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?

Research Into Visual Endpoints and RB Health Outcomes After Treatment (RIVERBOAT)

This is a cross-sectional, non-therapeutic study in a cohort of retinoblastoma patients. The study will estimate the prevalence of specific late effects and SMN, assess for predictors of these late effects and SMN, and identify factors predictive of these late effects and SMN, and identify factors predictive of decreased HRQoL.

Statins In Intracerbral Hemorrhage

This is a multi-center, pragmatic, prospective, randomized, open-label, and blinded end-point assessment (PROBE) clinical trial. A total of 1,456 patients presenting within 7 days of a spontaneous lobar ICH while taking statins will be randomized to one of two treatment strategies: discontinuation vs. continuation (restarting) of statin therapy (using the same agent and dose that they were using at ICH onset). Randomization will take into account: clinical site, statin dose and indication (primary vs. secondary prevention), current use or intent-to-use oral anticoagulants (OAC) and/or antiplatelets in the long-term post-ICH, and severity of ICH upon presentation as assessed by baseline ICH volume. Participating subjects will undergo baseline testing for APOE genotype and will be followed for 24 months to assess for the occurrence of recurrent symptomatic ICH or MACCE during the follow-up period.

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.

COG APAL2020SC - Pediatric Acute Leukemia (PedAL) Screening Trial Developing New Therapies for Relapsed Leukemias

This study aims to use clinical and biological characteristics of acute leukemias to screen for patient eligibility for available pediatric leukemia sub-trials. Testing bone marrow and blood from patients with leukemia that has come back after treatment or is difficult to treat may provide information about the patient's leukemia that is important when deciding how to best treat it, and may help doctors find better ways to diagnose and treat leukemia in children, adolescents, and young adults (0-<22 years old).

State Representation in Early Psychosis (STEP)

Our Center will focus on the unifying hypothesis that processes underlying state representation dysfunction are relevant to psychosis, providing a window into pathophysiologic heterogeneity and precision treatment. Our Center will study three species (nonhuman primates, mice, and humans) using eight methodologies (genetic manipulations, slice physiology, ensemble recordings, LFP, behavior, EEG, fMRI, cognitive training). We will use a central computational perspective to translate and integrate across species and methodologies: Changes in neural information processing that affect parameters underlying attractor dynamics and influence state representation processes. Such changes create observable effects in behavior and neurophysiology, which we will study through the lens of attractor network models to inform our understanding of pathophysiologic heterogeneity, clinical trajectories, and precision treatment.

COG ANBL1232 - Utilizing Response- and Biology-Based Risk Factors to Guide Therapy in Patients with Non-High- Risk Neuroblastoma

This phase III trial studies how well response and biology-based risk factor-guided therapy works in treating younger patients with non-high risk neuroblastoma. Sometimes a tumor may not need treatment until it progresses. In this case, observation may be sufficient. Measuring biomarkers in tumor cells may help plan when effective treatment is necessary and what the best treatment is. Response and biology-based risk factor-guided therapy may be effective in treating patients with non-high risk neuroblastoma and may help to avoid some of the risks and side effects related to standard treatment.

HEM-POWR: Observational Study Evaluating Effectiveness and Safety of Real-World Treatment with Damoctocog alfa pegol in Previously Treated Patients with Hemophilia A (HEM-POWR)

Multinational, open-label, prospective, non-interventional, multicenter, cohort study. The objectives of this study are to assess the effectiveness and long term safety of prophylaxis with damoctocog alfa pegol in the real-world setting through the collection of total bleeding events and analysis of the annualized bleeding rate (ABR) in the different prophylaxis regimens (following approved local label or any other regimen prescribed by the physician as part of normal clinical practice) in patients with hemophilia A. The analyses will be stratified, based on severity of hemophilia, severity of patient bleeding profile, disease characteristics, prophylaxis regimen, age, and time on treatment (i.e., damoctocog alfa pegol-naive or not).

Clinical Study of Cannabidiol in Children and Adolescents With Fragile X Syndrome (RECONNECT)

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple-center study, to assess the efficacy and safety of CBD administered as ZYN002, a transdermal gel, for the treatment of children and adolescent patients with FXS. Qualified male and female patients with FXS will enter a two-week single-blind placebo lead-in period. Following the placebo lead-in, patients meeting randomization criteria will receive double-blind treatment for 16 weeks.
