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.

A Study of NKTR-262 in Combination With Bempegaldesleukin (NKTR-214) and With Bempegaldesleukin Plus Nivolumab in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumor Malignancies (REVEAL)

Patients will receive intra-tumoral (IT) NKTR-262 in 3-week treatment cycles. During the Phase 1 dose escalation portion of the trial, NKTR-262 will be combined with systemic administration of bempegaldesleukin. After determination of the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of NKTR-262, between 6 and 18 patients may be enrolled at the RP2D to further characterize the safety and tolerability profile of the combination of NKTR 262 plus bempegaldesleukin (doublet) or NKTR 262 plus bempegaldesleukin in combination with nivolumab (triplet) in Cohorts A and B, respectively. In the Phase 2 dose expansion portion, patients will be treated with doublet or triplet in the relapsed/refractory setting and earlier lines of therapy.

Neuromuscular Blockade in Patients With Severe Renal Impairment

This study is intended to be a single-site, prospective, randomized, double-blinded study that intends to enroll a total of 60 patients with severe renal impairment undergoing surgery with general endotracheal anesthesia at Parkland Hospital. Patients will be randomized to receive either neostigmine (for reversal of cisatracurium) or sugammadex (for reversal of rocuronium). A standardized anesthetic protocol that is usual and customary for the type of operation the patient is having will be provided to the anesthesia teams of enrolled subjects. The remainder of the anesthetic care of the subject will not deviate from the standard of care. All patients will be monitored with continuous pulse oximetry postoperatively for 24 hours.

The iCat2, GAIN (Genomic Assessment Informs Novel Therapy) Consortium Study

This research study is evaluating the use of specialized testing of solid tumors including sequencing. The process of performing these specialized tests is called tumor profiling. The tumor profiling may result in identifying changes in genes of the tumor that indicate that a particular therapy may have activity. This is called an individualized cancer therapy (iCat) recommendation. The results of the tumor profiling and, if applicable, the iCat recommendation will be returned.

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.

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.

Comparing the Outcome of Immunotherapy-Based Drug Combination Therapy With or Without Surgery to Remove the Kidney in Metastatic Kidney Cancer, the PROBE Trial (PROBE)

This phase III trial compares the effect of adding surgery to a standard of care immunotherapy-based drug combination versus a standard of care immunotherapy-based drug combination alone in treating patients with kidney cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, ipilimumab, pembrolizumab, and avelumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Axitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Surgery to remove the kidney, called a nephrectomy, is also considered standard of care; however, doctors who treat kidney cancer do not agree on its benefits. It is not yet known if the addition of surgery to an immunotherapy-based drug combination works better than an immunotherapy-based drug combination alone in treating patients with kidney cancer.

• The patient has persistent clinically significant ≥Grade 2 toxicities from previous anticancer therapy (excluding Grade 2 chemotherapy-related neuropathy which is permitted, and excluding Grade 2-3 laboratory abnormalities if they are not associated with symptoms, are not considered clinically significant by the Investigator, and can be managed with available medical therapies).
• The patient has received treatment with chemotherapy, external-beam radiation, or other systemic anticancer therapy within 28 days prior to study entry (Patients with advanced prostate cancer who are receiving luteinizing hormone releasing hormone [LHRH] agonists are permitted onto the study and should continue use of these agents during study treatment).
• The patient has received treatment with an investigational systemic anticancer agent within 28 days prior to C1D1.
• The patient has previously received treatment with SL-801 or another investigational agent that inhibits the XPO1/CRM1 pathway.
• The patient has an additional active malignancy that may confound the assessment of the study endpoints. Patients with a past cancer history (active malignancy within 2 years prior to study entry) with substantial potential for recurrence must be discussed with the Sponsor before study entry. Patients with the following concomitant neoplastic diagnoses are eligible: non-melanoma skin cancer, carcinoma in situ (including transitional cell carcinoma, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia), organ-confined prostate cancer with no evidence of progressive disease.
• The patient has clinically significant cardiovascular disease (e.g., uncontrolled or any New York Heart Association Class 3 or 4 congestive heart failure [Appendix 1], uncontrolled angina, history of myocardial infarction, unstable angina or stroke within 6 months prior to study entry, uncontrolled hypertension or clinically significant arrhythmias not controlled by medication).
• The patient has uncontrolled, clinically significant pulmonary disease (e.g., chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pulmonary hypertension) that, in the Investigator's opinion, would put the patient at significant risk for pulmonary complications during the study.
• The patient has known active or suspected brain or leptomeningeal metastases. (Central nervous system [CNS] imaging is not required prior to study entry unless there is a clinical suspicion of CNS involvement). Patients with stable, treated brain metastases are eligible provided there is no evidence of CNS disease growth on imaging for at least 3 months following radiation therapy or other locoregional ablative therapy to the CNS.
• The patient is receiving immunosuppressive therapy for prophylaxis following a prior organ transplant (solid organ or allogeneic stem cell) or management of immune-mediated toxicities due to immunotherapy. Low-dose corticosteroid (defined as < 10mg/day of prednisone or equivalent) therapy is permitted.
• The patient has uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, uncontrolled infection, disseminated intravascular coagulation, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements.
• The patient is pregnant or breast feeding.
• The patient has known positive status for human immunodeficiency virus active or chronic Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C.
• The patient is oxygen-dependent.
• The patient has any medical condition which in the opinion of the Investigator places the patient at an unacceptably high risk for toxicities.

Prevention of Urinary Stones With Hydration (PUSH)

A randomized clinical trial to investigate the impact of increased fluid intake and increased urine output on the recurrence rate of urinary stone disease (USD) in adults and children. The primary aim of the trial is to determine whether a multi‐component program of behavioral interventions to increase fluid intake will result in reduced risk of stone disease progression over a 2‐year period.

Tacrolimus/Everolimus vs. Tacrolimus/MMF in Pediatric Heart Transplant Recipients Using the MATE Score (TEAMMATE)

The TEAMMATE Trial will enroll 210 pediatric heart transplant patients from 25 centers at 6 months post-transplant and follow each patient for 2.5 years. Half of the participants will receive everolimus and low-dose tacrolimus and the other half will receive tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil. The trial will determine which treatment is better at reducing the cumulative risk of coronary artery vasculopathy, chronic kidney disease and biopsy proven-acute cellular rejection without an increase in graft loss due to all causes (e.g. infection, PTLD, antibody mediated rejection).

Study of Cabozantinib in Combination With Atezolizumab to Subjects With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors

This is a multicenter Phase 1b, open-label study to assess safety, tolerability, preliminary efficacy, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of cabozantinib taken in combination with atezolizumab in subjects with multiple tumor types, including advanced urothelial carcinoma (UC) (including bladder, renal pelvis, ureter, urethra), renal cell carcinoma (RCC), castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), ovarian cancer (OC), endometrial cancer (EC), hepatocellular cancer (HCC), gastric cancer and gastroesophageal junction cancer (GC/GEJC), colorectal cancer (CRC), head and neck (H&N) cancer, and differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). The study consists of two stages: in the Dose Escalation Stage, an appropriate recommended cabozantinib dose for the combination with standard dosing regimen of atezolizumab will be established; in the Expansion Stage, tumor-specific cohorts will be enrolled in order to further evaluate the safety and efficacy of the combination treatment in these tumor indications. Two exploratory single-agent cabozantinib (SAC) cohorts will also be enrolled with UC or NSCLC subjects.
