Neurocognitive Targets of Hostile Interpretation Bias Training to Treat Irritability

This trial lays the foundation for a preliminary test of efficacy of IBT on irritability by establishing IBT's neurocognitive treatment targets: hostile interpretation bias and response in the neural threat-learning system. The design will test whether active relative to sham IBT shifts the indifference point towards more benign judgments. Neural response to active versus sham IBT will be measured in half the sample.

Hostile interpretation bias may be a feature of severe, chronic irritability in children, one of the most common psychiatric symptoms of childhood. Interpretation bias training (IBT) is a computer-based training program that may reduce irritability in youths. This trial lays the groundwork for a test IBT on irritability. This trial lays the foundation for a preliminary test of efficacy of IBT on irritability by establishing IBT's neurocognitive treatment targets: hostile interpretation bias and response in the neural threat-learning system. The design is a single-blinded, randomized controlled trial of IBT on its targets. The study will have four arms, with 25 participants in each arm for all four conditions of training (active versus sham) and scanning (in MRI or out of MRI scanner). During IBT, participants judge as happy or angry facial expressions which are on a continuum between happy and angry. The point at which judgments shift from predominantly happy to angry on this continuum is the indifference point. During training feedback encourages no change in the indifference point or a change in the indifference point towards more happy judgments of ambiguous faces. A shift in indifference point towards more benign judgments is interpreted as a reduction in hostile interpretation. The design will test whether active relative to sham IBT shifts the indifference point towards more benign judgments. Neural response to active versus sham IBT will be measured in half the sample.

CU Faces of Hope-Genetics of Craniofacial and Dental Development Research Study

This study plans to collect samples to create a database of patients with various syndromes that affect the way bones of the face are formed, termed “craniofacial”. These samples will support a new research program, named CU Faces of Hope, which involves a team of researchers and doctors who will work together toward a goal of better understanding facial development and gain knowledge about your specific syndrome. Samples, such as blood, DNA, and cells, will be stored for future approved research. The reason for collecting both health information and blood/tooth samples from the same person is to look at relationships between physical symptoms, behavior, genes, and parts of the blood. We are also asking parents and siblings of people with these various craniofacial associated syndromes to join the study. Having information available from family members can help researchers look at differences between people who have a syndrome and those who do not.

A PHASE 3, RANDOMIZED, OBSERVER-BLIND, PLACEBO-CONTROLLED, GROUP-SEQUENTIAL STUDY TO DETERMINE THE IMMUNOGENICITY AND SAFETY OF A RESPIRATORY SYNCYTIAL VIRUS (RSV) F NANOPARTICLE VACCINE WITH ALUMINUM IN HEALTHY THIRD-TRIMESTER PREGNANT WOMEN; AND SAFETY AND EFFICACY OF MATERNALLY TRANSFERRED ANTIBODIES IN PREVENTING RSV DISEASE IN THEIR INFANTS

The primary objective of this study is:  To determine the efficacy of maternal immunization with the RSV F vaccine against medically-significant RSV lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) with EITHER hypoxemia (peripheral oxygen saturation [SpO2] < 95% at sea level or < 92% at altitudes > 1800 meters) OR tachypnea (≥ 70 bpm for infants 0 to 59 days of age or ≥ 60 bpm for infants ≥ 60 days of age) through the first 90 days of life in infants of maternal RSV F vaccinees as compared to placebo recipients. In the event that efficacy is shown through the first 90 days of life, a hierarchical sequence of hypothesis tests will be carried out to examine efficacy at 120, 150, and 180 days of life.

Effects of pubertal blockade and hormone therapy on cardiometabolic risk markers in transgender adolescents

There will be 6 study visits over about a year. They will take place over 2 days before starting testosterone and then 1 month and 12 months after starting testosterone. The first study visit will involve a blood draw, an oral glucose tolerance test (sugar drink) and answering questionnaires. The second day will involve an ultrasound of the arteries in the arm, abdominal MRI, exercise bike test and a body scan to evaluate fat and bone density. Participants will wear a sleep and activity monitor for a week after the second visit day.
