Measurement of Glucose Homeostasis in Human Brain by NMR: Effect of Recurrent Hypoglycemia on Type 1 Diabetes (Aim 1)

This study will explore the cerebral mechanisms of impaired awareness of hypoglycemia (IAH) in type 1 diabetics (T1D) following exposure to experimental recurrent hypoglycemia (HG). To induce IAH, patients with T1D identified to have normal awareness of hypoglycemia (NAH) will undergo three 2-hour long hypoglycemic clamps. Neurochemical profiles will be measured by high field MRS before and after induction of IAH at a fourth clamp. Participant glycemic variability for ~2 weeks and activity/sleep for ~1 week before the induction of IAH will be monitored as these factors have been shown to alter responses to HG.

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.

MT2016-15 :Reduced Intensity (RIC) Conditioning And Transplantation of HLA-Haploidentical Related Hematopoietic Cells (Haplo-HCT) For Patients With Hematologic Malignancies

This is a two stage phase II trial of HLA-haploidentical related hematopoietic cells transplant (Haplo-HCT) using a reduced intensity conditioning (cyclophosphamide, fludarabine, melphalan, total body irradiation) with modifications based on factors including age and comorbidities. Bone marrow is the donor graft source. This study is designed to estimate disease-free survival (DFS) at 1 year posttransplant. Since the goal is to estimate the DFS at a long-term time-point (1 year post-transplant), the design is a generalization of the Simon design. Rather than suspension of the trial for evaluation after stage 1, this design uses an optimal interim analysis for futility without suspension of accrual.

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.

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).

Biologic Abatement and Capturing Kids' Outcomes and Flare Frequency in Juvenile Spondyloarthritis (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.

Neuromodulation and Cognitive Training for Substance Use Disorders

The relapsing nature of Stimulant use disorder is a major obstacle to successful treatment. About 70% of those entering treatment will relapse within one year. To improve treatment outcome, new interventions targeting the underlying brain biomarkers of relapse vulnerability hold significant promise in reducing this critical public health problem. The overarching goal of this project is to expand the traditional expertise in non-invasive neuromodulation at the University of Minnesota towards developing novel paired-neuromodulation approaches using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) for new addiction treatments that support long-term abstinence. This study will allow us to investigate whether the pairing of dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) stimulation and cognitive training can lead to improved treatment outcomes as it pertains to executive functioning and maintenance of abstinence. This paired-neuromodulation approach can potentially be used as a therapeutic intervention to decrease relapse probability in addiction. The long term goal is to develop new addiction treatments that support long-term abstinence.

A Randomized Trial of Intra-Portal Alone Versus Intra- and Extra- Portal Transplantation of Pancreatic Islets After Total Pancreatectomy for Chronic Pancreatitis (iSite)

Chronic pancreatitis affects as many as 1 in every 2,500 persons and is associated with incapacitating pain, frequent hospitalization and risk of narcotic dependence. This is a debilitating disease with limited treatment options; afflicted patients are often young or middle aged adults. The health and economic costs of pancreatitis are great. One treatment for certain types of chronic pancreatitis is total pancreatectomy with islet autotransplantation (TPIAT). In this procedure, the patient’s pancreas is removed (eliminating the source of the pain) and the patient’s islets, which produce insulin and other important hormones, are harvested from the pancreas and transplanted into the liver thru the portal vein. This procedure is limited by the number of islets removed in the disease pancreas, and problems with the islets functioning normally in the liver. We propose a pilot study to evaluate outcomes when a portion of the islets are placed in an omental pouch (in fatty tissue of the abdomen) to evaluate safety and islet function using this alternative site.

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.

COG AALL1731 - A Phase 3 Trial Investigating Blinatumomab (IND# 117467, NSC# 765986) in Combination with Chemotherapy in Patients with Newly Diagnosed Standard Risk or Down syndrome B-Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B-ALL) and the Treatment of Patients with Localized B-Lymphoblastic Lymphoma (B-LLy)

This phase III trial studies how well blinatumomab works in combination with chemotherapy in treating patients (365 Days to 31 Years) with newly diagnosed, standard risk B-lymphoblastic leukemia or B-lymphoblastic lymphoma with or without Down syndrome. Monoclonal antibodies, such as blinatumomab, may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vincristine, dexamethasone, prednisone, prednisolone, pegaspargase, methotrexate, cytarabine, mercaptopurine, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and thioguanine, 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. Leucovorin decreases the toxic effects of methotrexate. Giving monoclonal antibody therapy with chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells. Giving blinatumomab and combination chemotherapy may work better then combination chemotherapy alone in treating patients with B-ALL. This trial also assigns patients into different chemotherapy treatment regimens based on risk (the chance of cancer returning after treatment). Treating patients with chemotherapy based on risk may help doctors decide which patients can best benefit from which chemotherapy treatment regimens.

HEALEY ALS Platform Trial

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).

PROmote weight loss in obese PAD patients to preVEnt mobility Loss: The PROVE Trial

More than 65% of people with lower extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD) are overweight or obese. Overweight or obese people with PAD have greater functional impairment and faster functional decline than normal weight people with PAD. Walking exercise is first line therapy to improve walking performance in PAD. However, our NHLBI-funded observational longitudinal study of functional decline in PAD showed that overweight and obese PAD participants who combined weight loss with walking exercise had significantly less functional decline than those who walked for exercise but did not lose weight. Therefore, we hypothesize that among people with PAD who are overweight or obese, a weight loss intervention combined with exercise will improve walking ability more than exercise alone. However, the effects of intentional weight loss in overweight or obese people with PAD are unknown and may not be beneficial if weight loss exacerbates PAD-related sarcopenia. Behavior change that achieves sustained weight loss is particularly challenging in older obese people with chronic disease. Therefore, among people with PAD and BMI>28 kg/m2, we will conduct a randomized clinical trial to test the hypothesis that a weight loss intervention combined with walking exercise achieves greater improvement in functional performance than exercise alone at 12-month follow-up.

Surgical Timing and Rehabilitation for Multiple Ligament Knee Injuries: A Multicenter Integrated Clinical Trial (Protocol # PRO16090503)

Combat and sports injuries as well as automobile accidents can result in complex knee injuries involving tears of two or more major ligaments. These are referred to as multiple ligament knee injuries (or knee dislocations). Other structures like nerves, blood vessels, tendons and bones may also be injured at the same time. Due to their severity, knee dislocations are difficult to treat and problems after surgery, such as poor healing, stiffness or looseness of the knee, persistent pain, and early arthritis, can be quite common. Experts agree that surgery is necessary after a knee dislocation, but they do not agree on when to perform surgery or when rehabilitation after surgery should be started. Early surgery for knee dislocations may result in better outcomes, but may also be associated with increased joint stiffness. However, delayed surgery may be associated with the knee being too loose. The best evidence for when to start rehabilitation is based on treatment of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in sports, where early post-op rehabilitation is the standard. However, unlike ACL surgery which typically replaces the ACL with a tendon graft, surgeons frequently sew torn ligaments back together after a knee dislocation. Therefore, rehabilitation typically involves protection of the knee by keeping weight off the leg and only allowing the knee to move a little for 6 weeks, which delays return to activity. This study is being conducted to determine when the best time to do surgery is and when to start rehabilitation after surgery for the treatment of a multiple ligament knee injury.

Theta Burst Stimulation for Headaches after Traumatic Brain Injury

The primary objective of this study is to investigate the safety and efficacy of theta burst stimulation (TBS) for the management of post-traumatic headaches to improve outcomes and quality of life for individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). To improve tolerability and logistical burden, we have developed a novel design whereby participants will receive three doses of TBS on alternate days of the week. This design will allow us to assess efficacy while leveraging an accelerated treatment course (nine stimulation sessions per week). We have three specific aims: Specific Aim 1. To determine the efficacy and safety of TBS for the treatment of post-traumatic headache among individuals who have sustained a mild TBI. Hypothesis 1a: TBS will be safe, well-tolerated, and reduce the number of headache days. Hypothesis 1b: TBS will improve function and quality of life outcomes. Specific Aim 2: To determine the efficacy and safety of an accelerated time-course of TBS for the management of post-traumatic headache. Hypothesis 2a: The accelerated-time course will be safe, welltolerated, and improve quality of life outcomes. Hypothesis 2b: The accelerated time-course will produce greater and faster improvement in headache symptoms than that reported in the literature for standard repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) protocols. Specific Aim 3: To examine the durability of treatment response to accelerated TBS during a one-month observational period. Hypothesis 3: Accelerated TBS will result in enduring treatment response of posttraumatic headache symptoms over the follow-up period.

A community-based exercise program to improve walking outcomes in patients with peripheral artery disease

Patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) have significant walking impairment and a decreased quality of life. This is in part due to the classic symptom of PAD called claudication. Patients describe claudication as pain, aching, and cramping in the leg muscles during walking that goes away with rest. Walking exercise in supervised hospital settings is a primary therapy, however, these programs are unavailable due to a number of issues (e.g., no reimburesement, proximity to clinics). Programs of exercise in community settings are ineffective, largely due to primarily advice given by providers for patients to go home and walk. Thus, successful community-based walking exercise programs for PAD are needed. We will test the hypothesis that PAD patients randomized to an exercise program in the community setting incorporating training, monitoring, and coaching (TMC) components commonly used in supervised exercise programs will improve peak walking time (PWT) (the length of time a patient can walk on a graded treadmill) compared with control group patients who only receive the standard of care (upfront advice to walk). Secondary hypotheses include a significant improvement in patient perceived quality of life and a significant increase in volume of physical activity for patients who complete community-based walking exercise when compared with controls. Exploratory hypotheses include an improvement in PWT for patients who receive community exercise in addition to revascularization (a procedure that opens up the arteries of the legs; a standard treatment composed of endovascular therapy or open surgery for PAD provided separately from this study). Specifically, we will explore 1) patients receiving a combination of endovascular therapy (e.g., stenting, angioplasty) and community-based walking exercise, 2) open surgery and community-based walking exercise and compare outcomes to 3) patients who do not receive endovascular therapy or open intervention regardless of randomization to exercise or control groups.
