Vanderbilt conducts research studies and clinical trials in various divisions throughout the Medical Center. We know that figuring out where to start can be one of the biggest obstacles a volunteer faces when searching for research study opportunities.

The purpose of the study is to assess the effectiveness and safety of a new device called an Intramural Needle Ablation Catheter (INA catheter). The INA catheter is used for locating and ablating ventricular arrhythmias that have failed standard radiofrequency ablation. This approach is desirable because some people have ventricular arrhythmias that originate deep within the heart muscle where it is not abolished by ablation with standard catheters. The investigators seek to determine whether the INA catheter can potentially help people who have ventricular arrhythmias that have failed standard radiofrequency ablation. The investigators also want to determine if it is likely to be safe, without excessive side effects.

The goal of this study is to evaluate the effect of treatment of post-op wound infection in long bones after fracture fixation or joint fusion and either: (Group 1) operative debridement and PO antibiotic treatment for 6 weeks; or (Group 2) operative debridement and IV antibiotics for 6 weeks. Primary Hypothesis: The rate of treatment failure by one year in Group 1 will be non-inferior to the rate in Group 2. Treatment failure is defined as wound problems that require surgery >2 weeks after initial debridement, infection recurrence, infection with a new pathogen, joint erosion, implant failure, medical problems related to the treatment administration which necessitates a switch from one arm to the other.

This clinical trial studies cognitive function in men with prostate cancer treated with androgen receptor directed therapies such as abiraterone acetate and enzalutamide. The investigators use MRI imaging (non-invasive, non-contrast) to see whether there are changes in brain structure or activity related to treatment that may be related to changes in cognitive function. The investigators are also looking for genetic variations that might make patients more or less sensitive to cognitive changes during treatment for prostate cancer.

This study will look at how effective the study drug (tepotinib) is at stopping the growth and spread of lung cancer. This study will also measure a number of other things including safety of the study drug and the side effects, how body processes the study drug, or how the study drug affects your quality of life. The study also has an optional pharmacogenetic research part. Pharmacogenetic research is an important way to try to understand the role of genetics in human disease and how genes impact the effectiveness of drugs, because differences in genes can change the way a person responds to a particular drug.

The primary objective of Cohort 1 of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and antiviral activity (HBV DNA < 20 IU/mL) of tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) 25 mg once daily versus placebo through Week 24 in treatment-naive and treatment-experienced adolescent adolescents (aged 12 to < 18 years) with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). Cohort 2 will consist of 2 parts: Part A and Part B. Intensive pharmacokinetic (PK) data will be collected from all participants in Part A to confirm the dose of TAF in each dose group and the remaining participants will be enrolled into Part B once dose confirmation is achieved. The primary objectives of Part A are to evaluate the steady-state PK of TAF and tenofovir (TFV) and confirm the dose of TAF given once daily in children (aged 2 to < 12 years) with CHB. The primary objective of Part B is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of TAF at Week 48 and the antiviral activity (HBV DNA < 20 IU/mL) of TAF at Week 24 in children (aged 2 to < 12 years) with CHB.

Thoracentesis is a very common procedure, rarely associated with severe complications. One relatively common complication is chest discomfort, which is most of the time felt to be secondary to negative pleural pressures generated during the procedure. While most proceduralists use suction to drain the pleural fluid, some drain effusions by gravity only. The investigators propose to evaluate whether gravity-driven thoracentesis results in less discomfort for patients than suction-drive thoracentesis.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well standard-dose combination chemotherapy works compared to high-dose combination chemotherapy and stem cell transplant in treating patients with germ cell tumors that have returned after a period of improvement or did not respond to treatment. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, ifosfamide, cisplatin, carboplatin, and etoposide, 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 chemotherapy before a stem cell transplant stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. Giving colony-stimulating factors, such as filgrastim or pegfilgrastim, and certain chemotherapy drugs, helps stem cells move from the bone marrow to the blood so they can be collected and stored. Chemotherapy is then given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. It is not yet known whether high-dose combination chemotherapy and stem cell transplant are more effective than standard-dose combination chemotherapy in treating patients with refractory or relapsed germ cell tumors.

This is a multicenter, randomized, open-label phase 2/3 study of Toca 511 and Toca FC versus standard of care that comprises Investigator's choice of single agent chemotherapy (lomustine or temozolomide) or bevacizumab administered to subjects undergoing resection for first or second recurrence (including this recurrence) of GBM or AA. Subjects meeting all of the inclusion and none of the exclusion criteria will be randomized prior to surgery in a 1:1 ratio to receive either Toca 511 and Toca FC (Experimental arm, Arm T) or control treatment with one option of standard of care (Arm SOC). Stratification will be done by IDH1 mutation status. A second stratification factor is based on the patient's Karnofsky Performance Score (KPS) (70-80 vs 90-100). Further, to account for potential differences in treatment choices for the control arm in regions, the trial will be stratified by geographical region during the randomization process.
