Summary

The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of night-time scratching on sleep patterns of children with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis using an investigational Emerald touchless sensor. This study is only recruiting volunteers who are enrolled into an atopic dermatitis registry known as Pedistad. Participation in this study will involve 3 visits over a period of 12 weeks. The information collected in this study may lead to an improved understanding of atopic dermatitis and may provide healthcare providers with important information for treating atopic dermatitis in the future.

Summary

In current Dermatology practice, options for vitiligo remain limited. The purpose of this study is to determine if once daily dosed topical rapamycin is effective for the treatment of patients with vitiligo. Participants will apply either 0.1% topical rapamcyin or 0.001% topical rapamycin for six months to a lesion on one side of the body, and topical placebo to a corresponding lesion on the opposite side of the body. The study also aims to evaluate patient satisfaction and identify any adverse effects on these dosing regimens.

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)

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

The purpose of this research study is to determine if an investigational cream, ruxolitinib cream (0.75% and 1.5% strengths), is safe and effective to treat Atopic Dermatitis. In this study, ruxolitinib cream will be compared to a "vehicle cream." The vehicle cream looks like the ruxolitinib cream but contains no ruxolitinib. This study can last up to 55 weeks. For the first 8 weeks participants will be randomly assigned to receive either the ruxolitinib cream or vehicle cream. For the following 44 weeks participants will receive the ruxolitinib cream.

Keywords

Summary

The purpose of this study is to test and compare the effects of investigational drug risankizumab to the active control, ustekinumab, on pediatric plaque psoriasis. Subjects that meet all eligibility criteria will be randomized 2:1 to receive 150 mg dose of risankizumab and 45mg or 90 mg dose of ustekinumab - both drug dosages are determined by weight. At Week 16, subjects receiving ustekinumab or are unresponsive to risankizumab, will be switched to or continue to receive 150 mg risankizumab every 12 weeks. Subjects that are responsive to risankizumab at Week 16, will be re-randomized 1:1 to continue risankizumab or withdrawal from the study drug. Subjects randomized to withdrawal will receive no study drug until a flare occurs, after which they will enter a 16-week re-treatment period.
