  • 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.

  • A Registry for Adolescent and Pediatric Participants Who Received a Gilead Hepatitis C Virus Direct Acting Antiviral (DAA) in Gilead-Sponsored Chronic Hepatitis C Infection Trials

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This Registry will enroll adolescent and pediatric participants who received at least one Gilead Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) direct acting antiviral (DAA) while participating in a Gilead-sponsored chronic hepatitis C clinical trial. The primary objective of this Registry is to determine the long-term safety of anti-HCV regimens in the pediatric population. Secondary objectives of this Registry are to determine whether subsequent detection of HCV RNA in participants who relapse following sustained virologic response (SVR) represents the re-emergence of pre-existing virus, the development of resistance mutations, or whether it is due to re-infection, and to characterize resistance mutations and the persistence of resistance mutations in pediatric participants who did not achieve SVR. Once enrolled, participants will be followed for up to 5 years.

  • A Study to Evaluate the Pharmacokinetics, Safety, and Efficacy of Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir in Pediatric Subjects With Genotypes 1-6 Chronic Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Infection

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    An open-label study to assess the pharmacokinetics (PK), safety, and efficacy of glecaprevir (GLE)/pibrentasvir (PIB) in Hepatitis C virus (HCV)-infected pediatric participants divided into 4 age groups: 3 to < 6, 6 to < 9, 9 to < 12, and 12 to < 18 years of age. Within each age group, some participants will be enrolled for intensive pharmacokinetics (IPK) to characterize the PK of a particular age group and the remainder of participants will be enrolled for the evaluation of safety and efficacy of each age group. Intensive PK sampling is designed to allow for dose adjustment, based on available PK and clinical data to achieve therapeutic exposures that have been safe and efficacious in adults. Part 1 of the study will enroll participants into Cohort 1; Cohort 1 will include participants who are in 12 to < 18 years of age who can swallow the adult formulation of GLE/PIB. Part 2 of the study will enroll participants in the remaining age groups into Cohorts 2, 3, and 4; participants in these cohorts will receive the pediatric formulation of GLE/PIB. All participants will receive GLE/PIB for 8, 12, or 16 weeks depending on their HCV genotype, cirrhosis, and prior treatment experience status.

  • Development of a Community-based HCV Treatment Completion Intervention Among HCV Positive Homeless Adults

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This randomized controlled trial (RCT) will test the efficacy of a Community Health Worker/Registered Nurse (CHW-RN) HCV intervention for homeless individuals, many who are also drug users. The intervention will be designed during Phase I of the proposal using an iterative process between a Community Advisory Board (CAB) and focus groups. The CHW/RN intervention will occur over a 2 month (8 weeks) period. Homeless adults assigned to the CHW/RN HCV treatment group will receive culturally-sensitive education, case management, and daily DOT delivery of Mavyret™ (pibrentasvir/glecaprevir) by an RN-guided CHW. The CHW will run a brief (20 min) weekly 1:1 education and 20 min case management session over the 8 weeks and will deliver all components of the program (which will be developed and refined during Phase I). The CHW-RN HCV intervention will be compared to a clinic-based standard of care group (cbSOC). Primary outcomes are the completion of the Direct-Acting Agent (DAA) treatment (month 2) and SVR12 Cure (month 5). Secondary outcomes are improved mental health status, decrease in substance use, and improved access to health care, and shelter stability at month 5.

  • Insulin Resistance in HCV Infection

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The study hypothesis is that the means by which HCV induces glucose intolerance is through impairment of B-cell function and compensatory hyperinsulinemia in predisposed Latinos with insulin resistance and that HCV eradication improves these abnormalities. It is also hypothesized that moderate alcohol consumption impact insulin sensitivity and secretion with Latinos with or without HCV infection.

  • Monitoring SOF/VEL in Treatment Naïve, HCV Participants With Active Infection

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study is being done to see if a minimal monitoring approach is effective and safe when providing HCV treatment. The minimal monitoring approach will require fewer study visits and lab tests with no medication refills. This study is trying to see whether taking an HCV treatment with fewer clinic visits and laboratory tests can cure just as many people as the standard approach that uses more visits and laboratory tests. The results of this study will be compared with what has been observed in other studies using a standard approach.

  • Study of Oral Treatments for Hepatitis C

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Phase 1 of this study will compare the effectiveness of 3 approved HCV treatment regimens to learn whether they work equally well under real-world conditions. Phase 2 of this study will begin early 2017 and will compare the effectiveness of 2 FDA approved HCV treatments. Patients receiving HCV therapy in community and academic clinics will be offered the opportunity to consent to be randomly assigned to one of three regimens and then observed for outcomes. Once randomized, all medical care, laboratory testing, and any disease or side effect management will be assumed by usual care conditions, and patient-reported outcomes will be collected outside clinic in keeping with pragmatic design principles.

  • The No One Waits Study: Acceptability and Feasibility of Community-based Point-of-diagnosis HCV Treatment Study

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy for hepatitis C virus (HCV) offers a cure to those with chronic HCV infection. For marginalized communities, linkage to care services often aren't enough to overcome barriers to accessing the medical system. For difficult to link populations, offering treatment at the same non-clinical community space may improve uptake and reduce loss-to-follow-up. The purpose of this 2 year study is to assess the feasibility, acceptability and effectiveness of accelerated initiation of commercially available DAA therapy targeting socially marginalized communities (e.g., medically underserved, homeless, people actively injecting drugs). The study will be carried out at two community sites that perform HCV testing: (a) fixed community site and (b) community mobile site via clinical research van. Participants (n=150) who test anti-HCV positive and HCV RNA positive (chronic infection) are invited to enroll into the no one waits (NOW) Study and begin HCV treatment at point of diagnosis. All evaluation, medication dissemination, and follow-up care will take place at the project site. The investigators will estimate the effect of on-site point-of-diagnosis (POD) treatment on (1) time from HCV testing to treatment initiation, (2) completing treatment, and (3) attaining (sustained virologic response) SVR-12; overall and by study site. A secondary product will be a lesson learned guide of recommendations for implementing a POD on-site test and treat program for dissemination beyond San Francisco.
