Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common chronic condition, affecting approximately 20% of the American adult population. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are now the mainstay of medical therapy for symptoms of GERD. Despite their efficacy, several studies have shown that a significant proportion of GERD patients are either partial or non-responders to PPI therapy, defined as symptoms of heartburn and/or regurgitation not relieved by either a standard or double dose of a PPI during a minimum trial of 8 weeks. If GERD symptoms persist, further testing is required. This study will mirror the real world setting to assess the value of published guidelines which recommend specific testing and treatment.

The objective of this randomized control trial is to investigate the efficacy of an adjunct positive airway pressure (PAP) nebulizer device known as "AccuPAP" in the treatment of moderate-severity acute asthma exacerbations in children ages 6 - 17 years in comparison with an institutional standard continuous dual-therapy nebulizer treatment. The investigators main goal, more specifically, is to determine if the additional positive airway pressure provided by the AccuPAP device when used in treating children with moderate-severity asthma exacerbations provides a more optimal delivery of bronchodilator therapy when compared to institutional standard protocol nebulizer delivery mask which does not employ the use of positive airway pressure in medication delivery. The investigators have determined that the change in a study-validated Acute Asthma Intensity Research Score (AAIRS) which will be considered statistically significant for a patient is 2 points or greater after the first treatment has been completed.

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.

Background: -Patients who are being evaluated and/or treated at the NIH Clinical Center (pediatric and adult) and adult patients at participating sites will be entered onto this tissue procurement protocol for collection of tissue specimens. Objectives: - To obtain samples from adult and pediatric patients for research purposes from tests and procedures that are done as required by the primary research protocol(s) to which a patient is enrolled or as part of their standard-of-care treatment. - To obtain samples for research purposes from non-surgical procedures, such as percutaneous biopsies, performed for the sole purpose of obtaining tissue specimens or biological fluids for this protocol. Eligibility: -Adult patients (18 years of age and older) and pediatric patients (younger than 18 years of age) who are being evaluated for and/or treated for cancer at the NIH Clinical Center and adult patients from participating sites. Design: - This is a multicenter tissue procurement protocol with NCI as the coordinating center. - For adult patients: specimens for research purposes, as outlined in this protocol, will be obtained from tests and procedures that are done as required by the primary research protocols to which a patient is enrolled or as part of their standard-of-care treatment. Non-surgical procedures, such as percutaneous biopsies, may also be performed for the sole purpose of obtaining tissue specimens or biological fluids for this protocol. Tissues and biological fluids to be procured may include but are not limited to blood, serum, urine, tumor tissue, normal tissue, pleural fluid, CSF, saliva, bronchial alveolar lavage (BAL), circulating tumor cells, hair follicles, and bone marrow. These specimens will be stored with unique identifiers and used to perform only those research studies that are outlined in this protocol. - For pediatric patients: tumor biopsy/resection tissue used for pediatric preclinical model development will only be from tissue already being obtained as part of a procedure necessary for the patient s clinical care or as part of a primary research protocol; blood specimens will be collected as part of a blood collection already scheduled for the patient s clinical care or as part of the planned pre-procedure bloodwork; volumes collected will not exceed institutional research limits. - Given the risks associated with any invasive procedure, such as tumor biopsy, the procedure will be discussed in detail with the patients and their parents/guardian (as indicated), including the side effects, prior to obtaining a separate consent for each procedure. A separate consent will not be signed prior to obtaining samples by minimally invasive measures, such as venipuncture. - This study has three separate consent forms: one for adult patients at the NIH Clinical Center to opt to donate their samples for ongoing research on assay development and studies of molecular pathways; and two for the generation of preclinical models (adult and pediatric). Adult patients at the NIH and participating sites, and also pediatric patients (NIH Clinical Center only), can opt to donate samples to create preclinical models to study tumor biology and genetics, and to develop new therapies for cancer. - Patients may remain on study for the duration of their consent or completion of the planned procedure, whichever comes first.
