  • A Study of the Safety of Experimental CC-90001 in Subjects With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (decreased lung function)

    “The purpose of this study is to test an experimental drug called CC-90001 in patients with Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).”

    open to eligible people ages 40 years and up

    This is a Phase 2, multicenter, multinational, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), quality of life and exploratory pharmacodynamics (PD) of two treatment doses of CC-90001, 200 mg and 400 mg, compared with placebo, when delivered once daily per os (PO) in subjects with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). This study is designed to assess response to treatment by using measures of lung function, disease progression, fibrosis on radiography, and patient-reported outcomes. It will also assess dose response.

  • An Observational Study to Assess the Prevalence and Outcomes of Primary Pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis in Persons Aged > / = 14 Years Presenting With Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) in Endemic Areas (SAnds-PPC)

    open to eligible people ages 14-99

    This is an observational study in 1,000 individuals aged 14 years or older, diagnosed with Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) who meet all eligibility criteria in Coccidioides endemic regions. This study is designed to provide data on the prevalence of primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis among persons presenting with CAP in endemic regions. Among individuals diagnosed with primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis, we aim to describe the clinical course, predictors of the clinical course and compare the response to prescribed antifungal therapy versus no antifungal therapy. The hypothesis for patients with primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis is that early treatment with antifungal therapy is effective in reducing the frequency, severity and associated adverse outcomes of infection with recently acquired coccidioidomycosis pneumonia. The study will be divided into Step 1 and Step 2. Step 1 will identify which subjects have primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis based on the case definition for the protocol and Step 2 will follow subjects who meet the case definition and will observe their clinical management and clinical outcomes. Subjects will enroll in Step 1 within 28 days of symptom onset. In Step 1, blood work for serologic determination of Coccidioides infection will be drawn at the time of enrollment (Day 1), and again 21 days later if a positive result is not reported at Day 1. Subjects with a diagnosis of primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis confirmed by positive serologic testing during Step 1 will enter Step 2 within 14 days of a positive test result; subjects with a negative serology at Day 1 and Day 22 will not be followed further. Subjects referred to the study after a diagnosis of primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis confirmed by positive serologic testing will also be allowed to enter Step 2 directly within 14 days of a positive test result and within 7 weeks of symptom onset, as long as they meet study enrollment criteria. The primary objective is to assess the prevalence of primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis (PPC) in subjects with community acquired pneumonia (CAP) in coccidioidomycosis endemic areas.

  • Cell therapy to Treat Patients with COVID-19

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study is a Phase 1 / 2 trial to determine the safety and efficacy of CYNK-001, an immunotherapy containing Natural Killer (NK) cells derived from human placental CD34+ cells and culture-expanded, in patients with moderate COVID-19 disease.

  • Efficacy and Safety Study of IV Ravulizumab in Patients With COVID-19 Severe Pneumonia

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of ravulizumab administered in adult patients with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) severe pneumonia, acute lung injury, or acute respiratory distress syndrome. Patients will be randomly assigned to receive ravulizumab in addition to best supportive care (BSC) (2/3 of the patients) or BSC alone (1/3 of the patients). Best supportive care will consist of medical treatment and/or medical interventions per routine hospital practice.

  • Enhancing Electronic Health Systems to Decrease the Burden of Colon Cancer, Lung Cancer, Obesity, Vaccine-Preventable Illness, and LivER Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 50-80

    The purpose of CLOVER is to utilize Epic Healthy Planet to increase adherence to United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations in adults age 50 and older.

  • Performance Evaluation of the VIDAS TB-IGRA Assay.

    open to eligible people ages 2 years and up

    This study will evaluate the performance of the VIDAS® Interferon Gamma (IFN-γ) Release Assay (TB-IGRA) assay, which is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of tuberculosis infection. This study is designed to assess (1) the sensitivity of this assay, (2) its percent agreement with other diagnostic tests, (3) its measurement precision , and (4) any potential interference of the presence of other non-tuberculosis mycobacterial bacterial infections with this assay.

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

    open to eligible people ages up to 20 years

    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.

  • The INSPIRE-ASP PNA Trial

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    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.
