Incorporating Multidimensional Psychosocial Interventions Improves the Well-being of Individuals With Epilepsy

Though tremendous advances have been made in the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with epilepsy, much remains to be done when it comes to improving their psychosocial well-being. Many individuals with epilepsy have difficulty adhering to treatment, documenting their seizure types, coping with memory difficulties, dealing with stress, and suffer ...

Phase N/A

Genetics of Severe Early Onset Epilepsies

Many children with epilepsy experience seizures which respond well to treatment. A few types of epilepsy, however, are characterized by seizures which begin very early in childhood and are associated with severe intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. These conditions, known as progressive epileptic encephalopathies, are particularly severe and are often difficult ...

Phase N/A

Magnetic Seizure Therapy (MST) for Treatment Resistant Depression Schizophrenia and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Although ECT is effective against severe depression, psychosis, and OCD, it also produces significant impairments of autobiographical memory and other cognitive functions. These side effects limit the acceptability and tolerability of ECT in many patient populations. They also limit the number of treatments that can be administered in a course ...

Phase N/A

A Study of Hemodynamic Changes Using Near Infra-red Spectrometry (NIRS) in Infantile Epilepsy Spasms

This study will included 20 children presenting with epilepsy with spasms. It aims to offer these children, non invasively and without supplementary examinations, a recording of local and cerebral hemodynamic changes concomitant with an electroencephalographic recording during epileptic episodes. This will be carried out by combining optical imaging using near ...

Phase N/A

Antibodies Causing Epilepsy Syndromes: The ACES Study.

Recently new treatable causes of epilepsy have been identified. These disorders are caused by a disruption of the balance in the brain caused by inflammation. This inflammatory reaction is caused by an autologous reaction of the immune system to specific brain proteins. The body produces antibodies to specific parts of ...

Phase N/A

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

Clinical Evaluation of the Efficacity of Epilepsy Surgery in Infants and Children

The Pediatric Neurosurgery Service of the Rothschild Foundation (Paris) is the French leader center for surgery of epilepsy in infants and children. Postoperative follow-up of these children is performed during medical and neurosurgical consultations in order to assess the frequency of attacks and to reduce medication.

Phase N/A

Tumor Related Epilepsy

Objective This protocol is being performed to 1) study the natural history and disease pathogenesis in patients with tumor related epilepsy, 2) provide standard surgical treatment of brain tumors with associated seizures, 3) follow the clinical course of patients after surgical resection of brain tumors with associated seizures, such as ...

Phase N/A

Presurgical Motor Mapping With Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

This study will be an open-label feasibility study which applies nTMS to subjects with incoming epilepsy surgery and pre-surgical motor mapping. No study-related medication changes are expected -- participants will remain compliant with their regular anticonvulsant regimen throughout each study phase. All patients will have undergone a complete history and ...

Phase N/A

Surgery as a Treatment for Medically Intractable Epilepsy

Objective This protocol is being performed provide standard care therapy for patients with drug resistant epilepsy and to follow the therapeutic course of patients from pre-operative evaluation, through surgery, and post-operatively, and to collect prospective data on seizure outcomes following surgery to add to the body of knowledge in this ...
