Cognitive Effects of Vinpocetine in Healthy Adults and Patients With Epilepsy

Cognitive problems are common in patients with epilepsy, but there is currently no specific treatment available. Vinpocetine is a chemical obtained from the leaves of the Lesser Periwinkle. It has been shown to improve cerebral metabolism and memory in animals and humans. In addition, it has been shown to enhance ...

Phase

Definition of Links Between Non-invasives Methods and Intracerebral EEG With Simultaneous Recordings.

Presurgical evaluation of epileptic patients require a precise mapping of cerebral regions implied in epileptic discharges and in normal function. The current practice in most cases is to implant intracerebral electrodes in order to localize these regions in a reliable manner. However, non-invasive methods have been developed in order to ...

Phase N/A

Ketogenic Therapy Effects on Electrical and Metabolic Abnormalities in Epilepsy

The basis of Ketogenic Therapy is an altered macronutrient intake. It is based on a ratio of fat: protein+carbohydrate in which protein intake is adequate and carbohydrate is minimal. On Ketogenic Therapy, the body metabolizes fat, producing ketones as an energy source for the brain. Induction of ketosis has been ...

GWPCARE2 A Study to Investigate the Efficacy and Safety of Cannabidiol (GWP42003-P) in Children and Young Adults With Dravet Syndrome

This study is a 1:1:1 randomized, double-blind, 14-week comparison of two Dose Levels of GWP42003-P versus placebo. A 28-day screening period prior to randomization (to establish baseline parameters) will precede the treatment period, which will consist of a two-week titration period followed by a 12-week maintenance period. The study will ...

Phase

Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Effectiveness of Vagus Nerve Stimulation for Children With Refractory Epilepsy

Children with refractory epilepsy who are candidates for a treatment with vagus nerve stimulation will be prospectively randomized into 2 arms. Vagus nerve stimulation parameters are programmed and adjusted during outpatient clinic visits, within the normal clinical practice.

Phase N/A

A New Method for Delineation of Epileptic Brian Tissue During Epilepsy Surgery (The HFO Study)

Epilepsy occurs in 0.5-0.7% of the population, of which 25% are children. 30% Of patients with focal epilepsy do not respond well to medication and half of them are eligible for epilepsy surgery. In recent years, the importance of early epilepsy surgery has been stressed, as successful surgery may lead ...

Phase N/A

EEG Cap for Identification of Non-Convulsive Status Epilepticus

At the completion of neurology evaluation, if NCSE is in the differential diagnosis according to institution best practice, then consented participants will undergo placement of a large size, 20-channel EEG cap from Electro-Cap International with a Natus E-2-2520-26 electrode board adapter with initiation of recording. The placement of the EEG ...

Phase N/A

Subcutaneous EEG in Epilepsy

The problem of unrecognized seizures is common for certain types of epilepsy. Electroencephalography (EEG) is an excellent method for seizure identification and recognition, but until now, it has not been feasible to perform EEG recordings for more than a few days outside a hospital or laboratory. A novel device has ...

Phase N/A

Sleep Intervention for Pediatric Epilepsy

Sleep problems are more prevalent and serious in children with epilepsy whose sleep can be disrupted by seizures occurring during the night and/or during the day. Inadequate sleep has long been recognized as a trigger for seizure and poor sleep habits have been associated with unfavorable outcomes in children with ...

Phase N/A

Omics-based Precision Medicine of Epilepsy

Research projects: Part 1: Based on already existed large samples of epilepsy clinical cases, choose 2,0000 non-acquired epilepsy patients for clinical general phenotype and middle phenotype(EEG and MRI) data collection to further multi-dimensional standardization measure and evaluate. Through metabolic detection to define micro-phenotype. Establish a standardized clinical and biological samples ...
