Showing trials for
  • HZN-825 in Patients With Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, repeat-dose, multicenter trial. Participants will be screened within 6 weeks prior to the Baseline (Day 1) Visit. Approximately 300 participants who meet the trial eligibility criteria will be randomized on Day 1 in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive HZN-825 300 mg QD, HZN-825 300 mg BID or placebo for 52 weeks. The trial will include up to a 42-day Screening Period and a 52-week Double-blind Treatment Period. Participants will take their first dose of trial drug at the clinic and will participate in trial visits at Week 4 and every 6 weeks thereafter until Week 52. All participants who complete the Double-blind Treatment Period (Week 52) will be eligible to enter a 52-week extension trial (HZNP-HZN-825-302, NCT05626751). Participants not entering the extension trial will participate in a Safety Follow-up Visit 4 weeks after the last dose of trial drug.

  • People With Systemic Sclerosis to Test Whether Avenciguat (BI 685509) Has an Effect on Lung Function and Other Systemic Sclerosis Symptoms

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study is open to adults aged 18 and older or above legal age who have systemic sclerosis. People can participate if they have a specific subtype called diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis. People with another subtype called limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis can also participate if they are anti Scl-70 antibody positive. Systemic sclerosis is also called scleroderma. The purpose of this study is to find out whether a medicine called Avenciguat (BI 685509) helps people with scleroderma who have symptoms due to lung fibrosis or vascular problems. Participants are put into 2 groups by chance. One group takes Avenciguat (BI 685509) tablets 3 times a day and the other group takes placebo tablets 3 times a day. Placebo tablets look like BI 685509 tablets but do not contain any medicine. Participants take the tablets for at least 11 months. Afterwards, participants can continue to take the tablets until the last participant has completed the 11-months treatment period. This means that the time in the study and duration of treatment is different for each participant, depending on when they start the study. At the beginning of the study, participants visit the study site every 2 weeks. The time between the visits to the study site gets longer over the course of the study. After the 11-months treatment period, participants visit the study site every 3 months. During the study, participants regularly do lung function tests. The results are compared between the 2 groups to see whether the treatment works. The participants also regularly fill in questionnaires about their scleroderma symptoms. The doctors regularly check participants' skin condition and general health and take note of any unwanted effects.

  • Belimumab in Adults With Systemic Sclerosis Associated Interstitial Lung Disease

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study investigates the efficacy and safety of belimumab compared to placebo, in addition to standard therapy, for the treatment of participants with systemic sclerosis associated interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD). The study will evaluate the effect of belimumab treatment on lung function as well as on extra-pulmonary disease manifestations, including skin thickening and general symptoms, such as fatigue, that impact quality of life (QoL).

  • Nivolumab in Treating Patients With Autoimmune Disorders and Advanced, Metastatic, or Unresectable Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase Ib trial studies the side effects of nivolumab and to see how well it works in treating patients with autoimmune disorders and cancer that has spread to other places in the body or cannot removed by surgery. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

  • HZNP-HZN-825-301 in Adult Participants With Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis (Diffuse Cutaneous SSc)

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Primary Objectives: 1. The primary efficacy objective is to assess the efficacy of 52 weeks of open-label treatment with HZN-825 in participants with diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis, as measured by change from both baselines in forced vital capacity percent (FVC %) predicted. 2. The primary safety objective is to examine the safety and tolerability of 52 weeks of open-label treatment with HZN-825, inclusive of, but not limited to, adverse events (AEs), serious AEs (SAEs) and the adverse event of special interest (AESI), from Day 1 to 4 weeks after last dose.

  • Scleroderma Treatment With Autologous Transplant (STAT) Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies how well giving cyclophosphamide and anti-thymocyte globulin together followed by peripheral blood stem cell transplant (PBSCT) and mycophenolate mofetil works in treating patients with systemic scleroderma (SSc). Stem cells are collected from the patient's blood and stored prior to treatment. To store the stem cells patients are given colony-stimulating factors, such as filgrastim (G-CSF) or chemotherapy (cyclophosphamide) to help stem cells move from the bone marrow to the blood so they can be collected and stored. After storage, patients are then given high-dose chemotherapy, cyclophosphamide, and immunosuppression with anti-thymocyte globulin to suppress the immune system to prepare for the transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy and immunosuppression. After the stem cells have "engrafted" and have matured enough to support the immune system at approximately 2-3 months, patients are given a medication called mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) or Myfortic. This medication is given to prevent worsening or reactivation of SSc and is referred to as maintenance therapy.
