Massachusetts Clinical Trials
A listing of Massachusetts clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.
Clinical Follow-up of Pregnant Subjects Undergoing NIPT
To obtain pregnancy outcome data from patients screened for fetal genetic status using non-invasive pregnancy testing (NIPT).
Stopping TSC Onset and Progression 2: Epilepsy Prevention in TSC Infants
This trial will use a two stage, phase I/II clinical trial design. The first stage will employ an open-label clinical trial design to verify dosing for TAVT-18 (sirolimus) powder for oral solution in TSC infants (N=5). Results will then be carried forward to inform appropriate initial dosing, dosing frequency, and dosing adjustments for the second stage, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled multi-site study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of early sirolimus to prevent or delay seiz ...
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).
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.
A Prospective Natural History Study in Uveal Melanoma
The overall objective of this proposal is to develop and utilize a multicenter UM registry that will, in a longitudinal fashion, capture prospective data in order to characterize the natural history of UM and provide data that will be used to support the development of novel therapies for this disease. The care of patients with UM requires a multi-disciplinary team of physicians that commonly requires the involvement of both radiation oncology and interventional radiology, and is typically direc ...
A Comparison of the Effect of Suture Material on Blepharoplasty Incision
The objective is to compare the effect of suture material on blepharoplasty incision. Outcomes of blepharoplasty scar and/or cosmesis will be compared between plain gut and polypropylene suture. Additionally, the study will assess whether certain Fitzpatrick skin types are associated with increased rates of poor outcomes after blepharoplasty.
Big Effect Trial (BET-A) for the Treatment of COVID-19
This is a platform trial to conduct a series of randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials using common assessments and endpoints in hospitalized adults diagnosed with COVID-19. BET is a proof-of-concept study with the intent of identifying promising treatments to enter a more definitive study. The study will be conducted in up to 40 sites throughout the US. The study will compare different investigational therapeutic agents to a common control arm and determine which have relatively la ...
Improving Real-time COVID-19 Monitoring Through Smartphone Voice Analysis
This is a confirmatory study that seeks to examine whether respiratory-responsive vocal biomarkers have potential to respond to COVID-19 infection status and respiratory symptom severity. Patients with suspected COVID-19 and healthy controls will submit daily voice samples and symptom inventories on their personal smartphone devices for 14 days.
The Impact of Exercise-Induced Cardiac Remodeling on Myocardial Efficiency
This research study is being conducted to find out how heart function and energy use differ among healthy endurance athletes, individuals who do not exercise regularly, and patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The research study involves taking part in a cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET), two positron emission tomography (PET) scans, an echocardiogram, and blood draws. The study will consist of a total of three visits scheduled over a maximum of two weeks. By determining how heart funct ...
A Study of Cytisinicline for Smoking Cessation in Adult Smokers
This placebo-controlled Phase 3 study is being conducted at sites within the United States to evaluate 3 mg cytisinicline TID for treatment duration of 42 days/6 weeks as well as repeating that duration for a total of 84 days/12 weeks treatment.
Phenotyping Mechanistic Pathways for Adverse Health Outcomes in Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent disorder with adverse neurocognitive and cardio-metabolic outcomes. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the gold standard therapeutic option to treat airway obstructions during sleep and thus, prevent its adverse cardiovascular and neurocognitive outcomes. Previous clinical trials, however, have largely failed to show a consistent impact of CPAP on these health outcomes. One of the main limitations of these trials may be the inadequa ...
Exploratory Study of MYK-491 in Patients With Primary Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) Due to Genetic Variants
The purpose of this Phase 2a study is to establish safety and tolerability of treatment with MYK-491 in patients with primary dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) due to MYH7 or TTN variants .
