  • A Study of Prucalopride For Functional Constipation in Children and Teenagers

    open to eligible people ages 6 months to 17 years

    Functional constipation is a condition when it is very hard to pass a stool that is not due to any other health problem or to medicines being taken. This condition is more common in children and teenagers. This study has 2 parts: The main aim of the 1st part of the study is to learn if a medicine called prucalopride can improve bowel movements in children and teenagers with functional constipation. Another aim is to check for side effects from 2 different doses of prucalopride. The main aim of the 2nd part of the study is to continue to check for side effects from 2 different doses of prucalopride. In the 1st part, at the first visit, the study doctor will check who can take part. Participants who take part will be picked for 1 of 3 treatments by chance. - A low dose of prucalopride once a day. - A higher dose of prucalopride once a day. - A placebo once a day. In this study, a placebo will look like prucalopride but will not have any medicine in it. Participants will be treated with prucalopride or a placebo for 12 weeks. Participants who took prucalopride will continue to the 2nd part of the study. They will have the same treatment as they did in the 1st part of the study. They will continue with their treatment for another 36 weeks. Participants who took placebo in the 1st part of the study will receive prucalopride in the 2nd part of the study. They will be picked for a low dose or a high dose of prucalopride by chance. Participants will visit the clinic a few times during treatment. The clinic staff will also telephone the participants, or their parents or caregivers throughout treatment for a check-up 4 weeks after last treatment, the clinic staff will telephone the participants, or their parents or caregivers for a final check-up.

  • A Study of Prucalopride in Breastfeeding Women With Constipation

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    Prucalopride is a medicine used to treat constipation. The main aim of the study is to measure prucalopride concentrations in breast milk. Other aims are to check the growth and development of babies breastfed by their mothers who took prucalopride and to check if the babies had any side effects. During the study, participants will provide one set of milk samples over 24 hours using an electric breast pump. Breast milk samples will be collected at home and will be shipped to the laboratory. Also, participants will be asked questions during telephone interviews every 2 months in the first year of their baby's life. They will also be asked to complete growth and development questionnaires about their baby.

  • Post-Marketing Study of Prucalopride Safety In Pregnancy

    open to eligible females

    This study collects information on pregnant women with ongoing constipation who took prucalopride and those who did not take prucalopride. The main aim of the study is to learn if any medical problems in pregnant women or their infants might be related to taking prucalopride during pregnancy. Participants are not required to take prucalopride during the study. Participation begins after a pregnant woman has taken prucalopride. Women and their infants are followed during pregnancy and for 1 year after pregnancy to collect information on maternal, pregnancy, and infant outcomes. During the study, participants will be asked questions during 3 telephone interviews; 2 during pregnancy and 1 just after their expected delivery date. Participants who took or are taking prucalopride will be asked more detailed questions about this during these interviews. All information is collected remotely, and no visits to the study site are required. Also, all participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire about their baby when their baby is about 1 year old.

  • S1702 Isatuximab in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Primary Amyloidosis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies how well isatuximab works in treating patients with primary amyloidosis that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Monoclonal antibodies, such as isatuximab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread.
