More than three quarter of patients with breast cancer are treated by hormone pills called tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors (AIs). AIs are drugs that stop female hormone production. This hormone production mostly happens in fat, muscle, and breast tissue in postmenopausal women. The female hormone estrogen is an important hormone for the growth of breast cancer cells. Anastrozole (Arimidex®) and Letrozole (Femara®) are AIs that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). They have been used since 2005 to treat women with early stage breast cancer. When given before surgery (neoadjuvant), both anastrozole and letrozole have been shown to successfully shrink breast cancer tumors in most patients. In over 50% of patients, anastrozole and letrozole when given for about 4 months also helped to improve surgery outcomes. On top of that, whether or not a patient responds to anastrozole and letrozole before surgery can help the doctor decide whether that patient needs additional chemotherapy. One of the things may influence the level of hormone is body weight. It has been previously shown that postmenopausal women with higher body fat have higher level of female hormone as well as an increased risk of breast cancer. This is likely due to an increase in aromatase activity in the fatty tissue. However, at the current time AIs are used at the same doses in all women with breast cancer no matter whether they have different body weight. Currently, we do not know for certain whether the same doses of AIs work as well in patients with higher body fat compared to patients with less body fat. The purpose of this study is to see if women with higher body fat respond differently to AI treatment compared to women with lower body fat.

Neuroimaging studies suggest that aberrant activities at specific brain regions such as sensory areas and language-related areas are related to psychosis symptoms including auditory and visual hallucination, delusion, and thought disorders. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) provides a non-invasive means for altering brain electrical neural activity. TMS has been approved by FDA for treatment of depression. Other applications have not been approved but it has been used in a wide range of clinical research especially in neurology and psychiatry. Among psychotic symptoms, there are preliminary significant improvement in treatments of auditory hallucination using TMS with small samples, but those treatments are not robust in larger samples. The high inter-subject variability limits the efficacy of TMS treatment in schizophrenia patients. We aim to develop a TMS treatment method with a fMRI-defined treatment target area, where the TMS target is individually identified to maximize the TMS effects. The identification method uses both the anatomical character and its functional relationship with auditory hallucination and other psychosis symptoms. If the current target-identification successfully identified effective TMS target individually, the treatment efficacy will be significant improved and more patients will benefit from TMS treatment.

Difficulties with communication for patients requiring mechanical ventilation is known to be a source of distress in the acute care setting. The inability to speak has been associated with increased psychological distress and increased feelings of fear and anger and impact negatively on patient participation with caregivers and their overall recovery. Developing and maintaining communication between patients and hospital staff reduces patient stress and increases patient satisfaction and part of the standard pf care. According to the new and revised The Joint Commission standards, hospitals must identify and document patients' communication needs and communicate with patients during their care in a manner that meets those needs. Using the Dolores One device for patients can improve the ease and efficiency of communication while they are in the acute care setting. For non-speaking patients, nonverbal communication means are often used, including mouthing words and head nods to indicate yes/no responses. However, relying completely on nonverbal means can limit patient responses and lead to ineffective and frustrating communication exchanges. There have been several studies reviewing the negative effects of the inability to speak for intubated, mechanically ventilated patients. However, there is a need for more research to address communication difficulties in other mechanically ventilated populations, including patients receiving non-invasive ventilation and ventilator dependent tracheostomy patients. The Dolores One is comprised of an acoustic throat sensor and positioned at the patient's neck with a soft adjustable collar. The sensor gathers vocal cord vibrations and transmits signals to a control unit, processes the sensor signal, and finally, generates the patient's voice. The smart signal processing automatically accommodates both weak forced voices and whispers, producing a voice output to allow for normal conversation in a patient's natural voice, free from the sounds of rushing air or equipment noises secondary to Non-Invasive Mechanical Ventilation (NIMV) systems. The purpose of the study is to determine if the Dolores One devices can be used in the clinical acute care setting with patients in NIMV to improve their ability to communication as measured as ease to communicate and intelligibility, with family and the members of the medical team.
