Gonorrhea clinical trials at University of California Health

5 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Antibacterial Mouthwash for Pharyngeal Gonorrhea Prevention

    open to eligible males ages 18-45

    This study aims to determine acceptability and preliminary efficacy of daily use of an antibacterial mouthwash as compared to a placebo mouthwash in reducing the incidence of pharyngeal gonorrhea among a cohort of HIV-positive and high risk HIV-negative men. Investigators plan to test the following hypotheses: 1. Participants will maintain a high level of adherence and satisfaction with daily mouthwash use. Furthermore, the investigators hypothesize that barriers to adherence will include structural factors such as unstable housing and individual level factors such as substance use. 2. Participants receiving the antibacterial mouthwash will have a lower incidence of pharyngeal gonorrhea as compared to participants receiving the placebo mouthwash. Furthermore, the investigators hypothesize that these reductions will remain even after adjusting for other factors such as HIV-status and substance use.

  • Inflammation in Methamphetamine and STIs (IMSTI)

    open to eligible males ages 18-45

    This clinical trial aims to investigate the effects of a decline in methamphetamine use on rectal inflammatory cytokine levels, substance use contexts, and HIV/STI risk behavior. This clinical trial also seeks to evaluate joint effects of methamphetamine use and rectal gonorrhea/chlamydia infection on rectal inflammatory cytokine levels. The proposed trial will consist of 40 HIV uninfected MSM, half with rectal gonorrhea/chlamydia infection at enrollment (n=20), with methamphetamine use disorder that will receive contingency management for methamphetamine reduction. Following baseline measurement, participants will be observed over the course of 8 weeks, where participants will complete behavioral surveys, provide urine for drug testing, and rectal samples for measurement of rectal inflammatory cytokine levels.

  • Antenatal Chlamydia Trachomatis and Neisseria Gonorrhoeae Testing to Prevent Adverse Neonatal Consequences

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    To assess the effectiveness of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) testing and treatment during pregnancy to reduce adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes compared to the standard of care (treatment based on symptoms and signs).

  • Evaluation of Doxycycline Post-exposure Prophylaxis to Reduce Sexually Transmitted Infections in PrEP Users and HIV-infected Men Who Have Sex With Men

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to understand if taking an antibiotic called doxycycline by mouth as soon as possible after sexual contact without a condom can reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis. The study will also look at the safety of doxycycline PEP and the impact that PEP may have on the bacteria that cause STIs as well as on bacteria that normally live on the body. While doxycycline is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), taking doxycycline immediately after sexual contact to prevent infection is investigational and is not approved by the FDA for this use. Participants will take part in the study for 1 year.

  • Evaluation of EVO100 for Prevention of Urogenital Chlamydia Trachomatis and Neisseria Gonorrhoeae Infection

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study will evaluate whether EVO100 vaginal gel prevents the sexual transmission of CT and GC infection
