Abatacept in Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Myocarditis (ATRIUM)
The primary aim is to test whether abatacept, as compared to placebo, is associated with a reduction in major adverse cardiac events (MACE) among participants hospitalized with myocarditis secondary to an immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI). The primary outcome, MACE, is a composite of first occurrence of cardiovascular death, non-fatal sudden cardiac arrest, cardiogenic shock, significant ventricular arrythmias, significant bradyarrythmias, or incident heart failure.

This value of troponin of ≥5 times above the institutional upper limits of normal value must be noted within 10 days prior to potential randomization. The 10-day period can be in the outpatient or inpatient setting. For example, a participant with a troponin value that on one occasion was ≥5 times the upper limits of institutional normal in the 10-day window prior to potential randomization (whether in the inpatient or outpatient setting), but later decreases below that threshold, typically due to starting corticosteroids, would still be considered eligible;

Tagraxofusp in Pediatric Patients With Relapsed or Refractory CD123 Expressing Hematologic Malignancies
Tagraxofusp is a protein-drug conjugate consisting of a diphtheria toxin redirected to target CD123 has been approved for treatment in pediatric and adult patients with blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN). This trial aims to examine the safety of this novel agent in pediatric patients with relapsed/refractory hematologic malignancies. The mechanism by which tagraxofusp kills cells is distinct from that of conventional chemotherapy. Tagraxofusp directly targets CD123 that is present on tumor cells, but is expressed at lower or levels or absent on normal hematopoietic stem cells. Tagraxofusp also utilizes a payload that is not cell cycle dependent, making it effective against both highly proliferative tumor cells and also quiescent tumor cells. The rationale for clinical development of tagraxofusp for pediatric patients with hematologic malignancies is based on the ubiquitous and high expression of CD123 on many of these diseases, as well as the highly potent preclinical activity and robust clinical responsiveness in adults observed to date. This trial includes two parts: a monotherapy phase and a combination chemotherapy phase. This design will provide further monotherapy safety data and confirm the FDA approved pediatric dose, as well as provide safety data when combined with chemotherapy. The goal of this study is to improve survival rates in children and young adults with relapsed hematological malignancies, determine the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of tagraxofusp given alone and in combination with chemotherapy, as well as to describe the toxicities, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamic properties of tagraxofusp in pediatric patients. About 54 children and young adults will participate in this study. Patients with Down syndrome will be included in part 1 of the study.

• Have known current severe left ventricular outflow obstruction.
• Have had major cardiac surgery within 6 months before the Screening Visit.
• Have a history of, or currently experiencing, clinically significant arrhythmias.

Physical Rehabilitation for Older Patients With Acute Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction (REHAB-HFpEF)
The REHAB-HFpEF trial will determine whether a novel physical rehabilitation intervention will improve the primary outcome of combined all-cause rehospitalizations and mortality and the secondary outcome of major mobility disability during 6-month follow-up in patients hospitalized for heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), which is nearly unique to older persons, and for which there are few treatment options.
• Age >=60 years old
• Ejection Fraction >=45%
• In the hospital setting >24 hours for the management of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF), or diagnosed with ADHF after being hospitalized for another reason. ADHF will be confirmed by the site physician, and will be defined according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) definition of hospitalized heart failure as a combination of symptoms, signs, and HF-specific medical treatments, and requires that all 4 of the following are met:
• At least 1 symptom of HF which has worsened from baseline: a. dyspnea at rest or with exertion; b. exertional fatigue; c. orthopnea; d. paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea (PND)
• At least 2 of the following signs of HF: a. Pulmonary congestion or edema on physical exam (rales or crackles) or by chest X-ray; b. Elevated jugular venous pressure or central venous pressure >=10 mm Hg; c. peripheral edema; d. wedge or left ventricular end diastolic pressure >=15 mmHg; e. rapid weight gain (>=5 lbs.); f. Increased b-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) (>=100 pg/ml) or N-terminal prohormone BNP (>=220pg/ml)
• Change in medical treatment specifically targeting HF, defined as change in dose or initiation of or augmentation of at least 1 of the following therapies: a. diuretics; b. vasodilators; c. other neurohormonal modulating agents, including angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers (with or without neprilysin inhibitor), beta-blockers, aldosterone inhibitors, direct renin inhibitors, or sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors
• The primary cause of symptoms and signs is judged by the investigator to be due to HF
• Adequate clinical stability to allow participation in study assessments and the intervention Independent with basic activities of daily living, including the ability to ambulate independently (with or without the use of an assistive device) prior to admission
• Able to walk 4 meters (with or without the use of an assistive device) at the time of enrollment
• Acute myocardial infarction within the past 3 months, or planned coronary artery intervention (percutaneous or surgical) within the next 6 months (Note: given that cardiac biomarkers such as troponin are frequently elevated in HF patients, the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction should be based on clinical diagnosis, not biomarkers alone)
• Severe aortic or mitral valve stenosis
• Severe valvular heart disease with planned intervention within next 6 months
• Known pericardial constriction, genetic hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or infiltrative cardiomyopathy including amyloid heart disease (amyloidosis)
• Planned discharge other than to home or a facility where the participant will live independently
• Terminal illness other than HF with life expectancy <1 year
• Impairment from stroke or other medical disorders that preclude participation in the intervention
• Known dementia by medical record documentation, OR patients with Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) <=18 AND without social support, OR MoCA <10 regardless of social support
• Advanced chronic kidney disease defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate <20 mL/min/1.73 m2 or on chronic or intermittent dialysis or dialysis anticipated within the next 6 months
• Already engaging in regular moderate to vigorous exercise conditioning defined as >30 minutes per day, >= twice per week consistently during the previous 6 weeks
• Enrollment in a clinical trial not approved for co-enrollment
• High risk for non-adherence as determined by screening evaluation
• Inability or unwillingness to comply with the study requirements or give consent
