This a prospective, longitudinal study of first-degree family members of patients diagnosed with familial interstitial pneumonia (FIP). FIP is the familial form of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), which is defined as 2 or more bloodline relatives which have a diagnosis of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP). The most common form of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia in FIP families is IPF (approximately 70%). The inheritance pattern in FIP is consistent with autosomal dominant inheritance with incomplete penetrance. Therefore, individuals in this study have approximately 50% risk of carrying a disease-associated allele. The causative gene is currently only known approximately 20% of families. The main goal of this longitudinal study is to better establish the natural history of FIP and to identify risk factors for later development of symptomatic disease. The investigators' plan is to follow these at-risk individuals with yearly questionnaires and planned in person 5 year follow-ups through age 70 or until they develop symptomatic FIP.

Approximately 20-30% of patients presenting with acute heart failure are discharged from the ED. Compared to patients discharged from the hospital, they more frequently return to the ED and hospital for further management. While inpatient discharges are often enrolled in transitions programs and have their care tailored to evidence-based recommendations, ED discharges do not. The investigators propose to evaluate current standard ED discharge to an ED-based intervention which will transition patients to outpatient follow-up on guideline-recommended therapy.

The key purpose of the main part of the study is to assess efficacy and safety of anetumab ravtansine as monotherapy or combination therapy for mesothelin expressing advanced solid tumors. The main purpose of the safety lead-in (dose-finding) part of the study is to determine the safety and tolerability of anetumab ravtansine in combination with cisplatin and in combination with gemcitabine, and to determine the MTD of anetumab ravtansine in combination with cisplatin for mesothelin expressing advanced cholangiocarcinoma and in combination with gemcitabine for mesothelin expressing advanced adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. Patients will receive anetumab ravtansine every three weeks in monotherapy for most indications. In cholangiocarinoma and adenocarinoma of the pancreas, 3-weekly anetumab ravtansine is administered in combination with cisplatin or gemcitabine respectively (both administered in a 2 week on / 1 week off schedule). Treatment will continue until disease progression or until another criterion for withdrawal is met. .Efficacy will be measured by evaluating the tumor's objective response rate. Radiological tumor assessments will be performed at defined time points until the patient's disease progresses. Blood samples will be collected for safety, pharmacokinetic and biomarker analysis. Archival or fresh biopsy tissue will also be collected for mesothelin expression testing and biomarker analyses.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well initial treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab followed by dabrafenib and trametinib works and compares it to initial treatment with dabrafenib and trametinib followed by ipilimumab and nivolumab in treating patients with stage III-IV melanoma that contains a mutation known as BRAFV600 and cannot be removed by surgery. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as ipilimumab and nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Dabrafenib and trametinib may block tumor growth by targeting the BRAFV600 gene. It is not yet known whether treating patients with ipilimumab and nivolumab followed by dabrafenib and trametinib is more effective than treatment with dabrafenib and trametinib followed by ipilimumab and nivolumab.

This research study tests an investigational drug called DS-3201b. An investigational drug is a medication that is still being studied and has not yet been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA allows DS-3201b to be used only in research. It is not known if DS-3201b will work or not. This study consists of two parts. The first part (Part 1) is a dose escalation that will enroll subjects with AML or ALL that did not respond or no longer respond to previous standard therapy. The purpose of Part 1 of this research study is to determine the highest dose a patient can tolerate or recommended dose of DS-3201b that can be given to subjects with AML or ALL. Once the highest tolerable dose is determined, additional subjects will be enrolled at that dose into Part 2 of the study.
