Most tumours that start in the pituitary gland are adenomas which are non cancerous (benign). Some pituitary tumours make extra hormones that can cause symptoms. They are sometimes called neuroendocrine tumours. Very rarely, several members of the same family have a pituitary gland tumour. We know from research that there can be a gene that is abnormal in some of these families. Researchers want to study this and other genes to understand more about how these tumours develop. In this study, they will take blood samples from people who have a pituitary gland tumour, and from other family members. The aim of the study is to identify genes that play a part in the development of pituitary gland tumours. Please note - you won’t get any direct benefit from taking part in this study, nor will it affect any treatment you have. But may it help people in the future.

Rationale: Most recent insights in the treatment for patients with ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV) have demonstrated that 'tailored' maintenance treatment with rituximab (RTX) is effective to achieve durable remission of disease. As such, RTX re-treatment can be tailored on the basis of relevant immunological parameters that reflect minimal residual autoimmunity (MRA) in AAV patients. Now, the present study intends to evaluate whether combining rituximab with cyclophosphamide is superior to current standard of care with rituximab only to induce a favorable immunological state of MRA in AAV patients that can beneficially influence, i.e. reduce, the necessity of tailored re-treatment with rituximab

RATIONALE: Following stem cell transplantation, a major risk is graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). This occurs when donor immune cells that have been infused recognise the host's cells as 'foreign' and attack these cells. Prevention of GVHD relies upon depletion of donor immune T cells or drugs that block T cell function. However, these methods also increase the risk of life threatening infection. There is an important unmet need for better means of accelerating immune recovery following stem cell transplantation while avoiding GVHD. Pre-clinical studies have shown that infusion of donor CD62L- effector memory T cells (Tem) into the host improve immune recovery after allo-Stem Cell Transplant but do not cause GVHD. PURPOSE: This phase I dose escalation trial aims to determine the feasibility and safety of transfer of donor Tem following allogeneic stem cell transplantation.

One person in every 500 has Parkinson's and around 127,000 people are living with the condition in the UK. The aim of the study is to identify new genes that predispose or cause Parkinson's Disease or Parkinsonism. There is a pressing need to study the genetic makeup of family members both with and without Parkinson's. As families share a common genetic background, it is easier to find new Parkinson's genes by studying the genetic makeup of people with Parkinson's alongside other members of their families. We are particularly interested in studying the genetic makeup of two groups of people: those who developed Parkinson's before the age of 45; and those who have a family history of other relatives affected by Parkinson's. By identifying genetic factors that cause Parkinson's, we hope to understand more about the condition. Doing so will lead to the development of better diagnosis, improved disease models, and...

Brief Summary The purpose of the study is to test how well patients with advanced solid tumors respond to treatment with elimusertib (BAY1895344) in combination with pembrolizumab. In addition researchers want to find for patients the optimal dose of elimusertib in combination with pembrolizumab, how the drug is tolerated and the way the body absorbs, distributes and discharges the drug. The study medication, elimusertib, works by blocking a substance (ATR Kinase) which is produced by the body and is important for the growth of tumor cells. Pembrolizumab is an immunologic checkpoint blocker that promotes an immune response against the tumor.

Brief Summary Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is an inherited heart condition. Most people who have it are unaware of any problems relating to it. Unfortunately, a small number of people with the condition can suddenly develop a dangerous fast heart beat that can lead to death. There is no cure, but implanting a cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), which is like a pacemaker can save the life of affected individuals. However, ICD implantation has its own problems, so choosing who gets an ICD is a very important decision. The current approach for recommending people for an ICD has limitations and a better method is needed. Investigators have developed a new technique called the 'Ventricular Conduction Stability' (V-CoS). This involves wearing a special vest which records electrical signals from the heart, and then running on a treadmill. Investigators have used it to identify abnormalities in the hearts of people with (HCM) who have also survived...

Summary This research study is done to test how well different types of cancer respond to the drug called larotrectinib. The cancer must have a change in a particular gene (NTRK1, NTRK2 or NTRK3). Larotrectinib is a drug that blocks the actions of these NTRK genes in cancer cells and can therefore be used to treat cancer. The primary objective of this study is to investigate the efficacy of larotrectinib for the treatment of advanced solid tumors harboring a fusion of neurotrophic tyrosine receptor kinase (NTRK) of types 1-3 in children and adults. Secondary objectives comprise the efficacy and safety of larotrectinib in different NTRK-tumor types.

Brief Summary This study seeks to discover clinically useful tests to improve the diagnosis of a rare and serious heart muscle disease caused by mutations in a gene called 'Lamin'. Patients born with lamin gene mutations have apparently healthy hearts initially, they begin experiencing symptoms in their twenties or thirties, and by age 45 the majority have undergone a heart transplant, experienced a major cardiac complication, or have died. Sudden heart rhythm abnormalities are a major cause of sudden death so earlier diagnosis can save lives by enabling timely treatment or implantation of specialised pacemakers (defibrillators). In clinical practice, diagnosis of lamin heart disease currently relies on the genetic test. Very little is known about the detailed imaging features of the hearts of patients with lamin heart disease although advanced echocardiography and cardiac MRI now offer the opportunity to study the health of the heart without the need for radiation....

Brief Summary NorAD is a clinical trial funded by the UK National Institute of Health Research. In this trial the investigators will assess whether a long-acting preparation of guanfacine, a drug used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in children, can improve thinking (particularly attention) in Alzheimer's Disease when it is added to the standard NICE-approved drugs that are normally used in this condition. This is a randomized clinical trial designed to evaluate the efficacy of extended-release guanfacine as an add-on therapy in AD, and whether it improves cognition compared to standard cholinergic therapy alone. Detailed Description There is evidence suggesting that both noradrenaline and acetylcholine have key roles to play in attention. Guanfacine acts by increasing levels of noradrenaline, a substance in the brain which is closely linked with attention, both noradrenaline levels and attentional performance have been shown to be reduced in Alzheimer's Disease. In this study the...

Brief Summary Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (or TTP for short) is a condition where blood clots form in small blood vessels throughout the body. The clots can limit or block the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the body's organs, such as the brain, kidneys, and heart. As a result, serious health problems can develop. The increased clotting that occurs in TTP uses up the cells that help the blood to clot, called platelets. With fewer platelets available in the blood, bleeding problems can occur. People who have TTP may bleed underneath the skin forming purple bruises or purpura, or from the surface of the skin. TTP also can cause anemia, a condition in which red blood cells break apart faster than the body can replace them leading to lower than normal number of red blood cells. A lack of activity in the ADAMTS13 enzyme, a protein in the blood involved in...

Brief Summary Monitoring patients with chronic, inflammatory airways disease particularly in the early stages is hampered by the relative insensitivity of current outcome measures to detect subtle changes. Multiple breath washout is a potential sensitive test that is a useful readout of disease at these early stages but it lacks standardisation and knowledge of variability with reference to standard lung function measures. This is a Cross sectional and longitudinal observation study. The hypothesis is that multiple breath washout-derived indices will provide a robust signal of gas mixing inhomogeneity, correlating with conventional measures of airway disease severity. Multiple breath washout performed on different devices will generate indices which correlate but differ in value. Detailed Description Lung Clearance Index (LCI) has been shown to be more sensitive and perhaps more applicable in early stages of lung disease when compared to currently utilised physiological outcome measures, and yet it is not approved by...

Brief Summary To determine if carvedilol reduces the rate of variceal haemorrhage in patients with cirrhosis and small oesophageal varices Detailed Description Cirrhosis or liver scarring is an important problem in healthcare in the United Kingdom. 60,000 patients are living with this disease and about 11,000 people every year will die because of it. There are several ways in which patients with this severe form of liver disease become unwell or die and bleeding from the oesophagus or stomach is one. Cirrhosis causes pressure changes inside the abdomen and swelling of veins in the oesophagus (called "varices") which can bleed catastrophically. The investigators know that when varices are large, treatment can be initiated with medication called beta-blockers to reduce the pressure in the varices. If the varices are small, the medical community is not sure if treatment with beta-blockers will work. This study aims to address this uncertainty. Patients who...

Brief Summary Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), Cortico-Basal Degeneration (CBD) and Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) are degenerative brain conditions for which there are currently no curative treatments. To aid the development of new treatment trials, there is a pressing need to develop better methods for diagnosing these conditions early, and to track disease progression. The PROSPECT-M-UK study will collect standardised clinical data over time. Patients will also have the option to have a brain MRI scan, eye movement exam and donate blood, skin and spinal fluid samples, with the aim to identify "biomarkers" that can improve the accuracy of early diagnosis and track the natural time course of disease. Control participants and those not meeting criteria for Parkinson's disease or other defined conditions but are considered by the investigator group to be allied syndromes or at risk states (atypical parkinsonian syndromes), will also be examined. Patients can also participate via the...

Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to find out how effective the combination of crizotinib and fulvestrant is in shrinking lobular breast cancer tumours. The investigators will also be assessing the side effects of the combination of crizotinib tablets and fulvestrant injections. The side effects and the doses of crizotinib and fulvestrant have already been evaluated in large clinical trials, but this is the first time these two drugs will be combined together. Detailed Description This clinical study is looking at whether a drug called crizotinib, which is used in some patients with lung cancer, is effective in a sub-type of breast cancer, called lobular breast cancer. As the majority of lobular breast cancers are oestrogen receptor positive (ER+ve), crizotinib will be combined with a second drug, fulvestrant, to try to block tumour growth that is driven by oestrogen. Crizotinib targets cancers with genetic changes in two genes...
