There are about 199 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.
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
This study is a multisite ,grouped test-negative case-control , phase Ⅳ clinical trial of an inactivated SARS-CoV-2 vaccine (CoronaVac) manufactured by Sinovac Research and Development Co., Ltd.The purpose of this study is to estimate the protective effectiveness of complete vaccination (measured ≥14 days after the second dose) of CoronaVac against symptomatic SARS-COV-2 infections ,COVID-19 hospitalizations and severe cases.
The overall objective of this study is to develop a feasible and acceptable mental health app which delivers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for depressed patients in the Dominican Republic. This proposal meets the research objectives of NIMH in delivering mental health care to populations with low literacy, and supporting health care systems in monitoring and improving the quality of mental health. In the proposed study, the investigators will upgrade, implement, and evaluate a depression treatment app and assess trained facilitators' capacity in managing participants' depression symptoms using the app. The investigators will conduct a randomized controlled trial (RCT) among 120 participants who screen positive for mild to moderate depression or anxiety on the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) or GAD- 7 via a university-based Covid mental health hotline. The app, El Buen Consejo Móvil (EBCM), will be downloaded to the participants' own Android phone. Participants will be randomized to receive the EBCM app with the functionality to connect individuals to one another via a facilitator-guided chat room (ECBM-G; n= 60) or to receive the same contents as an individualized facilitator-guided CBT program without the group functionality (ECBM-I; n=60). Recruitment and mixed-methods data collection will be conducted by phone, given current circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. Process outcomes will be evaluated for the trained facilitators. The primary outcomes for app users will be acceptability of the app and perceptions of social interactivity for those randomized to the group condition. Validated questionnaires will be administered to measure perceived emotional support, loneliness, and interactivity. Level of adherence and effectiveness, the secondary outcomes, will be assessed by frequency of interaction with the app, completion of treatment for either treatment modality, and change in depressive symptoms. The investigators hypothesize that the use of the app for guided self-help can be enhanced through group interaction. EBCM can result in increased access to care in low-income community settings where patients are not currently receiving treatment due to logistical barriers and the stigma of seeking care in a mental health care setting.
A parallel-group randomized clinical trial was conducted with 45 patients of the Orthodontic Clinic of Universidad Iberoamericana's (UNIBE) Postgraduate Unit. The study hypothesis was that motivational interview plus oral hygiene instructions would be more effective in maintaining long-term oral hygiene in comparison with conventional oral hygiene instructions alone. A computer-generated list of numbers created with Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) V21.0 was used to random allocate participants into the experimental or the control group. Monthly oral hygiene instructions and a G.U.M. kit were given to the sample. Additionally, the experimental group received motivational interviewing sessions by a trained periodontist. Simplified Oral Hygiene Index, Gingival Index, Periodontal Probing Depth and Bleeding on Probing were recorded at baseline, three and six months after the beginning of the study. Repeated-measures analysis of variance and chi-squared test were conducted.
This observational study, a multicenter retrospective cohort database study, carried out in two medical centers, Centro Medico Bournigal (CMBO) in Puerto Plata and Centro Medico Punta Cana (CMPC) in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, sought to determine whether Ivermectin, at a weekly orally dose of 0.2 mg/kg, is an effective pre-exposure prophylactic method (PrEP) for the spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), in the healthcare workers. The study began on June 29, 2020 and ended on July 26, 2020 (4 weeks).
This is a Phase 2, open label, maximal usage PK and safety study of ARQ-151 cream 0.3% in pediatric subjects (ages 2 to 5 years old) with plaque psoriasis:
The purpose of this double-blind, randomized, controlled study is to evaluate the efficacy, immunogenicity, reactogenicity and safety of an adjuvanted recombinant severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) trimeric spike (S)-protein subunit vaccine (SCB-2019) for the prevention of SARS-CoV-2-mediated COVID-19 in adult subjects 18 years of age and above.
TThe current understanding of dental caries has not been completely transferred into the clinical practice to control caries lesion progression (severity / activity) and the individual risk of caries. This situation led to the development of the CariesCare International CCI Caries Management System (2018), derived from ICCMS™- International Caries Classification and Management System (2012) and the ICDAS - International Caries Detection and Assessment System (2002) in a consensus among more than 45 cariologists, epidemiologists, public health professionals, researchers and cliniciansfrom all over the world. The consensus aimed to guide dentists and dental teams in clinical practice, facilitating the control of the caries process and the maintenance of oral health in their patients. The general lack of implementation of an updated management of dental caries is evident in Colombia, in the survey of 1094 clinicians, teachers and students, failures were reported to adopt related behaviours, motivation barriers (remuneration), opportunity (in terms of relevance, physical/infrastructure resources, time) and training. As an additional barrier, the Colombian Chapter of the Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future (ACFF), evidences the absence of a facilitating Oral Health Record (OHR), this situation lead to stablish a new Alliance between the Ministry of Health and Social Protection (MSPS) and the AFLC to develop an inter-institutional consensus at the national level, of a clinical history for diagnosis and management of lesions and caries risk. Finally, 55 institutions participated in this consensus, and we have just finished a pilot test of the forms to submit a proposal for national standardization from the MSPS. The aim of this multicentre case series is to assess after 3, 6 and 12 months in children oral health outcomes, caregivers' satisfaction and in dentists' process outcomes, after the implementation of the CCI system adapted for the COVID-19 era -non-aerosol generating procedures. Oral health outcomes will be evaluated in terms of: - Effectiveness of CCI to control bacterial plaque, caries progression and caries risk, and to achieve behavioural change in oral health in children. - Acceptance of CCI caries management adapted for COVID-19 through Treatment Evaluation Interventory in dentists, and in children/parents through satisfaction questionnaire. - Costs of CCI adapted for caries management, in economic terms, number and appointment time.
This is a Phase 2, open label, maximal usage PK and safety study of ARQ-151 cream 0.3% in pediatric subjects (ages 6 to 11 years old) with plaque psoriasis:
This study aims to demonstrate the efficacy of a 2-dose schedule of CVnCoV in the prevention of first episodes of virologically-confirmed cases of COVID-19 of any severity in SARS-CoV-2 naïve participants.
