Pennsylvania Clinical Trials
A listing of Pennsylvania clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.
Now enjoying a moment in the sun thanks to the breakout popularity of Flyers mascot Gritty, Pennsylvania's capital Philadelphia has long been known as "The City of Brotherly Love" and home of the first public library in the United States. Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, a prolific inventor and author, spent much of his life in Philadelphia and left an indelible mark there. The U.S. Declaration of Independence, U.S Constitution, and Gettysburg Address were all written in Pennsylvania. The University of Pennsylvania is one of America's leading colleges, and UPMC Presbyterian, associated with the University of Pittsburgh, is the largest hospital.
A Study to Assess Choroideremia (CHM) Health Outcomes
The primary objectives of this study are to describe disease progression and severity by age in participants with CHM, to assess health-related quality-of-life, resource utilization and work productivity, and to assess quality-of-life, work productivity, and impact on daily activities in caregivers of participants with CHM at different stages of disease progression.
A Clinical Trial to Assess the Safety and the Anti-caries Efficacy of COL 101 (Arginine) Non-fluoride Dentifrices in Comparison With 0.24% Sodium Fluoride (1100 Ppm F) Dentifrice Control in 10 to 14-year-old Children
The objective of this study is to assess the safety and to evaluate the anti-caries efficacy of COL101 (arginine) non-fluoride dentifrices compared to a 0.24% sodium fluoride dentifrice in 10-14 year-old children over a one year period.
The Pregnancy 24/7 Cohort Study
Moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity is known to reduce the risk of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and other adverse pregnancy outcomes that increase future maternal cardiovascular disease risk (2018 Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee, 2018; Davenport et al., 2018), yet less than 25% of pregnant women meet public health physical activity guidelines (Hesketh & Evenson, 2016). More than 95% of the 24-hour day is spent in sedentary behavior, sleep, or light-intensity a ...
Assessing Gastric Motility and Distention in Postoperative Gastrointestinal Surgery Using Bedside Gastric Ultrasound: Predicting Risk of Aspiration Pneumonia, Ileus, Return of Bowel Function
Point-of-care gastric ultrasound will be used to measure stomach contents postoperative in patients who underwent colorectal surgery. Stomach volume and status (empty or full) will be compared retrospectively to the standard clinical criteria for diet advancement to determine if stomach volume via ultrasound is associated with successful diet advancement, nausea/vomiting, nasogastric tube replacement, length of stay, and other clinical outcomes. Clinicians performing clinical care will be blinde ...
A Case-CrossovEr Study deSign to Inform Tailored Interventions to Prevent Disease Progression in Acute Pancreatitis
The Purpose of this study is to investigate changes in alcohol consumption in the period leading up to the onset of pancreatitis and compare that to levels of drinking during asymptomatic periods.
Multicenter Study Assessing the Efficacy and Safety of DE-126 Ophthalmic Solution 0.002% Compared With Timolol Maleate Ophthalmic Solution 0.5% in Subjects With Primary Open Angle Glaucoma or Ocular Hypertension
Reduction of elevated pressure in the eye (Intraocular pressure, or 'IOP') with eye drop medications has been shown to be effective in delaying or preventing the progression of glaucoma, and it is the only proven method for reducing the risk of glaucomatous visual field loss. This study is being conducted to determine how well DE-126 ophthalmic solution works (efficacy) in safely lowering IOP when dosed as topical eyedrops. This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of DE-126, ophthalmic ...
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Muscle Phenotyping in Mitochondrial Disease
The purpose of this study is to perform a "muscle phenotyping" magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) assessment in patients receiving clinical care at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for mitochondrial disease that is either suspected (based on clinical presentation) or has a definite genetic diagnosis. The MRI assessment quantifies skeletal muscle oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) capacity. Investigators hope that this study will contribute to our current knowledge of mitochondrial d ...
CPI-006 Plus Standard of Care Versus Placebo Plus Standard of Care in Mild to Moderately Symptomatic Hospitalized Covid-19 Patients
This is a phase 3, randomized, placebo controlled, double-blind, multicenter, stratified study of CPI-006 plus standard of care (SOC) versus placebo plus SOC in mild to moderately symptomatic hospitalized Covid-19 patients with the primary objective to compare the proportion of participants alive and respiratory failure free between CPI-006 plus SOC versus placebo plus SOC.
A Research Study To See How Well an Eye Drop, SURF-100 (A Mycophenolic Acid/Betamethasone Sodium Phosphate Combination), Works and What Side Effects There Are in Subjects With Dry Eye Disease
SURF-100 is being studied for the treatment of dry eye disease. SURF-100 is an investigational drug (which means the study drug is currently being tested) in the form of a sterile eye drop. The purpose of this research study is to see how well SURF-100 works to treat dry eye and what potential side effects there are, and to compare it with Vehicle (placebo), 0.1% mycophenolic acid (MPA) in Vehicle, 0.3% MPA in Vehicle, 0.01% betamethasone phosphate (BSP) in Vehicle, Restasis and Xiidra. This st ...
Improving COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake in Nursing Homes
SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, now being administered to skilled nursing facility (SNF) residents and staff, has highly variable acceptance between facilities. The investigators need to develop and disseminate effective strategies to increase vaccination immediately. For SNF residents and staff, the investigators will develop and implement a scalable multi-pronged intervention that educates, builds trust and supports the informed consent process aimed to increase SARS-CoV-2 vaccination. The investigators ...
A Trial of Project ImPACT in Early Intervention
Our pilot study will address a number of pressing questions, including: Can community clinicians successfully coach parents of children with ASD in evidence-based practice to achieve positive outcomes for their children and themselves? What dose is necessary to achieve change? And what is the cost effectiveness of implementing evidence-based interventions at different doses?
Sensory Responses to Dorsal Root Stimulation
The goal of this project is to characterize the types of sensations that can be evoked via electrical stimulation of the spinal cord and spinal nerves. Patients will be recruited from a local pain clinic, each with a spinal cord stimulation device implanted, to participate in experiments to explore the ability to modulate and control the modality, intensity, focality, and location of the sensations evoked by stimulation through the spinal cord stimulator leads. Investigators will connect spinal ...
