Cerebrovascular Reactivity in American Football Players

Investigators will measure cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during the chronic phase after repetitive mild traumatic brain injury (rmTBI) as a biomarker of traumatic cerebrovascular injury (TCVI). We hypothesize that CVR will be decreased in patients with rmTBI and that these decreases ...


Improving Ambulatory Community Access After Paralysis

In a surgical procedure electrodes are inserted into muscles of the lower extremities to correct hip, knee and ankle function. The electrode leads are connected to an implanted pulse generator located in the abdomen. After a typical post-operative period of two to five days, the recipient will be discharged home ...


Exercise and Rehabilitation After Traumatic Brain Injury

Exercise-based therapies can promote recovery of function and are easily implemented in the clinical rehabilitation setting. This study will determine if exercise facilitates recovery by improving markers of neuroplasticity and decreasing neuroinflammatory responses. The investigators will also determine if variations in genes involved in neuroplasticity, memory and inflammation influence the ...


Injectable Collagen Scaffold Combined With MSCs Transplantation for Brain Injury

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of injectable collagen scaffold combined with Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) transplantation in patients with brain injury.


Phase I Clinical Trial to Determine the Safety of Clonidine in Infants With HIE During Therapeutic Hypothermia.

Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) occurs in ~ 2-4/1000 term infants and is a major cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality. Resulting neurologic deficits include disabling cerebral palsy and abnormalities of speech, vision and intellect in 50-70% of surviving infants. To date, therapeutic hypothermia started within 6 h of birth is ...


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and SPECT Brain Imaging in Traumatic Brain Injury

The study is a retrospective chart review of patients with chronic neurological, emotional, social, and cognitive deficits from mild, moderate, or severe traumatic brain injury who underwent SPECT brain imaging as part of their evaluation and treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy in my practice over the last two decades. The ...


Autologous Cord Blood Cell Therapy for Neonatal Encephalopathy

This is a multicenter pilot study to evaluate the feasibility and safety of intravenous infusions of autologous (the patient's own) umbilical cord blood cells in term gestation newborns with neonatal encephalopathy (hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy). If a neonate is born with signs of moderate to severe encephalopathy and cooled for the encephalopathy, ...


Non-randomized Open-labeled Interventional Single Group Proof of Concept Study With Multi-modality Approach in Cases of Brain Death Due to Traumatic Brain Injury Having Diffuse Axonal Injury

This is the proof of concept study with multi-modality approach (using intra-thecal bioactive peptides, stem cells, laser and transcranial IV laser and Median Nerve stimulation as adjuvants) in cases of brain death due to traumatic brain injury having diffuse axonal injury to document possibility of reversal of brain death (BD).


Oxygen Toxicity of HBOT in Chronic Brain Injury

The study is a retrospective review of the author's experience treating chronic brain injury with HBOT, supplemented by cases communicated to the author, who developed untoward effects during or after their HBOT. The object of the study was to affirm or refute the author's general impression that there was an ...


Feasibility and Safety of Umbilical Cord Blood Transfusion in the Treatment of Neonatal Cerebral Ischemia and Anemia

The study is to investigate the feasibility and safety of autologous umbilical cord blood transfusion to treat the newborn infants with presence of clinical indications of neonatal hypoxic-ischemia encephalopathy (HIE) and anemia. Umbilical cord blood (UCB) is collected following labor and is transfused intravenously within 48 hours after the birth. ...
