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.

The Assessment of Prednisone In Remission Trial - Centers of Excellence Approach
This study is a multi-center randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effects of using low-dose prednisone as compared to stopping prednisone treatment entirely. Participants will be randomized 1:1 to taper their prednisone dose down to 5 mg/day or to 0 mg/day for the duration of the study (approximately six months) or until a study endpoint.
Pomalidomide in Combination With Low-dose Dexamethasone or Pomalidomide in Combination With Low-dose Dexamethasone and Daratumumab in Subjects With Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma Following Lenalidomide-based Therapy in the First or Second Line Setting
This trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of combination of pomalidomide (POM) and low-dose dexamethasone (LD-Dex) (Cohort A) or the combination of pomalidomide (POM) , daratumumab (DARA) and low-dose dexamethasone (LD-Dex) (Cohort B) in subjects with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma who have received a first or second line treatment of lenalidomide-based therapy. This trial will test the hypothesis for Cohort A that the proportion of patients will have an Overall Response Rate (O ...
Dabrafenib, Trametinib, and Navitoclax in Treating Patients With BRAF Mutant Melanoma or Solid Tumors That Are Metastatic or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of dabrafenib, trametinib, and navitoclax and to see how well they work in treating patients with BRAF mutant melanoma or solid tumors that have spread to other parts of the body (metastatic) or cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Dabrafenib, trametinib, and navitoclax may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
Registry for Participants With Short Bowel Syndrome
This is a global prospective, observational, multi-center registry to evaluate the long-term safety profile for participants with short bowel syndrome (SBS) who are treated with teduglutide in a routine clinical setting. The registry will also evaluate the long-term clinical outcomes in participants with SBS. SBS participants treated and not treated with teduglutide will be enrolled.
Portico Re-sheathable Transcatheter Aortic Valve System US IDE Trial
The objective of the PORTICO pivotal IDE trial is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the St Jude Medical (SJM) Portico Transcatheter Heart Valve and Delivery Systems (Portico) in the treatment of severe symptomatic aortic stenosis via transfemoral and alternative delivery methods in high risk and extreme risk patients.
Integrated Cancer Repository for Cancer Research
The iCaRe2 is a multi-institutional resource created and maintained by the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center to collect and manage standardized, multi-dimensional, longitudinal data and biospecimens on consented adult cancer patients, high-risk individuals, and normal controls. The distinct characteristic of the iCaRe2 is its geographical coverage, with a significant percentage of small and rural hospitals and cancer centers. The iCaRe2 advances comprehensive studies of risk factors of cancer ...
Nebulized Inhaled Milrinone in a Hospitalized Advanced Heart Failure Population
Patients with end stage heart failure have significant symptoms (including fatigue and shortness of breath) which prevent them from being able to perform most activities of daily living. Milrinone is one of the inotropic medications that has been studied and used in the treatment of end stage heart failure. End stage heart failure patients awaiting a heart transplantation often have to be maintained on IV milrinone 24 hours a day through a chronic IV line. Two problems arise with this therapy. F ...
Carotid Revascularization and Medical Management for Asymptomatic Carotid Stenosis Trial
Carotid revascularization for primary prevention of stroke (CREST-2) is two independent multicenter, randomized controlled trials of carotid revascularization and intensive medical management versus medical management alone in patients with asymptomatic high-grade carotid stenosis. One trial will randomize patients in a 1:1 ratio to endarterectomy versus no endarterectomy and another will randomize patients in a 1:1 ratio to carotid stenting with embolic protection versus no stenting. Medical ma ...
Abatacept for the Treatment of Relapsing, Non-Severe, Granulomatosis With Polyangiitis (Wegener's)
Multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of abatacept to achieve sustained glucocorticoid-free remission in patients with relapsing non-severe granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's) (GPA) . Participants will be randomized 1:1 to receive either abatacept 125 mg or placebo administered by subcutaneous injection once a week. Participants will continue on study treatment for a minimum of 12 months unless they experience a disease relapse or dise ...
Therapy in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (TAME)
The purpose of this study is to determine if memantine at 20 mg BID when used in conjunction with riluzole, can slow down the disease progression of patients with ALS including potentially improving their neuropsychiatric changes, as well as determine if serum biomarkers can be used both as a diagnostic and a prognostic marker in patients with ALS.

Doppler Ultrasound Imaging of Plastic Surgery Patients for DVT Detection
This prospective controlled study examines the use of Doppler ultrasound as a means to screen elective plastic surgery patients for the presence of deep venous blood clots both before and after surgery. This is a noninvasive technique that is known to be both sensitive and specific for the detection of deep venous thromboses in the lower extremities. This method may make it unnecessary to select patients for prophylactic anticoagulation, which poses additional risks to the patient.
Multicenter Study Of Natalizumab Plus Standard Steroid Treatment For High Risk Acute Graft-Versus-Host Disease
This research trial is designed to study the safety and effectiveness of combining the study drug, Natalizumab (Tysabri®) with the standard treatment, the use of steroids, as a new treatment for acute graft versus host disease (acute GVHD). GVHD is the most common serious complication, after bone marrow transplant. GVHD occurs when the donor cells (the graft), treat the recipient's body as "foreign" and attack the cells in the recipient's body. During this immune system response, donor cells dam ...
