Oxidative Stress and Inflammatory Biomarkers in Gaucher Disease

Gaucher disease is the most common lysosomal storage disorder due to a mutation in the lysosomal enzyme, glucocerebrosidase. There is increasing evidence that oxidative stress and/or inflammation contribute to the pathophysiology. In order to evaluate oxidative stress and/or inflammation in patients with Gaucher disease, we will analyze a series of blood biomarkers and correlate them with currently used diagnostic biomarkers of this condition. We will determine oxidative stress and/or inflammation related biomarkers in whole blood and/or plasma in adult subjects with Gaucher disease. Fifteen milliliter blood sample will be collected during three independent visits over a period of approximately 3 months. These samples will be processed to separate plasma from red blood cells and frozen until assays are performed. Standardized immunoassay methods and LC/MS based methods will be adopted to assay a series of biomarkers in these samples. These data will be correlated with currently used diagnostic biomarkers.

Role of Oxidative Stress and Inflammation in Type 1 Gaucher Disease (GD1): Potential Use of Antioxidant/Anti-inflammatory Medications

The purpose of this study is to measure levels of blood and brain chemicals related to oxidative stress and inflammation in healthy volunteers and individuals with Type 1 Gaucher disease (GD1) to see if these levels are altered by GD1. We will also examine if there is a change in these blood and brain chemicals after participants begin taking oral N-acetylcysteine (NAC), which is available both as a prescription medication and a natural product that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

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.

MT2015-29 : Myeloablative Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation Using a Related or Adult Unrelated Donor for the Treatment of Hematological Disorders

The primary research element is to determine whether a graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis regimen of post-transplant cyclophosphamide, tacrolimus and MMF will reduce the likelihood of chronic GVHD in patients receiving a standard hematopoietic myeloablative stem cell transplant. The treatment related components of this protocol are established clinical practices and are considered non-investigational. The primary endpoint is cumulative incidence of chronic GVHD requiring systemic immunosuppressive treatment at 1 year post-transplant.

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.

Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Safety Profile of Understudied Drugs Administered to Children per Standard of Care / (POPS): NICHD-2019-POP02 (including COVID-19 drugs) (POPS or POP02)

The majority of drugs administered to children are used off label, and PK studies to define appropriate dosing are lacking across pediatric age groups and special populations of children. Challenges associated with clinical trials in children limit the ability to conduct PK and dosing trials in this population. Studies capitalizing on standard-of-care procedures have proven successful in characterizing the PK of drugs used in children. The purpose of this study is to characterize the PK of understudied drugs administered to children per SOC as prescribed by their treating provider. This study will serve as a tool to better understand drug exposure in children receiving drugs per SOC. The data collected through this initiative will provide valuable PK and dosing information for drugs in different pediatric age groups as well as special populations of children, such as premature infants, critically ill children receiving ECMO or CRRT, children with Down syndrome and children with obesity, for which dosing may vary due to altered PK. In addition, the data collected in this study will serve as preliminary data to design and plan the best and most efficacious BPCA trials, proof-of-concept studies associated with biomarkers, and data to support applications for extramural funding. All of the drugs studied in this protocol are used as standard of care in children and are approved in adults.
