Dysplasia clinical trials at UCSF

5 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Renal Anhydramnios Fetal Therapy

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    Early pregnancy renal anhydramnios or EPRA is a condition where a pregnant woman does not have any amniotic fluid around her fetus because of a problem with the fetus's kidneys. This condition is thought to be fatal once the fetus is born because of inadequate lung growth. The Renal Anhydramnios Fetal Therapy (RAFT) Trial offers eligible pregnant women with a diagnosis of EPRA an experimental therapy of repeated or serial "amnioinfusions" of fluid into the womb. An amnioinfusion involves placing a small needle through the pregnant woman's skin into the womb next to the fetus. Warm sterile fluid with balanced electrolytes and antibiotics is then slowly infused into amniotic space inside the womb. The aim is to help the fetus's lungs grow enough so he or she can survive after birth. These amnioinfusions will be carried out by an expert in fetal interventions at a RAFT center. There is a significant risk of early rupture of membranes and early delivery in subjects who receive amnioinfusions, and any potential trial participants will be counseled about these risks before they decide whether to join the trial. Any eligible patients who, after counseling, elect to terminate the pregnancy will not be eligible to participate in the trial. All eligible patients who choose to join the RAFT trial will be able to choose their assignment into one of two arms of the study: (1) to receive serial amnioinfusions (2) to not receive amnioinfusions but receive monitoring for the remainder of the pregnancy at the RAFT center. Thus, assignment of patients to study arm will not be random, but will be decided by the participant. Fetuses who do survive after birth will require intensive medical management for kidney failure including placement of a dialysis catheter and dialysis therapy with the eventual need for a kidney transplant. Treatment for lung disease secondary to abnormal lung development may also be required. The study will follow babies and their families until non-survival or transplant. Update: Due to recommendations from the RAFT trial Data and Safety Monitoring Board, the trial is no longer open to enrollment for pregnancies complicated by bilateral renal agenesis as of July 19, 2022. Enrollment for patients with pregnancies complicated by other causes of fetal renal failure remains open.

  • Seroprevalence of Pre-existing Antibodies Against Adenovirus-associated Virus Vector (AAV9) and the Progression of Disease in Patients With Plakophilin 2 (PKP2)-Associated Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC)

    open to eligible people ages 14-65

    This is a multicenter, non-interventional study to observe the natural progression of the disease and to study the prevalence of pre-existing antibodies to AAV9 used for gene therapy in a population of patients with PKP2 gene-associated ARVC. Participation from all patients is encouraged regardless of interest in or eligibility for gene therapy.

  • Normative Radiographic Parameters and Growth Curve of Hips Less Than Six Weeks of Gestational Age Using Ultrasound

    open to all eligible people

    This study aims to collect normative population data on the ultrasound radiographic parameters used to evaluate hip dysplasia in infants between 32 and 46 weeks of gestational age. This data would be utilized to develop a growth chart with standard deviations for this cohort that would be beneficial in the appropriate treatment of suspected hip dysplasia.

  • Artesunate Suppositories for the Treatment of HIV-negative Patients With Intra-anal HSIL

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a phase II double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study of Artesunate suppositories for the treatment of HIV-negative men and women who have anal high grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (anal HSIL)

  • XLHED-Affected Male Subjects Treated With EDI200 in Protocol ECP-002

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The goal of the ECP-002e extension study is to continue the evaluation of all EDI200-treated ECP-002 subjects up to age 10 yrs. No additional study drug administration is planned. The efficacy evaluations will incorporate growth and development parameters, frequency of infections and hospitalizations, and age-appropriate assessments of ectoderm-derived organ function. The safety evaluations will include physical examinations, adverse events and concomitant medication documentation, and laboratory testing. Funding Source - FDA OOPD
