There are about 5876 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Australia. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
This investigator driven Phase Ib study will examine the safety, efficacy and biological effects of two schedules of pembrolizumab, an antibody targeted against anti-programmed cell death 1 (PD-1), which will be given either before or after stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) for metastatic NSCLC.
The study is intended as a Proof of Concept and dose confirmation study. The primary objective of this study is to observe safety and tolerability of idronoxil (NOX66) in combination with radiotherapy (at palliative doses) in patients with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and to confirm dose in order to progress to Phase 2/3.
The purpose of this study is to collect additional safety and efficacy data during treatment with trifluridine / tipiracil in patients with a pretreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Eligible patients may receive an early access to trifluridine / tipiracil through this clinical study until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity, investigator decision, patient refusal or until market authorization or reimbursement has been granted by the relevant Authority of the country where that patient is treated or until trifluridine / tipiracil is available by a doctor's prescription or can be accessed from another source or Sponsor decision.
Fabry disease (FD) is a genetic disorder that leads to progressive accumulation of fat or 'sphingolipid' within the tissues, including the heart muscle and conductive tissue. Improvements in the detection of FD, together with more organised clinical services for rare diseases, has led to a rapid growth in the disease prevalence. Earlier and more frequent diagnosis of asymptomatic individuals before development of the disease itself has focused attention on early detection of organ involvement and closer monitoring of disease progression. Moreover, the introduction of enzyme replacement therapy within the last two decades has changed the natural history of FD as follows: a) increased life expectancy; b) improved morbidity; c) modification of the main cause of morbidity and mortality from renal (kidney) to cardiovascular (heart) events, including heart failure, abnormal heart rhythms, stroke and sudden death. Although symptoms such as palpitations and blackouts are extremely common, information on the frequency of proven abnormal heart rhythms is limited. In addition, the rate and appropriateness of implantation of life-saving devices is very variable, including pacemakers to boost the heart when too slow and cardio-defibrillators that stop the heart when too fast. The main markers of risk in similar diseases such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy cannot be used in FD. While patients are routinely followed up in clinic with heart tracings and echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart), a recent small study has emphasised that these tests under-estimate the burden of abnormal heart rhythms in patients with advanced FD. The use of continuous heart monitoring with an implantable loop recorder (ILR) has led to a significant change in treatment in 13 out of 15 of FD patients. The investigators believe that more frequent use of ILRs will identify a greater need for change in therapy in many more patients than currently treated, with the aim of reducing morbidity and mortality in this patient cohort. In addition this will provide valuable data to inform an estimate of future risk for these patients.
This study is investigating the combination of Brentuximab vedotin and lenalidomide in the treatment of relapsed/refractory peripheral T cell lymphoma or cutaneous T cell lymphoma or Hodgkin lymphoma. It is hypothesised that lenalidomide may augment the actions of Brentuximab vedotin in these patient groups. The primary objective of the study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose of the combination treatment, which can be used in subsequent studies. The study will also investigate disease response and survival. Participants will receive Brentuximab vedotin (once every 21 days i.e. 1 cycle) and lenalidomide (daily from day 1 -14 of each cycle) for a maximum of 48 weeks and will be followed for a subsequent 6 months after the end of treatment.
The primary objective of this study is to determine whether treatment with daratumumab administered subcutaneously (SC) prolongs progression-free survival (PFS) compared with active monitoring in participants with high-risk smoldering multiple myeloma (SMM).
This is a phase 1 safety study performed in male or female adult participants with an established diagnosis of severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss that meets the criteria for cochlear implantation and the participant has already chosen to undergo cochlear implant surgery.
This trial is investigating the inclusion of avelumab post long-course chemo-radiotherapy in patients with resectable locally advanced rectal cancer. It is hypothesised that this may enhance the pathological and imaging response rates whilst potentially reducing the relapse rates. Participants will receive standard long course chemoradiotherapy (LCCRT) treatment with radiotherapy and 5-fluorouracil (5 FU)/Capecitabine for 6 weeks, this then followed by 4 cycles of Avelumab and then surgical resection. The trial will measure disease response just prior to surgery and participants will be followed up for a minimum of 18 months (from study entry) and up to 42 months.
This study will generate new information on how to optimise brain targets with ECT stimulation.
This is a Phase 1 Study to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of AMG 596 in Subjects with Glioblastoma Expressing Mutant Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Variant III (EGFRvIII). This is a first in human (FIH), open-label, sequential-dose-escalation study in subjects with EGFRvIII-positive glioblastoma. This study will enroll 2 groups of subjects according to disease stage, recurrent disease (Group 1) and maintenance treatment after SoC in newly diagnosed disease (Group 2).
