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.

Brain Stimulation and Cognitive Training - Efficacy


People with serious mental illness often experience difficulties with thinking skills like memory. These difficulties can make it harder to perform day-to-day activities. The purpose of this study is to test whether combining a type of non-invasive brain stimulation with computerized cognitive exercises is helpful in improving a specific type of memory skill in people who have mental health conditions. The study is a randomized clinical trial, meaning that participants will be randomly assigned ...

Improving the Part C Early Intervention Service Delivery System for Children With ASD


Despite strong consensus that early, specialized intervention for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can have a dramatic impact on outcomes, the public health system's capacity to provide such services is severely challenged by the rapid rise in ASD prevalence. The goal of this research project is to increase timely and equitable access to ASD-specialized early intervention during the critical first three years of life by capitalizing on the existing infrastructure of the Part C Early ...

Pediatric Powered Wheelchair Standing Devices: An Exploratory Study


For children who use a power wheelchair, a powered wheelchair standing device (PWSD) may be considered for daily use. A PWSD allows a child to electronically move between sitting and standing and can be driven in either position. Existing published PWSD research in pediatrics is limited to boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).(1, 2) While these studies provide some insights into PWSD use in boys with DMD, they do not reflect PWSD use in children with other conditions. The purpose of this ...

Longitudinal Oral Microbiome Sampling for BE


This is a longitudinal cohort study to assess the impact of repeated sampling of an oral microbiome signature for Barrett's esophagus (BE). Potential participants will be identified through chart review of patients who have had an endoscopy in the past three years.

Conditions: Barrett Esophagus

Laser Treatment of Basal Cell Carcinoma Under Imaging Guidance


This pilot study will examine the treatment of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) with laser technology under the guidance of imaging modalities to assist with surgical excision, including optical coherence tomography imaging (OCT) and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM). The laser modality that we plan to use is the long-pulse Nd:YAG 1064nm laser, which is a nonablative laser already shown to effectively treat BCC. The addition of OCT and RCM has the opportunity to enhance outcomes by better targetin ...

Long Term Extension Study of Tapinarof Cream, 1% for Subjects With Atopic Dermatitis


This is an open-label, long-term multicenter, study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of topical tapinarof cream, 1% in subjects with atopic dermatitis. Subjects in this study have completed treatment in one of two Phase 3 pivotal studies (DMVT-505-3101 or DMVT-505-3102) or completed treatment in the DMVT-505-2104 study, or directly enrolled into this study. This study will consist of up to 48 weeks of treatment and a 1 week safety follow-up period.

Conditions: Atopic Dermatitis

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.
