Comparative Effectiveness Research Trial for Antidepressant Incomplete and Non-responders With TRD (ASCERTAINTRD)

This is a multi-site, randomized, open-label, effectiveness trial comparing three treatment arms for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) patients with TRD who are currently on ongoing, stable and adequate antidepressant therapy (ADT). Adequate ADT is defined as a therapeutically sufficient dose for a sufficient treatment period, which would be expected to be effective as listed in the MGH Antidepressant Treatment Response Questionnaire (ATRQ). Patients will be randomized in a 1:1:1 fashion to one of three open-label treatment arms: a) aripiprazole augmentation, b) rTMS augmentation, and c) switching to venlafaxine XR or Duloxetine.

Expanded Access Study of Fenretinide Lym-X-Sorb Plus Ketoconazole in Neuroblastoma

Currently there is no known effective treatment for recurrent/resistant neuroblastoma. Fenretinide is an anticancer agent that may work differently than standard chemotherapy medicines. It may cause the buildup of wax-like substances in neuroblastoma cancer cells, called "ceramides" or other chemicals, called 'reactive oxygen species'. In laboratory studies it was found that if too much ceramide or reactive oxygen species build up in neuroblastoma cells, they may die. In addition, researchers are testing to see if a drug called ketoconazole, commonly used to treat fungus infections, can increase fenretinide levels in the body by interfering with the body's ability to break down fenretinide. This study is being done: 1) to allow patients with recurrent/refractory neuroblastoma patients who would otherwise not be able to access fenretinide/LXS oral powder for treatment to do so; 2) to further describe the side effects of fenretinide and ketoconazole when given by mouth for seven days every three weeks; 3) to determine if a patient's tumor gets smaller after treatment with fenretinide oral powder plus ketoconazole or fenretinide oral powder alone.

Pembrolizumab in Anaplastic/Undifferentiated Thyroid Cancer

This study is being done because there are currently no approved and no commonly working targeted therapies in anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC). This is an area of urgent need for patients, not just for approved treatments but also rationally-designed clinical trials designed specifically for ATC. Patients diagnosed with anaplastic thyroid cancer have a very high likelihood of dying because of their disease. As such there is a clear need for improving therapy for ATC.

Standardized Treatment of Pulmonary Exacerbations II (STOP2)

Cystic fibrosis (CF), a life-shortening genetic disease, is marked by acute episodes during which symptoms of lung infection increase and lung function decreases. These pulmonary exacerbations are treated with varying antibiotics for varying time periods based on needs determined by individual patients, their families, and the health care providers. Cystic fibrosis pulmonary guidelines for the treatment of pulmonary exacerbation published by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) in 2009 provided recommendations for treatment and also identified key questions for which additional studies were needed. A strong desire among clinicians to reduce treatment durations (and reduce cost, inconvenience, and potential toxicities) is in conflict with belief that patients not responding robustly to treatment might benefit from extending treatment. This randomized, controlled, open-label study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of differing durations of IV treatment, given in the hospital or at home for a pulmonary exacerbation in adult patients with CF.

Safety and Efficacy of a Switch to MK-1439A in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV-1)-Infected Participants Virologically Suppressed on an Anti-retroviral Regimen in Combination With Two Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors (MK-1439A-024) (DRIVE-SHIFT)

The study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of a switch to MK-1439A (MK-1439 [doravirine] plus lamivudine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate) in HIV-1-infected participants virologically suppressed on a protocol-specified antiretroviral regimen. The primary hypothesis is that a switch to MK-1439A will be non-inferior to continuation of the regimen at Screening for 24 weeks, as assessed by the proportion of participants maintaining HIV-1 ribonucleic acid (RNA) <50 copies/mL. The Base Study will last up to 50 weeks.

Radiofrequency and Hybrid Fractional Laser for Vaginal Rejuvenation

This is a single-center, randomized, prospective study designed to evaluate the efficacy of radiofrequency and hybrid fractional laser for vaginal rejuvenation. 100 subjects will undergo a three-part treatment of the vulvovaginal area using ThermiVa RF unit, ThermiVa RF unit placebo, DiVa HFL unit, or DiVa HFL unit placebo. These treatments will be spaced one month apart and last about 25 minutes each. Each subject will be screened, undergo testing at baseline, and will be followed conservatively with no further therapy until they reach 6 months after the initiation of the designated treatment. At that time, all subjects will undergo subjective and objective testing. Those in the treatment group will be followed to 9 and 12 months after the initiation of treatment with appropriate analysis. Those in the placebo group will have completed the study at this time and will be provided treatment, should they choose. The primary outcome measure is improvement in vulvovaginal symptoms measured by the validated Vulvovaginal Symptoms Questionnaire. Data obtained from each investigation will be recorded in a password-protected digital spreadsheet, and descriptive statistics will be obtained.

Study of Nivolumab in Combination With Gemcitabine/Cisplatin or Ipilimumab for Patients With Advanced Unresectable Biliary Tract Cancer

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the effect of investigational drug nivolumab in combination with either gemcitabine/cisplatin chemotherapy, or in combination with another investigational agent ipilimumab in patients with advanced unresectable biliary tract cancer. Gemcitabine/cisplatin is the standard of care treatment for biliary tract cancer. Nivolumab and ipilimumab are types of immunotherapy. Immunotherapy works by encouraging the body's own immune system to attack the cancer cells. Nivolumab (Opdivo) is FDA approved for the treatment of several cancers including metastatic melanoma, advanced lung, kidney, head & neck and bladder cancer. The combination of nivolumab and ipilimumab (Yervoy) is FDA approved for metastatic melanoma.
