Childhood chronic vasculitis describes a group of rare life-threatening diseases that have in common inflammation of blood vessels in vital organs such as kidneys, lungs and brain. Most knowledge about them comes from adult patients. Severe disease requires aggressive life-saving treatments with steroids and some cancer drugs which can themselves cause damage, and increase risks of cancer and severe infections. Conversely, milder disease can be treated with less toxic drugs. Different classification and "scoring tools" are used to define the types and severity of vasculitis and to measure damage caused by disease or drugs. These in turn help direct how aggressively to treat a patient and to measure outcome. None of these tools however have been assessed in children and the best balance of disease and treatment risks against outcome for children is not known. Although causes of these diseases in children and adults are probably the same, the effects of the disease and the response (good and bad) to drugs will differ in growing children. Because specialists may see only one new child with vasculitis each year, obtaining enough information to learn about childhood vasculitis requires cooperation. We will use an international web-based registry to which doctors from 50 or more centers can contribute patient data. We will determine the features which help better classify and diagnose children compared to adults. Through the web we will collect and analyze information on patients similarly classified and "scored" so that most successful treatments can be identified. Children with vasculitis are less likely to have diseases associated with aging, alcohol and smoking etc., and therefore may be a better group in whom to study the underlying biology of vasculitis. We will use this opportunity and collect spit, blood and tissue from registry patients for laboratory study with an aim to find biomarkers to better classify, define and direct optimal treatment and outcomes.

The Prophylactic Antibiotic Regimens in Tumor Surgery (PARITY) trial is the first ever international multi-center randomized controlled trial in bone cancer surgery. In order to avoid amputation for bone cancer in the leg, complex limb-saving operations are performed. However, infections with devastating complications following surgery are common. Surgeons from across the world will randomize patients to receive either short- or long-duration antibiotic regimens after surgery with the goal of identifying the best regimen to reduce these infections.

AposTherapy is a home based exercise program utilizing footwear that causes exercise with normal activity that may significantly improve function in patients with knee osteoarthritis since patients with knee osteoarthritis have altered mechanics of motion contributing or due to the presence of the conditions. Capitalizing on the reported excellent adherence and clinical benefit of ApostTherapy in patients with significant knee OA, the investigators propose to evaluate this as a conservative treatment that may supplant/supplement traditional pain medications and physical therapy in an at-risk urban inner city population.

Asthma is a chronic lung condition in children, and often requires hospitalization for acute exacerbations. Azithromycin has been used successfully in other chronic lung diseases, including cystic fibrosis. Despite limited clinical evidence, some pediatricians use azithromycin in children hospitalized with asthma, citing either treatment of atypical pathogens or its proposed anti-inflammatory properties. We propose a clinical trial to determine if azithromycin will shorten length of stay in children hospitalized with acute asthma exacerabations.

This study aims to develop a Mindfulness Smartphone Intervention with Contingency Management (MSI-CM) for smoking cessation that can be readily available to depressed smokers receiving outpatient psychiatric treatment. This project is expected to result in the development of an effective intervention that will produce preliminary data showing increased short-term cessation success in depressed smokers receiving outpatient psychiatric treatment. It is anticipated that this smoking cessation intervention will have potential for broad reach to outpatient psychiatric treatment programs and have a significant overall impact in reducing smoking-related morbidity and mortality by enhancing smoking cessation rates in at-risk populations.

The investigators are conducting a prospective study to determine the safety and outcomes of placebo-controlled graded drug challenges without prior skin testing in patients with a low-risk history of antibiotic hypersensitivity reaction based on history alone. The investigators hypothesize that the rate of reaction to graded drug challenges without prior skin testing in patients with a low-risk history of drug hypersensitivity reaction based on history alone will not be meaningfully more than the rate of reaction to placebo. The investigators hypothesize that the rate of adverse reactions to drug challenges without prior skin testing will not be meaningfully more than the rate of adverse reactions with prior skin testing as was observed in the investigators' historical clinic cohort.

The objectives of the clinical study are to demonstrate the accuracy of our proprietary algorithm method to determine the genetic health of the developing fetuses in a multiple gestation pregnancy from a maternal blood sample. The long term goal of this study will be the development of a method of minimally invasive prenatal diagnosis that has a higher sensitivity and lower false positive rate in the intended population (e.g. multiple gestation pregnancies) than other currently available screening tests. This will result in fewer unnecessary amniocenteses and CVS procedures, which are associated with a risk of miscarriage.

A common feature of ASD is over or under sensitivity to the environment and difficulty putting sensory information together in an orderly way, referred to here as sensory issues. Building on previous work, this study will test the efficacy of Sensory Integration Therapy (SIT), a non-invasive intervention to improve functional skills in children with ASD, in comparison to commonly applied ABA behavioral treatments, in the treatment of ASD symptoms. A total of 180 children with ASD and sensory issues in the greater New York City Metropolitan area will complete this study.
