    Comparison of Olorofim and AmBisome® for Treating Invasive Aspergillosis in Patients Who Cannot Use Azole Therapy

    This study focuses on patients dealing with a serious fungal infection called Invasive Aspergillosis (IA). This infection is known to be particularly dangerous for people with weakened immune systems. Two drugs will be compared in this study: Olorofim (also known as F901318) and AmBisome® (liposomal amphotericin B). These drugs are used to treat patients who have a confirmed or suspected IA infection.

    AmBisome® is an established treatment, while Olorofim is a newer medication that works differently. This new drug aims to provide an alternative for patients who don’t respond well to existing therapies.

    The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness and safety of Olorofim with AmBisome®, followed by standard care according to medical guidelines. Patients will receive one of the treatments, and their response will be monitored over several months.

    Patients will start with either Olorofim or AmBisome® for a set period, then switch to the standard care recommended by their doctors. This approach allows researchers to understand how well each treatment works and what side effects might occur.

    Participation includes regular follow-ups and assessments to monitor the patient’s health, response to the medication, and any potential side effects. The ultimate goal is to find the best possible treatment for IA, improving outcomes for patients affected by this serious fungal infection.

  • Study on Ravulizumab’s effect on Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy

    The study is looking into the effectiveness of a medication called ravulizumab for adults who have a kidney condition known as Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy (IgAN). This condition can lead to kidney damage over time, and the study aims to find out if ravulizumab can help reduce the amount of protein lost in urine—a common problem in IgAN—and slow down the decrease in kidney function.

    In this study, about 450 participants who are at a high risk of their disease getting worse will be chosen. These participants must have been on stable treatment for their IgAN for at least three months before the study starts. They will then receive either ravulizumab or a placebo, which is a treatment with no active drug, through an IV infusion based on their weight. The main goal is to see if those who receive ravulizumab have a significant improvement in their condition compared to those who receive the placebo.

    The study will have two main checkpoints. The first one, at Week 34, will check how much protein is in the urine, and the second one, at Week 106, will assess how well the kidneys are filtering waste from the blood. Additionally, a smaller group of participants with more advanced kidney issues will receive ravulizumab to further explore its effects.

    After the study ends at Week 106, participants will have the option to continue receiving ravulizumab in a follow-up period to see how long-term treatment affects their condition. This study is a chance for people with IgAN to potentially slow down their disease progression and improve their quality of life.

  • Evaluating the Safety and Effectiveness of DYNE-101 for Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 Patients

    This clinical trial is focused on evaluating a new treatment called DYNE-101 for individuals with Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 (DM1). The main goal is to see how safe and tolerable this treatment is when given through an intravenous (IV) infusion, which means directly into the vein. The study is designed to carefully monitor how participants respond to multiple doses of DYNE-101 over time.

    The trial is structured into four main phases. It starts with a Screening Period that lasts up to 8 weeks to determine eligibility. Following this, there is a multiple-ascending dose (MAD) Placebo-Controlled Period that goes on for 24 weeks, where the safety and effectiveness of different doses of DYNE-101 are compared against a placebo (a treatment with no active drug). This is to ensure that any changes in participants’ health can be accurately attributed to the treatment. After this phase, there is a Treatment Period of another 24 weeks, where all participants receive DYNE-101. The study concludes with a Long-Term Extension (LTE) Period lasting 96 weeks, aimed at understanding the long-term impacts of the treatment.

    One of the key aspects being monitored throughout the study, up to Week 145, is the number of participants who experience any treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs), which are any new or worsening health issues that occur during the trial.

    This study represents an important step towards finding a new treatment option for those living with Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1, with a strong focus on safety and the overall well-being of the participants.

  • Sparsentan treatment study for children with Kidney Diseases

    This study involves children with kidney diseases that lead to high levels of protein in the urine. These diseases include Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), Minimal Change Disease (MCD), Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy (IgAN), Immunoglobulin A Vasculitis (IgAV), and Alport Syndrome (AS). The study will use a drug called Sparsentan, administered as an oral suspension or tablet.

    The goal is to determine if Sparsentan is safe and effective for these children. Participants will receive Sparsentan for 112 weeks, and their progress will be monitored to see if protein levels in their urine decrease and if their overall health improves. The study is open-label, meaning all participants will know they are receiving the drug.

  • 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.

  • Investigating safety and efficacy of new drug in spinocerebellar ataxia and Huntington’s disease

    In the search for better treatment options for neurodegenerative diseases like spinocerebellar ataxia and Huntington’s disease (HD), a new drug referred to as VO659 is currently being tested. The main goals are to observe how safe this new medicine is for patients and understand how it behaves in the body (this is often called pharmacokinetics). In this trial, patients who can still walk and have mild to moderate spinocerebellar ataxia or early Huntington’s disease will receive up to five doses of VO659. The application of the drug is not oral; instead, it will be administered via injections into the lower spine. It’s important to understand that the entire process will last for about 42 weeks per patient, consisting of initial screening, dosing, and post-dosing stages. All throughout the trial, suitable samples will be collected to monitor safety and drug responses.

  • Evaluating the efficacy of macitentan in the treatment of high pulmonary artery blood pressure

    This study is checking if a 75 mg dose of a medicine called Macitentan can do a better job for patients with a lung condition called Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) compared to a 10 mg dose. The main goal is to see if the 75 mg dose can better delay the patient’s first major health event related to PAH. Major events include things like unplanned hospital stays related to PAH, or their PAH getting worse. The researchers will check if patients’ PAH gets worse by looking at things like their physical exercise ability and signs of heart failure. The study also looks at how patients’ symptoms change from day to day.

  • Sotatercept treatment study for new Pulmonary Hypertension patients

    This study is an important test where doctors are looking at how a drug called Sotatercept can help people struggling with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (or PAH for short). The goal is to see whether this drug can delay or prevent the condition from getting worse. PAH makes it really hard for patients to breathe because it affects lungs and heart. The testing process is being done in a fair and careful way. Half of the patients will get the drug, and the others will get a ‘placebo’ which doesnt contain any medicine. The doctors will look at the effect on patients over time. The study is looking specifically at patients who were recently diagnosed with PAH and are at risk for the disease to get worse.

  • Testing the effectiveness of a new drug compared with standard therapy in the treatment of asthma

    This medical research is a year-long study that tests a new asthma medication, called GSK3511294 (Depemokimab), against two other asthma medicines, Mepolizumab and Benralizumab. The trial is intended for teens and adults who have a severe form of asthma called ‘eosinophilic phenotype.’ The aim is to see if switching to GSK3511294 from Mepolizumab or Benralizumab keeps the severity and frequency of asthma attacks under control equally or better. Participants will keep taking their regular non-biological asthma medications throughout the trial. The study will look at the number of severe asthma attacks a patient experiences in a year, which is defined here as any worsening of asthma requiring steroids, a hospital visit, or an emergency room trip. They will also check for changes in their quality of life and their asthma control using questionnaires, and measure the capacity of their lungs with a breathing test.
