  • A Study of Antibodies in the Blood in Patients With Auto-Immune Neurological Diseases

    “Do you have multiple sclerosis or another autoimmune disease? We are studying specific antibodies that may have an impact on your health.”

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Under normal conditions our immune system protects us against infections and tumors. The immune system does this by recognizing that the infecting organism or the tumor is foreign to the body and attacking it. One way the immune system attacks a foreign target is by making proteins called antibodies that bind to the target. Sometimes, for reasons we poorly understand, the immune system wrongly identifies part of our own body as being foreign and attacks it. This can result in disease such as some forms of diabetes and thyroid disease, as well as some neurological diseases. In this study, one tablespoon of blood will be removed from each subject and tested to see if the immune system is making antibodies against components of the nerves and muscles. We also hope to learn if these antibodies contribute to the development or worsening of illnesses of the nervous system. Only one blood draw is required, but subjects may be asked to give up to 8 additional blood samples to see if the level of antibodies changes over time. Any additional blood draws would be performed at regularly scheduled clinic visits. There would be at least 3 months between blood draws over a period of up to 3 years, if requested by the physician. Depending on your diagnosis, the physician may also request the collection of mouth (buccal) cells. This takes about one minute and is painless. The cells are collected by swishing a swab around your mouth. This cheek swab would be done with each blood draw. Please note that this study is conducted ONLY at UC Davis and that all participants must be seen in our clinic located in Sacramento, CA. Results of the testing performed in this study are not given to the participants. This study is not intended to treat or diagnose any condition.

  • A Study of Nipocalimab in Children Aged 2 to Less Than 18 Years With Generalized Myasthenia Gravis

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of nipocalimab on total serum immunoglobulin G (IgG) in pediatric participants 2 to less than (<) 18 years of age, the safety and tolerability of treatment with nipocalimab in children and adolescents and to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of nipocalimab in children and adolescents with generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG) who have an insufficient clinical response to ongoing, stable standard-of-care therapy.

  • A Study of TAK-079 in People With Generalized Myasthenia Gravis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune condition that causes muscle weakness. Autoimmune means the body makes antibodies that attack its own cells and tissues. These types of antibodies are also known as autoantibodies. People with generalized myasthenia gravis have a weakness in many muscles. TAK-079 is a medicine to help people with generalized myasthenia gravis. The main aim of this study is to check if people with generalized myasthenia gravis have side effects from 2 doses of TAK-079. Other aims are to learn if TAK-079 improves their clinical condition and lowers their autoantibody levels. At the first visit, the study doctor will check if each person can take part. For those who can take part, participants will continue with their standard medicines for this condition during the study. Each participant will have a check-up by the study doctor. Then, the participants will have 1 of 3 treatments: - A low dose of TAK-079. - A high dose of TAK-079. - A placebo. In this study, a placebo looks like TAK-079 but does not have any medicine in it. Participants will not know which treatment they received, nor will their study doctors. This is to help make sure the results are more reliable. For each treatment, participants will receive injections just under the skin, once a week for 8 weeks. The study doctors will check for side effects from the study treatments. The study doctors can stop or delay the injections in each participant if needed. Then, the study doctors will continue to check for side effects for up to 24 weeks after treatment. They will also check the clinical condition of the participants, including their autoantibody levels.

  • Open-Label Extension of Zilucoplan in Subjects With Generalized Myasthenia Gravis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The RAISE-XT study is an open-label extension study to evaluate the long-term efficacy, safety, and tolerability of zilucoplan in subjects with gMG who have previously participated in a qualifying Ra Pharmaceuticals sponsored zilucoplan study.
