An Investigation of the Metal Concentration in Patients Implanted With the PRESTIGE LP™ Cervical Disc at Two Contiguous Levels in the Cervical Spine
This clinical study will assess the metal concentrations present in the blood serum of patients who receive surgical treatment with the PRESTIGE LP™ Cervical Disc at two contiguous cervical levels from C3-C7. The information obtained from this clinical investigation will be used to support the post market surveillance for a PMA supplement for the PRESTIGE LP™ Cervical Disc implanted at two contiguous levels.
An Observational Registry of Abatacept in Patients With Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
The purpose of this study is to examine the long-term safety of Abatacept for the treatment of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) with particular in interest in the occurrence of serious infections, autoimmune disorders, and malignancies.
An Observational Study on Sarilumab-exposed Pregnancies
Primary Objective: To evaluate the relative risk of major structural birth defects, specifically a pattern of anomalies, in sarilumab-exposed pregnancies compared to disease-matched unexposed pregnancies. Secondary Objective: To evaluate the risk for sarilumab-exposure relative to the group of healthy pregnant women, and the effect of exposure on other adverse pregnancy and infants outcomes.
An Open-label, Ascending, Repeated Dose-finding Study of Sarilumab in Children and Adolescents With Polyarticular-course Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (pcJIA)
Primary Objective: To describe the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of sarilumab in patients aged 2-17 years with Polyarticular-course Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (pcJIA) in order to identify the dose and regimen for adequate treatment of this population Secondary Objective: To describe the pharmacodynamic (PD) profile, the efficacy and the long-term safety of sarilumab in patients with pcJIA.
Anterior Vertebral Body Tethering (AVBT) Using Zimmer Biomet Tether System or Dynesys System Components to Treat Pediatric Scoliosis
The Researchers want to assess the short-term safety of Anterior Vertebral Body Tethering (AVBT) in skeletally immature subjects with moderate to severe scoliosis and compare them with a fusion cohort.
Antimicrobial Barrier Dressing Versus Closed-incision Negative Pressure Therapy in the Obese Primary Total Joint Arthroplasty
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an occlusive antimicrobial barrier dressing or portable negative pressure wound dressing is superior in preventing wound complications and infection rates in obese patients undergoing total joint arthroplasty (TJA). Approximately 240 subjects (120 for total knee arthroplasty and 120 for total hip arthroplasty) will be enrolled to evaluate the outcomes associated with silver impregnated dressings and negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in treating this subset of patients and analyze the cost benefit of each.
A Phase 2, Open Label, PK Study of TLC599 in Subject With Osteoarthritis of the Knee
This study is a single-center, Phase 2, open-label, 1-period, parallel study with 9 cohorts of subjects with OA of the knee enrolled to receive single-dose of TLC599 or DSP via IA injection.
A Phase 2 Study of KZR-616 to Evaluate Safety and Efficacy in Patients With Active Polymyositis or Dermatomyositis
"This is a Phase 2 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover, multicenter study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, efficacy, Pharmacokinetics (PK) and Pharmacodynamics (PD) of treatment with KZR-616 in patients with active Polymyositis (PM) or Dermatomyositis (DM). Patients will be evaluated for eligibility during the Screening Period. Eligible patients will be randomized 1:1 to Arm A or Arm B of the study. During the 32-week treatment period, patients will receive study drug subcutaneously (SC) once weekly with 2 treatment periods of 16 weeks each. This study will be conducted on an outpatient basis.
A Pilot Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Oral Treprostinil in the Treatment of Calcinosis in Patients With Systemic Sclerosis
This is a prospective open-label trial that will enroll 12 patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) and at least one calcinotic lesion of the hands that is palpable on physical examination and also measureable on hand radiographs, at one single center. Each subject will receive treprostinil orally for 12 months, and follow-up evaluations will be performed every 3 months. Our main objective is to determine whether oral treprostinil is safe, and effective in reducing calcinosis in patients with SSc. We hypothesize that calcinosis is a result of microvascular injury and ischemic damage, and that therefore treprostinil may be beneficial in the...
A Pivotal Study of the Premia Spine TOPS™ System
The purpose of this trial is to assess whether the Total Posterior Spine System (TOPS System) is more effective than transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) when used to stabilize a single lumbar level (L2 - L5) following surgical decompression in patients diagnosed with (1) at least moderate lumbar spinal stenosis, and (2) Grade 1 spondylolisthesis (or retrolisthesis), and (3) thickening of the ligamentum flavum or scarring of the facet joint capsule. Success will be assessed by means of a composite endpoint that measures improvement in in patient reported outcomes and the absence of any major device related complications.
