Thrombosis clinical trials at UC Health
3 research studies open to new patients

  • A Study of the Safety and Pharmacokinetics of Apixaban Versus Vitamin K Antagonist (VKA) or Low Molecular Weight Heparin (LMWH) in Pediatric Subjects With Congenital or Acquired Heart Disease Requiring Anticoagulation

    open to eligible people ages up to 17 years

    To investigate the safety and pharmacokinetics of apixaban in children with congenital or acquired heart disease who have a need for anticoagulation.

  • Pharmacokinetic, Pharmacodynamic, Safety, and Efficacy Study of Rivaroxaban for Thromboprophylaxis in Pediatric Participants 2 to 8 Years of Age After the Fontan Procedure

    open to eligible people ages 2-8

    The Purpose of this study is to characterize the single and multiple-dose pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/ PD) profiles after oral rivaroxaban therapy administered to pediatric participants 2 to 8 years of age with single ventricle physiology who have completed the Fontan procedure within 4 months prior to enrollment (Part A) and to evaluate the safety and efficacy of rivaroxaban, administered twice daily (exposure matched to rivaroxaban 10 milligram [mg] once daily in adults) compared to acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), given once daily (approximately 5 milligram per kilogram [mg/kg]) for thromboprophylaxis in pediatric participants 2 to 8 years of age with single ventricle physiology who have completed the Fontan procedure within 4 months prior to enrollment.

  • Pharmacokinetics of Understudied Drugs Administered to Children Per Standard of Care

    open to eligible people ages up to 21 years

    Understudied drugs will be administered to children per standard of care as prescribed by their treating caregiver and only biological sample collection during the time of drug administration will be involved. A total of approximately 7000 children aged <21 years who are receiving these drugs for standard of care will be enrolled and will be followed for up a maximum of 90 days. The goal of this study is to characterize the pharmacokinetics of understudied drugs for which specific dosing recommendations and safety data are lacking. The prescribing of drugs to children will not be part of this protocol. Taking advantage of procedures done as part of routine medical care (i.e. blood draws) this study will serve as a tool to better understand drug exposure in children receiving these drugs per standard of care. The data collected through this initiative will also provide valuable pharmacokinetic and dosing information of drugs in different pediatric age groups as well as special pediatric populations (i.e. obese).
