Pemphigus clinical trials at University of California Health

3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • COVID-19 Booster Vaccine in Autoimmune Disease Non-Responders

    open to eligible people ages 5 years and up

    This is a randomized, multi-site, adaptive, open-label clinical trial comparing the immune response to different additional doses of COVID-19 vaccine in participants with autoimmune disease requiring immunosuppressive medications. All study participants will have negative serologic or sub-optimal responses (defined as a Roche Elecsys® Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S (RBD) result ≤ 200 U/mL) to initial COVID-19 vaccine regimen with Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, or Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. The study will focus on 5 autoimmune diseases in adults: - Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) - Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) - Multiple Sclerosis (MS) - Systemic Sclerosis (SSc), and - Pemphigus. This study will focus on 4 autoimmune diseases in pediatric participants: - Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) - Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) - Pediatric-Onset Multiple Sclerosis (POMS) - Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM)

  • Dexamethasone Solution and Dexamethasone in Mucolox™

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Topical steroid therapy is considered the first line of treatment for Oral Inflammatory Ulcerative Diseases with current treatment regimens requiring multiple application or rinses daily. Using Mucolox™ as a vehicle to deliver topical dexamethasone to the oral mucosa has the potential to effectively prolong contact time between the medication. The primary objective of this study is to determine the clinical efficacy and tolerability of compound dexamethasone at 0.5 mg/5 mL in Mucolox™ for the treatment of Oral Inflammatory Ulcerative Diseases as measured by a reduction in oral symptoms between patients treated with compounded dexamethasone 0.5mg/5ml solution in Mucolox™ (group A) and patients treated with topical commercial dexamethasone 0.5mg/5ml solution only (group B). and mucosa, leading to improved clinical outcomes due to the need for less frequent application.

  • Polyclonal Regulatory T Cells (PolyTregs) for Pemphigus

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    T cells, a type of white blood cell called a lymphocyte, play an important role in the immune system. One subtype, the regulatory T cell (Treg) helps to regulate the immune system and may provide protection against the development of autoimmune disease. The hope is that these naturally occurring Treg cells can be utilized for the treatment of autoimmune disease and potentially replace the use of chronic immunosuppressive therapies that are associated with multiple side effects. There has been a small study showing safe administration of Tregs with decreased disease activity in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes. Tregs are being studied in lupus, cancer and organ transplantation. This phase I trial will be conducted as an open-label, dose-escalation, multicenter trial in adult participants with active pemphigus.The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effect of Treg therapy in participants who have skin (cutaneous) involvement due to pemphigus.
