Showing trials for
  • COVID-19 Booster Vaccine in Autoimmune Disease Non-Responders

    open to eligible people ages 2 years and up

    This is a randomized, multi-site, adaptive, open-label clinical trial comparing the immune response to different additional doses of COVID-19 vaccine in participants with autoimmune disease requiring IS medications. All study participants will have negative serologic or suboptimal responses (defined as a Roche Elecsys® Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S result ≤200 U/mL) or a low immune response (defined as a Roche Elecsys® Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S result >200 U/ml and ≤2500 U/mL) to their previous doses of COVID-19 vaccine. The study will focus on 5 autoimmune diseases in adults: - Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) - Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) - Multiple Sclerosis (MS) - Systemic Sclerosis (SSc), and - Pemphigus. This study will focus on 4 autoimmune diseases in pediatric participants: - Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) - Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) - Pediatric-Onset Multiple Sclerosis (POMS) - Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM)

  • Effect of Anti-inflammatory Diet in Rheumatoid Arthritis

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    In a previous exploratory study, the investigators observed an effect on disease activity outcomes of anti-inflammatory diet. The investigators also observed change in microbiome and circulating metabolites. The current study will determine whether or not the addition of anti-inflammatory diet improves the clinical outcomes in participants with rheumatoid arthritis, and the role of microbiome and circulating metabolites.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis Shared Decision Making

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Shared decision making is the first overarching principle for the treat to target guidelines for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and has been proposed as a potential mechanism to reduce health disparities, however there is little evidence to inform effective ways to implement this practice in the care of Veterans with RA. The purpose of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of a multi-component shared decision making intervention on RA disease activity, adherence to RA medications and patient knowledge of RA. The proposed research will contribute to fundamental knowledge about how to effectively foster shared decision making across varied VA rheumatology clinical settings to improve patient disease outcomes and experience; and support clinicians to engage patients in meaningful ways with the ultimate goal to improve health, reduce disability, and eliminate disparities.

  • OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project

    open to eligible females

    The purpose of the OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Study is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to certain medications, to evaluate the possible teratogenic effect of these medications and to follow live born infants for five years after birth. With respect to fetal outcome, it is important to evaluate the spectrum of outcomes that may be relevant to a medication exposure during pregnancy, and these include both easily recognizable defects which are visible at birth, as well as more subtle or delayed defects that may not be readily identifiable without special expertise and observation beyond the newborn period.

  • CD40L Antagonism in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Patients with moderately-to-highly active Rheumatoid arthritis receive a 12-week VIB4920 treatment with Tumor necrosis factor alpha inhibitor (TNFi) compared to background disease-modifying (RA) therapy with TNFi and without the addition of VIB4920. The primary objective is to determine if the addition of a 12-week course of treatment with VIB4920 to a TNFi in patients with RA who have had an inadequate response to a TNFi results in improved clinical disease control.

  • Multidisciplinary Approach for Treat To Target In Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This research will evaluate a multifaceted patient-centered intervention in a sample of socioeconomically disadvantaged Hispanic adults with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) that capitalizes on a partnership between the extended rheumatology healthcare team and each patient in order to promote understanding, uptake and adherence to the principles of treat-to-target strategy. The primary hypothesis of this study is that the addition of a multifaceted intervention incorporating integrated multidisciplinary rheumatologic care, nurse-directed self-management education and supportive follow-up, and technology-based at home RA symptom monitoring and reporting to clinical guideline-based care will increase RA remission rate at 6 months.

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

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    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.

  • Study to Evaluate Adverse Events and Change in Disease Activity in Participants Between 18 to 75 Years of Age Treated With Subcutaneous (SC) Injections of ABBV-154 for Moderately to Severely Active Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory disease of the joints causing pain, stiffness, swelling and loss of joint function. This study evaluates how safe and effective ABBV-154 is in participants treated for moderately to severely active RA. Adverse events and change in the disease activity will be assessed. ABBV-154 is an investigational drug being evaluated for the treatment of RA. Study doctors place the participants in 1 of 5 treatment groups or arms, each arm receiving a different treatment. There is a 1 in 5 chance that participants will be assigned to placebo. Participants 18-75 years of age with moderate to severe RA will be enrolled. Around 425 participants will be enrolled in the study in approximately 270 sites worldwide. The study is compromised of a 12 week placebo-controlled period, a double-blind long term extension (LTE) period 1 of 66 weeks, a LTE period 2 of 104 weeks and a follow-up visit 70 days after the last dose of the study drug. In the LTE period 1, participants in the placebo group will be re-randomized to receive ABBV-154 in 2 different doses SC every other week (eow). Other participants will remain on their previous dose and dosing regimen of ABBV-154. There may be higher treatment burden for participants in this trial compared to their standard of care. Participants will attend regular visits during the study at a hospital or clinic. The effect of the treatment will be checked by medical assessments, blood tests, checking for side effects and completing questionnaires.
