Logitudinal Study of Patients With Opioid-Induced Constipation
The main objective of the study is to calculate the rate of inadequate response to laxatives in a cohort of patients with OIC, as well as to gain a detailed understanding of the burden of illness of OIC by documenting the characteristics of patients [more...]  seeking usual care in the laxative-inadequate responders (LIR) and the laxative-adequate responders (LAR) opioid user subgroups. The study will do so by evaluating the burden of illness impact of OIC on each of the opioid user patient sub-groups of interest in terms of clinical outcomes (including symptoms), resource utilization (laxative use, OIC-related MD visits, hospitalizations, and ER visits), economic burden, and HRQL. This study also aims to identify "predictors" of outcomes of interest and will evaluate physician and patient perceptions of the severity and burden of OIC.

Differentiating the Effects of Substance P and Beta-endorphin
In previous studies we demonstrated that endogenous opioids (inhibitory neuropeptides) modulate the perception of breathing difficulty in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (ERJ 2009;33:771; J COPD 2011;8:160). Recently, we found that antagonism of substance P (an [more...]  excitatory neuropeptide) with aprepitant did not affect the perception of breathing difficulty. However, after administration of aprepitant, blood levels of both substance P(+ 54 ± 39%) and beta-endorphin (+ 27 ± 17%) increased significantly. As these blood levels reflect cellular/tissue activity, we postulated that the concomitant release of excitatory (substance P) and inhibitory (beta-endorphin) neuropeptides had opposing effects (counterbalanced each other) on the perception of breathing difficulty. The objective of the present study is to further examine the possible role of substance P on the perception of breathlessness. We propose to administer oral aprepitant and oral placebo in a randomized clinical trial in patients with COPD. However, four hours after patients take these medications, intravenous naloxone will be administered in order to block the effects of endogenous opioids (beta-endorphin) on opioid receptors. Five minutes later, patients will breathe thru a tube with fine wire mesh to provoke breathing difficulty, and then provide ratings of the intensity and unpleasantness of breathlessness every minute. The two competing hypothesis of the study are: 1. if breathlessness ratings with aprepitant/naloxone = placebo/naloxone, then substance P has no effect on perception of breathing difficulty; 2. if breathlessness ratings with aprepitant/naloxone ≠ placebo/naloxone, then substance P has an effect on perception of breathing difficulty.

A Proof-of-principle Study of Hyperbaric Oxygen as a Radiosensitizer Prior to Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Brain Metastases
Patients with brain metastases who are candidates for treatment with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) are potential study participants. SRS delivers high-energy, precisely-focused radiation to each brain metastasis to shrink the tumor, and is the standard-of-care for patients with these tumors. [more...]  Oxygen enhances the damaging effects of radiation on tumor cells. Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy increases oxygen levels in all kinds of tissues, including tumors. The purpose of this trial is to study whether it is feasible to treat patients with HBO just prior to receiving SRS, given the timing constraints of treating sequentially with HBO and then SRS. Patients will undergo HBO treatment followed by the placement of a Gill-Thomas-Cosman head frame then transported ,via stretcher, to receive SRS. The transfer and placement of the head frame needs to be completed within the 15minute time frame. The trial's secondary objectives are to determine whether it has any effects on outcomes and quality of life. As part of study participation patients will be asked to complete quality of life questionnaires as well as mini mental status questionnaires. These will be done prior to treatment and at follow up appointments throughout the next 3 years while participating in the study. Patients will be given the option to participate in the optional bio marker blood draw study which would require patients to have blood drawn at three time points, pre-treatment, the day after treatment and at their first follow up visit.

Evaluating the Expression Levels of MicroRNA-10b in Patients With Gliomas
MicroRNAs (miRNA) are molecular biomarkers that post-transcriptionally control target genes. Deregulated miRNA expression has been observed in diverse cancers. In high grade gliomas, known as glioblastomas, the investigators have identified an oncogenic miRNA, miRNA-10b (mir-10b) that is expressed [more...]  at higher levels in glioblastomas than in normal brain tissue. This study tests the hypothesis that in primary glioma samples mir-10b expression patterns will serve as a prognostic and diagnostic marker. This study will also characterize the phenotypic and genotypic diversity of glioma subclasses. Furthermore, considering the critical function of anti-mir-10b in blocking established glioblastoma growth, the investigators will test in vitro the sensitivity of individual primary tumors to anti-mir-10b treatment. Tumor, blood and cerebrospinal fluid samples will be obtained from patients diagnosed with gliomas over a period of two years. These samples will be examined for mir-10b expression levels. Patient survival, as well as tumor grade and genotypic variations will be correlated to mir-10b expression levels.

T-DM1 vs Paclitaxel/Trastuzumab for Breast (ATEMPT Trial)
This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific cancer. "Investigational" means that the drug is still being studied and that [more...]  research doctors are trying to find out more about it-such as the safest dose to use, the side effects it may cause, and if the drug is effective for treating different types of cancer. It also means that the FDA has not approved this drug for use patients undergoing adjuvant treatment for HER2+ breast cancer. Trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) is a drug that may stop cancer cells from growing. This drug has been used in other research studies and information from those other research studies suggests that this drug may help to prevent the recurrence of breast cancer in this research study. The use of T-DM1 in this research study is experimental, which means it is not approved by any regulatory authority for the adjuvant treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer. However, it FDA-approved for metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer. T-DM1 has caused cancer cells to die in laboratory studies. In preclinical studies, this drug has prevented or slowed the growth of breast cancer. The breast cancer treatments (paclitaxel and Trastuzumab) used in this study are considered part of standard-of-care regimens in early breast cancer. A standard treatment means that this is a treatment that would be accepted by the majority of the medical community as a suitable treatment for your type of breast cancer. In this research study, the investigators are looking to see if the study drug T-DM1 will have less side effects than traditional HER2-positive breast cancer treatment of trastuzumab and paclitaxel. The investigators are also hoping to learn about the long term benefits and disease-free survival of participants who take the study drug T-DM1 in comparison to those participants to take the combination of trastuzumab and paclitaxel.

Monitoring of Neoadjuvant Therapy in Locally-Advanced Breast Cancer
The purpose of this study is to determine whether four new alternative imaging methods can be used to follow the response of breast cancer to the treatment patients are being given. These methods produce an image of the inside of the breast so that [more...]  doctors can better decide whether breast cancer is responding to therapy. An important part of the study is to examine the same person with all methods in order to directly compare results. The four methods are: MRI Elasticity Imaging (abbreviated MRE), Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (abbreviated EIS), Microwave Imaging and Spectroscopy (abbreviated MIS), Near Infrared Spectroscopy (abbreviated NIR). In addition to the experimental imaging methods, patients may also undergo a contrast-enhanced MRI, and/or additional mammography, which will help researchers compare the experimental methods. These additional examinations are accepted diagnostic procedures; they are not experimental. Some participants will have one or both of these additional examinations if clinically indicated.
