There are about 23 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Mongolia. 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.
The Phase II study to determine the safety and efficacy of V-Boost in treating a type of brain cancer called Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). V-Boost is an immunotherapy in which the patient's immune system will be modulated to eliminate tumor cells. V-Boost is made as an oral tablet which contains specially formulated hydrolyzed GBM antigens along with alloantigens. Patients are either newly diagnosed or with recurrent form of GBM who may have been subjected to surgery and/or chemo- or radiation therapy that ended up unsuccessful. The goal is to eradicate GBM tumor cells through daily oral administration of one pill of V-Boost immunotherapeutic vaccine, which so far has not shown any adverse reaction.
This Phase II will evaluate a new type of breast cancer immunotherapy based on a fundamentally new approach that has been successfully tested in a published clinical study of liver cancer. Investigators will test new tableted preparation, V3-MOMMO, obtained from hydrolyzed, inactivated blood and tumors of patients with breast cancer. Study will last 3 months, 20 patients will be recruited, given one pill per day for three months. The primary clinical endpoint is effect on tumor size and burden after 3 months. Secondary endpoint will be effect on levels of tumor markers on monthly basis compared to baseline.
This Phase II will evaluate a new type of ovarian cancer immunotherapy based on a fundamentally new approach that has been successfully tested in a published clinical study of liver cancer. We will test new tableted preparation, V3-OVA, obtained from hydrolyzed, inactivated blood and tumors of patients with cancer of ovaries. Study will last 3 months, 20 patients will be recruited, given one pill per day for three months. The primary clinical endpoint is effect on tumor size and burden after 3 months. Secondary endpoint will be effect on levels of tumor markers on monthly basis compared to baseline.
The goal of this trial is to evaluate the efficacy of immunotherapy for cervical cancer based on a fundamentally new approach. We will test new tableted preparation, V3-Cervix, obtained from hydrolyzed, inactivated blood and tumors of patients with cervical cancer. When administered orally, it should cause a specific anti-tumor immune response and an anti-inflammatory effect. Trial is planned to last 3 months, recruit 20 volunteers, administer daily pill of vaccine and evaluate effect on tumor size and tumor markers.
Myoma of the uterus or uterine fibroids are benign tumors that appears in the myometrium or the muscular layer of the uterus. It is one of the most common diseases in pre-climax women, reaching 12-25% of all gynecological diseases. There is an opinion that the true prevalence of myoma is much larger and reaches up to 80%, i.e., practically every second woman has it, often without knowing about. For the treatment of MM, surgical removal of the nodes or removal of the uterus is used. In addition, GnRH-agonist therapy is practiced, as well as embolization to block blood flow in the tumor. We propose to evaluate the immunotherapy approach in an open label Phase II study in 20 women with myoma, for whom no alternative therapy is available.
Endometriosis is a chronic gynecological disease characterized by sustained painful symptoms that are responsible for a decline in the quality of life of sufferers. Endometriosis is fairly common, affecting an estimated 10%-15% of women and girls, usually during their reproductive years. Based on these rough estimates, the latest epidemiological studies suggest that over 200 million women are might be affected who may commonly have infertility problems. Additionally, endometriosis is a major factor increasing by 33-66% risk of ovarian cancer. V-Endo is a tableted preparation derived from hydrolyzed, heat-inactivated, pooled blood of women with endometriosis. When taken orally it is postulated to cause the immune tolerance and anti-inflammatory effect as a result.
Pancreatic cancer (PDA) is the most lethal form of cancer, and the fourth-leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, with a survival rate of less than 7%.There are currently no treatments found to be effective for patients with advanced disease who are ineligible for surgery, a prognosis representing the majority of pancreatic cancer diagnoses. Pancreatic cancer is not amenable to chemotherapy as compared to other cancer types, leaving patients with practically no options except surgery. We have made oral tableted therapeutic vaccine, V3-P, derived from pooled blood of patients with PDA in line with similar highly promising approach we have adopted for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and cholangiocarcinoma (CAA). Patients with PDA will be given one tablet per day of V3-P and followed up to see the outcome.
Atherosclerosis vaccine, V6, has been through two small-scale Phase II open label clinical trials. It has shown significant improvement in lipid profile in patients with overweight or obesity
Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is a malignant neoplasm originating from the epithelial cells lining the intra- or extrahepatic biliary ducts. It is the second-most common liver cancer, after hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). About 6,000 people in the United States develop bile duct cancer each year. One-year survival is less than 25% and no effective and safe systemic treatments are currently available. Last year the completion of open-label phase 2 trial (NCT02256514) of hepcortespenlisimut-L (V5) has been reported, which has shown that two-third of Mongolian patients with advanced HCC had a favorable clinical response, including complete remissions and with overall survival over 90% after 1 year. So far a few patients with CCA were treated with V5, but it appeared that their response rate was somewhat inferior to patients with HCC since two (both with hemochromatosis) out six patients died within 6 months. In one patient who had improved clinically, the improvement was correlated with decrease in CA19-9 tumor marker, but no marker profile information is available in regard to other CCA patients. As V5 tablets are made from pooled blood of patients with HCC, in theory, they will be not very useful to patients with CCA. The goal of this project is to manufacture an immunotherapeutic formulation made from pooled heat- and chemically-inactivated blood from donors with CCA and initiate pilot open-label trial in 20 cholangiocarcinoma patients. This clinical trial will be conducted in collaboration with the National Cancer Center.
Tuberculosis (TB) is a common, infectious, bacterial disease that is spread when an infected person transmits their saliva through the air by coughing or sneezing. Despite the availability and effectiveness of affordable six-month treatments for tuberculosis (TB), the worldwide control of this disease is currently being impacted by the emergence of multidrug resistant TB (MDR-TB). MDR-TB refers to TB that is resistant to at least isoniazid and rifampicin. These are the two most powerful first-line drugs used to treat pulmonary TB. MDR-TB usually develops while a person is taking TB treatment due to either inappropriate treatment or failure of patients to comply with their treatment. This strain of drug-resistant bacteria can also be spread to other people through the air. With the incident rate of MDR-TB on the rise, there is a need to investigate optimal treatment regimens using effective drugs.
