    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 assessing the effectiveness of Tebentafusp administered alone and in combination with Pembrolizumab in the treatment of advanced melanoma

    The aim of this study is to test new treatments for people with advanced skin melanoma that does not respond well to other therapies. The main focus was on a new experimental drug called tebentafusp, which is a special type of protein that helps the body’s immune system recognize and attack cancer cells.

    The study divided patients into three different groups. One group will receive tebentafusp alone. Another group will receive tebentafusp in combination with another immunotherapy drug called pembrolizumab. The third group will receive the treatment that the doctor thinks is best for the patient – this could be another experimental drug, standard therapy, or simply supportive care.

    Scientists are primarily focusing on the effectiveness of these treatments in shrinking tumors and extending patient survival. They will also monitor closely for any side effects to make sure the treatment is safe. The study is expected to last about two years and will include frequent check-ins to monitor patient responses.

  • 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.
