Patient Adherence clinical trials at UCSD
2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

  • CCTG 603: Randomized Controlled Trial of iTAB Plus Motivational Interviewing for PrEP Adherence in Transgender Individuals (The iM-PrEPT Study)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    CCTG 603 is an open-label, two-arm, randomized (1:1) clinical demonstration project to determine if brief Motivational Interviewing (MI-B) added to a text-message based adherence intervention (iTAB) improves adherence to PrEP among transgender persons.

  • Telehealth Intervention for Improved Blood Pressure Control With Targeted Incentives

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Hypertension is the leading risk factor for cardiovascular disease, global mortality, and ranks third among the causes of disability. Treatment of hypertension is relatively straightforward, but patient adherence to long-term self-care strategies is problematically low. Three important behaviors that individuals can adhere to in order to help lower their BP are 1) Taking medications as prescribed by a physician, 2) Monitoring BP at home, and 3) Limiting dietary sodium intake. Adherence to these behaviors is problematic and currently ranges from 25% to 50%; the present Phase I STTR study is aimed at addressing the behavioral barriers for adherence to these three activities with the help of mobile technology. In particular, this STTR will develop and test an incentive program delivered through a mobile health app to increase adherence to prescribed BP control regimens and precipitate reduction in BP.
