Georgia Clinical Trials

A listing of Georgia clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

Known as "The Peach State," Georgia was immortalized in the hit Ray Charles rendition of "Georgia On My Mind." Its biggest cities include Atlanta, Savannah, and Augusta, although Athens and Macon are both famous for their own reasons. Georgia is the #1 producer of peanuts and pecans in the U.S., and peanut-loving President Jimmy Carter was born and raised in the state. Vidalia onions, widely believed to be the world's sweetest onions, can only be grown in Georgia soil. The Emory University Health System is one of the South's leading healthcare innovators; its flagship Midtown location is found in Atlanta.

Study of Kidney Tumors in Younger Patients

NCT00898365

This research trial studies kidney tumors in younger patients. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, blood, and urine from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and identify biomarkers related to cancer.

NCT00912041

The purpose of this study is to obtain preliminary device safety information and demonstrate proof of principle (feasibility) of the ability of people with tetraplegia to control a computer cursor and other assistive devices with their thoughts.

Conditions: Tetraplegia, Spinal Cord Injuries, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Brain Stem Infarctions, Locked in Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy
Phase: Not Applicable

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

Natural History Study of and Genetic Modifiers in Spinocerebellar Ataxias

NCT01060371

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 ...

Conditions: Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 1, Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 2, Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 3, Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 6

Childhood Cancer Survivor Study

NCT01120353

The Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) will investigate the long-term effects of cancer and its associated therapies. A retrospective cohort study will be conducted through a multi-institutional collaboration, which will involve the identification and active follow-up of a cohort of approximately 50,000 survivors of cancer, diagnosed before 21 years of age, between 1970 and 1999 and 10,000 sibling controls. This project will study children and young adults exposed to specific therapeutic mod ...

Longitudinal Study of Mitochondrial Hepatopathies

NCT01148550

The specific aims of this study are (1) to determine the clinical phenotypes and natural history of hepatic RC and FAO disorders, (2) to determine the correlation between genotype and phenotype, (3) to determine if circulating biomarkers reflect diagnosis and predict liver disease progression and survival with the native liver, (4) to determine the clinical outcome of these disorders following liver transplantation, and (5) to develop a repository of serum, plasma, urine, tissue and DNA specimen ...

Cerebral Hemorrhage Risk in Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia

NCT01158807

This study is one of the three projects of an NIH Rare Disease Clinical Research Consortium. A "consortium" is a group of centres sharing information and resources to perform research. The consortium research focuses on brain blood vessel malformations in three different rare diseases. The focus of this specific study is on Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT). HHT is a condition characterized by blood vessel malformations, called telangiectasia and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), occurring in ...

Safety and Efficacy Evaluation of Oxybutynin Topical Gel In Children With Neurogenic Bladder

NCT01192568

This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Oxybutynin Chloride 10% Topical Gel in children 3 to less than 17 years old, who have overactive bladder due to a neurogenic condition. Children will be treated with 0.75 g of gel/day for two weeks. Patients will then return to the clinic for a potential dose titration. At this time their dose may be adjusted up to 1g/day, down to 0.5g/day, or remain the same at 0.75g of gel/day depending on the individual response and tolerability. The total t ...

Nephrotic Syndrome Study Network

NCT01209000

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 ...
