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

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    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 to Examine the Efficacy and Safety of Pozelimab and Cemdisiran Combination Therapy in Adult Patients With Symptomatic Generalized Myasthenia Gravis

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The primary objective is: To evaluate the effect of pozelimab + cemdisiran on daily functioning that is impacted by signs and symptoms in patients with symptomatic generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG) The secondary objectives of the study are: - To evaluate the effect of pozelimab + cemdisiran (ie, combination) and cemdisiran monotherapy on: - Clinician-assessed signs of myasthenia gravis (MG) and muscle strength - Daily functioning that is impacted by signs and symptoms in patients with symptomatic gMG (cemdisiran monotherapy only). - Proportion of patients with improvements in daily function that is impacted by signs and symptoms of MG - Proportion of patients that have improvements in clinician-assessed signs of MG and muscle strength - Health related quality of life - Proportion of patients with minimal MG symptoms - Patient- and clinician-reported signs and symptoms of MG - To evaluate the safety and tolerability of pozelimab + cemdisiran and cemdisiran monotherapy - To assess the concentration of total pozelimab in serum - To assess the concentrations of cemdisiran and its metabolites in plasma - To assess the immunogenicity of pozelimab - To assess the concentration of total C5 in plasma - To assess the immunogenicity of cemdisiran - To study the effect of pozelimab + cemdisiran and cemdisiran monotherapy on complement activation

  • 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.
