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.

New Assessment System in Measuring Symptom Distress in Cancer Patients

NCT00505245

This trial studies how well a new assessment system (MDASI or other MD Anderson-developed PRO instrument) works in measuring symptoms and the impact on quality of life in cancer patients. Development of a new assessment system may provide more information about the common symptoms that may occur in patients due to cancer and its treatment and how the symptoms impact quality of life.

Transition From Research to Disclosure in Human Genetics

NCT00505466

The goal of this study is to design a means of providing research families, from diverse geographical locations, the chance to receive genetic testing after having been educated by video, and meetings or telephone conversations with a genetic counselor/study professional. This is an investigational study. About 800 people will be offered genetic testing. This study is being performed only at MD Anderson.

Collection of Outcomes Data for Pregnant Patients With Cancer

NCT00507572

This study collects treatment and outcomes information on pregnant patients who are or were pregnant with cancer. Gathering and storing health information on pregnant patients with cancer, may provide data for future research studies and improve patient care.

Conditions: Hematopoietic and Lymphoid Cell Neoplasm, Malignant Solid Neoplasm

Psoriasis Longitudinal Assessment and Registry

NCT00508547

The purpose of this study is to further evaluate the safety of infliximab, ustekinumab, and guselkumab in patients with plaque and other forms of psoriasis. The study also includes patients receiving other therapies, such as non-biologic and other biologic agents. The registry also evaluates patient and disease characteristics, including patient-reported assessment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA); and clinical and quality of life outcomes.

Conditions: Psoriasis

Registry for Women Who Are At Risk Or May Have Lynch Syndrome

NCT00508573

The goal of this study is to create a registry of information about women who have or are at risk for Lynch syndrome, in order to study gynecologic cancer risks. This is an investigational study. Up to 1000 patients will take part in this study. All patients will be enrolled at MD Anderson.

Conditions: Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer, Lynch Syndrome

Psychophysical Studies of Cancer Therapy Pain

NCT00515060

The Aim of this Study is to examine the feasibility of using quantitative sensory testing procedures, widely applied to the experimental study of sensory processing in humans both with and without various pain syndromes, to now characterize the psychophysical properties of neuropathic pain that has developed as a consequence of cancer therapy. Skin punch biopsies will be performed in patients with chemotherapy-induced pain to determine whether the impairment of nerve function is due to actual re ...

Use of the CA 125 Algorithm for the Early Detection of Ovarian Cancer in Low Risk Women

NCT00539162

The goal of this clinical research study is to evaluate a method involving a blood test, called CA-125, that may be helpful in the early detection of ovarian cancer in women who are at low risk.

Conditions: Ovarian Cancer

Different Therapies in Treating Infants With Newly Diagnosed Acute Leukemia

NCT00550992

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy before a donor stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It also helps stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can make an immune response against the body's normal cells. Giving cyclosporine, me ...

Longitudinal Study of Genetic Causes of Intrahepatic Cholestasis (LOGIC)

NCT00571272

Cholestasis is a condition in which bile is not properly transported from the liver to the small intestine. Cholestasis can be caused by an array of childhood diseases, including the genetic diseases Alagille syndrome (ALGS), alpha-1 antitrypsin (a-1AT) deficiency, bile acid synthesis and metabolism defects, and progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis (PFIC) or benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis(BRIC). This study will investigate the natural history and progression of the four previ ...

Incidence and Factors Associated With the Development and Severity of Oral Mucositis

NCT00575809

Our study intends to evaluate prospectively the incidence and severity of oral mucositis in patients undergoing high-dose chemotherapy and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, as well as to evaluate the potential influence of nutritional-, physical-, and transplant-related factors associated with the development of this complication and its grade of involvement.

Conditions: Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation

Proton RT for the Treatment of Pediatric Rhabdomyosarcoma

NCT00592592

The main purpose of this study is to see if using proton beam radiation therapy instead of photon beam radiation therapy can reduce side effects from radiation treatment for rhabdomyosarcoma. Photon beam radiation is the standard type of radiation for treating most rhabdomyosarcoma and many other types of cancer. Photon beam radiation enters the body and passes through healthy tissue, encounters the tumor, then leaves the body through healthy tissue. A beam of proton radiation enters the body an ...

International Hernia Mesh Registry

NCT00622583

This is an open-label, multi-center, long-term, prospective hernia mesh registry. A minimum of 4,800 hernia patients will be enrolled from approximately 60 active sites globally

Conditions: Hernia

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.
