  • 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 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.

  • Tenofovir Alafenamide (TAF) in Children and Adolescents With Chronic Hepatitis B Virus Infection

    open to eligible people ages 2-17

    The primary objective of Cohort 1 (adolescents aged 12 to < 18 years, ≥ 35 kg body weight): of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and antiviral activity (HBV DNA < 20 IU/mL) of tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) 25 mg once daily versus placebo through Week 24 in treatment-naive and treatment-experienced adolescents with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). Cohort 2 (children 2 to < 12 years of age) will consist of 2 parts: Part A and Part B. Intensive pharmacokinetic (PK) data will be collected from all participants in Part A to confirm the dose of TAF in each dose group and the remaining participants will be enrolled into Part B once dose confirmation is achieved. The primary objectives of Part A are to evaluate the steady-state PK of TAF and tenofovir (TFV) and confirm the dose of TAF given once daily in children (with CHB. The primary objective of Part B is to evaluate the safety, efficacy and tolerability of TAF at Week 24 and the antiviral activity (HBV DNA < 20 IU/mL) of TAF at Week 24 in children with CHB.

  • 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.

  • Combination Therapy of Pegylated Interferon Alfa-2a and Tenofovir Versus Tenofovir Monotherapy in Chronic Hepatitis B

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This clinical trial compares the efficacy of peginterferon plus tenofovir for 24 weeks followed by monotherapy with tenofovir for a further 3.5 years to the efficacy of tenofovir alone given for 4 years in patients with chronic hepatitis B. The primary measure of outcome will be HBsAg loss in serum at 48 weeks after stopping all antiviral therapy (sustained off-treatment response).

  • 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.

  • The Hepatitis B e-Antigen Negative Disease - Directly Offered Study of Treatment Withdrawal in Patients With e-Antigen Negative Chronic HBV Infection (BeNEG-DO).

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The investigators' research is aimed at developing more effective, finite approaches for managing individual patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). This prospective clinical and basic scientific study exclusively focuses on patients with the early antigen negative form of disease, which in developed countries is treated indefinitely with antiviral drugs. The investigators' study "BeNEG-DO," directly offers patients who are already taking standard oral Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) antiviral therapy for at least 192 weeks the option to stop or continue treatment. Drawing on data from pilot studies, including the investigators' own University of California, San Francisco and Sutter Institutional Review Board-approved study, the investigators will examine a finite HBV treatment strategy on clinical outcome and safety. In conjunction, the investigators will study immunologic mechanisms and gene expression profiles that correlate with and predict the post-treatment clinical course. The BeNEG-DO study could seriously question, and potentially change, the current treatment paradigm for millions of patients with CHB and also lead to new disease-terminating antiviral therapeutics.
