The International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation Registry data shows that there is a growing population of critically ill patients with advanced lung disease undergoing lung transplantation. The goal of our study is to evaluate the role of intensive physical therapy for patients with advanced lung disease requiring transplant or ECMO(extracorporeal membrane oxygenation)- bridge to transplant with emphasis on the restoration of functional independence and prevention of functional declines after lung transplantation. The project is a designed as a randomized prospective research study investigating the impact of a multi-modal rehabilitation program(MRP), which incorporates neuromuscular electric stimulation(NMES), strength and mobility training, and nutritional supplementation(NS) in ameliorating the loss of muscle mass and strength, and lower extremity balance, strength and coordination that will decrease time on the ventilator or ECMO, stay in the ICU and hospital.

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.

Epinephrine is the principal physiologic defense against hypoglycemia in type 1 and longer duration type 2 DM. Despite this, it is unknown how epinephrine regulates in-vivo endothelial function and atherothrombotic balance in humans. The specific aim of our study will be to determine the dose response effects of the key ANS counterregulatory hormone epinephrine on endothelial function, fibrinolytic balance and pro-atherogenic inflammatory mechanisms in healthy humans.

(1) To determine how the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI), fluoxetine (Prozac), an antidepressant often used to treat depression, stimulates the participant's body's ability to defend against low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). (2) To learn how a hormone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), stimulates the participant's body's ability to defend itself from low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). DHEA is a hormone produced naturally in the human body. However, it can be manufactured and is sold as an over-the-counter dietary supplement. The dose the investigators are giving in this study is higher than the usual recommended dosage taken as a supplement for certain medical conditions. (3) To study combined effects of fluoxetine and DHEA during low blood glucose. In the present study, the investigators will measure the participant's body's responses to hypoglycemia when given fluoxetine or DHEA or fluoxetine and DHEA or a placebo (a pill with no fluoxetine or DHEA). Approximately 64 individuals with type 1 diabetes will take part in this study.

Clinical guidelines (AASLD) recommend the use of abdominal ultrasound (US) for surveillance testing for the early detection of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC). The serum protein biomarker alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) is commonly used to augment US but its use alone is not recommended by clinical guidelines. Despite evidence that HCC surveillance improves early detection and reduces mortality from HCC, current HCC surveillance tests lack sensitivity, leaving a significant proportion of patients to present with late-stage disease. The Glycotest HCC Panel has shown better sensitivity than AFP, which is ineffective for the detection of early-stage HCC. This clinical study seeks to validate the Glycotest HCC Panel using a large multicenter cohort of cases and controls that includes patients diagnosed with early-stage HCC against a background of cirrhosis and cirrhotic patients without HCC (at risk) undergoing an established surveillance protocol.

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. The investigator will measure the clinical assessment scores, and neuromechanical properties including range of motion, active and passive cross coupling, and spasticity by the IntelliArm robot.

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.

We aim to determine whether cognitive impairment attributable to cerebral hemodynamic impairment in patients with high-grade asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis is reversible with restoration of flow. To accomplish this aim CREST-H will add on to the NINDS-sponsored CREST-2 trial (parallel, outcome-blinded Phase 3 clinical trials for patients with asymptomatic high-grade carotid artery stenosis which will compare carotid endarterectomy plus intensive medical management (IMM) versus IMM alone (n=1,240), and carotid artery stenting plus IMM versus IMM alone (n=1,240) to prevent stroke and death). CREST-H addresses the intriguing question of whether cognitive impairment can be reversed when it arises from abnormal cerebral hemodynamic perfusion in a hemodynamically impaired subset of the CREST-2 -randomized patients. We will enroll 500 patients from CREST-2, all of whom receive cognitive assessments at baseline and yearly thereafter. We anticipate identifying 100 patients with hemodynamic impairment as measured by an inter-hemispheral MRI perfusion "time to peak" (TTP) delay on the side of stenosis. Among those who are found to be hemodynamically impaired and have baseline cognitive impairment, the cognitive batteries at baseline and at 1 year will determine if those with flow failure who are randomized to a revascularization arm in CREST-2 will have better cognitive outcomes than those in the medical-only arm compared with this treatment difference for those who have no flow failure. We hypothesize that hemodynamically significant "asymptomatic" carotid disease may represent one of the few examples of treatable causes of cognitive impairment. If cognitive decline can be reversed in these patients, then we will have established a new indication for carotid revascularization independent of the risk of recurrent stroke.
