Multiple Sclerosis and documentation of the drug utilization of Tecfidera (Dimethyl Fumarate)

The primary objective of the study is to determine the incidence, type, and pattern of serious adverse events (SAEs), including but not limited to infections (including opportunistic infections), hepatic events, malignancies, and renal events, and of adverse events (AEs) leading to treatment discontinuation in patients with MS treated with dimethyl fumarate (DMF).

ALS and the effects of Phenylbutyrate (PB) and Tauroursodeoxycholic Acid (TUDCA)

AMX0035 is a combination therapy designed to reduce neuronal death through blockade of key cellular death pathways originating in the mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum (ER). This clinical trial is designed to demonstrate that treatment is safe, tolerable, and able to slow decline in function as measured by the ALSFRS-R. The trial will also assess the effects of AMX0035 on muscle strength, vital capacity, and biomarkers of ALS including markers of neuronal death and neuroinflammation.

Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) and the effects of Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields) - METIS

The study is a prospective, randomized controlled phase III trial, to test the efficacy, safety and neurocognitive outcomes of advanced NSCLC patients, following stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for 1-10 brain metastases, treated with NovoTTF-100M compared to supportive treatment alone. The device is an experimental, portable, battery operated device for chronic administration of alternating electric fields (termed TTFields or TTF) to the region of the malignant tumor, by means of surface, insulated electrode arrays.

GlIadeL WAfer ImplaNT (VIGILANT) Registry

This is a prospective, observational registry in patients who have been prescribed Gliadel Wafer by the physician as part of usual care. Data will be collected on the safety and effectiveness of treatment with Gliadel Wafer perioperatively and ongoing during regular office visits up to 3-years. Patients enrolled in this registry will be asked to complete a questionnaire (Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Brain [FACT-Br]) about their well-being and clinicians will complete the Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) during office visits.

Ischemic Stroke and the Rate of Atrial Fibrillation Through 12 Months

The purpose of the Stroke AF study is to compare the incidence of atrial fibrillation (AF) through 12 months between continuous cardiac rhythm monitoring with the Reveal LINQ™ Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) (continuous monitoring arm) and standard of care (SoC) medical treatment (control arm) in subjects with a recent ischemic stroke of presumed known origin.

Embolic Stroke and the effects of dabigatran etexilate vs acetylsalicylic acid

This trial will enroll approximately 6,000 patients with recent embolic stroke of unknown source (ESUS). Patients will be randomized to dabigatran or acetylsalicyclic acid (ASA) (1:1 ratio) and have visits every three months. The study doctor may prescribe blinded concomitant ASA for pts with coronary artery disease but this is not mandatory. All Adverse Events (AEs), Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), outcome events will be recorded. The trial will conclude when the required number of stroke events are positively adjudicated which is estimated to take 3 years (including 2.5 years of enrollment).

Neuromuscular Blockade and the effects of Sugammadex

This is a randomized, active comparator-controlled, parallel-group, multi-site, double-blind safety trial of sugammadex (MK-8616) for the reversal of neuromuscular blockade (NMB) induced by rocuronium or vecuronium in adult ASA Physical Status Class 3 and 4 participants. The first primary objective of this study is to characterize the incidence of treatment emergent sinus bradycardia, treatment emergent sinus tachycardia, or other treatment emergent cardiac arrhythmias after administration of sugammadex.

Open Posterior Spinal Fusion Procedures and the effects of the SA4AG Vaccine

The purposes of the clinical trial are to determine whether the SA4Ag vaccine can prevent postoperative Staphylococcus aureus infections in patients who are undergoing elective spinal fusion surgery, and to evaluate the safety of SA4Ag in patients who are undergoing elective spinal surgery.

Addressing Real-world Anticoagulant Management Issues in Stroke (ARAMIS) Registry

The Addressing Real-world Anticoagulant Management Issues in Stroke (ARAMIS) registry is designed to provide important and timely insight into the management of acute stroke patients who are on novel oral anticoagulants in community practice.

Multiple Sclerosis and the effects of MD1003

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the superiority of MD1003 over placebo in the disability of patients suffering from progressive multiple sclerosis and especially those with gait impairment.

Multiple Sclerosis and the effects of Ocrelizumab

This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of ocrelizumab in participants with RRMS who have had a suboptimal response to an adequate course of DMT. Participants will receive ocrelizumab as an initial dose of two 300-milligrams (mg) intravenous (IV) infusions (600 mg total) separated by 14 days followed by one 600-mg IV infusion for a maximum of 4 doses (up to 96 weeks). Anticipated time on study treatment is 96 weeks.

Plegridy Real World Effectiveness and Safety Observational Program

The primary objectives of the study are to determine the incidence of serious adverse events (SAEs) in participants with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS) in routine clinical practice and to assess the overall long-term clinical effectiveness of Plegridy in participants with relapsing forms of MS in routine clinical practice.
