Florida Clinical Trials
A listing of Florida clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.
The main purpose of a clinical trial or research study is to test how effective and safe a new experimental treatment or intervention is in humans before it is released to the public. A clinical trial usually tests treatments such as medications, screening tests, alternative medicines such as herbs, and medical devices like prosthesis and pacemakers. There are a wide array of clinical research study centers in Florida that provide both paid and non-paid clinical trials.

The Pre-symptomatic Familial Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Pre-fALS) Study
Pre-fALS is a prospective natural history and biomarker study of people not yet affected with ALS, but who are at genetic risk for developing ALS. The investigators aim to recruit unaffected (healthy) people from familial ALS (fALS) pedigrees in which a known genetic mutation associated with ALS has been identified; for this study, a fALS pedigree is one with two biologically related individuals who have or have had ALS and/or FTD. Individuals who may be at genetic risk for ALS and who belong to ...
Effects of Cancer Symptoms on Caregivers
The primary objectives are to: 1.1 identify and compare the experiences of minority and nonminority caregivers, including the prevalence and severity of physical (fatigue, sleep disturbance) and psychologic (depression, anxiety, stress) symptoms and their influence on caregiver symptom burden; and to 1.2 assess the relationship between caregiver's symptoms (physical and psychologic) and the patient's symptom's at multiple time points over the patient's treatment regimen for advanced solid tumo ...
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 ...
Clinical Orthopaedic Data Bank (Acute and Chronic)
Data involving orthopaedic conditions and rehabilitation aspects of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders will be collected and stored as part of the normal clinical care of patients seen in the University of Florida (UF) and Shands Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute.
Psoriasis Longitudinal Assessment and Registry
The purpose of this study is to further evaluate the safety of infliximab, ustekinumab, and guselkumab in patients with plaque and other forms of psoriasis. The study also includes patients receiving other therapies, such as non-biologic and other biologic agents. The registry also evaluates patient and disease characteristics, including patient-reported assessment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA); and clinical and quality of life outcomes.
Use of the CA 125 Algorithm for the Early Detection of Ovarian Cancer in Low Risk Women
The goal of this clinical research study is to evaluate a method involving a blood test, called CA-125, that may be helpful in the early detection of ovarian cancer in women who are at low risk.
Characteristics and Disease Progression of Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) are long-term autoimmune diseases in which the immune system attacks parts of the body. The abnormal immune reaction causes inflammation of and damage to various body parts and can affect joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, and the brain. SLE and MCTD often affect young women, especially black and Hispanic women, and there is no known cure. Knowing more about SLE and MCTD will help in developing new and ...
International Hernia Mesh Registry
This is an open-label, multi-center, long-term, prospective hernia mesh registry. A minimum of 4,800 hernia patients will be enrolled from approximately 60 active sites globally
Transthyretin Amyloidosis Outcome Survey (THAOS)
THAOS is a global, multi-center, longitudinal observational survey open to all patients with transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR), including ATTR-PN (polyneuropathy), ATTR-CM (cardiomyopathy) and wild-type ATTR-CM. It is open-ended with a minimum duration of 10 years. Patients will be followed as long as they are able to participate. The principal aims of this outcome survey are to better understand and characterize the natural history of the disease by studying a large and heterogenous patient popu ...
Efficacy of Implantable Defibrillator Therapy After a Myocardial Infarction
This study will assess whether an implantable defibrillator will increase the likelihood of survival in patients who have had a heart attack in the prior 5 years, have abnormal test results from a 24 hour heart monitor, and who have low normal heart function.
The Pediatric Anesthesia Quality Improvement Project
The Study is designed to collect information about adverse events that occur in children undergoing anesthesia in participating hospitals. Demographic information will be collected on all anesthetics. An analysis of each adverse event will be performed and entered into the database. From this information we will devise strategies to prevent these adverse events.
Prospective Database Registry Study of Scoliosis in Children With Cerebral Palsy
The purpose of this study is to determine the radiographic and clinical outcomes of Scoliosis surgical and non-operative treatment in patients with Cerebral Palsy.
Clinical trials have several phases, and each phase has a different goal. The first phases aim to measure the toxicity of a drug to learn what would be the correct dosage for a patient. During the first phases investigators also pay close attention to any side effects or potential dangers to consider before releasing the drug.
During the last few phases of clinical research studies, investigators test the intervention on larger and more inclusive groups of individuals to continue examining the effectiveness and side effects of the medication. If individual decides to enroll in a clinical trial the research team usually discloses what phase he/she is joining beforehand, however all phases usually have the same potential benefits and/or side effects.
In Florida, there are some large universities that conduct clinical trials and other types of research studies about different categories both for healthy and non-healthy volunteers. Universities often partner with local hospitals and doctors to conduct research studies. The University of Miami research division in Miami, Florida often partners with Jackson Health Systems. Together, they conduct the largest amount of clinical trials in South Florida with over 700 ongoing trials as of this month.
The University of Florida, located in Gainesville, Florida has conducted more than 4,000 research studies over the past four years and actively searches for both non-paid and paid volunteers to participate in clinical trials. You can also find clinical trials in local hospitals such as the Baptist Hospital, the Cleveland Clinic, and the Mayo Clinic. The following lists clinical trials located in Florida that have been provided by clinicaltrials.gov.
