The primary cause of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD), a common adult-onset dystrophy, was recently discovered identifying targets for therapy. As multiple drug companies pursue treatments for FSHD, there is an urgent need to define the clinical trial strategies which will hasten drug development, including creating disease-relevant outcome measures and optimizing inclusion criteria. This proposal will develop two new outcome measures and optimize eligibility criteria by testing 160 patients in 7 sites over a period of 18 months.

This study will determine the recommend dose of palbociclib in combination with letrozole and another medication, Ado-trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1). Additionally, researchers will determine how well this recommended dose will improve outcomes in this type of advanced breast cancer. The study will include a safety lead-in with escalating dosing of palbociclib to determine the recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of palbociclib in this combination and an expanded phase II of palbociclib at the RP2D in combination with letrozole and Ado- trastuzumab Emtansine (T-DM1). The starting dose of palbociclib will be 75 milligrams (mg) by mouth (PO) daily for each 21 day cycle. If 0 of 3 patients at the 75mg dose level experience a dose limiting toxicity (DLT), the next 3 patients will be enrolled at the next higher dosing cohort of 100mg PO daily for each 21 day cycle. If 0 of 3 patients at the 100mg dose level experience a DLT, the next 3 patients will be enrolled at the next higher dosing cohort of 125mg PO daily for each 21 day cycle. If 0 of 3 patients at the 125mg dose level experience a DLT, 125mg PO daily of palbociclib will be the phase II recommended dose used in the phase II expanded cohort. Patients receiving the phase II recommended dose in phase I will be enrolled in phase II of the study. During safety lead-in and expanded phase II, Letrozole 2.5mg PO will be administered daily for each 21 day cycle and T-DM1 3.6 milligrams per kilograms intravenously (IV) will be administered on Day 1 of each 21 day cycle.

Bladder cancer is a common disease with high rates of mortality, especially at advanced stages. Neo-adjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy (NAC) followed by radical cystectomy is considered standard of care for patients with muscle invasive disease, as NAC improves surgical outcomes in these patients. However, some patients are ineligible for cisplatin-based chemotherapy due to other medical issues. Although a combination of carboplatin and gemcitabine has been used with limited success, most patients proceed directly to cystectomy without realizing the potential survival benefit afforded by NAC. Intravenous ascorbate (vitamin C) administration (IVC) has been shown to improve both carboplatin and gemcitabine-based therapy in other models. This trial will add IVC to gemcitabine/carboplatin chemotherapy to evaluate whether co-treatment will increase therapeutic efficacy.

The transition from high school to college is a developmentally sensitive period that is high risk for escalations in alcohol use. Although risky drinking is a common problem among freshmen, engagement in treatment services is very low. The proposed study will test a behavioral activation intervention that addresses factors limiting participation in standard treatment services by targeting alcohol use indirectly, by directly addressing concerns most relevant to incoming college freshmen, and by integrating an intervention into the college curriculum.

The use of simulators to retrain driving skills of patients with stroke, Parkinson's disease (PD), or multiple sclerosis (MS) is very limited because of cost, space required, and incidence of simulator sickness in high fidelity simulators. The Principal investigator recently developed a low cost low fidelity portable driving simulator (PDS). In this pilot study, the study team will (1) determine the ease of use and occurrence of simulator sickness while operating the low fidelity PDS in a clinic setting and (2) the efficacy of the low fidelity PDS to reproduce the benefits from retraining impaired driving skills of stroke survivors in a high-fidelity simulator. Participants: 30 participants, separated according to neurological condition including stroke, PD, or MS, will be randomly allocated to either the PDS or fixed-base high-fidelity simulator training. Each participant will undergo a pre-training evaluation, five hours of designated training and a post-training assessment, similar to the pre-training evaluation. Data will be analyzed according to study aims. The investigators hypothesize that the simple set up of the PDS will make it easier to use and better decrease the incidence of simulator sickness that typically leads to stopping therapy than the high-fidelity simulator. The investigators hypothesize that improvements in lane maintenance, adherence to speed limits, reaction to traffic lights, and overall reaction time after training using the PDS will not be significantly different from improvements observed after training using the high-fidelity driving simulator.
