Influenza clinical trials at UC Health
9 in progress, 5 open to eligible people

  • A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Pimodivir in Combination With the Standard-of-Care Treatment in Adolescent, Adult, and Elderly Hospitalized Participants With Influenza A Infection

    open to eligible people ages 13-85

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical and virologic benefit of pimodivir in combination with Standard-of-Care (SOC) treatment compared to placebo in combination with SOC treatment.

  • Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Anti-Influenza Intravenous Hyperimmune Immunoglobulin (IVIG) in Adults Hospitalized With Influenza

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Influenza (the flu) is a common illness that usually occurs in autumn and winter. The flu is usually mild, but can cause serious illness or death. The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of an antibody against the flu (called intravenous hyperimmune immunoglobulin or IVIG) in people who are hospitalized for severe flu.

  • Evaluation of a Medical Test for Management of the Flu in the Emergency Department

    “Knowing whether patients have this infection may help prevent the spread of the virus to other hospitalized patients.”

    open to eligible people ages up to 20 years

    This will be a prospective, patient-oriented, pilot randomized clinical trial to evaluate (in aggregate) both the use of the Roche Cobas Liat Flu/RSV Assay and the use of pharmacist-led education for providers in the interpretation of these test results.

  • Respiratory Virus Hospitalization Study (FLU 003 Plus)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Following the sudden and unexpected emergence of influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 (2009 H1N1) virus, this observational study was initiated to estimate rates of morbidity and mortality and to examine predictors of severity among participants with 2009 H1N1 infection. In 2011, as surveillance indicated that 2009 H1N1 virus was co-circulating with other seasonal influenza A and B viruses worldwide, the protocol was expanded to include other influenza A subtypes and influenza B viruses. The current version of the protocol (released in August 2013) further broadens the scope of this observational study. With the recognition that novel respiratory viruses other than novel influenza A viruses, e.g., Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV), could become prevalent and of major public health importance, the objectives of this protocol have been expanded.

  • Study of high dose/low dose influenza vaccine to effectively stop heart or lung-related problems

    “Does high-dose influenza (“flu”) vaccine safely reduce heart or lung-related problems compared to the standard-dose flu vaccine?”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    INVESTED will test the hypothesis that high dose trivalent influenza vaccine will reduce cardiopulmonary events to a greater extent than standard dose quadrivalent influenza vaccine in high-risk cardiovascular patients with a recent history of myocardial infarction or heart failure. The trial will enroll 9300 participants over one Vanguard (pilot) season and three additional influenza seasons. The primary endpoint will be a composite of all-cause mortality or cardiopulmonary hospitalization.

  • A Pilot Study for Collection of Anti-Influenza A Immune Plasma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Background: - The influenza A virus can cause infections that lead to fever, cough, muscle aches, diarrhea, and headaches, and can even be fatal in some people. Seasonal influenza kills an estimated 36,000 people in the United States each year. In addition, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized for flu-related complications. Influenza A has a substantial health effect on every age group. - Currently, treatments are available for influenza A, but there is concern that the rate of complications or even death from this infection is still high despite treatment, and that over time this virus may become resistant to these treatments. Researchers are interested in developing a possible new treatment that uses antibodies against influenza A virus. Objectives: - To collect plasma (the liquid component of blood containing antibodies) from people who have high levels of antibodies against the influenza A virus because they either have been previously infected with the virus or have been vaccinated against the infection. Eligibility: - Healthy male volunteers between 18 and 60 years of age who are eligible to donate blood. - Individuals must have previously either recovered from influenza infection or have been vaccinated against the infection, and may be subject to other restrictions on participating in National Institutes of Health research studies. Design: - Volunteers will undergo apheresis, an outpatient procedure in which researchers will collect plasma containing antibodies against the influenza virus by drawing blood into a special machine that separates blood cells from the liquid portion under sterile conditions and then returns the blood cells to the donor. - Volunteers will be screened with blood tests to ensure that they are eligible to participate and donate blood. - Volunteers are asked to undergo at least 3 sessions of apheresis; if willing, they can volunteer to participate in up to 20 sessions. - After plasma is collected, it will be tested to ensure that it can be used to safely develop treatments for patients who have influenza A infection.

  • High Dose Flu Vaccine in Treating Children Who Have Undergone Donor Stem Cell Transplant

    Sorry, currently not accepting new patients, but might later

    This phase II randomized trial studies how well high dose flu vaccine works in treating children who have undergone done stem cell transplant. Higher dose flu vaccine may build a better immune response and may provide better protection against the flu than the standard vaccine.

  • STOP PIV - Phase III DAS181 Lower Tract PIV Infection in Immunocompromised Subjects

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study will seek to enroll immunocompromised patients with Lower Tract parainfluenza infection

    at UCLA

  • Study to Assess Efficacy and Safety of Baloxavir Marboxil In Combination With Standard-of-Care Neuraminidase Inhibitor In Hospitalized Participants With Severe Influenza

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of baloxavir marboxil in combination with a standard-of-care (SOC) neuraminidase inhibitor (NAI) (i.e., oseltamivir, zanamivir, or peramivir) compared with a matching placebo in combination with a SOC NAI in hospitalized patients with influenza.
