RRx-001 in Lung Cancer, Ovarian Cancer and Neuroendocrine Tumors Prior to Re-administration of Platinum Based Doublet Regimens (QUADRUPLE THREAT)
This study is designed to explore the potential of the epigenetic agent RRx-001 to sensitize patients who previously received and now have failed a platinum based doublet regimen. RRx-001 is administered with autologous blood once weekly followed by or in combination with reintroduction of platinum-based doublet therapy.
Recovery of Ventilation After General Anesthesia in Morbidly Obese Patients
This is an observational study of morbidly obese patients recovering from general anesthesia after weight-loss surgery. The investigators aim to assess ventilatory function and how this is influenced by the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), baseline ventilatory status, as well as pharyngeal collapsibility of patients who are recovering from anesthesia and treated for pain with opioids. The investigators hypothesize that patients with OSA, chronic (baseline) hypoventilation and increased pharyngeal collapsibility, will be more vulnerable to opioid-induced ventilatory depression.
Randomized Study to Compare CyberKnife to Surgical Resection In Stage I Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Lung cancer remains the most frequent cause of cancer death in both men and women in the world. Surgical resection using lobectomy with mediastinal lymph node dissection or sampling has been a standard of care for operable early stage NSCLC. Several studies have reported high local control and survival using SBRT in stage I NSCLC patients. SBRT is now an accepted treatment for medically inoperable patients with stage I NSCLC and patients with operable stage I lung cancer are entered on clinical protocols. The purpose of this study is to conduct a phase III randomized study to compare CyberKnife SBRT with surgery, the current standard of care for stage I operable NSCLC.
Radiation Therapy With Cisplatin or Cetuximab in Treating Patients With Oropharyngeal Cancer
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays 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 or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as cetuximab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy is more effective with cisplatin or cetuximab in treating oropharyngeal cancer.
PURPOSE: This phase III trial is studying radiation therapy with cisplatin or cetuximab to see how well it works in treating patients with oropharyngeal cancer.
Randomized Controlled Study of Donepezil in Fragile X Syndrome
Fragile X syndrome (FraX) is the most common known heritable cause of human intellectual disability. Though recent research has revealed much about the genetic and neurobiological bases of FraX, knowledge about specific and effective treatments for affected individuals is lacking. Based on information from both human and animal studies, one cause of intellectual disability in FraX may be related to deficits in a particular brain neurotransmitter system (the "cholinergic" system). Thus, the investigators propose to use a specific medication, donepezil, to augment cholinergic system in adolescents affected by FraX. If found to be effective, the knowledge generated by this research may also be relevant to other developmental disorders that share common disease pathways with FraX.
Study of Safety and Efficacy of Pembrolizumab and Chemotherapy in Participants With Newly Diagnosed Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma (cHL) (MK-3475-C11/KEYNOTE-C11)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of pembrolizumab (MK-3475) monotherapy, followed by chemotherapy, followed by pembrolizumab consolidation. The primary hypothesis of the study is that the complete response (CR) rate at the end of study intervention according to Lugano 2014 response criteria is higher than conventional chemotherapy.

Safety of and Immune Response to an Investigational HIV-1 Vaccine With or Without Interleukin-12 (IL-12) in HIV-1 Infected Adults
Therapeutic HIV vaccines are designed to control HIV infection by boosting the body's natural immune response. There are currently no FDA-approved therapeutic HIV vaccines. This study will test whether giving an HIV-1 vaccine together with or without interleukin 12 (IL-12) is safe and effective. This study will also test a new way of giving the vaccine called electroporation (EP).
Study of Magrolimab Combinations in Participants With Myeloid Malignancies
The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety, tolerability and to determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of magrolimab (Mag) in combination with the anti-leukemia therapies of venetoclax (Ven) and azacitidine (Aza) (Cohort 1), mitoxantrone, etoposide, and cytarabine (MEC) (Cohort 2) and CC-486 (Cohort 3) respectively in participants with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), to evaluate the efficacy of magrolimab in combination with the anti-leukemia therapies as determined by the rate of complete remission (CR) (Phase 2 Cohorts 1 and 2), and/or complete remission with incomplete hematologic recovery (CRi) (CR/CRi) (Phase 2 Cohort 2) and to evaluate the efficacy of magrolimab in combination with anti-leukemia therapy CC-486 as determined by the minimal residual disease (MRD) negative CR rate (Phase 2 Cohort 3).
Specialized Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Stage II, Stage III, Stage IV, or Recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Poor Performance Status
RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of specialized radiation therapy in treating patients with stage II, stage III, stage IV, or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer and poor performance status.
Study of Fulvestrant +/- Everolimus in Post-Menopausal, Hormone-Receptor + Metastatic Breast Ca Resistant to AI
Post-menopausal women with hormone-receptor positive (HR+) metastatic breast cancer resistant to aromatase inhibitor (AI) therapy will be randomized to receive Fulvestrant (Faslodex) with Everolimus or Fulvestrant (Faslodex) with a placebo (no active ingredients).
Fulvestrant has demonstrated activity when used as first, second, or third line endocrine therapy, making it an attractive therapy for combination with other agents. In addition, it is commonly reserved for use following disease progression on AI therapy.
Everolimus is an orally administered drug that blocks a signaling pathway called "mTOR". "mTOR" acts as a regulator for many processes in the body, including cell growth. Blocking this pathway may have an effect on cell growth.
The combination of a novel class of agents (mTOR inhibitors) and an established standard treatment for metastatic HR+ breast cancer may potentially increase the clinical benefit by targeting multiple different biological pathways.

CAR-T Long Term Follow Up (LTFU) Study
Per Health Authorities guidelines for gene therapy medicinal products that utilize integrating vectors (e.g. lentiviral vectors), long term safety and efficacy follow up of treated patients is required. The purpose of this study is to monitor all patients exposed to CAR-T therapied for 15 years following their last CAR-T (e.g. CTL019) infusion to assess the risk of delayed adverse events (AEs), monitor for replication competent lentivirus (RCL) and assess long-term efficacy, including vector persistence.
Stanford's Outcomes Research in Kids
The investigators intend to investigate whether the rise in childhood obesity is caused by the loss of recurrent and chronic infections in modern, industrialized society, beginning in utero and extending through early childhood. The investigators will also examine whether the antimicrobial triclosan, present in numerous cleaning and hygiene products, decreases the incidence of infection within a household.
