Cystic Fibrosis clinical trials at UCSD
4 in progress, 3 open to new patients

  • CHaractErizing CFTR Modulated Changes in Sweat Chloride and Their Association With Clinical Outcomes

    open to eligible people ages 4 months and up

    This is a multicenter, cross-sectional, cohort study which will collect contemporary SC values from approximately 1000 CF patients prescribed and currently receiving commercially approved CFTR modulator therapies.

  • Long-term Study in US Cystic Fibrosis Patients Receiving Digestive Enzyme Supplements to Assess Narrowing of the Large Intestine Causing Adverse Intestinal Symptoms (Fibrosing Colonopathy)

    open to eligible people ages up to 99 years

    This is a long-term study in cystic fibrosis patients who are participating in the Cystic Fibrosis Patient Registry to assess the occurrence and risk factors for a rare bowel disorder called fibrosing colonopathy (narrowing of the large intestine). Patients will be followed at their regular clinical care visits over a 10-year period and approached if they develop symptoms of fibrosing colonopathy for collection and use of further detailed information.

  • Standardized Treatment of Pulmonary Exacerbations II

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Cystic fibrosis (CF), a life-shortening genetic disease, is marked by acute episodes during which symptoms of lung infection increase and lung function decreases. These pulmonary exacerbations are treated with varying antibiotics for varying time periods based on needs determined by individual patients, their families, and the health care providers. Cystic fibrosis pulmonary guidelines for the treatment of pulmonary exacerbation published by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) in 2009 provided recommendations for treatment and also identified key questions for which additional studies were needed. A strong desire among clinicians to reduce treatment durations (and reduce cost, inconvenience, and potential toxicities) is in conflict with belief that patients not responding robustly to treatment might benefit from extending treatment. This randomized, controlled, open-label study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of differing durations of IV treatment, given in the hospital or at home for a pulmonary exacerbation in adult patients with CF.

  • Testing the Effect of Adding Chronic Oral Azithromycin to Inhaled Tobramycin in People With CF

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is a study to examine the effect of combining chronic oral azithromycin with inhaled tobramycin in adolescent and adult subjects with cystic fibrosis who are chronically infected with P. aeruginosa.
