To determine the underlying etiologies in a contemporary cohort of infants with infantile spasms and to examine response to treatment.
To compare the clinical efficacy of high-dose prednisone monotherapy and the combination of hormone and moderate-dose topiramate (TPM) therapy in children with infantile spasms (IS) and late-onset epileptic spasms (ES), and to evaluate whether the addition of TPM would provide more benefits for patients.
Hypsarrhythmia is the interictal EEG pattern most often associated with infantile spasms. We set out to evaluate the metabolic impact of hypsarrhythmia among patients with infantile spasms by contrasting regional cerebral metabolic activity among children with and without hypsarrhythmia.
Epileptic spasms during infancy (infantile spasms) represent a serious treatment and social problem despite their rare occurrence. Current treatments include hormonal therapy (adrenocorticotropin-ACTH or corticosteroids) or vigabatrin (per se or in the combination). These treatments are partially effective and with potentially significant adverse effects. Thus, the search for new effective drugs is warranted. We tested efficacy of a novel fusion peptide AQB-565 developed by Aequus Biopharma in a model of in...
Infantile spasms constitute a catastrophic epileptic condition. Seizures in approximately half of children with infantile spasms fail to improve with initial treatment attempts; at present, data regarding alternative treatments are limited. We assessed the efficacy of clobazam as an adjunctive therapy in patients whose seizures failed to respond to initial regimens of standard treatment for infantile spasms. All patients from Severance Children's Hospital who received clobazam as adjunctive therapy for infa...
Although steroids are suggested as the treatment of choice for infantile spasms, the mechanism of action is still unclear. Using a rat model of malformation of cortical development with refractory infantile spasms, we evaluated the efficacy of methylprednisolone on spasms susceptibility and behaviors. Additionally, we investigated the in vivo electrophysiological and neurochemical changes of the brain after methylprednisolone treatment. Infant rats with prenatal exposure of methylazoxymethanol at gestationa...
Remote monitoring including transmission of electrocardiogram (ECG) strips has been implemented in implantable cardiac monitors (ICM). We appraise whether the physician can rely on remote monitoring to be informed of all possibly significant arrhythmias.
Infantile spasms (IS) is a developmental and epileptic encephalopathy with heterogeneous etiologies including many genetic causes. Genetic studies have identified pathogenic variants in over 30 genes as causes of IS. Many of these genetic causes are extremely rare, with only one reported incidence in an individual with IS. To better understand the genetic landscape of IS, we used targeted sequencing to screen 42 candidate IS genes and 53 established developmental and epileptic encephalopathy genes in 92 ind...
Infantile spasms (IS) and seizures with focal onset have different clinical expressions, even when electroencephalography (EEG) associated with IS has some degree of focality. Oddly, identical pathology (with, however, age-dependent expression) can lead to IS in one patient vs. focal seizures in another or even in the same, albeit older, patient. We therefore investigated whether the cellular mechanisms underlying seizure initiation are similar in the two instances: spasms vs. focal. We noted that in-common...
Corpus callosotomy (CC) has recently been adopted for the treatment of drug-resistant epileptic spasms and tonic spasms. In the present study, we investigated CC outcomes among patients with drug-resistant epileptic spasms or tonic spasms associated with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC).
Remote monitoring is an established, guideline-recommended technology with unequivocal clinical benefits; however, its ability to improve survival is contradictory.
To evaluate the medical literature on the use of β-blockers, through different routes, for the treatment of periorbital infantile hemangiomas and to summarize the recommendations available on dosage and monitoring.
Dialysis (haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis) and renal transplantation are the renal replacement treatments when the personal kidneys have been destroyed. Renal grafting is the desired treatment for most patients who arrive at the terminal stage of their chronic kidney disease. Many patients with chronic kidney disease remain in chronic dialysis until the transplantation or their death. It is important to adapt the conditions of treatment to their social life so that they are the best possible and to optim...
Remote monitoring of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators has been associated with reduced rates of all-cause rehospitalizations and mortality among device recipients, but long-term economic benefits have not been studied.
Monitoring risk of imminent aggression in inpatient forensic mental health services could be supported by passive remote monitoring technology, but staff attitudes toward the relevance and likelihood of engagement with this technology are unknown.
Early myoclonic encephalopathy (EME) is a form of developmental and epileptic encephalopathy with myoclonic seizures and a suppression burst on electroencephalogram, which occurs during the neonatal or early infantile period and is characterized by highly intractable seizures and severe development impairment. Although multiple genetic aetiologies of EME have been identified, no SCN1A mutation has been reported.
Remote monitoring has often been thought to lead to a highly structured and standardised care process. Several studies have stressed that patient-provider communication could be hindered if mediated by technologies, leading to an impoverished relationship. We argue that while remote monitoring leads to a redefinition of the patient-provider relationship, it could also offer the opportunity to develop a more intimate acquaintance not possible via only routine visits. The study is part of a clinical trial aim...
Perinatal stroke is a significant cause of severe epilepsy, including epileptic spasms. Although epileptic spasms due to underlying structural lesion often respond poorly to treatment and evolve into drug-resistant epilepsy, outcomes are not uniformly poor, and predictors of outcomes are not well described. We performed a single-institution retrospective review of epileptic spasms following perinatal stroke to determine if outcome depended on vascular subtype. We identified 24 children with epileptic spasms...
Patient nonadherence to wound care protocols may impact the efficacy of modalities, such as negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). Recently, a remote therapy monitoring (RTM) system has been devised for use with NPWT for home care patients.
Beta-propeller protein-associated neurodegeneration (BPAN) is a very rare, X-linked dominant (XLD) inherited member of the neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) disease family.
Introduction: Epileptic spasms are seizures usually associated with a severe developmental epilepsy syndrome with onset in the first year of life, peaking between 3 and 10 months of age . A variety of disorders can cause epileptic spasms, with the etiology driving management, prognosis, and overall outcome. Preexisting brain damage has been demonstrated in 60% to 90% of the cases reflecting pre-, peri-, or postnatal brain injury that may usually be determined by history and clinical neurologic examinati...
Despite the surveilling nature of technologies that allow caregivers to remotely monitor location, movements, or activities, the potential differences in comfort with remote monitoring between caregivers and care recipients have not been examined in depth. On the dyad and aggregate level, we compare preferences of older adult women and their adult children for three remote monitoring technologies. Their assessments of each technology's impact on privacy, safety, independence, freedom, relationship with fami...
Based on the findings of a prior study of CIED (Cardiac Implantable Electrical Device) remote monitoring (RM) frequency at the same center, the University of Michigan Congenital Heart Center (UMCHC) instituted a quality improvement (QI) change to reduce the frequency of routine CIED RM from every 2 months to every 3 months. The objective of this study is to determine the impact of this QI initiative to reduce workload without compromising patient care.
Stress can induce a serious epileptic encephalopathy that occurs during early infancy. Recent studies have revealed that prenatal stress exposure is a risk factor for the development of infantile spasms. Our previous work demonstrates that prenatal stress with betamethasone-induced alterations to the expression of the K/Cl co-transporter (KCC2) in gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) interneurons lowers the seizure threshold in exposed animals. Here, we further investigated the mechanisms involved in this KCC2 dy...
