There are about 1838 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Puerto Rico. 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.
This study will look at the change in the participant's body weight from the start to the end of the study. This is to compare the effect on body weight in people taking semaglutide (a new medicine) and people taking "dummy" medicine. In addition to taking the study medicine, the participant will have talks with study staff about healthy food choices, how to be more physically active and what else the participant can do to lose weight. Overweight and obesity is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Therefore, weight loss has shown to have a beneficial impact on the blood sugar levels. The participant will either get semaglutide or "dummy" medicine - which treatment the participant get is decided by chance. The participant will need to take 2 injections at the same time once a week. The study medicine is injected with a thin needle in a skin fold in the stomach, thigh or upper arm. The study will last for about 1.5 years
This study will look at the change in participants' body weight from the start to the end of the study. The weight loss in participants taking semaglutide (a new medicine) will be compared to the weight loss of participants taking "dummy" medicine. In addition to taking the medicine, participants will have talks with study staff about healthy food choices, how to be more physically active and what you can do to lose weight. Participants will either get semaglutide or "dummy" medicine - which treatment participants get, is decided by chance. Participants will need to take 1 injection once a week. The study medicine is injected with a thin needle in a skin fold in the stomach, thigh or upper arm. The study will last for about 1.5 years. Participants will have 15 clinic visits and 10 phone calls with the study doctor.
The purpose of this study is to compare the immunogenicity and describe the safety of MenACYW conjugate vaccine and MENVEO® when both are administered concomitantly with routine pediatric vaccines to healthy infants and toddlers in the US. Primary objectives: - To demonstrate the non-inferiority of the immune response after a 4-dose series of MenACYW conjugate vaccine compared to a 4-dose series of MENVEO® when given concomitantly with routine pediatric vaccines to infants and toddlers 6 weeks to 15 months of age. - To demonstrate the non-inferiority of the immune response after 3 doses of MenACYW conjugate vaccine compared to 3 doses of MENVEO when given concomitantly with routine pediatric vaccines to infants at 2, 4, and 6 months of age. Secondary objective: • To demonstrate the non-inferiority of the immune responses of the routine pediatric vaccines administered concomitantly with MenACYW conjugate vaccine as compared with MENVEO to infants and toddlers 6 weeks to 18 months of age. Observational objective: • To describe the safety profile of MenACYW conjugate vaccine and MENVEO when administered concomitantly with routine pediatric vaccines in healthy infants and toddlers.
This study will look at how a known study medicine N8-GP works in previously N8-GP treated people with haemophilia A. The aim is to look at how N8-GP works during regular use. Participants will get N8-GP. N8-GP has been tested in more than 200 people with haemophilia A for several years. Participants will get an injection of N8-GP into a blood vessel, one, two or three times weekly. Participants will get more doses if they bleed or if they will need a surgery. The study will last for about 2 years. Participants will have at least 9 visits with the study doctor. If participants agree to be in this study, they will get their first injection (in this study) at the first visit. Participants will also get an injection at visit 3, 5 and 7. Participants will be trained to give all other injections themselves. Participants must not use any clotting factors other than N8-GP or any anticoagulants (blood thinners) during the study.
Obesity is significantly higher in specific ethnic groups and, in particular, Hispanics. There is an urgent need to implement culturally-sensitive lifestyle interventions and educational programs to decrease the burden of obesity and obesity-related metabolic diseases in Hispanic populations. Accordingly, our overreaching goal is to tailor an existing and successful community-based program, Abriendo Caminos, to leverage effectiveness in promoting healthy nutrition and life-style behaviors among low income, low literacy Hispanic-heritage families. Our multi-function integrated project proposes to (a) adapt Abriendo Caminos for 6-18 year-old children from Mexican and Puerto Rican heritage in five different locations (California, Illinois, Iowa, Puerto Rico, and Texas) and (b) Train existing professionals (in Extension and community agencies) and future professionals (Hispanic university students) to meet the specific needs of this population. Our central hypothesis is that participation in a 6-week community-based program will prevent childhood obesity/maintain healthy weight by significantly increasing: (a) healthy dietary behavior patterns and basic knowledge of nutrition; (b) physical activity levels; and (c) the organization of collective/shared family mealtimes. The implementation of this culturally sensitive, workshop-based curriculum in different regions across the country will help to train the next generation of professionals in Extension and communities to deliver programs that meet the needs of Hispanic families. The integration of Hispanic college students in program implementation via an experiential learning course will further strengthen the program, as well as increase recruitment and retention of Hispanic students, increasing the capacity of Hispanic communities to meet their own needs in the future.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of investigational doses of once weekly dulaglutide when added to metformin in participants with type 2 diabetes with inadequate blood sugar control.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of mirikizumab in participants with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
A Phase II, Randomized, Multi-Center, Double-Blind, Comparative Global Study to Determine the Efficacy and Safety of Durvalumab in Combination With Olaparib for First-Line Treatment in Cisplatin-Ineligible Patients With Unresectable Stage IV Urothelial Cancer
This is a Phase 2b, multicenter, open-label study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of optimized doses of NBI-98854 administered once daily for 24 weeks in pediatric subjects with Tourette Syndrome.
This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of gantenerumab versus placebo in participants with early (prodromal to mild) AD. All participants must show evidence of beta-amyloid pathology. Eligible participants will be randomized 1:1 to receive either subcutaneous (SC) injection of gantenerumab or placebo. The primary efficacy assessment will be performed at the end of the double blind period at week 104. Participants will then be offered to enter into an open-label extension (OLE). Participants not willing to go to the OLE will participate in a long term follow-up period for up to 50 weeks after the last gantenerumab dose.
