Belatacept Post Depletional Repopulation to Facilitate Tolerance

Acute rejection is a common problem after a kidney transplant. Rejection can occur when the kidney recipient's immune system tries to attack (or reject) the new kidney. Rejection typically most often develops in the first few months after a transplant. This single center study will seek to determine if a new combination of anti-rejection medications, including the recently FDA approved drug called Belatacept, is better than the current standard anti-rejection drug regimen at ...

Clinical Characteristics and Outcomes in Patients Diagnosed With Novel Influenza A (H1N1)

This is study where medical record information will be collected as well as collection of excess biological samples.

Reliability of Central Venous Pressure Measurements

The purpose of this study is to compare CVP measurements from CICCs and PICCs. The investigators will also evaluate whether or not the duration of CICC placement affects the differences in CVP measurements between the CICCs and PICCs. The investigators hypothesize that the differences between the CVP measurements of the CICCs and PICCs will be clinically insignificant.

Multi-Beam Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy for Node-Positive Breast Cancer

This study is being performed to understand the safety of a new radiation treatment called "Multi-Beam Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy" ( IMRT). Currently, the standard way of giving radiation is with "simplified" IMRT, which uses only 2 beams of radiation. "Multi-beam" IMRT works by using 6-12 small radiation beams to give a more "tailored" or "customized" radiation dose to the breast, chest wall, and the lymph nodes. At the same time, multi-beam IMRT may allow the dose ...
