    Study on Aticaprant’s safety and effects as an adjunctive therapy for major depressive disorder

    This trial is for adults and elders who are struggling with major depressive disorder (MDD). The trial involves a medicine called aticaprant, and this is supposed to be taken alongside what they are already using to handle their depression (SSRI or SNRI drugs). The study aims to determine the long-term safety and efficacy of aticaprant. To achieve this, close monitoring of adverse events, which includes negative reactions or changes in patients’ health, is crucial. Physical health indicators, such as weight, core body temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure, will be assessed to understand the potential impact of aticaprant. Additionally, the study will evaluate patients’ thoughts on suicide, any discernible changes in their sexual health, and their overall mood.

  • Study on a new combination therapy for active ulcerative colitis

    This study aims to assess the effectiveness and safety of new combination therapy with JNJ-78934804 (Guselkumab/Golimumab) in comparison to guselkumab and golimumab administred alone for individuals with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis. Participants who have shown inadequate response, loss of response, or intolerance to approved advanced therapies will be included. The trial includes various treatment groups: placebo, Guselkumab, Golimumab, and different doses of JNJ-78934804. All participants meeting inadequate response criteria will be escalated to an active treatment. The study will last for 48 weeks and the progress will be tracked over this period.

  • 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.

  • A study of lanifibranor treatment in adults with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

    This study is a two-part trial looking at how well a drug called Lanifibranor works for adults suffering from liver diseases known as NASH and fibrosis stages F2 and F3. In the first part of the trial, the researchers will compare the effects of Lanifibranor with a placebo, which is a substance with no medical effect. The researchers will be looking at how much the drug can improve the health of the liver. The second part of the study will continue the use of Lanifibranor to see if there are any long-term safety issues. Apart from studying the drug’s effectiveness in resolving NASH and reducing live fibrosis, the trial will also be observing how it affects other aspects of liver health, diabetes, blood sugar and fat levels, liver stiffness and patients’ quality of life.

  • Testing astegolimab’s effectiveness in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients

    A clinical research study is being conducted to examine the efficacy and safety of a novel treatment known as astegolimab in the management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The study is particularly focused on individuals with a history of COPD who are either current or former smokers and have experienced frequent exacerbations. Within the scope of this study, astegolimab’s therapeutic potential is being compared to that of a placebo. Participants enrolled in the trial will be administered the study medication at intervals of either every 2 or 4 weeks. Key parameters under evaluation include the frequency of COPD exacerbations, variations in the quality of life of the participants, and changes in lung function over the course of the study. The study aims to contribute valuable data to medical research, particularly in understanding the treatment dynamics of astegolimab in COPD management.

  • 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.

  • Study on pegozafermin treatment for Severe Hypertriglyceridemia

    This research study is all about testing a medicine named pegozafermin to see how safe and effective it is for people with a condition called Severe Hypertriglyceridemia (too many triglycerides in the blood). It’s a trial that compares the medicine side by side with a placebo (injection without an active substance that doesn’t have any effect). Every patient will be randomly given either the real medicine or the placebo, and neither they nor the doctors will know which one until the end. The main aim is to see how much the medicine reduces levels of triglycerides in the blood after taking it for 26 weeks.

  • Investigating a new inhaler’s impact: comparative study in asthma treatment

    The study is designed to assess whether PT010, a new inhaler, can be beneficial for adults and teenagers with poorly managed asthma. PT010 comprises three active ingredients: budesonide, glycopyrronium, and formoterol. The comparative analysis aims to determine the effectiveness and safety of PT010 in comparison to another inhaler containing budesonide and formoterol, as well as the widely used Symbicort inhaler. The study will span from 24 to 52 weeks and involve approximately, 2200 participants from various locations. The primary focus will be on the improvement of lung function within 24 weeks, alongside evaluating the reduction in the frequency of asthma attacks and its impact on quality of life and respiratory control.

  • Comparison of milvexian and apixaban in reducing stroke risk in patients with atrial fibrillation

    This study is designed to compare two drugs, Milvexian and Apixaban to reduce the potential risk of stroke for patients suffering from atrial fibrillation, a common heart rhythm disorder. 15500 participants, aged 18 years and older will be invited to partake in this research. Participants will be randomly designated to receive either Milvexian or Apixaban. The study team aims to determine if Milvexian is at least as effective as Apixaban in reducing the risk of combined stroke and Non-central nervous system (CNS) systemic embolism. Furthermore, the research team will evaluate the occurrence rates of various health incidents including major bleeding, various cardiovascular complications, death, and other severe conditions over a 4-year period. The goal is to find out which medication proves safer and more effective in preventing severe health risks linked with this disorder. Study commencement is April 11, 2023, with completion targeted at May 5, 2027.
