Feasibility Study of the Intravascular Ventricular Assist System (iVAS)

This is a single-arm, non-randomized study designed to assess the preliminary safety and clinical performance of the NuPulseCV iVAS. This study will assess potential benefits to patients who have NYHA Class III and IV advanced heart failure and require additional circulatory support. Data obtained from the study will be used to make device modifications, refine the criteria for defining the target population, and inform the design of a future clinical trial suitable for assessing longer-term use in heart failure patients.

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.

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.

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.

Enhanced Spatial Targeting in ECT Utilizing Focally Electrically-administered Seizure Therapy (FEAST)

Twenty ECT eligible TRD patients will receive a course of FEAST with up to 15 sessions (including titration) in an open trial design. Sessions 2,3 and 4 will be cross-randomized between ‘typical’ FEAST electrode configuration, the same electrode placement but a reversed polarity of current flow (RP FEAST) and the reverse electrode configuration FEAST (RC FEAST). Electrophysiological markers of the induced seizure will be captured with a 6-lead EEG placed over bilateral frontal, temporal and parietal lobes.

A Study to Investigate Blinatumomab in Combination With Chemotherapy in Patients With Newly Diagnosed B-Lymphoblastic Leukemia

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.

SpHincterotomy for Acute Recurrent Pancreatitis (SHARP) Trial (SHARP)

This is a sham-controlled, single blinded with a blinded outcome assessment, multi-center, randomized clinical trial of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with minor papilla endoscopic sphincterotomy (miES) for the treatment of recurrent acute pancreatitis (RAP) with pancreas divisum. ERCP with miES is often offered in clinical practice to patients with RAP, pancreas divisum, and no other clear risk factors for their acute pancreatitis episodes. We hypothesize that obstruction at the level of the minor papilla is one cause of RAP in pancreas divisum; miES will relieve the obstruction, thereby reducing the risk of a recurrent attack(s) of acute pancreatitis.

Inclusion Criteria:

• Patient must consent to be in the study and must have signed and dated an approved consent form.
• >18 years
• Two or more episodes of acute pancreatitis, with each episode meeting two of the following three criteria:
• abdominal pain consistent with acute pancreatitis (acute onset of a persistent, severe, epigastric pain often radiating to the back)
• serum lipase activity (or amylase activity) at least three times greater than the upper limit of normal
• characteristic findings of acute pancreatitis on CECT, MRI or transabdominal ultrasonography
• At least one episode of acute pancreatitis within 24 months of enrollment
• Pancreas divisum confirmed by prior MRCP that is reviewed by an abdominal radiologist at the recruiting site.
• By physician assessment, there is no certain explanation for recurrent acute pancreatitis.
• Subjects must be able to fully understand and participate in all aspects of the study, including completion of questionnaires and telephone interviews, in the opinion of the clinical investigator
Exclusion Criteria:

• Prior minor papilla therapy (endoscopic or surgical)
• Calcific chronic pancreatitis, defined as parenchymal or ductal calcifications identified on computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging scan that is reviewed by an expert radiologist at the recruiting site.
• Main pancreatic duct stricture*

• Presence of a local complication from acute pancreatitis which requires pancreatogram
• Regular use of opioid medication for abdominal pain for the past three months
• Medication as the etiology for acute pancreatitis by physician assessment

Hide eligibility criteria
Inclusion Criteria:

• Have diagnosis of prostate cancer and have received treatment with GnRH agonist or antagonist therapy for at least 1 month prior to enrollment.
• Willing and able to complete survey questionnaires in English without assistance through the duration of the study. This stipulation is in place because not all of the proposed quality of life or cognitive tests are available or validated in other languages.
• Age ≥ 18 years.
• Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document written in English that is approved by an institutional review board.
• Have either newly diagnosed metastatic hormone sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC) or castration-resistant metastatic prostate cancer (mCRPC) and eligible to undergo treatment with abiraterone acetate (mHSPC or mCRPC) or enzalutamide (mCRPC)
• Patients may have received the following prior AR directed therapy prior to enrollment: bicalutamide, ketoconazole. Prior to enrollment, patients may have received treatment with abiraterone acetate or enzalutamide for no more than 14 days before completing baseline studies.
• Patients may have received chemotherapy for hormone-sensitive metastatic prostate cancer only, but it must not have lasted for more than 6 months. At least 12 months must have elapsed since completion of chemotherapy.
• Patients may have received prior definitive radiation therapy or surgery. At least 60 days must have elapsed since completion of definitive radiation therapy or surgery and patient must have only grade 2 or less adverse effects at the time of registration. Enrollment during palliative radiation of ≤ 10 days, or radiation of ≤ 10 days during the duration of the study is allowed.
• Patients must be able to take oral medication.
Exclusion Criteria:

• Prior treatment with enzalutamide or abiraterone acetate for > 14 days prior to enrollment and completion of baseline tests.
• Receipt of chemotherapy for prostate or other cancer within the past 12 months with residual cognitive deficits, or receipt of chemotherapy for mCRPC. Patients/physicians planning treatment with chemotherapy during the 12 month period of the investigation are also ineligible.
• History of cognitive impairment or dysfunction, including a history of dementia, Alzheimer's disease, stroke with residual cognitive deficits, cognitive dysfunction related to alcohol or substance abuse, or cognitive dysfunction related to prior treatment for any cancer.
• Patients with a seizure history, history of recurrent falls, or known brain metastases are excluded from this clinical trial because of their poor prognosis and because of their heightened risk of seizure or progressive cognitive and/or neurologic dysfunction that would confound the evaluation.
• Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, uncontrolled diabetes, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association Class III and IV heart failure), unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations/substance abuse that would limit compliance with study requirements.
• Patients with a "currently active" second malignancy other than non-melanoma skin cancers are not eligible. Patients are not considered to have a "currently active" malignancy if they have completed all therapy and are now considered without evidence of disease for 1 year. Patients with cognitive dysfunction related to treatment of another malignancy, including a history of "chemo-brain", are ineligible.
• Patients taking psychotropic medications or illicit drugs that may alter cognition, concentration, or behavior. Appropriate treatment by a licensed provider with medications for depression or anxiety, including but not limited to SSRIs, SNRIs, and standard dose benzodiazepines at a stable dose, is permitted
