Comparison of Efficacy of Ketogenic Diet and ACTH Therapy Among Children With West Syndrome: A Pilot Randomized Control Trial

Summary: Children with West syndrome are prone to refractory seizures with poor neurocognitive outcome overall. The current standard of care consists of treatment with ACTH, but the grade of evidence is not high and not much RCTs are available. Ketogenic diet is an effective and well tolerated treatment option in drug refractory epilepsy and also in refractory west syndrome. In view of minimal side effects...

The Effect of Spa and Massage on Babies on Colic Symptoms: A Randomised Controlled Trial

For this reason, the study was planned to determine the effectiveness of nurses' baby SPA and massage practices in reducing colic symptoms in babies.

Genetics of Epilepsy and Related Disorders

Summary: Investigators at Boston Children's Hospital are conducting research in order to better understand the genetic factors which may contribute to disorders related to epilepsy. These findings may help explain the broad spectrum of clinical characteristics and outcomes seen in people with epilepsy.

A Phase I Open-Label Pilot Study to Investigate the Feasibility, Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Daily Administration of Tricaprilin in Subjects With Infantile Spasms

Summary: The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of tricaprilin in subjects with infantile spasms. This is a single-arm, open-label, pilot study in up to 10 subjects with infantile spasms.

Decreasing Parental Stress and Costs While Improving Overall Satisfaction of Caregivers of Infants With Infantile Spasms on ACTH Therapy Utilizing Innovative Telemedicine Technology: A Randomized Study

Summary: This study plans to learn more about how the use of new telemedicine technology can help with parental stress, costs, and overall satisfaction in care. Investigators are studying this in families who have children with a specific seizure type called infantile spasms and being treated with a medication called ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone). Infantile spasms is a rare epileptic encephalopathy th...

A Clinical Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Retinoic Acid in Patients With 15q11-q13 Duplication Syndrome

So far, autism remains a clinical dilemma with no effective therapy. The most common chromsomal ability among ASD patients is 15q11-13q duplication syndrome(dup15q syndrome).Clinical phenotypes of dup15q sy...

Efficacy of Vigabatrin With High Dose Prednisolone Combination Therapy Versus Vigabatrin Alone for Infantile Spasm: a Randomized Trial

Summary: Infantile spasms (IS) are seizures associated with a severe infantile epileptic encephalopathy. Both cessation of spasms and electrographic response are necessary for the best neurodevelopmental outcomes. Adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH), or prednisolone, or vigabatrin are considered the first-line treatment individually. However, ACTH expense and availability are the barriers in developing cou...
