Aicardi Syndrome clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Aicardi Syndrome is a condition that affects brain development and can cause seizures. There is a clinical trial at UCSF called the Brain Development Research Program. Doctors are researching the genetic causes of cognitive disorders and epilepsy, specifically focusing on Aicardi Syndrome. If you or someone you know has Aicardi Syndrome, you may be eligible to participate in this study.
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.
