This study will evaluate subjects with adult- and childhood-onset myositis to learn more about their cause and the immune system changes and medical problems associated with them. Myositis is an inflammatory muscle disease that can damage muscles and other organs, resulting in significant disability. Children or adults with polymyositis or dermatomyositis or a related condition may be evaluated under this study. Healthy children or adults will also be enrolled as "controls," for comparison of test results. All patients will undergo a complete history (including completing some questionnaires) and physical examination,...
This research study will determine whether orally administered ADX-629 is safe and has biochemical efficacy in patients with Sjögren-Larsson syndrome (SLS), a rare inherited disorder of fatty aldehyde metabolism The disease is caused by bi-allelic mutations in ALDH3A2, which results in deficient activity of fatty aldehyde dehydrogenase (FALDH) and leads to the build-up of harmful long-chain (C16-C20) aldehydes and alcohols. Accumulation of these lipids and their metabolic products in skin, brain and eyes is responsible for the symptoms, which persist lifelong. ADX-629 is an aldehyde trapping agent that is expected to eliminate fatty...
A clinical trial investigating the safety and effectiveness of Smith and Nephew's FDA-approved Porous Total Knee System, which is used to replace worn away and diseased knee joints. The aim of this study is to show that most patients who receive the Porous Total Knee System have reduced pain, greater mobility and a long-lasting implant post-surgery.
This is a Phase 2a, randomized, double-blind, proof-of-concept, single-center study evaluating the safety, tolerability, and whole blood concentration of TP-05 (lotilaner) in the killing of ticks after they have attached to human skin.
The main purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of LY3361237 in participants with at least moderately active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Study will last up to 34 weeks and may include up to 15 visits.
The purpose of this study is to collect long-term safety data of subcutaneous (SC) ustekinumab
Differentiating between septic arthritis and other causes of joint inflammation in pediatric patients is challenging and of the utmost importance because septic arthritis requires surgical debridement as part of the treatment regimen. The current gold standard to diagnose septic arthritis in children is a positive synovial fluid culture; however, joint cultures may take several days to return. If a bacterial infection is present, it requires immediate surgical intervention in order to prevent lasting articular cartilage damage. Frequently surgeons must decide whether to surgically debride a joint before culture results are available....
This is Phase 2, multinational, randomized, blinded study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, efficacy, immunogenicity, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of ALPN-101 in adults with moderate to severe active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)
The overall goal is to improve shared decision-making (SDM) about treatment options and thereby enhance disease outcomes and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The objective of this study is to engage patients in using the ArthritisPower application on a weekly basis during the time between clinic appointments for collection of data on self-reported disease activity and patient-reported outcomes (PROs), and to display the data using an iPad to the patients and their rheumatology health care providers (HCPs) at the point of care for SDM.
This protocol is designed to study Orthofix regulatory approved and commercially available spine devices to generate Real World Evidence (RWE) of device safety and performance in the treatment of patients with spine injuries and/or disorders following the local medical standard of care. The clinical data generated from this study will support compliance to global regulatory requirements including but not limited to the European Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) for the applicable devices.
