Parathyroid Diseases clinical trials at University of California Health
2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
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.
A Trial Investigating the Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of TransCon PTH Administered Daily in Adults With Hypoparathyroidism
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.
