Michigan Clinical Trials
A listing of Michigan clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.
Making the decision to participate in a clinical trial is a very personal one. Some individuals do it because they have run out of options and want to try a new experimental treatment in the hope it might help their condition, while others do it because they want to do their part helping the clinical community move forward and potentially help cure many people down the line. For individuals looking to participate, there are a wide array of clinical trials in Michigan looking for participants who can commit to seeing the trials through. The biggest city of Michigan is Detroit, "The Motor City" that was central to America's auto industry for decades. Lansing is the capital, while Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids round out the list with some of the most beautiful views of any urban area in America. Michigan boasts the longest freshwater coastline of any U.S. state, adding to its reputation for outdoor recreation. Today's Michigan is increasingly building businesses in professional services, health, and education. Medical care has kept up with the times, with the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers blazing the trail toward world class community health.

An Attention-Restorative Therapy (ART)-Based Virtual Reality Intervention to Address Cancer-Related Cognitive Impairments Among Breast Cancer Survivors
This study is to assess the feasibility of using a Virtual Reality (VR) headset to provide nature-based Attention-Restorative Therapy (ART) as treatment for cognitive impairment in post-treatment cancer survivors. At ART's foundation is the belief that exposure to nature can improve attention by fully engaging a person in a safe and relaxing experience. This intervention uses a VR headset to expose the participant to nature while overcoming some potential barriers of nature-based interventions l ...
Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Immunogenicity, and Safety of RSVpreF in Adults.
This randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled Phase 3 study is designed to assess the safety, immunogenicity, and efficacy of RSVpreF in the prevention of moderate to severe LRTI-RSV in adults.
A Study of AND017 to Treat Anemia in Non-dialysis-Dependent Chronic Kidney Disease (NDD-CKD) Patients
This is a pilot phase II study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of AND017 in NDD-CKD patients
SPIROMICS Study of Early COPD Progression (SOURCE)
This is an observational study of 600 participants to further define the nature of early chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in younger, at-risk individuals. The study has three main goals: To use CT scan imaging to identify which smokers will develop COPD. To identify biomarkers predictive of smokers that will develop COPD. To determine if sputum (phlegm) can be analyzed to predict which smokers will develop COPD. Procedures (methods): All participants will undergo study related que ...
A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Astegolimab in Participants With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of astegolimab in combination with standard of care chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) maintenance therapy in patients with COPD who are former or current smokers and have a history of frequent exacerbations.
Chronic Pain in Rheumatoid Arthritis
The objective is to identify modifiable clinical factors and neurobiological pathways that lead to the development of chronic pain in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis. Participants will undergo quantitative sensory testing, a type of testing that involves assessing response to well-defined, quantifiable painful stimuli, at 0, 3, and 12 months. A subset of participants will also undergo magnetic resonance imaging at 0 and 12 months to assess neuroimaging markers that have previously been ...
Clinical Comparison of 2 Daily Disposable Toric Soft Contact Lenses
The purpose of this study to evaluate the overall performance of PRECISION1™ for Astigmatism contact lenses with MyDay® Toric contact lenses.
A Study to Learn More About How Well Elinzanetant Works and How Safe it is for the Treatment of Vasomotor Symptoms (Hot Flashes) That Are Caused by Hormonal Changes Over 26 Weeks in Women Who Have Been Through the Menopause
Researchers are looking for a better way to treat women who have hot flashes after women have been through the menopause. Hot flashes are caused by the hormonal changes that happen when a woman's body has been through the menopause. Menopause is when women stop having a menstrual cycle, also called a period. During the menopause, the ovaries increasingly produce less sex hormones as a result of the natural ageing process and related hormonal adjustments. The decline in hormone production can lea ...
Effect of Early Administration of TXA in Adult Hip Fractures
This is a prospective clinical study designed to assess blood loss in intracapsular and extracapsular hip fractures undergoing operative fixation at a Level II trauma center. It is well established in the orthopedic literature that tranexamic acid (TXA) decreases blood loss and need for postoperative blood transfusion in hip fracture patients as well as total joint arthroplasty patients. A typical dosing pattern, and the dosing pattern employed at our institution, is 1 gram IV infused prior to i ...
A Post-Exposure Prophylaxis Study of PF-07321332/Ritonavir in Adult Household Contacts of an Individual With Symptomatic COVID-19
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of PF-07321332/ritonavir as postexposure prophylaxis for adult household contacts of a patient with COVID-19
Development and Testing of a Pediatric Cervical Spine Injury Risk Assessment Tool
Cervical spine injuries (CSI) are serious, but rare events in children. Spinal precautions (rigid cervical collar and immobilization on a longboard) in the prehospital setting may be beneficial for children with CSI, but are poorly studied. In contrast, spinal precautions for pediatric trauma patients without CSI are common and may be associated with harm. Spinal precautions result in well-documented adverse physical and physiological sequelae. Of substantial concern is that the mere presence of ...
Clinical trials vary in time; in total a single clinical trial may take up to 15 years to complete, and some longitudinal studies ask the participant to stay in touch for follow up questions for a few years after their participation in the study is finished. Depending on the goal and the design of a clinical trial, volunteers may be asked to stay on site for a set amount of nights; this happens because the researchers might want to monitor the participant's at different hours of the day or night. Some clinical research is also setup to compensate individuals, and paid clinical trials are not uncommon.
In Michigan, the University of Michigan division of research has one of the largest clinical trial and research centers in the state, where interested volunteers can enroll in studies for healthy or non-healthy individuals. The Barbara Ann Karmanos cancer institute in Detroit, Michigan also offers clinical trials for many types of cancers for both healthy and non-healthy individuals.
Volunteers who decide to participate in a clinical trial may be compensated for their time and travel expenses during their participation in the study. The compensation will vary depending on the type of study and level of participation required from the volunteer, but paid clinical trials in Michigan are very common.
Participating in a clinical trial is always completely voluntary. This means that nobody, regardless of their condition can be forced to participate nor can they be forced to continue participating in a trial if they wish to withdraw from the study. Non-healthy individuals who decide to enroll in a clinical trial after a suggestion from their doctor or to try an experimental treatment for their condition will never be denied care if they decide to drop out of the study.
