There are about 49 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in El Salvador. 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.
A Randomized, Double-Blinded, Aqueous Gel-Controlled Dose Escalating Trial to Study the Safety and Antimicrobial Efficacy of DBI-002 Probiotic vs. Aqueous Gel and Vehicle Gel vs. Aqueous Gel in Adults with Tinea Versicolor (DBI-202).
The objective of this study was to test the hypotheses that wheelchair-related health, wheelchair skills, wheelchair use, poverty probability, and quality of life would improve; and that the number of wheelchair repairs required, adverse events, caregiver burden and the level of assistance provided would decrease after the delivery of manual wheelchairs following the World Health Organization (WHO) 8-step service-delivery process. This was a longitudinal, within-subject study design including 247 manual wheelchair users in El Salvador. The intervention consisted of the WHO 8-step process as well as maintenance reminders. Outcome assessments on wheelchair-related health, wheelchair skills, wheelchair repairs required, adverse events, caregiver burden and the level of assistance, poverty probability, and quality of life were performed via structured interviews at the initial assessment, at wheelchair delivery, and at 3- and 6-month follow-up. Wheelchair use was measured with dataloggers at assessment, delivery and 3-month follow-up.
Patients at least 40 years of age who are undergoing cataract surgery will be randomized to receive treatment with one of four groups of dexamethasone ophthalmic suspension or placebo eye drops to determine if the drops decrease inflammation and pain inside the eye and are safe after cataract surgery.
This study is a prospective, open-label clinical study of the VERITAS Vision System. The study will be conducted at up to three sites, with minimum 55 eyes and up to 150 eyes to be treated. The investigator or designee will perform the cataract surgery with the VERITAS Vision System on the subjects. The data from the system log files, the questionnaire, the operative report and other medical records will be used to assess the clinical utilization of the VERITAS Vision System.
This is a pilot, multicenter, real-world, single-visit, low risk, phase IV interventional study to efficiently identify new cases of heart failure (HF) Stage C in subjects who are at risk of cardiovascular (CV) disease in high-volume ambulatory primary care settings in 3 countries in Central America.
Pragmatic randomized clinical trial comparing Iodine Povacrylex based on alcohol to Chlorhexidine also based on alcohol in efficacy and security to diminish frequency of surgical site infections in major abdominal elective clean contaminated wounds. Will be held in a third level university, high volume national public hospital in San Salvador, El Salvador.
Antibiotic resistance is one of the major health threats facing global as well as domestic populations, however it is not well characterized in pediatric patients. Pediatric patients receiving cancer-directed therapy have several risk factors implicated in development of antibiotic resistance including multiple courses of antibiotics, repeated exposures to the hospital environment, indwelling devices and chemotherapy-related damage to mucosal barriers. The investigators propose to capitalize upon the unique position of St. Jude Global within the global pediatric oncology community by using its regional alliance network to describe the molecular epidemiology of antibiotic resistance in Gram-negative bacteria in this population. Primary Objectives 1. Describe the epidemiology and the phenotypic and previously determined molecular determinants of antimicrobial resistance in Gram-negative organisms isolated from pediatric diagnostic specimens in selected Central American and US sites with capacity to treat pediatric cancer 2. Utilize strain typing by whole genome sequencing to describe relatedness between organisms at participating sites
The aim of the study is evaluate the effect of cinnamon powder (Cinnamomum verum) on the glycaemia and HbA1c (Glycohemoglobin) of type 2 diabetic Salvadoran patients, whose hypoglycemic treatment is only Metformin. To carry out this objective, subjects who agree to be part of the study will subjected to measurements of their body weight, height, body mass index, waist circumference, systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, capillary glucose (with glucose meter) every 2 weeks, and their glycohemoglobin (HbA1c) at the beginning and at the end of the study.
The purpose of this academic-industrial partnership will be to compare two thermoablation modalities using devices adapted to low and middle income countries (LMICs) to traditional CO2-based cryotherapy for the treatment of cervical precancer. The investigators will investigate whether the cure rates of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 2 and more severe diagnoses (CIN2+) with these devices are non-inferior compared to that of conventional cryotherapy. The results of this study will affect other research areas by serving as a springboard to exploring treatment alternatives that are amenable to low-resource settings and thus will reach the most vulnerable populations.
