There are several clinical trials in process right now that support research for GBS, CIDP, and variants. Please note that this information is intended to help patients be aware of all of their options; the Foundation is unable to endorse any clinical trials.
A Clinical Study of Rozanolixizumab in Patients with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP)
Clinical research studies are scientific evaluations in people, led by researchers and physicians. They can help advance the understanding of a disease and are the most important way for researchers to find out if potential new treatments are safe and effective. Studies like these are needed to be able to make new treatments available to patients.
The international GBS Outcome Study (IGOS) is the largest and longest prospective trial designed to collect extensive data from patients afflicted with GBS in a systematic manner. The aim is to collect information from patients by intensive international collaboration. All patients are followed at standard intervals from the earliest phase of the disease up to at least one year after. At these time points all patients are clinically examined and documented according to the same protocol. The data generated from IGOS may fundamentally change how we care for patients with GBS and hasten research for more effective therapies.
The GBS|CIDP Foundation International is currently funding the IGOS trial through a research grant.
ADVANCE CIDP 1 Clinical Study
CIDP Treatment Trial, Now Enrolling Patients Worldwide!
Announcing a new study to investigate a potential new medication for CIDP patients. The ADVANCE-CIDPTM 1 Study is looking at a potential new treatment (an investigational medication) for patients with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP). It will assess if the investigational medication could help to prevent muscle weakness in the upper and lower limbs. The investigational medication is an immunoglobulin (made from proteins found in the body called antibodies) and is given as an infusion under the skin every 2, 3, or 4 weeks.
About the study
The study is currently looking for 170 patients at approximately 90 study centers worldwide.
If you take part, you may be involved in the study for up to 14 months. The study is now
enrolling. Requirements include:
-Must be 18 years of age or older
-Must have been diagnosed with CIDP
-Must have been receiving treatment with immunoglobulin infusions at a stable dose, every 2–6 weeks, for at least 12 weeks (3 months)
