The Managing Hypertension Among People Living with HIV: An InTegrated Model (MAP-IT) a stepped wedge, cluster-randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effect of practice facilitation (PF) on the integration of a Task-Shifting Strategy for hypertension (HTN) control (TASSH) into HIV care for management of HTN in people living with HIV (PLWH). The study will recruit 960 PLWH across 30 primary health centers (PHCs) in Akwa Ibom State (32 patients/PHC).
Severe infections in pediatric intensive care unit are not uncommon. Historically, the diagnosis of hereditary (primary) immune deficiency required a combination of recurrent clinical signs and biological stigmas. This paradigm is currently being questioned, and grows the hypothesis of a potential underlying genetic susceptibility in any severe infection. To date, the proportion of severe infections explained by an underlying immune deficiency is unknown. The aim of this prospective study is to assess the incidence of primary immune deficiencies in children with severe infection, regardless of their etiology.
A multicenter, randomized, parallel-group, placebo-controlled, double-blind, Phase 1/2a clinical study to investigate the safety, tolerability, immunogenicity and exploratory efficacy of a vaccine regimen consisting of an Ad26.Mos4.HIV prime and a boost with Modified Vaccinia Ankara (MVA)-BN-HIV in combination with broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAb) PGT121, PGDM1400, and VRC07-523LS in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)-infected study participants on suppressive anti-retroviral therapy (ART).
The increased risk of transmission of COVID-19 infection causes the incidence of death in health workers to escalate. It requires further research on risk factors and intervention in health worker professionals, especially on immunity factors and nutritional status. Quality of diet and nutrition is very important to support the immune system when infected. Several probiotic strains have been shown to decrease the duration and incidence of diarrhea and respiratory infections, suggesting the Gut-Lung Axis pathway. Some probiotics also improve the balance of diversity in the composition of the gut microbiota and affect body weight in obese people. Probiotics have also been shown to improve vitamin D absorption. A combination of vitamin D and probiotics may be an alternative to reduce gut dysbiosis that will directly or indirectly reduce the risk and severity of viral infections including SARS-CoV-2.
Primary immunodeficiencies represent a underdiagnosed group of rare diseases which if diagnosed well and in time can be treated in an efficient manner and prevent complications that may affect the quality of patients life in an severe manner. Neither in Costa Rica nor in Central America studies or national registries regarding the prevalence and characterization of primary immunodeficiencies in adult patients exist up to now. This study reflects for the first time the epidemiologic situation of primary immunodeficiencies in a Central American country, characterizing adult patients diagnosed with primary and idiopathic immune disorders treated in two specialized immunodeficiency clinics in Costa Rica.
The indication of this study is To evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of a SARSCoV- 2-derived multi-peptide vaccine in combination with the TLR1/2 ligand XS15 in adults with congenital or acquired B-cell/antibody deficiency
The purpose of this study is to assess efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of Kedrion Immunoglobulin 10% (KIg10) in pediatric patients with Primary Immunodeficiency Disease (PID).
There is no standard of care therapy for patients with granulomatous-lymphocytic interstitial lung disease (GLILD) seen in common variable immunodeficiency (CVID). Abatacept has recently looked promising for the treatment of patients with complex CVID. This study is a multi-site, phase II, randomized, blinded/placebo-controlled clinical trial in pediatric and adult subjects to determine the efficacy of abatacept compared to placebo for treatment of subjects with GLILD in the context of CVID.
Though common, morbidities related to upper airway disease in primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) and primary immunodeficiencies (PID) have not been fully characterized. These conditions can be difficult to distinguish due to their overlapping phenotypes. The sinonasal and middle ear features are often identified as most problematic by patients and their families, and optimal, highly effective treatment regimens have not been established. The main objective of this project is to characterize and compare the upper airway phenotypes in individuals with confirmed diagnosis of PCD and PID, and to collect critical data to inform the design of future clinical trials of treatment of the upper airway diseases. The investigators anticipate that these investigations will discern the clinical, anatomical, and pathophysiological phenotypes of paranasal sinus disease in PCD and PID, identifying disease endpoints and biomarkers that differentiate these two overlapping disorders. Findings from these studies will also enhance our understanding of middle ear disease and associated hearing loss in a cross-sectional cohort of patients with PCD and PID. Ultimately, the long-term goal of our Consortium is to elucidate underlying phenotypes and genotypes of these diseases, potentially leading to novel therapeutics that will improve the lives of affected individuals. Given the COVID pandemic, certain procedures will have the option to be converted to telehealth visits to ensure compliance with local guidelines and participant safety.
The main objective of this study is to generate diagnosis and therapeutic-decision tools through the identification of molecular causes of PIDs with autoimmunity/inflammation and the variability in disease outcome at the transcriptional level using a combination of omics signatures (transcriptomics, epigenomics, proteomics, metagenomics, metabolomics and lipidomics).
