Deglutition Disorders clinical trials at UC Davis

3 research studies open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Study of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) to Improve Swallow Function After Total Laryngectomy

    “A Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine can improve swallow function if you've had a total Laryngectomy.”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Investigator initiated prospective study to determine whether use of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) can improve the swallow function in patients who underwent total laryngectomy and are experiencing difficulty swallowing

  • A Study of Negative Pressure Suction to Reduce Aspiration (inhaling food into lungs) Oropharyngeal Dysphagia (swallowing disorder)

    “An ear nose and throat study for people with stomach tubes”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is an investigator initiated prospective study to determine whether the use of a negative pressure suction in the hypopharynx will reduce the amount of aspiration during Video Fluoroscopic Swallowing Exam (VFSE) among patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia.

  • Stem Cell Clinical Trial for Swallowing Disorders (REVIVE)

    “Contribute to discoveries that may improve healthcare for you, your family, and your community by volunteering for research!”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The primary objective of this double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter clinical trial is to evaluate the safety of AMDC-GIR during the 24 months following 2 consecutive treatments of tongue dysphagia in male and female patients who have undergone surgery and/or chemo- and/or radiotherapy for squamous cell cancer of the oropharynx.
