Arthritis clinical trials at UCSD
9 in progress, 4 open to eligible people

  • Abatacept for SLE Arthritis (IM101-330)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This research trial is for patients who have been diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with swollen, tender joints (which is called inflammatory polyarthritis) because of the SLE. The purpose of this clinical research study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of treatment with abatacept (Abatacept) 125mg injected subcutaneously (under the skin) weekly for 16 weeks versus placebo injections(a substance with no active ingredients and therefore may have no treatment benefit) in subjects with SLE and inflammatory polyarthritis. The effectiveness will be assessed primarily by the number of swollen, tender joints (called a joint count) at each of study visits. Study Medication Abatacept is approved in the U.S. for treating rheumatoid arthritis by prescription and has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treating SLE yet. In this study, subjects will receive treatment with either abatacept or placebo once a week for 16 weeks (a total of 16 injections).

  • Apremilast Pregnancy Exposure Registry

    open to eligible females

    The purpose of the Apremilast Pregnancy Exposure Registry is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to apremilast and to evaluate the safety of this medication relative to specified pregnancy outcomes, and to evaluate potential effects of prenatal apremilast exposure on infant health status through one year of age.

  • OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project

    open to eligible females

    The purpose of the OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Study is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to certain medications, to evaluate the possible teratogenic effect of these medications and to follow live born infants for five years after birth. With respect to fetal outcome, it is important to evaluate the spectrum of outcomes that may be relevant to a medication exposure during pregnancy, and these include both easily recognizable defects which are visible at birth, as well as more subtle or delayed defects that may not be readily identifiable without special expertise and observation beyond the newborn period.

  • Stelara Pregnancy Exposure Registry OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project

    open to eligible females

    The purpose of the OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Study is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to certain medications, to evaluate the possible teratogenic effect of these medications and to follow live born infants for one year after birth. With respect to fetal outcome, it is important to evaluate the spectrum of outcomes that may be relevant to a medication exposure during pregnancy, and these include both easily recognizable defects which are visible at birth, as well as more subtle or delayed defects that may not be readily identifiable without special expertise and observation beyond the newborn period.

  • An Open-label Extension Study Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Upadacitinib (ABT-494) in Rheumatoid Arthritis Subjects

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a Phase 2, multicenter, open-label extension study in RA subjects. The sub-study is to assess the impact of upadacitinib treatment (15 mg QD and 30 mg QD) with background MTX on immunological responses to Prevnar 13® in RA patients.

  • Long Term Extension Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of Filgotinib in Adults With Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of filgotinib in participants who have completed one of the parent studies of filgotinib in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

  • Meditation Effects on Brain Function in Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The purpose of this study is to determine the neural mechanisms supporting meditation-based pain relief in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. The scientific premise is that RA patients' use of different meditation practices during noxious thermal stimulation will alter neural function in brain areas associated with pain, evaluation, and emotional appraisal. The investigators will randomize RA patients to a brief 4-session course of Intervention A (n=20), Intervention B (n=20), or Intervention C (n=20). At post-intervention, participants will undergo functional MRI (fMRI) using a perfusion-based arterial spin labeling (ASL) technique during noxious thermal stimulation to determine if the meditation practices differentially alter neural function during noxious thermal stimulation.

  • Safety and Tolerability Study Of PF-06835375 In Subjects With Seropositive Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Or Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is a Phase 1 single and multiple dose escalation study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of PF-06835375 in subjects with seropositive SLE or RA. The design is double-blind, sponsor open and placebo controlled. This study will include two parts: Part A and Part B. Part A will consist of single ascending dose cohorts, Part B of multiple ascending dose cohorts. This study will enroll up to a total of approximately 112 subjects at approximately 10 sites.

  • Safety Study Of Tofacitinib Versus Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) Inhibitor In Subjects With Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This post-marketing study is designed to compare the safety of tofacitinib versus TNF inhibitor with respect to major cardiovascular adverse events and malignancies, excluding non-melanoma skin cancers when given to subjects with rheumatoid arthritis. Other safety events, including non-melanoma skin cancers, hepatic events, infections, and efficacy parameters will be collected and evaluated in the study.
