This study will implement a new treatment regimen for patients with advanced and inoperable pancreatic cancer using chemotherapy combinations of Folfirinox or gemcitabine-nab paclitaxel (abraxane) followed by a short course of high dose radiation called Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT). While the chemotherapy is standard of care, the strategy of adding SBRT has not been investigated. An increase in the percentage of patients who can proceed to have surgery to remove their disease is anticipated with this approach.

Time-restricted feeding (TRF) is a novel type of intermittent fasting that involves eating within a daily period of 10 hours or less, followed by fasting for at least 14 hours daily. Several studies in rodents report that TRF reduces body weight, improves blood sugar control, and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease—even when food intake is matched to the control group or no weight loss occurs. Preliminary evidence suggests that TRF may also increase weight loss, fat loss, and reduce the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in humans. This study will test whether TRF enhances fat loss and increases weight loss in adults with obesity, relative to conventional dieting alone. In addition, this study will determine whether TRF reduces risk factors for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease and will measure the feasibility and acceptability of TRF. In conjunction with the parent study described above, four ancillary studies will be conducted: 1. Effect of weight loss on nitrogen metabolism and bacteria in the mouth. The primary endpoints for this ancillary study are plasma and salivary nitrate and nitrite, and the secondary endpoints are salivary nitrate reductase activity and salivary bacterial abundance. 2. Effect of weight loss on several biomarkers related to kidney stones. The primary endpoint for this ancillary study is urinary oxalate, and the secondary endpoints are urinary citrate, chloride, sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, uric acid, and creatinine. 3. Effect of meal timing on blood pressure regulation and kidney function. The primary endpoints of this ancillary study include urinary aldosterone excretion, sodium, potassium, and endothelin, whereas the secondary endpoints include nitric oxide and albumin. Additional exploratory endpoints include renal injury markers (KIM-1, nephrin, and urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio), measures of reactive oxidative stress (e.g., hydrogen peroxide and TBARs), and urinary exosomes. Urine will be analyzed in 12-hour bins to determine how meal timing affects differentially affects these endpoints during the daytime and nighttime. The effects of weight loss on these endpoints may also be considered. 4. Validation of a meal timing questionnaire to assess the distribution of food intake throughout the day.

The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and estimate the efficacy of psilocybin-facilitated treatment for cocaine use. We also will monitor the impact of psilocybin-facilitated treatment on the use of other drugs and outcomes relevant to cocaine involvement (e.g., criminal involvement). MRI assessment is a unique aspect of this study. As a potential biological mechanism of psilocybin's effect includes changes in default mode network functional connectivity (Carhart-Harris et al., 2012), we will determine if psilocybin's therapeutic effects are mediated by such changes. Moreover, as Glx (a brain metabolite that reflects glutamate) abnormalities have been shown to play a role in cocaine addiction, we will determine if psilocybin impacts Glx in the anterior cingulate cortex and hippocampus.

The study is a multi-center, randomized, surgical trial of women with symptomatic post-hysterectomy apical (cuff) prolapse desiring surgical treatment. This study will compare the three available surgical treatments performed in usual practice. The purpose of this study is to compare two commonly performed mesh apical repair (sacral colpopexy vs. Apical Transvaginal Mesh) and vaginal native tissue apical repairs with mesh reinforced repairs. The primary outcome is measured over time (up to 60 months) using a survival analysis approach. The investigators hypothesize that treatment failure will not differ between vaginally and abdominally placed mesh for vault vaginal prolapse, and mesh repairs (regardless of route of implantation) will be superior to native tissue apical suspension.
