This randomized phase III trial studies how well combination chemotherapy, bevacizumab, and/or atezolizumab work in treating patients with deficient deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) mismatch repair colorectal cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fluorouracil, oxaliplatin, and leucovorin calcium, 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. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab and atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving combination chemotherapy, bevacizumab, and atezolizumab may work better in treating patients with colorectal cancer.

Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) is common and deadly but without therapy. Inconclusive studies such as TOPCAT (Treatment of Preserved Cardiac Function Heart Failure With an Aldosterone Antagonist) suggest spironolactone may be effective in HFPEF, but it is generic and will not be studied by industry. SPIRRIT is a unique Registry-Randomized Clinical Trial (RRCT) that will test the hypothesis that spironolactone plus standard of care compared to standard of care alone reduces the composite of CV mortality and HF hospitalization as follows: Population: HFPEF patients in the Swedish Heart Failure Registry (2550 patients) and HFPEF patients in US (650 patients). HFPEF defined as symptoms/signs of HF, elevated NTproBNP (B-type Natriuretic Peptide; N-terminal pro b-type Natriuretic Peptide) and EF>=40%. Intervention and control: Randomized 1:1 to intervention: spironolactone + usual care vs. control: usual care alone. Outcome: Primary outcome cardiovascular death or time to HF hospitalization. Secondary outcomes include hospitalization for various causes, adverse events and treatment adherence. In Sweden outcomes are obtained automatically by linking with the Population, Patient and Drug Dispensed Registries. In the US, outcomes will be reported by sites and supplemented by data from a call center. The trial is event-driven with enrollment 3 years and study duration 5 years. For the primary outcome (CV Death or first HF hospitalization) with an event target of 632 events the sample size requires 3012 patients conservatively rounded to approximately 3200 patients. A detailed feasibility assessment shows that there will be > 8197 eligible patients to meet the required enrollment of 3200 patients.

The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of a school-based treatment aimed at increasing language and social skills in preschool-aged children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Through interactive development (continually seeking educator feedback for intervention improvement) and implementation of the intervention, the investigators hope to provide a feasible and practical means for educators to work with children with ASD in real world, large scale settings. ASD preschool educators, the children enrolled in their classes, between the ages of 3 and 6 years and their families may join.

The purpose of this research study is to determine how well neratinib works in treating breast cancer that has spread to the brain. Neratinib is a recently discovered oral drug that may stop breast cancer cells from growing abnormally by inhibiting (or blocking) members of a family of proteins that include Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 (HER2). In this research study, the investigators are looking to see how well neratinib works to decrease the size of or stabilize breast cancer that has spread to the brain. The investigators are also looking at how previous treatments have affected your thinking (or cognition) and how much neratinib reaches the central nervous system.

Background: - Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is often treated with drugs known as tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors, that can help decrease joint pain and swelling and can even result in RA remission. However, TNF inhibitors may increase risk of serious infections or some types of cancer. - It is not clear if people whose RA has been in remission for a long time need to stay on the TNF inhibitor to remain in remission. If they can stop taking the TNF inhibitor without having their symptoms come back, they will be spared the side effects of these medicines. Some studies have shown that people can stay in remission after stopping a TNF inhibitor, but other studies have not confirmed it. Researchers want to see if people with RA in remission on a TNF inhibitor can stay in remission without this medicine. Also there may be a clinical, imaging (MRI, ultrasound), laboratory profile that will help to determine which patients remain in remission after stopping these drugs. Objectives: - To see whether RA remission can continue after discontinuing use of a TNF inhibitor. - To determine if clinical, imaging and immunological measurements can predict which participants will flare and which will remain in remission after discontinuing TNF inhibitor. Eligibility: -Individuals at least 18 years of age who have RA that is being controlled with TNF inhibitors. We plan to randomize 291 patients. Design: - The study has seven visits over about 2 years. Six visits occur in the first year of the study, about 12 weeks apart. The final study visit is 1 year after the end of the treatment phase. - At the first visit, participants will be screened with a physical exam and medical history. They will complete a questionnaire about their RA symptoms. A blood sample will be collected. They will continue to take their RA medicines during this time. - The second visit will repeat tests from the first visit. These tests will confirm that the RA is in remission. Imaging studies will be performed on the hands, wrists, feet, and their connected joints. After this visit, participants will stop taking their TNF inhibitors and will start to have injections of a study drug. This drug will be either the participant's original TNF inhibitor or a placebo. - There will be follow-up visits at weeks 12, 24, and 36. Participants will have a medical history and joint exam. They will also provide blood samples and answer questions about their RA symptoms. - At the sixth visit (week 48), participants will repeat the tests and imaging studies from the second visit. They will stop taking the study injections. - Continued RA treatment after this visit will be decided by the participant and his or her rheumatologist. Participants may take any recommended medicine, including the TNF inhibitor they had been taking before the study. They will also receive a questionnaire to complete at home and mail back before the final study visit. - At the final visit (week 100), participants will repeat the tests and imaging studies from the second and sixth visits.

This randomized phase IIb trial studies how well low-dose carvedilol works in preventing heart failure in cancer survivors exposed to high dose anthracyclines for management of childhood cancer. Patients who received high-dose anthracycline chemotherapy are at a much greater risk for developing heart failure compared to survivors who didn't get any anthracycline chemotherapy. Heart failure happens when the heart muscle has been weakened and can't pump blood as well as it should. Carvedilol may help lower the risk of cardiovascular complications.
