Neurofibromatosis Clinical Trials

A listing of Neurofibromatosis medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.

RESULTS

Found (45) clinical trials

This registry will collect information to help doctors and researchers better understand the range of medical and social problems experienced by children and adults with NF1. Volunteers will complete a 30 minute questionnaire and will be asked to update their information yearly. There are no direct benefits to the volunteers. ...

Phase

Vitamin D Supplementation for Adults With Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1)

Individuals with NF1 and vitamin D insufficiency will be supplemented with 2 different doses of cholecalciferol (vitamin D) to see if their loss of bone mineral density is lessened over time. It is important to study vitamins as carefully as one would study medications, even though vitamins are generally safer ...

Interventions for Reading Disabilities in NF1

Neurofibromitosis Type 1 (NF1) is a common autosomal dominant neurocutaneous syndrome. The most common concern of NF1 is learning disabilities (LDs). Approximately half of children with NF1 have LDs, the most common of which are reading disabilities (RDs).The purpose of this research is to gain a deeper understanding of the ...

Phase

Neurofibromatosis (NF) Registry Portal

Patients and parents of patients will be made aware of the Neurofibromatosis (NF) Registry through various non-commercial information sources such as the Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF) website, CTF-affiliated NF clinics, CTF educational and fundraising events, and other nonprofit organizations and foundations such as the National Organization for Rare Diseases (NORD) ...

Phase N/A

Trial of Selumetinib in Patients With Neurofibromatosis Type II Related Tumors

This is a Phase 2 trial to assess the hearing response rate and radiographic response of VS in children and young adults with NF2 who are treated with selumetinib. Dosing will be based on age: For patients with NF2 who are 3 to < 18 years of age, dosing will ...

Phase

Stem Cells in NF1 Patients With Tumors of the Central Nervous System

Hypothesis: Subjects with NF1 and central nervous system tumors who have aggressive lesions (including, but not limited to optic pathway gliomas) and/or those with tumors causing neurologic (including visual) morbidity will manifest unique differences in their stem cells and stem cell-derived differentiated cells compared to patients with NF1 and central ...

Phase N/A

Dexmedetomidine and Propofol for Pediatric MRI Sedation

The purpose of this study is to compare the results of combining two anesthetic medications (dexmedetomidine and propofol) in low doses with a standard dose of a single drug that is commonly used to provide sedation/anesthesia for MRI studies in young children (propofol). Recent studies and the FDA have raised ...

Phase

Resiliency Training for Adults With Neurofibromatosis Via Live Videoconferencing

The aims of this study are to compare the effect of two stress and symptom management programs tailored for patients with neurofibromatosis on quality of life and psychosocial functioning. We will also examine the degree to which treatment-dependent improvements in quality of life are mediated by improvements in depression, anxiety, ...

Phase N/A

Icotinib Study for Patients With Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) and NF2-Related Tumors

Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) is a hereditary tumor predisposition syndrome caused by mutations in the NF2 tumor suppressor gene. Individuals with NF2 have a higher likelihood to develop multiple nervous system tumors, including schwannomas, meningiomas, and ependymomas. The hallmark of NF2 is bilateral vestibular schwannomas. Historically, most NF2 patients experience ...

Targeting the Mechanisms Underlying Cutaneous Neurofibroma Formation in NF1: A Clinical Translational Approach.

Skin tumors in Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) are very common and diminish quality of life. Apart from surgery, very few treatment options exist. In comparison to other types of tumors in NF1, skin tumors receive less attention in the research world because they almost never turn into cancer. Under the ...
