Melanoma Clinical Trials

A listing of Melanoma medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.

RESULTS

Found (290) clinical trials

The purpose of the study is to develop new tests to predict the outcome of immunotherapy. There are up to 2 study visits. There may be the opportunity to participate in additional visits in the future. Each visit will last 30 to 50 minutes. There will be urine collection, survey, ...

Phase N/A

Collecting Tissue Samples From Patients With Melanocytic Nevi or Pigmented Lesions

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Obtain tissue from benign melanocytic nevi and LCMN for experimental study. - Refine culture and immortalization methods for melanocytes derived from melanocytic nevi that permits in vitro expansion of these cells for functional study. - Correlate clinical and dermoscopic observations of primary melanoma with histopathology to establish ...

Phase N/A

Lymphodepletion Plus Adoptive Cell Transfer With or Without Dendritic Cell Immunization in Patients With Metastatic Melanoma

Leptomeningeal Disease: (Cohort D): Study Visits: You are expected to stay in the Houston area for at least 21 days in order to take part in this study. During this study, you will have the following tests and procedures: - You will have an MRI of the complete spine and ...

Phase

Family Study of Melanoma in Italy

To date 557 subjects, including cases of melanoma and unaffected relatives, have been recruited in the family study of melanoma at the Bufalini Hospital, Cesena, Italy, University ofl'Aquila, L'Aquila, Italy, and the Istituto Valenciano de Oncologia, Valencia, Spain. Clinical characteristics of melanoma in the families studied were similar to those ...

Phase N/A

Cytogenetic Study of Ocular Melanoma

The Jules Stein Eye Institute Ocular Melanoma Research Group is conducting cytogenetic studies of choroidal melanoma to improve the screening of biopsy samples of choroidal melanoma through cytogenetic analysis. Our goal is to identify molecular probes that specifically target regions of chromosomes that undergo changes characteristic of metastatic choroidal melanoma.

Phase N/A

Optical Coherence Tomography of Retinal Abnormalities Associated With Choroidal Nevus Choroidal Melanoma and Choroidal Melanoma Treated With Iodine-125 Brachytherapy

During regularly scheduled appointments, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is performed on consented subjects. The OCT is a new type of camera that takes very detailed pictures inside of the eye and deeper into eye tissues. Optical Coherence Tomography imaging of intraocular tumors may lead to improved diagnosis and monitoring of ...

Phase N/A

Characterization of the Melanoma-Specific Immune Response

The aim of the study is to in-vitro characterize and expand T cells specific for melanoma-derived antigens. Peripheral blood with be collected from 20 volunteers with biopsy proven melanoma and 10 age matched controls. Blood will be collected prior to the initiation of chemotherapy. There will be no more than ...

Phase

Investigate the Diagnostic Value and Possibilities of OCT in Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer.

Optimal management of skin malignancies relies on early and accurate diagnosis. The reference standard in skin cancer is biopsy and histopathological assessment from a clinical suspicious skin lesion. The clinical diagnosis of skin cancer has sensitivity ranging from 50% to 90 % and specificity around 70% to 80% depending on ...

Phase

Melanoma Inhibitory Activity (MIA): A Serological Marker for Metastatic Uveal Melanoma

Serum is taken from each melanoma patient at every follow up after signed concent. With ELISA the marker MIA is evaluated. An increase of MIA serum level will lead to search for metastasis by oncologists.

Phase N/A

Study of Families With Melanoma

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine what lifestyle factors and which genes govern relapse from melanoma. Secondary - Compare sun exposure and genes that cause melanoma in patients with melanoma vs healthy participants. - Assess how unusual moles relate to sun exposure and genes that cause melanoma. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, ...
