Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Epilepsy With Continuous Spikes and Waves During Sleep

Continuous Spikes and Waves during Sleep (CSWS) is a rare paediatric epileptic encephalopathy. Even if the correlation between the severity of the epilepsy and the cognitive consequences is well established, the mechanisms involved in epileptic cognitive degradation are complex and poorly understood. In CSWS, there are many arguments for the ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Early Lactate Dosage Compared to CK for Diagnosis of a Suspected Seizure

We propose to carry out a prospective, observational, monocentric study at the CHU of Clermont-Ferrand. This is a descriptive analysis of the kinetics of the Creatine kinase and Lactates rates collected at the admission of a patient consulting for strong suspicion of convulsive seizure, and at 4 hours from the ...

Phase N/A

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

Developing Criteria for Cortical Resections

The purpose of this study is to study how disease processes like tumors or epilepsy spread in the brain. During surgery small pieces of abnormal (unusual) brain tissue may be removed. We analyze these specimens using more advanced microscopic and electrophysiologic techniques than are usually applied to such tissue specimens. ...

Phase N/A

Epi-collect: Data Collection During Video EEG Monitoring and at Patient's Home

Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders characterized by propensity for spontaneous epileptic seizures. Epileptic seizures are the result of excessive and abnormal nerve cell activity in the brain. About 0.7-1% of the world population suffers from seizures. The most common treatment is based on seizure medications that enables about ...

Phase N/A

Population Pharmacokinetics of Antiepileptic in Pediatrics

Epilepsy affects about 1% of the population, with a peak incidence in childhood, and persistent seizures on antiepileptic therapy in approximately 30% of patients. Over the past two decades, many antiepileptic molecules have emerged, raising the question of their optimal use, especially in pediatrics, where pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics are different ...

Phase N/A

Risk Factors of SUDEP

Numerous studies over the past decade have shown without any doubt that there is a higher mortality risk in patients with epilepsy than in the general population. The cause of death may be related to the cause of epilepsy, being directly related to a seizure (status epilepticus or sudden unexpected ...

Phase N/A

Vagus Nerve Stimulation Clinical Outcomes Measured Prospectively in Patients Stimulated

Minimum ages eligible for the E-103 study is at least 7 years outside of the US, consistent with "Non-US" labeling and 12 years for sites in the US.

Phase N/A

Genetics of Rolandic Epilepsy

Rolandic epilepsy (RE) is the most common type of childhood epilepsy—affecting more than 50,000 children in the United States—and has a complex genetic inheritance. The seizure prognosis is relatively benign, however, many children with RE also have problems with speech and language, reading, and motor coordination. Symptoms of the disorder ...
