This phase IIa trial investigates the biomarker (plasma levels of PSA) of low-dose apalutamide in patients with prostate cancer confined in the prostate gland before surgery. Testosterone can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells, and Apalutamide blocks the use of testosterone by the tumor…

The study hypothesis is that BCG naïve non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) patients treated with intravesical Gemcitabine + Docetaxel (GEMDOCE) will result in a non-inferior event-free survival (EFS) compared to standard treatment with intravesical BCG. The purpose of this study is to…

The purpose of this clinical study is to learn about the safety, extent of the side effects (reaction to vaccine), and immune response (your immune system's reaction) of the study vaccine called Varicella Zoster Virus modRNA (VZV modRNA). We are seeking for healthy participants who are between…

This is a randomized, parallel, open label Phase II single-arm window trial to assess the clinical and biological effects of neoadjuvant abemaciclib in patients with HPV-negative head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC).

This phase II trial tests whether broccoli seed and sprout extract works to break down cancer causing substances of tobacco in heavy smokers. Smokers are at increased risk for developing lung, head and neck, and other cancers. Broccoli seed and sprout extract may help break down and remove toxic…

This phase II trial studies the side effects of chemotherapy and intensity modulated radiation therapy in treating patients with low-risk HIV-associated anal cancer, and nivolumab after standard of care chemotherapy and radiation therapy in treating patients with high-risk HIV-associated anal…

GW joins a nationwide network of research centers in the Northeast ALS (NEALS) Consortium who are partnering with the Sean M HEALEY & AMG Center to conduct the first ALS platform trial. The platform trial is designed in a way that allows for testing multiple drugs simultaneously while…

The purpose of the study is to assess the success of a single administration of Staccato alprazolam compared with placebo both in rapidly terminating a seizure episode within 90 seconds and with no recurrence of seizure(s) up to 2 hours after investigational medicinal product (IMP)…

SATURN is a multi-center, pragmatic, prospective, randomized, open-label, and blinded end-point assessment (PROBE) clinical trial. A total of 1,456 patients presenting within 7 days of a spontaneous lobar ICH while taking statins will be randomized to one of two treatment strategies:…

Phase II Randomized Trial of Radiotherapy With or Without Cisplatin for Surgically Resected Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (SCCHN) With TP53 Sequencing (EA3132)

Our overall goal at Mommy&Me is to partner with former patients, moms with experience giving birth in D.C. and other members of low-income Black communities to develop and test different approaches to overcome obstacles and achieve health equity by providing effective mental health screening…

Primary Objective: to compare the non-inferiority of bilateral salpingectomy (BLS) with delayed oophorectomy to bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO) to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer among women with deleterious BRCA1 germline mutations.

Primary Outcome Measures: Rate of Progression to Prostate Cancer (PCa) [Time Frame: 24 months]
Number of participants with clinical progression defined as a composite outcome on repeat prostate biopsy >33% of biopsy cores positive for cancer or >50% of any biopsy tissue core positive…
