There are about 42 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in El Salvador. 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.
Pragmatic randomized clinical trial comparing Iodine Povacrylex based on alcohol to Chlorhexidine also based on alcohol in efficacy and security to diminish frequency of surgical site infections in major abdominal elective clean contaminated wounds. Will be held in a third level university, high volume national public hospital in San Salvador, El Salvador.
The aim of the study is evaluate the effect of cinnamon powder (Cinnamomum verum) on the glycaemia and HbA1c (Glycohemoglobin) of type 2 diabetic Salvadoran patients, whose hypoglycemic treatment is only Metformin. To carry out this objective, subjects who agree to be part of the study will subjected to measurements of their body weight, height, body mass index, waist circumference, systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, capillary glucose (with glucose meter) every 2 weeks, and their glycohemoglobin (HbA1c) at the beginning and at the end of the study.
Study to Evaluate the Therapeutic Equivalence of Permethrin Cream 5%in the Treatment of Scabies.
The purpose of this academic-industrial partnership will compare the CryoPen® and thermoablator to traditional CO2-based cryotherapy for the treatment of cervical precancer in low and middle income countries (LMICs) and investigate whether the cure rates of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 2 and more severe diagnoses (CIN2+) with these devices are non-inferior compared to that of conventional cryotherapy. The results of this study will affect other research areas by serving as a springboard to exploring treatment alternatives that are amenable to low-resource settings and thus will reach the most vulnerable populations.
The purpose of this study is to test two innovative devices, the CryoPen® and thermocoagulator, against gas-based cryotherapy to determine whether the novel devices produce equivalent or improved destruction of cervical tissue compared to gas-based cryotherapy. Tissue destruction with single freeze versus double freeze treatments with the CryoPen and gas-based cryotherapy will also be compared.
This is an event driven Phase 3, prospective, randomized, open-label, blinded endpoint evaluation (PROBE) parallel group study in subjects with confirmed VTE. This study is designed to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of edoxaban and to compare the efficacy and safety of edoxaban against standard of care in pediatric subjects with confirmed VTE.
To determine the safety and tolerability of Oraxol as compared to IV paclitaxel in metastatic breast cancer
Scabies is an infestation of the skin by the human itch mite (Sarcoptes scabiei). Diagnosis of scabies is made based on clinical symptoms, such as nocturnal itching, and appearance and distribution of the rash. Definitive diagnosis includes the microscopic identification of the mite, mite eggs, or mite fecal matter in the skin. Topical permethrin is considered the drug of choice for the treatment of scabies. It is a synthetic pyrethroid that is safe for use in adults and children 2 months and older. This study will evaluate the therapeutic equivalence of a generic permethrin cream 5% to Elimite® in the Treatment of Scabies.
Adequate nutrition during the first years of life is essential to reach full body and brain development potential. Children under the age of 5 in Central America and El Salvador suffer from micronutrient deficiencies. In El Salvador, ~ 20% of children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic undernutrition which is reflected in low length-for-their age Z-scores and anemia. This trial will examine the impact on health and growth in young children that will receive either a 21 micronutrient fortified cereal/legume mix manufactured in Guatemala or the current standard of nutritional care. The ultimate goal is to identify other feasible and effective alternatives to prevent micronutrient deficiencies through culturally acceptable vehicles.
This evaluation seeks to assess the impact of a training program on childcare center environments and child/caregiver wellbeing in El Salvador. Through a longitudinal, randomized control trial, over 200 childcare centers participating in the program will be assigned to various treatment arms receiving different components of the program. A community comparison cohort will also be enrolled.
