Clinical Trials

  • The UPA Breast Study will investigate a medication called ulipristal acetate (UPA), which is currently used as an emergency contraceptive and as a treatment for fibroids. The study is designed to investigate 1) whether taking UPA daily can decrease breast cell proliferation compared to traditional combined oral contraceptive pills; and 2) whether MRI can replace biopsies in future research studies investigating breast proliferation, as substituting biopsies for MRI would make future studies easier for women to take part in. Study participation will last 4-5 months.
  • This study will only include women who have platinum sensitive relapsed epithelial ovarian cancer meaning your ovarian cancer did not return for at least 6 months after your first treatment with chemotherapy containing platinum (carboplatin or cisplatin). This research is being done to find out if carboplatin plus paclitaxel or carboplatin plus Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin (PLD), chemotherapies (anticancer drugs) that are used to treat ovarian cancer, work better alone or when given with a study drug called farletuzumab.
  • A single arm, open-label, Phase IIb study to assess the efficacy and safety of the combination of cediranib and olaparib tablets in women with recurrent platinum resistant epithelial ovarian cancer, including Fallopian tube and/or primary peritoneal cancer who do not carry a deleterious or suspected deleterious germline BRCA mutation.
  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate how accurately cells that are collected from the fallopian tube can be categorized as benign or malignant. The MAKO 7 will be used to collect cell samples from the fallopian tube. You are being asked to participate in the study because you are a woman who is undergoing a surgery to remove your fallopian tubes and/or ovaries due to a suspicious pelvic mass. The MAKO 7 device is designed to collect cells from the fallopian tube. The MAKO 7 contains a very small balloon, which enters the fallopian tube.
  • This is a study of patients delivering at Columbia University Medical Center-Allen Hospital. The investigators will compare the change in maternal hemoglobin from postpartum day 1 to day 2 and also try to find out if there is a correlation between estimated blood loss and measured blood loss.
  • Columbia University is conducting a contraceptive clinical trial looking at two intrauterine devices, one of which is investigational. Pre-menopausal women ages 16-40 who are generally healthy, sexually active, at risk for pregnancy, and are not at risk for sexually transmitted infections may qualify.

  • HE4 (Human Epididymis Protein 4) is a biomarker expressed in the normal lining of the female genital tract and breast. We are doing this research study to if HE4 is an indicator of treatment response during initial therapy for Primary Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube and Primary Peritoneal Cancers. For this we will collect blood at specific intervals. You are being asked to take part in this study because you have been diagnosed with Primary Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube or Primary Peritoneal Cancer and will be receiving initial treatment for your disease.
  • The LIGHT study is a clinical research study for women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug in women with this type of cancer, using genetic information to evaluate tumors.
  • Tired of having to remember to take your birth control? If you are a woman between the ages of 18 and 35, are pre-menopausal, sexually active and do NOT wish to become pregnant, you are invited to see if you may qualify for a research study. The purpose of this research study is to test the effectiveness of an investigational contraceptive vaginal ring. If you qualify, you will receive investigational study medication, study-related medical exams, and laboratory services at no charge. You may also be reimbursed for time, travel, and other expenses.
