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.

Protocol for Collecting, Banking and Distributing Human Tissue Samples: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Tissue Resources Core Facility

NCT01354002

The aims of this protocol are: to collect and store diseased and normal tissue and body fluid samples from new and returning patients at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (SJCRH), affiliated sites and collaborating institutions; to collect and store samples from relatives of SJCRH patients; to collect and store retrospective and prospective pertinent corresponding clinical and laboratory data on disease characterization, treatment, and outcome; and to serve as a source of human biological sa ...

Antiangiogenic Therapy for Children With Recurrent Medulloblastoma, Ependymoma and ATRT

NCT01356290

Patients with relapsed medulloblastoma, ependymoma and ATRT have a very poor prognosis whether treated with conventional chemotherapy, high-dose chemotherapy with stem cell rescue, irradiation or combinations of these modalities. Antiangiogenetic therapy has emerged as new treatment option in solid malignancies. The frequent, metronomic schedule targets both proliferating tumor cells and endothelial cells, and minimizes toxicity. In this study the investigators will evaluate the use of biweekly ...

Conditions: Medulloblastoma Recurrent, Ependymoma Recurrent, ATRT Recurrent

Specimen Collection From Pregnant Women at Increased Risk for Fetal Aneuploidy

NCT01429389

The specimen collection is designed for the purpose of the development of a noninvasive prenatal test for T21.

Conditions: Down Syndrome, Fetal Aneuploidy

HCV-TARGET- Hepatitis C Therapeutic Registry and Research Network

NCT01474811

The primary purpose of the HCV-TARGET study is to establish a nationwide registry of patients undergoing treatment with antiviral therapies for chronic hepatitis C (HCV) at both academic and community practices.

Conditions: Hepatitis C

HKI-272 for HER2-Positive Breast Cancer and Brain Metastases

NCT01494662

The purpose of this research study is to determine how well neratinib works in treating breast cancer that has spread to the brain. Neratinib is a recently discovered oral drug that may stop breast cancer cells from growing abnormally by inhibiting (or blocking) members of a family of proteins that include Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 (HER2). In this research study, the investigators are looking to see how well neratinib works to decrease the size of or stabilize breast cancer that ...

Conditions: Breast Cancer

Computer Training Program for Younger Patients With a Brain Tumor Who Underwent Radiation Therapy

NCT01503086

This randomized clinical trial studies how well an adaptive computerized cognitive training program works compared to a non-adaptive computerized cognitive training program in treating younger patients with brain tumor who underwent radiation therapy. Providing a computer training program may improve the well-being and quality of life of patients with cognitive (physical and mental) function difficulties caused by radiation therapy to the brain.

Conditions: Brain Neoplasm, Recurrent Brain Neoplasm
Phase: Not Applicable

Enroll -HD: A Prospective Registry Study in a Global Huntington's Disease Cohort

NCT01574053

Enroll-HD is a longitudinal, observational, multinational study that integrates two former Huntington's disease (HD) registries-REGISTRY in Europe, and COHORT in North America and Australasia-while also expanding to include sites in Latin America. More than 20,000 participants have now enrolled into the study. With annual assessments and no end date, Enroll-HD has built a large and rich database of longitudinal clinical data and biospecimens that form the basis for studies developing tools and b ...

Conditions: Huntington's Disease

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.
