There are about 3041 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in South Africa. 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 study is investigating how Mim8 works compared to other medicines in people with haemophilia A, who either have inhibitors or do not have inhibitors. Mim8 is a new medicine that will be used for prevention of bleeding episodes. Mim8 works by replacing the function of the missing clotting factor VIII (FVIII). When and how often participants will receive Mim8 is dependent on their previous treatment - but is otherwise decided by chance. The study will last for 72-124 weeks (17-29 months) depending on how long participants will be followed before it is decided when they start receiving Mim8 - the period before this is decided is called the 'run-in'. Participants will have 13-17 clinic visits. Mim8 will be injected into a skinfold on the stomach with a thin needle either once a week or once a month.
The main objectives of this study are to assess the safety, tolerability and immunogenicity of the candidate SARS-CoV-2 vaccines, COVIDITY, when administered using a needle-free injection device.
This phase II, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study is designed to evaluate the safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics of obinutuzumab in adolescent participants aged 12 to less than 18 with biopsy-confirmed proliferative lupus nephritis (LN).
This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of astegolimab in combination with standard of care chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) maintenance therapy in patients with COPD who are former or current smokers and have a history of frequent exacerbations.
The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of LACTIN-V, a vaginally administered live biotherapeutic product (LBP) that contains the human L. crispatus CTV-05 strain, on the vaginal microbiome of Lactobacillus-deficient young women in the South African FRESH study who are at high risk for HIV acquisition.
The primary aim of this pragmatic trial is to determine the effectiveness of a Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) Drug Sensitivity Testing (DST) strategy to guide individualised treatment of rifampicin resistant tuberculosis (RR-TB) patients. The primary objective is to determine the effectiveness of this WGS DST strategy in patients diagnosed with RR-TB. We will additionally perform an exploratory health economics evaluation of both arms, and will determine the feasibility of the WGS DST strategy.
A retrospective audit of cardiac penetrating cardiac injuries with specific reference to GSW
The aim is to assess the effectiveness of online group CBT for reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety among university students. The investigators will conduct a four-arm randomised control trial comparing a 10-session online group CBT intervention to three mental health apps (namely SilverCloud guided, SilverCloud unguided, and Mood Flow).
Retrospective data analysis of mortalities and the evaluation of the quality of care offered, using the Fishbone method.
Type 1 diabetes has been poorly characterised, with very sparse information available in the literature about the characteristics of the disease in Africa. Atypical young onset diabetes is often reported by clinicians in sub-Saharan Africa, including patients who have the phenotype of type 1 diabetes but do not appear to have an absolute insulin requirement. The onset of type 1 diabetes in many sub-Saharan African populations seem to occur at later ages (20s to 40s) than what is generally seen in Caucasian populations. The investigators seek to characterise young-onset insulin treated diabetes (clinically diagnosed type 1 diabetes) in sub-Saharan Africa;
