Sexually Transmitted Infections clinical trials at University of California Health

7 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • 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.

  • Modernizing Perinatal Syphilis Testing

    open to eligible people ages up to 45 years

    Treponema pallidum is a bacterium that causes the disease syphilis. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the testing performance of two diagnostic molecular techniques [quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and transcription-mediated amplification (TMA)] for the detection of Treponema pallidum in maternal and neonatal specimens from participants with the diagnosis of syphilis using the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC's) Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) Treatment Guidelines for adult and congenital syphilis.

  • Heavy Alcohol Use Consumption With Kudzu

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    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.

  • Inflammation in Methamphetamine and STIs (IMSTI)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    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 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.

  • Directly Observed Therapy Study to Interpret Clinical Trials of Doxy-PEP

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Rates of bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are rising globally, demanding innovative interventions beyond the scope of current efforts to prevent STIs. The United States Doxycycline Post-exposure Prophylaxis (DoxyPEP) Study has demonstrated the efficacy of doxycycline post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) among men who have sex with men and transgender women; but puzzlingly, doxycycline PEP was found ineffective in cisgender women in the Kenyan doxycycline Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (dPEP) study, with preliminary data suggesting the low medication adherence may explain the null result. By study end, the investigators will have developed adherence measurement methods for doxycycline in hair, blood, and urine, and will use these techniques to help interpret the Kenyan dPEP study, and to examine the relative performance of these methods within the United States DoxyPEP trial, establishing adherence metrics for current and future rollout studies of doxycycline post-exposure prophylaxis

  • 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.

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

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    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
