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.
Host Immune Response to Novel RNA COVID Vaccination
To determine the antibody response level in patients with cancer to the COVID-19 vaccination.
A Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial for Hand Osteoarthritis
This is a study involving people receiving care at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center, Houston Texas. We are studying people who have hand osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis that involves the hand) and testing treatments for the condition with the hope that we can help to improve hand pain as well as limit the damage that occurs related to the arthritis. People who choose to participate, are randomly assigned to one of two treatments, both expected to be helpful.
Walking After Surgery to Improve Recovery and Outcomes After Surgery, AIRTECH Study
This clinical trial evaluates the relationship between walking and sleeping habits and surgical outcomes in patients with lung cancer. Early walking after surgery is associated with decreased or less severe complications. Learning about how much patients walk may be important in improving outcomes after surgery. Information gained from this trial may help researchers develop interventions to improve outcomes after surgery and improve overall quality of life after surgery in patients with lung ca ...
Evaluation of CRS3123 vs. Oral Vancomycin in Adult Patients With Clostridioides Difficile Infection
The purpose of this research is to evaluate the primary objectives of safety and efficacy (rate of clinical cure) of 2 dosages of CRS3123 (200 mg and 400 mg) administered orally (po) twice daily (bid) and vancomycin administered 125 mg PO 4 times daily (qid) in adults > or equal to 18 years of age with a primary episode or first recurrence of CDI. The study will investigate the plasma concentrations and HRQoL outcomes of CRS3123 and additional efficacy endpoints as secondary objectives.
Quality of Life, Lifestyle, and Psychosocial Factors in Patients With Melanoma
This study investigates the extent to which lifestyle factors including mental health, social support, diet, and exercise are associated with quality of life and melanoma patient outcomes. Knowledge gained from this study may be used to guide the design of prospective clinical trials of lifestyle interventions to improve the outcomes of melanoma patients and assist doctors in counseling their patients.
Hypnosis for Sleep Quality in Caregivers of Individuals With Alzheimer's Disease
The long-range goal is to identify an efficacious and practical intervention to improve sleep quality and duration for family caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD). The main goal of this study is to determine feasibility of a self-administered hypnosis intervention with caregivers of individuals with ADRD by randomizing eligible participants into one of two study arms, self-administered hypnosis (treatment group) or sham white noise hypnosis (control gro ...
A Phase II Study in Patients With Moderate to Severe ARDS Due to COVID-19
This is a Phase II multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study in Patients with moderate to severe lung injury due to COVID-19 or other potential viral and bacterial pathogens.
A Phase 1 Study With ABBV-CLS-484 Alone and in Combination in Subjects With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Tumors
The study will assess the safety, PK, PD, and preliminary efficacy of ABBV-CLS-484 as monotherapy and in combination with a PD-1 targeting agent. The trial aims to establish a safe, tolerable, and efficacious dose of ABBV-CLS-484 as monotherapy and in combination. The study will be conducted in three parts. Part 1 Monotherapy Dose Escalation, Part 2 Combination Dose Escalation and Part 3 Dose Expansion (Monotherapy and Combination therapy). Part 1, ABBV-CLS-484 will be administered alone in esc ...
Pre-transplant Immunosuppression and Donor Stem Cell Transplant for the Treatment of Severe Hemoglobinopathies
This clinical trial studies the effect of pre-transplant immunosuppression (PTIS) and donor stem cell transplant in treating patients with severe blood diseases (hemoglobinopathies). PTIS helps prepare the body for the transplant and lowers the risk of developing graft versus host disease (GVHD). Hematopoietic cells are found in the bone marrow and produce blood cells. Hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) injects healthy hematopoietic cells into the body to support blood cell production. PTI ...
Expressive Writing for the Management of Stress in Cancer Survivors
This clinical trial evaluates the effect of expressive writing for the management of stress in cancer survivors. Cancer diagnosis and treatment are associated with increased stress in cancer survivors related to concerns about family, career, relationships, finances, side effects of treatment, and death. This stress can be further exacerbated by social upheavals such as the COVID-19 pandemic. For safety reasons, many patients are isolated with restricted access to in-person health care and reduc ...
Computer Aided Polyp Detection (C3PO) Trial
Computer aided detection (CADe) algorithms have been developed to overcome human errors and assist endoscopists in detecting more polyps during colonoscopy. The aim of this study was to investigate the accuracy of the novel Pentax Discovery CADe system (Discovery-AI) against pre-recorded videos of colon polyps of various size, shape and pathology while using videos of normal colon segments as controls from two different institutes.
Effect of Digital Health Coaching Program on Self-efficacy and Patient Reported Outcomes of Patients With Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
This trial studies the effect of a digital health coaching program on self-efficacy and patient reported outcomes of patients with acute myeloid leukemia or chronic lymphocytic leukemia that is newly diagnosed. A digital health coaching program may help leukemia patients report information about their health while receiving treatment, which may lead to improvement in overall health.
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.
