  • COVID-19 Outcome Prediction Algorithm

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2-mediated coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an evolutionarily unprecedented natural experiment that causes major changes to the host immune system. We propose to develop a test that accurately predicts short- and long-term (within one-year) outcomes in hospitalized COVID-19 patients broadly reflecting US demographics who are at increased risk of adverse outcomes from COVID-19 using both clinical and molecular data. We will enroll patients from a hospitalized civilian population in one of the country's largest metropolitan areas and a representative National Veteran's population.

  • Identifying Modifiable PAtient Centered Therapeutics (IMPACT) Frailty

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Frailty, the decline in physical and cognitive reserves leading to vulnerability to stressors is increasingly being recognized as a public health concern. Although multiple measures exist that can identify frail patients, very little is known about how or when to intervene. Sarcopenia, or the degree of muscle wasting, is closely correlated to frailty and patient outcomes. This is a prospective cohort study of critically ill patients to identify modifiable risk factors of sarcopenia, as potential targets to reduce frailty.

  • Prevention of Frailty With Fisetin and Exercise (PROFFi) in Breast Cancer Survivors

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This phase II trial tests how well fisetin and exercise works in preventing frailty in breast cancer survivors. Fisetin is a natural substance found in strawberries and other foods and is available as a nutritional supplement. Nutritional supplements may be useful in eliminating cells that have undergone a process called senescence. Senescence is when a cell ages and permanently stops dividing but does not die. Over time, large numbers of these cells build up in tissues throughout the body and can release harmful substances that cause inflammation and damage nearby healthy cells. Giving fisetin may eliminate senescent cells in patients with breast cancer undergoing physical activity.
