    Clinical trials

    Trial
    Neuroscience Institute

    Sleep for Stroke Management and Recovery Trial

    Active recruiting

    The primary goals of this study are to determine whether treatment of obstructive sleep apnea with positive airway pressure starting shortly after accute ischemic stroke or high risk TIA (1) reduces recurrent stroke, acute coronary syndrome, and all-cause mortality 6 months after the event and (2) improves stroke outcomes at 3 months in patients who experienced ischemic stroke.

    Trial

    18-513: A Randomized Clinical Trial of Andexanet Alfa in Acute Intracranial Hemorrhage in Patients Receiving an Oral Factor XA Inhibitor

    Active not recruiting

    18-513:  The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of andexanet alfa (andexanet) versus usual care on the rate of effective homostasis.

    Trial
    Neurology

    A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Multicenter, Phase 3 Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of XEN1101 as Adjunctive Therapy in Primary Generalized Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    Active recruiting

    The primary objective is to assess the effect of XEN1101 versus placebo on reducing PGTCS frequency in subjects with PGTCS.

    Trial
    Neurology

    A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Multicenter Phase 3 Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of XEN1101 as Adjunctive Therapy in Focal-Onset Seizures

    Active recruiting

    The primary objective of this study is to assess the effect of XEN1101 versus placebo on reducing focal seizure frequency.

    Trial
    Neurology

    An Open-Label, Multicenter, Outpatient Extension Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of Staccato Alprazolam in Study Participants 12 Years of Age and Older with Stereotypical Prolonged Seizures

    Active recruiting

    The primary endpoint of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of Staccato alprazolam.

    Trial
    Neurology

    A Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Multicenter, Outpatient, Parallel-Group Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Staccato Alprazolam in Study Participants 12 Years of Age and Older with Stereotypical Prolonged Seizures

    Active recruiting

    The purpose of this study is to compare the success of a single admnistration of Staccato alprazolam compared with placebo in rapidly terminating a seizure episode within 90seconds after IMP administration.

    Trial
    Neurology

    Safety and Therapeutic Measures of Transcranial Cathodal Direct Current Stimulation (TDCS) in Patients with Refractory Focal Epilepsy

    Active recruiting

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate efficacy, safety, and tolerability of repeated, daily sessions of transcranial cathodal direct current stimulation (tDCS).

    Trial
    Neurology

    Sleep for Stroke Management and Recovery Trial

    Active recruiting

    The primary goals of this study are to determine whether (1) treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with positive airway pressure after acute ischemic stroke or high risk TIA reduces recurrent stroke, acute coronary syndrome (ACS), and all-cause mortality 6 months after the event, and (2) treatment of OSA shortly after acute ischemic stroke improves stroke outcomes at 3 months.
