This is a randomized trial for patients with metastatic hormone receptor (HR)-positive human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer who have progressed on an aromatase inhibitor plus a CDK4/6 inhibitor (either palbociclib or ribociclib) to either fulvestrant alone or fulvestrant with ribociclib (LEE-011). The purpose of the trial is to determine whether there is continued benefit for patients to remain on a CDK4/6 inhibitor at the time of switching anti-estrogen therapy. As ribociclib and palbociclib have a similar toxicity and drug profile and mechanism of action, we feel that it is appropriate for patients to receive either drug with an aromatase inhibitor prior to randomization.

Perioperative Antibiotic Therapy to Prevent Cardiac Implantable Electronic Device Infections.

The number of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) implanted each year has grown rapidly over the past two decades. CIED infections, defined as infections involving the generator implant site (pocket) and/or intravascular leads, have become increasingly prevalent, with the rate of growth in infections outpacing that of CIED procedures. The odds of both short term and long term mortality are at least doubled in patients who suffer CIED infections, and long term survival is particularly poor in women. Optimal strategies to prevent CIED infections in high-risk patients are largely unproven. However, recent observational studies of an antibiotic-coated envelope implanted at the time of CIED procedure have shown that this strategy is associated with a low incidence of CIED infections. Other interventions to prevent CIED infections, including the use of antibiotic irrigant used to wash the pocket during implantation and postoperative oral antibiotics, are commonly used but not supported by rigorous controlled studies. The Specific Aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that the use of the antibacterial envelope alone is noninferior to a strategy using the antibacterial envelope and intraoperative antibacterial irrigant and postoperative oral antibiotics for the reduction of cardiac implantable device infections in patients with ≥2 risk factors for infection.

There are several methods of closing a skin cut: stitches, skin glue, and medical tape. Stitches have been used for a long time to close skin cuts. Skin glue (invented in the 1970s) and medical tape (invented in the 1960s) are two newer methods to close skin cuts. The purpose of this study is to find out which method (stitches, skin glue, or medical tape) of closing skin cuts results in the least amount of scarring. Other things the investigators will be looking at are which method is the cheapest, which causes the least pain, which requires the least amount of sedation, and which method patients and parents like the best.

The majority of the over one million annual AHF hospitalizations originate from the emergency department. Admitting and re-admitting lower risk AHF patients who don't need prolonged hospitalization may increase their risk for poor outcomes and decrease their quality of life: Safe alternatives to hospitalization from the ED are needed. We propose a strategy-of-care, short stay unit management of AHF (i.e. less than 24 hours), will lead to improved outcomes for lower risk AHF patients.

Ventilated ICU patients frequently have sepsis and the majority have delirium, a form of brain dysfunction that is an independent predictor of increased risk of dying, length of stay, costs, and prolonged cognitive impairment in survivors. Universally prescribed sedative medications—the GABA-ergic benzodiazepines—worsen this brain organ dysfunction. The available alternative sedation regimens, the shorter acting GABA-ergic propofol, and the alpha2 agonist, dexmedetomidine, have both been shown to be superior to benzodiazepines, and yet are different with regard to their effects on innate immunity, bacterial clearance, apoptosis, cognition and delirium. The MENDS2 study will compare propofol and dexmedetomidine, and determine the best sedative medication to reduce delirium and improve survival and long-term brain function in our most vulnerable patients— the ventilated septic patient.
