Vermont Clinical Trials

A listing of Vermont clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

Situated in the northeast, Vermont is the only state in New England that doesn't border the Atlantic Ocean. It sits just behind Rhode Island as the second least populated U.S. state overall, known for its dairy farming and forestry. Burlington, Stowe, and Montpelier are some of the top cities, with the latter also serving as the state capital – though Burlington, the biggest, has only about 43,000 residents. Vermont truly stands out as a leader in healthcare innovation despite its modest size. The University of Vermont Medical Center, which has about 6,400 employees, is the largest employer in the entire state.

Reduced Craniospinal Radiation Therapy and Chemotherapy in Treating Younger Patients With Newly Diagnosed WNT-Driven Medulloblastoma

NCT02724579

This phase II trial studies how well reduced doses of radiation therapy to the brain and spine (craniospinal) and chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed type of brain tumor called WNT)/Wingless (WNT)-driven medulloblastoma. Recent studies using chemotherapy and radiation therapy have been shown to be effective in treating patients with WNT-driven medulloblastoma. However, there is a concern about the late side effects of treatment, such as learning difficulties, lower amount ...

Low Dose Oral Methotrexate in Pediatric Crohn's Disease Patients Initiating Anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor (Anti-TNF) Therapy

NCT02772965

The purpose of this study is to determine whether adding low dose methotrexate to anti -TNF therapy is more effective than treatment with anti-TNF therapy alone in inducing and maintaining steroid-free remission for children with Crohn's Disease.

Conditions: Pediatric Crohn's Disease

A 5-year Longitudinal Observational Study of Patients With Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver (NAFL) or Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)

NCT02815891

TARGET-NASH is a longitudinal observational cohort study of patients being managed for NAFL or NASH in usual clinical practice. TARGET-NASH will create a research registry of patients with NAFL or NASH within academic and community real-world practices in order to assess the safety and effectiveness of current and future therapies.

Nivolumab and Ipilimumab in Treating Patients With Rare Tumors

NCT02834013

This phase II trial studies nivolumab and ipilimumab in treating patients with rare tumors. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. This trial enrolls participants for the following cohorts based on condition: Epithelial tumors of nasal cavity, sinuses, nasopharynx: A) Squamous cell carcinoma with variants of nasal cavity, sinuses, and n ...

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Atezolizumab in Treating Patients With Stage III Colon Cancer and Deficient DNA Mismatch Repair

NCT02912559

This phase III trial studies combination chemotherapy and atezolizumab to see how well it works compared with combination chemotherapy alone in treating patients with stage III colon cancer and deficient deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) mismatch repair. Drugs used in combination chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin, leucovorin calcium, 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 spreadin ...

Comparing an Operation to Monitoring, With or Without Endocrine Therapy (COMET) Trial For Low Risk DCIS

NCT02926911

This study looks at the risks and benefits of active monitoring (AM) compared to surgery in the setting of a pragmatic prospective randomized trial for low risk DCIS. Our overarching hypothesis is that management of low-risk Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) using an AM approach does not yield inferior cancer or quality of life outcomes compared to surgery.

Conditions: DCIS, Ductal Carcinoma in Situ
Phase: Not Applicable

Skeletal Muscle Atrophy and Dysfunction in Human Cancer

NCT02949076

Cancer and its treatment can have profound effects on skeletal muscle, the most well-recognized being atrophy, weakness and diminished oxidative capacity. These adaptations negatively impact quality of life, treatment decisions and survival. Despite these consequences, the factors promoting these adaptations remain poorly defined and understudied in human patients. To address this gap in knowledge, our goal in this study is to examine the role of muscle disuse as a regulator of muscle size and f ...

Increased Lung Volume as Controller Therapy for Asthma

NCT02953431

This is an early phase clinical trial to test the efficacy of elevating lung volume with positive expiratory pressure (CPAP) as a controller therapy for asthma in patients with a BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2. There will be two phases to this trial. Phase I: In the first phase we will determine the optimal duration of CPAP that is effective as a controller therapy in asthma. Up to 9 participants will complete this this phase. Phase II: The 2nd phase will be a randomized double-blinded controlled trial of ...
