Type 2 diabetes affects the ability of the body to process glucose (sugar). Under fasting conditions, the liver is able to make sugar to maintain glucose levels in an important process called endogenous glucose production (EGP). Previous studies suggest that the central nervous system (CNS), including the brain, helps to regulate levels of glucose in the body by communicating with the liver. This process can be impaired in people with type 2 diabetes, and can contribute to the high level of glucose seen in these individuals. The purpose of this study is to understand how activating control centers of the brain with a medication called diazoxide can affect how much glucose (sugar) is made by the liver. This is particularly important for people with diabetes who have very high production of glucose, which in turn can lead to diabetes complications.

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.

The overall goal of this study is to develop a new and practical way to prevent the development of Hypoglycemia Associated Autonomic Failure (HAAF), which is unawareness of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in individuals with diabetes. Previous studies suggest that both naloxone and diazoxide may increase the body's ability to respond to episodes of low blood sugar and prevent the development of HAAF (or hypoglycemia unawareness). Only healthy subjects are being recruited for this study. The study has three distinct phases. In the first phase, healthy, non-diabetic individuals who are susceptible to developing HAAF are identified. Only these individuals will be studied in the second and third phases. The second phase of this study evaluates the effect of using a naloxone nasal spray versus a placebo nasal spray in improving the body's response to episodes of low blood sugar and in preventing the development of HAAF. The third phase of this study evaluates the effect of using naloxone nasal spray and diazoxide in combination, compared to naloxone nasal spray plus a placebo (for diazoxide) or diazoxide plus a placebo (for naloxone) in improving the body's response to episodes of low blood sugar and in preventing the development of HAAF.

This pilot clinical trial studies adaptive staged stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in treating patients with spinal metastases that cannot be removed by surgery. SBRT is a specialized radiation therapy that delivers a single, high dose of radiation directly to the tumor and may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Adaptive SBRT uses information gathered during treatment to inform, guide, and alter future radiation treatments. Staged SBRT uses multiple treatments separated by 2-3 weeks. Giving adaptive staged SBRT may work better in treating spinal metastases that cannot be removed by surgery.

It is believed that important brain centers send signals through the vagus nerve to the liver to suppress the amount of glucose (sugar) that gets produced. People who have received liver transplants have had their vagus nerve cut during transplantation, and many of these individuals have diabetes at one year post-transplant. The goals of this study are: to see whether metabolic control centers in the brain can still be activated normally with the medication diazoxide in patients who have had a liver transplant, and to understand whether disrupting the vagus nerve would result in excess glucose being produced by the liver (ie. a potential mechanism for why these patients develop diabetes).

This is a clinical study investigating the new treatment of surgery combined with intraperitoneal mitomycin-C for patients with gastrointestinal cancer that has spread to the peritoneal (abdominal cavity) surface. Mitomycin-C to be used in this procedure is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)for many different cancers including gastrointestinal cancer. Giving mitomycin C via the intraperitoneal route is not FDA approved and is an investigation therapy. Cytoreductive surgery plus intraperitoneal chemotherapy can be offered as standard of care outside of a clinical trial. However, since this is an unproven and potentially more effective but a more toxic approach, the investigators are performing this procedure under an IRB approved clinical trial in order to better evaluate the risks and benefits of this approach. A standardized, evidence-based approach is currently lacking for patients with peritoneal surface malignancy from gastrointestinal origin. A clinical trial with surgical quality assurance and modern hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy incorporating critical assessment of disease burden, determinants of complete cytoreduction, treatment-related toxicity, quality of life and survival is imperative. Theoretically, cytoreductive surgery is performed to treat macroscopic disease, and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy is used to treat microscopic residual disease with the objective of removing disease completely in a single procedure.

QT interval prolongation and neutropenia are considered to be important identified risks for ribociclib (Kisqali® Prescribing Information, Investigator Brochure). The approved dosing regimen of ribociclib is 600 mg daily (QD) on a 3 weeks on/1 week off schedule. The purpose of the study is to explore whether a reduced dosing regimen of 400 mg ribociclib orally QD 3 weeks on/1 week off may decrease the risk of QTc prolongation without compromising the efficacy of ribociclib in combination with an NSAI in pre- and postmenopausal women with HR-positive, HER2-negative aBC who have received no prior therapy for advanced disease. The risks of other AEs of special interest, such as neutropenia and hepatobiliary toxicity will be evaluated in this study as well. Approximately 350 patients will be randomly assigned to one of the below treatment arms in a 1:1 ratio: Experimental arm (Arm 1) - Ribociclib 400 mg QD 3 weeks on/1 week off + NSAI (+ goserelin in premenopausal women): 175 patients Control arm (Arm 2) - Ribociclib 600 mg QD 3 weeks on/1 week off + NSAI (+ goserelin in premenopausal women): 175 patients Randomization will be stratified by the presence of lung and/or liver metastases (yes versus no).

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an empagliflozin dosing regimen and one dose of linagliptin in patients with type 2 diabetes who are aged 10 to below 18 years and are currently taking metformin, insulin or both drugs (DINAMO TM) or who are treatment naïve or not on active treatment after metformin withdrawal (DINAMO TM MONO) . Empagliflozin and linagliptin are both approved for use in adult patients with type 2 diabetes. This study will assess how well empagliflozin and linagliptin work by finding out how these treatments affect blood glucose (sugar) levels compared to placebo (a pill that contains no active drug), in children and adolescents. Empagliflozin and linagliptin are considered investigational products in this study since while they have been approved for use in adults, they have not been approved for children and adolescents due to lack of clinical studies in this specific population. Patients with type 2 diabetes have higher levels of blood glucose (sugar) than patients who do not have this disease. The high level of sugar in the blood can lead to serious short-term and long-term medical problems. The main goal of treating diabetic patients is to lower blood glucose to a normal level. Lowering and controlling blood glucose help prevent or delay complications of diabetes such as heart disease, kidney, eye and nerve diseases, and the possibility of amputation. Empagliflozin is a drug that helps to reduce blood glucose (sugar) levels by causing glucose to be excreted in the urines. Linagliptin works by increasing the production of insulin (a hormone that controls the level of blood glucose) after meals when blood glucose (sugar) levels are too high. This helps to lower blood sugar levels. The subject will either receive one of the active study drugs or a placebo. This study will be double blind; this means that neither the subject, nor the study doctor will know which treatment the subject will receive. Which treatment the subject receives is decided by a computer, purely by chance; this is called a "random assignment". For this study, there will first be a screening visit, followed by a 2-week placebo run-in period (all subjects will take placebo once daily). This run-in period is designed to ensure subjects are able to take the study drugs as described in the study protocol. Thereafter there will be a 26-week treatment phase (week 1-week 26) and a 26-week safety extension period (week 27-week 52). Following this there will be a follow-up visit at week 55. On Day 1 after the placebo run-in phase, the subject will be randomly assigned to receive one of the 3 treatments: empagliflozin 10 mg, linagliptin 5 mg or placebo in a blinded manner. This treatment will continue up to week 14. Then after week 14, the subject will be assigned to receive one of the following 4 treatments: empagliflozin 10 mg, empagliflozin 25 mg, linagliptin 5 mg or placebo in a blinded manner. The drugs assigned after week 14 will be the same drugs as on Day 1 but some subjects will receive a higher dose of empagliflozin. After the completion of the 26-week treatment period, the subject will enter a 26-week safety extension period. The same active treatment that the subject had been assigned to at week 14 visit will be continued. Subjects assigned to placebo on Day 1 will be randomly assigned to receive one of the 3 active treatments: empagliflozin 10 mg, empagliflozin 25 mg or linagliptin 5 mg in a blinded manner. This safety extension period is primarily designed to provide additional information on how well empagliflozin and linagliptin are tolerated. Following the treatment phases, there will be a follow-up visit at week 55 Intervention model description: Eligible subjects with HbA1c of 6.5% to 10.5% at screening will be randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive empagliflozin 10 mg, linagliptin 5 mg or placebo. HbA1c assessment will be performed at Week 12. All subjects with Week 12 HbA1c < 7% will remain on previously assigned randomized treatment. Subjects taking empagliflozin with Week 12 HbA1c >= 7% will be re-randomized in a 1:1 ratio to continue on the low dose treatment (empagliflozin 10 mg) or up-titrate to the high dose treatment (empagliflozin 25 mg). Subjects taking linagliptin or placebo with Week 12 HbA1c >= 7% will remain on previously assigned treatment. All subjects will get new medication kits dispensed at Week 14 to maintain the blinding. At Week 26, all subjects previously assigned to placebo will be re-randomized in a 1:1:1: ratio to receive one of the active treatments: empagliflozin 10 mg, empagliflozin 25 mg or linagliptin 5 mg. All subjects will get new medication kits dispensed at Week 14 to maintain the blinding.
