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 ...

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

Cardiac Arrhythmias in Dravet Syndrome

SUMMARY Rationale People with Dravet Syndrome (DS), a rare epilepsy syndrome, have a high risk of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). Mouse models indicated that the responsible sodium channel mutation (SCN1A) not only alters cortical excitability but also increases the propensity to arrhythmias. Little is known yet about the ...

Phase N/A

Repeat Dose Safety Study of NRL-1 in Epilepsy Subjects

This is a Phase 3, repeat dose, open-label, safety study in Epilepsy subjects who have frequent breakthrough seizures or Acute Repetitive Seizures (ARS). NRL-1 will be administered as needed to treat bouts of those seizures over a 12-month period of time. Doses will be defined as 5 mg, 10 mg, ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase N/A

Repeat-Dose Pharmacokinetics Study of NRL-1 in Epilepsy Subjects

Diazepam rectal gel (Diastat) is the only formulation of diazepam indicated for the management of selected, refractory patients with epilepsy on stable regimens of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) who require intermittent use of diazepam to control bouts of increased seizure activity, i.e., Acute Repetitive Seizures (ARS). A diazepam nasal spray is ...

Phase

Evaluation of the Risk of Cognitive Deficit After Surgery of Epilepsy by Dynamic Spectral Imaging (ISD) of the Cognitive Functions in Patients Explored in StereoElectroEncephaloGraphy (SEEG)

Epilepsy affects between 0.5 and 0.7% of the European population. Despite the availability of numerous drug treatments, one third of patients still have seizures, which are associated with significant cognitive and social complications and excess mortality. In these patients, surgical treatment to remove the epileptogenic zone (EZ), the region of ...

Phase N/A

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

Electro- Hemodynamic Activity in Children: Combined Analysis by Video -EEG Spectroscopy and Near-infrared (NIRS )

Epilepsy in children is a major public health issue. It is the first neurological disease of the child. The specific incidence of epilepsy rates were highest during the first year of life, between 75,105 and 250,105 hab.an hab. year and remain high in the age group between 0 and 10 ...

Phase N/A

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.
