This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well cediranib maleate and olaparib work when given together or separately, and compares them to standard chemotherapy in treating patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that has returned (recurrent) after receiving chemotherapy with drugs that contain platinum (platinum-resistant) or continued to grow while being treated with platinum-based chemotherapy drugs (platinum-refractory). Cediranib maleate and olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether giving cediranib maleate and olaparib together may cause more damage to cancer cells when compared to either drug alone or standard chemotherapy.

This phase III trial studies how well ibrutinib and obinutuzumab with or without venetoclax work in treating patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Ibrutinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as obinutuzumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as venetoclax, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving ibrutinib, obinutuzumab, and venetoclax may work better than giving ibrutinib and obinutuzumab in treating patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

The majority of the over one million annual AHF hospitalizations originate from the emergency department. Admitting and re-admitting lower risk AHF patients who don't need prolonged hospitalization may increase their risk for poor outcomes and decrease their quality of life: Safe alternatives to hospitalization from the ED are needed. We propose a strategy-of-care, short stay unit management of AHF (i.e. less than 24 hours), will lead to improved outcomes for lower risk AHF patients.

African Americans (AA) are at higher risk to develop and go blind from glaucoma than Caucasians. While glaucoma medications can help delay disease progression and possible blindness, problems with poor adherence have been documented for both racial groups, with a greater prevalence among AA. Of the very few interventions targeting glaucoma medication adherence studied to date, several methodological limitations persist. For example, few have been subjected to rigorous randomized clinical trial (RCT) designs, the intervention itself was designed and studied predominantly among Caucasians and thereby limiting generalizability, the effects on adherence have been short-term, most have been evaluated on small sample sizes, and/or the focus of the intervention was solely on providing patient education regarding eye disease and management. Needed in this important yet understudied area are culturally-relevant, health promotion-based approaches which are 1) targeted to high risk populations, 2) theoretically driven, 3) relevant to the beliefs, language, and values of underserved populations as well as challenges related to glaucoma medication adherence, 4) designed to promote preparation and readiness to engage in healthy behaviors, and 5) train patients in skills to use in order to more effectively problem-solve ongoing obstacles related to adherence. The investigators published a paper in the Journal of Glaucoma investigating determinants related to objective medication adherence as measured by an electronic dosing aid (DA). Findings revealed poorer rates of adherence among AA patients with glaucoma compared to Caucasian patients with glaucoma. Evidence for racial differences in adherence have also been increasingly documented in the glaucoma literature. In a follow-up study with focus groups of AA's with glaucoma that was published in Optometry and Vision Sciences, the goal was to identify the specific barriers and facilitators related to glaucoma medication adherence among this high-risk group. Several key themes emerged such as patient, provider, and socioeconomic factors, along with barriers in views of health, perceived harm from treatment, costs, avoidant coping styles, forgetfulness, and in eyedrop administration/scheduling. The investigators used these results along with guidance from a consumer advisory board consisting of AA patients with glaucoma in order to develop and pilot test the resulting culturally relevant, health promotion-based intervention. The pilot data demonstrated feasibility and favorable preliminary efficacy for the intervention to significantly improve medication adherence to further pursue in a clinical trial.

The investigators will conduct a 2-arm randomized controlled pilot, feasibility feeding study in which 28 participants will be randomized to receive either a calorie-restricted Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet or a calorie-restricted standard American diet provided by the study for 4 weeks. Participants will be non-Hispanic black or white, generally healthy females (14 black, 14 white). The investigators will collect fecal samples at multiple time points before, during, and after the dietary intervention to analyze for changes in the gut microbiota and functional-level metabolic products. This work will be led by an interdisciplinary team including expertise in bio-behavioral science, microbiology, nutrition science, bioinformatics, and biostatistics all with cross-cutting expertise in health disparities, prevention research, nutrition, the gut microbiota, inflammation and other biomarkers. The rationale for the proposed research is that once the interactions between race, diet, and the gut microbiota are more fully understood, targeted diet modifications may provide new and innovative approaches for the prevention and treatment of obesity and obesity-related diseases.

This phase II/III trial tests whether it is possible to decrease the chance of high-grade B-cell lymphomas returning or getting worse by adding a new drug, venetoclax to the usual combination of drugs used for treatment. Venetoclax may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking a protein called Bcl-2. Drugs used in usual chemotherapy, such as rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone, and etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving venetoclax together with usual chemotherapy may work better than usual chemotherapy alone in treating patients with high-grade B-cell lymphomas, and may increase the chance of cancer going into remission and not returning.

PCR detection of HSV DNA shedding in the female genital tract using the GeneXpert system (Cepheid, Sunnyvale CA) will be compared with traditional (routine) PCR (pregnant and nonpregnant women) and with HSV culture (nonpregnant women). The GeneXpert system performs all sample-processing steps and real-time PCR in a single integrated cartridge. The standard cartridge is an inexpensive disposable plastic cartridge with filtration and ultrasonic lysis capabilities. It consists chiefly of several combined molded plastic components: a cartridge body containing eleven fluid reservoirs or chambers along with an attached PCR tube, a specialized valve body with an ultrasonic interface containing a sub-micron filter and glass lysis beads, and a rotary valve with an axial syringe barrel. The operation of the cartridge is simple. The rotary valve contains an inlet and an outlet port. Fluid such as a sample buffer can be drawn up into a syringe drive through the inlet port of the rotary valve and then dispensed into any other chamber within the cartridge by rotating the valve and expelling the fluid through the outlet port. The fluid can either be passed through a filter contained within the valve assembly or it can be passed directly into the next chamber without filtration, depending on the path that is chosen. The cartridge fluidics and subsequent real-time PCR all are performed within the GeneXpert instrument. The GeneXpert contains multiple modules (ICORE units) that can be independently programmed to drive the syringe/rotary valve, and to perform four-color real-time PCR. Each cartridge fits inside one module, and all processing, PCR, and analysis steps are performed automatically. Each ICORE module can be run and analyzed independently, so batching of samples is unnecessary.

Cirrhosis leads to portal hypertension and development of gastroesophageal varices, which are the most common cause for bleeding in cirrhosis and a major cause of death. The American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) recommends screening endoscopy every 2 years to evaluate for gastroesophageal varices, and annual surveillance for those with small varices on endoscopy. Unfortunately, endoscopy is costly, requires sedation, is poorly tolerated, is subject to high inter-observer variability, and is associated with risks that include bleeding, esophageal injury and aspiration. Noninvasive methods for evaluation of gastroesophageal varices are needed. CT is noninvasive, rapid, less expensive than endoscopy, requires no sedation, provides a quantitative measure of the size of the varices, and allows for assessment of para-esophageal varices, varices in other body locations, ascites, other signs of portal hypertension, patency of liver vasculature, and detection, diagnosis and staging of hepatocellular carcinoma. Single-Energy CT (SECT) has relatively high accuracy in prospective studies for detection of any and large varices but is associated with suboptimal contrast opacification of gastroesophageal varices. Dual-Energy CT with the GE scanners with GSI Xtream (DECT) improves the contrast-to-noise ratio by 60% compared to SECT and is currently standard of care at UAB for evaluation of cirrhosis. The primary objective of this study is to determine the accuracy of DECT for detecting any varices and high-risk varices. The study hypothesis is that the accuracy (AUROC) of DECT will be >0.90 and >0.95 for detecting any and high-risk varices in a prospective pilot study (N=50) that uses endoscopy as the reference standard. This will be a single-center pilot observational prospective IRB-approved study. A total of 50 adult patients presenting to UAB Endoscopy for surveillance endoscopy to detect and grade gastroesophageal varices will be enrolled.

The purpose of this study is to test the effects of an innovative exercise program referred to as movement-2-music (M2M) on health and fitness outcomes in adults with physical/mobility disabilities. One hundred and eight participants with physical/mobility disabilities will be recruited and randomly enrolled into one of two groups: a) M2M or b) waitlist control. The primary aim of this study is to determine the effects of a 12-week M2M program on health and fitness in participants with physical/mobility disabilities who are in one of three functional mobility groups: 1) Group I - only able to exercise while sitting, 2) Group II - able to exercise sitting and standing with/without support, and 3) Group III - able to exercise one side of the body more than the other side. The second aim is to compare the observed effects of the program in this study to a previous M2M study that groups participants based on disability type. The third aim of this study is to test whether adherence (defined as attendance to the 12-week program) affects the effects of M2M in participants with physical/mobility disabilities. The potential influences of different functional mobility and disabilities of participants on how the program affects participants' health and fitness outcomes will also be tested.
