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.

Evaluation of Immunologic Response Following COVID-19 Vaccination in Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults With Cancer


This study evaluates immunologic response following COVID-19 vaccination in children, adolescents, and young adults with cancer. Vaccines work by stimulating the body's immune cells to respond against a specific disease. The immune response produces protection from that disease. Effects from cancer and from treatments for cancer can reduce the body's natural disease fighting ability (called immunity). Factors such as vaccine type, timing of vaccine dosing related to treatment for cancer and numb ...

Conditions: COVID-19 Infection, Hematopoietic and Lymphoid System Neoplasm, Malignant Solid Neoplasm

Thoracotomy Versus Thoracoscopic Management of Pulmonary Metastases in Patients With Osteosarcoma


This phase III trial compares the effect of open thoracic surgery (thoracotomy) to thoracoscopic surgery (video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery or VATS) in treating patients with osteosarcoma that has spread to the lung (pulmonary metastases). Open thoracic surgery is a type of surgery done through a single larger incision (like a large cut) that goes between the ribs, opens up the chest, and removes the cancer. Thoracoscopy is a type of chest surgery where the doctor makes several small incision ...

Conditions: Metastatic Malignant Neoplasm in the Lung, Metastatic Osteosarcoma, Osteosarcoma

Evaluating Public Health Interventions to Improve COVID-19 Testing Among Underserved Populations


The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected people from underserved and vulnerable populations such as low-income/uninsured, unhoused, and immigrant communities. These populations in the US are at a higher risk of acquiring COVID-19 because of poverty, type of occupation, greater use of public transit, living in multigenerational housing, lack of access to quality healthcare, and more. Despite greater risk of being infected and dying of COVID-19, those in disadvantaged communities are ...

A Study of Abemaciclib (LY2835219) With Abiraterone in Men With Prostate Cancer That Has Spread to Other Parts of the Body and is Expected to Respond to Hormonal Treatment (Metastatic Hormone-Sensitive Prostate Cancer)


The purpose of this study is to learn whether adding abemaciclib to abiraterone plus prednisone prolongs the time before prostate cancer gets worse. Participation may last approximately 60 months.

Conditions: Prostatic Neoplasms, Neoplasm Metastasis, Urogenital Neoplasms, Physiological Effects of Drugs, Antineoplastic Agents, Antineoplastic Agents, Hormonal, Androgens, Hormones, Hormones, Hormone Substitutes, and Hormone Antagonists, Abiraterone Acetate, Steroid Synthesis Inhibitors, Cytochrome P-450, Enzyme Inhibitors, Prednisone, Prednisolone, Cyclin-Dependent Kinase 4, Cyclin-Dependent Kinase 6

Human Epilepsy Project 3


By carrying a careful, large-scale and ambitious prospective study of a cohort of participants with generalized epilepsy, the study team hopes to clarify the likelihood of response and remission in this type of epilepsy, and try to explore the underlying biological drivers of treatment response, including novel realms of exploration such as impact of the microbiome, and genetics. The identification of biomarkers that predict the likelihood of disease response would allow epilepsy patients to mak ...

Conditions: Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

Nerve Block for Pain Control After Fracture Surgery


Surgical treatment for patients with a fracture of the ankle or distal radius is commonly offered on an outpatient basis. Patients are routinely discharged from hospital within 4 hours of their procedure. The surgery is commonly performed under peripheral nerve block with sedation, or under general anesthesia with postoperative peripheral nerve block, (if required for analgesic purposes). It is unclear which of these two strategies offers patients superior pain relief in the first few days follo ...
