Graft Versus Host Disease clinical trials at UCSF
5 in progress, 3 open to new patients

  • An Open-Label Study of Defibrotide for the Prevention of Acute Graft-versus-Host-Disease (AGvHD)

    open to eligible people ages 1-74

    This is a study comparing the defibrotide prophylaxis arm vs standard of care arm for the prevention of aGvHD.

  • Ibrutinib in Combination With Corticosteroids vs Placebo in Combination With Corticosteroids in Subjects With New Onset cGVHD

    open to eligible people ages 12 years and up

    To evaluate the safety and efficacy of ibrutinib in combination with prednisone in subjects with newly diagnosed moderate to severe cGVHD.

  • Lactobacillus Plantarum in Preventing Acute Graft Versus Host Disease in Children Undergoing Donor Stem Cell Transplant

    open to eligible people ages 2-25

    This randomized phase III trial studies how well Lactobacillus plantarum works in preventing acute graft versus host disease in children undergoing donor stem cell transplant. Lactobacillus plantarum may help prevent the development of gastrointestinal graft versus host disease in children, adolescents, and young adults undergoing donor stem cell transplant.

  • Abatacept as GVHD Prophylaxis Phase 2

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a phase II multi-center, randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial. The investigators are doing this study to see if a new drug, abatacept, can be used together with a calcineurin inhibitor (cyclosporine or tacrolimus) and methotrexate to provide better protection against Acute Graft versus Host Disease (aGvHD) without causing more infections.

  • Predictive Biomarkers For Pediatric Chronic Graft-Versus-Host Disease

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) can be hard to diagnose, difficult to manage and contributes significantly to morbidity and mortality in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation patients. The research will look into identifying and validating cGVHD biological indicators (=bio-markers) which will be evaluated whether they can predict a future development of the disease. The study hypothesis is that a number of previously reported cGVHD bio-markers, known to be present at the time of cGVHD diagnosis, will also be present at earlier time points, before cGVHD develops. Following validation, the bio-markers will be beneficial for finding those patients who are in higher risk to develop cGVHD. By identifying the higher-risk group, which is more likely to develop cGVHD, a pre-emptive therapy might be applied in order to prevent or reduce the prevalence of the disease.
