Measurement of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Derived Adipocytes

The purpose of this study is to learn more about where the fat tissue in your body originates. For many years it has been thought that all fat cells come from cells that are from the fat tissue itself, but now we know it is possible that some fat cells may originally come from the bone marrow. Understanding the origin of fat cells is important because it may help to determine the health of fat cells. You are being asked to be in this research study because you are a person over the age of 18 who has had a hematopoietic stem cell transplant or has chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).

To understand if some fat cells (adipocytes) may originally come from cells in the bone marrow. Understanding the origin of fat cells is important because it may help to determine the health of fat cells and why fat that is stored in some places of your body is more unhealthy than other fat.

Pulse Reduction on Beta Blocker and Ivabradine Therapy (PROBE-IT)

The goals of this study are (1) to test the hypothesis that HR reduction is an important underlying antecedent for reverse remodeling, and (2) to identify components of the beta1-GSN responsible for reverse remodeling caused by HR reduction using ivabradine, which could allow for better drug targeting. This study will also yield hypothesis-generating data on whether ivabradine might be useful in earlier stage HFrEF patients than the current indication.

A Phase 3, Multicenter, Double-blind, Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Parallel-group Study to Investigate the Efficacy and Safety of CSL112 in Subjects with Acute Coronary Syndrome

If you agree to join the study, screening tests will be performed while you are in the hospital to assess your eligibility for the study. If you are eligible to take part in the study, you will be randomized to receive either the study drug or placebo. ?Randomized? means that you will be assigned by chance, like flipping a coin, to take the study drug (CSL112) or the placebo. You will have a 50/50 chance of receiving either CSL112 or placebo. Both the study drug and placebo will be given by intravenous (IV) infusion which means slowly pumping the drug into your body through a small tube that is inserted into a vein. The infusion will last approximately 2 hours. You will receive up to four (4) infusions of either the study drug or placebo weekly for 4 weeks; each infusion is to be given at least 5 days apart. All 4 infusions should be administered within 30 days of you receiving your first infusion. Additional study visits will occur throughout the next year to assess for any new health problems, side effects, or changes in your medical conditions. This is a double-blind study, which means you, your Study Doctor, and the study staff will not know which treatment you are getting, but your Study Doctor can find out if there is an emergency, if it is critical to know for your health, or after the study has ended and the results have been analyzed. Your participation in the study will be approximately 1 year (365 days). This includes the Screening Period (1 visit), an Active Treatment Period (which includes 4 weekly infusion visits and a follow-up visit for safety) and a Follow-Up Period (which includes 5 visits) to assess any new health problems or side effects you may have experienced since your last study visit and your overall well-being. This study will have 11 study visits, 2 of which may be conducted by telephone during the Follow-Up period.

A double-blind randomized placebo-controlled trial assessing the effects of inclisiran on clinical outcomes among people with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease

About 15,000 people will take part in this study. Half will get inclisiran injections and half will get dummy placebo) injections. A placebo is a substance that looks like a drug, but has no drug in it. This form will refer to both inclisiran and placebo as “study drug.” Which study drug you get is decided by chance and you will not know which study drug you are given. Joining the study involves 3 clinic visits in the first 5 months and then a visit every 6- months. At each visit a trained researcher will ask some questions about your health, take a blood sample, and give you an injection into your abdomen (tummy). It is expected that about 1 in 20 people administered inclisiran may notice some redness or soreness where the injection is given, but no other side effects have been found. However, at this stage, scientists cannot rule out the possibility of other side effects. You are asked to stay in the study for about 5 years.

Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Effectiveness of Using the Tendyne Mitral Valve System for the Treatment of Symptomatic Mitral Regurgitation (SUMMIT) (the "trial")

Prospective, controlled, multicenter clinical investigation of the Tendyne Mitral Valve System for the treatment of eligible subjects with symptomatic, severe mitral regurgitation Subjects will be assigned to either a surgical or a non-surgical arm, at the discretion of the local site heart team. Subjects must satisfy the trial inclusion/exclusion criteria, and be approved by the Subject Eligibility Committee (SEC), prior to inclusion in the trial. Surgical arm: Subjects whom the local site heart team determines are appropriate for mitral valve surgery will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to the Tendyne device (Treatment group) or to standard of care surgical repair or total chordal-sparing surgical replacement (Control group). Randomization will be stratified by investigational site. Non-surgical arm: Subjects whom the local site heart team determines are not appropriate for mitral valve surgery and whose valve anatomy is not suitable for transcatheter repair, will be eligible to enroll into the non-surgical arm in which all subjects will receive the Tendyne device.

Comparison of Anticoagulation with Left Atrial Appendage Closure after AF Ablation

This is a study for patients that have a heart condition in which the upper chambers of your heart beat irregularly. This condition, also known as atrial fibrillation, can cause blood clots to form in an area of your heart called the left atrial appendage (LAA). Everyone has a LAA, which is like a pouch on the top of your heart, and it developed along with the other parts of the heart before birth. If a clot forms here, it can increase your chances of having a stroke or other related problems. Because you have atrial fibrillation, it is believed that if the LAA is closed, then blood clots might not be able to form in that area. The current standard of care to prevent stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation is long-term oral anticoagulation (OAC) therapy (blood thinner medication) or, in appropriately selected patients, implant of the commercial WATCHMANTM device followed by short-term OAC therapy.
