Purpose: About 6.4% of the U.S. population suffers from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Trauma-focused psychotherapies are generally effective in PTSD, but responses vary greatly across individuals and PTSD subpopulations. Neurobiological factors impacted by life experiences, stress, and genetics can affect treatment responses. These factors can alter brain capacities needed to reprocess traumatic memories prevent them from triggering intensely distressing, disruptive, out-of-place responses. For example, during psychotherapy for PTSD, trauma memory activation engages two competing brain processes that affect recovery: "extinction" versus "reconsolidation" of trauma-related emotional, physiological, and behavioral responses. This study tests whether a single intravenous (IV) dose of allopregnanolone (Allo) compared to placebo (which is non-active): 1. promotes consolidation of extinction learning (sub-study 1) or 2. blocks reconsolidation physiological responses triggered by aversive memories (sub-study 2). The study also tests whether Allo compared to placebo affects retention of non-aversive memories.

Unhealthy alcohol use (the spectrum from risky consumption through alcohol use disorder, AUD) is a leading cause of preventable death in the US (88,424 deaths annually costing $249 billion a year), and alcohol-related health harms (e.g. AUD itself, cirrhosis) are increasing. Despite high frequency of contacts with the medical system, most people with unhealthy alcohol use do not receive evidence-based interventions due to factors such as stigma, lack of knowledge, challenges with implementing and maintaining tool-based screening, time or prioritization constraints, and more. Electronic health records (EHRs), Best Practice Advisories (BPA) and registries are known and practical tools to improve management and care of chronic disease by aggregating information about the target population, and by assisting the clinician in reminders, decision support, and disease-specific care management. EHRs may help clinicians identify, assess, treat and monitor care when assisted by targeted staff support such as a clinical care manager (CCM) and population health manager (PHM). These support staff help to track outcomes of care and treatments, allowing for increased engagement with the population, and facilitation of care. The study team created a live database/registry of patients with unhealthy alcohol use in the BMC electronic health record (Epic), and updated Epic-based best practice advisories (BPA) and clinical decision support (CDS) (Epic Smart Set) for risky alcohol use and AUD. To improve recognition, management, and overall services provided to patients with AUD, this trial aims to test the impact of these EHR tools (the BPA, CDS, registry and registry-based reporting) for risky alcohol use and AUD by incorporating a population health manager (PHM) and clinical care manager (CCM) to augment reach and support to clinicians, and test the feasibility and effectiveness of leveraging EHRs and targeted supports to improve AUD care. A four-group randomized control trial will be implemented to determine which of four interventions is most effective at increasing rates of initiation and engagement in AUD treatment, as well as other clinical processes and outcomes. The trial will compare the use of the 1) BPA alone (only Epic-based clinician prompting and CDS), 2) BPA + PHM, 3) BPA + CCM, and 4) BPA + PHM + CCM, on the trials' primary, secondary, and exploratory outcomes. Trial results will be assessed by examining outcomes for patients on the clinician's panel.

Preferences for Services in a Patient's First Six Months on Antiretroviral Therapy for HIV in Zambia

With the advent of universal eligibility for HIV treatment ("treat all") and same-day and community-based antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation, retention in care after a patient has started ART remains the main challenge to achieving optimal outcomes in HIV treatment programs. Consistently across both time and geography, the highest risk for loss from care is during a patient's first six months after ART initiation, with about quarter of all patients not retained by the end of month 6. One of the reasons for the high attrition from care in this early retention period is that the model of care offered to most newly-initiating and re-initiating patients has barely evolved from its original outlines. Patients in their first six months on ART are generally not eligible for lower-intensity, patient-centered "differentiated service delivery" models that make remaining in care easier for experienced patients. Instead, most early patients must still make multiple clinic visits that include clinical consultations with providers, and most can receive only 1-2 month supplies of medications at a time. This protocol is for the PREFER-Zambia study, an activity of the Retain6 project. Retain6 aims to develop new models of care for patients' first six months on ART. PREFER-Zambia will collect data on patients' characteristics, clinical and non-clinical needs, and preferences for different types of services during their first six months after initiating ART. The investigators will conduct an observational, prospective cohort survey of newly-initiated or re-initiated adult ART patients at a selected set of 12 healthcare facilities in Zambia. Results are expected to inform the design of better models of service delivery for the early treatment period.

The investigators will compare the application of two different creams for the treatment of low-risk skin cancers-superficial basal cell carcinoma (sBCC) and squamous cell carcinoma in situ (SCCis). 5-Fluorouracil cream is currently FDA approved for the treatment of superficial basal cell carcinoma and is routinely used by dermatologists across the country and at Boston Medical Center (BMC) for SCCis. The normal treatment regimen is 4 weeks of the 5-fluorouracil cream for both skin cancers. The application of a compounded cream consisting of 1:1 ratio 5-fluorouracil with calcipotriene will be tested. This combination cream has been shown to clear pre-skin cancers called actinic keratoses and prevent future skin cancers from developing. This combination cream for 7-14 days to see if this shorter treatment course provides clearance of the 2 types of skin cancer. This combination cream is successfully used in this manner to treat other subtypes of related skin cancers. This will be a pilot study with The primary endpoint for this pilot randomized single blinded clinical trial will be the response to treatment (yes versus no). The lesions will be assessed clinically for clearance of cancer, as would normally be done and is consistent with how comparable studies have assessed clearance. Participants will be followed closely afterwards for three years with visits at 6 months, which does not vary from standard practice. If the lesions are not clear of cancer or equivocal clinically, the lesions will be re-biopsied and normal standard of care procedure will take place.

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a type of high blood pressure in the arteries that carry blood from the heart to the lungs. PAH occurs when the openings in the blood vessels of the lungs get smaller and smaller. These smaller openings can be caused by the following: - The walls of the arteries tightening - The walls of the arteries becoming stiff and narrow from an overgrowth of cells The increased pressure in the pulmonary arteries strains the right side of the heart and it begins to fail, causing difficulty breathing and other symptoms. As PAH progresses, symptoms get worse. There is no cure for PAH, but several medications like endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs), prostacyclin analogues (PCAs) and riociguat, a soluable guanylate cyclase stimulator, are available to help slow the progression of changes in the pulmonary arteries and help reduce symptoms. Riociguat can be taken together with ERAs and PCAs. In this study, the researchers want to learn about how well riociguat works, how safe it is when patients take it in 1 of these ways: - alone - with ERA - with PCA - with ERA and PCA The dosage for each patient will be decided by their doctor. The researchers will review information collected from the patients who have decided with their doctor to start riociguat treatment for their PAH. The study will include about 500 patients in the United States who are at least 18 years old. All of the patients will have either just started taking riociguat or will have been taking it for less than 3 months No investigational products will be administered in this study. Patients will be treated with the Standard of Care (SOC) for PAH. The SOC is the currently appropriate treatment in accordance with scientific evidence and agreed upon in collaboration between medical experts for PAH. There will be no study-mandated visits or treatments. The patients will be in the study for up to 2 years. During this time, they will visit their doctor every 3 to 6 months as part of the Standard of Care. At these visits, the patients will answer questions about their PAH symptoms and whether they have any medical problems. They will also do exercise tests to see how well they are able to breathe and how tired they get while exercising. The doctors will perform other usual examinations which are part of the Standard of Care such as echocardiograms (images of the heart to show how the heart is working) and a right heart catheters (to measure the pressures in the heart) and will take the usual blood and urine samples.

This phase II/III trial studies how well sentinel lymph node biopsy works and compares sentinel lymph node biopsy surgery to standard neck dissection as part of the treatment for early-stage oral cavity cancer. Sentinel lymph node biopsy surgery is a procedure that removes a smaller number of lymph nodes from your neck because it uses an imaging agent to see which lymph nodes are most likely to have cancer. Standard neck dissection, such as elective neck dissection, removes many of the lymph nodes in your neck. Using sentinel lymph node biopsy surgery may work better in treating patients with early-stage oral cavity cancer compared to standard elective neck dissection.
