Liver Disease clinical trials at UCSD

10 in progress, 7 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Development of Kinetic Biomarkers of Liver Fibrosis Measuring NAFLD

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a small preliminary study conducted to explore new methods for the potential of aiding in diagnosis of liver fibrotic disease as well as predicting disease progression. There will be a total of 4 visits spread out over approximately 8 weeks. You will be asked to drink "heavy water" during most of that time. "Heavy Water" also known as deuterated water, is physically and chemically very similar to ordinary drinking water. It tastes and feels exactly like regular water. It is odorless and has no known harmful effects at the doses given here. Heavy water occurs naturally, and is a minor component of the water we all ingest daily.

  • Guselkumab (Anti-IL 23 Monoclonal Antibody) for Alcohol Associated Liver Disease

    open to eligible people ages 21 years and up

    This is a phase I study of guselkumab, a humanized anti-IL23 monoclonal antibody, for patients with alcoholic liver disease. This drug is approved for the use in psoriatic arthritis but not for alcoholic liver disease. The investigators will be using a standard 3+3 phase I dose escalation trial design, the dose levels will start from 30 mg, 70 mg and to 100 mg, a maximum total of 24 patients will be evaluable. In this study the investigators propose to establish safety of the product in those with alcoholic liver disease and efficacy (secondary endpoint) will be determined by biomarkers for liver inflammation and fibrosis surrogate biomarkers.

  • Heritability of Fatty Liver as Measured by MRI: a Cross Sectional Study of Twins and Family Members

    open to eligible people ages 18-100

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common liver disease in the United States. The cause of NAFLD is poorly defined but is thought to involve complex interactions of genetic and environmental factors. NAFLD is often associated with the traits of the metabolic syndrome including diabetes, high cholesterol or elevated blood pressure. Currently, there are no accurate noninvasive means of evaluating NAFLD and its more serious form which includes inflammation that may lead to severe scarring in the liver. The goal of this study is to evaluate shared genetic factors that underlie NAFLD and features of the metabolic syndrome as determined by blood work and radiographic studies in a cohort of twins and first degree relatives.

  • Metabolic Interventions to Resolve Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) With Fibrosis (MIRNA)

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    The study aims to evaluate two, orally administered, investigational agents - PF-06865571 (DGAT2 inhibitor) and the coadministration of PF-06865571 with PF-05221304 (ACC inhibitor). This study is specifically designed to evaluate the effect of a range of doses of DGAT2i alone, and DGAT2i + ACCi, on resolution of NASH or improvement in liver fibrosis, as assessed histologically (via liver biopsy).

  • Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) Database 3

    open to eligible people ages 2 years and up

    The NAFLD Database 3 will enroll approximately 1500 adult patients and 750 pediatric patients suspected or known to have NAFLD or NASH-related cirrhosis. To elucidate, through the cooperative effort of a multidisciplinary and multicenter group of collaborators, the etiology, natural history, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of NAFLD, and in particular its more severe form of NASH and its complications.

  • Noninvasive Biomarkers of Metabolic Liver Disease 1.1

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    NIMBLE is a comprehensive, five-year collaborative effort to standardize, compare, validate, and advance the regulatory qualification of imaging and circulating biomarkers to diagnose and stage nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and to predict and assess response to therapeutic intervention (https://fnih.org/what-we-do/biomarkers-consortium/programs/nimble)

  • Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of CC-90001 in Participants With Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) and Liver Fibrosis

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a Phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, multinational, dose-finding study evaluating the efficacy of three treatment doses of CC-90001 compared with placebo, in Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) participants with Stage 2, Stage 3 liver fibrosis. This study is designed to assess response to treatment on measures of fibrosis and other efficacy parameters. It will also assess dose response and overall safety.

  • A Study of Experimental Medication BMS-986036 in Adults With Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) and Liver Cirrhosis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a study of experimental medication BMS-986036 given to adults with Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH; the buildup of fat and inflammation in the liver that is not caused by alcohol) and liver cirrhosis (liver damage characterized by normal liver tissue being replaced by scar tissue).

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a study of experimental medication BMS-986036 given to adults with Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH; the buildup of fat and inflammation in the liver that is not caused by alcohol) and stage 3 liver fibrosis (severe fibrosis).
