Alabama Clinical Trials

A listing of Alabama clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

Found in the southeastern United States, people love exploring Alabama for its 1,500 miles of inland waterways. Known as "The Heart of Dixie" and "The Cotton State," the biggest cities include Montgomery, Birmingham, Auburn, and Mobile. Today, Alabama has a diverse economy and one of the most active college athletics scenes in the United States. The University of Alabama Crimson Tide is one of the "winningest" college athletic programs in the country, with football head coach Nick Saban a true local celebrity. UAB Hospitaland the regional Huntsville Hospital are the largest healthcare providers, with the latter serving northern Alabama.

Radiation Therapy With Concomitant and Adjuvant Temozolomide Versus Radiation Therapy With Adjuvant PCV Chemotherapy in Patients With Anaplastic Glioma or Low Grade Glioma

NCT00887146

Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether giving radiation with concomitant and adjuvant temozolomide versus radiation with adjuvant PCV is more effective in treating anaplastic glioma or low grade glioma.

Conditions: Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors

Study of Kidney Tumors in Younger Patients

NCT00898365

This research trial studies kidney tumors in younger patients. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, blood, and urine from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and identify biomarkers related to cancer.

Conditions: Adult Cystic Nephroma, Anaplastic Kidney Wilms Tumor, Angiolipoma, Cellular Congenital Mesoblastic Nephroma, Classic Congenital Mesoblastic Nephroma, Clear Cell Sarcoma of the Kidney, Congenital Mesoblastic Nephroma, Cystic Partially Differentiated Kidney Nephroblastoma, Diffuse Hyperplastic Perilobar Nephroblastomatosis, Extrarenal Rhabdoid Tumor, Kidney Medullary Carcinoma, Kidney Neoplasm, Kidney Oncocytoma, Kidney Wilms Tumor, Metanephric Adenofibroma, Metanephric Adenoma, Metanephric Stromal Tumor, Metanephric Tumor, Mixed Congenital Mesoblastic Nephroma, Ossifying Renal Tumor of Infancy, Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma, Renal Cell Carcinoma, Renal Cell Carcinoma Associated With Xp11.2 Translocations/TFE3 Gene Fusions, Rhabdoid Tumor of the Kidney, Wilms Tumor

Collecting and Storing Tissue From Young Patients With Cancer

NCT00898755

This laboratory study is collecting and storing tissue, blood, and bone marrow samples from young patients with cancer. Collecting and storing samples of tissue, blood, and bone marrow from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that may occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.

Conditions: Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Rhabdomyosarcoma, Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Central Nervous System Neoplasm, Ewing Sarcoma, Germ Cell Tumor, Leukemia, Lymphoma, Malignant Neoplasm, Neuroblastoma, Osteosarcoma, Retinoblastoma, Rhabdoid Tumor, Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Biomarkers in Tumor Tissue Samples From Patients With Newly Diagnosed Neuroblastoma or Ganglioneuroblastoma

NCT00904241

This research trial studies biomarkers in tumor tissue samples from patients with newly diagnosed neuroblastoma or ganglioneuroblastoma. Studying samples of tumor tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer.

Conditions: Ganglioneuroblastoma, Localized Resectable Neuroblastoma, Localized Unresectable Neuroblastoma, Regional Neuroblastoma, Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, Stage 4S Neuroblastoma

Voice and Swallowing Outcomes Following Revision Anterior Cervical Spine Surgery

NCT01017055

Evaluate voice and swallowing outcomes post operatively.

Conditions: Dysphagia, Dysphonia

I-SPY TRIAL: Neoadjuvant and Personalized Adaptive Novel Agents to Treat Breast Cancer

NCT01042379

The purpose of this study is to further advance the ability to practice personalized medicine by learning which new drug agents are most effective with which types of breast cancer tumors and by learning more about which early indicators of response (tumor analysis prior to surgery via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images along with tissue and blood samples) are predictors of treatment success.

Conditions: Breast Neoplasms, Breast Cancer, Breast Tumors, Angiosarcoma, TNBC - Triple-Negative Breast Cancer, HER2-positive Breast Cancer, HER2-negative Breast Cancer, Hormone Receptor Positive Tumor, Hormone Receptor Negative Tumor, Early-stage Breast Cancer, Locally Advanced Breast Cancer

Maternal Newborn Health Registry

NCT01073475

The primary purpose of this population-based study is to quantify and understand the trends in pregnancy outcomes in defined low-resource geographic areas over time, in order to provide population-based data on stillbirths, neonatal and maternal mortality.

Conditions: Pregnancy Outcome Trends in Low-resource Geographic Areas

Childhood Cancer Survivor Study

NCT01120353

The Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) will investigate the long-term effects of cancer and its associated therapies. A retrospective cohort study will be conducted through a multi-institutional collaboration, which will involve the identification and active follow-up of a cohort of approximately 50,000 survivors of cancer, diagnosed before 21 years of age, between 1970 and 1999 and 10,000 sibling controls. This project will study children and young adults exposed to specific therapeutic mod ...

Multi-Center African-American Inflammatory Bowel Disease Study (MAAIS)

NCT01169194

The investigators are doing the research to discover genes that cause Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) specifically in the African American population. African Americans with or without Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis are eligible to join. If you agree to join the study, the investigators will ask for information about your health. The investigators will also ask you to give us a blood sample so that they may discover the genes that cause IBD. The blood sample may be collected at Johns Hop ...

Conditions: Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Diagnostic and Therapeutic Applications in Microarrays in Organ Transplantation

NCT01299168

The current standard for biopsy-based diagnoses of dysfunction of kidney transplants is the Banff Classification which represents arbitrary international consensus. Recent data-driven approaches using molecular and conventional technologies indicate that mere consensus produces frequently incorrect diagnoses with potential harm to patients due to inappropriate treatment. To address this unmet need and improve diagnostics in the area of organ transplantation, the Alberta Transplant Applied Genomi ...
