Trial ID Title Status Sponsor Phase Summary
NCT00004778 Phase III Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of Antenatal Thyrotropin-Releasing Hormone in Pregnant Women With Threatened Premature Delivery Completed Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Phase 3 OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the effect of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) on the severity of initial lung disease and occurrence of chronic lung disease when given antenatally to women with threatened premature delivery. II. Evaluate possible mechanisms for the effects of TRH on the severity and incidence of chronic lung disease. III.

NCT00005905 Leptin to Treat Lipodystrophy Completed National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) Phase 2 This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the leptin replacement therapy in treating lipoatrophy or lipodystrophy-a condition in which there is a total or partial loss of fat cells. Patients with lipodystrophy lack sufficient leptin, because this hormone is produced by fat cells. The leptin deficiency usually causes high blood lipid (fat) levels and insulin resistance that may lead to diabetes. Patients may have hormone imbalances, fertility problems, uncontrolled appetite, and liver disease due to fat accumulation. Patients 15 years and older with lipodystrophy are eligible for this study. Candidates are screened with a medical history and physical examination, and fasting blood tests. Those enrolled undergo the following additional procedures: - Ultrasound of the liver and, if abnormalities are found, possibly a liver biopsy - Resting metabolic rate measurement - measures the amount of oxygen breathed at rest in order to calculate how many calories are required to maintain resting body functions - Magnetic resonance imaging of the liver and other organs, and of muscle and fat - Estimation of body fat - measurements of height, weight, hip size, and skin folds over the arms and abdomen to estimate body fat content - Insulin tolerance test - measures blood glucose levels after administration of insulin. Insulin is given through an intravenous (IV) catheter (a thin tube placed in a vein) and blood is drawn 5 minutes before the test begins, when the test begins, and 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30 minutes into the test - Oral glucose tolerance test - measures blood glucose and insulin levels after drinking a glucose (sugar) solution. Blood samples are drawn through an IV catheter 15 minutes before the test begins, at the time the test begins, and 30, 60, 90 and 180 minutes into the test - Intravenous glucose tolerance test - measures tissue response to insulin and glucose after glucose is injected into a vein. The glucose injection is followed by a short infusion of insulin and then blood samples are taken over 3 hours to measure insulin and glucose levels - Appetite level and food intake - measures hunger level and caloric intake. Patients are questioned about their hunger level, given a variety of foods they may choose to eat and questioned again at various intervals about hunger level. On another day, patients are given breakfast (usually a milkshake) and when they want to eat again, the appetite level and caloric intake study is repeated. - Hormone function tests - the function of three hormones influenced by leptin (corticotropin-releasing hormone, thyrotropin-releasing hormone and luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone) are assessed. The hormones are injected intravenously and then blood samples are drawn. When all the tests are completed, leptin therapy begins. The drug is injected under the skin twice a day for 4 months by the patient or a caregiver (similar to self-administered insulin injections for diabetes). Blood is drawn once a month to monitor the effects of treatment and drug side effects. At clinic visits scheduled 1, 2 and 4 months after therapy starts, patients have a physical examination and meet with a dietitian. Medication dosage is also increased at these visits. At the end of 4 months, all baseline studies described above are repeated. Throughout the study, all patients complete a form once a week, in which they record their symptoms. Patients with diabetes also measure their blood glucose levels at home before each meal and at bedtime.
NCT00027456 Leptin to Treat Severe Insulin Resistance - Pilot Study Completed National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) Phase 2 This pilot study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of leptin therapy in two children with severe insulin resistance syndrome. Patients with this condition often have high blood sugar levels and may have hormone imbalances, a constant feeling of warmth, fertility problems, large appetite, and enlarged liver due to fat accumulation. Leptin is a hormone produced by fat cells. It influences appetite, affects levels of reproductive hormones, and possibly manages how the body reacts to insufficient food. Certain people with severe insulin resistance syndromes have decreased amounts of fat tissue and make little or no leptin. A 13-year-old male and an 11-year-old female with severe insulin resistance will participate in this study. They will have the following tests and procedures before beginning 4 months of leptin therapy: - Insulin tolerance test - measures blood sugar levels after intravenous (IV) administration of insulin. Blood samples are collected through the IV tube at various intervals during the 1-hour test. - Ultrasound of the liver and, if abnormalities are found, possibly liver biopsies. - Fasting blood tests - to measure blood count, blood lipids, and various hormones and assess liver function. - Resting metabolic rate - to measure the amount of oxygen breathed at rest in order to calculate how many calories are required to maintain resting body functions. - Magnetic resonance imaging of the liver and other organs, and of muscle and fat. - Pelvic ultrasound in female patient - to detect ovarian cysts. - Estimation of body fat - measurements of height, weight, waist, hip size, and skin folds over the arms and abdomen to estimate body fat content. - Oral glucose tolerance test - measures blood sugar and insulin levels. The patient drinks a very sweet drink containing glucose (sugar), after which blood samples are collected through an IV tube in an arm vein at various intervals during the 3-hour test. - Intravenous glucose tolerance test - measures tissue response to insulin and glucose after glucose injection and insulin infusion. Blood is collected over 3 hours to measure insulin and glucose levels. - Appetite level and food intake - to measure hunger level and caloric intake. Patients are questioned about their hunger level, given a variety of foods they may choose to eat and questioned again at various intervals about hunger level. On another day, patients are given breakfast (usually a milkshake) and when they want to eat again, the appetite level and caloric intake study is repeated. - Hormone function tests - the function of three hormones influenced by leptin (corticotropin-releasing hormone, thyrotropin-releasing hormone and luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone) are assessed. The hormones are injected intravenously and then blood samples are drawn. - Questionnaire - patients complete a questionnaire about their activities and how they feel. - 24-hour urine collections - to measure specific hormones, proteins and sugars excreted in the urine. When the above tests are completed, leptin therapy will start. The drug is injected under the skin twice a day for 4 months. Patients will record their symptoms weekly throughout the study. Those with diabetes will measure their blood glucose levels daily before each meal and at bedtime. Follow-up visits at 1, 2 and 4 months after therapy will include a physical examination, blood tests and a meeting with a dietitian. At the 4-month visit, the tests done at the beginning of the study will be repeated.
