This study is enrolling participants with elevated lipoprotein (a) levels, a cholesterol like substance, to test an investigational study medication called olpasiran. Investigational means it has not yet been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for commercial use but has been approved for use in this study. Olpasiran is a subcutaneous injection given every 12 weeks. This study is randomized, which means participants are randomly assigned, like the flip of a coin, to either receive olpasiran or placebo. Placebo looks like the study medication but has no active ingredients. Neither the participants nor the study doctor or study team will know if you are getting study medication or placebo. Participation in this study will last up to 4 1/2 years and include about 14-24 study visits. Study procedures include physical exams, medical history and medication review, electrocardiograms (tracing of the electrical activity of your heart), blood work, questionnaires and medication administration.
The purpose of this study is to learn about the effects of an experimental treatment called E7386. This study is for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, colorectal cancer, endometrial cancer, or other solid tumors. E7386 in combination with levantinib fight tumors by decreasing tumor density. The purpose of this study is to learn about the effects of an experimental treatment called E7386. E7386 is considered "experimental" because it has not been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of any disease. Levantinib is FDA approved and has been previously used to treat cancer, however, it is considered experimental in combination with E7386.
This clinical research study is enrolling adults who have high triglycerides (fats in the blood). The study drug, olezarsen, is an investigational drug designed to reduce triglyceride blood levels. If you meet the requirements to participate in this study, you will be randomly assigned to receive either olezarsen or placebo (an inactive substance that contains no drug). During the treatment period, participants will be asked to complete visits every 4 weeks to include a total of 21 visits over approximately 16 months. If eligible, study medication and study visits will be provided free of charge. Compensation is available.
This study will evaluate the effects of elafibranor (the study drug) in participants with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC). PSC is a rare disease of the liver that leads to injury and destruction of bile ducts. Damage to bile ducts leads to buildup of bile in the liver, which then causes further damage, and leads to disease progression. This study will compare elafibranor to a placebo, a dummy treatment. The main objective of the trial will be to study the safety and side effects of the study drug. The trial will also study the study drug's effects on blood tests and other tests related to PSC disease activity.
This study is recruiting patients who have advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with a KRAS mutation whose cancer has not responded to standard of care treatment. (All human cells have a gene called KRAS. If cells have a KRAS mutation, the cells may multiply out of control which can cause cancer.) This study has two parts. The first part of the study is being done to find the safety, tolerability and safe dose of a study drug called BBP-398 when it is used in combination with another drug that has already been approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration, called Nivolumab. The second part of the study is being done to further understand the how tumors are affected by the study drug, BBP-398, and Nivolumab. About 26 patients in the United States will participate in this study. You may be eligible if you have NSCLC with a KRAS mutation that has not responded to standard treatment. Patients who enroll in this study will be required to come to MUSC for study treatments and follow-up visits. The participation in the study can last up to 2 years with a follow up period of 3 years.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate magrolimab in combination with pembrolizumab only, with pembrolizumab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy, and with zimberelimab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy in patients with untreated metastatic head and neck cancer. Magrolimab will also be evaluated in combination with docetaxel in patients with metastatic head and neck cancer who have received prior treatment.
This study is split into two phases, the initial phase (safety run-in) is to confirm a safe dose of magrolimab in combination with pembrolizumab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy and with docetaxel. The second phase will evaluate the effectiveness of magrolimab in combination with pembrolizumab only (without chemotherapy), with pembrolizumab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy, with zimberelimab + platinum + 5-FU, and with docetaxel.
Other purposes of this study include determining the quantity of magrolimab in the blood, your quality of life and the side effects these drugs have on the body.
