There are about 95 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Senegal. 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 trial aims to validate a novel clinical care strategy based on a electronic clinical decision support algorithm (CDSA) combined with point of care rapid diagnostic tests by evaluating its impact on antibiotic prescription and clinical outcome of children and adolescent presenting at primary healthcare facilities with non-severe acute illness compared to routine practice. The trial also aims to assess the usability of the CDSA strategy. The study will be conducted in primary healthcare facilities across different epidemiological regions of Senegal.
Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is the extravasation of blood into the subarachnoid space from traumatic or nontraumatic origin. There is a paucity of data on the burden of SAH in African countries. In this study, we analyzed data from patients in the largest neurovascular center in Senegal to determine the sex- and age-adjusted burden of SAH in Senegal.
This study generates robust, uniform clinical data across emerging COVID-19 strains to train ML/AI algorithms of the Sponsor's imPulse™ Una infrasound-to-ultrasound e-stethoscope for digital diagnostic feature synthesis of asymptomatic and symptomatic COVID-19 digital biosignatures for rapid and accurate adult and child mass screening.
Vaccine hesitancy is defined by the WHO's Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization as a 'delay in acceptance or refusal of vaccination despite availability of vaccination services'. This varies in form and intensity based on when and where it occurs and what vaccine is involved. Several prophylactic vaccines against COVID-19 are currently available. As the world is beginning the roll-out the first approved vaccines, little is known about people's potential acceptance of a COVID-19 vaccine in most of the African countries. ACHES (African COVID -19Vaccine Hesitancy) is an observational study aimed at measuring COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy in five west African countries and exploring causes behind the hesitancy with the main objective of informing guidelines for the proficient roll-out of the vaccines in the region.
This is an international, cross-sectional and descriptive study that aims to investigate differences in patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and patient-reported experience measures (PREMs) and that aims to explore the profile and healthcare needs of adults with congenital heart diseases.
This community-based cluster randomized controlled trial aims to evaluate the effectiveness of time-limited, community-wide mass drug administration (MDA) with dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine (DHA-PPQ) and single low-dose primaquine (SLD-PQ) on Plasmodium falciparum transmission compared to standard-of-care seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC). The study will be conducted in a moderate-to-low malaria transmission setting of Senegal with optimized malaria control measures (e.g., proactive community case management and piperonyl butoxide pyrethroid long-lasting insecticidal nets (PBO LLINS)).
The main objectives of CESTA are (1) to compare the efficacy of two cervical cancer screening algorithms: HPV test followed by visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) and treatment (HPV + VIA + treat) and HPV test followed by immediate treatment (HPV + treat). The study will be conducted to address its objectives in women living with HIV (from now on called HIV positive women); and 2) to model the comparative cost-effectiveness of the two screening and treatment strategies. 2,000 HIV positive women will be recruited from HIV care clinics, also called antiretrovirals (ARV) clinics in South Africa. After giving informed consent, women will be screened with HPV testing and those that are HPV positive will be randomized at a 4:1 ratio into HPV + VIA + treat (Arm 1) and HPV + treat (Arm 2). Women in Arm 1 will receive VIA and only positive for VIA will be treated. In Arm 2, all HPV positive women will be treated. Women that are eligible for ablative treatment will be randomized into treatment with TA or cryotherapy in both arms. Others will be referred to colposcopy. After VIA in Arm 1 or before treatment in Arm 2, the nurses will collect 2-4 biopsies on all HPV positive women. The biopsies will be used as gold standard for disease detection. Treated women will be called by telephone after 1 week and 1 month to assess side-effects and satisfaction with the procedures. All women who were HPV-positive (treated or not) will be called back after 1 year for a follow-up visit. At this visit, women will be screened with HPV testing and VIA and 2-4 colposcopy-directed biopsies will be taken from all HPV positive women. Women with remaining/recurrent CIN2+ disease will receive appropriate management.
This study evaluates the addition of a simple, scalable "WASH kit", including household water treatment products, a safe water storage container, and hygiene promotion, to the standard national protocol for outpatient treatment of uncomplicated severe acute malnutrition among children aged 6-59 months of age in northern Senegal.
The overall objective of this project is to examine and quantify the potential existence and impact on Praziquantel (PZQ) efficacy, of naturally occurring S. haematobium and S. bovis hybrid populations in northern Senegal. Schistosome hybrids may present vigor compared to their pure parental forms and hence, may be less sensitive to PZQ. We hypothesise that PZQ repeated treatment selects the hybrid schistosome populations.
