Arthritis clinical trials at UCSF
6 in progress, 4 open to eligible people

  • Multimodal Sleep Pathway for Shoulder Arthroplasty

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of the study is to investigate the efficacy of sleep medicine in the recovery of orthopaedic shoulder arthroplasty patients. The investigators hypothesize that a multimodal sleep pathway including non-pharmacological sleep hygiene interventions and the use of zolpidem can improve patient sleep, pain control, and subsequent recovery after undergoing total shoulder arthroplasty.

  • Strategy to Prevent the Onset of Clinically-Apparent Rheumatoid Arthritis

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to determine if hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is safe and effective for the prevention of future onset of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in individuals who have elevations of an autoantibody, anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP3). The following recruitment strategies will be employed towards identifying healthy subjects with elevated anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP3) levels: -Pre-screening: - first degree relatives of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA); - subjects at health-fairs; and - identification of subjects with elevated anti-CCP3 levels in the absence of inflammatory arthritis in rheumatology clinics.

  • Treatments Against RA and Effect on FDG-PET/CT

    open to eligible people ages 45 years and up

    In a randomized controlled clinical trial, investigators will compare the effects on [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) from two treatment regimens in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients deemed methotrexate inadequate responders (MTX-IRs). Two common RA treatments will be compared: triple therapy (sulfasalazine, methotrexate, and hydroxychloroquine) versus tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor (etanercept or adalimumab, plus background methotrexate for all subjects and hydroxychloroquine for subjects who were taking this at screening).

  • Zr-89 Cimzia PET Imaging Rheumatoid Arthritis

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a single center exploratory imaging study investigating the initial application of 89Zr-DFO-CZP PET in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Patients with active symptoms of RA or signs on physical exam will be invited to participate for PET imaging.
