Keywords

Summary

This study is testing an experimental drug called "LY3819253" that will provide antibodies that is thought to fight the COVID-19 virus.The subject will receive the study drug (either the experimental study drug or the placebo) only once, on the day he/she joins the study (study "Day 0"). The subject will get it by an intravenous (IV) drip through a tube attached to a needle in the arm. This is called an infusion. As part of the study the subject will also get a study drug called remdesivir once a day intravenously for up to 10 days while in the hospital, as care for COVID-19, unless the study doctor thinks remdesivir would not be safe to be taken. The study will last for 90 days.

Identification of Molecular and Genetic Variations Underlying Skin Diseases

Date Added

PRO Number

List of Studies

Keywords

Summary

Genetic changes to human skin contribute to a wide variety of conditions and diseases that affect over 20% of the population. However, the genes and molecules that are responsible for human skin development and disease are not fully understood, preventing the development of treatment options. This proposal seeks to better understand one disease in particular, linear morphea, a form of Sclerederma that can affect the skin, muscle, and bone. This study will recruit subjects to collect and use skin tissue for the purpose of identifying the genetic causes of linear morphea.

Researcher
Blaithin McMahon

List of Studies


Keywords
Coronavirus, Infectious Diseases, Kidney
Summary

To assess the safety, tolerability and effects of SBI-101 therapy in COVID-19 subjects with acute kidney injury (AKI) receiving renal replacement therapy. The study product is a device that is added to the dialysis machine and is being developed by Sentien Biotechnologies. Not everyone will receive the study product. A total of 8 subjects will receive the study product and 4 subjects will receive their standard of care treatment. The study product, called SBI-101, is a device that is added to the dialysis machine. Inside the device are human mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC). These cells do not enter your blood. The study duration is approximately 6 months.

Assessing prior SARS-CoV-2 infection among the general population in Charleston, South Carolina: a community seroprevalence study

Date Added
September 1st, 2020
PRO Number
Pro00103008
Researcher
Michael Sweat

List of Studies


Keywords
COVID-19, Coronavirus, Infectious Diseases, Non-interventional, SARS-CoV-2
Summary

Understanding the current epidemiology of COVID-19 is of urgent importance in light of the continued pandemic. Given current testing guidelines, the number of individuals within the Charleston, South Carolina area who have had COVID-19 is unknown. Many such individuals may have been asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic. Thus, the number of confirmed cases, those who are or have been symptomatic and tested for COVID-19, is most likely a significant underrepresentation of the community seroprevalence of the virus. The purpose of this study is to determine the number of prior COVID-19 infections that are present in the Charleston area among adults, and to evaluate characteristics associated with infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19.

Colonizing Microbiome as a Determinant of COVID-19 Outcome

PRO Number
Pro00102644
Researcher
Alexander Alekseyenko

List of Studies


Keywords
Coronavirus, Immune System, Infectious Diseases, Non-interventional, SARS-CoV-2
Summary

COVID-19 testing involves collection of swabs from nasopharyngeal cavities where the SARS-CoV-2 virus replicates. Many other commensal and pathogenic microbes may be found in the same host niche. Collectively, these microbes are called the microbiome. We hypothesize that the colonizing microbiome at the time of diagnosis may provide leads for early stratification of cases into risk categories, future clinical manifestations of the disease, and insights into treatment strategies.

Summary

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) is developing a COVID-19 biorepository which will contain blood, urine, and other bodily fluids along with relevant medical information from individuals evaluated, exposed to, or treated for COVID-19. To learn from this pandemic ,and to develop treatments and strategies to better prepare and avert future pandemics we must study the disease and its effects. The clinical specimens in the biorepository will be available for investigators to use for future research. Compensation is provided for participation in this project for eligible participants.

PRO Number
Pro00094024
Researcher
Sandra Fowler

Summary

This study is designed to gain a better understanding and natural history of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM).

This study will include reviewing medical records to record information about the medications taken to treat AFM and your social history (smoking, alcohol and drug use). The results of lab tests, imaging studies and tests will also be collected to determine if you have any damage to your nerves that are done by your clinical care team to diagnose your AFM.

Samples from Mouth, nose, stool and blood will be collected as a part of this study. Any remaining spinal fluid that is in the lab from the spinal tap from clinical labs will also be collected. A neurological exam and tests to determine issues with muscles, functionality and strength after being diagnosed with AFM will also be performed as a part of this study.
