Guillain-Barré Syndrome

Posted 11 months ago by Wales Gene Park

The study participants are patients which have been diagnosed with Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) and are planned to receive treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg). IVIg is a standard of care treatment for GBS patients. The patients in this study will be treated with the study medicine imlifidase on day 1, and with IVIg on days 3-7. The purpose of this study is to investigate the safety and effectiveness of imlifidase in patients diagnosed with GBS. This is an open-label, single arm, multi-centre, phase II study of imlifidase in combination with standard care IVIg in patients with GBS. The study will recruit up to 30 patients who are eligible for IVIg treatment based on current practice (i.e. GBS disability score >3 and within 10 days of onset of weakness). All patients will receive imlifidase (Day 1) prior to standard care IVIg. Data from each patient enrolled in this study will be compared...

International GBS Outcome Study (IGOS) is a study conducted by the members of the Inflammatory Neuropathy Consortium (INC) and Peripheral Nerve Society (PNS) on disease course and outcome in Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). The IGOS aims to identify clinical and biological determinants and predictors of disease course and outcome in individual patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome, as early as possible after onset of disease. GBS is a post-infectious immune-mediated polyradiculoneuropathy with a highly diverse clinical course and outcome despite partially effective forms of treatment(immunoglobulins and plasma exchange). Outcome in patients with GBS has not improved in the last two decades. At present about 10 to 20% of patients remain severely disabled and about 5% die. One explanation for this stagnation is the highly variable clinical course of GBS and the lack of knowledge about the factors that determine the clinical course in individual patients with GBS. GBS may consist of distinct pathogenic...
