This multi-center prospective observational study is designed to track birth outcomes and perinatal correlates to the Panorama prenatal screening test in the general population among ten thousand women who present clinically and elect Panorama microdeletion and aneuploidy screening as part of their routine care. The primary objective is to evaluate the performance of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP)-based Non Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) for 22q11.2 microdeletion (DiGeorge syndrome) in this large cohort of pregnant women. This will be done by performing a review of perinatal medical records and obtaining biospecimens after birth to perform genetic diagnostic testing for 22q11.2 deletion. Results from the follow-up specimens will be compared to those obtained by the Panorama screening test to determine test performance. Specific test performance parameters will include: PPV, specificity, and sensitivity.

People who inject drugs (PWID) represent the overwhelming majority of both HCV and HIV/HCV infected people in the United States. Though new, direct-acting HCV medications are highly efficacious and have the potential to end the HCV epidemic, few PWIDs ever initiate treatment. We seek to improve HCV treatment uptake and cure among HCV and HIV/HCV+ PWIDs by testing a primary care based HCV Group Evaluation and Treatment UPtake (HCV GET-UP) intervention. If efficacious, this innovative care intervention could provide a means to reduce the growing mortality from HCV, as well as decrease the current reservoir for HCV transmission.

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.

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.

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.

RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some find cancer cells and help kill them or carry cancer-killing substances to them. Others interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as bendamustine hydrochloride, also work in different ways to kill cancer cells or stop them from dividing. Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Lenalidomide may stop the growth of mantle cell lymphoma by blocking blood flow to the cancer. It is not yet known whether giving rituximab together with bendamustine and bortezomib is more effective than rituximab and bendamustine, followed by rituximab alone or with lenalidomide in treating mantle cell lymphoma. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial studies rituximab, bortezomib, bendamustine, and lenalidomide in treating previously untreated older patients with mantle cell lymphoma.

The primary objective of this study is to assess the utility of ultrasound guidance in the closed reduction of pediatric forearm fractures in the pediatric emergency department. The investigators will compare post-reduction radiologic outcomes between the experimental group (ultrasound guided closed forearm fracture reduction) and control group (standard of care blinded closed forearm fracture reduction) to determine if there is a difference in the number of adequate reductions between groups. Secondary objectives include comparing provider satisfaction with the reduction procedure, number of patients requiring repeat reductions, time for reduction, number of patients requiring operative repair after reduction, with the reduction procedure and comparison between post-reduction ultrasound and x-ray interpretation.

Methods: Double blinded, randomized controlled trial with 1:1 allocation of mifepristone or placebo at initiation of induction of labor for fetal demise 20 weeks estimated gestational age or greater. Hypothesis: Mifepristone will expedite time to delivery of fetus among demise patients, when compared to placebo, and in conjunction with other pharmacologic methods for induction of labor. Expected outcomes: The addition of a progesterone receptor modulator will expedite time to delivery of the fetus and ultimately improve the experience associated with induction of labor for fetal demise.
