Clinical Trials

  • Understanding and Diagnosing Allergic Disease in Twins

    The purpose of this study is to gain better understanding of how the immune system works in twins with and without allergic disease. Healthy volunteers are not specifically targeted. Healthy non-allergic study participants may be found through the course of evaluation for the presence of allergies.

  • Efficacy and Safety of Several Doses of Viaskin Peanut in Adults and Children With Peanut Allergy

    The objectives of this dose-finding study for the treatment of peanut allergy are:

    - To determine the efficacy of 3 doses of Viaskin Peanut (50 mcg ,100 mcg and 250 mcg peanut protein per patch) to significantly desensitize peanut-allergic subjects to peanut after 12 months of treatment.

    - To evaluate the safety of a long-term treatment with Viaskin Peanut.

  • Safety Study of Viaskin Peanut to Treat Peanut Allergy

    This study evaluates the safety of Viaskin Peanut 250 mcg in the treatment of peanut allergy in children from 4 to 11 years of age. Subjects will receive either Viaskin Peanut 250 mcg or a placebo for a period of 6 months, after which all subjects will be receiving the active treatment up to a period of 3 years under active treatment.

  • Safety and Efficacy of Diacerein 1% Ointment Topical Formulation Compared to Placebo for Subjects With Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex (EBS)

    Epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS) is a rare genetic skin disease characterized by fragility of the skin and mucous membranes resulting in painful blisters and erosions after minor trauma. The simplex form is classified by skin blister development in the basal epidermis. Diacerein 1% Ointment is a topical ointment that is being developed for the treatment of EBS. Diacerein in the topical formulation is hydrolyzed to rhein in the epidermis and dermis following administration. Diacerein and rhein have been shown to inhibit the in vitro and in vivo production and activity of interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and other pro-inflammatory cytokines.The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of Diacerein 1% Ointment to Control Ointment when applied once-daily for 8 weeks in subjects with EBS.

  • Biomarkers for Post-Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorders in Children

    Solid organ transplantation is an important therapeutic option for children with a variety of end stage diseases. However, the same immunosuppressive medications that are required to prevent the child's immune system from attacking and rejecting the transplanted organ can predispose these individuals to developing a very serious cancer that is linked to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).

  • Peanut Reactivity Reduced by Oral Tolerance in an Anti-IgE Clinical Trial

    The investigators will perform a double blind, placebo controlled clinical trial with Xolair (omalizumab) at four centers to safely and rapidly desensitize patients with severe peanut allergy. The investigators will determine if pretreatment with anti-IgE mAb (Xolair/omalizumab) can greatly reduce allergic reactions and allow for faster and safer desensitization.

  • Genetic and Environmental Factors in the Response to Influenza Vaccination

    The purpose of the study is to investigate and compare the immune responses to influenza vaccination in monozygotic (identical) and dizygotic (fraternal) twins to determine the roles of genetics and environment in the response to flu vaccination.
