The purpose of the study is to determine how two different blood flow restriction training programs used in conjunction with standard rehabilitation affect leg strength. By doing this study, the investigator hopes to learn if one program improves strength and function more than the other. The investigator also hope to learn how the training affects the properties of muscle in participants who will or have had anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. These results will help define how the training programs are working. There will be no charge to the participant for their physical therapy visits as long as they are part of the study The initial visit and follow up assessment at the end of the training will each take up to 6 hours (2 hours for MRI, 2 muscle biopsy, 2 for muscle strength, movement mechanics and questionaires). The physical therapy visits will range from 60-120 minutes depending on the participant's stage of recovery and the activities to engage in. Training sessions will be held 3 days a week for approximately 4 weeks before surgery and up to 24 weeks after surgery. There will be a total of 4 additional study visits over a 7 month period. The first visit will be used to capture baseline conditions of their knee and thigh muscles (muscle biopsy, MRI, strength). The second visit will occur right before surgery to assess changes during prehabilitation (strength and walking mechanics). The third visit will occur 4-5 months after surgery and will be a complete reevaluation of their thigh muscle and knee function (muscle biopsy, MRI, strength, gait). The last visit will occur 6-7 months after surgery and will involve an assessment of their thigh muscle strength, walking, and jumping form. The muscle biopsy and magnetic resonance imaging portion of the study will occur in the outpatient unit of the Center for Clinical and Translational Science at the UK Medical Center and the MRI center located on the medical center campus. The muscle biopsy will take an additional 15 minutes and the MRI up to two hours (1 hour per leg). It can take up to 4 hours total to complete both procedures. The investigator will accommodate participant preference for scheduling.

Treatment of recurrent oligometastatic prostate cancer may be enhanced by the addition of Hydroxychloroquine to the current treatment regimens. Potential benefits of Hydroxychloroquine include delayed disease progression and delayed initiation of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), thus lessening morbidity, distressing side effects, and improving functioning and quality of life in men with recurrent prostate cancer. Building on prior research at Markey, patients recently diagnosed with recurrent oligometastatic prostate cancer will be approached about participating in this study. Per standard of care, these patients undergo either surgery or radiation, in addition participants of this clinical trial will also receive Hydroxychloroquine (400 mg per day, oral medication) for 3 months. It is expected that a participant will exhibit a 50% increase of tumor suppressor PAR-4, as well as few, if any, negative side effects from Hydroxychloroquine.

Acute lung injury (ALI) and the more severe manifestation, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) describe syndromes of acute onset, bilateral, inflammatory pulmonary infiltrates and impaired oxygenation. ARDS/ALI are a continuum of disease which results in a life threatening, rapidly progressive illness and occurs in critically ill patients. Recent reports in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) highlight the significant public health impact ARDS/ALI has on the critically ill population in that despite robust research efforts, these illnesses continue to be under diagnosed, under treated, and continue to have a high mortality rate (≥ 40% of all confirmed diagnoses). The estimates for ARDS/ALI incidence vary due to inconsistencies with proper diagnosis and lack of valid biomarkers of disease; however, it is expected that anywhere from 20-50% of patients on mechanical ventilation will develop this disease. Previous work by our group has shown that sphingolipids play a multifaceted role in lung inflammation. Sphingolipid are a class of bioactive lipids that play a role in cellular processes such as apoptosis, cell migration, and adhesion. Ceramide is one species of sphingolipid the investigators have examined in both man and mouse. Our laboratory has shown that ceramide is up-regulated in pulmonary inflammation in mouse models of pneumonitis and is elevated in the exhaled breath condensate of mechanically ventilated patients at risk for ARDS/ALI. Our work coupled with the work of others highlighting a role for ceramide in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), surfactant dysfunction, and infectious disease make ceramide a logical candidate biomarker that warrants further investigation. To our knowledge, there are no studies examining the role of ceramide as a biomarker in ARDS/ALI. Thus, our overarching hypothesis is that ceramide is elevated in the lungs of patients who develop ARDS/ALI. This lipid dysregulation accounts for the pathophysiology seen in this disease and may be a potential pharmacologic target for clinical treatment. Thus the purpose of this exploratory research is to maximize existing specimens to further evaluate ceramide as a biomarker for acute lung injury.

Three pieces of information lead to the basis for this study: 1. Individuals with Type-2 diabetes commonly develop peripheral neuropathy. 2. Increased production of the hormone amylin occurs in individuals who have Type-2 diabetes. 3. Aggregations of amylin was found in the peripheral vasculature of rats that overexpressed human amylin. The purpose of this study is to determine whether a correlation exists between the amount of amylin present in the upper extremities of human subjects with Type-2 diabetes and the extent to which symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are expressed in those subjects. The investigators will be testing this by initially collecting blood and skin biopsy samples from subjects, followed by measuring patient sensation and pain responses to heat, cold, and pressure in the upper extremities.

The Corazón de la Familia study is a randomized controlled trial to examine the effects of a novel family-focused lifestyle modification intervention to reduce risk for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) among Hispanics/Latinos. Facilitated by community health workers, the family-focused intervention engages two members of a family in an educational program addressing lifestyle behaviors to support sustained engagement in healthy lifestyles among Hispanics with high risk for type 2 diabetes or CVD. In this study, we will conduct a randomized controlled trial using a 2-group design and compare the short-term and long-term impact of the family-focused active intervention to an individual-focused control condition on biological and behavioral type 2 diabetes and CVD risk factors. Furthermore, we will examine outcomes of participants in the family-focused intervention to determine how each family member's engagement in healthy lifestyle behaviors and level of support for the other family member's engagement in healthy lifestyle behaviors affects their own and their partner's outcomes.
