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.

Safety and Efficacy Evaluation of Oxybutynin Topical Gel In Children With Neurogenic Bladder

NCT01192568

This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Oxybutynin Chloride 10% Topical Gel in children 3 to less than 17 years old, who have overactive bladder due to a neurogenic condition. Children will be treated with 0.75 g of gel/day for two weeks. Patients will then return to the clinic for a potential dose titration. At this time their dose may be adjusted up to 1g/day, down to 0.5g/day, or remain the same at 0.75g of gel/day depending on the individual response and tolerability. The total t ...

Nephrotic Syndrome Study Network

NCT01209000

Minimal change disease (MCD), focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), and Membranous nephropathy (MN), generate an enormous individual and societal financial burden, accounting for approximately 12% of prevalent end stage renal disease (ESRD) cases (2005) at an annual cost in the US of more than $3 billion. However, the clinical classification of these diseases is widely believed to be inadequate by the scientific community. Given the poor understanding of MCD/FSGS and MN biology, it is not s ...

Environmental Risk Factors for the Anti-synthetase Syndrome

NCT01276470

Background: Like other complex diseases, autoimmune diseases are the result of numerous causes, including genetic and environmental factors. Some researchers believe that people who are susceptible to autoimmune disorders develop them when the body reacts to environmental or other factors by creating white blood cells that attack the body s own tissues, which then progresses to autoimmune diseases. These immune-triggered disorders can overlap with one another to some extent, but most autoimmune ...

Hyperpolarized 129Xe MRI for Imaging Pulmonary Function

NCT01280994

The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate the usefulness of MRI using 129Xe gas for regional assessment of pulmonary function. Specifically, three forms of 129Xe MRI contrast will be the investigators focus - 1) imaging of the 129Xe ventilation distribution, 2) imaging the alveolar microstructure via the 129Xe apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), and 3) imaging 129Xe that dissolves in the pulmonary blood and tissues upon inhalation. Such imaging of 129Xe gas transfer is expected to b ...

Conditions: Interstitial Lung Disease

NCT01349881

The investigators hypothesize that the combination of eflornithine and sulindac will be effective in reducing a three-year event rate of adenomas and second primary colorectal cancers in patients previously treated for Stages 0 through III colon or rectal cancer.

Conditions: Colorectal Neoplasms

Inherited Reproductive Disorders

NCT01500447

Background: - During puberty, children begin to develop into adults. Problems with the hormones released during puberty can affect the reproductive system. Some people have low hormone levels that severely delay or prevent puberty. Others start puberty abnormally early. Other people may have a normal puberty but develop reproductive disorders later in life. Researchers want to study people with reproductive disorders to learn more about how these disorders may be inherited. Objectives: - To l ...
