California Clinical Trials

A listing of California clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

In California there are several research institutes and hospitals that conduct clinical trials. The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) has one of the largest medical research institutes in the state and conducts clinical trials not only in Los Angeles but all across California. The larger cities in California, such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose, and Sacramento all have ongoing clinical trials dedicated to a variety of conditions, including both paid and non-paid clinical trials.

Dextenza Within Upper Lid Canaliculus Compared With Lower Lid Canaliculus Following Bilateral Cataract Extraction Surgery With PCIOL.


Assessing DEXTENZA efficacy when placed within the upper eyelid canaliculus as opposed to the lower eyelid canaliculus.

Conditions: Post-Surgical Ocular Pain, Post-Surgical Ocular Inflammation

An Immunotherapy Vaccine (PIpepTolDC) for the Treatment of Patients With Type 1 Diabetes


This phase I trial investigates the side effects of PIpepTolDC vaccine in treating patients with type 1 diabetes who use insulin and don't have any other diabetes-related health complications. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. This means that the immune system, which usually protects against foreign invaders like bacteria and viruses, attacks the body's insulin-producing betacells in the pancreas (autoimmune response). Overtime, the beta cells are destroyed by the immune system. To stay ...

Conditions: Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

Investigation of PJ vs. Sugar on Glucose Levels in Healthy and Prediabetic Subjects


Pomegranate fruits and products, including juice, tea, wine and extracts are widely consumed and recognized for their health benefits. Pomegranate fruit possesses strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative properties. The effects of pomegranate on type 2 diabetic (T2DM) conditions have previously been reported. Although 8 oz. of Pom juice (PJ) contains 36.9 g of sugar, 12-week PomJ supplementation did not change plasma advanced glycated end-products, fasting glucose and HbA1C, b ...

Conditions: Diabete Type 2, Pre Diabetes
Phase: Not Applicable

Buccal Film Versus IV Injection Palonosetron for Moderately Emetogenic Chemotherapy Induced Nausea and Vomiting


Phase 2 study to compare efficacy, safety and PK of palonosetron, a long acting 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, by buccal film delivery compared to iv injection for chemotherapy induced nausea or vomiting (CINV). Subjects receive a single dose of palonosetron prior to moderately emetogenic chemotherapy.

Conditions: Nausea With Vomiting Chemotherapy-Induced

Help Build an A.I. Model to Predict Myasthenia Gravis Symptom Patterns and Flares


There are limited objective measurements of MG symptoms as well as a dearth of data at a granular level of MG (myasthenia gravis) symptoms and triggers occurring longitudinally. This study is designed to use the strengths of mobile smartphones which enable participant-driven real time capture of data manually and through augmented sensors such as video and audio, in order to better characterize MG symptoms and flares. The study aims to enroll approximately 200 participants for approximately 9 ...

Conditions: Myasthenia Gravis

The Provider Insurance Revenue Study in Healthcare Providers in the United States of America


We are enrolling 100 healthcare Provider volunteers (n=100) from across the United States to help us evaluate and document the financial impact of COVID-19 on Physicians and other healthcare Providers. Our investigation will compare individual Physician revenues before and after the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic. We expect to be able to differentiate between revenues lost due to the COVID-19-driven business recession and revenues lost due to the manipulation of reimbursement processes by insur ...

Kaiser Permanente houses over 6,000 physicians in southern California and it is also one of the largest research centers on the state. On its clinical trial division, Kaiser Permanente conducts clinical trials of almost every specialty funded by pharmaceutical companies, government, and foundations.

The Cedars-Sinai Medical Center located in Los Angeles is one of the largest research centers owned and operated by a private hospital in the United States. Focusing on biomedical, cancer, and heart research among other specialties, you can find almost any type of clinical trials for both health and non-healthy volunteers at the research division of Cedar-Sinai Medical Center.

There are around 100,000 clinical trials happening every year across the United States about almost every condition out there. While most clinical trials are testing drugs or medical devices there are also many behavioral and observational trials going on at any point in time. Many paid research studies are held at these California locations.

Clinical trials are incredibly important for making new medical and scientific discoveries, finding new and better methods for diagnosing medical conditions early, testing new interventions, and even developing safer and more effective surgical procedures.

In order for all these discoveries to me made available to the general population they need to go through years of rigorous testing both in healthy and non-healthy volunteers. During those years, medical professionals follow a protocol that has been previously approved by the FDA or other regulatory agency to test the effectiveness and safety of their discovery.

Other people choose to participate in a clinical trial because they feel it is a good way to contribute to the advancement of medical knowledge and that their participation can help many people in the future.
