AERIFY-3 Trial Summary

This trialtests how a new drug, Itepekimab, affects airway inflammation in smokers with COPD. Participants will stay on their current COPD treatments while being monitored over 36 weeks.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for former and current smokers aged 40-70 with COPD, diagnosed per GOLD standards. They must have a BMI ≥18 kg/m2, be vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2, not pregnant or breastfeeding (if female), and agree to contraception if of childbearing potential. Participants should have used standard COPD treatments for at least 3 months and had an exacerbation treated with steroids in the past 5 years.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests Itepekimab's effect on airway inflammation in COPD patients over a total of approximately 36 weeks: a four-week screening period, twelve-week treatment period, followed by twenty weeks of follow-up while maintaining their usual COPD medications.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While specific side effects are not listed here, as an anti-IL-33 monoclonal antibody like Itepekimab can cause immune-related reactions such as infusion responses or allergic reactions; it may also affect how the body responds to infections.

Frequently Asked Questions

These questions and answers are submitted by anonymous patients, and have not been verified by our internal team.

Does this research include participants over the age of 40?

"According to the outlined parameters of this trial, individuals aged 40 and above but below 70 are eligible for enrollment."

Answered by AI

Are there any vacancies remaining for participants in this clinical trial?

"Indeed, the information on clinicaltrials.gov states that recruitment for this trial is in progress. It was posted initially on May 19th 2022 and most recently updated January 17th 2023. The study requires 60 patients to be enrolled from two sites."

Answered by AI

What impact has Itepekimab been found to have on patients' well-being?

"Our risk assessment of itepekimab's safety is moderate, rating a 2 out of 3. This drug has passed through stage two clinical trials, demonstrating some proof-of-concept regarding its security; however, there is no definitive evidence on the efficacy yet."

Answered by AI

Who would be an ideal candidate for this medical experiment?

"This medical trial is seeking 60 participants from the age range of 40-70 with a confirmed diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). To be eligible for enrolment, volunteers must have smoked for at least 10 pack-years and their COPD symptoms should have been present in the year preceding screening. Additionally, they must not currently be smoking or planning to start any smoking cessation interventions before or during the screening period. Furthermore, those partaking must meet other criteria such as having experienced moderate exacerbations requiring systemic corticosteroids/antibiotics and receiving stable doses of controller therapy among others. Finally, it is obligatory that"

What goals are you attempting to accomplish with this research?

"This trial, which will be tracked from the outset to Week 12, has one primary goal: a logarithmic shift in gene expression as observed through endobronchial biopsies. Secondary objectives include an alteration of interleukin-33 affected eosinophil and mast cell derived NESs when tested on former smokers with COPD; likewise, changes must also be monitored in preclinical mouse models-derived neutrophilic extracellular traps (NESs) amongst this cohort."

Answered by AI

How many individuals are taking part in the clinical trial?

"Affirmative, the clinical trial is presently open for enrollment. As per the info posted on clinicaltrials.gov, this study was first available on May 19th 2022 and last edited on January 17th 2023. The researchers need 60 participants from two locations."
