Cystic Fibrosis clinical trials at UCSF

5 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Support Groups for Patients With Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    BronchConnect is a prospective trial to investigate the impact of support groups on health care related quality of life in those with noncystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFBE). It has been well demonstrated that participation in patient support groups improves quality of life in those who suffer from interstitial lung disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, but the impact is largely unknown for those who live with NCFBE, a chronic lung disease with rising prevalence with no targeted FDA-approved therapy. NCFBE causes chronic cough, dyspnea, recurrent infections, and leads to anxiety and uncertainty. This study seeks to evaluate the impact of a virtual patient support group for patients with NCFBE through questionnaires to assess change of quality of life and anxiety, and exacerbation rates through clinical assessment.

  • CF And Effects of Drugs Mixed Ex Vivo With Sputum for Mucolytic Treatment

    open to eligible people ages 18-65

    The investigators will collect samples of sputum from healthy volunteers and patients with cystic fibrosis for the purpose of: a) purifying airway mucins for plate-based binding studies and; b) assessment of the effects of carbohydrates on the rheologic properties of the sputum. This study has two hypotheses: 1. Lectins from Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Aspergillus fumigatus bind to airway mucins in a fucose-dependent manner, and this binding can be inhibited by fucosyl glycomimetic compounds. 2. Fucosyl glycomimetics will compete with Pseudomonas aeruginosa lectin (PA-IIL) and Aspergillus fumigatus lectin (AFL) and disrupt lectin-driven mucin cross-linking in CF sputum.

  • Long-term Safety and Efficacy of VX-121 Combination Therapy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety, tolerability, and efficacy of VX-121/tezacaftor/deutivacaftor (VX-121/TEZ/D-IVA) in participants with cystic fibrosis.

  • Aztreonam Lysine for Inhalation in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Airway Infection

    Sorry, not accepting new patients

    The primary objective of this program is to provide expanded access to aztreonam lysine for inhalation (AZLI) 75 mg prior to its commercial availability to patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and chronic P. aeruginosa airway infection who have limited treatment options and are at risk for disease progression.

  • Global Utilization And Registry Database for Improved preservAtion of doNor LUNGs

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The objective of this registry is to collect and evaluate various clinical effectiveness parameters in patients with transplanted donor lung that were preserved and transported within the LUNGguard system, as well as retrospective standard of care patients
