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.

Natural History Study of and Genetic Modifiers in Spinocerebellar Ataxias
Spinocerebellar ataxias (SCA) are genetic neurological diseases that cause imbalance, poor coordination, and speech difficulties. There are different kinds of SCA and this study will focus on types 1, 2,3, and 6 (SCA 1, SCA 2, SCA 3 , also known as Machado-Joseph disease and SCA 6). The diseases are rare, slowly progressive, cause increasingly severe neurological difficulties and are variable across and within genotypes. The purpose of this research study is to bring together a group of experts ...
Proteinuria in Pre and Post Transplant
Patients with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) who progress rapidly to end stage renal disease (ESRD) are at highest risk for development of recurrence of proteinuria following kidney transplantation. This study will look at serum specimens pre and post transplant, as well as kidney transplant specimens pre and post reperfusion to identify where the defects has occured that results in recurrence of proteinuria in a given kidney transplant.
Radiation Therapy With or Without Chemotherapy in Patients With Stage I-IIA Cervical Cancer Who Previously Underwent Surgery
This randomized phase III trial studies radiation therapy with chemotherapy to see how well they work compared to radiation therapy alone in treating patients with stage I-IIA cervical cancer who previously underwent surgery. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not ...
Web Based Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Registry
The purpose of this study is to establish an international, web based clinical registry to collect baseline characteristics of patients undergoing orthopaedic, sports medicine, arthroscopy, and related surgery, and the subsequent outcomes and cost-effectiveness associated with the surgical procedures and nonoperative treatments.
Natural History Evaluation of Charcot Marie Tooth Disease (CMT) Types CMT1B, CMT2A, CMT4A, CMT4C, and Others
This is an observational longitudinal study to determine the natural history and genotype-phenotype correlations of disease causing mutations in Charcot Marie Tooth disease (CMT) type 1B (CMT1B), 2A (CMT2A), 4A (CMT4A), and 4C (CMT4C). The investigators will also be determine the capability of the newly developed CMT Pediatric Scale (CMT Peds scale) and the Minimal Dataset to measure impairment and perform longitudinal measurements in patients with multiple forms of CMT over a five year window
Genetics of Charcot Marie Tooth (CMT) - Modifiers of CMT1A, New Causes of CMT2
This project includes two projects. One is looking for new genes that cause Charcot Marie Tooth disease (CMT). The other is looking for genes that do not cause CMT, but may modify the symptoms a person has.
Development of Charcot Marie Tooth Disease (CMT) Pediatric Scale for Children With CMT
The primary goal of this project is to develop and test a Charcot Marie Tooth disease (CMT) Pediatric Scale for use in evaluation in natural history CMT study.
Nephrotic Syndrome Study Network
Minimal change disease (MCD), focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), and Membranous nephropathy (MN), generate an enormous individual and societal financial burden, accounting for approximately 12% of prevalent end stage renal disease (ESRD) cases (2005) at an annual cost in the US of more than $3 billion. However, the clinical classification of these diseases is widely believed to be inadequate by the scientific community. Given the poor understanding of MCD/FSGS and MN biology, it is not s ...
Multi-Institutional Registry for Prostate Cancer Radiosurgery
To address pertinent questions regarding the utilization of stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) to treat prostate cancer. The Florida Robotic Radiosurgery Association (FRRA) launched the first registry for prostate cancer patients treated with SBRT. The registry is designed to track surrogate treatment endpoints including prostate specific antigen (PSA), international prostate symptom score (IPSS),sexual health in men (SHIM), and visual analogue scale (VAS) scores, in addition to physical and ...
Registry Study for Radiation Therapy Outcomes
The purpose of this research study is to collect and analyze information from patients being treated with various forms of radiation therapy.
The Gilenya Pregnancy Registry
The purpose of the Multi-National Gilenya Pregnancy Exposure Registry in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is to continuously monitor, evaluate, and assess for major and minor teratogenic effects in the offspring of women exposed to Gilenya before (up to 8 weeks before last menstrual period) and during pregnancy in routine clinical practice. The overall aim is to collect and evaluate data on maternal, fetal, and infant outcomes and compare it with reference populations.
Surveillance Monitoring for ART Toxicities Study in HIV Uninfected Children Born to HIV Infected Women
SMARTT will estimate the incidence of conditions and diagnoses potentially related to in utero exposure to antiretroviral therapy and/or exposure in the first two months of life among children born of HIV-infected mothers.
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.
