Kansas Clinical Trials
A listing of Kansas clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.
Sharing its biggest city of Kansas City with its neighbors in Missouri, Kansas is the iconic prairie state and childhood home of Superman. Topeka, Wichita, and Overland Park are some of the other cities, with Overland Park serving as a hub for technology businesses. Kansas has long been one of the most important agricultural centers of the nation, producing more wheat than any other state. These days, it also contributes to aerospace research through an astonishing number of local companies. Healthcare has been growing rapidly in Kansas, with University of Kansas Hospital leading the way as the state's largest provider.

International Guillain-Barré Syndrome Outcome Study
International GBS Outcome Study (IGOS) is a study conducted by the members of the Inflammatory Neuropathy Consortium (INC) and Peripheral Nerve Society (PNS) on disease course and outcome in Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). The IGOS aims to identify clinical and biological determinants and predictors of disease course and outcome in individual patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome, as early as possible after onset of disease.
Parkinson's Foundation Quality Improvement Initiative
In a recent study it was found that neurologist care for Parkinson's provides a 20% reduction in nursing home placement, hip fracture, and death (Willis 2011). However, as the authors recognized, the investigators don't know what it is about expert care that delivers this benefit. The Parkinson's Foundation's Quality Improvement Initiative was designed to identify the components of great care that yield great outcomes. By capturing demographics, clinical interventions and outcomes over time from ...
Studying the Physical Function and Quality of Life Before and After Surgery in Patients With Stage I Cervical Cancer
This clinical trial studies the physical function and quality-of-life before and after surgery in patients with stage I cervical cancer. Studying quality-of-life in patients undergoing surgery for cervical cancer may help determine the intermediate-term and long-term effects of surgery.
Pazopanib Hydrochloride and Bevacizumab in Treating Patients With Previously Untreated Metastatic Kidney Cancer
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of pazopanib hydrochloride and bevacizumab and to see how well they work in treating patients with previously untreated kidney cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Pazopanib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Pazopanib hydrochloride may also stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Monoclonal antibodies, such as ...
Connect® Myeloid Disease Registry
The purpose of the Connect® Myeloid disease registry is to provide unique insights into treatment decisions and treatment patterns as they relate to clinical outcomes of patients with myeloid diseases in routine clinical practice. This disease registry will also evaluate molecular and cellular markers that may provide further prognostic classification which may or may not be predictive of therapy and clinical outcomes.
RELIEF - A Global Registry to Evaluate Long-Term Effectiveness of Neurostimulation Therapy for Pain
To compile characteristics of real-world clinical outcomes for Boston Scientific commercially approved neurostimulation systems for pain in routine clinical practice, when used according to the applicable Directions for Use - and - To evaluate the economic value and technical performance of Boston Scientific commercially approved neurostimulation systems for pain in routine clinical practice
Testing Docetaxel-Cetuximab or the Addition of an Immunotherapy Drug, Atezolizumab, to the Usual Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy in High-Risk Head and Neck Cancer
This phase II/III trial studies how well radiation therapy works when given together with cisplatin, docetaxel, cetuximab, and/or atezolizumab after surgery in treating patients with high-risk stage III-IV head and neck cancer the begins in the thin, flat cells (squamous cell). Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and docetaxel, wor ...
Standard or Comprehensive Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Early-Stage Breast Cancer Previously Treated With Chemotherapy and Surgery
This randomized phase III trial studies standard or comprehensive radiation therapy in treating patients with early-stage breast cancer who have undergone surgery. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether comprehensive radiation therapy is more effective than standard radiation therapy in treating patients with breast cancer
Cognitive Impairment and Imaging Correlates in End Stage Renal Disease
The purpose of this study is to understand cognitive impairment in end stage renal disease before and after a kidney transplant.
Brentuximab Vedotin and Nivolumab With or Without Ipilimumab in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Hodgkin Lymphoma
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of ipilimumab and nivolumab when given together with brentuximab vedotin, and how well they work in treating patients with Hodgkin lymphoma that has returned after a period of improvement (recurrent) or has not responded to previous treatment (refractory). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as ipilimumab and nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to ...
Comparison of Axillary Lymph Node Dissection With Axillary Radiation for Patients With Node-Positive Breast Cancer Treated With Chemotherapy
This randomized phase III trial studies lymph node dissection and radiation therapy to see how well it works compared to radiation therapy alone in treating patients with breast cancer previously treated with chemotherapy and surgery. Lymph node dissection may remove cancer cells that have spread to nearby lymph nodes in patients with breast cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays or protons to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known if radiation therapy works better alone or with lymph ...
Metformin Hydrochloride in Preventing Breast Cancer in Patients With Atypical Hyperplasia or In Situ Breast Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies metformin hydrochloride to see how well it works compared to placebo in preventing breast cancer in patients with atypical hyperplasia or in situ breast cancer. Chemoprevention is the use of certain drugs to keep cancer from forming. The use of metformin hydrochloride may prevent breast cancer.
