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

NCT00898365

This research trial studies kidney tumors in younger patients.

PURPOSE: This research study is collecting and storing tissue samples from patients with head and neck cancer and from healthy participants.

Conditions: Head and Neck Cancer

Collecting and Storing Tissue From Young Patients With Cancer

NCT00898755

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.

Conditions: Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Rhabdomyosarcoma, Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Central Nervous System Neoplasm, Ewing Sarcoma, Germ Cell Tumor, Leukemia, Lymphoma, Malignant Neoplasm, Neuroblastoma, Osteosarcoma, Retinoblastoma, Rhabdoid Tumor, Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Collecting and Storing Tissue Samples From Women With or Without Breast Cancer

NCT00899301

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.

Conditions: Breast Cancer

Gastrointestinal Biomarkers in Tissue and Biological Fluid Samples From Patients and Healthy Participants

NCT00899626

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.

Conditions: Colorectal Cancer, Esophageal Cancer, Gastric Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Precancerous Condition

Biomarkers in Tumor Tissue Samples From Patients With Newly Diagnosed Neuroblastoma or Ganglioneuroblastoma

NCT00904241

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.

Conditions: Ganglioneuroblastoma, Localized Resectable Neuroblastoma, Localized Unresectable Neuroblastoma, Regional Neuroblastoma, Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, Stage 4S Neuroblastoma

Diaphragmatic Hernia Research & Exploration, Advancing Molecular Science

NCT00950118

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 ...

Conditions: Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

Chemotherapy and Pelvic Radiation Therapy With or Without Additional Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With High-Risk Early-Stage Cervical Cancer After Radical Hysterectomy

NCT00980954

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 ...

Conditions: Cervical Cancer

A Study to Assess PV-10 Chemoablation of Cancer of the Liver

NCT00986661

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.

Conditions: Cancer Metastatic to the Liver, Hepatocellular Carcinoma, Metastatic Melanoma, Metastatic Ocular Melanoma, Metastatic Uveal Melanoma, Metastatic Lung Cancer, Metastatic Colon Cancer, Metastatic Colorectal Cancer, Metastatic Breast Cancer, Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

Cardiac Sympathetic Denervation for Prevention of Ventricular Tachyarrhythmias

NCT01013714

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 ...

Mature B-Cell Lymphoma And Leukemia Study III

NCT01046825

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.

Conditions: Mature B-Cell Lymphoma
Phase: Phase 2/3
