Summary

This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with relapsed (the disease has gotten worse after a period of improvement) or refractory (the disease does not respond to treatment) aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma .The investigational therapy in this study is tisagenlecleucel treatment. This treatment includes collecting T cells from patient's blood and changing them by gene transfer to make them recognize tumor cells. The purpose of this study is to see how well tisagenlecleucel therapy treats the disease and how safe the treatment is when compared to Standard or Care treatment. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 60 months and in follow up for up to 15 years.

Summary

KD025 is an investigational medication undergoing testing to determine if it may be effective in the treatment of diffuse systemic sclerosis (skin thickening on more than just the hands). KD025 has previously been tested in graft-versus-host disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and psoriasis. It has shown preliminary effectiveness and safety in the treatment of these conditions. This study will randomly assign subjects to one of three treatment groups, 20mg of KD025 twice per day, 20mg of KD025 once per day, and placebo. The study will measure the improvement, stabilization or worsening of your symptoms, such as changes in your fatigue and pain levels, lung function, skin thickness and other patient reported outcomes. The study treatment period will last 1 year. The drug may help mitigate symptoms of systemic sclerosis and thus may be helpful with the disease in study. The population to be enrolled in this study will involve patients diagnosed with systemic sclerosis, diffuse subset, 18 years of age or older.

Summary

There is growing interest in the utilization of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) as a novel, non-pharmacologic approach to decreasing alcohol use among treatment-seeking individuals with Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). The results of this study will be used to determine which of the 2 proposed TMS strategies has a larger effect on drinking behavior (% days abstinent, % heavy drinking days) as well as alcohol cue-reactivity in a 4 month period. These data will pave the way for TMS to be used as an innovative, new treatment option for individuals with AUD.

Summary

As of yet, the cause of Meniere's disease is uncertain and there is no cure. Given the lack of high level evidence for treatments, we seek to perform a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, crossover, pilot trial of venlafaxine for treating Meniere's disease. Venlafaxine is a safe and well-tolerated medication. It has never been trialed in Meniere's disease, but there is evidence that it could be effective in helping with vertigo attacks and other aspects of the disorder.

Summary

The purpose of this study is to find out if cabozantinib in combination with atezolizumab is effective in treating liver cancer compared to sorafenib alone in people who have not received prior treatment. Subjects are being asked to take part in this clinical research study because they have hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) that has not been previously treated for advanced disease.It is estimated that subjects will take study drug(s) for this study for approximately 1 to 6 months.

Summary

The overarching goal of this project is to examine the effect of combining theta burst
stimulation (TBS) and N-acetylcysteine (NAC) on cocaine craving and brain response to cocaine images. Participants (N=96) will undergo a baseline MRI visit to assess craving and brain function, then be randomized to one of four SHAM / Placebo-controlled TBS / NAC treatment conditions. Following 3-days of medication (NAC or Placebo), return to the lab for a second MRI visit where brain function will be assess immediately before and after TBS or SHAM stimulation. Participants will be contacted via phone over the following 3-weeks to assess mood and craving.
