Brief Summary:Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the pathogen responsible for the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The first reports of COVID-19 came from Wuhan, China in December of 2019. Since then, the disease has spread rapidly around the globe, accounting for thousands of deaths in multiple countries. On March 11th, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 as a pandemic. Although COVID-19 manifests primarily as a respiratory illness, several cardiovascular implications have been reported related to its natural course and treatment. Its exact effect on the cardiovascular system though is currently unknown. Therefore, we propose a retrospective, observational, case-control study looking for cardiovascular manifestations of COVID-19, including laboratory evidence of myocardial injury, electrocardiographic changes, arrhythmias and echocardiographic abnormalities. Hospitalized patients admitted with fever, cough, sore throat, and/or dyspnea who were tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 will be included in our study and will be matched based on their age and gender with patients admitted with similar symptoms who tested negative for SARS-CoV-2. The electronic medical charts of the study subjects will be reviewed and relevant demographic, clinical, laboratory and imaging findings will be deidentified and recorded. Since our study will be a retrospective chart review study it carries minimal risk for the patients and the investigators. Cardiovascular disease associated with COVID-19 might be contributing to the high mortality rates and its recognition will allow for prevention, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment. This will be the first, large, case-control study assessing cardiovascular involvement of COVID-19 in a well-defined cohort of patients.

Study Type: Observational Estimated Enrollment: 500 participants Observational Model: Case-Control Time Perspective: Retrospective Official Title: Cardiovascular Manifestations of Hospitalized Patients With Coronavirus Disease 2019 Actual Study Start Date: March 30, 2020 Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2021 Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2022

Child to Adult Neurodevelopment in Gene Expanded Huntington's Disease
Huntington's Disease (HD) is an autosomal dominant disease manifested in a triad of cognitive, psychiatric, and motor signs and symptoms. HD is caused by a triplet repeat (CAG)expansion in the gene Huntingtin (HTT).
This disease has classically been conceptualized as a neurodegenerative disease. However, recent evidence suggests that abnormal brain development may play an important role in the etiology of HD. Huntingtin (HTT)is expressed during development and through life. In animal studies, the HTT gene has been shown to be vital for brain development. This suggests that a mutant form of HTT (gene-expanded or CAG repeats of 40 and above) would affect normal brain development. In addition, studies in adults who are gene-expanded for HD, but have not yet manifested the illness, (pre-HD subjects) have significant changes in the structure of their brain, even up to 20 years before onset of clinical diagnosis. How far back these changes are evident is unknown. One possibility is that these brain changes are present throughout life, due to changes in brain development,though initially associated with only subtle functional abnormalities.
In an effort to better understand the developmental aspects of this brain disease, the current study proposes to evaluate brain structure and function in children, adolescents, and young adults (ages 6-30) who are at risk for developing HD - those who have a parent or grandparent with HD. Brain structure will be evaluating using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with quantitative measures of the entire brain, cerebral cortex, as well as white matter integrity via Diffusion Tensor Imaging. Brain function will be assessed by cognitive tests, behavioral assessment, and physical and neurologic evaluation. Subjects that are gene-expanded (GE) will be compared to subjects who are gene non-expanded (GNE). Changes in brain structure and/or function in the GE group compared to the GNE group would lend support to the notion that this disease has an important developmental component.
