Hepatitis C clinical trials at UCSF

5 in progress, 4 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Liver Cirrhosis Network Rosuvastatin Efficacy and Safety for Cirrhosis in the United States

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    This is a double-blind, phase 2 study to evaluate safety and efficacy of rosuvastatin in comparison to placebo after 2 years in patients with compensated cirrhosis.

  • Partner Navigation Intervention for Hepatitis C Treatment Among Young People Who Inject Drugs

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The Partner Navigation Intervention Study is a randomized controlled study (RCT) to assess the efficacy and mechanism of action of the first behavioral intervention to increase hepatitis C (HCV) treatment initiation among adult people who inject drugs (PWID).

  • Rapid HCV Treatment Access for Persons Who Use Drugs

    open to eligible people ages 18-70

    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.

  • Liver Cirrhosis Network Cohort Study

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Liver Cirrhosis Network (LCN) Cohort Study is an observational study designed to identify risk factors and develop prediction models for risk of decompensation in adults with liver cirrhosis. LCN Cohort Study involves multiple institutions and an anticipated 1200 participants. Enrolled participants will have study visits every 6 months (180 days), with opportunities to complete specific visit components via telehealth or remotely. Visits will include collection of questionnaire data and the in-person visits will include questionnaires, physical exams, imaging, and sample collection.

  • 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.
