The primary objective of Cohort 1 of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and antiviral activity (HBV DNA < 20 IU/mL) of tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) 25 mg once daily versus placebo through Week 24 in treatment-naive and treatment-experienced adolescents (aged 12 to < 18 years) with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). Cohort 2 will consist of 2 parts: Part A and Part B. Intensive pharmacokinetic (PK) data will be collected from all participants in Part A to confirm the dose of TAF in each dose group and the remaining participants will be enrolled into Part B once dose confirmation is achieved. The primary objectives of Part A are to evaluate the steady-state PK of TAF and tenofovir (TFV) and confirm the dose of TAF given once daily in children (aged 2 to < 12 years) with CHB. The primary objective of Part B is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of TAF at Week 48 and the antiviral activity (HBV DNA < 20 IU/mL) of TAF at Week 24 in children (aged 2 to < 12 years) with CHB.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well standard-dose combination chemotherapy works compared to high-dose combination chemotherapy and stem cell transplant in treating patients with germ cell tumors that have returned after a period of improvement or did not respond to treatment. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, ifosfamide, cisplatin, carboplatin, and etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving chemotherapy before a stem cell transplant stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. Giving colony-stimulating factors, such as filgrastim or pegfilgrastim, and certain chemotherapy drugs, helps stem cells move from the bone marrow to the blood so they can be collected and stored. Chemotherapy is then given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. It is not yet known whether high-dose combination chemotherapy and stem cell transplant are more effective than standard-dose combination chemotherapy in treating patients with refractory or relapsed germ cell tumors.

Salt-sensitive hypertension affects nearly 50% of the hypertensive and 25% of the normotensive population, and strong evidence indicates that reducing salt intake decreases blood pressure and cardiovascular events. The precise mechanisms of how dietary salt contributes to blood pressure elevation, renal injury, and cardiovascular disease remains unclear. Our data indicated that monocytes exhibit salt sensitivity, and the investigators hypothesize that of salt sensitivity of these and similar immune cells correlate with the hypertensive response to salt intake. Currently, the research tools for diagnosing salt-sensitivity are costly, time consuming and laborious. In this study the investigators will identify monocyte salt-sensitivity as a marker of salt-sensitive hypertension.
