177Lu-PSMA-617 Managed Access Program for mCRPC Patients
The purpose of this Cohort Treatment Plan is to allow access to 177Lu-PSMA-617 for eligible patients diagnosed with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). The patient's treating physician should follow the suggested treatment guidelines and comply with all local health authority regulations.
Zoledronic Acid and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Metastatic Osteosarcoma
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the side effects and best dose of zoledronic acid when given together with combination chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed metastatic osteosarcoma.
Zemedy Application for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Zoster Eye Disease Study
This is a multi-center, randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled clinical trial of suppressive valacyclovir for one year in immunocompetent study participants with an episode of dendriform epithelial keratitis, stromal keratitis, endothelial keratitis, and/or iritis due to Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus (HZO) in the year prior to enrollment.
Weight Loss Diet Study: Low Carb vs Low Fat
The traditional weight loss diet recommended by health professionals has been a low-fat, high-carbohydrate, calorie restricted diet. This recommendation has been challenged by a number of alternative dietary strategies, particularly low-carbohydrate diets. In several recent weight loss studies insulin resistant adults had more success with low- vs. high-carbohydrate diets, in contrast to insulin sensitive adults who had either more success or comparable success with the low-fat diets. The investigators plan to enroll 80 people with a wide range of insulin sensitivity/resistance. After determining their insulin resistance status, the investigators will split them in the middle and randomly assign them to one of four groups: (1) Low-Carbohydrate/Insulin Resistant (LC/IR); (2) Low-Carbohydrate/Insulin Sensitive (LC/IS); (3) Low-Fat/Insulin Resistant (LF/IR); and (4) Low-Fat/Insulin Sensitive (LF/IS) (20 people/group). The purpose of this study is to determine whether weight loss success can be increased if one follows the dietary approach appropriately matched to their insulin resistance status.
177Lu-PSMA-R2 in Patients With PSMA Positive Progressive, Metastatic, Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer
This Phase 1/2 study is intended to investigate the safety, tolerability, and radiation dosimetry of 177Lu-PSMA-R2 and further assess preliminary efficacy data in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). The Phase 1 portion of the study will determine the recommended dose of 177Lu-PSMA-R2 for radio-ligand therapy (RLT) of mCRPC, and the Phase 2 portion will expand into approximately 60 patients documenting the preliminary activity (anti-tumor response) of repeated treatments administered, continuing safety assessments and collecting QoL data.
68Ga-DOTA-Bombesin PET/MRI in Imaging Patients With Prostate Cancer
This clinical trial studies the use of gallium-68 (68Ga)-DOTA-Bombesin as the imaging agent for positron emission tomography (PET)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), collectively PET-MRI, in patients with prostate cancer. PET uses a radioactive substance called 68Ga-DOTA-Bombesin, which attaches to tumor cells with specific receptors on their surfaces. The PET scanner takes pictures that capture where the radioactive drug is "lighting up" and attaching to tumor cells, which may help doctors recognize differences between tumor and healthy prostate tissue. MRI uses radio waves and a magnet to make a picture of areas inside the body. Using 68Ga-DOTA-Bombesin in diagnostic procedures, such as PET/MRI, may allow doctors to identify smaller tumors than standard imaging.
[18F]DASA-23 and PET Scan in Evaluating Pyruvate Kinase M2 Expression in Patients With Intracranial Tumors or Recurrent Glioblastoma and Healthy Volunteers
This phase I trial studies how well [18F]DASA-23 and positron emission tomography (PET) scan work in evaluating pyruvate kinase M2 (PKM2) expression in patients with intracranial tumors or recurrent glioblastoma and healthy volunteers. PKM2 regulates brain tumor metabolism, a key factor in glioblastoma growth. [18F]DASA-23 is a radioactive substance with the ability to monitor PKM2 activity. A PET scan is a procedure in which a small amount of a radioactive substance, such as [18F]DASA-23, is injected into a vein, and a scanner is used to make detailed, computerized pictures of areas inside the body where the substance is used. Tumor cells usually pick up more of these radioactive substances, allowing them to be found. Giving [18F]DASA-23 with a PET scan may help doctors evaluate PKM2 expression in healthy volunteers and in participants with intracranial tumors or recurrent glioblastoma.
131I-Omburtamab, in Recurrent Medulloblastoma and Ependymoma
A Phase 2 study investigating the addition of cRIT 131I-omburtamab to irinotecan, temozolomide, and bevacizumab for patients with recurrent medulloblastoma. A feasibility cohort is included to assess the feasibility of incorporating cRIT 131I-omburtamab for patients with recurrent ependymoma.
Direct intraventricular delivery of radiolabeled tumor-specific antibodies may aid in both the detection and treatment of recurrent disease for these highly specific pediatric patients with recurrent tumors.
68Ga-PSMA PET/CT or PET/MRI in Evaluating Patients With Recurrent Prostate Cancer
This clinical trial studies gallium-68 (68Ga)-prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) (gallium Ga 68-labeled PSMA ligand Glu-urea-Lys[Ahx]) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) or PET/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in identifying tumors in patients with prostate cancer that has come back after a period of improvement (recurrent). 68Ga-PSMA is a radioactive drug that may attach to specific prostate cancer cells and light up. Scanners, such as PET/CT or PET/MRI, can then be used to take pictures of the body to see where the cancer is. Using 68Ga-PSMA for PET/CT or PET/MRI may allow doctors to identify smaller tumors than standard methods.
2019-06 TRISCEND Study
Early feasibility study to assess safety and performance of the Edwards EVOQUE Tricuspid Valve Replacement System
[18F]FTC-146 PET/MRI in Healthy Volunteers and in CRPS and Sciatica
Chronic pain can result from injured or inflamed nerves, as occurs in people suffering from sciatica and CRPS. These nerve injuries or regions of nerve irritation are often the cause of pain in these conditions, but the current diagnostic tools are limited in pinpointing the area of origin. Several studies have implicated involvement of sigma-1 receptors in the generation and perpetuation of chronic pain conditions, others are investigating anti sigma-1 receptor drugs for the treatment of chronic pain. Using the sigma-1 receptor (S1R) detector and experimental radiotracer [18F]FTC-146 and positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI) scanner, the researchers may potentially identify the source of pain generation in patients suffering from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and chronic sciatica. The ultimate goal is to assist in the optimization of pain treatment regimens using an [18F]FTC-146 PET/MRI scan.
The study is not designed to induce any physiological/pharmacological effect.
World-wide Randomized Antibiotic Envelope Infection Prevention Trial
Medtronic , Inc. is sponsoring the World-wide Randomized Antibiotic Envelope Infection Prevention Trial (WRAP-IT), a randomized, prospective, multi-center, single blinded, post-market, interventional clinical study. This study will evaluate the ability of the TYRX™ envelope to reduce major Cardiac Implantable Electronic Device (CIED) infections through 12-months post-procedure following CIED generator replacement, upgrade, revision, or de novo cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) implant. Additionally, this large device study provides the unique opportunity to prospectively characterize the performance of Medtronic's lead monitoring features in subjects whose CIED system includes a transvenous right ventricular (RV) defibrillation lead. Finally, the WRAP-IT study will serve as a post-approval study for those geographies requiring a post-approval study of the TYRX™ envelope.
18F-DCFPyL PET/MRI in Regional Nodal&Distant Metastases Detection in Intermediate &HR Prostate Cancer
The purpose of this research study is to see if patients' tumor can be identified by 18F-DCFPyL PET/MRI scan. The radioactive study agent, 18FDCFPyL, combined with PET/MRI scan may be able to identify smaller tumors than the standard of care contrast-enhanced CT or MRI scan.
