    Testing setmelanotide for weight loss in genetic obesity

    This study is a research project looking into the effectiveness of a medication called setmelanotide for people who are dealing with obesity due to specific genetic variations. This medication is given under the skin. The study is designed to see if setmelanotide can help people lose weight compared to a placebo, which don’t contain any active medication.

    The study focuses on individuals who have one of several gene variants in the Melanocortin-4 Receptor pathway. These variants include changes in the POMC or PCSK1 genes, the LEPR gene, the SRC1 gene, or the SH2B1 gene. Depending on which gene variant a participant has, they will be placed into one of four sub-studies.

    The main goal of this clinical trial is to measure how much weight participants lose while taking setmelanotide over a period of 52 weeks. This will be compared to the weight loss of participants who receive the placebo. The study is carefully controlled and blinded, meaning neither the participants nor the researchers will know who is receiving the actual medication and who is receiving the placebo until the study is completed.

    This trial is an important step in understanding how setmelanotide can help people with obesity linked to specific genetic factors, offering hope for a targeted treatment option.

  • Study of belzutifan for treating advanced cancers

    This clinical trial aim is to test out a new drug called belzutifan, also known as MK-6482 or WELIREG™. It’s a pill patient can take once a day, and the main goal is to see if it can shrink or get rid of tumors in folks with certain types of cancer.

    The cancers the researchers are looking at are pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma, which are tumors that start in the adrenal glands or nervous system. Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, tumors related to von Hippel-Lindau disease, advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumors, and other solid tumors with certain genetic changes that involve a protein called HIF-2α, there will be also tested.

    The big thing the researchers are  keeping an eye on is the objective response rate, which means how many folks see their tumors shrink or disappear completely while taking this drug. The researchers will be watching closely for any side effects too, of course, to make sure this new medicine is safe.

  • To study the effectiveness of mitotane in preventing cancer recurrence in patients with adrenocortical carcinoma

    The ADIUVO trial is focused on understanding the effectiveness of a treatment called mitotane in patients who have undergone surgery for a rare type of adrenocortical cancer. This cancer has a high chance of coming back after surgery, and previous research suggests that mitotane may help reduce this risk. However, it is important to confirm these results in a study in which patients are randomly assigned to receive mitotane or no additional treatment after surgery. This is particularly important for patients whose cancer is at low or intermediate risk of coming back because doctors need to be sure that the benefits of mitotane outweigh any side effects.

    In this study, the goal is to see if mitotane can help patients live longer without their cancer coming back. Doctors will also assess patients’ overall life expectancy, quality of life and any side effects that may occur as a result of treatment. In addition, they will check whether mitotane levels in the blood influence these results and whether there are differences in results depending on certain characteristics of the cancer.

    Treatment with mitotane will be started at a lower dose and gradually increased depending on your tolerability, with adjustments possible depending on blood levels and side effects. The main goal is to compare how long patients remain cancer-free after surgery, with particular emphasis on their overall well-being and any potential side effects of treatment.

  • Study on the effectiveness of Givinostat in Non-Walking Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Patients

    This clinical trial is focused on testing the effectiveness, safety, and how well patients can tolerate a medication called Givinostat for those who have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and can no longer walk. The study is designed for male pediatric patients aged between 9 to less than 18 years. A total of 138 participants will be involved, and they will be divided into two groups. One group will receive Givinostat, and the other group will receive a placebo, which is a substance with no therapeutic effect, designed to mimic Givinostat. This division will be done randomly and both the patients and the doctors will not know who is receiving the actual medication and who is receiving the placebo, making this a double-blind study.

    The main goal of this study is to see if Givinostat can help reduce muscle decline in patients with DMD who cannot walk, by looking at changes in upper limb function after 18 months of treatment. The safety and tolerability of Givinostat in these patients will also be closely monitored.

    Participants will be involved in the study for about 20 to 21 months, which includes a 4-week screening period to confirm eligibility, 18 months of treatment, and a follow-up period. At the end of the treatment period, all participants, regardless of which group they were in, will have the option to join a long-term safety study where they will receive Givinostat.
