Influenza clinical trials at University of California Health
5 in progress, 2 open to eligible people
“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.
at UC Davis
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.
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
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.
Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only
Pregnant women who get influenza are more likely than non-pregnant women to have serious complications, including hospitalizations, death, preterm labor and premature birth. Pertussis can cause hospitalization or death for newborns. However, influenza and Tdap vaccination rates for pregnant women are low nationally. In this study, the investigators will perform a randomized controlled trial aimed at practice change in obstetricians' offices, with an overall goal of reducing morbidity and mortality from influenza and pertussis infections.

This trial is taking place in Los Angeles, CA at clinics within the UCLA Health System. The study design is a 2x2 nested factorial design. Patients will be randomized into 1) receiving text based reminder messages, 2) portal-based reminder messages or 3) the control group. Patients randomized to the intervention arms will receive reminders if they are due for influenza vaccine. Nested within the reminder arms (text or portal), we will have 2 additional components for which patients will be randomized separately: - A direct scheduling link within the reminder letter enabling the patient to schedule an influenza vaccine only visit (direct scheduling link vs. no direct scheduling link). - A pre-appointment reminder, encouraging patients to ask for their influenza vaccine at their upcoming appointment (pre-appointment reminder encouraging influenza vaccination vs. standard pre-appointment reminder not mentioning influenza vaccination) Despite the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendation in 2010 that all people above 6 months of age should receive an annual flu vaccine, vaccination rates remain low: at 6m-4.9 yrs. (70%), 5-17.9 yrs. (56%), 18-64.9 yrs. (38%), and >65 yrs. (63%). The investigators will assess the effectiveness of MyChart R/R messages and text R/R messages as compared to the standard of care control (no messages).
