Rheumatoid Arthritis clinical trials at UCSD
8 in progress, 3 open to new patients

  • A Study of RO7123520 to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy in Participants With Moderately To Severely Active Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Who Are Inadequately Responding to Anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF)-Alpha Therapy

    open to eligible people ages 18-80

    This is a Phase IIa/b double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, parallel group, multicenter study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of RO7123520 as adjunctive therapy in participants with RA who are inadequately responding to standard-of-care (methotrexate and anti-TNF-alpha therapy). Part 1 of the study will evaluate safety. Part 2 will evaluate efficacy and safety. Part 3 will evaluate dose-ranging efficacy. Participants will have the option of continuing to the extension period of the study.

  • OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project

    open to eligible females

    The purpose of the OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Study is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to certain medications, to evaluate the possible teratogenic effect of these medications and to follow live born infants for five years after birth. With respect to fetal outcome, it is important to evaluate the spectrum of outcomes that may be relevant to a medication exposure during pregnancy, and these include both easily recognizable defects which are visible at birth, as well as more subtle or delayed defects that may not be readily identifiable without special expertise and observation beyond the newborn period.

  • Prediction of Response to Certolizumab Pegol Treatment by Functional MRI of the Brain

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    By using functional MRI the investigators have recently shown that TNFi elicit rapid changes in brain function linked to the perception of RA [5]. Functional MRI represents a method allowing detecting tiny changes in neuronal activity by measuring alterations of blood flow in the context of neuronal activation. TNFi rapidly reversed the widespread activation of brain centers involved in pain such as the thalamus and the somatosensoric cortex, as well as those involved in the control, of mood and emotions such as the limbic system. Moreover, as small phase I study with 10 patients with RA showed that high brain activity detected in the functional MRI predicts clinical response to Certolizumab Pegol after 1 month, suggesting the central nervous system activity may be used as a tool to predict response to TNFi [8]. The rationale of this study is to test whether response to TNFi can be predicted by using functional MRI.

  • A Study of Ocrelizumab Compared to Placebo in Patients With Active Rheumatoid Arthritis Who Don't Have a Response to Anti-TNF-α Therapy (SCRIPT)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of ocrelizumab, compared with placebo, in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis who have an inadequate response to at least one anti-TNF-alpha therapy. Patients will be randomized to receive placebo, 200mg of intravenous ocrelizumab, or 500mg of i.v. ocrelizumab on days 1 and 15. A repeat course of i.v. treatment will be administered at weeks 24 and 26. All patients will receive stable doses of either concomitant methotrexate (7.5-25mg/week) or leflunomide (10-20mg po daily) and may receive additional DMARDs. The anticipated time on study treatment is 1-2 years. Target sample size is 1000.

  • An Open-label Extension Study Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Upadacitinib (ABT-494) in Rheumatoid Arthritis Subjects

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a Phase 2, multicenter, open-label extension study in RA subjects. The sub-study is to assess the impact of upadacitinib treatment (15 mg QD and 30 mg QD) with background MTX on immunological responses to Prevnar 13® in RA patients.

  • Long Term Extension Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of Filgotinib in Adults With Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of filgotinib in participants who have completed one of the parent studies of filgotinib in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

  • Safety Study Of Tofacitinib Versus Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) Inhibitor In Subjects With Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This post-marketing study is designed to compare the safety of tofacitinib versus TNF inhibitor with respect to major cardiovascular adverse events and malignancies, excluding non-melanoma skin cancers when given to subjects with rheumatoid arthritis. Other safety events, including non-melanoma skin cancers, hepatic events, infections, and efficacy parameters will be collected and evaluated in the study.
