Patients over 18 years of age, admitted to the hospital with HF exacerbation, will be eligible for randomization to low salt or regular diet. Laboratory tests are routinely obtained on admission and on the day (or the day before) of discharge (comprehensive metabolic panel and NT-proBNP) and will be recorded for the study. Daily weights are routinely recorded, and intake/output will be monitored. At discharge, a Diet Acceptability Questionnaire will be performed. After the discharge, participants will return for follow-up visits as needed for clinical indications. Our study coordinator will document changes of symptoms, changes in therapies, and capture clinical events like unscheduled hospital visits or visits to the Emergency Room. Once during the study patients will be asked about their specific food consumption on a prior day, and the Sodium content will be estimated. The final visit will occur in a year (approximately 11-13 months after enrollment). Weight, other vital signs, CMP, BNP, and Diet Acceptability Questionnaire quality of life questionnaire will be collected at this point, if clinically indicated. The majority of study information will be collected from routine care for standard clinical indications. The only components added for study purpose are Diet Acceptability Questionnaire and collection of the information on consumed foods.

Hypertensive adults are a vulnerable population at high risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Despite the many interventions tested to reduce hypertension, it remains a major risk factor that is not appropriately managed in the population. Prior dietary interventions were successful on reduction of sodium intake, but the changes were not maintained after the end of the intervention. We propose that changing patients' salt taste preference and including family members will produce long-term changes in sodium intake and blood pressure. The Sodium Watchers Program (SWaP) proposed in this study is designed to improve adherence to a sodium restricted diet through education and self-care strategies for gradual taste adaptation to low salt foods. The purpose of this pilot is to test short-term effects of the SWaP intervention on adherence to the sodium restricted diet, blood pressure, salt taste preference, and dietary patterns in hypertensive adults. A total of 30 hypertensive adults will be randomly assigned to the intervention (n=20) or control group (n=10). The intervention group will receive 16-weeks of education and booster sessions remotely using a video conferencing program on mini-iPads. All participants will collect a 24-hour urine specimen for sodium excretion and complete assessments of blood pressure, salt taste preference testing using salt concentration solutions, and dietary pattern using VioScreen Food Frequency Questionnaire at baseline and post intervention at 4-months. Data will be analyzed using repeated measures analysis of variance.

Onabotulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) is a potent neurotoxin that has been reported to have an effect on afferent (sensory) neurons independent of its action on muscle tone and secretory glands at the periphery.In human studies, the use of BoNT-A has proven to reduce the severity and intensity of attacks in chronic tension type headaches and chronic neck pain. The PREEMPT study concluded that BoNT-A could be used as a preventive therapy in chronic migraine patients and FDA approval was obtained. According to the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), BoNT-A is recommended for the management of peripheral neuropathic pain with subcutaneous administration of 50-200 units (50-200U) to onabotulinum toxin A to the painful neuropathic area every 3 months as a third line of treatment. To our knowledge, there are no clinical trials published investigating the effect of intraoral administration of BoNT-A in continuous dentoalveolar neuropathic pain. The aim of this pilot study is to investigate the potential therapeutic effect of intraoral administration of BoNT-A in patients suffering from continuous neuropathic pain. HYPOTHESIS: There will be statistically significant differences in reported pain intensity after the intraoral administration of BOTOX® in patients suffering from chronic continuous dentoalveolar neuropathic pain. A single subject experiment will be conducted with 10 patients where 50 U of BonT-A will be injected into the painful dentoalveolar area. Eligible subjects will complete a pain diary indicating their pain intensity by means of a visual analog scale during one month to establish a baseline. After the first injection, subjects will continue to monitor the VAS daily for 3 months and the infiltration will be repeated a second time following the same protocol. Patient's response will be monitored with the daily pain diary.

The overall aim of this R34 proposal is to examine the feasibility, acceptability, and short-term outcomes associated with an innovative service delivery model to increase adherence to extended-release naltrexone (XR-NTX) during the transition from jail to the community for rural women with opioid use disorder (OUD). The significance of this study is grounded in the public health emergency associated with the opioid epidemic in rural Appalachia, the increased vulnerability of rural women with OUD, and the dearth of available and accessible evidence-based treatment in the region. This study has potential to make a significant contribution to the OUD treatment field by advancing knowledge on innovative service delivery models to increase access to evidence-based treatment to reduce the prevalence of opioid use disorders and related health disparities among hard-to-reach, high-risk, underserved populations.

This study proposes to treat metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and head/neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC) patients who are already initiating an immune checkpoint inhibitor (such as Nivolumab, Atezolizumab or Pembrolizumab) for disease treatment as per FDA approved guidelines. In these patients we will deliver a short-course radiation to a single systemic (non-CNS) site within 14 days of receiving the first dose of immune checkpoint inhibitors. This sequence allows radiation to release tumor antigens from immune inaccessible areas such as necrotic tumor or low perfusion to provide a robust anti-tumor immune response with immune checkpoint inhibitors. The primary objective is to assess six-month progression free survival (PFS) compared to historical control.

Background and justification: Nearly 29 million Americans (9.3% of the population) have type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) and another 86 million are considered prediabetic, 20-30% of whom will develop diabetes within five years.4,5 T2DM disproportionately affects those from lower socioeconomic status (SES) and rural backgrounds. Appalachian residents represent an extreme version of this already vulnerable population, with rates of diabetes 46% higher than national averages.6,7 The investigators have developed, pilot tested (N=41) and refined (N=48 in-depth interviews, 4 focus groups with 31 participants, and 2 CAB meetings with 16 members), a culturally appropriate, feasible, and promising intervention that combines diabetes self-management education and tailored patient navigation intervention., Goal: Our goal focuses on reducing HbA1c, BMI, blood pressure, lipids, and waist circumference and improving T2DM self-management and clinic attendance. Leveraging local assets, including faith communities, local health facilities, trained community health workers, and social support, the investigators will expand a promising and refined pilot study and assess outcomes, satisfaction and cost effectiveness. Innovation and impact: The proposed project is among the first RCT to combine the two most influential approaches to diabetes control-- self-management education and tailored patient navigation in a community setting. The Community to Clinic Navigation (CCN) intervention has the potential to sustainably empower hard to reach populations with effective self-management education and enhance the quality of healthcare in traditionally underserved communities, greatly improving T2DM outcomes.

The investigators are testing a two-group, randomized, controlled trial with 280 primary caregivers of adult patients with a chronic illness to test the efficacy of the Rural Intervention for Caregivers' Heart Health (RICHH). Immediate (4-month) and long-term (12-month) effects of the RICHH intervention on CVD risk factors, self-management behaviors, and depressive symptoms will be compared to usual care. The investigators also will test the moderating effect of gender on intervention outcomes, given the many differences between male and female caregivers. Specific Aim 1: To determine effects of the RICHH intervention on the primary outcomes of CVD risk factors (i.e., lipid profile, body mass index, and blood pressure) at 4 and 12 months. Hypotheses 1: The intervention group will have better lipid profile, body mass index, and blood pressure outcomes than the usual care group at 4 and 12 months. Specific Aim 2: To determine effects of the RICHH intervention on self-management behaviors (i.e., diet quality, physical activity level, and self-report adherence to specific CVD health behaviors). Hypotheses 2: The intervention group will have better diet quality, higher physical activity levels, and better adherence to specific CVD health behaviors than the usual care group at 4 and 12 months. Specific Aim 3: To determine effects of RICHH on depressive symptoms at 4 and 12 months. Hypotheses 3: Caregivers receiving the intervention will have lower levels of depressive symptoms than caregivers receiving usual care at 4 and 12 months. Specific Aim 4: To evaluate whether intervention effects on outcomes will differ by caregivers' gender. Hypotheses 4: Effects will be stronger for male compared to female caregivers at 4 and 12 months. Impact: The proposed study will have a substantial impact on caregivers' cardiovascular health and quality of life because it will provide needed CVD risk prevention, and health promotion to rural caregivers living in distressed environments where CVD risk reduction and self-management is difficult. The intervention holds the potential to produce major improvements in health among caregivers living in rural environments in the US.
