Maine Clinical Trials

A listing of Maine clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

As the furthest northeastern state in the United States, Maine is bordered by Vermont, New Hampshire, and Canada. Quebec City is just a short drive. Closer to home are cities like Portland, Augusta, Bar Harbor, and Bangor. Maine is probably best known around the U.S. for Maine lobster and other delicious seafood, but it's also notable as the largest New England state, with 89% of its land covered in pine forest. It is also making a reputation as a leader in the healthcare arena. With 637 beds and a history stretching to 1868, Maine Medical Center is the largest hospital.

Integrated Cancer Repository for Cancer Research

NCT02012699

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 ...

Carotid Revascularization and Medical Management for Asymptomatic Carotid Stenosis Trial

NCT02089217

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 ...

Pediatric Obesity Weight Evaluation Registry (POWER) Study

NCT02121132

Response and Biology-Based Risk Factor-Guided Therapy in Treating Younger Patients With Non-high Risk Neuroblastoma

NCT02176967

This phase III trial studies how well response and biology-based risk factor-guided therapy works in treating younger patients with non-high risk neuroblastoma. Sometimes a tumor may not need treatment until it progresses. In this case, observation may be sufficient. Measuring biomarkers in tumor cells may help plan when effective treatment is necessary and what the best treatment is. Response and biology-based risk factor-guided therapy may be effective in treating patients with non-high risk n ...

Conditions: Ganglioneuroblastoma, Localized Resectable Neuroblastoma, Localized Unresectable Neuroblastoma, Neuroblastoma

Genetic Testing in Screening Patients With Stage IB-IIIA Non-small Cell Lung Cancer That Has Been or Will Be Removed by Surgery (The ALCHEMIST Screening Trial)

NCT02194738

This ALCHEMIST trial studies genetic testing in screening patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been or will be removed by surgery. Studying the genes in a patient's tumor cells may help doctors select the best treatment for patients that have certain genetic changes.

Conditions: Lung Adenocarcinoma, Lung Large Cell Carcinoma, Resectable Lung Non-Small Cell Carcinoma, Stage IB Lung Non-Small Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7, Stage IB Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7, Stage II Lung Non-Small Cell Cancer AJCC v7, Stage II Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7, Stage IIA Lung Non-Small Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7, Stage IIA Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7, Stage IIB Lung Non-Small Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7, Stage IIB Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7, Stage IIIA Lung Non-Small Cell Cancer AJCC v7, Stage IIIA Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7

Crizotinib in Treating Patients With Stage IB-IIIA Non-small Cell Lung Cancer That Has Been Removed by Surgery and ALK Fusion Mutations (An ALCHEMIST Treatment Trial)

NCT02201992

This randomized phase III trial studies how well crizotinib works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been removed by surgery and has a mutation in a protein called anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Mutations, or changes, in ALK can make it very active and important for tumor cell growth and progression. Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the ALK protein from working. Crizotinib may be an effective treatment for patients with non-sma ...

Conditions: ALK Gene Rearrangement, ALK Gene Translocation, ALK Positive, Stage IB Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma AJCC v7, Stage II Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer AJCC v7, Stage IIA Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma AJCC v7, Stage IIB Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma AJCC v7, Stage IIIA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer AJCC v7

A Phase II/III Trial of Nivolumab, Ipilimumab, and GM-CSF in Patients With Advanced Melanoma

NCT02339571

This phase II/III trial studies the side effects of nivolumab and ipilimumab when given together with or without sargramostim and to see how well they work in treating patients with stage III-IV melanoma that cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). 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 tumor cells to grow and spread. Colony-stimulating factors, such as sargramosti ...

Conditions: Metastatic Cutaneous Melanoma, Stage III Cutaneous Melanoma AJCC v7, Stage IV Cutaneous Melanoma AJCC v6 and v7, Unresectable Cutaneous Melanoma
Phase: Phase 2/3

Project: Every Child for Younger Patients With Cancer

Platinum Based Chemotherapy or Capecitabine in Treating Patients With Residual Triple-Negative Basal-Like Breast Cancer Following Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy

NCT02445391

This randomized phase III trial studies how well cisplatin or carboplatin (platinum based chemotherapy) works compared to capecitabine in treating patients with remaining (residual) basal-like triple-negative breast cancer following chemotherapy after surgery (neoadjuvant). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, carboplatin and capecitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spre ...

Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Patients With Advanced Refractory Solid Tumors, Lymphomas, or Multiple Myeloma (The MATCH Screening Trial)

NCT02465060

This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's p ...
