HOBSCOTCH (Home Based Self-management and Cognitive Training Changes lives) is a home-based self-management program to treat cognitive symptoms and improve quality of life, while minimizing the barriers of access to care. The program is based on Problem Solving Therapy (PST) and teaches problem solving strategies and compensatory mechanisms to help ...

Phase N/A

A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Adjunctive Brivaracetam Subjects (>=16 to 80 Years of Age) With Epilepsy

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of brivaracetam (BRV) compared to placebo (PBO) as adjunctive treatment in subjects (>=16 to 80 years of age) with partial seizures with or without secondary generalization despite current treatment with 1 or 2 concomitant antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and to assess ...


Does Short-Term Anti-Seizure Prophylaxis After Traumatic Brain Injury Decrease Seizure Rates?

The efficacy of anti-seizure prophylaxis in head injury patients remains controversial. Current recommendations for the use of anti-seizure prophylaxis are based upon a single institution study that has not been reproduced with other studies contradicting their conclusions. The proposed study will be a randomized prospective study at Loyola University Medical ...


Predictive Value of Biomarkers of the Alzheimer's Disease (AD) in Elderly Patients With New-onset Epilepsy

Beyond 60 years, the prevalence of epilepsy is estimated at approximately 1% and increases with age. In these patients, the etiology of epilepsy is unknown in 25% of cases, even up to 55% after 65 years. Although new-onset epilepsy in the elderly is associated with a vascular disease in 50% ...

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

Abnormal Ventilatory Response to Carbon Dioxide: a Potential Biomarker for Seizure Induced Respiratory Depression & Modification by SSRI

Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy patients (SUDEP) is devastating outcome for some patients with epilepsy. It ranks second only to stroke among neurological diseases in years of potential life lost. Patho-mechanisms of SUDEP remain not well understood, however peri-ictal respiratory dysfunction likely plays an important role in many cases. Literature ...


Cortical Excitability Assessment Using Paired Pulses

The identification of the epileptogenic zone (EZ) during pharmacoresistant focal epilepsy presurgical assessment frequently requires intracranial recordings like stereo-electroencephalography (SEEG). Cortical direct electrical stimulation (DES) is commonly used during SEEG for functional mapping or to induce seizure. However, the recording of seizures is sometimes insufficient to circumscribe the EZ and ...

Phase N/A

Noninvasive Pre-surgical Evaluation of Patients With Focal Epilepsy and Establishment of a Normative Imaging Database

Objectives The overall study objective is to compare the sensitivities and specificities of morphometric analysis techniques using structural MRI images based on pre- and postsurgical localization of epileptic foci in patients undergoing presurgical evaluation for medically refractory epilepsy. To carry out these analyses, we aim to establish an age-stratified normative ...

Phase N/A

Evaluating the Impact of a Community Health Worker Program in Neno Malawi

The objectives of the household model program are: Timely case finding through education and screening for common, treatable conditions; Linkage to care for symptomatic clients along with those qualifying through routine screening; Ongoing support and accompaniment of patients in care, including adherence support, psychosocial support, and tracking of missed patient ...
