    Study on AOC 1020 for Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy Treatment

    This study is aimed at exploring the safety, tolerability, and potential effectiveness of a novel treatment known as AOC 1020 for adults affected by Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD), covering both FSHD Type 1 and FSHD Type 2.

    The structure of the trial is randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, ensuring that participants are randomly allocated to receive either the AOC 1020 treatment or a placebo (a substance without therapeutic effect, serving as a control in the testing of new drugs) via an intravenous (IV) infusion. The objective is to keep both participants and study staff unaware of which treatment is being administered to maintain impartiality.

    The detailed study is organized into three segments: Part A is dedicated to dose titration utilizing both a single and multiple dose schedule for one cohort. Part B investigates single-ascending and multiple-ascending dose designs across two cohorts. Conclusively, Part C is designed with a parallel, multi-dose cohort approach for one cohort. Each segment of the study lasts for 12 months, encompassing approximately 9 months of active treatment followed by a 3-month follow-up period.

    After the conclusion of the active treatment and follow-up, participants are presented with the opportunity to enter a planned open-label extension, which allows continued access to the treatment being investigated. Those opting out of the extension are subjected to a 6-month safety follow-up period.

    The primary concern of the study is the monitoring of the incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events throughout the duration of the study, up to Day 365, to ensure the safety and well-being of all participants.

  • A non-invasive test to assess adrenal function in children with asthma using inhaled steroids

    The study is focused on developing a new way to check whether the body is producing enough of an essential stress hormone called cortisol, especially in children using inhaled steroids to treat asthma. Steroid inhalers are common, but there is concern that they may prevent the body from producing enough cortisol when it is really needed, such as during illness. This could be serious. Currently, doctors use a test called the **short synacten test (SST)** to check whether the adrenal glands (which produce cortisol) are functioning properly. But this test requires needles and can be stressful and unpleasant, especially for children.

    The goal of the study is to create a **non-invasive** version of this test. Instead of needles, doctors want to use a nasal spray of a drug called **Synacthen**, which stimulates the adrenal glands, and then measure cortisol levels in saliva. This new method could make testing easier, faster and more convenient for children.

    Doctors will start by testing this new approach in adults to understand how well it works and how it compares to the traditional test. They will look at how the body absorbs the drug and how it affects cortisol levels. They will then perform the same tests on children to make sure it is safe and effective for them too.

  • 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.
