Medical Scientists Are Investigating New Drugs To Help People With Chronic Kidney Disease With Anemia

by

Joseph

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a serious illness that affects the kidneys - organs which God created to filter waste products from the body. People who have CKD experience a gradual loss of kidney function which is often accompanied by a shortage of red blood cells.

Red blood cells transport oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, when these cells are lost, a person will become anemic. Oftentimes, physicians will prescribe iron pills or other medications that may help the red blood cells transport more oxygen, but they're not always successful.

Unfortunately there is no cure for CKD, the kidneys often continue to lose function over time.

But there is hope. Local doctors are investigating new medicines that may treat CKD anemia.

Perhaps you or someone you know is living with CKD. You could qualify to become a patient in a clinical trial which may offer new options for people with anemia.

As a CureClick Ambassador I want to share this information with my readers because it could be helpful for medically treating people who have CKD. Visit the research sponsor's website to learn more.

For those of you whom are not familiar with clinical trials, here's some information that you can use:

What Are Clinical Trials?


Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans.

All investigational devices and medicines must undergo several clinical trials, often times these clinical trials require thousands of people.

Why participate in a clinical trial?

People whom are eligible will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval.

People whom are eligible for clinical trials will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical staff at research facilities.

Clinical trials offer hope for many people and gives researchers a chance to find better treatment for others in the future.

New Drug Sought To Treat People With Moderate To Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis

by

Joseph

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the immune system attacks the lining of your joints. Unfortunately, some people with moderate to severe RA don't respond well to medications that are used to treat the disease, some patients even suffer unwanted side effects.

There is hope. Researchers are investigating a drug that may help people with moderate to severe RA. This study is for people whose RA has not responded well enough to previous treatment with methotrexate. The study will compare an investigational drug to another already-approved treatment for RA and placebo.

Medical Scientists Need Your Help To Find A Better Treatment For Axial Spondyloarthritis

by

Joseph

People with axial spondyloarthritis have chronic back pain which is usually treated with painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications. Although these provide some relief, the disease continues to progress in some patients while others notice their back pain has returned.

A new research study seeks to give a better understanding of how long-term treatment with the study drug compares to the standard of care treatments provided to these patients.

As a CureClick Ambassador I want to share this information with my readers because it could be helpful for medically treating people who have axSpA. Visit the research sponsor's website to learn more about it.

Current Meds Are Not Useful For All CLL Patients, New Treatments Sought

CureClick CLL image image

 

by

Joseph

People diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) often receive a mixture of two powerful medications - the drug obinutuzumab combined with the chemotherapy drug chlorambucil. Although this approved therapy has helped many CLL patients, the drugs are not effective for all patients.

TG Therapeutics, recognizing the need for new drugs to treat CLL, has started a clinical to determine if two investigational drugs will be helpful to CLL patients. 

Therefore, researchers are studying the combination of two investigational drugs, Ublituximab and TGR-1202, to learn if they may be effective as a new treatment for CLL.

As a CureClick Ambassador I want to share this information with my readers because it could be helpful for medically treating people who have the troubling condition.

According to the research sponsor "This study is evaluating whether the new combination results in better outcomes for patients with CLL, including living longer without their CLL getting worse, compared to the approved therapy."

In summary, this is a phase 3 trial meaning that the study drug has been taken by other participants under the supervision of medical professionals.

The research trial will consist of 450 people who must meet certain criteria.

Bone Strengthening Drugs Linked to Lower Breast Cancer Incidence | Bone Strengthening Drugs

Bone Strengthening Drugs Linked to Lower Breast Cancer Incidence | Bone Strengthening Drugs

Submitted by: Medico News

New research from the US has discovered that women who used bisphosphonates, commonly-prescribed bone-strengthening drugs, had significantly fewer invasive breast cancers than women who did not use them. “The idea that bisphosphonates could reduce breast cancer incidence is very exciting because there are about 30 million prescriptions for these agents written annually in the US targeting bone health, and more could easily be used to counteract both osteoporosis and breast cancer,” Chlebowski told the media. For the study, Chlebowski and colleagues re-analyzed data from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), a large observational study set up by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 1991 to examine the most common causes of death, disability and impaired quality of life in postmenopausal women. The WHI collected information on cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.

In the 150,000-plus cohort of generally healthy postmenopausal women, the researchers found 32 per cent fewer cases of invasive breast cancer among women who used bisphosphonates (mostly alendronate, marketed as Fosamax by Merck), compared to women who did not use such drugs.

What prompted the study were the findings of a report from a breast cancer trial that suggested bisphosphonate zoledronic acid given intravenously every 6 months resulted in fewer cancers in the other breast.

Chlebowski said that:

“It appeared to make bone less hospitable to breast cancer.”

In deciding how to devise the study, the researchers had to find a way to control for bone density, since that in itself is a risk factor for breast cancer. In other words they had to devise a way to control for potential differences between the women prescribed bisphosphonate and those not prescribed bisphosphonate, because those on the bone-strengthening drugs were on it because they had low bone mineral density, which is linked to lower breast cancer incidence.

They found that about 10,000 of the cohort had their bone mineral density analyzed as part of the WHI study, and for the others, including those prescribed bisphosphonates, the researchers used a 10-item hip fracture predictive score to measure bone density.

Thus they were able to correlate the results of bone mineral density tests in the 10,000 who had the tests with the predictive score in order to correct for any potential difference in bone density in women using bisphosphonates compared to those who did not use them.

Thus prepared, Chlebowski and colleagues then studied data on 2,216 women who were using bisphosphonates when they entered the WHI study.

The results showed that:

Only 64 of the bisphosphonate users developed breast cancer, and most of the cases, (50 of them), were estrogen-receptor positive.

Overall there was an average of 32 per cent fewer breast cancers among bisphosphonate users compared to non-users.

There were 30 per cent fewer estrogen-receptor positive cancers and 34 per cent fewer entry-receptor negative cancers among bisphosphonate users, although the latter finding was not statistically significant due to low numbers.

Speculating on what effect bisphosphonates might have to cause fewer breast cancers, Chlebowski said it could be because the drugs discourage blood vessel formation (which tumors rely on to grow), and help the immune system:

“Bisphosphonates reduce angiogenesis and stimulate immune cells responsible for tumor cell surveillance as potential mediators,” explained Chlebowski.

He said we need to study this link in more detail, because “while we currently have several options for reducing receptor positive breast cancers, none are available for receptor negative cancers”.

Other studies presented at the symposium pointed to a similar link between bisphosphonate use and lower breast cancer risk, and a number of breast cancer trials evaluating oral and intravenous uses of the drug are about to report randomized clinical trial evidence on it.
