Researchers are looking for a better way to treat women who have hot flashes after women have been through the menopause. Hot flashes are caused by the hormonal changes that happen when a woman's body has been through the menopause. Menopause is when women stop having a menstrual cycle, also called a period. During the menopause, the ovaries increasingly produce less sex hormones as a result of the natural ageing process and related hormonal adjustments. The decline in hormone production can lead to various symptoms which, in some cases, can have a very adverse effect on a menopausal woman's quality of life. The study treatment, elinzanetant, was developed to treat symptoms caused by hormonal changes. It works by blocking a protein called neurokinin from sending signals to other parts of the body, which is thought to play a role in starting hot flashes. There are treatments for hot flashes in women who have been through the menopause, but may cause medical problems for some people. In this study, the researchers will learn how well elinzanetant works compared to a placebo in women who have been through the menopause and have hot flashes. A placebo looks like a treatment but does not have any medicine in it. To compare these study treatments, the doctors will ask the participants to record information about the participants' hot flashes in an electronic diary. The researchers will study the number of hot flashes the participants have and how severe the hot flashes are. The researchers will look at the results from before treatment, after 4 weeks, and after 12 weeks of treatment. The participants in this study will take two capsules of either elinzanetant or the placebo once a day. The participants who take elinzanetant will take it for 26 weeks. The participants who take the placebo will take it for 12 weeks and then take elinzanetant for the next 14 weeks. During the study, the participants will visit the site approximately 9 times and perform 1 visit by phone. Each participant will be in the study for approximately 36 weeks. The treatment duration will be 26 weeks. During the study, the participants will: - record information about the participants' hot flashes in an electronic diary - answer questions about the participants' symptoms The doctors will: - check the participants' health - take blood samples - ask the participants questions about what medicines the participants are taking and if the participants are having adverse events An adverse event is any medical problem that a participant has during a study. Doctors keep track of all adverse events that happen in studies, even if doctors do not think the adverse events might be related to the study treatments.
Crohn's disease (CD) is a long-lasting condition causing inflammation that can affect any part of the gut. CD may cause tiredness, loose stools with or without bleeding, abdominal pain, weight loss, and fever. This study evaluates how safe and effective ABBV-154 is in participants treated for moderately to severely active CD. Adverse events and change in the disease activity will be assessed. ABBV-154 is an investigational drug being evaluated for the treatment of CD. In the induction period, there is a 1 in 5 chance that participants will be assigned to placebo. Depending on the dose received in the induction period, there is a 1 in 2 or 1 in 3 chance that participants will be assigned to placebo in the maintenance period. Around 265 participants 18-75 years of age with moderately to severely active CD will be enrolled in the study at approximately 165 sites worldwide. The study is compromised of a 12-week double-blind, placebo-controlled induction period, followed by either a 12-week double-blind re-induction period for non-responders or a 40-week double-blind placebo-controlled maintenance period for responders. In the maintenance period, responders will be randomized to receive subcutaneous placebo or ABBV-154 in 2 different doses every other week. Participants in the placebo group who are initial responders will receive ABBV-154 in the maintenance period. There may be higher treatment burden for participants in this trial compared to their standard of care due to study procedures. 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.
Regular exercise is effective in prevention & treatment of chronic diseases. Exercise can reduce late toxicity of chemotherapy, commonly found in cancer survivors, which is yet to be translated into clinical practice. Mechanisms of exercise benefits in oncologic patients are far from being elucidated, and include increase in muscle mass, reduction of fat mass, systemic inflammation and cardiometabolic risk. Synchronization of exercise adaptive response is, to an extent, mediated by bioactive molecules released from muscle, with anti-inflammatory & tumor-suppressing properties. Muscle satellite cells are a source of regeneration, muscle structural integrity & functional capacity. Phenotypes of muscle cells, such as secretory profile, lipid & glucose metabolism, mirror clinical phenotypes of the donor. Importantly, muscle cells' metabolism in vitro can be modulated by 8-12 week training in vivo. Epigenetic mechanisms regulating muscle & systemic metabolism in cancer survivors are not yet understood.
The project aims to explore the mechanisms by which lifelong exercise can promote healthy aging and slow down the negative impact of aging on the muscular system, immunity and the circadian system. The main goal of the project is to investigate the effect of lifelong endurance exercise on physical fitness, body composition, bone density and selected hormonal, biochemical, histological and molecular indicators of metabolic health and circadian clock function based on blood, immune cell and skeletal muscle tissue analyses in volunteers differentiated by age and weekly volume of physical activity. It is hypothesized that lifelong endurance exercise may have beneficial effects on the circadian system stability and many, but not all health outcomes. Osteopenia/osteoporosis and low-grade malnutrition may be more prevalent in the group of endurance-trained senior runners. In order to achieve the above research aims, sixty male subjects in total will be recruited according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. Four groups of subjects will differ according to their age and physical activity levels: - a group of endurance-trained seniors (age range 65 - 75 year old, n=15) ● a group of sedentary seniors (age range 65 - 75 year old, n=15) - a group of well endurance-trained young men (age range 20 - 30 year old, n=15) ● a group of sedentary young men (age range 20 - 30 year old, n=15). Subjects must meet the following inclusion criteria: 1. for athletes' groups: defined as more than 150 minutes of running activity per week; for young athletes at least 3 years and for master athletes at least 15 years history of running. 2. for groups less active than recommended: no history of regular physical activity training and no more practice than 150 minutes of moderate or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity per week. The standard inclusion criterion for every group will be body mass index (range 18.5-30 kg/m2). No experimental study has been published on the potential of life-long exercise to attenuate the aging-induced disorganization of the circadian system and thus to promote healthy aging. In this aspect, the proposed study is original and up-to-date. Moreover, also other aspects of the study, e.g. exercise and inflammaging or the risks (besides the benefits) of the long-life endurance training on bone tissue etc. have been studied only scarcely. Therefore, more scientific information is needed before it can be safely prescribed to the aging population
This study is investigating how Mim8 works compared to other medicines in people with haemophilia A, who either have inhibitors or do not have inhibitors. Mim8 is a new medicine that will be used for prevention of bleeding episodes. Mim8 works by replacing the function of the missing clotting factor VIII (FVIII). When and how often participants will receive Mim8 is dependent on their previous treatment - but is otherwise decided by chance. The study will last for 72-124 weeks (17-29 months) depending on how long participants will be followed before it is decided when they start receiving Mim8 - the period before this is decided is called the 'run-in'. Participants will have 13-17 clinic visits. Mim8 will be injected into a skinfold on the stomach with a thin needle either once a week or once a month.
