COG ADVL1823 - Larotrectinib (LOXO-101, NSC# 788607, IND# 141824) for Previously Untreated TRK Fusion Pediatric Solid Tumors and TRK Fusion Relapsed Pediatric Acute Leukemias

This is a non-randomized, open label, phase II trial that will study the side effects and how well larotrectinib works in treating patients (≤ 30 years of age) with previously untreated TRK fusion solid tumors and TRK fusion acute leukemia that has come back. Larotrectinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

A Comparison of ACL Repair With BEAR Device vs. Autograft Patellar Tendon ACL Reconstruction (BEAR-MOON)

This study is designed to determine whether anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair with the bridge-enhanced ACL repair (BEAR) device is inferior to autograft patellar tendon ACL reconstruction. We hypothesize that the ACL repair with BEAR technology (which does not require harvest of autograft tissue like patellar tendon) will not be inferior to patellar tendon ACL reconstruction in either of the co-primary outcomes. Our co-primary endpoints will be assessed by blinded assessors and include instrumented anterior laxity (KT-1000) and a patient reported outcome measure (IKDC Subjective Score). All patients 18-40 years of age presenting to surgeons in the study who are candidates for ACL surgery (scheduled within 50 days of injury) will be offered participation in the randomized control trial (RCT). Patients will be randomized and will undergo specified rehabilitation protocols post-operatively with primary assessments of KT1000 and IKDC Subjective Score at 6 months, 1 year, and 2 years.

Early identification of right ventricular dysfunction and failure in cardiothoracic and liver surgical patients

This is prospective, non-interventional, observational study. The main purpose of this study is to develop an algorithm for the early detection of RV dysfunction/failure. The algorithm will be based on the RV pressure waveform gradients (the difference between early right ventricular diastolic pressure and end right ventricular diastolic pressure), RV end-diastolic pressure, and RV contractility (dpdt) and validated through associated clinical measures including perioperative mean arterial blood pressure, advanced hemodynamic measures like cardiac output, stroke volume and systemic vascular resistance, perioperative cerebral oximetry (a measure of cerebral perfusion), intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography and clinical outcomes. These associations will be used to train multiple mathematical models to discriminate between patients with and without RV dysfunction/failure as a primary endpoint. Examining the association between the slope of the diastolic right ventricular waveform (RV end-diastolic pressure, and RV contractility) and perioperative hemodynamics, TEE, cerebral saturation and clinical outcomes will allow us to estimate the specificity and sensitivity of our model.

The role of cytomegalovirus and inflammation on patient symptoms and outcomes in ovarian cancer

The central research idea for this award is that CMV reactivation is an unrecognized complicating factor in the treatment of ovarian cancer. Based on preliminary data, our hypotheses are: a) ovarian cancer patients with elevated biomarkers of CMV report greater fatigue and poorer quality of life; b) CMV and inflammation (C-reactive protein; CRP) levels in ovarian cancer patients are higher post-chemotherapy than baseline; c) ovarian cancer patients who experience increases in CMV and/or CRP report greater fatigue and poorer quality of life; d) ovarian cancer patients who experience increases in CMV and CRP will have shorter recurrence-free and overall survival. We propose the following specific aims and studies to address these research questions: Aim 1: Determine the relationship between CMV and ovarian cancer patient-reported symptoms post-treatment. A cross-sectional study of 200 women with ovarian cancer within two years of completing first line chemotherapy will be recruited for a one-time blood draw and survey. We will assess CMV status by measuring IgG serology and CMV DNA levels in serum (indicative of active infection/reactivation) and determine their relationship with patient-reported symptoms including fatigue and quality of life. Aim 2: Characterize the changes in CMV and CRP levels following chemotherapy and their association with patient symptoms and outcomes. A prospective study of 150 women with newly diagnosed ovarian cancer will evaluate the association between serum CMV IgG, CRP IgG, and CMV DNA levels and patient-reported symptoms, recurrence-free and overall survival. Planned blood samples include before, after and 6 months post-chemotherapy completion with planned surveys and clinical follow-up at least every six months for five years.

Concurrent Aerobic Exercise and Cognitive Training to Prevent Alzheimer's in At-risk Older Adults (Exergames)

The purpose of this study is to examine the efficacy of a new low-cost Virtual Reality Cognitive Training (VRCT) combined with concurrent cycling intervention called exergame on improving cognition in at-risk community-dwelling older adults at risk for Alzheimer's disease and dementia. We will conduct this study in two phases: Phase I (Feasiblity Testing)aims: Aim1. Develop a prototype exergame that supports integrated, concurrent cycling and VRCT. Aim 2. Examine the feasibility of the exergame in older adults at risk for AD. Phase II (Effect Testing) aims: Aim 1. Develop a fully-featured version of the VRCT aspect of the exergame. Aim 2. Determine the efficacy of the exergame in older adults at risk for AD using an RCT. We hypothesize that cognitive improvement will be greatest for exergame subjects followed by cycling subjects, and least in control subjects. Aim 3. Assess the distraction effect of the concurrent VRCT in exergame on gains in aerobic fitness. We hpothesize that exergame subjects will achieve similar gains in aerobic fitness to cycling only subjects (difference is < 1 standard deviation).

CHEC-OB-17: CHaractErizing CFTR Modulated Changes in Sweat Chloride and their Association with Clinical Outcomes

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is caused by gene mutations leading to absence or dysfunction of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein which functions as a chloride channel in epithelial cells lining the respiratory tract, gastrointestinal system and sweat glands. Over the past several years, CFTR modulators (small molecule therapies that improve activity of the CFTR protein) have been shown in large clinical trials to improve clinical outcomes in people with CF resulting in the FDA approval of the modulators ivacaftor and lumacaftor/ivacaftor. In clinical trials, SC measurements emerged as an important marker of CFTR activity. The CHEC-SC study is looking at SC levels in people with CF who are currently being treated with CFTR modulator therapies. This study is being done to answer the following questions: • Why do different CF patients have larger or smaller reductions in sweat chloride after treatment with CFTR modulator therapy? • Does the sweat chloride value achieved after treatment with CFTR modulator therapy impact long-term health outcomes in people with CF?

HPS-4/TIMI 65/ORION-4: A Double-blind Randomized Placebo-controlled Trial Assessing the Effects of Inclisiran on Clinical Outcomes Among People With Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease

The HPS-4/TIMI 65/ORION-4 study aims to provide evidence about both the efficacy and safety of inclisiran. It is intended to be conducted at approximately 150 clinical sites in Europe (primarily in the UK) and North America. Approximately 15,000 participants aged 55 years or older with pre-existing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease will be randomized between inclisiran sodium 300 mg and matching placebo (given by subcutaneous injection on the day of randomization, at 3 months and then every 6-months) in a 1:1 ratio for a planned median duration of about 5 years. Consistent with relevant guideline recommendations for people with vascular disease, it is intended that participants be on intensive background LDL-lowering therapy (for example, atorvastatin 40 or 80 mg daily, simvastatin 40 or 80 mg daily, or rosuvastatin 20 or 40 mg daily) at screening. In order to achieve a target LDL cholesterol reduction of at least 1.2 mmol/l [45 mg/dL], it is intended to recruit a study population with a mean LDL cholesterol of at least 2.6 mmol/l [100mg/dL] at baseline.

Using Smartphone Sensor Technology to Characterize Ambulatory Patterns of Participants With Peripheral Artery Disease

Supervised exercise training (SET) improves functioning and quality of life for patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD). However, these programs have primarily been conducted in research settings, thus the physical activity that patients complete in real-world settings (urban and rural hospitals) is unknown. The proposed project will use a novel smartphone app called Daynamica, to summarize patients activity patterns and also to enhance patient-study staff communication and subsequently improve PAD patient health outcomes.

New biomonitoring methodologies to measure DNA adducts in urinary cells

Tobacco smoking and the consumption of well-done cooked meats are considered risk factors for bladder cancer. However, exactly how these exposures contribute to bladder cancer is still mostly unknown. The purpose of this pilot study is to evaluate the potential of urine to serve as a biospecimen for the analysis of cancer biomarkers. Participants will be asked to collect their urine from when they first wake up until 6 hours afterward.

Magnesium sulfate as adjuvant analgesia and its effect on opi-ate use of post-operative transplant patients in the pediatric ICU

This study will be a prospective analysis of a post-operative transplant cohort in the PICU to determine whether using magnesium sulfate as an analgesic adjuvant can decrease overall opiate requirement in this patient population. It will indirectly also look at opiate-induced side effects, effects on overall PICU course, and applicability/safety of a magnesium infusion in pediatric patients. It is well known that post-operative analgesia in children is one of many challenges faced by surgeons and intensivists, both due to the invasiveness of procedures as well as the biopsychosocial variance in these populations. TPIAT (total pancreatectomy and islet autotransplantation) and liver transplant patients at our institute have protocols designed for their management, part of which includes continuous opiate dosing, other adjuvants (such as tylenol, ketorolac, ketamine), and sometimes paravertebral nerve blocks. All of these medications, despite their benefits, come with their own unique side effect profile. Opiates remain no stranger to this, in addition to a distinct growing shortage nationwide. Magnesium sulfate has been cited as a potential source of adjuvant analgesia by its action on the NMDA receptor. Pediatric populations where magnesium has shown potential analgesic benefit include post-tonsillectomy, post-osteotomy (cerebral palsy), post-operative scoliosis repair, sickle cell, and hsevere headache management. Literature also supports use in adult populations, which includes more expansive operative cohorts. Added benefit of magnesium is its overall safety profile (symptoms not present until levels significantly above normal indices), cost-effectiveness, and incidental overall prevalence of hypomagnesemia within PICU populations. We plan to implement a magnesium therapy protocol to all of our liver and TPIAT transplant children in the pediatric ICU with dosing that has been used both efficaciously (in comparison to available adult data) and safely (in comparison to other pediatric studies). This will be done via a bolus dose in the operating room followed by infusion dosing for the next 48 hours. Magnesium levels will be checked serially to ensure they remain below toxic levels. We will track opiate dosage metrics throughout their post-operative ICU admission, as well as other secondary outcomes listed elsewhere. The control will be a retrospective chart review of the same primary and secondary outcome measures from previous post-transplant patients in this PICU. The study protocol has been approved by the U.S Food & Drug Administration, which will also be involved in monitoring of the study.

COG AHEP1531 - Pediatric Hepatic Malignancy International Therapeutic Trial (PHITT)

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.
