Found (150) clinical trials

The CHAMP Study—a multisite clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health—compares the efficacy of alternative therapies for young children with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy, also known as hemiparetic cerebral palsy. Children who meet study eligibility criteria will participate at one of the three clinical sites— Roanoke, Virginia; Charlottesville, ...

The Baby Champ Study, a clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health, compares three highly promising forms of therapy for infants and toddlers who have a diagnosis of hemiparetic cerebral palsy. Children who meet study eligibility criteria will participate at one of the two clinical sites: Roanoke, Virginia, ...

Effect of Vibration on Muscle Properties Physical Activity and Balance in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a movement disorder that affects over 800,000 people in the U.S. Due to the limited mobility associated with the disorder, individuals with CP have an increased risk of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and osteoporosis, compared to the general population. Therefore, identifying treatment ...

Impact of Acute Cerebral Diseases on the Autonomous Nervous System: Progression and Correlation to Therapy and Outcome

The pupilometer determines the alteration of the pupil diameter after a defined light stimulus providing information of the autonomic nerve system. The result collecting from pupillometry is objective and more precise than the subjective-visual evaluation of the pupil and its reactivity. In this observational study data is collected from pupilometer ...

The Baby CHAMP Study (Children With Hemiparesis Arm and Movement Project)

In 2013, a systematic review of interventions for children with cerebral palsy (Novak et al, 2013) concluded that constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) produces the largest magnitude effects of any non-surgical treatment. Similarly, the first major handbook summarizing the results from more than 50 studies on CIMT conducted worldwide (Ramey, Coker-Bolt, ...

Advancing Research and Treatment for Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (ARTFL)

Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (FTLD) is the neuropathological term for a collection of rare neurodegenerative diseases that correspond to four main overlapping clinical syndromes: frontotemporal dementia (FTD), primary progressive aphasia (PPA), corticobasal degeneration syndrome (CBS) and progressive supranuclear palsy syndrome (PSPS). The goal of this study is to build a FTLD ...

Children With Hemiparesis Arm and Hand Movement Project (CHAMP Study)

What is the CHAMP Study? The CHAMP Study is a multisite clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health that is comparing the efficacy of alternative therapies for young children with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy (or hemiparetic cerebral palsy). Children who meet study eligibility criteria at one of the ...

Cerebrolysin and Neurodevelopment in Preterm Infants

There is an inverse relationship between birth weight or gestational age and risk for developmental impairment, with increasing incidence as birth weight or gestational age decreases. Serious impairment, defined as problems in body function or structure which may be temporary or permanent, is generally a more stable condition and typically ...

Profiling Children and Youth With Cerebral Palsy in Relation to Feeding and Nutrition

Coordinating health care professionals (HCPs; e.g. paediatric neurologists, physiotherapists) in different centres across different countries will be asked to participate in this cross-sectional study. for the HCP to fill out a questionnaire about their CP child, related to general subject characteristics, motor function, co-morbidities, type of therapies, anthropometry, feeding mode ...

Prospective Study of Scoliosis in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Bracing severe neuromuscular scoliotic curves rarely serves as definitive treatment, thus most progressive curves require surgical intervention in order to sustain or improve sitting (or ambulatory) abilities. Surgery is a demanding intervention for these patients, with variable functional gains. Controversy persists regarding indications for surgery, timing, and technique. Concerns about ...
