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.

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Temsirolimus in Treating Patients With Intermediate Risk Rhabdomyosarcoma

This randomized phase III trial studies how well combination chemotherapy (vincristine sulfate, dactinomycin, cyclophosphamide alternated with vincristine sulfate and irinotecan hydrochloride or vinorelbine) works compared to combination chemotherapy plus temsirolimus in treating patients with rhabdomyosarcoma (cancer that forms in the soft tissues, such as muscle), and has an intermediate chance of coming back after treatment (intermediate risk). Drugs used work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Combination chemotherapy and temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether chemotherapy plus temsirolimus is more effective than chemotherapy alone in treating patients with intermediate-risk rhabdomyosarcoma.

Inclusion Criteria-Part A: Subject must meet all of the following applicable inclusion criteria to participate in this study:
• Patients must have histologically confirmed advanced RCC (any histology). Collecting duct tumors and tumors originating from the renal pelvis or upper urinary tract are considered of urothelial origin and are excluded from this protocol.
• Patients must have at least one measurable site of disease, per RECIST 1.1, that has not been previously irradiated. If the patient has had previous radiation to the marker lesion(s), there must be evidence of progression since the radiation.
• Archival tissue of a metastatic lesion obtained within 1 year prior to study registration (within 4 weeks preferred) and tumor tissue from nephrectomy is required if available. In addition to archival tissue of a metastatic lesion and nephrectomy, patients must have at least one site of disease (not including bone metastases) accessible for biopsy. If biopsy/resection of a new lesion or primary tumor and slow freezing of fresh tissue for single cell RNAseq study (as specified in the CLM) is not feasible, the subject is not eligible for the study. All biopsies must be core needle or excisional. Fine needle aspirate is not acceptable. NOTE: The tissue collected from a surgical resection or multiple core biopsies of either a metastatic lesion or primary tumor for the slow freezing of fresh tissue after the patient has signed consent for the study could also be used for collecting the FFPE specimens.
• ECOG performance status 0-2.
• Age ≥ 18 years.
• Have signed the current approved informed consent form.
• Patients must have adequate organ function within 14 days prior to study entry as evidenced by screening laboratory values that must meet the following criteria:
• Hematological:
• White blood cell (WBC) ≥ 2000/µL
• Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) ≥ 1500/μL
• Platelets (Plt) ≥ 100 x103/μL
• Hemoglobin (Hgb) > 9.0 g/dL (with or without transfusion)
• Renal:
• Serum Creatinine ≤ 1.5 x ULN; if creatinine > 1.5, subject must demonstrate CrCl as outlined below.

• Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≤ 3 × ULN
• Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 3 × ULN
• Patients should not have received prior systemic therapy for metastatic RCC. Prior radiotherapy must have been completed at least 2 weeks prior to the administration of study drug. Patients must be 2 weeks from prior major surgery and 1 week from pre-treatment biopsy. Prior systemic adjuvant therapy (excluding with PD1 or CTLA4 pathway blockers) is allowed if treatment completed > 12 months previously.
• Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must use appropriate method(s) of contraception. WOCBP should use an adequate method to avoid pregnancy for 5 months after the last dose of study drug. NOTE: Contraception is not required for male participants.
• Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test (minimum sensitivity 25 IU/L or equivalent units of HCG) during screening for registration purposes. This pregnancy test should be repeated within 24 hours prior to the start of nivolumab. NOTE: "Women of childbearing potential" is defined as any female who has experienced menarche and who has not undergone surgical sterilization (hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy) or who is not postmenopausal. Menopause is defined clinically as 12 months of amenorrhea in a woman over 45 in the absence of other biological or physiological causes. In addition, women under the age of 55 must have a documented serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) level less than 40 mIU/ml.
• Women must not be breastfeeding.
• Be willing and able to comply with this protocol.
Exclusion Criteria:

• Patients are excluded if they have active brain metastases or leptomeningeal metastases. Subjects with brain metastases are eligible if metastases have been treated and there is no magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) evidence of progression for 2 weeks of more after treatment is complete and within 28 days prior to the first dose of nivolumab administration. There must also be no requirement for immunosuppressive doses of systemic corticosteroids (> 10 mg/day prednisone equivalents) for at least 2 weeks prior to study drug administration.
• Patients with controlled brain metastases are allowed on protocol if they had solitary brain metastases that was surgically resected without recurrence or treated with SRS without progression x 4 weeks.
• Patients should be excluded if they have an active, known or suspected autoimmune disease. Subjects are permitted to enroll if they have vitiligo, type I diabetes mellitus, residual hypothyroidism due to autoimmune condition only requiring hormone replacement, psoriasis not requiring systemic treatment, or conditions not expected to recur in the absence of an external trigger.
• Patients should be excluded if they have a condition requiring systemic treatment with either corticosteroids (> 10 mg daily prednisone equivalents) or other immunosuppressive medications within 14 days of study drug administration. Inhaled or topical steroids and adrenal replacement doses > 10 mg daily prednisone equivalents are permitted in the absence of active autoimmune disease.
• As there is potential for hepatic toxicity with nivolumab or nivolumab/ipilimumab combinations, drugs with a predisposition to hepatoxicity should be used with caution in patients treated with nivolumab-containing regimen
• Active infection requiring systemic therapy
• Has any other medical or personal condition that, in the opinion of the site investigator, may potentially compromise the safety or compliance of the patient, or may preclude the patient's successful completion of the clinical trial
• Patients should be excluded if they are positive test for hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBV sAg) or hepatitis C virus ribonucleic acid (HCV antibody) indicating acute or chronic infection

Study of Biomarker-Based Treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukemia

This screening and multi-sub-study Phase 1b/2 trial will establish a method for genomic screening followed by assigning and accruing simultaneously to a multi-study "Master Protocol (BAML-16-001-M1)." The specific subtype of acute myeloid leukemia will determine which sub-study, within this protocol, a participant will be assigned to evaluate investigational therapies or combinations with the ultimate goal of advancing new targeted therapies for approval. The study also includes a marker negative sub-study which will include all screened patients not eligible for any of the biomarker-driven sub-studies.

A Probiotic Intervention to Prevent Relapse Following Hospitalization for Mania

This will be a 24-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of adjunctive probiotic therapy in 66 persons hospitalized with a manic or mixed episode. The active study compound will consist of capsules containing approximately 10^9 colony forming units of the probiotic organisms, Lactobacillus GG and Bifidobacteria lactis strain Bb12. The dose has been selected because it has been used safely in other probiotic trials, was well-tolerated by the participants in two previous trials of individuals with schizophrenia or mania, and was utilized in the original trial on which this replication is based. This dose is higher than that available in most commercially-sold health food supplements. Following hospital discharge, participants will be randomized to receive adjunctive probiotic or placebo for a 24 week period. It is anticipated that of the 66 participants randomized, ~50 (75%) will complete the full 24 weeks of the study. The primary outcome is relapse, defined as re-hospitalization (e.g., admission to an inpatient unit) for psychiatric symptoms following a previous hospital discharge by at least 2 weeks. The occurrence of new mood episodes, the severity of psychiatric symptoms, and any changes in cognitive test scores over the course of the study will also be evaluated. Changes in the levels of inflammatory markers as well as changes in gut microbiota will be evaluated at three time intervals over the course of the study.

Nivolumab With or Without Varlilumab in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Aggressive B-cell Lymphomas

This phase II trial studies how well nivolumab with or without varlilumab works in treating patients with aggressive B-cell lymphomas that have come back (recurrent) or do not respond to treatment (refractory). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as varlilumab and nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
