Physical Activity clinical trials at UCSF
3 in progress, 2 open to new patients

  • Activity Trackers for Improving BP

    open to eligible people ages 12-30

    The study aims to determine if use of physical activity trackers coupled with provider feedback will increase awareness of young adults of their physical fitness and improve blood pressure levels. The goal of this pilot study is feasibility, with a secondary goal of examining potential effect sizes for planning purposes for a larger randomized controlled trial.

  • WALK Study: Women's Active Living for Koreans Study

    open to eligible females ages 40-69

    The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a health concern among Asians. Growing evidence indicates that Korean Americans had higher MetS prevalence compared to non-Hispanic Whites, but a culturally and linguistically appropriate lifestyle intervention has not been developed for Korean American middle-aged and older women. Thus, the investigators propose to develop a 4-week lifestyle intervention (Women's Active Living for Koreans (WALK) Study) to increase physical activity (PA) and reduce sedentary behavior for Korean American women.

  • Diabetes and Depression Text Messaging Intervention

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The first goal of the randomized trial will be to study the influence of personalized text messaging on both glycemic control and depressive symptoms. The primary outcomes for this aim will be improvements in physical activity. The secondary outcomes include diabetes and depressive symptoms at the 6-month follow-up, as well as mood and quality of life. The secondary goal of the trial is to evaluate the influence of nurse phone outreach on glycemic control and depressive symptoms for participants who are non-responsive to the text messaging approaches used in this study. In particular, a sequential multiple assignment randomized trial (SMART) design will use responsiveness data from participants during the course of the study to implement a second randomization step for nurse phone outreach.We will examine the same primary outcome and secondary health behavior outcomes among this sub-group.
