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.

Asthma imposes a significant burden in the US in terms of morbidity, costs to society, individual suffering, loss of productivity and mortality. African Americans (AA) and Hispanic/Latinos (H/L) bear a disproportionate share of that morbidity. Despite national guidelines for asthma treatment, the gap between these groups and whites has been stable or widening. The need for pragmatic research to address the continuing burden is widely recognized. Patients use asthma reliever inhalers to provide immediate relief of symptoms. Controller inhalers (inhaled corticosteroids (ICS)) are intended to be used regularly to prevent symptoms and attacks. Guidelines suggest that they be used daily, on a fixed basis, in all but the mildest asthma. However, adherence by patients and implementation of evidence-based guideline recommendations by clinicians has been poor. Gap analysis suggests that it is difficult to improve adherence to the current recommendations without complex and resource-intensive interventions. Studies have examined symptom-activated use of ICS triggered by use of a reliever medication. The Investigators call this approach PARTICS - Patient Activated Reliever-Triggered Inhaled CorticoSteroid. Explanatory, non-real world studies suggest that PARTICS can produce up to 50% reductions in asthma attacks compared with usual care, while reducing ICS use by half or more. These studies have been performed in pre-selected populations, which represent less than 5% of asthma patients. The previous studies have been done with repeated education and adherence checks in both the intervention and control arms. The investigators have consulted with AA and H/L patients, health care providers, leaders of professional societies, advocacy groups, health policy leaders, pharmacists, and pharmaceutical manufacturers. All groups have indicated that asthma decision making would be changed if we demonstrated that implementing PARTICS improves important asthma outcomes such as reducing exacerbations. The Investigators have designed a study with the stakeholders to determine whether PARTICS can improve outcomes that are important to patients when superimposed on a background provider-educated standard of care through the Asthma IQ system. The Investigators propose a study entitled PREPARE: Patient Empowered Strategy to Reduce Asthma Morbidity in Highly Impacted Populations. The Investigators aim to determine whether PARTICS can reduce asthma morbidity in AA and H/L.

Effective treatment for opioid use disorders (OUDs) requires medications. Two medications for treating OUDs—buprenorphine and injectable naltrexone—can be prescribed in primary care (PC). However, despite the current opioid epidemic and expert recommendations that OUDs should be treated in PC, most PC clinics do not offer treatment for OUDs. This reflects a lack of consensus among health system leaders and clinicians that OUDs should be treated in PC. The PRimary care Opioid Use Disorders treatment (PROUD) Trial is a pragmatic cluster-randomized, quality improvement trial that evaluates implementation of a team-based approach to PC supported by a full time nurse (the "PROUD intervention"). This type of team-based PC is often referred to as "collaborative care" for management of OUDs in PC, and this type of trial is often referred to as a Hybrid Type III implementation trial. The trial is being conducted in 6 diverse health systems spanning 5 states (New York, Florida, Michigan, Texas, and Washington), with 2 PC clinics in each system randomized. One clinic is randomly selected to implement the PROUD intervention and the other continues usual PC (UPC). The overall objective of the PROUD trial is to provide information to guide health system leaders who are faced with the decision of whether or not to treat OUDs in PC, by evaluating the benefits of implementing the PROUD intervention that integrates high quality OUD treatment (i.e. buprenorphine or injectable naltrexone) into the normal flow of PC. The primary objective of the PROUD trial is to evaluate whether the PROUD intervention increases OUD treatment with buprenorphine or injectable naltrexone, documented in the electronic health records (EHRs) of PC patients, over a 2 year follow-up, as compared to UPC. The primary hypothesis is that there will be a significant increase in the number of patient-days of medication treatment for OUDs documented in the EHR of PC patients in the 2 years after clinics are randomized to the PROUD intervention compared to PC clinics randomized to UPC. This implementation objective reflects whether the PROUD intervention increases initiation of and/or retention in OUD treatment, documented in EHRs within medical settings. The main secondary objective is to test the hypothesis that PC patients with OUDs documented in their EHRs in the 3 years prior to randomization who receive care in PROUD intervention clinics, compared to those who receive care in UPC clinics, will have fewer days of acute care utilization (including urgent care, emergency department [ED] and hospital care) in the 2 years after randomization. This effectiveness objective assesses whether implementation of the MA Model improves patient outcomes.

This phase I trial studies the side effect and best dose of ibrutinib in combination with rituximab, etoposide, prednisone, vincristine sulfate, cyclophosphamide, and doxorubicin hydrochloride in treating patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive stage II-IV diffuse large B-cell lymphomas. Ibrutinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide, prednisone, vincristine sulfate, cyclophosphamide, and doxorubicin hydrochloride, 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 ibrutinib and etoposide, prednisone, vincristine sulfate, cyclophosphamide, and doxorubicin hydrochloride may work better in treating patients with HIV-positive diffuse large B-cell lymphomas.

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.

Intensive glucose control in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is associated with clear health benefits (1). However, despite development of insulin analogs, pump/multi-dose treatment and continuous glucose monitoring, maintaining near-normal glycemia remains an elusive goal for most patients, in large part owing to the risk of hypoglycemia. T1DM patients are susceptible to hypoglycemia due to defective counterregulatory responses (CR) characterized by: 1) deficient glucagon release during impending/early hypoglycemia; 2) additional hypoglycemia-associated autonomic failure (HAAF) and exercise-associated autonomic failure (EAAF) that blunt the sympathoadrenal responses to hypoglycemia following repeated episodes of hypoglycemia or exercise as well as degrading other CR; and 3) hypoglycemia unawareness (HU), lowering the threshold for symptoms that trigger behavioral responses (e.g. eating). Thus, the risk of hypoglycemia in T1DM impedes ideal insulin treatment and leads to defaulting to suboptimal glycemic control (2). There are two approaches that could resolve this important clinical problem: 1) perfection of glucose sensing and insulin and glucagon delivery approaches (bioengineered or cell-based) that mimic normal islet function and precisely regulate glucose continuously, or 2) a drug to enhance or normalize the pattern of CR to hypoglycemia. Despite much research and important advances in the field, neither islet transplantation nor biosensor devices have emerged as viable long-term solutions for the majority of patients (3, 4). Over the past several years, our lab has explored the approach of enhancing CR by examining mechanisms responsible for HAAF/EAAF and searching for potential pharmacological methods to modulate the CR to hypoglycemia (5-11). Our work has led to a paradigm shift in the field of hypoglycemia, exemplified by the novel hypothesis and published experimental data supporting a role for opioid signaling that resulted in the initiation of exploratory clinical trials by other research groups.

There are many recent advances in insulin treatment of type 1 diabetes, however after a meal sugars are always a concern. There is a drug Exenatide (Byetta) which is FDA approved to treat people with type 2 diabetes which helps correct their glucoses (sugars) after meals. This study is going to test whether this drug can improve the after meal sugars in people with new onset type 1 diabetes. To test this you will be given a dose of exenatide (1.25 mcg) and long acting insulin or inulin alone before the boost. There is also a placebo group (healthy subjects) who do not get any medication before the boost. Insulin levels and other hormones that affect blood glucose as well as your sugar will be measured by a series of blood tests. The role exenatide as compared to insulin alone will be examined to prevent low blood sugars which might occur because of food staying longer in the stomach than usual or due to the suppression of a hormone called glucagon which increases blood sugar. If you qualify you will be given exenatide (Byetta 1.25 mcg) along with insulin or insulin alone. You and the researchers will not know which dose you are taking at any single visit. A total of 20 people in which some will be children aged 12- 18 years will participate, being diagnosed within 3 months of having been found to have type 1 diabetes.

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.
