There are about 966 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Peru. 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 preschool stage has been identified as an important moment for the study of factors associated with obesity. The worrying national situation of overweight in children from 3 to 5 years old, the increase in consumption of ultra-processed foods nationwide that is associated with the increase of the body mass index at the national level, the reduced national scientific evidence regarding the effectiveness of interventions in promoting healthy habits, as well as the lack of tools for mothers of preschool children in nutrition and physical activity, make interventions necessary in this area. On the other hand, currently, users worldwide are installing fewer applications and, although they spend more time using mobile applications, they are limited to a handful. Therefore, developing a native mobile application that is highly consumed is very difficult and expensive. For this reason, progressive web apps emerge as an attractive alternative for users given its attractive features, cross-platform interface, lower development cost and a growing demand for such applications. Thus, this research seeks to explore a novel way to promote healthy habits in preschoolers and check their effectiveness. In this way, a precedent could be set in the use of technologies in health promotion that could be extended to other age groups.
Clinical study in which researchers want to learn more about the safety profile of MESIGYNA used as a medication in routine clinical practice to prevent pregnancy. In order to find this out researchers will collect historic and treatment related data during initial visit and follow-up visits of adult women in reproductive age in the Peruvian population at the outpatient clinic. Mesigyna is a combined injectable birth control medication (norethindrone ethanate (50 mg) and estradiol valerate (5 mg)) for women given monthly.
endTB-Q Clinical Trial is a Phase III, randomized, controlled, open-label, non-inferiority, multi-country trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of two new, all-oral, shortened regimens for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) with fluoroquinolone resistance.
Isoniazid preventive therapy (IPT) reduces the risk of tuberculosis in 60%. Young children are at higher risk of developing severe forms of TB, though this can be prevented with a full course of IPT. Preliminary data indicate that 60% of eligible children start IPT, and 30% complete it. Furthermore, children can be exposed to more than one case of TB in the household. Adults exposed to TB in the household setting are not necessarily aware of their risk. Uncertainties in the decisions of staff to prescribe IPT and limited health literacy among caretakers and families contribute to this. The investigators will determine the efficacy of an intervention package to increase IPT adherence and completion among children < 5 years old exposed to TB in the household. The investigators will assess the efficacy of the intervention by 1) measuring IPT completion at 6 months after treatment initiation and by 2) determining adherence to IPT by measuring isoniazid in urine at weeks 2, 8 and 24 in a random sample of 40 children (20 in each arm). The investigators will measure fidelity and reach, and acceptability among caretakers and health staff. The intervention package will consist of: 1) educational booklet for caretakers explaining why IPT needs to be given 2) a children's storybook, with weekly installments, over the 6-month course of IPT as a non-monetary incentive and 3) short messages services (SMS) reminders delivered to the caretaker for the weekly pick-up
Randomized controlled study that will evaluate the effect of a text message-based strategy to improve retention in HIV care.
A global study to assess the efficacy and safety of durvalumab in combination with bevacizumab or durvalumab alone in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma who are at high risk of recurrence.
This is a randomized, multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled, global, Phase III study to determine the efficacy and safety of durvalumab + Chemoradiotherapy versus Chemoradiotherapy alone as treatment in Women With Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate comparability of the ORR in patients with previously untreated, advanced stage FL who receive GP2013-treatment to patients who receive MabThera-treatment.
Family planning and the use of contraceptive methods are of the main strategies to reduce maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality, because they can prevent unplanned pregnancies, teenage pregnancies and abortions in dangerous conditions. It is also a tool that contributes to development as it improves children's health, improves access to early childhood education, empowers women and contributes to reducing poverty as it improves economic conditions. Currently the use of modern contraceptive methods has increased worldwide, in Latin America and the Caribbean the use of modern contraceptive methods has remained at 66.07% from 2008 to 2015. However, the number of women who do not want to get pregnant and that do not use a contraceptive method is still high - 214 million women of childbearing age in developed countries. In our country according to the ENDES 2016 survey, the number of women who used a contraceptive method decreased by 0.7 percent compared to 2012, of which 54.3 percent used some modern contraceptive method and 21.9 percent some method traditional. The unmet demand for family planning in 2016 was 6.0%, affecting mainly women from the lowest poverty quintile (7.4%) and those living in rural areas (6.8%). Of the women who were surveyed and did not use a contraceptive method, 80.6% did not talk about family planning either at home or in a health facility in the last 12 months. Only 16.3% of non-users were women who attended a health facility and received information on family planning. Through this study the investigators propose the design and evaluation of an interactive platform to promote modern contraceptive methods.
This project involves adapting 3 new intervention components, and then testing them, in combination with a multi-level, community-based intervention, to promote HIV prevention and sexual health among men who have sex with men and transgender women in Lima, Peru. The total intervention has a community-based intervention and a systems-level intervention at the hospital where people living with HIV get care and medications.
