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.
Investigating the Utility of Demyelination Tracer [18F]3F4AP in Controls and Multiple Sclerosis Subjects
Our overall objective is to obtain an initial assessment of the potential value of using [18F]3F4AP for imaging demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis: Aim 1) Assess the safety of [18F]3F4AP in healthy volunteers and subjects with multiple sclerosis (MS). Hypothesis 1: Administration of [18F]3F4AP will result in no changes in vitals or other adverse events. Aim 2) Assess the pharmacokinetics of a bolus infusion of [18F]3F4AP in humans including healthy volunteers and MS patients. Hyp ...
The Up-LIFT Study of Non-Invasive ARC Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury
The Up-LIFT Study is a prospective, single-arm study designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of non-invasive electrical spinal cord stimulation (ARC Therapy) administered by the LIFT System to treat upper extremity functional deficits in people with chronic tetraplegia.
Predicting Pediatric Pulmonary Vein Stenosis Outcomes Using Data Acquired During a Cardiac Catheterization
This is a prospective, single center study which applies a standardized, comprehensive catheterization assessment to patients with a known or suspected diagnosis of pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) who are undergoing a cardiac catheterization at Boston Children's Hospital. As part of the assessment, each pulmonary vein will undergo angiography (pictures using moving x-rays and contrast dye), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS; pictures of the vein wall using a catheter inside the vein), pressure assess ...
Safety and Bioactivity of AXT107 in Subjects With Diabetic Macular Edema
This study 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 Diabetic Macular Edema (DME).
Post-Approval Study of the TREO Abdominal Stent-Graft System
The purpose of this study is to determine the long-term performance of the TREO Abdominal Stent-Graft as a treatment for patients with Infrarenal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms or Aorto-iliac Aneurysms.
Regorafenib Plus Pembrolizumab in Patients With Advanced or Spreading Liver Cancer Who Have Been Previously Treated With PD-1/PD-L1 Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors
Researchers are looking for a better way to treat people suffering from liver cancer which may have spread to nearby tissue and is unlikely to be cured or controlled with treatment (advanced metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma, HCC). Before a treatment can be approved for people to take, researchers do clinical trials to better understand its safety and how it works. In this trial, the researchers will learn more about the trial treatment, regorafenib, in a small number of participants. They wi ...
Relationship Between Strain and Stroke Volume in Cardiac Surgery
Patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting up tp 30% will develop postoperative right ventricle dysfunction. Its imperative for the physician to fully understand the severity of this complication in order to perform an early diagnosis and carry out the appropriate treatment. Aim: Investigate the correlation between echocardiographic measurements and hemodynamic changes at different time points in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery Hypothesis: Weak correlation b ...
Efficacy and Safety Study of Adjunctive Troriluzule in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
The study's purpose its to evaluate the efficacy and safety of troriluzole as adjunctive therapy compared to placebo in subjects with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Minority Barriers in Anesthesia
We aim to survey members of the ASA (medical students, residents, and attendings) who self-identify as minorities to assess if there are systemic barriers to minorities pursuing leadership positions. We hypothesize that structural issues such as a lack of formalized mentoring programs play a role in reduced minority professional advancement.
Safety, Tolerability and Acceptability of Long-Acting Cabotegravir (CAB LA) for the Prevention of HIV Among Adolescent Males - A Sub-study of HPTN 083
This study will establish the minimum safety, tolerability and acceptability data needed to support the use of cabotegravir long-acting injection (CAB LA) in an adolescent population, potentially transforming the field of HIV prevention for young people.
Hospital at Home at EOL in Heme Malignancies
This study is evaluating an intervention, which the investigators call "Optimize End of Life (EOL) Care at Home," that entails remote patient monitoring and home-based supportive care for patients with advanced hematologic malignancies.
BP Management System User Acceptance Testing
This is a feasibility study for an investigational clinical decision support system ("the System") intended to optimize the management of blood pressure (BP) for patients during vasopressor infusion. The investigational outcomes are the perceptions of the nurse-subjects who are managing the BP of the patient-subjects; the operational performance of the System; and any technical failures of the software during real-time operation.
