There are about 450 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Uganda. 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 purpose of the study is to Evaluate the Effect of Ticagrelor versus Placebo in Reducing the Rate of Vaso-Occlusive Crises in Paediatric Patients with Sickle Cell Disease
In this retrospective cohort study, we mapped the care cascades for both Hypertension and HIV within a HIV program in Uganda with the goal of identifying opportunities for developing contextually appropriate integrated care models, .
This phase II clinical trial studies the side effects of pomalidomide and how well it works in treating patients with Kaposi sarcoma and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Biological therapies, such as pomalidomide, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop tumor cells from growing and it may also block the growth of new blood vessels necessary for tumor growth.
Randomized, placebo-controlled trial of the effect of 84 days of daily iron supplementation on iron status, gut microbiome profile, infectious disease frequency, and HIV disease severity in moderately anemic [hemoglobin 9 - <11 g/dL (6-59 mo); hemoglobin 9 - < 11.5 g/dL (5 -12 years)], HIV-infected Ugandan children between the ages of 6 mos and 12 years.
The investigators will conduct a stepped wedge cluster-randomized controlled trial in maternity care facilities in Uganda to evaluate the impact of the provision of a reliable light source on the quality of delivery care provided. The facility-level intervention is the installation of a "Solar Suitcase", a complete solar electric system providing essential lighting and power for charging phones and small medical devices and a fetal doppler. The intervention will be rolled-out sequentially to all facilities over two time periods, in a randomized order.
This study will evaluate the pharmacokinetic properties of rilpivirine and darunavir when used in combination with etonogestrel
Through close collaboration with the Ugandan Ministry of Health, the investigators plan to provide PrEP for HIV-negative members of HIV serodiscordant couples by launching PrEP delivery within 12 public ART clinics in Kampala, Uganda. Intervention delivery will be launched in a staggered fashion among clinics through a stepped wedge cluster randomized trial providing a rigorous research opportunity to measure the effect of the intervention on PrEP and ART initiation and adherence. To measure these outcomes using clinic records and biomarkers, the program will enroll approximately 1440 HIV serodiscordant couples. Additionally, the program will collect qualitative and quantitative data to determine if PrEP-taking is a modeled behavior that facilitates ART use and characterize the way that PrEP and ART use interact within couples and estimate the programmatic costs of the integrated PrEP and ART strategy.
Guided by Social Cognitive and Asset theories as well as Behavioral Economics (BE) principles,the proposed RCT is carefully designed to test the additive contributions of savings-led microfinance beyond traditional HIV risk reduction (HIVRR) alone in decreasing biologically confirmed STIs, including HIV, improving high risk behavioral outcomes, while concurrently reducing income from sex work. Working within established health care- and outreach-based settings, we will randomly assign 990 FSWs to one of three study arms (11 town centers each): (1) a control arm comprising treatment as usual (TAU) for FSWs (quarterly 2-3 hour health education sessions, HIV testing services, and STI screening), bolstered with 4 evidence-based sessions of HIVRR provided by local providers (n=330 ); or (2) a treatment arm including TAU, 4 sessions of HIVRR, combined with receipt of a matched savings account (HIVRR+S) to be used on short-term and/or long term consumption and skills development per a participant's discretion/choice (n=330); or (3) a treatment arm including TAU, 4 sessions of HIVRR, combined with a matched savings account for short-term and/or long term consumption and skills development, plus 6 sessions of financial literacy with integrated BE principles (e.g., delay discounting, economic utility, information salience, and loss aversion), and 8 mentoring sessions for supportive transition to options for alternative income (HIVRR+S+FLM) (n=330).
This study applies an iterative user-centred design approach involving frontline birth attendants to create a mobile application ("HBB Prompt") to improve skills retention after initial newborn stabilization training through the Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) program. HBB Prompt will then be piloted at one site after HBB training and skills retention will be compared with a control site without HBB Prompt after HBB training.
The project seeks to test the integration of Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Groups within Care Group projects and investigate whether the treatment of maternal depression with Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Groups improves the adoption of nutrition-related behaviors that can reduce stunting in the Kitgum District in northern Uganda. A secondary aim is to examine whether the participation in the care groups will also result in remission of depression as a non-specific therapeutic effect although it may not be intended as an antidepressant treatment.
