INTERCEPT Blood System for RBCs Study in Regions at Potential Risk for Zika Virus Transfusion-Transmitted Infections (RedeS)

Stage A: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of red blood cells (RBCs) prepared with the INTERCEPT Blood System for Red Blood Cells Pathogen Reduction Treatment (PRT) in comparison to conventional RBCs in patients who require RBC transfusion support. Stage B: To provide early access to the INTERCEPT pathogen reduction system for RBC in regions where a substantial proportion of the population has been infected or is at risk of a transfusion-transmissible infection, and the risk of asymptomatic infection among qualified blood donors is recognized. Besides the reduction of risk of transfusion transmitted ZIKV, the intent of the study is also to reduce the risk of transfusion-transmitted infections (TTI) in general, including transfusion related sepsis and other emerging or concurrent endemic pathogens (e.g., SARS-CoV-2, Dengue and Chikungunya), and to potentially reduce the risk of TA-GVHD. As part of this treatment use study, additional data will be provided on the safety of INTERCEPT-treated RBCs (IBS RBCs) supplied for routine clinical transfusion practice.

Tranexamic Acid for Prevention of Hemorrhage in Cesarean Delivery (TXA)

The investigators prepared a novel study of tranexamic acid (TXA) designed to estimate the quantity of blood loss in women undergoing elective repeat cesarean deliveries. This is the first trial to utilize a prophylactic dose of TXA prior to incision followed by a subsequent prophylactic dose at placental delivery in obstetric patients undergoing scheduled cesareans. The purpose of this study is to quantify blood loss during uncomplicated repeat cesarean deliveries with and without TXA. The central hypothesis is that TXA administration reduces blood loss and fibrinolysis in women undergoing repeat cesarean sections.

Promoting Enhanced Pharmacotherapy Choice Through Immunomarkers Evaluation in Depression (PRECISE-D)

PRECISE-D is a single site, randomized, open label 8-week clinical trial that will enroll 70 participants to evaluate if the level of inflammation in our body can predict how we will respond to antidepressants. C-reactive protein (CRP) is a substance in the body that is associated with inflammation. Previous research has suggested that people with high CRP (i.e., high inflammation levels) tend to have greater improvement of depressive symptoms with an antidepressant called bupropion, while individuals with low CRP (i.e., low inflammation levels) appear to have more benefit from selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors antidepressants (SSRI), such as escitalopram. However, it is not completely clear if CRP can predict your response to these two antidepressants. Participants will undergo a screening visit that includes a physical exam, overall health evaluation, assessment of mental health history, and a toxicology and pregnancy test. Once screening is complete, participants will be randomized to one of two groups that will determine whether their CRP levels will be used to select which antidepressant they will receive. Participants will then complete 4 follow up visits at weeks 2, 4, 6, and 8. A follow-up phone call from the study team will occur at week 12.

A Research Study to See How Semaglutide Works Compared to Placebo in People With Type 2 Diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease (FLOW)

The researchers are doing this study to see if semaglutide can slow down the growth and worsening of chronic kidney disease in people with type 2 diabetes. Participants will get semaglutide (active medicine) or placebo ('dummy medicine'). This is known as participants' study medicine - which treatment participants get is decided by chance. Semaglutide is a medicine, doctors can prescribe in some countries for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Participants will get the study medicine in a pen. Participants will use the pen to inject the medicine in a skin fold once a week. The study will close when there is enough information collected to show clear result of the study. The total time participants will be in this study is about 3 to 5 years, but it could be longer.

Irinotecan Hydrochloride, Temozolomide, and Dinutuximab With or Without Eflornithine in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Neuroblastoma

This phase II trial studies how well irinotecan hydrochloride, temozolomide, and dinutuximab work with or without eflornithine in treating patients with neuroblastoma that has come back (relapsed) or that isn't responding to treatment (refractory). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan hydrochloride and temozolomide, 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. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as dinutuximab, may induce changes in the body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Eflornithine blocks the production of chemicals called polyamines that are important in the growth of cancer cells. Giving eflornithine with irinotecan hydrochloride, temozolomide, and dinutuximab, may work better in treating patients with relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma.

• No interim time prior to study entry is required following prior radiation therapy (RT) for non-target lesions. However, patients must not have received radiation for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to study entry at the site of any lesion that will be identified as a target lesion to measure tumor response. Lesions that have been previously radiated cannot be used as target lesions unless there is radiographic evidence of progression at the site following radiation or a biopsy done following radiation shows viable neuroblastoma. Palliative radiation while on study is not permitted.
• Patients are eligible >= 6 weeks after autologous stem cell transplants or stem cell infusions (including stem cell infusions given as supportive care following 131 I-MIBG therapy) as long as hematologic and other eligibility criteria have been met.
• Patients are eligible >= 6 weeks after therapeutic 131 I-MIBG provided that all other eligibility criteria are met.

PARP Inhibition During Pre-surgical Window in Breast/Ovary Cancer

Study involves surgery for cytoreduction or laparoscopy to determine if you are a candidate for tumor debulking or a tissue biopsy. Following this surgery you will receive chemotherapy. This study will administer 7 days of treatment with a targeted therapy called Lynparza. Lynparza and/or other PARP inhibitors have been FDA approved for the treatment of ovarian and breast cancer. Tissue biopsy will be done before a 7 day course of Lynparza in order to correlate molecular changes to response to treatment. Participation in this trial will require an additional tumor biopsy which will occur either before or after treatment of Lynparza.

Comparing Individualized vs. Weight Based Protocols to Treat VOE in SCD Occlusive Episodes in Sickle Cell Disease (COMPARE-VOE)

The purpose of this research study is to compare two different ways to give opioid pain medicine to treat sickle cell disease pain that is bad enough to go to the emergency department for treatment. One way uses your weight to decide how much pain medicine to give you while in the emergency department. This is called weight based treatment. The other way uses how much pain medicine you take at home and how much medicine you needed during past emergency department visits to decide how much medicine to give you. This is called patient specific treatment.

This phase III trial studies whether pembrolizumab alone as a first-line treatment, followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab after disease progression is superior to induction with pembrolizumab, pemetrexed and carboplatin followed by pembrolizumab and pemetrexed maintenance in treating patients with stage IV non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed and carboplatin, 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. It is not yet known whether giving first-line pembrolizumab followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab works better in treating patients with non-squamous non-small cell cancer.

PROSpect: Prone and Oscillation Pediatric Clinical Trial

Severe pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome (PARDS) is a life-threatening and frequent problem experienced by thousands of children each year. Little evidence supports current supportive practices during their critical illness. The overall objective of this study is to identify the best positional and/or ventilation practice that leads to improved patient outcomes in these critically ill children. We hypothesize that children with severe PARDS treated with either prone positioning or high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) will demonstrate more days off the ventilator when compared to children treated with supine positioning or conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV).

Clinical Study to Compare the Efficacy and Safety of Macitentan and Tadalafil Monotherapies With the Corresponding Fixed-dose Combination Therapy in Subjects With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) (A DUE)

Combination therapy in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) has been the subject of active investigation for more than a decade, with the benefit of targeting different pathways known to be involved in the pathogenesis of the disease. Adherence to prescribed therapy has an impact on clinical outcomes. Reducing the pill/tablet count and frequency has a major impact on patients' adherence to therapies and therefore the observed clinical outcomes. One way to simplify treatment is to use fixed-dose combination (FDC) products that combine multiple treatments targeting different pathways into a single tablet. This study aims to demonstrate that the FDC of macitentan and tadalafil is more effective than therapy with 10 mg of macitentan alone or 40 mg of tadalafil alone. This phase 3 study will evaluate the efficacy and safety at 16 weeks of an FDC (macitentan 10 mg and tadalafil 40 mg) against these two PAH-approved therapies given as monotherapy to further confirm the added value of the FDC.

A Study of the Drugs Selumetinib vs. Carboplatin and Vincristine in Patients With Low-Grade Glioma

This phase 3 trial compares the effect of selumetinib versus the standard of care treatment with carboplatin and vincristine (CV) in treating patients with newly diagnosed or previously untreated low-grade glioma (LGG) that does not have a genetic abnormality called BRAFV600E mutation and is not associated with systemic neurofibromatosis type 1. Selumetinib works by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and may kill tumor cells. Carboplatin and vincristine are chemotherapy drugs that work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. The overall goal of this study is to see if selumetinib works just as well as the standard treatment of CV for patients with LGG. Another goal of this study is to compare the effects of selumetinib versus CV in subjects with LGG to find out which is better. Additionally, this trial will also examine if treatment with selumetinib improves the quality of life for subjects who take it.

Genetic Testing in Guiding Treatment for Patients With Brain Metastases

This phase II trial studies how well genetic testing works in guiding treatment for patients with solid tumors that have spread to the brain. Several genes have been found to be altered or mutated in brain metastases such as NTRK, ROS1, CDK or PI3K. Medications that target these genes such as abemaciclib, paxalisib, and entrectinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Genetic testing may help doctors tailor treatment for each mutation.

Immunotherapy With Nivolumab and Ipilimumab Followed by Nivolumab or Nivolumab With Cabozantinib for Patients With Advanced Kidney Cancer, The PDIGREE Study

This phase III trial compares the usual treatment (treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab followed by nivolumab alone) to treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab, followed by nivolumab with cabozantinib in patients with untreated renal cell carcinoma that has spread to other parts of the body. The addition of cabozantinib to the usual treatment may make it work better. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Cabozantinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known how well the combination of cabozantinib and nivolumab after initial treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab works in treating patients with renal cell cancer that has spread to other parts of the body.

Immuno-Oncology Drugs Elotuzumab, Anti-LAG-3 and Anti-TIGIT

This a Phase I/II randomized trial for patients with relapsed refractory Multiple Myeloma who have relapsed after treatment with prior therapies. The protocol is designed to evaluate two agents, Anti-LAG-3 and Anti-TIGIT, in order to understand their immunologic effects and safety both as single agents and in combination with pomalidomide and dexamethasone. In these arms, patients will be treated with either Anti-LAG-3 or Anti-TIGIT respectively for one cycle as single agent followed by the addition of pomalidomide and dexamethasone in combination for subsequent cycles. A third arm allows patients to be treated with the FDA approved combination of elotuzumab plus pomalidomide and dexamethsone as a control. This arm will thus allow a concurrent standard of care comparator for the experimental arms.

Male patients are considered not to be of child-producing potential if they have azoospermia (whether due to vasectomy or an underlying medical condition). Female patients are considered not to be of child-producing potential if they are:
• postmenopausal* , or
• have had a hysterectomy and/or bilateral oophorectomy, bilateral salpingectomy or bilateral tubal ligation/occlusion, at least 6 weeks prior to screening, or
• have a congenital or acquired condition that prevents childbearing. Male or female patients of child-producing potential must agree to comply with one of the following until at least 120 days after the last dose of derazantinib: 1. Abstinence from heterosexual activity** 2. Using (or having their partner use) an acceptable method of contraception during heterosexual activity. Acceptable methods of contraception are***:
