Alaska Clinical Trials

A listing of Alaska clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

Alaska is America’s largest state – bigger than Texas! Its capital and #1 city is Anchorage, but major populations also live in Fairbanks and Juneau. Much of Alaska’s 663,000 square miles is lightly inhabited or not inhabited at all due to freezing Arctic temperatures. Difficulties with travel and logistics mean that professional services are centered on the core cities. Despite all that, Alaska has 17 national parks and more than 120 state parks, ranking as one of America’s top destinations for nature tourism. With 401 beds and more than 850 physicians, Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage is Alaska’s largest hospital.

ASCO Survey on COVID-19 in Oncology (ASCO) Registry

NCT04659135

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Survey on Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) in Oncology Registry (ASCO Registry) aims to help the cancer community learn more about the patterns of symptoms and severity of COVID-19 among patients with cancer, as well as how COVID-19 is impacting the delivery of cancer care and patient outcomes. The ASCO Registry is designed to collect both baseline and follow-up data on how the virus impacts cancer care and cancer patient outcomes during the COVID-19 p ...

Conditions: Neoplasms, Coronavirus

Autostereoscopic Dynamic Near Vision Testing

NCT04606355

Visual perception testing using a novel program on an interactive three dimensional electronic device: Autostereoscopic dynamic near games for monocular visual acuity, stereopsis and color are compared with other conventional or similar tests.

Conditions: Visual Suppression, Amblyopia, Color Vision Defects

Testing the Use of Steroids and Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors With Blinatumomab or Chemotherapy for Newly Diagnosed BCR-ABL-Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in Adults

NCT04530565

This phase III trial compares the effect of usual treatment of chemotherapy and steroids and a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) to the same treatment plus blinatumomab. Blinatumomab is a Bi-specific T-Cell Engager ('BiTE') that may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. The information gained from this study may help researchers determine if combination therapy with steroids, TKIs, and blinatumomab work better than the standard of care.

Conditions: B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia With t(9;22)(q34.1;q11.2); BCR-ABL1

Infusion Duration Study To Assess Tolerability of Pegloticase Administered With a Shorter Infusion Duration in Subjects With Uncontrolled Gout Receiving Methotrexate

NCT04511702

The purpose of this study is to assess the tolerability of pegloticase administered with a shorter infusion duration in participants with uncontrolled gout receiving methotrexate.

Conditions: Chronic Uncontrolled Gout, Gout, Uncontrolled Gout

A Study to Compare the Administration of Encorafenib + Binimetinib + Nivolumab Versus Ipilimumab + Nivolumab in BRAF-V600 Mutant Melanoma With Brain Metastases

NCT04511013

This phase II trial compares the effect of encorafenib, binimetinib, and nivolumab versus ipilimumab and nivolumab in treating patients with BRAF- V600 mutant melanoma that has spread to the brain (brain metastases). Encorafenib and binimetinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Ipilimumab and nivolumab are monoclonal antibodies that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. This trial aims to find out which approach ...

Conditions: Acral Lentiginous Melanoma, Clinical Stage IV Cutaneous Melanoma AJCC v8, Metastatic Cutaneous Melanoma, Metastatic Malignant Neoplasm in the Brain, Metastatic Melanoma, Metastatic Mucosal Melanoma, Pathologic Stage IV Cutaneous Melanoma AJCC v8

Testing the Addition of an Anti-cancer Immune Therapy Drug (Nivolumab) to the Usual Chemotherapy Treatment (Cisplatin or Carboplatin With Gemcitabine) for Recurrent or Metastatic Nasopharyngeal Cancer

NCT04458909

This phase III trial compares the effect of adding nivolumab to the usual chemotherapy (cisplatin or carboplatin with gemcitabine) versus the usual chemotherapy alone in treating patients with nasopharyngeal cancer that has come back (recurrent) or spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Chemotherapy drugs ...

Conditions: Metastatic Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, Metastatic Nasopharyngeal Keratinizing Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Metastatic Nasopharyngeal Undifferentiated Carcinoma, Nasopharyngeal Nonkeratinizing Carcinoma, Recurrent Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, Recurrent Nasopharyngeal Keratinizing Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Recurrent Nasopharyngeal Undifferentiated Carcinoma, Stage IV Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma AJCC v8, Stage IVA Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma AJCC v8, Stage IVB Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma AJCC v8

Testing the Addition of Nivolumab to Chemotherapy for Patients With Metastatic Anal Cancer

NCT04444921

This phase III trial compares the addition of nivolumab to chemotherapy (carboplatin and paclitaxel) versus usual treatment (chemotherapy alone) for the treatment of anal cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Chemotherapy drugs, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, work in different ways t ...

Conditions: Anal Basaloid Carcinoma, Anal Canal Cloacogenic Carcinoma, Metastatic Anal Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Recurrent Anal Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Stage III Anal Cancer AJCC v8, Stage IIIA Anal Cancer AJCC v8, Stage IIIB Anal Cancer AJCC v8, Stage IIIC Anal Cancer AJCC v8, Stage IV Anal Cancer AJCC v8, Unresectable Anal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Treatment Resistance Following Anti-cancer Therapies

NCT04436120

The TRANSLATE study aims to better understand why tumors become resistant to standard anti-cancer therapies. New tumor biopsy and blood samples are collected after disease progression on standard-of-care anti-cancer treatment and compared to the initial (archival) tumor biopsy sample taken from the same patient. Annotated reports of results from clinical Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) gene panel tests of both tumor and blood are sent directly from the testing lab to the study physician for d ...

Conditions: Disease Progression
Phase: Not Applicable

NCI COVID-19 in Cancer Patients, NCCAPS Study

NCT04387656

This study collects blood samples, medical information, and medical images from patients who are being treated for cancer and have a positive test for SARS CoV-2, the new coronavirus that causes the disease called COVID-19. Collecting blood samples, medical information, and medical images may help researchers determine how COVID-19 affects the outcomes of patients undergoing cancer treatment and how having cancer affects COVID-19.

Conditions: Hematopoietic and Lymphoid Cell Neoplasm, Malignant Solid Neoplasm, COVID-19 Infection, Metastatic Malignant Solid Neoplasm

Impact of Discontinuing Chronic Therapies in People With Cystic Fibrosis on Highly Effective CFTR Modulator Therapy

NCT04378153

Despite the increasingly common use of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulator therapies in treating CF, it is still largely unknown whether or not other chronic therapies can be safely stopped. The SIMPLIFY study is being done to test whether or not it is safe to stop taking inhaled hypertonic saline or Pulmozyme® (dornase alfa) in those people that are also taking Trikafta™. Trikafta (elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor) is a combination CFTR modulator therapy that w ...

Testing the Use of the Usual Chemotherapy Before and After Surgery for Removable Pancreatic Cancer

NCT04340141

This phase III trial compares perioperative chemotherapy (given before and after surgery) versus adjuvant chemotherapy (given after surgery) for the treatment of pancreatic cancer that can be removed by surgery (removable/resectable). Chemotherapy drugs, such as fluorouracil, irinotecan, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving chemotherapy before ...
