This phase III trial studies how well blinatumomab works in combination with chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed, standard risk B-lymphoblastic leukemia or B-lymphoblastic lymphoma with or without Down syndrome. Monoclonal antibodies, such as blinatumomab, may induce changes in the body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vincristine, dexamethasone, prednisone, prednisolone, pegaspargase, methotrexate, cytarabine, mercaptopurine, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and thioguanine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Leucovorin decreases the toxic effects of methotrexate. Giving monoclonal antibody therapy with chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells. Giving blinatumomab and combination chemotherapy may work better than combination chemotherapy alone in treating patients with B-ALL. This trial also assigns patients into different chemotherapy treatment regimens based on risk (the chance of cancer returning after treatment). Treating patients with chemotherapy based on risk may help doctors decide which patients can best benefit from which chemotherapy treatment regimens.

Stroke survivors experience severe muscle wasting during the chronic phase of recovery, with implications for strength, function and general health. Although resistive exercise training effectively combats this problem, it is unknown whether sub-optimal protein intake limits the observed gains in skeletal muscle growth. Skeletal muscle adaptations may occur when resistive training (RT) is combined with nutritional therapy in the form of post- exercise protein consumption. This study would be the first to directly compare RT+protein supplementation to RT+placebo (same calories as protein supplement) in those with chronic hemiparesis caused by stroke, providing evidence-based rationale for combination therapy in the clinical care of this population.

This randomized phase III trial studies whether weight loss in overweight and obese women may prevent breast cancer from coming back (recurrence). Previous studies have found that women who are overweight or obese when their breast cancer is found (diagnosed) have a greater risk of their breast cancer recurring, as compared to women who were thinner when their cancer was diagnosed. This study aims to test whether overweight or obese women who take part in a weight loss program after being diagnosed with breast cancer have a lower rate of cancer recurrence as compared to women who do not take part in the weight loss program. This study will help to show whether weight loss programs should be a part of breast cancer treatment.

This study is for women in menopause with moderate to severe hot flashes. Menopause, a normal part of aging, is the time of a woman's last period. Hot flashes can interrupt a woman's daily life. The study treatments are fezolinetant low dose (1 tablet of fezolinetant and 1 placebo tablet) once a day, fezolinetant high dose (2 tablets of fezolinetant) once a day or placebo (2 tablets) once a day. (Placebo is a dummy treatment that looks like medicine but does not have any medicine in it.) The study will compare fezolinetant and placebo after 4 and 12 weeks of dosing. The study will see if fezolinetant reduces the number of hot flashes. And the study will see if fezolinetant reduces the severity of the hot flashes. Women in the study will receive an electronic handheld device at the first study visit. (It is similar to a smart phone.) Each day of the study, study participants will use this to record their hot flashes. Their record for the 10 days before the start of study treatment will be checked. They can remain in the study if their record shows 7 or 8 moderate to severe hot flashes per day (50 or more per week). Next, they will be picked for 1 of the 2 study treatments (fezolinetant or placebo) by chance alone. It is like flipping a coin. The study participants will take study treatment for 52 weeks. The first 12 weeks of study treatment are "double-blinded." That means that the study participants and the study doctors do not know who takes which of the study treatments (fezolinetant low dose, fezolinetant high dose or placebo) during that time. The last 40 weeks of study treatment are "noncontrolled." That means that each study participant and the study doctors know which study treatment that study participant takes during that time. Women who take fezolinetant during the first 12 weeks will continue to take the same dose. Women who take placebo during the first 12 weeks will start taking fezolinetant. Their dose will be either low dose or high dose fezolinetant. At weeks 2, 4, 8, 12, 14, 16 and then once a month, the study participants will go to the hospital or clinic for a check-up. They will be asked about medications, side effects and how they feel. Other checks will include physical exam and vital signs (heart rate, temperature and blood pressure). Blood and urine will be collected for laboratory tests. Study participants will complete questionnaires that are about how hot flashes affect their daily life. Study participants who still have their uterus will have the following 2 tests done at the first and last study visits. One of the 2 tests is endometrial biopsy. This test involves removing a small amount of tissue from the inside lining of the uterus. The tissue is then checked under a microscope. The other test is transvaginal ultrasound. This test uses sound waves to create pictures of the organs in the pelvis. The sound waves are transmitted by a probe (transducer), which is placed inside the vagina. Study participants may have a screening mammogram done at the first and/or last study visit. A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breasts used to screen for breast cancer. Study participants who did not have this test done in the last 12 months will have it done at the first study visit. They will have it done at the last study visit if they are due for their screening mammogram and their own doctor agrees. The last check-up at the hospital or clinic will be 3 weeks after the last dose of study treatment.
