Hepatitis C clinical trials at UCSF

10 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • HCV-TARGET- Hepatitis C Therapeutic Registry and Research Network

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The primary purpose of the HCV-TARGET study is to establish a nationwide registry of patients undergoing treatment with antiviral therapies for chronic hepatitis C (HCV) at both academic and community practices.

  • Mild Hypothermia and Acute Kidney Injury in Liver Transplantation

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Acute kidney injury (AKI), or worsening kidney function, is a common complication after liver transplantation (20-90% in published studies). Patients who experience AKI after liver transplantation have higher mortality, increased graft loss, longer hospital and intensive care unit stays, and more progression to chronic kidney disease compared with those who do not. In this study, half of the participants will have their body temperature cooled to slightly lower than normal (mild hypothermia) for a portion of the liver transplant operation, while the other half will have their body temperature maintained at normal. The study will evaluate if mild hypothermia protects from AKI during liver transplantation.

  • A Registry for Adolescent and Pediatric Participants Who Received a Gilead Hepatitis C Virus Direct Acting Antiviral (DAA) in Gilead-Sponsored Chronic Hepatitis C Infection Trials

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This Registry will enroll adolescent and pediatric participants who received at least one Gilead Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) direct acting antiviral (DAA) while participating in a Gilead-sponsored chronic hepatitis C clinical trial. The primary objective of this Registry is to determine the long-term safety of anti-HCV regimens in the pediatric population. Secondary objectives of this Registry are to determine whether subsequent detection of HCV RNA in participants who relapse following sustained virologic response (SVR) represents the re-emergence of pre-existing virus, the development of resistance mutations, or whether it is due to re-infection, and to characterize resistance mutations and the persistence of resistance mutations in pediatric participants who did not achieve SVR. Once enrolled, participants will be followed for up to 5 years.

  • A Registry for Participants With Cirrhosis Who Achieve a Sustained Virologic Response Following Treatment With a Sofosbuvir-Based Regimen Without Interferon for Chronic Hepatitis C Infection

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This Registry will enroll participants with cirrhosis with or without decompensated liver disease who have achieved a sustained virologic response (SVR) after receiving a sofosbuvir (SOF)-based regimen without interferon (IFN) while participating in a Gilead-sponsored hepatitis C virus (HCV) study or commercially at selected sites. Once enrolled, participants will be followed for up to 5 years.

  • A Study to Evaluate the Pharmacokinetics, Safety, and Efficacy of Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir in Pediatric Subjects With Genotypes 1-6 Chronic Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Infection

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a Phase 2/3, open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the pharmacokinetics, efficacy,and safety of glecaprevir (GLE)/pibrentasvir (PIB) for 8, 12, or 16 weeks in Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1-6 (GT1 - GT6)-infected pediatric participants ≥ 3 to < 18 years of age, with or without compensated cirrhosis, with or without human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) coinfection, who were either treatment-naïve (TN), treatment-experienced (TE) with pegylated interferon (pegIFN) with or without ribavirin (RBV), or TE with sofosbuvir (SOF) + RBV with or without pegIFN. The study was divided into 2 parts, according to the formulation of GLE/PIB administered. Part 1 of the study enrolled HCV GT1 - GT6 infected adolescent participants into the ≥ 12 to < 18 years old age group who were willing to swallow the adult formulation of GLE/PIB (Cohort 1). Part 2 of the study enrolled HCV GT1 - GT6 infected pediatric participants divided into the ≥ 9 to < 12 (Cohort 2), ≥ 6 to < 9 (Cohort 3), and ≥ 3 to < 6 (Cohort 4) years old age groups, who received the pediatric formulation of GLE + PIB. Interim data are presented for all participants in Parts 1 and 2 who completed post-treatment Week 12 or prematurely discontinued from the study.

  • Harvoni Treatment Porphyria Cutanea Tarda

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    In the medical literature there case reports that Harvoni improves symptoms in patients with PCT. However, this has never been systematically tested. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to assess whether Harvoni alone is an effective therapy of active PCT in patients with Chronic Hepatitis C.

  • Insulin Resistance in HCV Infection

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The study hypothesis is that the means by which HCV induces glucose intolerance is through impairment of B-cell function and compensatory hyperinsulinemia in predisposed Latinos with insulin resistance and that HCV eradication improves these abnormalities. It is also hypothesized that moderate alcohol consumption impact insulin sensitivity and secretion with Latinos with or without HCV infection.

  • Natural History of Hepatitis C in Patients With Normal Liver Tests

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The Major goals of this project was to assess the natural history of disease in chronic hepatitis C patients with normal ALT and to determine the virologic and host factors associated with disease severity.

  • Rapid HCV Treatment Access for Persons Who Use Drugs

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study is being done to compare two strategies to deliver HCV treatment to persons with hepatitis C virus (HCV) who also use drugs and are participating in an outpatient opioid treatment program (OTP). Participants will be randomized into one of two treatment groups: 1. Test and treat plus peer-mentors: This treatment group will be offered 8 weeks of glecaprevir/pibrentasvir (an FDA approved HCV treatment) within days of HCV diagnosis at the OTP. Participants in this group will receive treatment adherence support from a peer-mentor who is someone who has been cured of HCV infection. 2. Standard of care HCV treatment referral: This treatment group will be referred to an offsite HCV treatment location. This is the usual care for anyone who tests positive for HCV at the OTP who is not participating in this study.

  • The No One Waits Study: Acceptability and Feasibility of Community-based Point-of-diagnosis HCV Treatment Study

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy for hepatitis C virus (HCV) offers a cure to those with chronic HCV infection. For marginalized communities, linkage to care services often aren't enough to overcome barriers to accessing the medical system. For difficult to link populations, offering treatment at the same non-clinical community space may improve uptake and reduce loss-to-follow-up. The purpose of this 2 year study is to assess the feasibility, acceptability and effectiveness of accelerated initiation of commercially available DAA therapy targeting socially marginalized communities (e.g., medically underserved, homeless, people actively injecting drugs). The study will be carried out at two community sites that perform HCV testing: (a) fixed community site and (b) community mobile site via clinical research van. Participants (n=150) who test anti-HCV positive and HCV RNA positive (chronic infection) are invited to enroll into the no one waits (NOW) Study and begin HCV treatment at point of diagnosis. All evaluation, medication dissemination, and follow-up care will take place at the project site. The investigators will estimate the effect of on-site point-of-diagnosis (POD) treatment on (1) time from HCV testing to treatment initiation, (2) completing treatment, and (3) attaining (sustained virologic response) SVR-12; overall and by study site. A secondary product will be a lesson learned guide of recommendations for implementing a POD on-site test and treat program for dissemination beyond San Francisco.
