Recruitment for Nicotine and Tobacco Related Research at Penn State Hershey

The purpose of this project is to screen potential participants for multiple research studies being conducted by tobacco researchers at Penn State Hershey. Since there are multiple IRB approved studies enrolling at Penn State Hershey with similar but not identical inclusion/exclusion criteria, it is more efficient for the researchers and participants to have one phone number to call initially for basic screening. After completing this, the participant can be redirected for more specific screening if they are found to be potentially eligible for one of the studies.

Participants will fill out a 5-minute survey on tobacco use in order to find out which study they may be eligible for.

Saliva microRNA signatures in infants with wheezing associated respiratory illness

Wheezing is a common symptom of respiratory distress in infants and children. Infants who wheeze are at increased risk of being diagnosed with asthma, the most common chronic disease of childhood. This study aims to yield an objective measure of asthma risk using molecular markers obtained from saliva. Saliva miRNA (markers used in this study) levels will be measured using HiSeq technology. Refinement and validation of this measure in future large-scale studies could allow clinicians to accurately predict for families an infant’s risk of asthma and optimize medical management to prevent future hospitalizations.

If your child has a respiratory illness you will be asked to provide a saliva sample at one clinic visit. Six months after the initial encounter, you will be asked to do complete surveys designed to be done remotely at home.

A Phase 2 Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Barzolvolimab (CDX-0159) in Adults with Active Eosinophilic Esophagitis (The “EvolvE” Study)

This is a phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study evaluating the efficacy and safety profile of barzolvolimab (CDX-0159) in patients with active EoE. The study will enroll approximately 60 patients.This study consists of four distinct phases lasting approximately a year. Each patient will receive 1 dose (2 injections) every 4 weeks. The participants will be required to sign the informed consent before any procedures are performed. If eligible for screening, they will need to have standard lab tests (blood and urine), EKG, pregnancy test if applicable, and tests for COVID-19. They will also be required to have EGD with biopsies done during the screening period and at weeks 12 and 28. If eligible to continue, the participants will be randomized on day 1, when they will receive their first treatment. They will be required to come back to the clinic in two weeks and four weeks after that. They will have to complete the e-diary questionnaires at home.

There will be ten in person visits, including screening, placebo-controlled treatment and active (open label) treatment. In addition, there are four follow up visits every 4 weeks. The participants must sign the informed consent. There are going to have vital signs checked at every visit. Some visits have a physical exam. There are blood tests, urine tests, ECG, and COVID -19 tests done. The participants will have EGD procedure with biopsies at screening, and at 12 and 28 weeks of treatment. There will be four study treatments administered in the clinic. The concomitant medications, and adverse events will be monitored and documented. Serum and urine pregnancy tests will be performed if applicable. Participants will be asked to complete electronic diary daily.
