There are about 203 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Costa Rica. 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 this study is to analyze the effect of an interactive parent-child book reading intervention. The intervention includes two components: the provision of five children's books to parent-child dyads and information about how to practice interactive book reading. The investigators expect to find an effect of this intervention on a) infants' expressive vocabulary, b) reading activity, c) parental expectations and knowledge about language development and d) parental use of interactive book reading strategies.
Primary immunodeficiencies represent a underdiagnosed group of rare diseases which if diagnosed well and in time can be treated in an efficient manner and prevent complications that may affect the quality of patients life in an severe manner. Neither in Costa Rica nor in Central America studies or national registries regarding the prevalence and characterization of primary immunodeficiencies in adult patients exist up to now. This study reflects for the first time the epidemiologic situation of primary immunodeficiencies in a Central American country, characterizing adult patients diagnosed with primary and idiopathic immune disorders treated in two specialized immunodeficiency clinics in Costa Rica.
Determine the prevalence of homologous recombination repair (HRR) gene mutations in participants with mCRPC in Latin America (LatAm) between February 2021 and January 2022.
This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, antiviral activity, and pharmacokinetics of study drug RO7496998 (AT-527) compared to placebo in non-hospitalized adult and adolescent participants with mild to moderate coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the outpatient setting.
Passive immunotherapy is a therapeutic alternative used in a variety of infectious diseases including COVID-19. Equine polyclonal hyperimmune sera is a source of neutralizing antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 and a therapeutic alternative under investigation in COVID-19 patients. In the previous study NCT04610502 no significant variations were observed regarding efficacy and safety between two different pharmaceutical preparations of equine hyperimmune sera and adequate tolerability was reported with both investigational products. Formulations were produced through repeated immunization with viral recombinant proteins and contain either antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 S1 protein (S type) or a combination of viral proteins that included S1, N (nuclear), E (envelop) and M (membrane) (M type). Another investigation (NCT04494984) found that the administration of a pharmaceutical preparation similar to the S type produced clinical improvement in hospitalized patients with SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia, particularly those with severe disease. Aim: Evaluate the efficacy and safety of three different doses of an anti-SARS-CoV-2 hyperimmune equine serum formulation (S-type) as an addition to the standard therapeutic approach in adult hospitalized patients with a diagnosis of moderate or severe COVID-19, radiological findings consistent with pneumonia and a symptom onset period not exceeding 10 days. A total of 156 patients will be included and randomly divided into four groups, each group will receive a different dose of the investigational drug. On day 1, all participants will receive a single intravenous infusion containing the specified dose according to their assigned group. Clinical assessments, laboratory determinations that include: viral load, antibodies quantification, inflammatory and coagulation markers, cytokines levels as well as standard evaluations will be performed for each patient. Data will be collected for all groups on Days 0 to 7, 14 and 28 or at discharge after completion of treatment. The study will end for each participant on the day of discharge from the hospital.
This is a Phase III, open label, randomized, two-arm, multicenter study designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of atezolizumab plus lenvatinib or sorafenib versus lenvatinib or sorafenib alone in locally advanced or metastatic and/or unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) participants who have progressed following prior HCC treatment with atezolizumab and bevacizumab combination.
This is a clinical trial comparing an investigative accommodative IOL and two commercial IOLs in patients with cataracts undergoing primary cataract surgery.
Reports of the use of plasma from convalescent patients and purified immunoglobulin preparations in respiratory infections by various viral agents and SARS-CoV-2 in severely ill patients suggest that specific neutralizing antibodies may benefit their clinical course. During the previous SARS-CoV epidemic in 2003, preparations of hyperimmune equine serum were produced and demonstrated in vitro viral neutralization. These preparations were also successful in several animal models. Taking advantage of the important trajectory of our country in the study and use of equine hyperimmune serums with neutralizing antibodies for snake venom, preparations of hyperimmune serums against recombinant proteins of SARS-CoV-2 were produced through repeated immunization of horses, a first group of animals was inoculated with the "S" (Spike) protein of the virus and the second group with a mixture "M" of the S1 (Spike) proteins, the N (Nucleoprotein) protein and a construct with epitopes of the S1, E (Envelope) and M (Membrane) proteins, generating two different pharmaceutical preparations. Objective: Evaluate the efficacy and safety of two hyperimmune equine serum anti-Sars-CoV-2 ("S" and "M") formulations as an addition to the standard therapeutic approach for hospitalized patients with COVID-19 over 18 years of age with the presence of at least 2 risk factors and a symptom onset period not exceeding 10 days. A total of 52 patients will be included and randomly divided into two balanced groups. On day 1, all participants from each group will receive an intravenous infusion containing 10ml (one vial) of hyperimmune equine anti-Sars-CoV-2 serum labeled as A or B. Patients will be evaluated clinically, general laboratory, SARS-CoV-2 serologies, SARS-CoV-2 viral load and cytokines level as well as pulmonary ultrasound. Data will be collected for both groups on Days 0 to 7, 10 and 14 or discharge after completion of treatment. The study will end for each participant on the day of discharge from the hospital.
