There are about 2273 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Puerto Rico. 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.
Given the magnitude of the epidemic in Puerto Rico, congenital Zika virus infection may have devastating complications to a significant population of children, also affecting families and society at large. This proposal takes a critical first step to ensuring that children with exposure to congenital Zika virus infection receive the follow-up care they need for optimal clinical outcomes. We anticipate that lessons learned from this study may also positively impact models for adherence to early intervention services in Puerto Rico.
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common type of lung cancer and is associated with poor prognosis and limited treatment options. The purpose of this study is to assess adverse events and change in disease activity when ABBV-400 is given to adult participants to treat advanced solid tumors. ABBV-400 is an investigational drug being developed for the treatment of NSCLC. Study doctors put the participants in groups called treatment arms. The Recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) will be explored. Each treatment arm receives a different dose of ABBV-400. This study will include a dose escalation phase to determine the best dose of ABBV-400, followed by a dose expansion phase to confirm the dose. Approximately 100 adult participants with NSCLC, or advanced solid tumors, will be enrolled in the study in approximately 7-10 sites in the Dose Escalation phase and 80-85 sites in the Dose Expansion phase worldwide. In the Dose Escalation arms, participants will receive intravenous (IV) escalating doses of ABBV-400 monotherapy. In the Dose Expansion arms, participants with wtEGFR NSCLC or with mutEGFR NSCLC will receive intravenous (IV) ABBV-400 monotherapy. There may be higher treatment burden for participants in this trial compared to their standard of care. Participants will attend regular visits during the study at an approved institution (hospital or clinic). The effect of the treatment will be frequently checked by medical assessments, blood tests, questionnaires and side effects.
Generalized anxiety disorder affects about 6.8 million adults in the United States, therefore its treatment is of major public health interest. Cannabidiol (CBD) has shown promise as an effective treatment for anxiety-related symptoms while lacking the severity of adverse effects seen with other medications. Given the wide availability of products containing CBD on the market today, from tinctures to coffee additives, and the undetermined potential for drug-to-drug interactions, medical supervision of CBD intake and formulation-specific clinical research is necessary. Therefore this study aimed to observe the effects of a specific hemp-derived full spectrum CBD formula on anxiety-related symptoms in a group of volunteers. The investigators will examine the self-reported anxiety symptoms in relation to use of a specific CBD formulation (25mg solvent-free full spectrum CBD capsules) in a cohort of adults diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. This open-label, cohort study will be conducted at six clinic sites in the United States (including Puerto Rico) from June 2020 through October 2020. The six physicians recruited to participate in the study were each actively prescribing CBD in their practices and were actively caring for patients with anxiety symptoms. Anxiety levels will be measured in enrolled participants diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder each week for a period of eight weeks using the Generalized Anxiety Disorder 7-Item Scale (GAD7). Participants will also be instructed to take a daily 25mg capsule of CBD. The investigators hypothesize that this formula, when carefully developed and administered by a healthcare professional, will significantly reduce anxiety symptoms.
This study is being done to see if a combination of 2 medicines (called NNC0194-0499 and semaglutide) can reduce liver damage in patients with non alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). NNC0194-0499 is a new medicine which works in the liver. Semaglutide is a well-known medicine, which is already used by doctors to treat type 2 diabetes in many countries. It also helps with weight loss and may reduce liver damage, and so prevent future liver complications. It works in a different way to NNC0194 0499. The 2 medicines may work better together than on their own. The study will also look at a combination of semaglutide and another weight-loss medicine called NNC0174-0833, which may be another treatment option for NASH. Each week, participants will get 2 injections. These could be 2 of the 3 medicines OR 1 of the medicines and a placebo OR 2 placebo injections. Which treatment participants get is decided by chance. A placebo is a dummy medicine which looks like the real medicine but doesn't contain any active medicine. The study will last for about 19 months. Participants will have 14 clinic visits and 9 phone calls with the study doctor. Participants will have 1 or 2 liver biopsies (tiny pieces of liver tissue) - one at the start (if participants have not had a biopsy recently) and one at the end of the study treatment. Women: Women cannot take part if pregnant, breast-feeding or planning to become pregnant during the study period.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of JNJ-64251330 in participants with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) on colorectal polyp burden (sum of the polyp diameters).
Corticotomy and micro-osteoperforation (MOP) have been proven to accelerate tooth movement and shorten orthodontic treatment time, compared to conventional treatment. MOP is less invasive; however, it is unclear whether it is as effective as a corticotomy. The purpose of this study was to compare the maxillary canine retraction achieved by these techniques.
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of lazertinib, amivantamab, carboplatin, and pemetrexed (LACP) compared with carboplatin and pemetrexed (CP), in participants with locally advanced or metastatic epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) Exon 19del or Exon 21 L858R substitution non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) after osimertinib failure.
The purpose of the study is to characterize Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and HPV vaccination knowledge, vaccine awareness, attitudes, health literacy, health beliefs, and intentions to receive the vaccine as well as educational preferences for learning more about HPV and HPV vaccination.
This Phase 3 study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of KSI-301 compared to aflibercept, in participants with neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration (wAMD)
The purpose of this study is to determine whether PF-07321332/ritonavir is safe and effective for the treatment of adults who are ill with COVID-19 and do not need to be in the hospital, but are at an increased risk of developing severe illness. Throughout the study period, provision will be made to allow study visits to be conducted at a participant's home or another non-clinic location if available. The total study duration is up to 24 weeks.
