Studies of the Natural History, Pathogenesis, and Outcome of Idiopathic Systemic Vasculitis

Summary: Background:~- Vasculitis is a group of diseases that inflame and damage blood vessels and tissue. It can cause many medical problems. Few tests can diagnose the disease, and none can reliably predict a relapse. Researchers want to study people s genes and follow people over time to see how the disease affects them.~Objective:~- To learn the signs, symptoms, imaging tests, genetic markers, and bloo...

A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Dose-Ranging Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of ABBV-154 in Subjects With Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) Dependent on Glucocorticoid Treatment

Summary: Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) is an inflammatory disease causing shoulder, hip, and neck pain and stiffness, in adults aged 50 years or older. This study evaluates how safe and effective ABBV-154 is in participants with glucocorticoid-dependent PMR. Adverse events and change in disease activity will be assessed.~ABBV-154 is an investigational drug being evaluated for the treatment of PMR. Participa...

Predictive Factors for Treatment Response in Patients With Newly-diagnosed Polymyalgia Rheumatica and Giant Cell Arteritis

Summary: This prospective study is to explore different predictive factors for response to steroid treatment in patients with PMR and/or GCA. It evaluates the association of endogenous GC suppression (plasma and urinary cortisol and cortisone) to the responsiveness of PMR/GCA to GCs.

A Randomized Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled Trial of Abatacept (CTLA4-Ig) in Giant Cell Arteritis (ABAGART)

Summary: This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial will seek to determine the efficacy of abatacept in GCA. To examine this objective, 62 eligible patients who have newly diagnosed or relapsing GCA within 8 weeks prior to screening will be randomized at a 1:1 ratio to receive subcutaneous abatacept 125mg/week or placebo. Patients who achieve remission will remain on their blinded assignment f...

RESCUE - Effect of Supplemental Hydrocortisone During Stress in Prednisolone-induced Adrenal Insufficiency; A Multicentre, Randomised, Double Blinded, Placebo-controlled Clinical Trial on Health-related Quality of Life in Patients With Polymyalgia Rheumatica/Giant Cell Arteritis Receiving Ongoing Low-dose Prednisolone Treatment.

Summary: In this double-blinded randomised placebo-controlled clinical trial, the aim is to determine the effect of supplemental hydrocortisone compared with placebo during mild to moderate physical or mental stress on health related quality of life in patients with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR)/giant cell arteritis (GCA) on ongoing low-dose prednisolone diagnosed with glucocorticoid-induced adrenal insuffi...

UK GCA Consortium: Clinical and Immunogenetic Characterization of Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA) and Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR)

Summary: A multi-centre observational study recruiting prospective and retrospective cohorts of patients with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) and giant cell arteritis (GCA). The primary aim is to find genetic determinants of GCA and PMR susceptibility, in order to yield novel insights into disease pathogenesis. A subset of the retrospective cohort is also enrolled in a post-marketing surveillance registry of ...

VCRC Genetic Repository One-Time DNA Protocol

Summary: The purpose of this study is to identify genes that increase the risk of developing vasculitis, a group of severe diseases that feature inflammation of blood vessels. Results of these studies will provide vasculitis researchers with insight into the causes of these diseases and generate new ideas for diagnostic tests and therapies, and will be of great interest to the larger communities of researc...

PRediction Of DIverse Glucocorticoids toxIcity OUtcomeS

Summary: To date, there is no available tool that allows, at individual level, determination of the probability to develop clinically relevant complications of prolonged glucocorticoid therapy. In patients with inflammatory rheumatic disorders requiring prolonged glucocorticoid therapy, such tool could be useful to adapt first-line treatment decisions (in daily practice and in future clinical trials). The ...

Observational Retrospective Studies on Single Nucleotide Variants (SNPs) on the Interleukin-6 Receptor (IL6R) and Their Influence on the Response to Treatment and Safety in Patients With Specific Rheumatic Diseases

Summary: Tocilizumab and Sarilumab are first-line biological disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (bDMARD) which inhibits Interleukin 6 (IL-6) pathway through blockade of its receptor on the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases as Giant Cell Arteritis, Still's disease and Idiopathic Juvenile Arthritis. At present, there is a lack of evidence to recommend the treatment of one bDMA...

Evaluating the Use of Gallium-68 HA-DOTATATE Positron Emission Tomography/Computerized Tomography (PET/CT) in Patients With Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA.)

Summary: The aim of this study is to compare the use of FDG PET/CT to Ga-68 HA-DOTATATE (abbreviated DOTATATE) PET/CT in patients with active giant cell arteritis (GCA) started on prednisone to understand if DOTATATE can identify more areas of active blood vessel inflammation than FDG.

Polymyalgia Rheumatica Associated to Primary Sjogren Syndrome : A French Multicentric Retrospective Study (PASS)

Summary: To determine the phenotype of patients having PMR symptoms and primary Sjogren syndrome (pSS), we used a French national call to identify patients combining both diseases and collected retrospective clinical and biological data.

Open Label Phase II Randomized Non-comparative Study of SC Tocilizumab Associated With IV Pulse Steroid Versus IV Pulse Steroid Alone for the Treatment of Acute Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy Associated With Giant Cell Arteritis

Summary: AION is the main cause of blindness in patients with GCA. High dose steroid is the reference treatment of this condition, but medical unmet need remains. Subcutaneous tocilizumab, a targeted biotherapy, recently received marketing authorization for the treatment of GCA, but only demonstrated at yet that it can allow steroid dose sparing. The aim of this study is to assess the benefit of tocilizuma...
