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.

MT2018-46: Longterm Follow-up of Subjects with Cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy who were Treated with Lenti-D Drug Product

This is a multi-center, long-term safety and efficacy follow-up study for subjects with cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy (CALD) who have received Lenti-D Drug Product in parent clinical studies. Lenti-D Drug Product is defined as an autologous CD34+ cell-enriched population that contains cells transduced with Lenti-D lentiviral vector encoding the human adrenoleukodystrophy protein. In parent studies, male subjects with CALD are infused on a single occasion with Lenti-D Drug Product, and then followed for 24 (±1) month for safety and efficacy. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) recommend long-term follow-up for subjects treated with gene therapy drug products to monitor for selected adverse events (AEs), as well as durability of clinical response. Therefore, after subjects have completed the parent clinical studies, they will be asked to participate in a long-term follow-up Study LTF-304, in which they will be followed every 6 months through 5 years post-drug product infusion, and then annually through 15 years post-drug product infusion. Safety evaluations will include documentation of drug product-related AEs, all serious adverse events (SAEs) regardless of attribution to the drug product, CALD-related ≥Grade 2 AEs, and integration site analysis for the detection of clonal dominance through 15 years post drug product infusion, as well as archiving for RCL testing through 5 years post‑drug product infusion. Efficacy evaluations will include CALD disease-specific assessments, primarily major functional disabilities and brain MRI, with additional exploratory assessments for change in Loes score, Loes pattern, neurologic function score (NFS), very long chain fatty acids (VLCFA), intelligence quotient (IQ), and health related quality of life (HRQoL) assessment. To monitor pharmacodynamics, vector copy number in peripheral blood (PB VCN; vector copies per diploid genome [c/dg]) and transgenic protein expression of adrenoleukodystrophy protein (ALDP) in peripheral blood will be measured at designated study visits. There is no designated Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) for Study LTF-304; however, the review of safety data for this study, including AEs, SAEs and relevant laboratory values, may be performed by the DMC convened for the parent study in which the subject(s) originally participated.

Inclusion Criteria:

• Patients must have had histologic verification of neuroblastoma or ganglioneuroblastoma or demonstration of neuroblastoma cells in the bone marrow with elevated urinary catecholamines (i.e. > 2 x upper limit of normal [ULN]), at the time of initial diagnosis.
• For the purposes of this study, aggressive multidrug chemotherapy is defined as chemotherapy including 2 or more agents that must include an alkylating agent and a platinum-containing compound as intended to treat high-risk disease. The doses of chemotherapy must be comparable to those used in frontline high-risk neuroblastoma therapies (examples include A3973, ANBL0532, ANBL09P1, ANBL12P1, and ANBL1531). Patients must have ONE of the following:
• First episode of recurrent high-risk disease following completion of aggressive multi-drug frontline high-risk therapy.
• First episode of progressive high-risk disease during aggressive multi-drug frontline therapy.
• Primary resistant/refractory disease (less than partial response by International Neuroblastoma Response Criteria [INRC]) detected at the conclusion of at least 4 cycles of aggressive multidrug induction chemotherapy on or according to a high-risk neuroblastoma protocol (examples include A3973, ANBL0532, ANBL09P1, ANBL12P1, ANBL1531, etc.).
• Patients must have at least ONE of the following at the time of enrollment:
• Measurable tumor on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scan. Measurable is defined as >= 10 mm in at least one dimension on spiral/helical CT that is metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) avid or demonstrates increased fludeoxyglucose F-18 (FDG) uptake on positron emission tomography (PET) scan.
• MIBG-avid lesion detected on MIBG scan with positive uptake at a minimum of one site. This site must represent disease recurrence after completion of therapy, progressive disease on therapy, or refractory disease during induction.
• Patients with resistant/refractory soft tissue disease that is not MIBG avid or does not demonstrate increased FDG uptake on PET scan must undergo biopsy to document the presence of viable neuroblastoma. Biopsy is not required for patients who have a new site of soft tissue disease (radiographic evidence of disease progression) regardless of whether progression occurs while receiving therapy or after completion of therapy.
• Patients with bone marrow disease only will be eligible if they have more than 5% disease involvement (documented neuroblastoma cells) in at least one sample from bilateral bone marrow biopsies.
• Note: Patients with elevated catecholamines (i.e. > 2 x ULN) only are NOT eligible for this study.
• Patients must have a performance status corresponding to Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) scores of 0, 1 or 2. Use Karnofsky for patients > 16 years of age and Lansky for patients =< 16 years of age.
• Primary refractory/resistant patients must have received at least 4 cycles of frontline high-risk chemotherapy. Frontline therapy may also have included surgery, chemotherapy, autologous stem cell transplantation (SCT) +/- MIBG, immunotherapy, radiotherapy, and retinoids but must NOT have received second line therapy for resistant/refractory, relapsed, or progressive disease. Patients who received intensified therapy for poor induction response or refractory disease (e.g. MIBG) will be considered to have received second line therapy and will not be eligible.
• At least 14 days must have elapsed since completion of myelosuppressive therapy.
• Anti-cancer agents not known to be myelosuppressive (e.g. not associated with reduced platelet or absolute neutrophil count [ANC] counts): >= 7 days after the last dose of agent.
• Antibodies: >= 21 days must have elapsed from infusion of last dose of antibody, and toxicity related to prior antibody therapy must be recovered to grade =< 1.
• No interim time prior to study entry is required following prior radiation therapy (RT) for non-target lesions. However, patients must not have received radiation for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to study entry at the site of any lesion that will be identified as a target lesion to measure tumor response. Lesions that have been previously radiated cannot be used as target lesions unless there is radiographic evidence of progression at the site following radiation or a biopsy done following radiation shows viable neuroblastoma. Palliative radiation while on study is not permitted.

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.

A Phase I/II, Multicenter, Open-Label, Single-Dose, Dose-Ranging Study to Assess the Safety and Tolerability of ST-920, a rAAV2/6 Human Alpha Galactosidase A Gene Therapy, in Subjects with Fabry Disease

The proposed study uses a recombinant AAV2/6 vector encoding the cDNA for human α-Gal A (ST-920). The α-Gal A produced by this cDNA has an identical amino acid sequence to the native enzyme, and also to Fabrazyme® (agalsidase beta or equivalent), a clinically approved recombinant protein product. The ST-920 construct encodes a liver-specific promoter, the human α-1-antitrypsin (hAAT) promoter and includes liver-specific regulatory elements. In addition, rAAV2/6 exhibits liver tropism thus providing the potential for long-term hepatic production of α-Gal A in Fabry disease subjects. Studies of ST-920 in a Fabry disease mouse model administered rAAV2/6 encoding hGLA cDNA by intravenous (IV) injection show generation of therapeutic circulating levels of α-Gal A. The one-time treatment with ST-920 minimizes the risk of infusion--related reactions. The goal of ST-920 is to provide stable, long-term production of α-Gal A at therapeutic levels in subjects with Fabry disease. The constant production of α-Gal A in humans should, importantly, enable reduction and potentially clearance of Fabry disease substrates Gb3 and lyso-Gb3.

A 5-year Longitudinal Observational Study of Patients Undergoing Therapy for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (TARGET-IBD)

This is a 5-year, longitudinal, observational study of adult and pediatric patients (age 2 and above) undergoing IBD therapy designed to specifically address important clinical questions that remain incompletely answered from registration trials. Patients being prescribed medical therapy for IBD outside of a clinical trial will be eligible for enrollment. Treatment algorithms will follow each site’s local standard of care and no specific treatments, assessments, and or laboratory tests will be dictated by enrollment in TARGET-IBD. Enrolled patients will consent to the possibility of up to 3 years of retrospective, redacted medical record collection as well as prospective collection for up to 5 years. Medical records will include but will not be limited to: records of hospitalizations, laboratory reports, clinic notes, telephone contact reports, medication lists, reasons for medication initiation and/or discontinuation, endoscopy reports, biopsy results, and imaging results. Patients will also be asked to provide a blood sample for biomarker, anti-drug antibody, and DNA assays and complete patient reported outcome (PRO) surveys, although participation in these two portions of the study is not mandatory for study participation. Consent for linkage of patient health information (PHI) to external healthcare databases (such as patient support programs) will also be requested as an optional portion of the study.

The effect of inflammation and damage to lymph node structures on durable protective immunity following vaccination

Are you planning to receive the yellow fever vaccine for upcoming travel? This study may be for you! How well a vaccine works sometimes varies by geography, with good protection in one part of the world and poor protection in others. In this research study, the research team is investigating if this is due to different infections in communities, which could affect parts of the immune system that are needed for a good response to a vaccine. Healthy participants who receive the yellow fever vaccine in Uganda and Minnesota will have their levels of infections (from viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, and helminths [a type of parasitic worm]) compared. This will help us learn more about relationships between these infections, how they affect immune systems, and how that affects the body’s response to a vaccine.

Use of a multiplexed molecular biomarker test Cxbladder, in Real World decision making to provide Clinical Utility Using a Randomized Design

Objective Statement To evaluate the clinical utility associated with the integration of Cxbladder into the evaluation of subjects presenting with hematuria for evaluation of urothelial carcinoma (UC) without compromising detection of UC. Primary Objective 1. To evaluate the increase in utility (or sub-cohorts) under evaluation, without compromising detection of UC, defined by the reduction in; i. cystoscopy procedures when Cxbladder is used in the evaluation of hematuria subjects when compared with the standard of care (SOC). (The gold standard for determination of a confirmed clinical diagnosis is cystoscopy confirmed by pathology, plus imaging or any follow-up investigations relating to the visit).

HEALEY ALS Platform Trial - Master Protocol

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).

Determining the Effectiveness of early Intensive Versus Escalation approaches for the treatment of Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (DELIVER-MS) (DELIVER-MS)

The DELIVER-MS study seeks to answer the important question: Does early treatment with highly effective DMT improve the prognosis for people with MS? This is an area of significant controversy and no data currently exist to guide treatment choices for patients and clinicians. The study results will help guide overall treatment philosophy and will be applicable not only to a wide range of existing therapies but also to new therapies, meeting a significant unmet need in patient decision making and aiding the decision for medication approval by third parties.
