North Carolina Clinical Trials

A listing of North Carolina Clinical Trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

Charlotte, Raleigh, Asheville, and Wilmington are the key cities of North Carolina, with the Charlotte metro area alone holding about 2.56 million residents and attracting the most tourists each year. The state's diverse economy is driven in part on very high availability of hydroelectric power, and it has 15 metropolitan areas overall. Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains National Park rank as the most visited national park and public land unit, respectively, in the whole United States. The 200-mile Outer Banks make up the most popular beaches. Duke University Hospital, a renowned academic medical center, has nearly 1,000 beds.

Drug-Induced Liver Injury (DILN)Network Retrospective

NCT00360646

The purpose of this study is to establish retrospectively a nationwide registry of patients who have suffered drug-induced liver injury (DILI), and to collect, immortalize and store serum, DNA, and lymphocytes from these patients. ILIAD will serve as a resource for subsequent mechanistic investigations into the basis of severe idiosyncratic DILI. The primary goal of the ILIAD protocol is to create: (a) a clinical database consisting of individuals who have experienced severe DILI caused by four ...

Immune Cell Response to Stimuli

NCT00397280

This study will investigate the response of immune cells (neutrophils, monocytes) to various signals in the test tube to determine how they sense the signals in the body and what substances they produce in response to them. It will determine how the cells may, under certain circumstances, contribute to inflammation, and will measure substances in the blood plasma (the liquid, non-cellular part of the blood) that might stimulate white blood cells, in order to understand how the blood responds to ...

Antiretroviral Pregnancy Registry (APR): Multi-sponsor Registry to Detect Any Major Teratogenic Effect Involving Any of the Registry Drugs When Administered to Pregnant Women.

NCT00404989

The purpose of the Antiretroviral Pregnancy Registry (Registry) is to detect any major teratogenic effect involving any of the Registry drugs when administered to pregnant women. Registration is voluntary and confidential with information obtained from the health care provider. A Registry-assigned identifier allows for follow-up capability. Information on subjects is provided to the Registry prospectively (prior to the outcome of pregnancy being known) through their health care provider, with fo ...

Genetic Risk Factors Associated With Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome

NCT00482794

Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS) is characterized by the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies, which are proteins in the blood that interfere with the body's ability to perform normal blood clotting. Clinical problems associated with antiphospholipid antibodies include an increased risk for the formation of blood clots in the lungs or deep veins of the legs, stroke, heart attack, and recurrent miscarriages. It is possible that some people with APS have a genetic predisposition for dev ...

Psoriasis Longitudinal Assessment and Registry

NCT00508547

The purpose of this study is to further evaluate the safety of infliximab, ustekinumab, and guselkumab in patients with plaque and other forms of psoriasis. The study also includes patients receiving other therapies, such as non-biologic and other biologic agents. The registry also evaluates patient and disease characteristics, including patient-reported assessment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA); and clinical and quality of life outcomes.

Duke Lupus Registry

NCT00512694

Lupus is a systemic autoimmune disease that can present with many varied symptoms, including joint pain, fevers, kidney disease, and rashes. Lupus can affect anyone, but it is most common in younger women. The Duke Lupus Registry will collect information and blood samples from patients with lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus or cutaneous lupus) seen in the Duke Rheumatology clinics. The goal of this Registry is to understand how lupus changes over time so that we can improve the treatment of p ...

A Biospecimen Collection Study of Leukapheresis-Derived Circulating Tumor Cells, Immune Cells, and Progenitor Cells.

NCT00571389

Primary Objective: This is a study to investigate the feasibility of harvesting, expanding, and selecting T lymphocytes from cancer patients and healthy volunteers. The preliminary objective of this study is aimed at selecting PD-1+ and CTLA4+ T cells and other cellular fractions from peripheral blood of cancer patients and healthy volunteers by using specific conjugated antibodies, evaluating their functional ex vivo anti-tumor cytotoxicity against targeted autologous tumor cells.

Conditions: Solid Tumor, Adult, Healthy Donors, COVID-19 Donors

Efficacy of Implantable Defibrillator Therapy After a Myocardial Infarction

NCT00673842

This study will assess whether an implantable defibrillator will increase the likelihood of survival in patients who have had a heart attack in the prior 5 years, have abnormal test results from a 24 hour heart monitor, and who have low normal heart function.

Conditions: Myocardial Infarction, Sudden Death

Genetic and Environmental Risk Factors for Hemorrhagic Stroke

NCT00682695

The purpose of this study is to find risk factors for hemorrhagic stroke.

Conditions: Stroke

Optical Spectroscopy During Breast Cancer Surgery and Core Needle Biopsy

NCT00734838

The objective of the proposed research is to develop new diagnostic modalities based on optical spectroscopy (auto fluorescence, absorption, and scattering) for the diagnosis of breast cancer and test its performance as an adjunct to core needle biopsy. For the surgery part of the study, all patients scheduled to have a mastectomy or lumpectomy for the treatment of breast cancer will be asked if they would be willing to participate in this study. For the core needle biopsy part of the study, pat ...

Long-Term Follow-Up of Patients Who Have Participated in Children's Oncology Group Studies

NCT00736749

This clinical trial keeps track of and collects follow-up information from patients who are currently enrolled on or have participated in a Children's Oncology Group study. Developing a way to keep track of patients who have participated in Children's Oncology Group studies may allow doctors learn more about the long-term effects of cancer treatment and help them reduce problems related to treatment and improve patient quality of life.
