Lifestyle Counseling and Medication for Adolescent Weight Management (QUEST)

This study will compare the effectiveness and durability of intensive behavioral counseling vs. medical management plus low-intensity behavioral counseling on BMI, body fat, cardiometabolic risk factors, and quality of life in adolescents with severe obesity. We hypothesize that liraglutide plus low-intensity behavioral counseling will elicit superior reductions in BMI (primary efficacy endpoint) and body fat and greater improvements in cardiometabolic risk factors and quality of life compared to intensive behavioral counseling at 56 weeks.

A Randomized Controlled Trial of Robotic versus Open Radical Hysterectomy for Cervical Cancer (ROCC trial)

This study is to investigate if robotic assisted laparoscopy (small incision surgery), is worse than open surgery (otherwise known as a laparotomy) when performing a radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer. Previous research has been done and shown that patients receiving laparoscopy had an increased risk of recurrence of their cervical cancer. But since that time a lot has been learned and improvements have been made, hence why we are relooking at the differences between the two surgical approaches.

Role of Oxidative Stress and Inflammation in Type 1 Gaucher Disease (GD1): Potential Use of Antioxidant/Anti-inflammatory Medications

The purpose of this study is to measure levels of blood and brain chemicals related to oxidative stress and inflammation in healthy volunteers and individuals with Type 1 Gaucher disease (GD1) to see if these levels are altered by GD1. We will also examine if there is a change in these blood and brain chemicals after participants begin taking oral N-acetylcysteine (NAC), which is available both as a prescription medication and a natural product that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Cisplatin and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Children and Young Adults With Hepatoblastoma or Liver Cancer After Surgery

This partially randomized phase II/III trial studies how well cisplatin and combination chemotherapy works in treating children and young adults (≤ 30 years of age) with hepatoblastoma or liver cancer after surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, doxorubicin, fluorouracil, vincristine sulfate, carboplatin, etoposide, irinotecan, sorafenib, gemcitabine and oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving combination chemotherapy after surgery may kill more tumor cells.

GLNE 007 Evaluation of Stool Based Markers for the Early Detection of Colorectal Cancers and Adenomas

The purpose of this study if to determine if stool or blood can be used to detect colon cancers as early or earlier than colonoscopy. The researchers plan to use these samples to learn about specific proteins (also known as biomarkers) that may indicate colon polyps, colon cancer or an increased risk of developing colon cancer. In order to learn more about preventing and detecting colon and rectal cancer, we are collecting samples from subjects with cancer, adenomas, and colonoscopies who may be at risk for polyps.

MT-2018-20: COG AALL1631 - International Phase 3 Trial in Philadelphia Chromosome-Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (Ph+ALL) Testing Imatinib in Combination With Two Different Cytotoxic Chemotherapy Backbones

This randomized phase III trial studies how well imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy work in treating patients (> 1 year and < 21 years) with newly diagnosed Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

An Open-Label, Pilot Clinical Trial To Test The Safety And Feasibility Of Intestinal Microbiota Transplantation In Patients With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

This pilot clinical trial will evaluate the initial safety and feasibility of intestinal microbiota transplantation (IMT) in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). This trial will inform development of future trials in treatment of PAH. Active drug in capsule form composed of freeze-dried, encapsulated intestinal microbiota from healthy donors will be administered to patients with PAH. This study will also allow for limited evaluation of pharmacokinetics in terms of donor microbiota engraftment and pharmacodynamics in terms of potential mechanisms. It will also allow for limited evaluation of cardiac endurance and function prior to and after IMT.

Measurement of Upper Aerodigestive Tract Pressures During Phonation

The purpose of this pilot research study is to test whether a tool called “High-Resolution Manometry” can diagnose laryngeal dystonia (also known as spasmodic dysphonia) and measure how well treatment works. High-Resolution Manometry measures pressures from a small catheter that is passed from your nose into your throat. We believe that pressures in the throat might be different for people with laryngeal dystonia than for people without laryngeal dystonia, or with other types of voice disorders. If we can diagnose laryngeal dystonia shortly after symptoms start, we can get patients the treatment they need sooner.

Tiragolumab and Atezolizumab for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory SMARCB1 or SMARCA4 Deficient Tumors

This phase I/II trial studies how well tiragolumab and atezolizumab works when given to children and adults with SMARCB1 or SMARCA4 deficient tumors that that has either come back (relapsed) or does not respond to therapy (refractory). SMARCB1 or SMARCA4 deficiency means that tumor cells are missing the SMARCB1 and SMARCA4 genes, which is related to having more aggressive cancers that are harder to treat. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as tiragolumab and atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

Low sulfur fecal transplant for ulcerative colitis

This study is a pilot randomized controlled clinical trial examining how fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) given by capsules can change the bacteria and inflammation in people with active ulcerative colitis (UC). We will look at global changes of bacterial composition while on FMT versus those not on FMT. We are examining some specific groups of bacteria that are related to sulfate reduction. Will will measure the changes of sulfate reducing bacteria over time and among those who get better and those who don't. Overall, we aim to determine if we can alter the microbiota in UC towards a healthy, more diverse microbiota resembling the donor using capsule FMT material.

Fecal Microbiota Transplant for Postoperative Crohn's Disease

People with Crohn's disease often need surgery. The gut bacteria of people with Crohn's is associated with Crohn's disease coming back after surgery. Fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) after surgery might be a way to prevent Crohn's disease from coming back after surgery. This study aims to determine if fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) taken by capsules results in the same amount of good bacteria in the guts as FMT by colonoscopy in people with Crohn's disease who have had surgery. Participants will be randomized to get FMT by capsules or colonoscopy. Colonoscopy with biopsies 8-weeks after the FMT will be used to assess the good bacteria in the gut.

Theta Phase-specific TMS to Modulate Prefrontal Activity

Approach/avoidance behavior is a reliable marker of the emotional processes in the human brain. Although existing scientific studies found a correlation between the approach/avoidance behavior and ongoing theta activity (3-7 Hz) in the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the causal evidence of the phase-dependent role and strength of association between the prefrontal theta oscillations and approach/avoidance behavior are still unclear. Here, we will monitor the theta activity in real-time non-invasively using electroencephalography and probe it with transcranial magnetic stimulation at the peak vs. trough phases. These data will provide novel, causal understanding of the mechanisms of emotional processing in human brain.

Phase 3 Multicenter, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial of Viralym-M;(ALVR105) for the Treatment of Patients With Virus-Associated Hemorrhagic Cystitis After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplant

The study hypothesis is that the administration of Viralym-M to patients with virus-associated HC will demonstrate superiority for the time to resolution of HC (as measured by resolution of macroscopic hematuria) compared to patients treated with placebo. The primary hypothesis will be tested in patients with BKV viruria to demonstrate superiority over placebo in this population (BK Intent-to-Treat [ITT] Population). A supplementary analysis will be conducted in all patients with any viral-associated HC (BKV, JCV, AdV, EBV, CMV, and/or HHV-6) in order to evaluate efficacy in this broader population (ITT Population). Further detail is provided in the statistical section below and will be described in the Statistical Analysis Plan (SAP).

Long-term toxicities and quality of life of cancer survivors treated with immunotherapy

Immunotherapies, such as immune checkpoint inhibitors, have greatly improved survival for many cancers and are now approved for over half of all cancer patients. However, many patients receiving immunotherapy experience Grade 3 and 4 toxicities, termed immune-related adverse events (IRAEs) which cause frequent hospitalizations, emergency department visits, impaired health-related quality of life (QOL) and often discontinuation of therapy. While clinical trials of immunotherapeutic drugs have reported on IRAEs over short time-periods, the real-life and long-term frequencies of and experiences with IRAEs outside of clinical trials, and the general experience of taking immunotherapies long-term remain unknown. The goal of this protocol is to build a prospective cohort study of cancer survivors who receive immunotherapies.

Biologic Abatement and Capturing Kids Outcomes and Flare Frequency in Juvenile Spondyloarthritis (BACK OFF JSpA) (BACK-OFF JSpA)

This study is enrolling participants who have been diagnosed with juvenile spondyloarthritis, are taking a tumor necrosis factor inhibitor (TNFi) and have reached a clinically inactive disease state for a minimum of six months. Researchers want to know if children who have maintained inactive disease for at least 6 months can maintain quiet disease without taking their medication as frequently or stop the TNFi therapy. Quiet disease means that disease related symptoms are not active or being experienced in the patient. Researchers also want to know the safest method to bring patients off medication. If a flare does occur during therapy reduction, researchers want to find out whether they can predict when a flare is most likely to happen, and how quickly an inactive disease state can be recaptured.

Assessing Movement Disorder Patients

Patients with movement disorders, for example Parkinson’s disease (PD), essential tremor (ET) and dystonia, will be assessed using appropriate clinical and (sensor) quantified measures in order to obtain quantitative and qualitative data that is not consistently obtained in clinical exams. This data will aid in assessing trends and outcomes in motor and non-motor signs, side effects and symptoms that correlate with deep brain stimulation (DBS) lead location, stimulation parameters, and other variables, for those that have received this treatment, in order to inform neurosurgical and neurological practices aimed at optimizing treatment and therapy for movement disorders. For those patients that have received DBS lead implant(s), this study will include the analysis of patient’s clinical and/or research-related intraoperative neurophysiological recordings collected during the microelectrode recording portion of the DBS lead implant surgery. Additionally, researchers may analyze trends and outcomes by gathering data from retrospective and prospective chart review.

An Adaptive Algorithm-Based Approach to Treatment for Adolescent Depression

The purpose of the current study is to evaluate the effectiveness of two adaptive treatment strategies (ATSs) for adolescent depression. The ATSs include delivery of an evidence-based psychotherapy for adolescent depression (interpersonal psychotherapy, IPT-A), systematic symptom monitoring, and an empirically-derived algorithm that specifies whether, when, and how to augment IPT-A. Two hundred depressed adolescents (age 12-18) will be recruited to participate in a 16-week SMART conducted in an outpatient community mental health clinic. Adolescents will be randomized to the IPT-A ATS condition (N=134) or the community clinic’s usual care (UC) (N=66). The aims of this R01 are to (1) evaluate the effectiveness of the ATSs embedded in this trial, (2) evaluate adolescents’ interpersonal functioning as a treatment target of IPT-A, (3) evaluate moderators of initial treatment and treatment augmentation strategies, and (4) conduct a process evaluation to identify barriers and facilitators that influenced ATS implementation.

Graded Motor Imagery for Women at Risk for Developing Type I CRPS following Distal Radius Fractures

Background: Distal radius fractures (DRF) account for nearly one-fifth of all fractures in older adults, and women experience them 5x as often as men. Most DRF occur with low impact injuries to the wrist with an outstretched hand, and are often managed via closed treatment and cast immobilization. Women sustaining a DRF are at risk for upper limb immobility, sensorimotor changes, edema and type I complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Since CRPS onset is likely influenced by alterations in the brain’s somatosensory region, a rehabilitation intervention, Graded Motor Imagery (GMI), aims to restore cortical representation, including sensory and motor function, of the affected limb. To date, there are no studies on the use of GMI in reducing risk of or preventing the onset of type I CRPS in women with DRF treated with cast immobilization. Due to a higher likelihood of women with this injury developing type I CRPS, it is important to early intervention is needed. Methods/Design: This article describes a six-week randomized comparative effectiveness trial, where the outcomes of a modified GMI program (mGMI) + standard of care (SOC) group (n=33) are compared to a SOC only control group (n=33). Immediately following cast immobilization, both groups participate in four 1-hour clinic-based sessions, and a home program for 10 minutes three times daily until cast removal. Blinded assessments occur within 1 week of cast immobilization (baseline), at three weeks post cast immbolization, cast removal, and at three months post cast removal. The primary outcomes are patient reported wrist/hand function and symptomology on the Patient Rated Wristand Hand Evaluation, McGill Pain Questionnaire, and Budapest CRPS Criteria. The secondary outcomes are grip strength, active range of motion as per goniometry, circumferential edema measurements, and joint position sense. Discussion: This study will investigate the early effects of mGMI + SOC hand therapy compared to SOC alone. We intend to investigate whether an intervention, specifically mGMI, used to treat preexisiting pain and motor dysfunction might also be used to mitigate these problems prior to their onset. If positive effects are observed, mGMI + SOC may be considered for incorporation into early rehabilitation program.

The HEALEY ALS Platform Trial is a perpetual multi-center, multi-regimen clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of investigational products for the treatment of ALS. The trial is designed as a perpetual platform trial. This means that there is a single Master Protocol dictating the conduct of the trial. The Master Protocol describes the overall framework of the platform trial, including the target population, inclusion and exclusion criteria, randomization scheme, study endpoints, schedule of assessments, trial design, the mechanism for adding and removing interventions, and the statistical methodology and recommended statistical methods for evaluating interventions. Interventions (i.e., investigational products) are tested in trial regimens. Each trial regimen is described in its own Regimen-Specific Appendix (RSA) to the Master Protocol. The RSA will describe the nature of the intervention and its mechanism of action (MoA) including the mode and frequency of administration, dosage, the specific target population (to be selected within the pre-defined subsets of the Master Protocol), additional enrollment criteria (if any), sample size, and other specific intervention-related information and assessments (safety or other assessments that may be in addition to those outlined in the Master Protocol).

Inclusion Criteria:

• Sporadic or familial ALS diagnosed as clinically possible, probable, lab-supported probable, or definite ALS defined by revised El Escorial criteria.
• Age 18 years or older.
• Capable of providing informed consent and complying with study procedures, in the SI's opinion.
• Time since onset of weakness due to ALS ≤ 36 months at the time of the Master Protocol Screening Visit.
• Vital Capacity ≥ 50% of predicted capacity for age, height, and sex at the time of the Master Protocol Screening Visit measured by Slow Vital Capacity (SVC), or, if required due to pandemic-related restrictions, Forced Vital Capacity (FVC).
• Participants must either not take riluzole or be on a stable dose of riluzole for ≥ 30 days prior to the Master Protocol Screening Visit. Riluzole-naïve participants are permitted in the study.
• Participants must either not take edaravone or have completed at least one cycle of edaravone prior to the Master Protocol Screening Visit. Edaravone-naïve participants are permitted in the study.
• Participants must have the ability to swallow pills and liquids at the time of the Master Protocol Screening Visit and, in the SI's opinion, have the ability to swallow for the duration of the study.
• Geographically accessible to the site.
Exclusion Criteria:

• Clinically significant unstable medical condition (other than ALS) that would pose a risk to the participant, according to SI's judgment (e.g., cardiovascular instability, systemic infection, untreated thyroid dysfunction, or clinically significant laboratory abnormality or EKG changes). Lab abnormalities include, but are not limited to: Hemoglobin < 10 g/dL, White Blood Cells < 3.0 x 103/mm3, Neutrophils, Absolute ≤ 1000/mm3, Eosinophilia (absolute eosinophil count of ≥ 500 eosinophils per microliter), low platelet counts (< 150 x 109 per liter), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) greater than 3 times the upper limit of normal (ULN), eGFR < 30 mL/min/1.73m2, thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels >10 mIU/L or <0.01 mIU/L.
• Presence of unstable psychiatric disease, cognitive impairment, dementia or substance abuse that would impair ability of the participant to provide informed consent, in the SI's opinion.
• Active cancer or history of cancer, except for the following: basal cell carcinoma or successfully treated squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, cervical carcinoma in situ, prostatic carcinoma in situ, or other malignancies curatively treated and with no evidence of disease recurrence for at least 3 years.
• Use of investigational treatments for ALS (off-label use or active participation in a clinical trial) within 5 half-lives (if known) or 30 days (whichever is longer) prior to the Master Protocol Screening Visit.
• Exposure at any time to any gene therapies under investigation for the treatment of ALS (off-label use or investigational).
• If female, breastfeeding, known to be pregnant, planning to become pregnant during the study, or of child-bearing potential and unwilling to use effective contraception for the duration of the trial and for 3 months, or longer as specified in each RSA, after discontinuing study treatment.
• If male of reproductive capacity, unwilling to use effective contraception for the duration of the trial and for 3 months, or longer as specified in each RSA, after discontinuing study treatment.
• Anything that would place the participant at increased risk or preclude the participant's full compliance with or completion of the study, in the SI's opinion.
• If a participant is being re-screened, the disqualifying condition has not been resolved, or the mandatory wash-out duration has not occurred.
• For those participating in the optional CSF collection, contraindication to undergoing a lumbar puncture (LP) in the SI's opinion. Participants undergoing the LP must not be currently taking anticoagulation medications such as warfarin that would be a contraindication to LP; aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories are allowed.
