Hepatitis clinical trials at University of California Health

18 in progress, 10 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir Fixed-dose Combination Treatment for Acute Hepatitis C Virus Infection

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of a fixed dose combination (FDC) of glecaprevir/pibrentasvir (G/P) given for 4 weeks in acute hepatitis C (HCV)-infected participants, with or without HIV-1 coinfection.

  • Mild Hypothermia and Acute Kidney Injury in Liver Transplantation

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Acute kidney injury (AKI), or worsening kidney function, is a common complication after liver transplantation (20-90% in published studies). Patients who experience AKI after liver transplantation have higher mortality, increased graft loss, longer hospital and intensive care unit stays, and more progression to chronic kidney disease compared with those who do not. In this study, half of the participants will have their body temperature cooled to slightly lower than normal (mild hypothermia) for a portion of the liver transplant operation, while the other half will have their body temperature maintained at normal. The study will evaluate if mild hypothermia protects from AKI during liver transplantation.

  • Study of Oral TLR8 Agonist Selgantolimod on HBsAg in Participants With Both Chronic Hepatitis B and HIV

    open to eligible people ages 18-70

    The study aims to assess safety and tolerability of oral toll-like receptor (TLR) 8 agonist Selgantolimod (SLGN) administered for 24 weeks in participants with both CHB and HIV who have been receiving suppressive antiviral therapy for both viruses for ≥5 years and have qHBsAg level >1000 (3 log10) IU/mL at screening. The study will also evaluate if TLR8 stimulation with SLGN will reduce hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) titers in the blood.

  • Study of Tenofovir Alafenamide (TAF) in Children and Teen Participants With Chronic Hepatitis B Virus Infection

    open to eligible people ages 2-17

    The goals of this clinical study are to compare the effectiveness, safety and tolerability of study drug, tenofovir alafenamide (TAF), versus placebo in teens and children with CHB and to learn more about the dosing levels in children.

  • Study of the Medication GLE/PIB in Adult and Adolescent Participants With Acute Hepatitis C Virus Infection

    “Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”

    open to eligible people ages 12 years and up

    Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) infection is a global health problem. HCV mainly affects liver cells and causes the liver to become inflamed and damaged. This study will evaluate how safe and effective glecaprevir/pibrentasvir (GLE/PIB) is in adult and adolescent participants with acute HCV infection. GLE/PIB is an approved drug for the treatment of chronic HCV. Around 283 participants at least 12 years of age with acute HCV Infection will be enrolled in approximately 70 sites worldwide. Participants will receive oral tablets of GLE/PIB once daily (QD) for 8 weeks and will be followed for 12 weeks after the end of treatment. There may be higher treatment burden for participants in this trial compared to their standard of care. Participants will attend regular visits during the study at a hospital or clinic. The effect of the treatment will be checked by medical assessments, blood tests, monitoring for side effects and completing questionnaires.

  • An Observational Study of Patients Undergoing Therapy for Chronic Hepatitis B (HBV) Infection

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The TARGET-HBV study engages an observational research design to conduct a comprehensive review of outcomes for patients with CHB infection. The initial phase of the study that enrolled patients treated with tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) was successfully completed. The current protocol (Amendment 1) describes the second phase of the study that will engage research activities for patients being managed for CHB in usual clinical practice in the US and Canada. The study addresses important clinical questions regarding the management of CHB by collecting and analyzing data from patients at academic and community medical centers. TARGET-HBV creates a robust database of real-world data regarding the natural history, management, and health outcomes related to antiviral treatments used in clinical practice.

  • Comparative and Additive Diagnostic Performance of Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) and Corrected-T1 (cT1) for Fibrosis and Inflammation in Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) Using Histology as Reference

    open to eligible people ages 18-90

    This pilot study will evaluate conventional and investigational MR imaging and spectroscopic sequences and collect data to help plan more definitive future studies.

    at UCSD

  • Impact of DAA Uptake in Controlling HCV Epidemic and Modeling Interventions for HCV Elimination Among HIV-infected Persons in San Diego

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    A retrospective and prospective study among people living with HIV (PLWH) that assesses hepatitis C (HCV) treatment uptake during periods before and after direct acting antivirals (DAA) introduction, and its impact on the HCV epidemic among PLWH.

  • Liver Cirrhosis Network Cohort Study

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Liver Cirrhosis Network (LCN) Cohort Study is an observational study designed to identify risk factors and develop prediction models for risk of decompensation in adults with liver cirrhosis. LCN Cohort Study involves multiple institutions and an anticipated 1200 participants. Enrolled participants will have study visits every 6 months (180 days), with opportunities to complete specific visit components via telehealth or remotely. Visits will include collection of questionnaire data and the in-person visits will include questionnaires, physical exams, imaging, and sample collection.

  • Liver Cirrhosis Network Rosuvastatin Efficacy and Safety for Cirrhosis in the United States

  • Navitoclax and Sorafenib Tosylate in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Solid Tumors

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and the best dose of navitoclax when given together with sorafenib tosylate in treating patients with solid tumors that have returned (relapsed) or do not respond to treatment (refractory). Navitoclax and sorafenib tosylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
