    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.

  • Sparsentan Treatment Study for Children with Kidney Diseases

    We are excited to introduce a clinical trial focused on the study of Sparsentan treatment in children and adolescents with certain types of kidney diseases that lead to protein loss in urine, known as proteinuric glomerular diseases. This includes conditions like Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), Minimal Change Disease (MCD), Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy (IgAN), IgA Vasculitis (IgAV), and Alport Syndrome (AS).

    The main goal of this study is to understand how safe, effective, and tolerable Sparsentan is when given as an oral suspension or tablet. We are particularly interested in seeing how this treatment can change the levels of protein in the urine over a period of 108 weeks.

    This study is designed as a Phase 2, Open-Label, Single-Arm trial, meaning all participants will receive the treatment, and there will not be a comparison group receiving a placebo. We are looking to enroll approximately 67 pediatric subjects, aged 1 year to less than 18 years, who have been diagnosed with one of the specified conditions. The study is divided into three populations based on the specific disease and age groups, with different dosages of Sparsentan being tested across these groups.

    The safety of the participants will be closely monitored throughout the study, with a special focus on any treatment-emergent adverse events, serious adverse events, and any adverse events that may lead to discontinuation of the treatment. Additionally, we will measure the change in the urine protein/creatinine ratio (UP/C) from the start of the study to week 108 to assess the effectiveness of Sparsentan in reducing proteinuria.

    This study represents an important step towards finding a potentially effective treatment for children and adolescents suffering from these challenging kidney diseases. If you or your child are dealing with one of these conditions and are interested in participating, we encourage you to consider this unique opportunity.
