Maryland Clinical Trials
A listing of Maryland clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.
Sharing Healthcare Wishes in Primary Care
This study evaluates the efficacy of Sharing Healthcare Wishes in Primary Care (SHARE), a two-group randomized trial at 5 primary care practices in which 124 dyads receive a control protocol of minimally enhanced usual care and 124 dyads receive the SHARE protocol. This study tests the efficacy of SHARE on quality of communication (primary outcome) and advance care planning processes (secondary outcomes) at 6 months among primary care patients with cognitive impairment (mild-severe) and family c ...
COVID-19: Pediatric Research Immune Network on SARS-CoV-2 and MIS-C (PRISM)
The primary objectives of this study are: To determine the proportion of children with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) related death, rehospitalization or major complications after infection with SARS-CoV-2 and/or Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C), and To determine immunologic mechanisms and immune signatures associated with disease spectrum and subsequent clinical course during the year of follow-up.
A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Durability, and Safety of KSI-301 Compared to Aflibercept in Patients With Macular Edema Due to Retinal Vein Occlusion (RVO)
This Phase 3 study will evaluate the efficacy, durability, and safety of KSI-301 compared to aflibercept, in participants with macular edema due to treatment-naïve branch (BRVO) or central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).
Stargardt-like Macular Dystrophy (STDG3) Secondary to Mutations in ELOVL4
Background: STDG3 is an inherited eye disease. Currently there is no treatment for STDG3. Past studies of STDG3 have largely looked at members of large families at a single time point. Researchers want to learn more about the disease at an individual level. Objective: To understand the natural history of changes in the retina that occur in people with STDG3. Eligibility: People ages 10 and older with STDG3 due to a variant in the ELOVL4 gene. Design: Participants will have 5 visits. First ...
Assessment of Efficacy and Safety of Monalizumab Plus Cetuximab Compared to Placebo Plus Cetuximab in Recurrent or Metastatic Head and Neck Cancer
This is a randomized, double-blind, multicenter, global Phase 3 study to assess the efficacy and safety of monalizumab and cetuximab, compared to placebo and cetuximab, in patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer.
Comparison Between 2-dose Versus 3-dose Regimens of Heplisav B in Cirrhosis
Investigators want to compare the seroconversion rates between two-dose and three-dose regimens of the hepatitis B vaccine (Heplisav B) among patients with cirrhosis, a randomized prospective study.
Acute Effects of Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) Nutritional Ketosis on Parkinson's Disease (PD) Symptoms and Biomarkers (MCT-PD)
Background: The ketogenic diet uses fats as a person's major energy source rather than carbohydrates. There is increasing interest in using this diet to treat neurodegenerative disorders like PD. Researchers want to learn more before recommending this diet in clinical practice. Objective: To study the effects of a ketogenic diet for someone with PD. Eligibility: People over age 50 with mild to moderate PD. Design: Participants will be screened with surveys and a 10-foot walking test. They ...
PET Imaging of Cyclooxygenase in Participants With Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)
Background: Researchers developed [11C]MC1, a radioligand for cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2). COX-2 is an enzyme induced in the brain during inflammation. Researchers want to see if COX-2 is measurable in the brains of people with MDD who are having a major depressive episode (MDE). Objective: To learn if COX-2 is detectable in the brains of people with MDD who are having an MDE. Eligibility: Healthy people ages 18 70 years old with MDD. Design: Participants will be screened under protocol 01-M ...
Send-In Sample Collection for Comprehensive Analyses of Innate and Adaptive Immune Responses During Acute COVID-19 and Convalescence
Background: Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The global outbreak of COVID-19 is a major public health problem. COVID-19 causes a wide range of symptoms. These symptoms range from mild breathing problems to life-threatening problems or death. Some people have no symptoms. This study aims to learn how acute and late immune responses to COVID-19 lead to different outcomes. The immune system is the body s defense against germs, ...
Intraperitoneal Docetaxel in Combination With mFOLFOX6 for Gastric Cancer Patients With Peritoneal Carcinomatosis
This is a single-center, open-label, non-randomized, uncontrolled Phase 1 study of intraperitoneal docetaxel in combination with systemic mFOLFOX6 for patients who have gastric cancer with gross peritoneal carcinomatosis (GC-PC).
Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of CLTX-305 in Participants With Autosomal Dominant Hypocalcemia (ADH) Type 1
A Phase IIb open label, dose finding study to evaluate the Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of CLTX-305 in Autosomal Dominant Hypocalcemia (ADH) Type 1
Fostamatinib for Hospitalized Adults With COVID-19
Background: COVID-19 is a new disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 that was identified in 2019. Some people who get sick with COVID-19 become ill requiring hospitalization. There are some medicines that may help with recovery. Researchers want to see if a drug called fostamatinib may help people who are hospitalized with COVID-19. Objective: To learn if fostamatinib is safe in patients who are hospitalized with COVID-19 and gain earlier insight into whether it improves outcomes. Eligibility: Adults ...
