    Study comparing Giredestrant and Fulvestrant with CDK4/6 Inhibitors for advanced breast cancer

    This study focuses on a type of advanced breast cancer known as Estrogen Receptor-Positive (ER+), HER2-Negative breast cancer. This kind of cancer is driven by hormones and does not have high levels of the HER2 protein. The study aims to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of a new drug called Giredestrant compared to an existing drug called Fulvestrant. Both drugs will be combined with one of three medicines that inhibit proteins in cancer cells called CDK4/6 inhibitors (Palbociclib, Ribociclib, or Abemaciclib).

    In this study, participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups. One group will receive Giredestrant and the other will receive Fulvestrant. Both groups will also receive one of the CDK4/6 inhibitors chosen by their doctor. These combinations are being tested to see which works better to stop the cancer from growing or spreading.

    The drugs involved include Giredestrant (RO7197597, RG6171, GDC-9545), Fulvestrant, Abemaciclib, Palbociclib, Ribociclib, and LHRH Agonist (for pre/perimenopausal women and men).

    The goal is to find out if Giredestrant can provide better results and fewer side effects compared to Fulvestrant when both are combined with one of the CDK4/6 inhibitors. The study may involve regular tests and assessments to monitor the cancer’s progress and the patient’s response to the treatment.

    Participants will continue to receive the study drugs as long as they are benefiting from them and not experiencing unacceptable side effects. The study involves close monitoring to ensure the safety and well-being of all participants throughout the treatment period.

  • Study of the safety and effectiveness of GLSI-100 in patients with HER2-positive breast cancer

    The study concerns the treatment of patients with HER2/neu-positive breast cancer. Treatment will include GLSI-100 immunotherapy and comparison to placebo. GLSI-100 consists of GP2 peptide and GM-CSF, protein substances that are designed to strengthen the body’s immune response, i.e. natural protection against diseases.

    The aim of this study is to determine how effective and safe GLSI-100 therapy is compared to placebo in preventing breast cancer recurrence after standard treatment. The study is aimed at people at high risk of disease recurrence who have completed both preoperative and postoperative therapy based on trastuzumab, a drug used to treat breast cancer.

    The study will assess invasive breast cancer-free survival (i.e. the time from the first dose of the drug to the moment of disease recurrence or death from any cause), invasive disease-free survival (i.e. the time from the first dose of the drug to the moment of any disease recurrence or new cancer), remote disease (i.e. time until disease recurrence in a place other than the breast or death).

    The study also includes an assessment of the participants’ quality of life both at the beginning and over the next 36 months, as well as an analysis of the body’s immune response to treatment.

  • Study of Povetacicept for treating autoimmune blood disorders

    This clinical study aims to evaluate the safety and potential benefits of a drug called povetacicept in adults with autoimmune cytopenias, specifically immune thrombocytopenia, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, and cold agglutinin disease. The study is open-label, meaning both the researchers and participants know what treatment is being administered. Participants will receive povetacicept through a subcutaneous injection approximately every four weeks for six months. There is also a possibility of extending the treatment for an additional six months. The primary goal is to monitor the type, incidence, severity, and seriousness of any adverse events from the first day of treatment through 30 days after the last dose. This study is designed to determine if povetacicept is safe and potentially beneficial in treating these autoimmune conditions.

  • Study on the effectiveness and safety of Ianalumab for treating Warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia

    This clinical trial is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a drug called ianalumab in patients with warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (wAIHA) who have not responded to at least one previous treatment. The study aims to determine if ianalumab can induce and maintain a durable hemoglobin response compared to a placebo.

    Participants will be randomly assigned to receive one of two different doses of ianalumab or a placebo. If a participant assigned to the placebo group does not respond to the treatment, they may be given ianalumab in an open-label manner, meaning both the participant and the doctor will know they are receiving the drug.

    The investigational treatment will be administered through an intravenous (i.v.) infusion. During the study, participants will have regular visits every other week during the treatment period and primary endpoint follow-up period. For safety monitoring, visits will occur monthly for the first 20 weeks after the last dose and then quarterly for up to two years. If a participant achieves a durable response, additional monthly visits for efficacy will continue for the first two years after the last dose, followed by quarterly visits until the loss of response or the end of the study, which could be up to 39 months after the last participant is randomized.

    The primary goal is to see if ianalumab can achieve a durable hemoglobin response, defined as a hemoglobin level of at least 10 g/dL and an increase of at least 2 g/dL from baseline for a period of at least eight consecutive weeks between weeks 9 and 25, without the need for rescue medication or prohibited treatment.

    This study offers hope for patients with wAIHA who have not found success with other treatments, providing a potential new option to manage their condition.

  • A Study of Obexelimab for treating Warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia


    Warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (wAIHA) is a condition where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys its own red blood cells. This study will examine whether obexelimab can help treat people with wAIHA. Obexelimab is a special type of treatment called a monoclonal antibody, which can target and potentially reduce the activity of some immune cells involved in this disease.

    Study participants will go through different stages. The first stage is a Safety and Dose Confirmation Run-In Period (SRP) lasting for six months. During this time, all participants will receive obexelimab through injections under the skin. This is followed by the Randomized Control Period (RCP), which also lasts for six months. In this stage, participants will be randomly divided into two groups: one group will continue to receive obexelimab, while the other group will receive a placebo.

    After these initial periods, participants will have the chance to continue receiving obexelimab in an Open Label Extension (OLE) period lasting up to a year. Throughout the study, participants will visit the study site for regular checks to ensure the treatment’s effectiveness and safety.

  • Study on the effectiveness and safety of M281 in adults with warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia

    The study focuses on Warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (wAIHA), a condition where the immune system mistakenly destroys red blood cells. This leads to symptoms like fatigue, weakness, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes). The trial examines the effects of a therapy named M281 (Nipocalimab). The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of M281. Patients participating in the study will receive either M281 or a placebo. It aims to compare improvements in health and monitor any side effects.

    The study structure is as follows:

    Double-blind period: This lasts for 24 weeks, where participants will be randomly assigned to one of three groups. One group will receive M281 every 4 weeks, alternating with a placebo every 4 weeks. Another group will receive M281 every 2 weeks, and the third group will receive a placebo every 2 weeks.

    Open-label extension period: This phase extends for 144 weeks, where all participants will receive M281, either every 2 weeks or every 4 weeks.

    Participants will be monitored for 8 weeks after the last dose to check for any ongoing effects of the treatment. The study aims to provide comprehensive information about the effectiveness and safety of M281 in treating wAIHA.

  • 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.

  • Study on luspatercept treatment for Myelodysplastic Syndrome

    This study is looking into a medication named Luspatercept and how safe and effective it is for people who have a blood condition known as lower-risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome, or LR-MDS for short. These individuals often need transfusions or have their blood refreshed with new, healthy red blood cells. The drug will be given at its highest approved dose to see what effect it has. This is being done in a controlled and careful way to make sure everything is safe for the participants in the study. People who are taking part in this study have been identified as having a very low to medium risk according to the International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS-R). This means their disease isnt considered high-risk, which makes them suitable candidates for this research. The study is open-label, meaning everybody knows what is in the drug they are getting.
