There are about 81 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Senegal. 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 SchistoSAM study is an open label, two-arm, individually-randomized controlled trial with a non-inferiority design, conducted in northern Senegal. The study aims at determining if the efficacy of one and of repeated courses of artesunate-mefloquine (AM) is respectively similar to or higher than that of a standard praziquantel (PZQ) treatment. Secondly, the study will assess if novel DNA- and antigen-based diagnostics are more accurate than microscopy in assessing antischistosomal treatment response.
Senegal plans a rapid scale up of HIV treatment for all people living with HIV, regardless of cluster of differentiation 4 (CD4) count or viral suppression. However, limited data exist on how to achieve sustained viral suppression outside of a controlled setting, and with significant barriers to effective antiretroviral therapy delivery, uptake, and adherence. The purpose of this study is to develop and assess the feasibility, fidelity, and cost-effectiveness of a universal coverage of Antiretroviral Treatment (ART) intervention among people living with HIV who are not virally suppressed in Dakar and Ziguinchor, Senegal.
The clinical trial phase 2b is designed to assess the safety and the specific immune response of the active ingredient (protein + adjuvant) in healthy and then in infected school children from 8 to 11 years of age with intestinal and/or urinary schistosomiasis, living in the Valley of the Senegal River, a highly endemic area for schistosomiasis.
Abstract: Background The current practice in Senegal is to use broad-spectrum antibiotics including amoxicillin and/or cotrimoxazole in case of non-malarial fevers. First-line treatment with doxycycline has cured such patients. The investgators aimed to determine the efficacy of a single dose of doxycycline compared to a 5-day amoxicillin course for the treatment of fever.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Prospective, longitudinal, open label, HIV-2 viral load and antiretroviral resistance informed 2nd-line ARV implementation study.
