Study Objectives The objectives for this randomized trial are: 1. To determine the efficacy of daily low-dose atropine (0.01%) for slowing myopia progression over a two-year treatment period in children aged 5 to less than 13 years (Primary Outcome On-Treatment). 2. To determine the efficacy of atropine treatment on myopia progression 6 months following cessation of low-dose atropine treatment (Secondary Outcome Off-Treatment). Synopsis of Study Design The current study is designed as an efficacy study, making effort to maximize adherence to treatment group assignments. After a run-in phase during which all participants are treated with daily artificial tear eyedrops for 2-4 weeks (and glasses are updated if required) to assess their ability to adhere to daily eye drops, participants are randomly assigned to daily atropine or placebo for 24 months, followed by 6 months off treatment.

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.

Background: - Without an explanation for severe and sometimes life-threatening symptoms, patients and their families are left in a state of unknown. The NIH helped create a network of medical research centers, called the Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN), to provide care and answers for these individuals. Objectives: - To improve diagnosis and care for people with undiagnosed diseases. Eligibility: - People with undiagnosed diseases, and their relatives. Design: - Participants will travel to one of the UDN medical centers for a 5-day clinical and research visit. - As part of the visit, UDN healthcare providers may ask participants to have: - Clinically indicated tests and procedures performed including: - A physical exam - Blood and urine tests - A review of health and family history - X-rays and body scans - Surveys - Photographs of the face and body - A special diet to see if the body can handle the food without having a reaction, like vomiting - Video or voice recordings - Other tests and procedures to help reach a diagnosis - Research tests and procedures performed including: - A skin biopsy. For this, a small piece of skin will be taken. - Surveys - Other tests and procedures for research that may not be related to a diagnosis or treatment. - Most participants will be asked to give samples for genetic testing. - Participants may be contacted after their visit to discuss test results. They may also be contacted in the future for interviews and surveys. - Relatives of participants may be asked to give samples for genetic testing. They may be asked to have parts of their visit recorded and to have additional tests. They may also be contacted in the future for interviews and surveys. - Clinical and research information collected will be stored in a database. - Information and samples collected will be shared with others for research purposes.

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.

Mechanical ventilation of ICU patients universally involves titration of the fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2) to maintain arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2). Despite decades of ICU practice, however, the optimal SpO2 target remains unknown. Current guidelines offer divergent recommendations as to the optimal SpO2 target. Therefore, we propose a 2,250-patient cluster-randomized cluster-crossover trial comparing a lower SpO2 target (90%; range 88-92%), an intermediate SpO2 target (94%; range 92-96%), and a higher SpO2 target (98%; range 96-100%) with regard to the outcome of days alive and free of invasive mechanical ventilation.

This randomized phase II trial studies how well carboplatin with or without atezolizumab works in treating patients with stage IV triple negative breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, 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. Monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

This phase I/II trial studies the best dose and side effects of glutaminase inhibitor CB-839 and how well it works with panitumumab and irinotecan hydrochloride (phase I only) in treating patients with RAS wildtype colorectal cancer that has spread to other places in the body and does not respond to treatment. Glutaminase inhibitor CB-839 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as panitumumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan 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.
