    Comparing Acupuncture and Metformin with Lifestyle Changes for PCOS and Insulin Resistance

    This clinical trial is designed to explore the effectiveness of two different treatments for women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) who are also experiencing insulin resistance. The study aims to compare the impact of combining lifestyle management with either acupuncture or metformin (a medication), against the effects of lifestyle management alone. The main goal is to see how these treatments can improve the body’s ability to manage glucose, which is crucial in preventing the development of type 2 diabetes.

    The trial will last for 4 months, during which the researchers will closely monitor changes in insulin sensitivity, glucose regulation, and overall health markers including hormone levels, body fat distribution, and mental health aspects such as anxiety and depression. One of the unique aspects of this study is its focus on not just the physical health outcomes, but also on the quality of life and emotional well-being of the participants.

    For those considering the metformin treatment, it’s important to note that the medication will be gradually introduced to minimize side effects, starting with a lower dose and increasing to the target dose over the first three weeks. The study also places a strong emphasis on the potential benefits of acupuncture, hypothesizing that it could be equally effective as metformin but with fewer negative side effects.

    This trial is particularly significant for women with PCOS and insulin resistance, as it seeks to provide evidence-based insights into managing these conditions, improving fertility, and potentially preventing the onset of more serious health issues down the line.

  • Sparsentan Treatment Study for Children with Kidney Diseases

    We are excited to introduce a clinical trial focused on the study of Sparsentan treatment in children and adolescents with certain types of kidney diseases that lead to protein loss in urine, known as proteinuric glomerular diseases. This includes conditions like Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), Minimal Change Disease (MCD), Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy (IgAN), IgA Vasculitis (IgAV), and Alport Syndrome (AS).

    The main goal of this study is to understand how safe, effective, and tolerable Sparsentan is when given as an oral suspension or tablet. We are particularly interested in seeing how this treatment can change the levels of protein in the urine over a period of 108 weeks.

    This study is designed as a Phase 2, Open-Label, Single-Arm trial, meaning all participants will receive the treatment, and there will not be a comparison group receiving a placebo. We are looking to enroll approximately 67 pediatric subjects, aged 1 year to less than 18 years, who have been diagnosed with one of the specified conditions. The study is divided into three populations based on the specific disease and age groups, with different dosages of Sparsentan being tested across these groups.

    The safety of the participants will be closely monitored throughout the study, with a special focus on any treatment-emergent adverse events, serious adverse events, and any adverse events that may lead to discontinuation of the treatment. Additionally, we will measure the change in the urine protein/creatinine ratio (UP/C) from the start of the study to week 108 to assess the effectiveness of Sparsentan in reducing proteinuria.

    This study represents an important step towards finding a potentially effective treatment for children and adolescents suffering from these challenging kidney diseases. If you or your child are dealing with one of these conditions and are interested in participating, we encourage you to consider this unique opportunity.

  • Testing personalized treatments for advanced prostate cancer

    ProBio is a worldwide study for patients with advanced prostate cancer. It will look at whether new treatments can help patients based on their unique cancer characteristics. Patients are allocated in two groups: one will receive usual care following local guidelines (control group). The other group will be given treatments designed specifically for their type of cancer. These treatments will be chosen based on their cancer’s unique characteristics – what is called ‘biomarker signatures’. Depending on how well they respond to the treatment, patients may be moved to different treatments. Each treatment will be compared to standard care for effectiveness. The researchers will decide if treatments are effective, should continue, or should be stopped. New types and combinations of treatments can be included in the future. The study will use well-established standards to assess cancer improvement. Quality of life and costs of the treatment will also be evaluated. Side effects and responses to treatment at 6 months will also be recorded.
