    Testing setmelanotide for weight loss in genetic obesity

    This study is a research project looking into the effectiveness of a medication called setmelanotide for people who are dealing with obesity due to specific genetic variations. This medication is given under the skin. The study is designed to see if setmelanotide can help people lose weight compared to a placebo, which don’t contain any active medication.

    The study focuses on individuals who have one of several gene variants in the Melanocortin-4 Receptor pathway. These variants include changes in the POMC or PCSK1 genes, the LEPR gene, the SRC1 gene, or the SH2B1 gene. Depending on which gene variant a participant has, they will be placed into one of four sub-studies.

    The main goal of this clinical trial is to measure how much weight participants lose while taking setmelanotide over a period of 52 weeks. This will be compared to the weight loss of participants who receive the placebo. The study is carefully controlled and blinded, meaning neither the participants nor the researchers will know who is receiving the actual medication and who is receiving the placebo until the study is completed.

    This trial is an important step in understanding how setmelanotide can help people with obesity linked to specific genetic factors, offering hope for a targeted treatment option.

  • SPI-62 as new drug for patients with ACTH-dependent Cushing’s syndrome

    This is a study focused on a new treatment option, SPI-62, for people struggling with ACTH-independent Cushing’s Syndrome. The main aim is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of SPI-62 in treating the condition.

    SPI-62 is a drug that works by inhibiting a specific enzyme in the body, potentially reducing excessive cortisol levels that contribute to the disease. During this study, participants will receive SPI-62 in oral tablet form. Dosing will vary, starting at a lower dose and potentially increasing depending on patient response and study requirements.

    The study has been designed as a Phase 2 trial, meaning that the primary focus is on understanding how well SPI-62 can treat the symptoms of hypercortisolism and what its safety profile is. Participants will be in the study for an extended period of time, with scheduled visits at baseline and then at 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months, followed by quarterly visits. These visits are crucial to monitor health status and treatment impact.

    One of the key aspects the researchers will be looking at is the change in HbA1c levels, a marker of blood sugar control, after both 6 and 12 weeks of treatment. This will help to understand whether SPI-62 can improve diabetes or the impaired glucose tolerance that often accompanies diabetes.

    Investigating new drug, JNJ-75276617 for the treatment of patients with acute leukemia

    This study is about a new medicine called JNJ-75276617, designed to help patients with a type of blood cancer called Acute Leukemia. Acute leukemia is an illness where the bone marrow makes too many white blood cells that are abnormal. This study is divided into two parts: first, to figure out the best dose of the new medicine, and second, to check if it’s safe at that dose. For up to 2 years and 10 months, researchers will follow participants closely and check for any changes in their health. They will look at the number of participants who experience bad side effects, how much of the drug is in their bodies, and how the disease is responding to the new medicine. The main goal is to find a dose of the drug that’s both safe and can possibly help patients with acute leukemia.

  • Testing new drug to help quit smoking

    This study is looking at a new treatment called NFL-101 that might help people stop smoking. In the test, 318 participants will be separated into 3 groups, in different locations, and given either the NFL-101 or a placebo, without anyone knowing which they get. The treatment appears to lessen the desire for a cigarette immediately and for a long time after its given. This study is also looking to see if giving one or two shots of a treatment that makes patients less sensitive to tobacco, at the same time as patients try to quit, might help. Each participant’s tobacco abstinence will be measured a few times: 4 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months from the start. This study will help find the most effective dosage and gauge how well and for how long this new treatment works.
