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.

International Pediatric Adrenocortical Tumor Registry
This study aims to collect demographic and medical information including detailed family history of cancer of children and adolescents with adrenocortical tumors in order to learn more about the clinical and epidemiological aspects, treatment modalities, and outcome of patients with this rare disease, worldwide. In addition, investigators at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (SJCRH) plan to perform molecular studies of tumor cells aimed to clarify the role of the TP53 gene and other genetic ...
Post Approval Study: NOVATION Ceramic Articulation Hip System
The purpose of this study is to collect and evaluate long-term safety and effectiveness data on the Exactech® NOVATION ™ Ceramic Articulation Hip System ("NOVATION ™ Ceramic AHS"). Ten (10) years of follow-up data will be collected in this study. The first five (5) years of subject follow-up will involve clinical (Harris Hip Score, adverse events), radiographic, and self-assessment evaluation. The remaining five (5) years of subject follow-up will be accomplished with an outcomes questionnaire t ...
Pleurectomy/Decortication (Neo) Adjuvant Chemotherapy and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy to the Pleura in Patients With Locally Advanced Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma
For patients with this type of cancer, the standard of care is treatment with chemotherapy. Radiation therapy is typically not used. This is because radiation to the entire lining of the lung has many side effects that are often severe including damage to the lung (pneumonitis). There is a new radiation technique using Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) that has been shown to reduce many of the side effects of standard radiation therapy. This type of radiation therapy specifically targ ...
Diet and Physical Activity Change or Usual Care in Improving Progression-Free Survival in Patients With Previously Treated Stage II, III, or IV Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies whether changes in diet and physical activity can increase the length of survival without the return of cancer (progression-free survival) compared with usual care in patients with previously treated stage II, III, or IV ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer. A healthy diet and physical activity program and counseling may help patients make healthier lifestyle choices. It is not yet known whether changes in diet and exercise may help increa ...
Long-Term Follow-Up of Patients Who Have Participated in Children's Oncology Group Studies
This clinical trial keeps track of and collects follow-up information from patients who are currently enrolled on or have participated in a Children's Oncology Group study. Developing a way to keep track of patients who have participated in Children's Oncology Group studies may allow doctors learn more about the long-term effects of cancer treatment and help them reduce problems related to treatment and improve patient quality of life.
Neuropsychological and Behavioral Testing in Younger Patients With Cancer
This research trial studies neuropsychological (learning, remembering or thinking) and behavioral outcomes in children and adolescents with cancer by collecting information over time from a series of tests.
A Safety Extension Study of Trastuzumab Emtansine in Participants Previously Treated With Trastuzumab Emtansine Alone or in Combination With Other Anti-Cancer Therapy in One of the Parent Studies
This is a global, multicenter, open-label safety extension study. Participants receiving single-agent trastuzumab emtansine or trastuzumab emtansine administered in combination with other anti-cancer therapies in a Genentech / Roche-sponsored parent study who are active and receiving benefit at the closure of parent study are eligible for continued treatment in this study.
Filgrastim-Mobilized Stem Cells for Transplantation Using Unrelated Donors
The purpose of the study is to: Establish and evaluate a system for collection of filgrastim-mobilized peripheral blood stem cells from National Marrow Donor Program donors (NMDP) donors Assess the safety among NMDP donors of filgrastim administration and PBSC leukapheresis Assess the safety and efficacy of filgrastim-mobilized PBSC in unrelated donor hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients Determine the acceptability of stem cell donation by filgrastim stimulated apheresis in normal dono ...
Florida Center for Brain Tumor Research
The purpose of this research study is to collect and store brain tumor tissue samples for future research. The samples will become part of the University of Florida Brain Tumor Tissue Bank/Florida Center for Brain Tumor Research. The goal is to find improved treatments and cures for brain tumors.
177Lu Radiolabeled Monoclonal Antibody HuJ591 (177Lu-J591) and Ketoconazole in Patients With Prostate Cancer
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of the experimental drug, 177Lu-J591 in combination with ketoconazole and hydrocortisone against prostate cancer.
Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network (DIAN)
The purpose of this study is to identify potential biomarkers that may predict the development of Alzheimer's disease in people who carry an Alzheimer's mutation.
Radiation Therapy With Concomitant and Adjuvant Temozolomide Versus Radiation Therapy With Adjuvant PCV Chemotherapy in Patients With Anaplastic Glioma or Low Grade Glioma
Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether giving radiation with concomitant and adjuvant temozolomide versus radiation with adjuvant PCV is more effective in treating anaplastic glioma or low grade glioma.
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.
