Doxycycline Host-directed Therapy to Improve Lung Function and Decrease Tissue Destruction in Pulmonary Tuberculosis

Start date: October 3, 2022
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Tuberculosis (TB) is a global pandemic that despite successful treatment and bacterial eradication can cause chronic ill health, also known as pulmonary impairment after tuberculosis (PIAT). A recent Phase 2b double-blind randomised-controlled clinical trial shows that adjunctive doxycycline therapy along with standard pulmonary TB (PTB) treatment is safe, accelerates resolution of inflammation, suppresses tissue damaging enzyme activity and decreases pulmonary cavity volume (1). The investigators aim to determine if adjunctive doxycycline can reduce PIAT in a fully powered Phase III trial of 8 weeks of adjunctive doxycycline alongside standard pulmonary TB treatment. The investigators hypothesize that doxycycline inhibits tissue destruction in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) and thereby leads to improved lung function after treatment. Specific aims 1. To assess for improvement in lung function as measured by forced expiratory volume (FEV1) predicted in PTB patients given doxycycline versus placebo. 2. To investigate whether doxycycline will hasten the resolution of pulmonary cavities measured by CT thorax, suppress inflammatory markers including matrix metalloproteinases and accelerate time to sputum culture conversion. 3. To assess the safety profile of doxycycline with concurrent standard anti-tuberculous treatment.

NCT ID: NCT05473195 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Rifampicin- and Isoniazid-Susceptible Pulmonary Tuberculosis (TB)

Start date: October 2022
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

To evaluate the 7-day early bactericidal activity (EBA), pharmacokinetics (PK), safety and tolerability of ethionamide (Eto) with or without BVL-GSK098 in participants with rifampicin- and isoniazid-susceptible pulmonary TB.

NCT ID: NCT05472051 Not yet recruiting - HIV Infections Clinical Trials

Health and Migration Trajectories of Housekeepers in Bamako

Start date: November 15, 2022
Study type: Observational

In Mali, migration from rural zones is a cultural phenomenon existing since 1970. During the dry season (9 months), an important number of young women leave their villages and migrate towards urban zones to seek for a job. In Bamako, the estimated number of housekeepers is 100 000 coming from rural regions and aged between 11 and 19 years. The current healthcare offer seems to be non-adapted to their particularities. This is a community-based research constructed on the basis of the activities of two NGOs in Mali: ADDAD (association for the defense of the rights of Housekeepers and domestic helpers ) and ARCAD Santé PLUS (the main NGO for healthcare access for HIV, hepatitis, and sexual health services). The research is conducted by the SanteRCom team in the UMR1252 SESSTIM research unit. The main objective of this observational study is to study the knowledge, beliefs, behaviors and practices in terms of health in general, and sexual health in particular; and to assess the acceptability of an offer of community-based prevention and health services provided by ARCAD Santé PLUS integrated in the activities of ADDAD. The integrating of community-based healthcare offer in a familiar and reassuring framework, such as that of ADDAD, should promote access to health services among housekeepers. The research is organized in 3 stages: 1. Preliminary qualitative survey based on focus group discussions. Allowing the identification of the housekeepers' needs in terms of prevention and healthcare services; and the behavioral particularities of the housekeepers community. It is planned to conduct 7 focus groups including between 42 and 56 housekeepers. 2. Communication and awareness campaigns in the regions of origin of housekeepers. Campaigns will be constructed on the basis of the results obtained from the preliminary qualitative survey. 3. Communication and awareness campaigns in Bamako; community-based activities for housekeepers will be organized 3 times per week during 5 months by the NGO ADDAD. Activities will include the community-based offer of prevention and healthcare services provided by the NGO ARCAD Santé PLUS, i.e. the novelty in the ADDAD's activities. A quantitative and qualitative surveys will be conducted over 5 months with participants recruited during the community-based activities. It is expected to enroll at least 1134 housekeepers, and to conduct a maximum of 25 individual interviews with selected housekeepers.

NCT ID: NCT05455112 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Tuberculosis, Pulmonary

Safety and Efficacy of RUTI® With the Standard of Treatment for Tuberculosis

Start date: August 2022
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This study is proposed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the RUTI vaccine in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis. Therapeutic vaccination of RUTI would stimulate the immune response not only against growing bacteria, but also against bacteria in a latent state that are less sensitive to antibiotic treatments. Therapeutic vaccination in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis could improve the speed of recovery of patients without inducing the appearance of drug resistance.

NCT ID: NCT05454345 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Tuberculosis, Pulmonary

Sitafloxacin-containing Regimens for Shortening Tuberculosis Treatment

Start date: October 1, 2022
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This study is a clinical trial conducted to determine whether the sitafloxacin-containing three-month regimens are as effective as the standard six-month regimen and the four-month rifapentine and moxifloxacin regimen (substitution of rifapentine for rifampin and moxifloxacin for ethambutol) for treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis. The standard six-month regimen is two months of isoniazid, rifampin, ethambutol, and pyrazinamide, followed by four months of isoniazid and rifampin. The four-month regimen consists of two months of isoniazid, rifapentine, moxifloxacin, and pyrazinamide, followed by two months of isoniazid rifapentine and moxifloxacin. The new three-month tuberculosis treatment regimens are six weeks of isoniazid, rifapentine, Sitafloxacin, and pyrazinamide, followed by seven weeks of isoniazid, rifapentine, and Sitafloxacin, or 13 weeks of isoniazid, rifapentine, Sitafloxacin, and pyrazinamide. The primary research question is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the 3 month Sitafloxacin-containing regimen, and to determine if it can shorten the treatment of drug-susceptible pulmonary tuberculosis while achieving non-inferiority in treatment success with the current 6 month and 4 month treatment regimens. Safety, side effects of Sitafloxacin for participants in the clinical trial are also assessed. Rates of cure, treatment success, recurrence, and cure (cure without recurrence) are determined for subgroup analysis in the standard six-month regimen group, the four-month regimen group, and two three-month regimen groups.
