Nasal saline irrigations are a safe and commonly used mechanism to treat a variety of sinonasal diseases including sinusitis, rhinitis, and upper respiratory tract infections. When used properly, these irrigations are a safe and easy intervention available over the counter without a prescription. Additionally, baby shampoo has been found to be a safe additive functioning as a surfactant when a small amount is added to the saline rinses which may help augment clearance of the sinonasal cavity. While many systemic medications and treatments have been proposed for COVID-19, there has not yet been a study looking at targeted local intervention to the nasal cavity and nasopharynx where the viral load is the highest. Studies have shown that the use of simple over the counter nasal saline irrigations can decrease viral shedding in the setting of viral URIs, including the common coronavirus (not SARS-CoV-2). Further, as SARS-CoV-2 is an enveloped virus, mild-detergent application with nasal saline would neutralize the virus further. It is our hypothesis that nasal saline or nasal saline with baby shampoo irrigations may decrease viral shedding/viral load and viral transmission, secondary bacterial load, nasopharyngeal inflammation in patients infected with the novel SARS-CoV-2.

This is a multicenter, Phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of etrolizumab compared with placebo during induction and maintenance treatment of moderately to severely active Crohn's Disease (CD). The target population includes participants with CD who are refractory or intolerant to corticosteroids (CS) and/or immunosuppressant (IS) therapy and who have either not received prior anti-tumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF) therapy (TNF-naive) or who have had prior exposure to anti-TNF therapies and demonstrated inadequate responses or intolerance to anti-TNFs. The study period will consist of a Screening Phase (up to 35 days) plus (+) a 14-week Induction Phase + a 52-week Maintenance Phase + a 12-week Safety Follow-up Phase. At Week 14 (end of Induction Phase), participants achieving a decrease from baseline of at least 70 points in the Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) score (CDAI-70 response) without the use of rescue therapy will continue to the Maintenance Phase.

Eligible untreated patients with FLT3 acute myeloid leukemia (AML) between the ages of 18 and 65 will be randomized to receive gilteritinib or midostaurin during induction and consolidation. Patients will also receive standard chemotherapy of daunorubicin and cytarabine during induction and high-dose cytarabine during consolidation. Gilteritinib, is an oral drug that works by stopping the leukemia cells from making the FLT3 protein. This may help stop the leukemia cells from growing faster and thus may help make chemotherapy more effective. Gilteritinib has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients who have relapsed or refractory AML with a FLT3 mutation but is not approved by the FDA for newly diagnosed FLT3 AML, and its use in this setting is considered investigational. Midostaurin is an oral drug that works by blocking several proteins on cancer cells, including FLT3 that can help leukemia cells grow. Blocking this pathway can cause death to the leukemic cells. Midostaurin is approved by the FDA for the treatment of FLT3 AML. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of gilteritinib to midostaurin in patients receiving standard combination chemotherapy for FLT3 AML.
