RESULTS

Found (45) clinical trials

The Department of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Winthrop-University Hospital is conducting a study of an investigational vaccine for meningococcal disease type B (MnB). There are different types of meningococcal disease. Four of the five most common types, A, C, W-135 and Y currently have a vaccine, but there is no ...

Phase

Did you know? Meningococcal germs are the common causes of serious blood infections and meningitis (serious brain infection), which could lead to brain damage, hearing loss, and learning disabilities. The SHINE study was created to find out how a new vaccine for meningococcal disease will work for children, adolescents, and ...

Phase N/A

Aseptic Meningoencephalitis in Slovenia

The main objective of this study is: to establish etiology of acute aseptic meningitis/meningoencephalitis in Slovenia to assess the clinical course and outcome of tick-borne encephalitis and Lyme neuroborreliosis to characterize the inflammatory proteins, gene polymorphisms, and transcriptome profiles in patients with tick-borne encephalitis and Lyme neuroborreliosis

Phase N/A

Neonatal Bacterial Meningitis Cohort

In this study, we aimed to develop a clinical risk score model, according to the available clinical syndromes and commonly laboratory tests, for screening BM among full-term neonates in a large-scale retrospective cohort, and prospectively validated the risk score in multicenter cohort.

Phase N/A

Evaluating Raised Intracranial Pressure Using MR Elastography

The goal of this study is to evaluate the brain elasticity in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) and other forms of raised intracranial pressure, such as obstructive hydrocephalus. Investigators will evaluate for a correlation between brain stiffness and opening pressure on lumbar puncture. Investigators will also evaluate for changes ...

Phase N/A

Treatment With Tamoxifen in Cryptococcal Meningitis

A randomized, open-label trial with 2 parallel arms: standard antifungal therapy versus tamoxifen augmented antifungal therapy during the first 2 weeks (induction phase) of treatment. The study will recruit in two sites in Ho Chi Minh City: the Hospital for Tropical Diseases (HTD), and Cho Ray Hospital (CRH). 25 patients ...

Leukotriene A4 Hydrolase Stratified Trial of Adjunctive Corticosteroids for HIV-uninfected Adults With Tuberculous Meningitis

There is a longstanding hypothesis that death from TBM results from an excessive intracerebral inflammatory response. The corollary of this hypothesis has been that adjunctive anti-inflammatory treatment with corticosteroids (e.g. dexamethasone) improves survival, which has been demonstrated in predominantly HIV-uninfected individuals in a small number of trials. Yet how corticosteroids ...

Pharmacokinetics of Understudied Drugs Administered to Children Per Standard of Care

The purpose of this study is to characterize the PK ( Pharmacokinetics) of understudied drugs administered to children per standard of care as prescribed by their treating caregiver. This will be accomplished by the collection of biological samples during the time of drug administration per standard of care as prescribed ...

Phase N/A

Adjunction of Daptomycin for the Treatment of Pneumococcal Meningitis

Pneumococcal meningitis is an infection of the membrane that covers the brain. It is a serious infection which is currently treated with a combination of corticosteroids (dexamethasone) and 3rd generation cephalosporins. Nevertheless, complications associated with meningitis are relatively frequent and severe. Recent animal studies have shown that another antibiotic, daptomycin, ...

Ipilimumab and Nivolumab in Leptomeningeal Metastases From Melanoma

This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Researchers hope to study the effects of the combination of Nivolumab and Ipilimumab. Many cancers use specific pathways (such as PD-1/PD-L1 and CTLA-4) to evade the body's immune system. Nivolumab and ipilimumab work by blocking the PD-1/PD-L1 and CTLA-4 pathways and ...
