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.

Pompe Disease Registry Protocol

NCT00231400

The Pompe Registry is a global, multicenter, international, longitudinal, observational, and voluntary program for patients with Pompe disease, designed to track the disease's natural history and outcomes in patients, both treated and not. Data from the Registry are also used to fulfill various global regulatory commitments, to support product development/reimbursement, and for other research and non-research related purposes. The objectives of the Registry are: To enhance understanding of the ...

Conditions: Glycogen Storage Disease Type II, Pompe Disease

Longitudinal Study of Urea Cycle Disorders

NCT00237315

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.

Conditions: Brain Diseases, Metabolic, Inborn, Amino Acid Metabolism, Inborn Errors, Urea Cycle Disorders

Product Performance Report: Evaluate Long-term Reliability & Performance of Medtronic Marketed Cardiac Therapy Products

NCT00271180

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.

Conditions: Arrhythmia, Bradycardia, Heart Failure, Sinus Tachycardia

Biliary Atresia Study in Infants and Children

NCT00345553

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- ...

Conditions: Biliary Atresia

International Collaborative Gaucher Group (ICGG) Gaucher Disease Registry & Pregnancy Sub-registry

NCT00358943

The ICGG Gaucher Registry is an ongoing, international multi-center, strictly observational program that tracks the routine clinical outcomes for patients with Gaucher 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 objectives of the Registry are: To enhance understanding of the variability, progression, identification, and natural h ...

Cladribine and Rituximab in Treating Patients With Hairy Cell Leukemia

NCT00412594

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 ...

Conditions: Hairy Cell Leukemia, Recurrent Hairy Cell Leukemia

Substance Abuse Pre-Treatment Screening Study

NCT00439049

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.

Conditions: Cocaine Abuse, Cocaine Dependence, Opiate Dependence, Alcohol Dependence, Substance Abuse

Safety Follow-up Study in Subjects With Silicone Gel-filled Breast Implants as Compared Both to Saline-filled Breast Implants and to National Norms

NCT00443274

Ten year safety study examining rates of rare adverse events, child bearing issues, effects of mammography, MRI compliance and results, and long-term benefit of silicone-filled breast implants.

Conditions: Breast Implant

Pegasys® in Patients With Myeloproliferative Diseases

NCT00452023

The goal of this clinical research study is to see if Pegasys (IFN-alpha2a) can help to control the disease in patients with ET, PV, AMM/MF, and Ph-negative CML. The safety of this treatment will also be studied.

Conditions: Myeloproliferative Disorders

Biospecimen and Medical Data Collection and Tumor Biopsy in Creating Research Tissue Registry in Patients With Inflammatory or Invasive Breast Cancer

NCT00477100

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.

Conditions: Inflammatory Breast Carcinoma, Invasive Breast Carcinoma, Second Primary Malignant Neoplasm

Data Collection for Patients With Low Grade Ovarian or Peritoneal Tumors

NCT00488878

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.

Conditions: Low Grade Ovarian Serous Adenocarcinoma, Malignant Ovarian Neoplasm, Ovarian Carcinoma, Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma, Primary Peritoneal Low Grade Serous Adenocarcinoma, Psammocarcinoma

Cardiomyopathy Tissue Bank in a Cancer Population

NCT00500734

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 ...

Conditions: Heart Disease

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.
