People with Primary Immune Deficiency (PID) may develop severe, life-threatening infections as a result of inherited defects in the genes that normally instruct blood-forming cells to develop and to fight infections. PID diseases include Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID), leaky SCID, Omenn syndrome (OS), and Reticular Dysgenesis (RD). PIDs may be treated by transplantation of bone marrow stem cells from a healthy person or, in some cases, by enzyme replacement or by gene therapy. Patients with SCID were among the first to receive bone marrow stem cell (also called hematopoietic cells) transplantation (HCT) more than 40 years ago, and HCT is the standard treatment today for this group of diseases. Since PID diseases are rare, there are not enough patients at any single center to determine the full range of causes, natural history, or best methods of treatment. For this research study many PID centers across North America have organized into the Primary Immune Deficiency Treatment Consortium (PIDTC) to pool their experience and study PIDs together. Researchers will collect information on your general health, psychological and developmental health, and the current status of your immune system to help better define future approaches to PID treatments.

Speed of Processing Training in Adults With HIV
University of Alabama at Birmingham HIV Cognition - Other Impaired Driving

As people age with HIV, the synergistic effects with normal age-related cognitive declines will accentuate and/or accelerate declines in cognitive functioning which can be detected as early in one's 40s. Although interventions are needed to protect/improve cognitive functioning, one intervention already exists to improve speed of processing. NINR/NIA (January 14, 2014) announced that Speed of Processing Training used in the ACTIVE Study (N = 2,802 community-dwelling older adults) has the ability to enable "older people to maintain their cognitive abilities as they age" even 10 years after training. As shown in the ACTIVE Study, this intervention uniquely improves driving, instrumental activities of daily living (IADL), health-related quality of life, self-rated health, internal locus of control, and protects one from depression; these represent areas of needed intervention for adults with HIV as well. In adults with HIV, previous pilot studies likewise indicate speed of processing declines are associated with poorer driving simulator performance and more self-reported at-fault automobile crashes; such speed of processing declines on driving alone represent a significant public health concern. These studies also demonstrated that Speed of Processing Training improved this cognitive ability and translated into improved performance on a timed measure of IADLs. Based on prior research, this RCT proposal consists of a pre-post two-year longitudinal experimental design whereby 264 adults with HIV, 40+ years and diagnosed with HIV-Associated Neurocognitive Disorder, will be randomly assigned to one of three training conditions: 1) 10 hours of laboratory-based Speed of Processing Training, 2) 20 hours of laboratory-based Speed of Processing Training, or 3) 10 hours of a standardized computer-contact control (sham) condition. AIM 1: Determine whether 10 vs 20 hours of speed of processing training will improve this cognitive ability at post-test, year 1, and year 2 after baseline. AIM 2: Determine whether 10 vs 20 hours of speed of processing training will improve everyday functioning at post-test, year 1, and year 2 after baseline. Exploratory AIM: Determine whether improvement in speed in speed of processing and/or everyday functioning over time mediate improvement quality of life (e.g., depression, health related quality of life).

The concept of precision medicine - taking individual variability into account when planning preventions and interventions - is not new but is quickly gaining attention in this age of powerful methodology of patient characterization and development of tools to analyze large sets of data. Oncology is the most obvious field in which this information has been readily applied. Increasing focus, nationally and internationally, on developing broad databases of patient genetic information and research efforts evaluating those data will, hopefully, lead to the development and application of evidence-based data enhancing the practice of all fields of medicine. It has yet to become obvious how this information can best be applied to the field of anesthesiology. Most genomics work in anesthesia has been focused in the area of pain medicine. There is a known genetic influence on the potency of opioid-induced analgesia, however; a genetic component of opioid-induced respiratory depression has yet to be thoroughly evaluated. Respiratory depression plays a role in clinical care - from procedures requiring sedation with monitored anesthesia care to treating post-opertative pain and chronic pain - but perhaps its largest current role in the public arena is the unfortunate deaths caused by side effects due to drug overdose. Personalized medicine remains on the horizon for the field of anesthesia, but, as genetic testing becomes more affordable and mainstream in clinical practice, the potential applications are broad. Most readily would be its incorporation into development of patient specific pain regimens. Respiratory depression is a potentially lethal side effect of opioid therapy. In light of the opioid epidemic and CDC-scrutiny of opioid use, determining genetic profiles susceptible to respiratory depression could prove useful in further tailoring the treatment of pain both in the perioperative setting and in the chronic pain management setting.

The objective of this trial is to conduct a two-arm, randomized controlled trial (RCT) of SDM Treatment Plans (TPs) delivered at the time of decision-making compared to standard oncology care (delayed delivery of standard-of-care TPs) to determine impact on SDM. The intervention will be piloted in a RCT with 140 early stage breast cancer (EBC) and 140 metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients to assess impact. Subjects will be enrolled across two sites. Our primary outcome will be the increase in percentage of patients reporting a perception of shared decision-making. Aim.1: The primary outcome will be to evaluate the impact of the SDM intervention on the percentage of patients perceiving shared or greater role in decision-making. Aim 2: To evaluate the impact of the SDM intervention on provider outcomes including the percentage of providers perceiving SDM with the patient, number of treatment options offered to patients, the proportion of times that clinical trials are offered to patients, the use of NCCN guideline-based treatment, and self-report of treatment plan use. Aim 3: Secondary fidelity and provider outcomes from audio recording will include whether providers elicit: any patient preferences during treatment planning, preferences related to physical side effects or efficacy, or preferences related to other aspects of the patient experience. We will also assess whether providers use the TP in the decision-making discussion and whether providers discuss or offer clinical trials to the patient.

This study aims to determine if staples or sutures are better for the closure of uncomplicated foot and ankle surgeries. Currently, most surgeons base their choice for closure on previous teaching from a mentor during fellowship or personal experience. There is no standard of care for closure material on hand surgeries to date. This study will prospectively randomize patients to have either staple or suture wound closure if they have a short incision. In surgeries with longer incisions (i.e. 5+ cm), or multiple incisions on similar sites (i.e. bilateral operations, multiple toes), patients will have half sutures and half staple closure. The three primary measured outcomes will be: pain upon suture/staple removal, time to place and remove sutures vs. staples, and scar formation.

Mobility refers to a person's purposeful movement through the environment from one place to another and can be conceptualized as a continuum from bed bound (immobility) on one extreme to making excursions to distant locations on the other extreme. Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is a chronic, progressive optic neuropathy that can lead to gradual loss of vision in the peripheral field and central vision. Older adults with POAG have an increased risk for motor vehicle collisions and falls. Moreover, existing studies suggest that patients with POAG exhibit more postural sway while standing as measured by a balance platform and also tend to walk more slowly than those who are normally sighted and free of ocular disease. While these disturbances likely influence mobility, there has been little research directly assessing the impact of POAG on mobility. This study will assess the impact of POAG on life space (one aspect of mobility) and will determine whether difficulties with life space are associated with difficulties experienced under conditions of dim lighting.

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.
