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.

Preventing Metabolic Side Effects of Thiazide Diuretics With KMgCitrate

Chlorthalidone (CTD) may produce various metabolic disturbances, including hypokalemia, activation of Renin-Angiotensin- Aldosterone (RAA) system, oxidative stress, dyslipidemia, Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) synthesis, and magnesium depletion. These factors may interact with each other to contribute to the development of insulin resistances and metabolic syndrome. Smaller studies have suggested that Potassium magnesium Citrate (KMgCit) can ameliorate CTD- induced metabolic side effects independent of correction of hypokalemia. This study will tests if KMgCit ameliorates CTD induced metabolic effects independent of correction of hypokalemia.

A Study to Test the Safety of the Investigational Drug Selitrectinib in Children and Adults That May Treat Cancer

This research study is done to test the safety of the new drug selitrectinib in children and adults with cancer having a change in a particular gene (NTRK1, NTRK2 or NTRK3). The drug may treat cancer by interfering with the effect of the NTRK genes on cancer growth. The study also investigates how the drug is absorbed and processed in the human body, and how well and for how long the cancer responds to the drug. This is the first study to test selitrectinib in humans with cancer, for whom no other effective therapy exists.

Androgen Reduction in Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, Phase 1

Children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency tend to have elevated circulating levels of androgens, which can accelerate skeletal maturation and adversely impact adult height. Additionally, these children require supraphysiologic doses of hydrocortisone to suppress secretion of adrenal androgen precursors, and this treatment can retard linear growth. This study seeks to use oral abiraterone acetate (Zytiga)as an adjunct to approved CAH therapy (oral hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone) for pre-pubescent children with classic 21-hydroxylase deficiency in order to reduce daily requirement of hydrocortisone. In this Phase 1 study, the investigators will determine the minimum effective dose of abiraterone acetate that normalizes androstenedione levels during the 7-day Treatment Period.

Inclusion Criteria 1. Biopsy-proven non-hematopoietic malignancy, except for small cell lung cancer, germ cell cancer, or unknown primary tumor. 2. Radiographic evidence by MRI (or by CT scan with CT contrast if ineligible or intolerant of MRI) of brain metastasis. (If patient is unable to tolerate MRI contrast, an MRI without contrast is acceptable if lesions are visible) 3. All brain metastases must be outside the brain stem (midbrain, pons and medulla). 4. Patient must have 10 or less brain metastases. 5. The maximum diameter of any lesion must be less than or equal to 3.0 cm. 6. Previous treatment with surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy or any targeted agents are allowed provided that:
• Radiation was not to the brain.
• Surgery to the brain was > 7 days prior to SRS and there remains at least one additional brain metastasis that can be targeted with SRS 7. Age ≥ 18 years. 8. ECOG Performance Score of 2 or better/Karnofsky Performance Status score of 50-60 or better. 9. All men, as well as women of child-bearing potential 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. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately. 10. A female of child-bearing potential is any woman (regardless of sexual orientation, 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). 11. Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent. Exclusion Criteria 1. Patients had craniotomy and surgery to the brain within 7 days from the date of SRS. 2. Patients with leptomeningeal metastasis. NOTE: For the purposes of exclusion, LMD is a clinical diagnosis, defined as positive CSF cytology and/or equivocal radiologic or clinical evidence of leptomeningeal involvement. Patients with leptomeningeal symptoms in the setting of leptomeningeal enhancement by imaging (MRI) would be considered to have LMD even in the absence of positive CSF cytology, unless a parenchymal lesion can adequately explain the neurologic symptoms and/or signs. In contrast, an asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic patient with mild or nonspecific leptomeningeal enhancement (MRI) would not be considered to have LMD. In that patient, CSF sampling is not required to formally exclude LMD, but can be performed at the investigator's discretion based on level of clinical suspicion. 3. Patients with a contraindication to both MRI (with or without contrast) and CT scan (with contrast) 4. Patients with life expectancy < 3 months. 5. 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, in the opinion of the investigator, would limit compliance with study requirements. 6. Subjects must not be pregnant or nursing at the time of SRS treatment due to the potential for congenital abnormalities and the potential of this regimen to harm nursing infants.

Improving Chronic Disease Management With Pieces (ICD-Pieces)

ICD-Pieces (Parkland Intelligent e-Coordination and Evaluation System) trial is a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Healthcare Systems(HCS) Collaboratory demonstration project to improve management of patients with a triad of Chronic Kidney Disease, hypertension and diabetes with Pieces in four HCS including Parkland, Texas Health Resources (THR), ProHealth Physicians Incorporation and North Texas VA. Pieces is a decision support technology platform created by Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation(PCCI). The primary objective is to test the hypothesis that a collaborative model of primary care and subspecialty care intervention enhanced by Pieces and practice facilitators compared to standard clinical practice will reduce all-cause hospitalizations in patients with coexisting chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension. Secondary objectives are: a)Test if implementation of the collaborative model will reduce 30-day readmissions, emergency room visits, cardiovascular events or deaths and disease-specific hospitalizations; b) Develop and validate risk predictive models for disease-specific hospitalizations, all-cause hospitalizations, 30-day readmissions, emergency room visits, cardiovascular events and deaths for patients with chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension. c) Collect demographic and clinical data to assist phenotyping patients with chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension. d) Obtain safety data including Acute Kidney Injury, progression of chronic kidney disease, electrolyte disturbances and medication errors, and drug toxicity; e) Collect resource utilization information including hospitalizations, emergency room visits, outpatient visits, and diagnostic or therapeutic procedures completed. Candidate patients in selected clinics will be enrolled over a period of 2 years and followed for 12 months. Pieces will ascertain both primary and secondary outcomes from the Electronic Health Record supported with data from the Dallas Fort Worth Hospital Council (DFWHC), Accountable Care Organization (ACO) reports and VA database, and deaths from Social Security Index (SSI) data.

The Insulin-Only Bionic Pancreas Pivotal Trial

This multi-center randomized control trial (RCT) will compare efficacy and safety endpoints using the insulin-only configuration of the iLet Bionic Pancreas (BP) System versus Usual Care (UC) during a 13-week study period. Participants may be enrolled initially into a screening protocol and then transfer into the RCT protocol, or they may enter directly into the RCT protocol. The RCT will be followed by an Extension Phase in which the RCT Usual Care (UC) Group will use the insulin-only configuration of the iLet Bionic Pancreas System for 3 months. At the completion of use of the BP system (end of RCT for BP Group and end of Extension Phase for UC Group), participants will enter a 2-4 day Transition Phase and be randomly assigned to either transition back to their usual mode of therapy (MDI or pump therapy) based on therapeutic guidance from the iLet BP System or transition back to their usual mode of therapy based on what their own insulin regimens were prior to enrolling in the RCT.

A Research Study to Compare Two Types of Insulin, a New Insulin, Insulin Icodec and an Available Insulin, Insulin Glargine, in People With Type 2 Diabetes Who Have Not Used Insulin Before (ONWARDS 1)

This study compares insulin icodec (a new insulin taken once a week) to insulin glargine (an insulin taken once daily which is already available on the market) in people with type 2 diabetes. The study will look at how well insulin icodec taken weekly controls blood sugar compared to insulin glargine taken daily. Participants will either get insulin icodec that participants will have to inject once a week on the same day of the week or insulin glargine that participants will have to inject once a day at the same time every day. Which treatment participants get is decided by chance. The insulin is injected with a needle in a skin fold in the thigh, upper arm or stomach. The study will last for about 1 ½ years. Participants will have 37 clinic visits and 26 phone calls with the study doctor. At 11 clinic visits participant will have blood samples taken. At 8 clinic visits participants cannot eat or drink (except for water) for 8 hours before the visit. Participants will be asked to wear a sensor that measures the blood sugar all the time in 5 periods of about one month during the study (about 5 months in total). Women cannot take part if pregnant, breast-feeding or plan to become pregnant during the study period.

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.

Pathway to Prevention Study

RATIONALE The accrual of data from the laboratory and from epidemiologic and prevention trials has improved the understanding of the etiology and pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Genetic and immunologic factors play a key role in the development of T1DM, and characterization of the early metabolic abnormalities in T1DM is steadily increasing. However, information regarding the natural history of T1DM remains incomplete. The TrialNet Natural History Study of the Development of T1DM (Pathway to Prevention Study) has been designed to clarify this picture, and in so doing, will contribute to the development and implementation of studies aimed at prevention of and early treatment in T1DM. Purpose: TrialNet is an international network dedicated to the study, prevention, and early treatment of type 1 diabetes. TrialNet sites are located throughout the United States, Canada, Finland, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Australia, and New Zealand. TrialNet is dedicated to testing new approaches to the prevention of and early intervention for type 1 diabetes. The goal of the TrialNet Natural History Study of the Development of Type 1 Diabetes is to enhance our understanding of the demographic, immunologic, and metabolic characteristics of individuals at risk for developing type 1 diabetes. The Natural History Study will screen relatives of people with type 1 diabetes to identify those at risk for developing the disease. Relatives of people with type 1 diabetes have about a 5% percent chance of being positive for the antibodies associated with diabetes. TrialNet will identify adults and children at risk for developing diabetes by testing for the presence of these antibodies in the blood. A positive antibody test is an early indication that damage to insulin-secreting cells may have begun. If this test is positive, additional testing will be offered to determine the likelihood that a person may develop diabetes. Individuals with antibodies will be offered the opportunity for further testing to determine their risk of developing diabetes over the next 5 years and to receive close monitoring for the development of diabetes.

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.

A Heart Disease Study of Semaglutide in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes (SOUL)

The researchers are doing this study to look whether the type 2 diabetes medicine, semaglutide, has a positive effect on heart disease. Participants will either get semaglutide tablets or placebo tablets ("dummy" medicine) - which treatment is decided by chance. Participants must take one tablet with water every morning on an empty stomach and not eat or drink anything for at least 30 minutes. The study will last for about 3.5-5 years. Participants will have up to 25 clinic visits and 1 phone call with the study doctor. Women cannot be in the study if pregnant, breast-feeding or if they plan to become pregnant during the study period.

Research Study to Compare Three Doses of Semaglutide Tablets Taken Once Daily in People With Type 2 Diabetes (PIONEER PLUS)

This study compares three doses of once daily semaglutide tablets in people with type 2 diabetes who were previously treated with other oral anti-diabetic medicines. Participants will be initiated on the lowest starting dose of 3 mg and gradually increased until they reach the final trial dose of 14 mg, 25 mg or 50 mg once daily semaglutide tablets. The final three doses will be randomized (i.e., decided by chance). Participants will be administered one tablet per day for 68 weeks. Women cannot take part if they are pregnant, breast-feeding or planning to become pregnant during the study period. Women who can get pregnant will be checked for pregnancy via urine tests. Once daily semaglutide tablets (3 mg, 7 mg and 14 mg) are approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in the US, in the EU and in some other countries, under the brand name Rybelsus®.

Phase 2 Study of Orlistat and SLx-4090 for the Treatment of Type 1 Hyperlipoproteinemia

Funding Source - FDA OOPD This study is being done to find out whether an investigational (not approved by FDA ) drug called SLx-4090 or Orlistat (FDA approved medication for weight loss) when given alone or in combination can treat the high blood fat (elevated triglycerides)levels found in the condition Type 1 Hyperlipoproteinemia (T1HLP) better or more safely than low fat diet alone, the current standard medical care. It is also not clear whether Orlistat, that is FDA approved for weight loss, is effective in lowering blood fat levels in patients with Type 1 hyperlipoproteinemia (T1HLP). The researchers are interested in learning whether any one of these drugs when given alone or in combination is more effective and safe in treating T1HLP.

Genetic and Metabolic Disease in Children

This is a prospective, non-randomized, non-blinded observational study. The overarching goal is to discover new disease-associated genes in children, while establishing a specific focus on disorders where molecular characterization is most likely to lead to novel therapies. This study will merge detailed phenotypic characterization of patients presenting to the Pediatric Genetics and Metabolism Division in the Department of Pediatrics/Children's Medical Center at Dallas and collaborating clinics with Next-Generation sequencing techniques to identify disease-producing mutations. The primary objective of the study is to identify novel pathogenic mutations in children with rare Mendelian disorders. A secondary objective of the study is to establish normative ranges of a large number of metabolites from healthy newborns and older children.
