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.
Tolerance and Safety of a Ketone-Promoting Food Ingredient
The objective of this study is to capture information on tolerance and safety of a ketone-promoting food ingredient in healthy adults.
Effect of Education on Treatment Decision Making for Patients With Prostate Cancer on Chronic Hormone Treatments
The purpose of this study is to learn how an educational intervention about orchiectomy as an alternative to medical castration for those who are already on medical castration will impact the number of patients willing to undergo an orchiectomy (surgery to remove the testicles).
The Effects of Direct Context Reactivation During Sleep on Memory
The context in which memories are encoded is a major factor influencing how memories are organized. Individual memories are bound to the context (e.g., the location, time and state of mind in which they are encoded) and this context is later reinstated to recall the details related to the memory. Although the role of context has been explored with regard to memory encoding and retrieval, its role during sleep-related memory consolidation has not been explored. Memories are thought to be reactiva ...
Role of Pancreatic Exocrine Secretion in Weight Gain After Pancreas Transplantation
Pancreas transplantation is currently the most reliable method for glycemic control in insulin dependent diabetic patients. Outcomes of pancreas transplantation have improved significantly over the years due to improved surgical techniques, medical management and immunosuppression. However, weight gain after pancreas transplantation remains a common problem with associated consequences such as development of type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease, graft loss, metabolic syndrome and increased r ...
The Longitudinal Relationship of HU Adherence to HRQOL, Barriers to Adherence and Habit in SCD.
The primary objective of this study is to better understand factors contributing to variations in hydroxyurea (HU) adherence behavior in adolescents and young adults (AYA) with sickle cell disease (SCD). To meet this objective, the researchers will conduct a prospective cohort study to determine the longitudinal relationship between HU adherence and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) overtime among AYA with SCD. The long-term goal of this research is to promote medication adherence behavior ...
Safety, Tolerability and Acceptability of Long-Acting Cabotegravir (CAB LA) for the Prevention of HIV Among Adolescent Males - A Sub-study of HPTN 083
This study will establish the minimum safety, tolerability and acceptability data needed to support the use of cabotegravir long-acting injection (CAB LA) in an adolescent population, potentially transforming the field of HIV prevention for young people.
A Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of REL-1017 as Adjunctive Treatment for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)
This is an outpatient, 2-arm, Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to assess the efficacy and safety of REL-1017 once daily (QD) as an adjunctive treatment of Major Depressive Disorder. Study participants will continue to take their current antidepressant therapy in addition to the study drug or placebo for the duration of the treatment period.
Cardiogenic Shock Working Group Registry
The Cardiogenic Shock Working Group is a multicenter registry where we collect de-identified clinical variables from the medical records and follow-up phone calls of shock patients from multiple institutions and centralize this data to a single registry for analysis of clinical outcomes.
Efficacy and Safety of Belumosudil in Subjects With Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis
This is a phase 2, open-label, single-cohort, multicenter trial of belumosudil in subjects with Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis (dcSSc). An estimated total of 12 to 15 subjects will receive belumosudil 200 mg administered orally (PO) twice daily (BID) for 52 weeks. The primary analysis will be at 24 weeks.
TTHX1114(NM141) in Combination With DWEK/DSO
Open label, single-treatment, with a concurrent non-treatment control
TXA in Spine Surgery
As tranexamic acid (TXA) becomes more prevalent, all patients are receiving the same dose and method of delivery regardless of their pre-operative risk of transfusion. Therefore, the aim of the study is to determine whether or not repeated dosing of oral or a different method of delivery like intravenous (IV) TXA reduces the post-operative reduction in hemoglobin, hematocrit, number of transfusions, and postoperative blood loss following open spine surgery.
Efficacy and Safety of Tolperisone in Subjects With Pain Due to Acute Back Muscle Spasm
This is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter study of the efficacy and safety of tolperisone (a non-opioid) or placebo administered in subjects with pain due to acute back muscle spasm.
