Dinutuximab With Chemotherapy, Surgery and Stem Cell Transplantation for the Treatment of Children With Newly Diagnosed High Risk Neuroblastoma
Recruiting
This phase III trial tests how well the addition of dinutuximab to Induction chemotherapy along with standard of care surgical resection of the primary tumor, radiation, stem cell transplantation, and immunotherapy works for treating children with newly diagnosed high-risk neuroblastoma. Dinutuximab is a monoclonal antibody that binds to a molecule called GD2, which is found on the surface of neuroblastoma cells, but is not present on many healthy or normal cells in the body. When dinutuximab bi... Read More

Testing the Role of DNA Released From Tumor Cells Into the Blood in Guiding the Use of Immunotherapy After Surgical Removal of the Bladder for Bladder Cancer Treatment, MODERN Study
Recruiting
This phase II/III trial examines whether patients who have undergone surgical removal of bladder, but require an additional treatment called immunotherapy to help prevent their bladder cancer from coming back, can be identified by a blood test. Many types of tumors tend to lose cells or release different types of cellular products including their DNA which is referred to as circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) into the bloodstream before changes can be seen on scans. Health care providers can measure t... Read More

A Trial to Learn if Dupilumab is Safe for and Helps Adult and Adolescent Participants With Eosinophilic Gastritis With or Without Eosinophilic Duodenitis
Recruiting
The study is researching an experimental drug called dupilumab. The study is focused on participants with active eosinophilic gastritis (EoG) with or without eosinophilic duodenitis (EoD). Participants with EoD only are not eligible for enrollment. EoG and EoD are uncommon, persistent, allergic/immune diseases in which eosinophils (a type of white blood cell) gather in large numbers in the stomach and small intestine and cause inflammation and damage. The aim of the study is to evaluate the eff... Read More

Recruiting
A study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of benralizumab administered subcutaneously in patients ≥ 6 to < 18 years of age with severe eosinophilic asthma, including a well-documented history of asthma exacerbations and uncontrolled asthma receiving high-dose inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) plus at least one additional controller medication.

Neonatal Phase 1 Valacyclovir Study
Recruiting
A Phase 1 study that will determine the valacyclovir dose that results in a systemic acyclovir exposure comparable to 10 mg/kg of parenterally administered acyclovir, which is an AUC0-12 of 24,000 ngxhr/mL to 48,000 ngxhr/mL. Neonates at risk of acquiring neonatal HSV will be enrolled in one of 2 cohorts. Cohort 1 will be comprised of eight subjects who will receive an initial dose of 10ml/kg of oral valacyclovir. Samples for PK assessments will be obtained to assess the exposure concentration.... Read More

A Long-term Follow-up Study of Sotatercept for PAH Treatment (MK-7962-004/A011-12)
Recruiting
This study is being conducted to assess the long-term safety, tolerability, and efficacy of sotatercept (MK-7962, formerly called ACE-011) in participants with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). This open-label, long-term follow-up (LTFU) study is supported by data from the PULSAR study (Phase 2, NCT03496207) in which treatment with sotatercept resulted in hemodynamic and functional improvements in the study participants, including those receiving maximal PAH therapy with double/triple drug...
