Evaluation of Tofacitinib in Early Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis (dcSSc)

2017-09-06 22:23:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will evaluate tofacitinib treatment in subjects with diffuse cutaneous systemic scleroderma (dcSSc) in a placebo controlled trial. This phase I/II study is intended to provide safety, and tolerability data in participants with dcSSc when dosed to target exposures similar to that used in adult participants with RA.

Description

The purpose of this clinical research study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of treatment with tofacitinib (study drug) versus placebo (a substance with no active ingredients and therefore may have no treatment benefit) in people with diffuse cutaneous systemic scleroderma. Subjects will be randomized to tofacitinib vs. placebo in a 2:1 ratio at 5 mg twice a day for 24 weeks. Subjects will then be offered to participate in an open label phase during which they will receive tofacitinib 5 mg twice a day for 24 weeks.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A branch of dentistry dealing with diseases of the oral and paraoral structures and the oral management of systemic diseases. (Hall, What is Oral Medicine, Anyway? Clinical Update: National Naval Dental Center, March 1991, p7-8)

Diseases that exhibit signs and symptoms suggestive of a connective tissue disease that do not fulfill clinical or diagnostic criteria for any one defined disease but overlap with criteria of multiple such diseases. Commonly overlapping diseases include systemic autoimmune connective tissue diseases such as RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS; and SYSTEMIC SCLEROSIS.

A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)

Inflammation of the retinal vasculature with various causes including infectious disease; LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, SYSTEMIC; MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS; BEHCET SYNDROME; and CHORIORETINITIS.

Historically, a heterogeneous group of acute and chronic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, progressive systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis, etc. This classification was based on the notion that "collagen" was equivalent to "connective tissue", but with the present recognition of the different types of collagen and the aggregates derived from them as distinct entities, the term "collagen diseases" now pertains exclusively to those inherited conditions in which the primary defect is at the gene level and affects collagen biosynthesis, post-translational modification, or extracellular processing directly. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1494)
