Effects of a Remote Patient Monitoring Protocol on Glycemic Control in Adolescents With Type 1 Diabetes

This study will use a randomized, crossover design. Children aged 13-18 years who have been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes for at least 1 year and with at least 2 Hemoglobin A1c values ≥10.0% more than 60 days apart within the past year, with the most recent HbA1c value between 10-14%, will be placed into two separate treatment groups. Group A will undergo home monitoring for 12 weeks through the use of the Vivify kit, which contains a wireless tablet with daily medication/diet/symptom questionnaires. Group B will initially continue diabetes management per standard of care, including quarterly office visits. After a period of 12 weeks, Group B will switch to the RPM protocol, while Group A will return to standard of care. Both groups will have HbA1c values checked at the 0, 3, and 6 month time periods to assess the effect of the remote monitoring protocol. Participation in the RPM protocol will involve daily completion of the Care Plan questions, as well as weekly uploads of blood glucose values using the Glooko, Inc (Mountain View, CA) application, and weekly video visits with a member of the endocrinology team that will aim to address barriers to optimal care, whether they be motivation, knowledge or other difficulties. Barriers to care will be assessed in part through the completion of knowledge and self-efficacy assessments.

Milrinone in Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

Infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) usually have pulmonary hypoplasia and persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) leading to hypoxemic respiratory failure (HRF). Pulmonary hypertension associated with CDH is frequently resistant to conventional pulmonary vasodilator therapy including inhaled nitric oxide (iNO). Increased pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) can lead to right ventricular overload and dysfunction. In patients with CDH, left ventricular dysfunction, either caused by right ventricular overload or a relative underdevelopment of the left ventricle, is associated with poor prognosis. Milrinone is an intravenous inotrope and lusitrope (enhances cardiac systolic contraction and diastolic relaxation respectively) with pulmonary vasodilator properties and has been shown anecdotally to improve oxygenation in PPHN. Milrinone is commonly used during the management of CDH although no randomized trials have been performed to test its efficacy. Thirty percent of infants with CDH in the Children's Hospital Neonatal Database (CHND) and 22% of late-preterm and term infants with CDH in the Pediatrix database received milrinone. In the recently published VICI trial, 84% of patients with CDH received a vasoactive medication. In the current pilot trial, neonates with an antenatal or postnatal diagnosis of CDH will be randomized to receive milrinone or placebo to establish safety of this medication in CDH and test its efficacy in improving oxygenation.

•Revatio) at the time of randomization. In addition, initiation of therapy with these two classes of parenteral medications during the first 24 hours of study drug initiation is not permitted and will be considered a protocol deviation. The risk of systemic hypotension is high during the first 24 hours of study-drug (milrinone) infusion and hence parenteral administration of other pulmonary vasodilators is avoided to minimize risk of hypotension.
• Subjects already on ECMO or patients who are being actively considered for ECMO by the neonatal or surgical team
• attending (neonatal, critical care or surgical) refusal for participation in the trial (including concern about presence of hemodynamic instability)

Response-Based Chemotherapy in Treating Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome in Younger Patients With Down Syndrome

This phase III trial studies response-based chemotherapy in treating newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome in younger patients with Down syndrome. Drugs used in chemotherapy 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. Response-based chemotherapy separates patients into different risk groups and treats them according to how they respond to the first course of treatment (Induction I). Response-based treatment may be effective in treating acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome in younger patients with Down syndrome while reducing the side effects.

Cerebral Oxygenation and Autoregulation in Preterm Infants (Early NIRS)

Premature infants are at high risk for variations in blood pressure and oxygenation during the first few days of life. The immaturity of the premature brain may further predispose these infants to death or the development of neurologic problems. The relationship between unstable blood pressure and oxygen levels and brain injury has not been well elucidated. This study investigates the utility of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), a non-invasive oxygen-measuring device, to identify preterm infants at highest risk for brain injury or death.

Follow-up Visit of High Risk Infants (FU)

The NICHD Neonatal Research Network's Follow-Up study is a multi-center cohort in which surviving extremely low birth-weight infants born in participating network centers receive neurodevelopmental, neurosensory and functional assessments at 22-26 months corrected age (Infants born prior to July 1, 2012 were seen at 18-22 months corrected age). Data regarding pregnancy and neonatal outcome are collected prospectively. The goal is to identify potential maternal and neonatal risk factors that may affect infant neurodevelopment.

Optimizing Individual Nutrition in Preterm Very Low Birth Weight Infants

In preterm infants fed human milk, milk needs to be fortified to meet nutrient recommendations. Fortification can be 1) standard, 2) individualized (adjusted based on daily human milk nutrient analysis and milk volume), or 3) optimized (adjusted based on growth rate and serum analyses). The first specific aim will determine whether individualized and optimized nutrition during hospitalization results in improved growth in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in extremely low gestational age (GA) neonates (ELGANs, <29 weeks) and in small for GA (SGA, birth weight <10th percentile for GA) preterm infants compared with optimized nutrition. The second specific aim will determine whether individualized and optimized nutrition in the NICU improves neurodevelopmental outcomes (acquisition of development milestones) and reduces the risk of disproportionate growth (i.e., excess fat) in the NICU and findings suggestive of metabolic syndrome in the first 3 years of life.

Preemie Hypothermia for Neonatal Encephalopathy

This study is a randomized, controlled trial to assess safety and effectiveness of whole body hypothermia for 72 hours in preterm infants 33-35 weeks gestational age (GA) who present at <6 hours postnatal age with moderate to severe neonatal encephalopathy (NE). The study will enroll infants with signs of NE at 18 NICHD Neonatal Research Network sites, and randomly assign them to either receive hypothermia or participate in a non-cooled control group.

Determining an Optimal Weaning Method of Nasal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure in Preterm Neonates

The purpose of this study is to determine an optimal strategy to wean nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) in preterm babies. The investigators hypothesize that babies that are taken off NCPAP at lower settings will need fewer total days on NCPAP than those babies taken off at higher settings.
