    Study of the safety and effectiveness of GLSI-100 in patients with HER2-positive breast cancer

    The study concerns the treatment of patients with HER2/neu-positive breast cancer. Treatment will include GLSI-100 immunotherapy and comparison to placebo. GLSI-100 consists of GP2 peptide and GM-CSF, protein substances that are designed to strengthen the body’s immune response, i.e. natural protection against diseases.

    The aim of this study is to determine how effective and safe GLSI-100 therapy is compared to placebo in preventing breast cancer recurrence after standard treatment. The study is aimed at people at high risk of disease recurrence who have completed both preoperative and postoperative therapy based on trastuzumab, a drug used to treat breast cancer.

    The study will assess invasive breast cancer-free survival (i.e. the time from the first dose of the drug to the moment of disease recurrence or death from any cause), invasive disease-free survival (i.e. the time from the first dose of the drug to the moment of any disease recurrence or new cancer), remote disease (i.e. time until disease recurrence in a place other than the breast or death).

    The study also includes an assessment of the participants’ quality of life both at the beginning and over the next 36 months, as well as an analysis of the body’s immune response to treatment.

  • 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.

  • Study on the effectiveness and safety of Ianalumab for treating Warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia

    This clinical trial is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a drug called ianalumab in patients with warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (wAIHA) who have not responded to at least one previous treatment. The study aims to determine if ianalumab can induce and maintain a durable hemoglobin response compared to a placebo.

    Participants will be randomly assigned to receive one of two different doses of ianalumab or a placebo. If a participant assigned to the placebo group does not respond to the treatment, they may be given ianalumab in an open-label manner, meaning both the participant and the doctor will know they are receiving the drug.

    The investigational treatment will be administered through an intravenous (i.v.) infusion. During the study, participants will have regular visits every other week during the treatment period and primary endpoint follow-up period. For safety monitoring, visits will occur monthly for the first 20 weeks after the last dose and then quarterly for up to two years. If a participant achieves a durable response, additional monthly visits for efficacy will continue for the first two years after the last dose, followed by quarterly visits until the loss of response or the end of the study, which could be up to 39 months after the last participant is randomized.

    The primary goal is to see if ianalumab can achieve a durable hemoglobin response, defined as a hemoglobin level of at least 10 g/dL and an increase of at least 2 g/dL from baseline for a period of at least eight consecutive weeks between weeks 9 and 25, without the need for rescue medication or prohibited treatment.

    This study offers hope for patients with wAIHA who have not found success with other treatments, providing a potential new option to manage their condition.

  • Study Comparing Asciminib and Nilotinib for Newly Diagnosed Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    This study examines the effects and tolerance of two drugs, asciminib and nilotinib, for treating a specific type of leukemia called Philadelphia Chromosome Positive Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in its chronic phase. The participants are adults who have been newly diagnosed and have not received previous treatment for this condition. They will be randomly assigned to receive either asciminib or nilotinib. The study aims to see which drug is better tolerated and how effective they are. Throughout the study, participants will be monitored for any side effects and the progress of their treatment until they either experience significant side effects, the disease progresses, or they decide to stop the treatment. Follow-up checks will also be conducted after the treatment ends.

  • 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.

  • Testing New Therapies for Glioblastoma Brain Cancer

    Howdy there, partner! This here trial is called the GBM AGILE study, and it’s aiming to find better treatments for a type of brain cancer called glioblastoma. Now, glioblastoma is a real tough customer, but this study is taking a new approach by testing multiple therapies all at once, both for newly diagnosed cases and for those where the cancer has come back.

    The main goal is to find treatments that work better and can be matched to different types of glioblastoma. The study uses a fancy method called Bayesian response adaptive randomization to assign folks to different treatment arms based on how well those treatments are performing. The most important measure they’re looking at is overall survival – how long patients live after starting treatment.

    Some of the therapies being tested include drugs like temozolomide, lomustine, regorafenib, paxalisib, VAL-083, VT1021, and troriluzole. These come in different forms like capsules, tablets, or infusions, and the dosages and schedules vary depending on the drug. The study is set up so that new promising therapies can be added in, and ones that aren’t working so well can be removed as the trial goes on.

    Testing the safety and efficacy of Rapcabtagene autoleucel in combination with ibrutinib for the treatment of various leukemia

    This study is looking at a new drug called rapcabtagene autoleucel in people with different types of blood cancer. The treatment is divided into two phases. In phase I, the study is testing the safety and efficacy of the new treatment in three different patient groups. The first group is adults with CLL/SLL, a type of blood cancer that has not shown a good response to the drug ibrutinib. The second group is adults with DLBCL, another type of blood cancer, who have failed at least two other treatments and who are unable or unwilling to undergo a stem cell transplant. The third group is adults with ALL, another type of blood cancer, who have not responded to other treatments. Phase II extends Phase I, focusing on the two main groups. The aim of this part is to obtain additional information on the efficacy of the new treatment. The aim of both phases is to determine the best dose of rapcabtagene autoleucel, to see how safe it is and how well it works against these tumors. After the treatment part of the study is completed, patients will be followed up for at least two years to monitor their health status and the long-term effects of the treatment.

  • 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 tozorakimab’s effect on chronic lung disease symptoms

    This study is all about testing a new drug, Tozorakimab, for people who have COPD – a lung disease that makes it difficult to breathe—and have had a bad flare-up in the past year. The researchers will give some people the new drug and some people a placebo (a dummy treatment) and see which works best. The drug is delivered in a shot under the skin, and all the people in the study will also keep taking their usual COPD medicines. The main things the researchers will be looking at are whether the new drug can reduce the number of flare-ups, improve quality of life (measured using a questionnaire), reduce the need for rescue medication and if it changes the results of breathing tests.
