This study will investigate the safety and efficacy of the investigational use of the HydraSolve T2D™ System in improving blood glucose control and insulin resistance in patients with obesity (Class 1, BMI 30-35 kg/m2) and type 2 diabetes who have not achieved targeted levels of blood glucose control using oral diabetes medications. The previously FDA-cleared (for liposuction and fat transfer) HydraSolve T2D™ System will be used to perform a novel, minimally invasive laparoscopic and mini-laparotomy procedure to selectively remove excess intra-abdominal fat from the mesentery (Mesenteric Visceral Lipectomy (MVL)), while not affecting surrounding tissues. The study will include several weeks of screening for eligibility before the intervention, and 12-months of follow-up post-surgery.

This study evaluates the use of carfilzomib in combination with cyclophosphamide and etoposide for children with relapsed/refractory solid tumors or leukemia. The medications cyclophosphamide and etoposide are standard drugs often used together for the treatment of cancer in children with solid tumors or leukemia. Carfilzomib is FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved in the United States for adults with multiple myeloma (a type of cancer). However, this drug is not approved for the disease being treated in this study. Since carfilzomib has not yet been used in this setting to treat this condition, the investigators must first find the best dose to give. The investigators are looking for the highest dose of carfilzomib that can be given safely. Therefore, not all children taking part in this study will receive the same dose of the study drug in the first part of the trial.

This phase II trial studies how well veliparib, radiation therapy, and temozolomide work in treating patients with newly diagnosed malignant glioma without H3 K27M or BRAFV600 mutations. Poly adenosine diphosphate (ADP) ribose polymerases (PARPs) are proteins that help repair DNA mutations. PARP inhibitors, such as veliparib, can keep PARP from working, so tumor cells can't repair themselves, and they may stop growing. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, 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. Giving veliparib, radiation therapy, and temozolomide may work better in treating patients with newly diagnosed malignant glioma without H3 K27M or BRAFV600 mutations compared to radiation therapy and temozolomide alone.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well combination chemotherapy (vincristine sulfate, dactinomycin, cyclophosphamide alternated with vincristine sulfate and irinotecan hydrochloride or vinorelbine) works compared to combination chemotherapy plus temsirolimus in treating patients with rhabdomyosarcoma (cancer that forms in the soft tissues, such as muscle), and has an intermediate chance of coming back after treatment (intermediate risk). Drugs used in chemotherapy 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. Combination chemotherapy and temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy or combination chemotherapy plus temsirolimus is more effective in treating patients with intermediate-risk rhabdomyosarcoma.

This randomized phase III trial compares immunotherapy drugs (nivolumab or brentuximab vedotin) when given with combination chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage III or IV classic Hodgkin lymphoma. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Brentuximab vedotin is a monoclonal antibody, brentuximab, linked to a toxic agent called vedotin. Brentuximab attaches to cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers vedotin to kill them. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine, 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. The addition of nivolumab or brentuximab vedotin to combination chemotherapy may shrink the cancer or extend the time without disease symptoms coming back.

Purpose/Objectives: To investigate the effect of hyperglucagonemia on insulin action, particularly on adipose tissue. Research Design/Plan: Normal glucose tolerant subjects will be studied. Study subjects will receive a continuous glucagon infusion for 12 hours. Following glucagon infusion, subjects will receive prime-continuous tracer infusions for additional 4 hours to measure adipocyte metabolism. Within 6-8 weeks, subjects will return for a repeat study with normal saline as a control group. Methods: All subjects will have an oral glucose tolerance test prior to participation to confirm they are normal glucose tolerant. Subjects will be admitted to the CRC at 4 PM and will receive a continuous glucagon for 12 hours. At 6 AM on the following morning, subjects will receive prime-continuous tracer infusions of the following for 4 hours (14C-glycerol, 3-3H glucose, and D2O). At 10 AM continuous indirect calorimetry will be performed to determine rates of energy expenditure and glucose/lipid oxidation for 40 minutes. At 6 AM a surgical biopsy of abdominal adipose tissue will be performed for measurement of adipocyte metabolism. At 8 AM, the study team will infuse insulin/glucose to test for insulin sensitivity. Clinical Relevance: The results of this study will help the study team to further understand the pathophysiology of metabolic disturbances that is induced by hyperglucagonemia in type 2 diabetes patients.

The primary objective of this study is to compare Assay results to diagnoses determined by currently accepted standards for lung cancer detection. This will be accomplished by analysis of sputum samples from three cohorts including healthy Participants, high risk Participants, and cancer patient Participants using the Assay as developed in accordance with findings of bioAffinity protocol BA-001 to confirm assay results. Adjustments will be made as necessary to finalize Assay design for clinical trials and commercialization. The secondary objective of this study is to determine optimum methods for collection of sputum samples. Three sputum collection methods used by high risk Participants will be compared. Individuals at high risk for lung cancer will be assigned to one of three sputum collection cohorts including (1) acapella® airway assist device under medical supervision to obtain a single sputum sample; (2) acapella® airway assist device to obtain a sputum sample over a three-day period, and (3) individuals who under medical supervision will collect a single sputum sample assisted by nebulization of between 0.9% to 10% hypertonic saline. Samples will be compared to determine the optimal collection method for sample analysis by CyPath® Lung.
