This study will use a new investigational study drug called OMS721 in people with Immunoglobulin A (IgA) Nephropathy. OMS721 is an antibody, which is a type of protein that can bind to substances in the body. OMS721 is being studied because it blocks a key enzyme (a protein that causes specific chemical changes in the body) in the blood that may be responsible for causing the damage in IgA Nephropathy.
The study is approximately 23 visits over a period of 3 years. The study drug is administered via a 30-minute intravenous infusion once a week for 12 weeks. You will then be evaluated to determine your response to the drug and followed-up with regularly. Possible re-treatment is determined by the study doctor.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of an FDA-approved medication called tolcapone in people who have both Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The study involves seven visits over a three to four week period, including an assessment visit and two eight-day medication periods during which participants will be assigned to take, in a double-blinded fashion, both tolcapone and a placebo (three visits during each period). During two of these visits, participants will undergo a one-hour MRI scan. Participants must not be seeking treatment for AUD or ADHD and must not be currently taking any psychotropic medications, including stimulant medications for ADHD. Compensation is available for qualified participants.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC). The investigational drug used in this study is Ficlatuzumab. The main goals of this research study is to study the safety and effectiveness of Ficlatuzumab with or without Cetuximab, to determine which strategy will be more effective, as well as to learn the potential side effects of Ficlatuzumab alone or in combination with Cetuximab. It is unknown exactly how long participants can expect to be in the study. Subjects will receive treatment until the drug is no longer effective on their cancer.
This study will examine the effects of Epidiolex among adults who drink alcohol heavily but who are not seeking treatment for their alcohol use. Epidiolex is an FDA-approved formulation of cannabidiol, the primary non-psychoactive constituent of cannabis. Participants in the study will be randomly assigned to take Epidiolex or placebo for 8 days. There are 3 study visits, including a day-long visit in the laboratory.
The purpose of this study is to determine if repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) reduces opiate craving and pain in Veterans who are receiving treatment for opioid use disorder. The study will last approximately three months. There will be a screening visit to determine eligibility, followed by the treatment phase during which participants will receive six sessions of rTMS a day for three non-consecutive days. This period may take up to three weeks. There are follow up visits at one week, four weeks and three months after the treatment phase has ended.
During rTMS, focused magnetic waves are directed at a part of the brain that is important in pain, and craving, to increase its activity. If you participate, you will receive six sessions of either active rTMS, or placebo rTMS, each day for three days (18 total sessions). Each session lasts 15 minutes. People typically do not have side effects with rTMS, though they initially may find it mildly painful at the application site. About 1 out of every 20 people who get rTMS have mild headaches after sessions that are typically relieved with over-the-counter medicines. A few people who have had rTMS have had seizures, though the chance of this happening is very small.
This is an open-label, nonrandomized, dose escalation and dose expansion, safety, efficacy, PK and PD evaluation study of SAR439859 administered orally as monotherapy, then in combination with palbociclib. The study will last approximately 26 months, and participation in the study may last 4 to 8 weeks or longer. The length of participation in this study will depend on how well subjects tolerate the study drug and the condition of their disease.
The purpose of this study is to test and compare the effects of an investigational (being tested) drug called apremilast to placebo in pediatric plaque psoriasis.
Participants who are determined to be eligible to participate will be assigned by chance (or randomized) to treatment with apermilast or placebo. At Week 16, participants will receive apremilast regardless of treatment group. Study and safety assessments, including questionnaires and blood draws, will be completed at study visits. The maximum amount of time participants will be in the study is 71 weeks (at least 19 visits).
The purpose of this study is to is to investigate the combination of CV301 (an experimental cancer vaccine) with anti-PD-1 Therapy (atezolizumab which was approved for the treatment of advanced Urothelial Bladder Cancer) for treatment of locally advanced or metastatic UC.
CV301 involves the use of a two-component dosing regimen; a prime vaccine, MVA-BN-CV301 (the first vaccine generating a response from your immune system) and a boost vaccine, FPV-CV301 (the second vaccine increasing and maintaining the response of your immune system). Treatment with anti-PD-1 therapy may help the immune system detect and attack cancer cells.
In this clinical trial the use of CV301 vaccine in combination with atezolizumab infusion is being investigated to determine whether the overall survival and immune response observed in subjects treated with atezolizumab can be enhanced when combined with CV301.
This clinical trial is being performed at up to 8 clinical trial sites, and 68 people in total will be selected to participate. The trial is scheduled to last up to 104 weeks from the time you are first seen at the trial site until you start the long-term follow-up contacts. Once deemed eligible for participation, visits are every 3 weeks for the first 16 weeks on study. Then, visits will be every 6 weeks until week 28 on study, at which time visits will be every 12 weeks until end of treatment.
Participation in this trial will not guarantee any direct or immediate benefit, but can help gain future knowledge about the treatment of UC that may be beneficial to others with this disease.
This study is for subjects with newly-diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who are not eligible for standard induction chemotherapy. The investigational drug in this study is BST-236, which is given via IV. The purpose of this research study is to measure the safety of BST-236 and how effective it is in treating subjects. Visits will be required for 6 consecutive days during each cycle of treatment. The number of courses you receive will depend on whether you are benefiting from the study drug. Participants can expect to be in this study for 2 years (including treatment and post study follow-up).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a new investigational compound, called FPA144, in combination with chemotherapy (a combination of 5-fluorouracil, oxaliplatin, and leucovorin called mFOLFOX6), for the treatment of gastric and/or gastroesophageal cancer and other solid tumors. The entire study (Phase 1 and Phase 3) is expected to take about 66 months to complete. MUSC is participating in the phase 3 portion only.
