Summary

The purpose of this study is to see whether an investigational drug called CDX-3379 combined with cetuximab, a monoclonal antibody that targets a protein called EGFR, will shrink tumors for subjects with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with HNSCC and who have previously received cetuximab but who have since experienced progression. Both the investigational drug, CDX-3379, and cetuximab are administered intravenously (into a vein). Subjects can expect to participate in the study for 2 years or longer.

Comparison of Length of Stay for Infants with GBS Unknown Mothers with Adequate vs Inadequate Treatment Save

Summary

The primary investigators/residents have noted during clinical rotations that a significant number of GBS unknown mothers at SRHS are being treated with intrapartum antibiotics even without the presence of risk factors, presumably to decrease postpartum/neonatal length of stay.
Our study, a retrospective chart review, will determine whether or not length of stay is affected by treating GBS unknown mothers with intrapartum antibiotics in the absence of the aforementioned risk factors.
Potential benefits include the cost-effectiveness of decreased length of stay for these patients as well as decreased exposure to nosocomial infections for neonates. However, antibiotic stewardship and patient safety are also considerations. Another potential option for these patients is rapid GBS testing with PCR which can provide results in 1-2 hours compared with 24-48 hours for the standard culture. PCR is not currently available at SMC.

Summary

This study is for subjects who have been diagnosed with acute leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and are a candidate for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). The study is being done to learn if adding defibrotide to the standard medicines for prevention of acute Graft-versus-Host Disease (aGvHD), which is called immunoprophylaxis, will help to prevent aGvHD better than using the usual immunoprophylaxis medicines alone. The investigational drug in this study is called Defibrotide. The duration of participation for each patient is approximately 6 months.

Summary

This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with a genetic mutation called FLT3/ITD. The investigational drug in this study is called gilteritinib (ASP2215). The main purpose of this study is to learn if it is safe and effective to treat patients who have FLT3/ITD AML with a study drug called gilteritinib (ASP2215) after transplant. The sponsor wants to know if this drug works better than a placebo to stop the AML from coming back. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 7 years after they start the study drug.

Summary

Emerging adults with obesity are at risk of developing further health problems as they progress into adulthood. There are limited interventions developed for this population, and no interventions specifically study the role of mood and positive affect on improving motivation for healthy lifestyles. Positive psychological wellbeing is linked to improved cardiometabolic risk and health via improved health behaviors and biological functioning. Given biological and psychological differences between males and females during this transition period, targeted interventions for each gender are needed. In this small pilot study, Quality of Life Therapy (QOLT), an empirically-supported and manual-guided intervention combining CBT and positive psychology techniques, will be adapted for emerging adult females with obesity. For this small pilot, we will use a sample of emerging adult females with obesity (EAO) 18-25 years to refine and test feasibility of QOLT adapted for this specific population (QOLT-EAO), with a focus on developing motivation for healthy lifestyles.

Summary

The purpose of this first in human study is to find a safe dose level of the investigational drug REGN3767 alone or in combination with REGN2810. Other purposes of this study are to measure the levels of REGN3767 and REGN2810 in the subject's blood and to collect any evidence of tumor shrinkage when given alone or in combination with REGN2810.
REGN3767 and REGN2810 are both a type of drug called a monoclonal antibody. Antibodies are proteins that are naturally found in your blood stream that fight infections. A monoclonal antibody is a special kind of antibody that is manufactured as a medication to target a specific protein in the body that may be involved in the subject's cancer.
In this part of the study each participant will receive 1 of 3 different doses of REGN3767 alone or in combination with one dose of REGN2810. There will be a total of 6 different groups of participants the study team plans to study based on what dose of REGN3767 they receive and whether they receive it alone or with REGN2810.
The study is sponsored by Regeneron. The investigator in charge of this study at MUSC is Carolyn Britten, MD. Part 1 of this study is being done at 4-5 sites. Approximately24-48 people will take part study-wide.
