Studies

Crossing the Quality Chasm for Men under age 55 (CQC55)

The goal of this research is to improve hypertension control, diabetes control, and colorectal cancer screening rates among younger men within KPNC. We will start by conducting focus groups with Black, Filipino, and Latino men aged 40-55 to identify barriers and facilitators to chronic disease management and age-appropriate cancer screening. During years 3 and 4, we will use focus group findings to develop multi-modal tailored messaging strategies, or physician and staff communication training. We will evaluate these interventions in trials, assessing the impact on HTN control, T2DM control, and CRC screening rates among younger Black, Filipino, and Latino men.

A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Phase 3 Trial of the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of a Single Oral Administration of CP101 for the Prevention of Recurrent Clostridioides difficile Infection (PRISM4)

Phase 3 trial will evaluate the efficacy of CP101 treatment relative to placebo in adults with previously treated recurrent Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) and evaluate the safety and tolerability of CP101 treatment compared to placebo in adults with previously treated recurrent CDI.

Comparative Effectiveness Trial of Non-invasive vs. Invasive Strategies (FIT vs Colonoscopy) for Older Adults with a History of Pre-neoplastic Colon Polyps

This comparative effectiveness trial will evaluate detection of significant neoplasia between the strategies of low threshold annual FIT vs. colonoscopy for older adults with a history of colon polyps. We will investigate whether the FIT strategy is non-inferior to colonoscopy in detecting CRC and advanced colorectal neoplasia over 5 years of follow-up and whether fewer colonoscopies are needed to detect CRC using FIT vs. colonoscopy. We will also compare complication rates and patient experience between the FIT and colonoscopy strategies to see whether those in the FIT strategy will have less complications compared to the colonoscopy strategy and whether the FIT strategy will be more convenient and tolerable compared to the colonoscopy strategy.

Evaluating Acceptance and Screening Yield for Early Colorectal Cancer Screening: (EASY Early CRC)

Three national guideline groups now recommend that all adults start colorectal cancer (CRC) screening at age 45. Before 2018, some guideline groups only recommended African Americans begin CRC screening at age 45. There is currently no empirical evidence of the value of screening before age 50. The only evidence comes from modeling studies and observational data collected in cancer registries, such as SEER. This project will evaluate the acceptance, uptake, and yield of mailed FIT screening among KP members in Northern California, Southern California, Washington, and Colorado. The findings will help National Guideline Directors make a recommendation to the Permanente Medical Groups and the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan about starting CRC screening at age 45.

PREEMPT CRC: Prevention of Colorectal Cancer Through Multiomics Blood Testing

The primary objectives of this study are to determine the sensitivity and specificity of Freenome’s test for colorectal adenocarcinoma, using screening CS with histopathology as the reference method.

Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Prevalence and Associated Mortality (NAFLD PAM)

This study will investigate the incremental yield of using radiology imaging report information to diagnose non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) compared to International Classification of Disease, Ninth/Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification diagnoses alone in adult Kaiser Permanente Northern California members between 2009-2018, and whether the use of the Dallas Steatosis Index identifies additional individuals at high risk for NAFLD. The study will also and look at whether patients with NAFLD are at increased risk for all-cause mortality compared to the general population.

COVID-19 Pandemic: Impact on Colorectal Cancer Screening and Adenoma Surveillance Outcomes (PICASO)

The goal of this project is to evaluate the impact of the COVID pandemic on colorectal cancer screening and surveillance activities, and the impact on outcomes such as colorectal cancer incidence and stage.

Investigator: Levin, Theodore

PREDICT PCCC: PREDICTing Post Colonoscopy Colorectal Cancer

We are using post-polypectomy surveillance, an increasingly common indication for colonoscopy in clinical practice at TPMG and across the United States, as a model for how we might risk-stratify patients for care. Patients and physicians desire more precise estimates of risk for cancer after the removal of benign colorectal polyps to guide when they should have repeat surveillance with colonoscopy. We aim to evaluate a traditional risk prediction model compared with a deep learning model to improve the accuracy of risk scoring for post-colonoscopy colorectal cancer and guide personalized care

PRISM-EXT: An Open-Label Extension of CP101 Trials Evaluating Oral Full-Spectrum Microbiota (CP101) in Subjects with Recurrence of Clostridium difficile Infection

This study evaluates the safety and efficacy in reducing recurrence of Clostridium difficile infection in adults who had a recurrence within 8 weeks of receiving CP101 or placebo in PRISM3. Subjects who are experiencing recurrent Clostridium difficile infection will undergo screening procedures. Subjects who meet eligibility criteria will be eligible to be enrolled in the extension study and administered CP101.

A Multicenter Phase 2 Study of the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of Oral Full-Spectrum Microbiota (CP101) in Subjects with Recurrence of Clostridium Difficile Infection

The objectives of this Phase 2 study are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of CP101 treatment compared to placebo in adults with previously treated, recurrent Clostridium difficile infection, and to evaluate the efficacy of CP101 treatment relative to placebo in adults with previously treated, recurrent Clostridium difficile infection.

Outreach for Colorectal Cancer Screening in African Americans Aged 45 to 49

This study aims to 1) evaluate uptake of fecal immunochemical testing among African Americans aged 45 to 49 who receive outreach for such testing by mail, 2) examine the yield of screening results, including advanced adenomas and colon cancers, and 3) describe adverse events of screening among this population and compare them to those seen in people aged 50 to 55.
