COVID-19 clinical trials at UCSD

11 in progress, 5 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Study to Evaluate Efficacy, Safety, and Immunogenicity of mRNA-1273 Vaccine in Adults Aged 18 Years and Older to Prevent COVID-19

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The mRNA-1273 vaccine is being developed to prevent COVID-19, the disease resulting from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) infection. The study is designed to primarily evaluate the efficacy, safety, and immunogenicity of mRNA-1273 to prevent COVID-19 for up to 2 years after the second dose of mRNA-1273.

  • ACTIV-2: A Study for Outpatients With COVID-19

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Drug studies often look at the effect one or two drugs have on a medical condition, and involve one company. There is currently an urgent need for one study to efficiently test multiple drugs from more than one company, in people who have tested positive for COVID-19 but who do not currently need hospitalization. This could help prevent disease progression to more serious symptoms and complications, and spread of COVID-19 in the community. This study looks at the safety and effectiveness of different drugs in treating COVID-19 in outpatients. Participants in the study will be treated with either a study drug or with placebo.

  • Convalescent Plasma to Stem Coronavirus (CSSC-001)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Evaluate the efficacy of treatment with high-titer Anti- SARS-CoV-2 plasma versus control (SARS-CoV-2 non-immune plasma) in subjects exposed to Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at day 28.

  • NCI COVID-19 in Cancer Patients, NCCAPS Study

    open to all eligible people

    This study collects blood samples, medical information, and medical images from patients who are being treated for cancer and have a positive test for SARS CoV-2, the new coronavirus that causes the disease called COVID-19. Collecting blood samples, medical information, and medical images may help researchers determine how COVID-19 affects the outcomes of patients undergoing cancer treatment and how having cancer affects COVID-19.

  • Respiratory Virus Hospitalization Study (FLU 003 Plus)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Following the sudden and unexpected emergence of influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 (2009 H1N1) virus, this observational study was initiated to estimate rates of morbidity and mortality and to examine predictors of severity among participants with 2009 H1N1 infection. In 2011, as surveillance indicated that 2009 H1N1 virus was co-circulating with other seasonal influenza A and B viruses worldwide, the protocol was expanded to include other influenza A subtypes and influenza B viruses. The current version of the protocol (released in August 2013) further broadens the scope of this observational study. With the recognition that novel respiratory viruses other than novel influenza A viruses, e.g., Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV), could become prevalent and of major public health importance, the objectives of this protocol have been expanded.

  • A Study of Ad26.COV2.S for the Prevention of SARS-CoV-2-Mediated COVID-19 in Adult Participants

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The study will enroll up to 60,000 participants in order to evaluate the efficacy of Ad26.COV2.S in the prevention of molecularly confirmed moderate to severe/critical COVID-19, as compared to placebo, in adult participants.

  • Convalescent Plasma in Outpatients With COVID-19

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The overarching goal of this project is to confirm or refute the role of passive immunization as a safe and efficacious therapy in preventing the progression from mild to severe/critical COVID-19 illness and to understand the immunologic kinetics of anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies after passive immunization.The primary objective is to determine the efficacy and safety of a single dose of convalescent plasma (CP) for preventing the progression from mild to severe COVID-19 illness. The secondary objective is to characterize the immunologic response to CP administration. This study will adults presenting to the emergency department (ED) with mild, symptomatic, laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 illness, who are at high risk for progression to severe/critical illness, but who are clinically stable for outpatient management at randomization.

  • Global Assessment of Acute and Chronic Kidney Disease Incidence and Outcomes in Patients With COVID-19 Infection

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has created a significant strain on health care resources across the world for managing critically ill patients. Emerging reports from China, South Korea and Italy have reported varying incidence of acute kidney (AKI) ranging from 5-15% with a mortality of 60-80% however there is no systematic assessment of the risk factors, recognition, course and outcomes in patients with and without kidney disease whose course is complicated by AKI1-4. Patients with underlying CKD, immunosuppressed patients with renal transplants and ESKD patients are at high risk for COVID-19 infection and there is limited information on the effect of COVID-19 on the course and outcomes of these patients. The requirement for renal support including IHD, CRRT and sorbent based therapies has been variable and has contributed to the intense pressure on the nephrology and critical care providers for delivering these therapies. As the COVID-19 pandemic expands in the USA and abroad, there is an intense need to understand the epidemiology of the disease and the resources needed for renal support to inform clinical management and public health interventions. In this study, the investigators aim to investigate health care facilities across the world (hospital wards, ICU, outpatient clinics, nursing homes, healthcare centers) to draw a global picture of incidence, risk factors, resources available for treatment and prognosis of acute and chronic kidney disease in patient with COVID 19 confirmed infection. The aim is to identify trends in patients with acute and chronic kidney disease, determine its incidence, treatment and outcomes in different settings across the world. This information will be used to develop and implement educational tools and resources to prevent deaths from AKI and progression of CKD in this and following pandemics.

  • Improving Real-time COVID-19 Monitoring Through Smartphone Voice Analysis

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is a confirmatory study that seeks to examine whether respiratory-responsive vocal biomarkers have potential to respond to COVID-19 infection status and respiratory symptom severity. Patients with suspected COVID-19 and healthy controls will submit daily voice samples and symptom inventories on their personal smartphone devices for 14 days.

  • PK and Safety of Remdesivir for Treatment of COVID-19 in Pregnant and Non-Pregnant Women in the US

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The purpose of this study is to describe the pharmacokinetic (PK) properties and safety of remdesivir (GS-5734TM) (RDV) administered to pregnant and non-pregnant women with COVID-19. It is a Phase I, prospective, open label, non-randomized opportunistic PK study in pregnant and non-pregnant women of childbearing potential hospitalized and receiving RDV for treatment of COVID-19. RDV will not be provided as part of the study.

  • Ramipril for the Treatment of COVID-19

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    In this study we propose to treat 560 patients with ramipril or placebo for 14 days. After an initial evaluation for COVID-19 status, medical history, and symptom assessment, patients will receive either 2.5 mg/day of ramipril or placebo. Patients' symptoms and study endpoints will be monitored at regular intervals. After 14 days, patients will undergo a laboratory assessment and an end-of-treatment follow-up visit at day 28. The primary endpoints of successful therapy will be improved survival, reductions in ICU admissions, and/or reductions in use of mechanical ventilator support.
