Pharyngeal Electrical Stimulation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

During the course of ALS most patients develop swallowing deficits. In this pilot study we investigate if dysphagia in ALS can be improved by Pharyngeal Electrical Stimulation (PES). PES is Communaut Europenne (CE-) certificated and has been approved for treatment of neurological, oropharyngeal dysphagia. During PES, electrical stimuli are applied ...

Blood Brain Barrier Opening in Alzheimer' Disease

Background Alzheimer's disease is the most prevalent neurodegenerative disease totalizing 33 million patients worldwide. If nothing is done to decrease the incidence of 1.8 Million patient/year, the prevalence will double in the next 20 years. Physiopathologically, the amyloid cascade remains the predominant hypothesis. It states that an imbalance between the ...

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation for Depression in Alzheimer's Disease Patient - Preliminary Research

This project will investigate the safety and efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in the treatment of depression among patients with Alzheimer's disease. tDCS causes an excitatory effect on the anode side and suppressing effect on the cathode side through sculp with very week currents (2 mA in this ...

Treatment of Negative Symptoms and Schizophrenia

The aim of this study is to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of a neuromodulation technique, tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) used as a complementary treatment on negative symptoms. 60 patients will be randomized into two groups (active tDCS vs sham tDCS) and will be assessed after the intervention, 1 and ...

Study of Two Intrathecal Doses of Autologous Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

The study is an open-label, unmasked, uncontrolled phase I and II trial to evaluate safety and efficacy of two injections of autologous mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) patients. Patients will be recruited trough a web-based registration system, open for all ALS Brazilian patients. The patients will ...

ALS Treatment Extension Study

Treatment extension study for ALS/MND patients who participated in phase 1 study CMD-2016-001, completed assessments following six 28-day cycles of treatment, and whom the Investigator considers would benefit from continued CuATSM treatment. The same safety assessments as in the CMD-2016-001 study will be conducted after each cycle of treatment and ...

Study to Assess the Safety and Effects of Autologous Adipose-Derived Stromal Cells in Patients With Alzheimer's Disease

Autologous Adipose-derived Stromal Vascular Fraction (AD-SVF) will be infused intra-venous and Intra nasal. The therapy is composed of cells derived from a patients' own adipose tissue that are isolated within approximately 1 hour and immediately delivered back to the patient.

Chronic Electrical Stimulation of Hypothalamus/Fornix in Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia for which no treatment has shown consistent efficacy to stop or slow down the disease. Recent report of enhancement of memory abilities by bilateral chronic deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the fornix in the hypothalamus suggests that neuromodulation of circuits ...

Donepezil and Brain Activity Patterns in Those at Risk For Alzheimer's Disease

HYPOTHESIS 1. Cognitively intact individuals with normal brain morphology at genetic risk for developing Alzheimer's' Disease (AD) show alterations in brain activation patterns during tasks that require memory compared to similar individuals with lower risk for developing AD. 2. Donepezil, a cholinesterase inhibitor, can normalize such brain activation patterns in ...

Phase

A Placebo-controlled Efficacy Study of IV Ceftriaxone for Refractory Psychosis

Patients will be screened over the telephone. Information will be gathered from the mental health treatment team and the patient. Most patients who come to this study have had an inadequate or insufficient improvement with clozapine. Upon arrival at the NYS Psychiatric Institute, they review and sign consent to make ...
