Prosthetic Joint Infection clinical trials at UCLA

3 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Second Trial of the Abbreviated Protocol Two-Stage Exchange

    open to eligible people ages 22-84

    Apex-2 is a multi-site, parallel group, randomized trial. Patients will be randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio to the Experimental Arm or the Control Arm. The objective of the study is to evaluate safety and determine efficacy of the VT-X7 system. Efficacy is evaluated as superiority of the Experimental Arm in a composite endpoint of Overall Success at 180 days, consisting of a revision prosthesis implanted at Stage 2, absence of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI), absence of continued antibiotic therapy for treatment or prophylaxis of PJI, absence of revision surgery and absence of mortality. Secondary objectives are to evaluate overall success at 365 days, overall safety of the VT-X7 procedure, quality of life (QoL), and patient survival. The exploratory objective is to compare Experimental and Control Arms in exploratory endpoints. Follow-up: Patients will be evaluated at 90-, 180-, and 365-day follow-up visits.

  • Activity of TRL1068 in Prosthetic Joint Infections

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    TRL1068 is expected to eliminate the pathogen-protecting biofilm in the prosthetic joint and surrounding tissue, thus making these pathogens substantially more susceptible to established antibiotic treatment regimens. This initial study is designed to assess overall safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of TRL1068. The overall goal of the development program is to demonstrate that TRL1068 can facilitate effectiveness of a single stage joint replacement or preservation of the original infected prosthetic joint in a substantial proportion of patients with PJI.

  • Abbreviated Protocol for Two-Stage Exchange

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Study Type: A multi-site, parallel group, randomized trial. Study Objectives: The objective is to evaluate safety and determine preliminary efficacy of VT-X7. Efficacy is evaluated as superiority of the Experimental Arm in a composite endpoint of Overall Success at 90 days, consisting of a revision prosthesis implanted at Stage 2, patient survival, absence of reoperation and absence of PJI. Secondary objectives are to evaluate superiority at 365 days in a composite endpoint of Overall Success, and in separate secondary endpoints for quality of life (QoL) and patient survival. The exploratory objective is to compare Experimental and Control Arms in exploratory endpoints. Follow-up: Patients will be evaluated at 90-, 180-, and 365-day follow-up visits.
