Infection clinical trials at UC Health
4 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

  • Pharmacokinetics of Understudied Drugs Administered to Children Per Standard of Care

    open to eligible people ages up to 21 years

    Understudied drugs will be administered to children per standard of care as prescribed by their treating caregiver and only biological sample collection during the time of drug administration will be involved. A total of approximately 7000 children aged <21 years who are receiving these drugs for standard of care will be enrolled and will be followed for up a maximum of 90 days. The goal of this study is to characterize the pharmacokinetics of understudied drugs for which specific dosing recommendations and safety data are lacking. The prescribing of drugs to children will not be part of this protocol. Taking advantage of procedures done as part of routine medical care (i.e. blood draws) this study will serve as a tool to better understand drug exposure in children receiving these drugs per standard of care. The data collected through this initiative will also provide valuable pharmacokinetic and dosing information of drugs in different pediatric age groups as well as special pediatric populations (i.e. obese).

  • Project PROTECT: Protecting Nursing Homes From Infections and Hospitalization

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a cluster-randomized trial of nursing homes to assess whether decolonization with routine chlorhexidine bathing and periodic use of nasal antiseptics can reduce hospitalizations associated with infections, antibiotic utilization, and multi-drug resistant organism (MDRO) prevalence. The comparator arm will be routine bathing care.

  • A Study Comparing Experimental Antibiotic Therapies in Tumor Surgery (PARITY Study)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The Prophylactic Antibiotic Regimens in Tumor Surgery (PARITY) trial is the first ever international multi-center randomized controlled trial in bone cancer surgery. In order to avoid amputation for bone cancer in the leg, complex limb-saving operations are performed. However, infections with devastating complications following surgery are common. Surgeons from across the world will randomize patients to receive either short- or long-duration antibiotic regimens after surgery with the goal of identifying the best regimen to reduce these infections.

  • Microbiota Restoration Therapy for Recurrent Clostridium Difficile Infection (PUNCH CD3-OLS)

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is a prospective, multicenter, open-label Phase 3 study of a microbiota suspension of intestinal microbes. Patients who have had at least one recurrence of CDI after a primary episode and have completed at least one round of standard-of-care oral antibiotic therapy or have had at least two episodes of severe CDI resulting in hospitalization may be eligible for the study. Subjects may receive a second RBX2660 enema if they are deemed treatment failures following the initial enema per the protocol-specified treatment failure definition.
