Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for Epilepsy

Very few literatures reported the clinical use of microbiota or bacteria for brain diseases. The most effective strategy for reconstruction of gut microbiota should be fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT). This study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of FMT for epilepsy. Patients were diagnosed as epilepsy by electroencephalogram (EEG) ...

Phase

Use of Clobazam for Epilepsy and Anxiety

This study is an open label, adjunctive, proof of concept, pilot clinical trial. Pediatric patients with epilepsy and clinically significant anxiety will be recruited and if enrolled will receive active treatment, involving flexible dose titration of clobazam and will be monitored for a period of four months. The study will ...

Phase

Neuroimaging Biomarker for Seizures

Numerous Veterans and civilians have seizures, which can be epileptic or nonepileptic in nature. Epileptic seizures are caused by abnormal brain cell firing. Nonepileptic seizures appear similar to epileptic seizures, but are associated with traumatic experiences and underlying psychological stressors. Both types of seizure are common and disabling, and many ...

Phase N/A

Treating Deep Seizure Foci With Noninvasive Surface Brain Stimulation

The overall goal of this study is to open up the promising treatment of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), which has been shown to be effective against seizures in patients with surface neocortical foci, to a much larger population of patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) and other forms ...

Phase N/A

Understanding the Mechanism(s) of Action on the Modified Atkins Diet for Epilepsy: Human Brain Tissues

The purpose of this study is to better define the potential molecular and anti-inflammatory changes induced by the modified Atkins diet in the brains of patients with treatment resistant epilepsy. The investigators plan to enroll 30 subjects overall in this study to compare serologic and brain tissue specimens. At NYU, ...

Phase N/A

Phenobarbital Versus Valproate for Generalized Convulsive Status Epilepticus

After the failure of first-line diazepam treatment, patients with GCSE are randomized to receive either IV PB (standard doses, low rate) or VPA (standard). Successful treatment is considered when clinical and electroencephalographic seizure activity ceases. Adverse events following treatment and the neurological outcomes at discharge and 3 months later are ...

Phase

RCT of Efficacy of Amoxicillin Over Ampicillin on Severe Pneumonia

Severe pneumonia is a serious infection in children which requires timely intervention. Management of severe pneumonia is done by appropriate antibiotics and supportive care. WHO recommendation is to use injection ampicillin four times a day for 3-5 days and injection gentamicin once a day for 3-5 days in children with ...

Phase N/A

A Pilot Study: Focused Ultrasound Thalamotomy for the Prevention of Secondary Generalization in Focal Onset Epilepsy

This is a open-label prospective intervention study. Ten (10) adults with refractory, partial-onset epilepsy with secondary generalization and able to provide informed consent will be enrolled. In addition to the diagnosis of medically refractory epilepsy, these patients will need to meet protocol specific inclusion and exclusion criteria. These adults will ...

Phase N/A

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) in Children and Adolescents With Epilepsy and Depression

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been investigated extensively in recent years for the treatment of depression. Meta-analysis of individual patient data indicates that tDCS results in improvement in depressive symptoms, with efficacy comparable to antidepressant medications and repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), while tDCS offers advantages over other treatments, ...

Phase N/A

Prompt Diagnosis and Treatment of Subclinical Seizures After Cardiac Arrest

Acute symptomatic electroencephalographic (EEG) seizures are common in children who experience a cardiac arrest, and are associated with worse short term survival. In larger studies of critically ill children with heterogeneous acute encephalopathy etiologies, EEG seizures occur in 10-40% of monitored patients, and there is increasing evidence that high seizure ...
