Intellectual Disability clinical trials at UCSF

3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Intellectual disability is when someone has limited mental abilities. UCSF has studies to help people with intellectual disabilities. One study is observing people with Rett Syndrome to learn more about it. Another study is following up with infants who had seizures to see how they develop.

  • Neonatal Seizure Registry - Developmental Functional EValuation

    open to eligible people ages 2-8

    The NSR-DEV study is a longitudinal cohort study of around 280 Neonatal Seizure Registry participants that aims to evaluate childhood outcomes after acute symptomatic neonatal seizures, as well as examine risk factors for developmental disabilities and whether these are modified by parent well-being.

  • Rett Syndrome Registry

    open to eligible people ages 0-99

    The Rett Syndrome Registry is a longitudinal observational study of individuals with MECP2 mutations and a diagnosis of Rett syndrome. Designed together with the IRSF Rett Syndrome Center of Excellence Network medical directors, this study collects data on the signs and symptoms of Rett syndrome as reported by the Rett syndrome experts and by the caregivers of individuals with Rett syndrome. This study will be used to develop consensus based guidelines for the care of your loved ones with Rett syndrome and to facilitate the development of better clinical trials and other aspects of the drug development path for Rett syndrome.

  • Intervention Utilizing a Computerized Cognitive Rehabilitation Program (D-kit/EF1)

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The goal of this exploratory clinical trial is to test the effects of the computerized cognitive rehabilitation program (D-kit/EF1) for children with borderline intellectual functioning or mild intellectual disability after its use. Participants will use the D-kit/EF1 program on an iOS device 5 times a week for 30 minutes each session, for a duration of 12 weeks. Researchers will compare treatment group that uses D-kit/EF1 with sham group that watches educational videos on the same iOS device.
