Cerebral Palsy and the Study of Brain Activity During Motor Tasks

Objective Neural imaging during functional tasks has become more portable and accessible than magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) by utilizing non-invasive near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) as a means to isolate areas of brain activity by measuring blood flow dynamics and electroencephalography (EEG) to measure electrical activity on the cortical surface. Although use ...

Phase N/A

Quantifying Patient-Specific Changes in Neuromuscular Control in Cerebral Palsy

The long-term goals of this research are to quantify patient-specific changes in neuromuscular control in order to optimize treatment planning and improve mobility for individuals with cerebral palsy (CP). As a first step, the aims of this proposal are to evaluate neuromuscular control before and after one of the most ...

Phase N/A

MRI-based Biomarkers for Predicting Punctate White Matter Lesions in Neonates

As a common white matter (WM) disease in preterm neonates, punctate white matter lesion (PWML) frequently leads to the abnormalities of brain development (e.g. the motor, visual and auditory disorders), even to cerebral palsy (CP) and amblyopia during childhood. However, it is lack of certain methods in identifying the prognosis ...

Phase N/A

Cerebral Palsy Hip Outcomes Project - International Multi-centre Study

Background: Children with severe cerebral palsy (CP) are at high risk for dislocating their hips. These hips are associated with contractures and pain, which can interfere with care-giving, seating, positioning, mobility and quality of life. The primary purpose of this project (Aim 2) is to evaluate the effectiveness of different ...

Phase N/A

Outcomes of the Evans Calcaneal Lengthening Based on Bone Grafting Material

Primary Outcome Measures: Measurement on radiographs of distance between heme clips located in calcaneous bone of the foot. Within the patient's own calcaneous bone, a heme clip will be placed on each side of the osteotomy. From radiographs, the amount of collapse will be determined by measuring the distance from ...

Phase N/A

Dopamine and Motor Learning in Cerebral Palsy

Objective The broad objective of this study is to determine the relationship between variations in genes related to dopamine (DA) neurotransmission in areas of the brain associated with motor leaning (e.g. DRD1, DRD2, DRD3, COMT, DAT) and/or to activity-dependent brain plasticity (e.g. BDNF) and differences in motor learning rates and ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Database Registry Study of Scoliosis in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Bracing severe neuromuscular scoliotic curves rarely serves as definitive treatment, thus most progressive curves require surgical intervention in order to sustain or improve sitting (or ambulatory) abilities. Surgery is a demanding intervention for these patients, with variable functional gains. Controversy persists regarding indications for surgery, timing, and technique. Concerns about ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Orthopaedic Data Bank (Acute and Chronic)

All patients seen the Orthopaedic clinic will be informed of the data collection and asked to participate. If the patient is agreeable to participation, informed consent will then be obtained.

Phase N/A

Phenotype Genotype & Biomarkers in ALS and Related Disorders

This study will recruit patients with ALS, ALS-FTD, PLS, HSP, and PMA, with a focus on incident cases. Patients with both familial and sporadic forms of these diseases will be enrolled and followed longitudinally using a standardized set of evaluations. Biological samples (blood, urine, CSF) will be collected from all ...

Phase N/A

Pharmacokinetic (PK) and Pharmacodynamics (PD) Study of Ilera Specific Products

This is a prospective PK/PD study that will include patients who are currently legally consuming one of the four medical marijuana formulations (Dream, Soothe, Shine and Ease) from Ilera Healthcare as part of their standard therapy for one of the state approved serious medical conditions. Part 1 of the study ...
