Venous Thrombosis clinical trials at UC Health
2 research studies open to new patients

  • A Study of the Duration of Therapy for Thrombosis (blood clot inside a blood vessel) in Children

    “This study will help us learn more about the best type of treatment for children with blood clots in their veins (thrombosis).”

    open to eligible people ages up to 20 years

    The Kids-DOTT trial is a randomized controlled clinical trial whose primary objective is to evaluate non-inferiority of shortened-duration (6 weeks) versus conventional-duration (3 months) anticoagulation in children with first-episode acute venous thrombosis. The first stage of the trial has consisted of a pilot/feasibility component, which then continues as the definitively-powered trial.
