Clinical Trials & Studies

Accelerating Progress Against Cancer and Other Life-Threatening Diseases

Clinical trials and volunteer studies are a vital and critical component of disease research. Through these trials Fred Hutch researchers make new discoveries that lead to new ways to prevent, detect, diagnose or treat many diseases. Many of today's most effective treatments are based on the results of past trials and studies.

Clinical Trials

Each year, hundreds of trials are conducted by scientists at Fred Hutch, the University of Washington, and Seattle Children’s for a number of diseases. Patients enrolled on a clinical trial could benefit from the latest treatments available and will receive care through the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), our clinical care partner.

Volunteer Studies

Volunteer participation in clinical trials and observational studies is vital to disease research. No matter how promising a new drug, vaccine or procedure looks when tested in the laboratory or on animals, it cannot be approved for general use in humans until it has been carefully evaluated through several phases of clinical study that include volunteer participants. Observational studies are also crucial to determining cause and effect in human health, including how behavior, lifestyle, genetic factors and other traits may help prevent disease or contribute to disease risk. Some of our studies seek healthy participants for prevention research that may involve dietary changes, vitamin supplementation, increased physical activity or adoption of other health-promoting behaviors.

This study is a Phase 1 study to determine the highest tolerated dose of an investigational cell therapy called DVX201 in patients hospitalized with COVID-19. DVX201 is an allogeneic NK (natural killer) cell therapy. NK cells are a normal part of your immune system that have the ability to identify and kill cells in the body that are infected by viruses such as COVID-19.

Lung Cancer

The Air Study

Fred Hutch is recruiting individuals to participate in a study to learn about how to reduce personal exposure to air pollution, a known risk factor for lung cancer. We hope to use the information that we gather to develop larger studies to increase knowledge and awareness of the harmful health effects of air pollution.

Eligibility Criteria
Malaria Prevention

Malaria Studies

We are working to develop vaccines and medicines to prevent and limit malaria. To do this, we need healthy volunteers to take part in our clinical research studies. Read the general criteria and use our screening tool to see if you qualify for a study.
