  • A Study to Examine the Safety, Tolerability and Effects on Abnormal Bone Formation of REGN2477 in Patients With Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva Rochester, MN

    This is a two period study design consisting of a 6-month, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled treatment (period 1) followed by a 6-month, open-label treatment (period 2). Primary safety objective of the study is to assess the safety and tolerability of REGN2477 in male and female patients with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). Primary efficacy objective of the study is to assess the effect of REGN2477 versus placebo on the change from baseline in heterotopic ossification (HO) in patients with FOP, as determined by 18-NaF uptake in HO lesions by positron emission tomography (PET) and in total volume of HO lesions by computed ...

  • A Study of Environmental Risk Factors for the Anti-Synthetase Syndrome Rochester, MN

    Like other complex diseases, autoimmune diseases are the result of numerous causes, including genetic and environmental factors. Some researchers believe that people who are susceptible to autoimmune disorders develop them when the body reacts to environmental or other factors by creating white blood cells that attack the body s own tissues, which then progresses to autoimmune diseases. These immune-triggered disorders can overlap with one another to some extent, but most autoimmune diseases have certain distinct triggers. - The autoimmune disorder myositis weakens the muscles and may cause other health problems. Environmental exposures associated with myositis include ultraviolet radiation, stressful life ...
