    Study on Secukinumab for Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy

    This here clinical trial is aimin’ to see if a new medicine called secukinumab can help folks with moderate to severe rotator cuff tendinopathy, which is a painful condition affectin’ the shoulder. The study will compare secukinumab to a placebo, which is like a fake medicine with no active ingredients.

    Now, if you join this trial, you’ll be given either secukinumab or the placebo by injection under the skin every week for the first month, and then once a month after that for another couple of months. The doctors will be keepin’ a close eye on your shoulder symptoms like pain, weakness, stiffness, and any mechanical issues you might be havin’.

    The main thing they’ll be lookin’ at is how much your physical shoulder symptoms improve after 16 weeks of treatment with secukinumab compared to the placebo. They’ll be usin’ a special questionnaire called the Western Ontario Rotator Cuff Index to measure them symptoms.

    Now, durin’ the trial, you’ll need to keep takin’ any anti-inflammatory medicines you’re already on, and keep up with your physical therapy exercises too. But you won’t be allowed to get no steroid injections or increase your medicine doses without the doctors’ say-so.

    After the 16 weeks of treatment, there’ll be another 8 weeks where the doctors will check if the effects of the medicine are lastin’. So in total, you’d be in the study for around 6 months if you join up.

  • NCT04305054

    This here clinical trial, called KEYMAKER-U02 Substudy 02B, is aimin’ to test some new experimental treatments for melanoma, which is a type of skin cancer. The main goal is to see if these new treatments are safe an’ effective when used alone or combined with the drug pembrolizumab.

    Now, the trial has several different “arms” or treatment groups. Some groups are gettin’ pembrolizumab combined with other investigational drugs like vibostolimab, quavonlimab, lenvatinib, favezelimab, or ATRA. Other groups are just gettin’ pembrolizumab by itself.

    The researchers will be keepin’ a close eye on things like dose-limiting toxicities an’ adverse events to make sure the treatments are safe. They’ll also be lookin’ at how well the treatments work by measurin’ things like the objective response rate, which shows if the tumors are shrinkin’ or disappearin’.

    If you’re interested in joinin’ this trial, you’ll wanna ask your doctor about the potential risks an’ benefits, an’ whether you might be a good fit for one of them treatment arms. Just remember, this here is an experimental study, so the treatments ain’t approved yet for regular use.

  • Study of the drug combination mRNA-4157/V940 and Pembrolizumab in the treatment of melanoma

    The aim of this clinical trial is to test whether a new drug called mRNA-4157/V940 in combination with pembrolizumab can help prevent the recurrence of melanoma in people who have already had it. Currently, mRNA-4157/V940 is what is called “individualized neoantigen therapy,” which means it is a therapy created specifically for each patient based on their cancer cells. Doctors give this drug along with pembrolizumab, a drug that helps the immune system fight cancer cells.

    The main goal of this study is to determine whether taking V940 and pembrolizumab together is more effective in preventing melanoma recurrence than taking pembrolizumab alone. Researchers will closely monitor how long it takes for the cancer to return or spread. The study will last for approximately 74 months.

  • A study comparing upadacitinib versus adalimumab in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis

    This clinical trial is studying a new medication called upadacitinib for treating moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic condition that causes pain, stiffness, swelling, and loss of joint function. The study will compare upadacitinib, which is taken as an oral tablet once daily, to adalimumab (brand name Humira), which is an injection given under the skin every other week.

    The main goal is to see how effective upadacitinib is at reducing disease activity compared to adalimumab. The study will measure the percentage of participants who achieve a certain level of low disease activity based on a score called the DAS28-CRP, which looks at tender and swollen joints, overall disease activity, and inflammation levels.

    This is a double-blind study, meaning neither the participants nor the study doctors will know which treatment each participant is receiving. Participants will attend regular visits at a hospital or clinic for medical assessments, checking for side effects, and completing questionnaires. There may be a higher treatment burden compared to standard care. The study is designed to assess the safety and effectiveness of upadacitinib compared to adalimumab in treating moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Study on Ravulizumab’s effect on Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy

    The study is looking into the effectiveness of a medication called ravulizumab for adults who have a kidney condition known as Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy (IgAN). This condition can lead to kidney damage over time, and the study aims to find out if ravulizumab can help reduce the amount of protein lost in urine—a common problem in IgAN—and slow down the decrease in kidney function.

    In this study, about 450 participants who are at a high risk of their disease getting worse will be chosen. These participants must have been on stable treatment for their IgAN for at least three months before the study starts. They will then receive either ravulizumab or a placebo, which is a treatment with no active drug, through an IV infusion based on their weight. The main goal is to see if those who receive ravulizumab have a significant improvement in their condition compared to those who receive the placebo.

    The study will have two main checkpoints. The first one, at Week 34, will check how much protein is in the urine, and the second one, at Week 106, will assess how well the kidneys are filtering waste from the blood. Additionally, a smaller group of participants with more advanced kidney issues will receive ravulizumab to further explore its effects.

    After the study ends at Week 106, participants will have the option to continue receiving ravulizumab in a follow-up period to see how long-term treatment affects their condition. This study is a chance for people with IgAN to potentially slow down their disease progression and improve their quality of life.

    Are you undergoing a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) or MitraClip procedure? If so, you might be interested in a study focused on managing and predicting hypotension, a common issue during these procedures. The study is called “Is The Hypotension Probability Indicator With Goal Directed Haemodynamic Treatment Useful In Predicting And Treating Hypotension In Patients Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) or MitraClip.”

    During surgery, it’s not uncommon for blood pressure to drop, a condition known as hypotension. This can lead to complications like acute kidney injury or myocardial injury. To address this, researchers are exploring a new approach using a tool called the Hypotension Probability Indicator (HPI). Developed by Edwards Lifesciences, the HPI uses continuous monitoring to predict drops in blood pressure before they happen, allowing for quicker responses to prevent hypotension.

    The study aims to see if using the HPI, along with a specific treatment plan focused on maintaining stable blood flow and pressure, can reduce the occurrence of hypotension and improve outcomes for patients undergoing TAVI or MitraClip procedures. This approach is based on the idea that managing blood pressure more effectively during surgery can help avoid complications and improve recovery.

    Participation in this study would involve monitoring your blood pressure closely during your procedure using the HPI tool, along with a tailored treatment plan to manage your blood pressure. The main thing researchers are looking at is how much time is spent with low blood pressure during the surgery and how the new approach might reduce this time.

    If you’re interested in potentially improving your surgery experience and contributing to research that could help others in the future, this study might be a good fit for you.

  • Testing the efficacy of teclistamab vs other drugs for relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma treatment

    The study is evaluating a treatment for a blood cancer known as multiple myeloma. Two different treatments are being compared to assess their effectiveness in both slowing down the disease and minimizing side effects. The first treatment involves a single medicine called teclistamab, while the second offers a choice between two combinations of multiple medicines (either PVd – pomalidomide, bortezomib, dexamethasone or Kd – carfilzomib, dexamethasone). Both treatments have been previously administered to individuals with similar conditions. Individuals who have undergone prior treatment, including the use of an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody and lenalidomide, but experienced a recurrence or lack of resolution of the disease, are eligible to participate in this study. The objective is to determine the duration it takes for the disease to progress under different treatments. Additionally, the study will monitor changes in health and potential medication-related issues through regular check-ups.
