Measure of Cerebrovascular Dysfunction After TBI With fNIRS

The prospective study design will consist of two study groups; the experimental group and the control group. In the Experimental Group (Group 1) we will enroll adult participants with TBI with persistent post-concussion symptoms or abnormalities on neuropsychological testing. In Group 2 we will enroll adult participants to serve as ...

Rare Disease Patient Registry & Natural History Study - Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford

CoRDS collects contact, sociodemographic and health information about participants. This information is entered into CoRDS and linked to a unique coded identifier. Below are some examples of information requested on the Questionnaire that will be entered into CoRDS: - Contact information: Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Email Address - Sociodemographic ...

Characteristics of Blood- Brain Barrier Permeability in Neurological Patients

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most common traumatic events, occurring in approximately 200 per 100,000, and is a known risk factor for later development of epileptic seizures. This occurs in up to 17% of TBI patients, and accounts for approximately 20% of symptomatic epilepsies (Annegers, JF. et ...

Phase N/A

Non-Interventional F-Two Isoprostane Trial (NIFTI)

Each year in the United States alone, 300,000 persons are hospitalized for traumatic brain injury, with approximately one quarter dying. Despite advances in aggressive neurosurgical interventions, intensive care monitoring and overall supportive management, many of those who do "survive" do not fully recover and are left with a varying degree ...

Phase N/A

Pituitary Functions After Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (SAH)

Recent data have demonstrated that hypopituitarism seems to be a frequent finding after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and/or subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). However, most of these studies referred to retrospective evaluations. There are only few prospective data, and no longitudinal study routinely taking into account the assessment of anterior pituitary function ...

Proteomics of Severe Traumatic Brain Injury: A Feasibility Study

The purpose of this study is to: 1. Determine the temporal course of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) expression in patients wiht severe traumatic brain injury 2. Determine the temporal course of the expression of MMP-related inflammatory mediators of secondary injury in patients with severe traumatic brain injury 3. Describe the association ...

Phase N/A

Functional MRI Study of Attention in Normal Controls and Traumatic Brain Injured Patients

The purpose of this study will be to assess the attentional ability of patients with mild to moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI) using the functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) technique. Methodology for specific aim 1: sagittal pilot scan, 3-D anatomical MRI, Whole brain echo-planar imaging (EPI), and functional MRI techniques ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Explosive Blast as Compared to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder on Brain Function and Structure

Background: The clinical presentation of individuals with blast-related brain injury and post-traumatic stress reactions can be markedly similar and thus a clear description of the direct consequences of explosive blast is complicated by the emotional and cognitive sequelae of psychological trauma. The inability to clearly separate the basis of symptoms ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Proteomic Research for the Brain

The purpose of this study is to learn how the brain responds to vascular injuries such as stroke and/or to various medical or surgical treatments. The researchers will do this by examining naturally occurring proteins in the blood and urine using state-of-the-art proteomics techniques. Proteomics enables a "snapshot" of the ...
