Seizures clinical trials at UC Health

12 in progress, 4 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Advancing Understanding of Transportation Options

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This Stage II randomized, controlled, longitudinal trial seeks to assess the acceptability, feasibility, and effects of a driving decision aid use among geriatric patients and providers. This multi-site trial will (1) test the driving decision aid (DDA) in improving decision making and quality (knowledge, decision conflict, values concordance and behavior intent); and (2) determine its effects on specific subpopulations of older drivers (stratified for cognitive function, decisional capacity, and attitudinally readiness for a mobility transition). The overarching hypotheses are that the DDA will help older adults make high-quality decisions, which will mitigate the negative psychosocial impacts of driving reduction, and that optimal DDA use will target certain populations and settings.

  • Evaluating the Role of Inflammation in Neonatal Epileptogenesis

    open to all eligible people

    The purpose of this study evaluate the relationship between inflammation and epilepsy in neonates with seizures after birth.

  • Laser Ablation of Abnormal Neurological Tissue Using Robotic NeuroBlate System

    open to all eligible people

    The NeuroBlate® System (NBS) is a minimally invasive robotic laser thermotherapy tool that is being manufactured by Monteris Medical. Since it received FDA clearance in May 2009, the NBS has been used in over 2600 procedures conducted at over 70 leading institutions across United States. This is a prospective, multi-center registry that will include data collection up to 5 years to evaluate safety, QoL, and procedural outcomes including local control failure rate, progression free survival, overall survival, and seizure freedom in up to 1,000 patients and up to 50 sites.

  • Neonatal Seizure Registry - Developmental Functional EValuation

    open to eligible people ages 2-8

    The NSR-DEV study is a longitudinal cohort study of around 280 Neonatal Seizure Registry participants that aims to evaluate childhood outcomes after acute symptomatic neonatal seizures, as well as examine risk factors for developmental disabilities and whether these are modified by parent well-being.

  • A Study to Assess the Usability of the Embrace Seizure Detection Watch in Children and Young Adults With Dravet Syndrome

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This is a sub-study to ZX008-1503. Subjects will be fitted with an Embrace seizure detection watch and seizures detected by the watch will be compared to those entered into an electronic seizure diary.

  • A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety, and Pharmacokinetics of Lacosamide in Neonates With Repeated Electroencephalographic Neonatal Seizures

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of lacosamide (LCM) versus an Active Comparator chosen based on standard of care (StOC) in severe and nonsevere seizure burden (defined as total minutes of electroencephalographic neonatal seizures (ENS) per hour) in neonates with seizures that are not adequately controlled with previous anti-epileptic drug (AED) treatment.

  • A Trial of Two Fixed Doses of ZX008 (Fenfluramine HCl) in Children and Young Adults With Dravet Syndrome

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a multicenter, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled, study to assess the efficacy, safety, and PK of ZX008 when used as adjunctive therapy for uncontrolled seizures in pediatric and young adult subjects with Dravet syndrome. After an initial Screening and Baseline charting of seizure frequency, subjects who qualify for the study will be randomized (1:1:1) to receive either ZX008 (0.2 mg/kg/day, 0.8 mg/kg/day; maximum dose: 30 mg/day) or placebo. Randomization will be stratified by age group (< 6 years, ≥6 to 18 years). All subjects will be titrated to their randomized dose over a 14-day Titration Period. Following titration, subjects will continue treatment at their randomly assigned dose over a 12-week Maintenance Period. Subjects exiting the study will undergo a 2-week taper, unless they enroll in a follow-on study. Subjects will be followed for post-study safety monitoring. Parents/caregivers will use a diary daily to record the number/type of seizures, dosing, and use of rescue medication.

  • Cenobamate Open-Label Extension Study for YKP3089C025

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    52 Week Open-Label Safety Study of Cenobamate for Subjects who Complete YKP3089C025

  • Detecting Absence Seizures Using Eye Tracking

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The goal of this study is to develop a comfortable system that uses a wearable eye-tracker similar to eyeglasses to assist people with epilepsy in counting and measuring the severity of seizures. Participants will wear an eye-tracker during a routine EEG.

  • Human Epilepsy Project 2: Resistant Focal Seizures Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The HEP2 study is designed to better understand the challenges of living with focal seizures that do not respond to medication, by following 205 people with medication-resistant focal epilepsy over two years to measure changes in health status, healthcare costs, quality of life, and biomarkers of epilepsy severity and treatment response.

  • Roll-over Study to Collect and Assess Long-term Safety of Everolimus in Patients With TSC and Refractory Seizures Who Have Completed the EXIST-3 Study [CRAD001M2304] and Who Are Benefitting From Continued Treatment

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety in patients with TSC and refractory seizures who are currently receiving everolimus treatment in the Novartis-sponsored EXIST-3 study and who are determined to be benefiting from continued treatment as judged by the investigator at the completion of EXIST-3

  • Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Perampanel as Monotherapy or First Adjunctive Therapy in Subjects With Partial Onset Seizures With or Without Secondarily Generalized Seizures or With Primary Generalized Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study will assess the retention rate of perampanel when given as monotherapy or first adjunctive therapy in participants with partial-onset seizures or primary generalized tonic clonic seizures. The study consists of 4 periods: a Screening Period (to start no earlier than 6 weeks before the first dose of study drug), a Titration Period (up to 13 weeks), a Maintenance Period (39 weeks), and a Follow-Up Period (4 weeks).
