Tennessee Clinical Trials
A listing of Tennessee clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.
Tennessee is a lively and lovely state known as the birthplace of bluegrass and the site of Graceland and Dollywood. It's also the place to go to see one of America's most iconic national parks, The Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Nashville is where you can immerse yourself in the history of the music business, while Memphis, Knoxville, and Gatlinburg each offer their own perks and sights. In any of these cities and beyond, sound healthcare is easy to find. Vanderbilt University Medical Center has been ranked #1 in the state, with more than 1,000 acute care beds in service.

Study of Kidney Tumors in Younger Patients
This research trial studies kidney tumors in younger patients. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, blood, and urine from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and identify biomarkers related to cancer.
Tissue Sample Collection From Patients With Head and Neck Cancer and From Healthy Participants
RATIONALE: Collecting and storing samples of tissue, saliva, and blood from patients with cancer and from healthy participants to study in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future. PURPOSE: This research study is collecting and storing tissue samples from patients with head and neck cancer and from healthy participants.
Collecting and Storing Tissue From Young Patients With Cancer
This laboratory study is collecting and storing tissue, blood, and bone marrow samples from young patients with cancer. Collecting and storing samples of tissue, blood, and bone marrow from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that may occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.
Collecting and Storing Tissue Samples From Women With or Without Breast Cancer
RATIONALE: Collecting and storing samples of tissue, blood, and urine from patients with or without breast cancer to study in the laboratory may help the study of cancer. PURPOSE: This research study is collecting and storing tissue samples from women with or without breast cancer.
Gastrointestinal Biomarkers in Tissue and Biological Fluid Samples From Patients and Healthy Participants
RATIONALE: Studying samples of tissue, blood, urine, stool, and other biological fluids from patients with cancer and from healthy participants may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer. PURPOSE: This research study is looking at gastrointestinal biomarkers in tissue and biological fluid samples from patients and healthy participants undergoing colonoscopy, endoscopy, or surgery.
Biomarkers in Tumor Tissue Samples From Patients With Newly Diagnosed Neuroblastoma or Ganglioneuroblastoma
This research trial studies biomarkers in tumor tissue samples from patients with newly diagnosed neuroblastoma or ganglioneuroblastoma. Studying samples of tumor tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer.
Diaphragmatic Hernia Research & Exploration, Advancing Molecular Science
The goal of this study is to identify genes that convey susceptibility to congenital diaphragmatic hernia in humans. The identification of such genes, and examination of their structure and function, will enable a delineation of molecular pathogenesis and, ultimately, prevention or treatment of congenital diaphragmatic hernia. There are many different possible modes of inheritance for congenital anomalies, including autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, and multifactorial. Multi-factorial inh ...
Chemotherapy and Pelvic Radiation Therapy With or Without Additional Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With High-Risk Early-Stage Cervical Cancer After Radical Hysterectomy
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, paclitaxel, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether chemotherapy and radiation therapy are more effective when given with or without additional chemotherapy in treating cervical cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying chemotherapy ...
A Study to Assess PV-10 Chemoablation of Cancer of the Liver
This open-label study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and effect on tumor growth following a single intralesional injection of PV-10 in subjects with either (a) hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) that is not amenable to resection, transplant or other potentially curative therapy or (b) cancer metastatic to the liver.
Cardiac Sympathetic Denervation for Prevention of Ventricular Tachyarrhythmias
The purpose of this research study is to examine the effect of cardiac sympathetic denervation (CSD) surgery on life threatening abnormal heart rhythms called ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation that can lead to sudden cardiac death. Subjects will be asked to participate in this research study if they have recurrent ventricular tachycardia (at least one ICD shock for ventricular tachycardia) and have undergone at least one catheter ablation procedure or have ventricular tachycard ...
I-SPY TRIAL: Neoadjuvant and Personalized Adaptive Novel Agents to Treat Breast Cancer
The purpose of this study is to further advance the ability to practice personalized medicine by learning which new drug agents are most effective with which types of breast cancer tumors and by learning more about which early indicators of response (tumor analysis prior to surgery via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images along with tissue and blood samples) are predictors of treatment success.
Mature B-Cell Lymphoma And Leukemia Study III
This is a phase III clinical trial using risk-adapted therapy. Treatment outcomes for children with B-cell NHL are excellent. Further improvements in outcome will likely be achieved through more focused study of the biology of the tumors and prospective studies of the late effects of treatment. Toward this end, this study features a spectrum of prospective biologic and late effect studies performed in patients treated with a modified regimen derived from the very successful LMB-96 regimen.
