NCT ID: NCT05041244 Completed - Diabetic Foot Clinical Trials

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy in Diabetic Wounds

Start date: May 1, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Topical Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (TNPW) is an established tool in the management of Diabetic foot ulcer in many countries. This treatment option is under utilized in the public sector of Mauritius. This study aims to determine the efficacy of TNPW through identification of biomarkers in the Mauritian setting compared with conventional treatment. Patient with DFU will be selected based on an eligible criteria and randomly assigned to intervention group or control group. Primary Objective: To determine the efficacy of TNPW in the public sector in Mauritius Secondary Objectives: To compare healing times, prognostic factors skin biopsies based on biomarker, histological and genomic analysis A randomised controlled study is being proposed, where up to 100 participants will be recruited. The wounds of participants in the intervention arm will be managed with 3 weeks of TNPW.

NCT ID: NCT05027334 Completed - Diabetes Mellitus Clinical Trials

Self-Management of Type-2 Diabetes Using a Mobile Application

Start date: July 1, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a global health emergency, since its prevalence has become alarming in many countries in the previous years. Because of the increasing healthcare requirement, it has also progressively become an economic burden for every country. From the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) Atlas (International Diabetes Federation, 2015), 415 million people worldwide were estimated to have DM in 2015 and this figure is expected to rise to 642 million in 2040. DM contributed to 5 million adult deaths globally in 2015. Mauritius has one of the highest DM prevalence in the world (24.3% prevalence for ages 20 - 79) for 2015 (International Diabetes Federation, 2015). 2,932 adult died due to Diabetes, and the average cost of DM related problems amount to 2 billion rupees per year. The Mauritius Non Communicable Diseases Survey (Ministry of Health and Quality of Life, 2015) reports an estimated 257,442 people between the ages of 25 and 74 with Diabetes in Mauritius. A high prevalence of pre-diabetes is also noted, which may subsequently result in diabetes and heart disease, if not appropriately managed. The DM epidemic has a significant impact locally and globally, calling for urgent remedial strategies to curb the spread. Studies have shown that patient's self-care including monitoring of blood glucose improve glycemic control (Allemann et al, 2009; Skeie et al, 2009; Istepanian et al, 2009). Patients are currently empowered through face to face counselling, websites, social media and other state of the art technologies. The use of smart phones for self-monitoring of blood glucose has shown to have substantial beneficial effects (Liang et al, 2011; Pal et al 2014). This project aims at using mobile technologies to instil behavioural changes in people living with DM and pre-diabetes in an attempt to alleviate the long term problems associated with DM. More precisely, it will constitute the development of an autonomous system for self-management of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients in Mauritius. The prototype will be tested for feasibility among patients with T2DM and pre-diabetes. It is expected that the proposed system will help to reduce the financial burden on the healthcare system in Mauritius through patient empowerment and improved self-care in the long run.

NCT ID: NCT04314258 Enrolling by invitation - Metabolic Syndrome Clinical Trials

Effect of Moringa Oleifera Infusion on Health

Start date: February 10, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The study aims at investigating the effects of the consumption of Moringa oleifera Lam leaves on biomedical markers of health among healthy individuals who are hyperglycaemic with a fasting blood glucose equal or greater than 5.5mmol/L. The main objectives are as follows: 1. To determine the effect of consuming 4 grams of Moringa oleifera Lam leaves infused in 200 ml of hot water twice daily on blood glucose level [BSc (Hons) Medical Science Student]. 2. To assess the effect of consuming 4 grams of Moringa oleifera Lam leaves infused in 200 ml of hot water twice daily on plasma lipids level [Master of Public Health Students]. 3. To compare the effect of the Moringa tea consumption on lipid profiles of both healthy and hyperglycemic participants [Master of Public Health Students]. 4. To evaluate the effects of Moringa oleifera Lam leaves on blood anti-oxidant status [BSc (Hons) Nutritional Sciences Student]. The research work will consist of (1) Experimental intervention: The experimental group will drink Moringa tea; (2) Survey questionnaire, (3) Anthropometric measurements, (4) Blood pressure determination and (5) Blood collections at 15-day intervals during 9 weeks. The blood tests to be performed are as follows: Glucose, HbA1C, Uric acid, C-Protein reactive, Lipid Profile (Total Cholesterol, HDL Cholesterol, Triglycerides), and blood antioxidants (superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, total blood anti-oxidant capacity).

NCT ID: NCT04181762 Recruiting - Lupus Nephritis Clinical Trials

Start date: July 7, 2020
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous secukinumab 300 mg compared to placebo, in combination with standard of care therapy (SoC), in subjects with active lupus nephritis (ISN/RPS Class III or IV, with or without co-existing class V features).

NCT ID: NCT04029480 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Ertugliflozin Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) Pediatric Study (MK-8835/PF-04971729) (MK-8835-059)

NCT ID: NCT03008070 Completed - Clinical trials for Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)

Phase 2b Study in NASH to Assess IVA337

Start date: February 7, 2017
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, abbreviated as NASH, is a chronic liver disease that may progress to cirrhosis. The disease is mostly associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus, or insulin resistance and is very common. However, Treatment of NASH is a significant unmet clinical need. IVA337 (lanifibranor) is a next generation pan-PPAR (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors) agonist addressing the pathophysiology of NASH : metabolic, inflammatory and fibrotic. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the efficacy and the safety of two doses of IVA337 (800mg, 1200 mg) per day for 24 weeks versus placebo in adult NASH patients with liver steatosis and moderate to severe necroinflammation without cirrhosis.
