Various management options for free flap donor sites that require split thickness skin grafting exist. None has proven superior from both a patient care and a cost standpoint. Major complications occurring at these surgical sites include wound breakdown, tendon exposure, and loss of function. We seek to investigate the use of the PICO single-use negative pressure wound therapy device in these surgical sites and determine if it can yield superior results to simpler methods.

The objective of this protocol is to evaluate if Dextromethorphan (DXM) reduces Fibromyalgia (FM) pain. DXM is a drug found in several over-the-counter products, including cough suppressants. The drug may reduce FM pain by suppressing inflammation in the central nervous system. The investigators will be observing the effects of DXM on daily self-reported pain measures in people with FM. If DXM reduces FM pain, it will provide important information about the nature of FM pathophysiology.

This randomized controlled trial will examine the effect of a 6-month behavioral intervention, based on social cognitive theory and delivered through the Internet, for increasing physical activity and secondarily improving mobility, cognition, symptoms and quality of life in persons with MS. The investigators hypothesize that individuals who receive the 6-month behavioral intervention will demonstrate an increase in physical activity behavior that will last throughout a 6-month follow up compared with participants in the control condition. The investigators further hypothesize that individuals in the behavioral intervention will demonstrate better walking mobility and cognitive function, reduced fatigue, depression, anxiety, and pain, and improved quality of life compared to the control condition. The investigators hypothesize that the behavioral intervention will increase physical activity through positive changes in self-efficacy, outcome expectations, goal setting, and impediments as social-cognitive determinants.

Enroll-HD is a longitudinal, observational, multinational study that integrates two former Huntington's disease (HD) registries—REGISTRY in Europe, and COHORT in North America and Australasia—while also expanding to include sites in Latin America. More than 20,000 participants have now enrolled into the study. With annual assessments and no end date, Enroll-HD has built a large and rich database of longitudinal clinical data and biospecimens that form the basis for studies developing tools and biomarkers for progression and prognosis, identifying clinically-relevant phenotypic characteristics, and establishing clearly defined endpoints for interventional studies. Periodic cuts of the database are now available to any interested researcher to use in their research - visit www.enroll-hd.org/for-researchers/access-data/ to learn more.

The Hydrocephalus Clinical Research Network (HCRN) has been established by philanthropic funding to conduct multi-institutional research (clinical trials and observational studies) on pediatric hydrocephalus. In addition to philanthropic funding, the HCRN has also received an NIH NINDS Challenge Grant to support the network infrastructure which allows for the conduct of this and other network studies. The HCRN consists of multiple Clinical Centers and the Data Coordinating Center (DCC). The HCRN Core Data Project will obtain data about all neurosurgical hydrocephalus events from the network Clinical Centers, and create a database to be used by HCRN investigators. The ongoing maintenance of the Core Data Project serves two main purposes: 1) it will help investigators understand the variability, progression, and current treatment practices for hydrocephalus in children, with an ultimate goal of better guiding and assessing therapeutic intervention and providing recommendations on patient care and, 2) it will provide pilot and descriptive data necessary for hypothesis generation and study design (i.e. preliminary power analyses, recruitment projections) for studies under development by the HCRN. This multi-institutional database will be maintained throughout the lifetime of the HCRN, and may be useful for tracking trends in pediatric hydrocephalus over time. The Core Data Project will be an invaluable resource to the HCRN and will help stimulate new research protocols, identify potential need for future expansion of the network to incorporate additional patient populations, and provide a descriptive understanding of children with hydrocephalus cared for within the network.
