Rolandic Epilepsy is the most common form of childhood epilepsy. It is classified as idiopathic, age-related epilepsy syndrome with benign evolution. The absence of neuropsychological impairment is part of the criteria of benignity of this epilepsy syndrome. However recently have been suggested several deficits related to attention and language. The purpose of this study was assess school performance and to investigate problems of praxis in patients with rolandic epilepsy as co...
One in 3 epilepsy patients have refractory seizures. This drug resistance is likely related to the over expression of multidrug resistance proteins (MDR). Progesterone is a known inhibitor of MDRs and the low level of this hormone during the menstrual cycle may exacerbate seizures, perhaps explaining catamenial epilepsy; i.e. seizures occurring during the menstrual cycle. Verapamil suppresses seizures in animal models of epilepsy perhaps by inhibiting MDRs and thus may help pat...
The aim of this study is to determine the role of SISCOM (see below) in aiding clinicians to manage epilepsy surgery candidates. SISCOM is already a routine component of pre-surgical epilepsy evaluation at Mayo Clinic. In particular, we are interested in assessing whether use of SISCOM can minimize the need for prolonged (>24 hours) invasive monitoring with electrodes placed on the surface of the brain prior to surgical resection. Note: this study has recruited the required nu...
The prevalence of comorbid depression in patients with epilepsy is as high as 30-50%. The depressive symptoms severely affect seizure severity and quality of life in patients with epilepsy. The aim of this study is to register the diagnosis and treatment for depression in patients with epilepsy from the East China, determining the incidence rate of comorbid depression in patients with epilepsy and the choices for the antidepressant treatment. At the same time, neuroimaging data...
To determine factors beyond obesity which contribute to diabetes and cardiovascular risk in Mexicans and Mexican Americans. To test the hypothesis that at any given level of adiposity Mexican Americans will be more insulin resistant than Anglos and that the insulin resistance in Mexican Americans is proportional to the degree of Native American ancestry.
The goal of this study is to learn if the study drug RAD001 can reduced the number of epileptic seizures, and can be taken safety by people who have epilepsy associated with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the chromosomal regions that contain genes that raise the risk of epilepsy in families by performing genetic linkage analysis of idiopathic/cryptogenic epilepsy.
The purpose of this research is to study the safety and effectiveness of electrical stimulation to treat uncontrolled seizures in adults with epilepsy.
This study will assess the effectiveness of the ketogenic diet (high-fat, low-carbohydrate, and moderate protein) in treating epilepsy. Two study groups will be comprised of children with epilepsy (0-18 years of age) and whether or not they receive the ketogenic diet - epilepsy/ketogenic diet and epilepsy/non-ketogenic diet.
Pharmacoresistant epilepsy remains around 30% despite the development of 25 anti epileptic drugs. Of course, this can be explained by pharmacoresistant epileptic brain diseases, as exemplified by some genetic diseases. However, the lack of specific guidelines for the choice of the anti epileptic drugs (apart from generalized and partial epilepsy) and the very large number of drugs with different and sometimes complex metabolism are challenges for neurologists. Among the 30 % of...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients with epilepsy exhibiting impaired dCA, which may contribute to subsequent stroke.
The purpose of this study is to collect subject data to evaluate the rate of sudden unexplained death in epilepsy (SUDEP) with bilateral neurostimulation of the anterior nucleus of the thalamus in people diagnosed with refractory epilepsy. The data obtained from the physician initiated studies will be pooled with data collected in Medtronic-sponsored studies to assess SUDEP risk.
The study will evaluate the effectiveness and safety of an investigational drug-ganaxolone - on partial seizure frequency in adults with epilepsy taking a maximum of 3 antiepileptic medications (AEDs). The study will also evaluate the effectiveness of ganaxolone in females with catamenial epilepsy. Catamenial epilepsy refers to a relationship between seizure frequency and a woman's menstrual cycle, where the number of seizures increases around the time of a woman's menst...
The purpose of this study is to identify patient characteristics (such as baseline seizure frequency) that may predict effective doses of topiramate using just that one drug (monotherapy) as initial therapy for epilepsy. Topiramate is an anti-epileptic drug that is approved for the treatment of epilepsy in adults and children 2 years of age and above.
The long-term goal of this research is to improve seizure control among patients with epilepsy, which has the potential to improve quality of life for thousands of people living with epilepsy and reduce health care utilization, social and economic costs, and epilepsy-related mortalities. Participants who are suffering from epilepsy will be randomized to receive usual care (UC), a smartphone-based self-management intervention called Management of Risks in Epilepsy (MORE), or MOR...
This will be a cross-sectional study enrolling 200 outpatients/inpatients with treatment resistant partial epilepsy for at least two years, receiving 1-3 AEDS. The study will consist of one or two visits, each lasting 1-2 hours. All subjects will complete Visit 1. Twenty five percent of the subjects will return for Visit 2. The study will assess the prevalence of depression and suicidal thoughts and the feasibility of using the proposed psychiatric rating scales in future epi...
Beyond 60 years, the prevalence of epilepsy is estimated at approximately 1% and increases with age. In these patients, the etiology of epilepsy is unknown in 25% of cases, even up to 55% after 65 years. Although new-onset epilepsy in the elderly is associated with a vascular disease in 50% of cases, the hypothesis of an ongoing neurodegenerative process, including an Alzheimer's disease (AD), is also common. However, investigators do not have any marker that might help to iden...
This trial consists of 2 parts: a double-blinded phase and an open-label extension phase. The blinded phase only will be described in this record. Participants will be randomized in a 4:1 ratio to receive GWP42003-P or matching placebo. The hypothesis is that levels of stiripentol (STP) or valproate (VPA) may be altered (increased or decreased) as a result of using GWP42003-P.
Epilepsy is one of the most common chronic neurological diseases, affecting 300,000 Canadians. One in 3 epilepsy patients have refractory seizures meaning that all antiseizure drugs fail to control their seizures. This drug resistance in epilepsy may be related to the over expression of multidrug resistance proteins (MDR). Varapamil inhibits MDR. We propose to add verapamil/placebo to patients' anti epilepsy medication for 3 months. Patients who receive placebo will have verapa...
The purpose of this study is to develop the electronic management platform for children with epilepsy, establish large data of Chinese children with epilepsy and explore its biological etiology.
Nearly 2% of veterans >65 are actively treated for epilepsy, and the incidence is projected to increase with the aging of our society. Since commonly used antiepileptic drugs are considered suboptimal for older patients, it is important to understand existing patterns of treatment for older veterans with epilepsy.
The goal of this project is the development of an EEG-cap (min. 21 electrodes) with user-friendly active dry electrodes that meets the expectations of the users regarding comfort and esthetics, without losing sight of the functional and technical demands for recording high quality EEG signals. The purpose is to use the EEG-cap to investigate clinical neurological disorders (e.g. epilepsy). The EEG-cap could also be used at home so that hospital admission in the EMU can be avoid...
The Ketogenic diet is a now proven, evidence based treatment of refractory epilepsy. the classic ketogenic diet (KD) is based on a ratio of fat to carbohydrate and protein, usually 3:1 or 4:1. Fat is proven long-chain triglycerides. The efficacy of the KD has been proven by many multicenter trials. But, side effects of ketogenic diet therapy is severe. The modified atkins diet (MAD) was designed and investigated at Johns Hopkins Hospital, which aimed to propose a less restricti...
This trial consists of 2 parts: a double-blinded phase and an open-label extension phase. The open-label extension phase only will be described in this record. All participants will receive the same dose of GWP42003-P. However, investigators may subsequently decrease or increase the participant's dose until the optimal dose is found.
