    Comparison of zibotentan/dapagliflozin with dapagliflozin alone in the treatment of chronic kidney disease with high proteinuria

    The study aims to understand how to better treat people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and high proteinuria. This study is in its third phase and involves multiple centers where participants will be closely monitored. The main goal is to compare the effectiveness, safety, and how well participants tolerate a combination treatment of zibotentan/dapagliflozin versus dapagliflozin alone.

    During this study, participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups. One group will receive the combination of zibotentan and dapagliflozin, while the other group will receive only dapagliflozin. Both treatments aim to slow down the decline in kidney function, which is a major concern for people with CKD and high proteinuria. The key measure of success for this study is the change in eGFR from baseline, which is a test used to check how well the kidneys are working, specifically by measuring the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). This will be assessed at the 24-month mark of the study.

    This research is crucial because it could lead to better treatment options for those suffering from CKD and high proteinuria, potentially improving their quality of life and health outcomes.

  • Study of the effectiveness of tanimilast in the treatment of pulmonary diseases

    A 52-week clinical trial is being conducted to investigate the effectiveness and safety of the new drug, known as Tanimilast (CHF6001), in people diagnosed with chronic bronchitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The primary aim of the study is to determine the effectiveness of CHF6001 administered as an addition to a standard COPD treatment regimen. Study participants will be randomly assigned to receive the study drug CHF6001 or a placebo, which will be taken concurrently with their existing COPD therapy. Key measurements in the study include monitoring the frequency and severity of COPD exacerbations, which are episodes of significantly worsening symptoms. Additionally, the study will assess changes in participants’ lung function and overall quality of life. Typically eligible for the study are adults who are 40 years of age or older, have a documented history of COPD and chronic bronchitis, and are current or former smokers. In particular, the study is of interest to people who have experienced at least one COPD exacerbation in the year preceding the study.

  • Testing the safety and efficacy of Ruxolitinib cream in prurigo nodularis therapy

    This clinical trial is to test a cream with Ruxolitinib on people with a skin condition called prurigo nodularis (PN) over a period of about one year. The trial is divided into three stages. In the first 12 weeks, participants will use either the Ruxolitinib cream or a placebo cream on the skin where PN appears. In the next 40 weeks, the Ruxolitinib cream will only be applied to the areas where PN is active. The last 30 days are to watch for any side effects. The trial will monitor changes in the severity of itching and the number of PN bumps on the skin. Any possible side effects will be recorded too.

  • Comparison of different treatments for follicular lymphoma

    This study involves comparing two treatments for a condition known as follicular or marginal zone lymphoma, both of which are types of cancer affecting lymph cells. The first treatment combines zanubrutinib with an antibody called Anti-CD20, while the second treatment involves lenalidomide and rituximab. These treatments are intended for patients who have not responded or have stopped responding to conventional treatment. One of the primary objectives of the study is to determine which treatment is more effective in preventing the cancer from progressing, referred to as progression-free survival. Additionally, the study aims to assess the impact of these treatments on the patients’ quality of life, evaluating various aspects through questionnaires related to physical and emotional well-being, symptoms, and the ability to perform normal activities.

  • Study on dazostinag & pembrolizumab for advanced solid tumors

    The purpose of this study is to test a new drug called dazostinag. A study is being conducted to see whether this drug is helpful in adults with advanced forms of solid cancer. Some people are given dazostinag alone, while others are given it with another medicine called pembrolizumab. Scientists’ focus here is on finding out whether these drugs cause any side effects, and finding out what the maximum dose is that people can take without serious side effects. The study consists of two parts, including a dose escalation phase and a dose escalation phase. In the first part, the dose of dazostinag will be gradually increased, given alone or in combination with pembrolizumab. In the second part, Dazostinag will be tested with pembrolizumab and other anticancer drugs. This section will focus on patients with specific cancers that are difficult to remove or have spread to other parts of the body.

  • Assessing olpasiran treatment for heart disease and elevated cholesterol

    Tests named ‘OCEAN(a)’ are being conducted, focusing on a medication called ‘olpasiran’. Put simply, the potential of this medication in preventing serious heart episodes in individuals with Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease and an elevated level of a fat protein, Lipoprotein(a), is under examination. The effect of a harmless, dummy pill (placebo) is compared to that of the actual medication, olpasiran, in individuals with these conditions. The primary goal is to determine whether olpasiran can reduce the risk of death due to heart disease, occurrence of heart attacks, or the necessity for sudden surgery to clear blocked heart vessels.

  • Testing the effect and safety of tanimilast for COPD patients

    This study is a year-long experiment where the researchers will test the effectiveness and safety of two doses of a new drug called tanimilast. Tanimilast is added to the usual treatment for people with two lung conditions: COPD and Chronic Bronchitis. The drug will be tested and compared with a group that will take a placebo, a substance with no effect. The main aim is to see if tanimilast helps control the worsening of symptoms in COPD patients. These worsening instances are known as ‘exacerbations’ and can range in severity. Some might require extra medication.

  • Evaluating the impact of upadacitinib on Hidradenitis Suppurativa

    The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of a drug called upadacitinib on people suffering from a skin condition called Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS). HS causes painful sores, mainly in areas such as the armpits, groin, and anal and genital areas. The drug has already been approved to treat other conditions, such as ulcerative colitis and rheumatoid arthritis, but now doctors want to see if it can help HS patients who don’t respond to current treatments. The study was divided into three parts. First, participants will be randomly assigned to two different groups, one group will take upadacitinib and the other will take a placebo (a substance with no active effect). Neither participants nor doctors will know what treatment a person is receiving. The study lasts a year and a half, and patients take pills every day. Depending on the results obtained, they may proceed to further stages of the study. Participants’ health will be closely monitored through regular check-ups, surveys, and monitoring for any side effects.
