Prosthetic Joint Infection clinical trials at University of California Health
2 research studies open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 22-84
Study Type: A multi-site, parallel group, randomized trial. Study Objectives: The objective is to evaluate safety and determine preliminary efficacy of VT-X7. Efficacy is evaluated as superiority of the Experimental Arm in a composite endpoint of Overall Success at 90 days, consisting of a revision prosthesis implanted at Stage 2, patient survival, absence of reoperation and absence of PJI. Secondary objectives are to evaluate superiority at 365 days in a composite endpoint of Overall Success, and in separate secondary endpoints for quality of life (QoL) and patient survival. The exploratory objective is to compare Experimental and Control Arms in exploratory endpoints. Follow-up: Patients will be evaluated at 90-, 180-, and 365-day follow-up visits.

TRL1068 is expected to eliminate the pathogen-protecting biofilm in the prosthetic joint and surrounding tissue, thus making these pathogens substantially more susceptible to established antibiotic treatment regimens. This initial study is designed to assess overall safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of TRL1068. The overall goal of the development program is to demonstrate that TRL1068 can facilitate effectiveness of a single stage joint replacement or preservation of the original infected prosthetic joint in a substantial proportion of patients with PJI.
