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.

Immunoinflammatory Response in Post Cardiac Arrest Syndrome (PCAS)

NCT02664831

This is a prospective, observational study to investigate molecular mechanisms mediating the systemic inflammatory process, and their impact on brain injury, survival, and functional outcomes after cardiac arrest. Investigators have shown that cardiac arrest induces changes in the numbers and properties of circulating immune cells, shifting the balance towards a pro-inflammatory phenotype and there is increased interest in the inflammatory pathways and the signaling mechanisms through which they ...

Memory Improvement Through Nicotine Dosing (MIND) Study

NCT02720445

The purpose of the study is to see if daily transdermal nicotine is able to produce a significant cognitive, clinical and functional improvement in participants with MCI. Neuronal nicotinic receptors have long been known to play a critical role in memory function in preclinical studies, with nicotine improving attention, learning, and memory function. The study will enroll 300 participants for a 2 year period. Participants will be randomized (50:50) to either the transdermal nicotine, beginning ...

Conditions: Mild Cognitive Impairment

A Phase 2 Study of Ruxolitinib With Chemotherapy in Children With Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

NCT02723994

This is a nonrandomized study of ruxolitinib in combination with a standard multi-agent chemotherapy regimen for the treatment of B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Part 1 of the study will optimize the dose of study drug (ruxolitinib) in combination with the chemotherapy regimen. Part 2 will evaluate the efficacy of combination chemotherapy and ruxolitinib at the recommended dose determined in Part 1.

Conditions: Leukemia

Reduced Craniospinal Radiation Therapy and Chemotherapy in Treating Younger Patients With Newly Diagnosed WNT-Driven Medulloblastoma

NCT02724579

This phase II trial studies how well reduced doses of radiation therapy to the brain and spine (craniospinal) and chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed type of brain tumor called WNT)/Wingless (WNT)-driven medulloblastoma. Recent studies using chemotherapy and radiation therapy have been shown to be effective in treating patients with WNT-driven medulloblastoma. However, there is a concern about the late side effects of treatment, such as learning difficulties, lower amount ...

The National Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) Study

NCT02775383

Multi-center study enrolling patients suspected or newly diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), myelodysplastic syndromes/myeloproliferative neoplasms (MDS/MPN) overlap disorder, or idiopathic cytopenia of undetermined significance (ICUS). Participants will be followed long term. Clinical data, blood, and tissue samples will be collected to establish a biorepository to facilitate the study of the natural history of MDS.

Conditions: Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS)

Studies of Neuregulin/ERBB Signaling in Human Heart

NCT02820233

This study examines the role of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor family and the EGF family of ligands in the regulation of non-myocytes isolated from the human heart.

Nivolumab and Ipilimumab in Treating Patients With Rare Tumors

NCT02834013

This phase II trial studies nivolumab and ipilimumab in treating patients with rare tumors. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. This trial enrolls participants for the following cohorts based on condition: Epithelial tumors of nasal cavity, sinuses, nasopharynx: A) Squamous cell carcinoma with variants of nasal cavity, sinuses, and n ...
