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.

A Study of Erdafitinib Compared With Vinflunine or Docetaxel or Pembrolizumab in Participants With Advanced Urothelial Cancer and Selected Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor (FGFR) Gene Aberrations


The purpose of this study is to evaluate efficacy of erdafitinib versus chemotherapy or pembrolizumab in participants with advanced urothelial cancer harboring selected fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) aberrations who have progressed after 1 or 2 prior treatments, at least 1 of which includes an anti-programmed death ligand 1(PD-[L]1) agent (cohort 1) or 1 prior treatment not containing an anti-PD-(L) 1 agent (cohort 2).

Conditions: Urothelial Cancer

S1501 Carvedilol in Preventing Cardiac Toxicity in Patients With Metastatic HER-2-Positive Breast Cancer


This phase III trial studies how well carvedilol works in preventing cardiac toxicity in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER)-2-positive breast cancer that has spread to other places in the body. A beta-blocker, such as carvedilol, is used to treat heart failure and high blood pressure, and it may prevent the heart from side effects of chemotherapy.

Conditions: Cardiotoxicity, HER2/Neu Positive, Metastatic Malignant Neoplasm in the Brain, Recurrent Breast Carcinoma, Stage IV Breast Cancer AJCC v6 and v7

Abiraterone Acetate and Antiandrogen Therapy With or Without Cabazitaxel and Prednisone in Treating Patients With Metastatic, Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer Previously Treated With Docetaxel


This randomized phase II trial studies how well abiraterone acetate and antiandrogen therapy, with or without cabazitaxel and prednisone, work in treating patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer previously treated with docetaxel that has spread to other parts of the body. Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Hormone therapy using abiraterone acetate and antiandrogen therapy may fight prostate cancer by lowering and/or blocking the use of androgens by the tumor cell ...

Conditions: Castration Levels of Testosterone, Castration-Resistant Prostate Carcinoma, Metastatic Prostate Carcinoma in the Soft Tissue, Prostate Carcinoma Metastatic in the Bone, Stage IV Prostate Adenocarcinoma AJCC v7

Testing Ramipril to Prevent Memory Loss in People With Glioblastoma


This study is to determine if an oral drug called Ramipril can lower the chance of memory loss in patients with glioblastoma getting chemoradiation. Patients will take Ramipril during chemoradiation and continue until 4 months post-treatment. Memory loss will be assessed using several neurocognitive tests throughout the duration of the study.

Conditions: Glioblastoma, Radiotherapy; Complications, Cognitive Decline, Chemoradiation

Regional Radiotherapy in Biomarker Low-Risk Node Positive and T3N0 Breast Cancer


The purpose of this study is to compare the effects on low risk breast cancer receiving usual care that includes regional radiation therapy, with receiving no regional radiation therapy. Researchers want to see if not giving this type of radiation treatment works as well at preventing breast cancer from coming back.

Conditions: Breast Cancer
