Clinically Isolated Syndrome clinical trials at UCSF

4 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • B Cell Levels In Infants Of Lactating Women With CIS Or MS Receiving Ocrelizumab

    open to eligible females ages 18-40

    This study will evaluate the pharmacokinetics of ocrelizumab in the breastmilk of lactating women with clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) or multiple sclerosis (MS) [in line with the locally approved indications] treated with ocrelizumab, by assessing the concentration of ocrelizumab in mature breastmilk, as well as the corresponding exposure and pharmacodynamic effects (blood B cell levels) in the infants.

  • B Cell Levels In Infants Potentially Exposed To Ocrelizumab During Pregnancy

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study will evaluate the potential placental transfer of ocrelizumab in women with clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) or multiple sclerosis (MS) [in line with the locally approved indications] whose last dose of ocrelizumab was administered any time from 6 months before the last menstrual period (LMP) through to the first trimester (up to gestational week 13) of pregnancy, and the corresponding pharmacodynamic effects (B cell levels) in the infant.

  • Assessing Changes in Multi-parametric MRI in Patients With Acute Demyelinating Lesions Taking Clemastine Fumarate as a Myelin Repair Therapy

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The clinical trial is intended to assess for clinical evidence of Clemastine Fumarate as a myelin repair therapy in patients with acute inflammatory injury-causing demyelination as measured by multi-parametric MRI assessments. No reparative therapies exist for the treatment of acute demyelinating lesions. Clemastine fumarate was identified along with a series of other antimuscarinic medications as a potential remyelinating agent using the micropillar screen (BIMA) developed at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Following in vivo validation, an FDA IND exemption was granted to investigate clemastine for the treatment of multiple sclerosis in the context of chronic optic neuropathy. That pilot study was recently completed and is the first randomized control trial documenting efficacy for a putative remyelinating agent for the treatment of MS. The preselected primary efficacy endpoint (visual evoked potential) was met and a strong trend to benefit was seen for the principal secondary endpoint assessing function (low contrast visual acuity). That trial number was 13-11577. This study seeks to follow up on that study and examine clemastine fumarate's protective and reparative effects in the context of acute demyelinating brain lesions as imaged by multi-parametric MRI assessments. The investigators will be assessing the effects of clemastine fumarate as a remyelinating therapy and assessing its effect on MRI metrics of lesions found in patients with a confirmed diagnosis of acute inflammatory injury-causing demyelination. In addition to using conventional multi-parametric MRI assessments, this study will also evaluate a new MRI technique called Ultrashort Echo Time (UTE) MRI to assess the effects of clemastine fumarate as a remyelinating therapy of acute lesions found in patients with a confirmed diagnosis of acute inflammatory injury-causing demyelination and compare it to the other assessments.

  • Ocrelizumab on Cerebrospinal Fluid Biomarkers at Multiple Sclerosis Onset

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Newly diagnosed relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS) and high risk clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) patients will be treated with ocrelizumab at disease onset to see if treatment favorably alters CSF markers of chronic inflammation.
