NCT ID: NCT03578679 Recruiting - Pediculoses Clinical Trials

Treatment of Pediculosis (Head Lice) in Senegal

Start date: July 11, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This is a prospective single-arm interventional study evaluating Therapeutic efficacy of a combination of two pharmaceutical drugs, Azithromycin (AZIT) and Ivermectin (IVER) administered orally in the treatment of head lice infestations. In case of persistence of lice and / or nits on day 7, a second oral administration of combination Azithromycin + Ivermectin will be considered. The duration of the study period is 4 months, ie 1 month and ½ of inclusion and 2 months and ½ feedback. There will be a site initiation visit "site initiation visit" before inclusions at D-7, two monitoring visits and a closing visit "close out visit" at the end of the follow-up at 4 months.

NCT ID: NCT03567421 Recruiting - Stone, Kidney Clinical Trials

Ureteral Stenting After Ureteroscopy for Stone Treatment, A Global Perspective on Indications and Outcomes

Start date: June 7, 2018
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

Background: The exit strategy after ureteroscopy for stone treatment remains a topic for discussion. Current EAU guidelines on urolithiasis state that postoperative stenting is indicated in patients at increased risk of postoperative complications. Stenting is not considered necessary in all other cases, and after uncomplicated procedures. Objective: To analyse the postoperative ureteral stenting strategy in clinical practice looking at the indication, type of stents used and the duration of stenting after ureteroscopy for stone treatment. Furthermore, the investigators will examine in what setting the stents are being removed postoperatively. Study design: This study is a prospective, observational, international, multicentre registry study executed by uCARE. Study population: All patients >18 years with a ureter or renal stone who are planned for ureteroscopic treatment by semi-rigid and/or flexible ureteroscopy are eligible for this study.

NCT ID: NCT03540069 Recruiting - Cervical Cancer Clinical Trials

Reducing Barriers and Sustaining Utilization of a Cervical Cancer Screening Program in Rural Senegal

Start date: October 3, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This research project will investigate the determinants of cervical cancer screening uptake and sustained utilization in this region and develop and evaluate a context-specific peer education behavioral intervention to improve uptake. Research supports the effectiveness of peer education in increasing cancer screening rates but, currently, no cervical cancer screening peer education program specific to rural Senegal exists. To inform the participatory development of this program, the investigators will assess barriers and facilitators of screening at multiple levels: individuals (women aged 30 to 59), households (family or principle social unit of at-risk women), and the community (immediate village or neighborhood with common amenities of at-risk women). We hypothesize that a peer education program that adapts to changing contexts over time and is targeted at a multi-level audience will result in early, widespread uptake and sustained use of the VIA cervical cancer screening program. Study findings will inform programmatic planning in Kedougou and the peer education curriculum we develop can serve as a template for maximizing early impact of new cervical cancer screening services implemented in other areas of rural Senegal. Our long-term goal is to inform national-level policy to guide the implementation of cervical cancer screening programs in other rural Senegal regions.

NCT ID: NCT03474276 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Moderate Acute Malnutrition

Comparing Several Strategies to Manage Moderate Acute Malnutrition Among Children From 6 to 24 Months Old

Start date: January 31, 2018
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

The aim of this open-label randomized controlled trial conducted in four African countries (Madagascar, Niger, Central African Republic and Senegal) is to compare three strategies of renutrition for moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) in children based on modulation of the gut microbiota with enriched flours alone, enriched flours with prebiotics or enriched flours coupled with antibiotic treatment. Cognitive development of children (Senegal) will also be studied and compared.

Cohort Study on People Who Inject Drugs in Senegal

Start date: August 24, 2016
Study type: Observational

The main purpose of the CoDISEN cohort study is to propose a model of prevention and care for HIV and viral hepatitis adapted to the needs of people who inject drugs (PWID) in Dakar, Senegal.

NCT ID: NCT03394196 Recruiting - HIV-2 Infection Clinical Trials

RESIST-2: 2nd-line ART for HIV-2 Infection

Start date: July 4, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Prospective, longitudinal, open label, HIV-2 viral load and antiretroviral resistance informed 2nd-line ARV implementation study.

NCT ID: NCT03352986 Recruiting - Sickle Cell Disease Clinical Trials

Substudy of CADRE: for People With Extreme Phenotype: BIOCADRE

Start date: May 15, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

BIOCADRE is a CADRE substudy and aims to characterize more precisely the sickle cell patients with extreme phenotype.

NCT ID: NCT03303963 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Tuberculosis, Multidrug-Resistant

DIAgnostics for Multidrug Resistant Tuberculosis in Africa

Start date: May 4, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Recent advances in molecular diagnostics of tuberculosis, especially the GeneXpert Mycobacterium tuberculosis/Rifampicin test have reduced the time to diagnose Rifampicin Resistant Tuberculosis (RR-TB) but only rifampicin resistance is diagnosed, leading to presumptive diagnosis of resistance to isoniazid and maybe other drugs. Thus in low and middle income countries, most drug sensitivity testing relies on phenotypic drug resistance testing, which takes up to 4 months. In addition, currently, culture on monthly sputum samples is recommended by the World Health Organization for follow-up of Rifampicin Resistant Tuberculosis patients under treatment. Unfortunately, culture is often not locally available and samples need to be transported from field to culture laboratories. The associated transport delays lead to high rates of contamination and false negative culture, particularly in laboratories in low resource settings. Many gaps for the diagnosis and management of RR-TB patients still need to be addressed and the DIAMA project (DIAgnostics for Multidrug resistant tuberculosis in Africa) study aims to address some of them.

NCT ID: NCT03297190 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Nutritional Deficiency

Impact on Nutritional Practices: SMS and Interpersonal Communication

Start date: January 15, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This cluster randomized controlled study aims to add to the evidence base on mHealth interventions by assessing the main effects of delivering nutrition messages on key maternal, infant, and young child nutrition (MIYCN) behaviors and outcomes through three innovative behavior change strategies. The strategies compared will be: (i) an interpersonal communication strategy using the Tanzanian government's Mkoba wa Siku 1000 maternal, infant and young child nutrition (MIYCN) curriculum (MwS) through clinic- and community-based channels, (ii) the mNutrition SMS text messaging module of the government's Wazazi Nipendeni program, and (iii) the combination of both of these strategies (interpersonal and SMS messaging). They will be compared with the current standard of care in Tanzania. The goal will be to determine which has the greatest impact on key MIYCN and hygiene practices and care-seeking behaviors. It will be paired with a costing analysis so that these effects can be understood in the context of their costs.
