This study is a randomized controlled double-blinded multi-center clinical trial enrolling female hip fracture patients who are 65 and older. It will compare the effects of six months of supervised exercise training combined with daily topical testosterone gel, to six months of supervised exercise and inactive gel, and to Enhanced Usual Care. One third of the participants will receive topical testosterone gel and a supervised exercise training program; one third will receive topical inactive gel and a supervised exercise training program; one third will receive a home exercise program. All participants will receive nutritional counseling, and calcium and vitamin D supplements.

Patients with a history of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and abnormal growth hormone secretion, as measured by glucagon stimulation test, will be treated with replacement growth hormone therapy for a period of 6 months. Testing of cognition, exercise, fatigue, brain activation and morphology, body composition and measurements of quality of life will be performed before and after the treatment period. Fecal sampling for characterization of the GI microbiome will occur monthly over the treatment period. Each mTBI subject will be required to enroll with an eligible control from their household that will also provide fecal samples monthly during the treatment period of their mTBI partner. GI microbiomes will be compared between mTBI patients and their household controls at baseline as well as over the treatment period.

This study is a double-blind randomized placebo-controlled trial of 1,550 high-risk women to assess whether daily treatment with pravastatin administered early in pregnancy reduces the rate of a composite outcome of preeclampsia, fetal loss and maternal death. Women with a prior history of preeclampsia with preterm delivery less than 34 weeks will be randomized to pravastatin or placebo daily until delivery. Women will have monthly study visits during pregnancy, a follow-up visit at 6 weeks postpartum and children will have follow-up visits at 2 and 5 years of age.

This randomized phase III trial studies lymph node dissection and radiation therapy to see how well it works compared to radiation therapy alone in treating patients with breast cancer previously treated with chemotherapy and surgery. Lymph node dissection may remove cancer cells that have spread to nearby lymph nodes in patients with breast cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays or protons to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known if radiation therapy works better alone or with lymph node dissection in treating patients with breast cancer previously treated with chemotherapy and surgery.

The goal of the Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity Consortium (MoTrPAC) is to assess molecular changes that occur in response to physical activity (PA). To achieve this aim, a mechanistic randomized controlled trial (RCT) is conducted, in which adult study participants are randomized to endurance exercise (EE) training, resistance exercise (RE) training, or no exercise Control for a period of approximately 12 weeks. The overarching hypothesis is that there are discoverable molecular transducers that communicate and coordinate the effects of exercise on cells, tissues, and organs, which may initiate processes ultimately leading to the health benefits of exercise. Because this is a mechanistic trial, the main goal is not a health-related outcome. Rather, the goal is to generate a map of the molecular responses to exercise that will be used by the Consortium and by the scientific community at large to generate hypotheses for future investigations of the health benefits of PA.

This randomized phase III trial studies whether weight loss in overweight and obese women may prevent breast cancer from coming back (recurrence). Previous studies have found that women who are overweight or obese when their breast cancer is found (diagnosed) have a greater risk of their breast cancer recurring, as compared to women who were thinner when their cancer was diagnosed. This study aims to test whether overweight or obese women who take part in a weight loss program after being diagnosed with breast cancer have a lower rate of cancer recurrence as compared to women who do not take part in the weight loss program. This study will help to show whether weight loss programs should be a part of breast cancer treatment.
