    Withdrawal of tiratricol in males with Monocarboxylate Transporter 8 (MCT8) Deficiency

    This study focuses on Monocarboxylate Transporter 8 (MCT8) Deficiency, a rare genetic disorder that disrupts thyroid hormone transport, leading to severe developmental and neurological issues. The trial investigates the effects of withdrawing tiratricol (a thyroid hormone replacement therapy) in male patients. The goal is to observe changes in thyroid hormone levels and determine if levels rise above normal when tiratricol is stopped, which would require restarting the medication. Participants will receive either tiratricol or a placebo for 30 days or until specific criteria necessitate changes. Regular assessments and monitoring will be conducted to evaluate the effects.

  • Exploring encaleret’s effectiveness for Autosomal Dominant Hypocalcemia type 1

    This clinical study is a research project focused on understanding how well and safely a medication called Encaleret works compared to the usual treatments for a condition known as Autosomal Dominant Hypocalcemia Type 1 (ADH1). ADH1 is a rare genetic condition that can lead to low calcium levels in the blood and is often inherited from parents to their children.

    The study is designed to last about 12 months, with an additional option to continue in a longer-term extension for up to 48 months or more, depending on certain conditions. Initially, participants will go through a screening phase to make sure they meet the study requirements.

    Participants will then enter a period where their usual care treatment is maintained, with adjustments only made for safety reasons. Following this, they will be randomly assigned to either continue with their standard care or start taking encaleret. This part of the study allows both the doctors and participants to know which treatment is being used and to adjust the dosage based on blood calcium levels. After 20 weeks, there’s a period to maintain the dose before possibly moving on to the long-term extension phase, where encaleret will be continued.

    The main goal of the study is to see how many participants can reach and maintain their blood and urinary calcium levels within a target range by using encaleret compared to their standard treatments. This is important for managing the symptoms and health risks associated with ADH1.

    This study might be an opportunity for people with ADH1 to try a new treatment option and contribute to research that could help others with the same condition in the future.

  • 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.
