    Study of Elafibranor in the treatment of adult patients with Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC)

    The clinical trial is aimed at adult patients with confirmed primary cholangitis (PBC). Patients with this condition have an inadequate response or intolerance to ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA), a drug used to treat PBC.

    Primary cholangitis is a disease that slowly progresses and leads to damage to the bile ducts in the liver. This causes a build-up of bile acids, which further damages the liver. As the disease progresses, scarring of the liver may develop (cirrhosis). PBC is also associated with numerous symptoms, such as itching and fatigue, and may lead to the need for a liver transplant.

    The study evaluates the effectiveness and safety of a drug called elafibranor at a dose of 80 mg daily. The study will compare elafibranor with a placebo, an inactive substance administered for control purposes. The main goal of the study is to test the effectiveness of elafibranor. The safety of long-term use of this medicine and its effect on symptoms such as itching and fatigue will also be checked.

  • 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 ANV419 as monotherapy or in combination with pembrolizumab and ipilimumab in patients with metastatic melanoma

    The aim of this study is to test a new drug called ANV419. It will be given alone or in combination with other approved cancer medicines such as pembrolizumab or ipilimumab. The main goal is to see how well ANV419 works and whether it is safe for people with advanced cutaneous melanoma, which is a type of skin cancer that has spread or cannot be surgically removed.

    The trial is currently open to adult patients who have already been treated with drugs that target PD-1 or PD-L1 proteins, but whose cancer has continued to progress. The study will have different parts. First, doctors will find the right dose of ANV419 to use alone or in combination with other treatments. They will then check how many patients respond to treatment, which means their tumors shrink or stop spreading.

  • A study comparing biosimilar nivolumab and nivolumab in the treatment of resected melanoma

    The aim of this study is to test whether a new drug called ABP 206 (biosimilar nivolumab) works as well as the approved cancer drug OPDIVO® (nivolumab) in people with advanced cutaneous melanoma that has been surgically removed. The study divided people into 3 groups: one group will receive ABP 206, the second will receive real OPDIVO® approved in the US, and the third will receive the version of OPDIVO® approved in Europe. All of these medicines will be given through an intravenous drip every 4 weeks for up to 1 year, or until the cancer comes back or gets significantly worse.

    The main goal is to check whether ABP 206 (biosimilar nivolumab) is absorbed and maintained in the body in the same way as OPDIVO®. Researchers will also closely monitor how well it works, what the side effects are, and whether the body produces antibodies against it. The entire study will last approximately 13 months for each person joining.
