Texas Clinical Trials

A listing of Texas clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

With over 100,000 clinical trials happening every year in United States, there are always many clinical trials going on in every state, including Texas. Hospitals, universities, pharmaceutical companies, and research organizations conduct clinical trials, and while some of them require a stay at the facilities, others just require daily or weekly visits from the volunteers.

Follow-up Visit of High Risk Infants

NCT00009633

The NICHD Neonatal Research Network's Follow-Up study is a multi-center cohort in which surviving extremely low birth-weight infants born in participating network centers receive neurodevelopmental, neurosensory and functional assessments at 22-26 months corrected age (Infants born prior to July 1, 2012 were seen at 18-22 months corrected age). Data regarding pregnancy and neonatal outcome are collected prospectively. The goal is to identify potential maternal and neonatal risk factors that may ...

Adult and Juvenile Myositis

NCT00017914

This study will evaluate subjects with adult- and childhood-onset myositis to learn more about their cause and the immune system changes and medical problems associated with them. Myositis is an inflammatory muscle disease that can damage muscles and other organs, resulting in significant disability. Children or adults with polymyositis or dermatomyositis or a related condition may be evaluated under this study. Healthy children or adults will also be enrolled as "controls," for comparison of t ...

A Prospective Database of Infants With Cholestasis

NCT00061828

Biliary atresia, idiopathic neonatal hepatitis, and specific genetic cholestatic conditions are the most common causes of jaundice and hyperbilirubinemia that continue beyond the newborn period. The long term goal of the Childhood Liver Disease Research Network (ChiLDReN) is to establish a database of clinical information and plasma, serum, and tissue samples from cholestatic children to facilitate research and to perform clinical, epidemiological and therapeutic trials in these important pediat ...

Generic Database of Very Low Birth Weight Infants

NCT00063063

The Generic Database (GDB) is a registry of very low birth weight infants born alive in NICHD Neonatal Research Network (NRN) centers. The GDB collects observational baseline data on both mothers and infants, and the therapies used and outcomes of the infants. The information collected is not specific to a disease or treatment (i.e., it is "generic"). Data are analyzed to find associations and trends between baseline information, treatments, and infant outcome, and to develop future NRN trials.

Scleroderma Registry

NCT00074568

Scleroderma is likely caused by a combination of factors, including an external trigger (infection or other exposure) and a genetic predisposition. The Scleroderma Registry will conduct genetic analyses for disease-related genes in patients with scleroderma and their family members (parents, brothers, and sisters).

Conditions: Systemic Sclerosis, Scleroderma

Genetic Analysis in Identifying Late-Occurring Complications in Childhood Cancer Survivors

NCT00082745

This clinical trial studies cancer survivors to identify those who are at increased risk of developing late-occurring complications after undergoing treatment for childhood cancer. A patient's genes may affect the risk of developing complications, such as congestive heart failure, avascular necrosis, stroke, and second cancer, years after undergoing cancer treatment. Genetic studies may help doctors identify survivors of childhood cancer who are more likely to develop late complications.

Conditions: Childhood Malignant Neoplasm

TrialNet Pathway to Prevention of T1D

NCT00097292

Rationale: The accrual of data from the laboratory and from epidemiologic and prevention trials has improved the understanding of the etiology and pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Genetic and immunologic factors play a key role in the development of T1DM, and characterization of the early metabolic abnormalities in T1DM is steadily increasing. However, information regarding the natural history of T1DM remains incomplete. The TrialNet Natural History Study of the Development of T ...

Mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I) Registry

NCT00144794

The Mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I) Registry is an ongoing, observational database that tracks the outcomes of patients with MPS I. The data collected by the MPS I Registry will provide information to better characterize the natural history and progression of MPS I as well as the clinical responses of patients receiving enzyme replacement therapy, such as Aldurazyme (Recombinant Human Alpha-L-Iduronidase), or other treatment modalities. The objectives of the Registry are: To evaluate the long- ...

Evaluation of Hemostasis in Bleeding and Thrombotic Disorders

NCT00178594

The objective of this study will be to assess the coagulation system in-vitro in a variety of bleeding and clotting disorders using the ROTEG analyzer and the thrombin generation assay.

Conditions: Blood Coagulation Disorders, Inherited, Thrombotic Disorder

Spinal Cord Injury Registry - North American Clinical Trials Network

NCT00178724

The NACTN Spinal Cord Injury Registry is a network of clinical centers collecting de-identified data from patients admitted through the Emergency Department of a NACTN center at the time of injury with an initial (first time) spinal cord injury (SCI). Information will be collected on the natural history of SCI and course of treatment through the first 12 months from the date of injury or long as medically indicated. Data collected includes imaging information from CT or MRI scans, neurological a ...

Fabry Disease Registry & Pregnancy Sub-registry

NCT00196742

The Fabry Registry is an ongoing, international multi-center, strictly observational program that tracks the routine clinical outcomes for patients with Fabry disease, irrespective of treatment status. No experimental intervention is involved; patients in the Registry undergo clinical assessments and receive care as determined by the patient's treating physician. The primary objectives of the Registry are: To enhance the understanding of the variability, progression, and natural history of Fab ...

Chromosome 18 Clinical Research Center

NCT00227253

Our vision, that of the researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, is that every person with a chromosome 18 abnormality will have an autonomous and healthy life. Our mission is to provide families affected by chromosome 18 abnormalities with comprehensive medical and educational information. Our goals are to provide definitive medical and education resources for the families of individuals with chromosome 18 abnormalities; perform and facilitate groundbreaking ...

A clinical trial is conducted when a researcher finds a potential new drug, medical device, surgical procedure or intervention that has the potential of improving the lives of many but still needs to be tested to see if it is effective and safe for humans. In the state of Texas, there are a number of paid clinical trials for willing participants.

Clinical trials can last for many years because the medication or the intervention needs to be tested on many participants to ensure its safety and effectiveness. Many hospitals such as the Houston Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas conduct clinical trials especially to find new treatments for diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and hormonal conditions. Hospitals tend to recruit participants by informing patients of the research study inviting them to participate.

On the other hand, pharmaceutical companies that develop new medications or medical devices sometimes need to hire companies to conduct all the different stages of clinical trials for them. These companies are called contract research organizations or CROs.

CROs provide management and support for institutions that need to conduct clinical trials but don't have the expertise or infrastructure to do so. CROs are responsible for recruiting the participants for the study, monitoring the trials, and ensuring that all parts of the study are being conducted according to protocol.

In Texas, there are several CROs that actively recruit volunteers year-round to participate in clinical trials. Some of the major CROs in Texas include: Covance, PPD, and Clinical Trials of Texas.
