Negative Pressure Wound Therapy as a Drug Delivery System (ADANPWT) (ADA NPWT)

The investigators plan a randomized clinical trial of 150 patients with infected diabetes-related lower extremity wounds to compare the clinical and economic effectiveness of negative pressure wound therapy with continuous irrigation and negative pressure wound therapy without irrigation. The investigators will enroll 150 patients from two centers: The University of Texas Southwestern University Hospital and Parkland Hospital. The investigators will screen and enroll patients with wounds in the inpatient setting. Patients will randomized to receive traditional NPWT or NPWT with continuous irrigation while they are hospitalized. The average hospitalization for patents that receive NPWT is 13.3 days. Patients that do not have their wound surgically closed during hospitalization will be discharged with negative pressure wound therapy without irrigation for up to a total of four weeks of therapy. After discharge from the hospital, subjects will be seen twice weekly by home health, and the investigators will evaluate subjects in clinic every 7 days (±7 days) for a total of 16-week period or until the wound heals.

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.

Inclusion Criteria for Enrollment (Screening):
• Subjects must be aged 2 weeks or older.
• Hospitalization due to signs and symptoms of influenza.
• Note: The decision for hospitalization will be made by the treating clinician. To be considered eligible, the hospitalization may either be an initial hospitalization, or a prolongation of a hospitalization due to a respiratory illness that was found to be from influenza. Influenza could be a component of a larger respiratory syndrome (i.e. COPD exacerbation thought to be triggered by influenza). However, respiratory syndromes that are not likely due to the virus should not be included (i.e. a subject that had mild influenza then developed pulmonary embolism and respiratory distress from the embolism).
• Study plasma available on-site or available within 24 hours after randomization.
• Not previously screened nor randomized in this study.
• Willingness to have blood and respiratory samples obtained and stored.
• Willingness to return for all required study visits and participate in study follow up. Inclusion Criteria for Randomization:
• Locally determined positive test for influenza A (by polymerase chain reaction [PCR], other nucleic acid testing, or by rapid Ag) from a specimen obtained less than or equal to 48 hours prior to randomization.
• Onset of illness less than or equal to 6 days before randomization, defined as when the subject first experienced at least one respiratory symptom or fever.
• Note: For subjects with chronic respiratory symptoms (chronic cough, or COPD with baseline dyspnea), the onset of symptoms is defined as the point when the symptoms changed during this illness). Hospitalized due to influenza, with anticipated hospitalization for more than 24 hours after randomization. Criteria for hospitalization will be up to the individual treating clinician.
• National Early Warning (NEW) or Pediatric Early Warning (PEW) score greater than or equal to 3 within 12 hours prior to randomization.
• ABO-compatible plasma available on-site or available within 24 hours after randomization. Exclusion Criteria for Randomization:
• Strong clinical evidence in the judgment of the site investigator that the etiology of illness is primarily bacterial super-infection in origin. Co-infection would be allowed, as there may be benefit to resolving influenza illness faster. Super-infection, where influenza illness occurred and is resolving, and new bacterial illness causing deterioration should be excluded (e.g., if the subject's respiratory infection is thought unlikely to benefit from additional antiviral therapy, this exclusion criteria would be met).
• Prior treatment with any anti-influenza investigational drug, anti-influenza investigational intravenous immune globulin (IVIG), or anti-influenza investigational plasma therapy within 30 days prior to screening. Other investigational drug therapies (non-influenza) and administration of plasma and/or IVIG for non-influenza reasons are allowed.
• History of allergic reaction to blood or plasma products (as judged by the site investigator).
• A pre-existing condition or use of a medication that, in the opinion of the site investigator, may place the individual at a substantially increased risk of thrombosis (e.g., cryoglobulinemia, severe refractory hypertriglyceridemia, or clinically significant monoclonal gammopathy). Prior IVIG use alone would not meet exclusion criteria, but the investigator should consider the potential for a hyper-coagulable state.
• Subjects who, in the judgment of the site investigator, will be unlikely to comply with the requirements of this protocol, including being uncontactable following discharge from hospital.
• Medical conditions for which receipt of 500-600 mL (or pediatric equivalent) of intravenous fluid may be dangerous to the subject (e.g., decompensated congestive heart failure).

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.

Brentuximab Vedotin and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Children and Young Adults With Stage IIB or Stage IIIB-IVB Hodgkin Lymphoma

This randomized phase III trial studies brentuximab vedotin and combination chemotherapy to see how well they work compared to combination chemotherapy alone in treating children and young adults with stage IIB or stage IIIB-IVB Hodgkin lymphoma. Combinations of biological substances in brentuximab vedotin may be able to carry cancer-killing substances directly to Hodgkin lymphoma cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, bleomycin sulfate, vincristine sulfate, etoposide, prednisone, and cyclophosphamide, 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. It is not yet known if combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without brentuximab vedotin in treating Hodgkin lymphoma.

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.

A Multicenter Clinical Trial of Allopurinol to Prevent Kidney Function Loss in Type 1 Diabetes

Despite improvements during the past 20 years in blood glucose and blood pressure control, diabetic kidney disease remains one of the most important causes of health problems in patients with diabetes. Novel treatments to complement blood glucose and blood pressure control are urgently needed. The goal of this study is to see whether a medication called allopurinol may help prevent loss of kidney function among people with type 1 diabetes. Allopurinol has been used for many years to decrease high blood uric acid and treat gout - a disease characterized by arthritis, especially of the foot joints. There is evidence suggesting that allopurinol might also be useful in people with diabetes who have normal or moderately impaired kidney function to decrease the risk of developing advanced kidney disease in the future. To prove this beneficial effect of allopurinol, we will be conducting an international clinical trial at eight diabetes centers, enrolling approximately 480 patients with type 1 diabetes who are at increased risk of developing kidney disease. Participants will be randomly assigned to take allopurinol or placebo (inactive pill) for three years, during which they will be followed through periodical visits. To prevent any possible bias, neither the participants nor the clinical staff knows who is taking allopurinol and who is taking the placebo. Kidney function will be measured at the beginning and at the end of the treatment period to see whether patients taking allopurinol experience a slower loss of kidney function over time as compared to those taking the inactive pill. If this trial is successful, the reduction in health problems resulting from the prevention or delay of kidney function loss due to the use of allopurinol would have a major impact on the lives of type 1 diabetic patients as well as on society at large, significantly reducing the human and financial costs associated with diabetic kidney disease. Because of the emphasis on early intervention, the proposed trial, if successful, will establish a new paradigm in treatments to slow or prevent progression towards end stage kidney disease in type 1 diabetes far beyond anything achieved to date.

• Male or female subjects with type 1 diabetes continuously treated with insulin within one year from diagnosis
• Duration of T1D ≥ 8 years
• Age 18-70 years
• History or presence of microalbuminuria or moderate macroalbuminuria, or evidence of declining kidney function regardless of history or presence of albuminuria and/or RAS Blocker treatment. Micro- or moderate macroalbuminuria will be defined as at least two out of three consecutive urinary albumin excretion rates [AERs] or albumin creatinine ratios [ACRs] taken at any time during the two years before screening or at screening in the 30-5000 mg/24 hr (20-3333 ug/min) or 30-5000 mg/g range, respectively, if not on RASB agents, or in the 18-5000 mg/24 hr (12-3333 ug/min) or 18-5000 mg/g range, respectively, if on RASB agents). Evidence of declining kidney function will be defined as an eGFR (CKD-EPI) decline ≥3.0 ml/min/1.73 m2/year, estimated from the slope derived from all the available serum creatinine measurements (including the one at screening assessment) from the previous 3 years. If at least 3 serum creatinine measures are not available in the previous 3 years, then the slope can be derived from creatinine values from the previous 5 years.
• Estimated GFR (eGFR) based on serum creatinine between 40 and 99.9 ml/min/1.73 m2 at screening. The upper and the lower limits should be decreased by 1 ml/min/1.73 m2 for each year over age 60 (with a lower limit of 35 ml/min/1.73m2) and by 10 ml/min/1.73 m2 for strict vegans.
