Communication and Coping for Mothers of Adolescents With Type 1 Diabetes

Mothers of adolescents with type 1 diabetes experience high levels of depressive symptoms, which impair their ability to monitor and manage diabetes treatment effectively. Further, maternal depressive symptoms are one of the strongest predictors of negative outcomes in adolescents, including deteriorating glycemic control, problems with adherence, poorer quality of life, and greater risk for depression. Given that adolescents are a high-risk population for suboptimal glycemic control - with only 17% meeting treatment goals - there is a critical need for novel interventions to improve outcomes in adolescents with T1D. Yet, previous behavioral interventions for youth with diabetes have had only modest effects on glycemic control, and none have directly targeted maternal depressive symptoms. Building on effective interventions to treat depression in adults, and our own pilot work in this population, the proposed study will use a rigorous approach to evaluate the efficacy of a cognitive-behavioral intervention for mothers of adolescents with type 1 diabetes to promote the use of adaptive coping strategies and positive parenting practices. The aims of this study are to: 1) evaluate the effects of the Communication & Coping intervention on diabetes-related outcomes; 2) evaluate the effects of the Communication & Coping intervention on psychosocial outcomes; and 3) explore the differential impact of the intervention across demographic factors. Mothers who are randomized to the Communication & Coping Intervention will receive individual cognitive-behavioral therapy sessions by phone, as well as access to a Facebook group to augment the material covered in calls and provide social support. Mothers randomized to the Attention Control condition will receive educational materials and phone check-ins, as well as a Facebook group with educational posts. Adolescents and their mothers will be assessed at baseline and again post-intervention, at 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months.

This study will assess patients who have recurrent urinary tract infections and kidney stones which are not blocking the kidney or causing other problems. Currently, we don't know if taking out these stones will improve recurrent urinary tract infections or not. Patients will make a decision with their surgeon about removing or monitoring their stone(s). Whether or not their infections continue with surgery or monitoring will be noted, and this information may help to inform future treatment decisions. The purpose of this study is to assess if treatment of these asymptomatic stones affects the rate of recurrent urinary tract infections.

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) patients remain at risk for pump thrombus and thromboembolic events through multiple mechanisms. The HeartWare® Ventricular Assist System (HVAD®, HeartWare Inc., Framingham, MA, USA) includes a novel speed modulation feature called Lavare™ cycle. The Lavare™ Cycle is aimed to promote washing of left ventricle to decrease blood stasis and subsequent risk of thrombus formation, ingestion and/or expulsion. No prior study has prospectively evaluated the impact of Lavare™ cycle on patient outcomes in a randomized fashion. We intend to assess effects of Lavare™ Cycle among patients receiving HVAD LVAD in this randomized controlled pilot project.

Malignant pleural effusion remains a debilitating complication of end stage cancer, which can be greatly improved by the introduction of the indwelling tunneled pleural catheter (IPC). However, there is no standard of care regarding drainage and limited data on the utility of different drainage techniques. In addition, many patients develop discomfort and chest pain during drainage. The investigators propose to evaluate gravity drainage and suction drainage on quality of life measures and outcomes.

This phase II trial studies the how well berzosertib and irinotecan work in treating patients with gastric or gastroesophageal junction cancer that is growing, spreading or getting worse (progressive), has spread to other places in the body (metastatic), or cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Berzosertib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for growth. Chemotherapy drugs, such as irinotecan, 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 berzosertib and irinotecan may work better than irinotecan alone in treating patients with gastric and gastroesophageal junction cancer.

The purpose of this study is to compare FFR measurements done with adenosine to FFR measurements done with contrast, where the contrast is injected using the ACIST CVi automated contrast injector. The ACCELERATION study will support a safer approach to FFR for patients by potentially reducing toxic drug exposure (adenosine). The 2 main objectives of the study are: 1. Perform a methods comparison between cFFR and the reference standard aFFR, where cFFR is performed using an automated injector with a standardized volume and rate of delivery of contrast with known osmolality. 2. Evaluate the association between final post-PCI FFR and long-term clinical outcomes. The long-term clinical outcomes will include TVR and composite MACE (death, MI, and TVR) at 30 days and 1 year.

Impulsive and compulsive behaviors occur in up to 46% of Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients taking dopamine agonist (DAA) medications. While these abnormal social behaviors have been studied in other neurodegenerative disorders, the true incidence of social problems, and the relationship to dopamine therapy, in PD patients remains unknown. This study is aiming to determine if dopamine agonists alter social decision-making and to determine if impaired social decision-making relates to dopamine-induced mesolimbic network dysfunction in PD patients. The protocol will include a screening visit, and on-DAA visit, and an off-DAA visit. For both the on and off DAA visits, participants will continue taking Carbidopa-Levodopa, but will withdrawal off of other PD related medications. Both visits will include an MRI, fMRI shock task, questionnaires to be filled out by other the participant and the caregiver, moral-decision making computer tasks, and the Unified Parkinsons Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) part II and III. For the on-DAA visit, participants will take Pramipexole. For the off-DAA visit, participants will receive a placebo. Participants will remind blinded to which medication they are receiving that day and will be counterbalanced such that all participants will not take the Pramipexole or placebo on the same days.
