Pilot Study of the Use of Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) Combined With Diffuse Correlation Spectroscopy (DCS) in Neurocognitive Disease as Compared to Healthy Neurotypical Controls

Background: Neurocognitive disorders affect how the brain uses oxygen. They may affect mental development in children. These disorders can be studied with imaging scans that use radiation; however, these methods are not ideal for research on children. Two technologies-functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS)-use light to detect changes in brain activity. These m...

A Phase 1/2 Intracerebroventricular and Intravitreal Administration of NGN-101 for Treatment of Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (NCL) Subtype 5 (CLN5) Disease

Summary: This is a prospective, non-randomized, open-label study of a single dose administration of gene therapy in children who are 3 to 9 years old with Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (Batten) Subtype 5 (CLN5) disease.

Investigations of Juvenile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (CLN3)

Background: CLN3, or Batten disease, is a genetic disorder. This deadly disease leads to decline of brain and nervous system functions. Symptoms of CLN3 typically occur between 4 and 7 years of age. They include changes in how a person sees, thinks, and moves. CLN3 can also cause seizures. No effective treatments for the disease are yet known. There is limited testing of potential therapies. Researchers want ...

Augmentation of Umbilical Cord Blood Transplantation for Inherited Metabolic Diseases With Intrathecal Administration of Human Umbilical Cord Blood-Derived Oligodendrocyte-Like Cells

Summary: The primary objective of the study is to determine the safety and feasibility of intrathecal administration of DUOC-01 as an adjunctive therapy in patients with inborn errors of metabolism who have evidence of early demyelinating disease in the central nervous system (CNS) who are undergoing standard treatment with unrelated umbilical cord blood transplantation (UCBT). The secondary objective of t...

Caregiving Networks Across Disease Context and the Life Course: A Comparative Longitudinal Study

Background: In the U.S., about 53 million informal, unpaid caregivers provide care to a person who is ill, is disabled, or has age-related loss of function. These caregivers may be adult children, spouses, parents, or others. The stress of providing long-term care affects caregivers health and well-being. Researchers want to learn more about this stress and its effects.

Natural History Study of Batten's CLN6 Disease

Summary: CLN6 is a rare, neurodegenerative disease that causes progressive loss of acquired skills with motor delay, visual loss, seizures and ataxia. The investigators propose a natural history study of this rare disorder since it is currently unknown. It is important to understand disease progression in CLN6 disease to be able to judge therapeutic efficacy as emerging therapies like gene therapy become a...

Cerliponase Alfa Observational Study

Summary: This is a multicenter, observational study for patients with a confirmed diagnosis of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis type 2 (CLN2 disease), also known as TPP1 deficiency, who intend to be or are currently being treated with cerliponase alfa. Patients receiving or expected to receive cerliponase alfa within 60 days of signing the informed consent form (ICF) may be eligible to enroll in the study, a...

ScreenPlus: A Comprehensive, Flexible, Multi-disorder Newborn Screening Program

Summary: ScreenPlus is a consented, multi-disorder pilot newborn screening program implemented in conjunction with the New York State Newborn Screening Program that provides families the option to have their newborn(s) screened for a panel of additional conditions. The study has three primary objectives: 1) define the analytic and clinical validity of multi-tiered screening assays for a flexible panel of d...

Clinical and Neuropsychological Investigations in Batten Disease

Summary: This study aims to assess the natural history of Batten disease (Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis) by obtaining information about the motor, behavioral, and functional capabilities of individuals with Batten disease. This study will also refine and validate the Unified Batten Disease Rating Scale (UBDRS) as a clinical rating instrument for Batten disease.

A Natural History and Outcome Measure Discovery Study of Variant Late Infantile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Type 5 (CLN5) and Variant Late Infantile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Type 7 (CLN7)

Summary: CLN5 and CLN7 are forms of Batten Disease, and neurodegenerative disorders in children causing psychomotor regression, seizures, blindness, loss of ambulation and premature death, and have no available treatments. The purpose of this study is to investigate the clinical characteristics and natural clinical progression of symptoms in individuals with CLN5 and CLN7. This natural history study is imp...

Intravitreal Enzyme Replacement Therapy to Prevent Retinal Disease Progression in Children With Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Type 2 (CLN2)

Summary: This is a phase I/II randomized, masked, clinical trial to determine the safety and efficacy of intravitreal administration of cerliponase alfa.

Natural History and Long Term Clinical Assessments of All Forms of Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinoses - Capturing Key Symptoms and Disease Progression as Part of the Independent, International NCL DEM-CHILD Patient Database

Summary: This is an observational study that aims at assessing the natural history of NCL diseases as part of the international DEM-CHILD Database. Patient data are collected from medical records, patient questionnaires and routine follow up clinical examinations with focus on assessing progression in key areas of disease such as motor, language, cognition, seizures, vision, and behavior. A local bioreposi...
