Summary

In current practice, options for venous and lymphatic malformations remain limited. Recently an oral medication, sirolimus, has been found to benefit patients when taken once or twice a day for several months. Unfortunately there are many side effects associated with this medication, some of which can be severe including, neutropenia, oral ulcerations, and lab abnormalities. The purpose of this study is to determine if once weekly dosed sirolimus will be effective for the treatment of venous and lymphatic malformations. Additionally, the study will evaluate patient satisfaction and identify adverse effects. Participants will be on the medication for 6 months with an option to continue after this time period.

Clinical Trial of the Fit Families Multicomponent Obesity Intervention for African American Adolescents and Their Caregivers: Next Step from the ORBIT Initiative

Date Added
January 5th, 2021
PRO Number
Pro00106021
Researcher
Phillippe Cunningham

List of Studies


Keywords
Adolescents, Minorities, Obesity
Summary

The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of a comprehensive treatment for African-American adolescents with obesity and their overweight or obese caregiver (e.g., parent). Families who decide to participate in this study will be randomly assigned to one of two intervention groups: the FIT Families group or the Home-Based Family Support (HBFS) group. This means participants have a 50/50 chance (like flipping a coin) of being in either group. Participants randomized to FIT Families will have in-home sessions with a community health worker (CHW) twice a week for the first three months, and once a week for the second three months. Participants randomized to HBFS will have in-home sessions once a week for six months with a community health worker. Participants in both groups will receive education and support for healthier lifestyles.
The study will last 18 months. During the 18-month study period, youth and caregivers will wear a FitBit activity tracker, complete study assessments, have their height and weight measured, and provide finger prick blood samples to be tested for blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
Potential benefits to caregivers and youth who participate in the study include: positive changes in healthy lifestyle behaviors and weight loss, decrease in health risks associated with obesity, and improved family relations, though these cannot be guaranteed.
