Illinois Clinical Trials
A listing of Illinois clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.
Illinois' capital, The Windy City of Chicago, attracts millions of visitors annually to enjoy the boat tour of architectural marvels like the Rookery Building, Wrigley Building, and Tribune Tower – at the time of their establishment, some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world. Further afield, in cities like Peoria, Rockford, Elgin, and Naperville, you can enjoy classic Illinois meals including foot-long hot dogs, deep dish pizza, and pierogis. There are excellent hospitals throughout Illinois, many just minutes from major cities. Though not the largest, Northwestern Memorial Hospital has been named #1 in Chicago and among the nation's top ten hospitals.

Pyrimethamine, Sulfadiazine, and Leucovorin in Treating Patients With Congenital Toxoplasmosis
RATIONALE: Congenital toxoplasmosis is an infection caused by the parasitic organism Toxoplasma gondii, and it may be passed from an infected mother to her unborn child. The mother may have mild symptoms or no symptoms; the fetus, however, may experience damage to the eyes, nervous system, skin, and ears. The newborn may have a low birth weight, enlarged liver and spleen, jaundice, anemia, petechiae, and eye damage. Giving the antiparasitic drugs pyrimethamine and sulfadiazine is standard treatm ...
A Prospective Database of Infants With Cholestasis
Biliary atresia, idiopathic neonatal hepatitis, and specific genetic cholestatic conditions are the most common causes of jaundice and hyperbilirubinemia that continue beyond the newborn period. The long term goal of the Childhood Liver Disease Research Network (ChiLDReN) is to establish a database of clinical information and plasma, serum, and tissue samples from cholestatic children to facilitate research and to perform clinical, epidemiological and therapeutic trials in these important pediat ...
Genetic Analysis in Identifying Late-Occurring Complications in Childhood Cancer Survivors
This clinical trial studies cancer survivors to identify those who are at increased risk of developing late-occurring complications after undergoing treatment for childhood cancer. A patient's genes may affect the risk of developing complications, such as congestive heart failure, avascular necrosis, stroke, and second cancer, years after undergoing cancer treatment. Genetic studies may help doctors identify survivors of childhood cancer who are more likely to develop late complications.
Genetics of Cardiovascular and Neuromuscular Disease
We are studying the genetics of human cardiovascular and neuromuscular disease. There are many different genetic regions that have been associated with the development of cardiomyopathy. An equal number of genetic regions have been associated with muscular dystrophy and there is overlap because some of the identical genes, when mutated, produce both cardiomyopathy and muscular dystrophy. We are working to identify genes and gene mutations associated with cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias and muscular ...
Mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I) Registry
The Mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I) Registry is an ongoing, observational database that tracks the outcomes of patients with MPS I. The data collected by the MPS I Registry will provide information to better characterize the natural history and progression of MPS I as well as the clinical responses of patients receiving enzyme replacement therapy, such as Aldurazyme (Recombinant Human Alpha-L-Iduronidase), or other treatment modalities. The objectives of the Registry are: To evaluate the long- ...
Developing Criteria for Cortical Resections
The purpose of this study is to study how disease processes like tumors or epilepsy spread in the brain.
Fabry Disease Registry & Pregnancy Sub-registry
The Fabry Registry is an ongoing, international multi-center, strictly observational program that tracks the routine clinical outcomes for patients with Fabry 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 primary objectives of the Registry are: To enhance the understanding of the variability, progression, and natural history of Fab ...
Predictors of Pregnancy Outcome in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) and Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS)
The PROMISSE Study is an observational study of 700 pregnant patients, enrolled at nine major clinical centers. The purpose of the study is 1) to determine whether certain proteins (called complement split products) that can injure healthy organs can be used to predict poor pregnancy outcome in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and anti-phospholipid syndrome (APS), and/or 2) to determine whether elevated levels of circulating antiangiogenic factors predict pregnancy complications ...
A Multicenter Trial of Academic Hospitalists
Care of hospitalized patients by "hospitalists" -- often defined as physicians who dedicate at least 25% of their practice to inpatient care -- is a recent, growing, and controversial trend in health care delivery in the United States. But despite the growth of interest in hospitalists, there have been few scientific evaluations of the concept. The comprehensive aim of this research study is to measure and analyze the effects of hospitalists on patient outcomes, costs and medical education on th ...
Pompe Disease Registry Protocol
The Pompe Registry is a global, multicenter, international, longitudinal, observational, and voluntary program for patients with Pompe disease, designed to track the disease's natural history and outcomes in patients, both treated and not. Data from the Registry are also used to fulfill various global regulatory commitments, to support product development/reimbursement, and for other research and non-research related purposes. The objectives of the Registry are: To enhance understanding of the ...
Circadian Rhythms and Sleep in Familial DSPS and ASPS
The purpose of this study is to determine the properties of circadian rhythms and sleep propensity in familial advanced and delayed sleep phase syndrome (DSPS).
Biliary Atresia Study in Infants and Children
Little is known about the factors that cause biliary atresia nor the factors that influence disease progression. The purpose of this study is to collect the pertinent clinical information, genetic material and body fluid samples to enable investigators to address the following aims: To identify the gene or genes implicated in the etiology of BA; To identify polymorphisms that may be important in disease progression such as HLA polymorphisms; To characterize the natural history of the older, non- ...
