Respiratory Distress Syndrome clinical trials at UC Irvine

3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Efficacy and Safety Study of IV Ravulizumab in Patients With COVID-19 Severe Pneumonia

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of ravulizumab administered in adult patients with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) severe pneumonia, acute lung injury, or acute respiratory distress syndrome. Patients will be randomly assigned to receive ravulizumab in addition to best supportive care (BSC) (2/3 of the patients) or BSC alone (1/3 of the patients). Best supportive care will consist of medical treatment and/or medical interventions per routine hospital practice.

  • Intravenous Aviptadil for Critical COVID-19 With Respiratory Failure

    open to eligible people ages 18-100

    Novel Corona Virus (SARS-CoV-2) is known to cause Respiratory Failure, which is the hallmark of Acute COVID-19, as defined by the new NIH/FDA classification. Approximately 50% of those who develop Critical COVID-19 die, despite intensive care and mechanical ventilation. Patients with Critical COVID-19 and respiratory failure, currently treated with high flow nasal oxygen, non-invasive ventilation or mechanical ventilation will be treated with Aviptadil, a synthetic form of Human Vasoactive Intestinal Polypeptide (VIP) plus maximal intensive care vs. placebo + maximal intensive care. Patients will be randomized to intravenous Aviptadil will receive escalating doses from 50 -150 pmol/kg/hr over 12 hours.

  • Early Caffeine and LISA Compared to Caffeine and CPAP in Preterm Infants

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study is being conducted to determine whether prophylactic administration of surfactant by the Less Invasive Surfactant Administration (LISA) method reduces the need for mechanical ventilation in the first 72 hours of life when compared to early Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) alone.
