Institut Jerome Lejeune is conducting a study in 47 participants in order to assess the hypothesis that  alveolar hypoventilation may be due to ventilatory control disorders caused by dysautonomia, but also to a decrease in the strength of the respiratory muscles within the framework of the global muscular hypotonia described in children with Down syndrome. Patients between ages 4-16 will be included.

Institut Paoli-Calmettes is conducting an Observational study in 3000 participants in order to built a database of Institut Paoli-Calmettes patients diagnosed with thyroid cancer. These patient characteristics will be collected in order to set up prospective and retrospective studies. All the patients who come to the centre over a time frame of 10 years will be considered.

Investigators are trying to compare standard of care lung protective ventilation settings with an automated ventilator setting, called Adaptive Support Ventilation (ASV), in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). This study will compare measurements (i.e. tidal volumes, driving pressure, respiratory rate (RR), compliance, peak airway pressures, plateau pressures, PEEP) with each ventilator technique, and will measure esophageal pressures to compare transpulmonary and respiratory system mechanics.

This is a study to investigate the potential clinical benefit of trilaciclib (G1T28) in preserving the bone marrow and the immune system, and enhancing chemotherapy antitumor efficacy when administered prior to topotecan in patients previously treated for extensive-stage SCLC. The study consists of 2 parts: a limited open-label, dose-finding portion (Part 1), and a randomized double-blind portion (Part 2). Both parts include 3 study phases: Screening Phase, Treatment Phase, and Survival Follow-up Phase. The Treatment Phase begins on the day of the first dose with study treatment and completes at the Post-Treatment Visit. The open-label portion enrolled 32 patients and the randomized portion will enroll approximately 90 patients.

This study examines the aphasia treatment response among Veterans and non-Veterans living with aphasia. It seeks to identify cognitive and neural factors which are predictive of positive response to treatment targeting naming impairments in aphasia. It also examines the dose-response relationship for naming treatment. More broadly, it seeks to determine who aphasia therapy works best for, and how much aphasia therapy is sufficient to achieve a positive treatment response.
