Sjogren-Larsson Syndrome: Natural History, Clinical Variation and Evaluation of Biochemical Markers
Sjogren-Larsson syndrome (SLS) is a rare genetic disease in which patients typically exhibit ichthyosis (dry, scaly skin), intellectual disability, spasticity, seizures and a distinctive maculopathy. The purpose of this study is to define the clinical spectrum and natural history of Sjogren-Larsson syndrome, and identify biomarkers that correlate with disease phenotype while establishing a registry for future investigations of biochemical pathogenesis and therapy.
Specialist Recommendation on FBC (Familial Breast Cancer) Chemoprevention Prescribing
Some women are more likely to get breast cancer as it runs in their family, they are at risk of familial breast cancer. There are medications, called chemoprevention, which may lower their risk of developing breast cancer by a third. However chemoprevention can also cause serious side effects, like womb cancer and blood clots. This makes decision to start them difficult. Researchers found that not all women who can have these medications are on them. The investigators want to ask familial breast cancer specialists whether they recommend general practitioners (GP) to prescribe chemoprevention, by sending them a short survey. These...
Study of Brain and Spinal Cord Tumor Growth and Cyst Development in Patients With Von Hippel Lindau Disease
The purpose of this study is to learn more about the growth of brain and spinal cord tumors and cysts that develop in association with them in patients with von Hippel-Lindau disease. It will examine how fast the tumors grow and try to determine what factors (for example, puberty , pregnancy, menopause, blood proteins, etc.) affect their growth. Patients between the ages of 8 and 75 years who are enrolled in NIH s study of von Hippel-Lindau disease may be eligible for this 5-year study. Participants will have magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain and spinal cord and a thorough neurological history and examination at the...
Study of Combination of Ipilimumab and Nivolumab in Patients With Melanoma
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of treatment with Nivolumab in combination with Ipilimumab in subjects with resected Stages IIIB/IIIC/ IV melanoma.
Study of Crisaborole Ointment 2% in Mild to Moderate Atopic Dermatitis
The purpose of this study is to document the timing of improvement in atopic dermatitis symptoms and severity following the application of crisaborole ointment 2% in patients 2 years or older with mild to moderate atopic dermatitis. Crisaborole ointment 2% will be applied topically twice daily for four weeks and progress will be assessed by photography and patient-reports.
Study of Families With Twins or Siblings Discordant for Rheumatic Disorders
This study will examine families in which one sibling of a sibling pair, or twin pair, has developed a systemic rheumatic disease and one has not, to see if and how the two differ in the following: - Blood cell metabolism; - Types of cells in the blood; - Environmental exposures or genetic factors that might explain why one developed disease and the other did not. Families in which one sibling has developed a systemic rheumatic disease, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, dermatomyositis, or myositis, and the other has not, are eligible for this study. The siblings may...
Study on Newborn Babies With a Yellow Skin Color (Neonatal Jaundice Study)
Background: Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia is the most common reason for admission in the neonatal period (first month of life) worldwide and at SMRU. The skin of the newborn baby becomes jaundiced, which is caused by a high level of bilirubin in the blood. In some neonates the level of bilirubin increases to a level that can cause braindamage or even death. There are different causes known that can lead to higher levels of bilirubin, for example G6PD deficiency and prematurity. In case of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia the neonate needs to be treated with phototherapy (blue light therapy). If there is prolonged jaundice (≥ 21 days),...
Study to Assess the Long-term Safety, Tolerability, Efficacy of Secukinumab in Pediatric Patients of Age 6 to <18 Years, With Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis
This was an open-label, parallel-group, two-arm, multicenter study in pediatric subjects aged 6 years to less than 18 years, at randomization, with moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis. 84 subjects (most with moderate severity) were enrolled. Subjects were stratified by weight and disease severity.
Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of Lebrikizumab (LY3650150) in Adolescent Participants With Moderate-to-Severe Atopic Dermatitis
This is an open-label, single arm study of 52 weeks duration. The study will assess the safety and efficacy of lebrikizumab in adolescent participants (≥12 to <18 years weighing ≥40 kilograms) with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD) who are candidates for systemic therapy.
Study to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of PF-04965842 With or Without Topical Medications in Subjects Aged 12 Years and Older With Moderate to Severe Atopic Dermatitis
B7451015 is a Phase 3 study to evaluate Abrocitinib with or without Topical Medications in patients aged 12 years and older who have moderate to severe atopic dermatitis and have completed a qualifying Phase 3 study. The efficacy and safety of two dosage strengths of Abrocitinib, 100 mg and 200 mg taken orally once daily, will be evaluated over variable lengths of study participation. The study consists of a 92 week initial treatment period followed by a variable length secondary treatment period during which subjects will receive treatment with open-label abrocitinib until availability of commercial product in their country, or...
