  • 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

    open to eligible people ages 3-17

    An open-label study to assess the pharmacokinetics (PK), safety, and efficacy of glecaprevir (GLE)/pibrentasvir (PIB) in 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 hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype, cirrhosis, and prior treatment experience status.

  • 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.

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

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
