There are about 22 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Mauritius. 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 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).
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of ertugliflozin (MK-8835) in pediatric participants with T2DM on metformin with/without insulin. The primary hypothesis of the study is that the addition of ertugliflozin reduces hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) more than the addition of placebo after 24 weeks of treatment.
The study will assess the safety and efficacy of AT-527 in combination with daclatasvir after 8 or 12 weeks of treatment.
this study extension objective is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a 200-mcg dose every 4 weeks for 24 weeks of IPP-201101 in patients with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who had participated in the main study IP-005.
A phase II multicenter, double-blinded clinical trial of the safety and efficacy of SP160412 in the temporary relief of mild to moderate, (i.e. first degree) sunburn
STUDY OBJECTIVE To confirm the incidence of in-hospital postoperative complications in adult surgical patients in Africa. STUDY DESIGN Seven day, African national multi-centre prospective observational cohort study of adult (≥18 years) patients undergoing surgery. Patients will be followed up for a maximum of 30 days. We will follow the original International Surgical Outcomes Study (ISOS) study design. The primary outcome is in-hospital postoperative complications in adult surgical patients in Africa. Secondary outcomes include in-hospital mortality and the relationship between postoperative complications and postoperative mortality. The intention is to present a representative sample of surgical outcomes across all African countries. This study will run between February and March 2016.
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.
M2951 is an investigational drug under evaluation for treatment of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. The purpose of the study was to assess the Safety and Efficacy of M2951 in participants with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ILT-101 (human recombinant interleukin 2 (IL-2)) in patients with moderate to severe systemic lupus erythematosus.
This is a multicenter open-label, prospective study in subjects with dark skin from one of the 3 ethnic/race backgrounds: Asian, Latin American and Black/African-American and with moderate to severe acne vulgaris on the face. All eligible subjects will receive Adapalene 0.3% - BPO 2.5% gel (Epiduo Forte/TactuPump Forte) once daily on whole face. The purpose of this trial is to evaluate subject reported outcomes with the combination of Adapalene 0.3% - BPO 2.5%, Epiduo Forte / TactuPump Forte gel, after 16 weeks of treatment of moderate to severe acne in dark skin phototypes (IV to VI).
