Comparing Virtual Reality (VR) to Non-VR for Decreasing Preoperative/Procedural Anxiety

The primary objective of the study is to utilize the modified Yale Preoperative Anxiety scale (mYPAS), a validated preoperative/procedural anxiety score, to measure preoperative anxiety via distraction in pediatric oncology patients undergoing port access. The hypothesis is that using Virtual Reality (VR) will objectively decrease anxiety scores measured by mYPAS by five percent (primary outcome). The secondary outcome will be the parents or the legally authorized representative (LAR) subjective reports of anxiety with the use of VR. The Kind VR device is used in house at Children's Health in the Dallas and Plano campuses. The VR device used in this study qualifies as exempt from FDA IDE regulations. It is a non-significant risk, non-invasive, interactive video device the user wears like goggles. The study carries minimal risks to the subjects and is designed to minimize patient discomfort from placement or motion sickness. Furthermore, the device has disposable covers for protection against infection and can be sanitized between uses, once the disposable covers are removed. Children's Health System of Texas (CHST) and this research group are not partnering entities with the Kind VR, and the Kind VR device is not being studied. The effect of virtual reality (VR) on preprocedural anxiety as measured by questionnaires and the observations of the modified Yale Preoperative Anxiety Scale (mYPAS) is being studied Most patients coming to the Clinic of Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) are under chronic care for their ongoing disease and are likely to be coming to the CCBD at least twice in a 6-month period. The CCBD schedule will be reviewed by the researchers for patients age 5-12, requiring port access at least twice during the next six-month period. Patient families whose child meets the basic screening criteria, and have no exclusion criteria, will be approached privately as possible participants in the study. Up to 100 subjects will be enrolled over a 2-year period. Once the subject/parent or LAR agrees to participate, study staff will randomize the subjects into which standard of care distraction method for anxiety management they will receive first in this study.

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.

• To be eligible for inclusion in the annual screening regimen one of the following three conditions must be met in addition to the eligibility criteria above:
• Patients are pre-menopausal; OR
• Post-menopausal aged 45-69 with any of the following three risks factors:
• Dense breasts (BIRADS density categories c-heterogeneously dense or d-extremely dense), or
• Family history of breast cancer (first degree relative with breast cancer), or, positive genetic testing for any deleterious genes that indicate an increased risk for breast cancer, or
• Currently on hormone therapy; OR
• Post-menopausal ages 70-74 with either of the following two risk factors:
• Dense breasts (BIRADS density categories c-heterogeneously dense or d-extremely dense), or
• Currently on hormone therapy
• Postmenopausal women are defined as those with their last menstrual period more than 12 months prior to study entry; for the purpose of defining menopausal status for women who have had surgical cessation of their periods, women who no longer have menses due to hysterectomy and oophorectomy will be considered postmenopausal; women who no longer have menses due to hysterectomy without oophorectomy will be considered premenopausal until age 52 and postmenopausal thereafter
• All other postmenopausal women are eligible for inclusion in the biennial screening regimen
• For those women who cannot be assigned to annual or biennial screening at the time of study entry and randomization because they are postmenopausal, have no family history or known deleterious breast cancer mutation, are not on hormone therapy AND have not had a prior mammogram, breast density will be determined by the radiologist?s recording of it at the time of interpretation of the first study screening examination, either DM or TM; for those who are randomized to TM, radiologists will assign BI-RADS density through review of the DM or synthetic DM portion of the TM examination; such women cannot be part of the planned stratification by screening frequency and are expected to represent far less than 1% of the Tomosynthesis Mammographic Imaging Screening Trial (TMIST) population
• Breast density will be determined by prior mammography reports, when available; all other risk factors used to determine patient eligibility for annual or biennial screening will be determined by subject self-report

Investigation to Minimize Prolapse Recurrence of the Vagina Using Estrogen (IMPROVE)

This study randomizes postmenopausal women with symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse planning native tissue transvaginal surgical repair to 6-8 weeks of preoperative and 1-year continued postoperative vaginal estrogen cream compared to placebo cream. This clinical trial and basic science investigation are designed to understand the mechanisms by which local estrogen treatment affects connective tissues of the pelvic floor and determine whether its use before and after prolapse repair will (i) improve success rates of the surgical intervention and minimize prolapse recurrence and (ii) impact favorably upon symptoms of other pelvic floor disorders.

Radiation Therapy With or Without Chemotherapy in Patients With Stage I-IIA Cervical Cancer Who Previously Underwent Surgery

This randomized phase III trial studies radiation therapy with chemotherapy to see how well they work compared to radiation therapy alone in treating patients with stage I-IIA cervical cancer who previously underwent surgery. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, 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 radiation therapy together with chemotherapy is more effective than radiation therapy alone in treating patients with cervical cancer.

Semaglutide Effects on Heart Disease and Stroke in Patients With Overweight or Obesity (SELECT)

The researchers are doing the study to see if semaglutide may reduce the risk of having cardiovascular events in patients with overweight or obesity and with prior cardiovascular disease. The participant will either get semaglutide (active medicine) or placebo ("dummy" medicine). Which treatment the participants get is decided by chance. The participant's chance of getting semaglutide or placebo is the same. The participant will get the study medicine in a pen. The participants will need to use the pen to inject the study medicine in a skinfold once a week. The study will last for about 2.5 to 5 years. Participants will have up to 25 clinic visits with the study doctor.

A Study of TAS-120 in Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer

The purpose of the trial is to evaluate a patient's response to a Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor (FGFR) inhibitor, futibatinib (TAS-120), used either alone or in combination with the hormonal therapy, fulvestrant. This study will be conducted in patients with metastatic breast cancer who have specific Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor gene abnormalities and who have previously received conventional therapies to treat their breast cancer, or who are not able to tolerate certain cancer therapies. This study will also evaluate the safety of taking futibatinib, or futibatinib and fulvestrant, by learning about the potential side effects.

Inclusion Criteria:

• Patients must have histologically confirmed malignancy that is radiologically evaluable and metastatic or unresectable. Eligible tumor types include solid tumors and malignancies in which there is known evidence of clinical activity for single agent PD-1 or PD-L1 antibodies. Nivolumab is Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved for the treatment of melanoma, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), Merkel cell cancer, bladder cancer, renal cell carcinoma (RCC), gastric cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), cervical cancer, head and neck cancer, Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), metastatic small cell lung cancer (SCLC), and any solid tumor with microsatellite instability (MSI)-high status confirmed. Patients with HL are eligible but must follow standard response criteria. Additional tumor types may be eligible on a case by case basis upon discussion with principal investigator (PI)
• Patients who have previously received other forms of immunotherapy (high-dose [HD] IL-2, IFN, CTLA-4) are allowed. Patients must not have received cytokine immunotherapy for at least 4 weeks before nivolumab administration. Patients who have received prior anti-CTLA4 will be allowed and the washout period is 6 weeks
• Age >= 18 years; children are excluded from this study but may be eligible for future pediatric phase 1 combination trials
• Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 to 2 (Karnofsky >= 60)
• Life expectancy of greater than 12 weeks
• Leukocytes >= 2,000/mcL
• Absolute neutrophil count >= 1,500/mcL
• Platelets >= 100,000/mcL
• Total bilirubin =< 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN)
• Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) (serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase [SGOT])/alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase [SGPT]) =< 2.5 x institutional ULN unless the patient has dermatomyositis and in the opinion of the investigator the elevation is due to diabetes mellitus (DM)
• Creatinine ULN OR glomerular filtration rate (GFR) >= 30 mL/min (if using the Cockcroft-Gault formula)
• Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients on effective antiretroviral therapy with undetectable viral load within 6 months are eligible for this trial
• If evidence of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, HBV viral load must be undetectable on suppressive therapy if indicated
• If history of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, must be treated with undetectable HCV viral load
• Patients with treated brain metastases are eligible if there is no evidence of progression for at least 4 weeks after central nervous system (CNS)-directed treatment, as ascertained by clinical examination and brain imaging (magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] or computed tomography [CT] scan) during the screening period. Patients with new or progressive brain metastases (active brain metastases) or leptomeningeal disease are eligible if the treating physician determines that immediate CNS specific treatment is not required and is unlikely to be required for at least 4 weeks (or scheduled assessment after the first cycle of treatment), and a risk-benefit analysis (discussion) by the patient and the investigator favors participation in the clinical trial
• The effects of nivolumab on the developing human fetus are unknown. For this reason, women of child-bearing potential (WOCBP) and men must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry and for the duration of study participation. WOCBP receiving nivolumab will be instructed to adhere to contraception for a period of 5 months after the last dose of investigational product. Men receiving nivolumab and who are sexually active with WOCBP will be instructed to adhere to contraception for a period of 7 months after the last dose of investigational product. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test (minimum sensitivity 25 IU/L or equivalent units of human chorionic gonadotropin [HCG]) within 24 hours prior to the start of nivolumab. Women must not be breastfeeding. Women who are not of childbearing potential (i.e., who are postmenopausal or surgically sterile as well as azoospermic men) do not require contraception. WOCBP 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. These durations have been calculated using the upper limit of the half-life for nivolumab (25 days) and are based on the protocol requirement that WOCBP use contraception for 5 half-lives plus 30 days, and men who are sexually active with WOCBP use contraception for 5 half-lives plus 90 days. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while she or her partner is participating in this study, she (or the participating partner) should inform the treating physician immediately
• Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document
Exclusion Criteria:

• Patients who have had chemotherapy or radiotherapy within 4 weeks (6 weeks for nitrosoureas or mitomycin C) prior to entering the study or those who have not recovered from adverse events (AEs) due to agents administered more than 4 weeks earlier have not resolved or stabilized. Palliative (limited-field) radiation therapy (RT) is permitted, if all of the following criteria are met:
• Repeat imaging demonstrates no new sites of bone metastases
• The lesion being considered for palliative radiation is not a target lesion
• Patients with prior therapy with an anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1
• Patients with prior allogeneic hematologic transplant
• Patients who are receiving any other investigational agents
• Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements
• Patients who have had evidence of active or acute diverticulitis, intra-abdominal abscess, gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding, obstruction, and abdominal carcinomatosis which are known risk factors for bowel perforation should be evaluated for the potential need for additional treatment before coming on study. For the IBD (UC and CD) cohort, an endoscopic assessment, disease activity index, and disease specific inclusion/exclusion criteria will substitute for these factors in determining eligibility with the exception of abdominal carcinomatosis, which should prompt further evaluation

Comparison of Standard of Care Treatment With a Triplet Combination of Targeted Immunotherapeutic Agents

This phase II trial studies the possible benefits of treatment with different combinations of the drugs durvalumab, olaparib and cediranib vs. the usual treatment in patients with ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer that has come back after a period of improvement with platinum therapy (recurrent platinum resistant). Usual treatment is the type of treatment most patients with this condition receive if they are not part of a clinical study. Combination therapies studied in this trial include MEDI4736 (durvalumab) plus olaparib and cediranib, durvalumab and cediranib, or olaparib and cediranib. Monoclonal antibodies, such as durvalumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumors cells to grow and spread. Olaparib is an inhibitor of PARP, an enzyme that helps repair deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) when it becomes damaged. Blocking PARP may help keep cancer cells from repairing their damaged DNA, causing them to die. PARP inhibitors are a type of targeted therapy. Cediranib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking VEGF (an enzyme). needed for cell growth. Giving different combinations of durvalumab, olaparib and cediranib may work better in increasing the duration of time that the cancer does not progress compared to the usual treatment.

Research Study to Investigate How Well Semaglutide Works in People Living With Heart Failure and Obesity (STEP-HFpEF)

This study will look at how the participants daily life is affected by their heart failure. The study will also look at the change in participants body weight from the start to the end of the study. This is to compare the effect on heart failure symptoms and on body weight in people taking semaglutide (a new medicine) to people taking "dummy" medicine. Participants will either get semaglutide or "dummy" medicine - which treatment participants get is decided by chance. Participants will need to take 1 injection once a week. The study medicine is injected with a thin needle in a skin fold in the stomach area, thigh or upper arm. During the study participants will have talks with the study staff about healthy lifestyle choices including healthy food and physical activity. The study will last for approximately 59 weeks. Participants will have 11 clinic visits and 1 phone call with the study doctor. Women: Women cannot take part if they are pregnant, breast-feeding or plan to become pregnant during the study period.

Daily Adaptive Radiation Therapy an Individualized Approach for Carcinoma of the Cervix (ARTIA-Cervix)

This is a single-arm, prospective, Phase II, multi-center clinical trial designed to demonstrate that adaptive radiotherapy for locally advanced cervical cancer will translate into a decreased rate of acute gastrointestinal toxicity compared with the historically reported rate for non-adaptive intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). The timepoint for this assessment will be at week 5 of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and will use the Patient-Reported Outcomes version of the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (PRO-CTCAE).

A Neurosteroid Intervention for Menopausal and Perimenopausal Depression

HYPOTHESIS: Pregnenolone administration will be associated with greater reduction in depressive symptom severity than placebo in women with current mMDD. STUDY AIMS: Primary Aim: Determine if pregnenolone is associated with greater reduction in depressive symptom severity than placebo in women with mMDD, as measured by MADRS. Secondary Aims: 1. Determine if pregnenolone is associated with greater reduction in anxiety symptom severity than placebo in women with mMDD. 2. Determine if pregnenolone is associated with greater improvement in cognition than placebo in women with mMDD. 3. Determine if pregnenolone is associated with greater improvement in quality of life than placebo in women with mMDD. 4. Determine if pregnenolone is associated with greater improvement in vasomotor symptoms of menopause than placebo. Mechanistic Aims: 1. Determine whether changes in neurosteroid levels with pregnenolone mediate clinical response. 2. Determine if baseline neurosteroid levels predict pregnenolone response. 3. Determine whether depressive symptoms, anxiety, sleep or vasomotor symptoms improve first. A crossed-lagged panel model will explore serial correlations between changes in outcome measures.

The experimental [18F]FLT-PET/CT will be completed before initiation of chemotherapy at either diagnosis or initiation of salvage chemotherapy at relapse and prior to the third cycle (or month) of chemotherapy. Laboratory analysis and correlative radiology, as directed per clinical care based on the primary diagnosis, are required within 30 days of the baseline [18F]FLT PET/CT. Follow-up will comprise 24 months of standard practice treatment and follow up.

Medically acceptable birth control (contraceptives) includes: 1) approved hormonal contraceptives (such as birth control pills, patch or ring; Depo-Provera, Implanon), or 2) barrier methods (such as a condom or diaphragm) used with a spermicide (a substance that kills sperm). A female of child-bearing potential is any woman (regardless of sexual orientation, marital status, having undergone a tubal ligation, or remaining celibate by choice) who meets the following criteria:
• Has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy; or
• Has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 12 consecutive months (i.e., has had menses at any time in the preceding 12 consecutive months)
Exclusion Criteria:
1. Prior radiation treatment to the pelvis. 2. Subjects may not be receiving any other investigational agents for the treatment of the cancer under study. 3.

• Active infection requiring systemic therapy, known HIV infection, or positive test for hepatitis B surface antigen or hepatitis C (antibody screen and if positive confirmed by RNA analysis). If positive results are not indicative of a true active or chronic infection, the patient can be enrolled after discussion with and agreement by the Investigator.
• Any other acute or chronic medical or psychiatric condition or laboratory abnormality that could increase the risk associated with trial participation or trial drug administration or could interfere with the interpretation of trial results and, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into the trial.
• Evidence of acute or chronic infection on screening chest radiography.

Characterizing the Microbiome in Postmenopausal Women With Vulvar Lichen Sclerosus

Vulvar lichen sclerosus (LS) is a chronic inflammatory disease, often diagnosed at late stages after scarring has obliterated normal vulvar architecture and severely affected a woman's quality of life. First line therapy for vulvar LS is ultrapotent topical steroids. If left untreated, this condition can cause complete stenosis of the vaginal introitus and 5% of patients may develop squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Lichen sclerosus is more common in pre-pubertal children and in post-menopausal women suggesting that hormonal shifts may contribute to disease pathogenesis. Small studies in children with LS have also shown that the microbiome is altered in LS. Little is known about the skin microbiota in postmenopausal patients with vulvar LS. To determine if the microbiome is altered in vulvar skin of postmenopausal patients with LS, this study will use 16s sequencing to broadly characterize the microbiota of vulvar skin with LS compared to control vulvar skin. The study team hypothesizes that patients with vulvar LS will have a unique vulvar microbial signature compared to age-matched controls. This study also seeks to elucidate differences in the vulvar microbiome of patients with LS after treatment of their underlying condition. The study team hypothesizes that the vulvar microbiome will change after treatment for vulvar LS. Vulvar dermatoses are an understudied area in dermatology with limited therapeutic options. Innumerable women often suffer in silence with vulvar LS. The long-term goal of this work is to understand factors that contribute to vulvar LS so that intervention may be undertaken before irreversible scarring and SCC develop.
