Brief Summary J3Z-MC-OJAB is an open-label, Phase 1/2, multicenter study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of single-dose LY3884961 (formerly PR001) in infants diagnosed with Type 2 Gaucher disease (GD2). For each patient, the study will be approximately 5 years in duration. During the first 12 months after dosing, patients will be evaluated for the effects of LY3884961 on safety, tolerability, immunogenicity, biomarkers, and efficacy. Patients will be followed up for an additional 4 years to monitor safety and changes on selected biomarkers and clinical outcomes.

Brief Summary Polymyositis (PM), dermatomyositis (DM) and inclusion body myositis (IBM)belong to a group of inflammatory muscle disorders, of unknown cause, that are characterised by skeletal muscle inflammation and progressive muscular weakness, which can be debilitating and chronic in nature (occasionally fatal). The current treatment options for these conditions are steroids and various other immunosuppressive drugs. However, these are usually only partially effective at reducing symptoms, and their toxic side effects also limit their usefulness. In order to develop more specific treatments for myositis in the future (and therefore more effective), it is important to understand the exact mechanisms that cause the disease in the first instance. In other similar inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus (SLE), it is known that changes to the Human Leukocyte Antigen(HLA), as well as certain inflammatory cytokines, are involved in both the development and expression of the disease. As many...

CHEMORES: A study to understand more about why chemotherapy to treat lung cancer can stop working This study will look for changes in blood and tissue samples before and after treatment for lung cancer, to try to find out how cancer cells stop themselves being harmed by treatment. Doctors may use surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy or another type of drug that targets lung cancer to treat this disease. Your treatment will depend on your type and stage of lung cancer. If you have non small cell lung cancer, you may have a combination of these. If you have small cell lung cancer, you would usually have chemotherapy. We know from research that cancer cells can become 'resistant’ to treatment. In lung cancer for example, cancer cells can sometimes reduce the concentration of the drug inside them, and repair DNA damage. And, develop changes in the genes in cancer cells that prevent the treatment from working. Understanding why resistance happens will help develop improved...

Brief Summary Fabry disease is a rare metabolic condition characterised by the widespread deposition of sphingolipids in multiple organ systems. Cardiac involvement is common, it occurs in fifty percent of patients and it is the leading cause of death. Despite this, heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular system) manifestations of Fabry disease remain poorly characterised, and it remains unclear which patients benefit from therapy, or when therapy should be initiated. Migalastat is increasingly used to treat fabry disease however the impact of Migalastat on the cardiovascular system is poorly understood. Detailed assessment of the impact of Migalastat on heart and blood vessel structure and function is urgently needed. This observational study will use state of the art, non-invasive investigations to provide greater understanding of the cardiovascular manifestations of Fabry disease and the effects of Migalastat. It will provide insight into which patients respond more effectively to Migalastat, which in turn will...
