Current Primary Outcome Measures
 (submitted: March 21, 2019)
Change in symptoms [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Relief of primary indication (perceived therapeutic benefit of product)as reported by parent or caregiver on a 1-10 Lichert scale with 1 being minimally effective and 10 being extremely effective
Original Primary Outcome Measures Same as current
Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures
 (submitted: March 21, 2019)
  • Description and incidence of patient or caregiver reported side effects [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    There is no particular instrument used in collecting this data. It is an open ended question where by patients and caregivers report possible side effects from the medical marijuana. Investigators will report the incidence in percentages.
  • Changes in drug concentrations [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The amount of a drug in a given volume of blood plasma, measured as the number of micrograms per milliliter
  • Rate of bioavailabilty [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The degree and rate at which the medication is absorbed by the body's circulatory system, the systemic circulation.
  • Volume of distribution [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The volume of medication that would be necessary to contain the total amount of the administered drug at the same concentration that it is observed in the blood plasma.
  • Report area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The area under the curve (AUC) is the definite integral in a plot of drug concentration in blood plasma vs. time
  • Report half-life [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Half life is described as how long it takes for half of the dose to be metabolized and eliminated from the bloodstream.
  • Assess therapeutic range [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Comparison of the amount of a therapeutic agent that causes the therapeutic effect to the amount that causes toxicity.
Original Secondary Outcome Measures Same as current
Current Other Pre-specified Outcome Measures Not Provided

Descriptive Information
Brief Title Pharmacokinetic (PK) and Pharmacodynamics (PD) Study of Ilera Specific Products
Official Title Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Study of Ilera Medical Marijuana Products
Brief Summary This is an observational study of medical marijuana manufactured and dispensed by Ilera and given as standard treatment for a variety of approved serious medical conditions as defined by individual state law. All patients who are receiving one of the four formulations (Dream, Soothe, Shine and Ease) of medical marijuana will be provided a study flyer and asked to contact the study team via phone or email. Once the study team confirms eligibility, the study team will meet the subject face-to-face most likely at their dispensary (or other mutually agreeable location) and obtain informed consent, and assent when appropriate. Initial baseline demographic information, medical history and medication inventory will be completed. Also, since it is possible that the Investigators will enroll subjects across the region, Investigators anticipate the need to seek consent over the phone for many patients. This will be done via Skype, Go to Meeting, Facetime or similar platforms so that the Investigators can have a face to face interaction with the potential subjects. Regardless of where this discussion takes place (i.e., in person or via the web), all reasonable safeguards to ensure patient privacy will be taken. Patients or their legally authorized representative (LAR) will be given sufficient (i.e., up to several hours/days) to make a decision to participate in this study. Study staff will fax or email the consent form for their signature and no study procedures will begin until the signed consent form is received by the study team. The subjects or their LARs will be instructed on obtaining the blood samples. Blood draws will be completed in the subjects' home after one of their standard doses is taken.
Detailed Description

This is a prospective PK/PD study that will include patients who are currently legally consuming one of the four medical marijuana formulations (Dream, Soothe, Shine and Ease) from Ilera Healthcare as part of their standard therapy for one of the state approved serious medical conditions.

Part 1 of the study consists of intake data of select subjects.

  • The patients will be identified at a dispensary that offers Ilera products.
  • Patients be given a flyer about the study by either study staff or dispensary staff.
  • Eligible patients will be asked to contact the study team if they are interested in the study.
  • If the patient is interested, a face-to-face (in person at the dispensary or in the patients home or other agreed upon location) consent/assent will be obtained.
  • Also, since it is possible that Investigators will enroll subjects across the region, Investigators anticipate the need to seek consent over the phone for many patients. This will be done via Skype, Go to Meeting, Facetime or similar platforms so that the investigators can have a face to face interaction with the potential subjects. Investigators will obtain written consent in all cases. Investigators will have them sign and fax or email/scan the signed consent form back to the study team.
  • Once consent is obtained demographic information will be collected as well as a medical and medication history and several questions related specifically to the medical marijuana product and its perceived effectiveness.
  • The data will be recorded in the REDCAP database. Part 2 of the study consists of pharmacokinetic evaluation of select subjects.
  • Parents/ care providers/ patients when appropriate will undergo education regarding PK sample acquisition
  • PK blood samples will be obtained and sent to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for determination of cannibidiol/ Tetrahydrocannabinol/ cannabinol (CBD/THC/CBN) concentrations
  • PK and PD analysis will occur
