Utah Clinical Trials

A listing of Utah clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

Settled predominantly by Mormons in the 1800s, Utah stands out for the lowest income inequality of any U.S. state. Its capital and largest city is Salt Lake City, which serves as the world headquarters of the LDS Church. Other key cities are Park City, St. George, and Ogden. Utah's unique history gives it a flavor unlike anywhere else in the United States. Healthcare is a high priority. Intermountain Regional Medical Center, flagship of Intermountain Healthcare, sees patients from Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Nevada. It has more than 500 beds and is the largest hospital in Utah, near Salt Lake City.

Natural History Study of and Genetic Modifiers in Spinocerebellar Ataxias

NCT01060371

Spinocerebellar ataxias (SCA) are genetic neurological diseases that cause imbalance, poor coordination, and speech difficulties. There are different kinds of SCA and this study will focus on types 1, 2,3, and 6 (SCA 1, SCA 2, SCA 3 , also known as Machado-Joseph disease and SCA 6). The diseases are rare, slowly progressive, cause increasingly severe neurological difficulties and are variable across and within genotypes. The purpose of this research study is to bring together a group of experts ...

Assessing Changes in Myocardial Tissue and Blood in Patients With Advanced Heart Disease

NCT01099982

Hypothesis: Tissue and serum samples collected from end-stage heart failure patients receiving left ventricular assist device implantation (LVAD) or heart transplantation will provide information regarding the basic science of heart disease. Tissue and serum samples collected from a limited numbers of "healthy controls" (donor grafts that were not utilized for heart transplantation) will serve as a comparator in research database projects. Design: This is a registry project; there are no inve ...

Radiation Therapy With or Without Chemotherapy in Patients With Stage I-IIA Cervical Cancer Who Previously Underwent Surgery

NCT01101451

This randomized phase III trial studies radiation therapy with chemotherapy to see how well they work compared to radiation therapy alone in treating patients with stage I-IIA cervical cancer who previously underwent surgery. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, 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. It is not ...

Conditions: Cervical Adenocarcinoma, Cervical Adenosquamous Carcinoma, Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Not Otherwise Specified, Stage I Cervical Cancer AJCC v6 and v7, Stage IA Cervical Cancer AJCC v6 and v7, Stage IB Cervical Cancer AJCC v6 and v7, Stage IIA Cervical Cancer AJCC v7

A Prospective, Noninterventional Follow-Up Study of Children Aged 23 to 25 Months, Born to Mothers Who Received Hydroxyprogesterone Caproate Injection, 250 mg/mL, or Vehicle for Prevention of Preterm Birth

NCT01146990

In the continuing efforts to understand the benefits and risks of in utero exposure to 17P this study is designed to evaluate differences in developmental outcomes of children, aged 23 to 25 months, born to mothers who participated in the 17P Efficacy Trial sponsored by Hologic (Protocol number 17P-ES-003).

Conditions: Children Whose Mothers Received 17P and Those Who Received Vehicle in the 17P Efficacy Trial

Longitudinal Study of Mitochondrial Hepatopathies

NCT01148550

The specific aims of this study are (1) to determine the clinical phenotypes and natural history of hepatic RC and FAO disorders, (2) to determine the correlation between genotype and phenotype, (3) to determine if circulating biomarkers reflect diagnosis and predict liver disease progression and survival with the native liver, (4) to determine the clinical outcome of these disorders following liver transplantation, and (5) to develop a repository of serum, plasma, urine, tissue and DNA specimen ...

Cerebral Hemorrhage Risk in Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia

NCT01158807

This study is one of the three projects of an NIH Rare Disease Clinical Research Consortium. A "consortium" is a group of centres sharing information and resources to perform research. The consortium research focuses on brain blood vessel malformations in three different rare diseases. The focus of this specific study is on Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT). HHT is a condition characterized by blood vessel malformations, called telangiectasia and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), occurring in ...

Web Based Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Registry

NCT01191151

The purpose of this study is to establish an international, web based clinical registry to collect baseline characteristics of patients undergoing orthopaedic, sports medicine, arthroscopy, and related surgery, and the subsequent outcomes and cost-effectiveness associated with the surgical procedures and nonoperative treatments.

Conditions: Degenerative and Traumatic Pathology of the Knee, Degenerative and Traumatic Pathology of the Shoulder and Elbow, Degenerative and Traumatic Pathology of the Foot and Ankle, Degenerative and Traumatic Pathology of the Hand and Wrist, Degenerative and Traumatic Pathology of the Hip

Congenital Heart Disease GEnetic NEtwork Study (CHD GENES)

NCT01196182

Congenital heart defects (CHD) are the most common major human birth malformation, affecting ~8 per 1,000 live births. CHD are associated with significant morbidity and mortality, and are second only to infectious diseases in contributing to the infant mortality rate. Current understanding of the etiology of pediatric cardiovascular disorders is limited. The Congenital Heart Disease GEnetic NEtwork Study (CHD GENES) is a multi-center, prospective observational cohort study. Participants will be ...

One-Time DNA Study for Vasculitis

NCT01241305

The purpose of this study is to identify genes that increase the risk of developing vasculitis, a group of severe diseases that feature inflammation of blood vessels. Results of these studies will provide vasculitis researchers with insight into the causes of these diseases and generate new ideas for diagnostic tests and therapies, and will be of great interest to the larger communities of researchers investigating vasculitis and other autoimmune, inflammatory, and vascular diseases.

Whole-leg Ultrasound in Pregnant Patients

NCT01319474

This study seeks to determine the rate of thromboembolic complications (blood clots), including death attributed to thromboembolic disease, when anticoagulation (blood thinner) therapy is withheld from pregnant patients suspected of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after a whole-leg compression ultrasound shows no DVT. Patients are followed for three months after the ultrasound to determine if a blood clot is diagnosed during that time.
