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

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    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 or 3 month (8-12 weeks) period depending on the Direct-Acting Antiviral (DAA) prescribed. Homeless adults assigned to the CHW/RN HCV treatment group will receive culturally-sensitive education, case management, and daily DOT delivery of DAA 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 or 12 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 or 3) and SVR12 Cure (month 5 or 6). Secondary outcomes are improved mental health status, decrease in substance use, and improved access to health care, and shelter stability at month 5 or 6.

  • 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.

  • Prevention of Transmission of Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) From HCV-Viremic Organ Donor

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This trial will be done in participants who undergo transplantation of heart, kidney or lung at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and receive a hepatitis C infected donor organ. In this trial, the plan is to start hepatitis C treatment just before transplant surgery and treat for a short one-week course to see if hepatitis C infection can be prevented in the transplant recipient. The plan is to perform this trial in 10 participants and if successful, the next step is to try to make it standard of care as prevention of infection is better than treating hepatitis C after discharge from transplant surgery (which is usually a 12 week standard treatment).

  • 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

    This is a Phase 2/3, open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the pharmacokinetics, efficacy,and safety of glecaprevir (GLE)/pibrentasvir (PIB) for 8, 12, or 16 weeks in Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1-6 (GT1 - GT6)-infected pediatric participants ≥ 3 to < 18 years of age, with or without compensated cirrhosis, with or without human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) coinfection, who were either treatment-naïve (TN), treatment-experienced (TE) with pegylated interferon (pegIFN) with or without ribavirin (RBV), or TE with sofosbuvir (SOF) + RBV with or without pegIFN. The study was divided into 2 parts, according to the formulation of GLE/PIB administered. Part 1 of the study enrolled HCV GT1 - GT6 infected adolescent participants into the ≥ 12 to < 18 years old age group who were willing to swallow the adult formulation of GLE/PIB (Cohort 1). Part 2 of the study enrolled HCV GT1 - GT6 infected pediatric participants divided into the ≥ 9 to < 12 (Cohort 2), ≥ 6 to < 9 (Cohort 3), and ≥ 3 to < 6 (Cohort 4) years old age groups, who received the pediatric formulation of GLE + PIB. Interim data are presented for all participants in Parts 1 and 2 who completed post-treatment Week 12 or prematurely discontinued from the study.

  • 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.

  • Rapid HCV Treatment Access for Persons Who Use Drugs

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study is being done to compare two strategies to deliver HCV treatment to persons with hepatitis C virus (HCV) who also use drugs and are participating in an outpatient opioid treatment program (OTP). Participants will be randomized into one of two treatment groups: 1. Test and treat plus peer-mentors: This treatment group will be offered 8 weeks of glecaprevir/pibrentasvir (an FDA approved HCV treatment) within days of HCV diagnosis at the OTP. Participants in this group will receive treatment adherence support from a peer-mentor who is someone who has been cured of HCV infection. 2. Standard of care HCV treatment referral: This treatment group will be referred to an offsite HCV treatment location. This is the usual care for anyone who tests positive for HCV at the OTP who is not participating in this study.

  • Study to Evaluate Adverse Events and Change in Disease Activity in Adult and Adolescent Participants With Acute Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Infection on Treatment With Oral Tablets of Glecaprevir (GLE)/Pibrentasvir (PIB)

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    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.

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

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    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.
