To assess preliminary safety and efficacy of ganaxolone as adjunctive therapy for the treatment of primary seizure types in patients with genetically- or clinically-confirmed TSC-related epilepsy through the end of the 12 week treatment period.
Pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), a disease characterized by diffuse cystic changes in the lung, is a rare disorder that affects almost exclusively women. The main objectives of this study are to accurately evaluate the prevalence of LAM, the status of disease, the diagnosis and treatment, the quality of care, and the health related outcomes in China.
This is an open-label whole-body PET/CT study for investigating the value of 68Ga NEB PET imaging in the diagnosis and evaluation of lymphatic disorders including lymphedema, lymphangioma, lymphangioleiomyomatosis, plastic bronchitis, lymphadenopathy caused by rheumatoid arthritis, etc.
There had been much evidence in aspirin controlling tumorous conditions conducted by basic researches, especially through mammilian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway. The investigator observed efficacy of aspirin in the treatment of tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) in one child who got Kawasaki disease and in the addition four TSC patients with epilepsy. The investigator intend to evaluate whether aspirin would be an effective add-on treatment in TSC patients with refractory seizures.
This trial is conducted locally. The aim of this trial is assess the efficacy and a favorable benefit-risk ratio for nintedanib in the treatment of LAM at the dose of 150 mg bid
The purpose of this study is to characterize the developmental phenotype of ASD and ID and to identify biomarkers using advanced MRI methodology and electrophysiological biomarkers of synaptic function and connectivity predictive of ASD and ID presence and severity in patients with TSC. In addition, this study will be establishing infrastructure for the collection and storage of human bio-specimens, including genetic material, from TSC patients and their family members with ASD.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of bevacizumab and temsirolimus alone or in combination with valproic acid or cetuximab in treating patients with a malignancy that has spread to other places in the body or other disease that is not cancerous. Immunotherapy with bevacizumab and cetuximab, may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as valproic acid, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells,...
International, multicenter, observational, longitudinal study to identify biomarker/s for Tuberous Sclerosis Complex and to explore the clinical robustness, specificity, and long´-term variability of these biomarker/s
Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) is a multisystemic autosomal dominant disease that is characterized by the development of benign neoplasms in brain, kidney, lung, skin and heart. TSC is caused by mutations in TSC1 and/or TSC2 genes, which encode, respectively, hamartin and tuberin, that are involved in the regulation of cell proliferation, cell cycle and protein synthesis. Most patients exhibit dermatological, renal, neurological and pulmonary (lymphangioleiomyomatosis, LAM) manifestations. Neurological involvement include subependymal nodules, subependymal giant cell astrocytomas and cortical tubers. LAM is characterized by the...
This study aims to investigate the factors (clinical, care-related and genetic) affecting renal outcome in patients with TSC (Tuberous sclerosis complex)
