Pennsylvania Clinical Trials
A listing of Pennsylvania clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.
A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Durability, and Safety of KSI-301 Compared to Aflibercept in Patients With Macular Edema Due to Retinal Vein Occlusion (RVO)
This Phase 3 study will evaluate the efficacy, durability, and safety of KSI-301 compared to aflibercept, in participants with macular edema due to treatment-naïve branch (BRVO) or central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).
A Study to Evaluate the Pharmacodynamic (PD) Effects of Once Weekly Administration of Gantenerumab in Participants With Early Alzheimer's Disease (AD)
This is a Phase II, multicenter, open-label, single arm, PD study in participants with early (prodromal to mild) AD to evaluate the effect of a once weekly (Q1W) dosing regimen of gantenerumab on deposited amyloid as measured by change from baseline to Week 104 in brain amyloid positron emission tomography (PET). The administration of gantenerumab as a single injection of Q1W will be investigated in this study, to simplify the dosing regimen for participants.
Buccal Film Versus IV Injection Palonosetron for Moderately Emetogenic Chemotherapy Induced Nausea and Vomiting
Phase 2 study to compare efficacy, safety and PK of palonosetron, a long acting 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, by buccal film delivery compared to iv injection for chemotherapy induced nausea or vomiting (CINV). Subjects receive a single dose of palonosetron prior to moderately emetogenic chemotherapy.
Assessment of Efficacy and Safety of Monalizumab Plus Cetuximab Compared to Placebo Plus Cetuximab in Recurrent or Metastatic Head and Neck Cancer
This is a randomized, double-blind, multicenter, global Phase 3 study to assess the efficacy and safety of monalizumab and cetuximab, compared to placebo and cetuximab, in patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer.
Mindfulness to Mitigate Psychological Threat and Improve Engagement and Learning in Introductory Physics Courses
This project involves testing a brief mindfulness training program to reduce students' psychological threat and support motivation, engagement, and learning in introductory undergraduate physics courses. The investigators predict that, compared to a control condition, mindfulness training will reduce psychological threat and increase motivation, engagement, and learning in physics.
A Prospective Natural History Study in Uveal Melanoma
The overall objective of this proposal is to develop and utilize a multicenter UM registry that will, in a longitudinal fashion, capture prospective data in order to characterize the natural history of UM and provide data that will be used to support the development of novel therapies for this disease. The care of patients with UM requires a multi-disciplinary team of physicians that commonly requires the involvement of both radiation oncology and interventional radiology, and is typically direc ...
A Comparison Between Cardiovascular Exercise Modes Following Sport Related Concussion
Primary Aim: Compare physiological (e.g., heart rate) and clinical responses (e.g., symptom provocation) of adolescent and adult athletes (14-35 years of age) completing either a structured treadmill running or a dynamic aerobic exertion protocol during the subacute phase of sport-related concussion recovery (3-30 days after injury). Secondary Aim: Examine potential effects of clinically-relevant factors that influence symptom responses to controlled aerobic exertion, such as age, physical acti ...
A Study of the Safety, Efficacy, and Pharmacokinetics of Tiragolumab in Combination With Atezolizumab and Chemotherapy in Participants With Triple-Negative Breast Cancer
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics of tiragolumab in combination with atezolizumab and chemotherapy in participants with metastatic and early triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).
Intravitreal Aflibercept for the Prevention of Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy Following Retinal Detachment Repair
The primary objective of the study is to determine if serial intravitreal aflibercept injections (IAI) improve the single surgery anatomic success rate following surgical repair of primary, macula involving rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) deemed at high risk for proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). Preclinical work has revealed that competitive inhibition of platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) by vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) potentiates a pathologic, sustained activation ...
Using Digital Data to Predict CHD
This project seeks to identify and characterize features derived from digital data (e.g. social media, online search, mobile media) which are associated with coronary heart disease (CHD) and related risk factors, and develop models that use digital data and conventional predictive models to predict CHD risk and health care utilization.
Metabolomics of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
This is an R01 funded project that focuses on the utility of metabolomics as a biomarker for OSA. Aims 1 and 3 leverages banked samples previously collected from subjects with and without OSA at the University of Pennsylvania and University of Iceland. Aim 2 is a prospective study that will collect serum samples from OSA subjects at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Iceland.
