Influenza clinical trials at UC Health

8 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • 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.

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

    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.

  • Increasing Influenza and Tdap Vaccination of Pregnant Women

    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.

  • Patient Portal Reminder/Recall for Influenza Vaccination in a Health System- UCLA Portal R/R Influenza RCT 3

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This trial is taking place in Los Angeles, CA among patients from primary care practices within the UCLA Health System. The study design is a 2x2x2 factorial design, nested in a parallel 2-arm trial. The parallel arms are control v. reminder letter (reminder messages sent via the patient portal, reminding participants of an overdue influenza vaccine) Nested within the reminder letter arm, we will have 3 additional components: - 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-commitment prompt (pre-commitment prompt vs. no prompt) asking about a patient's intention to get the influenza vaccination - 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)

  • Pediatric Second Influenza Dose Portal Reminder Recall

    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. The study design is a parallel 2-arm trial. The parallel arms are 1) a reminder letter for the second dose of influenza vaccine (reminder messages sent via the patient portal) with a direct appointment scheduling link included in the reminder and 2) a reminder letter for the second dose of influenza vaccine, but no direct appointment scheduling link included.

  • 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?”

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    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.

  • Study to Assess the Efficacy of Baloxavir Marboxil Versus Placebo to Reduce Onward Transmission of Influenza A or B in Households

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Otherwise healthy index patients (IP) are randomized to either baloxavir marboxil or placebo if their influenza symptoms onset was within 48 hours of screening. Their households are enrolled within 24 hours of randomization if at least 2 household contacts (HHC) have not received influenza vaccine within 6 months of screening and if all HHC screen negative for influenza infection. The main endpoints are assessed based on multiple respiratory swabs, obtained from both IP and HHC up to 9 (+/-1) days post IP randomization, and through the assessment of symptoms.
