There is increasing evidence that obesity is associated with increased urinary oxalate excretion, an important risk factor for calcium oxalate stone formation. By the administration of a controlled low oxalate diet the investigators will estimate endogenous oxalate synthesis in both non-obese and obese non-kidney-stone forming adults. This study seeks to thusly increase the understanding of the relationships between obesity and endogenous oxalate synthesis to serve as a platform to develop novel therapies for stone prevention.

One in three American adults have prediabetes, and up to 70% of adults with prediabetes eventually develop type 2 diabetes. With the high cost of treating diabetes, cost-effective approaches are needed to reduce the incidence of diabetes. One new strategy may be to change when people eat. Studies in rodents suggest that a form of intermittent fasting that limits eating to a short time period each day and involves fasting for the rest of the day (time-restricted feeding; TRF) improves blood sugar control and cardiovascular health. Preliminary studies suggest that TRF also improves blood sugar, weight loss, and cardiovascular health in humans. This study will be the first full-scale, controlled feeding trial to determine whether TRF can improve 24-hour blood sugar control, 24-hour blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease risk factors even when food intake is matched to the control group. This clinical trial will also determine whether the benefits of TRF depend on the time of day that people eat. Participants will be assigned to one of three groups: (1) 'Early TRF' (eat between ~8 am-3 pm), (2) 'Mid-day TRF' (eat between ~1 pm - 8 pm), or (3) Control Schedule (~8 am - 8 pm) for 10 weeks. All food will be provided and matched between groups.

Recent studies have shown children who sustain a concussion are susceptible to having chronic symptoms (post-concussion syndrome). This chronicity can lead to delays in returning to learn and returning to play. Blurry vision, double vision, eye strain and eye tracking problems are some of the reported chronic symptoms that can affect patients' daily activities. Concussion awareness has increased recently and there is a surge of interest to better understand and treat the symptoms of post-concussion syndrome. Currently, ocular treatment for patients are often empirically determined. Common treatments are vision therapy and/or bifocal glasses. There has yet to be any standardization or prospective studies looking into treatment for these concussed patients with ocular symptoms and findings. The objective of this protocol is to compare three different types of glasses (typical prescription glasses for kids, typical glasses for kids with anti-glare coating, and progressive addition lenses with anti-glare coating) as treatment options for participants who are still symptomatic four weeks out from their concussion. The main outcome is the effectiveness of these three different options in reducing patients' symptoms and improving the participants' visual findings.

Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (FTLD) is the neuropathological term for a collection of rare neurodegenerative diseases that correspond to four main overlapping clinical syndromes: frontotemporal dementia (FTD), primary progressive aphasia (PPA), corticobasal degeneration syndrome (CBS) and progressive supranuclear palsy syndrome (PSPS). The goal of this study is to build a FTLD clinical research consortium to support the development of FTLD therapies for new clinical trials. The consortium, referred to as Advancing Research and Treatment for Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (ARTFL), will be headquartered at UCSF and will partner with six patient advocacy groups to manage the consortium. Participants will be evaluated at 14 clinical sites throughout North America and a genetics core will genotype all individuals for FTLD associated genes.

The major goal of this study is to determine if the innate immune response is dysregulated in people with fibromyalgia, compared to healthy controls. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy will be used to measure changes in the brain's metabolic profile following an experimental immune stimulus, to test whether individuals with fibromyalgia show a heightened immune response in the brain. The ultimate goal of this research is to better understand the role of brain inflammation in the pathophysiology of chronic pain and fatigue, which will guide the development of more effective therapies for these conditions.

Postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) are the most common complication following thoracic surgery. PPCs are associated with prolonged hospital stay, increased morbidity, mortality, ICU admission, and healthcare costs (Azhar, 2015). Current preoperative optimization in this patient group includes smoking cessation and management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease with inhaled bronchodilators and inhaled steroids as indicated. There have been studies using preoperative incentive spirometry in patients undergoing laparotomy with conflicting results, but scant data on its use in patients undergoing one-lung ventilation (Tyson, et al., 2015; Cattano, et al., 2010). A study from 2013 investigated the effectiveness of incentive spirometry in patients following thoracotomy and found conflicting results, without significant improvement in lung function or reduction in PPCs, but a larger difference in frequency of PPC was noted, indicating possible benefit to intervention and a need for further study (Agostini, et al., 2013). Volume-based incentive spirometry pre- and postoperatively has also been found to improve pulmonary function and diaphragm excursion in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery (Alaparthi, et al., 2016). Patients customarily receive an incentive spirometer for use postoperatively in the PACU. There is scant data in the thoracic surgery population concerning prehabilitation by dispensing the incentive spirometer at the PACT evaluation.

The PHITE collaborative team, consisting of Tim Broderick, MD (Overall PI), Wright State University (WSU); Marcas Bamman, PhD (Site PI), The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB); and Ron Evans, PhD and Joe Ecker, PhD, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, are working with funding from the US Department of Defense (DoD), Office of Naval Research (ONR), to explore the link between physical training and epigenetics. This is a key interest area for the DoD ONR because it provides high-impact optimization of force readiness in warfighters with diverse backgrounds. The term epigenetics refers to heritable changes in gene expression (active versus inactive genes) that does not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence; a change in phenotype (the set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment) without a change in genotype (the genetic constitution of an individual organism) . This in turn affects how cells read the genes. Epigenetic change is a regular and natural occurrence but can also be influenced by several factors including age, the environment/lifestyle, and disease state. Epigenetic modifications can manifest as commonly as the manner in which cells terminally differentiate to end up as skin cells, liver cells, brain cells, etc. New and ongoing research is continuously uncovering the role of epigenetics in a variety of human conditions. This study is designed to assess whether epigenetics is a primary mechanism modulating how individuals adapt to specific exercise training prescriptions designed to produce a warfighter phenotype. The PHITE team is organized around a shared test population of human subjects for which UAB will oversee recruitment, training, testing, and sampling. Healthy but untrained volunteers, both men and women, 18-27 y of age-phenotypical of the US warfighter-will participate in a 12-wk, two-arm, single-blind, randomized, exercise dose-response trial comparing two intensities of combined training: Moderate-Intensity vs. High-Intensity. Biospecimens are collected before and after an acute exercise bout in the pre-training state, and again after 12 weeks of 3 d/wk combined exercise training. Numerous phenotyping assessments are collected before after the 12-week intervention period to associate exercise training outcomes with molecular changes in the skeletal muscle and blood biospecimens.
