There are about 37 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Sudan. 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.
Gum Arabic is a naturally produced gummy exudate from Acacia Senegal tree. It's a complex polysaccharide with proven prebiotic properties. Through its effect on intestinal bacteria, it's expected to reduce systemic levels of toxic bacterial metabolites and reduce inflammatory markers.By increasing fecal bacteria mass it's also expected to reduce blood urea level. These changes are potentially beneficial to hemodialysis patients who suffer from disturbed intestinal flora and a chronic inflammatory status. The investigators hypothesize that supplementing the diet of hemodialysis patients with Gum Arabic for four weeks would reduce inflammatory markers, increase total anti-oxidant capacity and reduce blood urea concentration.
Kidney transplantation is the best available treatment option for patients with end stage renal disease. However, kidney transplantation requires life-long use of immunosuppressive medication. Because of the high cost of these medications we need to carefully evaluate the cost-effectiveness of each drug regimen, especially in low-middle income countries. The objective of this clinical trial is to compare the efficiency and cost of two immunosuppressive protocols after living donor kidney transplantation: (1) antithymocyte globulin, tacrolimus, azathioprine and prednisolone versus (2) basiliximab, tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil and prednisolone.
This is an open label, randomized non comparative phase II clinical trial conducted on parallel groups, to assess the safety and efficacy of the combination of Paromomycin (20 mg/kg/d) IM for 14 days and Miltefosine (allometric dosing) oral for 42 days, and a combination of AmBisome® (20 mg/kg total dose) IV over 7 days and Miltefosine oral for 28 days (allometric dosing) for the treatment of PKDL patients in Sudan.

FEVRIER study is an observatory of hospitalizations in cardiology units in sub-Saharan Africa.
Oxidative processes increased in patients with renal failure and especially patients with end stage renal failure on dialysis. Oxidative stress plays a role in renal damage and also on cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, which can accelerate renal damage. Gum Arabic is claimed to have antioxidant effect and this will decrease the harmful effect of the free radical on patient on hemodialysis. In this study investigators are aiming to see the effect of Gum Arabic on Oxidative Stress and inflammatory markers in patients on regular hemodialysis.
Assessment of the long-term outcome of combined ipsilateral liver lobe devascularization (ILAD) and alcohol injection of the large hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC): single center non-randomized trial.
Assessment of the long-term outcome of percutaneous ethanol alcohol injection (PEI) for the large and unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma: single center non-randomized trial.
Assessment of short-term outcomes of ipsilateral lobe arterial devascularization of the large hepatocellular carcinoma: single center non-randomized trial.
This is an open label, Phase III, randomized, controlled, parallel arm multicentre non-inferiority clinical trial to compare the efficacy and safety of two combination regimens of Miltefosine and Paromomycin with the standard SSG-PM for the treatment of primary adult and children VL patients in Eastern Africa.
