Negative Pressure Wound Therapy as a Drug Delivery System (ADANPWT) (ADA NPWT)

The investigators plan a randomized clinical trial of 150 patients with infected diabetes-related lower extremity wounds to compare the clinical and economic effectiveness of negative pressure wound therapy with continuous irrigation and negative pressure wound therapy without irrigation. The investigators will enroll 150 patients from two centers: The University of Texas Southwestern University Hospital and Parkland Hospital. The investigators will screen and enroll patients with wounds in the inpatient setting. Patients will randomized to receive traditional NPWT or NPWT with continuous irrigation while they are hospitalized. The average hospitalization for patents that receive NPWT is 13.3 days. Patients that do not have their wound surgically closed during hospitalization will be discharged with negative pressure wound therapy without irrigation for up to a total of four weeks of therapy. After discharge from the hospital, subjects will be seen twice weekly by home health, and the investigators will evaluate subjects in clinic every 7 days (±7 days) for a total of 16-week period or until the wound heals.

Study of Glembatumumab Vedotin in gpNMB-Expressing, Advanced or Metastatic SCC of the Lung (PrE0504)

Patients with advanced or metastatic, gpNMB-expressing Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) of the lung who have failed a prior platinum-based chemotherapy regimen will receive glembatumumab vedotin. Glembatumumab vedotin consists of an antibody (a type of human protein) attached to a drug called Monomethyl Auristatin E (MMAE) that can kill cancer cells. Glembatumumab vedotin is intended to work by specifically directing the drug to the cancer cell. It attaches to a molecule on the cancer cell called gpNMB, and then releases the MMAE inside the tumor cell, which in turn causes the cell to die. The purpose of this study is to see whether glembatumumab vedotin is effective in treating people who have advanced or metastatic squamous cell lung cancer that contains gpNMB, to examine how the body handles the drug and the side effects associated with glembatumumab vedotin.

Safety Study of Gene Modified Donor T-cells Following Partially Mismatched Stem Cell Transplant

This study will evaluate patients with blood cell cancers who are going to have an allogeneic (donor) blood stem cell transplant from a partially matched relative. The research study will test whether immune cells, called T cells, which come from the donor relative and are specially grown in the laboratory and then given back to the patient along with the stem cell transplant (T cell addback), can help the immune system recover faster after the transplant. As a safety measure, these T cells have been "programmed" with a "self-destruct switch" so that if, after they have been given to the patient, the T cells start to react against the tissues (called "graft versus host" disease, GVHD), the T cells can be destroyed.

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy and Vertebroplasty in Treating Patients With Localized Spinal Metastasis

RATIONALE: Stereotactic body radiation therapy may be able to send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue. Vertebroplasty may help prevent fractures and spinal cord compression caused by spinal metastasis. Giving stereotactic body radiation therapy together with vertebroplasty may help lessen pain and improve quality of life of patients with spinal metastasis. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving stereotactic body radiation therapy together with vertebroplasty works in treating patients with localized spinal metastasis.

Chemotherapy Followed by Radiation Therapy in Treating Younger Patients With Newly Diagnosed Localized Central Nervous System Germ Cell Tumors

Drugs used as chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, etoposide, and ifosfamide work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays to kill tumor cells. Giving chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. This phase II trial studies how well chemotherapy and radiation therapy work in treating younger patients with newly diagnosed central nervous system germ cell tumors.

Inclusion Criteria for Enrollment (Screening):
• Subjects must be aged 2 weeks or older.
• Hospitalization due to signs and symptoms of influenza (decision for hospitalization will be up to the individual treating clinician).
• Study plasma available on-site or available within 24 hours after randomization.
• Not previously screened nor randomized in this study. Inclusion Criteria for Randomization:
• Locally determined positive test for influenza A (by polymerase chain reaction [PCR], other nucleic acid testing, or by rapid Ag) from a specimen obtained less than or equal to 48 hours prior to randomization.
• Onset of illness less than or equal to 6 days before randomization, defined as when the subject first experienced at least one respiratory symptom or fever.
• Hospitalized due to influenza, with anticipated hospitalization for more than 24 hours after randomization. Criteria for hospitalization will be up to the individual treating clinician.
• Willingness to have blood and respiratory samples obtained and stored.
• Willingness to return for all required study visits and participate in study follow up.
• National Early Warning (NEW) score greater than or equal to 3 within 12 hours prior to randomization (or PEW [pediatric early warning] score greater than or equal to 3 within 12 hours prior to randomization).
• ABO-compatible plasma available on-site or available within 24 hours after randomization. Exclusion Criteria for Randomization:
• Strong clinical evidence in the judgment of the site investigator that the etiology of illness is primarily bacterial super-infection in origin. Co-infection would be allowed, as there may be benefit to resolving influenza illness faster. Super-infection, where influenza illness occurred and is resolving, and new bacterial illness causing deterioration should be excluded.
• Prior treatment with any anti-influenza investigational drug, intravenous immune globulin (IVIG), or plasma therapy within 30 days prior to screening. Other investigational drug therapies (non-influenza) are allowed.
• History of allergic reaction to blood or plasma products (as judged by the site investigator).
• A pre-existing condition or use of a medication that, in the opinion of the site investigator, may place the individual at a substantially increased risk of thrombosis (e.g., cryoglobulinemia, severe refractory hypertriglyceridemia, or clinically significant monoclonal gammopathy). Prior IVIG use alone would not meet exclusion criteria, but the investigator should consider the potential for a hyper-coagulable state.
• Subjects who, in the judgment of the site investigator, will be unlikely to comply with the requirements of this protocol, including being uncontactable following discharge from hospital.
• Medical conditions for which receipt of 500-600 mL of intravenous fluid may be dangerous to the subject (e.g., decompensated congestive heart failure).

Pembrolizumab in Anaplastic/Undifferentiated Thyroid Cancer

This study is being done because there are currently no approved and no commonly working targeted therapies in anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC). This is an area of urgent need for patients, not just for approved treatments but also rationally-designed clinical trials designed specifically for ATC. Patients diagnosed with anaplastic thyroid cancer have a very high likelihood of dying because of their disease. As such there is a clear need for improving therapy for ATC.

Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy in Treating Young Patients With Newly Diagnosed, Previously Untreated, High-Risk Medulloblastoma

This randomized phase III trial studies different chemotherapy and radiation therapy regimens to compare how well they work in treating young patients with newly diagnosed, previously untreated, high-risk medulloblastoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vincristine sulfate, cisplatin, cyclophosphamide, 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. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells. Isotretinoin may help chemotherapy work better by making tumor cells more sensitive to the drugs. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Carboplatin may make tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is not yet known which chemotherapy and radiation therapy regimen is more effective in treating brain tumors.

Brentuximab Vedotin and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Children and Young Adults With Stage IIB or Stage IIIB-IVB Hodgkin Lymphoma

This randomized phase III trial studies brentuximab vedotin and combination chemotherapy to see how well they work compared to combination chemotherapy alone in treating children and young adults with stage IIB or stage IIIB-IVB Hodgkin lymphoma. Combinations of biological substances in brentuximab vedotin may be able to carry cancer-killing substances directly to Hodgkin lymphoma cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, bleomycin sulfate, vincristine sulfate, etoposide, prednisone, and cyclophosphamide, 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. It is not yet known if combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without brentuximab vedotin in treating Hodgkin lymphoma.

Established Status Epilepticus Treatment Trial (ESETT)

The primary objective is to determine the most effective and/or the least effective treatment of benzodiazepine-refractory status epilepticus (SE) among patients older than 2 years. There are three active treatment arms being compared: fosphenytoin (FOS),levetiracetam (LEV), and valproic acid (VPA). The second objective is comparison of three drugs with respect to secondary outcomes. The final objective is to ensure that the trial is informative for treatment of established SE in children by describing the effectiveness, safety, and rate of adverse reactions of these drugs in children.

Inclusion Criteria:
1. Is male or female <2 years of age at the time of surgery. 2. Must weigh at least 3 kg. 3. Is scheduled to have a surgical procedure for which opioid analgesia will be needed to manage postoperative pain for at least 18 hours following intraoperative and/or postoperative IV analgesia. 4. Is generally healthy as documented by medical history; physical examination (including, but not limited to, the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, respiratory, and central nervous systems); vital sign assessments; 12-lead electrocardiograms (EKGs); clinical laboratory assessments; and general observations. Any abnormalities or deviations from the acceptable range that might be considered clinically relevant by the study physician or investigator will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, agreed upon by the Principal Investigator (or sub-investigator), and documented in study files before enrolling the subject in the study. 5. The subject's parent or guardian has been informed of the nature of the study and has provided written informed consent. Postoperative: 6. Is anticipated to require an analgesic regimen using a short-acting opioid (non-oxycodone and non-oxymorphone) analgesic after surgery (according to standard of care (SOC) as defined in the protocol). 7. Is an inpatient expected to be hospitalized for 24 hours after dosing with study drug. 8. Has an indwelling access catheter for blood sampling. 9. Has demonstrated the ability to tolerate clear fluids following surgery according to the SOC at each institution. All infants and children should be able to demonstrate strong suck and swallow reflexes and neurologic alertness and stability sufficient to handle oral secretions. The ability to tolerate small amounts (1 to 2 oz.) of clear liquids without emesis (over 30 to 60 minutes) would support readiness for study participation and oral intake once the physician has ordered the diet advanced to clear liquids and the subject has ingested fluids by mouth without nausea or vomiting.
Exclusion Criteria:
1. Has the presence or history of a clinically significant disorder involving the cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, immunologic, hematologic, endocrine, or nervous system(s) or psychiatric disease that would contraindicate participation, as determined by the Investigator. 2. Has any clinical laboratory test result outside the accepted range that has been confirmed upon re-examination and deemed to be clinically significant. 3. Has a clinically significant illness or condition any time before dosing with study drug that would contraindicate participation, as determined by the Investigator. 4. Has a life expectancy <8 weeks. 5. For age groups A and B: Has a malabsorption, gastroenterologic, or abdominal condition that would interfere with the absorption of study drug. 6. Has evidence of increased intracranial pressure. 7. Has a respiratory condition requiring intubation or resulting in active bronchiolitis, asthma, stridor, or difficulty breathing due to congestion and increased nasal secretions, including oxygen (O2) saturation ≤92%. 8. Has a history of seizures. 9. Subject (and/or mother if subject is nursing) has used medications with actions characteristic of monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) within 14 days before the start of the study drug is prohibited. Standard daily pediatric multivitamins may be taken until enrollment into the study but will be restricted during the study. 10. Subject (and/or mother if subject is nursing) has received preoperative opioids for more than 72 consecutive hours. 11. Subject (and/or mother if subject is nursing) has received oxycodone or oxymorphone within 48 hours prior to screening. 12. Subject (and/or mother if subject is nursing) has ingested caffeine- or xanthine-containing products (eg, theophylline) within 48 hours before dosing. These products are also prohibited during periods when blood samples are collected. 13. Has a history of relevant drug allergies, food allergies, or both (ie, allergy to oxymorphone or other opioid analgesics) that could interfere with the study. 14. Parent or legal guardian is unable to provide consent for any reason (eg, mental or physical disabilities, language barriers, or is unavailable). 15. Subject (and/or mother if subject is nursing) has participated in a clinical study of an unapproved drug within the previous 30 days. 16.
