Influenza clinical trials at UC Health
7 in progress, 4 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Patient Portal Reminder/Recall for Influenza Vaccination in a Health System- RCT 2

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This trial is taking place in Los Angeles, CA among patients from primary care practices within the UCLA Health System. 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. The investigators will assess the effectiveness of message-framing (gain-framed, loss-framed messages, no messages), as well as the effectiveness of a pre-commitment prompt (pre-commitment prompt, no prompt) asking about a patient's intention to get the influenza vaccination, using a 3 x 2 factorial design.

  • 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.
