Summary

Youth with one or more chronic diseases are at increased risk of further complications, disease, or even early death as they enter their adult years. Recent increases in both asthma and obesity among youth have led to high health care utilization, increased health-related complications, and expanded risks of subsequent cardiovascular disease burden. The research team will develop educational content in core areas (e.g., fatigue, physical activity) for Managing AsThma AnD Obesity Related Symptoms (MATADORS), an mHealth technology-enhanced nurse-guided intervention. Youth with asthma and obesity and their primary caregivers will participate in interviews to explore their perspectives on barriers, facilitators, needs, and preferences toward adopting health behaviors, medication adherence, disease awareness, symptom self-management behaviors, and utilization of a mobile smartphone platform. Additional details on content availability, delivery approaches, system needs, and functionality will be explored through semi-structured interview questions. Health care providers (physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, dietitians, and respiratory and exercise therapists) will be invited to participate in interviews to seek their input on patient-caregiver needs, priority clinical focal areas, recommendations for symptom self-management, and preferences for intervention delivery. Interview findings will be used to inform intervention and app design. Providing youth with strategies to enhance symptom self-management may result in decreased symptom prevalence, improved quality of life, and long-term reduction of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality as they move into adulthood.

Summary

This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Epstein-Barr Virus associated Post-Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder (EBV-PTLD). The investigational drug in this study is tabelecleucel. Tabelecleucel is a product containing special immune allogeneic cells, called EBV-Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (EBV-CTLs), that are made in the laboratory starting with cells from a healthy person who is immune to EBV. The purpose of this study is to test how well tabelecleucel works to treat EBV-PTLD following SOT in patients who have not responded to rituximab or rituximab plus chemotherapy treatment and to see what side effects happen. Your participation will help us to understand more about tabelecleucel. In the first 12-month period, participants will be asked to come to the clinic for an estimated 11 to 19 study visits and a minimum of 2 scans, depending on the number of cycles of treatment they are given. After treatment is done, participants will enter into the follow-up phase, and will continue to come into the clinic for scheduled check-ups for up to 24 months after the first dose of tabelecleucel was given. Participant information on the status of their disease and any new treatment will be collected for up to an additional 3 years. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to five years total.

Tabelecleucel is a product containing special immune allogeneic cells, called EBV-Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (EBV-CTLs), that are made in the laboratory starting with cells from a healthy person who is immune to EBV. Tabelecleucel will be given by vein as an injection. The purpose of this study is to test how well ATA129 works to treat EBV-PTLD following failure of rituximab in patients who have had an alloHCT and to see what side effects happen. Participation will help us to understand more about ATA129. In the first 12-month period, participants will be asked to come to the clinic for an estimated 11 to 19 study visits and a minimum of 2 scans, depending on the number of cycles of treatment they are given.
