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.

Effects of MRSA Bactericidal Gel To Promote Healing and Eliminate MRSA in cSSTI Vancogel(TM)

NCT00945152

Based on personal experience and the literature it is reasonable expectation that Vancomycin is a viable treatment in a direct contact form to eliminate MRSA from open wounds in order to heal the wounds by conventional means. The key question in my research has been to measure the effectiveness of my Vancomycin Gel by culturing the wound, applying the Gel in a controlled manner and then culturing the wound after one week. The end point to achieve in the process, is a clinical response of acceler ...

Postoperative or Salvage Radiotherapy (RT) for Node Negative Prostate Cancer Following Radical Prostatectomy

NCT00969111

The purpose of this study is to see what effects, good and/or bad, proton radiation, and/or conventional radiation and hormonal therapy (if applicable), has on prostate cancer that has already returned or the risk of prostate cancer returning.

Conditions: Prostate Cancer
Phase: Not Applicable

Chemotherapy and Pelvic Radiation Therapy With or Without Additional Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With High-Risk Early-Stage Cervical Cancer After Radical Hysterectomy

NCT00980954

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, paclitaxel, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether chemotherapy and radiation therapy are more effective when given with or without additional chemotherapy in treating cervical cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying chemotherapy ...

Conditions: Cervical Cancer

A Study to Assess PV-10 Chemoablation of Cancer of the Liver

NCT00986661

This open-label study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and effect on tumor growth following a single intralesional injection of PV-10 in subjects with either (a) hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) that is not amenable to resection, transplant or other potentially curative therapy or (b) cancer metastatic to the liver.

Conditions: Cancer Metastatic to the Liver, Hepatocellular Carcinoma, Metastatic Melanoma, Metastatic Ocular Melanoma, Metastatic Uveal Melanoma, Metastatic Lung Cancer, Metastatic Colon Cancer, Metastatic Colorectal Cancer, Metastatic Breast Cancer, Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

I-SPY TRIAL: Neoadjuvant and Personalized Adaptive Novel Agents to Treat Breast Cancer

NCT01042379

The purpose of this study is to further advance the ability to practice personalized medicine by learning which new drug agents are most effective with which types of breast cancer tumors and by learning more about which early indicators of response (tumor analysis prior to surgery via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images along with tissue and blood samples) are predictors of treatment success.

Conditions: Breast Neoplasms, Breast Cancer, Breast Tumors, Angiosarcoma, TNBC - Triple-Negative Breast Cancer, HER2-positive Breast Cancer, HER2-negative Breast Cancer, Hormone Receptor Positive Tumor, Hormone Receptor Negative Tumor, Early-stage Breast Cancer, Locally Advanced Breast Cancer

Type 1 Diabetes Recurrence in Pancreas Transplants

NCT01047865

The hypothesis is that humoral and cellular islet-specific responses are an early risk factor for recurrence of autoimmunity and hyperglycemia in simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) recipients independent of alloimmunity. This study will test the hypothesis and will assess their individual and combined predictive value.

Conditions: Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1

Natural History Study of and Genetic Modifiers in Spinocerebellar Ataxias

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.
