COVID-19 clinical trials at UC Irvine

7 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

  • Exercise in Child Health

    open to eligible people ages 10-17

    This study is a cooperative investigation funded by the NIH. The project is a collaboration among three major NIH Clinical Translational Science Awardees: 1) UCI (lead site with its affiliate CHOC), 2) Northwestern University (with its affiliate Lurie Children's Hospital), and 3) USC (with its affiliate Children's Hospital of Los Angeles). There is an increasing number of children who, through medical advances, now survive diseases and conditions that were once fatal, but which remain chronic and debilitating. A major challenge to improve both the immediate and long term care and health of such children has been the gap in our understanding of how to assess the biological effects of exercise. Like otherwise healthy children, children with chronic diseases and disabilities want to be physically active. The challenge is to determine what constitutes safe and beneficial level of physical activity when the underlying disease or condition [e.g., cystic fibrosis (CF) or sickle cell disease (SCD)] imposes physiological constraints on exercise that are not present in otherwise healthy children. Current exercise testing protocols were based on studies of athletes and high performing healthy individuals and were designed to test limits of performance at very high-intensity, unphysiological, maximal effort. These approaches are not optimal for children and adolescents with disease and disability. This project (REACH-Revamping Exercise Assessment in Child Health) is designed to address this gap. Cohorts of children will be identified with two major genetic diseases (CF and SCD) and measure exercise responses annually as they progress from early puberty to mid or late puberty over a 3-4year period. In addition, in the light of the pandemic, a group of children will be added who were affected by SARS-CoV-2 and investigate their responses to exercise. SARS-CoV-2 has similar long-term symptoms than CF and SCD have. Novel approaches to assessing physiological responses to exercise using advanced data analytics will be examined in relation to metrics of habitual physical activity, circulating biomarkers of inflammation and growth, leukocyte gene expression, and the impact of the underlying CF, SCD or SARS-CoV-2 condition. The data from this study will help to develop a toolkit of innovative metrics for exercise testing that will be made available to the research and clinical community.

  • I-SPY COVID-19 TRIAL: An Adaptive Platform Trial for Critically Ill Patients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The goal of this project is to rapidly screen promising agents, in the setting of an adaptive platform trial, for treatment of critically ill COVID-19 patients. In this phase 2 platform design, agents will be identified with a signal suggesting a big impact on reducing mortality and the need for, as well as duration, of mechanical ventilation.

  • Reparixin add-on Therapy to Std Care to Limit Progression in Pts With COVID19 & Other Community Acquired Pneumonia

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Primary objective: - To evaluate the efficacy of oral reparixin versus standard care alone in limiting disease progression in adult patients hospitalised for infectious pneumonia acquired in the community (CAP), including COVID-19. Secondary objectives: - To determine the effect of reparixin on several disease severity/progression measures including recovery, ventilatory free days and mortality. Safety objectives: - To evaluate the safety of oral reparixin versus placebo in the specific clinical setting.

  • Mushroom-based Product for COVID-19

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to evaluate two polypore mushrooms, Fomitopsis officinalis and Trametes versicolor (FoTv), to treat COVID-19-positive outpatients with mild-to-moderate symptoms assigned to self-quarantined and home management. The study aims to establish the safety and feasibility of the use of FoTv vs placebo in 66 total subjects.

  • Role of Glutathione Deficiency and MSIDS Variables in Long COVID-19

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The purpose of this research study is to assess if glutathione, along with NAC (N-acetyl cysteine) and Alpha lipoic acid (ALA), can help reverse some of the COVID long-haul symptoms.Subjects will be randomized in to one of two groups. Depending on the group they are randomized in to, subjects will be taking either a combination of NAC, Alamax CR, and liposomal GSH or the same three nutritional supplements with a multivitamin and magnesium. Regardless of the group, subjects will be asked questions to assess their COVID symptoms, physical and mental health status. They will also be asked to take blood samples.

  • Immune Response to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Vaccines in Patients With Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia or Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study evaluates the immune response to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) vaccines in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL). CLL and SLL are types of blood cancer that begin in cells of the immune system. CLL/SLL and the medications used to treat these conditions may change the way vaccines work in a patient's body. The purpose of this study is to find out if patients with CLL/SLL make antibodies, or have an immune response, to the SARS-CoV-2 vaccines. Information gained from this study may help researchers better understand how effective the vaccines work in preventing COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) in patients with CLL and SLL.

  • NCI COVID-19 in Cancer Patients, NCCAPS Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study collects blood samples, medical information, and medical images from patients who are being treated for cancer and have a positive test for SARS CoV-2, the new coronavirus that causes the disease called COVID-19. Collecting blood samples, medical information, and medical images may help researchers determine how COVID-19 affects the outcomes of patients undergoing cancer treatment and how having cancer affects COVID-19.
