The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the MobiusHD System in a prospective, randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled multi-center pivotal study.
This study is a large, prospective, pragmatic, controlled comparison of patient-centric outcomes [quality of life (QOL), toxicity, and disease control] between parallel cohorts of men with prostate cancer treated simultaneously at proton therapy facilities and at geographically similar conventional (photon-based) radiation facilities using intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) techniques.
The purpose of the study is to compare patients with cardiogenic shock who receive standard therapy plus therapeutic hypothermia (TH) to patients with cardiogenic shock who receive standard medical therapy alone in order to assess the safety of TH in patients with cardiogenic shock. This study will also help understand the physiologic effects of TH in patients with cardiogenic shock. This will be a pilot study to establish the initial safety of TH and to assess tolerability of TH in this patient population.
The HeartMate PHP System is a temporary (<6 hours) ventricular assist device indicated for use during high-risk percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) performed electively or urgently in hemodynamically stable patients with severe coronary artery disease, when a heart team, including a cardiac surgeon, has determined high-risk PCI is the appropriate therapeutic option. Use of the HeartMate PHP Systems in these patients may prevent hemodynamic instability, which can result from repeat episodes of reversible myocardial ischemia that occur during planned temporary coronary occlusions and may reduce peri-and post-procedural adverse events.
In this research study we are studying the effects of the combination of lapatinib plus Herceptin in subjects with breast cancer that has spread outside of the breast. We are also studying whether positron emission tomography (PET/CT) scans can predict which participants will benefit from the study treatment. Finally, we are studying genes and proteins in the tumor tissue that may lead to sensitivity or resistance to Herceptin, and to the combination of Herceptin plus lapatinib. Lapatinib is a compound that may stop cancer cells from growing. Other research studies suggest that lapatinib in combination with Herceptin may help to shrink or stabilize breast cancer.
This phase II trial studies how well reduced doses of radiation therapy to the brain and spine (craniospinal) and chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed type of brain tumor called WNT)/Wingless (WNT)-driven medulloblastoma. Recent studies using chemotherapy and radiation therapy have been shown to be effective in treating patients with WNT-driven medulloblastoma. However, there is a concern about the late side effects of treatment, such as learning difficulties, lower amounts of hormones, or other problems in performing daily activities. Radiotherapy uses high-energy radiation from x-rays to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, vincristine sulfate, cyclophosphamide and lomustine, 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 reduced craniospinal radiation therapy and chemotherapy may kill tumor cells and may also reduce the late side effects of treatment.
The drugs, lenalidomide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone, are approved by the FDA. They have not been approved in the combination for multiple myeloma or any other type of cancer. Bortezomib is currently approved by the FDA for the treatment of multiple myeloma. Lenalidomide is approved for use with dexamethasone for patients with multiple myeloma who have received at least one prior therapy and for the treatment of certain types of myelodysplastic syndrome (another type of cancer affecting the blood). Dexamethasone is commonly used, either alone, or in combination with other drugs, to treat multiple myeloma. Please note that Bortezomib and Lenalidomide are provided to patients participating in this trial at no charge. Melphalan and cyclophosphamide, the drugs used during stem cell collection and transplant, are also approved by the FDA. Melphalan is an FDA-approved chemotherapy for multiple myeloma and is used as a high-dose conditioning treatment prior to stem cell transplantation. Cyclophosphamide is used, either alone, or in combination with other drugs, to treat multiple myeloma. These drugs have been used in other multiple myeloma studies and information from those studies suggests that this combination of therapy may help to treat newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. In this research study, we are looking to explore the drug combination, lenalidomide, bortezomib and dexamethasone alone or when combined with autologous stem cell transplantation to see what side effects it may have and how well it works for treatment of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. Specifically, the objective of this trial is to determine if, in the era of novel drugs, high dose therapy (HDT) is still necessary in the initial management of multiple myeloma in younger patients. In this study, HDT as compared to conventional dose treatment would be considered superior if it significantly prolongs progression-free survival by at least 9 months or more, recognizing that particular subgroups may benefit more compared to others.
This is an open-label, Phase I, dose-escalation study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended phase two dose (RPTD), and evaluate the safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of ABBV-621 for participants with previously-treated solid tumors or hematologic malignancies.
The objective of the rFVIIa for Acute Hemorrhagic Stroke Administered at Earliest Time (FASTEST) Trial is to establish the first treatment for acute spontaneous ICH within a time window and subgroup of patients that is most likely to benefit. Our central hypothesis is that rFVIIa, administered within 120 minutes from onset with an identified subgroup of subjects most likely to benefit, will improve outcomes at 90 days as measured by the modified Rankin score (mRS) and decrease ongoing bleeding as compared to standard therapy
