Since its launch in 2004, the overarching aim of the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) has been realized in informing the design of therapeutic trials in AD. ADNI3 continues the previously funded ADNI-1, ADNI-GO, and ADNI-2 studies that have been combined public/private collaborations between academia and industry to determine the relationships between the clinical, cognitive, imaging, genetic and biochemical biomarker characteristics of the entire spectrum of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The overall goal of the study is to continue to discover, optimize, standardize, and validate clinical trial measures and biomarkers used in AD research.

This study is a multi-center, randomized clinical trial of women with refractory accidental bowel leakage (ABL) symptoms who have failed to achieve satisfactory symptom control from 2 first-line treatments for ABL: supervised pelvic muscle training (PMT) and constipating medication. The purpose of this study is to compare percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) to a validated sham to determine if PTNS is effective for the treatment of fecal incontinence (FI) in women. The investigators will test the null hypothesis that change from baseline in St. Mark's (Vaizey) score after 12 weeks of stimulation is not significantly different in women with symptomatic ABL receiving PTNS treatments compared to women receiving sham PTNS treatments.

The hypothesis for this study is that pancreas lipid will be more closely associated with first-phase beta-cell response in African-Americans than in European-Americans, both at baseline and in response to treatment. The investigators will determine whether race influences the association of pancreas lipid with beta-cell function.The proposed research builds upon the investigators preliminary observations in non-diabetic adults that reduction in dietary glycemic load, in the absence of weight loss, selectively reduces visceral adipose tissue and ectopic lipid, and is associated with improvements in insulin sensitivity and beta-cell function. No study has attempted to test the hypothesis that selective reduction in pancreatic lipid with a simple change in diet composition, in the absence of energy restriction, will lead to the recovery of beta-cell function in patients with early Type 2 Diabetes (T2D). The investigators hypothesize that participants following a Low Glycemic Diet will show a greater decrease in pancreas lipid. Specifically, the investigators will be the first to demonstrate that a weight-maintaining low-glycemic diet improves glucose tolerance by increasing first-phase insulin secretion. Results may be particularly relevant to African-Americans who are at greater risk for T2D.

This phase II trial studies how pembrolizumab works before and after surgery in treating patients with stage III-IV high-risk melanoma. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving pembrolizumab before and after surgery may work better in treating melanoma.

Delayed rod-mediated dark adaptation (RMDA), or delayed recovery of vision in a dark environment, is a functional biomarker (i.e., risk factor) for early age-related macular degeneration (AMD). This research plan is designed to elucidate the structural (anatomical) basis of this visual deficit using cellular- and subcellular level imaging of the retina and its supporting tissues in living people. An accurate map and timeline of structure-function relationships in persons tested for night vision will result in functionally validated structural endpoints for early AMD trials, as well as define major biologic effects for development into future treatments.

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols have been proven to be very successful in specific patient populations. An example is with ERAS for colorectal surgery. ERAS protocols in this patient population have been shown to reduce overall morbidity and hospital length of stay (LOS). At the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), the institution has had successful implementation of ERAS protocols for several surgical specialties including colorectal, breast, spine, gynecology, and gynecology-oncology. However, the institution currently does not have a protocol in place for the most commonly performed surgical procedure - cesarean delivery. At UAB, the institution performs approximately 1,000 cesarean deliveries per year. The investigators believe that an ERAS protocol will be beneficial for these patients. Currently, there is very little data published on ERAS protocols. Although this patient population is ideal for an ERAS protocol, there are several barriers that have to be overcome. The data published show promising results for ERAS protocols with cesarean delivery. A larger tertiary care center showed earlier discharge with lower re-admission rates with an ERAS pathway. Currently, the investigators have created a multidisciplinary group at UAB to establish an ERAS protocol for patients undergoing cesarean delivery. This group includes anesthesiologists, obstetricians, nursing, neonatology, pharmacy, and informatics. Once the investigators have implemented this protocol, the investigators would like to perform a retrospective analysis to determine if there are any significant changes in our desired outcomes the investigators will study. Our goal is to demonstrate significantly improved outcomes in the investigators' measured endpoints. The investigators believe that this information will be very useful because although there is a national interest in creating ERAS protocols for cesarean deliveries, there currently is very little published on the subject. The investigators would like to publish the investigators' results and protocol as a resource for other institutions to adopt.

The central objective of this proposal is to rigorously compare two strategies designed to improve BP control in primary care practices serving rural Southeastern African Americans with low socioeconomic status (SES) living in the "Black Belt". The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Disparities Report identifies individuals with rural residence, minority ethnicity, and low SES as being at high risk for poor health outcomes. The "Black Belt" region stretches from eastern Texas in an arc to Maryland and includes residents with all 3 of these characteristics - the proverbial triple threat. This traditionally agricultural region is characterized by steep poverty, low educational attainment, scarce resources, and mostly African American residents. The Black Belt is in the heart of the Stroke Belt, a geographic area long recognized to have the highest cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality in the US. The AHRQ Disparities Report also cites that the Southeast has lower quality of care than the rest of the US, thus effective strategies to optimize CVD prevention in general and hypertension (HTN) control specifically are urgently needed here. In year 1 (AIM 1) we're engaging community members (community members who have experience being community peer advisors or have high blood pressure) to develop the study interventions and protocols. In years 2-5, the investigators will test these interventions.
