Louisiana Clinical Trials

A listing of Louisiana clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

New Orleans is a "must see" in Louisiana, as the home of jazz that hosts Mardi Gras ("Fat Tuesday") and its landmark parade every year. Named after the French King Louis, Louisiana's long French history continues to shine through in places like Baton Rouge ("Red Stick"), Bossier City, Lafayette, and Lake Charles. Having rebuilt several times over the years after devastating storms, Louisiana remains one of the cultural centers of the United States and a great place to enjoy Creole cooking. Healthcare has steadily improved over the years, with the Ochsner Health System as the leading nonprofit academic healthcare system.

Genetic Analysis in Identifying Late-Occurring Complications in Childhood Cancer Survivors

NCT00082745

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.

Conditions: Childhood Malignant Neoplasm

Spinal Cord Injury Registry - North American Clinical Trials Network

NCT00178724

The NACTN Spinal Cord Injury Registry is a network of clinical centers collecting de-identified data from patients admitted through the Emergency Department of a NACTN center at the time of injury with an initial (first time) spinal cord injury (SCI). Information will be collected on the natural history of SCI and course of treatment through the first 12 months from the date of injury or long as medically indicated. Data collected includes imaging information from CT or MRI scans, neurological a ...

Conditions: Spinal Cord Injury

Fabry Disease Registry & Pregnancy Sub-registry

NCT00196742

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 ...

Conditions: Fabry Disease

Product Performance Report: Evaluate Long-term Reliability & Performance of Medtronic Marketed Cardiac Therapy Products

NCT00271180

The main purpose of the Product Performance Report (formerly referred to as System Longevity Study) is to evaluate long-term performance of Medtronic market-released cardiac rhythm products by analyzing product survival probabilities.

Conditions: Arrhythmia, Bradycardia, Heart Failure, Sinus Tachycardia

International Collaborative Gaucher Group (ICGG) Gaucher Disease Registry & Pregnancy Sub-registry

NCT00358943

The ICGG Gaucher Registry is an ongoing, international multi-center, strictly observational program that tracks the routine clinical outcomes for patients with Gaucher 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 objectives of the Registry are: To enhance understanding of the variability, progression, identification, and natural h ...

Psoriasis Longitudinal Assessment and Registry

NCT00508547

The purpose of this study is to further evaluate the safety of infliximab, ustekinumab, and guselkumab in patients with plaque and other forms of psoriasis. The study also includes patients receiving other therapies, such as non-biologic and other biologic agents. The registry also evaluates patient and disease characteristics, including patient-reported assessment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA); and clinical and quality of life outcomes.

Conditions: Psoriasis

Transthyretin Amyloidosis Outcome Survey (THAOS)

NCT00628745

THAOS is a global, multi-center, longitudinal observational survey open to all patients with transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR), including ATTR-PN (polyneuropathy), ATTR-CM (cardiomyopathy) and wild-type ATTR-CM. It is open-ended with a minimum duration of 10 years. Patients will be followed as long as they are able to participate. The principal aims of this outcome survey are to better understand and characterize the natural history of the disease by studying a large and heterogenous patient popu ...

Conditions: Transthyretin Amyloidosis, Transthyretin Gene Mutations

Long-Term Follow-Up of Patients Who Have Participated in Children's Oncology Group Studies

NCT00736749

This clinical trial keeps track of and collects follow-up information from patients who are currently enrolled on or have participated in a Children's Oncology Group study. Developing a way to keep track of patients who have participated in Children's Oncology Group studies may allow doctors learn more about the long-term effects of cancer treatment and help them reduce problems related to treatment and improve patient quality of life.

Conditions: Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Brain Neoplasm, Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation Recipient, Hodgkin Lymphoma, Osteosarcoma, Rhabdomyosarcoma

Neuropsychological and Behavioral Testing in Younger Patients With Cancer

NCT00772200

This research trial studies neuropsychological (learning, remembering or thinking) and behavioral outcomes in children and adolescents with cancer by collecting information over time from a series of tests.

Conditions: Childhood Malignant Neoplasm

Radiation Therapy With Concomitant and Adjuvant Temozolomide Versus Radiation Therapy With Adjuvant PCV Chemotherapy in Patients With Anaplastic Glioma or Low Grade Glioma

NCT00887146

Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether giving radiation with concomitant and adjuvant temozolomide versus radiation with adjuvant PCV is more effective in treating anaplastic glioma or low grade glioma.

Conditions: Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors

CA-IX, p16, Proliferative Markers, and HPV in Diagnosing Cervical Lesions in Patients With Abnormal Cervical Cells

NCT00892866

This research trial studies carbonic anhydrase 9 (CA-IX), p16, proliferative markers, and human papilloma virus (HPV) in diagnosing cervical lesions in patients with abnormal cervical cells. Studying biomarkers in abnormal cervical cells may improve the ability to find cervical lesions and plan effective treatment.

Conditions: Atypical Endocervical Glandular Cell of Undetermined Significance, Atypical Endometrial Hyperplasia, Human Papillomavirus Infection, Stage 0 Cervical Cancer AJCC v7

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.
