    A study comparing upadacitinib versus adalimumab in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis

    This clinical trial is studying a new medication called upadacitinib for treating moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic condition that causes pain, stiffness, swelling, and loss of joint function. The study will compare upadacitinib, which is taken as an oral tablet once daily, to adalimumab (brand name Humira), which is an injection given under the skin every other week.

    The main goal is to see how effective upadacitinib is at reducing disease activity compared to adalimumab. The study will measure the percentage of participants who achieve a certain level of low disease activity based on a score called the DAS28-CRP, which looks at tender and swollen joints, overall disease activity, and inflammation levels.

    This is a double-blind study, meaning neither the participants nor the study doctors will know which treatment each participant is receiving. Participants will attend regular visits at a hospital or clinic for medical assessments, checking for side effects, and completing questionnaires. There may be a higher treatment burden compared to standard care. The study is designed to assess the safety and effectiveness of upadacitinib compared to adalimumab in treating moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Evaluating Ianalumab for active Sjogren’s syndrome

    The NEPTUNUS-2 study is a significant research project aimed at exploring the effectiveness and safety of a medication called ianalumab (VAY736) for individuals suffering from active Sjogren’s Syndrome. This study is designed as a three-arm, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, which means participants will be randomly assigned to one of three groups: two will receive ianalumab at different intervals, and one will receive a placebo, with neither the participants nor the researchers knowing which group participants are in to ensure unbiased results.

    The main goal of this study is to determine how well ianalumab can improve the symptoms of Sjogren’s Syndrome compared to a placebo. This will be measured by the change in a specific score called the EULAR Sjögren Syndrome Disease Activity Index (ESSDAI) from the start of the study to week 48. The ESSDAI score helps doctors understand how active the disease is, with a higher score indicating more active disease. A decrease in this score over time would suggest an improvement in the condition.

    Participants in this study will receive ianalumab injections either once a month or every three months, depending on the group they are assigned to. The study emphasizes not only the potential benefits of ianalumab in treating Sjogren’s Syndrome but also its safety and tolerability, ensuring that the treatment is not only effective but also safe for patients.

  • Secukinumab study for maintaining remission in axial spondyloarthritis

    The aim of this study is to see if a drug called Secukinumab can maintain remission in people with non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (a type of spondylitis). Remission means that there is no or very little disease in the body. To determine whether a person is in remission, we use a special scoring system that looks at various symptoms of arthritis and a blood test for a protein associated with inflammation (C-reactive protein, or CRP). The aim of the study is to see whether people who stop taking Secukinumab will experience an exacerbation (worsening of the disease) and how long it takes for this to happen. The study will last just over two years.

  • Comparing new drug-Cytarabine Danuorubicin with standard chemotheraphy in adults with Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    This study is comparing two types of strong medicine, or ‘chemotherapy’, used to treat a disease called Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). This disease can sometimes be harder to treat in some patients due to their genetics. In this study, some people will get the usual strong medicine, and some people will get a new type of strong medicine called CPX-351 (Cytarabine and Danuorubicin). The researchers will also look at who might get fully or almost fully better from the disease.This trial is investigating how a new kind of very strong drug, CPX-351, might work compared to the usual strong drug treatment for a blood cancer called Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). These drugs are used when someone has recently found out they have AML, and their body has certain genetic markers making it harder for usual treatments to work. This trial is also looking at different degrees of recovery. The treatments may work differently based on people’s genes.
