Impact of Nilotinib on Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Biomarkers in Dementia With Lewy Bodies
Georgetown University Dementia With Lewy Bodies
Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) is an alphasynucleinopathy and the second most common form of dementia in the elderly. DLB shares striking neuropathological and clinical similarities with both Parkinson's disease (PD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). Nilotinib (Tasigna®, AMN107,... expand

Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) is an alphasynucleinopathy and the second most common form of dementia in the elderly. DLB shares striking neuropathological and clinical similarities with both Parkinson's disease (PD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). Nilotinib (Tasigna®, AMN107, Novartis, Switzerland) is approved by the FDA and is well tolerated for CML treatment at oral doses of 600-800mg daily. The Investigators propose to perform a phase II randomized, double blinded, placebo controlled study to evaluate the impact of Nilotinib in patients with DLB.

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.

QT interval prolongation and neutropenia are considered to be important identified risks for ribociclib (Kisqali® Prescribing Information, Investigator Brochure). The approved dosing regimen of ribociclib is 600 mg daily (QD) on a 3 weeks on/1 week off schedule. The purpose of the study is to explore whether a reduced dosing regimen of 400 mg ribociclib orally QD 3 weeks on/1 week off may decrease the risk of QTc prolongation without compromising the efficacy of ribociclib in combination with an NSAI in pre- and postmenopausal women with HR-positive, HER2-negative aBC who have received no prior therapy for advanced disease. The risks of other AEs of special interest, such as neutropenia and hepatobiliary toxicity will be evaluated in this study as well. Approximately 350 patients will be randomly assigned to one of the below treatment arms in a 1:1 ratio: Experimental arm (Arm 1) - Ribociclib 400 mg QD 3 weeks on/1 week off + NSAI (+ goserelin in premenopausal women): 175 patients Control arm (Arm 2) - Ribociclib 600 mg QD 3 weeks on/1 week off + NSAI (+ goserelin in premenopausal women): 175 patients Randomization will be stratified by the presence of lung and/or liver metastases (yes versus no).

Probiotics are live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host. One of the most common indications for probiotic treatment is the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD). Unfortunately, many probiotic products used for AAD are not supported by rigorous independent research, and often results in non-evidence-based usage. The overarching objective is to move research forward for the most well-studied Bifidobacterium strain. The primary aim is to test the efficacy of high dose, BB-12-supplemented yogurt in preventing AAD, compared to yogurt without BB-12, in children receiving antibiotics. Other aims are to further assess the safety of yogurt supplemented with BB-12, and to carry out longitudinal community structure and gene expression analysis of fecal microbiota to evaluate the impact of high dose BB-12 in a pediatric population receiving antibiotics. The microbiota includes hundreds of species, and its disruption is hypothesized to be an important factor in the development of AAD.
