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.
A Clinical Trial to Assess the Safety and the Anti-caries Efficacy of COL 101 (Arginine) Non-fluoride Dentifrices in Comparison With 0.24% Sodium Fluoride (1100 Ppm F) Dentifrice Control in 10 to 14-year-old Children
The objective of this study is to assess the safety and to evaluate the anti-caries efficacy of COL101 (arginine) non-fluoride dentifrices compared to a 0.24% sodium fluoride dentifrice in 10-14 year-old children over a one year period.
First in Human Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of EYP-1901 in Patients With Wet Age Related Macular Degeneration
This is a Phase 1 open-label study to assess the bioactivity, ocular and systemic safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of a single injections of EYP-1901 at three dose levels: 440 µg, 2060 µg and 3090 µg
Tracking Response to Antidepressants in Advance of Investigational Trials
TRAIT is an open-label observational study to evaluate treatment response to selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and selective-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) among individuals meeting criteria for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and seeking enrollment in investigational trials.
Safety and Bioactivity of AXT107 in Subjects With Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration
This is an open-label, dose-escalating, 48-week study assessing the safety, tolerability, bioactivity and duration of action of a single intravitreal injection of 0.1 mg, 0.25 mg, or 0.5 mg AXT107 in approximately 18 subjects (up to 6 subjects per dose) with nAMD.
Assessing Metabolic and Sleep Consequences of Overnight Home Parenteral Nutrition
The purpose of this study is to determine whether advancing the timing of home parenteral nutrition from overnight to daytime regimens leads to improved glucose profiles and sleep quality, and other changes in plasma metabolic signatures.
Multicenter Study Assessing the Efficacy and Safety of DE-126 Ophthalmic Solution 0.002% Compared With Timolol Maleate Ophthalmic Solution 0.5% in Subjects With Primary Open Angle Glaucoma or Ocular Hypertension
Reduction of elevated pressure in the eye (Intraocular pressure, or 'IOP') with eye drop medications has been shown to be effective in delaying or preventing the progression of glaucoma, and it is the only proven method for reducing the risk of glaucomatous visual field loss. This study is being conducted to determine how well DE-126 ophthalmic solution works (efficacy) in safely lowering IOP when dosed as topical eyedrops. This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of DE-126, ophthalmic ...
Taking Care of Us: A Dyadic Intervention for Heart Failure Couples
This research study is evaluating the efficacy and feasibility of a novel, dyadic intervention for heart failure couples versus an educational counseling intervention.
Influence of Body Weight and Composition on Immune Recovery
Immune dysfunction in individuals with obesity, secondary to chronic inflammation, may have an acute impact on War fighter health and readiness, and subsequent lethality. Indeed, ~51% of military personnel ages 17 or older are overweight, and ~15% have obesity (ranging from 6.4% in the Marine Corps to 18.0% in the Army). In conjunction with in vitro functional tests to assess systemic immune function, the suction blister model is a minimally invasive procedure that allows in vivo assessment of i ...
Ketone Supplements and Substrate Oxidation and Physical Performance
The objective of this randomized crossover study is to examine the influence of consuming a ketone ester plus carbohydrate (KE+CHO) supplement on substrate oxidation and physical performance in 15 healthy adults. Following a 48-hr muscle glycogen normalization period, volunteers will consume either an isocaloric KE+CHO (KE: 573 mg KE/kg body mass, CHO: 110 g) or isocaloric CHO drink and complete 90-min of metabolically-matched, load carriage (~30% body mass) steady-state aerobic (~60 ± 5 % of VO ...
Pulmonary Physiologic Assessment of Patients on Veno-arterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (VA ECMO)
There is limited data on the respiratory system mechanics and ideal mode of ventilation for patients on veno-arterial extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) post cardiac arrest. In this observational study, the investigators will review and/or obtain laboratory, hemodynamic, respiratory system mechanical, and clinical data from patients on VA ECMO. The specific aims of this study are as follows: Aim 1: To characterize the lung ventilation strategy employed in patients on VA ECMO and its ...
Personalized Responses to Dietary Composition Trial 3
The PREDICT 3 study will build on previous research in over 2,000 individuals to further refine machine learning models that predict individual responses to foods, with the aim of advancing precision nutrition science and individualized dietary advice. The study incorporates both standardized and controlled dietary intervention, for the purpose of testing postprandial responses to specific mixed meals, in addition to a free-living period with a dietary record for measuring responses to a large v ...
