This is an open-label, non-randomized study. The purpose of this study is to better understand how vaccines against typhoid fever affect the normal immune system and bacteria in the intestine. Patients having standard-of-care colonoscopies will be divided into 3 groups: Group 1: Vivotif typhoid vaccination then colonoscopy; Group 2: Colonoscopy, then Vivotif typhoid vaccination, then follow-up colonoscopy; Group 3: Colonoscopy without vaccination. The Vivotif typhoid vaccine used in this study is licensed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for travelers to developing countries. Volunteers will be asked to donate tissue, blood, saliva and stool samples for studying how the body responds to the typhoid vaccine.

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a serious condition that occurs as a complication of medical and surgical diseases, has a mortality of ~40%, and has no known treatment other than optimization of support. Data from basic research, animal models, and retrospective studies, case series, and small prospective studies suggest that therapeutic hypothermia (TH) similar to that used for cardiac arrest may be lung protective in patients with ARDS; however, shivering and its metabolic impact is a major complication of TH, often requiring neuromuscular blockade (NMB) to control. Since the recently completed NHLBI PETAL ROSE trial showed that NMB caused conferred neither benefit nor harm in patients with moderate to severe ARDS, the investigators seek to bundle TH with NMB to reduce shivering. The investigators have completed an open label pilot study of TH+NMB in 8 ARDS patients that showed feasibility of the approach and improved clinical outcomes compared with historical controls who just received NMB. To test and refine protocols for recruitment and treatment prior to a large multisite Phase IIb RCT, the investigators are performing a small pilot single center RCT of TH (core temperature 34-35°C) + NMB for 48h vs. standard of care in patients with ARDS and P/F < 200. Primary outcome will be 28 day ventilator-free days and secondary outcomes will include physiologic measures, mortality, hospital and ICU length of stay, and serum biomarkers collected on days 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 7.

This is a Phase III, prospective, multicenter study with two study parts (epochs) to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of HYQVIA/HyQvia (IGI, 10% with recombinant human hyaluronidase (rHuPH20) administered subcutaneously) for maintenance therapy to prevent relapse (Epoch 1) and GAMMAGARD LIQUID/KIOVIG (immunoglobulin G intravenous (IGIV) 10% administered intravenously) for the treatment of CIDP (Epoch 2). This study will enroll adult subjects with a confirmed diagnosis of CIDP and who have remained on a stable dosing regimen (monthly equivalent dose of 0.4 to 2.4 g/kg body weight (BW) with a dosing interval of 2 to 6 weeks) of IGIV therapy for at least 3 months prior to screening. In this double-blind, placebo-controlled phase of the study (Epoch 1), eligible subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive either HYQVIA/HyQvia or 0.25% albumin placebo solution with rHuPH20 every two, three, or four weeks in a double-blind fashion for a period of 6 months or until relapse. Subjects who relapse during Epoch 1 will enter Epoch 2 to receive IGIV treatment for a period of 6 months.

The purpose of this research study is to compare two different ways to give opioid pain medicine to treat sickle cell disease pain that is bad enough to go to the emergency department for treatment. One way uses your weight to decide how much pain medicine to give you while in the emergency department. This is called weight based treatment. The other way uses how much pain medicine you take at home and how much medicine you needed during past emergency department visits to decide how much medicine to give you. This is called patient specific treatment.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of ProstAtak® immunotherapy in combination with radiation therapy for patients with intermediate-high risk localized prostate cancer. ProstAtak kills tumor cells and stimulates a cancer vaccine effect. Killing tumor cells in an immune stimulatory environment induces the body's immune system to detect and destroy cancer cells. ProstAtak has shown synergy with radiation without added toxicity and lower than expected recurrence rates in previous clinical trials. The hypothesis is that ProstAtak can lead to improvement in the clinical outcome for patients with prostate cancer. Participants will be randomized to the ProstAtak or control arm at a 2:1 ratio. Both arms receive standard external beam radiation therapy. Short-term androgen deprivation therapy may be given but is not required.

The PHA Registry (PHAR) is a national study about people who have pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). PHAR collects information from people with PAH and CTEPH who are cared for in participating PHA-accredited Pulmonary Hypertension Care Centers throughout the U.S. PHAR will determine how people with PAH and CTEPH are evaluated, tested, and treated, and will observe how well these participants do. The goal is to see if people with PH are treated according to recommended guidelines, and to see if there are certain factors that can lead to better or worse outcomes. PHAR will include information about people with PAH and CTEPH in the U.S. who are seen at participating PHA-accredited PH Care Centers. PHAR contains data about patient care and outcomes. Specifically, data in the PHAR includes information on diagnosis; clinical status; socioeconomic status; diagnosis test results; body size; treatment information; interest in participating in clinical trials; family health and social history; and information about smoking, alcohol, or drug use. Participants are followed over time, and provide updates such as changes in therapy, how often participants need to go to the hospital, and survival. Such information may help healthcare providers provide better care.

FDA-approved multiple sclerosis (MS) disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) target the relapsing phase of MS but have minimal impact once the progressive phase has begun. It is unclear if, in the relapsing phase, there is an advantage of early aggressive therapy with respect to preventing long-term disability. The infectious risks and other complications associated with higher-efficacy treatments highlight the need to quantify their effectiveness in preventing disability. The TRaditional versus Early Aggressive Therapy for MS (TREAT-MS) trial is a pragmatic, randomized controlled trial that has two primary aims: 1) to evaluate, jointly and independently among patients deemed at higher risk vs. lower risk for disability accumulation, whether an "early aggressive" therapy approach, versus starting with a traditional, first-line therapy, influences the intermediate-term risk of disability, and 2) to evaluate if, among patients deemed at lower risk for disability who start on first-line MS therapies but experience breakthrough disease, those who switch to a higher-efficacy versus a new first-line therapy have different intermediate-term risk of disability.

Sensory and motor impairments following stroke can lead to substantial disability involving the arm and hand. The investigator hypothesized that excessive local and cross-coupled stiffness, diminished individuation and proprioceptive acuity will be present among multiple degree of freedom in the upper limb. The stiffness and spasticity will increase with time post-stroke. The objective of this study is to quantify the progression throughout the arm and hand during recovery from stroke.
