Aicardi Syndrome clinical trials at UCSF

1 research study open to eligible people

Aicardi syndrome is a condition that changes the brain's normal structure. UCSF is working on a study with Dr. Elliott Sherr about the genetic roots of this disease. The study is mainly about how Aicardi syndrome affects thinking and causes seizures.

    open to all eligible people

    Dr. Elliott Sherr and his collaborators at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) are studying the genetic causes of disorders of cognition and epilepsy, in particular disorders of brain development that affect the corpus callosum, such as Aicardi syndrome, as well as two additional brain malformations, polymicrogyria and Dandy-Walker malformation. The goal of the investigators' research is to use a better understanding of the underlying genetic causes as a foundation to develop better treatments for these groups of patients.
