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.

Product Performance Report: Evaluate Long-term Reliability & Performance of Medtronic Marketed Cardiac Therapy Products
The main purpose of the Product Performance Report (formerly referred to as System Longevity Study) is to evaluate long-term performance of Medtronic market-released cardiac rhythm products by analyzing product survival probabilities.
Brain Development Research Program
Dr. Elliott Sherr and his collaborators at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) are studying the genetic causes of disorders of cognition and epilepsy, in particular disorders of brain development that affect the corpus callosum, such as Aicardi syndrome, as well as two additional brain malformations, polymicrogyria and Dandy-Walker malformation. The goal of the investigators' research is to use a better understanding of the underlying genetic causes as a foundation to develop better t ...
Cooperative Huntington's Observational Research Trial
The purpose of this study is to collect prospective data from individuals who are part of a Huntington Disease (HD) family, in order to relate phenotypes between individuals and families with each other and genetic factors in order to learn more about HD, develop potential treatments for HD, and to plan for future research studies of experimental drugs aimed at slowing or postponing the onset and progression of HD.
Biliary Atresia Study in Infants and Children
Little is known about the factors that cause biliary atresia nor the factors that influence disease progression. The purpose of this study is to collect the pertinent clinical information, genetic material and body fluid samples to enable investigators to address the following aims: To identify the gene or genes implicated in the etiology of BA; To identify polymorphisms that may be important in disease progression such as HLA polymorphisms; To characterize the natural history of the older, non- ...
DILIN's Prospective Study
The purpose of this study is to identify individuals who have suffered a liver injury arising as an idiosyncratic reaction to a prescription drug or a complementary and alternative medicine. Recently added acute cases enrollment that meets criteria to the protocol. Also added Fibroscans to the protocol that will be completed at baseline and follow-up on chronic subjects.
Novel Serum Markers for Monitoring Response to Anti-Cancer Therapy
The purpose of this study is to measure the levels of serum proteins and other biomarkers in cancer patients and in patients suspected of having cancer. We believe that some of these markers may be useful for confirming the diagnosis or for selecting patients for specific types of cancer therapies. These markers may also help to predict response to therapy, relapse after therapy, and survival after therapy.
International Collaborative Gaucher Group (ICGG) Gaucher Disease Registry & Pregnancy Sub-registry
The ICGG Gaucher Registry is an ongoing, international multi-center, strictly observational program that tracks the routine clinical outcomes for patients with Gaucher disease, irrespective of treatment status. No experimental intervention is involved; patients in the Registry undergo clinical assessments and receive care as determined by the patient's treating physician. The objectives of the Registry are: To enhance understanding of the variability, progression, identification, and natural h ...
Drug-Induced Liver Injury (DILN)Network Retrospective
The purpose of this study is to establish retrospectively a nationwide registry of patients who have suffered drug-induced liver injury (DILI), and to collect, immortalize and store serum, DNA, and lymphocytes from these patients. ILIAD will serve as a resource for subsequent mechanistic investigations into the basis of severe idiosyncratic DILI. The primary goal of the ILIAD protocol is to create: (a) a clinical database consisting of individuals who have experienced severe DILI caused by four ...
Characterization of the Melanoma-Specific Immune Response
The aim of this study is to study T-cells. Blood will be collected and the samples will be used to generate T cell clones. Two separate blood draws will be required at the maximum.
Identification of New Serum Diagnostic Markers of Hepatocellular Carcinoma
The aim of the study is to see if there any changes in the quality of life for patients that are undergoing radical prostatectomy.
Anorectal Microbicide Project(AMP): Rectal Health, Behaviors and Microbicide Acceptability
Observational, cross-sectional, single-visit study of 896 men and women in Los Angeles, CA and Baltimore, MD including a computer-assisted interview focusing on the behavioral repertoire surrounding RAI, symptoms, and health seeking behaviors and a multidimensional assessment of behaviors, anorectal examination, and testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
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.
