Primary Biliary Cholangitis clinical trials at UC Davis

3 research studies open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Study of Elafibranor in Patients With Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC)

    “Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    The main objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of daily oral administration of 80mg elafibranor on cholestasis (impairment of bile formation and/or bile accumulation) in patients with PBC and inadequate response or intolerance to Ursodeoxycholic Acid (UCDA)

  • A Study of Experimental Obeticholic Acid For Primary Biliary Cholangitis (inflammation and scarring of liver bile ducts)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC) is a serious, life-threatening, bile acid related liver disease of unknown cause. Without treatment, it frequently progresses to liver fibrosis and eventual cirrhosis requiring liver transplantation or resulting in death. The investigational drug, Obeticholic Acid (OCA) is a modified bile acid and FXR agonist that is derived from the primary human bile acid chenodeoxycholic acid. The key mechanisms of action of OCA, including its choleretic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fibrotic properties, underlie its hepatoprotective effects and result in attenuation of injury and improved liver function in a cholestatic liver disease such as PBC. The study will assess the effect of OCA compared to placebo, combined with stable standard care, on clinical outcomes in PBC patients.

  • A Study of Investigational Seladelpar in Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC)

    “Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    To evaluate the treatment effect of seladelpar on composite biochemical improvement in cholestasis markers based on ALP and total bilirubin and to evaluate the safety of seladelpar over 12 months of treatment compared to placebo
