Clinical Research Center of Nevada is enrolling volunteers in a research study for pediatric seizures.  

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 ...

Investigation of Sleep Quality and Prevalence of Sleep-disordered Breathing in Children and Young People With Epilepsy

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a condition that affects around one in 20 children. In OSA, the muscles and soft tissues in the throat relax and collapse during sleep causing the upper airway to become blocked. Breathing is briefly interrupted, blood oxygen levels fall and this causes the child to ...

Phase N/A

Diffusion Tensor and Functional Connectivity Imaging in Pediatric Epilepsy: Imaging/Histology Correlation

To determine if diffusion tensor and functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging helpful to better understand and diagnose intractable epilepsy in children. All enrolled children will undergo standard preoperative and postoperative MRI imaging, plus a 15 minute set of functional connectivity and diffusion tensor sequence with no additional sedation. This imaging ...

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

A Study of Levetiracetam as Monotherapy or Adjunctive Treatment of Partial Seizures in Pediatric Epileptic Subjects Ranging From 1 Month to Less Than 4 Years of Age

This is a study to confirm the efficacy of Levetiracetam as adjunctive treatment in pediatric epilepsy subjects aged 1 month to less than 4 years of age with partial seizures.

Phase

Clinical Utility of Pediatric Whole Exome Sequencing

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is changing the paradigm of clinical genetic testing. Unlike highly focused single-gene tests, NGS allows one to examine gene panels, the exome, and the whole genome. With the broad array of molecular tests now available, ordering physicians face the conundrum of selecting the best diagnostic tool for ...

Phase N/A

Ultra High Field MRI of Focal Pediatric Epilepsy

Abstract Epilepsy affects a significant number of children in the United States. The majority of patients achieve control of their seizures by conventional treatment strategies including medications. However, one third of patients do not achieve satisfactory seizure control with medications alone. Ketogenic diet and lifestyle modifications may also be tried. ...

Phase N/A

A Phase 2 Multicenter Randomized Double-blind Placebo-controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy Safety and Tolerability of TAK-935 (OV935) as an Adjunctive Therapy in Pediatric Patients With Developmental and/or Epileptic Encephalopathies

The drug being tested in this study is called TAK-935 (OV935). This randomized, double-blind study will assess the effects of TAK-935 (OV935), compared to placebo, on efficacy, safety, and tolerability in pediatric patients with Dravet syndrome or LGS. This multi-center trial will be conducted worldwide and will enroll approximately 126 ...

Phase

Impact of Epileptic Discharge on the Structural Connectivity of the Developing Brain

Drug-resistant focal epilepsy is a debilitating disease as it is often accompanied by learning disabilities and behavioral disorders, that can be present at the disease onset and have ample repercussions on the child's quality of life. Despite a focal onset of seizures, the dysfunction of the cerebral networks is diffuse. ...
