Pregnancy clinical trials at UCSF

8 in progress, 4 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Engaging Mothers & Babies; Reimagining Antenatal Care for Everyone (EMBRACE) Study

    open to eligible females

    This is a randomized comparative effectiveness study of two forms of enhanced prenatal care among 657 Medi-Cal eligible pregnant individuals in Fresno, California. The goal is to see whether group prenatal care with wrap around services versus individual prenatal care supplemented by services covered by the California Department of Public Health Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP) results in less depression and anxiety, and more respectful, more person-centered maternity care and lower rates of preterm birth.

  • Natural Versus Programmed Frozen Embryo Transfer (NatPro)

    open to eligible females ages 18-41

    NatPro is a two-arm, parallel-group, multi-center, randomized trial in which women undergoing frozen embryo transfer (FET) will be randomized to receive either a modified natural cycle (corpus luteum present) or a programmed cycle (corpus luteum absent).

  • Periviable GOALS Decision Support Tool

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The Periviable GOALS (Getting Optimal Alignment around Life Support) decision support tool (DST) is meant to facilitate informed shared decision-making regarding neonatal resuscitation for families facing the threat of a periviable delivery (deliveries occurring between 22 0/7 - 25 6/7 weeks gestational age). It is designed for parents to review independent of their clinician, and is intended to supplement, not replace, clinician counseling. The focus of the DST is the provision of patient-centered outcomes information and assistance with values clarification regarding neonatal outcomes. This is a multisite, randomized controlled trial to test the effect of the Periviable GOALS DST on shared decision making and decision satisfaction. The investigators hypothesize that participants who utilize the GOALS DST will have improved shared decision making and higher decision satisfaction.

  • Expanded NIPT for Pregnancy Complications

    open to eligible females ages 18-60

    This study evaluates the utility of expanded panel non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) in detecting confined placental mosaicism of rare autosomal trisomies among pregnancies with placentally-mediated complications, including fetal growth restriction and severe preeclampsia.

  • B Cell Levels In Infants Potentially Exposed To Ocrelizumab During Pregnancy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study will evaluate the potential placental transfer of ocrelizumab in women with clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) or multiple sclerosis (MS) [in line with the locally approved indications] whose last dose of ocrelizumab was administered any time from 6 months before the last menstrual period (LMP) through to the first trimester (up to gestational week 13) of pregnancy, and the corresponding pharmacodynamic effects (B cell levels) in the infant.

  • Pharmacodynamics of M281 Administered to Pregnant Women at High Risk for Early Onset Severe Hemolytic Disease of the Fetus and Newborn (HDFN)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety in mother and neonate/infant of M281 administered to pregnant women who are at high risk for Early Onset Severe Hemolytic Disease of the Fetus and Newborn (EOS-HDFN). The effectiveness of the investigational drug M281 will be measured by looking at the percentage of participants with live birth at or after gestational age (GA) 32 weeks and without a need for an intrauterine transfusion (IUT) throughout their entire pregnancy.

  • DECIDE: A Comparative Effectiveness Trial of Metformin Versus Insulin for the Treatment of Gestational Diabetes

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This is a non-inferiority patient-centered and pragmatic comparative-effectiveness pregnancy randomized controlled trial (RCT) with postpartum maternal and child follow-up through 2 years of 1,572 individuals with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) randomized to oral metformin versus injectable insulin. This study will determine if metformin is not inferior to insulin in reducing adverse pregnancy outcomes, is comparably safe for exposed individuals and children, and if patient-reported factors, including facilitators of and barriers to use, differ between metformin and insulin. A total of 1,572 pregnant individuals with GDM who need pharmacotherapy will be recruited at 20 U.S. sites using consistent treatment criteria to metformin versus insulin. Participants and their children will be followed through delivery to two years postpartum.

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Prospective nationwide cohort study of pregnant women enrolled early in gestation and followed for Covid-19 exposure and infection, with follow up of obstetrical outcomes and infant development through the first year of life.
