    Investigating efficacy and safety of new therapy in early-stage Parkinson’s disease

    This clinical trial aims to examine BIIB122, a new medication considered to potentially slow down the progression of early-stage Parkinson’s disease in patients aged between 30–80 years old. Participants will undergo treatment with either BIIB122 or a placebo equal in appearance but devoid of actual medicine. The trial’s routine includes a single daily medication intake for a timeframe between 48 and 144 weeks. To evaluate the medication’s efficacy, patients’ symptoms and their impact on everyday life will be observed using the Movement Disorder Society-Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS). In addition to this, safety assessment of BIIB122 will be a main focus of the study. The trial treats this as a double-blind study, anonymizing whether a patient takes the BIIB122 drug or a placebo.

  • Comparing atogepant and topiramate for migraine prevention

    In this study, a comparison is being made between two different medicines aimed at preventing migraines in adults. Migraines manifest as severe headaches on one side of the head, accompanied by symptoms such as nausea, throbbing pain, or sensitivity to light and sound. The two medicines under comparison are named atogepant and topiramate. Atogepant is currently employed for migraine prevention in individuals experiencing migraines from 0 to 14 days per month, and the study seeks to evaluate its potential broader application. Topiramate is already widely utilized for migraine prevention. Participants in this study will be divided into two groups: one group will be administered atogepant, while the other will receive topiramate for a duration of 24 weeks. Following this period, those eligible to continue will all receive atogepant for an additional 52 weeks. The study will assess their progress and monitor any potential side effects.

  • Study of drug combinations for advanced lung cancer

    This study is about a new combination of medical treatments, Datopotamab Deruxtecan (Dato-DXd) plus Durvalumab and Carboplatin, intended to help people with severe lung cancer (NSCLC). This type of lung cancer lacks specific alterations in its genes that can be targeted by other forms of treatment. The scientists are testing whether this new combination of medicines can be better than another common treatment combination, Pembrolizumab and platinum-based chemotherapy. The researchers will measure the time people can live without their disease getting worse (Progression Free Survival or PFS) and the total time they survive (Overall Survival or OS) to check which treatment is superior. These periods will be monitored with special criterias set up by the medical community. The study will also observe how long people respond to the treatment (Duration of Response or DoR) and how many have an observable reaction to the treatment (Objective Response Rate or ORR). Additionally, they will be analyzing the concentration of Dato-DXd and other components in the blood to inspect the body’s interaction with this treatment.
