Multiple studies have demonstrated oral suppressive antibiotic therapy (SAT), after intravenous antibiotics, maximizes reoperation-free survival of total joint arthroplasty (TJA) debridement, antibiotics, and implant retention (DAIR) for acute periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). However, little is known regarding sequelae of SAT after DAIR for PJI. Prior studies have small or heterogeneous patient cohorts, variable antibiotic regimens, arrive at disparate conclusions, and do not establish antibiotic resistance risk. The investigators propose a prospective randomized controlled multicenter study to expand on findings in a retrospective, multi-center pilot study. Study aims are to evaluate SAT after DAIR of acutely infected primary TJA regarding: 1) adverse drug reactions/intolerance; 2) reoperation for infection; and 3) antibiotic resistance.

Background: - Stem cell transplants from related donors (allogenic stem cell transplants) can be used to treat individuals with certain kinds of severe blood diseases or cancers, such as severe anemia. Allogenic stem cell transplants encourage the growth of new bone marrow to replace that of the recipient. Because stem cell transplants can have serious complications, researchers are interested in developing new approaches to stem cell transplants that will reduce the likelihood of these complications. - By reducing the number of white blood cells included in the blood taken during the stem cell collection process, and replacing them with a smaller amount of white blood cells collected prior to stem cell donation, the stem cell transplant may be less likely to cause severe complications for the recipient. Researchers are investigating whether altering the stem cell transplant donation procedure in this manner will improve the likelihood of a successful stem cell transplant with fewer complications. Objectives: - To evaluate a new method of stem cell transplantation that may reduce the possibly of severe side effects or transplant rejection in the recipient. Eligibility: - Recipient: Individuals between 4 and 80 years of age who have been diagnosed with a blood disease that can be treated with allogenic stem cell transplants. - Donor: Individuals between 4 and 80 years of age who are related to the recipient and are eligible to donate blood. OR unrelated donors found through the National Marrow Donor Program. Design: - All participants will be screened with a physical examination and medical history. - DONORS: - Donors will undergo an initial apheresis procedure to donate white blood cells. - After the initial donation, donors will receive injections of filgrastim to release bone marrow cells into the blood. - After 5 days of filgrastim injections, donors will have apheresis again to donate stem cells that are present in the blood. - RECIPIENTS: - Recipients will provide an initial donation of white blood cells to be used for research purposes only. - From 7 days before the stem cell transplant, participants will be admitted to the inpatient unit of the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center and will receive regular doses of cyclophosphamide, fludarabine, and anti-thymocyte globulin to suppress their immune system and prepare for the transplant. - After the initial chemotherapy, participants will receive the donated white blood cells and stem cells as a single infusion. - After the stem cell and white blood cell transplant, participants will have regular doses of cyclosporine and methotrexate to prevent rejection of the donor cells. Participants will have three doses of methotrexate within the week after the transplant, but will continue to take cyclosporine for up to 4 months after the transplant. - Participants will remain in inpatient care for up to 1 month after the transplant, and will be followed with regular visits for up to 3 years with periodic visits thereafter to evaluate the success of the transplant and any side effects.

This is a Phase III clinical randomized control trial to investigate differences between patient with an infected nonunion treated by PO vs. IV antibiotics. The study population will be 250 patients, 18 years or older, being treated for infected nonunion after internal fixation of a fracture with a segmental defect less than one centimeter. Patients will be randomly assigned to either the treatment (group 1) PO antibiotics for 6 weeks or the control group (group 2) IV antibiotics for 6 weeks. The primary hypothesis is that the effectiveness of oral antibiotic therapy is equivalent to traditional intravenous antibiotic therapy for the treatment of infected nonunion after fracture internal fixation, when such therapy is combined with appropriate surgical management. Clinical effectiveness will be measured as the primary outcome as the number of secondary re-admissions related to injury and secondary outcomes of treatment failure (re-infection, nonunion, antibiotic complications) within the first one year of follow-up, as defined by specified criteria and determined by a blinded data assessment panel. In addition, treatment compliance, the cost of treatment, the number of surgeries required, the type and incidence of complications, and the duration of hospitalization will be measured.

Frailty is one of the main reasons older adults lose independence. Frailty describes a reduced ability to withstand stress on the physiological scale, or a reduced physiological reserve. The theory is that entrainment of circadian rhythm via time-restricted eating will improve the body's ability to predict energy supply and demand, and therefore enable the body to allocate more resources to anabolic processes and promote resilience to cancer treatment, thereby preventing the progression of frailty. A total of 30 individuals over 55 years old undergoing ADT therapy for prostate cancer will be recruited. Participants will be randomized 1:1 to a 12-week TRE intervention or a time-unrestricted nutrition control intervention. At baseline and post-intervention, Fried's Frailty Index will be used to assess frailty, and a novel set of five physiological responsiveness measures will be used to assess physiological responsiveness-1) lying-to-standing blood pressure, 2) heart rate variability, 3) oral glucose tolerance test, 4) 24-hour circadian cortisol rhythm, and 5) usual vs. fast gait speed. These data will allow assessment of 1) the feasibility of TRE among patients with prostate cancer during ADT treatment with the ultimate goal of optimizing an intervention to prevent the progression of frailty, and 2) the effects of TRE vs. control on frailty and physiological responsiveness.

Most Veterans living with HIV are 50 years of age or older and can expect to live more than 20 years longer with HIV medication. However, despite this success, Veterans living with HIV are more likely to have age-related diseases and loss of fitness and muscle that place them at increased risk for disability. This is a major priority for the VHA, the largest provider of HIV care in the United States. The goal of this study is to test a circuit exercise program in Veterans living with HIV that is designed to slowdown the aging process. The exercise program will be widely available by Video Teleconferencing (VTEL) and does not require stationary exercise equipment, making it widely accessible. This research will help reach the goal for Veterans to preserve their quality of life and ability to function independently. Novel findings will strengthen strategies to maintain life-long fitness through a personalized exercise prescription.

To test the hypothesis that functionally navigated repetitive TMS stimulations to the prefrontal cortex (PFC) modulate aberrant cortical electrical activities at PFC circuitry. The TMS location of the PFC site will be individually localized by the symptom-related functional connectivity between PFC and symptom related areas (such as the auditory and language processing cortex). The investigators predict that such modulation will correct abnormal activities in patients with schizophrenia, reduce symptoms, especially auditory hallucination, and improve working memory/sustained attention performance.
