The response to therapy with a fixed dose combination of isosorbide dinitrate and hydralazine (FDC I/H) is enhanced in African Americans with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) when compared to similar white cohorts. This study will seek to confirm the previous genetic sub-study from AHeFT which suggested a functional polymorphism of guanine nucleotide binding protein beta polypeptide 3 subunit (GNB3), C825T in exon 10, influences the therapeutic efficacy of FDC I/H. This study will initiate treatment with FDC I/H in 500 self designated African American subjects with systolic heart failure. They will be followed for up to two years on therapy. Clinical outcomes (survival, heart failure hospitalizations, and change in quality of life) on FDC I/H will be compared by GNB3 genotype subset. The hypothesis to be confirmed is that subjects homozygous for the T allele (those with the GNB3 TT genotype which is present in approximately 50% of black subjects) demonstrate enhanced therapeutic benefit from FDC I/H.

This is a longitudinal, observational study of patients with Hemophilia A or B who are planning to switch to a newly approved coagulation factor replacement product, or who have recently switched factor products. The study will follow each patient for up to 1 year. Patients will be recruited at Hemophilia Treatment Centers (HTC) which are ATHN-affiliates. The primary outcome being studied is the development of inhibitor (i.e., antibodies to factor) at 1 year or 50 exposure days, whichever comes first. The study will be conducted at approximately 30 HTCs, with a planned enrollment of 600 patients.The entire study duration is projected to be approximately 6 years. In addition, optional substudies will be included for some products, as "Product-Specific Modules". These will be questionnaires to collect data for subjects receiving selected Factor products. For example, subjects receiving Kovaltry will be approached to participate in the 'Kovaltry Product-Specific Module'; subjects receiving Adynovate will be approached to participate in the 'Adynovate Product-Specific Module'. Questions will be related to product use, perceptions of product use, and other post-marketing consumer data.

Cooking for Health Optimization with Patients (CHOP) is the first known multi-site prospective cohort study with a nested Bayesian adaptive randomized trial in the preventive cardiology field of culinary medicine. It is also the first known longitudinal study to assess the impact of hands-on cooking and nutrition education on patient outcomes, with those classes taught by medical students and other future and current medical professionals who have first been trained in those classes on how to integrate diet and lifestyle counseling of patients with their respective scopes of clinical practice. CHOP is the primary research study of the world's first known medical school based teaching kitchen, The Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University School of Medicine. Medical trainees and professionals are followed in this study long-term to understand how the classes impact their competencies in patient counseling, attitudes about the counseling, and their own diets. Patients who consent to being randomized to these classes compared to standard of care are studied within the nested Bayesian adaptive randomized trial to understand how the classes impact their health outcomes, clinical and food costs, and the costs of health systems caring for these patient populations. CHOP is designed as a pragmatic population health trial to hopefully improve healthcare effectiveness, equity, and cost by establishing an evidence-based, scalable, sustainable model of healthcare intervention targeting the social determinants of health, while complementing the pharmacological and/or surgical management of patients.

Optimizing the HIV Treatment Continuum with a Stepped Care Model for Youth Living with HIV (YLH) aims to achieve viral suppression among YLH. A cohort of 220 YLH will be identified in Los Angeles, CA and New Orleans, LA and recruited into a randomized controlled trial (RCT) with reassessments every 4 months over a 24 month follow-up period. The goal is to optimize the HIV Treatment Continuum over 24 months. YLH will be randomized into one of two study conditions: 1) Enhanced Standard Care Condition (n=110); or 2) Stepped Care (n=110). The Enhanced Standard Care condition will consist of an Automated Messaging and Monitoring Intervention (AMMI) with daily motivational, instructional and referral text messaging, and a brief weekly monitoring survey. The Stepped Care Condition will consist of three levels. Level 1 is the Enhanced Standard Care Condition. Level 2 is the Enhanced Standard Care Condition plus peer support using social media. Level 3 is the Enhanced Standard Care Condition and peer support plus coaching, which will be delivered primarily through electronic means (e.g., social media, text messaging, email, phone). All participants in the Stepped Care Condition begin at Level 1 but if they fail to have a suppressed viral load at any four-month assessment point, their intervention level will increase by one step until reaching Level 3.

Obesity increases the risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, and mortality. Obesity is a major health problem in the United States, especially in the Deep South regions. Obesity increases the risk for T2DM, the occurrence of hypertension, and mortality; but the efficacy of long-term weight loss medications has been disappointing. There are three options available for patients who want to lose weight: lifestyle modification, pills, or weight loss by bariatric surgery. When we compare the three options available, bariatric surgery is the most effective method to lose weight at present. Bariatric surgery allows patients lose the most weight, be able to sustain the weight reduction over time and, more importantly, diabetes mellitus and other cardiovascular risk factors significantly improve. Understanding the link among obesitydiabetes-hypertension is crucial in order to develop new therapeutic targets to decrease CVD morbidity and mortality. There is less prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) in premenopausal women than in men, but, once initiated, the morbidity and mortality due to CAD in women is worse than in men, thus highlighting this sex difference in CVD. Indeed, women with diabetes exhibit a higher risk of myocardial infarction and stroke mortality than men, compared to people without diabetes. In obese subjects, there is inappropriate activation of the systemic and adipose renin-angiotensin system. The prorenin receptor is a molecule expressed in various tissues including fat tissue and part of it, the soluble prorenin receptor, can be secreted into the blood. The prorenin receptor is part of a very important system that regulates blood pressure and fat in our body, the renin-angiotensin system. In this prospective observational human pilot study, we will determine whether the adipose tissue is the major supplier of soluble prorenin receptor levels in the plasma of obese patients and the relationship between blood soluble prorenin receptor and diabetes mellitus, obesity, high blood pressure and other important cardiovascular risk factors. Outcomes from this study will allow a better understanding of the complex factors that link obesity, diabetes mellitus, and other cardiovascular risk factors and designing better therapeutic alternatives to improve patient's health, particularly in obese diabetic women.
