NCT ID: NCT05252936 Completed - Vaccination Refusal Clinical Trials

Effectiveness of a Mayan Language Social Media Campaign on COVID-19 Vaccine Beliefs in Guatemala

Start date: March 14, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Prior evidence, including formative work supporting the development of this study, suggests there is widespread vaccine hesitancy among Indigenous communities in Guatemala, fueled by mistrust in the health system, lack of official information, and the circulation of myths and misinformation. We will test the effectiveness of a video-based social media campaign that provides a basic overview of the science behind COVID-19 vaccines and addresses prevalent myths and misinformation being shared in target communities. A series of animated videos will be promoted through Facebook Ads and randomized at the individual level across Facebook users throughout the entire country. To investigate the effectiveness of Mayan language content, we are testing three treatment arms - visually identical videos in the 1) Spanish language, 2) K'iche' language, and 3) Kaqchikel language. Our primary outcomes are responses to two attitudinal questions collected via Facebook polling: 1) How safe do you think a COVID-19 vaccine is for people like you? (options: very safe, somewhat safe, barely safe, not safe, don't know); and 2) When you think of most people whose opinion you value, how much would they approve of people getting a COVID-19 vaccine? (options: definitely approve, mostly approve, somewhat approve, not at all approve, don't know). We will measure effects of the three treatment arms across Spanish speakers (including K'iche' and Kaqchikel speakers who also speak Spanish). We will also measure the effectiveness of K'iche vs. Spanish content among K'iche speakers and Kaqchikel vs. Spanish content for Kaqchikel speakers.

NCT ID: NCT05152147 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Esophageal Adenocarcinoma

A Study of Zanidatamab in Combination With Chemotherapy Plus or Minus Tislelizumab in Patients With HER2-positive Advanced or Metastatic Gastric and Esophageal Cancers

HERIZON-GEA-01
Start date: December 2, 2021
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This study is being done to find out if zanidatamab, when given with chemotherapy plus or minus tislelizumab, is safe and works better than trastuzumab given with chemotherapy. The patients in this study will have advanced human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER2)-positive stomach and esophageal cancers that are no longer treatable with surgery (unresectable) or chemoradiation, and/or have grown or spread to other parts of the body (metastatic).

NCT ID: NCT05130632 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Environmental Exposure

Plastic Waste and Human Health Effects in Guatemala

Start date: January 31, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this cluster-randomized trial in rural Guatemala is to assess intervention strategies to reduce plastic burning in 8 intervention villages compared to 8 control villages. The intervention group participants will participate in 12 weekly behavioral working group sessions; the control group will not receive any specific activities. Two hundred women of reproductive age as well as other community members from these villages will be enrolled in each group. The follow-up period is 12 months. A Community Advisory Board will be formed in order to provide input on study activities, evaluate working group intervention strategies, and discuss the potential to expand activities regionally. Data will be collected via interviews, focus groups, air pollution sampling, plastic waste collection, urinary biomarker assessments, and ambient air sampling. Program evaluation and results dissemination will occur in the last year of the project.

NCT ID: NCT04961996 Recruiting - Early Breast Cancer Clinical Trials

A Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Adjuvant Giredestrant Compared With Physician's Choice of Adjuvant Endocrine Monotherapy in Participants With Estrogen Receptor-Positive, HER2-Negative Early Breast Cancer (lidERA Breast Cancer)

Start date: August 5, 2021
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This is a Phase III, global, randomized, open-label, multicenter, study evaluating the efficacy and safety of adjuvant giredestrant compared with endocrine therapy of physician's choice in participants with medium- and high-risk Stage I-III histologically confirmed estrogen receptor (ER)-positive and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative early breast cancer.

NCT ID: NCT04956692 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Study of Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) Subcutaneous (SC) Versus Pembrolizumab Intravenous (IV) Administered With Platinum Doublet Chemotherapy in Participants With Metastatic Squamous or Nonsquamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) (MK-3475-A86)

Start date: August 5, 2021
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to evaluate pembrolizumab (MK-3475) subcutaneous (SC) administration as the first-line therapy in the treatment of metastatic squamous and nonsquamous NSCLC by assessing the pharmacokinetics (PK), safety, and efficacy of pembrolizumab SC injection in combination with standard-of-care chemotherapy. The primary hypothesis of the study is Pembrolizumab SC is noninferior to pembrolizumab intravenous (IV) for Cycle 1 Area Under Curve (AUC) and Cycle 6 minimal concentration (Ctrough) at steady state. Participants who discontinue study treatment after receiving the first course of 35 administrations of pembrolizumab (approximately up to 2 years) for reasons other than disease progression or intolerability, may be eligible for a second course of pembrolizumab for up to approximately 1 additional year if they have experienced radiographic disease progression per RECIST 1.1 as assessed by BICR after stopping first course treatment.

NCT ID: NCT04949256 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Metastatic Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Start date: July 28, 2021
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab plus lenvatinib plus chemotherapy compared with pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy as first-line intervention in participants with metastatic esophageal carcinoma The primary hypotheses are that pembrolizumab plus lenvatinib plus chemotherapy is superior to pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy with respect to overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors Version 1.1 (RECIST 1.1) by blinded independent central review (BICR).

NCT ID: NCT04939428 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Study of MK-4482 for Prevention of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Adults (MK-4482-013)

MOVe-AHEAD
Start date: August 11, 2021
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of the study is to assess if the study medication (molnupiravir, MK-4482) will prevent symptomatic coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in adults who live with someone with confirmed COVID-19 infection. This is a phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study; half of the study participants will receive molnupiravir twice daily by mouth and the other half will receive a placebo. The primary objectives of the study are to determine if molnupiravir prevents symptomatic COVID-19 disease and to evaluate its safety and tolerability. All participants who develop COVID-19 during the study are still eligible for any COVID-19 treatment recommended by their doctor.
