    Study on the use of Volixibat for the treatment of pruritus in patients with primary cholangitis (PBC)

    The purpose of this clinical trial is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an investigational drug called volixibat in patients with pruritus caused by primary cholangitis. The study aims to understand how volixibat affects the treatment of pruritus associated with this disease and to evaluate its possible effect on disease progression.

    Study participants will be randomly assigned to a group receiving volixibat or placebo. Volixibat will be administered as oral capsules twice daily. The main goal of the study is to measure the average change in daily pruritus scores using a special Adult Itch Reported Outcome (Adult ItchRO) questionnaire. Adult ItchRO is an 11-point scale for assessing pruritus severity, where 0 means no pruritus and 10 means the worst possible pruritus. The study will run from baseline to week 28.

  • New therapy trial for relapsed large B-cell lymphoma

    This study is testing the use of two different treatments for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), a type of blood cancer. Group One receives a mix of drugs, including polatuzumab vedotin, rituximab, ifosfamide, carboplatin, and etoposide (collectively called Pola-R-ICE). Group Two receives a similar mix without polatuzumab vedotin, known as R-ICE. Patients will be randomly sorted into the two groups. The test treatment spans three months and includes three chemotherapy treatments. After that, doctors will follow up with patients for at least 21 months. The goal is to compare how well the two treatments work to control DLBCL. Different factors, like progress of the disease, the response to treatment, and overall health will be observed to determine how efficient these treatments are.

  • Testing ravulizumab for transplant-related blood complications

    The study is examining a drug called ravulizumab used in adults and teenagers with a blood vessel disease called thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) after a bone marrow transplant. Sometimes, new cells growing after a bone marrow transplant can cause problems in the blood vessels leading to TMA. So this study will investigate whether ravulizumab can help in this situation. In the first stage, each participant will receive the drug to determine the best dose. In the second phase, some will receive ravulizumab and best supportive care, while others will receive placebo and best supportive care. After 26 weeks of treatment, doctors will continue to monitor and record the patients’ health for another 26 weeks. Special blood tests will be done to check if the medicine is working.

  • Comparing atogepant and topiramate for migraine prevention

    In this study, a comparison is being made between two different medicines aimed at preventing migraines in adults. Migraines manifest as severe headaches on one side of the head, accompanied by symptoms such as nausea, throbbing pain, or sensitivity to light and sound. The two medicines under comparison are named atogepant and topiramate. Atogepant is currently employed for migraine prevention in individuals experiencing migraines from 0 to 14 days per month, and the study seeks to evaluate its potential broader application. Topiramate is already widely utilized for migraine prevention. Participants in this study will be divided into two groups: one group will be administered atogepant, while the other will receive topiramate for a duration of 24 weeks. Following this period, those eligible to continue will all receive atogepant for an additional 52 weeks. The study will assess their progress and monitor any potential side effects.

  • Study of the effects of Durvalumab and Domvanalimab on non-small cell lung cancer

    This study looks at two drugs – Durvalumab and Domvanalimab – and how they may help people with a type of lung cancer that cannot be removed by surgery. These medicines are given to patients after special treatment combining chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The goal is to find out whether these drugs provide benefits and are safe to use. During the trial, patients will be given the real drug or a placebo (a substance that has no therapeutic effect), without knowing which one they will receive. The study will measure how long it takes for the disease to worsen, how long people live and how many people respond positively to treatment. This clinical trial is testing the effectiveness of Durvalumab and Domvanalimab – two drugs – in the treatment of stage III lung cancer that cannot be surgically removed. After undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy, participants will be given these drugs to assess their safety. The study is double-blind, meaning neither participants nor researchers know who is receiving the actual drug and who is receiving the placebo. The study will monitor whether the cancer gets worse and what the rate of positive reactions to the drugs is. A study is being conducted with two drugs, Durvalumab and Domvanalimab, for patients with advanced forms of lung cancer that cannot be treated with surgery. After undergoing combined chemotherapy and radiation therapy, participants receive these drugs. The study was designed so that neither the patient nor the doctor knew whether the correct drug or a placebo was being administered. The time until the disease worsens, how long participants live and the number of patients who see improvement with the drugs will be measured.

  • Drug study – AZD9833 in advanced HR+/HER2- breast cancer with ESR1 mutation

    The study focuses on advanced breast cancer, specifically hormone receptor-positive (HR-positive) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-negative) cases. These patients show an ESR1 gene mutation that might cause current treatments to stop working well. The body’s inability to control cell growth leads to tumors in the breast, and when these tumors spread to other parts of the body, it becomes advanced cancer.

    AZD9833, an unapproved trial drug, will be compared with two existing treatments: palbociclib, abemaciclib, and ribociclib (which block tumor growth), and letrozole and anastrozole (aromatase inhibitors, AI), to see if it works better when combined with palbociclib, abemaciclib, or ribociclib in patients with the ESR1 mutation.

    Participants will either continue their current combination of AI and CDK4/6 inhibitor or switch to AZD9833 and a CDK4/6 inhibitor. The goal is to see which combination is better at extending the time before the cancer gets worse and to learn more about AZD9833’s safety.

    Participants in this trial will have been receiving combinations of an AI and a CDK4/6 inhibitor beforehand. During the trial, they will remain on the same CDK4/6 inhibitor.

    Participants will be split into two groups: Group A will receive AZD9833, a CDK4/6 inhibitor, and a placebo. Group B will receive an AI, a CDK4/6 inhibitor, and a placebo.

    The treatments will be taken daily in 28-day cycles as follows: either AZD9833 or an AI plus the placebo. If taking abemaciclib: twice daily for 28 days. If taking palbociclib or ribociclib: once daily for 21 days, followed by a 7-day break. This 28-day cycle will repeat for the duration of participation in the trial.

  • Evaluating a new treatment for challenging solid tumors in a multi-stage trial

    In the IMA402 study, doctors want to test a new treatment for patients with solid tumors that haven’t responded to other treatments or have returned. The treatment involves a drug called IMA402 that focuses on PRAME, a molecule that is often seen in these types of cancers. The study aims to understand the safest and highest amount of IMA402 that can be safely given to patients (Phase I) and also to discover whether this treatment can effectively fight against cancer (Phase II). To better understand how the drug impacts patients, the trial is split into three stages with varying doses. The goal is to eventually find a dose that can help patients with hard-to-treat solid tumors.
