    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.

  • Long-term follow-up of patients with various types of leukemia, including CLL, SLL, HCL and others

    This is a comprehensive study focusing on the long-term follow-up of patients diagnosed with a variety of blood and lymph node cancers, including chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), B lymphocytic leukemia (B-PLL), T lymphocytic leukemia (T-PLL), small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), large granular T/Natural Killer (T or NK-LGL) leukemia, Hairy Cell Leukemia (HCL) and Richter’s transformation. This study aims to gather detailed information on the progression of these diseases, the effectiveness of treatment over time, and any long-term side effects or complications that may occur as a result of treatment.

    One of the key aims of this registry is to understand how therapies, particularly those involving the drug rituximab in combination with chemotherapy, affect patients’ overall survival. The study is particularly interested in long-term outcomes and any late toxicities that may occur as a result of treatment, such as secondary tumors or infections. This is important because, although some therapies can prolong life, they can also lead to other health problems in the future.

    The registry is unique because it focuses not only on CLL, but also on other rare lymphoproliferative malignancies that are closely related to CLL. There is a significant need for more information on these diseases, as they are considered orphan diseases and long-term follow-up data is scarce.

    For patients participating in this study, the main parameter measured is overall survival, meaning that the study will track how long patients live from inclusion in the registry until death. This information will be collected for up to 12 years, providing valuable insight into the long-term effects of treatment and progression of these diseases. This study is crucial for gaining a more profound understanding of CLL and related diseases, how to treat them effectively, and how to manage any long-term consequences of treatment. It represents an important step forward in improving care and outcomes for patients with these conditions.

  • Assessing imatinib inhalation therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension

    This clinical study aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an inhaled treatment called imatinib (AV-101) for patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). The trial is divided into two parts: Phase 2b and Phase 3. In Phase 2b, researchers will test three doses of AV-101 to identify the optimal dose for Phase 3. They will check this by measuring the resistance of the lung vessels — less resistance means the medicine is working. In the following Phase 3, the primary outcome will be the change in the 6-minute walk distance after 24 weeks of treatment compared to a placebo. Participants must be between 18 and 75 years old, have a diagnosis of PAH, and meet specific criteria regarding their disease severity and concomitant therapy.
