The purpose of this study is to determine if the medication lofexidine, taken together with buprenorphine or methadone, is more effective at reducing opioid craving, use and stress response than buprenorphine or methadone alone, and to see if this effect is different for men and women. Participants are randomly assigned to add either lofexidine or placebo to their buprenorphine or methadone treatment for five weeks. They return at the end of five weeks to participate in an opioid imagery task and stress task. Throughout the study, participants complete "CREMA" sessions (Cue Reactivity Ecologic Momentary Assessment) using an iPhone app three times a day. These sessions include looking at stressful and neutral pictures and rating stress and craving.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate Nivolumab or Nivolumab plus Experimental Medication BMS-986205 with or without BCG (bacillus Calumette-Guerinin) BCG-Unresponsive non-muscle invasive Bladder Cancer. You will be randomized (assigned by chance) to receive treatment in either Arm A, Arm B, Arm C or Arm D. Arm A is Nivolumab alone, Arm B is Nivolumab and BCG (Bacille Calmette Guerin), Arm C is Nivolumab with IDO1 Inhibitor (BMS-986205), and Arm D is Nivolumab with IDO1 Inhibitor (BMS-986205) and BCG . An IDO1 inhibitor (such as BMS-986205) is designed to block the function of a protein (called an enzyme), called IDO1 within the body.Blocking the IDO pathway may help the immune system to fight abnormal cancer cells in the body.This is an open label study which means both you and your doctor will know which treatment you are receiving. You will take your assigned study medication as assigned based on your treatment arm for 52 weeks
This is a research study to find out the safety and efficacy of a drug called BG00011 and to find the best dosage. The study drug will be given by an injection under the skin, also called subcutaneously (SC), once a week during the treatment period. Study treatment will be given to you and you will be trained on how to inject yourself with the study drug/placebo in a prefilled syringe. You can ask for re-training at any time during the study. You will be in the study for up to 65 weeks (including a Screening visit, a Study Treatment Period of 52 weeks, and a Safety Follow-Up visit). This study is a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study.
This study will examine whether the investigational medication PF-0447845 is safe and effective in reducing cannabis use among people who frequently use cannabis. This is a 14-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled outpatient clinical trial that will be conducted at 4 research sites in the eastern U.S.
The purpose of this study is to develop transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) as a novel, non-pharmacologic approach to decreasing pain in individuals with chronic pain. This study will test whether rTMS over the prefrontal cortex can produce a reduction in your perception of pain, your desire to use opiates, and your brain's response to opiate cues. The results of this study will be used to design and develop a large clinical trial of rTMS as an innovative, new treatment option for chronic lower back pain in individuals that may have used chronic opiates.
This is a clinical research study of an investigational new drug that is being developed as a possible treatment in patients with hepatic insufficiency, cirrhosis and or/elevated blood ammonia levels. Ammonia is a substance that is built during the breakdown of the proteins in blood; in case of errors in the breakdown of proteins, ammonia levels might increase. Elevated ammonia may lead to other medical conditions. The study will help to determine the safety and tolerability of the study medication in male and female patients; in addition, the study investigates the study medications pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
This study is an inpatient study.
This study consists of 2 parts (part 1 and part 2). However our institution will only be taking part in part 2 of the study (described below) because recruitment for part one has been closed (as indicated by our sponsors).
Patients will initially present for a screening visit where eligibility will be determined. If patients are eligible for this study they will be admitted to an inpatient unit for a total of 12 days. During the 12 days of hospital stay, patients will receive study drug/placebo, regulated diet (predetermined as per study protocol) and several blood tests will be withdrawn measuring serum ammonia levels during this hospital stay. Once patients are discharged from hospital stay, they will be expected to follow up 1 week and 70 days after last study drug/placebo was administered (i.e last day in the hospital) with a stool sample.
The proposed study is looking to recruit smokers over the age of 18 to complete a four visit study. Participants will be randomized to receive either rapamycin (sirolimus) or a placebo at the second visit to assess potential effects on craving and relapse. Four study visits will be completed over the course of about three weeks.
This study will assess how 18 months of oral mycophenolate will compare to 18 months of mycophenolate plus pirfenidone, in the treatment of Systemic Sclerosis related Interstitial Lung Disease. Tolerability and toxicity will also be assessed, during this study.
This research is designed to test whether combining pirfenidone and mycophenolate will result in a more rapid and possibly greater improvement in lung function than occurs when mycophenolate is used alone. While both of these drugs have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat other medical conditions, neither drug has been FDA-approved for the treatment of scleroderma related lung disease. This research is being funded by the drug company, Genentech.
The purpose of this research study is to test if ARRY-371797 is safe and effective in treating dilated cardiomyopathy caused by a genetic mutation to the LMNA gene. This will be demonstrated by the functional capacity of patients in their 6-minute walk tests and quality of life questionnaires.
This study is to determine the safety and efficacy of nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine with or without olaratumab in the treatment of first-line metastatic pancreatic cancer. There is not a set number of clinic visits and subjects can remain on study provided their disease is at least stable for each imaging time point, and if study drugs are sufficiently tolerated
