This is a research study to compare a text message based mental health and substance use screening and referral to treatment program, called Listening to Women (LTW), to standard of care mental health and substance use screening. Pregnant women ages 18-41 who are receiving prenatal care within the MUSC Health system are invited to participate.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).The investigational drug used in this study is CLN-081.
This study has 3 parts; Phase 1 Dose Escalation, Phase 1 Dose Expansion, and Phase 2a Dose Expansion:
-Phase 1 Dose Escalation: The main aim of this part of the study is to find a maximum tolerated dose for CLN-081. This will be done by slowly increasing the dose given to each participant or to small groups of participants until certain adverse effects are seen. All participants will be closely monitored by the study doctor and team. When the maximum tolerated dose has been found, it will be used in the subsequent parts of the study.
-Phase 1 Dose Expansion: In this part of the study more participants will receive the maximum tolerated dose to confirm the safety of this dose of the study medicine and to explore different dosing schedules, for example, taking the study medicine once a day versus twice a day.
-Phase 2a Dose Expansion: The main aim of this part of the study will be to see how well the study medicine works in reducing tumor size.
Participants can expect to be on this study for about 3 years.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) also known as lupus is a complex autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks itself instead of external pathogens that can cause disease like bacteria or viruses. The large majority of SLE patients are women. The purpose of this study is to better understand how SLE affects overall patient health in women and expression of genes linked to the development of SLE. Part of this study involves collection of a blood sample at a single visit to test expression of genes linked to SLE. This study will compare demographic and clinical characteristics and genetic differences among women with SLE from three racial/ethnic groups. Better understanding of racial/ethnic differences in health and genetic expression of SLE could help reduce poor disease outcomes such as kidney or heart disease. Results will help us learn more about differences in SLE health across different racial/ethnic backgrounds and will guide medical care.
This study aims to explore symptoms for Black women with heart failure using surveys and interviews. Black women have not been included in the majority of heart failure research. It is important that Black women have a voice and the ability to share their symptom experience. The goal of this research is to study clusters of heart failure symptoms in Black women to eventually improve symptom education, monitoring, and treatments.
This study is for a patient that have received previous treatment for renal cell carcinoma. During this study, patients will be randomized to get the investigational drug, MK-6482, or a standard of care drug, everolimus. This is a study to test if MK-6482 or the standard of care drug works better for patientsr type of prostate cancer. MK-6482 is considered experimental. "Experimental" means that the study drug is currently being tested for patientsr type of cancer. It has not been approved by certain health authorities, such as the United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat prostate cancer. Where as, everolimus, has been an approved standard of care chemotherapy by the FDA.
Participants can expect to be in this study for 4 years.
This study is for patients that are getting an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) from an unrelated donor for a hematologic malignancy, (cancers that affect the blood and/or lymphatic system). The investigational drug in this study is Vedolizumab. This purpose of this study is to investigate the safety and effectiveness of Vedolizumab compared to placebo (dummy drug), for prevention of intestinal acute graft versus-host disease (aGvHD) in patients undergoing allo-HSCT. GvHD occurs when particular types of white blood cell (T cells) in the donated cells (the graft) attack patients own body cells.
The objective of this study is to obtain viable mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from umbilical cords in uncomplicated planned cesarean deliveries. Potential donors will be screened prior to donation of umbilical cords to confirm no infectious disease, viruses and/or diseases. The overall goal is to obtain MSCs from healthy donors for eventual transfusion into patients for potential treatment of diseases, such as chronic pancreatitis, systemic sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, COVID 19, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and other diseases in studies approved by the IRB. We also want to store the cells as repository for other potential therapy.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with solid tumor malignancy with KRAS G12C mutation. The investigational drug used in this study is MRTX849. The purpose of this study is to see if patients with cancer with a KRAS G12C mutation will benefit from treatment with MRTX849, what side effects occur and how often they occur and to see how quickly MRTX849 is absorbed into the blood stream and how fast it is removed by the body. Participants can expect to be in this study for as long as the disease does not get worse.
This study is for women who have experienced a sexual assault in the past six weeks and use alcohol. The research involves completing a five week behavioral treatment for stress and alcohol use. Participants will complete surveys during visits. Participants may also be asked to complete brief daily assessments on their smart phones.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with PD-L1 Positive Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC). Specifically, for people with this type of cancer that cannot be treated with surgery or radiation treatment and has not been treated for cancer that spread to sites distant from the head and neck region (metastatic) or for cancer that returned or got worse after being treated (recurrent).The investigational drug (not approved by the FDA) in this study is GSK3359609. The purpose of this research study is to find out if GSK3359609 combined with pembrolizumab works better than the single drug pembrolizumab. Participants can expect to receive treatment for about 3 years and be in follow-up for the rest of their life.
