There are about 46 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Sudan. 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 RIC-AFRICA study is a sub-Saharan African prospective, multi-centre, randomised, sham-controlled, clinical trial of 1200 ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients undergoing predominantly thrombolytic therapy in 18 sites across South Africa, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda. The purpose of the study is to determine whether Remote Ischaemic Conditioning (RIC) can reduce the rates of all-cause death and early post-myocardial heart failure at 30-days in STEMI patients treated predominantly with thrombolytic therapy.
A global study for a better understanding of the cardiovascular conditions that increase the risk of developing severe COVID-19, and a better characterization of cardiovascular complications in hospitalized patients with COVID-19.
Mycetoma is the most neglected of the neglected tropical diseases. It is caused by certain fungi or bacteria. It is endemic in many tropical and subtropical regions and Sudan seems to be the mycetoma homeland. This chronic subcutaneous destructive and disabling inflammatory disease has many serious medical and socio-economic impacts on patients, community and health authorities. This work may suggest new therapeutic options for mycetoma that target the inflammatory pathogenic pathway and hence help in designing universal treatment options for mycetoma patients. Two overlapping aims were investigated in this project to advance our overall goals: 1. Profiling the immune/inflammatory signatures in the tissue microenvironment of fungus-induced mycetoma lesions 2. Profiling the immune/inflammatory signatures in the tissue microenvironment of bacteria-induced mycetoma lesions.
To study the efficacy of Gum Arabic as an immuno modulator and anti-inflammatory agent among COVID 19 seropositive patients..Half of participants will receive Gum Arabic and the other half will receive placebo
To assess the effects on hormonal and metabolic changes in the PCOs patients after ingestion of Arabic gum
Purpose: The diagnostic approach of patients with acute appendicitis (AA) remains debated. A number of clinical prediction rules (CPRs) exist for diagnosis of AA with variable sensitivity, specificity, and diagnostic accuracy, in different ethnic populations. Among these, the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha Appendicitis (RIPASA) score was shown to have a high sensitivity though with a poor specificity. The aim of this study is to modify and validate the RIPASA score in 4 distinct ethnic groups, and to compare the performance of the new score to the original RIPASA and Alvarado scores. Methods: This multicenter, international prospective observational study will be conducted in 6 countries, and will include all eligible patients referred to surgical specialists with acute right iliac fossa pain or suspected AA in the participating centres. Patients will be categorized into 4 ethnic groups based on the country of origin. The modified RIPASA score will be developed in one ethnic group, and along with the original RIPASA and Alvarado scores, will be externally validated in the other 3 ethnic groups. Management of patients will be prospectively evaluated in a standardized manner. The focus of the analysis will be on the performance of the 3 CPRs in different ethnic and gender groups using receiver operating characteristic curve analyses. Discussion: We expect this study to develop a CPR that can assist surgeons and surgical residents to early identify patients with AA in the busy clinical and low-resource settings, and to optimize the diagnostic value of the RIPASA and Alvarado scores in different ethnic and gender groups.
To study the efficacy of Gum Arabic as an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and Fetal Hemoglobin-inducing agent among Sickle Cell Disease children. Half of participants will receive Gum Arabic and the other half will receive placebo
This trial is designed to assess the therapeutic efficacy and safety of CHAd63-KH, a new candidate Leishmania vaccine, in patients with persistent PKDL. 100 participants will be randomly assigned (50 participants in each arm) to receive placebo or ChAd63-KH 7.5 x10(10)vp. Doses will be administered at a single time point.
Gum Arabic is a naturally produced gummy exudate from Acacia Senegal tree. It's a complex polysaccharide with proven prebiotic properties. Through its effect on intestinal bacteria, it's expected to reduce systemic levels of toxic bacterial metabolites and reduce inflammatory markers.By increasing fecal bacteria mass it's also expected to reduce blood urea level. These changes are potentially beneficial to hemodialysis patients who suffer from disturbed intestinal flora and a chronic inflammatory status. The investigators hypothesize that supplementing the diet of hemodialysis patients with Gum Arabic for four weeks would reduce inflammatory markers, increase total anti-oxidant capacity and reduce blood urea concentration.
Kidney transplantation is the best available treatment option for patients with end stage renal disease. However, kidney transplantation requires life-long use of immunosuppressive medication. Because of the high cost of these medications we need to carefully evaluate the cost-effectiveness of each drug regimen, especially in low-middle income countries. The objective of this clinical trial is to compare the efficiency and cost of two immunosuppressive protocols after living donor kidney transplantation: (1) antithymocyte globulin, tacrolimus, azathioprine and prednisolone versus (2) basiliximab, tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil and prednisolone.
