Pain clinical trials at UC Cancer
2 research studies open to eligible people
Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Safety Profile of Understudied Drugs Administered to Children Per Standard of Care (POPS)
open to eligible people ages up to 20 years
The study investigators are interested in learning more about how drugs, that are given to children by their health care provider, act in the bodies of children and young adults in hopes to find the most safe and effective dose for children. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the PK of understudied drugs currently being administered to children per SOC as prescribed by their treating provider.
open to eligible people ages 21 years and up
Despite improved assessment and pharmacologic management, cancer pain is still undertreated. Using non-pharmacologic treatments alongside medications may better address patients' total pain experience by relieving physical and psychological symptoms and reducing the adverse effects of drugs. However, our knowledge of the benefits of multidisciplinary approaches in real-world hospital settings is limited. Patients want to know "How can I get the most pain relief with the fewest side effects?" This study proposal is designed to address this question by testing how combining pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic (acupuncture and pain counseling) treatments can: (1) maximize effectiveness, (2) minimize harms, and (3) align with patients' preferences.
