The purpose of this research study is to determine the number of patients affected by Fibrosing Colonapathy in people with cystic fibrosis and to learn more about what might cause it, including use of pancreatic enzyme supplements.

This study is being done to find out if the experimental drug INCB024360 is safe and has helpful effects when given to women with a certain type of ovarian cancer. Women who have elevated CA-125 (a marker in the blood used to track the disease) and no evidence of disease ("biochemical recurrent only") after achieving complete remission with first-line chemotherapy will be asked to take part. This study will measure how long women who take INCB024360 survive without disease recurrence after study treatment, compared to those that take a hormonal therapy called tamoxifen. About 110 women with biochemical recurrent only ovarian cancer will be participating at approximately 35 study centers.

Participants in this study suffer from a disease called GEPNET (Gastro-Entero-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine-Tumor), which is a group of progressive malignant tumors. These cases have arisen from the small bowel (midgut carcinoid). Physicians have determined that the tumor/s cannot be removed completely by surgery. This study includes participants who are undergoing therapy with 20-30 mg of Octreotide LAR (Long Acting Release), a drug that should slow down progression or activity of the tumor(s). However, participants' physicians have concluded, through assessing recent CT/MRI scans (Computed Tomography/Magnetic Resonance Imaging), that the drug under the current dosing regimen is not working to prevent disease progression. The aim of this study is to compare two treatments: 1. Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT). This is a new treatment being studied to determine the safety, efficacy and tolerability in patients with this type of cancer. This PRRT treatment is based on the administration of a radioactive product, Lutathera. 2. Octreotide LAR, 60 mg as an intramuscular injection. Participants in this study are currently taking this drug, but at a lower dose, which is considered to be the standard treatment. The purpose for using both treatments is the same. They are both used to try and stop the disease from getting worse and perhaps to even reduce the size of tumor(s).

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the safety and effects of Kalyedco in subjects with CF who are 6 years old and older, with at least one copy of the R117H-CFTR mutation. We will also look at how Kalyedco may affect your body and how your body breaks down and eliminates ivacaftor.

A 6-Month, Multicenter, Randomized, Open Label, Parallel-group Study Comparing the Efficacy and Safety of a New Formulation of Insulin Glargine and Lantus Injected in the Morning or Evening in Patients with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus with a 6-month Safety Extension Period
Adults with type 1 diabetes are invited to participate in a research study to compare the safety, effectiveness, & tolerability of new more concentrated form of insulin glargine with the currently marketed form known as Lantus® in adults with type 1 diabetes. There are 10 on-site study visits over an approximate 12 month period.
