Each one-hour session will provide training and education opportunities for OnCore, MCW’s software designed to facilitate effective management and compliance of clinical trials. The CTSI will conduct five (5) separate sessions to highlight the implementation of OnCore within individual departments. Attendees will learn about OnCore’s various core...

Adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH 1-39) is a natural endogenous protein that shows intrinsic immunomodulation via melanocortin receptors absent corticotropism. Parenteral ACTH is a FDA approved biological agent (1978) for the treatment of MS exacerbations and for flares of other autoimmune diseases for over 40 years (RA,...

This is a randomized, double-blind, parallel group, placebo-controlled study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a fixed 300 mg dose of tralokinumab administered subcutaneously in subjects with uncontrolled asthma despite the use of regular asthma controller inhaled medication and having a history of asthma exacerbations.Approximately...

To help us in...

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease associated with aging that gradually destroys sharp, central vision. The form of advanced AMD being studied in this clinical trial is commonly referred to as wet AMD (also called neovascular or exudative AMD). Wet AMD occurs when abnormal...

People with a retinal vein occlusion experience macular edema (swelling in the center of the retina, the thin light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye) from blockage in a large retinal vein. This blockage is called a central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). Retinal veins...

Researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin are studying what kind of modifications to one’s genetic code would lead to high blood pressure. We are looking to enroll identical twins who would have same genetic code, however, with different levels of blood pressure. This would...

Researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin are studying causes of Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD). DDD is not really a disease but a term used to describe the normal changes in the spinal discs as you age. MRI techniques now allow scientists to view the...
