Rehabilitation Manometry Study

Oropharyngeal dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, is a devastating condition that affects physiological and psychosocial functioning in 1 in 25 adults. Many dysphagia treatments exist, but our ability to adequately measure treatment outcomes is limited. Pharyngeal high-resolution manometry (pHRM) directly measures swallowing pressures, providing an objective measurement of physiology that characterizes the basic mechanisms of swallowing. pHRM is well-poised to measure outcomes of dysphagia treatments due to its direct, objective, and reproducible measures of swallowing function. This proposed project will address a central hypotheses that objective swallowing measures (including (pHRM) will reveal treatment-mediated swallowing changes, will align with patient-reported outcome measures, and will be able to predict who will benefit from treatment. The investigators will follow a cohort of participants with oropharyngeal dysphagia as they undergo either pharyngeal strengthening therapy or relief of upper esophageal sphincter outlet obstruction at three time points: baseline, mid-treatment (4-6 weeks) and post-treatment (10-12 weeks). The investigators will compare participants to healthy controls using pHRM, videofluoroscopy, diet assessment, functional reserve tests, and patient-reported outcome measures.

OAR-Based, Dose Escalated SBRT With Real Time Adaptive MRI Guidance for Liver Metastases

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) is a noninvasive local therapy with proven efficacy in a number of solid tumor types. However, colorectal cancer (CRC) liver metastases have been shown to be particularly resistant to SBRT, and often are found to have significantly worse rates of control compared with other histologies. Higher SBRT dose was recently shown to improve local control in CRC pulmonary metastases, however, increasing dose delivery with SBRT has been limited based on the risk of toxicity to adjacent structures, and the ability to visualize them during treatment. This is particularly relevant in treating liver tumors, as tumor and small bowel movement can often make tumor targeting and organs-at-risk (OAR) avoidance especially difficult. MRI-guided SBRT for liver tumors is both safe and feasible and offers an as yet unprecedented opportunity to achieve the highest possible safe dose to liver tumors. The purpose of this trial is to identify a safe maximum tolerated dose level for MRI-guided SBRT treatment of bowel and liver metastases, respectively. Eligible participants will be on study for up to 12 months.

Treatment of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Infections With Viral-Specific T Cells

The present trial will consist of the treatment of 20 pediatric and adult Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) recipients or immunocompromised participants diagnosed with opportunistic Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections with virus-specific, antigen-selected T-cells. CMV-specific T-cells will be isolated from donor leukapheresis products using the CliniMACS® Prodigy. Prior studies on transfer of CMV specific T-cells have been shown to be safe and efficacious in the treatment of CMV infections. The main trial objective is to evaluate the feasibility and safety of CMV-specific T-cell transfer in adult and pediatric participants suffering from CMV infections or reactivation following HSCT or due to other immunocompromised states (e.g.; primary immunodeficiency, cytotoxic therapy). Participants will be followed for one year.

The Effect of Methotrexate on Sperm Quality in Men With Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the gastrointestinal tract which includes Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) which peak in incidence (rate or frequency) during the reproductive years. An increasing number of young people will face challenging decisions regarding medical management of this chronic disease during a period of time when they are still completing schooling, establishing their career, and/or are building a family. Treatment options for IBD consist of immunosuppressive therapy, such as immunomodulators (azathioprine and methotrexate). Methotrexate (MTX) is a folic acid antagonist (a substance that interferes with or inhibits the action of another). It is thought that MTX works by decreasing the inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract. MTX has been studied for many years and in used as treatment in not only IBD, but also in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. However, due to concerns about the safety of MTX, particularly in regards to fertility and pregnancy has limited its current use. Participants are invited to take part in this research project to determine whether the treatment of IBD patients with MTX is associated with an increased risk for infertility. Investigators will recruit 75 male IBD patients under MTX treatment for their IBD as well as 75 healthy male controls for a total of 150 patients at the University of Wisconsin Hospital & Clinics.

A Study of Selpercatinib (LY3527723) in Participants With RET-Mutant Medullary Thyroid Cancer (LIBRETTO-531)

The reason for this study is to see if the study drug selpercatinib is safe and more effective compared to a standard treatment in participants with rearranged during transfection (RET)-mutant medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) that cannot be removed by surgery or has spread to other parts of the body. Participants who are assigned to the standard treatment and discontinue due to progressive disease have the option to potentially crossover to selpercatinib.

Immunotherapy (Nivolumab or Brentuximab Vedotin) Plus Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Stage III-IV Classic Hodgkin Lymphoma

This phase III trial compares immunotherapy drugs (nivolumab or brentuximab vedotin) when given with combination chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage III or IV classic Hodgkin lymphoma. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Brentuximab vedotin is a monoclonal antibody, brentuximab, linked to a toxic agent called vedotin. Brentuximab attaches to cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers vedotin to kill them. Chemotherapy drugs, such as doxorubicin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine, 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. The addition of nivolumab or brentuximab vedotin to combination chemotherapy may shrink the cancer or extend the time without disease symptoms coming back.

Assessing the Clinical Benefit of Molecular Profiling in Patients With Solid Tumors

Many patients are treated for advanced cancer without knowledge of underlying molecular features that might indicate FDA approved therapies or potential eligibility for biomarker-selected clinical trials. The Strata Trial (STR-001-001) has been initiated by Strata Oncology to evaluate the clinical benefit of systematic comprehensive genomic profiling for participants with advanced cancer using real-world data and endpoints, while assessing the proportion of participants available for clinical trials and approved targeted therapies in advanced and/or aggressive cancers. The Strata Trial uses surplus, or leftover, tumor specimens for molecular profiling and does not require additional study-specific procedures.

A Study to Assess Whether Etrolizumab is a Safe and Efficacious Treatment for Participants With Moderately to Severely Active Crohn's Disease (BERGAMOT)

This is a multicenter, Phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of etrolizumab compared with placebo during induction and maintenance treatment of moderately to severely active Crohn's Disease (CD). The target population includes participants with CD who are refractory or intolerant to corticosteroids (CS) and/or immunosuppressant (IS) therapy and who have either not received prior anti-tumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF) therapy (TNF-naive) or who have had prior exposure to anti-TNF therapies and demonstrated inadequate responses or intolerance to anti-TNFs. The study period will consist of a Screening Phase (up to 35 days) plus (+) a 14-week Induction Phase + a 52-week Maintenance Phase + a 12-week Safety Follow-up Phase. At Week 14 (end of Induction Phase), participants achieving a decrease from baseline of at least 70 points in the Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) score (CDAI-70 response) without the use of rescue therapy will continue to the Maintenance Phase.

Inotuzumab Ozogamicin and Post-Induction Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With High-Risk B-ALL, Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia, and B-LLy

This phase III trial studies whether inotuzumab ozogamicin added to post-induction chemotherapy for patients with High-Risk B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B-ALL) improves outcomes. This trial also studies the outcomes of patients with mixed phenotype acute leukemia (MPAL), and B-lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-LLy) when treated with ALL therapy without inotuzumab ozogamicin. Inotuzumab ozogamicin is a monoclonal antibody, called inotuzumab, linked to a type of chemotherapy called calicheamicin. Inotuzumab attaches to cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers calicheamicin to kill them. Other drugs used in the chemotherapy regimen, such as cyclophosphamide, cytarabine, dexamethasone, doxorubicin, daunorubicin, methotrexate, leucovorin, mercaptopurine, prednisone, thioguanine, vincristine, and pegaspargase 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. This trial will also study the outcomes of patients with mixed phenotype acute leukemia (MPAL) and disseminated B lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-LLy) when treated with high-risk ALL chemotherapy. The overall goal of this study is to understand if adding inotuzumab ozogamicin to standard of care chemotherapy maintains or improves outcomes in High Risk B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (HR B-ALL). The first part of the study includes the first two phases of therapy: Induction and Consolidation. This part will collect information on the leukemia, as well as the effects of the initial treatment, in order to classify patients into post-consolidation treatment groups. On the second part of this study, patients will receive the remainder of the chemotherapy cycles (interim maintenance I, delayed intensification, interim maintenance II, maintenance), with some patients randomized to receive inotuzumab. Other aims of this study include investigating whether treating both males and females with the same duration of chemotherapy maintains outcomes for males who have previously been treated for an additional year compared to girls, as well as to evaluate the best ways to help patients adhere to oral chemotherapy regimens. Finally, this study will be the first to track the outcomes of subjects with disseminated B-cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B LLy) or Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia (MPAL) when treated with B-ALL chemotherapy.

• B-ALL and MPAL patients must be enrolled on APEC14B1 and consented to eligibility studies (Part A) prior to treatment and enrollment on AALL1732. Note that central confirmation of MPAL diagnosis must occur within 7 business days after enrollment for MPAL patients. If not performed within this time frame, patients will be taken off protocol.
• APEC14B1 is not a requirement for B-LLy patients but for institutional compliance every patient should be offered participation in APEC14B1. B-LLy patients may directly enroll on AALL1732.
• White blood cell count (WBC) criteria for patients with B-ALL (within 7 days prior to the start of protocol-directed systemic therapy):
