Clinical Trials

Many of the advanced medical treatment options available today are in part the result of clinical trials. Clinical trials offered at Baton Rouge General provide patients in our community access to leading-edge treatments close to home. Through our hospital’s dedication to clinical research and affiliations with Tulane University School of Medicine as well as national organizations, we are able to offer our community opportunities to participate in clinical trials for new, state-of-the-art treatments.

Featured Clinical Trials

Do You Have Cold Agglutinin Disease (CAD)

CADENCE Clinical Trial

Cold agglutinin disease (CAD) is a rare type of autoimmune hemolytic anemia in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys its own red blood cells. The aim of this registry is to collect data to better understand patient and clinical characteristics, disease progression, complications, treatment impact, and patient-reported outcomes. This registry will also improve the understanding of the natural history of CAD and will help raise awareness of CAD and its treatment.

Growing Your Family

LIPP Clinical Trial

If you’re a mom planning to have another baby, researchers would like to evaluate if lifestyle changes prior to your next pregnancy can help improve the health of your baby.

To qualify for the LIPP research study, participants aged 18 to 40 should be planning to have a baby in the next 24 months, using contraception in between pregnancies. They must have previously given birth to a full-term baby, not be a smoker, and not be diagnosed with diabetes.

How Do Hormones Change After Having Your Ovaries Removed?

RESUME Clinical Trial

If you’re planning to have your ovaries removed (technically called an “oophorectomy”), this study may be a good fit for you. Estrogen, a hormone produced by the ovaries, significantly decreases during menopause, possibly leading to changes in metabolism.

Pennington Biomedical Research Center’s RESUME research study will evaluate the hormonal changes that occur after the surgery and its effect on the body.

To qualify for this research study, participants should:

  • Be female, 18 to 50 years of age
  • Be planning to have an oophorectomy surgery
