New Study for People with Severe Asthma and on Oral CorticosteroidsOne of the few treatment options for severe asthma patients who are uncontrolled despite standard treatment is the addition of oral corticosteroids. However, regular intake of these oral corticosteroids can decrease the quality of life for such patients. The purpose of this research study is to see whether the investigational drug can reduce the use of oral corticosteroids in patients with severe asthma.
More about the study:
- The study drug is Benralizumab
- There will be 210 participants in this trial
- be between 18 – 75 years old
- have asthma diagnosed by a doctor at least a year ago
- have been treated with inhaled corticosteroids + LABA for minimum 12 months since today + oral corticosteroids for at least 6 months since today
- have had at least 1 exacerbation (worsening of your asthma that requires medical intervention, emergency room visit, an inpatient hospitalization or a change in medications) in the past year
- have severe lung disease other than asthma
- have HIV, Hepatitis B or C
If you’re not familiar with clinical trials, here are some FAQs:
What are clinical trials?Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans. All new investigational medications and devices must undergo several clinical trials, often involving thousands of people.
Why participate in a clinical trial?You will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval. You will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical trial staff at research facilities. Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Clinical Trial
The currently recruiting trial listed on CureClick for rheumatoid arthritis is a clinical study for a biosimilar medication. We have received several messages about this trial so we wanted to post some additional information:
According to the FDA, “Biosimilars are a type of biological product that are licensed (approved) by FDA because they are highly similar to an already FDA-approved biological product, known as the biological reference product (reference product), and have been shown to have no clinically meaningful differences from the reference product.”
For this trial, one group will be given the currently approved and available medication Rituxan® (rituximab) and the other will be on a biosimilar version of rituxumab. Neither group will receive a placebo. The goal of the trial is to see if the study drug is as safe and effective in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and attempt to show it has no clinically meaningful difference to the reference product (Rituxan®).
MORE ABOUT THE STUDY FROM THE SPONSOR:
The purpose of this study is to compare the proposed biosimilar study drug rituximab (GP2013) against a standard approved treatment rituximab (Rituxan®) to see if the study drug is as safe and effective in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
- The study drug (GP2013 and Rituximab) is administered by IV Injection (IV).
- At least 174 people have already taken this drug in clinical trials
- All study related medications, analysis, hospital visits and procedures are free
- be at least 18 years old
- have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis for at least 6 months
- have had inadequate response or intolerance to DMARDs (disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs) and 1 – 3 anti-TNF (tumor necrosis factor) therapies
- have received methotrexate for at least 4 months with 25 mg/week as the maximal dose
Participants must not:
- have significant liver disease, or congestive heart failure
- be taking a high potency of opioid analgesics (e.g. methadone, hydromorphone, morphine)
