Efficacy and Safety of Belimumab in Subjects With Primary Sjögren's Syndrome

2014-07-23 21:08:28 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by an increase in BAFF (BLyS) levels and a resulting B cell hyperactivity. B cells are involved in the pathogenesis of SS in both systemic and glandular features, and B cell downregulation may lead to a decrease of disease activity. Moreover, pathogenesis of SS is closed to that of Systemic lupus erythematosus, where Belimumab has been proven to be effective.

This phase II open-label study has 2 mains objectives:

- To evaluate the proof of concept of efficacy of belimumab in subjects with SS

- To evaluate the safety and tolerability of belimumab in subjects with SS Belimumab will be administered (10mg/kg on D0 D14 D28 and every 28 days for 24 weeks, with extension to 48 weeks if responders) to all patients

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Condition with a variable constellation of phenotypes due to deletion polymorphisms at chromosome location 22q11. It encompasses several syndromes with overlapping abnormalities including the DIGEORGE SYNDROME, VELOCARDIOFACIAL SYNDROME, and CONOTRUNCAL AMOMALY FACE SYNDROME. In addition, variable developmental problems and schizoid features are also associated with this syndrome. (From BMC Med Genet. 2009 Feb 25;10:16) Not all deletions at 22q11 result in the 22q11deletion syndrome.

Rare congenital disorder with multiple anomalies including: characteristic dysmorphic craniofacial features, musculoskeletal abnormalities, neurocognitive delay, and high prevalence of cancer. Germline mutations in H-Ras protein can cause Costello syndrome. Costello syndrome shows early phenotypic overlap with other disorders that involve MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM (e.g., NOONAN SYNDROME and cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome).

An autosomal dominant aneurysm with multisystem abnormalities caused by increased TGF-BETA signaling due to mutations in type I or II of TGF-BETA RECEPTOR. Additional craniofacial features include CLEFT PALATE; CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS; HYPERTELORISM; or bifid uvula. Phenotypes closely resemble MARFAN SYNDROME; Marfanoid craniosynostosis syndrome (Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome); and EHLERS-DANLOS SYNDROME.

Birth defect that results in a partial or complete absence of the CORPUS CALLOSUM. It may be isolated or a part of a syndrome (e.g., AICARDI'S SYNDROME; ACROCALLOSAL SYNDROME; ANDERMANN SYNDROME; and HOLOPROSENCEPHALY). Clinical manifestations include neuromotor skill impairment and INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY of variable severity.

A syndrome of DYSPHAGIA with IRON-DEFICIENCY ANEMIA that is due to congenital anomalies in the ESOPHAGUS (such as cervical esophageal webs). It is known as Patterson-Kelly syndrome in the United Kingdom.
