Despite emergence of new anticoagulants over the last few years, patients with advanced chronic kidney disease still have limited options and are usually managed with warfarin after venous thromboembolism or diagnosis of atrial fibrillation. The use of all direct oral anticoagulants is not recommended in patients with creatinine clearance below 15 mL/min. Apixaban has the lowest fraction of renal excretion (27%) and is sometimes used in patients with CKD V (GFR < 15 mL/min/BSA) and end stage renal disease (ESRD). Until recently, data on apixaban use in this population were limited to pharmacodynamics as patients with severe renal impairment were excluded from clinical trials. In a 2016 study, it was found that ESRD resulted in 36% increase in apixaban AUC but no increase in Cmax, and that hemodialysis had a limited impact on apixaban clearance.1 There are now data available on inpatient use of apixaban vs.coumadin in patients with creatinine clearance below 25 ml/min.2 There was no significant difference in bleeding events between the two groups but the study period was limited to a hospital admission and may not reflect bleeding risk of long-term anticoagulation. Use of warfarin in patients on hemodialysis entails several disadvantages in this population. The need for INR monitoring adds clinic visits for patients that already spend a great portion of their time in healthcare facilities. Numerous drug interactions, involving warfarin, complicate management of ESRD patients that are often on many medications. The reduced risk of intracranial bleeding on apixaban, compared to warfarin, in the ARISTOTLE study, is an important consideration in patients that may already be at increased risk due other factors such as uremia and concurrent antiplatelet agents.

The purpose of this study is to collect and compare information on how and when adolescent heart transplant recipients take their prescribed medication. The investigators want to find out if regular use of 'an app' on cell phones, called the Teen Pocket PATH® (TPP), can help adolescents take their medication according to their prescribed dosing schedule. This may then help reduce complications of transplant, such as rejection. The investigators also want to find out if how adolescent heart transplant recipients take their medications affects the development of antibodies in their blood. Antibodies are small proteins in the blood that may develop after heart transplantation, and which can sometimes damage a new heart.

The response to therapy with a fixed dose combination of isosorbide dinitrate and hydralazine (FDC I/H) is enhanced in African Americans with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) when compared to similar white cohorts. This study will seek to confirm the previous genetic sub-study from AHeFT which suggested a functional polymorphism of guanine nucleotide binding protein beta polypeptide 3 subunit (GNB3), C825T in exon 10, influences the therapeutic efficacy of FDC I/H. This study will initiate treatment with FDC I/H in 500 self designated African American subjects with systolic heart failure. They will be followed for up to two years on therapy. Clinical outcomes (survival, heart failure hospitalizations, and change in quality of life) on FDC I/H will be compared by GNB3 genotype subset. The hypothesis to be confirmed is that subjects homozygous for the T allele (those with the GNB3 TT genotype which is present in approximately 50% of black subjects) demonstrate enhanced therapeutic benefit from FDC I/H.

Based on promising data from our laboratory demonstrating synergy between ablative local radiotherapy and FLT3 ligand immunotherapy in murine NSCLC models, investigators are performing a phase II study combining FLT3L immunotherapy and SBRT for patients with advanced NSCLC that has progressed following standard systemic therapy. All patients will receive daily subcutaneous injections of CDX-301 (75 µg/kg) for 5 days, beginning on the first day of SBRT. SBRT will be delivered to a single pulmonary lesion. Depending on the size and location of the target lesion, the SBRT regimen will be 34 Gy x 1 (peripheral tumors smaller than 2 cm and not adjacent to the chest wall), 18 Gy x 3 (peripheral tumors not eligible for 34 Gy x 1), or 10 Gy x 5 (central tumors). The primary endpoint will be progression-free survival at 4 months, defined using immune-related response criteria (irRC). A total of 29 patients will be enrolled.

Approximately 2% of neonates in the US are born very preterm. Preterm births are associated with impaired cognitive, language and motor function, and increased risk for autism spectrum disorders. Epidemiological studies indicate a dose-response relationship between gestational age at delivery and cognitive impairments, with the most immature of newborns being the most susceptible to developmental delays. Sensitive and reproducible biomarkers of long-term neurocognitive impairments are currently lacking. The investigators seek to identify epigenetic markers that mediate the relationship between adverse prematurity-related exposures and neurocognitive impairments. The overarching hypothesis of this proposal is that DNA methylation profiles of CD34+ hematopoetic progenitor and stem cells from very preterm infants can be used as a risk-stratifying biomarker for predicting neurocognitive impairment in childhood.

The best available evidence suggests that pregnancy after breast cancer does not increase a woman's risk of developing a recurrence from her breast cancer. In particular, the most recent data suggest that this is the case also in women with a hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. There is also no indication of increased risk for delivery complications or for the newborn. The aim of the study is to investigate if temporary interruption of endocrine therapy, with the goal to permit pregnancy, is associated with a higher risk of breast cancer recurrence.The study aims also to evaluate different specific indicators related to fertility, pregnancy and breast cancer biology in young women. A psycho-oncological companion study on fertility concerns, psychological well-being and decisional conflicts will be conducted in interested Centers.

People who Inject Drugs (PWIDs) constitute 60% of the approximately 5 million people in the United States infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV). Successful HCV treatment leading to sustained viral response (SVR) is associated with increased survival, but to date successful treatment of PWIDs has been limited. Treatment of PWIDs is complex due to addiction, mental illness, poverty, homelessness, lack of positive social support, poor adherence-related skills, low motivation and knowledge, and poor access to and trust in the health care system. At Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the investigators have developed a multidisciplinary model of HCV care that integrates on-site primary care, substance abuse treatment, and HCV-related care within opiate agonist treatment clinics. To optimize HCV treatment outcomes, the investigators have introduced directly observed therapy (DOT). In our DOT model, one daily dose of oral HCV medication is administered with methadone. However, DOT is not feasible for PWIDs who are not enrolled in methadone maintenance treatment programs, and is less effective for methadone-maintained PWIDs who do not attend the methadone clinics every day. In addition, DOT has been used for decades both to measure and maximize adherence for treatment of tuberculosis infection, but the cost and logistical complexity of administering DOT for large HCV clinical programs would be prohibitive.

VIVID is a prospective, multicenter, randomized clinical trial that will evaluate three specific research questions. In black patients eligible for a primary prevention implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), 1) what is the effect of a patient-centered educational video compared with usual care (UC) on knowledge of SCD (Sudden Cardiac Death), associated risk factors, and ICDs; 2) what is the effect of a patient-centered educational video compared with UC on the decision for ICD implantation, decisional conflict, and receipt of an ICD within 90 days of the decision; 3) what is the effect of racial concordance between study patients and video participants (health care providers/patients) on the decision for ICD implantation, decisional conflict and ICD receipt within 90 days of the decision. In addition, in-depth qualitative interviews (IQI) with a sample of trial participants will be conducted to determine the salient influences on their decision and explore the reasons for their ultimate decision and subsequent implantation or non-implantation of an ICD. Approximately 480 patients eligible for a primary prevention ICD will be enrolled at approximately 12 hospitals in this study. Study sites selected for VIVID will be geographically diverse and provide care to a significant proportion of racial and ethnic minority patients. Patient's will be mailed a letter, regarding the study, prior to their initial visit. At the initial visit, patients will be approached about participation in the trial. For those interested, informed consent will be obtained and patients will be randomized. The investigators will be utilizing electronic consents on an iPad. Black patients will be randomized to one of 3 arms: educational videos presented in the same format; one with black participants (patients and providers) or the other with white participants (patients and providers); The third arm will be usual care (control) and the provider can interact with the patient consistent with their typical/usual care. Notably, for both intervention and control arms, all patient management decisions are completely at the discretion of the care providers.

Seven-point capillary profiles have shown that mean glucose correlates with both diabetic retinopathy and nephropathy risk. However, there remains great controversy as to whether the degree of variability around mean glucose may also contribute to these microvascular complications. The PERL trial (NCT02017171), testing whether treatment with allopurinol can slow down kidney function loss in type 1 diabetes, provides a unique opportunity to assess the role of glycemic variability in the progression of diabetic kidney disease in individuals who already have mild to moderate kidney disease. By applying Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) in the PERL Study population, the investigators will be able to better understand how metrics of glycemia (mean, time above and below range, and various measures of variability) are associated with renal outcomes in the PERL population as a whole, but also in important subgroups (e.g., albuminuric vs. normoalbuminuric subjects with ongoing GFR decline, allopurinol vs. placebo arms). The nvestigators also aim to obtain precise information on the range of blood glucose corresponding to any given HbA1c value in this population since previous studies generally excluded patients with renal disease.
