Summary

This study aims to investigate innovative approaches to managing chronic pain and opioid use. This study consists of two phases, each offering different treatment options. Participation is voluntary.

This study will sequentially evaluate three novel and scalable interventions for at-risk individuals on long term opioid therapy for chronic pain: (1) low-dose transdermal buprenorphine initiation without a period of opioid withdrawal; (2) a brief Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for pain (CBI); and (3) transcranial magnetic stimulation by examining standardized repeated measures of clinical outcomes at baseline, during treatment, and at follow-up.

Phase 1:
In this initial phase, all participants will have a 1-week open-label trial of buprenorphine (worn as a patch on the arm, shoulder or upper-back). This trial aims to assess the safety and effectiveness of buprenorphine in managing chronic pain and opioid use. During this phase, participants will have the opportunity to experience the effects of buprenorphine under close monitoring.

Phase 2:
After completing Phase 1, participants will have the opportunity to choose their next course of treatment. They can decide to continue with buprenorphine, and undergo a 1-week trial of either real buprenorphine or a placebo (an inactive substance). They will be randomly assigned to receive either real or placebo buprenorphine. If participants respond well to buprenorphine treatment, they may continue the medication under the care of their physician.

Alternatively, participants can explore an alternative treatment called repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in Phase 2. If they opt for rTMS, they will receive either real rTMS or a sham version interspersed with cognitive-behavioral therapy for pain. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either real or sham rTMS.

In both phases, participants will receive close monitoring and attend regular study visits to assess safety and progress. Throughout the study, they will be asked to complete questionnaires about pain, functioning and opioid use, undergo physiological monitoring and blood samples will be collected at specific points.

It's important to note that there are potential risks associated with the study medication, such as difficulty sleeping, nausea, and dizziness. Additionally, for the rTMS arm, there is risk of mild headache, pain at the stimulation site, and there may be unknown risks related to the brain stimulation.

Participants' experience in Phase 1 will involve an open-label trial of buprenorphine, and participants' decisions in Phase 2 will determine the treatment path. While the effectiveness of these treatments is uncertain, participants will receive thorough monitoring throughout the study, and have the option to withdraw at any time. Improvement in participant symptoms is possible but not guaranteed.

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate investigational treatments (study drug) for unresectable metastatic colorectal cancer to determine if any of these study treatments improve overall survival as compared to standard treatments. The goal is to determine the optimal dose level, safety, and tolerability for the study drug ABBV-400 in combination with fluorouracil, folinic acid, and bevacizumab. The study consists of two stages, Stage 1 - Safety Lead-In Dose Escalation and Stage 2- Dose Optimization. ABBV-400 is not FDA approved. Bevacizumab is FDA approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat various cancers but may not be approved for your type of cancer. Treatment for this study may be up to 3 years. The procedures include blood and urine samples, questionnaires, infusions, and CT scans. Risks include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and numbness, tingling, or weakness in arms and legs. You may or may not receive a direct benefit from participating in this trial, however, information learned from the trial may help other people in the future.

Summary

The purpose of this study is to test whether a drug called efzofitimod (the study drug) is a potential treatment for patients with Systemic Sclerosis associated with Interstitial Lung Disease (SSc-ILD).

Efzofitimod is an investigational drug that is given by infusion every 4 weeks for a total of 6 doses. An investigational drug is not approved by The US Food and Drug Administration. It can only be used in a research study like this one. In this study, efzofitimod will be compared with a placebo (dummy drug). The placebo will be a saline solution that does not have any study drug in it. The comparison with the placebo helps to determine whether the effects seen in your body is because of efzofitimod or not. This is a randomized study, meaning that you will be assigned by chance (like flipping a coin) to receive either the study drug or placebo. The study is double-blinded study, meaning you and your study doctor will not know what you are receiving, the study efzofitimod or placebo.

The study is sponsored by aTyr Pharma, Inc. Participation in the study will require 9 visits to the MUSC main campus and will have the following procedures completed over the course of your participation: blood draw, urine collection, physician-led assessments of your disease (for example physical exam and skin thickness testing), tests to assess your pulmonary function and health (Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) and High Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT)), electrocardiogram, as well as asked to complete surveys.

Summary

This study is enrolling subjects with advanced solid tumors with the TP53 Y220C alteration in cancer cells. This alteration is a mutation of the tumor that can be found through laboratory tests that use a sample of tissue, blood, or other fluids to check for signs of cancer. This study involves research testing the safety, best dose, side effects and timing of the study drug called PC1486. You will take the study drug, PC14586, in the form of a tablet. If assigned to the combination treatment arm (Part 1), you will also be given pembrolizumab as an intravenous (IV) infusion. Pembrolizumab is a type of immunotherapy that is FDA approved to treat your kind of cancer. The study drug PC1486 is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This study drug targets the TP53 Y220C genetic alteration in tumor cells. During the pre-screening portion, participants will provide either archived tissue or a fresh tumor sample to test for the genetic alteration. If the participants show the genetic tumor alteration in the cancer cells, they may be asked to participate in the trial. Treatment arms are groups or subgroups of participants in a clinical trial. This study will have two arms: one studies PC1486 alone and the second arm studies PC1486 in combination with Pembrolizumab against advanced solid tumors. PC14586 is a small molecule (chemical) that is designed to act on the genetic alteration TP53 Y220C in cancer cells to slow the growth of cancer, and it is taken orally. This study involves blood tests, a possible tumor biopsy, CT, and MRI scans. The study will last approximately 6 months of treatment, followed up by a check-up after the first 3 weeks and every 3 months after. Some common risks (observed in greater than 20% of people) include: Nausea, Vomiting, Abnormal liver tests, Abnormal kidney test (possible kidney damage
