A hot work environment can lead to fatigue, hyperthermia, and dehydration, which may increase injury risk and reduce productivity. The goal of this study is to learn more about the body’s response to repeated days of working in a hot and humid environment. Participation will involve 7 visits to the UB South Campus for repeated days of 8-hour periods of sitting or performing moderate-high intensity work in a hot and humid room. 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

Researchers think the study drug, EPI-7386, may be an effective treatment for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) because the drug works by interfering with the function of the male hormone system that leads to the growth of prostate cancer. Enzalutamide is an androgen receptor inhibitor that works by blocking the action of male hormones (androgens) like testosterone to slow down the growth of prostate cancer. Enzalutamide is approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and is commonly used as a standard of care option for men with advanced or metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. Since EPI-7386 and enzalutamide have not been combined together in humans, we are doing this study to find out whether EPI-7386, in combination with a fixed dose of enzalutamide, compared to standard of care enzalutamide alone, is a safe and effective treatment for men who have mCRPC. Study will be done at Spindrift Clinic location. Read More
