Thyroid Diseases clinical trials at University of California Health
3 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 18-75
Hypothyroidism, defined by elevated thyrotropin (TSH) levels, is a common endocrine complication of chronic kidney disease that has been associated with impaired quality of life and cardiovascular complications. While levothyroxine is one of the most frequently prescribed medications in chronic kidney disease patients, little is known about its efficacy and safety in this population. This study will investigate 1) whether levothyroxine adequately lowers thyrotropin (TSH) levels to therapeutic target ranges, and 2) if thyroid hormone replacement improves quality of life and cardiovascular markers, without leading to wasting in dialysis patients.

A Phase 2b, Study of Linsitinib in Subjects With Active, Moderate to Severe Thyroid Eye Disease (TED)
Sorry, not currently recruiting here
The overall objective is to study the safety, pharmacokinetics and efficacy of linsitinib (a small molecule IGF-1R inhibitor) administered orally twice daily (BID) vs. placebo, at 24 weeks in the treatment of subjects with active, moderate to severe thyroid eye disease (TED).

Phase 1/2 Study of the Highly-selective RET Inhibitor, Pralsetinib (BLU-667), in Participants With Thyroid Cancer, Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer, and Other Advanced Solid Tumors
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
This is a Phase 1/2, open-label, first-in-human (FIH) study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD), and preliminary antineoplastic activity of pralsetinib (BLU-667) administered orally in participants with medullary thyroid cancer (MTC), RET-altered NSCLC and other RET-altered solid tumors.
