Summary

This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2/3 adaptive study will first evaluate two doses of VX-147 in subjects with APOL1-mediated proteinuric kidney disease for 12 weeks to select a dose for Phase 3 and subsequently evaluate the efficacy and safety of the single, selected dose in the Phase 3 portion of the study.
The study comprises three periods: screening, treatment, and follow-up. The initial treatment period for Phase 2 is 12 weeks. Subjects enrolled for Phase 2 and Phase 3 who receive the non-selected dose will switch to the Phase 3 dose in a blinded manner after the Phase 3 dose is determined. The study will complete when 187 composite clinical outcome events are accrued among subjects in Phase 2 and Phase 3 who received placebo or the Phase 3 dose and when all enrolled subjects have at least 2 years of eGFR data.

A Double Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of PRA023 in Subjects with Systemic Sclerosis Associated with Interstitial Lung Disease (SSc-ILD)

List of Studies


Keywords
Autoimmune disease, Drug Studies, Rare Diseases, Scleroderma, Skin
Summary

The purpose of this study is to test whether a drug called PRA023 (the study drug) is a good treatment for patients with Systemic Sclerosis associated with Interstitial Lung Disease (SSc-ILD). The study drug PRA023 is an investigational drug that is given by infusion every 4 weeks. 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, PRA023 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 the PRA023 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. This will be done with the help of a computer-based program and you will have 50% chance of receiving either the study drug or placebo. The study is double-blinded study and 50 weeks long, meaning you and your study doctor will not know what you are receiving, the study drug or placebo.

The study is sponsored by Prometheus Biosciences, Inc. The study is being done at approximately 25 sites across the United States. The main portion of the study will require 15 visits to the MUSC main campus and will have the following procedures completed over the course of your participation: blood draw, 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. Compensation is available for participation.

Summary

This study is testing an IV infusion medication to treat painful pain episodes, called vaso-occulsive crises, in participants with Sickle Cell Disease. Participants will have a screening visit followed by a 24-hour inpatient hospitalization visit to receive the IV medication and then 8 follow up visits. The purpose of this study is to learn more about how a new potential drug for treating SCD symptoms affects the body and how the body processes it.

A Multi-center, Single-Dose and Repeat-Dose Over Eight Weeks, Sequential Cohort Study to Evaluate Safety and Tolerability as well as Pharmacokinetics of Two Different Doses of Alpha1-Proteinase Inhibitor Subcutaneous (Human) 15% Administered Subcutaneously in Subjects with Alpha1-Antitrypsin Deficiency

Summary

This study is designed to evaluate a new therapy formulation for Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD). AATD is an inherited condition in which a person has low blood levels of a protein known as alpha-1 protease inhibitor (called Alpha1-PI). AATD causes an increased risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the form of emphysema (long term lung disease) and, less frequently, other diseases.

This study is being conducted to evaluate the safety and tolerability of 2 different doses of Alpha-1 drugs (Alpha-1 15% and Liquid Alpha1-PI) in participants with AATD. Participants will be placed into one of two groups. Each group will receive both drugs at different points in the treatment period and because this is an "open label", study participants and the study staff know which dose of study drug participants receive. The study will last up to 486 days (16 months). Many visits are able to be conducted through home health care, lessening the need to come into the clinic.

Alpha-1 15% is an investigational product, meaning it is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The other drug in this study is Liquid Alpha1-PI (licensed as Prolastin®-C Liquid) and is an FDA approved treatment for adults with emphysema due to AATD. However, it is only approved for the recommended dose of 60 mg/kg. This study includes both the FDA approved 60mg/kg of Liquid Alpha1-PI and an experimental dose of 120 mg/kg that is not FDA approved. Alpha-1 15% is given as an injection under the skin and Liquid Alpha1-PI is given as an infusion into the veins.

You may or may not directly benefit from participation. However, you may help advance scientific knowledge in the treatment of AATD. Currently, the only FDA approved treatment for AATD is IV infusions of Liquid Alpha1-PI. Since the drug being studied, Alpha-1 15%, is injected with a small needle under your skin, there may be a benefit to future patients by providing flexibility of treatment route options as well as stability in serum alpha1-antitrypsin levels.

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.
