NCT ID: NCT05688618 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Cognitive Impairment

Effect of the Administration of a Symbiotic (E. Faecium and Agave Inulin) on Mild Cognitive Impairment in Older Adults

Start date: January 16, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Cognitive impairment is one of the fastest growing diseases in the last decades, given the significant increase in senior citizen population in Mexico and the world. Several studies have discussed the gut-microbiota-brain axis. It has been demonstrated that a balanced gut microbiota, prevents an increase in pro-inflammatory cytokines that affect specific brain areas; having an important impact at the cortical level of the hippocampus which translates to diminished cognitive function and the start of cognitive impairment symptoms. After multiple studies on the effect of the administration of symbiotics in animal models in cognition and memory, there have been positive results, observing improvement in cognition and decrement in inflammatory cytokines at hippocampus level.

NCT ID: NCT05685641 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

Point of Care Tests to Identify Opportunistic Infections in Advanced HIV Patients in Mexico City

Start date: April 1, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

In Mexico City, the main cause of mortality among people living with HIV (PLHIV) continues to be opportunistic infections (OIs). Early detection of OIs allows their timely treatment and improves their prognosis. The use of rapid diagnostic tests (RDT) based on antigens of the most frequent causative agents of OIs allows adequate screening of these patients and facilitates decision making at the point of care. Unfortunately, these studies are not widely available in the different PLHIV care centers in the CDMX. We will conduct an open-label, non-inferiority uncontrolled clinical trial to investigate the diagnostic performance of urinary lipoarabinomannan, urinary Histoplasma antigen and serum Cryptococcus antigen in patients presenting for care with advanced HIV in CDMX, supported by rapid cluster of differentiation 4 (CD4) testing with lateral flow technology. Four referral hospitals will participate over 12 months. All patients with diagnosed HIV disease and suspected advanced disease presenting for care at participating centers will be included in the study. An inventory of approximately 1000 RDT will be obtained and distributed among the participating sites. A study coordinator will be hired and will visit each site once a week to collect the study variables and follow up on the included patients. The primary outcome of the study will be the percentage of patients with advanced disease who present with diagnoses made by RDT compared to historical controls of patients diagnosed with OI in 2022 at participating centers by conventional methods. Secondary outcomes will be time to initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART), time to initiation of OI treatment, and 30-day mortality after HIV diagnosis.

NCT ID: NCT05680025 Enrolling by invitation - Hypertension Clinical Trials

Effect of a Physical Exercise Intervention Based on the Transtheoretical Model on Blood Pressure

Start date: August 8, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Background: Hypertension is a public health problem; the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that more than 1280 million people suffer it. The treatment of said condition is pharmacological and non-pharmacological. Physical activity is part of the treatment, but unfortunately few adults can be classified as physically active. There is evidence that performing physical exercise reduces systolic blood pressure by up to 5 mm Hg, which has associated with reduced heart disease by up to 9%, ictus up to 14% and all-cause mortality by 4%. Lifestyle changing interventions, among them promoting exercise marked by a theory of behavior change, have shown positive results. Objective: To evaluate the effect of an intervention promoting the performance of physical exercise, with specific recommendations, based on the Transtheoretical Model, on systolic blood pressure and on the amount of exercise performed (minutes/week) in patients with hypertension aged 40 to 70 years, users of primary care in the Mexican Institute for Social Security (IMSS) in Aguascalientes. Material and methods: Randomized clinical trial, in which 442 patients with hypertension will participate. The control group will receive conventional care and recommendations for physical exercise and diet. The intervention group, in addition, will attend 6 workshops, one a month, which will promote performing physical exercise, with access given to videos of physical exercise routines, designed to gradually increase the exercise performed. At the start and end of the study, blood pressure, anthropometric measurements will be taken, through a questionnaire asking about sociodemographic data, performance of physical exercise, psychosocial factors regarding physical exercise, diet and adherence to pharmacological treatment. The characteristics of the study population by group will be described, and changes between baseline and final measurements compared, intra and intergroup, in the systolic blood pressure and minutes/week of physical exercise.

NCT ID: NCT05669755 Not yet recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

REDEFINE 3: A Research Study to See the Effects of CagriSema on Heart Disease in People Living With Obesity and Diseases in the Heart and Blood Vessels

Start date: March 1, 2023
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This study will look at the effects of CagriSema on cardiovascular events (for example heart attack and stroke) in people living with obesity and cardiovascular disease. Participants will either get CagriSema or a dummy medicine which has no effect on the body. Which treatment participants will get will be decided by chance. Participant's chance of getting CagriSema or placebo is the same. Participants will take one injection once a week. The study medicine will be injected briefly with a thin needle, typically in the stomach, thighs or upper arms. The study will last for about 3 years. Participants will have 22 clinic visits with the study doctor or study staff. Women cannot take part if pregnant, breastfeeding or plan to get pregnant during the study period. Women who are able to become pregnant must use highly effective birth control and will be counselled on the use of birth control.

NCT ID: NCT05665556 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

NCT ID: NCT05661292 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Colorectal Cancer Screening

Validation of Advanced Colorectal Neoplasm Risk Categories in a Prospective Cohort in Mexico

Start date: August 1, 2019
Study type: Observational

Worldwide, there are 1,361,000 new cases of colorectal cancers (CRC) annually, with 694,000 deaths. However, the incidence varies by up to a factor of 10x between high and low incidence countries (eg. USA vs Mexico, incidence rate of 42.54 vs 7.44 / 100,000 inhabitants). Mexico is considered a low-incidence country, with 8,651 new cases and 4,694 deaths annually. CRC is a preventable and detectable disease. Screening programs established in high-incidence countries have managed to reduce the incidence and mortality from this disease and it is considered a cost-effective strategy. In less developed countries where there are no screening programs for CRC, the highest number of deaths occurs despite having the lowest number of cases. It is recognized that a barrier to establishing a screening program in a country with low incidence and limited resources is cost-effectiveness. The prevalence of Advanced Colorectal Neoplasia (ACN) detected by screening colonoscopy in a Mexican cohort of 1172 INNSZ patients was 2.9%. In the US the prevalence is 7.6%. The number of colonoscopies to be performed to detect ACN was estimated at 34 for Mexico and 13 for the US, which suggests that the cost-effectiveness of screening colonoscopy could be 3 times lower in our country. In Mexico there is no national screening program for CRC. The eligible population (adults between 50 and 75 years old) for CRC screening is estimated in 20 million of Mexicans. It is recognized that Mexico does not have enough financial resources nor the infrastructure to screen the entire eligible population either by direct colonoscopy, or by FIT (fecal immunochemical test) followed by colonoscopy. With a 5% frequency of positive FIT, nearly 1,000,000 follow-up colonoscopies would be required annually in a population screening program. An alternative could be to offer screening based on risk, which means only offering screening to the highest-risk population. There are calculators to predict the risk of identifying ACN in a screening colonoscopy, however, none have been developed and validated in the Mexican population. The weight of the risk factors associated with ACN in the Mexican population could be different, so it is necessary to develop and validate an ACN risk calculator that allows the Mexican population to be stratified and to concentrate screening efforts on the population at highest risk.
