The investigators' overarching goal is to improve long-term outcomes for end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. In this study we focus specifically on patients receiving peritoneal dialysis (PD). Volume regulation in PD patients is related to hypertension, heart failure, nutritional status, and survival. Salt (NaCl) is the body's ion transport target to normally regulate volume via the kidneys; however, in hemodialysis (HD) patients the dialyser or in PD patients the peritoneal membrane, must serve that purpose. Determining volume status in PD patients is not easy and monitoring sodium (Na+) is more difficult still. The investigators have developed a novel, noninvasive approach to this problem involving 23Na+ magnetic resonance imaging (Na-MRI). Na+ is stored bound to proteoglycans in mostly the skin. Our technique measures Na+ in skin and skeletal muscle. In this study, we propose to apply this novel technique to PD patients. Aim 1. To determine Na+ stores in PD patients, to compare Na+ stores to normal controls using Na-MRI technique, and to correlate Na+ stores by Na-MRI with multifrequency bioimpedance measurements and cross-sectional clinical data. Hypothesis: Na+ stores are increased in PD patients compared to normal controls; they are increased in PD patients with volume expansion and in those patients with high soluble vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-3 (sFlt-4) levels. Aim 2. To determine the utility of Na-MRI as an assessment of preserving residual renal function in PD patients. Hypothesis: Extracellular volume expansion as measured by multifrequency bioimpedance was found to have no utility in predicting preservation of residual renal function in PD patients. The investigators hypothesize that Na+ stores as determined by 23Na-MRI will fulfill that function and will be inversely, rather than directly, related.

It is estimated that by 2016, nearly 50% of HIV-positive individuals in the US will be aged 50 or older, and up to 60% of those will experience some degree of cognitive impairment as they age. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the contribution of the neuronal cholinergic receptor system to the cognitive impairments seen in adults aging with chronic HIV Infection. By using anti-cholinergic challenge drugs to reversibly "stress" cognitive functioning, the investigators hope to understand whether the presence of the HIV virus in the brain impairs the neural system necessary for normal cognition, more than would be expected from normal cognitive aging.

This phase III trial studies response-based chemotherapy in treating newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome in younger patients with Down syndrome. Drugs used in chemotherapy 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. Response-based chemotherapy separates patients into different risk groups and treats them according to how they respond to the first course of treatment (Induction I). Response-based treatment may be effective in treating acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome in younger patients with Down syndrome while reducing the side effects.

This randomized phase II trial studies how well cisplatin and gemcitabine hydrochloride with or without ATR kinase inhibitor M6620 works in treating patients with urothelial cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and gemcitabine hydrochloride, 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. ATR kinase inhibitor M6620 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known if cisplatin and gemcitabine hydrochloride work better alone or with ATR kinase inhibitor M6620 in treating patients with urothelial cancer.

This randomized phase III trial studies whether weight loss in overweight and obese women may prevent breast cancer from coming back (recurrence). Previous studies have found that women who are overweight or obese when their breast cancer is found (diagnosed) have a greater risk of their breast cancer recurring, as compared to women who were thinner when their cancer was diagnosed. This study aims to test whether overweight or obese women who take part in a weight loss program after being diagnosed with breast cancer have a lower rate of cancer recurrence as compared to women who do not take part in the weight loss program. This study will help to show whether weight loss programs should be a part of breast cancer treatment.
