This phase III trial studies whether pembrolizumab alone as a first-line treatment, followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab after disease progression is superior to induction with pembrolizumab, pemetrexed and carboplatin followed by pembrolizumab and pemetrexed maintenance in treating patients with stage IV non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed and carboplatin, 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. It is not yet known whether giving first-line pembrolizumab followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab works better in treating patients with non-squamous non-small cell cancer.

The investigators propose a single-blind randomized clinical trial to determine if seniors show improved mobility (walking speed) and cognition following motor imagery (imagined walking) training. They hypothesize that imagined walking can be used as a rehabilitative tool for improving walking speed and cognition in the elderly, because it engages and strengthens similar neural systems as actual walking and cognition.

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.

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.

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.

Interferential Current Therapy (IFC) is a form of electrical therapy that utilizes two simultaneous low frequency electrical stimulation which when they cross interfere with one another resulting in an interference or beat frequency. This beat frequency provides a therapeutic area of relief by blocking painful stimuli at the area of interest. IFC is different from the other electrical treatment modalities used because the cancellation effect allows for establishment of the treatment area to be in the deeper tissues of the body, whereas other electrical modalities can only be used to treat superficial body parts that lie just under the skin. The main objective of this proposed study is to assess the post-operative short term outcomes of the patients who receive IFC treatment during their post-total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery hospital stay. The implications of the study would be improved patient outcome which could result in shorter hospital stay, reduced use of opioid medication, decreased need for manipulation under anesthesia and reduced re-admission rate.

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.

The investigators propose a Phase II study, prospective and placebo controlled, of a topical cream containing sodium nitrite compared to the current standard of care. Sodium nitrite is a local donor of nitric oxide, which is known to improve blood flow and decrease bacterial load in the ulcer bed. The primary objectives are to evaluate the safety of topical sodium nitrite cream treatment in patients with sickle cell disease and chronic leg ulcers and to determine its effectiveness in accelerating the healing process and decreasing the pain associated with ulceration. Potential benefit will be a durable resolution or improvement of the leg ulcer and its associated pain. Possible side effects include decreased blood pressure and methemoglobinemia, secondary to sodium nitrite absorption through the ulcerated skin. Funding source FDA OOPD.
