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.

Patient and Healthcare Professional Views on Genetic/Genomic Information and Testing


Technologic advances (i.e. next generation sequencing technologies and novel bioinformatics approaches) have been drivers of scientific discovery and have deepened our understanding of the genetics and genomics of health and disease. In parallel, the falling cost of sequencing has led to screening moving from specialty clinics into the primary care setting. However, our ability to help patients and families understand these technologies and related genetic health literacy issues lag behind. Thes ...

A Nurse-led, Advance Care Planning Intervention in the Emergency Department


ED GOAL is a 6-minute, motivational interviewing, advance care planning intervention. In this study, the investigators will pilot test (Part I) ED GOAL by training research nurses to demonstrate its intervention fidelity and acceptability on older adults with serious illness in the emergency department (ED). Upon demonstrating the intervention fidelity of this intervention in Part I, the investigators will collect patient-centered outcomes (Part II) of 100 older adults with serious illness afte ...

VIR-1111: A Prototype Human CMV-based Vaccine for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in Healthy Volunteers


This is a Phase 1a, first in human study in which healthy adult participants who are considered to be at low-risk for HIV infection and are seropositive for cytomegalovirus (CMV) will receive two doses of VIR-1111 or placebo. These participants will be assessed for safety, reactogenicity, tolerability and immunogenicity. There is an optional long-term follow-up study that would lengthen study participation for up to 3 years post-first dose.

Conditions: HIV I Infection

Translational Research Center for TBI and Stress Disorders: Virtual Assessment of Deployment Trauma and Rehabilitation


For this clinical demonstration study, Veterans will be assessed with a battery of questionnaires/surveys and a 1:1 clinical interview with a V-TRACTS psychologist to target domains of head injury, psychological trauma, depression, suicidality, anxiety, chronic pain and sleep, substance use and activity level. V-TRACTS will convene a weekly consensus meeting to evaluate all the data, and develop a recommendation plan. After the consensus meeting, a V-TRACTS psychologist will provide comprehensiv ...
