There are about 56 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Paraguay. 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.
This is a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of ivermectin in reducing the risk of progression to severe disease and hospitalizations in COVID-19 patients.
This study is designed to evaluate the energy requirements of two different Nonvascular ICD (NV-ICD) electrode configurations for achieving successful defibrillation of ventricular arrhythmias.
This study is a single site, prospective, single arm evaluation of the safety and effectiveness of the Healionics STARgraft-2 hemodialysis access graft. STARgraft devices have been demonstrated in preclinical and other studies to have improved resistance to the common failure modes of venous anastomosis stenosis and infection. This study is an extension from a prior First in Human (FIH) study (NCT03916731) with the STARgraft AV investigational device. That study also included control implants of commercially available standard ePTFE grafts approved for the same use. The study is enrolling patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) requiring hemodialysis via a prosthetic vascular graft. The study proposes to: 1. Evaluate the performance of the investigational STARgraft-2 compared to the ePTFE controls in the prior study and to published results, over a period of 6 months, with extended results to 1 year. 2. Verify safety of the STARgraft-2 multilayer construction in extended dialysis vascular access use. It is intended to enroll 25 subjects in this study.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety of rifampicin given at a dose three times as the standard one, in persons with tuberculosis that belong to groups that have not been widely included in previous trials.
This study is an open-label trial in which hospitalized patients with risk factors of severe coronavirus disease 2019 [COVID-19] will be receive treatment with convalescent plasma (≤ 15 days from symptoms start).
MejoraCare-Paraguay main objective is to test a mHealth solution (MejoraCare app) to be used for the education and empowerment of chronic patients (COPD, cancer, diabetes, heart disease. hypertension, etc.), and for supporting healthcare professionals to monitor and better understand patients' evolution during the COVID-19 outbreak (MejoraCare dashboard). This mHealth solution is built upon the Adhera platform developed by Salumedia Labs, which has already been validated in other therapeutic areas such as smoking cessation. MejoraCare is expected to raise awareness, educate and empower chronic patients, promoting behavioral changes towards adhering to healthier lifestyles thus reducing the risk of COVID-19 infection while providing emotional regulation support aiming at improving their mental health, quality of life, and emotional well-being.
Third in-human study for the AtaCor Extravascular (EV) Temporary Pacing System to collect initial safety and performance data for the latest AtaCor System.
Papaya has effects on oral pathogenic microorganisms, it also has anticoagulant quality, amebicidal action, antimicrobial, bacteriostatic and antifungal activity on different bacteria, especially on Streptococcus mutans, this can be exploited in the dental area. The objective of the study was to determine the efficacy of Carica Papaya peel extract (suckling) as an inhibitor of Streptococcus Mutans in students of the dental faculty of the National University of Caaguazú in 2018.
Up to 12 subjects will be enrolled (up to 8 undergoing an AtaCor Temporary Pacing System procedure) in order to evaluate initial safety and performance of the AtaCor Temporary Pacing System when used with three (3) strategies for stabilizing AtaCor Temporary Pacing System electrical measurements over a two (2) to seven (7) day period. The three treatments are (1) Negative Pressure Wound Therapy, (2) Anti-Inflammatory Glucocorticoid and (3) increased electrode spacing. A control arm with no additional treatment is also included. Safety will be evaluated through analysis of all Adverse Events. Performance will be evaluated through (1) the incidence of successful StealthTrac Lead placement using the MACH I Delivery Tool, (2) electrical performance measurements, such as pacing capture thresholds, sensed R-wave amplitudes, pacing impedance and skeletal muscle stimulation at rest. Appropriate sensing and pacing capture will be ascertained from ECG Holter Monitor recordings during periods of in-hospital ambulation.
The study is to assess the safety and feasibility of chemical denervation of multiple artery beds for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and its comorbidities.
