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.

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement to UNload the Left Ventricle in Patients With ADvanced Heart Failure (TAVR UNLOAD)
The objective of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) via a transfemoral approach in HF patients with moderate AS as compared with OHFT.
Reduced Craniospinal Radiation Therapy and Chemotherapy in Treating Younger Patients With Newly Diagnosed WNT-Driven Medulloblastoma
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
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.
A 5-year Longitudinal Observational Study of Patients With Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver (NAFL) or Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)
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
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
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
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.
Skeletal Muscle Atrophy and Dysfunction in Human Cancer
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
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 ...
Testing MK-3475 (Pembrolizumab) as Adjuvant Therapy for Triple Receptor-Negative Breast Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies how well pembrolizumab works in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
3T MRI CIED Post-Approval Study
The purpose of this study is to evaluate product performance of Magnetic Resonance (MR) Conditional Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices (CIED) following 3 tesla (3T) MRI exposure. This will be achieved by evaluating the changes in pacing capture threshold (PCT) measurements following 3T MRI scan exposure. This study is required by FDA as a condition of approval of 3T MRI compatible labeling of applicable CIED systems. This study is conducted within Medtronic's post-market surveillance platfor ...
Assessing Breast Density's Value in Imaging - A Comparative Effectiveness Study
This Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (BCSC) ADVANCE study is a large, observational pragmatic comparative effectiveness research study using high-quality, prospectively collected data from BCSC registries to generate evidence on how breast density should be integrated into decision making around breast cancer screening and preoperative diagnostic work-up. We will augment existing BCSC registry infrastructure with additional prospective data collection and collection of patient reported out ...
