Parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) is part of the body's autonomic nervous system(PNS) protects body against inflammation. Study shows that reduced PNS function activity is associated with persistent inflammation. Preliminary data from the studies shows, that post-COVID-19 POTS patients have reduced parasympathetic (PNS) function. Given that the PNS protects against inflammation, this clinical trial aims to prove that post-COVID-19 POTS is caused by reduced PNS activity, which in turn, contributes to persistent inflammation, orthostatic intolerance, and OI symptoms. The study will evaluate immune cell activation in post-COVID-19 POTS and patients with history of COVID-19 infection without sequelae and correlate this with the degree of decreased PNS activity.

COVID-19 can trigger a dysregulated immune response, and previous studies have shown that immune modulation can improve outcomes in hospitalized patients. This trial is designed to determine whether intensification of immune modulation early in the course of the disease (while patients are on low flow oxygen) with abatacept (active arm) combined with standard of care (SOC) improves recovery as compared with placebo + SOC (placebo arm). For both groups, intensification of immunomodulation will be provided as part of SOC in case of signs of disease progression (patient requires high flow nasal oxygen (HFNO) or more support) and/or if the patient has rapidly increasing oxygen requirement.

This study is looking at how Mim8 works in people with haemophilia A, who either have inhibitors or do not have inhibitors. Mim8 is a new medicine that will be used to avoid bleeding episodes. Mim8 works by replacing the function of the missing clotting factor VIII (FVIII). When and how often the participants will receive Mim8 in this study depends on the treatment participant receives in the current Mim8 study participant is taking part in. The study will last for up to 5.5 years. The duration of the study depends on when the participant enrolled in this study. The study will end if Mim8 is approved and marketed in participant's country during the study, or the study will end in 2028, whichever comes first. Mim8 will be injected under the skin with a thin needle either once a week, once every two weeks or once a month. Participants will get up to 262 injections; the number of injections depends on how often participants will get injections. While taking part in this study, there are some restrictions about what medicine participants can use. The study doctor will tell the participants more about this. In case the participants experience bleeds, these can be treated with additional haemostatic medicine as agreed with the study doctor. Female participants cannot take part if they are pregnant, breast-feeding or plan to get pregnant during the study period.

In parallel with the growth of American Thrombosis and Hemostasis Network's (ATHN) clinical studies, the number of new therapies for all congenital and acquired hematologic conditions, not just those for bleeding and clotting disorders, is increasing significantly. Some of the recently FDA-approved therapies for congenital and acquired hematologic conditions have yet to demonstrate long-term safety and effectiveness beyond the pivotal trials that led to their approval. In addition, results from well-controlled, pivotal studies often cannot be replicated once a therapy has been approved for general use.(1,2,3,4) In 2019 alone, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued approvals for twenty-four new therapies for congenital and acquired hematologic conditions.(5) In addition, almost 10,000 new studies for hematologic diseases are currently registered on www.clinicaltrials.gov.(6) With this increase in potential new therapies on the horizon, it is imperative that clinicians and clinical researchers in the field of non-neoplastic hematology have a uniform, secure, unbiased, and enduring method to collect long-term safety and efficacy data. ATHN Transcends is a cohort study to determine the safety, effectiveness, and practice of therapies used in the treatment of participants with congenital or acquired non-neoplastic blood disorders and connective tissue disorders with bleeding tendency. The study consists of 7 cohorts with additional study "arms" and "modules" branching off from the cohorts. The overarching objective of this longitudinal, observational study is to characterize the safety, effectiveness and practice of treatments for all people with congenital and acquired hematologic disorders in the US. As emphasized in a recently published review, accurate, uniform and quality national data collection is critical in clinical research, particularly for longitudinal cohort studies covering a lifetime of biologic risk.(7)

This research will establish a mg/kg dose for a future RCT to determine the efficacy of high-dose oral montelukast for children with moderate and severe acute asthma exacerbations. Aim: Perform an adaptive, double-masked randomized controlled trial (RCT) of high-dose oral montelukast, with escalating mg/kg dose levels determined by PK-guided dose modeling, added to standard treatment versus standard treatment alone, in children with exacerbations that are moderate or severe after initial treatment with inhaled albuterol. Hypothesis 1: High-dose oral montelukast achieves peak plasma concentration (Cmax) >1,700 ng/ml in >86% of at least one of three sequential participant groups with escalating weight-based (milligram/kilogram or mg/kg) doses between groups. Hypothesis 2: Participants randomized to high-dose oral montelukast have a 2 point or greater improvement of the validated Acute Asthma Intensity Research Score (AAIRS) at 4 hours post-treatment in comparison with control group participants. Hypothesis 3: Among montelukast recipients, Cmax correlates with change of the AAIRS at 4 hours, after adjustment for pre-treatment exacerbation severity and systemic leukotriene stress measured using urinary leukotriene E4 (LTE4).

This phase II trial compares the effect of irinotecan versus oxaliplatin after long-course chemoradiation in patients with stage II-III rectal cancer. Combination chemotherapy drugs, such as FOLFIRINOX (fluorouracil, irinotecan, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin), FOLFOX (leucovorin, fluorouracil, oxaliplatin, and irinotecan ), and CAPOX (capecitabin and oxaliplatin) work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. FOLFOX or CAPOX are used after chemoradiation as usual treatment for rectal cancer. Giving FOLFIRINOX after chemoradiation may increase the response rate and lead to higher rates of clinical complete response (with a chance of avoiding surgery) compared to FOLFOX or CAPOX after chemoradiation in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer.
