Pneumonia clinical trials at University of California Health

12 in progress, 9 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Blinded Efficacy and Safety Study of CAL02 IV Plus SOC in Subjects With Severe Community-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia

    at UCSF

  • Trimodulin (BT588) in Subjects With Severe Community-acquired Pneumonia (sCAP)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The main objective of the trial is to assess the efficacy and safety of trimodulin as adjunctive treatment to standard of care (SoC) compared to placebo plus SoC in adult hospitalized subjects with sCAP on invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV). Other objectives are to determine detailed pharmacokinetic (PK) properties of trimodulin in a PK substudy and to determine its pharmacodynamic (PD) properties.

  • FAPI PET for Lung Fibrosis

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a prospective exploratory biodistribution study in patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD). The purpose of this research study is to determine where and to which degree the FAPI tracer (68Ga-FAPI-46) accumulates in normal and fibrotic lung tissues of patients with interstitial lung disease. The study will include patients with interstitial lung disease who have or will initiate a new ILD medication OR will undergo tissue biopsy or surgery of the lung. The study will include 30 patients, the upper limit for PET imaging studies conducted under the Radioactive Drug Research Committee (RDRC) purview. Participants will be injected with up to 7 mCi of 68-GaFAPi and will undergo one PET/CT scan and one High Resolution CT of the lungs. The study is sponsored by Ahmanson Translational Theranostic Division at UCLA.

  • Reparixin add-on Therapy to Std Care to Limit Progression in Pts With COVID19 & Other Community Acquired Pneumonia

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Primary objective: - To evaluate the efficacy of oral reparixin versus standard care alone in limiting disease progression in adult patients hospitalised for infectious pneumonia acquired in the community (CAP), including COVID-19. Secondary objectives: - To determine the effect of reparixin on several disease severity/progression measures including recovery, ventilatory free days and mortality. Safety objectives: - To evaluate the safety of oral reparixin versus placebo in the specific clinical setting.

  • Simultaneously Implementing Pathways for Improving Asthma, Pneumonia, and Bronchiolitis Care for Hospitalized Children

    open to eligible people ages up to 17 years

    This study's objective is to identify and test pragmatic and sustainable strategies for implementing a multi-condition clinical pathway intervention for children hospitalized with asthma, pneumonia, or bronchiolitis in community hospitals. The hypothesis is that the multi-condition pathway intervention will be associated with significantly greater increases in clinicians' adoption of evidence-based practices compared to control. The study is a pragmatic, cluster-randomized trial in US community hospitals. The primary outcome will be adoption of evidence-based practices over a sustained period of 2 years. Secondary outcomes include length of hospital stay, intensive care unit transfer, and hospital readmission/emergency department revisit.

  • Rezafungin Compared to Standard Antimicrobial Regimen for Prevention of Invasive Fungal Diseases in Adults Undergoing Allogeneic Blood and Marrow Transplantation

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this pivotal study is to determine if intravenous Rezafungin is efficacious and safe in the prevention of invasive fungal diseases when compared to the standard antimicrobial regimen.

  • Prognostic Transcriptomic Signature for Chronic Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis

    open to eligible people ages 18-85

    Up to 135 patients with hypersensitivity pneumonitis will be enrolled at 7 clinical centers across the United States. Patients will be followed for 24 months to determine if biomarkers in the blood can predict disease progression.

  • Pharmacodynamics, and Safety Profile of Understudied Drugs Administered to Children Per Standard of Care (POPS)

    open to eligible people ages 0-20

    The study investigators are interested in learning more about how drugs, that are given to children by their health care provider, act in the bodies of children and young adults in hopes to find the most safe and effective dose for children. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the PK of understudied drugs currently being administered to children per SOC as prescribed by their treating provider.

  • TRANSPIRE: Lung Injury in a Longitudinal Cohort of Pediatric HSCT Patients

    open to eligible people ages up to 24 years

    Hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) is an effective but toxic therapy and pulmonary morbidity affects as many as 25% of children receiving transplant. Early pulmonary injury includes diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH), thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) interstitial pneumonitis (IPS) and infection, while later, bronchiolitis obliterans is a complication of chronic GVHD associated with severe morbidity and mortality. Improved diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary complications are urgently needed as survival after HSCT improves, and as HSCT is increasingly used for non-malignant disorders such as sickle cell disease. Currently, there are large and important gaps in the investigator's knowledge regarding incidence, etiology and optimal treatment of pulmonary complications. Moreover, young children unable to perform spirometry are often diagnosed late, and strategies for monitoring therapeutic response are limited. This is a prospective multi-institutional cohort study in pediatric patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHSCT). Assembly of a large prospective uniformly screened cohort of children receiving HSCT, together with collection of biological samples, will be an effective strategy to identify mechanisms of lung injury, test novel diagnostic strategies for earlier diagnosis, and novel treatments to reduce morbidity and mortality from lung injury after transplant.

  • Learn About the Amount of the Study Medicine (Sisunatovir) in Blood and Its Safety in Infants and Children With Pneumonia Caused by RSV

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The purpose of the study is to learn about the safety and amount of sisunatovir in the blood of infants and children up to age 60 months. These children have Lower Respiratory Tract Infection (LRTI) caused by Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). LRTI is the infection to the lower airways such as lungs. This study will help inform the amount of sisunatovir to be used in future studies of sisunatovir in children. This study is seeking for participants who: - Are 1 day to less than or equal to 60 months of age - weigh more than or equal to 2.5 kilograms to less than or equal to 23 kilograms. - Have been tested to have RSV by medical tests. - show signs of LRTI. All participants in the study will receive many amounts of sisunatovir or placebo. Placebo is a pill that does not have any medicine in it. Up to 7 visits are required for the study. Some of these visits include checking participants health over the phone and/or a visit at home. The study will compare the experiences of infants and children receiving sisunatovir to identify the amount of sisunatovir to be used in future studies in infants and children.

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The INSPIRE-ASP PNA trial is a cluster-randomized controlled trial of HCA hospitals comparing routine empiric antibiotic stewardship practices with real-time precision medicine computerized physician order entry smart prompts providing the probability that a non-critically ill adult admitted with PNA is infected with a resistant pathogen. Note: that enrolled "subjects" represents 59 individual HCA hospitals that have been randomized.

  • VQm PHM on Pulmonary Health Parameters for ICU

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The goal of this observational study is to compare pulmonary health parameter measurements from the VQm PHM™ to existing clinical measurements. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Confirm the performance of non-invasive pulmonary health parameter shunt fraction value found on the VQm PHM™ when compared to available reference measurements. - Confirm the performance of non-invasive pulmonary health parameter pulmonary blood flow, functional residual capacity and physiological dead space found on the VQm PHM™ when compared to available reference measurements.
