There are about 2608 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in South Africa. 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.
International, Multicentre, Parallel-group, Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Phase III Study Evaluating the effect of Dapagliflozin on Exercise Capacity in Heart Failure Patients with Reduced Ejection Fraction (HFrEF)
International, Multicentre, Parallel-group, Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Phase III Study Evaluating the effect of Dapagliflozin on Exercise Capacity in Heart Failure Patients with Preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF)
This study will look at the change in body weight in people taking NNC0174-0833, liraglutide and "dummy" medicine, from the start to the end of the study. As well as taking the medicine, participants will have talks with study staff about healthy food choices, how to be more physically active and what participants can do to lose weight. Participants will either take NNC0174-0833, liraglutide or "dummy" medicine - which treatment participants get is decided by chance. Participants will need to take one injection once a week or once a day, depending on the treatment. The study medicine is injected with a thin needle in a skin fold in the stomach, thigh or upper arm. The study will last for about 8 months. Participants will have 12 clinic visits with the study doctor.
The investigators propose to conduct a phase 2 randomised (1:1) double-blind placebo-controlled trial of the dolutegravir-lamivudine-tenofovir fixed dose combination tablet daily with an additional 50 mg dose of dolutegravir/matching placebo taken 12 hours later in ART-naïve HIV-infected patients on rifampicin-based anti-tuberculosis therapy. The hypothesis is that virologic outcomes with standard dose dolutegravir-based ART will be acceptable in patients on rifampicin-based anti-tuberculosis therapy.
This will be the first study to evaluate the use of Nyaditum resae® as a potential agent for reducing antibiotic-associated gut dysbiosis in patients with drug-susceptible TB, and potentially improving clinical and microbiological markers of outcome
A randomised, double-blind, cross-over study to assess the analgesic effect of methoxyflurane at moderate high altitudes in a wilderness field setting. Phase IV, randomised, double-blind, cross-over clinical trial to evaluate the analgesic effect of methoxyflurane at moderate high altitudes in a wilderness field setting, in 24 healthy volunteers
Population mobility is common in South Africa, but important research gaps exist describing this mobility and its impact on engagement in HIV care, particularly among pregnant and postpartum women. Through this study, the investigators propose to test a smartphone application - CareConekta - to conduct essential formative work on mobility and evaluate this app as an intervention to facilitate engagement in HIV care during times of mobility. This work is critical to adapting CareConekta for widespread use, providing critical information about mobility during the peripartum period and the impact on engagement in HIV care, and piloting this intervention to improve engagement.
This phase II trial studies how well standard chemotherapy and radiation therapy given with or without paclitaxel and carboplatin work in treating human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive women with cervical cancer that has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, paclitaxel and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Radiation therapy to the pelvis destroys potential cancer cells in the pelvic area and significantly reduces the risk of tumor recurrence in the pelvic area. It is not yet known if giving chemotherapy and radiation therapy with or without paclitaxel and carboplatin, may work better in treating HIV-positive patients with advanced cervical cancer.
This is a randomized, multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled, global, Phase III study to determine the efficacy and safety of durvalumab + Chemoradiotherapy versus Chemoradiotherapy alone as treatment in Women With Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer
A randomised clinical trial to compare the clinical efficacy of multiple plastic stents to fully covered self expanding metal stents in the palliation of distal malignant biliary obstruction in patients with irresectable tumours.
