands located at the rim of the eyelids that produce an oily substance that prevents the evaporation of tears. When these glands are compromised, the tear film evaporates quickly and the eyes dry up. This disease presents as eye irritation, foreign body sensation, inflammation, etc. The treatment of choice for MGD is eyelid massage and warm compresses 2 times a day. However, these treatments not always work perfectly, and as a result, patients find it hard to follow doctor's orders. Another kind of treatment is thermal therapy. There are several devices that are designed to apply heat on the eyelids, such as Lipiflow, MiBo Thermoflo, and Blephasteam. In this study, we want to find out whether thermal therapy with MiBo Thermoflo works better than warm compresses and eyelid massage use in the treatment of dry eye caused by MGD. To do this, we will select several patients and will assign them randomly to either the group with thermal therapy with MiBo Thermoflo or to the group with warm compresses and eyelid massage. The Mibo group will receive 3 sessions of thermal therapy at 2 weeks interval and the control group warm compresses and eyelid massage 2 times per day. All subjects will have a follow up of 24 weeks and we will compare results for both groups at the end of the study.
A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial of effect of allopurinol or febuxostat to prevent contrast induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI)
Background: Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) is the most common leukemia in the occidental countries. Until now, it is considered a chronic disease without a cure. The development of new molecular therapies have showed that the cure may be an option. This protocol propose a triple sequential therapy with three direct therapies for the leukemic cell: an inhibitor of Bruton´s tyrosine kinase (ibrutinib), a second generation monoclonal antibody versus CD20 (obinutuzumab) and a BCL-2 inhibitor (venetoclax) as treatment of first or second line in CLL. Objective: Negativize the minimal residual disease and by this way obtain longer survivals (overall survival and relapse free survival). Design: This is a multicenter, longitudinal, experimental, open, non-randomized and non-comparable study coordinated by the "Grupo Cooperativo de Hemopatías Malignas" situated on Hospital Angeles Lomas in Huixquilucan, México. The study, is a phase II clinical study that will employ three target therapy drugs in sequencing phases. It will start with a BTK inhibitor as induction, later an anti-CD20 will be used for consolidation and it will end with a BH3 analog as maintenance for one year. The primary outcome is the negativization of minimal residual disease.
The primary goal of this study is to assess the impact of an innovative strategy to prevent undernutrition and obesity in early childhood in children 0-24 months in Mexico. This study is designed to evaluate the impact of promoting adequate infant an young child feeding practices and the use of SQ-LNS (Small Quantity Lipid-Based Nutrient Supplements) on the nutritional status of infants and young children. The study will be conducted in peri-urban areas of Tepic, Nayarit in Mexico in conjunction with the Hospital Infantil de México Federico Gómez and the Nayarit Secretariat of Health.
This is a randomized, double-blinded, two-arm, clinical study. This study is expected to last for approximately 6 months, comprised of 4-8 weeks of enrollment period, 28 days of treatment and 3 months of follow up. The enrollment will be completed prior to the beginning of initial treatment. The study will be closed when 48 subjects have completed the study. The enrollment will be randomized 1:1 to Neurocytotron treatment or mock treatment (placebo). Upon the completion of the study period, the placebo group will receive treatment, if the study results show benefits to patients. The placebo group will not receive treatment with Neurocytotron, unless the group assigned to the treatment shows positive results. In the design, the 3-month follow-up period is sufficient because 100% of the patients are current patients of the research centers; therefore, patient safety will be continuously controlled after the study is closed.
This study will collect data on bleeds and data related to quality of life in people with severe congenital (a disease existing from birth) haemophilia A and B, with or without inhibitors. The aim for the study is to look at the number of bleeds when on usual treatment for haemophilia. Participants will be asked to keep an electronic diary to track the number of bleeds and the treatment of their bleeds. Participants will be asked to wear an activity tracker on their wrist to capture their level of activity every day for up to 12 weeks. While taking part in this study, participants will keep getting their usual treatment as given to them by their doctor. All study visits at the clinic are done in the same way as the participants are used to. In the time between the participants' visits to the clinic, the study staff at the clinic may call or email the participant. The study will last for about 1½ years.
The reason for this study is to compare the study drug LY900014 to insulin lispro (Humalog) in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D).
The purpose of the trial is to assess the efficacy and safety of tirzepatide taken once a week to insulin glargine taken once daily in participants with type 2 diabetes and increased cardiovascular risk. The study will last about 108 weeks and may include up to 30 visits.
