Parathyroid Diseases clinical trials at University of California Health
3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 18-80
This study is investigating the safety and efficacy of eneboparatide (AZP-3601) in patients with chronic hypoparathyroidism (cHP). During the first 24 weeks of the trial, participants will be randomized to receive eneboparatide or placebo. Study treatment is blinded: patients and doctors will not know which group each patient has been randomized to. All patients will start with a fixed dose of study treatment (eneboparatide or placebo), administered subcutaneously with a pre-filled pen. Study treatment will be individually titrated. After completion of the first 24 weeks, patients will be treated in the open label extension part of the study for 28 weeks. During this phase, all patients (including patients that were in the placebo group) will receive eneboparatide.
Near Infrared Autofluorescence (NIRAF) Detection for Identifying Parathyroid Glands During Parathyroidectomy
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The goal of this study is to assess whether using PTeye (AiBiomed, Santa Barbara, CA) - a NIRAF detection modality - can improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare associated costs after parathyroid surgeries. By being able to quickly and definitively locate parathyroid glands while in the operating room, the duration of surgical procedure could be further reduced. In addition, the number of frozen section biopsy and associated costs can be minimized. Furthermore, repeat surgeries as a result of missing a diseased parathyroid gland at the time of the initial parathyroidectomy for hyperparathyroidism could potentially be avoided.
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
During the first 26 weeks of the trial, participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups: one group will receive TransCon PTH and one group will receive placebo. All subjects will start with a fixed dose of study drug and will be individually and progressively titrated to an optimal dose over a 10 week period, followed by an individualized dosing period up to 16 weeks. TransCon PTH or placebo will be administered as a subcutaneous injection using a pre-filled injection pen. Neither trial participants nor their doctors will know who has been assigned to each group. After the 26 weeks, participants will continue in the trial as part of a long-term extension study. During the extension, all participants will receive TransCon PTH, with the dose adjusted to their individual needs. This is a global trial that will be conducted in, but not limited to, the United States, Canada, Germany, and Denmark.
