VIVID is a prospective, multicenter, randomized clinical trial that will evaluate three specific research questions. In black patients eligible for a primary prevention implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), 1) what is the effect of a patient-centered educational video compared with usual care (UC) on knowledge of SCD (Sudden Cardiac Death), associated risk factors, and ICDs; 2) what is the effect of a patient-centered educational video compared with UC on the decision for ICD implantation, decisional conflict, and receipt of an ICD within 90 days of the decision; 3) what is the effect of racial concordance between study patients and video participants (health care providers/patients) on the decision for ICD implantation, decisional conflict and ICD receipt within 90 days of the decision. In addition, in-depth qualitative interviews (IQI) with a sample of trial participants will be conducted to determine the salient influences on their decision and explore the reasons for their ultimate decision and subsequent implantation or non-implantation of an ICD. Approximately 480 patients eligible for a primary prevention ICD will be enrolled at approximately 12 hospitals in this study. Study sites selected for VIVID will be geographically diverse and provide care to a significant proportion of racial and ethnic minority patients. Patient's will be mailed a letter, regarding the study, prior to their initial visit. At the initial visit, patients will be approached about participation in the trial. For those interested, informed consent will be obtained and patients will be randomized. The investigators will be utilizing electronic consents on an iPad. Black patients will be randomized to one of 3 arms: educational videos presented in the same format; one with black participants (patients and providers) or the other with white participants (patients and providers); The third arm will be usual care (control) and the provider can interact with the patient consistent with their typical/usual care. Notably, for both intervention and control arms, all patient management decisions are completely at the discretion of the care providers.

This is a prospective, randomized, double-blinded, single site study examining the impact of a biofilm-based treatment of chronic wounds of the lower extremity. 200 subjects will be enrolled in this study. Benzalkonium solution wound irrigation and Benzalkonium wound gel will be compared to standard of care wound preparation and dressing (NS wound irrigation and hydrocolloid gel) following local debridement. Wounds will be assessed maximum of 12 weeks with a minimum of 4 follow up visits. Patients will be recruited from the general wound clinic population. No enticement will be offered and participation will be completely voluntary. At enrollment and at each follow up visit the wound will be assessed for size (length, width, and depth), signs of infection or irritation, qualitative and quantitative cultures will be taken before and after debridement, patients will be assessed for compliance to the treatment protocol, satisfaction with their treatment, any adverse effects of the treatment, and hospitalizations since last assessment. It is anticipated that enrollment and completion of the study will take 1 year.

Following the sudden and unexpected emergence of influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 (2009 H1N1) virus, this observational study was initiated to estimate rates of morbidity and mortality and to examine predictors of severity among participants with 2009 H1N1 infection. In 2011, as surveillance indicated that 2009 H1N1 virus was co-circulating with other seasonal influenza A and B viruses worldwide, the protocol was expanded to include other influenza A subtypes and influenza B viruses. The current version of the protocol (released in August 2013) further broadens the scope of this observational study. With the recognition that novel respiratory viruses other than novel influenza A viruses, e.g., Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV), could become prevalent and of major public health importance, the objectives of this protocol have been expanded.

One in five women will undergo prolapse surgery in their lifetime, and there is a strong correlation between prolapse and urinary incontinence. Pelvic floor surgeons aspire to improve relevant quality of life outcomes for women with pelvic floor disorders while minimizing complications and unnecessary procedures. There has been an experience of disappointment and frustration when a patient returns following POP repair with new symptoms of SUI that she ranks as a greater disruption to her quality of life than her original vaginal bulge. While retropubic (RP) slings are considered to be the "gold-standard" referent for other slings with long-term outcomes data, they are associated with the highest risks of intra- and post-operative complications including bladder injury, bleeding, and post-operative voiding dysfunction. Single-incision slings (SIS) are the latest iteration in sling development that build upon the benefits of slings but avoid passage through the muscles of the inner thigh. The hypothesis for this study is that single-incision slings (Altis ™) are non-inferior to Retropubic mid-urethral slings when placed at the time of native tissue vaginal repair.

Based on strong pre-clinical evidence of the effects of Nilotinib on neurodegenerative pathologies, including autophagic clearance of neurotoxic proteins, neurotransmitters (dopamine and glutamate), immunity and behavior, the investigators conducted an open label pilot clinical trial in mid-to-advanced PD with dementia (PDD) and Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) (stage 3-4) patients. Participants (N=12) were randomized 1:1 to once daily oral dose of 150mg and 300mg Nilotinib for 6 months. The investigators data suggests that Nilotinib penetrates the brain and inhibits CSF Abelson (Abl) activity via reduction of phosphorylated Abl in agreement with pre-clinical data. Several studies suggest that CSF alpha-Synuclein and Abeta42 are decreased and CSF total Tau and p-Tau are increased in PD and DLB. The investigators data shows attenuation of loss of CSF alpha-Synuclein and Abeta40/42 with 300mg (50% of the CML dose) compared to 150mg Nilotinib after 6 months treatment. CSF homovanillic acid (HVA), which is a by-product of dopamine metabolism, is significantly increased; and CSF total Tau and p-Tau are significantly reduced (N=5, P<0.05) with 300mg Nilotinib between baseline and 6 months treatment. Despite the reduction of L-Dopa replacement therapies in our study, the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UDPRS) I-IV scores improved with 150mg (3.5 points) and 300mg (11 points) from baseline to 6 months and worsened (13.7 points and 11.4 points) after 3 months withdrawal of 150mg and 300mg, respectively. Other non-motor functions e.g. constipation was resolved in all patients and cognition was also improved (3.5 points) using both the Mini-Mental Status Exam (MMSE) or the Scales for Outcomes in Parkinson's Disease-Cognition (SCOPA-Cog) between baseline and 6 months. MMSE scores returned to baseline after 3 months of Nilotinib withdrawal. These data are very compelling to evaluate the effects of Nilotinib in an open label proof-of-concept study in patients with HD.

Among Veterans, the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is reported to be as high as 47.3% and a third higher than the general population. Muscle wasting and dysfunction have been identified as primary consequences of CKD. Disease-induced reductions in lean tissue adversely affect muscle fatigability. Consequently, muscle fatigability may serve as a potential limiting factor that contributes to activity limitations. However, there is a lack of evidence informing our understanding of muscle fatigability in patients with CKD. Dialysis treatment is a major factor contributing to the high financial costs of CKD care. Thus, in addition to potential health and quality of life benefits, treatments capable of maintaining kidney function or delaying the onset of dialysis treatment would provide substantial socio-economic benefit. Both lean body mass and muscle fatigability may be improved through strength training. Eccentric-overload (i.e. muscle lengthening) progressive resistance exercise (PRE) has been shown to be safe and effective for a variety of chronic conditions. Eccentric PRE using portable flywheel technology may provide a clinically viable treatment option to combat muscle impairments in CKD given the cost effectiveness and minimal space requirements for this mode of exercise. The purpose of this study is to assess feasibility of the eccentric-overload PRE regimen for Veterans with CKD stage 3 & 4 predialysis using a prospective single-arm pre-test post-test intervention design. The primary aim of the project is to determine the effects of eccentric-overload PRE on muscle fatigability in Veterans with CKD Stages 3 & 4 predialysis. Feasibility of the regimen will be determined by the time needed to complete the 4-exercise regimen and the perceived exertion levels reported by the study participants.

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a daily pill that greatly reduces the risk of transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), however the barriers to PrEP use for women are understudied and PrEP is underutilized by women. Partnering with the DC Department of Health and the DC Center for AIDS Research (DC-CFAR), the overarching goals are (1) to identify and populate the PrEP cascade for women, (2) to provide a blueprint for family planning providers to integrate HIV prevention into their practices and target evidence-based interventions to the women at highest risk for HIV in their communities, and (3) to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of this intervention. The overarching hypotheses are that (1) the timeline and roadmap to PrEP adoption and the PrEP cascade will be different for cis-gender women than that described for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women, (2) women seeking family planning services will be eligible for and interested in PrEP and family planning providers are ideally situated to provide this care, and (3) provision of PrEP in the family planning setting will be cost-effective. This research proposes to evaluate (1) PrEP cascade of events for women (eligibility for PrEP, acceptability/interest in PrEP, access/linkage to a PrEP program, initiation of PrEP, retention, and adherence to PrEP) and (2) the integration of universal screening for PrEP and PrEP provision into a women's family planning clinic. This research will allow for targeted evidence-based interventions to reach women at high-risk for HIV and will provide a blueprint for the implementation of PrEP services in the family planning setting nationally.
