COVID-19 clinical trials at UCSF

33 in progress, 18 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Study of APL-9 in Adults With Mild to Moderate ARDS Due to COVID-19

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of APL-9 in adults with mild to moderate ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome) caused by COVID-19 who are hospitalized and require supplemental oxygen therapy with or without mechanical ventilation. It is thought that COVID-19 activates the complement system, part of the immune system that responds to infection or tissue damage, and increases inflammation in the lungs. APL-9 has been designed to inhibit or block activation of part of the complement pathway, and potentially reduce inflammation in the lungs. Part 1 of the study is open-label to evaluate safety; all participants will receive APL-9 plus standard of care. Part 2 of the study is double-blind, randomized; participants will receive either APL-9 or the vehicle-control plus standard of care.

  • ACTIV-2: A Study for Outpatients With COVID-19

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Drug studies often look at the effect one or two drugs have on a medical condition, and involve one company. There is currently an urgent need for one study to efficiently test multiple drugs from more than one company, in people who have tested positive for COVID-19 but who do not currently need hospitalization. This could help prevent disease progression to more serious symptoms and complications, and spread of COVID-19 in the community. This study looks at the safety and effectiveness of different drugs in treating COVID-19 in outpatients. Participants in the study will be treated with either a study drug or with placebo and will have 28 days of intensive follow-up following study drug administration, followed by limited follow-up through 24 weeks. Study visits may be required after week 24 depending on the study agent.

  • Adaptive COVID-19 Treatment Trial 4 (ACTT-4)

    open to eligible people ages 18-99

    ACTT-4 will evaluate the combination of baricitinib and remdesivir compared to dexamethasone and remdesivir. Subjects will be assessed daily while hospitalized. If the subjects are discharged from the hospital, they will have a study visit at Days 15, 22, and 29. For discharged subjects, it is preferred that the Day 15 and 29 visits are in person to obtain safety laboratory tests, oropharyngeal (OP) swabs, plasma (Day 29), and serum for secondary research as well as clinical outcome data. However, if infection control or other restrictions limit the ability of the subject to return to the clinic, these visits may be conducted by phone, and only clinical data will be obtained. The Day 22 visit does not have laboratory tests or collection of samples and is conducted by phone. The primary objective is to evaluate the clinical efficacy of baricitinib + remdesivir versus dexamethasone + remdesivir as assessed by the mechanical ventilation free survival by Day 29.

  • ACTIV-5 / Big Effect Trial (BET-A) for the Treatment of COVID-19

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is a platform trial to conduct a series of randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials using common assessments and endpoints in hospitalized adults diagnosed with COVID-19. BET is a proof-of-concept study with the intent of identifying promising treatments to enter a more definitive study. The study will be conducted in up to 40 sites throughout the US. The study will compare different investigational therapeutic agents to a common control arm and determine which have relatively large effects. In order to maintain the double blind, each intervention will have a matched placebo. However, the control arm will be shared between interventions and may include participants receiving the matched placebo for a different intervention. The goal is not to determine clear statistical significance for an intervention, but rather to determine which products have clinical data suggestive of efficacy and should be moved quickly into larger studies. Estimates produced from BET will provide an improved basis for designing the larger trial, in terms of sample size and endpoint selection. Products with little indication of efficacy will be dropped on the basis of interim evaluations. In addition, some interventions may be discontinued on the basis of interim futility or efficacy analyses. One or more interventions may be started at any time. The number of interventions enrolling are programmatic decisions and will be based on the number of sites and the pace of enrollment. At the time of enrollment, subjects will be randomized to receive any one of the active arms they are eligible for or placebo. Approximately 200 (100 treatment and 100 shared placebo) subjects will be assigned to each arm entering the platform and a given site will generally have no more than 3 interventions at once. The BET-A stage will evaluate the combination of remdesivir with risankizumab vs remdesivir with a risankizumab placebo. The primary objective is to evaluate the clinical efficacy of different investigational therapeutics relative to the control arm in adults hospitalized with COVID-19 according to clinical status (8-point ordinal scale) at Day 8.

  • Improving Health Equity for COVID-19 Vaccination for At-risk Populations Using Online Social Networks

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Social technologies for health have already become essential means for providing underserved populations greater social connectedness and increased access to novel health information. However, these technologies have also had negative unintended consequences. The resulting digital divide in social technology takes many forms - from explicit racism that excludes African American and Latinx populations from the resources enjoyed by White and Asian members of online communities, to self-segregation for the purposes of identity preservation and community-building that unintentionally results in limited informational diversity in underserved communities. The result is an often unnoticed, but highly consequential compounding of inequities. This research seeks to use an online social network approach to address these challenges, in which the investigators demonstrate how reducing the online levels of network centralization and network homophily among African American community members directly increases their productive engagement with health-promoting information.
