There are about 186 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Venezuela. 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 goal of this study is to evaluate the capacity of allogenic mesenchymal stromal cells form bone marrow (BM-MSC) or adipose tissue(Ad-MSC) to induce wound healing in patients with burn wounds.
The goal of this study is to evaluate the bone regeneration capacity of BM-MSC (Bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells), in patients with nonunion. BM-MSC cultured are seeded on a collagen scaffold, included into autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) clot, and implanted in the nonunion bone defect.
This is a proof-of-concept, single-center, non-randomized, open-label, phase 1b/2 study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of ConvitVax, a simple, low cost (of manufacture), personalized, potentially safe and effective breast cancer vaccine made of three components: autologous tumor cells homogenate obtained from 0.3 g of tumor tissue, 0.0625 mg of bacillus Calmette-Guérin Danish strain 1331 (BCG D1331), and 0.02% of formalin, for patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) except for brain metastases, leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, and/or spinal cord compression. The primary aim is to determine the overall safety and tolerability of ConvitVax when administered via an intradermal (id) injection as monotherapy in female patients with MBC who have failed at least one line of therapy. This study will give access to an immunotherapy, to underprivileged women with MBC, particularly in poor developing countries where patients may not have the opportunity to be treated with modern therapies or, in many cases, standard of care treatments. Breast cancer patients at Instituto de Oncología "Dr. Luis Razetti" (Oncological Institute "Dr. Luis Razetti") (IOLR) who meet the eligibility criteria will be consented and asked to have a biopsy of the primary tumor. This fragment will be divided for the preparation of each dose of the vaccine. A total of 40 patients with confirmed MBC will be treated with ConvitVax. The final volume per dose of the vaccine is 0.5 ml, with a total of 4 doses. ConvitVax will be applied via id injection with a 2-week interval between each dose. Patients will be monitored for disease recurrence and survival, for a period of 1 year after initiating the treatment.
The goal of this study is to evaluate the capacity of allogeneic bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) to induce bone regeneration in patients with periodontal disease. MSC cultured are loaded on a collagen scaffold, included into autologous platelet rich plasma clot and implanted in the bone defect.
Global acute malnutrition (GAM) in children under five is defined by being too thin for a given height and/or having the Mid-upper arm circumference less than a given threshold. GAM includes moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) and severe acute malnutrition (SAM). This study has been designed to generate new evidence about the simplified combined protocol for the identification and treatment of GAM in Venezuela. The objective of the study is to document the safety and effectiveness of the Venezuelan simplified treatment protocol for GAM, which includes reduced frequency of follow-up visits, single product use and optimized daily RUTF dose. This prospective longitudinal study was conducted in 19 centers treating GAM in children aged 6-59 months diagnosed with uncomplicated GAM, defined as WHZ <-2 or MUAC <125mm or ++ bilateral edema. Children will be prospectively followed for a total of 6 months, including the treatment phase and the immediate post-discharge weeks until 6 months. The effectiveness of the treatment will be measured by the recovery rate, duration of the treatment and changes in anthropometry (weight, height and arm circumference). Other treatment effects will also be measured, including how many are admitted to the hospital, death and relapse rates from the nutritional program. An economic evaluation component will be incorporated. Total costs will be aggregated and presented as costs per child treated and per child recovered.
• Check the efficacy, safety and tolerability of the compound Modified isothymol against the SARS-CoV-2 agent in patients COVID-19.
The purpose of this study is to better characterize and understand the population of patients with ambulatory or acutely decompensated heart failure in the American continent, getting to know their sociodemographic, clinical and paraclinical characteristics
RYGB represents one of the best alternatives for weight loss in obese patients achieving a weight loss of up to 60% and a resolution of comorbidities of 70%. Revision surgery contemplates multiple techniques including the conversion from one surgical technique to another, structural changes to the primary technique, among others. GERD is now a long-term problem for patients who have undergone LGS. RYGB is one of the best techniques to resolve this problem.
Magnetic devices have been successfully used in bariatric surgery. To the date the only reported use of the magnet was for liver retraction. This study is to demonstrate the safety and viability of using the magnetic system as a second surgical assistant in bariatric surgery and not only for liver retraction.
