There are about 1206 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Philippines. 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.
Ensuring the health and well-being of older individuals is a global problem. The application of emerging technology is increasingly advocated to improve health outcomes, yet the investigators need to identify how feasible and acceptable this is among users. One example of these emerging technologies is humanoid technologies. Humanoid technologies are human-resembling digital objects that can be projected using head-mounted displays to be worn by users. This study seeks to assess the impact of humanoid technologies (HTs) in the form of digital health coaches to enhance the physical activity of community-dwelling older adults in the Philippines. The quasi-experimental study will assess the participants' intention for technology use and the participants experience of the intervention (acceptability, barriers, and facilitators). Specifically, this study will compare the impact of the Humanoid Technology-driven Health Enhancing Physical Activity program versus a standard physical activity program (video-based) on physical performance, cognitive function, and quality of life among older adults in two 'senior centers' in the Philippines. The study will also identify older adults' preferences for an ideal Humanoid Technology-driven Health Enhancing Physical Activity and the participants intention to use it via survey. An embedded qualitative study will explore participants' perceptions of the acceptability, barriers, and facilitators of the Humanoid Technology-driven Health Enhancing Physical Activity program.
This study is a multicentric, prospective, randomised, controlled, post-market clinical follow up (PMCF) study to investigate safety, visual outcomes and contrast sensitivity after bilateral implantation of either LuxSmart IOLs (study group) or LuxGood IOLs (control group).
The proposed research project aims to answer the question "Are immersive technology systems effective in the rehabilitation management of pediatric patients with cerebral palsy and with mobility limitations?". The current study is the second of three phases, and it aims to create an immersive gamification technology system for the management of patients with cerebral palsy and with mobility disorders and to determine its clinical effectiveness, safety, and usability among children with mild to moderate cerebral palsy.
The primary purpose of this clinical trial is to investigate whether the consumption of pigmented rice (black rice) in the diet improves cardiovascular health, specifically body weight, lipids, and glucose levels. It also aims to know whether people enjoyed eating pigmented rice and if they would continue eating it.
This is a Phase III, randomised, multicentre, double-blinded study to evaluate efficacy, safety and tolerability of treatment with zibotentan/dapagliflozin and dapagliflozin alone in participants with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and high proteinuria.
This is a single-blind randomized controlled trial done in a Level III neonatal intensive care unit. Preterm newborns with RDS were randomized to receive oxygen therapy through bubble CPAP vs ventilator-derived CPAP. Differences in arterial blood gases, oxygen saturation, number of surfactant and CPAP failure rate between study groups were analyzed.
This randomized, double-blind, controlled intervention trial aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a starter infant formula supplemented with a blend of 7 HMOs, MOS and B. infantis and will provide evidence on the safety and efficacy of the innovative prebiotic/ probiotic blend to support age-appropriate infant growth, a healthy gut microbiome, gastrointestinal (GI) tolerance and GI health, and immune development.
The proposed research project aims to answer the question "Are immersive technology systems effective in the management and treatment of patients with BPSD?". This project is composed of three phases and the current study is the second phase. The phase 2 trial aims to create an immersive technology system for managing the behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia and determine its clinical effectiveness, safety, usability, and acceptability among patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease.
The goal of this clinical trial is to evaluate 3 dose levels of TBAJ876 for 8 weeks in combination with pretomanid and linezolid, compared to 8 weeks of Isoniazid, rifampicin, pyrazinamide and ethambutol (2HRZE), in adult participants with newly diagnosed, smear-positive, pulmonary drug sensitive tuberculosis (DS-TB). The main questions the trial aims to answer are: - What is the optimal dose of TBAJ876 to continue further in development. - What is the bactericidal activity of bedaquiline with pretomanid and linezolid (B-Pa-L) compared to 2HRZE and TBAJ876-Pa-L over 8 weeks - What is the efficacy and safety of the 26-week B-Pa-L regimen compared with the SOC (2HRZE/4HR) in participants with DS-TB. Participants will be seen regularly during treatment (up to 26 weeks) and follow-up (52 weeks post treatment) for safety and efficacy assessments, including but not limited to: - Safety labs, ECGs, vital signs, physical exams, PK sampling, neuropathy assessments and adverse event monitoring - Sputum collection
Skin infection remains one of the leading causes of pediatric consults especially in developing countries like the Philippines. This common condition has not been considered a significant problem that could cause alarm as public health importance. Furthermore, due to the consideration that skin diseases are benign, not life-threatening, and low priority.
