Diabetes Type 1 clinical trials at UCSD

10 in progress, 5 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Oral Ladarixin in Recent Onset Type 1 Diabetes and a Low Residual β-cell Function

    open to eligible people ages 14-45

    The objective of this clinical trial is to assess whether ladarixin treatment is effective in preserving beta-cell function and delaying the progression of type 1 diabetes (T1D) in adolescent and adult patients. The safety of ladarixin in the specific clinical setting will be also evaluated.

  • Acetazolamide in Persons With Type 1 Diabetes

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a dose finding trial where participants will receive escalating doses of acetazolamide, each for a 2-week dosing period followed by a 2-week washout period. The three doses examined will be open-label 62.5mg twice daily, 125mg twice daily, and 250mg twice daily of acetazolamide. A baseline Iohexol GFR (glomerular filtration rate) measurement will be performed prior to the first administration of each acetazolamide dose and then again following each dosing period. Including a screening visit and a follow-up visit, there will be a total of 8 study visits over approximately 16 weeks.

  • Afrezza® INHALE-1 Study in Pediatrics

    open to eligible people ages 4-17

    INHALE-1 is a Phase 3, open-label, randomized clinical study evaluating the efficacy and safety of Afrezza in combination with a basal insulin (i.e., the Afrezza group) versus insulin aspart, insulin lispro or insulin glulisine in combination with a basal insulin (i.e., the Rapid-acting Insulin Analog [RAA] injection group) in pediatric subjects with type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus. Following 26 weeks of randomized treatment (i.e., Afrezza or RAA injection combined with a basal insulin), all subjects will enter a treatment extension where subjects will receive Afrezza until Week 52. The purpose of the treatment extension is to assess safety and efficacy with continued use of Afrezza. Pediatric subjects ≥4 and <18 years of age will be enrolled in this study. Subjects will be randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio to either the Afrezza group or the RAA injection group. The study is composed of: - Up to 5-week screening/run-in period - 26 week randomized treatment period - 26-week treatment extension - 4-week follow-up period

  • GRA in Patients With Type 1

    open to eligible people ages 18-65

    This study will examine the effects a Glucagon Receptor Antagonist (GRA), has on Insulin Sensitivity, Cardiovascular risks (CVD), and Ketone body formation in participants with Type 1 diabetes. The participants will complete blood tests, tests to measure energy expenditure, CVD risks, and insulin resistance. These tests will be performed prior to start of treatment and again after 12-weeks of treatment with the GRA (called REMD-477).

  • Immune Effects of Vedolizumab With or Without Anti-TNF Pre-treatment in T1D

    open to eligible people ages 18-45

    The underlying hypothesis is that vedolizumab will modify immune cell trafficking in type 1 diabetes, and that this will be enhanced by pre-treatment with etanercept. This study will determine whether there is mechanistic evidence in support of this hypothesis and provide preliminary information about safety, efficacy, and tolerability of vedolizumab with and without pretreatment with etanercept in adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D)

  • Advancing Understanding of Transportation Options

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This Stage II randomized, controlled, longitudinal trial seeks to assess the acceptability, feasibility, and effects of a driving decision aid use among geriatric patients and providers. This multi-site trial will (1) test the driving decision aid (DDA) in improving decision making and quality (knowledge, decision conflict, values concordance and behavior intent); and (2) determine its effects on specific subpopulations of older drivers (stratified for cognitive function, decisional capacity, and attitudinally readiness for a mobility transition). The overarching hypotheses are that the DDA will help older adults make high-quality decisions, which will mitigate the negative psychosocial impacts of driving reduction, and that optimal DDA use will target certain populations and settings.

  • Combination Adjunctive Therapy to Address Multiple Metabolic Imbalances in Type 1 Diabetes

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This is a single site, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial to quantify the effects of combination adjunctive therapy on glycemic control, ketogenesis during insulinopenia, insulin resistance, and diabetes burden and quality of life.

  • Diabetes Autoimmunity Withdrawn In New Onset and In Established Patients

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The study is a prospective, randomized, 52-week double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial in subjects with T1D followed by a 2-year safety follow-up.

  • Diamyd Administered Into Lymph Nodes in Individuals Recently Diagnosed With Type 1 Diabetes, Carrying the HLA DR3-DQ2 Haplotype

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The objective of DIAGNODE-3 is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of three intranodal injections of 4 μg of Diamyd compared to placebo, along with oral Vitamin D supplementation, to preserve endogenous beta cell function and influence glycemic parameters in adolescent and adults recently diagnosed with T1D carrying the HLA DR3-DQ2 haplotype.

  • Suppression of Endogenous Glucose Production by Injectable HDV-Insulin Lispro: A Dose Response Study in Human Subjects With Type 1 Diabetes

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Single-center, double-blind, random-sequence study assessing the HDV dose-response relationship to Endogenous Glucose Production (EGP), Free Fatty Acids (FFA) and Glucose Disposal Rate (GDR) during a euglycemic clamp procedure following overnight stabilization of blood glucose with intravenous insulin (and, if needed intravenous glucose). EGP and GDR will be determined using established radioisotope methodology. The concentration of Hepatic Directed Vesicles (HDV) in the insulin lispro (LIS) infused during the clamp procedure will be varied such that the percentage of HDV-bound LIS will range from 0%, 1%, 10%, and 100%. Each participant will thus undergo four clamp procedures at the four different HDV levels. LIS will be infused at a constant dose (6 mU/m2/min) for each of the four procedures.
