Risk Factors of SUDEP

Numerous studies over the past decade have shown without any doubt that there is a higher mortality risk in patients with epilepsy than in the general population. The cause of death may be related to the cause of epilepsy, being directly related to a seizure (status epilepticus or sudden unexpected ...

Phase N/A

Vagus Nerve Stimulation Clinical Outcomes Measured Prospectively in Patients Stimulated

Minimum ages eligible for the E-103 study is at least 7 years outside of the US, consistent with "Non-US" labeling and 12 years for sites in the US.

Phase N/A

Genetics of Rolandic Epilepsy

Rolandic epilepsy (RE) is the most common type of childhood epilepsy—affecting more than 50,000 children in the United States—and has a complex genetic inheritance. The seizure prognosis is relatively benign, however, many children with RE also have problems with speech and language, reading, and motor coordination. Symptoms of the disorder ...

Phase N/A

Rolandic Epilepsy/ESES/Landau-Kleffner Syndrome and Correlation With Language Impairment

This study investigates the relation between childhood epilepsy and language impairment. Functional MRI (fMRI) will be used to compare language and motor task related brain activation of children with epilepsy with healthy controls. Diffusion weighted MRI (DWI) will be used to assess differences in anatomical brain connectivity.

Phase N/A

Correlation Between SV2A Expression in Tumour Tissue and Efficacy of Levetiracetam in Glioma Patients With Epilepsy

Levetiracetam is a relatively novel anti-epileptic drug (AED), which has proven to be effective and well tolerated in many glioma patients with otherwise pharmacoresistant epilepsy. Moreover, levetiracetam has neither enzyme-inducing nor enzyme-inhibiting properties, which makes the drug particularly attractive for brain tumour patients, as they frequently receive chemotherapy and/or corticosteroids. ...

Phase

Role of Antibodies Against Glutamate Receptors and Double Stranded DNA in Epilepsy Patients

The investigators will check the serum of epilepsy patients for antibodies against glutamate receptors and double stranded DNA. They will characterise the patients (by the kind of epilepsy, autoimmune disease comorbidity, and cognitive profile).

Phase N/A

Mapping of the Epileptic Brain

This study aims improving the outcome after brain resective surgery of epileptic patients by improving presurgical evaluations. In particular the specific goal is to evaluate the ability of non invasive neuroimaging (functional magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalography) to provide presurgical maps of the functional areas of the brain and of ...

Phase N/A

Blood Sugars in Children With Idiopathic Seizures.

Convulsive disorders are among the most frequently occurring neurologic conditions in children. Idiopathic seizures are the most common (67.6%) type of seizure seen in the 0-15 year age group. The highest incidence is in the first year of life. In the United States, 5 percent of individuals experience a seizure ...

Phase N/A

Study of Specimens Obtained During Epilepsy Surgery

This is a protocol to perform research studies on tissues that are removed in the operating room during surgical procedures for drug resistant epilepsy. Our aim is to acquire and supply useful tissue specimens for intramural NIH research projects. The investigators will evaluate participants with medically intractable drug resistant epilepsy ...

Phase N/A

Rare Disease Patient Registry & Natural History Study - Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford

CoRDS collects contact, sociodemographic and health information about participants. This information is entered into CoRDS and linked to a unique coded identifier. Below are some examples of information requested on the Questionnaire that will be entered into CoRDS: Contact information: Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Email Address Sociodemographic information: Date ...
