    Study WVE-003 in patients with early-stage Huntington’s disease

    This clinical trial is a study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), and pharmacodynamics (PD) of a new drug called WVE-003 in adult patients with early Huntington’s disease (HD). WVE-003 is a type of drug designed to target specific genetic sequences. In this case, it is targeting a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), known as SNP3, in Huntington’s disease patients. The drug is administered intrathecally, i.e., it is injected into the spinal canal.

    The study is double-blind, meaning neither patients nor researchers know who is receiving the actual drug and who is receiving the placebo. This helps ensure the results are impartial. The primary goal is to evaluate the safety of WVE-003 by monitoring the percentage of patients who experienced adverse events from day 1 to the end of the study, which lasts a minimum of 36 weeks.

  • Study comparing INBRX-101 and Zemaira for Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency-Related Emphysema

    This clinical study focuses on Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD), a genetic condition that can lead to lung diseases such as emphysema. AATD is caused by low levels of the protein alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT), which helps protect the lungs from damage.

    The study compares two treatments: INBRX-101, a new investigational drug, and a standard therapy using plasma-derived Alpha1-Proteinase Inhibitor (A1PI), commonly known as Zemaira. INBRX-101 is designed to maintain higher and more stable levels of AAT in the blood than current treatments, potentially providing better protection for the lungs over time.

    The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness, safety, and how the body processes these treatments. Participants will receive either INBRX-101 or the standard A1PI therapy, with neither the participants nor the doctors knowing which treatment each person is getting (this is called a double-blind study).

    Participants will go through a screening phase to ensure they meet the study criteria. If they are currently on other A1PI therapies, they will need a break period (washout phase) before starting the treatment phase, which lasts about 32 weeks. During this time, participants will receive their assigned treatment regularly and undergo various health assessments, including blood and urine tests, lung function tests, and imaging studies like CT scans. The study will also include some additional sub-studies to gather more detailed data on how the treatments work in the body.

    The study aims to gather important information that could lead to better treatment options for people with AATD and related lung diseases. It will help determine if INBRX-101 offers a significant improvement over the current standard treatment.

  • Study on combining two drugs – Fianlimab and Cemiplimab in patients with previously untreated melanoma

    This study examines two drugs, fianlimab and cemiplimab, given together for the treatment of melanoma. The main goal is to see how effective this drug combination is in treating melanoma compared with pembrolizumab, which is already approved for the treatment of melanoma in adults. The study will also look at whether there are any differences in the effects of these experimental drugs in adolescents and adults.

    Scientists also want to learn about other key issues: what side effects may occur from taking these experimental drugs, how much of the drugs enter the bloodstream over time, and whether the body produces antibodies to the drugs that could make them less effective or cause side effects. They will also check whether taking medications improves patients’ quality of life. Fianlimab and cemiplimab will be administered by intravenous infusion, and pembrolizumab will be administered by intravenous infusion.

  • Comparing ruxolitinib, hydroxycarbamide, and Interferon as first-line treatments for high-risk Polycythemia Vera

    The study, known as MITHRIDATE, investigates the effectiveness of the drug Ruxolitinib compared to either Hydroxycarbamide or Interferon Alpha for patients with high-risk Polycythemia Vera, a type of blood disorder. This Phase III clinical trial aims to determine which treatment is more effective in managing the disease without leading to additional health complications.

    Patients in the trial are assigned to receive either Ruxolitinib or the best available therapy, chosen from Hydroxycarbamide or Interferon Alpha, as decided by the overseeing doctors. The course of the study involves regular monitoring and assessments to evaluate the impact of these treatments on the disease’s progression and patients’ overall health and quality of life. The study is conducted in a controlled environment to ensure reliable results.

  • Testing Milvexian’s effectiveness in preventing repeat strokes

    This research trial, called LIBREXIA-STROKE, will test a medication called Milvexian on those who have recently had a stroke or a high-risk ‘mini-stroke’. In its 3rd testing phase, the study will involve a system where the patients won’t know whether they are receiving the actual drug or a substitute with no effect, referred to as a ‘placebo’, to maintain fairness. Milvexian is a medication that can potentially reduce the risk of having another stroke, and this trial aims to observe how effective it is in doing so. The trial will look at when the first stroke happens after starting the trial, if other major heart or limb diseases occur, or if strokes occur in the first 90 days.

  • Comparison of different treatments for follicular lymphoma

    This study involves comparing two treatments for a condition known as follicular or marginal zone lymphoma, both of which are types of cancer affecting lymph cells. The first treatment combines zanubrutinib with an antibody called Anti-CD20, while the second treatment involves lenalidomide and rituximab. These treatments are intended for patients who have not responded or have stopped responding to conventional treatment. One of the primary objectives of the study is to determine which treatment is more effective in preventing the cancer from progressing, referred to as progression-free survival. Additionally, the study aims to assess the impact of these treatments on the patients’ quality of life, evaluating various aspects through questionnaires related to physical and emotional well-being, symptoms, and the ability to perform normal activities.

  • Study on dazostinag & pembrolizumab for advanced solid tumors

    The purpose of this study is to test a new drug called dazostinag. A study is being conducted to see whether this drug is helpful in adults with advanced forms of solid cancer. Some people are given dazostinag alone, while others are given it with another medicine called pembrolizumab. Scientists’ focus here is on finding out whether these drugs cause any side effects, and finding out what the maximum dose is that people can take without serious side effects. The study consists of two parts, including a dose escalation phase and a dose escalation phase. In the first part, the dose of dazostinag will be gradually increased, given alone or in combination with pembrolizumab. In the second part, Dazostinag will be tested with pembrolizumab and other anticancer drugs. This section will focus on patients with specific cancers that are difficult to remove or have spread to other parts of the body.

  • Assessing olpasiran treatment for heart disease and elevated cholesterol

    Tests named ‘OCEAN(a)’ are being conducted, focusing on a medication called ‘olpasiran’. Put simply, the potential of this medication in preventing serious heart episodes in individuals with Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease and an elevated level of a fat protein, Lipoprotein(a), is under examination. The effect of a harmless, dummy pill (placebo) is compared to that of the actual medication, olpasiran, in individuals with these conditions. The primary goal is to determine whether olpasiran can reduce the risk of death due to heart disease, occurrence of heart attacks, or the necessity for sudden surgery to clear blocked heart vessels.
