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.

Study of Selected X-Linked Disorders: Aicardi Syndrome

NCT00697411

Based on our current understanding of Aicardi syndrome, the condition is hypothesized to occur due to a genetic change on the X-chromosome. The research team is investigating Aicardi syndrome to identify the specific gene location associated with the disorder. Th investigators are collecting blood and skin biopsy samples from patients and their parents. A permanent cell line is prepared and DNA from the blood and skin samples and cell lines is isolated and then used for genetic testing. The curr ...

Docetaxel, Cisplatin and Fluorouracil in Treating Patients With Previously Untreated Stage II-IV Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Cancer

NCT00707473

This phase II trial studies how well docetaxel, cisplatin and fluorouracil work in treating patients with previously untreated stage II-IV nasal cavity and/or paranasal sinus cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, cisplatin and fluorouracil, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.

Conditions: Locally Advanced Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Poorly Differentiated Carcinoma, Sinonasal Undifferentiated Carcinoma, Stage II Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Cancer AJCC v8, Stage III Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Cancer AJCC v8, Stage IVA Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Cancer AJCC v8, Stage IVB Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Cancer AJCC v8

Long-Term Follow-Up of Patients Who Have Participated in Children's Oncology Group Studies

NCT00736749

This clinical trial keeps track of and collects follow-up information from patients who are currently enrolled on or have participated in a Children's Oncology Group study. Developing a way to keep track of patients who have participated in Children's Oncology Group studies may allow doctors learn more about the long-term effects of cancer treatment and help them reduce problems related to treatment and improve patient quality of life.

Conditions: Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Brain Neoplasm, Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation Recipient, Hodgkin Lymphoma, Osteosarcoma, Rhabdomyosarcoma

Prostate Active Surveillance Study

NCT00756665

The Prostate Active Surveillance Study (PASS) is a research study for men who have chosen active surveillance as a management plan for their prostate cancer. Active surveillance is defined as close monitoring of prostate cancer with the offer of treatment if there are changes in test results. This study seeks to discover markers that will identify cancers that are more aggressive from those tumors that grow slowly.

Conditions: Prostatic Neoplasms

Neuropsychological and Behavioral Testing in Younger Patients With Cancer

NCT00772200

This research trial studies neuropsychological (learning, remembering or thinking) and behavioral outcomes in children and adolescents with cancer by collecting information over time from a series of tests.

Conditions: Childhood Malignant Neoplasm

A Safety Extension Study of Trastuzumab Emtansine in Participants Previously Treated With Trastuzumab Emtansine Alone or in Combination With Other Anti-Cancer Therapy in One of the Parent Studies

NCT00781612

This is a global, multicenter, open-label safety extension study. Participants receiving single-agent trastuzumab emtansine or trastuzumab emtansine administered in combination with other anti-cancer therapies in a Genentech / Roche-sponsored parent study who are active and receiving benefit at the closure of parent study are eligible for continued treatment in this study.

Conditions: Neoplasm Metastasis

Filgrastim-Mobilized Stem Cells for Transplantation Using Unrelated Donors

NCT00785525

The purpose of the study is to: Establish and evaluate a system for collection of filgrastim-mobilized peripheral blood stem cells from National Marrow Donor Program donors (NMDP) donors Assess the safety among NMDP donors of filgrastim administration and PBSC leukapheresis Assess the safety and efficacy of filgrastim-mobilized PBSC in unrelated donor hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients Determine the acceptability of stem cell donation by filgrastim stimulated apheresis in normal dono ...

Longitudinal Evaluation of Women Undergoing Pelvic Surgery for the Treatment of Gynecologic Cancer

NCT00791635

The study investigates whether certain characteristics of gynecological cancer can help researchers predict how well a patient recovers from surgery to remove the lower colon, rectum, and bladder, and create openings through which urine and stool are passed out of the body (pelvic exenteration). Comparing the types of surgery completed and procedures used may help researchers to determine which are most effective and safe in patients with a history of gynecologic cancer.

Fludarabine Phosphate, Cytarabine, Filgrastim-sndz, Gemtuzumab Ozogamicin, and Idarubicin Hydrochloride in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia or High-Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome

NCT00801489

This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well fludarabine phosphate, cytarabine, filgrastim-sndz, gemtuzumab ozogamicin, and idarubicin hydrochloride work in treating patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fludarabine phosphate, cytarabine, and idarubicin hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Gemtuz ...

Chart Review Study of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) Patients Treated With Imatinib Outside of a Clinical Trial

NCT00816114

In this study researchers propose to do a chart review of all patients that are treated outside of a clinical trial with imatinib, dasatinib, nilotinib, or any other tyrosine kinase inhibitor that becomes FDA approved for the managements of CML that come to MDACC for a second opinion. This is an important population of patients that differs in their management from patients treated in clinical trials for several reasons including but not limited to: It represents a very large patient population ...

Conditions: Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia

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.
