Lupus clinical trials at UCSD

8 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Deucravacitinib (BMS-986165) Compared With Placebo in Participants With Active Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of deucravacitinib compared with placebo in an active moderate to severe Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) population.

  • BIIB059 (Litifilimab) in Adult Participants With Active Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Receiving Background Nonbiologic Lupus Standard of Care

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate efficacy of BIIB059 (litifilimab) compared with placebo in participants with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), who are receiving background lupus standard of care (SOC) therapy in reducing disease activity. Secondary objectives of this study are to demonstrate early onset of efficacy of BIIB059 compared with placebo in participants with active SLE, who are receiving background lupus SOC therapy in reducing disease activity; to demonstrate organ-specific efficacy of BIIB059 compared with placebo in participants with active SLE, who are receiving background lupus SOC therapy in reducing joint disease activity; to demonstrate effect of BIIB059 compared with placebo in reducing oral corticosteroid (OCS) use; to demonstrate organ-specific efficacy of BIIB059 compared with placebo in participants with active SLE, who are receiving background lupus SOC therapy in reducing skin disease activity; to demonstrate efficacy of BIIB059 compared with placebo in participants with active SLE, who are receiving background lupus SOC therapy in reducing occurrence of flare up to Week 52; to evaluate additional efficacy of BIIB059 compared with placebo in reducing disease activity with additional disease activity measures; to evaluate the effect of BIIB059 compared with placebo in reducing OCS use; to assess the difference between BIIB059 and placebo on participant-reported health-related quality of life (HRQoL), symptoms, and impacts of SLE; to evaluate the safety and tolerability of BIIB059 in participants with active SLE; and to evaluate immunogenicity of BIIB059 in participants with active SLE.

  • Edecesertib in Participants With Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus (CLE)

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    The goal of this clinical study is to test how edecesertib (formerly known as GS-5718) can be useful in treating Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus (CLE) in participants with CLE. Information on what is happening in the body relating to CLE, how the body processes, is affected by and responds to the study drug, and any study drug side effects will also be collected in this study.

  • Afimetoran Compared With Placebo in Participants With Active Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness, safety and tolerability of Afimetoran in participants with active Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). The extension period will provide additional long-term safety and efficacy data and enable those participants initially randomized to placebo to receive treatment with Afimetoran.

  • Continuous Safety and Efficacy of Litifilimab (BIIB059) in Adults With Active Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of litifilimab in participants with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The secondary objectives of this study are to evaluate the long-term effect of litifilimab on disease activity in participants with SLE, to evaluate the long-term effect of litifilimab in participants with SLE in maintaining low disease activity, to evaluate the effect of litifilimab in participants with active SLE in preventing irreversible organ damage, to assess long-term use of oral corticosteroid (OCS) with participants receiving litifilimab treatment, to assess the impact of litifilimab on participant-reported Health-Related Quality-of-Life Questionnaire (HRQoL), symptoms, and impacts of SLE, to evaluate long-term effect of litifilimab on laboratory parameters, and to evaluate immunogenicity of litifilimab.

  • Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (MiSLE)

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) obtained from umbilical cords for the treatment of adults with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The goal of this study is to determine if patients receiving an MSC infusion plus standard of care respond better than patients receiving placebo infusion plus standard of care.

  • EQ001 (Itolizumab) in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus With or Without Active Proliferative Nephritis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a multi-center study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, PK, PD, and clinical activity of itolizumab (EQ001) in subjects with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus with or without Active Proliferative Lupus Nephritis

    La Jolla, California and other locations

  • VIBRANT: VIB4920 for Active Lupus Nephritis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a multi-center double-blind placebo controlled clinical trial evaluating the efficacy of VIB4920 combined with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and prednisone in achieving a renal response in participants with active lupus nephritis (LN).
