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.

In a double-blinded, randomized, parallel controlled design, patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorder will be exposed to active or sham repetitive transcranial magentic stimulation (TMS) which was guided by functional magnetic resonance image (MRI). Smoking reduction/cessation and brain functional connectivity changes will be assessed at baseline, different stages of rTMS and/or follow-ups.

Treatment of Chronic Antibody-mediated Rejection in Kidney Transplant With Acthar
University of Maryland, Baltimore Transplant Glomerulopathy

Strengthening Family Coping Resources Open Trials
University of Maryland, Baltimore Intervention Effectiveness Practice-based Evidence Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Strengthening Families Coping Resources (SFCR) Open Trials completes the second stage of the National Institute on Drug Abuse's intervention development model by testing a new family, skills-based intervention involving pre-post evaluation of families participating in multi-family groups. The purpose of this study is to gather practice-based evidence on the effectiveness of the manualized treatment, on the dynamics involved in the group format, and on implementation fidelity and feasibility. Analyses will involve initial exploration of the following hypotheses: 1) Families will show a significant increase in the constructive use of family coping skills and in general family functioning. 2) The target child will show a reduction in trauma-related symptoms and behavior problems. 3) Families will engage and participate in the treatment. 4) Providers will implement SFCR with fidelity. Other outcomes of interest are the process measures that will be collected to monitor participation in the groups, cultural sensitivity and acceptability, clinician competence, and intervention integrity.

Efficacy of a Transcranial Vibrating System for Minimizing Dizziness During Caloric Testing

Testing for vestibular dysfunction often induces dizziness and nausea, to the point that testing cannot be completed. The investigators will use a "transcranial vibration system" that has shown promise in improving comfort during testing for vestibular disorders. The investigators hypothesize that with this "transcranial vibration system", the dizziness and nausea associated with caloric testing will be significantly reduced, while the clinical measures derived from the test will not be statistically significantly altered.

Dietary supplementation with antioxidant vitamins, such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E, reduces malformation rates in embryos of diabetic animals. However, human trials exploring the benefits of these antioxidant vitamins have produced unsatisfactory results in trials designed to alleviating diabetic retinopathy, cardiovascular disease, and preeclampsia in pregnancies. The investigators hypothesize that more potent, and better-targeted antioxidants, such as N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids(PUFA), will be successful in preventing birth defects in the offspring of women with diabetes.
