Compression garments have been shown to be effective in the treatment of orthostatic hypotension in autonomic failure patients. The purpose of this study is to determine the hemodynamic mechanisms by which abdominal compression (up to 40 mm Hg) improve the standing blood pressure and orthostatic tolerance in these patients, and to compare them with those of the standard of care midodrine. The investigators will test the hypothesis that abdominal compression will blunt the exaggerated fall in stroke volume and the increase in abdominal vascular volume during head up tilt.

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 brentuximab vedotin and combination chemotherapy to see how well they work compared to combination chemotherapy alone in treating children and young adults with stage IIB or stage IIIB-IVB Hodgkin lymphoma. Combinations of biological substances in brentuximab vedotin may be able to carry cancer-killing substances directly to Hodgkin lymphoma cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, bleomycin sulfate, vincristine sulfate, etoposide, prednisone, and cyclophosphamide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known if combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without brentuximab vedotin in treating Hodgkin lymphoma.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well crizotinib works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been removed by surgery and has a mutation in a protein called anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Mutations, or changes, in ALK can make it very active and important for tumor cell growth and progression. Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the ALK protein from working. Crizotinib may be an effective treatment for patients with non-small cell lung cancer and an ALK fusion mutation.

The purpose of this investigation is to delineate the incidence of acute and chronic laryngeal injury following intubation within our health system. In addition, this study seeks to identify risk factors for airway injury that may provide information to help reduce the incidence of injury or increase the speed of diagnosis through hospital based process measures. Study Aims 1. Determine the incidence of acute laryngeal injury in patients with prolonged intubation. 2. Determine the incidence of chronic laryngeal injury in the subset of patients with acute laryngeal injury 3. Initiate a randomized control trial to investigate the ability of azithromycin and budesonide to improve objective and subjective breathing measures in patients with Acute Laryngeal injury (ALgI) following endotracheal intubation.

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the regulation of the veins of the abdomen by the autonomic (involuntary) nervous system, and how this may affect high blood pressure. Normally, the autonomic nervous system controls how much blood flows in the veins. In people with high blood pressure, however, the autonomic nervous system is changed. This change may affect the way blood flows in the veins of the abdomen which may play a role in their high blood pressure. About 32 participants will be screened for the study. The investigators estimate 16 will be eligible to participate in all of the study days.
