Myopathy clinical trials at University of California Health

12 in progress, 6 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • CAP-1002 in Ambulatory and Non-Ambulatory Patients With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    open to eligible males ages 10 years and up

    HOPE-3 is a two cohort, Phase 3, multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of a cell therapy called CAP-1002 in study participants with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and impaired skeletal muscle function. Non-ambulatory and ambulatory boys and young men who meet eligibility criteria will be randomly assigned to receive either CAP-1002 or placebo every 3 months for a total of 4 doses during the first 12-months of the study. All participants will be eligible to receive 4 doses of CAP-1002 for an additional 12 months as part of an open-label extended assessment period.

  • Nipocalimab in Participants With Active Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathies

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Nipocalimab versus placebo in participants with active idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM).

  • Efgartigimod PH20 SC in Adult Participants With Active Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathy.

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study's purpose is to measure the treatment response from efgartigimod PH20 SC compared with placebo in participants with Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathy (IIM). Participants with the IIM subtypes of dermatomyositis (DM), immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy (IMNM), or certain other subtypes of polymyositis (PM; including antisynthetase syndrome [ASyS]) will be included in the study. Treatment response will be measured by Total improvement score (TIS). Additional information can be found on https://myositis-study.com/.

  • Understand How the Study Medicine (PF-06823859) Works in People With Active Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathies [Dermatomyositis (DM) and Polymyositis (PM)]

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of the study is to understand how the study medicine PF-06823859 works in people with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (DM and PM). These disorders cause inflammation that weakens the muscles that are important for movement and may also cause skin rash in people with DM. This study is seeking participants who: - Are 18 years of age or older or minimum legal adult age as defined per local regulation, whichever is greater - Have active DM or active PM. - Are receiving a stable dose of 1 corticosteroid taken by mouth and/or 1 traditional immunosuppressant. - Note: Corticosteroids and immunosuppressants are medicines that help reduce inflammation and may signal to the immune system not to attack the body. Dermatomyositis (DM) is a rare disease that causes muscle inflammation that results in muscle weakness and low muscle stamina. Patients with DM have a characteristic skin rash. Polymyositis (PM) is a rare disease that involves mainly muscle inflammation resulting in muscle weakness, that can sometimes be painful. Patients with DM and PM may have trouble going up the steps, walking or getting to a standing position. Some of the participants will receive the study medicine (PF-06823859) and some will receive placebo (which is similar to study medicine but contains no medicine in it). The study medicine or placebo will be given as an intravenous (IV) infusion (directly into the veins), which takes about1 hour; every 4 weeks from Day 1 to Week 48 of the study. Both PF-06823859 and placebo and will be given at the study site. The study will compare the experiences of people receiving study medication to those of the people who do not. This will help to see if PF-06823859 is safe and effective. Participants will take part in this study for about 13 months. During this time, participants will have 15 study visits. These visits will be performed at the study site.

  • Characterization of Inclusion Body Myopathy Associated With Paget's Disease of Bone and Frontotemporal Dementia (IBMPFD)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The investigators are researching families with inherited inclusion body myopathy (IBM) and/or Paget disease of bone (PDB) and/or dementia (FTD) which is also called IBMPFD. IBMPFD is caused by mutations in the VCP gene. Our main goal is to understand how changes in the VCP gene cause the muscle, bone and cognitive problems associated with the disease. The investigators are collecting biological specimen such as blood and urine samples, family and medical histories, questionnaire data of patients with a personal or family history of VCP associated disease. Participants do not need to have all symptoms listed above in order to qualify. A select group of participants may be invited to travel to University of California, Irvine for a two day program of local procedures such as an MRI and bone scan. Samples are coded to maintain confidentiality. Travel is not necessary except for families invited for additional testing.

  • Long-term Safety and Efficacy of a Subcutaneous Formulation of Efgartigimod in Adults With Active Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathy

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The purpose of this study is to measure the long-term safety and tolerability of efgartigimod PH20 SC in adult participants with IIM who previously participated in ARGX-113-2007. Secondary objectives include efficacy measures of efgartigimod PH20 SC in participants with IIM.

  • Extension of AOC 1001-CS1 (MARINA) Study in Adult Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 (DM1) Patients

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    AOC 1001-CS2 (MARINA-OLE) is a Phase 2 extension of the AOC 1001-CS1 (MARINA) study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, efficacy, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of multiple-doses of AOC 1001 Administered Intravenously to Adult Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 (DM1) patients

  • Gene Transfer Clinical Study in X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a multinational, open-label, ascending-dose, delayed-treatment concurrent control clinical study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of AT132 in subjects with X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy aged less than 5 years old. Subjects will receive a single dose of AT132 and will be followed for safety and efficacy for 10 years

  • ManNAc for GNE Myopathy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    GNE myopathy is a rare genetic muscle disease characterized by progressive muscle atrophy and weakness. The disease is caused by mutations in the gene that encodes the enzyme that initiates and regulates N-acetylneuraminic acid (Neu5Ac) biosynthesis and glycan sialylation. Currently, there is no therapy available for this disease. N-Acetylmannosamine (ManNAc), an orphan drug in development for GNE myopathy, is an uncharged monosaccharide and the first committed precursor in Neu5Ac biosynthesis. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial the efficacy and long-term safety of ManNAc will be evaluated in subjects with GNE myopathy.
