The Prevention of Lower Urinary Symptoms (PLUS) Research Consortium is working to optimize prevention of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in women and adolescent females across their life spans. The ability to measure bladder health and key risk and protective factors is crucial to the PLUS mission. To describe and measure the spectrum of bladder health in diverse populations, researchers need a valid and reliable instrument. To date, the Consortium's work on design of a bladder health instrument has been a culmination of expert opinion, information from focus groups, and incorporation of previously validated items and language where appropriate, along with cognitive interviews of participants from the general public. The next step in the consortium's work is to prospectively collect data to test and validate bladder health instrument (BHI) items for inclusion in a final bladder health scale (BHS) that can assess the full range of bladder health of women. This will be through a combination of general population recruitment for completing mailed surveys and clinical population recruitment for completing surveys and an in-person evaluation.

Motor vehicle crashes cause the death of an American child every 3 hours, more than any other cause. When installed correctly, car seats reduce risk of serious injury and death to infants and young children. Unfortunately, a large portion of child restraints is installed incorrectly. A network of trained technicians work across the country to assist parents in achieving correct use of child restraints through scheduled "car seat checks," where technicians work with parents to install restraints in their vehicles. Car seat checks are effective in reducing errors in child restraint installations. However, the services are highly underutilized. The present study evaluates use of interactive virtual presence technology (also called interactive merged reality) to remotely assist parents to install child restraints correctly into their vehicles. Building from small pilot studies on the topic, the investigators will conduct a randomized non-inferiority trial to evaluate whether parents who install child restraints while communicating with a remote expert technician via interactive virtual presence achieve installations and learning that are not inferior in their safety to parents who install restraints live with a remote technician onsite. The investigators will recruit 1476 parents at 7 locations nationwide and randomly assign consenting parents to install their child restraint either via interactive virtual presence or with a live technician. The correctness of installation safety will be assessed using objective checklists, both following installation and again four months later. The investigators aim to demonstrate that child restraint installation is accurate (>90% correct) when conducted remotely via interactive virtual presence, that such installations are not inferior to the accuracy of installation with a live on-site expert, and that parents learn and retain information about correct child restraint installation.

This study will use a PET/MRI scanner and an investigational radioactive drug called [F-18]DPA-714 that measures inflammation in the brain, also called neuroinflammation, before chemotherapy and after 3 to 6 cycles of chemotherapy given as part of your clinical care. In addition, this study will use a PET/MRI scanner with an investigational radioactive drug called [C-11]PiB that measures the amount of abnormal protein (called beta-amyloid) in the brain that is a marker of Alzheimer's disease pathology. One of the most common complaints among breast cancer survivors is cognitive or memory problems especially in older adults. Researchers need to better understand the mechanisms and risk factors for cognitive problems in order to address this problem. This study seeks to examine two mechanisms, neuroinflammation and amyloid deposition, that have been suggested in other age-related cognitive disorders. This study may help physicians and researchers develop new treatments to protect the brain in cancer patients. UAB plans to enroll 20 participants in this study.

This phase III trial studies how well single fraction stereotactic radiosurgery works compared with fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery in treating patients with cancer that has spread to the brain from other parts of the body and has been removed by surgery. Single fraction stereotactic radiosurgery is a specialized radiation therapy that delivers a single, high dose of radiation directly to the tumor and may cause less damage to normal tissue. Fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery delivers multiple, smaller doses of radiation therapy over time. This study may help doctors find out if fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery is better or worse than the usual approach with single fraction stereotactic radiosurgery.
