This is a Phase II multi-center, randomized, double-blind, 24-week, 3-arm, parallel group, placebo-controlled study to investigate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of balovaptan (RO5285119) in children and adolescents aged 5-17 years with ASD who are high functioning (intelligence quotient [IQ] greater than or equal to [>=] 70). Enrollment will be staggered, starting first with adolescents (aged 13 to 17 years) and then with children (aged 5 to 12 years). Initially, a first cohort of approximately 24 adolescents will be enrolled together. Based on pharmacokinetic evaluation, safety, and tolerability in the first adolescent cohort and determined final doses, enrollment of adolescents will resume and the enrollment of a first cohort of approximately 24 children (aged 5 to 12 years) can commence. Based on acceptable safety and tolerability in the first children cohort and determined final doses, enrollment of children will resume.

Central Mechanisms That Regulate Glucose Metabolism in Humans
Albert Einstein College of Medicine Type 2 Diabetes

Increased endogenous glucose production (EGP) is the major cause of postabsorptive hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). While EGP is inhibited by both glucose and insulin in non-diabetic animals and humans, T2DM is associated with increased EGP despite elevated plasma glucose and insulin concentrations. In fact, we and others have reported direct inhibitory effects of hyperglycemia itself on EGP in nondiabetic subjects, independent of other hormonal or metabolic signals, which are markedly blunted in subjects with T2DM. The medial hypothalamus mediates hormonal signals which affect glucose metabolism. ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channels are expressed in the hypothalamus and can be activated by insulin. Activation of these channels appears to be an important common mechanism whereby both systemic glucose and insulin suppress EGP, and may account for almost 50% of EGP suppression by both agents. Diazoxide has been shown to inhibit EGP in rodents via the activation of these KATP channels in the hypothalamus, while the KATP channel inhibitor glyburide blocks these effects. There is evidence to suggest that central activation of KATP channels is still able to suppress EGP in animal models that are otherwise resistant to the effects of systemic glucose and insulin.

This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well giving maintenance chemotherapy with or without local consolidation therapy works in treating patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. Drugs used in maintenance chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, pemetrexed disodium, erlotinib hydrochloride, and gemcitabine work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Local consolidation therapy such as radiation/stereotactic body radiation or surgery may kill cancer cells left after initial treatment. Giving maintenance chemotherapy and local consolidation therapy together may work better than maintenance chemotherapy alone in treating patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer.

This randomized phase III trial studies brentuximab vedotin and combination chemotherapy to see how well they work compared to combination chemotherapy alone in treating children and young adults with stage IIB or stage IIIB-IVB Hodgkin lymphoma. Combinations of biological substances in brentuximab vedotin may be able to carry cancer-killing substances directly to Hodgkin lymphoma cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, bleomycin sulfate, vincristine sulfate, etoposide, prednisone, and cyclophosphamide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known if combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without brentuximab vedotin in treating Hodgkin lymphoma.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well crizotinib works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been removed by surgery and has a mutation in a protein called anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Mutations, or changes, in ALK can make it very active and important for tumor cell growth and progression. Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the ALK protein from working. Crizotinib may be an effective treatment for patients with non-small cell lung cancer and an ALK fusion mutation.

Methadone has several advantages over standard narcotic medications, especially when considering use after a typically painful surgery such as lumbar fusion. Methadone is low cost, has a long half-life, has a convenient dosing schedule, has excellent oral bioavailability, and demonstrates slow onset to withdrawal. The literature comparing methadone to more commonly used post-operative narcotics demonstrates that it manages pain better, sustains consistent plasma concentrations, decreases overall narcotic requirement, results in no additional adverse events, and is safe, even in children, across several studies. Since the standard of care is non-methadone narcotic usage to manage the significant pain of complex spinal surgery cases, it is understandable that methadone could be a desirable alternative to promote sustained pain control and early ambulation in these patients. The goal of this study is to compare the effect of a single dose of methadone administered intraoperatively in enrolled spinal fusion patients to their historical controls given fentanyl and morphine, and determine if more sustained pain control during the first few days after surgery provides a better subjective experience for the patient with less pain, which allows them to ambulate and leave the hospital sooner than patients given a standard regimen.
