Investigators propose to use a natural experiment design to examine the impacts of the new CPT code (99490) for chronic care management on health outcomes. The Investigators will collaborate with partners in the Louisiana Clinical Data Research Network (LaCDRN) who serve more than 90,000 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in Louisiana to examine impacts of the CMS reimbursed care coordination. Now, LaCDRN is renamed as Research Action for Health Network (REACHnet). Patient and stakeholder engagement will be planned and implemented across all phases of this natural experiment. This project will examine outcome differences created by the policy change in a natural experiment framework. The analyses will utilize the RE-AIM framework to identify the critical elements of the programs that will enhance the reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance of these strategies in the diverse LaCDRN diabetes populations.

Prevention and Treatment Continuum for Youth at HIV Risk, Acutely Infected and With Established HIV Infection
University of California, Los Angeles Human Immunodeficiency Virus
This is a strategic prospective cohort study which will measure the effects of early intensive antiretroviral therapy (ART) on the establishment and persistence of HIV-1 reservoirs and HIV-1-specific immunity in acutely /recently HIV infected youth aged 12 to 24 years as compared... expand

This is a strategic prospective cohort study which will measure the effects of early intensive antiretroviral therapy (ART) on the establishment and persistence of HIV-1 reservoirs and HIV-1-specific immunity in acutely /recently HIV infected youth aged 12 to 24 years as compared to newly diagnosed youth with established infection > 6 months. Participants with newly diagnosed acute /recent HIV-1 infection will be offered enrollment into the study with immediate initiation of ART which is the current standard of care.

A clinical trial is proposed, to clinically validate, in a US population, the diagnostic performance of a new genetic test (ThyroidPrint). It will determine the nature of thyroid nodules that have been informed as indeterminate by cytology through a fine needle aspiration (FNA). The Genetic Classifier for Indeterminate Thyroid Nodules is a test that determines the expression of a panel of 10 biomarkers (CXCR3, CCR3, CXCl10, CK19, TIMP1, CLDN1, CAR, XB130, HO-1 and CCR7). Gene expression data is analyzed through an algorithm that generates a composite score that predicts the risk of malignancy. It´s intended use is for patients with thyroid cytology as indeterminate (Bethesda III and IV, according to The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology). This test uses a fine needle aspiration (FNA) sample.

The overall objective of the proposed cluster randomized trial is to test whether implementation of protocol-based integrated care will improve CVD risk factors (glycated hemoglobin [HbA1C], systolic blood pressure [SBP], and LDL-cholesterol) over 18 months and reduce major CVD events (non-fatal stroke, non-fatal myocardial infarction, hospitalized heart failure, and CVD mortality) over 3 years among patients with type 2 diabetes and additional CVD risk factors or clinical CVD compared to usual care in community clinics in Xiamen, China.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide followed by paclitaxel with or without carboplatin work in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, paclitaxel, and carboplatin, 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. It is not yet known whether doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide is more effective when followed by paclitaxel alone or paclitaxel and carboplatin in treating triple-negative breast cancer.
