West Virginia Clinical Trials

A listing of West Virginia Clinical Trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.

One of the largest and most populous states in the nation, West Virginia's terrain is defined by the Appalachian Mountains that once gave rise to a frenetic coal mining industry. Now shifting toward a diverse economy with more than $4 billion in annual tourism and lots of green energy initiatives, the future has arrived in cities like capital Charleston, Morgantown, Huntington, and Wheeling. The last few years have seen strong investment in healthcare infrastructure: There are more than 80 hospitals and medical centers. That includes 393-bed St. Mary's Medical Center in Huntington, which merged with a major competitor in 2014.

Genetic Analysis in Identifying Late-Occurring Complications in Childhood Cancer Survivors

NCT00082745

This clinical trial studies cancer survivors to identify those who are at increased risk of developing late-occurring complications after undergoing treatment for childhood cancer. A patient's genes may affect the risk of developing complications, such as congestive heart failure, avascular necrosis, stroke, and second cancer, years after undergoing cancer treatment. Genetic studies may help doctors identify survivors of childhood cancer who are more likely to develop late complications.

Conditions: Childhood Malignant Neoplasm

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

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

Radiation Therapy With Concomitant and Adjuvant Temozolomide Versus Radiation Therapy With Adjuvant PCV Chemotherapy in Patients With Anaplastic Glioma or Low Grade Glioma

NCT00887146

Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether giving radiation with concomitant and adjuvant temozolomide versus radiation with adjuvant PCV is more effective in treating anaplastic glioma or low grade glioma.

Conditions: Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors

Study of Kidney Tumors in Younger Patients

NCT00898365

This research trial studies kidney tumors in younger patients. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, blood, and urine from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and identify biomarkers related to cancer.

Conditions: Adult Cystic Nephroma, Anaplastic Kidney Wilms Tumor, Angiolipoma, Cellular Congenital Mesoblastic Nephroma, Classic Congenital Mesoblastic Nephroma, Clear Cell Sarcoma of the Kidney, Congenital Mesoblastic Nephroma, Cystic Partially Differentiated Kidney Nephroblastoma, Diffuse Hyperplastic Perilobar Nephroblastomatosis, Extrarenal Rhabdoid Tumor, Kidney Medullary Carcinoma, Kidney Neoplasm, Kidney Oncocytoma, Kidney Wilms Tumor, Metanephric Adenofibroma, Metanephric Adenoma, Metanephric Stromal Tumor, Metanephric Tumor, Mixed Congenital Mesoblastic Nephroma, Ossifying Renal Tumor of Infancy, Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma, Renal Cell Carcinoma, Renal Cell Carcinoma Associated With Xp11.2 Translocations/TFE3 Gene Fusions, Rhabdoid Tumor of the Kidney, Wilms Tumor

Biomarkers in Tumor Tissue Samples From Patients With Newly Diagnosed Neuroblastoma or Ganglioneuroblastoma

NCT00904241

This research trial studies biomarkers in tumor tissue samples from patients with newly diagnosed neuroblastoma or ganglioneuroblastoma. Studying samples of tumor tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer.

Conditions: Ganglioneuroblastoma, Localized Resectable Neuroblastoma, Localized Unresectable Neuroblastoma, Regional Neuroblastoma, Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, Stage 4S Neuroblastoma

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

S0820, Adenoma and Second Primary Prevention Trial

NCT01349881

The investigators hypothesize that the combination of eflornithine and sulindac will be effective in reducing a three-year event rate of adenomas and second primary colorectal cancers in patients previously treated for Stages 0 through III colon or rectal cancer.

Conditions: Colorectal Neoplasms
