Summary

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.

An Observational Long-Term Safety Surveillance Study Of Participants From Corbus Sponsored Lenabasum Pivotal Clinical Trials

Date Added
July 15th, 2020
PRO Number
Pro00101371
Researcher
Patrick Flume

List of Studies


Keywords
Cystic Fibrosis, Lung, Pulmonary
Summary

This observational research study will collect safety information from subjects who received study treatment (lenabasum or placebo) in a Corbus-sponsored pivotal clinical trial. This is being done to understand how stopping the study treatment affects the subject, and to make sure that the subject is not experiencing any side effects from stopping the study treatment. The subject will not be given any investigational drugs, including lenabasum or a placebo, in this study. The subject will be assessed (by telephone or office visit) approximately every 6 months for up to 2 years from the time of the last safety visit in a pivotal trial, unless Corbus stops studying lenabasum or decides to stop the study itself. The number of potential phone calls will depend on when the subject joins the study, but will not exceed 5 total. Approximately 100 subjects are expected to take part in this study in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific (APAC).

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.

A Phase 2 Study of ABBV-3067 Alone and in Combination with ABBV-2222 in Cystic Fibrosis Subjects Who Are Homozygous for the F508del Mutation

Keywords

Summary

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.

Summary

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.

A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Blind,Placebo-Controlled Study To Evaluate The Safety and Efficacy of SPI-1005 Capsules in Cystic Fibrosis Patients with Acute Pulmonary Exacerbation receiving IV Tobramycin at risk for Ototoxicity

Keywords

Summary

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).

Keywords

Summary

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.

Bronchiectasis and Nontuberculous Mycobacterium Patient Registry

Date Added

PRO Number

Researcher

List of Studies


Keywords

Summary

Non-cystic fibrosis (CF) bronchiectasis is a lung disease characterized by dilation of the airways. Patients often suffer from chronic airways infection. One such associated infection is non-tuberculosis mycobacterium (NTM) lung disease, which is 50 to 75 times more common in patients with bronchiectasis than those without it. The decision to initiate treatment (for NTM pulmonary disease) is not straightforward, hinging on how the patient feels and excluding other causes for their symptoms. Symptoms patients frequently report are pulmonary related (e.g. cough, sputum production, and coughing up blood) and constitutional symptoms (e.g. fevers, weight loss and body aches). When treatment is started for NTM lung disease, it can be for many months to years and has many potential side effects. The scientific literature rarely reports outcomes of treatment from a patient's perspective, which could aid a physician's decision to initiate treatment and/or response to treatment of the patient's NTM disease. This study will 1) create a Patient Registry for patients with bronchiectasis and/or NTM disease with an emphasis on patient reported outcomes (PRO) using questionnaires and 2) prospectively collect and analyze the clinical data for patients seen in the MUSC Bronchiectasis and/or NTM clinic
