Massachusetts Clinical Trials

A listing of Massachusetts clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

Well known as the home of Harvard University, Massachusetts' capital of Boston was one of the most consequential cities in the American Revolution. Everywhere you go, you'll find preserved structures, monuments, and museums – whether in Salem, Plymouth, or Cambridge. Massachusetts was among the first states to require its residents to hold health insurance, an initiative by Republican Gov. Mitt Romney which eventually informed the Affordable Care Act. Since that time, Massachusetts has continued to stand out as a healthcare leader. With more than 1,000 beds and over 12,500 full-time employees, Massachusetts General Hospital is its top provider, located in Boston.

International Registry for Severe Chronic Neutropenia

NCT00004342

OBJECTIVES: I. Document the clinical course of severe chronic neutropenia (SCN). II. Monitor and assess long term safety of primary treatment in SCN patients in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. III. Study the incidence and outcome of adverse events such as osteoporosis, splenomegaly, cytogenetic abnormalities, myelodysplastic syndrome, and leukemia. IV. Evaluate growth and development and hematologic parameters. V. Monitor for clinically significant changes in primary treatme ...

Follow-up Visit of High Risk Infants

NCT00009633

The NICHD Neonatal Research Network's Follow-Up study is a multi-center cohort in which surviving extremely low birth-weight infants born in participating network centers receive neurodevelopmental, neurosensory and functional assessments at 22-26 months corrected age (Infants born prior to July 1, 2012 were seen at 18-22 months corrected age). Data regarding pregnancy and neonatal outcome are collected prospectively. The goal is to identify potential maternal and neonatal risk factors that may ...

Human Epilepsy Genetics--Neuronal Migration Disorders Study

NCT00041600

The purpose of this study is to identify genes responsible for epilepsy and disorders of human cognition.

Conditions: Epilepsy, Seizures, Cognition Disorders, Neuronal Migration Disorders

Generic Database of Very Low Birth Weight Infants

NCT00063063

The Generic Database (GDB) is a registry of very low birth weight infants born alive in NICHD Neonatal Research Network (NRN) centers. The GDB collects observational baseline data on both mothers and infants, and the therapies used and outcomes of the infants. The information collected is not specific to a disease or treatment (i.e., it is "generic"). Data are analyzed to find associations and trends between baseline information, treatments, and infant outcome, and to develop future NRN trials.

Genetic Analysis in Identifying Late-Occurring Complications in Childhood Cancer Survivors

NCT00082745

This clinical trial studies cancer survivors to identify those who are at increased risk of developing late-occurring complications after undergoing treatment for childhood cancer. A patient's genes may affect the risk of developing complications, such as congestive heart failure, avascular necrosis, stroke, and second cancer, years after undergoing cancer treatment. Genetic studies may help doctors identify survivors of childhood cancer who are more likely to develop late complications.

Conditions: Childhood Malignant Neoplasm

Establishing a Tumor Bank in Families With Multiple Lymphoproliferative Malignancies

NCT00131014

The purpose of this study is to investigate possible genetic factors that contribute to the development of lymphomas. The databank will be used to determine whether familial lymphomas have unique genetic characteristics different from sporadic lymphomas and to attempt to identify a gene that confers an increased risk of lymphoma.

Conditions: Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Hodgkin's Disease, Leukemia, Lymphocytic, Chronic, Lymphoproliferative Disorders

Mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I) Registry

NCT00144794

The Mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I) Registry is an ongoing, observational database that tracks the outcomes of patients with MPS I. The data collected by the MPS I Registry will provide information to better characterize the natural history and progression of MPS I as well as the clinical responses of patients receiving enzyme replacement therapy, such as Aldurazyme (Recombinant Human Alpha-L-Iduronidase), or other treatment modalities. The objectives of the Registry are: To evaluate the long- ...

Conditions: Mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I)

Fabry Disease Registry & Pregnancy Sub-registry

NCT00196742

The Fabry Registry is an ongoing, international multi-center, strictly observational program that tracks the routine clinical outcomes for patients with Fabry disease, irrespective of treatment status. No experimental intervention is involved; patients in the Registry undergo clinical assessments and receive care as determined by the patient's treating physician. The primary objectives of the Registry are: To enhance the understanding of the variability, progression, and natural history of Fab ...

Conditions: Fabry Disease

Mapping Auricular Vagus Nerve Circuitry

NCT00200889

This study will determine how vagus nerve stimulation affects human brain, stomach, and autonomic activity.

Conditions: Healthy

Pompe Disease Registry Protocol

NCT00231400

The Pompe Registry is a global, multicenter, international, longitudinal, observational, and voluntary program for patients with Pompe disease, designed to track the disease's natural history and outcomes in patients, both treated and not. Data from the Registry are also used to fulfill various global regulatory commitments, to support product development/reimbursement, and for other research and non-research related purposes. The objectives of the Registry are: To enhance understanding of the ...

Longitudinal Study of Urea Cycle Disorders

NCT00237315

Urea cycle disorders (UCD) are a group of rare inherited metabolism disorders. Infants and children with UCD commonly experience episodes of vomiting, lethargy, and coma. The purpose of this study is to perform a long-term analysis of a large group of individuals with various UCDs. The study will focus on the natural history, disease progression, treatment, and outcome of individuals with UCD.
