Clobazam Adjunctive Treatment of Adults With Refractory Focal Epilepsy

Approximately 35 % of patients with epilepsy do not respond to treatment with medications. There is a need for new treatment of refractory focal epilepsy. Clobazam was approved in 2011 in the US for treatment of refractory seizures in patients with Lennox Gastaut syndrome (LGS). Patients with LGS have different ...

Phase

Ketogenic Diet in Infants With Epilepsy (KIWE)

The project proposed is a randomised controlled multicentre study of infants with epilepsy who have failed to respond to two or more pharmacological treatments (antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) or corticosteroids), comparing ketogenic diet to treatment with a further AED. Children for this study will be recruited from 8 paediatric neurology centres ...

Phase

Impact of Neuropsychological Evaluation on Epilepsy Treatment

The present study aims to expand the evidence base of neuropsychological services in the context of medical management of epilepsy, examining whether treatment outcome and patient satisfaction with medical care are significantly improved when neuropsychological evaluation is included as an additional component of medical care within a comprehensive epilepsy center. ...

Phase

Efficacy of Naloxone in Reducing Postictal Central Respiratory Dysfunction in Patients With Epilepsy

Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) primarily affects young adults with drug-resistant epilepsy, with an incidence of about 0.4%/year. The diagnosis of SUDEP requires that anamnestic data and post-mortem examination do not reveal a structural or toxicological cause for death. Generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCS) are the main risk factor for ...

Phase

Human Epilepsy Genetics--Neuronal Migration Disorders Study

Pediatric epilepsy is responsible for tremendous long-term healthcare costs. Analysis of inherited epilepsy conditions has allowed for identification of several key genes active in the developing brain. Although many genetic abnormalities of the brain are rare and lethal, rapidly advancing knowledge of the structure of the human genome makes it ...

Phase N/A

Electrical Impedance Tomography of Epilepsy

Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) is a novel medical imaging method in which tomographic images are rapidly produced using electrodes placed around the body. The principal applicant's group has demonstrated that EIT can rapidly image functional brain activity in stroke, epilepsy and normal activity in animal models and has developed instrumentation ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Ketogenic Diet on Lipoproteins in Refractory Epilepsy

Controlled clinical trial composed of children of adolescents aged 1 to 19 years with refractory epilepsy drug polytherapy (antiepileptic drugs). Children of both sexes are being included. The control group receive the diet classical ketogenic while the case group receive the ketogenic diet modified reduction of at least 20% of ...

Phase N/A

Influence of Non-invasive Neurostimulation (Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation) on 1. the Noradrenergic Release in the Brain and 2. a Neuropsychological Memory Task

First a sympathetic skin response (SSR) will be measured to investigate whether the SSR could be used as a method to measure the activity of the locus coeruleus non-invasively. There are 3 conditions: transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation sham stimulation no stimulation The conditions will be randomized. In each condition the ...

Phase N/A

A Study to Investigate Possible Drug-drug Interactions Between Stiripentol or Valproate and Cannabidiol in Patients With Epilepsy

This trial consists of 2 parts: a double-blinded phase and an open-label extension phase. The blinded phase only will be described in this record. Participants will be randomized in a 4:1 ratio to receive GWP42003-P or matching placebo. The hypothesis is that levels of stiripentol (STP) or valproate (VPA) may ...

Phase

" Virtual Brain "-Based Interpretation of Electrophysiological Signals in Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a major neurological disorder, affecting of the order of 0.5 to 1% of the population. It is a very invalidating disease, with high impact on quality of life. In a large proportion of cases, medication cannot prevent seizures; surgical removal of the regions responsible for seizures is then ...
