The main objective of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of orally administered BI 705564 in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus
The overall objective of this project is to study the influence of modern anti-inflammatory treatments in established inflammatory rheumatic diseases (IRD) on antibody response elicited by pneumococcal vaccination using 13-valent conjugate vaccine in combined schedules with 23-valent polysaccharide vaccine. In addition, the aim is to study the clinical aspects of vaccination regarding: tolerability in immunosuppressed patients with IRD, impact on existing rheumatic disease, possible association with onset of new autoimmune diseases, long-term immunity following pneumococcal vaccination and efficacy in preventing invasive pneumococcal disease. Results from this study are expected to bridge the existing knowledge gap and contribute to body of evidence needed for recommendations and implementation of vaccination program in IRD patients.
This study is designed to explore the expression of cell-surface markers in the following seven disease areas: (a) systemic lupus erythematosus, (b) Sjogren's syndrome, (c) multiple sclerosis, (d) systemic sclerosis, (e) Crohn's disease, (f) ulcerative colitis and (g) inflammatory myositis.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is systemic autoimmune disease characterized by various immunological abnormalities, including dysregulated activation of both T and B lymphocytes with overt production of autoreactive antibodies.The chemokine CXC ligand 13 protein (CXCL13), also known as B cell-attracting chemokine-1 (BAC-1) or B lymphocyte chemoattractant (BLC), CXCL13 serum levels were correlated with disease activity using the SLE Disease Activity Index (SLEDAI) and to lupus nephritis
Preeclampsia is a serious maternal condition affecting up to 5% of pregnancies from the general population and up to 30% of lupus pregnancies. Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid- ASA) has been shown to reduce the risk of preeclampsia, by half, in women at high risk. Therefore, it is recommended that health professionals initiate aspirin early during pregnancy in women with lupus. Despite this recommendation, there are currently no studies of aspirin in women with lupus for this indication. This is a critical knowledge gap as aspirin could potentially have a large benefit in this high-risk population. The investigator will perform a RCT to evaluate the effect of a specifically designed patient educational tool on preeclampsia knowledge and ASA adherence in pregnant women with SLE. The research efforts will improve reproductive health of SLE women and the outcomes of offsprings.
In follow-up of the previous SynBioSe Study the present study is a randomized controlled trial to assess the potential of the new therapeutic approach in lupus nephritis patients. The hypothesis is that by starting therapy with belimumab (anti-BAFF), migration of tissue residing B-cells is obtained before treatment with rituximab (anti-CD20) and aims to assess the possible better reduction and seroconversion of pathogenic autoantibodies compared to the control group.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a short interactive video game device is associated with performance on standard measures of attention and problem solving in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE). The study is also designed to see if playing the video game for four weeks improves attention and problem solving in patients with SLE.
The goal is to evaluate adverse pregnancy outcomes (APO), their predictors and potential preventive therapies, such as aspirin (ASA). The investigator aims to improve the outcomes for women with SLE and offsprings. By quantifying the risk of APO conferred by clinical risk factors that can be assessed early in pregnancy (i.e. first trimester), health professionals could be better equipped to estimate the individual risk of SLE pregnancies and the need for heightened surveillance and guide counseling for prophylactic measures, including ASA. Moreover findings from this study could eventually lead to the choice and weighting of first trimester clinical factors in future clinical prediction models for APO in SLE. The investigator's research efforts will improve reproductive health of SLE women, "mitigating the damage, functional loss, and disability that result from a chronic inflammatory disorder", such as SLE.
The purpose of the study is to assess the efficacy and safety of 4 doses of cenerimod versus placebo in adult subjects with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
This is a pilot study to assess the feasibility of a multi-level intervention to improve medication adherence in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus
