Analysis of the Distribution of Regulatory B Cells in Blood of Multiple Sclerosis Patients
New therapeutic approaches of MS are emerging, targeting different actors of the immune system. Some of them target a specific population of white blood cells: B lymphocytes composed of different subpopulations. The subsets of B cells express different functional properties that control the immune response, but these regulation mechanisms have yet to be clearly described. Some subpopulations could amplify inflammation through IL-6 production for example, whereas some ones contribute to its regulation through the production of IL-10. Using samples collected in a large cohort of individuals with risk of MS and treatment-naive patients...
An Individualized-health eLibrary App for People With Multiple Sclerosis
The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness after using a new individualized-health e-library app named SavvyHealth among people with multiple sclerosis.
An Observational Study on Teriflunomide-exposed Pregnancies
Primary Objective: To evaluate any potential increase in the risk of major birth defects, in the first year of life, in teriflunomide-exposed pregnancies. Secondary Objective: To evaluate the potential effect of teriflunomide-exposure on other adverse pregnancy outcomes including any potential pattern of minor birth defects, spontaneous abortion, stillbirth, preterm delivery, small for gestational age at birth and at 1 year follow-up.
An Observational Study to Investigate the Role of B Cells in Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) typically afflict young people in their twenties, when they start a career and establish a family. The disease thus imposes a severe impact on quality of life and heavy economic burdens on society. Critical barriers to progress in the field are the lack of knowledge of relevant immune cell subsets driving the pathology and the targets of the immune response within the central nervous system. In this project, we will test the hypothesis that a subgroup of MS patients is defined by a genetically determined B cell response against specific antigenic epitopes. The hypothesis is based on our recent, pioneering...
An Open-label Study Evaluating Ofatumumab Treatment Effectiveness and PROs in Subjects With RMS Transitioning From Dimethyl Fumarate or Fingolimod to Ofatumumab
The open label study to evaluate effectiveness of treatment with ofatumumab in patients transitioning from commonly used oral MS therapies - fingolimod or dimethyl fumarate, due to breakthrough disease.
A Open-label Study to Assess Response to COVID-19 Vaccine in Multiple Sclerosis Participants Treated With Ofatumumab
This study will evaluate if participants treated with ofatumumab 20 mg subcutaneous (s.c.) administered once monthly can develop an adequate immune response to the COVID-19 mRNA vaccine compared to participants on an interferon or glatiramer acetate.
A Personalised Radiosurgery Procedure for People With Trigeminal Neuralgia to Improve Pain, Quality of Life and Reduce Complications
The aim of this study is to evaluate prospectively the feasibility and impact of personalised gamma knife radiosurgery treatment protocol versus current standard protocol for people with idiopathic or Multiple Sclerosis-related Trigeminal Neurolgia (MS related TN) on effectiveness in pain relief, the development of morbidity and quality of life. Patients with TN or MS-related TN are referred to the National Centre for Stereotactic Radiosurgery in Sheffield for clinical consultation, and will undergo gamma knife radiosurgery (GNRS) for treating trigeminal neuralgia if eligible. The GKRS treatment is provided as a standard National...
A Phase 1 Single and Multiple Dose Study to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Immunogenicity of HuL001 in Healthy Volunteers and Multiple Sclerosis Subjects
This is a first-in-human, two-part, Phase 1 study that will characterize the safety, tolerability, PK, and immunogenicity of HuL001.
A Phase 2 Study of Orelabrutinib in Patients With Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis
This is a randomized, double-Blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 Study of Orelabrutinib in Patients with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis.
A Phase I Double Blind Study of Metformin Acting on Endogenous Neural Progenitor Cells in Children With Multiple Sclerosis
A randomized multiple baseline feasibility trial where participants will start taking metformin at one of 3 randomly determined points (3-months, 6-months or 9 months) during the 12-month trial. All subjects will be on a daily dose of metformin for a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 9 months.
