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 Study to Investigate the Safety and Efficacy of TEG002 in Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma Patients
This is a single arm, open-label, multicenter phase I study to assess the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of autologous T cells transduced with a specific γδTCR, i.e. TEG002, in a dose escalation and expansion study in relapsed/refractory Multiple Myeloma patients. The study will comprise of a Dose Escalation Segment and an Expansion Segment. The study consists of a screening period, leukapheresis of mononuclear cells, and conditioning chemotherapy, followed by TEG002. All subject ...
Sonograms Enable Looking Forward - Home Examinations Led by Providers Validation Study
To demonstrate that clear, interpretable quality images of the ovaries and uterus can be generated using a portable transvaginal ultrasound scanner in the home environment, and that those images are interpretable by physicians with sufficient clarity to estimate approximate antral follicle count (i.e., appropriate for age) and to observe submucosal fibroids. Study aims to prove that images taken when ultrasound is performed by a woman herself (with HCP supervision via telemedicine) and images ta ...
A Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of REL-1017 as Adjunctive Treatment for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)
This is an outpatient, 2-arm, Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to assess the efficacy and safety of REL-1017 once daily (QD) as an adjunctive treatment of Major Depressive Disorder. Study participants will continue to take their current antidepressant therapy in addition to the study drug or placebo for the duration of the treatment period.
Mindful Meditation for Epidural Catheter Placement
Given the high prevalence of neuraxial analgesia use during labor and the anxiety associated with these procedures, a method to decrease this anxiety could benefit millions of laboring women each year. Mindfulness practice has been used by many groups to decrease anxiety during pregnancy with optimistic results. However, there has been no major study evaluating the role of mindfulness interventions on anxiety associated with neuraxial placement. The purpose of our study is to address this gap in ...
CHoice of OptImal transCatheter trEatment for Mitral Insufficiency Registry
This multinational, investigator-initiated, retrospective study aims to investigate outcomes of patients, who underwent transcatheter mitral valve implantation (TMVI), in comparison to those screened for TMVI but deemed ineligible, who subsequently underwent interventional mitral valve edge-to-edge repair, mitral valve surgery or medical/conservative therapy.
A Long-Term Safety and Tolerability Extension Study Evaluating Atogepant for the Prevention of Chronic or Episodic Migraine
This study will evaluate the Long-Term Safety and Tolerability of Atogepant 60 mg daily for the Prevention of Migraine in Participants with Chronic or Episodic Migraine
Behavioral and Neural Phenotypes of Primary Dysmenorrhea in Adolescents
The study will use primary dysmenorrhea (PD; menstrual pain without an identified organic cause) as a model to examine biomarkers associated with menstrual and non-menstrual bodily pain in adolescent girls, ages 14-18. Participants will undergo extensive phenotyping including pain inhibition testing and multimodal neuroimaging to obtain indices brain structure and function at baseline and 12 months later. Menstrual pain severity and non-menstrual bodily pain will be assessed monthly for 24 month ...
The Sonic Incytes Liver Incytes System, Evaluation of Liver Fibrosis and Steatosis Versus MRE and MRI PDFF
The main purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of various non-invasive elastography techniques at determining liver stiffness measures in human subjects. Specifically, the investigators are comparing MRE and FibroScan to Vibroelastography (VE, Liver Incytes System). These techniques are used to measure stiffness in the liver.
Cardiogenic Shock Working Group Registry
The Cardiogenic Shock Working Group is a multicenter registry where we collect de-identified clinical variables from the medical records and follow-up phone calls of shock patients from multiple institutions and centralize this data to a single registry for analysis of clinical outcomes.
IS-free Treg HaploHCT
This research study is evaluating the safety and efficacy of the IS-free Treg-cell graft-engineered haplo transplant method in people with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and/or myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) receiving a haploidentical donor allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). The names of the study interventions involved in this study are: Radiation-Total Myeloid and Lymphoid Irradiation (TMLI Chemotherapy (Fludarabine, Thiotepa, Cyclophosphamide plus Mesna ...
Mind-body Therapy (Remotely Delivered) for Knee Osteoarthritis
This proposal aims to provide crucial knowledge about the neurobiological mechanisms underlying Tai Chi mind-body therapy for knee osteoarthritis (OA). The central mechanism of knee OA pain will be investigated using brain imaging technology to evaluate how brain function and structure change in response to mind-body exercise over time. Sixty eligible individuals who meet the American College of Rheumatology criteria for knee OA will be randomized into Tai Chi or wellness education intervention ...
A Pilot Study Examining Diet in Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis
This research study is exploring the effects of dietary intervention in PSC. Study participants will be randomly assigned to either the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) or a vegan/low-sulfur diet for 8 weeks; the entire study will last approximately 14 weeks. Participants will work with BWH Registered Dieticians and receive dietary educational materials, recipes, and a food procurement stipend to support the new diet. Subjects will attend 7 video visits and have regular lab tests performed, requ ...
