Safety and Tolerability of Perampanel in Cervical Dystonia

Idiopathic cervical dystonia (CD) is the most common form of focal dystonia with a prevalence of approximately 60 cases per million population.(Nutt et al.,1988). Current oral medical treatments for CD have variable efficacy and often with marked side effects. Botulinum toxin injections may be more effective than pharmacological therapies, and ...

Phase

Clinical Study to Test the Safety of CDNF by Brain Infusion in Patients With Parkinson's Disease

A patient's participation in the study will last for ten months and will include sixteen to seventeen visits: Screening (2 visits) Planning of surgery - Surgery: implantation of drug delivery system - Post-surgery follow-up (3 visits) Test infusions with vehicle (1-2 visits) Positron emission tomography (PET) examinations before the first ...

Phase

Effect of tDCS on Cognition Symptoms in Chronic Schizophrenia Patients With Tardive Dyskinesia

This study is a randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical trial. 60 patients with TD were randomly allocated to active (n=30) or sham tDCS groups (n=30). All patients received 2-mA anodal left/cathodal right prefrontal tDCS treatment (fifteen 30-minutes sessions: Monday to Friday once daily, every other week to do a group of ...

Phase N/A

ExAblate Transcranial MRgFUS for the Management of Treatment-Refractory Movement Disorders

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and initial effectiveness of MRI-guided focused ultrasound thermal ablation of a designated area in the brain of patients suffering from movement disorder symptoms: FUS under MRI-guidance and MRI-based thermometry can be safely delivered to patients suffering from treatment-refractory movement disorders ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Trial of STN-DBS for Primary Cranial-Cervical Dystonia

In this randomised, sham-controlled trial, investigators will recruit forty patients with primary cranial-cervical dystonia to receive an implanted device for STN-DBS, and participants will be randomly assigned to receive either neurostimulation or sham stimulation for 3 months.The primary end point was the change from baseline to 3 months in the ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy and Safety of DBS in Patients With Primary Dystonia

Dystonia is an uncommon brain disorder in which there is abnormal muscle tone producing twisting, writhing movements and abnormal postures. It is associated with abnormal electrical activity in two groups of nerve cells in the brain called the globus pallidus internus (GPi) and the subthalamic nucleus (STN). GPi DBS appears ...

Phase N/A

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for the Treatment of the Tardive Dyskinesia.

The study was a parallel control design trial for 2 weeks. Patients with schizophrenia were treated with 10-Hz rTMS on left motor cortex (added to the ongoing treatment). Clinical symptoms and MEP were assessment before and after rTMS treatment.

Phase N/A

Clinical and Kinematic Assessment for Determination of Botox Injection Parameters in Cervical Dystonia

This study investigates the use of a kinematic measurement device to quantify the abnormal head movements and postures in patients with cervical dystonia (CD) in order to individualize and optimize botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) injection therapy. A single sensor captures five degrees of freedom of the neck and head ...

Phase

Effect of Increasing Motor Cortex Inhibition on Task Specific Dystonia

Dystonia is a disease where muscles in the affected body part are abnormally active. This may result in abnormal postures. The underlying mechanisms are not known. One proposed mechanism is located in the motor area of the brain that controls the coordination of muscles, called the motor cortex. It is ...

Mobile Parkinson Observatory for Worldwide Evidence-based Research (mPower)

Living with Parkinson disease means coping with symptoms that change every day. Yet these changes are not tracked frequently enough. Most people with Parkinson disease see a clinician only once or twice a year. This study measures changes in Parkinson disease symptoms in real time using an app. The app ...
