Showing trials for
  • An Open-Label Extension of the Study XEN496 (Ezogabine) in Children With KCNQ2-DEE

    open to eligible people ages 1 month to 6 years

    To assess the long-term safety and tolerability of XEN496 in pediatric subjects with KCNQ2 developmental and epileptic encephalopathy (KCNQ2-DEE) who had participated in the primary study (XPF-009-301).

  • XEN496 (Ezogabine) in Children With KCNQ2 Developmental and Epileptic Encephalopathy

    open to eligible people ages 1 month to 6 years

    To investigate the potential antiseizure effects of adjunctive XEN496 (ezogabine) compared with placebo in children with KCNQ2 Developmental and Epileptic Encephalopathy (KCNQ2-DEE).

  • Brain Development Research Program

    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.

  • Human Epilepsy Project 2: Resistant Focal Seizures Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The HEP2 study is designed to better understand the challenges of living with focal seizures that do not respond to medication, by following 205 people with medication-resistant focal epilepsy over two years to measure changes in health status, healthcare costs, quality of life, and biomarkers of epilepsy severity and treatment response.
