This randomized phase III trial studies how well crizotinib works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been removed by surgery and has a mutation in a protein called anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Mutations, or changes, in ALK can make it very active and important for tumor cell growth and progression. Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the ALK protein from working. Crizotinib may be an effective treatment for patients with non-small cell lung cancer and an ALK fusion mutation.

The purpose of this study is to test the following hypotheses: 1. Enteral glutamine administration decreases in-hospital mortality in adult patients with severe thermal burn injuries. 2. Enteral glutamine administration decreases hospital-acquired blood stream infections from Gram negative organisms and length of stay in ICU and hospital for adult patients with severe thermal burn injuries. 3. Enteral glutamine administration will improve the physical function of surviving burn injured patients and reduce their cost of care. The objectives of this trial are to determine the overall treatment effect and safety of glutamine in burn patients. Specifically, the investigators want to assess the following outcomes in a sample of 1200 patients in 80 sites: 1. In patients with severe, life-threatening burn injury, what is the effect of enteral glutamine on time to discharge alive from hospital 2. In patients with severe, life-threatening burn injury, what is the effect of enteral glutamine on 6 month mortality, hospital-acquired blood stream infections from Gram negative organisms, hospital mortality, duration of stay in ICU and hospital, health-related quality of life, and health care resources?

This study evaluates a technology-enabled decision aid that provides evidence-based education (i.e. on understanding the condition, treatment options and comparisons, patient values and question & answer quiz) and personalized, quantifiable benefit-risk ratio alongside the level of potential benefit in relation to joint stiffness, joint pain and quality of life. The study will be performed in the setting of an integrated care system providing patient-centered care for hip and knee osteoarthritis over the full cycle of care. The impact of a technology-enabled decision aid incorporating predictive analytics with machine learning capabilities on decision quality, activation, experience & limitations of patients in this setting is relatively unknown.

In a randomized controlled clinical trial, investigators will compare the effects on [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) from two treatment regimens in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients deemed methotrexate inadequate responders (MTX-IRs). Two common RA treatments will be compared: triple therapy (sulfasalazine, methotrexate, and hydroxychloroquine) versus tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor (etanercept or adalimumab, plus background methotrexate for all subjects and hydroxychloroquine for subjects who were taking this at screening).

For the past 130 years, appendectomy has been the standard treatment for appendicitis. Recent studies from Europe have challenged the notion that surgery is the best option, showing that antibiotics alone can treat appendicitis without a need for appendectomy in as many as 3 out of 4 patients and without safety issues for up to one year of follow up. Despite these results, it remains to be determined if the antibiotic strategy is as good as an appendectomy for the outcomes that most patients care about. The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)-funded Comparison of Outcomes of Drugs and Appendectomy (CODA) trial will be the first American, and largest-ever randomized trial of the issue and its results should help surgeons and patients make more informed healthcare decisions.

This randomized phase III trial studies radiation therapy and cisplatin with triapine to see how well they work compared to the standard radiation therapy and cisplatin alone in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage IB2, II, or IIIB-IVA cervical cancer or stage II-IVA vaginal cancer. Radiation therapy uses high energy protons to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Triapine may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy and cisplatin are more effective with triapine in treating cervical or vaginal cancer.

Ventral hernias are a common disease and one half of all individuals are born with or will acquire a ventral hernia in their lifetime. Repair of ventral hernias may be associated with significant morbidity, including surgical site infection, hernia recurrence and reoperation. Minimally invasive ventral hernia repair decreases rates of surgical site infection and hospital length of stay, without affecting recurrence, however the laparoscopic approach to ventral hernia repair accounts for only about 1/3 of all total hernia repairs performed in the US. Recent large database studies have suggested that robotic ventral hernia repair may be associated with decreased hospital length of stay. However, this study is affected by common biases of database studies and randomized controlled trials are needed to assess the true impact of robotics for ventral hernia repair.
