The purpose of this Phase 1, multicenter, open-label study was to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of AG-636 and characterize its dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) when given by mouth to subjects with advanced lymphoma that is refractory to standard treatment. During the dose-escalation part of the study successive cohorts of subjects will be treated with increasing doses of AG-636 in order to determine its maximum tolerated dose (MTD). Subsequently, in the dose-expansion part of the study, additional subjects will be treated at the MTD in order to confirm that dose's safety, tolerability, PK and PD, and to provide an opportunity to detect anti-lymphoma activity. The dose expansion part of the study will support the selection of a dose for future clinical studies (a recommended Phase 2 dose [RP2D]).

Christopher G. Brennan-Jones et.al. identified specific strategies which have shown effectiveness in reducing workplace noise. These include implementation of stricter legislation and also stress upon the need for training in the proper use of earplugs and earmuffs so as to reduce noise exposure to safe levels.

Daniel G. Whitney et.al. conducted a study to determine prevalence of major noncommunicable diseases in young adults with pediatric-onset disabilities and compared it in adults without pediatric onset disabilities. The researchers found that young adults with pediatric onset disabilities showed an early onset of several noncommunicable diseases. They were contributors to global and national burden of disease and mortality.

This study investigates whether 1) Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) application using Super Floss can arrest and/or reverse initial interproximal caries on primary molars and 2) whether SDF applied with Super Floss is more effective in arresting or remineralizing initial interproximal lesion in comparison to SDF applied without Super Floss or fluoride varnish applied alone.

This is the first study where BAY1163877 is given to humans. Impact of the study is to evaluate if patients with advanced solid cancers show advanced clinical benefit under the treatment with the pan FGFR inhibitor. Patients (all comers) will receive the study drug treatment in a dose-escalation scheme (no placebo group) to determine the safety, tolerability and maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of BAY1163877.

The present study will be a randomized trial investigating the impact of e-cigarette device type on reinforcement value and use among current smokers. Current smokers (n=100) will be randomly assigned to either a control group that does not receive an e-cigarette or one of two e-cigarette types: a customizable tank, or a pod.

The purpose of this study is to compare standard occupational therapy to a combination of conventional (standard) and robotic therapy. The Reo Go device will provide robotic therapy that gives therapists a tool that could make stroke treatment faster and better by helping patients practice more accurate arm movements with help from the device.
