Retinitis Pigmentosa clinical trials at UC Health
7 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

  • Advancing Understanding of Transportation Options

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This Stage II randomized, controlled, longitudinal trial seeks to assess the acceptability, feasibility, and effects of a driving decision aid use among geriatric patients and providers. This multi-site trial will (1) test the driving decision aid (DDA) in improving decision making and quality (knowledge, decision conflict, values concordance and behavior intent); and (2) determine its effects on specific subpopulations of older drivers (stratified for cognitive function, decisional capacity, and attitudinally readiness for a mobility transition). The overarching hypotheses are that the DDA will help older adults make high-quality decisions, which will mitigate the negative psychosocial impacts of driving reduction, and that optimal DDA use will target certain populations and settings.

  • Retinal Imaging in Patients With Inherited Retinal Degenerations

    open to eligible people ages 13 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to determine whether the structure and function of the human retina can be studied with high resolution in patients with inherited retinal degenerations using the Adaptive Optics Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (AOSLO).

  • Clinical Trial of Autologous Intravitreal Bone-marrow CD34+ Stem Cells for Retinopathy

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This pilot study is to determine whether it would be safe and feasible to inject CD34+ stem cells from bone marrow into the eye as treatment for patients who are irreversibly blind from various retinal conditions.

  • Rate of Progression in EYS Related Retinal Degeneration

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The overall goal of this project funded by the Foundation Fighting Blindness is to characterize the natural history of disease progression in patients with EYS mutations in order to accelerate the development of outcome measures for clinical trials.

  • Rate of Progression in USH2A-related Retinal Degeneration

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The overall goal of this project funded by the Foundation Fighting Blindness is to characterize the natural history of disease progression in patients with USH2A related retinal degeneration associated with congenital hearing loss (Usher syndrome type 2a) or non-syndromic retinitis pigmentosa (RP39).

  • Retinal Imaging of Subjects Implanted With Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor (CNTF)-Releasing Encapsulated Cell Implant for Early-stage Retinitis Pigmentosa

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This clinical trial is a single-site, 30 patient study for participants who have early stage retinitis pigmentosa, or Usher syndrome (type 2 or 3). Funding Source - FDA OOPD and Foundation Fighting Blindness.

  • RST-001 Phase I/II Trial for Advanced Retinitis Pigmentosa

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Currently enrolling a total of 12 patients for Phase 2a of the study: 6 patients must have VA of no-better-than hand motion in the study eye, and 6 patients must have VA in the study eye to range from no-worse-than count fingers to 20/200 vision.
