The purpose of this study is to see if a vaccine that is being developed to prevent people from getting sick with COVID-19 is safe and effective and also to see how well it is tolerated. Participants will receive a shot of either the vaccine or a placebo twice: once on Day 1 and a booster shot on Day 57. Participants will have blood drawn several times over a 24 month period to assess the immune system response (how your body fights off the virus). Participation will last about 24 months. Participants will receive payment in return for their time and effort.
he purpose of this study is to see if a vaccine that is being developed to prevent people from getting sick with COVID-19 is safe and effective and also to see how well it is tolerated. Participants will receive a shot of either the vaccine or a placebo twice: once on Day 1 and a booster shot about 3 weeks later.
The procedures in this study include:
• two injections given 3 weeks apart into your upper arm
• swabs of your nose (nasal swabs) if you develop symptoms of COVID-19
• keeping records of your body temperature and symptoms of COVID-19 (if any)
• blood tests
Participation will last about 24 months. Participants will receive payment in return for their time and effort.
This clinical study is testing the safety (if there are side effects) and tolerability of CB-280 in approximately 32 subjects with CF. This study is being conducted to indentify which CB-280 doses are safe to take without causing too many side effects. CB-280 is an investigational drug that is taken by mouth that blocks an enzyme called arginase, which is thought to play an important role in promoting lung infection in cystic fibrosis (CF). Participation in the study will be up to 56 days long.
The purpose of this research study is to collect phlegm and blood to learn more about the presence of bacteria in patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) or Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis (NCFB). This exploratory research study does not involve the administration of any medication. There are approximately 4 visits (1 visit to see for subject eligibility, and 3 visits during the study) to complete the study participation. The study will take two months. About 100 subjects will take part study-wide.
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.
This study is designed to evaluate ABBV-3067 alone and in combination with ABBV-2222 to see how safe they are and how well they work for treating cystic fibrosis. The study will also help select the minimum effective dose of both medicines. Both drugs are investigational and will be taken orally. Both help to restore Cystic Fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) activity, which is when there isn't enough water on membrane surfaces for those who have cystic fibrosis. You will either receive the drug or a placebo. The study will be done in approximately 3 months. Approximately 189 patients with cystic fibrosis who are older than 18 years of age will be enrolled in this study.
The main purpose of this study is to see if important factors can be identified in each of the three categories (patient, catheter, and catheter management) that are linked to blood clotting complications. This is a multicenter, prospective observational study to evaluate risk factors associated with complications of peripherally inserted central catheter (PICCs) and midline catheters. Both adult and pediatric patients with CF who receive care at participating centers will be eligible for participation. This study can last for 2 weeks.
This study has two parts and will assess your hearing and the potential effects of antibiotic-induced ototoxicity. Ototoxicity is a potential effect of drugs used to treat your lung infections, and its effect on your ears (oto=ears), particularly structures in your inner ear that enable hearing and balance. Part One of the study will assess your inner ear function that may be associated with hearing loss and / or loss of balance in cystic fibrosis patients taking tobramycin. Part Two is looking to determine if SPI-1005, an investigational drug, influences hearing loss, due to mediations (tobramycin).
Lamprene®/Clofazimine, is a product of the pharmaceutical company named Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation. Lamprene®/Clofazimine is approved by FDA (the U.S Food and Drug Administration) for the treatment of leprosy. It is being tested in non-Novartis clinical studies for drug resistant tuberculosis and non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM).
If you have been diagnosed with NTM, then your doctor may decide that this infection can be treated with Lamprene®/Clofazimine. This medicine is provided to you in an expanded access program. This means that this medicine is not registered for the treatment of NTM, but it can be used in special situations where there are no other possible treatments. For example, this may be because you have a type of Mycobacterial infection that is resistant or failed to respond optimally to other drugs, or because you have had side effects that prevent the use of other drugs.
