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 2 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 IS medications. All study participants will have negative serologic or suboptimal responses (defined as a Roche Elecsys® Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S result ≤200 U/mL) or a low immune response (defined as a Roche Elecsys® Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S result >200 U/ml and ≤2500 U/mL) to their previous doses of 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)

  • Open-label Study to Determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose of DSG3-CAART in Mucosal-dominant PV Patients (mPV)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Mucosal-dominant pemphigus vulgaris (mPV) is a B-cell mediated autoimmune disorder in which painful blisters are formed on the mucosal membrane, including the mouth, nose, throat, eyelids, anus, and genitals. This phase 1 study is being conducted to find the maximum tolerated dose and optimal fractionated infusion schedule of an investigational cell therapy, DSG3-CAART, that can be given to patients with mPV who are inadequately managed by standard therapies. DSG3-CAART may potentially lead to complete and durable remission of disease.

  • 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.
