The Modified Ketogenic Diet for the Treatment of Pharmacoresistant Epilepsy in Adults

Epilepsy is a common neurological condition. Unfortunately, just over 30% of patients with epilepsy (PWE) do not become seizure free with anti-epileptic drugs. Some patients may be suitable for epilepsy surgery. Alternative established treatments include vagal nerve stimulation and the ketogenic diet in children. The evidence base for the use ...

Phase N/A

Electroencephalogram (EEG) Triggered Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) in Epilepsy Patients

A prospective exploratory study in patients with drug resistant epilepsy with a target comparison of long term outcome. NeuroScan software modules and a MagLink will be used to acquire EEG in combination with MRI/fMRI data. The MagLink system is used for obtaining integrated EEG and Event Related Potential (ERP) recordings ...

Phase N/A

Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Effectiveness of Vagus Nerve Stimulation for Children With Refractory Epilepsy

Children with refractory epilepsy who are candidates for a treatment with vagus nerve stimulation will be prospectively randomized into 2 arms. Vagus nerve stimulation parameters are programmed and adjusted during outpatient clinic visits, within the normal clinical practice.

Phase N/A

A New Method for Delineation of Epileptic Brian Tissue During Epilepsy Surgery (The HFO Study)

Epilepsy occurs in 0.5-0.7% of the population, of which 25% are children. 30% Of patients with focal epilepsy do not respond well to medication and half of them are eligible for epilepsy surgery. In recent years, the importance of early epilepsy surgery has been stressed, as successful surgery may lead ...

Phase N/A

Omics-based Precision Medicine of Epilepsy

Research projects: Part 1: Based on already existed large samples of epilepsy clinical cases, choose 2,0000 non-acquired epilepsy patients for clinical general phenotype and middle phenotype(EEG and MRI) data collection to further multi-dimensional standardization measure and evaluate. Through metabolic detection to define micro-phenotype. Establish a standardized clinical and biological samples ...

Phase N/A

Phenomenological Approach of Epilepsy in Patients With Epilepsy

Rationale: Persons with epilepsy have a greater risk of incurring accidental injury and a higher mortality risk than the general population. Study Objective : To understand life experience of the disease and risks associated with epilepsy in patients with epilepsy, relatives of patients with epilepsy and bereaved families.The results of ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Erythropoietin for Cognitive Side-effects of ECT

The trial will include patients with a diagnosis of major depression (MDD) unipolar disorder (UD) or bipolar disorder (BD) with a current moderate to severe depressive episode symptoms (a score of >17 on the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale 17-items (HRDS-17) scheduled for ECT treatment. Patients will be recruited from Psychiatric ...

Phase

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

Cerebral Autoregulation in Patients With Epilepsy

The relationship between epileptic seizures and cerebrovascular disease is complex, ranging from mechanisms to clinical manifestation. Stroke is one of the most common causes of epilepsy in adulthood. It was also reported that patients with epilepsy exhibited a higher risk of stroke. But its potential mechanism was never fully understood. ...

Phase N/A

Depression Stress and Vulnerability Factors in Drug Resistant Focal Epilepsies

Psychiatric disturbances, notably depression, occur frequently as co-morbid conditions with epilepsy. A complex, probably bidirectional relationship between epilepsy and depression has been postulated. Both epilepsy and depression also interact with stressful life events, but only some patients develop these disorders after a stressful event, indicating the possibility of a "vulnerable" ...
