Sexually Transmitted Infections clinical trials at University of California Health

8 in progress, 4 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Addressing Heavy Alcohol Use Consumption With Kudzu

    open to eligible people ages 18-70

    Drinking multiple alcoholic drinks on a single occasion (binge drinking), has many negative health risks but interventions to address this behavior remain limited. This double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial will test whether kudzu, an herbal supplement, can reduce heavy alcohol use and alcohol-associated sexual behaviors among sexually-active, binge-drinking individuals at high risk for HIV infection.

  • Comparing Mobile Health Strategies to Improve Pre-exposure Prophylaxis Use (PrEP) for HIV Prevention

    open to eligible people ages 15 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of two mobile health technologies (text messaging or a mobile app) designed to help people take HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) as directed by the clinic. PrEP is the use of a daily anti-HIV medications by HIV-negative people to help prevent HIV infection.

  • Inflammation in Methamphetamine and STIs (IMSTI)

    open to eligible males ages 18-45

    This clinical trial aims to investigate the effects of a decline in methamphetamine use on rectal inflammatory cytokine levels, substance use contexts, and HIV/STI risk behavior. This clinical trial also seeks to evaluate joint effects of methamphetamine use and rectal gonorrhea/chlamydia infection on rectal inflammatory cytokine levels. The proposed trial will consist of 40 HIV uninfected MSM, half with rectal gonorrhea/chlamydia infection at enrollment (n=20), with methamphetamine use disorder that will receive contingency management for methamphetamine reduction. Following baseline measurement, participants will be observed over the course of 8 weeks, where participants will complete behavioral surveys, provide urine for drug testing, and rectal samples for measurement of rectal inflammatory cytokine levels.

  • uTECH: Machine Learning for HIV Prevention Among Substance Using GBMSM

    open to eligible males ages 18 years and up

    This project seeks to develop and test the acceptability, appropriateness and feasibility of uTECH, a novel social media "big data" machine learning intervention for HIV-negative substance-using sexual and gender minority people who have sex with men that aims to reduce HIV transmission risk by integrating biomedical and behavioral risk reduction strategies, including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention and medication assisted treatment (MAT) for substance use harm reduction

  • Evaluation of Doxycycline Post-exposure Prophylaxis to Reduce Sexually Transmitted Infections in PrEP Users and HIV-infected Men Who Have Sex With Men

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to understand if taking an antibiotic called doxycycline by mouth as soon as possible after sexual contact without a condom can reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis. The study will also look at the safety of doxycycline PEP and the impact that PEP may have on the bacteria that cause STIs as well as on bacteria that normally live on the body. While doxycycline is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), taking doxycycline immediately after sexual contact to prevent infection is investigational and is not approved by the FDA for this use. Participants will take part in the study for 1 year.

  • Evaluation of EVO100 for Prevention of Urogenital Chlamydia Trachomatis and Neisseria Gonorrhoeae Infection

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study will evaluate whether EVO100 vaginal gel prevents the sexual transmission of CT and GC infection

  • Prevention Support for People Leaving Jail

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study will provide HIV prevention and related support services to men who have sex with men and transgender women who have substance use disorders and are either leaving jail or recently released from jail. The researchers will compare the utilization of HIV prevention and other support services between individuals who receive routine case management provided following enrollment to those who have access to GeoPassport, a global position service (GPS)-based mobile app, incentives, and peer mentor support.

  • Study of the Safety and Efficacy of STI-6643 in Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is a first-in-human, phase 1, open-label, dose-escalation study of STI-6643 administered by intravenous infusion in subjects with a relapsed/refractory advanced solid tumor.
