The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the impact of treating opioid use disorder (OUD) in pregnant women with extended-release buprenorphine (BUP-XR), compared to sublingual buprenorphine (BUP-SL), on mother and infant outcomes. The primary hypothesis is that the BUP-XR group will not have greater illicit opioid use than the BUP-SL group during pregnancy (non-inferiority).

Since its launch in 2004, the overarching aim of the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) has been realized in informing the design of therapeutic trials in AD. ADNI3 continues the previously funded ADNI-1, ADNI-GO, and ADNI-2 studies that have been combined public/private collaborations between academia and industry to determine the relationships between the clinical, cognitive, imaging, genetic and biochemical biomarker characteristics of the entire spectrum of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The overall goal of the study is to continue to discover, optimize, standardize, and validate clinical trial measures and biomarkers used in AD research.

Pain has been recognized to be the most common and predictable side effect of medication abortion, causing significant distress associated with the process. Yet there is little known about the appropriate management of pain during this process, with no current evidence based recommendations for optimal analgesic regimens during the first trimester. The goal of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of oral methadone for pain control during medication abortion. The current medication regimen used to perform medication abortion is a dose of mifepristone (antiprogesterone) orally, followed by a dose of misoprostol (prostaglandin analogue) 24 to 72 hours later. Patients are prescribed a standard dose of ibuprofen 600-800mg tabs for pain control during the process. The investigators will conduct a non-randomized, pilot study with 25 patients evaluated at the Boston Medical Center family planning clinic at 10 weeks of gestation or less for medication abortion.

Reduction in appetite and/or food intake among older individuals is referred to as anorexia of aging (AOA, also known as Geriatric Anorexia). AOA is linked with myriad comorbidities associated with aging, contributes significantly to adverse health consequences in old age, and has been used as a predictor of morbidity and mortality. The overall aim of this study is to assess the feasibility and burden of the proposed in-laboratory and out-of-laboratory assessments to study Geriatric Anorexia. This will be accomplished with the use of questionnaires as well as devices that evaluate movement, metabolism, body weight composition, glucose levels, and nutritional scale.

This study aims to compare the effectiveness of two interventions to address food insecurity among low-income families with young children during the COVID pandemic. The investigators will conduct a parallel group, randomized controlled trial of 250 families. The first randomly assigned comparator is Fresh Connect, a produce prescription program that provides a stipend for participants to purchase fresh food items at mobile markets and independent farmers markets across Boston. The second comparator is grocery store gift cards, redeemable at conventional grocery stores. In each comparator, participants will be given the equivalent of $150 on a monthly basis for six consecutive months. All participants will be followed for 12 months to assess outcomes that involve food insecurity (primary), fruit and vegetable consumption, healthcare utilization, social service utilization, and physical/emotional health.

This trial studies how well paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab work in eliminating further chemotherapy after surgery in patients with HER2-positive stage II-IIIa breast cancer who have no cancer remaining at surgery (either in the breast or underarm lymph nodes) after pre-operative chemotherapy and HER2-targeted therapy. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, 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. Trastuzumab and pertuzumab are both a form of "targeted therapy" because they work by attaching themselves to specific molecules (receptors) on the surface of tumor cells, known as HER2 receptors. When these drugs attach to HER2 receptors, the signals that tell the cells to grow are blocked and the tumor cell may be marked for destruction by the body's immune system. Giving paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab may enable fewer chemotherapy drugs to be given without compromising patient outcomes compared to the usual treatment.

This study will evaluate the impact of the Common Elements Treatment Approach (CETA), an evidence-based intervention comprised of cognitive-behavioral therapy elements, at improving HIV treatment outcomes among women with HIV who have experienced intimate partner violence (IPV) and have an unsuppressed viral load on HIV treatment. To evaluate CETA, the investigators will conduct a randomized controlled trial of HIV-infected women, with or without their partners, who have experienced IPV and have an unsuppressed viral load to test the effect of CETA in increasing viral suppression and reducing violence. The investigators will also identify mediators and moderators of CETA's effect on retention and viral suppression and assess the cost and cost-effectiveness of CETA vs. active control at increasing the proportion who are retained and virally suppressed by 12 months.

This phase III trial studies how well vitamin D3 given with standard chemotherapy and bevacizumab works in treating patients with colorectal cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. Vitamin D3 helps the body use calcium and phosphorus to make strong bones and teeth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as leucovorin calcium, fluorouracil, oxaliplatin, and irinotecan hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving vitamin D3 with chemotherapy and bevacizumab may work better in shrinking or stabilizing colorectal cancer. It is not yet known whether giving high-dose vitamin D3 in addition to chemotherapy and bevacizumab would extend patients' time without disease compared to the usual approach (chemotherapy and bevacizumab).
