A Study to Give Treatment Inside the Eye to Treat Retinoblastoma

This phase II trial tests the safety and side effects of adding melphalan (by injecting it into the eye) to standard chemotherapy in early treatment of patients with retinoblastoma (RB). RB is a type of cancer that forms in the tissues of the retina (the light-sensitive layers of nerve tissue at the back of the eye). It may be hereditary or nonhereditary (sporadic). RB is considered harder to treat (higher risk) when there are vitreous seeds present. Vitreous seeds are RB tumors in the jelly-like fluid of the eye (called the vitreous humor). The term, risk, refers to the chance of the cancer not responding to treatment or coming back after treatment. Melphalan is in a class of medications called alkylating agents. It may kill cancer cells by damaging their deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and stopping them from dividing. Other chemotherapy drugs given during this trial include carboplatin, vincristine, and etoposide. Carboplatin is in a class of medications known as platinum-containing compounds. It works in a way similar to the anticancer drug cisplatin, but may be better tolerated than cisplatin. Carboplatin works by killing, stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells. Vincristine is in a class of medications called vinca alkaloids. It works by stopping cancer cells from growing and dividing and may kill them. Etoposide is in a class of medications known as podophyllotoxin derivatives. It blocks a certain enzyme needed for cell division and DNA repair and may kill cancer cells. Adding melphalan to standard chemotherapy early in treatment may improve the ability to treat vitreous seeds and may be better than standard chemotherapy alone in treating retinoblastoma.

Subclinical Transthyretin Cardiac Amyloidosis in V122I TTR Carriers

Approximately 1.5 million of the 44 million Blacks in the United States are carriers of the valine-to-isoleucine substitution at position 122 (V122I) in the transthyretin (TTR) protein. Virtually exclusive to Blacks, this is the most common cause of hereditary cardiac amyloidosis (hATTR-CA) worldwide. hATTR-CA leads to worsening heart failure (HF) and premature death. Fortunately, new therapies that stabilize TTR improve morbidity and mortality in hATTR-CA, especially when prescribed early in the disease. However, hATTR-CA is often diagnosed at an advanced stage and conventional diagnostic tools lack diagnostic specificity to detect early disease. The overall objectives of this study are to determine the presence of subclinical hATTR-CA and to identify biomarkers that indicate amyloid progression in V122I TTR carriers. The central hypothesis of this proposal is that hATTR-CA has a long latency period that will be detected through subclinical amyloidosis imaging and biomarker phenotyping. The central hypothesis will be tested by pursuing 2 specific aims: Aim 1) determine the association of V122I TTR carrier status with CMRI evidence of amyloid infiltration; Sub-aim 1) determine the association of V122I TTR carrier status with cardiac reserve; Aim 2) determine the association between amyloid-specific biomarkers and V122I TTR carrier status; and Sub-aim 2) determine the association of amyloid-specific biomarkers with imaging-based parameters and evaluate their diagnostic utility for identifying subclinical hATTR-CA. In Aim 1, CMRI will be used to compare metrics associated with cardiac amyloid infiltration between a cohort of V122I TTR carriers without HF formed by cascade genetic testing and age-, sex-, and race-matched non-carrier controls. For Sub-Aim 1, a sub-sample of carriers and non-carrier controls enrolled in Aim 1 will undergo novel exercise CMRI to measure and compare cardiac systolic and diastolic reserve. Aim 2 involves measuring and comparing amyloid-specific biomarkers in V122I TTR carriers without HF with samples matched non-carriers (both from Aim 1) and individuals with symptomatic V122I hATTR-CA from our clinical sites. These biomarkers detect and quantify different processes of TTR amyloidogenesis and include circulating TTR, retinol binding protein 4, TTR kinetic stability, and misfolded TTR oligomers. Sub-aim 2 will establish the role of these biomarkers to detect imaging evidence of subclinical hATTR-CA disease.

Radiofrequency Ablation and Steroid Versus Steroid Alone for Relief of Pain in Patients With Advanced Knee and Hip Osteoarthritis

The purpose of this trial is to determine if radiofrequency ablation plus steroid perineural injections at the knee or hip provide longer pain relief and better function to patients than the current standard of care, perineural steroid injections alone. This pilot study is a prospective two arm randomized trail, all participants will be recruited from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) outpatient orthopedic clinic. 40 participants (20 hip and 20 knee OA) will be enrolled into the standard of care arm (treated with steroid injections alone) and 40 participants (20 hip and 20 knee OA) will be enrolled into the investigational arm (treatment with a combination of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) plus steroid injections) for a total of 80 enrolled participants. All subjects will complete a function and pain assessment at the time of injection and three additional time points: 2 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months post injection. This study will use the same knee function questionnaire and frequency currently used in clinic per standard of care. In addition, all participant's surgical history and prior injection history will be reviewed via the Electronic Medical Record (EMR).

Transthyretin cardiac amyloidosis (ATTR-CA) is a relentlessly progressive disease that can progress to end stage heart failure, at which point recently approved transthyretin production silencing or structure stabilizing therapies provide no clinical benefit. For well-selected individuals, heart transplantation is an excellent therapeutic option to improve survival. Historically, concomitant liver transplantation has been used to halt the progression of non-cardiac transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR) manifestations, especially for individuals with TTR genotypes associated with significant neuropathy. However, despite this, patients continue to experience progressive non-cardiac manifestations, particularly gastrointestinal and neuropathic, which can have a substantial influence on post-heart transplantation morbidity. Concomitant liver transplantation is also associated with substantial morbidity and its future therapeutic role is questionable with recently established therapies for ATTR. Therefore, there is a clear unmet need to determine the utility and safety of ATTR targeted therapies for patients with recent heart transplantation for end-stage ATTR-CA. The central hypothesis of this proposal is that in patients who have received a heart transplantation for end-stage ATTR-CA, tafamidis therapy will be efficacious and well-tolerated. We aim to determine the safety and efficacy of tafamidis in stable patients who have undergone heart or combined heart/liver transplantation for ATTR (wild-type or variant) cardiac amyloidosis. The proposed study will be a single-arm intervention clinical trial with tafamidis. Because of the efficacy of tafamidis for both variant ATTR-CA and wild-type ATTR-CA, there is no clinical equipoise for an inactive-comparator placebo arm. The primary endpoint of this study will be serial change in plasma transthyretin (TTR) levels from baseline to 12 months at 3-month intervals. The secondary endpoints of this study will include serial changes in neuropathy assessments, modified body mass indices, incident transplant-specific adverse events, and pharmacokinetics of tafamidis. Observations from this study will establish the role of tafamidis use for the management of ATTR in patients after transplantation for end-stage ATTR-CA.

A Phase 1b/2 Trial of the Safety and Microbiological Activity of Bacteriophage Therapy in Cystic Fibrosis Subjects Colonized With Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

This is a phase 1b/2 study of a single dose of intravenous (IV) bacteriophage in males and non-pregnant females, at least 18 years old, diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). This clinical trial is designed to assess the safety and microbiological activity of bacteriophage product WRAIR-PAM-CF1, directed at Pseudomonas aeruginosa in clinically stable CF individuals chronically colonized with P. aeruginosa. WRAIR-PAM-CF1 is a 4 component anti-pseudomonal bacteriophage mixture containing between 4 x 10^7 and 4 x 10^9 Plaque Forming Units (PFU) of bacteriophage. Enrollment will occur at up to 20 clinical sites in the United States. In stage 1, two eligible subjects will be assigned to each of the three dosing arms receiving a single dosage of the IV bacteriophage therapy (4 x 10^7 PFU, 4 x 10^8 PFU, and 4 x 10^9 PFU; total of 6 sentinel subjects), followed by 30 ± 7 days observation period. If no SAEs (related to the study product) are identified during the 96 hours after bacteriophage administration for all Sentinel Subjects in Stage 1, the study will proceed to Stage 2. In Stage 2a, 32 subjects will be enrolled into one of 4 arms (placebo IV, 4 x 10^7 PFU, 4 x 10^8 PFU, and 4 x 10^9 PFU) in a 1:1:1:1 allocation. An interim analysis will be performed after all subjects have completed follow up visit 7 on Day 30 to select the IV bacteriophage dose with the most favorable safety and microbiological activity profile. During Stage 2b, subjects will be randomized into the bacteriophage (dose selected based on Interim Analysis following Stage 2a) or placebo arm. The final sample size is expected to be up to 72 subjects total with up to 25 subjects in the placebo arm and up to 25 subjects in the Stage 2b bacteriophage dose.

A Study of TTI-101 as Monotherapy and in Combination in Participants With Locally Advanced or Metastatic, and Unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma

The primary objectives of Cohort A Phase 1b are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of TTI-101 orally administered as a single agent to participants with locally advanced or metastatic, and unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) and to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of TTI-101 as a single agent. The primary objectives of Cohort A Phase 2 are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of TTI-101 orally administered as a single agent at the RP2D to participants with locally advanced or metastatic, and unresectable HCC and to assess the preliminary efficacy of TTI-101 as a single agent in participants with locally advanced or metastatic, and unresectable HCC. The secondary objectives of Cohort A Phase 2 are to assess response, progression, survival, and pharmacokinetics. The primary objectives of Cohorts B and C Phase 1b are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of TTI-101 orally administered in combination with pembrolizumab therapy (Cohort B) and in combination with atezolizumab and bevacizumab therapy (Cohort C) to participants with locally advanced or metastatic, or unresectable HCC and to determine the MTD and/or RP2D of TTI-101 when used in combination with pembrolizumab therapy (Cohort B) and in combination with atezolizumab and bevacizumab therapy (Cohort C). The primary objectives of Cohorts B and C Phase 2 are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of TTI-101 orally administered in combination with pembrolizumab therapy (Cohort B) and in combination with atezolizumab and bevacizumab therapy (Cohort C) at the RP2D to participants with locally advanced or metastatic, and unresectable HCC and to assess the preliminary efficacy of TTI-101 in combination with pembrolizumab therapy (Cohort B) and in combination with atezolizumab and bevacizumab therapy (Cohort C) to participants with locally advanced or metastatic, and unresectable HCC. The secondary objectives of Cohorts B and C Phase 2 are to assess response, progression, survival, and pharmacokinetics.

Study to Assess Change in Disease Activity and Adverse Events of Ab Externo Approach for Glaucoma Gel Stent (XEN45) Implantation In Participants Aged 45 Years or Older With Open-Angle Glaucoma

Glaucoma is the second most common cause of blindness in the world, second only to cataracts. This study will assess how safe and effective a glaucoma gel stent is when implanted using the ab externo approach. Adverse events and intraocular pressure will be assessed. XEN45 is an approved device for the treatment of glaucoma implanted using the ab interno approach (inside the eye). XEN45 implanted using the ab externo approach (outside the eye) is being studied in this study. Approximately 65 participants aged 45 years or older with open-angle glaucoma will be enrolled in this study at approximately 22 sites in the United States. All participants will receive XEN45 implanted using the ab externo approach on Day 1 and will be followed for 12 months. Participants will attend regular visits during the study at a hospital or clinic. The safety and effect of the gel stent on your glaucoma will be checked by medical assessments and eye examinations.

Testing Cabozantinib With or Without Atezolizumab in Patients With Advanced Papillary Kidney Cancer, PAPMET2 Trial

This phase II trial compares the effect of atezolizumab in combination with usual treatment with cabozantinib to cabozantinib alone in patients with papillary renal cell carcinoma that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Papillary renal cell carcinoma (PRCC) is a type of kidney cancer that forms in the lining of the tiny tubes in the kidney that return filtered substances that the body needs back to the blood and remove extra fluid and waste as urine. Most papillary tumors look like long, thin finger-like growths under a microscope. It is also called papillary kidney cancer or PRCC. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help body's immune system attack the cancer and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Cabozantinib is in a class of medications called kinase inhibitors. It works by blocking the action of an abnormal protein that signals cancer cells to multiply and may also prevent the growth of new blood vessels that tumors need to grow. By these actions it may help slow or stop the spread of cancer cells. Combination therapy with atezolizumab and cabozantinib may shrink the cancer and allow a longer survival time in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma.

Venetoclax and Azacitidine for Treatment of Therapy Related or Secondary Myelodysplastic Syndrome

This phase II trial studies the effect of venetoclax and azacitidine in treating patients with therapy related or secondary myelodysplastic syndrome. Venetoclax may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking Bcl-2, a protein needed for cancer cell survival. Chemotherapy drugs, such as azacitidine, 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. Giving venetoclax in combination with azacitidine may work better in treating patients with therapy related or secondary myelodysplastic syndrome.

Pediatric Influence of Cooling Duration on Efficacy in Cardiac Arrest Patients (P-ICECAP) (ICECAP)

This is a multicenter trial to establish the efficacy of cooling and the optimal duration of induced hypothermia for neuroprotection in pediatric comatose survivors of cardiac arrest. The study team hypothesizes that longer durations of cooling may improve either the proportion of children that attain a good neurobehavioral recovery or may result in better recovery among the proportion already categorized as having a good outcome.

Claudin 18.2 protein, or CLDN18.2 is a protein found on cells in the digestive system. It is also found on some tumors. Researchers are looking at ways to attack CLDN18.2 to help control tumors. ASP2138 is thought to bind to 2 targets at the same time: CLDN18.2 and a protein called CD3 found on immune cells, called T-cells. ASP2138 works by binding to both the tumor cell and CD3 which "tells" the immune system to attack the tumor. ASP2138 is a potential new treatment for people with stomach cancer, gastroesophageal junction cancer, (cancer where the tube that carries food (esophagus) joins the stomach) or pancreatic cancer. Before ASP2138 is available as a treatment, the researchers need to understand how it is processed by and acts upon the body. This information will help to find a suitable dose and to check for potential medical problems from the treatment. Adults 18 years or older with stomach cancer, gastroesophageal junction cancer, or pancreatic cancer can take part. Their cancer is locally advanced unresectable or metastatic. Locally advanced means the cancer has spread to nearby tissue. Unresectable means the cancer cannot be removed by surgery. Metastatic means the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. The main aims of the study are to check the safety of ASP2138, how well it is tolerated, and to find a suitable dose of ASP2138 to be used later in this study. This is an open-label study. This means that people who take part in this study and clinic staff will know that people will receive ASP2138. The study will have 2 phases. In phase 1, different small groups of people will receive lower to higher doses of ASP2138. Any medical problems will be recorded at each dose. This is done to find suitable doses of ASP2138 to use later in the study. The first group will receive the lowest dose of ASP2138. A medical expert panel will check the results from this group and decide if the next group can receive a higher dose of ASP2138. The panel will do this for each group until all groups have received ASP2138, or until suitable doses have been selected for later in the study. Doctors will also check how each type of cancer is responding to ASP2138. In phase 1b, other different small groups will receive suitable doses of ASP2138 found from phase 1. Phase 1b will check how each type of cancer responds to ASP2138. The response to ASP2138 is measured using scans and blood tests. Doctors will continue to check for all medical problems throughout the study. ASP2138 will be given either through a vein in the arm (intravenous infusion) or just below the skin (subcutaneous injection). Treatment will be in cycles of either 7 or 14 days (1 or 2 weeks). In each treatment cycle, intravenous infusions or subcutaneous injections will either be given once a week or once every 2 weeks. People will continue to receive treatment until: their cancer gets worse; they have medical problems they can't tolerate; they ask to stop treatment; the doctors decide that continuing treatment is no longer in that person's best interest; the study is ended by the sponsor. Doctors will check if people had any medical problems from ASP2138. Other checks will include medical examinations, checking the nervous system, blood and urine tests and vital signs. Nervous system checks include checking peoples state of mind, reflexes, balance, movement and muscle strength. Vital signs include medical examinations, body temperature, breathing rate, and blood oxygen levels. Electrocardiograms (ECG) will be done to check the heart rhythm during the study. People will receive ASP2138 in a hospital. They will have blood tests and doctors will check for

Genetic Testing to Select Therapy for the Treatment of Advanced or Metastatic Kidney Cancer, OPTIC RCC Study

This phase II trial tests whether using genetic testing of tumor tissue to select the optimal treatment regimen works in treating patients with clear cell renal cell (kidney) cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced or metastatic). The current Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved regimens for advanced kidney cancer fall into two categories. One treatment combination includes two immunotherapy drugs (nivolumab plus ipilimumab), which are delivered by separate intravenous infusions into a vein. The other combination is one immunotherapy drug (nivolumab infusion) plus an oral pill taken by mouth (cabozantinib). Nivolumab and ipilimumab are "immunotherapies" which release the brakes of the immune system, thus allowing the patient's own immune system to better kill cancer cells. Cabozantinib is a "targeted therapy" specifically designed to block certain biological mechanisms needed for growth of cancer cells. In kidney cancer, cabozantinib blocks a tumor's blood supply. The genetic (DNA) makeup of the tumor may affect how well it responds to therapy. Testing the makeup (genes) of the tumor, may help match a treatment (from one of the above two treatment options) to the specific cancer and increase the chance that the disease will respond to treatment. The purpose of this study is to learn if genetic testing of tumor tissue may help doctors select the optimal treatment regimen to which advanced kidney cancer is more likely to respond.

Vincristine Pharmacokinetics in Infants

This pilot trial compares drug exposure levels using a new method for dosing vincristine in infants and young children compared to the standard dosing method based on body surface area (BSA) in older children. Vincristine is an anticancer drug used to a variety of childhood cancers. The doses anticancer drugs in children must be adjusted based on the size of the child because children vary significantly in size (height, weight, and BSA) and ability to metabolize drugs from infancy to adolescence. The dose of most anticancer drugs is adjusted to BSA, which is calculated from a patient's weight and height. However, infants and young children have more severe side effects if the BSA is used to calculate their dose, so new dosing models have to be made to safely give anticancer drugs to the youngest patients. This new method uses a BSA-banded approach to determine the dose. Collecting blood samples before and after a dose of the drug will help researchers determine whether this new vincristine dosing method results in equivalent drug levels in the blood over time in infants and young children compared to older children.
