This clinical trial is seeking to enroll patients with curved spines or other anatomic spinal problems. The goal of this trial is to determine whether placing a device, called iFuse-3D, into the sacrum and ilium (pelvis) bone during multilevel spine fusion (MLF) surgery provides benefits compared to not using this device. During MLF surgery, a spine surgeon places rods and screws in the spine in an attempt to straighten the spine and correct other spinal problems. The surgeon also places screws into the sacrum and pelvis bone. This may result in a decrease in pain and a restoration of the normal curvature of the spine. This is a multicenter trial with up to 35 hospitals in the US, Europe, and Australia. This study hopes to enroll 220 patients. If you participate, the study requires you to participate for two years with in-person visits between 2-6 weeks post-operation and at 6, 12 and 24 months. Read More

The goal of this study is to evaluate the safety, effectiveness and tolerability of a drug compound (AVP- 786) for the treatment of agitation associated with Alzheimer’s Disease. Alzheimer’s Disease causes loss of brain cells and problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Agitated behaviors, such as irritability and restlessness, physical and verbal aggression, and pacing and wandering are major problems in this condition, can be difficult to manage, and can impact your quality of life. AVP-786 is targeted at treating your agitation behaviors. Caregivers are being asked to take part in this research study because the participants may require assistance to complete study procedures and/or attend study visits. Participation in this study will last for approximately 20 weeks and include site visits throughout the study. Read More
