Cystic Fibrosis clinical trials at UC Health
12 in progress, 7 open to new patients

  • A Study of Experimental AeroVanc for MRSA Infection (a bacteria resistant to antibiotics) in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis

    “If you have cystic fibrosis and a chronic methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) lung infection, help us test a new treatment.”

    open to eligible people ages 6 years and up

    This study is a multi-center, randomized phase III study to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of AeroVanc in persistent MRSA in patients with Cystic Fibrosis.

  • A Study of Experimental INS1007 For Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis (damage to airways, making it difficult to clear mucus)

    open to eligible people ages 18-85

    The purpose of the study is to evaluate if INS1007 can reduce pulmonary exacerbations over a 24-week treatment period in patients with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis.

  • A Study of Experimental VX-445 Combination Therapy For Cystic Fibrosis With F508del Genetic Mutation

    open to eligible people ages 12 years and up

    This study will evaluate the efficacy of VX-445 in triple combination (TC) with tezacaftor (TEZ) and ivacaftor (IVA) in subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF) who are heterozygous for F508del and a minimal function mutation (F/MF subjects).

  • Best course of antibiotic treatment for patients with Cystic Fibrosis pulmonary exacerbation

    “Does 10 days of antibiotics work as well as 14? Help us determine what is the optimal treatment for patients with CF pulmonary exacerbation”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Cystic fibrosis (CF), a life-shortening genetic disease, is marked by acute episodes during which symptoms of lung infection increase and lung function decreases. These pulmonary exacerbations are treated with varying antibiotics for varying time periods based on needs determined by individual patients, their families, and the health care providers. Cystic fibrosis pulmonary guidelines for the treatment of pulmonary exacerbation published by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) in 2009 provided recommendations for treatment and also identified key questions for which additional studies were needed. A strong desire among clinicians to reduce treatment durations (and reduce cost, inconvenience, and potential toxicities) is in conflict with belief that patients not responding robustly to treatment might benefit from extending treatment. This randomized, controlled, open-label study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of differing durations of IV treatment, given in the hospital or at home for a pulmonary exacerbation in adult patients with CF.

  • CF And Effects of Drugs Mixed Ex Vivo With Sputum for Mucolytic Treatment

    open to eligible people ages 18-65

    The investigators will collect samples of sputum from healthy volunteers and patients with cystic fibrosis for the purpose of: a) purifying airway mucins for plate-based binding studies and; b) assessment of the effects of carbohydrates on the rheologic properties of the sputum. This study has two hypotheses: 1. Lectins from Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Aspergillus fumigatus bind to airway mucins in a fucose-dependent manner, and this binding can be inhibited by fucosyl glycomimetic compounds. 2. Fucosyl glycomimetics will compete with Pseudomonas aeruginosa lectin (PA-IIL) and Aspergillus fumigatus lectin (AFL) and disrupt lectin-driven mucin cross-linking in CF sputum.

  • CHaractErizing CFTR Modulated Changes in Sweat Chloride and Their Association With Clinical Outcomes

    open to eligible people ages 4 months and up

    This is a multicenter, cross-sectional, cohort study which will collect contemporary SC values from approximately 1000 CF patients prescribed and currently receiving commercially approved CFTR modulator therapies.

    at UCSD

  • Long-term Study in US Cystic Fibrosis Patients Receiving Digestive Enzyme Supplements to Assess Narrowing of the Large Intestin...

    open to eligible people ages up to 99 years

    This is a long-term study in cystic fibrosis patients who are participating in the Cystic Fibrosis Patient Registry to assess the occurrence and risk factors for a rare bowel disorder called fibrosing colonopathy (narrowing of the large intestine). Patients will be followed at their regular clinical care visits over a 10-year period and approached if they develop symptoms of fibrosing colonopathy for collection and use of further detailed information.

  • Aztreonam Lysine for Inhalation in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Airway Infection

    Sorry, not accepting new patients

    The primary objective of this program is to provide expanded access to aztreonam lysine for inhalation (AZLI) 75 mg prior to its commercial availability to patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and chronic P. aeruginosa airway infection who have limited treatment options and are at risk for disease progression.

    at UCSF

  • Safety and Efficacy of 2 Treatment Regimens of Aztreonam for Inhalation Solution in Children With Cystic Fibrosis and New Onset Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Infection

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a 14-day course versus a 28-day course of aztreonam for inhalation solution (AZLI) in participants with new onset Pseudomonas aeruginosa respiratory tract infection.

    at UCSF

  • Study of LAU-7b in the Treatment of Cystic Fibrosis in Adults

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    An International Phase II, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of LAU-7b administered once-daily for 6 months for the treatment of CF.

    at UC Davis

  • Testing the Effect of Adding Chronic Oral Azithromycin to Inhaled Tobramycin in People With CF

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is a study to examine the effect of combining chronic oral azithromycin with inhaled tobramycin in adolescent and adult subjects with cystic fibrosis who are chronically infected with P. aeruginosa.

    at UCSD

  • The EPIC Observational Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to better define risk factors preceding first isolation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) from respiratory cultures in cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease and to better define clinical outcomes associated with acquisition of Pa. This study will also collect and bank DNA samples for current and future studies designed to enhance the understanding of the pathogenesis of CF.
