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 Role of Hepatic Denervation in the Dysregulation of Glucose Metabolism in Liver Transplant Recipients

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).

The goal of this study is to get a better understanding of the impact of Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) on the quality of life of patients with this condition. Patients with HS will be asked questions about demographics including gender, age, and ethnicity. They will also be asked to complete questionnaires to determine how their skin condition affects their life. Study participation will last for 1 day, with potential for follow-up in the future. We hope this information will help us improve our treatment for this skin condition.

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.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

The purpose of the study is to establish clinical determinants of poor cognitive and physical functional outcome of CCI patients so that the investigators may develop and validate a multi-dimensional clinical prediction model to more effectively inform decision making earlier in the course of the ICU care. The investigators hypothesize that multiple premorbid and acute factors measured early in the course of CCI will have strong independent associations with functional recovery. The investigators further hypothesize that social and economic factors are associated with long-term functional outcomes independent of the acute clinical problems.

There is a lack of prospective trial data and consensus guidelines describing the use of Fractionated Stereotactic Radiation Therapy (FSRT) in the treatment of brain metastases. There has been no prospective dose escalation study performed to date to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) in patients treated with FSRT. Prescription doses in the series described above ranged from 18 Gy to 42 Gy, delivered in 3 to 12 fractions. The results of this study will be used to plan future Phase II/III studies to determine the efficacy of different dose fractionation schedules of FSRT. We thus propose a phase I study to determine the feasibility and safety of FSRT in patients with brain metastases.

This randomized controlled trial will include Latino and Black adolescents with asthma ages 10-17 years old and their caregivers. Participants will be recruited from clinics in the Bronx, NY. The primary aims are to examine the efficacy of peak expiratory flow (PEF) prediction with feedback versus control feedback on 1) under-perception of asthma symptoms 2) controller medication adherence and 3) asthma control and emergency health care use. These aims will be examined across a 1-year follow-up. An exploratory aim examines the hypothesized pathway that the PEF intervention reduces under-perception of symptoms, shifts illness representations toward the professional model and increases adolescents' and parents' asthma management self-efficacy, resulting in greater medication adherence and improved asthma control.
