    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.

  • Testing zamaglutenase for gluten breakdown in celiac disease treatment

    This study focuses on a medicine called zamaglutenase (TAK-062) that may help people with celiac disease. Celiac disease is a condition where the body can’t process gluten, which is found in wheat, rye, and barley. When people with celiac disease eat gluten, their immune system reacts by damaging the small intestine. TAK-062 is meant to break down the gluten in a person’s stomach, possibly helping the body cope better. The study needs around 357 volunteers, who will be split into two groups at random. Both groups will involve adults over 18 years of age. The first group will get a placebo (a medicine-like substance with no actual medicine) and a gluten bar, and the other group will get a dose of TAK-062 alongside the gluten bar. After some time, a committee will check the results of the first group. Depending on what they find, the study may then include teenagers, and the second group will start. Just like any medicine, TAK-062 may or may not cause side effects. Even seemingly unrelated health problems that happen during the study are important, as they could be linked to the medicine, even if it’s not clear at first. This study aims to find clear and truthful results about how TAK-062 works for people with celiac disease.
