Hepatitis C Clinical Research Studies

You can help NIAID advance hepatitis research by volunteering to participate in a clinical study. There is no charge for study-related medical care, including study visits, medications, treatments, and procedures. Volunteers may be compensated for time and travel.

The following are selected studies supported by NIAID and recruiting people with hepatitis C. The links lead to full study titles, descriptions, and contact information. 

Effects of Persistent Innate Immune Activation on Vaccine Efficacy (NCT02429583) 
This study will investigate the effects of chronic HCV infection and corresponding innate immune activation on the immune response to HBV vaccination to enhance our understanding of the immune effects of chronic viral infection, establish factors that determine effective vaccine responses, and help guide vaccination strategies for HCV patients and other individuals with chronic inflammatory disease.

Monitoring SOF/VEL in Treatment Naïve, HCV Participants With Active Infection (MINMON) (NCT03512210)
This study is trying to see whether taking an HCV treatment with fewer clinic visits and laboratory tests can cure just as many people as the standard approach that uses more visits and laboratory tests.
