Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||6 Years - 30 Years|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

There is no optional treatment for patients with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and refractory epilepsy.The investigator observed efficacy of aspirin in the treatment of in one child who got Kawasaki disease. Subsequent adjunctive aspirin therapy in four patients yielded a reducted frequency of seizure for 51.2-89.7%. The investigator intend to evaluate whether aspirin would be an effective add-on treatment in TSC patients with refractory seizures. Refractory epilepsy was defined as more than 8 times of epileptic events in 4 weeks at baseline, and had been given more than two antiepileptic drugs maintaining for more than 3 months.TSC patients aged 6-30 years' old would be recruited with refractory seizures and randomly assigned to two groups, aspirin and antiepileptic drugs(AEDS) group and placebo-AEDS group after written informed consent be obtained. Patients and their guardians would be instructed to record their own seizure diary on the epileptic events and report monthly.The primary outcome would be reduction of seizure frequency (measured by average seizure frequency and response rate). The secondary outcome would include seizure-free days, seizure-free rates, changes in EEG, changes of facial angiofibromas, and exposure-response relationship analysis.The study is designed as a placebo-controlled, randomized, blinded evaluation trial.
