    Study of Pembrolizumab/Quavonlimab Combination vs Other Treatments for Colorectal Cancer

    This here clinical trial is aimin’ to take a good look at a new combination treatment called co-formulated pembrolizumab/quavonlimab for folks with stage IV colorectal cancer that’s got that microsatellite instability-high or mismatch repair deficient business goin’ on. The main goal is to see how well this new combo treatment works at shrinkin’ them tumors, compared to some other treatments out there.

    Now, the real important part is that the doctors’ll be keepin’ a close eye on how many folks get what they call an objective response, meanin’ their tumors either disappear completely or shrink down by at least 30%. They’ll be trackin’ this over a span of up to around 50 months to get a good picture of how effective this new treatment is.

    Safety’s always a top priority too, so the doctors’ll be watchin’ out for any side effects or issues that might crop up with this new combo treatment. It’s all about findin’ the best way to fight that cancer while keepin’ folks as comfortable as possible.

  • A study comparing the combination of lifileucel plus pembrolizumab with pembrolizumab alone in the treatment of unresectable, advanced melanoma

    The aim of this study is to test a new treatment for people with advanced melanoma, a serious form of skin cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. The new treatment combines two different therapies: lifileucel, made from the patient’s own immune cells called tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes, and pembrolizumab, a type of immunotherapy drug that helps the body’s immune system fight cancer.

    The study will compare the effectiveness and safety of this combination treatment with pembrolizumab alone. Patients who initially received only pembrolizumab and whose cancer worsened will have the option to switch treatment and receive lifileucel monotherapy.

    The main goals of the study are to see whether the combination treatment can improve the objective response rate, which measures how many patients have had their tumors shrink, and progression-free survival, which is how long patients live without their cancer getting worse. To evaluate the results of the study, patients will be followed for up to 5 years.

    To be eligible for this trial, patients must have advanced melanoma that cannot be surgically removed or has spread to other organs. Additionally, patients cannot be previously treated for metastatic disease, although some prior therapies for earlier stages of melanoma are permitted.

  • Assessing imatinib inhalation therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension

    This clinical study aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an inhaled treatment called imatinib (AV-101) for patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). The trial is divided into two parts: Phase 2b and Phase 3. In Phase 2b, researchers will test three doses of AV-101 to identify the optimal dose for Phase 3. They will check this by measuring the resistance of the lung vessels — less resistance means the medicine is working. In the following Phase 3, the primary outcome will be the change in the 6-minute walk distance after 24 weeks of treatment compared to a placebo. Participants must be between 18 and 75 years old, have a diagnosis of PAH, and meet specific criteria regarding their disease severity and concomitant therapy.

  • Testing inhaled imatinib for pulmonary arterial hypertension

    This study is about a new medicine called imatinib (AV-101) which you breathe in as a dry powder. It’s for people who have a health problem called Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) – when blood pressure is too high in the arteries that go from the heart to the lungs. The imatinib study will go through two stages. In the first stage, the researchers will try three different amounts of the medicine to find the best one. It will be based on how much it can reduce the resistance in the blood flow in the lungs. In the second stage, they it will be seen how far patients can walk in 6 minutes after taking the medicine for 24 weeks. The study also uses scoring systems to measure how much risk or symptoms a patient has. A higher score means more risk or symptoms.
