Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy as an Imaging Biomarker for the Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cystic Lesions (CLIMB)

This study will evaluate EUS-nCLE (Endoscopic ultrasound needle-based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy) as an imaging biomarker and PCL (pancreatic cystic lesion) fluid DNA analysis as a molecular biomarker for the management of PCLs. Each of the objectives will be assessed by: Utilizing EUS-nCLE alone, utilizing EUS-nCLE with cyst fluid molecular markers, optimal combination of clinical features, imaging features, cyst fluid analysis, EUS-nCLE, and cyst fluid molecular markers. The primary objectives will be to: distinguish between mucinous and non-mucinous PCLs, distinguish mucinous PCLs that have advanced neoplasia (high-grade dysplasia or cancer) from those with low-grade dysplasia, and distinguish individual distinct types of PCLs.

Rare CFTR Mutation Cell Collection Protocol (RARE) (RARE)

We are doing the RARE study to learn more about Cystic Fibrosis (CF). CF is caused by mutations in a gene that produces a protein called the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). In people with CF, the CFTR does not function correctly. Medications are being developed to help the CFTR function better, but those medications mostly benefit people with common CFTR mutations. There are more than 1,900 mutations of the CF gene. Some of these mutations are rare and found only in a few people. The goal of this research study is to collect specimens (blood, nasal cells, rectal cells) from people with rare CFTR mutations. Another purpose of this study is to create induced pluripotent stem cells or iPS cells. “Pluripotent” stem cells are cells that can be changed into almost any cell type of the body (such as lung or intestine). They can be kept alive and stored indefinitely. There are different kinds of pluripotent stem cells. Inducted pluripotent stem cells can be created from many different kinds of specimens (such as blood, nasal cells, rectal cells). This is different from embryonic stem cells, which can only be derived from embryos. The specimens collected during this study and iPS cells created from them will be stored for use in future research to learn more about CF and study the effect of new medications. This could identify new medications that may help people with rare CFTR mutations.

Long-term Follow-up of Participants With Cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy Who Were Treated With Lenti-D Drug Product

This is a multi-center, long-term safety and efficacy follow-up study for subjects with cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy (CALD) who have received Lenti-D Drug Product in parent clinical studies. Lenti-D Drug Product is defined as an autologous CD34+ cell-enriched population that contains cells transduced with Lenti-D lentiviral vector encoding the human adrenoleukodystrophy protein. In parent studies, male subjects with CALD are infused on a single occasion with Lenti-D Drug Product, and then followed for 24 (±1) month for safety and efficacy. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) recommend long-term follow-up for subjects treated with gene therapy drug products to monitor for selected adverse events (AEs), as well as durability of clinical response. Therefore, after subjects have completed the parent clinical studies, they will be asked to participate in a long-term follow-up Study LTF-304, in which they will be followed every 6 months through 5 years post-drug product infusion, and then annually through 15 years post-drug product infusion. Safety evaluations will include documentation of drug product-related AEs, all serious adverse events (SAEs) regardless of attribution to the drug product, CALD-related ≥Grade 2 AEs, and integration site analysis for the detection of clonal dominance through 15 years post drug product infusion, as well as archiving for RCL testing through 5 years post‑drug product infusion. Efficacy evaluations will include CALD disease-specific assessments, primarily major functional disabilities and brain MRI, with additional exploratory assessments for change in Loes score, Loes pattern, neurologic function score (NFS), very long chain fatty acids (VLCFA), intelligence quotient (IQ), and health related quality of life (HRQoL) assessment. To monitor pharmacodynamics, vector copy number in peripheral blood (PB VCN; vector copies per diploid genome [c/dg]) and transgenic protein expression of adrenoleukodystrophy protein (ALDP) in peripheral blood will be measured at designated study visits. There is no designated Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) for Study LTF-304; however, the review of safety data for this study, including AEs, SAEs and relevant laboratory values, may be performed by the DMC convened for the parent study in which the subject(s) originally participated.

A Sequenced Strategy for Improving Outcomes in People With Knee Osteoarthritis Pain (SKOAP)

There is an urgent public health need to reduce our reliance on opioids for effective long-term pain management, particularly in knee osteoarthritis (KOA). This effectiveness trial will compare recommended treatments to reduce pain and functional limitations in KOA and identify clinical and patient-level factors associated with treatment response. These results will lead to improved patient selection for treatment and inform evidence based guidelines by offering well-tested, effective, non-opioid alternatives.

A Phase I/II Study of Nivolumab, Ipilimumab and Plinabulin in Patients With Recurrent Small Cell Lung Cancer

This is an open-label Phase I/II study, with a dose escalation part (Phase I) and a 2-arm randomized part (Phase II), in patients with recurrent small cell lung cancer. In the Phase I part, patients will receive plinabulin at escalating doses in combination with nivolumab and ipilimumab. In the Phase II part, approximately 40 patients will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive either nivolumab + ipilimumab (Arm NI) or the triple combination of plinabulin (at the recommended phase 2 dose) + nivolumab + ipilimumab (Arm PNI). Patients will continue treatment until disease progression, development of unacceptable toxicity or one of the protocol-defined reasons for treatment discontinuation occurs.

Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Safety Profile of Understudied Drugs Administered to Children Per Standard of Care (POPS) (POPS or POP02)

The majority of drugs administered to children are used off label, and PK studies to define appropriate dosing are lacking across pediatric age groups and special populations of children. Challenges associated with clinical trials in children limit the ability to conduct PK and dosing trials in this population. Studies capitalizing on standard-of-care procedures have proven successful in characterizing the PK of drugs used in children. The purpose of this study is to characterize the PK of understudied drugs administered to children per SOC as prescribed by their treating provider. This study will serve as a tool to better understand drug exposure in children receiving drugs per SOC. The data collected through this initiative will provide valuable PK and dosing information for drugs in different pediatric age groups as well as special populations of children, such as premature infants, critically ill children receiving ECMO or CRRT, children with Down syndrome and children with obesity, for which dosing may vary due to altered PK. In addition, the data collected in this study will serve as preliminary data to design and plan the best and most efficacious BPCA trials, proof-of-concept studies associated with biomarkers, and data to support applications for extramural funding. All of the drugs studied in this protocol are used as standard of care in children and are approved in adults. There will be multiple INDs held by the core study Principal Investigator: Danny Benjamin, MD, PhD (IND Sponsor) Kiser-Arena Distinguished Professor of Pediatrics, Duke University Faculty Associate Director, Duke Clinical Research Institute PO Box 17969 Durham NC 27715 Phone: 919-668-8295 Fax: 919-681-9457 danny.benjamin@duke.edu The Funding Sponsor is The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) NOTE: We will be participating in the COVID 19 arm of this study, which includes 6 drugs of interest (DOI). All other arms are on hold currently; and focus has been placed on the COVID 19 arm. However, in the future we may be interested in participating in other DOIs. The details of this arm of the study will be provided at the end of this document. (See Appendix P, pages 82-86 of main protocol)
