RARE-OB-16: Rare CFTR Mutation Cell Collection Protocol (RARE) (RARE)

We are doing the RARE study to learn more about Cystic Fibrosis (CF). CF is caused by mutations in a gene that produces a protein called the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). In people with CF, the CFTR does not function correctly. Medications are being developed to help the CFTR function better, but those medications mostly benefit people with common CFTR mutations. There are more than 1,900 mutations of the CF gene. Some of these mutations are rare and found only in a few people. The goal of this research study is to collect specimens (blood, nasal cells, rectal cells) from people with rare CFTR mutations. Another purpose of this study is to create induced pluripotent stem cells or iPS cells. “Pluripotent” stem cells are cells that can be changed into almost any cell type of the body (such as lung or intestine). They can be kept alive and stored indefinitely. There are different kinds of pluripotent stem cells. Inducted pluripotent stem cells can be created from many different kinds of specimens (such as blood, nasal cells, rectal cells). This is different from embryonic stem cells, which can only be derived from embryos. The specimens collected during this study and iPS cells created from them will be stored for use in future research to learn more about CF and study the effect of new medications. This could identify new medications that may help people with rare CFTR mutations.

MT2018-36 INSPIRE: A Multicenter Randomized Controlled Trial integrating health informatics in a scalable stepped care self-management program for survivors after hematopoietic cell transplantation (INSPIRE)

This study proposes that predictable health surveillance and unmet emotional needs of adult hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) survivors can be improved through a centralized, cost and resource-sparing, national program that optimizes health informatics and provides online expertise and telehealth selfmanagement stepped care when necessary. If successful, this project would provide long-term HCT survivors and their providers with a patient-centered program to facilitate managing their emotional and health care needs. Long-term HCT survivors do not receive adequate care for their unique health and emotional needs due to lack of knowledge and resources to manage these needs in their home communities, although many of these needs have been well defined. Lack of access to care increases premature morbidity and mortality in HCT survivors particularly for cardiovascular and metabolic disease (cardiometabolic) and subsequent malignancies.

EVALUATION OF PATIENT OUTCOMES FROM THE KIDNEY ALLOGRAFT OUTCOMES ALLOSURE REGISTRY (KOAR) (KOAR)

AlloSure KOAR will recruit eligible kidney recipients who are undergoing AlloSure testing as part of their clinical care to participate in a registry. Patient consent will permit collection and use of data from the patient EMR for entry into the AlloSure database. We will be collecting additional data and outcomes to follow the clinical inquiry and use of AlloSure testing. The AlloSure test has been approved for Medicare coverage for clinical use when a physician determines there is a need to assess the probability of allograft rejection in kidney transplant recipients. The DART study suggests that use of the non-invasive AlloSure test to measure donorderived cell-free DNA (dd-cfDNA) can be used to discriminate active rejection in a renal transplant recipient. Use of the test may reduce invasive percutaneous renal biopsy procedures among patients with a suspicion of rejection. Patients may begin use of the AlloSure test 2 weeks following transplantation. The recommended AlloSure testing schedule is at months 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, and 12 post-transplant and quarterly in year 2 and year 3 post-transplant. AlloSure testing may also be performed when there is clinical suspicion of rejection or other cause of instability in the allograft to inform on the need for a clinically indicated biopsy. Patients and clinicians may choose to use AlloSure testing as a replacement or pre-test for planned surveillance biopsies to inform on the decision to perform a surveillance biopsy, but not the one-year surveillance biopsy used to generate the primary endpoint data. This is a multicenter, non-blinded, prospective observational cohort study of 1000 patients enrolled in an AlloSure testing registry, including 300 patients at centers with planned renal surveillance biopsies at 12 months post-transplantation. The other 700 patients will be from centers that do not perform protocol surveillance biopsies. Outcomes in this sub-cohort, which represents the majority of the intended use population in the U.S., will be compared to the outcomes of the test and control cohorts. A matched control cohort of 300 patients will be retrospectively selected from the subset of centers providing the test cohort patients who have planned surveillance biopsies at 12 months post-transplantation.

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.

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.

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.

Artificial Urinary Sphincter Clinical Outcomes (AUSCO)

The study objective is to evaluate the AMS 800 Artificial Urinary Sphincter™ (AUS) in men with primary stress urinary incontinence as measured by pad weight tests. The AMS 800 Artificial Urinary Sphincter is used to treat urinary incontinence due to reduced outlet resistance (intrinsic sphincter deficiency) following prostate surgery. Treatment success defined as ≥ 50% reduction in 24-hour pad weight test from baseline at 12 months post device activation.
