Hepatitis C clinical trials at University of California Health

9 in progress, 4 open to eligible people

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

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    This is a double-blind, phase 2 study to evaluate safety and efficacy of rosuvastatin in comparison to placebo after 2 years in patients with compensated cirrhosis.

  • Partner Navigation Intervention for Hepatitis C Treatment Among Young People Who Inject Drugs

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The Partner Navigation Intervention Study is a randomized controlled study (RCT) to assess the efficacy and mechanism of action of the first behavioral intervention to increase hepatitis C (HCV) treatment initiation among adult people who inject drugs (PWID).

  • Rapid HCV Treatment Access for Persons Who Use Drugs

    open to eligible people ages 18-70

    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.

  • 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.

  • INTEGRA: A Vanguard Study of Health Service Delivery in a Mobile Health Delivery Unit

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of using a mobile health delivery unit ("mobile unit") to deliver "one stop" integrated health services - particularly medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) and medication for HIV treatment and prevention - to people who inject drugs (PWID) with opioid use disorder (OUD) to improve uptake and use of MOUD, and uptake and use of antiretroviral therapy (ART) or pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).

  • 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.

  • Prophylaxis With Direct-acting Antivirals for Kidney Transplantation From HCV-Infected Donors to Uninfected Recipients

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study is being done to find out the best time to start medication for Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) in HCV-negative recipients of HCV-positive (HCV D+/R-) kidney transplants. Participants will be randomized into one of two groups: Arm 1 - Prophylaxis: This group will start the HCV medication before transplant and will take a shorter course of HCV medication for 2 weeks. Arm 2 - Transmit and Treat: This group will start the HCV medication after transplant and will take the full course (12 weeks) of HCV medication.

  • 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)

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

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    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.

  • 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.
