There are about 2530 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.
MTN-035 is a multi-site, randomized-sequence, three-period, open label crossover study that will enroll approximately 210 participants randomized (1:1:1:1:1:1) to one of six sequences of rectal microbicide placebo product application.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the antiviral activity, clinical outcomes, safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic relationships of different oral dose levels of JNJ-53718678 in children greater than or equal to 28 days and less than or equal to 3 years of age with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) disease (hospitalized participants [Cohort 1] or outpatients [Cohort 2]).
This study will evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics and efficacy of baloxavir marboxil in healthy pediatric participants from birth to <1 year with influenza like symptoms
Convulsive status epilepticus (CSE) is a potentially devastating condition which can result in significant morbidity and mortality. Studies addressing status epilepticus in children are rare and there is a paucity of large randomised controlled trials in children looking at forms of drug treatment for SE. There is consistency worldwide in guidelines for first line treatment of CSE with benzodiazepines, with slight variations in type and route of administration of agents. Second line therapy usually entails phenobarbital or phenytoin parenterally. Both repeated phenobarbital loading doses and midazolam infusions have been shown to be effective and safe in the management of established convulsive SE, but there are no prospective randomized controlled trials comparing the two in children. Our study has been undertaken to review 2 existing, and routinely used, interventions for children presenting to our center with acute convulsive seizures. In order to permit comparable data to be collected we are randomly allocating these standard interventions prospectively. This is in order to compare the efficacy and safety of two treatment protocols (phenobarbital vs phenytoin and midazolam) both of which as stated are already part of existing standard protocols internationally and in South Africa. Parenteral phenobarbital is a safe, affordable and easy to use drug in the management of status epilepticus especially for poorly resourced communities where undertaking infusions may be unsafe, time consuming or unavailable. We hypothesize that repeated phenobarbital loading is as effective and safe, or more so, than phenytoin followed by midazolam infusion in the management of established and refractory childhood convulsive SE. If proven, then the former would be a viable option for all health care workers with access to intravenous routes (including Day hospitals) where infusions are unsafe, time consuming or unavailable.
The MTN-041 study is a multi-site exploratory study using focus group discussions (FGDs) and in-depth interviews (IDIs) to identify individual, interpersonal, social and cultural factors that may affect potential uptake of two safe and effective HIV prevention products, the monthly dapivirine (DPV) vaginal ring (VR) and daily oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), by pregnant and breastfeeding women in Africa.
Determine the acceptability and feasibility of a social media intervention among adolescents living with HIV who are transitioning to adult care in South Africa.
Prospective, randomised, controlled trial of a novel implant intended for use during surgical repair of lacerated Zone 2 flexor digitorum profundus tendons.
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
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of multiple doses of a human monoclonal antibody (BAY1093884) given under the skin in subjects with hemophilia A or B. This antibody is intended to protect from bleeds by inhibiting a substance (Tissue Factor Pathway Inhibitor, TFPI) that reduces the ability of the body to form blood clots.
This study aims to establish and present the prevalence figures and demographics of the co-morbidity of ADHD and DCD. It further aims to design an exercise intervention, to be utilised in the management of the symptoms of both conditions. Furthermore, it aims at establishing the efficacy of this exercise intervention, when compared with the current and most commonly used intervention, that is: neurostimulant drugs.
