Clinical Trials Finder
The purpose of a clinical trial is to determine the most effective and safest treatment for a disease. Clinical trial evaluation is a key step to translating research into new medicines that can provide better outcomes for patients. The performance of clinical trials is a vital component of U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s drug approval process, without which advances in therapeutics for brain tumor patients would not be possible. Often the lengthiest aspect of the drug approval process is finding people to participate in trials. The Clinical Trial Finder is intended to help raise awareness and increase participation in clinical trials to facilitate brain tumor research and accelerate the development of new drugs and treatments for patients.

As a result of your search and after reviewing the details, if you are interested in learning more about a trial, identify the trial site nearest to your location and contact the site coordinator via email or phone. We also strongly recommend that you consult with your healthcare provider about the trials that may interest you and refer to our terms of service below.
The information returned from your search has been obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
A Blood Based Diagnostic Test for Coeliac Disease
Persons with coeliac disease treated with a gluten free diet will be asked to give blood for a new diagnostic blood test. In this test investigators will use multimerized HLA bound to different gliadin-peptides (tetramer) and with the help of a flow-cytometer identify (along with other relevant T-cell-markers) gluten specific T-cells. Investigators believe that these cells will be present in persons with coeliac disease regardless of gluten-intake. Investigators will compare their findings with two control groups; Persons on a gluten free diet where celiac disease is excluded (gluten sensitive group) and persons on a gluten containing diet...18 Years and Over
Acute Abdomen in Adults- a Prospective Study on Emergency Department Admissions
This is a non-randomized, prospective, population-based, single-center study designed to evaluate conditions resulting emergency admission in patients with abdominal pain. Furthermore, we are interested in how many patients are discharged with "non-specific abdominal pain" but later readmitted and diagnosed with a specific diagnosis.18 Years and Over
Antibody Treatment for Advanced Celiac Disease
Background: - Celiac disease is a condition where the immune system attacks the cells of the small intestine. The intestine becomes inflamed and cannot digest food properly. The disease most often causes a reaction to foods that contain gluten. Most people can treat celiac disease with a gluten-free diet. However, some people have digestion problems even on a gluten-free diet. Researchers want to try a new antibody therapy for celiac disease. The treatment may block the immune reaction that causes the disease. They will test this antibody in people who have celiac disease that has not responded to a gluten-free diet. Objectives: ...18 Years and Over
A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled, Crossover Trial to Evaluate Safety and Efficacy of AGY in Celiac Disease
To assess the efficacy and safety of AGY vs placebo when administered to individuals age 10 to 65 years with medically proven CD and on a gluten free diet10 Years - 65 Years
Assessment of Adherence to Gluten Free Diet in Children and Adolescents by Detection of Gluten in Faecal Samples.
To assess the adherence to gluten free diet by measuring faecal and urinary gluten immunogenic peptides (GIP). This will provide an objective measure for adherence.2 Years - 17 Years
Assessment of Immune Activation and Tolerance in Celiac Disease
The primary purpose of this study is to characterize changes in gluten-specific T cells and pathology in the small intestine with specific focus on biomarkers likely to change with therapeutic celiac disease (CeD) treatment.18 Years - 75 Years
Assessment of the Effect of Gluten Free Toothpaste on the Ulcerative Events in Children With Celiac Disease
Celiac disease (CD) is the most common genetically based food intolerance in the world, with a prevalence among approximately 1% of the general population (Guandalini & Assiri, 2014). CD is a frequent disorder among Egyptian children, both in the general population and in at-risk groups(Abu-Zekry et al., 2008). It is estimated that the incidence of CD is 3 to13 cases per1000, with a higher prevalence among first-degree relatives of patients with CD.Lifelong adherence to a strict gluten free diet (GFD) remains the only available treatment for patients with CD and typically results in a complete return to health. Nevertheless, gluten is not...6 Years - 15 Years
Assess the Gluten Degradation Activity of PvP001 and PvP002 in Healthy Adult Volunteers
This study has two parts. Each part of the study begins with a Screening Period of up to 4 weeks to allow for completion of screening procedures and subject scheduling. Each subject will be screened by means of medical history, medication review, Gastrointestinal Symptoms Questionnaire (GSQ), physical examination, vital signs, weight, height, laboratory tests, and ECG.18 Years - 59 Years
A Study of the Safety, Efficacy and Tolerability of Nexvax-2 in Patients With Celiac Disease (CeD)
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study in human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DQ 2.5+ adults with celiac disease (CeD).18 Years - 70 Years
A Study to Evaluate Gluten Challenge on Immune Responses in Subjects With Celiac Disease
This is a model development, open label, no therapeutic treatment, three sequential group, short term-gluten challenge study in subjects with celiac disease. Immune responses are evaluated following gluten challenge. Approximately fifteen subjects with celiac disease will be enrolled in up to three sequential groups (5 subjects per group).18 Years - 65 Years
