    Study on the effectiveness and safety of DMX-200 for FSGS patients using ARB

    Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a rare kidney disease where some parts of the kidneys become scarred, leading to kidney damage and protein loss in urine. This study involves a therapy using an experimental drug named DMX-200 (also known as repagermanium), which, when taken with a type of medication called an Angiotensin II Receptor Blocker (ARB), aims to halt the inflammation that contributes to chronic kidney disease.

    The study is designed to assess how well DMX-200 works and how safe it is in treating people with FSGS. It will compare the effects of DMX-200 with a placebo over a period of 104 weeks (about 2 years). Patients will be given either DMX-200 in capsule form to take twice daily or a placebo. Given the rarity of FSGS, the study will include both adults and adolescents aged 12 to 17 years.

    The study will start with a screening period to ensure all necessary assessments are completed. This will be followed by the main treatment phase, lasting 104 weeks. After this, there will be a 4-week follow-up period without treatment to observe any changes. Patients who complete this double-blind period and might benefit from continued treatment will enter an open-label extension phase. During this phase, participants will receive DMX-200 for an additional 2 years, also followed by a 4-week off-treatment period for further observation.

    The goal is to determine the effectiveness and long-term safety of DMX-200 for treating FSGS. The study aims to improve understanding and develop new treatments for this challenging kidney condition.

  • Study of sarilumab in the treatment of juvenile idiopathic arthritis in children and adolescents

    This is a trial that aims to find the right dose of a drug called sarilumab for treating children and teenagers aged 1 to 17 years old with Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Sarilumab is given as an injection under the skin. The main goal is to understand how the body processes this drug in young patients, so they can receive an adequate dose for treating their condition.

    The study will last for about 166 weeks, which is a little over 3 years. It starts with a 4-week screening period, followed by a 12-week treatment phase where the patients will receive repeated doses of sarilumab. After that, there is a 144-week extension phase where the patients can continue receiving the drug, and finally a 6-week follow-up period.

    During the first 12 weeks, the researchers will closely monitor the levels of sarilumab in the patients’ blood to understand how their bodies handle the drug. They will look at the maximum concentration reached, the total amount of drug exposure over time, and the levels just before each new dose. This information will help them determine the right dose and dosing schedule for children and adolescents with Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

    In addition to studying the drug levels, the researchers will also evaluate the effectiveness of sarilumab in reducing the symptoms of this condition and monitor any potential side effects to ensure the drug is safe for long-term use in this age group.

  • 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.

  • Exploring a new treatment combination for rheumatoid arthritis: baricitinib plus anti-TNF

    This clinical trial is focused on finding a more effective treatment for people with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) who haven’t responded well to previous therapies. The study is comparing two different approaches: one group will receive a combination of baricitinib treatment and an anti-TNF therapy (adalimumab), while the other group will receive baricitinib along with a placebo. The main goal is to see which group shows a greater improvement in their RA symptoms, specifically looking for a 50% improvement in symptoms, known as an ACR 50 response, after 24 weeks from the start of the treatment.

    Baricitinib is a medication that targets certain pathways in the body’s immune system to reduce inflammation and pain in RA. Anti-TNF therapy, like adalimumab, works by blocking the action of a protein in the body that causes inflammation. By combining these two treatments, researchers hope to see a more significant improvement in RA symptoms than with baricitinib alone.

    The trial is important because it aims to provide a new option for patients with RA who have not found relief with current treatments. It’s designed to test the safety and effectiveness of using these two different types of medications together.

  • Assessing imatinib inhalation therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension

    This clinical study aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an inhaled treatment called imatinib (AV-101) for patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). The trial is divided into two parts: Phase 2b and Phase 3. In Phase 2b, researchers will test three doses of AV-101 to identify the optimal dose for Phase 3. They will check this by measuring the resistance of the lung vessels — less resistance means the medicine is working. In the following Phase 3, the primary outcome will be the change in the 6-minute walk distance after 24 weeks of treatment compared to a placebo. Participants must be between 18 and 75 years old, have a diagnosis of PAH, and meet specific criteria regarding their disease severity and concomitant therapy.
