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).
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 if the drug spironolactone - which is used to treat acne and male pattern hair growth in women - is effective in treating melasma in females and which dose of the drug works the best. Participation in this study will take about 5 clinic visits over approximately 16 weeks and the option to continue for longer if desired.
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.
The purpose of this study is to assess how effective the combination of avelumab and NHS-IL12 is in subjects with solid tumors. It will also collect more information on how safe and well-tolerated the combined study drugs are. Subjects will undergo a series of treatment cycles, each lasting 28 days. On Day 1 of each cycle, you will receive NHS IL12 immediately followed by avelumab on scheduled days. You will be assigned to receive avelumab every two weeks or to receive avelumab once a week. Both you and your study doctor will know which dose of study drugs you are receiving during the study.
This study is for subjects that have been diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The investigational drug in this study is loncastuximab tesirine (ADCT-402). The purpose of this Phase 2 study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of loncastuximab tesirine in subjects with DLBCL that has not responded to treatment or has come back after treatment.Treatment will occur every 3 weeks. The follow up treatment period will last up to approximately 3 years.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of switching from a regimen of 2 nucleos(t)ide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) and a third agent to a fixed dose combination (FDC) of bictegravir/emtricitabine/tenofovir alafenamide (B/F/TAF) versus continuing their baseline regimen in HIV-1 infected, virologically suppressed African American participants.
