There are about 214 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Dominican Republic. 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.
This study aims to conduct a 12-month randomized controlled trial to adapt the mobile app, WiseApp, and a smart pill dispenser for Spanish-speaking people living with HIV (PLWH) in the New York City (NYC) area and La Romana, Dominican Republic (DR). The study will assess the efficacy and sustainability of WiseApp as well as identify barriers with its widespread use among Spanish speakers. With disproportionately high rates of HIV in the New York City area and the Dominican Republic, this project seeks to identify distinct contextual factors related to Spanish speaking people living with HIV and increase the likelihood of engagement with technology and improvements in clinical outcomes.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the design concept and safety profile of a first in human fluid accommodating intraocular lens (FAIOL).
The purpose of this study is to better characterize and understand the population of patients with ambulatory or acutely decompensated heart failure in the American continent, getting to know their sociodemographic, clinical and paraclinical characteristics
This is a randomized, placebo-controlled study that is being done to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of two doses of the HIL-214 vaccine compared to a placebo. The study will enroll 3000 children who will be 5 months of age at the time of the first dose study vaccine. The second dose of study vaccine will be given 28 days after the first dose.
The POWER-PAD-1 Study is a first-in-human evaluation of the safety and performance of the Pulse Peripheral Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL) Balloon Catheter to enroll up to twenty (20) subjects.
Adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1 DM) tend to have poor metabolic control. There are no mobile applications in our language in our environment, and patients are accessible in addition to the difficulties involved in these manual calculations. One way to bridge the knowledge gaps in T1 DM self-management is by using technology to optimize metabolic control and reduce the risks of associated comorbidities, with a mobile application that helps optimize decision-making in self-management. This research aims to help people with type 1 diabetes to change the glycemic blood levels and to be able to calculate the food together with the amount of insulin with food from the region. To evaluate the acceptability and effectiveness of the application, the investigators will carry out a pilot evaluation test. The participants in this pilot test will be 20 people between 14 and 18 years old with T1DM, users of the pediatric diabetology service of the National Institute of Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Nutrition (INDEN).
Early diagnosis of LC in the asymptomatic stage through intentional screening programs and/or incidental pulmonary nodule identification and follow-up are known to improve outcomes significantly. There are large gaps in the screening and early detection of LC, especially in LMIC - driven by multifactorial aspects, including a variety of socioeconomic and infrastructural factors, mainly due to limitations in the required network of specialized human resources and technical capacity. Identifying LC at an early stage allows for treatment that is more likely to be curative, thereby improving survival. The present study aims to characterize the lung nodule journey in different hospitals/clinics across Latin America, describing the use of health resources, time to diagnosis, stage at diagnosis, and time to treatment depending on the source of nodule identification in two different cohorts (retrospective and prospective).
This study is a 6-month, prospective, comparative, multicenter, bilateral, parallel group, randomized (2:1), subject/evaluator masked clinical investigation of the investigational mDCB00 IOL as compared to the DCB00 IOL. The study will be conducted at up to 8 sites in countries where both the investigational and control lenses are approved for market and/or for evaluation in a clinical study and will include a total of up to 200 subjects. Subjects will be randomly assigned to receive either the test lens or the control lens in both eyes.
A prospective, nonrandomized, open label study to evaluate the safety and IOP lowering effectiveness of the Streamline Surgical System, in patients with mild-to-moderate open angle glaucoma undergoing cataract surgery.
Study to determine immunogenicity and safety following administration of 2 doses of novel oral poliovirus vaccine type 2 (nOPV2) given at different intervals of 1 week or 2 weeks or the standard 4-week interval in infants
