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.

Longitudinal Study of Urea Cycle Disorders
Urea cycle disorders (UCD) are a group of rare inherited metabolism disorders. Infants and children with UCD commonly experience episodes of vomiting, lethargy, and coma. The purpose of this study is to perform a long-term analysis of a large group of individuals with various UCDs. The study will focus on the natural history, disease progression, treatment, and outcome of individuals with UCD.
Product Performance Report: Evaluate Long-term Reliability & Performance of Medtronic Marketed Cardiac Therapy Products
The main purpose of the Product Performance Report (formerly referred to as System Longevity Study) is to evaluate long-term performance of Medtronic market-released cardiac rhythm products by analyzing product survival probabilities.
Cooperative Huntington's Observational Research Trial
The purpose of this study is to collect prospective data from individuals who are part of a Huntington Disease (HD) family, in order to relate phenotypes between individuals and families with each other and genetic factors in order to learn more about HD, develop potential treatments for HD, and to plan for future research studies of experimental drugs aimed at slowing or postponing the onset and progression of HD.
Lymphodepletion Plus Adoptive Cell Transfer With or Without Dendritic Cell Immunization in Patients With Metastatic Melanoma
Objectives: The primary objective will be to determine whether patients receiving the combination of dendritic cells and high dose IL-2 (Cohort A) have sustained persistence of infused T cells compared to patients treated with T cells and high dose IL-2 alone. Secondary endpoints will include evaluations for tumor response and studies to determine whether dendritic cells enhance the infused T cells in anti-tumor activity and their ability to migrate to the tumor site. In addition, we will eval ...
Biliary Atresia Study in Infants and Children
Little is known about the factors that cause biliary atresia nor the factors that influence disease progression. The purpose of this study is to collect the pertinent clinical information, genetic material and body fluid samples to enable investigators to address the following aims: To identify the gene or genes implicated in the etiology of BA; To identify polymorphisms that may be important in disease progression such as HLA polymorphisms; To characterize the natural history of the older, non- ...
Effects of Cancer Symptoms on Caregivers
The primary objectives are to: 1.1 identify and compare the experiences of minority and nonminority caregivers, including the prevalence and severity of physical (fatigue, sleep disturbance) and psychologic (depression, anxiety, stress) symptoms and their influence on caregiver symptom burden; and to 1.2 assess the relationship between caregiver's symptoms (physical and psychologic) and the patient's symptom's at multiple time points over the patient's treatment regimen for advanced solid tumo ...
Cladribine and Rituximab in Treating Patients With Hairy Cell Leukemia
This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well cladribine and rituximab work in treating patients with hairy cell leukemia. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cladribine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cell ...
Substance Abuse Pre-Treatment Screening Study
The overarching goal of this project is to have a consolidated consent and evaluation procedure that will lead potential subjects to the most appropriate clinical trial or human laboratory study (and its consent process) for their presenting concerns or interests. A second purpose is to have a consolidated intake data base on which secondary analyses can be conducted.
Biospecimen and Medical Data Collection and Tumor Biopsy in Creating Research Tissue Registry in Patients With Inflammatory or Invasive Breast Cancer
This trial studies the biospecimen and medical data collection in creating a research tissue registry in patients with inflammatory or invasive breast cancer. Collecting medical data and storing samples of blood, tissue, and stool from patients with inflammatory breast cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors find better ways to treat and study inflammatory breast cancer in the future.
Data Collection for Patients With Low Grade Ovarian or Peritoneal Tumors
This study collects information to maintain a database on patients with low-grade ovarian or peritoneal tumors. Collecting information about the type of cancer and treatment, as well as details about follow-up care, may help researchers learn and better understand these tumor types and help develop better treatments for them.
Cardiomyopathy Tissue Bank in a Cancer Population
Any time the words "you," "your," "I," or "me" appear, it is meant to apply to the potential participant. The goal of this laboratory research study is to collect and store blood and tissue from patients who have a diagnosis of heart disease and may be at a high risk for the development of heart failure. This blood may be used in the future to identify genes that may play a role in developing congestive heart failure (CHF) from chemotherapy or other sources. This is an investigational study. A ...
Combination Chemotherapy and Nelarabine in Treating Patients With T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or Lymphoblastic Lymphoma
This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well combination chemotherapy and nelarabine work in treating patients with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia or lymphoblastic lymphoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin, dexamethasone, methotrexate, cytarabine, mercaptopurine, prednisone, pegaspargase, nelarabine, and venetoclax work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing ...
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.
