    Study on the effectiveness of Givinostat in Non-Walking Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Patients

    This clinical trial is focused on testing the effectiveness, safety, and how well patients can tolerate a medication called Givinostat for those who have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and can no longer walk. The study is designed for male pediatric patients aged between 9 to less than 18 years. A total of 138 participants will be involved, and they will be divided into two groups. One group will receive Givinostat, and the other group will receive a placebo, which is a substance with no therapeutic effect, designed to mimic Givinostat. This division will be done randomly and both the patients and the doctors will not know who is receiving the actual medication and who is receiving the placebo, making this a double-blind study.

    The main goal of this study is to see if Givinostat can help reduce muscle decline in patients with DMD who cannot walk, by looking at changes in upper limb function after 18 months of treatment. The safety and tolerability of Givinostat in these patients will also be closely monitored.

    Participants will be involved in the study for about 20 to 21 months, which includes a 4-week screening period to confirm eligibility, 18 months of treatment, and a follow-up period. At the end of the treatment period, all participants, regardless of which group they were in, will have the option to join a long-term safety study where they will receive Givinostat.

  • Examining long-term use of osimertinib in treating lung cancer

    This study is investigating a drug known as osimertinib. This includes people who have had successful surgery to remove a type of lung cancer called NSCLC. This cancer is caused by a mutation in a protein called EGFR. The aim of this study is to see if osimertinib can prevent the cancer from coming back within 5 years. The goal is also to ensure the drug’s safety for patients. Patients will receive the drug regardless of whether they received chemotherapy after surgery or not. Here are some of the issues investigators in this study will look at: how long it takes for the cancer to come back, if at all; how many people are alive without the disease after 3, 4 and 5 years; and how long people live after starting the drug. Additionally, a key part of the study is monitoring for any potential side effects.

  • Testing Milvexian’s effectiveness in preventing repeat strokes

    This research trial, called LIBREXIA-STROKE, will test a medication called Milvexian on those who have recently had a stroke or a high-risk ‘mini-stroke’. In its 3rd testing phase, the study will involve a system where the patients won’t know whether they are receiving the actual drug or a substitute with no effect, referred to as a ‘placebo’, to maintain fairness. Milvexian is a medication that can potentially reduce the risk of having another stroke, and this trial aims to observe how effective it is in doing so. The trial will look at when the first stroke happens after starting the trial, if other major heart or limb diseases occur, or if strokes occur in the first 90 days.

  • Comparison of different treatments for follicular lymphoma

    This study involves comparing two treatments for a condition known as follicular or marginal zone lymphoma, both of which are types of cancer affecting lymph cells. The first treatment combines zanubrutinib with an antibody called Anti-CD20, while the second treatment involves lenalidomide and rituximab. These treatments are intended for patients who have not responded or have stopped responding to conventional treatment. One of the primary objectives of the study is to determine which treatment is more effective in preventing the cancer from progressing, referred to as progression-free survival. Additionally, the study aims to assess the impact of these treatments on the patients’ quality of life, evaluating various aspects through questionnaires related to physical and emotional well-being, symptoms, and the ability to perform normal activities.

  • Study on dazostinag & pembrolizumab for advanced solid tumors

    The purpose of this study is to test a new drug called dazostinag. A study is being conducted to see whether this drug is helpful in adults with advanced forms of solid cancer. Some people are given dazostinag alone, while others are given it with another medicine called pembrolizumab. Scientists’ focus here is on finding out whether these drugs cause any side effects, and finding out what the maximum dose is that people can take without serious side effects. The study consists of two parts, including a dose escalation phase and a dose escalation phase. In the first part, the dose of dazostinag will be gradually increased, given alone or in combination with pembrolizumab. In the second part, Dazostinag will be tested with pembrolizumab and other anticancer drugs. This section will focus on patients with specific cancers that are difficult to remove or have spread to other parts of the body.

  • Study new combination therapy in advanced lung cancer

    This study is about testing a new drug mix to help people with advanced lung cancer (NSCLC) that doesn’t have special gene changes. The research aims to determine whether a combination of three drugs, namely Datopotamab Deruxtecan (Dato-DXd), Durvalumab, and Carboplatin, demonstrates superior efficacy compared to an alternative drug mixture. The people in this study have stage IIIB, IIIC, or IV lung cancer. They will be split in two groups. One group will get Datopotamab Deruxtecan, Durvalumab, and Carboplatin. The other group gets Pembrolizumab and some specific chemo drugs. he primary objective is to assess whether the new three-drug combination can effectively delay cancer growth and extend overall survival time.

  • 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.
