There are about 8094 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Brazil. 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 main purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of Tirzepatide (LY3298176) in participants with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and obesity.
The purpose of the study will be to compare the clinical effectiveness of bonded versus vacuum-formed retainers regarding their retention capacity; periodontal health; survival rates; and patients' perception after 12 months of removal of fixed appliances. The null hypotheses are that there is no difference between the retainers in relation to the aspects evaluated.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of Sodium Zirconium Cyclosilicate (SZC) on arrhythmia-related cardiovascular outcomes in participants on chronic hemodialysis with recurrent hyperkalemia.
Health professionals are extremely exposed to psychosocial risks, as they experience, in general, high levels of stress, anxiety, fatigue and suffering, due to the nature and location of their work. As a result, the health and well being of these professionals can be significantly compromised. In outbreaks of serious infectious diseases and pandemics, these risks become amplified and the health team is at greater risk of falling ill, presenting changes in mental health and psychological trauma, while caring for infected patients and becoming potential contaminants in their family and community. The objective is to study the mental health of professionals who work in Pediatric Intensive Care Units (PICUs) in Brazil, during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The primary outcome will be the prevalence of burnout in the team involved with the care of critically ill children. Secondary outcomes such as anxiety, depression, quality of professional life, compassionate fatigue and post-traumatic stress disorder will be measured. Possible associations between demographic, work and coping variables (social support and resilience) with mental and emotional health outcomes will be investigated, in an exploratory character. It is a multicenter, observational, longitudinal study, with a descriptive and exploratory analytical component. Data collection will be carried out through an electronic survey during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
The purpose of this study is to confirm the reproducibility that the MEDL score can be evaluated by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in the similar way as laparoscopy, the gold standard for the evaluation of the disease state of endometriosis, in order to establish the MEDL score, a new evaluation index for endometriosis using MRI. Approximately 70-90 patients with endometriosis diagnosed by imaging and who are candidates for fertility-preserving surgery will be recruited retrospectively or prospectively, and the disease status of endometriosis will be evaluated using preoperative MR images, laparoscopic surgery videos, etc. The relationship between the condition and clinical symptoms, such as pain, is also considered.
This is a prospective cohort study, observational, multicentre, single-arm, post-registration to assess the safety of the Adsorbed COVID-19 (Inactivated) Vaccine Sinovac / Institute Butantan.
As seen worldwide, cancer incidence is increasing in Latin America achieving an amount of 1.3 million new cases annually.1 In addition, it is expected that up to 70% of patients with cancer will experience pain2, one of the most distressing symptoms in patients with advanced cancer. And despite of advances in cancer therapies, opioids remain the mainstay treatment of cancer-related moderate-to-severe and end-of-life pain.3 However, concerns regarding opioid prescriptions have emerged for reasons like the risk of misuse and the possibility of cancer progression. In the last decades, an increase in consumption of opioids as well as in opioids-related deaths generating the so called 'opioid crisis'. This rise is mainly due to abuse / addiction of opioids. Consequently, oncologic patients are at risk for abuse, as well as for aberrant use, which can complicate the course of cancer treatment.4 5 Another feature of opioids use in cancer patients is that it may contribute to disease progression. Experimental studies suggest that opioids can may lead to immunosuppression and tumor progression or recurrence.6-8 On the other hand, retrospective analysis of clinical data shows conflicting results and trials are lacking.
COVID-19 has a variety of symptoms from asymptomatic respiratory dysfunction to death. Considering the pathophysiology of SARS-CoV-2 and its relationship with the neuroimmune system, response, autonomic balance, musculoskeletal and respiratory and neuropsychiatric symptoms presented by patients, the investigators highlight the potential use of non-invasive neuromodulation methods to assess the effectiveness of treating patients with COVID-19, as these techniques can be useful in the management of important clinical aspects in the functional recovery of individuals affected by the disease. The investigators intend to evaluate the effects of HD- tDCS to promote ventilatory weaning in patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and to improve the respiratory performance of those hospitalized in nursing beds for treatment of COVID - 19.
This work aims to assess cardiopulmonary function and quality of life in people with sequelae of pulmonary tuberculosis undergoing rehabilitation. It is an experimental clinical study, with evaluation before and after the intervention. Included participants will be randomized and divided into a control group and an intervention group. Quality of life is examined by two questionnaires and physical fitness by specific tests, before and after the intervention. The intervention is the realization of a supervised physical exercise protocol.
Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a common psychiatric condition, mostly treated with antidepressant drugs, which are limited for issues such as refractoriness, adverse effects and drug interactions, especially in the elderly population. In this context, the investigators investigate a non-pharmacological treatment known as recurrent transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) with the theta-burst stimulation (TBS) method for the treatment of geriatric depression. This treatment modality has almost no adverse effects and avoids the risk associated with polypharmacy, providing an interesting alternative to antidepressant treatments. Our aim is to evaluate TBS efficacy in the treatment of geriatric depression in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial.
